I got a chance to play Resistance 3 at Sony's E3 2011 booth, here's my take.
FnJimmy and I were waiting in line to play some Resistance 3 at Sony's booth. We thought we were going to play some multiplayer. Turns out we were playing the campaign even though they had the TVs set up side by side like the do for all their MP demos (like Uncharted and Starhawk). The Sony rep points me at the second TV in the row, lucky me, I got the one with 3D enabled. I put the goggles on over my glasses, not particularly comfortable, but not too bad until I also try to put the headphones on, now I've got three things on my ears.
Anyway the game controlled and felt like I expected, complete with the Sony R1 instead of trigger to fire that I've come to hate and expect in every exclusive PS3 game. (Seriously, WTF?)
I don't know if something was wrong with the 3D goggles (low battery?) or if all the E3 lights and flashes were interfering with the signal, but I had a bunch of cross talk, to the point that I had two reticules to aim through which obviously made targeting a bit of a trick. I wasn't sure if I should aim at the left, right, or split the difference. By the end of the demo... well I didn't stay for the end of the demo, I just quit after about 5 minutes as I did not want to spend the rest of my day at E3 with a splitting (see what I did there) headache.
Resistance seems like an above-average FPS in a market flooded with them, so I'm not super hyped about it (especially given the PS3 exclusive controls, I like my FPS on the 360). I'm totally not excited for 3D to come to my house any time soon.
Resistance 3 ships September 6, 2011 for the PS3.
Missed the show? Come here to check out the highlights!
You missed the coverage? Don't worry Jimmy! Gouki's got you covered! He's a quick run down of Sony's Press Conference! Check it out!
Sony starts off with Jack Tretton apologizes with the network hack. It's a gracious way to start off the press show. Ok, let's see some games!
They started off with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception gameplay footage. It looks great and this story will a great one to handle.
Then they showed off Resistance 3. The HUD, looks like Resistance 1, meaning no regeneration health. And Resistance 3 is getting a bundle! Dubbed The Doomsday Edition, it'll included the sharpshooter, PS Eye, game, wand and nunchuck, all for $150. Deal?Read full story...
Campaign played. Not multiplayer. wtf.
The cool thing about this video is that is the actual Sony booth behind me. Otherwise, I liked the first resistance's, I will like this one too.

This new video has got me sold already...
Resistance 3 has been buzzing around not getting my attention, this latest multiplayer interview video has finally caught me. Marcus Smith, creative director gives us the lowdown on multiplayer and a little info on how classes and abilities work. Most important BadAssNice footage is shown. Gameplay looks alittle similiar to Killzone 3 eh? ;)

What could be better than two drunk Jimmys trying to play Resistance 3 on hard? Here's over 50 minutes of our journey through the Insomniac's third installment of this FPS. Don't be a Jimmy!
Resistance 3 has been out for a few weeks now and I want to reassure all of you, Team Gouki has played this game. BatRastered and I -of course- have a completely different opinion on this game as to FnJimmy. You're gonna see the GVR soon enough. For now though, you can watch BatRastered and I stumble through one of the final levels of Resistance 3. A Playstation 3 Exclusive! Straight Face.
