Resistance 2: The Latest

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 25, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

If you’ve read updated (and glowing) impressions of Resistance 2 this week, it’s down to the fact that Insomniac Games demonstrated all 3 modes (campaign, online co-op, competitive multiplayer) in LA and New York over the past few days.

I’ll leave the commentary to the professionals, but with the open beta on the horizon, I asked a few questions on behalf of those of you who haven’t yet gone hands-on with the beta (you know, 99.98% of you).

In this video, Insomniac’s James Stevenson explains what’s going into R2 during these final few weeks, what to expect in the upcoming public beta, and why your input is still very important, even in the late stages of development.

You heard him, the Insom team will be talking community soon, look for more details here.

Hello jeff. Cant wait for R2. Do you know if the resistance beta will be handled a little better than socom. I bought the june episode 1 of qore and still havent recieved my code for socom. I’ve emailed “POLITELY” several times to sony and still no code. Will we have the same problems with the resistance beta, or are things being done differently? My psn Id: explosive78

This is the 2nd time today this was posted. LOL

I have my copy pre-ordered but haven’t received my beta code yet.

I can’t wait for 60 players online at once.

Wow im so excited but I have a question. Offline Coop was the main thing I played in the first one and I was wondering if there is still offline coop in R2 and if it is the same as online coop but with 2 people.

Thanks

*** FIRMWAR UPDATE SUGGESTIONS*****
1) update ps3 web browser and flash player or just put in google chrome/ firefox instead.

2)in game chat/ cross game invites.

man, this is going to be a busy, busy fall…I may just have to clone myself to be able to play all these great games!

any word on how long the single player game is supposed to take to finish?

is this game longer/shorter than the first one?

just wondering, i have to purchase wisely!

thanks!

+ FritoZ on September 25th, 2008 at 3:59 pm said:

@10 outkast

I was just thinking the same thing-
with all the great games, it would be great to have cross game invites and in game chat with no microphone feedback…thanks!

If I end up broke in 09 I blame sony, and no that is not a bad thing. Sony is really exciting this year and besides resistance 2 I am getting 2 other games in nov. not including psn titles but once those are included then i go broke lol. keep it up sony, you’re doing a phenomenal job this year

Loved Girl with a stick beta! It sold me on the game… then again, I enjoyed RFOM enough to buy R2 without hesitation.

@23

You get e-mailed the code which you take to Account Manager > Transactions > Enter Promo Code > “Enter it here”

Not sure if that’s what the labels are, but it’s something like that :D

+ BZKlint on September 25th, 2008 at 4:53 pm said:

(sry for double posting)

Oh yeah, forgot to ask.

Do you play R1 online Jeff?
Cause I’m addicted! And as I said up ^there^, I’m almost Supreme Commander now! :D

+ Radikal_dreamer on September 25th, 2008 at 8:06 pm said:

Can you find out from them if you can play 2 player co op on the same console, and whether this means through the main campaign or just the other co op? Me and my friend played through Fall of Man, and we’re both looking forward to this, but I don’t know if I’ll buy it if we can’t play on the same console.

+ senjutsu_dav on September 25th, 2008 at 8:20 pm said:

My god, James Stevenson talk really fast!!!

PS: I’m wondering if there is an opening to explain the story of the 1st one a bit or you absolutly need to play it to understand resistance 2?

Thanks

So really, could there be any better time to own a PS3??? I’m up to my ears in goodies this week. Let’s see, first I got 34/64 of the Burnout Paradise trophies in my last sitting, still haven’t bought WipEout HD (Which is killing me btw!!) but do plan to… I should have an LBP beta key headed my way soon, Home is due to go open beta any day now, Resistance 2 is inching closer to that same status, and let’s not forget about Killzone 2 in February! I better accumulate some massive funding soon… :D

Yes it has co-op offline split screen, I think it may even support dual online split screen (don’t quote me on that)…
Between this and LBP, and a splash of Socom… life will be little else but a dark room, coffee, and creepy grinning face lit by a large screen tv…

Thanks for listening to your fans, Insomniac. And the game sure looks great, though all the focus on online multi-player personally isn’t my cup of tea.

I still miss a fact sheet with information like local co-op split-screen, local+online co-op split-screen, and being able to choose from your friends when starting a network co-op game instead of just random fights.
