"I advise you not to use the phrase ‘Sunset Overhype’ because that’s just lazy writing!”
Great to see Insomniac not taking themselves too seriously. I think that attitude shines through in the gameplay Looks fun.
Yea i agree, i'm loving their approach with this game. Looks great, day one
Heh that's pretty cool. I wonder if a review site will go with Sunset Overhype lol.
Cool, Insomniac are really just being themselves and its shining through in the gameplay, characters, weapons, story and the whole entire wacky environments which is why this game looks like so much fun. I see some valid curiosity and speculation, I get that but then there usual console warriors who are looking for reasons to knock this game, sure there are unknowns(story) like with any unreleased game but vids like this shows the core formula of a great game. I mean it's easy to say "its going to get boring", a typical unimaginative comment that can be made about any new IP pre-release but frankly it looks like there is alot more to do in this game than a game like inFamous which this game is often compared to. Judging from the vids we've seen so far I haven't heard any sensible explanation of what else they can do to make a open world game like this MORE fun??? Also there's a 8 player co-op the arm chair critics conveniently like to forget about.
So I never really noticed before. But this game seems to be influenced by Infamous. And that's not at all a bad thing. Too bad I don't have an Xbone. Though this is finally a reason for me to consider it. Assuming the game turns out good of course. However Insomniac has pretty much always made fantastic games......(We'll just omit Fuse from memory), so I have hope.
Definitely influenced by Infamous, but far more inspired by old school Tony Hawk's games according to Insomniac.
Hmm looks a lot like Jet Set Radio to me...
Sunset Overhyped and Suckset TV it is then.
People keep saying this game is influenced by infamous. You do realize that grinding on rails isn't new right? Just a list of games that did it before infamous: Sonic Jet Set Radio Tony Hawk Ratchet and Clank
This is what happens when you give developers freedom to do what they want. Good job Insomniac.
I like how SSO does things different with humor and art style
does anyone remember another game doing something like this for reviewers ? it will be interesting to see how the react to it .
Are you talking about Destiny? Critics didn't like that game very much. No idea why your even suggesting that SSOO will be as bad as Destiny. I might not like the humor because it seems forced to me but I'm pretty sure the game will be fun to play.
i meant a in game message directed at reviewers , i can't remember any other game doing something like this , but my memory could be faulty
Unless he stealth edited his comment, I fail to see how destiny is at all connected to his comment, and why you brought it up...
@Spenok "I fail to see how destiny is at all connected to his comment, and why you brought it up" That's easy to explain. http://www.dualshockers.com... Well he mentioned a message directed at reviewers which I connected it with Bungie telling reviewers to not rush their reviews. The article confused me a bit and I couldt watch the video when I posted my comment due to not having access to a good internet connection at that that time. Which is why I failed to see that it was an in game message directed at reviewers. I apologize for making that mistake because I thought that Insomniac were sending messages to reviewers. I didn't mean to start anything with my comment. @bleeds Now that I understood your comment correctly I don't remember any game including a message like this for reviewers within the game. I'm guessing its part of the humor that they are using for the game. Like the way they handled the narritor and the way the character questions if its in a video game.
I like its direction of "its just a video game so just have fun" mentality. A good/funny story campaign alone will sway me in whether or not I will get this game. The gameplay alone looks like it would get boring after a play through or two. This may be my rent game of the year.
I think the opposite really... Story is probably not too interesting but the gameplay looks fun and that's where the game really shines. Well just have to wait and see though.
maybe unique levels and bosses will help change up the way the game plays. All I see is jump, shoot, grind, repeat.. Which is more than other third person shooters but idk..I think I might enjoy the jokes and commentary more so.
hmmm the cellphone in this video runs on Windows OS..just saying
Just saying what
I LOVE THIS GAME! DaY UNO FOR ME
I love games that don't take their selves serious. Like bayonetta its a game where you pull off awesome moves. Games like ninja gaiden 1 2, devil may cry 1234, vanquish. Games that make you look cool.
i just don't like that game.
That video was annoying, felt like I was listening to a used car salesman! I hated how how he was attempting to explain the more "complex", and ""difficult" combo button mashing and it was simple and easy and very common double jumps and what-not! Game looks fun, but not very challenging.
This game looks great and should be alot of fun. Picking it up at Gamestop day one. Hope it does well and we get a sequel. I wish we had more games like this.
That's cool man, the in game TV changes weekly with news etc, that a good idea.
Winfrey and Insomniac have been very active with the community which is to be lauded. All these Sunset TV videos have been very tongue-in-cheek. I remember Winfrey teasing PS4 and PC players by saying if they wanted to port-beg, they can email them!
At least he wasn't saying 'Get ready to die asshole!'
game looks fun but I'm a tad skeptical on how it performs, I agree it has that hint of jet set radio
damn, this game looks like a lot of fun
"Sunset Overhype" IMO We'll be seeing a lot of that comment when this title releases. I think the game dev see's that and in an effort to get out In front of it put that out there in the msg. A good idea but if this game falls short like so many other games "pretty much every game" that comment is going to blow up!
