Developer commentary - The Splicer.
Ted Price looks like he hasn't slept in weeks.
He was hard at work adding all that gore. <3 Ted
he looks tired. I hope Ted takes good vacation after this game.
Ted suffers from Insomnia...get it?...
He's an insomniac, what do you expect? He's too busy making all these awesome games, ain't no time for sleep! J/k (partly) Once he gets done with R2, he can rest easy while all the money rolls in ;)
Insomniac faithful, that I am.
reminds me of that ratchet and clank weapon still cool =D
its live update 1.30 now the bike update for ps3
This is the Best FPS of the year 2008.
ya he needs some major sleep.im sure there busy as heck working for the release.making sure its polished and all
Ted Price is dedicated to his work, ensuring that this game will kick ass
Ted Price looks exhausted.Reminds me of Kojima during his interviews.But the Splicer looks sick.Hopefully its a multiplayer weapon because I want to chop you guys up
wow.. wasn't gonna get this because i was waiting for Killzone 2 instead but this weapon just made me a buyer.
it is awesome...nice to see that it really cuts the bodies up too...you can see limbs and heads flying from the weaker enemies... I also love the little details...with the secondary fire you can see the little attached motor on the side of the blade that makes it continue to spin...I know its a little detail, but it would have been pretty lame for the blade to just keep spinning in the enemies chest with no realistic reason for it...
but thsi looks awesome anyway PS3 will set the stages on fire in OCTOBER and NOVEMBER with its killer lineup
I hope OFLC doesn't ban this game:@ The splicer looks sick. Can't wait for this game:D
The second part looked like a n64 game.
Thats because that segement was an early build.Its actually suppose to have environments like the Chicago streets around it.They simply demonstrated the weapons functions in the early builds so that explains why 50's style cars were there
in an unfinished PROTOTYPE showcase However Gears 2 multiplay already looks like an N64 game
...Wow...just wow. *shakes head at your idiocy*
Has ony one noticed the graphics are mor e polished??? Maybe its just me. /takes another look :P
The graphics will look much better by now, I'm saw this video a couple of months back (after e3 i think) It's gonna be one hell of a game!
Yes, actually that's the first thing that popped out at me in that video. Looks much better now imo.
and remember this an old build...and one scene is actually a tech arena...
That last bit wasn't part of the game - just a dev test programme! Anyway, back on planet Earth, that looked awesome! Never seen the Splicer at work before and I literally cackled like a madman when I saw the limbs flying around! Brilliant. Now I'm really excited by RFOM2!
Resistance 2 is looking amazing. Great physics on the body's getting shredded in the first half of the game. This is an absolute buy for me in every way.
splicer ftw! that weapon is just soo cool! man i want one of those for christmas!
hopefully they make DLC weapons
i doubt Gears of War 2 can come up with something better.
Since you're mentioning Gears, doesn't the "Splicer" reminds you about something? Something that's already in Gears? Hmm... starts with a C......s...aw. That's not a bad thing BTW, remember gears was GOTY 2006 so...
Splicer is basically taken from Ratchet, same/similar weapon has been in ratchet more than 6 years ago, so i guess Geow did still from Insomniac. p.S- next time check your facts d.....
Emmm name taken from Bioshock perhaps? First churches now name stealing...What a way to go for a mediocre game, oh well gears 2 all the way.
Open zone is to you right.
LOL. Some people make me laugh because of their utter fanboyism. But hey, I can play that game, I got a few minutes left at lunch... Halo stole the idea of ring worlds from, well, Ringworld. Lame! Halo stole the idea of space marines from Aliens, gasp! Double lame! Gears of War stole the character designs from UT3! Epic self pwn! Gears of War stole the cover system from Winback and Kill.Switch. Super original! Man, what mediocre games! Can't they come up with ANYTHING UNIQUE?! I guess not! MS is in trouble now! LOL ROFLCOPTER! Honestly, now, anyone can see what BS both the above post and this satirically focused post are. People need to freaking open their eyes and start ENJOYING games again, stop being such idiots to one another. The really hilarious, yet utterly sad part, is that some people actually believe and blindly stand by mega-corporations instead of their own opinions. Fanboys... ruining gaming since 1985!
You sound a little jealous... But gears 2 will probably also be a good game..
splicer- splices things, come on are you kidding me they totally stole it from the english vocabulary! And halo stole its name from the bible! Pistols- it totally stole that from real life!
It was a reworking of "gene splicing". Splicers were (future) people addicted to genetic alterations in much the way plastic surgery junkies are today. I think they "spliced" human and animal DNA.
This looks great, love the limbs all over the floor! Plus this still has like a while before launch
but twitching still. A lovely little detail that will make everyone mesh.
o ye lol, hope they do that right though otherwise it will just look like they are glitching lol
The blood effects are super cool! They really notched up the level of gore in this game :)
the splicer gun is already intimidating because it brings the smell of death & excrutiating pain. its the kind of fear that is equal to the ball in the phantasm movies. You just dont want this thing chasing you! Come to think of it. This gun would have shortened gears of war 2 to 3 hours instead of six. Oh well, epic is to late. Resident evil, your master will expose the clone that you are. Go resistance2 go!
Visual upgrade confirmed. There's just more depth and chunkiness to everything now. The trees (THANK YOU) look much better, the gore is cranked up... They've added a lot of polish to things. A lot.
It is possible for more than one person to think of the same idea without stealing the idea from someone else. People with great minds are often on to the same levels of thinking.
They always come up with new and interesting ideas for weapons, or give an interesting twist to weapons that existed already. Splicer : 2 thumbs up!
the footage looks really good. cant wait for this game!
notice how the splicer disarms the big quimera GREAT!!!!
it cuts off its limbs... LOL Your icon makes me want some bacon
M G That was AMAZING! It would be awesome if you could do that with the environment and stuff. Like cut a tree down to block a path or kill someone as it falls. Or cut through a thin wall or something. That was SICK! Bonus Points for R2!
The game looks good with all the gore...I must admit this one looks like fun and something a shooter fan like myself doesn't want to miss out on. I'm definitely playing this at a friends house.
Gears of war could cut the enemy in half so of course Resistance needs something that also does something whereby you cut someone up...Oh the originality in this gen is amazing...
Now you just sound desperate. Take this crap to the right. >>>
If anything, it's more like the Cerebral Bore from Turok. Splicer is better than Chainsaw gun because Cerebral Bore > anything
Gears of War and originality in the same sentence does not compute... Not only that, There are dozens of games that feature a gun that either shoots blades, or has blades attatched to them.
Sorry dude but this game has gears written all over it which is a good thing. Heck the same goes for gears having some influence from this as well I'm sure. I'm sure Cliff and Ted are even helping out each other.
That Splicer gun looks sweet. :D
I liked the way the blades seemed to swarm around that big dude.
Nice chopped-up Chimera. >:3
i guest resistance is trying to copy some of the violence and gore from gears of war lol ummmmm !! hahaha lol
Oh lord, what? HEY GUYS, GEARS OF WAR INVENTED BLOOD AND GORE!! The gore in Gears is lame though, the blood is like "black"
Actually Resistance 2 is taking things further by having a lot more getting sliced off at once compared to scripted chainsaw cutting in the same spot regardless.... :/ And I still have yet to see a Gears 2 video where there are more than 10 enemies that you can run up to. Yeah, they seem to have sections where there are like 30 enemies way down below where you can barely interact with them, but that's about it.
So rather then saying both games are good in there own way and both have nice lookinggore you guys have to take some pot shots. I would take some myself at RFOM2 but I'm not because it isn't fair to bash a brilliant game just because I'm a fanboy. edit below; well I actualyy like the gore in gears and see the gore in RFOM2 looking very similar. I would love for it to look real but the type of real i want is probably ten or 15 years away.
The Gore in Gears is lame though. It tries to present its self as a big manly, mature game, but the blood is random black splodges. It's not a shot at the game, it's a shot at Gears having gore that would be considered "less than realistic".
That Splicer looks hella cool. I can't wait to cut apart some Chimera in November when I play Resistance 2. To bad they can't put Marcus Fenix (Gears of War) in the game so I can slice him full of razors.
You know the one you unlocked on the second run through that spliced into multiple shots? I just remembered, it was splitter..
