Dear Nihilistic:
I bought Resistance and I was very disapointed with you.
Now I paid 50bucks as a token of faith in your Cod thing.... I will play it tonight, Nihilistic... and for your own good, I hope it is at least decent. Do not need to be the best game ever... it need to be only decent....

I doubt it.

The first review gave it a 4/10.

Hopefully the online is completely broken like it was for R:BS....Even after a patch it was still buggy, Unreliable and unbalanced.

Finally got my hand son the Planets Under Attack demo, but don't think I'll b e buying it for $15 after getting When Vikings Attack for $7 last week.

Good to see Crackle getting it's own "app" after I've been watching it for years via the web browser link. Hopefully the resolution is decent as it sucked before. I just signed up for a free month of Hulu Plus and the HD picture really is as good as cable. FYI - Crackle is free b/c has it commercials. I don't know why Hulu Plus has so many commercials, 3 every break, so I'll cancel when my free month is over.

The game doesnt deserve a 4... but a 7 would be too high.
There´s some good points in the game, but ultimately... it is a complete mess!

Well... I did my part supporting vita till now... I am still waiting for Teraway and KZ... but really... I am kinda worried.
