"0:00 I played the original Resistance a little bit when the PS3 first came out, but I could never really get into it. I guess you could say I played some token Resistance. Eh? Eh?!
0:01 The preview screen doesn't even show the name of the game ... just a huge, stubbly face, with glowing orange eyes, mouth agape in a scream, with some war march music in the background. Creepy.
0:02 It wouldn't be a PS3 game if there weren't an update available immediately. Version 1.2 requires a paltry 24 MB download. I have to say, these updates seem to be getting smaller and smaller.
0:04 All installed and we're off.
0:05 The game actually somehow detects that I'm not using HD cables, and therefore will run in non-HD mode. Super-mega-bonus points for you, Insomniac.
0:06 "Resistance 2 needs to perform an initial setup process. This will take 90 to 120 seconds. Please do not turn off your PlayStation 3 system during this time." You just lost all those brownie points, guys...
0:08 Sure enough, the setup is complete 120 seconds later. That was actually pretty painless. You guys get half your brownie points back.
0:09 The logo appears on the title screen with a creepy, cel-shaded stubbly man in the background. A red sky with planes flying overhead and the same war march music.
0:10 The game seems to use every single button on the PS3 controller. No way I'm gonna remember all this stuff in the heat of battle..."
