After winning the award for Best Shooter at E3, 2008 from both Gametrailers and 1up , Resistance 2 has managed to win another award for multiplayer experience
But.. but.. but.. Gears of war 5 vs 5 is soo epic... but but... PWNED.
http://forums.gametrailers.... wow the game is on a roll here
Now this post could have some serious flamewars going down if we're all not careful. I still prefer Killzone 2 to Resistance 2, but it's announcements like this that get me reconsidering my choice to either get one or the other based on Beta performance. Maybe I'll just get both, limited student budget or not.
BE CAREFUL! This is still Gametrailers!Stay Alert!Remember that Viacom has a deal with Microsoft so be cautious. I knew Resistance 2 would be the best multiplayer anyway.You know what the girls say "bigger is better".But we gotta wait and see.
lol pwnd. There is definitely something special about Resistance 2 that makes it stand out from the rest. My faith in GameTrailers is slightly restored... only slightly.
so GT now are really professionals?? hahaha, you are a joke....well we'll see when this two great games came out. Multiplayer of Resistance 1 was bigger than Gears of War but nobody plays RFOM right now and Gears of Wars is always in the top most played games on Live.
Look at this jealous left wing, watch him squirm.
Funny you should say that. I've never once had trouble joining a game in Resistance. :P
Meresin the problem in resistance 1 was not being able to connect to a game. It was getting people to stay because of the retarded gameplay.
funny, the most played games on live are Halo 3 and CoD4, gears don't even figure there.
You shouldn't judge a game in its beta coding because the game is technically unfinished. The beta testers are there to find the bugs faster and for better optimizing.
that really only knocked the competition without even mentioning resistance. BTW as a Xbox-360 owner I have long said that Resistance 2 is my type of multiplayer game, but what does your comment serve other than to flame? your 52 agrees show that all you had to say was 'bad Gears, bad xbox-360' and by default even if you did not mention anything about resistance you get agrees. Why am i having a rant? well because I hear a lot of *anboys calling out all others as *anboys when really it is them.
Gears 2 and Resistance 2 are completely different games. Your comparing a TPS with a focus on cover and small squads to an FPS with a focus on giant firefights. I'm amazed you have so many bubbles.
What game-play would this be now? You don't sound like you've ever played RFOM.
R2 is going to be bigger, better and more badass indeed ! What ? This sentence is for Gears 2 ? My bad...
I agree. I was excited for Gears of War because I thought there would 16 player online or at least 12, and 4 player co-op. But then it turns out theres only 10 player online, and 2 player co-op? Not really Bigger, Badder, Better. However im beginning to get hyped for Resistance 2. The first one was okay, but I just didnt like it as much because it was extremely hard to beat even on the easier difficulties. But now with 8 player co-op looks like ill be having fun playing Superhuman with 7 of my buds. Oh and the 60 player co-op is a nice touch.
that Cliffy B. has a trademark somewhere for the term "bigger, better, and more badass," which he can throw around and use at his leisure. Cliffy: "my underwear are certainly 'bigger, better, and more badass' than usual today!" Marc Rein: "please stop. you're making us 30-somethings look even more sad and pathetic." Cliffy: "yes, my master..."
lmfao @ fig boy.
this article. Moderators are going to be busy.
like really? but whatever, from what I've seen Resistance2 is going to deliver and going to be AWESOME! the scale is unmatched (at least on consoles!) from 40 they went to 60 MP and the included a separate story for 8 player co-op, that's what you can't find anywhere else! kudos to Insomniac and this will be day 1 purchase for me!
So much for the "unbeatable multiplayer with chainsaws" in gears,lol Resistance 2 + killzone 2 = ultimate FPS experience on consoles
They gave R2 Best FPS shooter award. But even now, when it is clear without any doubt that PS3 games are vastly superior than 360 games, gametraitors still manages to secretly defend the 360. Watch as they will give Gears..uh I mean Grays of war 1.5 the award for best THIRD person shooter. A shooter is a shooter. I cant believe how they will go to such lengths to give an award to Greys of war when it is without any doubt clear that R2 won the fight between the two.
Sony fanboy site........
60 players and an 8 player co-op with it's own separate campaign is more game than the Orange Box.
Here comes PP
Eh,I don't think anyone here gives a rat's ass about him,besides,leave him alone Gears needs it's c*ck sucked anyway ;)
Will be EPIC....online and offline. Insomniac doesn't ever disappoint.
Marketting tags the developer names being used to describe R2's multiplayer? OH THE INSULTS!!!
I have had this avatar since I joined back in April I believe....A lot of people have gotten this picture since then. I'm not saying I'm the orginal, but I'm not copying... Ontopic...R2 is going to be amazing.
And which game will sell the most Gears of War 2 by far the best graphics than Resistance 2 and Killzone 1.5
Damn this guys so predictable
1) gears doesn't look better than Resistance 2 or Killzone 2 2)you suck
If you're going to go with Killzone 1.5, then you also have to go with Gears 1.2. Ooooo man they tweaked the guns and added the ability to use a body shield. Man, it's a completely new game!
Best Graphics: Killzone 2 (PS3 exclusive) Best Multiplayer: Resistance 2 (PS3 exclusive) Best at being almost the best but not quite there: Gears of War 2.
so? the xbox360 has a bigger user base of course gears will sell more, it doesnt take a genius to figure that out, but that doesnt mean its a better game
i'm suprised killzone isn't in there.
Cos Killzone 2 MP wasn't playing in E3 boost demo until very last hours left. So it could be GT never test it out in E3. Anyway I'm glad R2 won, I love the first one MP gameplay.
GT gave Killzone 2 the best graphics award.
VIVA LA RESISTANCE great weapons great story great hardware great developers
Well deserved. This is a title that has it's own charm and a story that works really well. Couple that with a studio that strives on greatness and can pump out quality titles, you're sure to have a hit on your hand. Looking forward to R2 this year.
BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH AHA! Can't compete with 60 multiplayer mode! :3
That's a good thing. Multi player is very important right now to the current breed of gamer.
Yeah I saw this a little while ago and remember asking myself "is this the same Gametrailers?" They praised Little Big Planet a fair bit too. Couldn't see most of the awards though, my internet went funny and I couldnt watch some of them.
Resistance 2 is upping the ante on all fronts no doubt.
they won FPS, graphics,innovation and now multiplayer. And yet microsoft had the best conference HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!! IDK but i think sony had the best conference right now and the better exclusives.
They've got the better exclusives. Microsoft only won the conference thing because of the FF13 announcement imo, it's the only thing they had going for them that wasn't already detailed to some extent. I'm starting to see the appeal in Fat Princess btw, at first glance I didn't like it. But now I can see what it's all about, it's like a new version of CTF except you can fatten her up to make her hard to move lol! That has more players online at once than Gears 2... Resistance 2 does look good, I got addicted to the MP of the first for ages before COD4 took over. R2 is bigger and better than that. But I still think Killzone 2 will keep me hooked the longest. Resistance 2 should get 10/10 but I bet it doesn't from some suspect sites... you know the ones I'm talking about.
But it seems like PS3 is actually turning it up on the multi player front lately, possibly for now and the future. A bit surprising since usually Multi player belonges to Microsoft.
Name a better FPS shooter this year? anyone? Fry.....? Fry.....? Beuller.....?
Resistance is definitely well deserved for this award. Still Little Big Planet has some amazing stuff you can do with online creating levels is a big deal and posting them online for everybody to see is really cool.
NOOOO....that site is so darn bias =/
you forgot that 2 player co op is much better than 8 player co op remember what 360 heads love to say, "it's too much chaos, my system...i mean my brain can't handle it."
i totally forgot about that, i think mentioning the 360 hurt my brain :)
this game looks lame. gametrailers no longer holds any credibility with me. the first resistance is boring, the second looks like more of the same. let the disagrees fly. gears of war 2 is easily going to outsell this game 3 to 1 and people will play it for YEARS after they've forgotten about this Halo wannabe.
http://www.insidegamer.nl/p... You are not normal Resistance 2 will outsell Gears2 in WW sales
if this game went multi-platform at E3 you would love it and say the PS3 is done right? (FF13) SOCOM is going to be a better 3rdPS than Gear2. SOCOM will probably sell more than Gear2 also, if you disagree with me on that one than you don't know what SOCOM means to Playstations. My psp version of SOCOM has 32 players online and it's FREE Why are you paying $50 a year for less than what my handheld plays?
monkey..not that i care about the thoughts or assumptions of a fanboy. but i have both systems. and i don't care at all about final fantasy. i might check it out, but i won't spend 60 dollars on it. and ill probably rent this game. it looks OKAY but that's it. the graphics aren't bad...but it's just a shell. just like call of duty. presentation is nice, but gameplay is shallow. and none of this changes the fact that gears will outsell and probably outrate this game. real, solid game play + a huge following means an actual contender for game of the year. resistance does't stand a chance. resistance is the kind of game that if it came out last generation i'd be like "WOW, that looks amazing." but these days, i demand more.
more like 30 on 30 more like 8 player co op or less like 5 on 5 less like 2 player co op demand more from Gears2 (unreal engine color by numbers gamedesign) gameplay + huge following = SOCOM
no one plays halo anymore. Resistance is more like Call of Duty 4 with 60 players and weird weapons with primary and secondary functions. How many awards did Call of Duty 4 win? 3 to 1 only in america maybe. but you forget that sony has Europe now lol
i have to agree with Spydiggity that Gears will sell more BUT that doesn`t make it a better game--thats a stupid logic e.g- by your logic a mini is better than a ferrari becasue it sells more by your logic the wii is the best console this gen by your logic a flat is better than mansion by your logic chickens are the supeier race on this planet i dont think so
Shallow gameplay? Call of Duty/Halo ripoff? Have you played or even seen either R game? Epic boss battles, dozens of different enemies, some classic weapons, but mostly completely unique and useful new weaponry? The original halo had what, 7 different enemies who just had different colors? grunts/elites/jackals/hunters/ flood/flood zombies/flood bombers, am I missing anything? Its levels were open/empty and half of them repeated themselves. R1 was Insomniac's first attempt at a FPS, and myself and a lot of people thought it was absolutely incredible. Some aspects were cliche, and the early chapters were something everyone had seen before, but once you get into it, the level design became much better, and the game just starts to expand. Now that Insomniac had time to hone its skills and put on the polish, this game will likely be much much better.
Resistance 2 and gears 2 will both be great games.. ....But Resistance 2 is still better :/
This is an awkward feeling, I am agreeing with Gametrailers? Omg pinch me I must be dreaming. Seriously though, 30vs30 and a separate 8-player co-op campaign. What even comes close?
I didn't think they were gonna split games into categories. As long as there is a playststion3 game on top. I'm happy. there's no denying there is a huge difference between a ps3 game & a xbox360 game. More sales for ps3, means more good news from websites & that means those guys can keep thier fake job.
I really like what ive seen from resistance 2, but i must say that gears 2 doesnt look to shabby either =)
I agree BazookaJoe.Winner or loser for Gears 2 or Resistance 2,they will be placed in my portfolio
but in terms of scale, in can't math what R2 has to offer! I'm in no way declaring Gears2 is small in scale but Resistance2 is too big!
has awesome gameplay online the only reason i think i didn't snag the award was because there wasn't really anything different about it.Besides the 3 new weapons, 2 more additional players to a whopping 10, and some new features for co-op.Live really helps it though. You can send cross-game invites and join up with your buddies to take on some locust.I hope they mention the open beta for home at Leipzig. Being the best out of 10 is superhuman. Being the best out of 60, that's godly.
Sony's line up is domanating everything.. All i have to say its good to own a PS3..
but it also doesnt look like its going to be any different from the 1st game.. The story looks kinda cheesy and the game in terms of graphics and pretty much the whole atmosphere looks like gears 1.. Not to much to get excited about there.. Looks like your be playing the first game all over again.. Your in the same looking city with more foilage than your under ground again.. Now resistance 2.. WTF!!!! Everything about the game is different. Your in a different setting.. You travel to different city's in the US.. And than you have that huge a$$ monster you fight..
Wow, what's up with Gametrailers these days? It seems like they are finally giving PS3 games a chance as well as the rest of the gaming industry.
Killzone 2 beat out Gears of War
