Review: Resistance 3 photo
Review: Resistance 3
by Jim Sterling

Resistance has always been a bit of a strange series for the PlayStation 3. As an exclusive, it's always enjoyed added exposure and attention from press, but divisive opinions on its quality and the dated nature of its gameplay have awarded it far less commendation compared to the likes of inFAMOUS and Uncharted

Almost taking its place as the "B" shooter compared to the big-budget Killzone, Resistance is a series that has struggled to find its place, and the past two main entries have been so different that the lack of a unifying identity could be considered detrimental.

With Resistance 3, however, Insomniac Games may finally have found that special something.

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.

These Resistance 3 shots have a distinct lack of monsters

When I get given Resistance 3 shots, I want only one thing -- pictures of really gross Chimera, so I can look at them and say, "Eeww, those Chimera are really gross!"  Unfortunately, somebody at Sony felt we needed to lo...
