EDGE - The new issue of Edge magazine features world exclusive details of Insomniac’s colourful Xbox One shooter Sunset Overdrive.
I am a Sega and Dreamcast fanboy so Im naturally anticipating this game, hope it's good since it gives me a Jet Set Radio vibe
Yeah, when it was first announced, I called it Jet Set Radio Future with guns. We can only hope!
@abash Same here bro. In just a few hours we will know more about SO
I'm just excited for vibrant colors. Last generation had a brown and gray coat over most of its games.
I hope it lives up to that billing. PS Fizzie is the greatest mascot ever, he is the ULTIMATE TROLL, in an awesome way.
I'm Looking forward to this title. Show us your A game at E3. :D
Hype is here because of Insomniac Games
You got 5 dislikes for? People don't think Insomniac can deliver?
I think people are reading through the lines, that he otherwise would not be hyped for an Xbox game but seeing as it's Insomniac he is. just a guess
i hope this game is as awesome as it looks. could be yet another must have exclusive for the ol' x1.
This game should be a nice addition to my x1 I'm also eager for quantam break guys. The thing I want on these new systems is better blood we need more gore and when you stab someone it should be blood on the knife that would make games better more detail
Doesn't Ryse satisfy that pretty decently?
Yea it does actually but we need more games with that level of gore how cold would it be if that blood level was in shooting games u barely see blood in shooters I dnt get it you stab deep into someone neck no blood on the knife kinda weird to me
I'm hoping that this will be good. For some reason I find Insomniac somewhat like Ubisoft: often times their titles are hit our miss, but when they have a hit they tend to hit it out of the park.
I would not call most of their current successful games a hit out of the park. AC4 was AC2 with ship battles, don't get me wrong it is a fun AC game that was much better than the crappy AC3. Far Cry 3 was a pretty island that actually felt like it was alive and teeming with wildlife, however it had repetitive and uncreative or unique missions, and had hardly any depth when it came to gameplay which is a big deal in a open world game. It is one of the most casual games I have ever played and it makes Skyrim look like Dark Souls in comparison. Splinter Cell BL was not a hit out of the park either it was received as a good game, but nothing that blew people away. There best work since AC2 has been arcade games (Bastion, Child of Light, Clash of Heroes) and Rayman Legends/Origins. Ubisoft and its so called greatness is something I must seriously be missing because IMO EA and all it crap is even leagues ahead when it comes to the AAA games I forgot South Park but I think alot of the work was done under THQ and a non usual Dev for Ubi, Obsidian
Yes for me all those Ubisoft games you listed are not towards my taste. Heck, despite how much praise I hear for AC, I can't give it a try after playing the bit of AC1 that I did (I quit after the 2nd assassination). Yes I know that was the low point for the series, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. You know, on second thought Ubisoft really hasn't made anything in years that I have really been interested in to be honest. I must have mixed a few games up or something, but looking back on the list of their games I can't find a single one that I was truly excited about.
@dchops AC1 was not exactly a low point it set up the formula and framework for future games which led to the series greatest point AC2 a game that is probably one of the best sequels I have ever played. It took pretty much everything from the first and made it it 10x better, but since then the series has been at a stalemate and even worse with AC3. AC2 felt like a refined experience, had gorgeous visuals, good storytelling with great characters, and loads of content at the time it was mindblowing IMO. Even at the launch of AC1 it felt like a pretty unique experience.
I didn't even know this was a shooter. I was more intreged before knowing this.
What did you think it was didn't you see the trailer. It's a parkour heavy shooter set in an open world.
The trailer left me totally confused bit in a good way. Trailers can be very misleading especially the early ones so I remained open minded, and I still will. Just couldn't help a feeling a little put off when I realised it was a shooter... The style still looks incredible though!
Seems Insomniac learned their lesson from Fuse. We WANT colourful, vibrant, crazy and new. Not grey reprocessed sludge.
yeah i remember when INSOMNIAC released a great FPS called DISRUPTER , for the PSX back in 1996 ! I wish they would release that again on 7th and 8th gen consoles!
Can't wait to hear more about this exclusive.
