OnlySP: The Insomniac Twitter account continues to reveal some tidbits of information on Sunset Overdrive.
Cool a 100 enemies at once!
Kinda makes you think of Dead Rising. I hope the guns have large clips so as to maintain game flow.
Seems like Infamous or Protoype mixed with Dead Rising. I like that it has it's own identity and doesn't take itself too seriously. I am actually really excited for this game, and wasn't planning on pre-ordering it, but I will pick it up on day 1.
actually they said theyre wouldnt be reloading because it messed with the pace of the gameplay and was just a nusense, little strange but makes sense.
Not always a good thing to have so many enemies. Don't like the fact that they are trying to reach a particular number. The enemies are gonna be so easy to beat. They will be mindless idiots. That is not fun.
I'm very interested to know what kind of things the Cloud is doing for Sunset Overdrive. And with 100 active enemies on screen at once things are gonna get crazy.
I'm optimistic about it, and it sounds like insomniac is excited about the opportunity to talk about it in the future.
Insomniac is a pretty upstanding developer. I happen to really appreciate their work with Ratchet. I'm sure they've got some cool ideas for this game and the art style is quite good.
They talked about using the cloud to keep a persistent world going.. Dunno what their final plans are
This game sounds and looks like it'll be even better than I originally thought
It definitly is.
my thoughts exactly :]
We all knew sunset overdrive would be good from the e3 trailer. looks like they keeping their stuff together. it looks good.
You mean now that we've seen it in action? Why yes, I agree completely. :D
Close to 100 enemies! Things are going to get chaotic in that game! All they need to do now is give a release date.
Sounds like a great scenario for the Nuclear weapon :D
I won't be buy an xb1 just for this game but it looks like fun nevertheless.
you commented on this article to tell us you wont be buying the console for this game ? okay... @below No I am not. Just seemed to me a little off topic and didn't need saying...
Are you mad they're not buying an xbox1? Lol
He/she said that to give their position and opinion on the matter. Dont be a lemon....be a rosebud
I get the feeling this happens a lot lol. But as of now, I think I want to save up for an XB1. PS4 is still my priority after Wii U and Vita, but I think now I want to get an XB1 at some point during this generation. :)
Yeah HaydenJameSmith I agree, those sort of comments always sound weird to me. I mean I always wonder if people who say that are trying to convince themselves or us. Either way it says a lot about the game if you have to announce you will NOT buy a X1 for it. lol
Awesome. They were very good at putting tons of enemies on the screen at once with Resistance.
Damn, I wanted to get a Vita in two months. Might have to consider putting my next $200 towards an XB1 if more games as exciting as this one get announced. So many games, so little time :/
E3 is around the corner ya know...
Im really excited. Particularly for the MS conference. I already know Sonys bringing the heat, but I want MS to convince me that Im crazy for not having an XB1.
Maybe you'll be able to get both at some point! I'm getting a Wii U most likely by the end of the year and I think I'll be able to get a Vita by the early portion of next year, with a PS4 to follow some time after. :)
Good for you, its refreshing to see more gamers just looking forward to each platform for what they offer instead of a "us vs them" mentality. It also reminds me of how old and lucky Iam, since after years of working hard I have a great job with decent salary/savings and if I wanted I could buy them all no problem, no waiting, now my problem is finding the time between wife, kids and responsibilities to justify more than 1 of them.
I'm in the same spot man.. It's kind of funny tho.. Years and years of begging my parents for games, only getting systems 1-2 years later etc Yet now I'm 31.. Make enough to buy them all, yet have barely any time to play the one I have.. Lol Despite my run ins with fanboys.. I'd love a ps4 but can't justify it.. Simply no time to enjoy it.. Hoping that changes soon.. I have much love for Nintendo but prefer other types of games to get a wiiu and handhelds are no use to me
Yep, n4rc I get a few hrs a week at least, but sometimes I get so busy I have to put my foot down and tell the wife and kids it's "daddy time", lol they all know what that means. ps4 is great but at this point X1 is plenty for me. I don't like handhelds and I have no interest in cell phone games.
Yea, I think everyone expects great things from Sony already, and I'm sure they'll deliver. Phil Spencer has a lot of pressure on him and he seems pretty confident about everything via Twitter. I'm really interested to see what Microsoft brings to the show. If Halo 2: Anniversary is announced, I'll probably go ahead and make OnlyMP (Only Multiplayer) so I can cover it lol.
At this point, I'd just get both. I have a Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, and gaming PC. My next move is probably the XBO, but not until Sunset Overdrive comes out. Get all the things!!!
"So many games, so little time" - Lol how do you think us reviewers feel?
Thst sounds like an awesome job. You get paid right?
Well I run OnlySP so yes I do get paid a little at the moment. Waiting for our partnership with Crave Online to start rolling in the real funds as the amount of traffic we get should at least make me a rather good amount of money for a college student :)
True next gen
and? PlanetSide 2 have more then 1000 players at one server that's hundreds of players on screen at once nothing awesome about this just saying
That's completely different. This has everything onscreen at once not all of those 1000 people will be on screen at the same time. Plus dead rising 3 can have up to 1,000 zombies on screen at once.
exactly dead rising 3 can have up to 1,000 zombies on screen at once people should stop acting like near 100 enemy is something new this game looks ok but nothing special
Dead Rising 3 has way more enemies, but they are not "active AI". Very few of those zombies have AI engaged, only the ones in very immediate proximity to a character. The "mass" of zombies use a collective AI, so clusters of zombies react together with a very basic "amble over here" or "amble over there" behaviour. Same thing with the likes of Gears of War 3 when loads of enemies swarm about in the backgrounds. For reference, Killzone Shadowfall can have lots of enemies on screen but only 24 can be "active". If Sunset Overdrive has 100 active AI then they are either not very complex, or they are being processed somewhere cloudy...
Yeah this is where I can see 'the power of the cloud' being useful, smarter Ai computed off system. Would also be useful for drivatar inspired Ai, for example enemies in halo learning players game style and acting accordingly
I am so excited for this game. Damn Insomniac for making me get an Xbox!!!!!!
would rather wait for Quantum to get an X1.
Is it gonna play like zone of the enders 2 then?
Sounding really cool! I don't have an X1 yet, but when I do eventually get one, this may be a game I HAVE to get!
This game seems to be taking the gaming world by storm.
A lot of people are mad here, this game will be awesome. I had so much fun with Dead Rising 3 and now Sunset Overdrive!
2 great exclusives without a doubt
Hey guys! care to take a look and comment on my Sunset Overdrive Rap? http://youtu.be/qkNVbzTJTqk
Q: Talk to me about the advantages of developing on the Xbox One. A: This is a big game. There’s a giant city. There’s a lot to explore. We’re pushing things further visually than on any of our games previously, so you need powerful hardware for that. That’s the obvious answer. And I know a lot of Xbox One owners out there will tell you it’s a powerful machine. There are other aspects of it that I can’t get into right now, but we can talk about them at a later date that would be beneficial for us as a developer. Interesting, another secret sauce discussion incoming!
Could be lots of Microsoft money :p
