Ted Price sits down and goes through various online options of Resistance, and shows some online gameplay as well.
This definately answers alot of questions people had about what the multiplayer was going to be like. Insomniac has done a fantastic job of giving players alot of different options and play styles for online play. This has become a definate must have for me.
Good job finding this. These vids really give a lot of details about what the online mode in resistance will be like.
I'm sure the Mart will be here soon, he seems to be on the ps3 forum alot. It seems that they have looked at a lot of FPS and taken what has worked for them. The game looks awsome and not as cramped as I thought it would be with 40 players. Nice work on finding this.
Hmm, it did look good, but of course there wasn't any lag. There was around 3-6 games on the entire server. I don't think that was an accurate example of how lag would affect the game. You also have to consider that people have varying connection speeds, and the average connection speed varies greatly in different countries. Compare Sweden's average, or America's average to England's. So people that were playing that game at that time would have had very fast connections, since they wouldn't want to run into lag issues in a demonstration.
Sooo... this game is basically in the vein of Star Wars: Battlefront and such? Lots of games like that manage huge numbers of players too... Interesting to see, but I thought this title was more of a "straight" shooter. Interesting.
lovely post, thanks
im glad they've incorporated the sprinting ability. after playing BF2, it just doesn't feel the same without the ability to sprint.
I'm curious to know how the buddy list and messaging in Resistance fits in with the buddy list and messaging already in the PS3 OS. From the looks of it I'm guessing they're completely independent of eachother... which is pretty sucky. That said, it looks like they've got it right for multiplayer.
just kidding...!!! It looks great, and I can't wait to go to "thewalMart" and buy it..!!! =]
Insomniac's online testers have been playing with artificially high latency for months to make sure that even people with crap connections won't experience noticeable lag. =] After seeing the X-ray vision I definitely want to play as the Chimera.
Got a link to back it up? I'm not saying you're wrong but I've not heard anything about it, so I have a little doubt. Not too sure about that X-ray vision though. It seems to be way better than the humans' ability. And I don't know if you noticed but it recharged (or decharged, whichever you want to call it) a little too quickly. I'd have preferred it to be like that that persons on Brute Force. If you've not played it, it's quite similar but it takes a bit longer to recharge)
I think this is the link DJ was thinking of: http://ps3.ign.com/articles... In the article one of the guys says: "To make sure we run well over the internet with that many players, we have all spent a lot of time running with artificially high latency and packet loss so that we make sure our systems are designed to handle them without looking bad."
I run 3mb dsl, which works fine for online gaming(I play a lot of Socom). So its good that they are testing things like that. Insomiac should win developer of the year, they've produced a great AAA launch game, kept us informed and up to date. Kudos to them.
Has multiple accounts..... !
Reminds me of the kind of fast-paced fun I had playing SW: Republic Commando on Xbox1. I don't know, my opinion of the PlayStation 3 has been changing lately...I'm probably going to buy one, maybe next spring when HS and Lair come out. Which I know sounds strange coming from me, since I've been pretty much anti-sony from jump, and VEHEMENTLY so. I'm just finding my contempt for the console subsiding over the past few weeks; I still hate Kenny k and Kaz H, though, and always will, those assholes. I'm definitely still pro-360, the sheer amount of awesome 360 games coming out over the next 12 months can't be ignored. But I figure, why deprive myself of great games? And what, the 360 and PS3 can't peacefully co-exist on the same A/V media rack? Of course they can. At the end of the day, f*ck brand loyalty. I'm in it for ME. So, I'm going to buy one, I'll just wait and let you guys buy up all defective launch units first :P
Aside from your first paragraph (I never played Republic Commando) I'm going to have to admit I'm feeling the same way. 360 still has more games I'm looking forward to, but PS3's got some pretty good looking stuff coming out as well. My only problem will be time. I barely have enough time to play the games I've already got, let alone all the good ones coming out in the next few months, and that's just for the 360. Maybe MS will be nice and just chill out on the awesome games for a while so I can catch up with the ones on PS3, but I doubt it. I guess I'll just wait until the buggy PS3 supply runs out. That should give me at least a couple more months to play games and save money.
"I'll just wait and let you guys buy up all defective launch units first :P" I couldn't help but laugh my ass off when I read that. Yeah, I probably won't end up getting mine till the springtime as well. I'm starting to like Sony's advertising style (took them long enough, hehe) and it's making people notice. The Play B3yond posters are awesome.
good for you cyclonus. i've felt the exact same way (though my preference was for Playstation over XBox) every since 2003, when i bought my original XBox. true, Kaz and Ken are some big retards (Ken moreso than Kaz), but i've never had any true respect for CEOs' anyway: all they want is your money, and to squash the competition (except for Nintendo, who genuinely seems to be in it for the fun). brand loyalty is indeed for suckers.
They came up with a way to show skill and performance in games good job. I wish microsoft thought of ACHIEVEMENTS!! And the elevators are revolutionary wish they included those in Halo 2. Well, at least they didn`t copy the vehicles...wait what vehicles. All those gigs and no vehicles. Rip off!
Yeah and what's up with guns? I've been tired of shooting things since I got bored with Doom. When are they going to release an FPS where you don't have to shoot at stuff? And why do so many people think multiplayer is so special? They've had it since 1962. BORING. And x-ray vision? Seeing through stuff? That is so old. It's not 1895, it's 2006. Show us Q-rays and things that don't suck. And what's with all the trees? There are plenty of trees outside, we don't need to see them in games. Gosh, I guess I just hate everything.
GUNS? WTF is up with that? Where are the slingshots? Man, sony freakin copeees evrythnag. Stup1d!! Who the hel wants to play as a person? I want to be able to kill people as a faucet! Come on! Give me some pipe-lovin' Hot Water in my veins! Stupid soldiers are soooo old.
LAUGH. Who'd disagree with that post? Some fb who thought it was serious? Morons.
Nothing seems too different except more people... which is a bonus (or could be a detraction at the same time) I hope they get enough funding to keep all the servers running and updated through the duration of the ps3's lifespan
I just like "These people were informed not to shoot at me so I don't die to show the demo, otherwise I'd be dead a whole bunch of times by now" comment, lol obviously this makes sense, it just sounded really corny
Awesome find an awesome new. I'm not a FPS gamer but this is the first great FPS for a sony console
Looks like RFoM it looking like a pretty good shooter. Nothing to be to picky about it looks solid.
Totally agree... It seems Insom. really wants this game to be great. To me it seems they're almost going over-the-top.
