More Resistance 3 images

Resistance 3 is back with a new batch of images, enough to remind us that September 2011 cannot come soon enough. The end of 2011 is shaping up very well for PS3 owners.

This looks so much better that the previous titles. It looks mature and gritty. I'm interested.

It looks exactly the same, tonally. The conversion facilities already in Resistance 1 were fucking grim, and so were the Spinners in 2. Sure you're not confusing it with Ratchet & Clank? :P

It looks a lot better than R2, that's for sure.

Someone was playing Left 4 Dead 2 WAY too much while making their game.

it really does, the environments in particular look amazing. but then i really liked the environments in R2 too. sounds interesting too, with the whole world in ruin, fighting for survival, people resorting to canibalism...on paper it reminds me of the film "the road", only with chimera. i can't imagine it being as intense or atmospheric as that film (it's a shooter after all) but that's what i picture when i read about this game.

Glad Insomniac are taking longer to develop their games now, you can really see it from the images/gameplay trailer. Cannot wait to see more, looks fantastic! :D

Pretty bullshots, definitely a big leap over the previous two games. Whether or not the gameplay can rise above the generic mediocrity of R1 and R2 however, remains to be seen.

generic mediocrity
I really didn't feel that R1 was generic, but it was certainly an aggressively flimsy, weightless and average playing game. It had cool twists to the weaponry and a good blend of "period piece" and sci fi that I thought gave it a certain flair though.

Resistance 2 is where things get generic. That's a more capable core game, and a lot of the progression in it is (and I've said this before) evocative of how Halo carries itself, although with infinitely less sophisticated encounters, because R2 is super arcadey.

However, whatever unique streak R1 had going for it, R2 squanders with its move from europe to america and tricking everyone out with typical sci fi shooter gear. Gear which has become uniform with the sort of arsenal you get with any game. No more nutty "bullet swarm" or incendiary foam stuff, just your stock fucking space marine gear. And perhaps most importantly; It's no longer about humanity with pea shooters in contrast to the relentlessly alien Chimera, the way R1 so successfully portrayed.. now it's kinda just your usual sci fi freakout.

For 3 I hope they tap into the things that set Resistance apart to begin with. I know that's a foreign concept to people who wrote it off along with the entire Playstation 3 platform for all those years, but there was something fairly appealing buried within that original game. I hope they can have R3 evoke it again, and finally make a proper great shooter out of it in the process.

It looks like HL2 except not as good, even with the bullshots. It certainly does look better than the previous two titles though and I generally like the direction they have taken with style. 3rd time is a charm for many, except for The Matrix of course, lol.

Okay now I'm confused. Did I watch a Killzone 3 trailer the other day or Resistance 3? Cuz that looks like the same giant killer robot to me, from what I can remember.

One good thing i can at least say for Resistance is how they haven't as yet embraced the notion that Aliens talking is somehow a brilliant idea

I both like and absolutely hate how the Covenent Elites chatter and are portrayed in Halo for example.It was Bungie's biggest mistake and a massively disapointing shock- almost as shocking as playing as the Arbiter despite how he is actually pretty cool as well.Halo2 was great in ways but definitely a love and hate thing coming from playing Halo1 solidly for years

Mystery is much more powerful way of how you express these types of story and Bungie pretty much destroyed all of that by this decision.I tend to view Halo1 for example as the real story of what happened while still enjoying adventures with the Chief in another parallel - stupid and i'm not sure i really believe that but i want to.It's why i'm not going to watch the new Tron film as frankly it's just not going to be the same

But anyway Resistance has so far resisted the urge to go all talkie and that's to my mind actually a good place for them to be.The trouble with previous Resistance games however is they're not great games.Maybe R3 will address some of the more obviously wrong regards to gameplay because it's always felt like a game to me and nothing like as compelling as you would hope- R2 proved worse as well

I was thinking this very thing.
As for the Covenant being understandable, I get that it's annoying that they don't have the mystery, thus making them a less straight-forward enemy. I do, however, applaud Bungie for giving the "enemy" their own motivations other than "I'm the evil bad guy out to destroy everything with no reason" regardless of how ultimately trite the "holy war" thing has become( although if you read the books, you come to realize there is a lot more to it)...
