  • News Insomniac Games Sticking to Its Guns, Plotting Plenty More Fuse

    Hoping to light a spark

    Despite being hit by a tirade of middling reviews, Insomniac Games is aiming to stick with its fledgling Fuse franchise. Writing on the company’s official website earlier today, a candid Ted Price admitted that the developer is aware of the negative response to the title – but the studio’s going to stick with the...

  • Store Update 7th May 2013 (North America)

    Spark up

    After several strong updates, it was only a matter of time before expectations came crashing down to Earth. This week’s North American PlayStation Store update is so flat that we’re struggling to pick out a highlight. We suppose that the demo for Insomniac Games’ upcoming Fuse is interesting, right? There's certainly nothing else...

  • News Fuse Demo Sparks from 7th May on the PlayStation Store

    Final countdown

    Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac Games will give you the opportunity to put its first multiformat project Fuse through its paces next week. Starting from 7th May, you’ll be able to download a demo for the title, which features single player, four-player, and split-screen co-op modes. You’ll have the chance to put all four...

  • News Insomniac Hopes to Light a Fuse with Thumping New Trailer

    Remember this game?

    Fuse is definitely still a game. Insomniac Games’ first multiplatform endeavour has been hovering under the radar ever since it got delayed earlier in the year, but the developer will be hoping that this new trailer pushes the title back into the spotlight. It’s certainly better than previous videos for the co-op shooter –...

  • News Insomniac Games' Fuse Sparks from 28th May in North America

    Overstrike a light

    Insomniac Games’ first multiplatform effort Fuse will merge with store shelves on 28th May in North America and 31st May in Europe. Pre-ordering the co-operative shooter will reward you with unique armour and weapon skins for each of the game’s characters, in addition to a 'Quickdraw Team Perk' that increases the damage dished...

  • News EA Games Fires Insomniac's Fuse into the Spring

    Reloaded schedule

    The handful of you looking forward to Insomniac Games’ divisive Fuse will be forced to wait a few more months, as the title has been delayed. EA Games confirmed the news during an earnings call earlier this evening, stating that it will now launch between the beginning of April and the end of June in 2013. The co-op shooter was...

  • News Insomniac Games Blows a Fuse with Brand New Trailer

    Keep your beak out

    We know people are eager to throw Insomniac Games’ upcoming Fuse under a bus, but we reckon that this brand new trailer is solid. It’s got guns, it’s got laughs, and it’s even got some daft facial expressions. We suppose the only thing that it hasn’t got it is that awesome original art direction everyone seemed to love...

  • News Fuse Fashions a Handful of Pre-Order Bonuses

    Keeping up appearances

    Those of you eager to lend your services to Overstrike 9 will be rewarded with a handful of in-game extras. Pre-orders for Insomniac Games' upcoming Fuse will be recognised with four Hyperion Prototype Agent armour skins, four Hyperion Prototype weapon skins, and a Quickdraw team perk which enhances your squad’s one-handed...

  • News Insomniac Games' Ted Price Talks Fuse for 18 Minutes

    Turning the tide

    Insomniac Games is not used to being met with cynicism when it announces a new project, but that’s exactly what it faced when it re-revealed Fuse earlier this year. Boasting a more generic art-style than its conceptual predecessor Overstrike, the game was not well received. Fortunately, the former Sony exclusive developer is...

  • News Insomniac Games Lights Up First Fuse Trailer

    Hmm

    We adore Insomniac Games, but we can’t seem to muster much enthusiasm about its latest project, Fuse. It’s not the game’s multiplatform status that’s getting us down – moreover it’s the title’s complete lack of identity. As this debut trailer demonstrates, the third-person shooter couldn’t possibly look any more soulless. We...

  • News Insomniac Games' Overstrike Becomes Fuse

    Amped up

    Insomniac Games has renamed its debut multiplatform project to Fuse. The title – which debuted at last year’s E3 as Overstrike – has been overhauled since its initial unveiling. A new screenshot is embedded to the right. Gaffer Ted Price confirmed the news during a PAX Prime keynote earlier today. He pointed attendees to Fuse’s...

  • News Insomniac Taking "Extra Time" to Nail Overstrike's Gameplay

    In the oven

    One of the games conspicuously absent from this year’s E3 was Insomniac Games’ upcoming Overstrike. The four-player co-op shooter was announced at last year’s event under the EA Partners program, but has been hiding in the shadows ever since. Speaking with CVG, EA Labels gaffer Frank Gibeau explained that the delay was due to...
