Resistance 3: Survivor Edition* Oh REALLY?!


What i like to call Resistance 3: Overpriced Edition


















So i recently sent SCEE an Email asking about this, in a more polite manner.

This is what they had to say,

“Dear Mr. CloudLXXXV,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us about Resistance 3: Survivor Edition.

As you are well aware, the Survivor Edition does not come packed with dangerous weapons and we doubt that this fact will diminish your enjoyment in the world of Resistance.

Concerning the Chimera, have you tried taking out your Playing Cards and asking them to play some poker with you?

Or even play some Toy Soldiers

If they do not accept and decide to gnaw your face off, you can always use your Trusty Resistance 3 Branded Hip Flask to clobber them over the head repeatedly until blood gushes from their nostrils!

In which case, you can then gather their blood in your Hip Flask and have a sip every time your lips are parched!

We hope this information is helpful in surviving in the world of Resistance!

Take good care, and please refrain from contacting us again.

Mr. Sow Nii, SCEE Customer Services

NAH!! You know im just kidding!!

Resistance 3: Survivor Edition was a European Exclusive and was available for £99.99 on

This Edition actually Sold Out  prior to its Release, due to the huge amount of Pre-Orders it garnered.

Luckily for me i nabbed a copy, even though i didnt receive it until 6 days after its initial release due to internal problems on the recently updated gamestation site.

So here i have a nice little video for all you beautiful people!

This is on my own YouTube Channel, but soon i may request the help of the other Authors of 8BC to start a New Gaming Series just for 8BC.

Anyway, please enjoy the vid and share it, Like it, you know the drill.



Alien and Zombie killing just got ten dollars cheaper!

Before you start speculating on how every weapon and garden tool just got ten dollars cheaper, let me tell you to remain calm.. now remain calm. Are you calm?? Good. Okay now it’s time to get you all giddy and stuff, long story short; Resistance 3 and Dead Island are 10 dollars cheaper at Newegg!!!! However there is a catch, you have to input a specific code. Oh, if only there were a omnipotent game blogger that could supply you readers/worshipers with this magical code. Wait, there is :D. Here you go everybody! One last note, both games are eligible for FREE SHIPPING!

Well there ya go, links to get the games and the codes for your C&P pleasure. Now if you excuse me, I have to go back to making my own game. 🙂

As always, thanks for reading. Don’t forget to Like us on Facebook and stalk any of us on the Twitter.

New Resistance Commercial and TV Spot

Oh man Resistance 3 is going to be great and you can tell just by watching the trailer above. It shows so little, yet so much at the same time and leaves you with a eagerness that just wants more. A eagerness that makes you want it now and has you playing the scene in your mind of you on your couch with your mouth opened in awwww as you watch the opening cinematic for the first time. Are you ready for what awaits you in 4 days? Are you ready to walk into hell with Capelli knowing that their is no chance in coming back? I am. I am the Resistance.

Key Features:
• Journey as humanity’s last hope, father and soldier Joseph Capelli, across a devastated alternate history 1950s America.
• Resistance 3 returns with a fully loaded and upgradeable arsenal, including the return of the fan-favorite weapon wheel.
• Team up with a friend for online/offline co-op, or battle across the globe in a new progression-based 16-player human vs. Chimera multiplayer.
• Engage smarter and more agile Chimeran enemies — new awareness and cinematic traversal technology allows Chimera to traverse any terrain to reach you: nowhere is safe.

Resistance 3 Trophies Revealed! And Could R3 Be The Brownest Game.. Ever?

Brownest game? Nonsense! I see yellow, orange, blue, white, gray... brown.

Resistance 3 fans have a lot to look forward to when the game launches this September. 59 trophies and the color brown! There’s so much brown in this game you’d think someone spilled Yoo-Hoo over the programming code! But once you get past the vast amounts of brown, you have 59 shiny trophies to collect. The Playstation Blog recently published the entire Trophy list, which is full of spoilers and mildly clever commentary. Not as clever as me (obviously). But since I don’t have PlayStation 3 at the moment and will most likely not get to play it for a loooong time; I’ve taken the liberty of editing out the spoilers for all of you. But the “not as clever or witty as me” commentary is staying.

Continue reading for more Trophy details and a super secret prize just for you super sexy readers.. ugly ones will have to wait their turn. )_)

Master Mechanic – Fully upgrade all weapons in Campaign Mode (Silver).

This makes me all giddy because it takes me back to my Ratchet roots. I spend hours fully upgrading my colorfully destructive arsenal upon every new Ratchet & Clank release, and now I can finally do it in the Resistance universe. Except this time, there’s tons of blood. Yayz!

Nothing But Net – Score a basket by lobbing a grenade through a basketball hoop (Bronze).

I’m not the biggest basketball fan, but maybe I would be if they used live grenades instead of rubber balls. However, since I don’t know of a health care plan that covers “grenade dunks,” this Trophy will have to suffice for the time being.

Silent Partner – Damage the same enemy in Cooperative Mode for 100 kills (Silver)

Did you hear that you can play through Resistance 3’s campaign cooperatively? No? Well, congratulations because now you have! Why don’t you celebrate by working with your co-op partner to take down 100 Chimera together? That’s at least 20 percent cooler than taking them down alone.

Slaybells – Make Santa and his reindeer fly (Bronze)

I don’t care what my psychologist tells me – Santa is real. Who else would eat my cookies? I’m an awful baker. Knowing he is real is what makes this trophy so hard to get. Let’s just say you don’t make him fly by singing songs of holiday cheer. Sorry, Santa. Can I still get a PS Vita for Christmas?

Brutal – Complete Campaign Mode on Superhuman (Gold)

I love this Trophy because I helped balance the Superhuman difficulty. I played it – it was really, really hard. My feedback? Make it harder. Have fun, kiddoes! Muahaha!

Those are just a few of my favorite trophies. But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can find your favorites when Resistance 3 is released on September 6th. Here’s a list of the full batch:

Details On The Newest Update To The Resistance 3 Beta.

I hope you enjoy reading novels; because I’m about to post every single detail from Resistance 3’s (Beta) newest update straight from Insomniac’s page. “Why?” you ask… because I don’t want you to leave 8BC just to get the hottest news on your favorite games.. I have abandonment issues and I love you.

Hey folks,

As you are by-now well aware, we hit a rough patch over the last week with the Resistance 3 Online Beta. The expansion to the hundreds of thousands of SOCOM4 users revealed some bugs that we’ve been rapidly working to correct on our side. We greatly appreciate your patience, and the way you’ve banded together to create private games via Twitter, Facebook and forums.

Rest assured, creating a world-class multiplayer experience is our top priority at Insomniac Games. Our team is meeting daily to discuss issues and address them, and we’ve been playing the beta each night at home to continue logging and checking issues. We are focused on creating an experience we are proud of and want to play ourselves, and we will continue to work and fix these issues in order to get it right.

Europe PlayStation Plus

Tomorrow (Wednesday), the beta opens up in Europe for Early Access to the Public Beta, starting with PlayStation Plus subscribers.  We’ve updated the package file on the PSN store to have the latest beta contents, meaning EU and future testers won’t need to download the mega-patch that our US testers did. This also means that everyone needs a small patch to ensure compatibility. You’ll see this patch required tonight or tomorrow, and it will be update 2.00.


In good news, we have sent a patch (Update 2.01) that addresses the matchmaking issues into final testing at Sony, and are hoping to have it up by tomorrow night UK time, so that you EU folks joining the beta should be able to matchmake. This additional patch will be required, and will allow us to re-enable matchmaking, which should again (hopefully) happen sometime in the late morning Pacific Time tomorrow. This should address the issues and allow you to use matchmaking to find games again, while also addressing a few crashes. Thanks for your patience while we developed and fixed the issue – and please continue to report any issues you find with matchmaking to us so we can continue to tweak and optimize. We will continue to update you on the status of the 2.01 patch as it gets through final testing, staging, and release in the next day or so.

Stats coming down again

Sometime this (Tuesday) afternoon, we will be bringing down stat progression again until further notice. We are moving the stat database and tracking to the servers where they will live for the launch of the final game (and before you ask, yes, you will have to start over in the final game). That said, we’ll be porting your current beta stats to this new server and getting it set-up as quickly as possible. We know this is frustrating to the new folks joining the beta tomorrow in that you will not be able to progress, but we hope to knock this out as quickly as possible so you can begin to work your way up to the beta level cap, and we don’t expect this to last more than a day or two. We’ll keep you update when progression officially goes down, and when it is restored.

Outstanding issues

The matchmaking patch is a specific patch to deal with that issue (and a few crashes). We are also still testing a larger Day 1 Patch for the final game that contains fixes for many of the other bugs you’ve been encountering. Once we’ve gotten than patch through Sony final testing, we will then try to bring these fixes to the beta itself.

Some of the issues this includes are:

-Freezes/Crashes – particularly at the end of matches (though scoreboard crashes should be fixed in the 2.01 patch)
-Host/Party Leader rapidly changing between players
-Game has already ended errors when trying to join a game
-Lag issues with deployables and other players (though this should be improved at the moment, we will be adjusting our servers to continuing combating this)
-The Invisible Man glitch (both variants, where the Invisible player appears and doesn’t appear on the scoreboard) – we are still working to eradicate this – if you have a way to reproduce it, we are offering a bounty on info to help us eliminate it.

As you can see, we still have our work cut out for us, but we’re making progress. If you have feedback, please continue to post on the forums, send us replies via Twitter, or post on our Facebook wall. We’re all working hard to ensure Resistance 3 multiplayer is excellent, and your feedback is critical for that.
