Insomniac Gives Middle Finger to Resistance 3 Beta Players... In a Nice Way

If you've put hours into the Resistance 3 beta, you might feel like you should get something in return - other than the satisfaction of knowing that you've helped make a game bug free. Luckily, Insomniac Games concurs, and will be giving beta players something special as a thank you. (PS3, Resistance 3)

Yo dawg, I herd u leik freebies. So we put a freebie in yo freebie so you can get a freebie in a freebie.

A present for playing the beta? You shouldn't have!

"We are announcing a new playlist called *Classic Hardcore*. It’s got all the exciting R3 action minus Berserks and abilities. This is for those players who want to go toe-to-toe without the extras. Classic Hardcore will be available Day 1!"
SWeeeeeeeeeT! I freaking hate the COD-ized MP in the beta, so this will be great.

People are still doing the Xzibit thing?

To SilentNegotiator COD-ized is exactly what killed socom 4 I hate how every developer is following each other .
LOOK_AT_THIS_I  +   1244d ago
Seth Luisi is responsible for the slaughter of Socom.

I cant wait to get the EMP grenades, the damn turrets/health pods are a pain in the neck. Hopefully they will let us use filters to make rooms and get rid of some of the cheap ass weapons too. 9/6/2011 :)

"People are still doing the Xzibit thing?"
Only the coooool people.

It warranted it. They gave us a freebie, the skin/taunt, for use in the beta - which is essentially a freebie in itself. Freebie within a freebie.

Should I have modernized it and done an inception joke?

Got the Email today. =]
Blaine  +   1244d ago
I got the email but I wasn't in the beta. :(

I was out of the country during the download window for Sony's welcome back freebies, so I didn't get my free month of PS Plus. :,(

Oh well, guess I'll just look like any other non-beta player!
Dart89  +   1244d ago
Everyone can get on it today. It says on their twitter.
ATLRoAcH  +   1244d ago
The beta will be available to everyone on the store later today. Just download and play and you'll get the freebies.
Blaine  +   1244d ago
I just noticed--downloading now!
tiffac008  +   1244d ago
LOL! Insomniac, now I feel bad I wasn't a beta tester. XD
pixelsword  +   1244d ago
Trust me; it wasn't all candy canes and lollypops; there were some raging debates in the beta forums about how the weapons should be balanced, what should they add, people constantly not reading the FAQ before posting a page and a half or irrelevancy...

You're coming in on the best part.

updated it to 2.04, could never get into a game, hard freeze everytime....
Silly gameAr  +   1244d ago
It's been pretty smooth for me after 2.04. Had a few freezes, but nothing like before the patch. I just hated that they had reset our stats. Lost my level 20 and all of my unlocks along with it. It's cool though, because now I'm up to 23 and going for the atomizer.
ftwrthtx  +   1244d ago
I've been playing for a couple hours today without any issues. Connecting was quick and painless.
xtremegamerage  +   1244d ago
Thanks Insomniac, got the e-mail today as well/

Looking forward to playing the full game:)
blackburn10  +   1244d ago
Its nice to see people like ND and Insomniac giving us the options to turn off the perks and kick butt without them. I'll bet though the very same people who complain that its the perks that are beating them probably will still get their @$$es handed to them.

The way I see it is if you can't find a way to overcome the advantages people have over you then you were never a good gamer in the first place. I mean what do you do when you fight bosses and enemies in games that are 6 times bigger then you or have missiles that home in on you or or have back up helping them or have shields or can only be destroyed by a certain techniques? Do you cry then too or adapt to the situation?
chaldo  +   1244d ago
Hmm.. Been playing almost everyday and still didn't get an email. :(
doctorstrange  +   1244d ago
They say everyone, so I guess they mean everyone.
TheMrMadzen  +   1244d ago
You do not get a mail before you play between the 30th August and the 4th September
doctorstrange  +   1244d ago
Haven't played it in a couple of days
And I got a code
chaldo  +   1244d ago
Alright well I just tried to play today and when i go on multiplayer, it says logging in.. After that, a error pops up saying cannot update game date.

Please note that I did have this beta a few weeks before it was available to ps plus users.
ChronoJoe  +   1244d ago
Is that taunt uncensored in the full game? hope so...
Mucudadada  +   1244d ago
Oh, yes. It's uncensored.
BigWoopMagazine  +   1244d ago
hahaha nice. better than most taunts, cause that's generally what I'm doing to the screen when I die anyway.
MidnytRain  +   1244d ago
Lol, you just brought back images of AVGN.
xX-StolenSoul-Xx  +   1244d ago
I LOVE FREEBIES! just like the uncharted 3 beta with is rewards... this does the same TY!
StarWolf  +   1244d ago
classic hardcore mode might make me purchase
admiralthrawn87  +   1244d ago
hopefully enough people play the gametype. i hate perk systems. ruined mp shooters for me.
FEARprototype  +   1244d ago
even if they make the beta free, am not going to play...because am buying the game of course! lol to late to play the beta now dont really wanna spoil the fun of the full for myself.
doctorstrange  +   1244d ago
Play one quick round to get the free stuff
FEARprototype  +   1244d ago
i can't......the cake will be spoiled then...
typikal82  +   1244d ago
So i guess this makes the Best Buy preorder pointless....
tigertron  +   1244d ago
I think the best news is: 'But wait there’s more! While many people love and praise the new direction of Resistance 3’s MP, we also wanted to give a nod to longtime fans. We are announcing a new playlist called *Classic Hardcore*. It’s got all the exciting R3 action minus Berserks and abilities. This is for those players who want to go toe-to-toe without the extras. Classic Hardcore will be available Day 1!'

RFOM mode then I take it? only with iron sight aiming. Thats cool because the worst aspects of the R3 MP are those perks.
SoapShoes  +   1244d ago
I disagree about the perks being bad but I'll play both as I like both of them equally.
EeJLP-  +   1243d ago
If you knew Resistance, you'd know there's still very many differences between R3's "Classic Hardcore" and R:FoM.

It's a step toward Skilled/Competitive gameplay, but it still needs another step:
The disabling of weapon upgrades to not give advantages of stronger weapons to more experienced players, and to remove or limit issues with the upgraded secondary weapons.

Then it will be a fairly Skilled and Competitive mode, but will still be different from R:FoM in many ways.
Jac5al  +   1244d ago
There is going to be a barebones playlist, without perks and berserk.
JonnyBigBoss  +   1244d ago
Who says nothing is free in life!?
BigWoopMagazine  +   1244d ago
People who pay for sex.
Aussiegamer  +   1244d ago
Everyone pays for sex in the long run trust me bud.
dredgewalker  +   1244d ago

Lol, well said. When you take a girl on a date, you pay. When your wife finds out you're cheating, you pay. When you didn't put on rubber and you found out you got std.......you pay. :)
insertcoin  +   1244d ago
Heh, good one, Insomniac!
decimalator  +   1244d ago
F you too Insomniac! Wait, what?
BigWoopMagazine  +   1244d ago
Agh! I can't believe I didn't even play this beta! NOOOOOO!!! What was I thinking?!
RedHotChiliPepaSpray  +   1244d ago
now people who were bitching about it being too much like cod can shutup
capcock  +   1244d ago
I don't like the multiplayer gameplay I have seen :(
looks like they took CoD and resistance in a blender.

Oh they actually added a classic hardcore mode :D

Nice there Insomniac :)

Misleading title is misleading. Good news for Resistance 3 players though.
dkgshiz  +   1244d ago
I didn't play the beta much. I'm getting the game on Tuesday though along with Dead Island if it turns out to be a good game. I haven't seen much on Dead Island so who knows.
jocomat9  +   1244d ago
IM sorry but is the damage at least lower, Cause personally i thought it took too long to take down an enemy.
DFogz  +   1244d ago
I thought so too, granted I haven't played that much so I'm still sorta low leveled. But come on...half a clip into some guys back just for him to turn around and blow me away with a shotty. Kinda turned me off a little bit
Bumpmapping  +   1244d ago
It's lag hopefully the retail version is way better.
EeJLP-  +   1243d ago
It's not lag.. it's the lack of ability to maintain your aim on a target and go for headshots.

The shotty part from DFogz is another story.

I'm sorry to say but this MP is garbage I would love the story for a fact but the MP is straight trash too me at least it has some good things in MP but not good enough. R1 is still the best one.
Ares90  +   1243d ago
Never played a Resistance game before, today I downloaded the beta and I actually liked it. I wouldn't say it's a complete mess actually it's very decent, I was kinda impressed 'cause when watching videos the gameplay didn't look to me attractive or appealing.
tigertron  +   1243d ago
Play RFOM, its my favourite FPS.
C_Dub  +   1243d ago
R3 is the perfect game to hold me over until UC3. Can't wait for the 6th.

Thinking of picking up Dead Island too.
thespaz  +   1243d ago
R3 beta didn't do it for me. I just couldn't get over the fact that it looked and played like a Call of Duty clone with monsters (that's just how I felt). I just didn't like it, sorry.

Disclaimer: If you loved the beta, all power to you. If you don't think it's a Call of Duty clone, then it's not. Don't turn my opinion into hard facts. I'm just letting you know how I felt about the game.
sielder  +   1243d ago
I haven't played the beta but I suppose the two free gifts are better than nothing, personally i'm not really interested in a taunt or a skin so i dont feel like i'm missing out.
RAmar101  +   1243d ago
im sorry but just tried beta team death match 2day it looks awesome, just play crysis 2 on consoles and see the difference resistance 3 is much better looking runs amazing also
