Hit the front page - it brings the sexy.  4 player co-op from Insomniac?  I'm in.

It sounds interesting, especially the weapons, and I hope they make a proper single-player campaign for it.  I think it would have been wise to keep the original look, though.  From the screenshots, it looks just like dozens of other games, and for this to succeed, they need something that stands out from the crowd.

They mentioned two modes: a full story mode, replete with sidestories for each character, and some unnamed mystery mode that they'll reveal at a later date. So there's that.

And while the cartoon style will be missed, the game does look great, and the environments still have that Insomniac feel. They showed off a few pictures of the different locations, like snow-covered mountains, middle eastern temples, and lush, vibrant jungles. I wouldn't worry too much, I think they got this one. smile

At least from a marketing perspective, this seems to be going over very poorly with Insomniac fans. We'll have to see more movies to see how much the tone has changed.

I don't understand why, Resistance was gritty and dark as hell, and fans seemed to love that game. Also, there's a trailer up on the front page for it now.

It was because people liked that the original trailer was unique, and they seemed to have turned it into a generic shooter. They don't understand the need for the change.
