I can't wait to get this game, September 6th!

Daver2664d ago

Me too, Resistance 2 disappointed me but I know this one will be a lot better from what i saw so far.

killcycle2664d ago

The coop in Res2 was really fun imo so much was going on on-screen and you don't lose a single frame.

They tried to focus on too many different things and that's what killed it, coop, sp, mp, all the different modes.

I prefer it when games stick to just a small unique bunch of things that make the game what it is and put the dev time into that.

Bull5hifT2664d ago

I actually Despised Them For Wanting to Go Multiplat, ill Buy This , but after seeing some E3 gameplay it looks soo amazing id be very surprised if they can pull anything this good off on the 360

Army_of_Darkness2664d ago

I'm getting this game even though I still got dozens of games to still finish!

"Capelli makes Master Chief look like a B**ch"

G4HERP says:

"Master who?"

Jonah_Reese2664d ago

BattleAxe SHUT UP, I guess you're going to say that huh?

Soldierone2664d ago

Lmao yeah right. I can't wait to see IGN compare it to Halo or COD and call it sub par and "didn't change anything" for the genre....then go and praise the hell out of MW3 saying it "innovated the world" watch...IGN just makes me laugh now.

As for the game, pre ordered and ready to play! :D

Dee_912664d ago

Must ... NOT ... PLAY .. ... BETA !!!!

Kurt Russell2664d ago

I really liked Resistance 2 :(

I am looking forward to this though :D

Ju2663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

I liked R2. I think what the problem was with the game was polishing. It did shine in various places, but they couldn't keep that level through the whole game. I still think over all it was great.

Now, if they can build on that and take what R:FoM made the series great (atmosphere, narrative, combat style, etc) and pump up the visuals even above R2, well, then, Ladies and Gentlemen, we got a winner.

I remember R2 released with KZ2; around the same time. I played the crap out of both, constantly switching back and forth between those for weeks.

Can't wait for R3!

TooTall192663d ago

Dmarc you should play the beta now. There are a lot of things to learn with the new play changes. They also fixed the freezing issue! After playing the beta I'm tempted to buy now.

WhittO2664d ago

My money is so low lately I can't even afford to buy it! haha :(
I'll get it in a month or so when my money picks back up, can't wait to play it because I haven't seen much of this game at all so I can sit down and really just play the sh*t out of it haha, I really like the resistance world too so can't wait to see how it turns out lol.
I still havent even bought Infamous 2 yet!! :(

pixelsword2664d ago

Don't despair, today isn't tomorrow: and who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Minimox162664d ago

same here, i still havent pick infamous 2 and LBP2 :( and also I want WKC2 that came out next month :/

yeah that the attitude :D

KendrickGLS2664d ago

Now that's the right idea! I sure wish Resistance wasn't a exclusive because I'm stuck with Gears eventhough it's awsome, but just not as good as Resistance. And tomorrow will bring something good or maybe something bad but who cares right now so don't be as paranoid as pixelsword. Righteous!

Tired2664d ago

Got it on order, counting the days. Hope the 3D is implemented well...some games are great but some look naff...I'm praying this wont be one of the naff ones.

zeddy2664d ago

i hope the single player is 10 hours +, im not getting it for multiplayer.

ChronoJoe2664d ago

Then your missing out.

Both SP and MP look like they've had equal attention, and both look pretty great :)

2664d ago
Ju2663d ago

Not getting it for the MP either - but will play the crap out of it ASAP I'll get it ;) Start liking the Beta.

damnyouretall2664d ago

time to dust off the sharpshooter. hope it works great with this game. couldnt use it in the beta. by the way, where the hell is the demo? it was on psn a few months ago then removed. some people are serious assholes for removing it.

50Terabytespersec2664d ago

The first had this feeling and this stable tone, this atmosphere the second was a mess of a game ...
If they were to ever get the graphics up like say , RAGE or to the level of Killzone this would qualify as AAA but for now it has always been a game that ran on a Half life type of midranged tech..I'll buy it and if it runs below HD I'll sell it after i beat it.

Ju2663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

R2 had awesome visuals at times. Come on, tell me that opening scene isn't top notch, or that San Francisco/Golden Gate level. So, from a technical standpoint, it was up there with the greatest. But it just wasn't consistently implemented through out the whole games. Some levels looked bland, I give you that.

This game has the best particle effects of all games I ever played. In the scope of the maps it is just phenomenal (map size and number of players).

subtenko2664d ago

Resistance 1 and 2 were cool. Remember that Resistance 2 made everyone spaz out "omg 60 players online and no lag!! Awesome!!" least till mag came out,lol. Just a sony dev challenging a sony dev.

I wonder if Insomniac was challenging anyone with Resistance 3? We know that sucker punch challenge a few devs (in good fun, they mentioned it in an article or two)

Agree or Disagree if you Agree

DoomeDx2664d ago

"Agree or Disagree if you Agree"

this alone, deserves a disagree + a bubble down

subtenko2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

@DoomeDX, marked as a personal attack. that alone deserves a disagree and a - bubble down

Anyone whos been on n4g long enough can respect my comment...

plus, you've followed me and said the same thing offer nothing to the discussion of the article but attack my comments.

Agree or Disagree if you Agree

consolez_FTW2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

@ Subtenko

Yeah man, If you've been on N4G long enough you'll see you always do that "agree or disagree if you agree" thing. It's like your trademark...
On TOPIC: I cant' wait for this. I must finish the Resistance story by buying R3! I don't know if Ill stay for multiplayer though.

Masta_fro2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )


Dude, it says you joined 2011?

And I've never seen you before.

btw, "agree or disagree if you agree" is just pretentious, makes you sound like an 8 yr old who can't be argued with.

FaulkinPunch2663d ago (Edited 2663d ago )

@ Masta_fro well stalking someones profile makes you a stalker in that case...Its really obvious to get subtenkos comment.

He's talking about the "Disagree fairies" as many people like to put them... If you couldn't understand what he was saying then I guess you seem like an 8 year old going by your logic.

Just offense, but its not that hard to understand.

Anyway, about Resistance 3, I'm really eager to see how well it stacks up against Resistance 1. I personally favored Resistance 1 over 2.

showtimefolks2664d ago

i think insomniac taking 3 years instead of 2 and doing things right and doing what fans wanted i am super excited about this

insomniac have said there will be a day one patch to fix many issues that were in beta so really can't wait

am i the only one who wish the 8 player online co-op that was in resistance 2 was in resistance 3?(i loved it)

EeJLP-2664d ago

You don't know what you're talking about. The extra year didn't do a damn thing to help the game or give fans want they wanted.

Last time I checked, RFoM fans didn't want all the restrictions of R2 and then some. R2 fans didn't want co-op removed. Resistance fans didn't want CoD-like Killstreak rewards, etc.

You're talking out of your @ and your 1st and 3rd paragraph contradicting each other proves it.

OllieBoy2665d ago

No doubt it'll be the best in the series.

3 years of development instead of 2 will do that.

SilentNegotiator2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

*will help

100 years would be nothing if they didn't make important changes and listen to the fans. Which is what they're doing, though.

SoapShoes2664d ago

They listened to the fans with FOM which is why R2 lost the weapon wheel, had tons of color, and regenerating health. I think they should listen to fans but not as much as they did with R2.

pixelsword2664d ago

Listening to fans is what made the Star Wars series suck.

FunAndGun2664d ago

@ Estranged

I think it was the critics that ruined R2. What FOM fan didn't like the weapon wheel?

The critics complained about the grays and browns, that is why R2 was saturated with color.

Bebedora2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

^I am so with you on that. They listend and got mixed up. They should, as all developers would, follow their own path. They cannot do things the way others want. Passion is lost and mediocricy kicks in. (My opinion o/c)

[edit] Wrong reply button. Meant for Estranged...

andibandit2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

@ Ollieboy

you mean like Duke Nukem Forever?

farhsa20082665d ago

I have every faith in Insomniac, ever since RFOM they have a special place in my heart!

beavis4play2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

ever since spyro for me!

Acezakj2664d ago

Ratchet & Clank for me!

beavis4play2664d ago

i loved disruptor!! i didn't say that because i liked spyro and his world too much to say otherwise.

Darth_Bane792663d ago

RFOM was the game that got me into online multiplayer shooters :)

SpinalRemains1382664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

I find the multiplayer Beta quite boring. It's not bad, it's just a cookie cutter remake of all FPS. I for sure will be enjoying the single player story though. Looks great.

Emilio_Estevez2664d ago

Couldn't agree more. I can't believe they dropped the 60player mp. The crazyness that was 30vs30 can't be matched, it was(and still is)awesome.

BulletToothtony2664d ago

imo not trying to say that you personally didn't enjoy it.. but that very chaos is only appealing to a minority..

It gets frustrating sometimes when you can't do anything without getting shot from all directions..

the game becomes mostly about luck and not skills.. unless you camp..

I personally like the beta a lot thou.

ZombieNinjaPanda2664d ago

Resistance The First had the best multiplayer imo.

andibandit2664d ago

@ DrStabwounds

havent played Resistance, but yeah, lots of players is crazyness, it's just a whole diffrent game.

from my time in Battlefield(PC)

nycredude2664d ago

How many different variations of mp can there possibly be? Come on be real. Mp in all games are the same thing but with different skins. Sure they all have something unique to that game but bottom line is. You are shooting each other.

I don't think it's fair to label R3 beta as a cookie cutter remake when EVERY mp is pretty much that and can be boring. Now Starhawk we will see.

ZombieNinjaPanda2664d ago

As my comment above, did you not play The first game's multiplayer? It was refreshing, it was different, the two factions actually had different abilities and weapons (though you could take them from dead bodies too).

SpinalRemains1382664d ago

Are you suggesting that the FPS genre is maxed out or has hit its creative ceiling? I strongly disagree. There's always room for improvement or innovation. R3 does none of this. Its spawn, shoot, die repeat.

How about some different elements in a FPS? How about new hand to hand techniques? How about noticeable body damage? How about larger capacity for 60 players? Jesuss man, think about what you're saying. You're advocating to keep it static. I say make changes. Make it better. Make it stand alone as what the genre should be. What it shouldn't be is COD with an alien skin and laser gun.

Szarky2664d ago

Same feelings I had. Was very bored and dissappointed with the MP.

Will be buying sharpshooter bundle for SP though!!!

Wizziokid2664d ago

can't wait to get this, was going to get dead island but i'll have to wait a while since this will be taking most of my play time

IWentBrokeForGaming2664d ago

Im personally getting Dead Island over this because R2 left a bad taste in my mouth and I wasn't impressed as it took steps back compared to R1. Not saying R3 is going to be bad, it just has a lot to prove to me before I'll buy it right off the bat. It don't help that I don't hear much good of the mulitplayer beta too, as online is what keeps me going back to most games!

Old McGroin2664d ago

Prebooked my copy of Dead Island earlier today to get the extra DLC for free, can't frickin' wait, looks excellent!

knowledge4lfe2664d ago

i was gonna pick up dead island but i havent seen any ps3 footage and its gonna be on xbox live but not on that really worries me. ill just rent it at REDBOX when im done with R3. right now im playing deus ex and some R3 beta.
