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,...

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 PAX impressions
by Wesley Ruscher

Playable for the first time in the good old U.S. of A, Resistance: Burning Skies brings the much-loved Insomniac shooter to Sony’s sexy little Vita. Developed by Nihilistic, Burning Skies is a brand new game in the series set during the invasion of the Chimera -- basically right before Resistance 2 with an all-new and axe-wielding protagonist.

As firefighter Tom Riley, you are thrown right into the heat of things with the Chimera invading a burning New York City. While Resistance’s last portable effort on the PSP was by no means a slouch visually, the graphical fidelity that the Vita brings to the handheld market is instantly noticeable with Burning Skies' fire-saturated vistas.

Preview: Resistance 3 approaches epic levels

Resistance told the story of Nathan Hale, a solider that fought in the military against the invading Chimera. The military forces of the world came together to hold back the Chimeran invasion. That didn't go so well. Resistance 2 takes the battle to the United States, where Hale helps fight off a full-scale invasion on both of the country's coasts. That didn't go very well, either.

Resistance 3 is very different from those game. The story has progressed to the point where the war has been lost, and now the world has been taken over by the Chimera. The invasion is fully underway, and the surviving people of the world are still adjusting. Joseph Capelli is the main character; and those who played Resistance 2 will know him very well. How he relates to Nathan Hale is a huge spoiler for those that didn't finish Resistance 2.

Joseph has a wife and child and is just trying to survive in this post-invasion world. Dr. Malakov, a key figure from Resistance 2, tracks Joseph down with a last-ditch effort to save the world. The Doctor says that if they can get to New York there might be a way to halt the progress of the invasion. Joe would rather stay with his family but is ultimately convinced that he needs to go. The story in Resistance 3 is Joseph's journey. It takes players on an American trip from Haven, Okalahoma to New York, but is unlike any cross-country road trip you've ever been on.
