Did You Know
- ...that two of the characters that Resistance: The Gathering Storm focuses on have friends with their first names being Harley?
- ...The first chapter of Resistance 2 is named India Eight-Two Crash Site which means "Resistance 2" because in military terms, India stands for "I" and of course Eight(8) Two(2). Resistance: Fall of Man was originally codenamed I-8, hence when Resistance 2 (the sequel) came along it would have been named Resistance: Fall of Man 2 (I-8-2 = India Eight-Two)?
- ...that Joseph Evan Capelli was allowed into the army by Moral Waiver even though, in our timeline, it was set up in mid 1960's?
- ...that there many other strains of Chimera to appear in Resistance: Fall of Man but Insomniac Games had to drop the ideas to release the game at the same time the PS3 came out, but were later added to Resistance 2 instead?
