Daniel Brooke, online producer at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, has said in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK that they have no definite plans to carry on the Resistance franchise.
Sony is determined to prove to the world that just because PS Vita is small, it doesn’t mean it can’t offer those big game experiences. This not only applies to controls, visuals and gameplay; sound also has a huge part to play.
PS3 Attitude caught up with Kevin Riepl and Jason Graves, composers on Resistance: Burning Skies, to discuss their approach to composing a score for a handheld game that befits a AAA PS3 blockbuster.
We have two copies of the Resistance 3 Original Soundtrack here at Attitude Towers, courtesy of Sumthing Else Music Works, and we want to pass them on to two lucky readers.
We’ve already established that Resistance 3 has a superb singleplayer campaign, but, once it’s over, realistically you’ll be spending most of your time with the game’s multiplayer modes. Since the first game’s release in 2006, the Resistance series has been at the forefront of online multiplayer experiences on PlayStation 3, so how does Resistance 3 compare?
When it comes to exclusive franchises on the PlayStation 3, everyone has their favourites, but only one can claim to have been there from day one – Resistance. If you purchased a PS3 in the early days, the chances are you also bought Resistance: Fall of Man, Insomniac’s first venture into the next-generation, and the stand-out title during the console’s slow start.
Two years later, this was followed up by Resistance 2, which was equally well received by critics, but greeted with disdain by many fans, due to Insomniac’s change of direction with the series, and the toning down of aspects that made the first game unique. So, does Resistance 3 stand tall as its own game or descend into the bottomless pit of ‘me too’ shooters?
Boris Salchow, composer of Resistance 3, reveals the secrets behind making a stunning soundtrack in this exclusive interview with PS3 Attitude.
Resistance 3 is the latest in a string of successful projects with Insomniac Games for Salchow, which also includes Resistance 2 and Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time. He also provided additional music and co-produced on Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2.
Away from games, Salchow has worked on the feature films 80 Minutes, Prom Night, Elsewhere and Der Himmel Hat Vier Ecken, as well as commercials for Audi, Lamborghini and Adidas.
After his success delivering the epic score for Insomniac Games’ Resistance 2, Boris Salchow, an L.A based film composer is returning for the third game in the series. He will be recording at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios.
Resistance 3 will focus on a far darker aesthetic to reflect the increased threat mankind faces from the invading Chimera, whilst continuing to represent the alternate 1950s setting that players will be accustomed to.
As far as exclusive first-person shooter experiences go there are two marquee franchises: Resistance and Killzone. Both of which have provided PS3 gamers with distinct and memorable games.
Later this year Resistance fans are set to yet again polish off some deserving Chimerans in Resistance 3. Take a look at the game’s visuals with these newly released screenshots.
Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.
In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.
So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?
It’s been a month of drinking, eating, and spending time with loved ones, and a month for announcements – big announcements. The following games were unveiled: Uncharted 3, The Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, SSX Deadly Descents, and a new Tomb Raider; it is a very impressive list. We also learned more about some of 2011’s most exciting games: Homefront, DiRT 3, L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City, Resistance 3 and Bulletstorm.
There weren’t many new releases, but the Vietnam expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was a highlight. We also got some demos – and yes, a demo can be a highlight, but only just. Here is the re-cap of the month…
A new trailer for Resistance 3 was shown at the VGAs and it looks awesome. There’s actual gameplay, too!
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed the first thirty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing the next ten.
Resistance 3 is real. Are you surprised?
David Kaye, the voice of Clank, has revealed that he is currently working on new Ratchet & Clank content.
It follows on from last week’s story, that Insomniac Games, were on the verge of unveiling a new game; could Ratchet & Clank be that game?
Welcome to yet another rip-roaring edition of PS3 Attitude’s regular ‘Deals of the Week’.
Every week we bring you 4 suggestions of games that you should buy for the weekend and today is no different, as we up our running total to 33 great deals and counting.
Don’t think for a minute that we are running out of steam though. Read on for 2 deals to scare you witless, and a great price on a brand new game that may just take you back to your childhood…
Mutinies. Hardware wars. Dying consoles. Tax laws. A month in the games industry can cover a variety of headline-catching topics, but these should never steal the attention away from the true stars of the industry – the games.
A survey sent to PlayStation owners has fueled speculation that Resistance 3 is on the way. The survey asks interviewees if they believe that Resistance 3 is in development, and if so how likely they would be to buy it.
There’s a certain tension in the air here at Attitude Towers. The normally carefree (or slightly bizarre in the case of Danny_D) banter has been replaced by hushed, worried whispers.
You see, there are Kittens in the Tower today. This generally wouldn’t be any cause for concern – kittens are cute right?
But these kittens have a penchant for shooting, and routinely sharpen their claws – step forward the Kamikaze Kittens.
We are big fans of Resistance 2, and believe it is a step in the right direction for the franchise.
But some hardcore fans of the first game were left angry and disappointed with the sequel that brought a lot of change.
