this game is gonna rock
They better be better than they have been. These are some ugly games! Barf. Sorry, I'm a graphics hound!
No Frank, you are a troll.
Fall of man was not too bad, R2 was partially good and bad. The one extra year of developement gives them room to make awesome looking visuals and the needed polish.
I actually think FOM had better graphics than R2! (for the most part anyway). R2 looked really bad in some parts, like the big leviathan fight where it looked good but everything else looked soo bad (like getting thrown through that window lol, just took away from the epic-ness of the fight really, when you compare it to GOW3 especially. The forest areas looked good and some of the lighting. The game itself just felt really empty, the cutscenes were FAR too few and too short at that, it made the game feel like a bunch of random levels thrown together instead of a continuing gripping story. Also, the music was quite bad too, emotionless, just all of these things add together to make the game feel...blah when playing it. As opposed to Uncharted 1/2 where there was JUST the right amount of cutscenes to tell the story, and they were just the right lengths too, with a great musical score etc that all adds to the actual gameplay. Edit: Just read they will be devoting the final 6 months to graphics!! That's bold, hope they actually make a good game first lol.
health packs please, so many games use self-regeneration
For a launch title, I consider RFOM to be a damn fine looking game. Even R2 had great visuals, just rather generic compared to the first outing
"Some survivors have settled in a school and are formed a group. They have turned into cannibals and can eat other quietly." Excuse me..what?
This game is gonna suck if its anything like the past 2 games it will be dead upon arrival a craptacular game.
Hmm... no. Resistance fall of man has more soul than any other FPS I've played this generation, with few able to top it. Resistance 2 simply fixed the issues reviewers had with the first.
Kids who don't have PS3's are pretty damn jealous of this game huh mrv321. R3 is going to be so much win.
You're entitled to your opinion of course - Such a pity that it's based on bitterness, jealousy and insecurity though.
Welcome back Snick. Can you get rid of your douchebag avatar now?
That's not true resistance 3's starting to look like rfom and that's no cod clone. "Some survivors have settled in a school and are formed a group. They have turned into cannibals and can eat other quietly." tears of joy
HORRBLE GRAMMER AMAZING GAME!
This new vehicle riding will be awesome. I can imagine a group of hungry humans and chimera pursuing me and my family when I am going BAM BAM BAM
2011 is looking to be the best year for the PS3
It will. the best community plataformer LBP2 So many great games 2 great fps, KZ3,R3. The best tps SOCOM 4 The best off road rasing game MS:A the bets and most fun open world super hearo inF2 Everything for every gamer, plus the MultP.. games and much more.
awesome lol mounted weapons, i think r2 had it?
The PS3 train !
"The team’s still not decided over whether the game offer you with health packs which will replenish your health or will go with the classic health bar." Thats interest they got rid of the regenerating health.
Regenerating health makes games too easy these days. Take too much damage? Oh, just hide behind a box for a few seconds...
no regenerating health or else it won't be a survival game.
But I would like the option like a Hardcore mode with health packs. It could be a good trophy play survivor difficulty on hardcore mode. It would be easier than 10,000 kills trophy.
What about this: 1) Health packs= immediate health boost. 2) Partial regen like FOM, OR Slow regen, you heal without having to worry about packs too much, making you the most worried of being ambushed or flanked. Either could work.
the health bar is broken into 1/4s. each 1/4 could regen if you werent under fire. it made the game feel much more like a survival noir kinda of shooter and it made you fighter harder to get through the really intense set pieces of the game. especially in those parts of the game where the serum was not in great quantity it. it gave the game soo much more soul over the standard regeneration system other games used. Skill full players played with caution within the game because the chimera were no push overs. :-) R:FOM was the game that truly ushered me into Next gen gaming and was my standard for along time of what next gen first person shooters should be, and to this day there hasn't been another game ive played this gen that is as atmospheric to me as R:FOM. and R3 is definately going back to what made the series so popular amongst it's fans. :-)
I would absolutely love for Insomniac to use the Health System that R1 had, but I wouldn't mind just health packs either. I liked the Health system in R1 because it made me play the game more carefully instead of Fully Regenerating like most Shooters. Unless Capelli has been bitten by the Chimera or is genetically altered somehow, I'm not sure how the Partial Regenerating system would fit in with the game, because in a GameInformer video interview Insomniac mentioned something about Capelli being immune to the Chimeran virus, and if that's the case, he wouldn't be able to Regerate parts of his Health like Hale could. Also, at the beginning of R1, I remember Hale couldn't regenerate parts of his health until AFTER he had got bitten, so I wouldn't be surprised if Insomniac decided to go with just Health Packs for the game since Capelli is immune.
Capelli is a sentinel just like Hale, and his resistance to the chimeran virus only came after he was infected with it. the infection doesn't come from bites but from Spire attacks that hit the city. you are right in saying that hale didn't have regen until after he was infected. All the sentinels were infected the same way Hale was, but their body took some of the strengths of the chimera and made them resist the devolution to a full blown chimera at a slower pace than the those without a resistance to the virus. I dont think Capelli is immune to the virus because his eyes still have the chimeran yellow in them which is why i believe he still requires those stasis serums that suppresses the spread of the virus. remember, They are trying to cure the world of the chimeran virus and Malikov has supposedly discovered the cure in Hale's Dead body!
but not full regeneration, its not great its more fun doing non full health regeneration.
Feels good to be a ps3 owner if you ask me. PS123 Forever!
The extra year of development time should do wonders for this game.
I hear ya, I expect it to be really damn epic! Too many games to look forward to!
Oh hello Resistance 3 news. Didn't see you there. Mind if I come in and have a look-see?
They are going to ruin this franchise completely. Why cant they keep it the same as resistance 1, instead of adding all this stupid crap to the game. It reminds me of MW2 compared to cod4. Mw2 online was horrible compared to cod4's because it added too many perks and kill streaks. Resistance 2 was a huge step in the wrong direction. It lost the unique, gritty feeling that RFoM had, because it copied halo and cod, not to mention the online mode they ruined with the crappy weapon/perk system. Keep it simple insomniac. You said you were going back to the RFoM roots, because the community hated R2. They better keep their promise, or this is another flop to the ps3 list
I know you won't be invited to my party.
The real Mooks i know would put a knife in your gut any given day. Just thought you should know that.
Said by the person with X mark on his forehead...
in Resistance 3. Its sounding more like a survival horror/FPS hybrid without zombies. This will be a big change for the franchise. You have the Earth being over run by chimera and civilation as we know it is gone. It's survival of the fittest at its very basic form. Kill and eat or be killed and get eaten. This is sounding more and more like The Road. The story will be a lot more personal this time around. I just wonder though what they will do after R3. Will humans ever rise again? because from the looks of it its a lost cause.
This is outrageous! Why are there no vehicles in Resistance 3? My favorite part of Resistance: Fall of Man was when I was riding in the tank shooting down Widow-Makers. Vehicles add variety to First-Person shooters. I loved the tank and mech sequence of Killzone 2. Why not incorporate that into Resistance 3? After a while, shooting inevitably gets stale and boring. Sadly, I have become disillusioned with this game. I want the feel of Resistance: Fall of Man, not some non-stop shooter survival-horror game. Yet I remain optimistic. I hope to see some gameplay soon. Until then, I cannot reach a true decision.
"Resistance 3 is not similar to Call of Duty games but it’s made in order to appeal to shooter lovers." Sounds really good. Screw COD! Go with what u guys do best ;)
This game is just screaming for a survival mode.
Regenerating health made sense in the other games as Sergeant Hale was infected with the alien DNA. Presuming that the playable charaters of R3 will be all human, I think the health pack route is the way to go. Really look forward to the return of vehicles too - The tank sections of RFOM were a hoot (albeit too short)
I might but it on a backlog and get to it eventually but I just don't care for the series. Resistance was good but then they ruined it with Resistance 2. I'm not interested in a 3rd game as it will likely be terrible like the 2nd one.
GT5 will still fell fresh LBP2 will bring fun variety co op greatness MSA will be that great Arcade offroad badass racing KILLZONE 3 will be epic and will please the ones that like KZ2 and please the ones that did not like KZ2. then we have SOCOM 4 the best tactical team shooter with the best and most fun MP. inFAMOUS 2 epic fun and the best looking open world and by the end of the year we will have THE LAST GUARDIAN GOTY RESISTANCE 3 you don't e ven need to buy Multiplat games if you own a PS3 that how amazing next year is going to be. and many more exclusive games maybe we will get Twited Metal, Starhawk, The Agent and more. Plus the great Multiplataform games. If you are a gamer and don't have a PS3 wtf are you waiting it will be epic, you will have the greats video gameing year ever.
Uncharted 3, or at least that's what I really want next year haha
I'm surprised this didn't get reported since it's weeks old but clearly people didn't see it back then so it's reaching more people. This game is looking sweet. Healthpacks are less generic nowadays so I say go with them (although slow regen is fine). Just hope they position packs better throughout the levels. That pissed me off no end in Halo:Reach. I would think that a combination of really slow regeneration and occasional health packs might feel fresh. Just my opinion
