It's good enough to whet your appetite until a better FPS rolls around, which won't come until the last quarter of the year.

Out of curiosity, is the scene from the NGP footage reel in the game? Where the plane crashes through the roof? it's at around 1:12.

Played through the Resistance demo... It's not a bad game, but almost everything about the game screams "low-budget" to me, even the plain-looking menus and fonts. I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised given Nihilistic's reputation as a D-list developer. I'm certainly not willing to pay $40 for it.

I've got a question about Resistance: Is there an option to make the onscreen buttons like the grenade go away and be used as one of the physical buttons? That is one the things that I think is really bad, having to take you hands off the other controls so you can touch those ugly icons.

Yeah, they should have at least had another studio help Nihilistic develop it- people that have experience with FPSs.

Just curious, has any of our UK Vita owners downloaded the demo? I've searched for it on PSN via both my PS3 and my Vita and all I can find is the 7.99 Network Pass!

Given that the game launches here in like, what, two days, it would be nice to try it out first.

Still giving Resistance a chance. Had I played the demo, I wouldn't have bought, but we need to support the PSV if we don't want it to turn into another PSP. I guess you can say I'm taking one for the team.

To it's credit, I have not seen the frame rate drop, once, which may be why the graphics seem to be a little underwhelming.

I think the big difference here between the Nova and Resistance comparison is the level of smoke and mirrors each dev has laid over the dead horse otherwise known as FPS. Not to say Nova is a better game, they are each different in many ways, but it DOES have a thicker layer of polish to mask that dead horse we keep beating.

Uk PSN updates a few days after the american one it's been annoying me a bit since I got one but I think it updates some time on Thursday.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Well, maybe at e3 we'll see some decent games for the vita that'll turn out better. I don't own a vita but I think that any progress for gaming on it is progress for mobile gaming as a whole...and I'm a little disappointed too, I kinda expected it to kill nova 3 gameplay wise at least, but I hear that resistance is also linear with dumb AI (so is nova 3). One thing I did like, though, were the real time character shadows.

Maybe we'll see some gameplay of cod and fond out if it's a port or a whole new game.

UK PSN updates mostly on a Wednesday. The Gravity Rush demo as well as the usual PSN stuff is all available today and like I mentioned, the Resistance Network Pass was released today with it all... just no demo.
