A picture-pilferer going by the bro-tacular name "1337guyzorz2" is probably giving Insomniac Games and SCEA PR fits right now, much like a similar cat had WBIE marketing folks punching themselves in the thigh over the Batman: Arkham City Internet image spill recently. You see, "guyzorz2" has uploaded a bunch of supposed Resistance 3 images on a public Flickr account, eating away at what hype would have surely followed the game's first in-game action reveal.

Unfortunately, he's revealed little else other than a reaffirmation that things still don't look too good for the people living in the world of Resistance. There's aliens all over place, lots of of bloom, and apparently bone and leather necklaces are still in. 
  

 See? Things don't look so good for our survivors.

Insomniac joked about Resistance 3 being one of the worst kept secrets ever as it officially announced the title at Gamescom in Cologne. Ironically, the studio has managed to keep the details about the game locked down so tight that I'm almost afraid to call it an FPS--and that's after watching the live-action trailer. I find these images haven't really helped me understand more, but these also haven't been released via an official channel which would normally provide some context (if these are, in fact, real).

== TEASER ==I can say with confidence, at least, that these shots look pretty. Have a look:   
 

 Hey, you've changed, man.


 I'm trying to figure out if that's a cellphone or a mine in his hand.


This is where I'd usually make a joke about a monster resembling your mother.
 
Here's the rest of the screenshots: 



 
 And the concept art.

I'm not a fan of the Resistance Franchise... but the Co-Op was pretty awesome in the last game.

#6 Posted by Goldanas (550 posts) -

I've never enjoyed the "self-referential" "jokes" that make their way into image descriptions. It's like there's some kind of law that says every writer needs to force this despondent humor into every under-image text. 
 
If that's your bag, and you enjoy seeing it over and over, then right on to you, brother. Me? They can fuck off right to Hell.

Yes, for Resistance fans, this is cool. It's been a while since Resistance 2. Hopefully the single player in this one will be better than in the second (it's kind of sad when the PSP side game is more fun). 
#8 Posted by jorbear (2517 posts) -

I kinda like the amount of bloom. It looks good.

#9 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I remember the cinematic for this game and it was pretty awesome so I have a lot of hope. Plus, of what I've played of Resistance 2, I didn't like it much. Multiplayer was good, Co-op, idk, i only played twice and had a horrible group both times.

#10 Posted by Spoonman671 (4768 posts) -

These shots seem to capture the mood of the first Resistance, which is definitely a good thing.  Also, Insomniac's decision to change their games from 60 to 30 fps is clearly paying dividends when it comes to detailed graphics.

#11 Posted by Yummylee (22511 posts) -

Can't wait to learn more! I know I'm in the minority but the Resistance games are my FPS of choice.

What are you talking about? Co-op sucked in the last game. It was the most lifeless, boring, empty co-op experience I've ever seen. The first game let you play through the story with 2 people. That was cool, because you were still getting the action. There was no real action, no real tension, no real story, and no real reason to play. My friend and I spent 5 minutes standing around before we decided never to try it again.
 
I'll be honest, the real reason I hate R2, though, is because of the ending. It really pissed me off to see what happened happen, not in the least because it really made no sense in any way whatsoever.
 
If they retcon or adjust the ending and create a story as quality as the first game, I'll pick it up. Otherwise, this doesn't interest me.

cool stuff! cant wait to see some gameplay

#14 Posted by lordofultima (6280 posts) -
@example1013: I think you're delusional, since the co-op was the only redeeming quality about Resistance 2.

Now, I never played it so I can't argue either way. However, it seems to me that you shouldn't make such a bold statement about it if you spent 5 minutes standing around not actually playing before quitting to never return to it.

Assuming these are in game shots and not bullshots, the game looks amazing. Definetly a upgrade from 2.

looks good... but resistance 2 looked good in its first screens aswell so Ill wait and see
#20 Posted by Example1013 (4807 posts) -
@lordofultima: I disagree
 
 
@Spankmealotus: I exaggerated a little. We spent probably 15 minutes in co-op. We didn't stand around, we actually played. It was boring as hell. There was no life or excitement to it at all. We faced probably 5 enemies, and didn't make it past them. And it was really boring fighting them.
 
I love story-mode splitscreen, but I'll even tolerate separate co-op missions, when they're done well. Spec ops in MW2 is a good example. There's no story or real point, beyond completing the missions, but the gameplay is exciting, sort of like levels similar to the campaign.
 
I really don't know how to explain it, and I can't really put my finger on what it was, but I can tell you that R2 co-op was a sucky snorefest.
#21 Posted by BigChief (503 posts) -

I am digging those screenshots(?). They're doing something with the color scheme that makes it look old timey, and I'm digging it. I like the new chimera designs too, and it seems to overall have a more apocalyptic vibe, which might suit Resistance. While I enjoyed Resistance 2 while I played it, on the whole it felt rather generic. I hope this one has a lot more atmosphere.

#22 Posted by Lind_L_Taylor (3966 posts) -

What a shitty exclusive for the PS3.  Are they "ending the
trilogy" for Resistance as well?   hahaha...copycatz.

#23 Posted by sopranosfan (1935 posts) -

It is so popular to hate Resistance games and I can't for the life of me figure out why.  I like it better than Killzone 2 and think it is a very solid shooter especially in the sci-fi genre of shooters.
#24 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

I must say I really, really hate the screen glare effects. Maybe they're better looking in motion, but it makes the screenshots look terrible. Ir makes me blink a number of times to make sure my contact lenses aren't smudged.

#25 Posted by Redbullet685 (6083 posts) -

I absolutely hated Resistance 1. I dont know about this game.

#26 Posted by danpat177 (136 posts) -

gunna get a lot of hate for this  
but i like resistance better then halo ? 
i could just niver get into halo like i did resistance 

#27 Posted by quantumshift5 (415 posts) -

I like the concept behind the franchise but the developers dont seem to know how to make a first person shooter. The first and second games seemed rusty, the controllers I mean. Not enough oil on the hinges.

#28 Posted by Example1013 (4807 posts) -
@sopranosfan: I don't know why people would hate the games on the whole. There are parts that might be less appealing to different people, but overall they were fairly solid.
 
@Lind_L_Taylor: Because trilogies were so original 10 years ago. Hate to break it to you bud, but trilogies have been around for thousands of years. Sophocles' Oedipus plays? They make up a trilogy. Just as an example.
#29 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7184 posts) -

Sweet.

#30 Edited by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

As mediocre as the first two were, they probably sold enough to warrant the third game in the series. We can call it a franchise then, huh?
#31 Posted by face15 (1306 posts) -

I don't understand why everyone be hating on Resistance 2. The campaign was good, the co-op was great and the multiplayer, while not necessarily amazing, was at least unique. 
These screenshots look like there was more to the teaser than I thought, this should be very interesting.

#32 Posted by Evilsbane (4735 posts) -

I couldn't stand 2 but this looks pretty but..we will see...

#33 Posted by Keith_Games (26 posts) -

I hope there's no more "10k kills" trophies...

Nah, I figured they would just copy Bungie (who is quitting
Halo) & the Resistance folks would quit making Resistance 
games.  Monkey see, monkey do.

Well. It looks like Resistance 3. I hope it turns out great.

I like the looks of this, also gives the impression that all of humanity lost the fight and this guy might be some sort of "resistance" fighter *pun kinda intended* like say the some of the French were in WWII after being taken by Germany (aka The French Resistance).

#40 Posted by bybeach (4992 posts) -

I like resistance 1. I saw it for what it was, an advertisement for the PS3, and in that context, it worked well. Otherwise it was derivative to a tee, that was only outdone by good original monster design. And despite the hd of it all and good animation, it also made brown an uncomfortable PS3 word for awhile. 
 
But it has served it's purpose, other better more colorful games have rolled out. Insomniac deserves appreciation from sony both for it's game and it's defence of the system. time to rest. 
 
And one thing, I do not understand the personal bitterness here. Say by that one poster that used to have really pretty asian chicks I sure liked in the avatar spot. IDK, complain to the management, but why rag on the guy for his sense of  humor? Maybe just me but I don't mind a chuckle or 2, no matter how little aware I am of it or not. I'm actually more leery of another writer (actually, camera holder and converstion interupter) here, though he garnishes more sympathy, and I can't see wanting his head, anyways.  I'll all work out with guidance or a word from the full-time  guys.
 
Why?

Meh to the first Resistance
Got into the multiplayer beta for the second but that's as far as I went.  Did the story manage to become anything other then "use gun on alien, repeat"?  Did I miss out at all? 
 This one looks like they at least paid some attention to the character designs, so that's a plus

#43 Posted by Gabriel (4081 posts) -

I actually liked 2's story so I'm interested to see where it goes.

#44 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

Never cared for this series. Just found it bland and boring. Couldn't even finish Resistance 2. Only shooter on PS3 that I'll get pumped for is Killzone 3.

#45 Posted by Lazyaza (2212 posts) -

Never really cared much for the Resistance games, wish Insomniac would make something new and different.

#46 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

Never really liked Resistance...hope this is good.

" Another Halo clone/console FPS.... yay.... whatever. I'll be busy playing good first-person shooters on the PC, thank you. "
I hate when fanboys call this a Halo clone. How is this another Halo? Halo is another whole universe or something fighting aliens, with another whole story to it and like 600 years into the future from this game. Research this game and hopefully you're smart enough to see the difference because this is nowhere near Halo. 
 
But anyways, I don't like the way this is going. You can't just make an ending like that to R2 and start anew! That's a big ass cliffhanger! I need to know more! I don't want to play as some other turd! I want Nathan or at least the other guy at the end! Like start off R3 with the ending to R2 like God of War 3 did! 
#48 Edited by snattu (65 posts) -

Looks totally ace! The second game was a bit of a disappointment, so I hope this'll live up to the expectations.  
 
EDIT: And the first Resistance is one of the best console shooters around. It's still great fun in campaign co-op.  One of the best launch/near launch titles ever.

Sometimes companies "leak" images on purpose to create hype.  So their PR might not be all that annoyed.

Halo has 6 games, that's no trilogy. Resistance has 3 games, that's a trilogy. You can't say they're copying Halo. Tell me. Have you played Resistance 1 & 2?
