Creepy Resistance Viral Spooks Media

December 10, 2010 Written by Sebastian Moss

Announced during this year’s gamescom conference, Resistance 3 stole the show, with a stunning live action trailer hinting at the game’s content. But the reveal lacked any gameplay, which we will be able to see for the first time tomorrow at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. With such a huge buzz surrounding the game, and in true Insomniac Games style, the developer has ramped up their viral marketing machine by releasing a scary image of a Grim in the wild, baffling media outlets.

An apparent deer hunter in Berwick near Morgan City, Louisiana posted the creepy picture on the  Wildgame Innovations website , claiming he was lying in wait in the pitch black when the strange creature appeared. He was so frightened that his camera broke, but he managed to retreive the image from its undamaged memory chip.

The Daily Mail, which also reported on the story, were baffled by the picture, strangely believing that the picture was of Spider-Man, and WTDN were perplexed by what they saw, as were NC33 who even featured it on their Morning Edition show. In response, Insomniac Games teased that they could be behind the image on their Twitter account:

Whoops… looks like one got out. If you see a Grim on the loose… please return to Insomniac Games, Burbank, CA: http://bit.ly/fqGoXX

The Grim is a new strain of the Chimera enemy that first appeared in Resistance 2.

Are you excited for Resistance 3? Be sure to stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle for coverage of Resistance 3‘s VGA reveal, as well as the rest of the show, tomorrow.
