The world debut gameplay footage of this year's highly anticipated Resistance 2 and more.
OMG :| Where the hell did my jaw go! :| Awesome, truly epic:|
watch 05:22 Have I just seen Godzilla??? :) 09:30 You can swim!
Cloverfield meets I am Legend.
*hears something crack under foot* er..sorry dude. *picks up jkhan's jaw* I'm sure a dentist can fix it..Maybe..sorry again. But hey you don't need a jaw to play a game, just some hands w/ thumbs and enough fingers. oh and I suppose eyes and ears. but yah... EDIT: @chuck lol so true, so true. And any Gamer would actually find a way. Why? Because that's what we do, find a way.
"you don't need a jaw to play a game, just some hands w/ thumbs and enough fingers" I bet that even if you had your hands cut-off, you would still find a way to play this game with your feet.
Graphically, it's an improvement, but not a vast improvement. I'm a PS3 fanboy, but I'm honestly not TOO amazed by what Insomniac has thus far. The graphics aren't a HUGE, huge upgrade from Resistance 1 like I was expecting or hoping for (at one point, based on the early scans, we were actually thinking along the lines of a competitor to Crysis!), while the gameplay looks rather conventional. As far as upcoming FPS games, I'm more looking forward to Killzone 2, Far Cry 2, Fallout 3, and maybe even Project Origin. Of course, this footage is sub-HD, and a little dark/grainy in the first place, so I'll reserve judgment on the graphics until I see more.
It’s still five months away so I’m sure it’s going to be better looking by then, but I love the intensity of the game play, I loved the 1st one and this looks miles better.
November is officially Sony's b!tch, and Resistance 2 is the playmate of the month.
Man I just got horny watching that video.
Then again, after looking at the video more closely, there are some aspects of the graphics that impress me on a technical level, such as the large scale of the environments, nice set design with the retro, 50's under-construction Chicago, and good detail to the levels considering the size and scale. The enemies, such as the Grim, seem to have nice detail when they get up-close also. One slight bummer, at least to my eyes, however, is the apparent lack of dynamic lighting; it seems Insomniac opted for prebaked lightmaps rather than a universal shadow-casting lighting model a la GTAIV, COD4, MGS4, and Crysis. Though in their mind, that might be, in the end, the best solution in accordance with them and their design goals. At the very least, it's a positive that the framerate seems consistent, even at this early stage, and perhaps as they optimize the game further down the line, there may additional be improvements to the graphics.
An incredible looking game on all fronts. This is the must have game this year. Killzone what? The grims look so bad ass.
wow siligon keep this up and we might like u more but killzone is not coming in 08 so yeah
hahahaha there is no defferwence between res 1 and 2 graphically when asked about new gameplay fooatge no answer haha nothing new res 2 is crap looking atleatd thought it would match cod4 in graphics not not close dont even mention gears 2 cause that a whole new zone this game qwill bomb and im happy it will.
Keep dreaming poos3. This game gonna beat Call of Duty 4 in the graphics department and that piece of s#!t you call Halo3, just wait and see...
Much like in every episode of GTTV, the provided embed code for videos won't work properly on this site. My sincerest apologies.
All that matters is that the beautiful and lush visuals of Resistance 2 can be seen by all.
thx for delayin Killzone2 to Feb 09 ... (reasons :more polish, RESISTANCE 2) absolutely EPIC EDIT: the attention to environment details is amazing,HDR is amazing too . all Unreal engine 3 games have Blurry range with ultra lowres texture or poor animation.. but just look at the chicago streets u can see a chimera 150 meter away runnig toward you !! the only thing thats not as awesome as other parts is Weapon details & few textures.. both will be polished for sure.. :) another AAA game from insomniac ..
Resistance 2 looks set to deliver another immersing and epic FPS journey,the graphics are fantastic,animations have been greatly improved,and my oh my was that a 300 foot boss I just saw!?!!? I can't wait to buy this game!
I don't think that one was 300 feet tall. That was was more like 150 feet 8D. This game will WITHOUT A DOUBT be ridiculous and EPIC. It will be a AAA. I love the haters. This game will be a HUGE AAA game.
They just can't accept the fact that a studio known for developing AAA games are going to deliver yet another AAA game. The graphics looks absolutely stunning,I don't think people have quite absorbed the amount of detail yet.Whether or not Gears of War 2 looks better than Resistance 2 is another topic altogether,I think it's great that both games are coming out in the same time frame,as this means we'll get to see the final builds of each and a lot of other media to determine whether or not Insomniac have created a game with visuals to rival the current console graphics king,KillZone 2. 2008 is looking to be another great year for gamers!
Who says that was the monster Price was talking about? =)
sweet............ looks bad as and fun, u hve to be a blind fan boi to say the graphics do not look sick,...!!! R2 FTW then KILLZONE 2 FTW !!!
The graphics are just so detailed it's ridiculous.
is it just me or did he not say that,..this game is looking really sweet and big, the boss battles will be mind blowing.
Hopefully the official trailer right before E3 will showcase some of them!
Resistance 1.5 confirmed Gears will own this again If you disagree you are a re7ard
this looks much more fun than Gears of war to me, The site of those enemies all running at Hale, each with their own AI, was immense. Say what you like about the Graphics, it's not finished so I wont judge, but seeing as you're forcing a comparison I can't help but say that I'd rather play a game which has a lot of enemies that know what they're doing ( shown in that video ) rather than a lot of enemies running in a group doing nothing really ( shown in Gears footage ) Both will still be great games, shut up and appreciate what's on offer
no we are not retarded u r if u cant c that resistance 2 will beat gears2 then ur retarted first resistnce 1 was a launch title, while gears wasnt it was released 1 year after the launch of the 360 resistance 2 has many new thing weapons, 8 player online co-op with same lenght as the campain but different storyline. 30 vs 30 online matches 3x the enmy on screen then gears and there actually smart and many more while gears has new chainsaw move oh wow new weapons but same effects as the old one wow more enemy but there fukin retarted so tell me wat looks better and sound better dude look at the new enemy hella running at hale popping out of no were and not just runnig around like a retard, but actually trying to kill hale
Gears of War 1.5 my ass. Yes, it will own a game that's set to have 60 players online. The 360 couldn't do something like this-I'm sure of it. This game looks awesome and it'll probably be yet another AAA title. You fail.
time to jump out xbollox
I WISH I COULD ANSWER THE QUESTIONS SO i COULD POST NEWS :(
hahaa same. Im too stupid.
Personally, I think Hale sucks as a protagonist. PS: Gatling gun looks amazing.
It's so frustrating the way the gameplay is divided up so much! Looking absolutely beautiful though. I'll just have to wait for the full gameplay videos that will come up later.
are you serious?? COD4 look hell better than this, well like the previous game nothing more than an 8/10. Gears of War 2 will win again, ok then back to MGS4 i got it tonight, killing some frogs, watching marilyn eyes, this guy jhony hahaha funny guy but he is hidding something mmmmm, ok lets go and find Liquid.
Ya, it just looks terrible for alpha build (sarcasm).
Actually the texture resolution already looks allot better than COD4, not to mention the details on the floor, houses, enemies etc. COD4 only look impressive to me because of its lightning and 60fps, everything else was just average in terms of graphics.
Imagine this game was a 360 exclusive...would anyone really care... In complete honesty , no fanboyism , would people care as much ? Anyway overall looks good , well it'll be a good game for ps3 owners cuz they dont have too many shooters. But I dont think it would be a smart move for them to go directly against Geow 2. By the way who said they were going against Geow 2 anyway ? Sony , Insomniac ? Fanboys ? They two games arnt even comparable.
Why I care about it is because R:fom was my first, this gen game. Also the first fps I played in a long time, as well as going through it with my GF. Sniper chick she is, sniper chick she is. And honestly I'm looking forward to this game because it's Insomniac made. I love Insomniac. EDIT: what is everybodies prob why can't you guys ever shorten to wolf? NOOOOO, it's always moon, or something...you know what..screw you guys, I'm going home.
Exactly right moon. The reason it has so much hype is that it's insomniac. Overall it looks good but I have absolute faith in that company.
When two games are released at the same time window and caters to the same demographic, it's fair to compare the said two games.
Wolf, I did the same on the first Resistance, my GF and I went through the campaign together and we both had a blast! Although she likes to play sniper in other games, she played front line with me, her grenades were uncannily accurate to begin with (the accuracy she had of landing one at my feet was spooky! =) ) but by the end we were running like a well oiled machine and it was the Chimera fearing her more than me. I think the first Resistance had us coming back and playing levels from chapter select more than any other FPS ever. The vehicle levels were always a joy. Looking forward to do it all over again but bigger and badder!
that reminds me Tala:"hey what does this button do (L1)" *Boom* both dead lmao. great times, great times. We beat it on hard and then superhuman and both time were a blast. God, I hate angels! We buy nearly every Co-op game that comes out, because of resistance. oh and thanks for using wolf, though I wasn't really all that angry above I was just messing w/ people lol.
Just let the reiviews speak for Resistance 2 when it releases. Its going to be a huge AAA game. Its guaranteed.
to be honest its an improvement but i just cant see this outperforming gears 2 gameplay wise and graphics wise
Bro Resistance is just about putting down normal maps all over the envronment look bumped. That is what Gears and the Unreal Engine does. This game will be MUCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and I MEAN MUCHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHH bigger than Gears of War. They REALLY ARE 2 TOTALLY different games. Resistance is probably more like Halo gameplay wise than anything. Lets just let the reviews speak for itself. This game is guaranteed a AAA game. If not, make fun of me and remember I said that. But it will be. We haven't seen ANYHTING yet. Its going to be freaking crazy.
It's a VERY equal playing field at this point,whereas Gears 2 succeeds in creating a certain graphical grittiness to it that creates the consuming atmosphere,Resistance 2 excels in an amazing amount of detail and polish that creates the world of Nathan Hale. The funny thing is,while we're busy debating whether or not Gears of War 2 looks better than Resistance 2,Guerrilla Games are hard at work polishing up the most jaw dropping console title of this gen.
But its not really that hard to out perform GeoW2's stale old cover shoot cover shoot cover shoot cover shoot.. saw a guy in half cover .. shoot cover shoot cover... gameplay mechanics... very very boring if you ask me... Graphicly..? umm GeoW2 looks almost identical to the first one but with better lighting.. while R2 has major improvments in texture! Also R2 has much more happening on screen at all times! and when R2 has 100-200 enemies on screen they are actually trying to attack you and not just run in the backround...
Resistance 2 is a First Person Shooter....so is Killzone 2 and Halo 3. Gears 2 is a Third Person Shooter like Socom Confrontation and Warhawk.
colorful ray guns? purple lasers? looks lame compared to Killzone imo graphics suck compared to killzone
they have a different aproach in comparison to the developers at Guerila games. Insomniac have said that they like to get everything working and running first, then they want to start the optomising. If the textures reach the standards of those water effects then we're in for a treat. guerrila are optomising as they go along, just getting the wuality up constantly. they have to do it like this as they are trying to live up to that infamous trailer. If they don't show progress people will eat it up and give it a ton of negative press.
apples to oranges. 2 different perspectives, 2 great games. Both will be fun just in different ways.
all console games are put to shame.Resistance 2 looks great,you'd have to be a bit dazed to not see how slick the graphics are looking.
Resistance = Independence Day, I am Legend, Cloverfield Killzone = Starship Troopers, and I dunno lol... they are very different game. Resistance will seriously probably destroy Killzone 2 in gameplay. But we haven't seen ANYTHING yet...from either title.
@ 360 man in the Gamer Zone "to be honest its an improvement but i just cant see this outperforming gears 2 gameplay wise and graphics wise" Graphics wise is a maybe, but what the hell you you talking about with the "gameplay wise" Gameplay in R1 kills GeOW, yes I enjoyed GeOW but all the gameplay consisted of was run, hide and shoot, then repeat. Very linear, just like GeOW2 is looking like its gonna turn out.
If that is the case, how come GoW got better reviews, sold much much more copies, won GOTY awards and was the most played game on XBOX Live for a very long time? Because it wasn't as fun to play as Resistance? I don't think so.
let me answer that janzo because of hype, first good looking game that time, and the best coversystem a game had. but now games did many thing over the time. even better coversystem and graphics then gears 1. thats why it sold and got high score but now look at resistance 2 did u see that big @ss monster in the trailer and its confirmed the biggest boss is like 300 ft high. look at the enemy how they run around like zombies and there actually trying to kill hale. dude ur fukin retarted if u dont see that resistance 2 is better then gears 2. this game is so epic
HÄ since when was GOW released on Live, its a Sony Franchise you mean GeoW
If you want overhyped games check out Haze or Lair. Not to be mean or anything, but all I saw was a game trying hard to be Sonys answer to Halo, just like the first one. I didn't see any new gameplay elements at all, just a game copying what's already been done more than once before. Nathan Hale(Master Chief) is humanitys hope against a much more advanced species called the Chimera(Covenant). There is also a species no one knows much about called the Cloven(The Flood). The enemies running towards you like a swarm = The Flood Big big monsters = Scarabs Chimera = Covenant Only carry 2 weapons at a time = Halo Also, the settings echoed Half-Life 2 too much to feel original. In order to compete graphically with GeoW 2 they need to implement much more detail, destructable environments and some kind of physics. I didn't see any at all, not even when the enemies fall to the ground. The animations looked like something out of Duke Nukem 3D. Let's see who's retarded come November =)
please no more than 12 additional blurry polygons for the XTARDS otherwise, woho... nextgen TOASTER is gonna FRY, and the PIGS are gonna CRY, LOL!
Wow, R2 looks really good from this video! 300ft. bosses? omg, that'd be so awesome! The idea alone reminds me of Shadow of the Colossus, which is a brilliant game. ;) I'm totally stoked for what Insomniac has in store for us. :D
lots enemies on screen .........check great lightning .................check enormous bosses.................check great gameplay on and offline...check but i have to say that as of now the graphics only look slightly better than the first resistance. i was expecting a much better improvement than this.
"but i have to say that as of now the graphics only look slightly better than the first resistance. i was expecting a much better improvement than this" Agree but funny how Geow 2 looks like Geow 1.5 and Res 2 that has only a slight improvement in graphics and lightning (funny ! EXACTLY like Geow 1.5) isnt considered as Res 1.5 according to Sony diehard standards. You see guys you shouldnt hype a game based on pure fanboy speculation.How are you guys going to diss Geow 2 now ? Good luck !
actually I'm with you on this one. i didn't think geow2 looked any better than the first one at all. I'm just saying after the jump insomniac had with their engine in ratchet & clanck TOD i was hoping for something jaw dropping here. but like a couple of you said, we are playing MGS now and we have been a little spoiled in the graphics department. at the end of the day I'll hold judgment until the game is released.
Gears of War 2 does not offer anything significant over Gears of War 1. Resistance 2 on the other hand.. I can't wait to play this game online.
replied to wrong comment lol(edit).
It looks like they still haven't fully implemented R2 graphical assets yet. You can tell b/c short of some flying drones and the rushing chimera hybrids there isn't really much to look at yet.
this is a fps and gears 2 is a tps,.....if u want to do a comparsion u should do it between to third person shooters and that will be MGS4 VS GEARS OF WAR 2,....and we all know who is the winner >>>>> do i need to say it !! SNAKE SNAKE SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE !!
Uncharted? wth do you have against Naughty Dog, huh?! though I dunno if I can choose between MGS4 and Uncharted. (btw did not include 360 games in comparison do to, I have not played them yet)
