After an amazing trilogy, where is the next big game in the Resistance franchise?
I'm sorry but Sony's FPS lineup last gen was meh. None of them stood a chance or stood on their own in last gens golden age of FPS. I do not want resistance or killzone, Sony missed their chance to make them relavant. I honestly think they should keep doing what they are doing with their current lineup and leave Devs like guerilla games and insomniac doing their own thing.
I respectfully disagree, the Resistance trilogy was master class in fun gameplay in SP/MP and in story telling. Specially, Resistance 3...what an underrated gem!
I wouldn't turn down a Resistance or Killzone, that said Sony has found a market they are basically the only company filling. EA, Activision and even Microsoft ect. pump out shooter after shooter, why go for that market when those companies are leaving the door open for Horizon, Detroit, God of War and Spider-Man.
Same, before Wolfenstein/Doom, Resistance was one of the only arcade shooters that didn't try to cram RPG elements down my throat, was satisfying as hell, and actually kept me interested in what was going on in the story. Hell i've been contemplating rebuying the trilogy just to give it another run as wolfenstain/Doom has really revitalized my urge to play simple arcade shooters
I can't say I feel the same way about the first two but yeah, Resistance 3 was an extremely good game. It really saddens me that it just missed out on this old school shooter revival we're seeing at the moment. No one appreciated just how good R3 was when it came out because everyone was still infatuated with soulless, cinematic corridor shooters with a two weapon limit and regenerating health. Damn shame. Hopefully the series will get another shot in the future.
I liked burning skies but its main issue (for me) was being limited to the vita instead of being the beginning of a new trilogy for the Ps4.
@Srhalo Great point. The FPS market is already dominated by other big publishers, so why not double down on other genres? Also somewhat agree with @gameseveryday, I recently picked up the trilogy to finish the first and last games. R3 is definitely underrated and hits that perfect balance, but I can't yet say whether it's a masterclass game outside of the joyous gameplay (Insomniac's forte). Thinking of Bioshock, Halo, and Metro, the expectations are high. Always had a soft spot for Insomniac after the Spyro trilogy and every mainline R&C.
i liked the idea a lot and had them but my biggest problem with ps3 was how dam bad the controller was.It was just insanely crappy and even smaller controller than ps2. Thank god they hired an american guy to design the ps4 and ps4 controller. Even though i never got a ps4 i know how much better that controller is.It just killed it for me with that system. Great game though
Resistance 3 was utterly fantastic. I loved the change in tone, the more serious story....and I may have been alone in this, but playing it in true 3D is a treat. I still play some of the PS3 3D games. Bonus 140" projection with 3D...fun fun.
I loved those games...FoM was the perfect launch game. Good story and pure old school shooter enjoyment through and through. Sony should imho, do a Resistance Trilogy and /or Killzone Trilogy Remake (like SotC) and gauge people's reaction to them. If we respond (I believe we will) then they should give the green light for a reboot. That said why not revive Socom as well? It has the potential to be the most harcore BR game out there. Then there's MAG...Sony is sitting on so many IPs its crazy. But I do have to applaud them for risking and investing in new IPs.
Would agree that Resistance 3 was very much underrated and is my favourite of the trilogy. Would love to see it return one day. Killzone on the other hand for me has always struggled to achieve greatness. The nearest it reached was Killzone 2. Killzone 3 was just ok and Shadow Fall I'm just not sure what it is about that game, but it just doesn't click with me. I'd happily see Resistance return but I think we should let Killzone rest in piece
You don’t want them, that’s okay. Why should Sony make less games becasue of you? It didn’t help that COD was overshadowing every FPS in the market where Sony FPS exclusives were the most affected, but Killzone and Resistance were fun and great series Resistance needs to make a comeback
isarai Good one, FPS Shooter without RPG was so good!
Too many average FPS games were released last gen with everyone trying to copy Halo/COD.
I am sorry, but that is just your opinion.
Dude, Killzone 3 was baller, no idea what you're talking about!
Spurg Don't know what you are talking about killzone 2 had good story campaign and amazing online. Resistance 2 had the best 8 player co-op and to this day I don't understand why one of the most played modes wasn't included in resistance 3 I see killzone making a huge comeback via a sift reboot as a launch title for Ps5
Loved the 8 player online co-op. My only complaint was they didn't do more expansions. I would buy a new Resistance day 1. Heck if they remastered and rereleased the trilogy I would be starting up again. Maybe they should get Bluepoint to remaster them.....
@Spurg Respectfully agreed. I played the entire trilogy (Resistance) back to back to back and only the 3rd game had a soul. A real gamer would have no problem stating facts. Disagree if you know I'm telling the truth.
Confusing opinion for facts... Resistance 1 was the best! My opinion and that is a fact!
Probably you are saying Sony's FPS are just meh cause you know Sony FPS's aren't noob friendly coug..coug .COD, cough..Hal..o XD There is a review of Angry Joe of Killzone Shadowfall and he make a rant cause of the helghast milimetric aiming and most of the time he was just dying lol.
i didnt like resistance but i know alot who did ,i enjoyed killzone 1 and 2 most bu making another isnt something i would ask for... games like Last of us,Horizon, Detroit, God of War and Spider-Man icant get enough of. i would lov a new Splinter Cell(but like old Chaos Theory was)
Killzone 2 was easily the best traditional FPS of last gen. It has a unique sense of aiming and movement with emphasis on accuracy and proactive planning, and less on twitch shooting.
Nonsense, Resistance 3 was one of the best SP FPS last gen.
That's the first time I've seen triple-digit disagrees. Congratulations!
Why should PS4 have lesser choice on the shelves because YOU say so? I think there should be a new resistance 4 with a huge story akin to how Wolfenstein is ie a very large story campaign
Hmmm.. IMO Resistance and Killzone both kicked CoD's and Halo's (after 3) butts in terms of gameplay and fun factor for mature audiences. The other ones simply sold more due to marketing and appealing to preteens with easy, rewarding, skill-less mechanics.
Already said, but I will state it as well. The market was over saturated with shooters. Enough said. Putting out a brand new shooter would be less of a risk (imo) than a KZ or Resistance. Better yet let's just keep those two on the burner, and reboot Socom to compete with PubG and Fortnite. Well I would prefer it do the Socom thing, but everyone's trying to ride the Battle Royal money train. As much as humans like familiar things, and want more of the not broken don't fix it analogy damn is creativity dead or what.
I would be shocked if Sony didn't try and revive Socom and have it as a launch title for PS5 with a battle royale mode to attract the masses.
Sony already said they don't want to compete with the big shooters that are already on their system (COD, BF and etc.) A spiritual successor of Socom 2 is getting ported as we speak, H-Hour, to the PS4 which started in March. I am sure Sony is keeping an eye on that game to see if it garner up some attention.
@madforaday https://steamcharts.com/app... H Hour is absolute garbage, it runs terrible, feels terrible and it does SOCOM a great disservice being associated with it. Also it just had a scorching hot 32 concurrent users, so REALLY don't get your hopes up for that one.
@Psuedo I completely agree with you. When I saw the title for this article, I also thought "where is SOCOM, MAG, and Warhawk?" I mean a gritty battlefield-like Warhawk reboot as a PS5 launch title would awesome!
We need a resistance game. The franchise is one of the best fps games ive ever played.
You seem easily impressed by anything like the rest of N4G camp , are you always the "yes" guy who say yes to anything from Sony despite Sony have a huge library of games that needs to be revived , tbh i'm sick of seeing you being the "yes this yes that" type of guy , its just shows the fanboy-ish side of you more than the gaming side
Its the Sony culture from the PS3 days, where exclusives were overvalued due to not being much of them. Its ok to not like certain games, I say.
Overvalued due to not being much of them? There were more exclusives back then than there are today.
Three Resistance games, two Killzone + an HD port of KZ1, three Uncharted, three Motorstorm, HD ports of all the PSP GOW games + a couple new console GOWs, WipEout, Modnation Racers, LBP Karting, MAG, Socom, Warhawk, Starhawk, Sly Cooper, Heavenly Sword, Valkyria Chronicles, a couple inFamous games, a couple LittleBigPlanets, a couple GTs, a couple more R&C:Futures, MGS4, Twisted Metal, Demons Souls, Dragons Crown, Puppeteer, TLOU, PS Allstars, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Journey, Siren, NiNoKuni, a couple more White Knight Chronicles, Tales of Xilia, Yakuzas etc. Some of the games in that list I bought, some I didn’t. From Insomniac’s vault, I’d buy a Resistance 4 before another R&C or Sunset Overdrive. Nothing to do with culture. I just don’t think R3 was the ending that series deserved. It’s better than a credits epilogue, and bigger than Capelli.
Next gen its an IP that they should try and resurrect probably with a new developer as Insomniac will be doing more Spiderman games. Last gen the market was over saturated with FPS games that maybe make Resistance third person or even open world survival trying to battle the Chimera. Sony seem to have a knack for getting third person games right compared to their history with FPS's.
Sony liked to be different in terms of their FPS, and they also change the game with each to iteration of the game which doesn't help the game in term of it staying competitive. Killzone 2 was one of the best shooter last generation but people didn't like the weight of how the guns feel. During that time, twitch shooters were the real big thing, KZ2 was not one of those. The game also wasn't perfect either. Almost all of their shooter PvP games, get changes so drastically which IMO ruins the actual game if the original game was really good. Uncharted 2 had some of the best PvP, but Uncharted 3 totally ruined that concept. Socom 2 to Socom 3 was a HUGE drastic step which showed in sales which were behind Socom 2 and the original Socom. Resistance had a great PvP mode that was VERY competitive at the time. Resistance 2 ruined that by totally changing the formula to cater to bigger PvP games. Sony's PvP games aren't very consistent so people don't know what to expect.
True, and with the success Sony have got his gen without needing a big exclusive FPS I cant see them putting resources in to developing one but they be tempted to make a battle royale game of some sorts.
@jbull They already have 2 BR games on it's system, Sony doesn't like to compete with other big games. Sony's market seems to be heavy on cinematic stories because not many games are doing that. I am enjoying Sony's games more than I am than movies to be honest. GOW and Horizon, blew me away in terms of story and game play. You can get a lot out in a 30 hour video game compared to a 2 hour movie with no control how it plays. I did hear that Guerrilla Games hired someone who did stuff with Esports, because I am itching a good first party PvP game from them.
The money they may earn from one might tempt them though especially if they can establish one early next gen.
My favourite game of all time,
I said that with Resistance 2 I was like "What happened to Fall of Man 2" It lost it's charm...but it got some of it back with Resistance 3
I agree with you completely on this. The 2nd is the worst Resistance to me because the MP was just dogsh** the Sp was fun along with the co op but the series never had another strong MP offering like Fall of man.
Resistance 2 was a big middle finger to the people who loved the first PvP in the first game. I will say the COOP in Resistance 2 was amazing though. I wasn't a big online COOP person, but R2 COOP was fun.
Just remast the trilogia before PS5.
Easy answer: Resistance 1 estimated sales: 4.37m Resistance 2: 2.47m Resistance 3: 1.49m People clearly didn't keep their interest in the game.
I loved R:FOM, don't get me wrong, but it's sales were inflated by virtue of it being by far the best launch game, and really one of the best exclusives during the first part of the PS3's life cycle. I think if the latter games could have sold 3m each, that would have been a success. 2 turned people off the series in a big way, though, because it ditched many of the good aspects of FOM to add COD-esque features. 3 fixed a lot of that, but people were burned by 2. I was a huge fan of 1 and bought 2 day one, but I waited like 8 months to get 3. Then it ended up being one of the best single player shooters of the generation.
Being a launch title saved it. It was not a groundbreaking title, and they should've have invested it into the Vita more.
Would love a Resitance trilogy remaster
I really enjoyed Resistance 1&2...
It ended, simple as that
Sony? don't you mean Insomniac?
Nope he means Sony because Sony owns the Resistance IP, not Insomniac Games. Insomniac is just a developer and Sony chooses if the new Resistance game will be made by Insomniac or some other developer.
Resistance, MAG, Socom, and Warhawk. I miss all these gems
If they had put bots in Warhawk, I never would have stopped playing it.
Starhawk is another example of Sony making a great new IP for PvP, and throwing it all away in a sequel. Warhawk on PS3, was such an amazing game! Sony doesn't do well when their PvP games do well. They try to do something outside of the box which usually fails. Mag was amazing until the patch that ruined most of the guns and the DLC that split the community.
@madforaday Yeah, I never even tried Starhawk. Warhawk was really a missed opportunity. Big fans of the original Battlefront games (the PS2/Xbox ones from mid 2000s) had nothing from that series for an entire generation (and really, the new battlefront games haven't lived up either, but that's another story). Warhawk was the closest thing to a classic Battlefront game that entire generation. MAG was great too. So much more skill based than the FPS games that were big on console at the time.
Warhawk = best MP game of all time, hands down.
Bring back SOCOM.
I am crossing my fingers that the port of H-Hour, which they started in March, will be decent. They did update that game a lot and the PC version looks pretty good, but no one plays it. I have a feeling SOF studios is going to do a Daybreak type situation with what they did with H1Z1. The PS4 is where the majority of players are playing H1Z1.
I think a resistance game could be huge right now, it just feels like the right time to bring it back.
I would be interested in a Resistance FPS RPG. Do a game where they took over most of the world, and we have to slowly build up and team up to take down Chimera throughout the world. Our tech is becoming more alien because of our knowledge of Chimera. Or a game where we go one of their worlds where they lost and find out how they lost and why.
Resistance isn't a Battle Royale or Arena shooter, and you consumers have made it very clear that you'll buy nothing else.
Humans lost, it's over
Probably for the best to give an ip a break after 4 releases. Halo could have used one and Gears didnt get a long enough one. Those were powerful 10 million a game sales beasts on 360. Ms doesnt know how to nurture their properties. Fable has had a perfect break. Resistance is being revived by being a wish unfullfilled right now.
We so need a remaster of the trilogy if we get nothing else. Also where is more Ratchet and Clank???
On hiatus atm obviously. The story wrapped up after 3. Insomniac is busy with Spiderman at the moment.
I know Spiderman is going to be popular and a money maker, but personally I would much rather have Resistance than Spiderman. Just not a fan of mainstream superheroes.
Insomniac said a while ago they weren't doing the Resistance games anymore & it's a possibility Sony hasn't thought of a developer that can continue the franchise including the fact Sony are focused on other games at this point in time.I never played the first Resistance they should remaster all 3 games for the PS4.
“But I have learned over the years to never say never. I think there are a lot of people out there that have fond memories of a Resistance game from the PS3 era, but yeah, never say never, it’s just that we have no plans to make another Resistance game in the future.” Long story short, it isn't up to them.
