Resistance 3 inspiration images

I thought some people might find this interesting.

When I was first assigned the boat level in Resistance 3, we had a very vague idea of what it was going to be.  I'd been thinking about a mostly standard ride-down-the-natural-river experience until one of the concept artists did some drawings of a boat floating through a flooded city.  Immediately I thought of my hometown of Louisville, KY, and the great flood that devestated the area in the late 30s.  My good friend, Scott, had a scrapbook of newspaper clippings about the flood, and generously lent it to me to bring back to California and share with my team as a source of inspiration.  The environment artists were delighted!  Here are a few of the more influential newspaper clippings that inspired us.
