SystemLink: "That Gamer's Guide to Life.com Resistance 3 interview has hit the internet with aplomb, and we've pulled out two intriguing quotes; one regarding the length of the game, and the other probing into the DLC plans."
Great, just great!
The moment they announced Hale was not coming back even though the last game STRONGLY hinted he would told me this game would suck. No Hale=No Resistance. God how the mighty have fallen.
How did it hint he would? We* all just grasped at straws to figure out how he could be alive. The whole game was saying from the beginning he had a ticking time bomb death wish, it said constantly that he was turning into a chimera, he went and completely turned into a chimera and then he got a gaping hole shot through his head. If anything, R2 was heavily* hinting that he would not be coming back.
Yes becuae getting shot through your skull 3 2 seconds before the game ends is a MASSIVE hint that he was coming back. -__- anyway this looks to be the best campaign in the franchise so far so I'm excites.
Are you all really that dense? He was possesed by DAEDELUS. Aka, head chimara who is linked to all other chimars. If he dies, so do all other chimara. The only sensible route they could have gone with was having hale live to become a bad guy and the final boss to finish off at the end of R3. Insomniac writer apparently cant even remember thier own plot devices. Having a great character killed by a bitch like capelli is like having Rambo being killed by a bunny rabbit. I cant even see the same game anymore. Resistance 1 was so good. R2 was ok, needed work getting back to R1 glory days, R3 is going to be a shitfest in the single player story. So many contradictions spuring up already and a troll spoiled the ending (its lame). Ive always believed single player comes first and MP is an afterthought. I wont be lead through this bad story. Hale deserves better than what they did to him. Insomniac has really let down gamers for the second time. I will never purchase a game from them again.
So basically the only "sensible" approach was to sh*t on your characters from 2 games ago by turning him into a bad guy , making everything he did so far meaningless ? Your way aint even surprising nor originl and again just crap on the char , so no thanks
This is the problem these days, people just can't leave great characters dead. In order to make a great game you have to kill great characters, you can't keep bringing them back just needs to accept that shit. The same with Radec from Killzone 2 everyone's complaining for him too. The only way to do it is if they make a game or some kind of DLC about some of his PASSED events.
Didn't Hale at one point tell Cappelli if it came down to it, then to pull the trigger? What Capelli did took a lot of emotional input and the ending did that justice. It ended a chapter. Fact is IG wanted to go in a new direction, and with the lack of development Hale was given in RFOM they were better off following someone else. Read the books and the lore of R3. I wasn't too interested in Capelli taking over either until I realized how deep they made things. and you say you want it to go back to RFOM and they did just that, and based on early reviews its even better. Its like RFOM with an actual developing character, instead of a voice over. I love Resistance and any true fan of the series is going to play the game and not just walk by it because Hale isn't in it. I actually give IG props for having the balls to kill their main character, you never see that happen.
"In order to make a great game you have to kill great characters" Dude that is the biggest load ive ever read.
Shorter..? Even with the extra year of developement time? That's a bit dissappointing.. Either way I can't wait to play this game (:
Well do you want it longer or do you want the story to be brilliant. As long as the story is great I do not mind it being shorter. I do not want the thing to drag out which doesn't fit with the story.
I think he'd rather the brilliant story that was slightly longer. As would I. :)
once I heard "online pass" this only makes me feel better about not purchasing.
If you were thinking on purchasing it to begin with,why do you care if the game has a online pass?
with the pass so it really wouldn't affect him unless he purchased it Used!
@sevir04 It has nothing to do with me not getting fucked. I'm looking out for the guy after me that doesn't have the money to afford brand new. Quit think of just yourself. We already had the "me" generation (babyboomers) and look how fucked up the world is. We don't need a repeat.
@Horny Melon Lol I see your options of what games to buy in the future will be very limited considering most future games are going to ship with online passes. I don't agree with online passes but if your buying brand new it shouldn't be a problem to you and at least they will keep away the hackers
He just one of those people who has nothing to say but feels he should say something. If he really wanted R3, the online pass wouldn't bother him him in the least. It would be up to whoever wants the game after me to decide if he wants to pay the five dollars. The online pass won't stop most people from buying any of the war shooters coming out this fall but most people use this excuse to pretend that its the reason they aren't going to buy R3. Don't buy it, but just stop the lame excuses. BTW how much is a shade shorter? The campaign in R1 was pretty meaty. Do they mean like 30 mins shorter or like a whole hour and a half?
you wasnt going to buy it anyway
But some people obviously feel you have to be full of shit to not buy the game because of the online pass. I am not buying Resistance 3 solely because of the pass. You guys can believe whatever you want, but that is honestly the only reason why I am not buying it.
You ok? I ask because your pants are obviously on fire.
im definitely going to get this, but Dead Island releases on the same day. them saying the game is shorter convinces me that i should wait to buy Resistance 3.
Dead Island....Dead Rising the tropical vacation edition.
Except... It's not. I'd say "nice try" but I'd be lying. ;)
if you haven't follow the last 2 resistance i see your poing but if you've played the last 2 i don't know how anybody wouldn't like to see what happens on the next game. The story is so intriguing.
He said its about the same so hopefully the difference won't even be noticeable.
Aye guys relax. I recently did a new playthrough of R1 and R2 and both games clock in at around 13 hours which is way more than most campaigns are nowadays. Also I hate when article headings mislead you. They never gave any details on DLC except to expect some and that there will be post release DLC. Thats not detailed. Detailed would be "Insomniac plan on releasing 3 map packs for R3 which will include 4 multiplayer skins and 2 multiplayer maps in each" Now that would be detailed not what was actually said
Yeah they were pretty long the last time I played them. R1 in particular sometimes felt like it would never end. Good of course but it was a long FPS.
ill take short and great better than long and boring and overrated (Crysis2)
That's so true. I don't know how that mediocre game got anything over a 6-7. The stealth felt useless (stealth is not* turn on invisible and walk for 5 seconds with enemies that can instantly see you from 100 yards away when invisiblity turns off) and the shooting felt boring. Made it about 3 hours in and found out it's like 15 hours long and returned it to gamefly (I always finish my games). Money saved by never buying that thing.
agreed that game was full of mediocrity. and the ending was just... fail. chimera are infinitely better than crysis's aliens. its just my opinion though.
One thing I'm loving is how he mentioned, "we wanted the full trophy suite to be available to campaign/co-op players, and to allow medals and statistics to form MP side of it for those that like it" For the trophy hunters out there, it'll be nice. Seeing as with some games, after a while you can never find a MP match to get the last few trophies you need for the plat.
Like Wolfenstien....90 percent of it is online trophies, and currently there are 2 games if that daily that are custom so you can't even get the trophies anyways. That and one thing I REALLY hate is "play with your friends" trophies. I'm trying to plat Bad Company 2, and all I need is knife 5 friends but I can't peel any of my friends away from other games to come do it.
lol @ horny melon. "just quit all the hate, I'm looking out for EVERYONE, quit thinking about yourself." lol cut the BS.
This game is so close! I seriously have been waiting for my Resistance and Gears fix for far too long. Fell in love with both franchises the instant I started playing.
ok, i think this is the last time i ever make decisions based on people's opinions here. I didnt download the R3 beta right away because some here said it was disappointing. im so glad i dlwnloaded it anyway because the beta rocks! awesome controls, great map layouts and extremely satisfying gameplay. Probably some of the best MP ive played this gen.
I bet the DLC is a shade longer than previous games too.
I just finished playing the Resistance 3 campaign and loved it, I thought it would be another case of a FPS with a 4 hour campaign because the multiplayer is the main aspect...but nope, campaign was about 7 hours on normal difficulty...longer than that of Killzone 3 and also better IMO. Now off to play on 'Superhuman' settings =)
Sure sure...when it's ps3 exclusive short is great. When it's CoD its a rip-off...double standards
Lol what are you talking about. For starters the first 2 games clock in at around 13 hours so if its a little shorter, then 10-12 hours is not a short campaign. Secondly knowbody here mentioned COD on this article except you so what does that tell us. And thirdly the COD hate is mostly down to Activision pumping out a title year after year with very little changes made each time. The hate your seeing is because COD is becoming boring to the people who have been playing it for 5 years straight. How long do you think the COD fade will last. Nothing lasts for every. I remember a time when everyone had a yoyo and it was the cool thing to have. 10 years later and yoyos are lame as fuck. Its not a great comparison but it does show how fades can die very easily
Im just gonna rent this game. No hale, stupid online pass, different to last two games, and shorter? Wtf are Insomniac thinking?
guys wait for the reviews.. a longer game does not always mean its a better game.. maybe IG wanted the pacing to be faster? there must be a good reason..
I'm curious as to why some of you think Hale is a good character. He barely said anything and looked incredibly generic. It was to the point where it didn't make a damn bit of difference who you end up playing as. I have the game by the way and am disappointed for the most part, just saying.
