It's time to shut the door on the least memorable shooter franchise of the previous generation. Online services for Resistance: Fall of Man and its two sequels will cease functioning on April 8. Surely someone out there is sad?
Resistance started out as a Halo clone. It was to be Sony's answer to Microsoft, the PlayStation's own sci-fi shooter and killer app. It was to sell millions and earn its own base of rabid fans.
Insomniac Games made Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, and Resistance 3. What about Resistance 4?
Sony will be launching an entirely new Resistance game on the Vita titled Resistance: Burning Skies. Developed by Nihilistic Games, the studio behind PlayStation Move: Heroes and Starcraft: Ghost, Resistance: Burning Skies will head back in time a ways, taking place as the Chimera invade Earth.
In many ways, Playstation 3 first-person shooter Resistance was a return to their roots for the studio behind Ratchet and Clank and Spyro the Dragon.
Confirming last night's Walmart ad, Sony has announced ten new titles joining the PlayStation 3's budget-priced Greatest Hits line, with inFAMOUS, God of War Collection, Killzone 2 and Resident Evil 5 and more now available for $29.99.
According to this scan from a new Walmart catalogue, Sony has just added some big-hitting new games to its line-up of budget "Greatest Hit" titles for the PlayStation 3.
Big speculation is that tomorrow's "surprise Sony Sequel" is Resistance 3, but if it is - a) Insomniac's community manager is not saying and b) even if it were, the studio is also working on a second game.
Yup, more toys from Toy Fair, this time in the form of that clown from Twisted Metal who I hate because he reminds me of Insane Clown Posse. Oh, and some of the lovable cast from Resistance 2.
As if we needed another excuse to visit our local comic book stores, DC Unlimited is finally shipping its Ratchet & Clank and Resistance action figures to wherever fine monthly graphical literature is sold.
Resistance 2, Insomniac Games' follow-up to PlayStation 3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man, reviewed better than the original sci-fi first person shooter. So why is Insomniac so bummed about reception to that game?
While Sony showed a little love to Killzone fans by manufacturing some replica Helghast rifles, there's been no such courtesy extended towards fans of the PS3's other sci-fi shooter, Resistance. So fans have to pick up the slack.
Swimming is something you and I can probably do — and will do more this summer. But swimming has long been an ability less common to video game characters than running, jumping or shooting shotguns. I asked top developers why.
Insomniac will, later today, be releasing two new pieces of content for their shooter Resistance 2. One is a map pack. The other? Some new multiplayer character skins.
Next week's Game Developers Conference is going to be packed with hands-on, presentations and even a little news.
Last August, Sony asked you to vote for your favourite Resistance 2 cover. One option was the classy European cover, the other two, they looked like PS1 games. The classy one didn't win.
In a post on the official PlayStation blog, Insomniac Community Manager Bryan Intihar detail the changes coming to Resistance 2 when patch 1.40 is deployed on January 26th.
