Sunset Overdrive Looks Incredibly Stupid in the Best Way

Hardcore Gamer: Looking like the lovechild of a Pixar movie and an apocalyptic third-person shooter, the upcoming Xbox One exclusive is one of the most interesting 2014 titles we know of so far. (Sunset Overdrive, Xbox One)

Yeah, unlike FUSE which looked incredibly stupid in the worst way.
Abash  +   644d ago | Well said
More like incredibly generic
ats1992  +   644d ago
I hope you are talking about FUSE because you can't really call Sunset Overdrive generic we haven't really seen much of it.

Guys, i think he's talking about FUSE being generic, not Sunset Overdrive....

....At least i think so.

My apologies misread your comment

^^At least you guys apologised. Respect to you.

And yes...lets not talk about FUSE p_p

Lol. They are in full defense mode thinking you are trolling Xbone.

gaffyh  +   644d ago
It's pretty clear that he's talking about FUSE, people on N4G have got very defensive lately. I think E3 brings out the worst in everyone.

On topic - I hope it is good, Insomniac deserve to have a big hit, there games tend to be very good for the most part. Xbox owners, MAKE SURE you buy this game otherwise Insomniac will give up on you.

Insomniac didn't successfully evolve like SP and ND, couldn't manage to enjoy any game they made post PS2.

Edit: figured that's what you meant but it did come out wrong. Fuse did suck. My comment still stands lol

Luckily did not get the game, but after Resistance, it was tempting....
URNightmare  +   644d ago
While the game looks pretty, I don't know what to make of the info I just read. I don't get the humour the author gets to get him so excited for the game. It is still a mistery what this game is about, the mechanics, plot, and how it plays.

It could turn out to be a fun and different experience or it could be a failure and judging from Insomniac's recent games, it's better not to set hopes too high. Better to be surprised than disappointed.

ColeMacGrath  +   644d ago
It's not that much of a mystery since the E3 trailer showed some aspects of the game, wallrunning/climbing, zipline sliding,some sort of zombies, Fanta? shotguns, my guess is this is going to be very close to Dead Rising in terms of gameplay (minus parkour of course). To be honest, this is one of the games that makes me want to get an X1 now...
Balcrist  +   644d ago
Sexburger.... is there anymore that needs to be said?!?!? lol
mrpsychoticstalker  +   643d ago
I see that you are trying to be diplomatic about this game Mr Insomnia_84,

this game looks very different from anything we have seen so far, I mean what other games out there can we compare it with?

Mirrors edge?

"A recent catastrophe in the player-character's city has killed or turned most of its people into mutants. The player has to "figure out how to deal with" the mutants. The game is set in the near future.

The game focuses on "agile combat", including wall running, zip-lines, and acrobatics."

what about that mascot?

I think it will not be a failure, and even though I agree with this article, (looks stupid).... i still need to see more to judge. Insomniac have some pretty decent games out .
GT67  +   644d ago
sunset overdrive look more like opening scene from R&C if anything.
showtimefolks  +   644d ago
hopefully this will have the magic factor of ratchet and spyro

Insomniac really needs to prove it with this game, fuse was suppose to be like this when announced than turned out to be generic. I am a huge insomniac studio fan so willing to give them benefit of the doubt.

still hate it that its gonna be exclusive though(but its business)
colonel179  +   644d ago
They had a goldmine with Overstrike, but then they changed it to FUSE. What a bummer
HighResHero  +   644d ago
Their publisher likes to keep their games pretty generic. Still waiting for some foe-novelty in their upcoming titles. It's a shame what happened to Insomniac though and I wish them the best.
kneon  +   644d ago
Overstrike was one of my most anticipated games, then they turned it into Fuse and I completely lost interest. Now this game seems to have gone too far in the opposite direction from Fuse.
Dee_91  +   643d ago
article's pretty corny, and he's trying too hard.The game how ever looks awesome.Love the art direction.Hopefully see some gameplay at e3.
Back-to-Back  +   643d ago
So Sunset Overdrive will be the next flop game from Insomniac.
TD_hastetheday  +   643d ago
It looks that way.
christocolus  +   644d ago
Cant wait to see this at e3.
True_Samurai  +   644d ago
Be ready for this Thursday friend it's going to be full of info on this game
christocolus  +   644d ago
mushroomwig  +   644d ago
Likewise, I think this years E3 is going to be one of the best in recent years.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   644d ago

Finally a game worth playing on the Xbox One. Not like the rest of the trash... This, though... looks incredible.
ats1992  +   644d ago
What trash? The xbox one has had a bunch of good games so far.
LogicLee  +   644d ago
For the most part, both the Xbox One and PS4 have had crap-all. Just one mans opinion here.
king_george  +   644d ago
Theres a couple good games but nothing really great yet. Thats why i havent jumped to next gen yet. The games just arent there for me andi imagine a few others
OpieWinston  +   644d ago
Hasn't played the games, calls them trash.
FlameHawk  +   644d ago
Sometimes you don't need to play games to tell that they're trash.
Salooh  +   644d ago
It's true but you are judging this game based on what ?. We didn't see the gameplay yet :P . I'm not a fan of X1 but i acknowledge this and never judge a game until i'm certain ..
ScareFactor  +   644d ago

not true. Most people think Ryse is trash but it is actually a good game in my opinion. The story and visuals are great. Xbox One and PS4 both have a lot to offer
beerzombie  +   644d ago
He hasn't played Child of Light either, what a shame some people shouldn't be gamers at all.
SlapHappyJesus  +   644d ago
Xbox One has a decent list of solid titles for as young as the system is, actually. Opinions are just that, but calling the library trash is rather reaching . . .

Exactly... I've been happy with the games available atm.

Lee, sounds like you're burnt out on gaming. Maybe give it up or at least take a break for a bit. There are a TON of good/great games out now, and there looks to be a ton on the horizon as fact I feel that now and in the close future is the best time to be a gamer in the 15 years I've been one. To each their own, but I simply can't see how you can believe that.

Either way, THIS game looks awesome, and like the title says, it looks so stupid that I honestly can't put my finger on why I want to play it so bad....kinda like Garden Warfare,

You are right you cannot just play games you must have other interest. Read a book go out side make a baby do something. If all you do is play video games they will seem all the same and generic.
gameon1985  +   644d ago
and what games does the PS4 have? they are the one with the trash line up so far.
Salooh  +   644d ago
We don't know anything that indicate that this game is good or not let a lone being great. Just wait for more news.

However , i think Gears and Quantum break looks promising ^^ .

I hate Insomniac for making have to get an Xbox One...they're just such a good developer...aside from the awful Fuse game...but I have a feeling that was only bad because they were creatively strained by EA

Microsoft seems like they're gonna let them do something completely off the deep end which is PHENOMENAL. That's how we got Spyro, Resistance and Ratchet.
xx4xx  +   644d ago
Wow I haven't seen much on Sunset Overdrive, one of the teaspoons I'm excited is because of Insomniac.

Loved the Resistance games.

Used, yeah.

That's the only way I'm buying one if ever Shenmue III becomes an Xbone exclusive.

Do we know what king of gameplay this will be? With the trailer I can bet this will a on rail shooter, probably kinect enabled or exclusive.

did u mean "kind"? it's supposed to be an open-world third person shooter

I'm sorry but this game is suppose to be one of the xb1 big exclusives but it just doesn't look all that to me especially the graphics but hey ya can't judge without seeing game play but on second thought xb1 fanboys where criticizing the order after seeing little to no game play so ya!!!! idk

Transporter47  +   644d ago
Still hate the fact that Insomniac basically said were doing Multiplat oh wait here is an exclusive -.-. I love them but Fuse was horrible because they chose the wrong publisher. I want to see more of this game although i don't got an X1. Still debating on getting one.
Gamer666  +   644d ago

Transporter47  +   644d ago
That's not it. Its basically a developer like Bungie just making a PS4 exclusive and how wrong that would be. Now IF they are going to go multiplat go, otherwise its stabbing your fans on the back. Insomniac shouldn't have done this game as an exclusive because as a fan since the PS1 era i feel betrayed. I wouldn't feel as betrayed if they did it multiplat and specially they say were not doing exclusives anymore.... which they did say.
Funky Town_TX  +   644d ago
Insomnia don't owe you sh8t. They have bills to pay just like I do. If making games for PS only did not pay the bills then they have to move around. If a game is good then buy it. Who cares what console its on. Once the X1 gets cheaper and I get some extra cash I will get one.
Transporter47  +   644d ago
So are you saying the people that purchased their products and supported them all this years are nothing? Also leaving your fanbase out is stabbing us in the back. We don't care if you go multi-platform we just want to play it where we can and where we always have.

im guessing sony has never bought a 3rd party exclusive, ppl on here need to grow up, its on xbone not ps4, get over it, o and qtes can be innovative. lol
ger2396  +   644d ago
So thats the freedom they wanted? To go exclusive to a consloe with a smaller install base? I guess Microsoft paid them oodles of money. Either way its about integrity. Its fine that they went multiplatform, but don't lie about the reason for doing so. Then turn around and go exclusive. Anyway, hopefully this game turns out great for Xbox fans.

@Transporter47 You sound incredibly jealous and butthurt.
Funky Town_TX  +   643d ago
I never said that their fans are nothing. If you love this developer so mush then buy the game. The game industry is a business. You fanboys are so over dramatic. Bungie is one of my fav dev. If they made an exclusive game for Sony after leaving M$ I would buy the console to play there game. If this dev was not bound by a contract then they can move on and do what they want. I love how people put so much emotions into stuff and add extra meaning to things. I knew you guys would be butt hurt over this.

vega275  +   644d ago
@ Aragon

Of course not. you only lose your way when you do business with M$. Cuase $ony never ever funds 3rd party exclusives or pay for DLC.

Besides $ony is the light that guides all devs. \s
ShinraE5  +   644d ago
The X1 has already delivered some amazing gaming experiences for me and this (as well as Quantum Break) are examples of good times to come.
