Insomniac's four-person, cooperative action game Overstrike was sadly absent from E3 2012. What gives? Speaking to CVG, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said "It's a new IP and we want to make it the right game, so they're taking some extra time to nail the gameplay and the quality."

"It felt like we would stand out better later in the summer once we've hit some key milestones and we're able to show off more," he continued. As busy as E3 tends to be, I feel like Overstrike would have stood out just fine in what ended up being a show full of sequels.

That said, they do only get one first impression. I'm already more or less sold on the game, conceptually, so I'm willing to remain patient if that's what it takes for Insomniac to do its thing and live up to last year's promising teaser trailer.

You know, Dragon Age: Inquisition's box art is pretty cool

It's rare that videogame cover art can energize me enough to want to write about it (unless we're talking the oft-excellent fan-made stuff), but there are exceptions. Not to oversell you on Dragon Age: Inquisition's cover, or anything. It's good! Better than expected coming off of Dragon Age II, certainly. Let's hope that rings true for all aspects of the game.more
