We can't wait for Resistance 3 . It's really the only reason we plan to tune into the Spike VGAs this weekend.
In the meantime, Insomniac Creative Director Marcus Smith has loaded up the PlayStation Blog with a "story so far" update that tells you everything you need to know about the new plot's background. There are some R2 spoilers – if you care – so fair warning. They tell you all about the main character, Joseph Capelli, who is hiding from the invading hordes with his wife, Susan, and his son, Jack, along with other survivors in the town of Haven, Oklahoma. It's not about fighting, anymore; it's about staying in the shadows and surviving. But when he's given the opportunity to do something about the Chimera, he strikes off across the country, heading for New York City…that ought to be one hell of a cross-country trek. The atmosphere is always downright awesome in these games, so we're expecting nothing less than brilliance in that respect.
You can also learn about how the Chimera now hunt humans with death squads, check out the new screenshots, and hit the link for that live action GamesCom trailer, which you've probably already seen many times. From a "treacherous boat journey" to weapon information (the Bullseye is back and the Marksman has been overhauled again), to enemy details to multiplayer stuff, it's a big update well worth reading. Hey, who likes upgradeable weapons? This guy.
