This week, due to strong pre-sale demand, Resistance 3 ranked as the number 15th best-selling pre-order product at GameStop.
Resistance is a game series about an alien race called the “Chimera,” that have invaded planet Earth and infected millions of people with a virus that slowly turns its victims into Chimera themselves.
The games take place in alternative reality in the 1950s, after the Chimeran army sweeps across Europe and the United States. The main character in both the first two Resistance games was a soldier named Nathan Hale. In the newer installation of the series there is a new hero: Joseph Capelli, a former US Marine who has joined the human resistance to help stop the Chimeran invasion.
