This is what they have come to... Their first multiple platform title hasn't release yet and now they are developing IOS titles, I guess I might have to pick up an Ipod touch.

I'm the other way around. I give up on Insomniac they just aren't what they use to be when they were exclusive with Sony. Fuse looks like crap and I definitely don't care about no stupid phone game. Just my honest opinion.

your not alone, sadly when they announced that fused was being pushed back my first thoughts were that i forgot that the game was even being made, i literally forgot all about it, and for an insomniac game thats not right, and it does look very generic, now theyve gone to ios games.

They haven't actually made a bad game yet and we havent had info about Fuse is forever and we have no idea what this iOS app is, but k you guys are right INSOMNIAC IS DOOOOOM'D

"Brown color pallets!" "Overstrike looked better!" "They ditched Sony!" "Resistance wasn't even that good" (says people who most likely own all 3 Resistance games)

Im sure when Fuse comes out, it'll get solid 8.5 or 9's across the board and have the same crazy original weapons and great story that all their other games have had.

They're a great company. Full Frontal Assault just got an update today that adds a ton of free features including a free map. All the old Resistance DLC became free eventually as well.

I dont even care they're a great company and havent let me down yet. There's no ads or new info about Fuse that's been released yet which is why you "totally forgot about it".

It wouldn't surprise me. They haven't had a hit game for a while now. Devs need to develop games to stay in business.
BattleAxe  +   541d ago
I will always remember them for doing a really crappy job with Resistance 3's online. R1 and R2 had some of the best online gaming on the PS3 this generation. It basically looked like they just wanted to wrap things up quickly and move on. Such a shame...
Next gen AAA phone title.

64 players + and deep story!
Probably not though..

while you at it INSOMNIAC try making a full fledge RATCHET AND CLANK GAME WILL YA!!!

"ALL 4 ONE" sucked, "FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT" sucked. try making something close to "UP YOUR ARSENAL" "GOING COMMANDO"

dont be like EA with N4S one crapfest after another.criterion games made it worst combining Burnout engine to it and auto fu'king log...

Im watching my gf play most wanted right now and I've been sat there thinking how the he'll the game got such good reviews. Its a technical mess, the world feels lifeless, there's absolutely no narrative or personality that the original had in regards to the 15 drivers.. Even the soundtrack is terrible and criterion are usually good at that. And seriously.. Rubber banding needs to die already. At least at that level when its so obvious.

Glad to see Im not the only one

Agree, criterion games is a technical mess, it feel like burnout through an through. you would think at least a list to climb as the original MOSTWANTED had. the game by far sucks as morkendo above said it is craptastical.
what was EA thinking adding auto-log to the format???

Maybe it's a companion app for Fuse.
-MD-  +   542d ago
I would be hesitant to dump more time and money into an app for a game that's sure to bomb.
landog  +   542d ago
i havent really LOVED a game by them since ps2

i like ratchet future tools, it was pretty good, nothing compared to going commando or up your arsenal, resistance was mehhh.....part 1 and 2 were pretty good, 3 was a 7/10 at best for me

i wish they would go back to the going commando formula for r and c and i think resistance has potential as a franchise,

i think they will do some cool things next gen, they just haven't wowed me this gen at all
juandren  +   542d ago
And here I was, thinking I'm the only one who didn't like Resistance. I see it as the "bottom of the barrel" of PS3 exclusives
Knushwood Butt  +   541d ago
I loved FoM and R2 myself.

R3? Not so much.
abzdine  +   542d ago
end of glory for this ex-great developer
CommonSenseGamer  +   542d ago
If there games had sold and I mean really sold, on PS3 I dare say they would have remained exclusive. However, the Resistance franchise was solid but definitely not AAA. Basically Kill zone set a standard on PS3 that no other FPS ON Sony's console came close to.

After reading the main title for this report .. This is what happen to me

http://alltheragefaces.com/...

Activi$ion .. Give them back Spyro Before they start doing something much stupid than this .
KMCROC54  +   541d ago
That be cool if Activision got them to make a multi platform spyro or crash seeing how Act. Owns the IPs.
would definitely buy those games.
Drainage  +   542d ago
lmao good riddence. thats what they get for ruining Resistance2 and being lazy with the R&C franchise with no multiplayers and 1 day campaigns . Then when you dont sell well, you start releasing shit on multiplatform, then make a more generic ORANGE shooter after murdering Resistance. Good riddance. Guerrilla games was always better
ironfist92  +   541d ago
Resistance 3 was a dissapointment, Fuse looks generic, and now developing iOS games?

The future of Insonmniac doesnt look too great unless the create high quality unique titles like they once used to
KMCROC54  +   541d ago
Well if they can get Fuse & this mobile game to be hits .
while selling like hotcakes, they will be able to remain independent for a very long time. Good luck to everyone at Insomniac.
