This review reminded me of why I started watching this series in the first place

This was the best episode I've watched in a long time, bravo yahtzee! It was Hillarious!

"What did you do with the rest of the body Insomiac!?!" Oh God...I miss episodes like this he actually has a great one liner.

Great review, this was one of my favorites. Sounds like a decent game too, maybe I'll end up trying it.

The multiplayer beta... apparently didn't offer a fair representation of the single-player experience. What a surprise!

It is currently 12:07AM here in Dublin. I've had a long day of college and work but I stayed up to check what I missed. This was a great decision because it meant that I got to see my favorite episode of Zero Punctuation yet. The last spoken line had me in stitches.

Versuvius:
Fucking typical. A shooter with all of the mechanics i liked that were lost are back but only because Half Life got raped in the shower and woke up in a bathtub full of ice missing all of it's internal organs. I still might buy it though. Beggars can't be choosers when something passably different pops up and wiggles it's juicy buns in my face.

I totally read this in Yahtzee's voice. Are you perhaps channeling him?

I've been semi-interested in playing this. Not enough to actually buy a PS3, mind you, but still would like to play it. Thank goodness a friend has a PS3. Mayhaps I can talk her into buying this game. A game that is "clearly her kind of game" and should "buy it immediately".

LordJiro:
Don't be silly, Yahtzee, Insomniac isn't COMPLETELY ripping off Valve. They can count to three, for one.

Ho ho, I see what you did there.

The last part was pretty funny but my favorite part was the line reading he gave about Sony.

The Resistance series is part of my backlog of games I have to finish. Resistance 2 had a very fun Team Fortress ripoff that had a small story arc that somewhat changed when replayed, it was my favorite part of that game.

Sudenak:
Damn. Had my hopes up that a game was finally pushing ahead with nice game mechanics, only to learn that it's basically ripping off HL2. Hopefully it's just a massive coincidence and we'll once more see an FPS that doesn't require you to suck your thumb in a corner.

Until then, I'll cling to my Heretic and Hexen and gaze longingly at next-gen graphics.

That is just a running joke for his review. They had been applying these mechanics in Ratchet & Clank long before HL2. Ratchet and Clank fighting is just stylised differently but the non-regenerating health, the copious quantities of weapons and weird guns are all there.

So next time check if the developers have been designing their games that way for the past 9 years before you start giving them crap.

He didn't even mention the awesome co-op.

Yahtzee? Flat-out liking a modern-day FPS? The one that was essentially the starting gun for FPS Season 2011 no less? If I actually had a PS3, I'd buy this game just to see if the game dispenses some form of drug directly into the pleasure center of your brain.

I played the first resistance lost interest. And now I am intrigued. I want to find out where they put the body!

A game that's basically a newer Half-Life 2? Glad I went with the PS3!

That review literally made me burst out laughing to the extent it attracted everyone in the house to go have a looksie. Damn Yahtzee, yo funny!

This is probably my favorite review of all time.

The only Play station franchise that actually interests me.

I won't buy it unless somehow I have prolonged access to a PS3 but it looks fun.

I don't care if it ripped off HL2 or not. A FPS game that isn't cover based, no regenerating health, and no weapon limits? I'll buy it.

I enjoyed this one enough to comment. THE HORROR

In anycase, I don't know if I want to jump right into Resistance 3 when I haven't played any of the other games but I consider this a positive review seeing as instead of pissing on the game he just ragged on it for copying HL 2.

Huh.

Funniest zp in a long time (not to say that they aren't usually funny, it's just this one is going to go down as a 'classic'.)

omg, don't you understand, guys?

RESISTANCE 3 IS VALVE'S HALF-LIFE 2 EPISODE 3 WITH A FEW THINGS CHANGED! IT'S ALL PART OF THE HUGE GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY!

HIDE YOUR KIDS!

HIDE YOUR FAMILIES!

HIDE YOUR GAME CONSOLES!

JACK THOMPSON IS GONNA KILL US ALL!!!

srsly, great vid Yahtzee made. One of my all-time favorites.

Great review Yahtzee.

NOW PLAY A RATCHET & CLANK GAME ALREADY!!!

"And look! Insomniac Games! And if you rearrange the letters, lose some of them, and then add a few more, you get....WE WANT TO BE VALVE."

Easily my favorite line.

Huh, didn't see that coming...
Well, I might just pick it up now.

Hysterical! Absolutely hysterical! I wish I laughed harder but it takes quite a bit of stimuli to actually make me not force my laughter.

lol, that was really funny. the last part made me really laugh. all the resemblance to HL2. and amazing, no cover based shooter, no regenerating health, healthpacks....oh my god. amazing. so there are still companies out there who still do this stuff instead of cloning halo for the millionth time.

This is what I call a rave review from Yahtzee... he's so hard on games all the time that a review like this is like an A-

Health packs, carrying 10 guns, and Half Life themes....

I now have no reason to want to play this game. I might try a demo, just for laughs tho.

I could barely hear half the video because I was laughing so hard. Great video, Yahtzee.

Caramel Frappe:
Skyrim may count as the 3rd Elder Scrolls series. But, I would be wrong because they had The Arena, Morrowind, Oblivion, and now coming out with Skyrim so it'd be 4th. Darn it! XD

you do realize skirim is the FIFTH elder scrolls game, not the fourth?

you forgot TES II: Daggerfall

Sexy Devil:

I was going to say something about that, but you did much better job. thanks.

I laughed at the end part where that circle said "Insert Viewers Face Here" Make more funny visual style insults to the viewers like that.

Yahtzee, you smooth talking rapscallion, that was a genuinely enjoyable critique of a game! In a game you clearly enjoyed, that enjoyment carried through to your review. :) I really had a bigger blast watching than I normally do. It hearkened back to the days of old when your reviews were fresh and new.

There are worse things than ripping off Valve. They could be ripping off... Square-Enix or something.

are resistance 1 and 2 worth playing?

I liked the ending - we don't get light hearted humor as much these days from Yahtzee
