Resistance 3: “Full Circle” Dev Diary

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Jul 12, 2011 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

We’re excited to bring you the latest dev diary in the Resistance 3 PlayStation Blog Dev Diary series. This one focuses on bringing back some of the classic Resistance: Fall of Man gameplay like the weapon wheel and the great heritage that Ratchet & Clank has provided the Resistance franchise. If you missed out on the previous dev diaries, you can catch up with these two links here and here.

There is a ton of exciting news about Resistance 3 these days. You hopefully saw all of the preview coverage that hit yesterday. There’s much more to come, as next week, we will be staging a Resistance 3 panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 21st at 5 p.m. in Room 7AB.

”Go behind the scenes with Marcus Smith (Creative Director), Kevin Grow (Animation Director), Grant Hollis (Art Director), and voice actors Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman (Charlie Tent) from the cast and discover the secrets behind Insomniac’s vision of a post-apocalyptic 50’s era. Attendees will be able to ask their burning questions in an exclusive Q&A session and might – just might – get a first look at a brand-new way for you to resist with your friends.”

Can’t make it to Comic-Con? Don’t fret, Geoff Keighley and the gang at Gametrailers TV will be bringing you tons of new Resistance 3 content with a full episode shot on location at Insomniac’s Burbank studio on the night of Thursday, July 21st on Spike TV. We’re stoked to show you brand new single-player gameplay, a brand new multiplayer objective mode, as well as brand new interviews with the team!

That’s all for now – we’ve got tons to come, so to keep up with the latest news and footage on Resistance 3, be sure to follow Insomniac Games on Twitter, Like us on Facebook, or join the conversation on MyResistance.Net.

Thank you for not following all the other military shooters out there and returning the series to its roots. I was a bit disappointed by some of the limitations in 2, and I’m glad the series didn’t continue in that direction.

@oly1kenobi as long as u have the pass activated on ur PS3 u can login to any account and still play.
Good stuff cant wait for the game… Did this video hint at something?

@oly1kenobi: You do know that if the online pass is activated in a console, you can have unlimited accounts that can play that copy of game online, right? Unless of course your son owns a second PS3 in which case you have to redownload the online pass in his account via “Download List”.

Oh and @WelmoscaBR: Online pass will come with the game, same as almost every game these days come with an online pass.

Question…Why does Sony continue to shoot itself in the foot? (Not literally)

P.S. I will be buying games new anyway, (Not R3 because I haven’t played the first two) so it doesn’t really affect me I am just curious. Sony seems to want to kick people over to the Xbox.

Awesome video, thanks for the return of the weapon wheel.

@1[oly1kenobi]
I agree with him Online Pass=Horrilbe. I dont know if Im going to buy it now, My little brother and I love to play online games. But now only one of us can play it online because of this horrible idea and I sure in hell am not going to pay another Ten or Twenty dollars for something that should be free to anyone who purchased the game. Not even Bobby Kotick stooped that low yet.

EVIDENTLY, oly1kenobi, you only heard things. A PS PASS COMES WITH EVERY NEW RESISTANCE THREE THAT IS SOLD. NOW JUST BUY THE NE ONE. I DONT KNOW IF ANY ONE REMEBERS THIS BUT SOME NES AND SNES GAMES SOMETIMES COST 100$. NOW WITH GAME DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN UPWARDS OF OVER 50 MILLION DOLLARS A PIECE, 60 ISNT THAT BAD. SO QUIT YOUR WHINING AND SUPPORT YOUR FAVORITE GAME AND INDUSTRY BY BUYING GAMES NEW SO THAT WE CAN GET MORE OF THE AWESOME THAT WE HAVE COME TO KNOW IN LOVE. IN ORDER TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH GAMING NEWS JUST GO TO IGN.COM. LONG LIVE PLAYSTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

USED GAME SHOULDNT BE THE SAME QUALITY AS NEW GAMES. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE THINK THAT. ITS RIDICULOUS. JUST SUPPORT YOUR FAVORITE GAME DEVELOPER AND GAME BY BUYING IT NEW. I MEAN IF CALL OF DUTY DIDNT SELL ENOUGH TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE. WE ALL WOULD BE PRETTY PISSED!!!!! SO JUST STOP TRYING TO CHEAP OUT ON GAME DEVELOPERS AND HELP THEM OUT. OR WAIT TIL THE PRICE DROPS AND BUY IT NEW THEN. GO TO IGN.COM TO GET ALL INFORMATION ON EVERYTHING VIDEO GAMES. LONG LIVE PLAYSTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you just spam advert for IGN? Also I agree with buying games new.[Buying used only saves you like 2-5 dollars whats the point.] But the pass is still lame.

I will NOT be buying this game because of the PSN Pass. I was moderately interested in this game, not anymore.

Its good to hear that it will get Resistance1 Gameplay .. Resistance1 is way better than 2, I’m glad to see Resistance3 is changing to the best, and the weapons and Multiplayer looks so awesome .. Can’t wait foe the game AND te beta .. And the PSN Pass Will Not Affect Me, I Don’t Buy Used Games! And Thanks James!

ALSO…i’m going to comic-con and 99% sure i’m going to be attending the panel. but you know what would make it 100%? some swag. any news on if they’re giving out freebies at the panel (like infamous did last year)?

No im not but i love their site and how they tell the objective point of view of games. People need to start caring for the developers these days. We just cant treat a 60 dollar game like an iPhone app. These people spend years behind a desk and typing code, just to get these games right. the least we can do is to spend money on their new game.When Gamestop sells you a used game they dont pay anything to the developer or publisher, and after years of trying on behalf of the video game industry. Gamestop refuses to cooperate and give them some profit from used games that the developers deserve. So dont blame Sony or Insomniac, BLAME GAMESTOP. That why we hear about all of these game development studios shutting down and people losing their jobs in this industry.

@ Insomniac
the game looks amazing, visually stuning, looks fun as heck. cant wait

@ Sony
way to cheap shot the studio that decided to go multiplat with the whole PSN PASS bs. why dont put that pass on Uncharted 3 and put the bad rep on your own 1st party studio.

Insomniac deserves better than this bad press about the stupid PSN PASS

Hey guys looks great, Ill be picking up a copy day one for your dedicated to the Resistance series and Playstation fans around the world. Thanks for a fantastic series! As for those of you that are complaining about the pass, you have no one to blame but yourselves. If this generations of “gamers” was not so fascinated with multiplayer these games would cost much less to make and manage after the release. It’s because the mind set that mutilplayer is the bread and butter of a gaming experience that developers and even a publisher is looking to make sure they get a cut of that used game you buy. If you buy the game new you don’t have a problem. It’s called smart business. You will always have true gamers that are loyal Sony. I know ill be laughing when I am enjoying the great gaming experiences that Playstation has always delivered.

It probably will have it…but here’s a better idea, why include the Pass at all? NO game should have this stupid pass.

I buy my games new, but I want to play with EVERYONE that owns the game. Plus I don’t wan to input a code to access multiplayer, I don’t want it on my download list, and we all know what happened with Mortal Kombat and Portal when the PSN went down and we couldn’t activate online/steam.

I love Insomniac and can’t wait for R3! That’s why I’m going to buy the game new, but not use the free PSN Pass, and pay for it instead. Plus, I got some cash to spare for things I enjoy on a daily basis!

+ zombie9 on July 12th, 2011 at 10:51 am said:

@DEATH-2_XBOX3795 LOL TOOL :)
PSN PASS is another way to charge for PSN. And some how Insomniac games thinks this is OK just because EA does it.
I’m glad I don’t work for EA. And I’m even gladder that I don’t buy EA games any more. no R3 for me sorry.

A fool and his money.

If you’re going to require a Pass/payment for online, you shouldn’t require online trophies towards platinum trophies.

the devs say they are goin to the roots with sum elements from R:FoM but idk if this game will be good cuz i played R2 & it was a fail to me compared to R:FoM. Maybe we’ll see in the beta next month

You guys just dont get that it takes in upwards of 50 million dollars to make a game these days. And if they dont make enough money, their publisher will either shut them down or will simply just not publish games anymore

I pity those fools like zombie9, oly1kenobi, NiteVisions etc. for not researching just a tiny bit on the PSN PASS
I can’t believe how stupid a person can be…..Try to listen to DEATH-2_XBOX3795 or shagg_187
Does the new game come with a pass? Of course it does! That the freaking point of stopping the used games industry. Does it work on multiple accounts on the same system? YES it does!
But you know what? Screw you guys and your foolishness. We will enjoy a great game.
You obviously wasn’t going to buy it anyways, because if you were, then you would have bought it!

To the people crying about the PSN PASS all of EA games now have an online pass too. I’ve bought 3 games that needed passes and because i buy my games new it didn’t bother me. Only gamefly users and those that buy used games are complaining about PSN PASS.

Resistance 3 = 1st day buy. I going to go pre order at amazon right now. See you guys online!

I just hate EA and the bad business decision. to charge the FAN to play games online. PSN is suppose to be FREE. not $10 a game.

+ skynidas on July 12th, 2011 at 11:11 am said:

God, a lot of people complaining in here. I’m sure that this game will be great, and the PSN Pass thing…That was bound to happen, in like a year all publishers will embrace this idea, it’s inevitable. Just buy your games new, and if you don’t have the money wait some months for the price to drop.

Sony and other publishers want to make money, this is a business and that’ the whole point of it, get money and we really can’t go against Sony about this one because at least they haven’t gone down the “casual” road like other guys in the industry, they still support the hardcore gamers, so yeah, don’t complain about this PSN Pass because it will happen on all games, you will see.

@DEATH-2_XBOX3795 – I appreciate you enthusiasm but you gotta take a breath. Yeah I know its frustrating reading comments that are blatant trolling, be it outright, stealth, apologetic etc etc etc. You kinda loosing your cool and going all cappatycap doesn’t do anything other than regress and makes you seem like you’re a prime candidate to pick up a box.

As for the game, looks fantastic. I will be honest and say that I’ve followed but never played the first two, which I will be picking up, and playing before 3 :). Some news on a US/CDN CE would be nice as someone upstairs mentioned.

As for the pass. Don’t bother me, all exclusives are bought brand new, pre owned is reserved for the multi platform, unless of course the developer gives me reason to smile (Move support for Bioshock:Infinate).

Cheers.

A online pass is for only if buy the games are bought used. Its not pass made by psn it made from the devs of the games to gamers who buy the game used not new.

i f your brother sister wants to play the game and go line they can its not issue to start a second campaign or online play onthe same console with the same online pass. how so. so me how. ?? You dont need second online pass.. These rumors like these ones are striaght up lies

DOnt listen to psn pass strike trash becuase it a lie. buy the game new ..no issue,. if you buy it used then you will have to buy online pass from the devs, not psn. Psn doesnt make online passes the devs of games do.

Psn is free to play online buy a psn game and tell me if has a online pass ,. it will not and cannot becuase psn is free to play online. Only devs of games give online passes for used game nevr new games

Online passes suck, I know why the publishers do it. However if you look at EA, they still offer a one week trial… So for the people that rent games are fine.

As for game stop, I will always buy new over used… Most of the time. I prefer to pay the 5 dollars more just for a nice case and new instruction book. Plus why pay 54.99 for a used copy and even more for online pass.

I get upset when games have day one dlc or have dlc announced before the game is out. Give me a complete game you unethical bastards. So most games are more then the 60 bucks. Take MK, planned characters are 5 bucks! This is garbage.

I don’t want dlc, I want expansion packs.

@ DEATH-2_XBOX3795

Way to suck up to these greedy companies, they could care less about you or me, most of the time, the companies make much more then what they paid to make the game, and once someone has bought the new version of the game, the companies made the money for that game, they shouldn’t be charging more.
