Resistance 3 Has Turned Me Around On A Series I Never Liked

There are plenty of people who enjoyed "Resistance: Fall of Man." There are admittedly fewer who enjoyed "Resistance 2." But it's safe to say I am in neither of those groups. They're not bad games, mind you, but they never felt like anything much more than passable shooters. Shooters attempting to match the quality of games like "Halo" and "Call of Duty," but never quite making it.

.
I feel the same way here...extremely hopeful for this 3rd installment to the point I refuse to play the demo's and fast forward/ skip along, including covering one eye... for all the vids being shown so as to save the experience for the big screen and sub woofer.

I think the atmosphere is the biggest draw for me, with fantastic art style to boot...just looks so good and can't help getting drawn in.

" I'll gladly admit that I've never looked to the PS3 as a platform leading the way for FPS games. With "Resistance 3," though, Xbox fans are going to have plenty to be jealous about when the game launches in September. "

I agree...lol...I only wish I could use the 360 controller but the PS3 turd will have to do. I will say that since I own both consoles, Gears Of War 3 will keep the 360 guys quite happy in September...maybe you heard of Gears of war...lol...either way...I win. :D

Why don't you just buy a 3rd party controller similar to the 360s instead of making a point to troll the most ergonomic and accurate controller ever made.

@jelly - I can back that opinion up with what I believe to be objective facts.

1. Analogue sticks are more accurate due to a smaller deadzone and smoother design
2. R1/L1 and R2/L2 are placed comfortably for the hand. The 360 controller places RB and LB too far forward forcing you to place your hand uncomfortably to reach it.
3. 360 triggers are horrible for shooters. The need to get a quick shot away is hampered by the distance to travel. Imagine a mouse that worked with a trigger like the 360s.

These are the main points and these, I don't think, are not subjective. Common sense dictates a quick button press is better than a slow one. Common sense indicates that the bumper buttons should be placed where the hand doesn't need to cramp. Common sense indicates a smaller deadzone with smoother movement of the sticks is better than a cumbersome larger deadzone.

"to troll the most ergonomic and accurate controller ever made"

That's your subjective opinion. Inside_out and myself, among others, think the 360 controller is more ergonomic, accurate and comfortable. Just because you don't agree doesn't mean he's trolling.

JellyJelly2303d ago (Edited 2303d ago )

@news4geeks - I can answer that with some subjective opinions (you don't seem to know the difference between subjective and objective).

1. Analogue sticks are more accurate due to a smaller deadzone and smoother design

The 360 controllers sticks are more accurate because of their concave shape which keeps your thumbs in place. The DualShock has convex thumbpads which makes your thumbs slip easier.

2. R1/L1 and R2/L2 are placed comfortably for the hand. The 360 controller places RB and LB too far forward forcing you to place your hand uncomfortably to reach it.

The 360 controller has more responsive and regonomically correct triggers. There's a reason why there are so many third party triggers on sale for the PS3 controller and none for the 360. http://www.amazon.com/Giote...

3. 360 triggers are horrible for shooters. The need to get a quick shot away is hampered by the distance to travel. Imagine a mouse that worked with a trigger like the 360s.

Really? What distance is that? You don't need to push the trigger all the way down for it to respond. Hard to call this an 'objective fact'. If anything, shooters is where the 360 controller is at it's best.

you talk out of your arse, and your opinion is just that. i thought for years that the dualshock was the best controller, but IMO, the 360 pad destroys it in comfort and accuracy.

i even bought a cross battle adaptor and wired 360 pad for my ps3.

the dualshock is better for sports games, but for everything elsethe 360 pad is the one to use IMO

watch the sony disagree...idiots

So an inanimate object can destroy another inanimate object? Who is the real idiot here?

It's so funny to watch you pretend to have a PS3. You have no idea what you are talking about :')

brew2303d ago

Dear Russ Fruchkstick , your articles would be better if you removed BS like this out of them imo.

"Shooters attempting to match the quality of games like "Halo" and "Call of Duty," but never quite making it."

"I'll gladly admit that I've never looked to the PS3 as a platform leading the way for FPS games. With "Resistance 3," though, Xbox fans are going to have plenty to be jealous about when the game launches in September"

dinkeldinkse2303d ago

I love the Resistance series, but I really hate the Fuck You Pass that Sony is forcing Insomniac to put in. I have a tough dilemna, either rent Resistance 3 and screw Insomniac, but also Sony out of a sale or give in and give Insomniac and Sony a sale, but reinforce the Fuck You Pass is ok to Sony.

Urrakia342303d ago

How is it a "f*ck you pass"?

Flummoxxed2303d ago

This really is a catch 22 for gamers. If everyone buys this game new with the pass, then Sony will consider it a success and every subsequent title will have this drm included. If R3, new doesn't sell as well because of the pass, Sony may have to reconsider other methods. Either way it is up to gamers and their wallets to let the industry know how they feel about this latest ploy.

TKCMuzzer2303d ago (Edited 2303d ago )

Eh, if you buy the game new you get the pass included. So why would this put people off buying the game? It's not costing people any more.
It's not a ploy. IT ONLY EFFECTS SECOND HAND GAMES.

jessupj2302d ago

@ TKCMuzzer

Because, my friend, I lot of us buy as well as rent. So if a lot of gamers buy this, as people have said, it's letting Sony know the online pass is a success and thus they will start putting this in every game.

So when we do come to rent, what's this? oh no! there's a big f*ck you pass plastered on the game.

It might not be costing anything to players initially, but it will in the future.

And unfortunately, people are going to buy this game, and sony is going to be stroking their beards.

kreate2302d ago (Edited 2302d ago )

@jessupj

yea but whats up with doing that to sony or insomniac?
they are not the first to do so.

and psn is free of charge.
online pass and similar methods are inevitable due to other companies already doing so.

i want xbox gamers to stop paying for gold membership so the already rich MS can let us play our games online for free. But it aint happening is it?
is microsoft giving me the fuck u membership? like how sony is giving me the fuck u pass?

at least sony let us play online for free.

DigitalRaptor2303d ago

Yeah, if you're buying the game, you'll have the pass to get online? What's the problem?

They don't make you buy the game and then force you to pay to get online - this isn't Xbox!

TKCMuzzer2303d ago

I think many are failing to grasp the fact the pass comes with the game if you buy it new. It's N4G remember.

TKCMuzzer2303d ago

As far as I am aware if I buy the game new I get a pass included. I can not see how this is a disadvantage to me one bit.
If you buy second hand games your already screwing the developers anyway. If your buying them new then the online pass issue is not an issue.

Only thing I like about Halo is the multiplayer (which is extremely fun). Cant really say I'm a COD fan, though the campaigns (while brief) are pretty intense. But Resistance, I gotta say is the best FPS I have ever played. Both SP and MP are amazing and engaging. If it had Killzone's graphics it would the perfect game. Not that it's ugly by any means.

Blitz0012303d ago

I don't like MP in R3 at all...buying the game because of the SP part although...
