This is your last weekend to play the Resistance trilogy online

I vaguely recall Sony announcing that it would pull its servers for the Resistance trilogy on PlayStation 3 this year and it's happening soon. Real soon. Consider this your last chance to play those games online (including co...

Why Insomniac decided against making Resistance 4

Although Insomniac Games finished its work on the Resistance series with Resistance 3, that didn't stop Burning Skies from happening, unfortunately. It's possible (plausible, even) that another studio will take on the franchi...

Sony has 'no definitive plans' for Resistance franchise

Like Resistance? I do, though it was never that big blockbuster franchise that I think Sony wanted it to be. It did well enough for them, and most of the games (not Resistance 2 or the Vita title) were pretty good. That said,...

Review: Resistance: Burning Skies photo
Review: Resistance: Burning Skies
by Jim Sterling

For a long time, Sony has wanted to bring the console experience to handheld devices, and the PlayStation Vita represents its most successful attempt to date, armed as it is with impressive visual capabilities and a wealth of control options. Ironically, the Vita's early games ignored the Vita's strength in this regard, instead focusing on tech demos for touch controls in an industry where touch control has very much been demonstrated to death. 

Resistance: Burning Skies was the potential jewel in the crown, though, an online-capable first-person shooter to show the world just how close a gamer can come to playing their favorite titles on the go. As the world's first portable twin-stick FPS, Burning Skies had a golden opportunity to set a benchmark for handheld gaming.

Instead, it settled on being the new worst Vita game to date.

Interview: Getting portable in Resistance: Burning Skies

Last week, I went out and shot some gross aliens in Resistance: Burning Skies, the first honest-to-goodness FPS to hit the Playstation Vita. While there, I spoke with Nihilistic Games' Charles Henden, who's a gameplay programmer on the multiplayer portion of the game. It certainly looks like a promising title, but you don't have to take my word for it -- go read Abel's preview too.

Resistance: Burning Skies is ready to set the Vita ablaze photo
Resistance: Burning Skies is ready to set the Vita ablaze
by Abel Girmay

With a relatively thin PlayStation 3 launch line-up, Resistance: Fall of Man was a saving grace for early adopters. Almost six years later, the Resistance franchise has gone on to be a critical mainstay for Sony's systems. With Insomniac no longer at the helm, the Resistance franchise continues under Sony's stewardship. Resistance: Burning Skies is the first big test to see if the series can go on without its original auteur.

From what I've seen recently, yes, it most definitely can. Burning Skies maintains what makes Resistance, well, Resistance. Crazy guns and a heavy, desolate atmosphere are all as present in Burning Skies as in past entries. The multiplayer did leave something to be desired, but the total package is shaping up to be a real treat for fans.

Insomniac: 'We won't be making any more Resistances'

Damn, son. Just put it all out there. Insomniac CES Ted Price told VG247 how it would be from here on out, in the most direct way possible: "We won’t be making any more Resistances." Resistance 3 was easily the best of ...
