Insomniac Games "absolutely" believes Fuse has the potential to become a franchise, telling VideoGamer.com that it's confident it can take the series "in a lot of different directions".
Make a quality game with general appeal and it should. Easier said than done mind.
Well let's hope it's fun to play, that's the main thing.
Ea won't allow it. It won't sell above a million copies so ea will ax the series I'm sure after the first game.
EA cant ax it because Insomniac holds the rights to fuse.
Regardless if it sells bad no publisher is gonna want to publish the sequel except maybe Sony
Except that the IP belongs to Insomniac and not EA, so EA cannot axe anything
I don't like the trailers. The game looks very dull and like a game that can be easily passed/forgotten. The only thing that Fuse has going for it, as far as i can see, is the name Insomniac. I must play the game (demo) to understand their new direction, otherwise these trailers are not allowing the game any justice.
The gameplay videos I've seen remind me a lot of a toned down version of Vanquish but without the crazy Japanese style and humour. Vanquish was a bat shit crazy action packed ride from beginning to end.
Why must almost every game become a Franchise?
less risk, you have something to continue from in terms of building. With a new game, everything is from nothing. Plus no one knows how the consumer will react. If you make a sequel to even a bad game, based on the feedback you can change the game to the liking of the gamers/buyers/public.
No disrespect to Insomniac, but anything can become a franchice. Regardless of quality, if it turns a profit, sequels are inevitable.
They should of been making Aliens Colonial Marine, so many established brands aren't being done justice already. No chance of being overlooked then.
No sh!t. Resistance was a better Aliens game without trying to be.
I'm not seeing it . I've mostly seen indifference or posts about how it looks generics (looks not necessarily is) . ANyway it doesnt seems to generate a lot of excitement . I know it's a different game altogether from a different studio and publisher , but i have the same vibe i had with stuff like Dark sector or Dark Void .
Who is actually all that excited for FUSE?mTo many amazing games coming out to care about FUSE. I think I know what Insomniacs problem has always been; they do realize a game should sell well, and then you can make more right? Seems like they've always done things ass backwards. I love my PS3 but Resistance is most definetly the weakest franchise on the system. How many copies did Resistance 3 sell again? 10,000??? I'm not being an ass but the truth is the truth, they should've just stuck with Ratchet, but no their even starting to FUBAR Ratchet as well.
I would be absolutely shocked if this manages to sell a million units. This game is destined to bomb.
I predict 2 million :D
I believe it can be to, that why I will buy day one. plus what better way to keep you independent but by supporting you . Go insomniac
this game doesn't smell any good. reminds me of Quantum Theory with too much hype for nothing. i like Insomniac for their Resistance and especially old Ratchets and Spyros those guys are talented but i dont feel they are getting it right with this one.
well maybe it would have way higher chances of becoming a succesful franchise if they had sticked with overstrike instead of turning it into grimdark shooter no. 55647
Question Is it good or a bad franchise?
I know people are upset because they used to develop strictly for Sony, but it doesn't make sense for smaller 3rd party studios to stick to that model and still make money. I think the game looks interesting and could turn out pretty good. I'll definitely not condemn a game before I've even played it or seen anything much on it.
Fuse has no chance. Insomniac done goofed.
