On Thursday, IGN put up this four-and-a-half-minute-long video interview with Ted Price, the President and CEO of Insomniac Games. It doesn’t reveal a whole lot more than we already know about Resistance 2
, but the few of you out there who are interested in the game may find this interesting.
Price acknowledges a few failings of Resistance: Fall of Man
, such as the method in which the story was told — personally, I wasn’t a fan of the female narrator (Parker, if I remember correctly) recounting Hale’s tale — and he also mentions that Insomniac “got lots of complaints” because the first game had no online co-op play. It’ll be there in the sequel; however, as is usually the case with Insomniac, they’re doing it in their own way: apparently, the online co-op in Resistance 2
will have its own story that “parallels the story in the single-player campaign,” and it will feature three classes, à la Team Fortress 2
— a powerful soldier
, a ranged special ops
combatant, and a medic
, each with their own unique qualities.
At this point, I wouldn’t say I’m psyched for this game — hell, I still have to go back and beat the original — but my interest is piqued, to be sure. Check out the video and let me know what you think!
