Resistance – a generation of FPS in a nutshell

Recently, Sony prematurely pulled the online support plug on all three Resistance games. In doing so it became apparent the series never quite reached the popularity their creators intended them to, but the guys at Insomniac Games did manage to achieve something special. A look back at the evolution of Resistance looks like a cross-section of all of last generation of first person shooters.

A young father’s Minecraft Pocket Edition confessions

Being a gamer and a father is a time consumer. The father role has absolutely pushed things I considered fun further away from reality. Even though it’s nothing I would exchange for the other it’s still mind-blowing to understand that games like Minecraft have just sped right past me leaving me with absolutely no possibility to understand the concept as pictures don’t tell a thousand words in this case.
