"After a long wait, Resistance Burning Skies is finally out for the Playstation Vita. Considering it's the first FPS game to grace the Vita, just about everyone is excited to try it out, but this is also causing problems." - JPS
Sucks since I am one trophy from the platinum (yes... already)
Damn 1 trophy away? Scale 1-10 on difficulty? HOLD UP: I thought Greg from IGN said it takes 8 to 10 hours to finish?
2. Basically there are no difficulty trophies, so you can play it on easy. Kills save after you die, so you can farm some part for certain enemies. Story is short (2 ish hours), so there is honestly nothing stopping you or anyone from doing it.
@admiralvic I just started today, you need 2 playtroughs for platinum. How can you do it so fast? The game is not short.
@ Hisiru: I think you're doing something wrong as it can be done in 1 cycle. You only need 1 cube for each weapon (they dont need to be maxed) and another for one weapon to get all of those trophies. You get about 900 kills via campaign, so you can just replay an enemy heavy part for more kills. There is a part on the last level where there is a red thing (not sure what to call them) and a large guy who passes by it. Simply blow it up (instantly kills him) and allow yourself to die. Rinse and repeat this till you get the 18 kills. This really should cover everything.
Thanks to your explanation I already know what I did wrong.
i must say that after playing this game it further bolster my opinion about the mass gaming media being a joke and unreliable when it comes to reviews. this game is very good in my opinion. the online servers are sh" at the moment but the few games i played online were very good and fun without incident. the campaign is very good from what ive played but i cant say the whole thing is as polished as uncharted golden abyss. i hope they sort out the servers by tomorrow when i can get my own copy of the game but im flipping happy about this game
IGN thinks Johnny Crash Does Texas is a better game 8/10 JC Does Texas: http://wireless.ign.com/art... 5.5/10 Resistance: Burning Skies: http://ca.ign.com/articles/... :^0
That much money for a 2 hour game? Damn...
By that logic CoDs are 5 hour games. And by logic I mean pretending that multiplayer doesn't exist.
you must of been on crack when you were playing if you've already finished.
The online matches I did get to play were pretty fun. It's not the best, but it's forgivable since it's the first ever full FPS on a handheld, if you like old school simple matches, you'll love Burning Skies multiplayer.
I'm still playing the campaign, so it's not a big deal, hopefully it gets up though, soon.
Most games are like that during the first days /week. To those who have had a chance to play online, was it good?
It's great online. No connectivity issues here either. No idea why...
I have problems getting into matches. However it worked once and it was really good taking into account that it is an FPS game on a handheld. The servers should get better in the next 48 - 72 hours.
I wished a better development team worked on the Resistance series. It was unique from a lot of the other fps' out there. Unfortunately, Insomniac destroyed it with catering to casuals like those who play Call of Duty and ONLY play Call of Duty. Basically selling out being jealous of Activision and their greedy ways and adopting their tactics, thus the failure we call Resistance 3. The Resistance series was no 10 million seller, but it pushed decent sales. I wish it was more. In the end Insomniac said in a nice way "f*** guys! We're going multiplatform." Even though they weren't owned by Sony.
I know a good amount of ppl who prefer res 3 over the rest and its not because they are Cod noobs. Imo the sp for 3 was aweskme and thoroughly enjoyable
The single player I can at least agree on. You have to look at the sales though of Resistance. R1 being the highest selling among the 3. Resistance 1 - Great campaign Resistance 2 - Great multiplayer Resistance 3 - Great campaign.
R1 had the best SP and MP. R2 had groundbreaking MP and coop, but it was a slight letdown due to its CoDiness. R3 had a good SP but bad story, and the MP was mediocre.
I played R1 at launch and for me the R3 story just has more teeth. It is certainly more polished in the mechanics. It's a personal preference and I respect those whose taste differs from mine but I just found everything in R3, from the story, to the presentation to the graphical choices to be more mature, darker, and more immersive.
Hold on now. You might be right about the multiplayer, but the single player DID NOT cater to the cod crowd. It had the best single player of most shooters this gen, a great story, creative weapons, health packs, the whole campaign was awesome. If anything, they made a so-so multiplayer mode because they wanted to focus on sp, and if thats the case then I'm very happy it turned out the way it did.
Some negative reviewers paid off and now im sure of it I dont believe in making excuses for this game because it is the first fps on handhelds but because of that if anything it should recieve a higher score because ut pulled it off and does it well. Imo i rate it as follows.... Visuals-7.5-guns look good, aliens look good and the levels are not tge best nor worst ive seen. Audio-6.5-guns just dont sound realistic or how they shoukd Controls-solid 9-controls work great except for a few minor touch screen annoyances Gameplay/fun factor-8.5-feels like resistane game to me and it sure is fun Mp-havent plyed as if yet.
Totally agree with your scores. Play it with headphones on and you'll notice a difference in the sounds (the guns sound a little better). The thing I'm most impressed about with it is how solid the frame rate is
This is kind of off topic, but since there's quite a few Vita owners here I thought I'd ask. Does anyone know why I rearrange my app bubbles and then when i reboot the system they are all out of order? It's reaally annoying and hasn't happend until now.
I dont know, but I have a similiar problem where my clock always ends up one hr behind the timezone I provide in settings.
Have you turned daylight savings time on? I had the same problem and that fixed it for me
im loving it!
So dissapointed that MP isnt working, but campaign is awesome!
Wow, I hate to say this but after reading all these articles, I think its safe to say that this game really bombed.
The reviews have been very mixed. There have been alot of 7-8s too. Reviews are opinions, ppl should download the demo and judge the gm for themselves
The game is not 2 hours long... And the servers for the game do suck. Still haven't been able to play. Suddenly, that 2 out of 10 for Destructoid is looking about right.
lets just hope they release a update to fix all of this shit.
Games like this show the sorry state that the gaming industry is in at the moment. Publishers are just not willing to spend the extra money and time on making a game properly functional before the release. As much as I like this series and developer, I hope games like this that take early buyers for a ride fail hard, it is not good enough.
The servers arent the only thing broken. I preordered thru gamestop and i got the mp bonus (which i cant use bc i cant get online) ... but i didnt get the 3 avatars or lockscreen either. Anyone else having this problem? If u got them or have more info on how to get them or as to whats going on, PM me or reply here. U can also message me on psn. Screen name is same as here. Thx.
I've tried to play online since yesterday eve.. Last night I caught a glimpse of 4 players in the same room for like 5 seconds then one by one they fell off and the room I was in timed out yet again. I'm pretty frustrated I haven't been able to play a single online round even this second its in the background timing out. :/ :( >:0
yeah im halfway thru the campaign, have not been able to get into ONE multiplayer match yet, but gonna try to get all the trophies i can while i wait for it to work. im doing pretty good so far. getting the "axed" trophy was pretty fun lol
yeah, i'm still trying.. but not ONE online game still.. couple trophies away from platinum though.. Story mode is fun.. but fun is sucked out of it when that's all you can play
