Ted Price Discusses The Evolution Of Fuse And Fan Feedback

GI:You might remember seeing a trailer for a game called Overstrike at EA's press conference over a year ago, but the team at Insomniac Games remained quiet about the mysterious title until last month. The game has been renamed Fuse and leaves the campy 70s vibe on display in the original trailer behind for a more "realistic" and darker tone. (Fuse, PS3, Xbox 360)

I don't see any reason they couldn't have made it campy , stylized , and violent all in one package though.

EA thought it was too childish

Gotta cater to those 12 year old focus groups

Game looked quirky and cool. EA intervened. Game looks like everything else.

I wanted to play this when it was Overstrike now... not so much.. and i love Insomiac games they should of kept the original but just made it Violent like Team Fortress it would of been awesome

Im sorry Ted i like how you say you listen to fan feedback and stuff, but you bowed down to EA and its focus group filled with cod kiddies. Now its just another generic looking shooter instead of something in the same sort of style as TF2 with R&C type humor. I doubt ill pick it up in march.

Insomniac just gave up their creative freedom, the funny thing they wanted to stay independent but at Sony they had more creative freedom then now working at EA.

They said going multiplat would be good for business. They said you will sell to more people. Freedom they said....
Frankfurt  +   694d ago
Their games sold like shit on PS3 (just like Killzone, Infamous and pretty much every other Sony franchise - hell, the best-selling God of War sold less TOTAL than what Gears of War sells in a MONTH, and the Uncharted 3 totals are less than what Halo sells in a week), so the only way they'll sell less is if they aren't released at all.

This game is missing something that's for sure.
PirateThom  +   694d ago
Insomniac are probably one of the most consistantly good developers out there and while I don't want to doom Fuse without knowing too much about it, the telltale signs of EA aren't exactly inspiring confidence here.

Oh look Fuse, the next game to hate on for no good reason at all. Gotta love that Fan Feedback. I swear all you whiners are going to make Fan Feedback worthless, the same way user reviews are now worthless.
Megaplaynate  +   694d ago
And yet you keep whining about the whiners, isn't that nice?
Baka-akaB  +   694d ago
Come on , the game had a distinctive look , now it doesnt .

It would hard to tell pics apart from some other titles without captions and legends .

It might still be a good title , but why should people pretend they arent dissapointed ?

The sells for this game are gonna be terrible. Also, IG has a problem making badass weapons that are too overpowered and make the single player too easy/not challenging. Considering they are focusing on CO-OP and not online MP, I see this game failing.
FarCryLover182  +   694d ago
Why oh why did they sign an agreement with EA for??? -___-

Another 3rd party dev would have been better. I'm sure Square Enix would have published or even Take Two.
PirateThom  +   694d ago
EA have a partner system where the developer keeps the IP rights. Square Enix and Take Two don't.
FarCryLover182  +   694d ago
Oh yeah,I know about that system. Valve are a part of it, but if EA did indeed have a say in changing the entire direction of the game, I think they'd have been better off somewhere else.
SOULJER  +   694d ago
I enjoyed insomniac R&C and resistance. I feel whole heartily they should have never sign with EA. I just feel this game is going to suk. I also feel sorry for Ted Price. All my friends on my list thinks he a SELL OUT. I understand it's a business.
BigStef71  +   693d ago
I will buy FUSE because I love Insomniac Games. I am disappointed they changed the tone of the game but I imagine it will still be fun and awesome like their other games. This is an interesting history about them ign did a few weeks ago
