From Insomniac Games:



all they've shown so far is a countdown and the screenshot.  some people think it may be Overstrike renamed.

It is overstrike, but redone to add more technobabble, and change the generic powers into "edgy" black goo powers, which is fine.

I can't get enough of good 4 player co-op games, so I'm in for this one unless reviews are terrible. Otherwise, if it has at least a 75 I'll at least buy it on sale, higher than that I may pick it up on release.

Insomniac has also always had a good track record of getting basic action mechanics down and entertaining. Their only misstep being Resistance 2, but they more than made up for it with R3.

I will be attending a Fuse event on Wednesday, and I'll most likely have an opportunity to interview Insomniac CEO Ted Price. Are there any questions you'd like me to ask regarding this game (or perhaps others)? I'll pick some out and ask him when I get a chance.

Someone will probably ask it, but I'd be curious to know what their reaction was to the negative response when the game changed from Overstrike to Fuse.

I wonder if the CEO wears boxers or tighty whiteys, or if he just goes commando.

this WILL be interesting,with every game Insomniac has done since 1994 being a PlayStation game(except some Facebook game last year),I actually thought they were owned by SONY like Naughty Dog are

When i saw Fuse in the thread title i was thinking it was RUSE..silly me

I did last night, and didn't particularly enjoy it.  This is probably just not a game for me, but I could see others liking it.  Care to elaborate on your impressions?

Unfortunately, I cannot until the embargo date for my preview. I will say that you should definitely give co-op a try -- the more, the merrier.

Yeah, this seems like something that would be fantastic in co-op.  SP was still pretty good.  Not sure I'm over the moon about it, exactly, but I had a decent amount of enjoyment.

OTOH, it seems like the character interactions and story elements are only hinted at in the demo.  I imagine that might elevate the SP for me.

great piece

Thanks! It was a ton of fun to write, and even more fun to talk to the guy. Seriously, he's so genuine and passionate about his work.

If you like it, please share it on your social medias and tell your friends to do the same. I really want this one to get out there -- I feel like there's a lot of great info here, and I don't want it to die off before it gets a chance to spread.

Still doesn't explain why changing the way a few guns worked required a wholesale change in the graphics.

I just finished Fuse last night. Spent the majority of the time playing with 3 people total, once with all 4 as humans and no AI. Took 6.5 hours on hard difficulty. I do not want to play Fuse again.

This was not a good game. Same 6 or so enemy types (with annoying cloaked soldiers that run up to you, grab you, and you can't get out of their grasp without the help of a teammate), only one-type of "mini" boss and a couple different real boss fights. Each solider gets their own unique gun, but there is a very small selection of other guns to use when you're out of Fuse ammo. The combo effect, when you all shoot the same enemy or use your Fuse effects, is kind of neat, but it's never explained.

The story was weird and laughable.

The game was soulless. There are moments that are amazing to witness. Moments when a bomb is planted to breach a wall and the Overstrike team are literally one yard away from an exploding wall. Moments that include weird animations. Just weird a game like this would come out.

Sounds like Insomniac farted this one out so they could focus on putting out a launch title for next gen.

If Sunset Overdrive was a launch title I think we would have seen gameplay.  I don't think that thing hits until sometime 2014.
