Poll: Is Sunset Overdrive an AE, AAE, or AAAE game? (101 votes)

AAAE 24%
AAE 54%
AE 22%

I was playing Destiny beta earlier when I overheard someone say "I hope Sunset Overdrives comes to PS4." And I was like wtf, really? (I didn't say that outloud, I didn't want to ruin team chemistry. But I did say it has a better shot of coming to PC). Anyway, are people really hyped up for game? I wanted to know what SW thinks about this game and what kind of game will it be. Me, it looks like a solid A or AA type exclusive that will probably come to PC at some point. You?

Can someone remind me what AE, AAE and AAAE mean again? AAAE is a perfect 10/10 score, right? That's seems very unlikely

9-AAA, 8-AA, 7-A

10-AAAA

the E means exclusive

These are only based on GS score

And when I'm rich id convince Salma Hayek I'm the man.............. well maybe

So, what's your hype for the game?

I know you don't own a PS4 but you have commented about hype for PS4 games and projected hype about PS4 games before, but you actually own a xbox one so why haven't you stated your hype instead of just leaving a comment?

Be bold like you have been in the past when talking about PS4 games, what's your hype for Sunset Overdrive?

Does that answer your question?

All these AAA terms are meaningless to me as a gamer. They were part of a propaganda campaign to get people back into video-games after the great crash of '83. Back then, however, there was actually a higner rate of game-play innovation so it fit. Nowadays devs just use the term to show off how much they've spent developing and publicising their titles.

I couldn't care less and I don't see why anyone should.

1st party, 2nd party, 3rd party, crowd-funded and indie.

That's all I need to know and care about.

Meh, not sold on this one. Looks like a fun hour then would get very repetitive. 7/10.

Sooo, what about the xbox fanboys (lemmings)?

You aren't going to troll xbox fans and call them out for being cowards for not hyping this AAA like you do/have done with Sony exclusives in the past?

Or does that criticism not apply to them even though they have been saying the xbox line up is far superior to PS4's and have been using this game as their main ammo for proof of their superior exclusive line-up for this year?

I'm pretty skeptical of new IPs. Every new exclusive wants to be the next Gears of War or Halo, but we should all know by now that very few actually reach that level. AAE on Gamespot simply because of the hype (money hat) it will get.

Since you say you know my hype history, what was my hype for Ryse in john_matherson's hype thread?

For sunset overdrive? I always roll the dice AAAE. I don't play safe

I hope it is good because then you might see a version or a sequel on other platforms and insomniac can continue to make games on different platforms. Otherwise MS might buy them and no more Rachet and Clank games.

How serious were lemming taking it?

You know, I really don't care what an objective person hypes this game, but for all the hypocritical idiots who acted like it was a crime for sony fanys to hype their games (exclusives) lower than AAA, it's hilarious to see the 180 change of attitude and mild enthusiasm with SAFE AAE projections for a game on their preferred platform...the same posters who said sony fans were cowards for not all hyping their exclusive game AAA.

Did you know that the Infamous hype thread was 46 pages worth of fud from xbox fanboys griping about the majority of sony fans hyping it less than AAA so they could claim some kind of ownage if it failed to meet that hype?

This is a 100% lemming argument, I am just reminding those posters who used it.

How pathetic those fanboys were, I am actually not doing the same pathetic shit lems were doing in that thread..I am simply calling out users who attacking sony fans/being hypocritical about not all unanimously hyping a game AAA as if every fan should have the same hype level for a single game.

Should those posters not all hype this game AAA+ then?

You were in the Infamous thread, how serious were lems about that shit? Did you ask those guys that same question? NO, however I am not calling you out on this cause I didn't see you joining in those stupid antics. I don't have a problem with xbox fans so you should not have a problem with me exposing hypocritical fanboys, it just so happens that the vast majority are your lem brothers!

The order hasn't proven to be crap yet lostrib so slow up on that bash train.

Also, he is talking about sony games, well the only big sony exclusive to come out this year is Infamous SS and it scored AA so he surely must think this game can do better since he claims Sunset Overdrive looks infinity better.

Just saying.

You do realize that in reality, all this thread is, is a "predict the gamespot score" and nothing else right? I just can't see this as the type of game that gets a 9 or 10 from gamespot.

Thank you lostrib and super600 for the breakdown. I didn't even know it went even higher, up to AAAAE

Sunset Overdrive does look good visually, and the MP "jump in anytime" idea seems cool for this type of game. But I still don't have a clue if the game is fun in the long run, or just fatiguing *blast blast hop blast hop hop blast* Every video I see seems to be the same enemy type for most of the time (those orange dudes). The "Horde" mode is always a fun diversion, but also one where (from experience) people quickly drop out of and you're left with one other person, and it's no longer that fun.

Xbox One could definitely use the immediate help from one of their exclusive titles, but I think this game looks like AE or AAE at the most and sell alright, but far from a sales sensation. I will give Insomniac Games credit for trying something a little different though.

Pathetic excuse from a biased MS shill.

Expected nothing less,

  • You run with xbox fanboys bashing PS exclusive and trolling their fans calling them cowards in their game/hype threads.
  • laugh with lemmings when they made threads about doom and gloom for sony about stocks and selling buildings
  • ...yet you try to play diplomat and come crying to sony fans when they made a big deal about MS closing their xbox entertainment studios, talking about good character and what not.

I am not interested in playing your fanboy deflection game. I am not the one employing double standards and lying about my preference or affiliation to a company/system.

I just wanted to see what your response would be when confronted with your actions handling one group vs another (specifically sony fans vs xbox fans) since you try to pretend that you weren't biased in the in the MS 1800 job loss thread and all.

You failed with flying colors. So don't come bringing your tears to any more cow threads asking everyone play nice when bashing something xbox/MS related hypocrite. You can't play by your own rules so stop crying for others to.

None of what you're talking about has anything to do with Sunset Overdrive's gamespot score. Unless you expect people to just hype AAA because "System Warriorz!11!" everything else you are saying here just comes off as a bitter kid too engulfed in his system warrior business. Do you keep tabs on everyone who doesn't have their throat slowly purring on Sony's dick?

That's my concern, but it also has an 8 player mode as well which could make things a bit more interesting. I seriously need to see more content and modes for the game. I'm still getting it though.
