I really want any resistance rep but it's looking increasingly unlikely.

It still bewilders me that insomniac gave them a stage, a mashup and two items, and no character. And i agree with you, he'd be very different from Radec, the weapons are much more diverse and he'd be more up in your face and close to mid range, as well as having traps and keep away items such as the cryogun and Mutator. 


I've always felt it goes without saying that all of the Resistance references (stages, items, etc.) were intended to honor the series as compensation for the lack of a character, at least at launch. In other words, I think they made the decision to include multiple 'shoutouts'  to the franchise INSTEAD of a character, and I feel it more than makes up for it. It's not that they didn't think of it; it's moreso a decision, in my opinion. I actually prefer this way of representing a series if it's the best way, as opposed to forcing a non-unique character into the roster (like the shield from Wipeout, for example). The way I see it, the Chimera are unique and cool enemies, but they're not one specific CHARACTER. They're just an overall species/race/whatever without individual names. If we're to play as 'All-Stars' (particularly villains, like Killzone) we should get a particular boss or actual character with a personality (like Radec) instead of just a nameless enemy you run into hundreds of times. Plus, I feel Resistance is more about the weapons, anyway i.e. the Hedgehog grenade. I'm talking in circles now...

yea i understand that, Resistance doesn't have a memorable character. Nathan Hale was killed, most people don't know Joseph capelli and their is no sort of leader chimera in Resistance.

 

i still want chimera Superbot Smiley Mad

I would take hale or chimera. Hale would be more interesting or infected hale but he dies which was a dumb choice on insomniacs part.

So I dunno if he would be represented

I think if they weren't in the final roster, their not in for a reason from Insomniac's part, which I'd be curious as to see what, even though I respect their decision - it's their creation, they can do whatever they want, atleast we got a great stage out of it.

the chimeras do have a lider its the pure chimera race  we only saw a skeleton so far, i was abi disapointed that we didnt fight any pure chimera xreature , they are the ones pulling the streams  but who cares nathan hale is dead  you should know radec was killed in killzone2 like nathan hale was in resistance 2 so having him with psychic powers would be cool since we lack any psychic on PASBR so far we need a ness/lucas with guns here xD

I agree, but like the series a lot, so I solved that issue by making one of their few intelligent leaders playable by proxy of the Chimeran forces.

It means we get the face of the franchise while still representing how creepy the lot of them are (one Chimera couldn't do that).

 

I'd also love to see Hale be playable. I hope we get too Resistance reps in the sequel.
