Fuse | Review

Posted on June 5, 2013 by Joshua Rust

Version Tested: Xbox 360

Let’s face it, Insominac Games is a pretty big name in the gaming world. Series like Resistance and Ratchet & Clank are proof that Insomniac Games knows what they are doing. So, does their newest title, Fuse, the first game published by EA and developed for not only Sony’s PlayStation 3, but Microsoft’s Xbox 360, keep Insomniac’s tradition of quality titles running? Read More


Insomniac Games Files Trademark ‘Sunset Overdrive’

Posted on February 27, 2013 by Joshua Rust

Nothing and I mean nothing gets by you all on the internet. Insomniac Games has silently registered a trademark for Sunset Overdrive. Even though the studio has went on to publicly announce that it will not be continuing the Resistance franchise, they do have the upcoming (recently delayed) action packed co-op shooter Fuse which is setting at a tentative Spring 2013 release date.

While nothing specific has been announced on Sunset Overdrive, the details from the filed trademark list “computer game software” and “entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game”. So while Insomniac Games is “done” with Resistance, they apparently do have something in the pipeline for us. It’s just a matter of when it will be officially unveiled. We all know that GDC is coming up along with E3…so those look like opportune moments for us to hear more about Sunset Overdrive.

We’ll keep our ears open and report back when we find anything concrete about this potential game.


New Fuse Trailer Goes Into Story Mode

Posted on December 19, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Fuse, which was previously called Overstrike, is Insomniac Games first stab at bringing a game to the Xbox 360 console. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, well it should – they are responsible for the ever popular Resistance series on the Playstation 3. I’m excited to see Insomniac go multiplatform and bring their talent to everyone on all different gaming systems.

So, Fuse was announced back in June 2011 and there really hasn’t been a lot of details beside the information on the characters and the official trailer. So today Insomniac Games has released a story trailer to give a bit of information on what the storyline will be based around. Enjoy!

Fuse currently doesn’t have an exact release date, but it is expected to release Spring 2013.



Insomniac Games Shows Off Fuse Trailer & Details

Posted on September 17, 2012 by Joshua Rust

Fuse, formerly Overstrike, is being developed by Insomniac Games. This makes their first title to make the leap over to Xbox 360 (still hoping for Resistance…). A lot of new information, including an interview at CVG and a trailer, has been released for your eyes!

Ted Price, CEO of Insomniac sat down for an interview with CVG. Here is what he had to say about it.

Fuse demonstrates what Insomniac does best: outlandish and gruesome weapons design, over-the-top action and a touch of humor. We’re especially excited to see how players utilize lethal teamwork by combining their Fuse weapons to stop a deadly arms race.

This is a personal issue for me, because I really like playing games with high-impact weapons”. “Where you feel like you’ve done a lot of damage, and you’ve ruined that enemy’s day, and we weren’t doing that with the weapons we had before. Even though in the video they looked cool, they weren’t turning people on here and they weren’t turning people on that we had come in and play the game.” When the team made the change to center on fuse and its offensive potential (rather than what were essentially just four support abilities), “it was like a breath of fresh air around here, because we finally got to let loose and experiment, go much further.
