Recent Articles: Resistance 3
Quite possibly coming as a surprise to no one, Sony has announced that the Resistance Collection will be coming this Winter. The collection will include the three main PlayStation 3 games in the series, all by Insomniac Games: Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, and Resistance 3. According to the PlayStation Blog, it will also come with “extra bonus DLC content for Resistance 2 and Resistance 3 so you can play with all of the best DLC from both games, including the Aftermath Pack and skin bundle from Resistance 2, and both the Brutality and Survival Packs from Resistance 3.” I don’t know if that means it comes with all of the available DLC or just “all of the best DLC,” whatever that is supposed to mean.
I’m actually surprised and a little disappointed that they aren’t including Resistance: Retribution in this collection. Much like the portable God of War games, I would have loved to play this PSP game on my big screen. A girl can dream, right? Speaking of dreams, here’s hoping that Resistance: Fall of Man gets trophy support in this collection. Because if not, what’s the point?
It’s another gorgeous day here, and I couldn’t be more grateful. We never really get spring or fall here in Philadelphia, so having these beautiful days in June is wonderful! Even after playing D&D last night and getting killed in the second round – no, like really killed, I went from five hit points to negative bloodied in one hit – it’s still a lovely day.
So, deals! What’s up for today? Well, Buy.com has what they refer to as “Killer Gaming Deals,” but these aren’t so great – the first one is Resistance 3 for $26.99, but that’s $19.99 on Amazon, and you can even get the Doomsday Edition there for $103.16. Stop being so lame, Buy.com!

Welcome to Warp Zoned’s first ever Golden Pixel Awards. Sit back and relax as we reward the best (and worst) games of 2011 with accolades based on their rather unique accomplishments.
The Apocalypse List
The bombs have fallen, the zombies have horded, food is scarce, and you’ve boarded yourself up in a bunker that’ll stand for a hundred years. What better way to spend your time in “The Vault” than by playing Warp Zoned’s favorite games from 2011? It doesn’t matter if you call it a “Top Ten List” or “Our Favorites From 2011,” but these are the games we plan to keep playing even if there was no game industry to keep making games. (more…)
Insomniac Games had a lot to live up to with the newest entry in the Resistance series. The ending of Resistance 2 was so devastating, so powerful, so moving, that it was impossible for me to predict what was going to come next. I imagined some sort of intense space opera moving from there, possibly where humans went out into space, searching the rift that was created at the end of the second game. I created whole storylines in my head, many of which involved Hale somehow still being alive. But what I didn’t imagine was the utter and complete disappointment that would be Resistance 3. (more…)
…and I feel fine! I mean, I can’t believe tomorrow is December already, but I’m not wigging out as hard as most people are. The crazy Christmas rush is about to begin! I’m glad I do most of my shopping online. I can’t cope with stores anymore!
Amazon has a crazy amount of deals going on, building up to the holiday. Today is the second day of their 19 Days of Deals, and it’s Action Games! They’ve got Dead Island and Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $29.99 ($19.99 on PC), Rage and Resistance 3 for $39.99, and BioShock 2 and Duke Nukem Forever for $9.99. There’s loads more, so check it out!
Boom! After taking the month of August off thanks to the NFL lockout, the debut of Madden NFL 12 has reclaimed its rightful spot at the top of The NPD Groups’s monthly rankings.
The football sim was joined at the top of the charts by other big new releases: Gears of War 3 chainsawed the second spot and Deep Silver’s Dead Island landed at #3 (behold the power of hype, folks). EA Sports claimed the rest of the top five with FIFA Soccer 12 at #4 and NHL 12 a spot below. Resistance 3 at #7 and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine at #10 round out the bevy of new releases on this NPD list.
Holdovers from previous months include Deus Ex: Human Revolution (#6), Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (#8) and Call of Duty: Black Ops (#9).
The complete top ten can be found after the break. (more…)
It’s yet another rainy day here in Philadelphia, and I’m drooling on my copy of Resistance 3 that I finally picked up. What better way to spend a rainy day than by killing chimera? I may even wear the necklace I got for pre-ordering it at GameStop. Hellz yeah!
Amazon’s Deal of the Day in video games today is Bejeweled Twist by PopCap Games. This Nintendo DS game is on sale for $12.99, and boasts five game modes – “Classic, Blitz, Challenge, Zen and the new 2-player, ad-hoc wireless.” If our editor John Scalzo doesn’t already own this, I’m sure he’s going to buy it today!
The calendar has turned over to September and we know what that means… the stingy Summer of games is over and the Fall release rush is finally here! This week’s new release slate blows away almost everything we’ve received in the last three months. There’s truly something for everybody:
- Sony finishes the fight with the Chimera in Resistance 3 (PS3).
- Zombies invade a tropical paradise in the super-hyped Dead Island (PC, PS3, Xbox 360).
- Star Fox 64 3D, one of the greatest space shooters of all time, comes to the 3DS.
- The Wheelman returns for another getaway in Driver: San Francisco (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360).
- Those wacky guys at NIS America return to the wacky world of Disgaea in Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten (PS3)
- Sega’s non-conventional Kinect title Rise of Nightmares slices and dices store shelves.
- And finally, THQ twists the Warhammer license into an action shooter with Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (PC, PS3, Xbox 360).
