Microsoft says Sunset Overdrive's coming in 2014

When Microsoft bombarded us with a barrage of upcoming games at its 2013 E3 press conference, one of the titles that stood out was Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive. Maybe it was because of the bright color palette, maybe it...

Review: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus
by Chris Carter

For whatever reason, the Ratchet & Clank series never really grabbed me during the PlayStation 2 era. Maybe I was spending too much time playing Jak and Daxter (or perhaps I was adverse to games with ampersands in their titles) and the million other mascot platformers at the time, but it took me quite a while to get into it.

Once I did however, I found out I was missing quite a bit. Over the years I've seen the Ratchet series acquire more and more outstanding titles, and Into the Nexus is no exception.

Free Quest for Booty with Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

Insomniac: 'No plans for Sunset Overdrive on PS4'

After petitions, clamoring, and general unrest from PlayStation fans, Insomniac has taken to the web to explain that Sunset Overdrive is still very much an Xbox One exclusive. To clarify, Insomniac's Tim Salvitti states, "Pet...

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus sure is colorful

It may not be coming to PlayStation 4, but you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise after looking over some of these new Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus screenshots. Funny how much of an impact a strong art direction can ha...

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus announced for PS3
by Jordan Devore

As many of you guessed, the teaser from this morning was indeed for a new Ratchet game. That title is called Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Coming off of All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault, the new installment is hitting PlayStation 3 later this year and is said to be a return to the series' roots -- exactly what the majority of us wanted, in other words. And exactly what Insomniac Games needed as well. Sorry, Fuse.

"We're excited to announce that Ratchet and Clank are returning this year with an all new original single-player epilogue to the Future games," writes community lead James Stevenson. "Under the creative direction of Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time creative director Brian Allgeier, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is a story-driven platform adventure, with the humor and heart that make the franchise so beloved."

Look for the game in stores and on PlayStation Network at a price point of $29.99. Insomniac promises that this'll be its "biggest downloadable Ratchet & Clank game yet."

Sunset Overdrive has an offline single-player mode

While we've only really seen a conceptual trailer for the eye-catching Sunset Overdrive, I'm hopeful this will be a return to form for developer Insomniac Games. It's post-apocalyptic, but not in the usual drab way. Speaking ...

Sunset Overdrive's Xbox One exclusivity explained

In retrospect, if there was one game I would've liked to hear more about at E3, it was Insomniac's Sunset Overdrive. The vibrant open-world shooter was a standout title at Microsoft's press conference early last week and, unf...

Fuse debuts in the UK charts at number 37

Whilst many didn't expect it to set the charts alight, it can't be of any comfort to Insomniac Games to know that Fuse entered the UK videogame charts at number 37. Our own Jim Sterling said in his review the game was "lazy" ...

Review: Fuse photo
Review: Fuse
by Jim Sterling

Insomniac turned a lot of heads when it first revealed Overstrike -- a colorful, cartoony, over-the-top cooperative shooter that looked promisingly hilarious. Even more heads turned, but for entirely the wrong reasons, when Overstrike mutated into Fuse -- a new and toned down version that took itself more seriously and, to be quite fair, looked considerably less interesting. 

While the cynical among us saw Overstrike as yet another victim of the heavily focus-tested, leader following, perpetually terrified mainstream game industry, Insomniac worked hard to assure gamers Fuse would be as exciting and amusing as the original incarnation promised. 

I wish I could say we were wrong and Insomniac was right. I can't. Fuse is everything we expected ... and less.

Why Insomniac decided against making Resistance 4

Although Insomniac Games finished its work on the Resistance series with Resistance 3, that didn't stop Burning Skies from happening, unfortunately. It's possible (plausible, even) that another studio will take on the franchi...
