Resistance 3's boat level. Talk about badly-designed encounters. True, it's the first time you really get to crank out the game's shotgun, but on the hardest difficulty, running around that tiny excuse for a seaworthy vessel practically eating the contents of the ammo chest and wall-mounted health pack on a second-by-second basis made it the most frustrating fights for me.

A November 11 breach of Resistance's official web site, including its forums, did not serve malware to visitors as some had alleged, Sony told Kotaku on Friday.

The first trailer I ever saw for Resistance 3 was live-action. The most recent one I've seen is all stylish artwork inspired by the designs of artist Olly Moss. I usually like to see gameplay in video game trailers, but I'll make exceptions for trailers this cool.
At this year's E3 expo, Sony unveiled the PlayStation 3's "official 3D Display", a stereoscopic 3D package that packed in one monitor, one copy of Insomniac Games' Resistance 3, one HDMI cable and one pair of 3D glasses for $US500. Things have changed.
The early access part of the beta for Sony's biggest exclusive first-person shooter of the holiday, Resistance 3, kicks off a week from today, on August 4.

Insomniac Games has launched the beta for a web-based strategy game called Global Resistance, described as a "massive strategy game", featuring all players battling on the same global map in a game offering crossover features with the upcoming console title.
