Ted Price aiming to offer "something fresh" among a "sea of sequels"

GI - Insomniac boss not worried about launching new IP at end of console cycle, says gamers have been playing the same games for last 6 years. (Fuse, PS3, Ted Price, Xbox 360)

Then you look at FUSE. Yep, look like every other 3rd person military shooter over the past 6 year.
thebrownbox  +   961d ago
Not really dude. If you've paid any attention, they have taken the time to develop some really neat characters. They have also decided not to make competitive multiplayer, which is kinda the opposite of what most military shooters are aiming for. Based on just looks, Fuse doesn't look much different than the the later 2 Mass Effect games.

I'm still waiting to experience the story and then I'll judge. And they also said the echelon mode was injected with R2s co-op DNA, and that was some great fun.
Skips  +   961d ago
Agreed, if they wanted to offer something fresh. Maybe they should release Overstrike instead. -_-

looks a lot more "FRESH" than


Seriously sad to see another great developer sell their soul to E.A.

Should've stuck with Sony. -_- Or at least find a publisher who ACTUALLY PUSHES FOR "FRESH".

I doubt it. I don't really trust insomniac after seeing Fuse.
HebrewHammer  +   961d ago
God speed and good luck Ted.

You're going to need it.

I would have still been playing Resistance 3's multiplayer if it had been any good, or even the co-op, but they didn't even include public co-op in the game.

Resistance 1 & 2 were awesome, too bad multiplayer for Resistance 3 was a joke :(
WeAreLegion  +   961d ago
Luckily, the campaign for 3 was the best in the series. ;)
Knushwood Butt  +   961d ago
I dunno, it certainly wasn't bad, but what made it so much better than the previous games?
WeAreLegion  +   961d ago
The story. Joseph is a much more interesting character than Nathan. The set pieces, boss battles, and music helped, too. Absolutely wonderful campaign.
ginsunuva  +   960d ago
3's campaign was good, but 1's story made the campaign better.
Knushwood Butt  +   961d ago
Yeah, I played R1 and R2 to pieces online. R3, probably about an hour or so.

Also, the online co-op was startlingly dull, and it didn't help that audio chat cut out whenever there is any loading (of which there is quite a lot).
Ultr  +   961d ago
R3 Online was totally Ok, I don't see whats bad about it?
I played it the most in the franchise.
The Campaign Co-op was brilliant
chukamachine  +   961d ago
I actually preferred the mp for resistance3, better controls, faster combat.

Resistance1 mp was boring for me.

I really enjoyed the mp of resistance2 co-op.



Should be Battlefield open war, with futuristic weapons, vehicles and flying machines all.

Plus smaller maps with co-op and story.

Graphics in Singleplayer should be gritty like the first game, only better looking.
MysticStrummer  +   961d ago
Don't do anything fresh if you want high reviews, Ted. Look at Defiance. It's some of the most online fun I've had, and one of a short list of games I feel is worth $60, but it's being received with yawns from the critics. Conform if you want to succeed.

"...aiming to offer 'something fresh' among a 'sea of sequels'"

That's what he's aiming for--EA keeps moving the target, however.
Imalwaysright  +   961d ago
Is that why you turned Resistance into a CoD clone? RFoM was unique. R2 and R3 were just another run of the mill shooters.
DeltaCanuckian  +   960d ago
R2 was complete trash, but despite it's COD-clone multiplayer I thought Resistance 3 was the best in the series. It hit more of the horror-ish vibes I wanted out of the series, and had some amazing art design. It was just fun to play.
NeloAnjelo  +   961d ago
I will get Fuse because I like Insomniac. However I much prefer the Origninal concept called OverStrike. Such a better name as well!

Once again though the EA concept of "it will sell more if it looks generic and appeals to more" has affected FUSE. I am looking forward to trying the Gameplay though. Hopefully EA kept their hands off that!

Also, no marketing for this game at all from EA.

so if they make a Hannah Montana game you buy it because you like IG?
I love IG for what they brought the platforming gamers with Spyro and Ratchet but if one of their games is briken it's a NO buy!
NeloAnjelo  +   959d ago
I'll buy the game to support the developer. Don't get you panties in a twist.

I never said I dont like how the game looks.
abzdine  +   961d ago
i can sense this game is gonna flop so bad! i like IG but i think they have lost their minds for sometime now with all the broken Ratchet games they released after A Crack in Time.

Go back to Sony give us a next gen Ratchet. IG have to keep doing what they do best cause a weak TPS is not gonna add anything the inustry.

The Resistance Games were cool for the weapons, but the character models were very low budget, and that so-so plot. Graphically (Resistance 2) seemed a step behind the mainstream shooters, and didn't make the most of PS3.

I think Sony may have focused on Guerilla Games KZ series and neglected Insomniac from a marketing standpoint.

Ratchet & Clank never appealed to me. The company are certainly capable, but I fear they are even more lost with EA than they were with Sony.

Fuse is a bad move. They should have created something fresh for next gen and establish a new IP. The best time to make your mark is during a consoles launch window.

It's a shame the potential that is Insomniac never really step out into the limelight...
