Hope you have friends

In addition to the usual show floor booths and Day 0 press conference, Microsoft will be holding a series of events to allow the general public a chance to be a part of the action. You can get a full list here, but the m...
There's the Insomniac I know and love
Man, it's nice to see Insomniac able to make fun weapons again.
With yesterday's news of the Ratchet and Clank trilogy coming to Vita, I have an urge to play Ratchet and Clank. Sunset Overdrive, with its weapons and movement, seems like it'd satisfy my Ratchet urge and Jet Set urge at the same time. Too bad I need an Xbox One.
But there's still a long way to go
With only a few days left in Harmonix's Kickstarter for a remake of Amplitude, fellow developer Insomniac Games made a sizable contribution. The $775,000 asking price is now $7,500 closer to its goal.
Insomniac cites being a...
Today, Max's shirt is peach-colored.
It’s been quite a busy week of news, and here’s Max to shout moistly about it.
Gamers who are short a hundred bucks got some great news this morning with the announcement of an Xbox One sans Kinect, for a somewh...
Please be good please be good please be good
So I probably was the only one on this planet that wasn't hyped on Insomniac's Sunset Overdrive. Last time I got excited for one of their games, well, you know what happened.
Of course it's obvious Insomniac learned from the...
Campaign not playable with others
Sunset Overdrive is coming later this year on the Xbox One, and we've been getting a ton of details in the past week. Insomniac Games has spilled the beans on multiplayer, noting that although the campaign will not be playabl...
And it's all the better for it
This week was the big blowout for Sunset Overdrive, the next game from Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac and one of the major Xbox One exclusives at this point in time. Given Sunset's colorful nature and the studio's co...
Confused as to what Sunset Overdrive's about? You wouldn't be alone. Up until now, all we've gotten is a stylish teaser at E3 and a slow trickle of nebulous marketing materials.
But, this video finally gives us something con...
Not another Fuse, that's for sure
Insomniac Games has properly revealed its Xbox One parkour zombie shooter Sunset Overdrive and, as much as I was into the original E3 2013 teaser for the game, the real thing looks considerably better. The studio captured tha...
Enough news to Baja Blast your brains out
Lots of things happened in the game-o-sphere this week. Kevin Spacey scored the manliest name for his character in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We found out the Halo TV series may be produced in conjunction with Showtime,...
Insomniac Games teases info about characters and upcoming events
The surprise reveal of Sunset Overdrive at Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference got many people excited, including much of the staff at Destructoid. As a brand-new open-world shooter set in a visually rich and colorful world,...
Trophy completionists, be warned
I vaguely recall Sony announcing that it would pull its servers for the Resistance trilogy on PlayStation 3 this year and it's happening soon. Real soon. Consider this your last chance to play those games online (including co...
Now get back to working on Sunset Overdrive
For its 20th anniversary, Insomniac Games is popping out of a figurative birthday cake and presenting you with a gift. It's a music video. And there's a 90's section where people have flannel tied around their waists. And there's an embarrasing rap part.
Just watch it and gringe like the rest of us. That's a combination of grinning and cringing.
An all-out color assault
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...
The Clank of Cthulhu
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is a fairly brief game, but it can be unforgiveable on higher difficulties if you're not careful.
Here are some tips to send you on your way.
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 ...
Look for vouchers in retail copies of the game
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is already off to a nice start with its $29.99 price tag, but Insomniac Games is going just a bit further by throwing in a nice freebie.

'Ratchet could end up on Xbox one day'
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...
Inject this into my veins already
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...
And it's a proper installment!
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 hitti...
That's Insomniac's intent, anyway
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 ...
The cloud strikes again
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...
Sunset Overdrive on Xbone
Cartoony parkour shooter goodness
Insomniac Games' Ted Price got on stage today at Microsoft's E3 press conference to talk about their newest title Sunset Overdrive. Taking place in a "growing world" where new content such as new weapons can be added da...
GRID 2 meanwhile takes pole position
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" ...
Insomniac claims focus testing didn't dilute the game
Insomniac Games is working on more content for its recently released Fuse, but it won't just be downloadable content. According to studio head Ted Price, the team is already prototyping some substantial new stuff.
I'm at the end of mine
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 O...
It's been a long time coming
After being delayed in order "to provide the best gameplay experience possible," Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will finally be playable on PlayStation Vita. Tin Giant has finished development on this portable vers...
