124w 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.
