Gimme now

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... read

Insomniac celebrates 20 years with a jaunty tune


Now get back to working on Sunset Overdrive
Mar 25
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. read
