I'll definitely be getting the demo.

"Fuse Won’t Have an Online Pass or Microtransactions" this is the way it's suppose to be.

If Insominac would have included those thing I think the would've hit with backlash. Backlash right before the game is release isn't good, especially for a new ip.

Isn't this the first EA published title to not have an online pass, since they started this a few years back? Insomniac has some big balls.

I will download the demo.

Can't say no to a developer with Insomniac's esteem. They have a pretty solid resume. I'm sure they could find another publisher if EA ever tried to screw with the deal in some way.

Crysis 2.

We keep hearing more proof that Insomniac is in full control of their own IP yet some people still want to shift the focus away from them and back onto EA.

It sounds like a fun game and I'm glad you can play the whole game solo or split-screen or co-op up to 4 people, along with drop-in and drop-out features.

Awesome. Really excited for this game.

Mad respect for Insomniac.

They aren't under sony's umbrella anymore and habe made some questionable choices with this new IP but I love their game so I hope this gets the full backing and advertising from EA.

Originally, I loved the overstrike team fortress type look and silly theme. I hope it is able to find an identity as a more realistic co op experienve. They made my favorite co op experience of all time with Resistance 2 co op so I am optimistic. I missed it in R3 and I am astinoshed that no one has tried something similar since. This though could be it. I love having four classes thay r forced to work together as they battle dynamic and everchanging enemies and layout.

R2 co op was brilliant and if this is the next step in its evolution, I am game. But for success with new IP, its gonna need big support. I hope it gets it.

I'm looking forward to this. I loved Squad based shooters and Switching characters.

People have done nothing but complain about this game because it switched to Fuse, but the truth is no one gave a crap about Overstrike until they were told they couldnt have it and then they cried like a baby for its rattle.

The videos look good, it looks like it plays nice and I havent played a bad Insomniac game yet so Im definitely giving them the benefit of any doubt.

@Bathyj -
Speak for yourself on that one, good sir. I was always interested in Overstrike.
I liked the theme, characters and the art direction of Overstrike.
Not to say, though, that I hated the decision to switch Overstrike to Fuse.

We'll see how this game turns out. I've got faith in Insomniac.

What about DLC?
BoNeSaW23  +   878d ago
You are begging for DLC confirmation before the game is released!?

YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.
ironfist92  +   878d ago
No, im saying that they havent denied any DLC content, which probably means there will be in the future, which is a turn off.
Ashlen  +   879d ago
Well i'll take a look at it. I don't know much about the game but I respect them for rejecting the nickle and dime approach that has infected the gaming space.
Dirtnapstor  +   879d ago
This game is going to be awesome, even it's not the Overstrike everyone was looking forward to. Insomniac is a quality developer.
Evil_Ryu  +   878d ago
I hope insomniac goes bankrupt for making this garbage
MysticStrummer  +   878d ago
I hope your mommy refuses to buy it for you when you decide you want it.
SOULJER  +   878d ago
K@@L. information i might get it.
isarai  +   878d ago
Hopefully the demo gets people past the butthurt of changing the visuals from cell shaded
hazelamy  +   878d ago
it looks like it lost a lot of the humour and character along with the name change, but it could still be a decent game.
i'll definitely be giving the demo a shot.

and no online pass is something i can get behind
knifefight  +   878d ago
Hopefully more games keep it real like this.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   878d ago
For that you have my support......
Genuine-User  +   878d ago
I'll decide my purchase after I try out the demo. Good on them for keeping it real with us gamers.
