I have been playing Resistance 2 on my PS3 lately. It is my only PS3 game, so I figured it was finally time to give it a whirl. It's actually pretty fun. The weapons, with their dual functions, are all pretty nice. Graphics wise, it is top notch. The scale of the game, from the landscape to the monsters themselves, is impressive.

Why does it seems aliens are always monsters? Resistance is pretty standard in the monster alien department. Halo's Covenant was a nice change of pace, but the flood were really just monsters. I would really like to find some non-disgusting technological aliens for once. A FPS doesn't have to also be a horror game... as COD shows.

Whatever happened to Lions, Tigers and Bears... oh my? It seems in these games, everything on Earth is always weak. We and the other predators are pretty much perfectly adapted to this world.... I'd love to see aliens have some disadvantage. Instead, they have a monster for every situation. Super unkillable water creature? Check. Zombies for the dark, check. Nasty spider like creatures? Can't go without them.... Invisible guys? Che... Where did they go?

After resistance, I am thinking Killzone 2. I hear that is pretty good.
