Get your Sharp Shooter ready!
Insomniac Games has finally confirmed that the 1.04 patch is going to be rolled out this weekend, fixing the ADS issues when using the PlayStation Move control method in Resistance 3. Aside from fixing the Move issues, the patch will also introduce a few balance fixes to matchmaking, as well other minor tweaks to better...
Introducing the Aldaros Plains, one of the first environments you'll explore on Planet Magnus in Insomniac's upcoming co-operative action adventure title, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. Here the rules of gravity are bent, resulting in some delightfully floaty shoot-outs. The final boss of the area is a menacing beast known as an...
We're getting quietly excited for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
But one question's been niggling our noggin since the game's announcement: why is Dr. Nefarious working with the heroes? "Ratchet, Clank and Qwark have arrived on the planet of Luminopolis so that now Galactic President Qwark can pick up an Intergalactic Tool of Justice Award...
Don't worry if you're an unsociable so-and-so -- you'll still be able to play Insomniac Game's co-operative platformer, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, in single-player if you prefer. The game will work with an AI partner helping you through co-operative puzzles and the like. It totally won't be the same as playing the game in four-player...
Resistance 3's barely had time to cool on store shelves, but already Insomniac Games has announced the title's first shot of DLC
Entitled the 'Survival Pack' — and due out on October 4th — the DLC adds the 'Invasion Mode' to Resistance 3's multiplayer for just $3.99. 'Invasion Mode' is a team-based resource management iteration of Resistance 3's...
Here's what we think.
Topping the brilliant Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time was always going to be a challenge for Insomniac Games. The developer's previous entry in its highly acclaimed platforming franchise neared perfection in terms of level variety, design, and combat. Short of sprucing up the graphics and adding more of the same, it's...
Due next month
Resistance 3 is finally at-hand, but developer Insomniac Games is already preparing follow-up content to extend your Resistance experience. On 4th October we'll see the Survival Pack launch for $3.99, introducing a new game type called Invasion, where you must hold nodes to earn points. You'll also get an XMB theme and four new skins,...
General Butler rallies his troops

In at number five...
Earlier in the year we took a look at our top-five most anticipated PlayStation games of Holiday 2011. Since the beginning of time (sort of!) developers and publishers have used the run-up to Christmas to release their very best games. This year the charts are set to be dominated by some monstrous titles, such as Uncharted 3:...

Not the best Resistance 3 commercial to kick-off Kevin Butler's tenure in SCEA's new Long Live Play initiative, but it gets the point across
Butler's on a horse, pleading with the resistance to use their PlayStation Move Sharp-Shooters against the Chimera. Catch the TV spot after the jump.

The score was composed by Boris Salchow and recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London. Hit the jump for a little more context about the process.
There have been plenty of live-action Resistance 3 adverts
The first batch were exclusively in live action. But that won't stop the marketing execs that be from peddling more live action Capelli to your screen. "Silence Before Storm" features train cars, the American midwest, Chimera, and the dystopian lifestyle we've come to expect of the...
Amazon has made the Resistance 3 Doomsday Edition available for pre-order
Bundled with the PlayStation Move navigation and motion peripherals, a Move sharp shooter peripheral, and of course the Resistance 3 game, the set will knock you back a clear $149.99. Though who wouldn't want all those goodies? You can check out the bundle here.
The wait for Resistance 3 is starting to become torturous
Ever since we put the lid on inFamous 2 in June, we've been waiting patiently for Resistance 3 to release. As big fans of Insomniac's alternate history series, a small glimpse of the beta did enough to confirm our anticipation, and we've been in hiding ever since. But for those who can't resist the opportunity to get some early access with..
Insomniac and Sony's released a second weapons trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One

Insomniac Games has taken to Twitter to confirm a new Resistance 3 single-player demo
The demo, unlike the beta, will support both Playstation Move and 3D play, two features absent from the beta that are set to be included in the final copy. The developer's Twitter page released a few further details. It will be available on the PSN...
Resistance 3 could be Insomniac's last title on the series
With the studio now preparing to go multiplatform, creative director Marcus Smith told Gaming Union that he "can definitely see" the Resistance franchise being handed off to another developer. "As far as Resistance being the flagship, I think Insomniac has always branched out," he said. "I loved the Spyro the Dragon..
The most striking thing about Resistance 3 is the way it looks
Insomniac's poured love into every facet of the game's presentation; from the surprisingly minimalistic hand-drawn menu back-drops, to the slick and industrial user-interface — the game's presentation is lavish. We'd read some criticism of the game's visuals prior to going hands-on...
In the latest Resistance 3 developer diary, Insomniac Games has offered a little more background on the human weapons from the game
While the likes of the Carbine and Marksman will be familiar to fans of the Resistance series, it's the introduction of the sledgehammer that comes as a complete surprise, allowing you to smash Chimeran brains all over the wall in a brand new way. Check out the new..
Insomniac's released a new trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
The trailer serves as an introduction to the game's co-operative premise, and, in traditional Ratchet & Clank fashion, is laugh-out-loud funny. Watch the trailer after the jump.
You may have noticed that the boxart for Resistance 3 is a bit unusual compared to everything else that's out there
The cover was crafted by Olly Moss, a British artist know for his simplistic style. In order to celebrate Resistance 3's imminent launch, Insomniac has released a new Resistance 3 trailer inspired by Moss' work. It looks like the opening credits of a James Bond movie, which makes it a..
Sony kicked off its PlayStation Vita software offering by announcing Resistance: Burning Skies, a brand-new title in Insomniac's first-person alternate history franchise developed by Nihilistic Software
The game puts players in control of Tom Riley, a New York fireman faced with the threat of Chimera's initial invasion on New York. Nihilistic showed off a lengthy demonstration during Sony's press..
Insomniac's publicly released a short behind-the-scenes documentary detailing Resistance 3's motion capture process
The footage first debuted at Comic-Con, but is now available for everybody to watch. It's worth a watch if you're curious about the creation of cut-scenes in games. We're suckers for these behind-the-scenes documentary videos, so this is right up our alley. We do wish developers would..
One of our favourite things about Resistance 3's multiplayer is the way it takes you all around the world
While the campaign is set in North America, the multiplayer is set in other areas of the world — giving a glimpse of human's struggle against the Chimeran forces across the globe. Insomniac's already revealed maps set in Wales, Africa and Colombia, and has today confirmed an arena set within..
Resistance 3 is definitely rolling out to stores next month — the game just went gold, and to get you even more amped-up for its release Sony has put together a brand new trailer.

After more than three years in development, Insomniac has announced that Resistance 3 has gone gold in time for its early September release
That means copies of the game are being pressed at manufacturing plants around the world as we type. The good news is that Insomniac's work is not done. Community manager James Stevenson noted on the PlayStation Blog that the developer will be keeping a keen..
We haven't really seen much of Resistance 3's story thus far
Yes, we know Capelli will feature as the game's protagonist, and that he's now married, but other than that we've only really seen gameplay slices from Insomniac's upcoming alternate-history first-person shooter. But this latest trailer uploaded by IGN details the back-story to Resistance 3's plot. With the war over and the Chimera..

Itching for Resistance 3? It's a month away — not long now. Want to see the game's Move controls in action before you can buy the game? Then scroll down, friends.

Sony's announced that the public beta for Insomniac's hotly anticipated Resistance 3 will kick-off in August
There are a lot of regional differences, so bare with us while we flesh out the details. In North America, those that pre-ordered SOCOM 4 will get first-access to the beta on August 4th. They will be followed by European PlayStation Plus subscribers on August 10th. Finally, North American..

James Stevenson has posted a short highlights video from the panel, featuring Creative Director Marcus Smith, Art Director Grant Hollis, Animation Director Kevin Grow, as well as voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman..
Sometimes we wake up in the middle of the night covered in a cold sweat, itching to play Resistance
Insomniac's first-person shooter series has been a staple of our PlaytStation 3 diet for years now. We ploughed hours into Fall Of Man, only to spend a similarly ridiculous amount of time with Resistance 2. But the latest title — Resistance 3 — has been a long-time coming, and that's left us..
Sony's put out a trailer for Resistance 3's bumper "Survivor Edition" collector's set
The pack is crammed with luxury goodies such as Resistance themed toy soldiers, Capelli's backpack and an SRPA branded hip-flask. Admittedly, much of the content included in this pack is needless tat — but it's dangerously tempting for Resistance fans like ourselves. There's more on Resistance 3's retail SKUs..
Resistance 3's art-direction is stupidly strong, is it not? The grainy, flickery effect in this Lab Video gives the footage an old-fashioned vibe
It's almost like you're watching a genuine 1950's science experiment. The weapon at the forefront of this trailer is the Mutator, a bioligical blaster that causes the Chimera to suddenly sprout fatal blisters. The animation on the Chimera is really rather..
We suspect if you're still undecided about Resistance 3, you might want to watch this half-hour video of the game's first level
If you've already decided to pick up Insomniac's latest shooter though, perhaps skip on the details of the embedded video because this is spoilerific. You've been warned. A bunch of previews for Resistance's opening seven levels broke overnight. They were super positive..
With the backlash of Resistance 2 still ringing in the ears of Insomniac Games, this must be quite a nervous time for the Burbank-based studio
High-profile members of the American press got access to the first seven stages of Resistance 3 this week, and have gone live with their impressions this evening. Thankfully, it looks like Insomniac's corrected the wrongs of its predecessor, with the..
Fight the opposition
If the third entry in the Killzone series wasn’t enough sci-fi shooter action to keep you busy, then the upcoming release of Insomniac’s Resistance 3 is shaping up to Move you back into action in just a few short months. We recently survived some hands-on time with the Resistance 3 demo and have returned to give you some...
One of the most exciting prospects about Resistance 3 is the return of Fall Of Man's "Weapon Wheel"
The feature, which was conspicuously absent in Resistance 2, resulted in a massive back-lash from fans of the series. The "Weapon Wheel" is such a key aspect to the Resistance series, that Insomniac's managed to base an entire developer diary on the inclusion of the feature. The "Full..
When it's released in September, Resistance 3 has a few tricks up its sleeve to entice PS3 owners to pick it up. As well as arriving with demos of Killzone 3, Motorstorm Apocalypse and Infamous 2 on the Blu-ray, letting you try some of Sony's biggest 2011 titles out before you buy, the game will also come with a fantastic-sounding...
If you're planning on picking up Resistance 3 in September -- and haven't got around to trying out Killzone 3, MotorStorm Apocalypse and inFamous 2 -- then you're in luck
Demos for all three titles will be included on Resistance 3's Blu-ray, according to information published by the BBFC. Resistance 3 itself received an 18 rating by the classification board, with the final product boasting over 90..
Sony's confirmed that Resistance 3 will be the first PS3 title to make use of a new "network pass program" designed to combat used sales
The PSN Pass — which emerged as part of a boxart leak yesterday — is very similar to the type of system employed by EA, Warner Bros and other third-party publishers. Sony's employed the use of online passes in...
Sony's voiced its support of EA's Online Pass system in the past, and now it looks like it's about to introduce the used game sale combating feature into Resistance 3
A hardware bundle packshot — featuring a 320GB PS3 and copy of Resistance 3 — advertises something called the "PSN Pass", which sounds a lot like a one-time use code designed to unlock the packaged game's multiplayer..
They both started in England
An epic game needs an epic soundtrack, and Insomniac believes the score for Resistance 3 fits the bill. Composed by long-time Insomniac collaborator Boris Salchow, who previously worked on Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time and Resistance 2, the score was recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, most famous for hosting...
Insomniac's released the first of a series of developer diaries for its upcoming first-person shooter, Resistance 3
The interviews have been shot in Insomniac's "war room", the location where the studio laid out the entirety of Resistance 3's campaign. This first diary details the Story and Environments of Resistance 3. The production is super high quality, so hats-off to the folks over..
There's a lot of unwarranted vitriol being thrown at Insomniac Games over its new multiplatform project
From where we're sitting, it's unfair. Insomniac has been one of the strongest supporters of the PlayStation platform for years, and none of that goodwill should evaporate just because it's going to release a game on the XBOX 360. After all, let's not forget Insomniac's new game is coming to the..
There's the charm of Ratchet & Clank mixed in with the grit of Resistance in Insomniac's first EA Games published project
Entitled Overstrike, the c0-op based title looks like a tongue-in-cheek take on the shooter genre — with chunky, cartoony characters teaming up in a colourful world. The game's reveal — shown moments ago at EA's E3 press conference — didn't include any gameplay, but..
Insomniac's released a short trailer for Resistance 3 ahead of tonight's big Sony PlayStation E3 press conference
The trailer focuses on protagonist Joseph Capelli, and sets Resistance 3's mood pretty well. Certainly looks like the franchise is making a return to its survival horror origins. Over on NeoGAF, Insomniac community manager James Stevenson revealed that Sony would be showing Resistance 3..
