We know what some of you are thinking: “Well, Resistance 2 has shipped—I betcha Insomniac is sitting back, cracking a cold one, and taking it easy ‘til after the holidays.” In the words of ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso: NOT so fast, my friend! We’ve been on the message boards reading your Resistance 2 feedback, letting it soak in, and working diligently on patches (Yes, more updates are on the way, and no, I don’t have a definitive date for the next patch. But trust me—it’s in the works). We also have some really cool new community features coming to MyResistance.net over the next few weeks. Expect another blog post soon with more details.
Now, since this is the holiday season, we figured it was time to provide you with some Resistance-related gifts that won’t do any damage to your wallet. Here we go:
Resistance 2 PS3 Themes: As if your PlayStation 3 hadn’t been subjected to enough of the Chimeran invasion, the attacks continue this Thursday with some brand-new Resistance 2 themes for your console. Insomniac’s art team put together three sweet-looking themes, each sporting multiple wallpapers. Here’s a peek at “Man vs. Chimera,” which you’ll be able to download from the PlayStation Store:
Resistance: Fall of Man Map Packs—Now Free: If you haven’t had a chance to try out R:FOM’s download-only multiplayer maps before, well, now you have no excuse. Starting tomorrow, both map packs will be available free of charge through the PlayStation Store. Just remember, though—these maps are only compatible with the first Resistance.
New Resistance 2 Trailer: Free PS3 themes and map packs won’t be the only reason to visit the PlayStation Store on 12/11. We’ve also cut a new Resistance 2 trailer, which features some really epic moments from the game. I’d say it’s my favorite trailer we’ve put together for this title.
And before I go, a quick programming note: Tune into G4’s X-Play this Friday at 8 p.m. EST, as Ted Price, Insomniac’s founder and CEO, will be co-hosting the episode. Ted will be discussing Resistance 2’s development, answering viewer questions, and even revealing his top five games of all time. Some of his choices may surprise you.
