Friday Night Fights: Resistance is futile

As you’ve probably heard, Insomniac has officially bowed out of making new Resistance games. Considering the third (and best) game didn’t sell well, I can’t say this comes as a shock, but it’s still a sad day overall for fans of alternate timelines full of insane weapons and glowy-eyed enemies, so let’s all take a moment and pour one out for Hale and the boys.

Still, the future is far from dim. I, for one, am certainly looking forward to the studio’s next project, especially after hearing they’re going multi-platform this time around. What about you? Sad to see Resistance go the way of the Dodo? Excited for the future? Just don’t care?

Regardless, that’s enough sad sh*t for one day; it’s FNF time! Hit the jump and let’s go shoot each other! Who knows, maybe we’ll even play some Resistance!

New to FNF? Read this! Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It’s a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!

The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Gamertag, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up in the community blogs followed by a recap post here on the front page for last-minute planning.

To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don’t forget to say you’re from Dtoid!) If you’d rather host something yourself, sound off in the comments section below!

We hope to see you online!
