Developer Insomniac Games has send out some Tweets about the new Ratchet & Clank for Sony's PS4, the Resistance I.P. and the Spyro I.P.
"No plans for R4" :( Resistance 3 was crazy under rated.
Great game! I'd like to see a new Resistance game.
Resistance 3 is crazy OVER rated as far as the franchise goes. Too many people talk about it as if it were the best in the series, when it was probably the worst. All 3 are good games, but they changed each iteration way too much instead of sticking to the original formula, which made R:FoM likely the best competitive arcade shooter of all time. R2 had plenty of it's own issues, that I could go on for hours in detail, but I won't here. I'll list a few, such as removing the weapon wheel, the extreme downgrade made to 'Meltdown' from a highly competitive, skilled, active-capturing mode on R:FoM to a 'stand by this beacon' inactive capturing mode in R2; having your hand held through Skirmish mode I believe it was, giant half-dome shields, mobile impenetrable shields, invisibility (and the rest of the berserks), etc. (many many etc.s) R2 did add a few good things though, like the 8 player online co-op. The Henry Stillman radio broadcasts were also a great, immersive idea and memorable. Core Control was also a pretty solid CTF variant, but the maps were no longer mirrored, giving some advantage to one side or the other; enemies also spawned in front of the objective, punishing an advancing team for killing off their opponents. R3 just continued the casualization, CODification, and dumbing down of the franchise. "The weapon wheel returned"; yea, no it didn't, because weapon pickups didn't return, so you rarely had much to cycle through. Weapon upgrades gave already more experienced players additional advantages (making the game anti-competitive, since it was no longer a level playing field).. and here's a copy/paste from an older post I made to point out some of R3's flaws and to highlight the CODification I mentioned: R3: *Added Killstreak Rewards (highly overpowered and easy to get) *Added Perks *Added Prestiging (another example of copying instead of leading and sticking to their original formula) *Added post-death auto-seeking free bonus kills (Leapers aka CoD dogs) and it wasn't even a Killstreak Reward *Added weapon upgrades for an uneven playing field and noobier weapons like highlighted heads for the sniper as an example *Kept Invisibility in Competitive multiplayer *Kept Impenetrable Mobile Shields, among the biggest complaints with R2 and it's Wraith *Removed the custom games browser *Removed R2 style co-op *Removed vents and replaced them with ladders *Removed clan support beyond a clan tag *Only 8v8 max *Didn't reinstate weapon spawns (made weapon wheel less useful than on R:FoM) *Didn't reinstate node games (Meltdown, Assault, a legitimate Breach mode) *Didn't reinstate the ability to shake off flames and tags *Didn't reinstate freedom of movement from R:FoM (run/jump in any direction on demand aka moving at the speed of thought) *Less character customization options *Made the Auger into a Killstreak Reward, yet allowed players to spawn with a heat-seeking rocket launcher
Resistance is trash period the best one was the psp one, they are wasting time on a ratchet and clank wow why not a new ip ...
The entire Resistance franchise was under rated, but an awesome series. Even if it's true Insomniac isn't working on Resistance 4, that doesn't mean it's not being worked on. Sony owns the IP and can have another studio working on it. Sony Bend did a great job with Resistance Retribution on PSP a few years back. And we already know Sony Bend is working on something for the PS4.
I luv the first one, toke all my time playing the MP, sniping everyone hehe and the co-op is so good
i agree! Resistance 3 had an awesome campaign! The stupid online pass kept me from trying the multiplayer but the campaign was amazing. Resistance 2 had a great multiplayer though.
a man's favorite FPS of all time! That being said Ratchet and Clank is a man's most anticipated PS4 launch title
Sony just give us Resistance 4, such an underrated IP
Would love for them to do what bungie did with Halo 2. Show both sides of the conflict, in different chapters.
Resistance should be fought on other worlds, could make for great games. I enjoyed all 3 tbh.
You mean like Destiny???
Could be like that. Needs other enemies,weapons, environments. Really open it up. I would actually like to see a new dev's take on it as well.
A trailer would be nice. :)
The movie is finished and got positive reactions and once they finished with all the Dlc for Sunset Overdrive we might hear more.
Give me the Spyro remastered collection, and Resistance 4.
Resistance 3 was one of my favorite FPS of last generation. The weapon designs were awesome, and so was the enemy design. It was really satisfying blowing aliens apart and those boss battles were exciting. I hope this franchise gets picked back up someday...
They should work on a new IP in my opinion.
They have Ratchet and Sunset Overdrive. Both are amazing franchises. Why would they work on a new IP?
well, I'm talking about for PS4. Besides, the more new IPs the better right?
IPs cost money and are a risk. Can't just create them at whim. It's a financial risk.
Captainexplosion is right, they have overdrive (a new ip) and Ratchet (sequel/reboot). They dont need another new ip yet. If anything they should port sunset overdrive to more devices
new ratchet will be pixar quality. Btw the ps3 ratchet games were simply amazing, even now not even on steam do you get quality like that!
The ratchet games, especially tools of destruction crack in time were sublime! i played them for the first time this year and they blew me away.
I really hope there will be a new Resistance game on the horizon for the PS4. All 3 installments where good, the 1st will always be the best but the others where definitely no slouches.
Please Sony give us a Resitance on PS4. So underrated of a franchise. Can't wait for Ratchet & Clank.
No more Resistance?! LAME. Resistance 2 was one of the main reasons I caved and bought a ps3 in 2008. Depressing news.
If you only played the second one I get your point but 1 and 3 were great. 2 just tried to do way too much and lost focus.
I would kill for Spyro to be back with insomniac
Bring them all back!
Damn! you activision!!!!! I want Spyro again!!!
eh, i'd rather have resistance. ratchet and crank suck. Sly cooper was a good kids game but sucker punch makes that one.
Mag, socom and uncharted 2, kz2 and 3 with new control layout on all of them. Infamous remaster. I would pay for that stuff.
Interesting. The first Jak & Daxter on PS2 blew me away. Going to be doing pretty good to beat Ori & The Blind Forest though! Damn I love that game.
Ori & the blind forest is a beautiful game, like awesome Trine . Interesting, if Naughty dog sold the rights of Jak and Daxter to Insomniac we'll have all 3 to play jak,spyro,ratchet !! c'mon insomniac do your magic .
Sony own J&D, not ND.
