Sunset Overdrive Stage Demo - Pax Prime 2014
Not only do we get a look at some new Sunset Overdrive gameplay, Brandon Winfrey chugs an Overcharge energy drink.
"Fun trumps realism for us... Lots of Games nowadays are trying to pretend that they're not video-games... We're making a video-game let's go wild" - Brandon Winfrey... what's the word I'm looking for... THANK YOU!! YOU'VE HIT THE EFFN NAIL ON THE HEAD!! :)
Hats off to Insomniac Games for this game, I'm already very much looking forward to playing this game when it comes out! :))
What with GameSpot employees always picking their noses during interviews. No personal manners for any ofttemt
This game bored me after watching 3 minutes. Insomniac has really lost it.
With abysmal sales incoming, I wonder how long this 'exclusive' goes to PC?
If Sony didn't screw Insomniac over buy not letting having Insomniac keep the IP rights to Ratchet and Resistance then they would have this on on the PS4. Microsoft letting Insomniac keeping the rights is probably a breath of fresh air. He even stated that from now on they wanted to keep their own IP's.
I'm SOOOOOooooOOOOOOOoo excited to Play this game I CAN'T understand how ANYONE would Not enjoy Sunset OD.. just disappointed that it didn't make it to the PS4. **Sigh** -No faith in Microsoft-
Insomniac games always made Play station games, so this makes no sense it is just for Xone.Since if this is the case I assume it's safe to say there won't be anymore Ratchet and Clank or Resistance games for PS4. That is kinda shitty after all the years on Playstation. Would not care if they were on both systems.
Looks like Ratchet and Infamous to me, but somehow not as good as either. Obviously this is just a first impression but this game doesn't look appealing to me. I liked Crackdown alot and this seems somewhat similar but I just can't get interested from the footage I've seen. I was anticipating this game too. Maybe it'll change my opinion with some hands on gameplay. ADHD games.
LOL "They grew up on spyro and rachet they loved resistance" Yer the PLAYSTATION Gamers you are going for a different crowd this time around who may not off ever played those games so I find that statement kind off Derp.
Looks fun at the same time not sure if this will be like Crackdown where you are having fun for the first couple of hours then the novelty wears off, I will try it round a friends to find out but you really need to show more then just that same herker boss because we have seen that enough now.
When they were talking about the tone and whether or not "hardcore" gamers would buy something this colorful, the only thing I could think about was what happened to Overstrike/Fuse. I wish Danny had brought that up, would love to hear what they have to say about that whole thing now that we're a couple years past it.
I think they took strengths of Ratchet and Clank, Infamous, and punk-rock spirit of Jet Set Radio to make something that looks legitimately fun. Hope this game doesn't disappoint
Most real shit I've heard a developer say... "Now a days a lot of games are trying to pretend like they're not video games." Well said sir
Looks pretty fun, but one wonders if it would get monotonous, haven't seen anything that looks like it really branches out in the gameplay.
@rasterror Yes Sony could off handled the situation better but Insomniac also have to consider why Sony bought out Naughty Dog and Sucker punch and didn't buy them. I will give you a hint, it was to do with quality not Quantity.
@JimmyThreeBalls They are making a new Ratchet and Clank for PS4 and yes it is kinda shitty how they gave PS Gamers the finger after all these years.
@JimmyThreeBalls Microsoft was more receptive to the game, and much more excited about it than any of the other guys when Insomniac showed it to them. That's why they went to the XBO.
Stuff like this has happened before. Final Fantasy used to be on Nintendo systems, then it went to the Playstation systems. I don't know if it means that you will never see another Insomniac game on a Playstation console, but it sounds like the XBO is a better fit for SO anyway.
@JimmyThreeBalls I wouldn't come to that conclusion - I'm sure there will be more Ratchet games anyway - we already know, for example, that they are remastering the original for PS4.
This simply isn't on Sony because Sony wanted to own the IP and Insomniac wanted to own the IP. MS said "heyyyyyy - we'll let you keep it!" and Insomniac said "deal".
@JimmyThreeBalls Destiny is a PS4 exclusive when Bungie was always with Microsoft before. Everybody is just choosing different sides,
Yes. It does look like infamous to me. Never played rachet.
I keep seeing game journalist talk about the new twist of traversing map by grinding and shooting.
Umm. That's infamous.
@sonyonly4 They grew up on halo and battlefield they loved CoD.-This is more accurate.
@translucent17 So many jaded Sony fans. Game makes Infamous look like crap.
@translucent17 i know right. i have no been sold on it yet
@Gwarpup I assume you are kidding? This is an XBox only game, as they make quite clear in the video
@battlefront1943 not absolutely, but this high jumping feels like devs cheated around something they imagined but failed to deliver
@xantufrog Yeah I thought the same thing. Seems pretty decent. Hopefully its a win for XB1 fans. Too bad its not on PS4. Maybe i'll check it out whenever I get a XB1.
Well Sony should have allowed them to keep the IP rights to their games and they would've had this. Microsoft was more open to Insomniac.
Lol. I don't know where you get your news or information from, but I would find a new source. Destiny is most certainly NOT a PS4 exclusive.
@lrdfancypants no its actually more like a combination of jet set radio and DR3.
The game looks great, some of the boss fights look awesome. 8 player drop-in co-op is also sweet. I cant wait to play it, especially since he talks about how theres downtown areas with skyscrapers. You might even me able to throw Mirror's Edge on the pile as well.
Funny reading half the comments here talking about how terrible it looks. Most are known Sony fans and just jaded Insomniac left Sony.
@translucent17 i always thought it was xbox's ripoff of Infamous
No, it looks terrible and the concept is terrible, and no matter how terrible it is, someone at GS will probably give it a 9/10
@Aleperez75 Agreed. if you like action games and think this looks bad something is wrong with you. 8 player co-op too? Winning.
@rasterror At the same time, Do you think Microsoft are just going to let Insomniac port Sunset Overdrive over to PS4 if they want to do so ? They don't truly own the rights to the franchise if it is exclusive on a platform because that means they aren't allowed to put it elsewhere sure Sequels they can do what they want with but they will have the same issue with finding a publisher and that means they will never truly own anything unless they put their own money into it.
It plays like infamous. I don't see DR 3 people sight besides I guess monsters.
I can see jetset influence for sure with grinding and artistic look.
I never said game looks bad. I think it looks fun. I like infamous play style as well.
@oflow @lrdfancypants I think part the issue is a lot of gamers here never played Jet Set/Grind, so everyone relates it to Infamous. IDK if you have ever played Infamous but this is indeed very much reminiscent of the navigation style of those games, from the jumping to the climbing to the grinding along rails and wires. But, in turn, Infamous draws on Jet Set in some respects.
Main thing for me is that this looks like a great combination of the strengths of Ratchet, Infamous, and JSR - with coop multiplayer!
@translucent17 It's a Xbox game, 9/10 for sure. This is, after all, MSspot
They probably have the publishing rights for the first game but if Insomniac ever wanted to make a sequel for the ps4 or release the first one at a later date then they can. They're under contract for the first game probably but still own the rights unlike Ratchet and Resistance.
Yes it does have jet set grind and colorful art style.
People saying no infamous is strange. Rooftop wire traversal, train track grinding all while shooting enemies on the go.
Also the super power setup and charge.
Game looks like fun though. I just see infamous with color and monsters when I watch videos. There is nothing wrong with that.
@rasterror Yes but I can see Microsoft buying the rights in the future then Insomniac will be proven Hypocrites just like they were proven liers when they announced going Third party then making an Xbox Exclusive.
Yes but they would buy the rights if Insomniac will to sell the rights and not take them away from Insomniac. And how were they proven liars and hypocrites? A 3rd party company has the right to make a console exclusive. Bayonetta 2 is exclusive to the Wii U and that's made by a third party company. 3rd party doesn't only mean making multi platform games. It's an outside company that has the rights to do whatever they want with their IP because they own it.
