125w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared some video footage today from Comic-Con 2011 spotlighting the Global Resistance online strategy game in Resistance 3 for PS3.
To quote: Greetings from San Diego and the International Comic-Con.
Last night, IGN Editor Colin Moriarty moderated a panel on Resistance 3 featuring Creative Director Marcus Smith, Art Director Grant Hollis, Animation Director Kevin Grow, as well as voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman (Charlie Tent).
The panel covered the Resistance universe, showed some of the new St. Louis footage we debuted on Gametrailers TV last night, and we discussed the St. Louis level, along with its mysterious story implications about Charlie Tent and his ragtag group of rebels.
And from there, we gave the audience a behind the scenes look of the motion- and performance- capture that we used to bring the characters to life in Resistance 3. Since you all couldn't be there with us, check out this highlight video of some of the best moments from the panel.
125w ago - LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has shared a video today spotlighting Starhawk for PlayStation 3 from this year's Comic-Con event.
To quote: Comic-Con is just the perfect venue to talk about Starhawk's universe, our characters and the story that drives the Solo Campaign.
Here's a video that we captured from the game and shows how we tell story in the Starhawk. It's done with a really great kind of animated "wanted" poster style, punctuated with Rift Energy.
They're Emmett's memories. His Rift visions. They're being produced by a studio here in Austin, Powerhouse Animation (they worked on the Penny Arcade Adventures animations). We've also got some really cool tech that seamlessly blends between the animations and the game (as you can see in the video).
This really makes the solo experience smooth and buttery. We didn't want any experiential speed bumps in the solo campaign. You can sit down, start the game and smoothly ﬂow from mission to mission with no loading screens!
So, yeah, we're having our Starhawk panel at Comic-Con on Sunday July 24th, 10am - 11am in room...

130w ago - Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder David Jaffe has posted up a new Twisted Metal Iron Maiden PS3 demo today and shared details on their Comic-Con 2011 plans.
To quote: I get into a little about the character stories as well as talk about gameplay balance and the pros and cons between the game's 15+ vehicles.
I also gab a bit about the reveal of Iron Maiden, the biggest and most complicated boss we've ever had in a Twisted Metal game!
E3 was a blast this year! It was really cool to connect with fans at the booth while they went tried out Twisted Metal's signature Nuke mode. It was also fun showing off our newest level: New York City during the holiday season.
The very first Twisted Metal game - released back in 1995! - takes place at Christmas time as well and I guess we wanted to pay a little homage. Also, I just love the idea of chaos and destruction centered around what is usually one of the happiest, warmest, most fun times of the year! Does that make me bad?!? So check out the video- hope you dig it!
And next up is Comic-Con in San Diego July 21-24 so hope to see ya'll there. Thank you again for the support, thanks so much for stopping by to play our game and say 'hey' at the show, and please stay tuned...
130w ago - In preparation for Comic-Con, SCEA Senior Producer Harvard Bonin has shared a video today for Starhawk PS3 Single-Player from E3 2011.
To quote: As expected, E3 2011 was crazy fun and a gamer's dream come true. Every year E3 gets bigger and badder but this year's show was special for us: we finally got to unveil our multiplayer Capture the Flag mode for Starhawk!
So far, the feedback has been great. Starhawk was nominated for a bunch of E3 awards, including Best Shooter, Best Multiplayer and Best PS3 Game from G4TV.
During E3, the PlayStation.Blog team streamed live demos for a host of PlayStation games, including this 20 minute-long Starhawk tour that really shows off one of our single-player missions. Check it out above!
Here are a some impressions from members of the press that played Starhawk at E3:
"What stuck out was the combat from the air, the power of the Hawks, and the surprisingly convenient ability to jump seats in a moving vehicle."
"We're definitely excited to see more of this game, including its extensive single-player campaign."
