The Resistance series is- to say the least- unremarkable. While it does provide us with games that are always a blast to play through, Resistance games have never been met with universal acclaim or mind-boggling reception. With each next installment, though, the Resistance franchise just seems to get better and better. Resistance 2 improved vastly upon the best-selling Resistance: Fall of Man, while Resistance: Retribution, in spite of being the game that was on the least powerful system, provided everything a PSP shooter needed to have to be respectfully good.
But in spite of the consistent rise in quality, the Resistance franchise isn’t half as successful or iconic as some of the other franchises that were incepted this generation- Gears of War, Bioshock, Mass Effect and the like. Even Sony’s own first-person shooter, released back in 09, Killzone 2, was much more polished and refined than any of the Resistance titles released till yet.
But just wait- stop. A franchise that has been so good consistently has to have a good day at the office, doesn’t it? Especially considering the fact that it comes from the developers of the superb Ratchet and Clank games, the next installment in this under appreciated franchise, Resistance 3, has to be the one that will engrave the name of Resistance into the hearts of all contemporary gamers- and others as well.
But what can Resistance 3 do that other shooters haven’t? There is practically nothing left in the genre that hasn’t already been done before. Well, here is what we expect the third installment in the canon franchise of Resistance series to be. We hope you like our article.

The Characters

Resistance has always had a great caste of characters, and some stand out amongst all, and quite surprisingly, prove to be some of the best characters one can ever come across in a game. Resistance 3 being the final chapter in this epic trilogy, the character caste will have to be gigantic, memorable, and will have to satisfy the needs and the demands of the gamer. Our first demand?

James Grayson

“James Grayson- one. Whatever the hell you are- nil,” says Grayson after blowing up a gigantic mech unit. Grayson is cool. He’s badass, he’s a gun for hire, he’s a killing machine. He wants revenge. He kills every alien he sees, and he blows up entire buildings. He is the modern form of Kratos. A quest for revenge made him do stuff and tread paths no one would dare step on. Yet Grayson had the ability, the attitude, the sheer brute power and the wits to fight his way through hordes upon hordes of strange looking aliens (well, they always look strange, but never this strange).
However, the ending of Resistance: Retribution, the brilliant third person shooter on the PSP, left it quite unclear as to what had finally happened with Grayson. After having been declared “Missing In Action” during a mission to Russia, the last scene of R:R showed James Grayson standing in front of a cathedral, with his eyes glowing yellow, hinting that he too, like Nathan Hale, the main protagonist of the Resistance series, had been infected by the Chimera virus.
The question: will Grayson return in Resistance 3? We say he will, and he will play a negative role, but he will not be with the Chimeran forces. He will be in the no man’s land, interrupting in the Resistance’s missions, for his own selfish purposes- i.e blowing up conversion centers, killing Chimera etc. And we think he will be playable, not just an NPC. Of course, he will have improved, boosted powers, what with him having been infected, which means- no health packs (yay!/no!)!

Fyodor Malikov

I know, the great Russian mind is dead, but just think a second- we don’t know that. It was found in Malikov’s journal that he will kill himself, we were never shown his death. This could still mean we are yet to see the last of him. What could his role be? Well, for one, he can create a proper anti-Chimera serum which actually works and doesn’t completely backfire. Other than that? Maybe he can help bring Hale back, so that we don’t have to bear with Capelli, who was recently announced to be the new protagonist of Resistance 3,  for the entire length of the game (he was kind of a prick in R2). We just hope he returns, we want more of Dr. Malikov.

And of course, Nathan Hale

The ending of Resistance 2 left our jaws dropped open (shuts mouth), and it was all because of Hale- Nathan Hale. You know like Bond- James Bond. Yes, Capelli killed Hale at the end of Res2 (that bastard!), but come on, Nathan Hale- we haven’t seen the last of him. Yet. Being the guy that he is, I’m pretty sure he’ll be one of the leading characters in Resistance 3, though I’m not entirely sure he’ll be one of the good guys. If- if– Dr Malikov is still alive, he may create a serum that cures the virus that has infected Hale, which means, he’ll be a good guy again. Either way, I want Nathan Hale as a playable charatcer, and yes, I want him to retain his yellow eyes, no matter where his loyalties lie.


Daedalus, probably one of the best antagonists one can ever come across in any shooter. We want him to return, but you know what would be a twist? If he returns as Private Jordan Adam Sheppard, in human form, and as one of our own kind, fighting against the Chimeran invasion. Of course, Sheppard would have his own personal errands, like avenging his horrible transformation, i.e finding Malikov and killing him (assuming he is still alive, of course). But even if he doesn’t return as a human, he could still just return, even if for a few minutes- because that would be a huge treat to all Resistance fans.

  • wow… have you ever played any game in the series? clearly you are just pretending to know how the story will go in resistance 3, and have the audacity to call your article “everything you need to know” you dont know shit so stfu you dumbass… all the latest magazines on resistance have info that your article clearly contradicts! Resistance sold more than Killzone 2 and has a larger fanbase… you are out of your league and pretending to be in the know and its laughable…you should stick to gears of war whicth is better than resistance for its story…(not) and multiplayer (huh, gears is unplayable). son… play a game before you open your mouth and show yourself as the fool you are…

      I think so you have a bit of misassumption about the article. Throughout the article, the author does not blow the lid off of R3. This article is based on assumptions and that’s what everyone of us does when a new game is around a corner.

      Resistance 1 was a great game. We at GB are big fans of the game but everyone including you will agree that the first game was not a ps3 bench mark. R2 did that in 2008 and retribution on the psp.

      Again, I will say, we are not claiming things, we are assuming and expecting things from R3.


  • Lazer beam eyes? what is this x-men? stupid idea. The blast cannon you explain is very similar to the secondary fire of the pulse cannon, and there was a flame fucking thrower in RFOM. You really need to rethink your ideas and actually play the games. I agree, worst article ever. Go read the newest GI.

  • Do everyone a favor a shut this shitty website down.

    You guys never break any news and then I click on an N4G article that I think will give me some real info only to see it’s Gaming Bolt.

    This article is bullshit, provides no info and you guys will look like assholes when the game is released and none of this is true.

    Nathan Hale will be dead for real? You mean a gunshot to the head didn’t do it the first time? The info Insomoniac already revealed makes it pretty clear Hale is done.

      My friend you should check our home page or atleast check our profile at n4g at how many breaking news we are posting a day. I agree that we are not the top site in the world for news, but definitely we are not shitty.


  • @Rashid Resistance was the best PS3 launch title.

    • Rashid Sayed

      We do not disagree with that. But being a launch title it never really utilized the PlayStation 3’s power. It was not a bench mark setter for me. Games like Resistance 2, Uncharted 2 and MGS4 later on did that but being a launch I personally feel it was a great game but not legendary.

  • Satherckz

    Damn, R3 looks amazing, the PS3 Exclusive games are getting too high!

    • Rashid Sayed

      It sure does.

    • tareq salah

      i agree the first picture looks astonishing. only if hale was still alive.

  • Just an fyi. This article is complete garbage. Read GameInformer folks, not this stupid shit.

    • Rashid Sayed

      The article is an assumption my friend.

  • rak33n

    2011 year of ps3 !!!!

  • tareq salah

    the death of hale was shocking to me. it actually killed m interest in res 3. so i will wait and see the review. but i loved hale as the main guy. too early to let go
