Resistance 3 Multiplayer: Passive and Active Abilities Detailed

James Stevenson of Insomniac Games writes: Hopefully you caught the news yesterday that Resistance 3 has gone gold! We also debuted our new story-centric campaign trailer. You may also know that the Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta early access has begun for owners of specially marked copies of SOCOM 4. We’re still very much in beta mode, with regards to fixes (especially for matchmaking to address the freezes and disconnects), so please keep reporting what you see. We hope to have a patch soon that will address many of these issues, but in the meantime, thanks for bearing with us.

Seems fun, overall an excellent addition to the PS3 library. I have to say, I am looking forward to the single player and finding out what Hale was ranting about at the end of R2. Good stuff.

I wish they didn't go with class loadouts and instead had R1-styled weapon pick ups.

I feel that weapon pick ups would make more sense with the weapon wheel.

I'm super disappointed that UC3 went this route as well. I'm so sick of loadouts and 3 hits to kill someone.

Fingers crossed for Starhawk breaking this mold!

-Alpha2449d ago

Yeah, hated that UC did it too, especially with the dragon sniper. At least they retained power pick ups.

I think having the Deadeye, Auger, and Shotgun as pick ups would be a lot better for R3.

I remember hearing that you can still pick up as many weapons as you want throughout multiplayer, and fill up the wheel as long as you survive long enough, even though there is loadouts. I haven't played it yet though, so is this true or can you only hold 2 weapons?

nightmarex1212449d ago

Yeah you can, but i think its buggy as hell the a perk that let you have total of 3 weapons as a load out then you can pick up weapons too. But if the person dies and you try to pick up the weapon it doesnt work but if it just there on the map you can pick it up.

it would be nice to actually be able to try out, I have not been able to join a single game since downloading. It looks pretty and the perks seem neat. Maybe a patch to counteract the last patch will let me actually play it.

-Alpha2449d ago

You can still try to play private matches with your buddies

im waiting for some adds to play with, none of my friends have it. I fired up a custom map just to walk around a little bit, cant wait until a few of them jump on to try it.

The main thing that bugs me about the beta is the sensitivity. The vertical and horizontal are different. So when I adjust I can only get one of them to be the right sensitivity. I can get horizontal perfect for me, but the vertical is too slow. Then if you get vertical right, horizontal is way too fast.

Thing that I really like is customizable controls. The one thing the uncharted beta was missing. I hated Uncharted controls. But at least R3 lets you map any action to any button you want.

BiggCMan2449d ago

Damn really? I think the controls in Uncharted have been perfect since the beginning.

NoobJobz2449d ago (Edited 2449d ago )

I can't use shoulder buttons to fire and aim. Bugs the crap out of me. I have to be able to switch those to triggers or it's not working for me. I like my RB/ R1 to be grenade. I believe in uncharted grenade is L2/LT? Or whatever it was, I remember it being awkward for me. Everytime I trie to throw a grenade, I would reload.
