Kotaku: Resistance 2 Brings MMO Sensibilities to the World of Shooter Coop

Kotaku writes: "Resistance 2 offers gamers a suite of experiences, a collection of modes that alone feel almost like stand-alone titles, but together compliment each other in a way that gives the shooter some major staying power.

Yesterday Insomniac president Ted Price told a gathering of game writers that their upcoming shooter will be the studio's "biggest and best game we've ever made."

And it's not just because the developer feels they hit it out of the ballpark with the game's single-player experience, or that they think their game offers the deepest multiplayer competitive mode around. It's also because the game's cooperative mode, which seems to tap into the dungeon-crawling, monster-bashing roots of massively multiplayer online games."

The story is too old to be commented.

And Kotaku apparently just praised an upcoming PS3 game. It's the end of days!

"Unlike in the other modes, players start the game by choosing one of three archetypes: medic, special ops or soldier. The soldier is your basic tank with the ability to throw up a shield and chew through enemies with a heavy chaingun. Medics have the ability to shoot a Ghostbusters-esque stream of light that either sucks life away from a bad guy or heals a good one. Special ops come armed with a long-distance weapon and instead of throwing grenades they lob ammo packs.

On first blush the mode looks an awful lot like a World of Warcraft instance, but without the loot. A group of eight huddle around one another, healing, reloading and shooting as they work as a team toward a single objective."

Sounds incredibly awesome and fun. Juuken, want to team up? :D

i wish socom came out in september, with socom mid october, LBP late october and Resistance 2 early november..........

it's because of this game and lines like this

"Coop can support upwards of 100 enemies in a single frame, so the name of the game is sticking close together and supporting one another."
