Resistance 3 video: Full Access Preview

One of the highlights of our week was the arrival of a Resistance 3 preview disc in our offices, which you already know about if you’ve taken a look at our latest hands-on preview. Representing a new direction for the alien-invasion FPS, Resistance 3’s action is gorier, its look is grittier and its gameplay’s been awfully fun so far. Just telling you that isn’t enough, though. To get a better sense of what to expect when the game ships this September, you need to see it in action, and so Chris, Brett and Mikel dove into the game's early moments to show off the little refugee community of Haven, Okla., and what happens to it when the alien/mutant Chimera finally sniff it out.

Does this game have the ability to overcome great blandness?

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
