With Resistance 2 now a distant memory of towering boss fights, complex and convoluted multiplayer and ultimately mixed responses from gamers and the wider media, all eyes were on Insomniac today.
The weapon wheel had me sold.
old school style :) it just works and its fun.
Fuck you IGN!
ill just leave this here
Just watch the trailer Mint posted. Pure awesomeness.
@MintBerryCrunch Thank you! Oh my f**king god that looks badass! PS3 rapes xbot culo!
Thanks MintBerryCrunch, Looks fantastic, and i love how you can actually aim down the sights this time. As far as this guy at IGN goes, the multiplayer wasn't complicated lol You gotta be stupid to think that. I liked Resistance 2 quite a bit, bit the single player just wasn't as good as the first one. I didn't care for Resistance: Retribution as I thought it was boring, but I did like Grayson as a character. I hope they keep co-op as part of the online experience. Resistance FTW
Thank you insomniac. This sounds like the best version of them all. The mechanics of the first game, with the the continued evolution from the 2nd game. Just add a little horror into the mix, and the Resistance 3 may go into my top 5 for PS3. Currently Uncharted 2 MGS4 God of War 3 Killzone 2 (looks like 3 will take this place, and may bump someone off) LBP 2 (Would be up there with U2 and MGS4 if the online worked. I understand you can play around the world, but my goodness it's unplayable with random people. This was a problem in the first game that should have been fixed in the second. But it's still one of my favorite games.)
My most anticipated game this year :) EDIT: The force is strong with the disagree fairies 2day lol.
'ets hope the sp wont be a scripted boring mess like 1/2 especially the boss fight in the city against the 100ft monster way 2 scripted.
i love it!!! shedding tears, insomniac said the game looks a plays vaSTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE FIRST. NO MORE REGEN HEALT. WHICH MEANS SURVIVAL AND TACTICS are a must. you cant charge and gun sling.... love what i'm seeing.
He ends off the article by talking about the color style of the game. When these people mention that are they implying that the PS3 can't produce color? Art style is art style, I don't understand the need to mention the color choice of a developer. Kinda annoying really. On topic, can't wait for this game. Good stuff.
And it's stupid, because we as fans loved the original Resistance for it's darker, gritty style graphics and they listened, by putting it back into R3, yet IGN for whatever reason, just love to complain.
resistence 2 wasnt a bad game but it wasnt great either but i think they know that and with killzone graphics which i think he was refering too, its going to be a blast.
How is 9.5 not a great game? Basically, IGN just want to hate.
I'm so hyped for this!!!
.57 mag? hell yeaaaaaaa!
I really like the Bullseye tether thing. It just looks awesome (and helpful for knowing where the hell the enemy is...)
Have you guys noticed how in this article, IGN talks about Resistance 2 as if it was a disappointment even though they gave it a 9.5? That is really inconsistent
That's IGN for you
That's the problem with gaming reviews. There is no standard methodology for these sites. This does all come together to give the reviewers less credibility, IMO.
Well i was late to the Resistance party, played the first game a couple of months ago, and atm i'm playing Res2. Awesome game the second one, but there are a few parts of the first game i prefer over the second. Second game is hands down better graphically. But the first game is more moody, and i like that. I don't like the auto regenerate of the second game as much. Love the lighting engine of the second game and the water is actually done pretty well. Weapons are always good. Various types and much fun to shoot. It's sci-fi after all. ------- Love the look of the new wheel for weaps. Environments look much improved with alot going on. Enemies look sweet:0 Day 1 for me:))))))
How was the multiplayer complicated and convoluted? It had the same deathmatch and objective modes every other MP game has, only the names were changed. It was also customizable and had class based 8 man co-op. Not my favorite MP (I hate bullet sponges and miss gaining XP in custom 1-shot-kill games) but it wasn't complicated. 87 metacritic is not what I'd call mixed media response either. It scored higher than Resistance 1 including a 9.5 on IGN. I hate how so many journalists are allergic to research. I guess it's easier to re-write history to conform to your opinion than it is to do a quick 10 sec google. Day 1 buy for me in any case. Looks good!
