GC: Hey remember how everyone said Fuse was a generic game, including the box art? It seems Insomniac Games is taking those criticisms seriously.
If Insomniac were listening to fan feedback they would have brought back Overstrike... -.-
It is Overstrike though! Just a bit changed.
A BIT?! EA is the devil.
EA has nothing to do with it. Their partners label (EAP) pretty much just just publish the games. The whole point of the program is that developers keep control of their products and IP. On a separate note.. I've never checked fuse out. But that's because Overstrike looked terrible to begin with. When it was first announced hardly anybody cared about it. Now all of a sudden some treat it as if it was going to be a AAA title.
In this case EA got everything to do with it . If a game is so transformed aesthetic and spirit wise , based on the remark of a small Pr test pool , who do you think is behind that , beside the publisher ? "When it was first announced hardly anybody cared about it. Now all of a sudden some treat it as if it was going to be a AAA title. " Not really what's happening . When first mentioned we knew next to nothing about it , and saww nothing much to care about . And now what ? do we care more or even less ? Far less , as the game doesnt even provide a distinguishable look anymore
This is not Overstrike at all, they basicaly scraped the game and made a total differnt one to please EA.
Insomniac is not owned by EA and could more than likely get any developer they want to publish their games. Sony has tried to purchase them countless times. They probably went with EA because the contract was better. Any of those on the EA hate train ever think of that? Of course not, because that's saying EA gave Insomniac a better offer than the other publishers and would make EA look good. Also. Why does anyone act like this game isn't the same game as Overstrike? It's the same game with a different name. Both Fuse and Overstrke are pretty generic names, so I couldn't care less which one they choose. You can tell from the gameplay videos that the characters are the same from the stupid looking videos of Overstrike they released last year.
Overstrike didn't seem like it would be all that good itself from the trailer. Just a bad copy of Borderlands.
Wow, how did you get "a bad copy of Borderlands" from OverStrike? OverStrike was(and maybe still is) a third-person action game. It used stylized characters and unique weapons, which are something Insomniac have been known for. Get out more.
From the trailer at e3 a few years ago, it looked like a comic booky shooter with four characters, obviously designed for co-op with "witty" humour. To me, that seems an awful lot like Borderlands. No need to get so offended by my opinion though! I shall ignore your petty and ironic personal attack on this occasion.
Lol if Overstrike looked like a bad copy of Borderlands, then Fuse looks like a bad copy of EVERY FPS game on the market.
Again, stylized characters, unique weapons, witty humour... these are traits Insomniac has also been known for. And they've been around longer than Borderlands.
Sadly for Insomniac a few cosmetic changes ain't going to save it from bombing.
the game look absolutely trash :/ (video)
"Fuse: Insomniac games adds more color to the game based on fan feedback." Good, now add more originality.
too late guys, pretty much everyone has already written this off. Cut the crap, and give us a real new Ratchet & Clank game. A Crack In Time was awesome! Now get moving! *whips*
Overstrike had a personality Fuse will get lost in the other shooters around. I have all faith in Insomniac but none in EA
so is or looks like resistance 2 co op action/game play and people like it its "fun" the shooting does look fun but it take to many bullets to kill a enemy and that kills the fun for me, i mean so advanced tech and they can't make stronger bulets? wtf and but with a lot of pop in numbers and that is also loved by teen (overrated and annoying for me) it almost like seen a RPG pop up points LOL the visuals special effect are nice!and animations. and the maps look like vanquish alike (i don't like them) i bet it will sale ok but it will not be super popular but it will do good enough. come on insomniac make a new amazing IP for Sony more mature I will love that.
I had no interest in the game till now, you only pointed out things that I totally enjoy! Thanks pal! Resistance2 is a great game to begin with. Lots of bullets to kill enemys? THATS GREAT! I had enough of those warfare shooters where you just have to see the enemy and boom kill. BORING! maps like Vanquish? NOW THAT! got me interested in watching the video :D :D absolutely love Vanquish. I dont think it will sell good. And I agree with you that they should creat a new amazing IP for Sony!
i do not disagree, we just have different taste and that is fine. and i did not meant i like random kills, i like kills to be just more logical few bullets to the body one to the head a good logical natural balance with skills needed, and yes resistance 2 co op was fun but it could have been more fun if enemies did not took so many bullets to die.. i will no mind resistance 4 in a more modern era, bring back hale as a clone or maybe have his sister son look like him and have his personality, that will be epic! (i did even remember resistance 3 protagonist name and that tells you a lot, resistance 3 campaign was one of the best ever)
totally agree with everything
lol you actually made me interested in the game ( loved r2) .. I have faith in insomniac ( ea is what worry me. their new game used to have a soul .. now not. it feels more like a generic shooter. fuck EA!.. this is the same like what happened to shadow of the dammed) I loved r1 .. and hated 2 at first but when I return to it .. it was actually amazing and fun! r3 .. hated it and just couldn't wait to get over with it. although the story was OK but really felt empty without hale! he was an amazing character imo and badass especially in first game.. I didn't like how he turned out in r2... all bossy and leader shit, but I handled it. I always felt sympathy for him, he was always fighting alone and the virus drama .. oh god, hale why did you die?! ( If there is a reason to hate on insominc, this is definitely number 1 ) r3 really pissed me off at the beginning.. the tutorial " yeah look .. joe got himself a bullseye.. so cool!" .. where the fuck is the AK?! (its in the end of the game!!).. and why are the humans aren't using their wepones? and the maps are fucking small .. the game feels like cod! get in room, kill all the dudes .. now wait for you buddy to open the next room. repeat. and it tried to be like UN which is something that I didn't like. lots of bullet to kill enemys? oh please this is what I want now! just like Ulte said... the first sign to know the game is cod like .. enemys die with two bullet. allot of bullets >> good sign!
This doesn't look good.
I think some of you should just give the game the benefit of the doubt until a demo is released.
This and Dirty Bomb are going to tank so bad.
I looks pretty fun, but not 60 dollars worth. Thus will get lost in the fray next year, too many other games coming out. Gears of war, god of war, last of us, and bioshock all look superior.
I'd just can this before they drop any more money on to a massive failure. It's pretty much in general agreement that this is as generic as can be.
In my opinion, the Overstrike looked more promising than Fuse. It looked more out of the box than this one. Although I'm still hoping that Insomniac talent will prevail under EA comercial claw.
Dude if Bioware couldn't get out under EAs tyrannical rule over development, Insomniac dollars to donuts wont either.
Im actually disappointed in Insomniac, I mean come on guys, another shooter. Resistance was good, and Ratchet has still got some steam. Make a different type of game.
i read somewhere that EA purchased kingdoms of amalor. I so want this game to live even if EA has it now. Have any of you guys seen sold proof on who owns it now? The bid for it was DEC 3.
they should stop listening to the fans and being manipulated by EA and create what they want!
From a gameplay video i saw on youtube i gotta say that it does look really interesting. Hoping for more interesting weapons than ones that use fuse though and a good story that's hopefully set in an interesting universe. .. And RPG elements ! I think people give it too much smack, afterall, until the re-reveal, barely anyone cared about it. Not saying that the original artstyle couldn't have worked, but atleast wait till reviews start dropping, and you try a possible demo till you write it off completely. I say that as someone who actually disliked Resistance 2 (though i liked the first one) and thought the co-op was.. alright :P
I am excited about this because as they've said it's more like ratchet and clank than resistance
Insomniac needs to take a long nap to revive their weary thoughts. They used to be so original, creative, and fresh at the beginning of this gen but damn they have lost it!
Things like the fan feedback to the change of Dante and even as far back as the opposition to the redesign of Cole from Infamous, these things might make it seem like we gamers want companies to listen to our ideas and make the games we tell them to make. When you really look at it though it is just the opposite. People opposed the change of Dante because he was obviously being changed to a hip emo kid stereotype to pander to the dumb teens and they objected to the redesign of Cole because he was obviously being turned a little more Nathan Drake to pander to the Uncharted fans rather than being kept as a distinct and original character. At the end of the day, what we really want is for you to just stop trying to pander to us. Stop assuming we're stupid chattel and trying to second guess our wants without actually understanding them at all. Have a little damn artistic vision of your own. Before I played Journey I didn't know I wanted to play a game about a little cloth creature walking through a desert but I gave it a chance because it looked new and interesting and I loved it. I'm not saying everything has to be super artsy but square jawed space marine types again? Seriously? It's insulting that they think this is all we can handle in terms of creativity. That if any characters are given anything unique or interesting about them we'll just scratch our heads like confused apes and refuse to play. We're not saying we want more colour in the game again, we're saying have a little creativity and faith in your audience and do something you yourself find interesting. In condescending to this fictional audience of shallow thirteen year olds who love nothing but cheesy 80's action hero archetypes you're creating a game you don't find interesting and nobody else in the real world either. Rant mode deactivated.
This game really stands up for artistic integrity.
A dev has to be told their game needs more color. At least they listened i guess that is better than the other devs that dont.
As much as i loved the first Resistance insomniac need to stop making shooters.
After watching the video at the end of the article the multiplayer mode that they were showing reminds me of mass effect 3 mp.
i remember when "never sleep " added color to R2. it made the game look bad. i hope this change is for the better.
The game look terrible... Id have to try a demo, but right now I have no desire to make a purchase even at $20.
