    They are sending them out.

    I've got Qore, so I should have one tonight or tomorrow. I'm not home right now... but when I get home on Saturday I'll be playing some R2!

    That sounds like fun! I'm really interested in Resistance 2. But I suppose I should play the first game first...

    it feels dated as hell now. The multiplayer is still fun but... damn Resistance 1 just feels so off, like a relic from the gaming past, and its' only 2 years old!

    It's actually quite a lot of fun. I played two matches tonight, a co-op and a TDM. The 8 player co-op level was cool. Some cool areas, with tons and tons of chimera. Nice team work (7/8 people had mics!) and it was very fun. Some of the creatures had WAY too much life, and one of the huge ones got stuck and we pretty much stood and shot for 5 minutes to kill it. It was fun overall, the part with the zombie-ish chimera was sweet. I just got corner raped by them and a nearby medic just chucked med packs to me and I got out safely! The 60 player online I played was sweet! People everywhere, some cool different weapon classes. The side arm pistol-detonator was cool. It was fun.

    I've logged many hours in to Resistance 2, while the closed beta had some bugs they were worked out for the most part by the time the open beta started. If you have lag I suggest you look at your ISP or local network, I've rarely experienced lag while playing.

    As far as liking it more or less than the first one, umm its a beta with far less content (and QC) than the full release will have, why are you comparing a beta to a production release again? Graphically its far superior to the first one, the online is better than the first one, and story wise you'll just have to wait for the full release in Nov., but trust me when I say its better than the first one.

    Ya, I have no lag issues. The beta froze on me once (after a huge killing spree... I wanted to see how many I had :(), but after all, it is a beta. The game is great and I can't wait till it comes out. I'll probably buy it later, I need time for LBP and Far Cry.

    lag...what lag? that thing is as smooth as butter. I like R2 multiplayer better than one plus now it has more colors(thank goodness)

    I was playing some coop today and DAMN those big monsters with the flame boomer things are hard to take down...gezzz but the cooperation by your team mates is much better than R1.

    This game just moved up on the food chain.

    Thanks Ed.



    Bless

    Ya, the life on those monsters is a joke. I pretty much stood in the same spot for 5 minutes and shot.... But ya, online is very fun. I just wish the splitscreen wasn't all Halo 3ish.

    Hmmm now am I willing to spend $20 extra to get the collectors edition with....
    -Cooler box art
    -Chimeran action figure
    -Hardcover art book
    -In-game Wraith weapon skin
    -Bonus blu-ray with tons of vids

    Actually sounds worth it. $80 is a ton of cash, but I'm just in high school, and my job is bringing more money than I need :D. I'll probably just buy it after I get my next paycheck.

    R2 has no lag with 8 player co-op or 60 man fight. We should get together for a co-op game.
