To be, or not to be, Resistance 3
Ever loved a game so much you wish you could actually be a part of it? Well if Resistance 3 happens to be one of those games, then the London theater scene's got what you're looking for.
The worlds of gaming and theater are about to crash together in an awesome way thanks to Sony, Resistance 3 and a London theater group called Punchdrunk. "...and darkness descended" is Punchdrunk's latest interactive performance inspired by Resistance 3, that makes audience members feel more like gamers. Participants will have to navigate the Resistance Universe and struggle to survive by cooperating against alien invaders... and the longer you survive, the more of the performance you get to see.
I'll admit my love for theater may leave me with a slight bias, but this sounds just plain awesome. Anyone who's bringing art and video games together in a cool way is a-okay in my book.
"...and darkness descended" takes place in Waterloo Station Arches, September 1-4. That'd be one hell of a way to spend Labor Day weekend. Tickets for the show are free, but I'd be willing to bet that sucker's already sold out.
