Insomniac Games Turns Overstrike Into Fuse, Our Excitement Turns Into Anxiety

Geek Binge: Last year, developer Insomniac Games revealed a teaser trailer for their new game Overstrike, and it got me all hot and bothered. It had a slightly cartoonish art style, some Ratchet & Clank type weapons, four player co-op, and best of all, a sense of humor. It was a perfect amalgamation of what Insomniac did best: make fun, original games with sharp writing, memorable characters, unique worlds, and personality. The Spyro games were great platformers, and the R&C trilogy still stands as a shining achievement of the PS2 era. Overstrike seemed to be a logical step forward for Insomniac, and it quickly became one of my most anticipated games on the horizon. But then on Thursday, Insomniac showed off the first gameplay footage of their new game entitled Fuse. And we only have one question; just what exactly happened to the game that was Overstrike? (Dev, Fuse, Insomniac Games, Overstrike, PS3, Tech, Xbox 360)

Best to wait till it releases, and see for ourselves... But yeah, it does look different than before. Before it looked unique, and different. The trailer released was just... 'meh'. Explosions, explosions, explosions. Where's the wit? The charm? Gameplay we haven't seen a million times?

But still, I'll give them a benefit of a doubt and just wait before jumping on any kind of wagon.

Ahh... Haha, I really do like that first announcement trailer.

I think even if we all waited to play it and it is a amazing game, some of us will still be wondering what could have been.
