Resistance 3 screens show comedy facial expressions, empty buildings. Trailer is much better

I do wonder how and why publishers choose to release particular screenshots for release sometimes. After all, with the entirety of an unreleased game on one's hands, not to mention all manner of debug camera control and the ability to lift any singleframe of action from any single gameplay sequence or cut-scene, you'd think it would be nigh impossible toapprove a crap one by accident. Yet still we end up with screens like the second one of Resistance 3hero Joseph Capelli in this set from Gamescom, which features the most ludicrously agog " I didn't know you were even taking a photo" expression I've ever seen on a game character. Ever. He looks like a total goon.

Oh yeah, and for some reason Sony thought that the world desperately needed to see four shots of empty industrial buildings too. But you know, that stuff seems important to them. Still, the trailer's good.

And just in case you missed it, here's that face again:
