In a double dose of Insomniac news, Insomniac has announced that they currently have no interest in developing for the NGP and that their focus lies strictly with the PS3 and 360. This really isn’t shocking news as they do not currently develop on handhelds. Even Resistance Retribution was developed by Sony Bend. The NGP Resistance game will be developed by Nihilistic Software. A downer, but not a shocker.
In other news, Resistance 3 will support Move and 3D in the wake of positive feedback that Killzone 3 has received. Again, not a shocker, but good news nonetheless for motion gaming and 3D fans.

Listed for an April 2011 release, Mortal Kombat looks like its gunning for Fighting Game of the Year honors (Take that Marvel vs Capcom 3 fans ). Within the past few weeks, characters have been revealed, as well as gameplay features. I’m sure you all have heard that Kratos will be part of the game, and how the whole crew will bring it back to its MK roots by incorporating the Klassik elements we’ve all loved. Things such as old costumes, arenas, signature moves… everything to induce nostalgia.
Here are some updates and videos:

Rage is the next game from id, the creators of Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Rage won many awards at E3 2010, and looks to be a cross between Fallout and Borderlands. It is definitely a game I will be checking out a lot closer. The novel, also titled Rage, will be released in North America on August 30, 2011.
A plot for the novel can be read after the jump.
