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.

Yeah, unlike FUSE which looked incredibly stupid in the worst way.

Abash1418d ago

More like incredibly generic

ats19921418d ago (Edited 1418d 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.

Webbyy1418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

How you got to get 10 bubbles is amazing..

@Lukas_Japonicus lol yea, it is a bit confusing what he meant..but I hope he meant fuse too. if not what a shame.since we don't really know much about sunset overdrive.

GarrusVakarian1418d ago

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

....At least i think so.

christocolus1418d ago

I think abash was reffering to fuse.

Abash1418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

I WAS talking about Fuse, people are way too touchy O_o

Webbyy1418d ago

@Abash My apologies Abash.

ats19921418d ago

@ Abash

My apologies misread your comment

Septic1418d ago

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

And yes...lets not talk about FUSE p_p

Skate-AK1418d ago

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

gaffyh1418d 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.

This is a perfect example of how poor the comprehension of the average person is...

k3rn3ll1418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

Hmm I wonder what kinda gamers voted agreed to this comment

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

Pogmathoin1417d ago

Luckily did not get the game, but after Resistance, it was tempting....

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.

ColeMacGrath1417d 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...

Balcrist1417d ago

Sexburger.... is there anymore that needs to be said?!?!? lol

mrpsychoticstalker1417d 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 .

GT671418d ago

sunset overdrive look more like opening scene from R&C if anything.

showtimefolks1418d 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)

colonel1791418d ago

They had a goldmine with Overstrike, but then they changed it to FUSE. What a bummer

HighResHero1418d 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.

kneon1417d 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_911417d 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-Back1417d ago

So Sunset Overdrive will be the next flop game from Insomniac.

Cant wait to see this at e3.

True_Samurai1418d ago

Be ready for this Thursday friend it's going to be full of info on this game

mushroomwig1418d ago

Likewise, I think this years E3 is going to be one of the best in recent years.

AngelicIceDiamond1418d ago

Excited to see the reveal blow out at E3

Lucreto1418d ago

Actually much sooner Thursday I believe.

Edge have the reveal.

Finally a game worth playing on the Xbox One. Not like the rest of the trash... This, though... looks incredible.

ats19921418d ago

What trash? The xbox one has had a bunch of good games so far.

LogicLee1418d ago

For the most part, both the Xbox One and PS4 have had crap-all. Just one mans opinion here.

king_george1418d 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

OpieWinston1418d ago

Hasn't played the games, calls them trash.

FlameHawk1418d ago

Sometimes you don't need to play games to tell that they're trash.

Salooh1418d 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 ..

ScareFactor1417d 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

beerzombie1417d ago

He hasn't played Child of Light either, what a shame some people shouldn't be gamers at all.

SlapHappyJesus1418d 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 . . .

HaydenJameSmith1418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

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

TRD4L1fe1418d ago

Im surprised you have 0 agrees. Figured 1 or 2 fanboys would've slapped the agree

corvusmd1418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

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,

@GusBricker below....hahah

beerzombie1417d ago

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.

gameon19851418d ago

and what games does the PS4 have? they are the one with the trash line up so far.

Salooh1418d ago (Edited 1418d 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 ^^ .

k3rn3ll1418d ago (Edited 1418d ago )

Hah.... obviously haven't played plants vs. Zombies. That game is sick

HacSawJimThugin1417d ago

Two good friends of mine bought it within minutes of seeing my is addictive, silly, and fun as hell.
