Resistance is a science-fiction horror series of first-person shooter and third-person shooter video games developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita game consoles. The series takes place in an alternate history 1950s, in which an alien civilization known as the Chimera have invaded and conquered Earth, expanding their armies by capturing humans and transforming them into monster-like supersoldiers to fight for them.

  • ...that Stephen Cartwright is voiced by Peter Jessop who also voices Albert Wesker in the Resident Evil Series.
  • ...that Joseph Capelli's scar on the left side of his face was caused by a doctor hitting him with a crowbar after Capelli attacked him during Project Abraham?
