Free Resistance 2 PS3 Themes, R:FOM Map Packs, and More!

50°
301w ago - Insomniac Games Community Manager Bryan Intihar shared the following today on the PlayStation Blog:

We know what some of you are thinking: "Well, Resistance 2 has shipped–I betcha Insomniac is sitting back, cracking a cold one, and taking it easy 'til after the holidays." In the words of ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso: NOT so fast, my friend!

We've been on the message boards reading your Resistance 2 feedback, letting it soak in, and working diligently on patches (Yes, more updates are on the way, and no, I don't have a definitive date for the next patch. But trust me–it's in the works). We also have some really cool new community features coming to MyResistance.net over the next few weeks. Expect another blog post soon with more details.





New Resistance 2 Trailer: Free PS3 themes and map packs won't be the only reason to visit the PlayStation Store on 12/11. We've also cut a new Resistance 2 trailer, which features some really epic moments from the game. I'd say it's my favorite trailer we've put together for this title.

Now, since this is the holiday season, we figured it was time to provide you with some Resistance-related gifts that won't do any damage...
 

MGO BETA gets new Map and Mode via Update

50°
334w ago - The European BETA of Metal Gerar Online has has been updated. The update includes a new mid-sized map called Midtown Maelstrom.

Also included is a new gameplay mode called "sneaking Mission" in which one player can play as Snake.

To quote: As for the new gameplay mode, we expect the Sneaking Mission to be incredibly popular for the sole reason that Snake is a playable character.

One player takes on his role, complete with OctoCamo, Solid Eye and other handy items (how does he carry so much stuff while sneaking around?). The aim is to move silently around the map trying to collect dog tags by defeating other players.

If more than ten people are playing then another player takes the role of Metal Gear Mk II in order to help out Snake. Meanwhile two teams battle it out as usual.

Official details of the new CoD4 Map Pack!

50°
338w ago - Below are the latest official details on the CoD4 map pack:

Since details on the maps have been pretty scattered throughout the internet, I thought I'd give you guys a comprehensive breakdown of each map in the upcoming Variety Map Pack for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare along with some suggestions on gametypes, classes, and a few more screenshots to look over; all in one location.

For those of you who don't know, these maps will be hitting in April and will be 800 MS Points (same pricing for PSN). Along with the map pack will be a few minor changes to the game, including a tweak to Clan Tags to re-allow special characters.

Individual DLC Map Descriptions:

Broadcast
Its size and alternating routes make "Broadcast" great for large team games. A large, multi-story television station with plenty of window vantage points creates the perfect setting for floor-to-floor combat.

The station is surrounded by extensive outdoor areas consisting of a long parking lot, surrounding buildings with sniping hiding spots and side-rooftop access to the top and bottom floors of the television station.

Creek
A large wide open village in the woods, "Creek" consists of heavy foliage, great for sniper cover: a deep ravine offers an excellent vantage point...
