Resistance Developer Goes Multi-Platform Thanks to EA

It seems that this generation will be defined as one of the last that we see platform exclusives.  We've seen Bungie go from Microsoft to Activision for an upcoming multiplatform title, and now another major "2nd party" studio is Insominiac - famous for the Resistance and Ratchet and Clank franchises - are now partnered with EA to bring a brand new franchise to multiple platforms.

Resistance 2 Patch Available, Split Screen Fix Incoming

Insomniac has just released a new patch for the 8 player co-op shooter Resistance 2.  The patch is version 1.40 and it should be available by the time you read this.  What does it fix?  Lots of stuff, but the most important being the restoration of any character resets you may have had.  Some folks have reported issues with level progression and found their character data reset to level 1.  The good news is this patch should not only restore your previous character state, but tack on any progression you've gained since.  So your level 20 medic for co-op that should have been a level 40 medic will really be a level 40!  Very nice!

Insomniac Co-Op Lead Designer Discusses Resistance 2

We looked at experiences like Team Fortress 2, in which there are dependencies on classes, and games like World of Warcraft, in which there are large amounts of people working in tandem, creating this kind of epic synergy to overcome these encounters that wouldn't be overcomeable as an individual. We really wanted to focus on teamwork and the buzz that comes from people working together online, because even though there's some downtime when you're not playing together, the buzz is that much higher when the group locks together and everything falls into place.

Resistance 2 Split Screen Co-Op Problems?

One of the key titles in this year's PS3 holiday lineup is Resistance 2.  Many features we love here at Co-Optimus have been implemented, such as an 8 player co-op campaign and local split screen co-op.  However, it appears there are some serious issues with the latter.  Co-Optimus reader "blakepro" was the first to bring this to our attention, in a forum post.  However, it seems the word is out, as you can read in this snippet from a review at PS3Blog.net:
