GM: EA’s released the announcement trailer for Insomniac’s new title: Overstrike.
Can only hope gameplay comes close to the trailer.
on the 360??? edit: ok let me clarify. I always thought insomniac could do some justice to the 360 like they do to the ps3 but because of their partnership with sony didnt think that would happen. I knew they were "independent" but they had stated that if they were to make something (i thought) sony had first dibs to pass. So, I guess the same with bungie and Activision. If you pair up with a major 3rd party company then you can pretty much expect your game to be a multi. Insomniac has done great stuff with the ps3 and even though it is a multi plat game, could do the 360 some good.
i know, crazy right, game developers trying to expand their horizons. super weird
It was announced they'd be on the 360 last year.
Yeah how dare they try to make money elsewhere. Who do they think they are. S/c
i dont know but it reminds me with Team Fortress and thats not a bad thing at all
its a proven fact exclusives are better then multiplatform games ....so can u blame anyone not like that
captain-obvious Yeah that was my first impression as well.
Game seems meh though. Has nothing to do with multi plat.
old news dude good luck to them....ill still be supporting their games regardless
Looks great, has potential to be alot of fun. I don't understand these people hating on Insomniac for going multi plat. I buy their games because (most of them) are great and fun to play, not because they were exclusive to Sony. I want them as a company to do better and expand, so I get bigger and better games developed by them.
Reminds me of The Incredibles but with 200% more guns, at least the trailer Yeah, here's hoping the gameplay is good, albeit I'm not a shooter guy.
It does have a similar art style, and I rather like it. But we need to see some game play, not just a cut scene trailer. And I hope the humor of the trailer carries into the game.
LOL, even that thing that shoots metallic expanding balls that trap you in place, like the one used to trap Mr. Incredible.
Awesome trailer none the less. Cool characters and style and a nice premise. Can't wait for some gameplay! -from a ps3 player-
Yeah, that looked pretty sick. I'm excited.
Looks interesting but would of been nice to see gameplay footage
Same. I need to see some gameplay.
I honestly don't see the point in releasing trailers this long withought gameplay footage.
To set the tone and introduce you to the characters and style the game will have. It's a first taste, not an information blowout.
Haha, thats pretty cool
Looks pretty interesting! Insomniac... that's all I need to know. :D
I will buy this game. TBH, I couldn't care less which platform it comes out on as long as I am able to play it on my PS3. Gamers FTW!!! Haters FTL!!!
Well at least we know the PS3 will be the lead platform.
This looks like it could be something refreshing.
this seems like a fail. I feel a ninja theory coming again. What do I mean? well ninja theory was a know ps3 developer. heavenly sword was amazing, but ninja wanted more success, so they decided to release for the 360 as well for enslaved and well all know what happen. 360 fans didn't care much. ps3 fans abandon it. i hope they don't fall into the same category, but this ain't no resistance or ratchet. it doesn't have what made them incredible.
Only people who would abandon Insomniac were never fans to begin with. This trailer looked sick, with insomniacs classic humor and great past games, i dont see this one being any less amazing.
I agree with beastgamer, especially on the "ninja theory" theory. I don't see the xbox crowd caring too much and I see ps3 fans not caring at all. Enslaved didn't deserve to flop, but we all figured out why it did.
i just hope they don't follow ninja theory's road.
There's a huge difference, insomniac are still doing exclusives for Sony, and they never bitches about how Resistance or Ratchet never made them money, and they never disrespected Sony. Ted and crew knew where there success came from, its why theyve confirmed they are big enough to work on there own IP and Sony's IP. Fanbois just want them to be exclusive, they'll continue to make games exclusives for sony especially with the 16 year love relationship they have with Sony, and they'll grace Xbox and ps3 with their own new IPs its a brilliant move and one that I'm sure both Real Insomniac fans, (not ps3 fanboy) and new xbox players will enjoy.
Ninja Theory were smart asses that talked too much rather than working on making a good game (excluding Heavenly Sword of course) so please don't ever compare those smart asses to the humble awesome and great Insomniac ! So they are going multi,WOOPY DI DOO !? what's so wrong about that ? I liked exclusive more than anything,but I trust in good devs,and Insomniac proved that they are good developers !
your comparison got no real basis imo . For starter HS was not amazing , it was kinda neglected by both the press and players alike ...and NT is not half the studio Insomniac is . The general populace doesnt know nor care about NT's drama story with Sony , they judge enslaved based on its demo , its marketing , and release date . Insomniac has proven itself far more on more games and ip , to suffer the same kind of fate .
lol!. Comparing I.G to NT is a big failure on your part.
Another shooter but at least as robots...
Is the video loading very slowly for anyone else? Also, I don't know if it's just my stupid PC, but the video keeps forcefully pausing when I didn't tell it to. This is starting to really irritate me.
Looks okay, that trailer didn't get me too excited tho.
Why did they have to go with EA though :(
Who would you rather they go with? A$$tivision?
"Do you guys serve breakfast?" Lol, officially interested. It's Insomniac so I'm expecting high levels of awesome.
I really hope this doesn't turn into another generic shooter,I really like the characters ! impress me Insomniac !
please don't be M, please don't be M
This looks pretty awesome actually, will defiantly keep an eye out for this.
hmmmm With no actual gameplay its hard to comment on. Sure CG looks neat but thats about it.
The black guy interested me the most.
The lead guy is a real smart @$$. 'Enthusiasm?'
meh... I am interested more in Resistance 3...
This game would be sick if its a third person shooter, I hope it's not a FPS cuz theres way too much of those.
Looks like they have added a twist of ratchet and clank weapons with coop, and a cool new environment of guns for hire. looks good.
no gameplay but still I like the humor, Insomniac does that well. Looks like they took some R&C and combined it with Resistance to make this game, just need to see some gameplay now.
Seems interesting. Now I need to see some Gameplay, but I hope it isn't a first-person shooter.
Multiplat or not, IG gets my money every time. Its nice 360 only owners can finally experience some of their epic games.
I got like an Incredibles vibe from this game, especially with that black sticky goo material. Is that Steve Blums voice I heard?
It looks to be a squad based over-the-top third-person shooter. Unlike Gears, I'd say you can give commands to squad mates. This kind of reminds me of Freedom Fighters but more light hearted.
I was very skeptical about this, but this looks awesome. Is it going to be a co-op game? I'm a bit disappointed that Insomniac is going multiplatform. I'm glad that a larger audience can enjoy their games, but I just enjoyed them having a consistent system. Now that they're working with EA I just feel like things could get a bit out of hand.
To all the ppl w/ the insomniac hate "They shouldnt develop for the 360" their main studio isnt working on this game its a new 1 they expanded and are working on it on the side. Meaning its mostly a fresh team of devs working on this title w/ ofc the main guys monitoring it a bit since this will be their first game and multiplat. The exclusives will keep rolling out of insomniac and wont change anything on the ps3 homefront.
This game looks good and funny as hell IMO. Talk about a dysfunctional team lol. I have high hopes for this.
Please dont be an FPS, PLEASE !
Wow, That's the first CGI only new IP trailer to ever get me excited, can't wait.
Co Op? Otherwise I wasn't too impressed, however it might be something else to watch Insomniac attempt to home their Ratchet humor to a more mature audience.
i do like insomniac and thier sense of humour. really liked the trailer with some gameplay videos and i will look to get the game but gameplay first
I love insomniac but I just do not get this, I get it but, for me it's a pass. It's R&C style weapons in a more mature setting that takes away all the awesomeness that gave R&C what it is.. I felt like I was watching a new NBC trailer... not in a good way either. Still waiting on Resistance 3, love you insomniac.
Looks pretty cool. I cant wait to play this on my PS3. But i need to see some gameplay first.
