More Resistance Multiplay3r


Last night my friends and I played Resistance on my new PS3. I still like hearing those words. My new PS3. Not to gloat or anything. ;) (I noticed when loading up my game that my PS3 hardly collects any dust. I wonder what people are complaining about.)

Anyway, Resistance is a great game, but it’s not perfect. Here are a couple problems when playing multiplayer:

  1. Players can’t set their own names. I’d much rather kill Steve than Player 3. And when Player 1 kills me, I always have to ask who it is because I have a terrible memory. This lack of naming is really annoying. I complained about this when playing GRAW, and now I complain about it when playing Resistance. The only difference is, I was wrong about GRAW – we just hadn’t figured out how to do it.
  2. When setting up a player characters, each player should hit Ready, and when everyone is ready, the game should start. Not so. What happens instead is that anybody can start the game, even when other players aren’t prepared.
  3. You can’t choose Chimera when playing Deathmatch.
  4. Selecting which control scheme to use is confusing. What does “Assassin” mean, anyway?

I hope that Insomniac fixes these things, though I’m not holding out much hope.

    I noticed each player can’t set their own names but I think thats because the game active is tied in to the active person signed in on the PS3. Like me and my brother in-law have a game started on Resistance. If I want to continue my game, I have to make sure that I’m logged in to the Playstation Network under my username. Same with it vice versa. So since you can’t have multple accounts on one PS3 online at the same time, you can’t have the names used either. Probably won’t get fixed.

    Some Halo multiplayer games are like this too. Online you can start a game and pick up weapons while waiting for people to join the game.

    Annoying indeed..but I prefer Human for the radar.

    have no clue..

    I’m not talking about going online. I’m talking about local splitscreen play. We should be able to set our names.

    Not being funny have to admit you are right about this it is better to kill someone with a name but then it is not that bad really the game is still pretty good and the console in bloomin amazing.

    It seems like most of your complaints could be fixed with a simple patch, except for 4. Maybe if enough people give insomniac feedback, they may patch it with a few tweaks to make the game THAT much better. Gone are the days were games are set in stone when they are release, they can be changed, improved…
