Insomniac's Ted Price takes you through 18 minutes of Fuse

Joystiq:

"Insomniac Games president and CEO Ted Price narrates this video for Fuse, taking you through the four playable members of the Overstrike squad, their weapons, and their skill-based progressions. Also covered are the co-operative elements, including 'Fusion' mode which as Price puts it lets all four players become "Fuse-powered wrecking balls." (Fuse, PS3, Xbox 360)

at least it looks cleaner than Resistance 3. And is just me or the weapons seem a bit overpowered?

Blastoise  +   640d ago
Yeah, everyone knows Resistance 3 was dirty!

/s

On topic...looks a bit boring. You can tell some effort has been put into it but it lacks a certain spark...

I remember all the attention Insomniac got for going multiplatform but it looks like Sony dodged a big bullet by not having to publish this. I use to love Insomiac but they just seem uninspired with Fuse.

@Abash,

Remember when Fuse was still Overstrike? It looked a lot more promising and more along the lines of what Insomniac would do. I think EA as the publisher of this game has forced Insomniac to make the game cater to a certain kind of audience. Resulting in a hollow shell of a great game that Overstrike could have been if Insomniac had had the full say on it.

Strangely enough, I think I understand what you mean by cleaner looking than R3. But in no way that means it looks graphically better than R3. The look of fuse is cleaner, but the environments look much more plain n boring since it has much less going on in the background, where as R3 has crap loads of things happening, like sand storms, objects flying around as well as trees blowing in the background. So this game is definitely a downgrade from R3 technically and graphically in my eyes, but I still find the concept of this game interesting so I'm gonna give it a go once it releases.

Lol, if it was an exclusive, I'd wager there'd be way more people hyping this game instead of downing it. Anyway, after seeing it in action especially towards the end, I can say I'm definitely interested. I think they're taking the online co-op of Resistance 2 and building upon that with this game. Yeah, I see what they're doing. I'm in...

What he means is resolution.

It looks cleaner, because it's higher rez.

Disagree all you want.

I love resistance3, but it's blurry because it runs at 960x704, instead of 1280x704 like resistance 2.

As for fuse, looks okish.

As long as it's not too easy.
badz149  +   640d ago
kinda generic but hey...
if it provides great 4 player coop, what's there to complaint about? Borderlands was poor in the story department too but coop makes it fun but only for 2! Insomniac has done 8 player coop in R2 and it was the saving grace of what might have been a disaster for the whole series! if anyone can handle online right, it's Insomniac!

gamers/media were a bit forgiving with Borderlands and it's generic story because it's fun to play with friends but why not giving this a chance? there's no proof that this is already a bad game, right?
Abash  +   640d ago
Borderlands has a great universe and tons of comedy with likable characters even if it's not story driving. Also the gameplay is fun and addictive, it's just a great series. Now that I think about it though, with all the crazy fun weapons and interest, funny characters Borderlands has it's like Gearbox are the Insomniac of this gen
badz149  +   640d ago
crazy fun weapons?
hey I love Borderlands just like the next guy but those weapons in Borderlands are just normal weapons with added elements like fire, electric, poison and stuff and the only thing makes them worth changing your guns over and over in Borderlands is because of their level! throw those away, you will have pretty standards guns just with different names!

as for crazy guns, Resistance and R&C still are kings!

IT LOOKS GENERIC....
BigStef71  +   640d ago
I think Insomniac said they were starting with the 360 first since they never worked on the system before and then they'll do the ps3 version after since that version will be really easy for them to do because they know the ps3 from inside to out

haha "hyperion" they are on pandora not earth!

alien substance??? they mean eridium.

overstrike??? they mean vault hunters...

i love insomniac lol but they need to get back to proper ratchet or give resistance another try....

they played way too much borderlands and that is exactly what this is trying to be but without the character or personality and unique art direction

*sigh* Come on, Insomniac. You are better than this.
FunAndGun  +   640d ago
"team of mercenaries"
"covert installations"
"US Government"
"rouge paramilitary group"

Then they say "Fuse is not a military shooter" - oh OK.

There are only 4 main Fuse weapons and the rest are standard shooter weapons.

Oh Insomniac, you guys need some sleep.
BigBoss1964  +   640d ago
Really Insomniac you stopped doing Resistance for 'this'?
Lvl_up_gamer  +   640d ago
This IP seems a bit on the generic side....

But at least they are trying. They are just trying to find that "lightening in a bottle".

It will come so long as they can afford to keep trying.
bubs78  +   640d ago
What the hell has happened to this game it has gone from looking like a brilliant fun game to just another bland middle of the road title.

Look at this trailer it looked amazing!

Emilio_Estevez  +   640d ago
I think this game looks at least decent. Certainly reminds of Resistance, but that's not a bad thing. Def some positives I can see and I'll be watching to see how the games developement unfolds.
Cajun Chicken  +   640d ago
Interesting, it's like Resistance meets Bulletstorm meets Borderlands. I'm intrigued.
FunAndGun  +   640d ago
Or

Generic meets Uninspired meets Been There Done That.
Yo Mama  +   640d ago
Raven? Over Strike? Fuse? Hyperion? I'm sorry Insomniac. I have loved every game you've ever made, but this just reeks. A few words that came to mind while watching this video.

1. Generic
2. Convoluted
3. Unoriginal
4. Contrived

It sounds like this game was conceived in a matter of minutes. Similar to how a group of school kids would scramble to put together a class project the morning before it was due. You can do better, Insomniac.
Lukejj  +   640d ago
Sony have helped insomniac be better than just average devs for years... Now without Sony people are going to see how run of the mill they are.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   640d ago
I think EA have been involved and told them to tone down the cartoony look and make it look as boring as possible.
Overstrike looked much more interesting.
Hopefully the gameplay makes up for it.

I am looking forward to giving this a try. It definitely looks like a game that will not sell well on the PS3; therfore, I am glad that Insomniac looked to a more fertile market. So many of the responses here seem like the responses of a jilted lover.

the game looks fine, but I won't be getting it because there are too many other good games.

now for a discount price I might get it, they nailed resistance 2 coop, maybe they can do it again with fuse.
masa2009  +   640d ago
Proof of originality if there ever was one, the chinese chick is even called Mai Lin.
BabyTownFrolics  +   640d ago
looks cool, I loved the Resistance games so I'm optimistic. Of course the usual babies on this site will hate on it cause Insomniac is no longer Sony exclusive.

I really don't understand all of the hate. Did any of you even watch past the first minute? It looks great!
Sevir  +   640d ago
Most didnt
They still judge the game based on a 4 minute CGI trailer from 2011 which showed no game play, everyone who has had time with this game says its incredibly inline with what Insomniac is known for, humor crazy weapons and great narrative. Its interesting, if you listened to people on N4G you'd miss out on many great games. They love to throw around generic. Lol, its the trend on N4G, bash a game into the ground and hope it fails before yo ever get a chance to play it.
jaklink  +   640d ago
People just want to hate it for no reason, it actually brings some interesting twists to the co-op shooter genre. On top of that it looks super polished and it contains the classic Insomniac humor.
Locksus  +   640d ago
And who is publishing this game again?
The_Infected  +   640d ago
I've not paid much attention to Insomniac or this game so why is it so generic as everyone is saying? Why does everyone not like Fuse at all so far from the comments i read?
grailly  +   640d ago
mainly sour resistance fans I guess. I looks good!

it is true though, that it doesn't have the charisma of R&C and resistance, but that's just the art part of the game, I'm sure the gameplay will be good.
rulakir  +   640d ago
Insomniac should have stayed with SONY.
Redgehammer  +   640d ago
Yeah, and let Sony keep another IP, when all it did was publish the gane? I would want to own what I created, so I understand any developers desire for creative freedom, and ownership of its IPs.
r21  +   640d ago
Weapons are interesting but the game looks dull and feels like another military shooter. Again, I'd rather have that 'Overstrike', looked more fun and unique compared to this.
urwifeminder  +   640d ago
Looks ok lost me at stealth and skill trees.
VsAssassin  +   640d ago
I love Ted and how he's trying to shed some light on the story of this new game. I believe he's trying to make us see how he sees this game. That said, I'm sorry, all I'm seeing is a 4-player co-op shooter game that's just reminiscent of Resistance 2's co-op mode.

For R2, the co-op was fine, being an added mode and all that. But for a retail, new IP game like this, I guess I was expecting so much more. Sigh...
Arcanine  +   640d ago
i know the game will be great.. but it looks like crap
Oldman100  +   640d ago
They need to do themselves a favour and change the artstyle back to something more appealing. Other than that I'm content with what I'm seeing. It looks like a great co-op experience. The focus on teamwork and unique character & weapon abilities make it stand out from most other shooters on the market.
mafiahajeri  +   640d ago
My eyes!!!! Too many lights!!! 0_0'
SageHonor  +   640d ago
This doesn't look as bad as people make it out to be. Despite the loss cartonny feel, all of the characters look fine. Well the big brute looks generic... otherwise the other 3 characters seem interesting. It looks like they'll still be implementing humor and the weapons look fun to use.

My only concern is that i need to see more that distinguishes this game from other third person shooters. Also, EA being the publisher doesn't do this game any justice.
