Insomniac Games has a hit on its hands with Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4, but when finder interviewed the developer about what's next, it didn't receive good news for Resistance fans.
There's no way it won't come back at some point in the future, but sounds like it will be a different dev behind it. I'm ok with that, Resistance always felt paper-thin as an FPS under Insomniac.
Paper thin? Hell no. How many paper thin shooters hit 86% and 87% on metacritic? Lest we forget the paper cuts of Duke Nukem Forever, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Homefront: the revolution, 007 Legends, Haze, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Rogue Warrior
I loved Resistance 3 and I really hope we get a part 4 or just another one. They really found their pacing with Resistance 3. Its easily one of the best games.
Yeah, I loved Resistance as well, when I first got on there MP with 64 players, I logged out of the world for 12hrs str8. I was disappointed when they stopped making them. Maybe we'll see another when the PS5 comes out, or at least a remastered version...
I always figured the story ended with 3 and that a new story began with Burning Skies but then that fire burned out.
Resistance had great fun FPS gameplay but weak story and character concepts, this was the same problem for Kilzone. both were actually great FPS games but the characters and the world didn't pull you. it's like the reverse problem of the Order, that game had an interesting concept an a good script but the gameplay was below average. Sony need to give all these 3 games another chance and fix the bad aspect.
i wouldn't mind seeing what GG could do with this game. probably will never happen though.
If they don't make a sequel, they need to at least do some form of remaster. It particularly annoys me that Resistance 3 doesn't work with the PS4 gamepad on PS3. I don't have good enough internet for PS Now.
Man Resistance was fantastic. It was a breath of fresh air in the shooter genre at the time. Definitely not paper-thin.
Resistance 3 campaign was one of the best campaigns in an FPS i ever played. Solid all around.
I wouldnt mind Guerilla making Resistance 4
considering each newer version sold less than the previous one, no surprise these guys aren't eager to jump back into that universe. Their talents are clearly elsewhere right now.
Id really prefer a less arcady and more moody resistance game preferably made my guerilla, ready ar dawn or a new studio
I know people are going to disagree to death but honestly with the ending of the third game it came to a nice close story wise. I don't think they could really do a 4th game without spoiling the peaceful ending we were given. Killzone tried to come back after the nice ending of Killzone 3 and it just felt a tad forced, although that could be more about whatever writer Guerilla Games chose for the project, obviously the same can't be said for Insomniac but you never know. It even happened to Gears of War 4, yeah it was an okay game but to close the third game on a nice high note where they've finally won the war and get their peace it always comes off as grasping for straws when shit hits the fan again. I think they need a reboot further down the line or what I'd love to see a reboot-remake like what they did with Ratchet and Clank. Remake Resistance Fall of Man Add/Expand the game Make Nathan Hale a better developed character Then make Resistance Fall of Man II Virus plot is toned down Nathan Hale doesn't die The game keeps the same themes and elements of the first game BAM...new timeline Resistance Fall of Man III ends with Nathan being taken to their home world.
I like your thinking. They could do a simultaneous storyline somewhere else and run with a new set of characters
They could turn it into an open world third person metroidvania type game.
They could go the god of war route and reboot it from scratch. I think it could be an excellent game with the right direction
God of War PS4 is not a reboot though, it's a sequel.
Resistance fall of man was such an amazing experience. I think it was a launch ps3 game too wasnt it? Just freaking superb... never understood why they didnt just keep making fom games.
it was such a good game. The multiplayer was amazing as well. it was like 40 player matches and little latency for the most part. the weapons, and the grenades... literal room clearing grenades XD. Then R2's coop missions with progression systems for your classes... the games where literally ahead of their time.
Yep, FOM is still one of my favorite fps games ever. The single player and multiplayer were both incredible. It's actually the game that go me into fps multiplayer, such fond memories on the Manchester Cathedral map! I wish the series was more successful than it ended up, I would snap up a remake or sequel in a heartbeat.
yea it was an amazing launch experience. a pretty game tons of enemies and fun weapons too. the story was good up until the end. felt like they ran out of time and threw the ending together to meet deadlines. but the multiplayer 30vs30 the gameplay held up and was amazing and its what sony is missing right now in its library a an fps with long lasting multiplayer
i very much agree. in the case of Killzone 3 / Shadowfall, Killzone 3 did have that extended scene at the end that wasn't ever explored, correct? The could lead into a potential true sequel, or i could be wrong altogether =p. Shadowfall felt like a "technical" demo of what the ps4 was capable of for the time, and also was a practical exercise for their new Decima Engine to be used in future projects (e.g. HZD). I also believe GG has said Shadowfall was essentially their "fallback" in the event that HZD wasn't as successful (which clearly we know otherwise lol)**. But more OT: I really like your idea for a reboot. I always enjoyed the original trilogy, and tbh a reboot feels right for the time. I hope it eventually gets picked back up. Btw, this is how i feel about KZ as well. I feel KZ could use a reboot as opposed to a direct sequel of KZ3. **noClip interview @GG studios was where i got that info btw.
love your idea!
Shut up and take my money!
I'd love a new Resistance. Resistance is also an alternate history storyline. It would totally be exciting to see an alternate history of this games own alternate history. I really want Insomniac and Guerilla to collaborate on an online oriented game with the inclusion of a co-op/horde multiplayer mode as well.
If Spiderman takes off and it most likely will Insomniac will solely be the Spiderman Devs for a while.
I hope if extremely successful we see insomniac make other games in the dc universe than just spiderman. I read an article the other week that sony may spearhead others in the genre as well. Which would be amazing.
Please, Sony just do it. There is such demand. Put out a Resistance Trilogy on PS4 and watch the money rain in.
yup resistance trilogy on the PS4 will be lit! but knowing Sony, doing the trilogy while skipping the MP portion will be a thing like they did with the Uncharted collection. Resistance without MP is pretty meh...
wheres the demand? Each sequel sold less than the previous.
You clearly aren't looking hard enough because I've seen tons of people asking Sony to bring these series back.
maybe in the online community which is very small compared to the casual everyday players. Like i said sales showed differently. just a quick google search https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
@PhantomS42 a few people asking is not enough prove demand.
I'd be okay with a rebooted Resistance. I'd really like to see Overstrike as originally intended.
It's amazing just how much of a trainwreck Overstrike became. It's a perfect example of when a good developer comes under a completely profit driven publisher. The game's development would make for an interesting documentary but I doubt EA will ever open up about it.
I say release a remastered trilogy then work on a reboot for the series instead of continuing where the third one left off.
This would be a day 1 purchase for me although i think insomniac will be making dc games or new ip for sony for the forseeable future. Which honestly is a win win for me when at the end of the day, id rather new ip than more entries in 1 that kind of at this point needs a reboot.
Resistance is one my favourite Playstation franchises, they can totally bring it back!!
Resistance trilogy will be awesome to play in ps4.
I think Insomniac should approach different IP's (Sunset Overdrive,Spiderman)I'm not convinced that returning to Resistance would be a great idea.They've been there and done that and in the end didn't work out that well. Resistance 3 dates from 2011,I think they should give a different studio a chance.
The Resistance series didn't work out well? So why should they continue Sunset Overdrive? Did that game even do as well as the first or last Resistance game? Im sure you think Sunset Overdrive would do well and many Xbox fans would want it, but that didn't seem to be the case when the game came out. Who knows though, maybe it would do well, same as a new Resistance game. Maybe Insomiac doesn't need to make any more games for Sony, and should concentrate on Microsoft for awhile. Cant help but feel like that's what's being said in not so many words.
How is Spiderman being exclusive to Playstation me saying they should focus on Microsoft?. Sunset Overdrive and Spiderman have more in common and that being their latest projects. (I rather have them make more Ratchet and Clank games than going back to Resistance)
"How is Spiderman being exclusive to PlayStation me saying they should focus more on Microsoft?" Easy "I think Insomniac should approach different IP's (Sunset Overdrive, Spiderman)I'm not convinced that returning to Resistance would be a great idea." I never said anything about Spider-Man being exclusive to Sony. I only spoke about the Resistance series and it being better to make a fourth installment rather than a Sunset Overdrive. I even said that it could do well, as it seems fans have been mentioning it, just like Resistance, which fans have been asking for much longer. As far as Sunset goes they've been there and done that also, and in the end didn't work out that well. So much so that not even MicroSoft wants to take another chance with the "series". "(I rather them make more Ratchet and Clank games than go back to Resistance)" Ratchet and Clank is also another been there done that game. So why would that get the exception and not Resistance game? Maybe they should make another Fuse and Overstrike also. Finally, I never said you said those words, but rather that's how I felt was being said in not some many words.
3 was sooooo underrated it was an amazing game !!
I like resistance fall of man...I didn’t like resistance 2...it felt like to much like Halo. I never played Resistance 3.
I'd like for them to do a remaster first. Resistance collection.
Resistance 3 was by far one of the best FPS I played last gen
Maybe insomniac aren't ambitious enough or dont have faith in themselves to make a new resistance? They said they rather make a sunset overdrive sequel
Coop on this was really good
Want this sooo bad. The trilogy remastered would be amazing too. Do it Bluepoint!!!
I would say they will do a Spider-Man trilogy and another developer might take over Resistance. The series has a lot of potential you could go fps again or even third person open world survival during Chimera occupation.
BEST FIRST PERSON SHOOTER EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I It's why I love Insomniac!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah, there's so much story to be told. The real ending was just radio transmissions of humans all around Earth fighting back. There's still Grayson out there and he's still Infected.
This. If that was the ending to the series, omg, so rushed and anti climactic after all the gray matter and other-aliens intel to just say “we won”. By Capelli blowing up one thing in one city in one country. To me it sounded like the tide was turning, but the war was far from over. I hate Avengers types of killswitches where all the bad guys fall down just because. The Chimera are still alive all over the world. There’ll still be pockets of resistance out there, no pun intended.
Man the multiplayer of these games were SO good. 30 vs 30 was insane
Insomniac killed that franchise by making it unrecognizable by 3.
Resistance 2 had one of the best online coop mode ever. Please bring it back
insomniac has a bad habit of giving into their fans and ruining their games. hence resistance 3 lacking everything good about one and two.
There are other devs that could do Resistance if Insomniac is too busy for a return. Or just get Bluepoint to remaster the trilogy
They should continue Spiderman! I think that they are on to something awesome!
OH man please bring that back...but start over and revamp the franchise. I mean a completely different character and story line. Resistance One (Epic), Resistance 2 (sub-par) Resistance 3 (Epic).
So you’re telling me there is a chance ??
Heh, cue the Lloyd Christmas gif!
haha yeah classic quote 😂 didn't think anyone would pick up on that nice
RFOM multiplayer was a blast at that time! <3
I'd prefer a reboot. Insomniac's heart isn't in the series and it showed by Resistance 3. I think that particular game ended too abruptly. Probably because Insomniac just wanted to close that series and continue on to develop more lighthearted games. There are definitely more stories to be told in a rebooted Resistance universe. However, I fail to see where the plot could continue after the ending of the third game. Remember Independence Day 2? I don't want the series to end like that.
I very much enjoyed the multiplayer on resistance 2. But 3 was a shit show in terms of multiplayer
i need a new resistance game, even if done by someone else (the IP is owned by sony after all, not by insomniac)
I really want Resistance 4 it's a great series if Sony made an HD Remaster of the Resistance games for PS4 it would be a day one for me.
