This week, we’d like to welcome Bryan Intihar of Insomniac Games into The Recap. See what the boys in Burbank have been up to at the bottom of the post.
And I’ve been out of the office (@ Comic-Con International 2008), and so haven’t had a chance to relay this information, but as many of you have asked, and some have figured out, the song from our E3 Press Conference opening montage is “Burn in My Mind” by Twenty-Four Flowers. Here’s their MySpace page if you wanna take a listen.

Hello, PlayStation world! E3 may have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean things have slowed down for all of us Insomniacs. In fact, this week has been pretty crazy with Resistance 2 development going into overdrive, not to mention the recent announcement of Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty (which you can download from the PlayStation Network in the coming months).
In other studio-related news this week:
- Hopefully by now you’ve seen some footage from Resistance 2’s Chicago level, which features a massive amount of creepy creatures known as the Grims. Mike McManus, one of our gameplay programmers, recently posted a blog about working on this portion of the E3 demo and some of the differences between developing for R2 and Ratchet & Clank Future: ToD. Check it out here: http://www.insomniacgames.com/news/.
- Episode 30 of the Full Moon Show podcast is now live. We welcome back to the show Brian Allgeier, design director of the Ratchet & Clank franchise, to discuss the Q4B announcement and other E3-related topics. Also, the folks from Sony Bend join us to chat about an all-new installment in the Resistance universe, Resistance: Retribution for the PlayStation Portable (which arrives in early 2009). You can download the podcast at http://www.insomniacgames.com/podcast/podcast.php.
- The Resistance 2 beta has been quite the topic of discussion this week. As my community mate James Stevenson mentioned yesterday on various gaming websites, there will be many ways of getting into the beta. Subscribing to Qore is simply the only one that’s been officially announced. So stay tuned for more details.
- Our founder and CEO did a number of interviews at this year’s E3, but few proved to be as entertaining as the one he conducted with the HipHopGamer. Head to http://www.thebitbag.com/ to see Ted Price discuss Resistance 2’s Leviathan battle, the changes going into competitive multiplayer, and how the president of a major game studio should rock the WWE championship belt.
