Sunset Overdrive Is Now Available On Xbox One For Free (For Gold Members)

Posted on April 16, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Just a reminder to all of our readers who also might be Xbox One owners that Insomniac’s 2014 sleeper hit Sunset Overdrive is currently available on Xbox One’s Games With Gold service for free until May 15th. If you missed out on action packed third person shooter with a lot of attitude then now would be the perfect time to snag a copy for free from Microsoft. It’s too bad that Sunset Overdrive was a bit of a sleeper hit, it looked like it had the right balance of colorful graphics, tongue-in-cheek humor and vibrant nature to counter the dull boring shooters we usually get.

If you checked out this game let us know what you thought of it in the comments section.


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.

See Insomniac Games’ Outernauts On Facebook

Posted on July 24, 2012 by Seung Lee


Starting today, Outernauts is playable on the biggest social networking site right now, Facebook. What is Outernauts? It’s a new game from the folks that brought you classics such as Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Spyro the Dragon. As for how it plays, Outernauts is much like the popular Pokémon franchise.

According to the press release from EA, players will “explore planets, harvest loot, and fight asynchronously alongside or against friends to master a wild, untamed universe.” Don’t think that Outernauts is just a simple flash game to waste an hour or two on though. Ted Price, President and Founder of Insomniac Games, says that by  “bringing the breadth and elements of console gaming to a social game, we hope to give our fans—both old and new—a unique gaming experience on Facebook.”

Try the game now at https://apps.facebook.com/outernauts/. See EA’s press release at http://news.ea.com/portal/site/ea/index.jsp?ndmViewId=news_view&ndmConfigId=1012492&newsId=20120724005027&newsLang=en.
