Sunset Overdrive bounces to a filthy oil rig for first DLC

Insomniac Games has detailed Sunset Overdrive's first add-on, and there are some pronunciation problems clouding up the reveal. The Mystery of Mooil Rig is the name, and how would one go about saying that? "Moy-il?" "Mo...

Should you decide to buy Sunset after the trial ends, you can pick up where you left off. Also, Achievements can be earned during this extended demo if you're still into earning those.

Great offer and I hope there are more to come.

Review: Sunset Overdrive photo
Review: Sunset Overdrive
by Chris Carter

After booting the game up, it's apparent that Sunset Overdrive is the result of Insomniac Games going back to its roots. Before the developer was called upon to release the shades-of-brown-tinted Resistance and Fuse, it was known for the bright and exciting Spyro and Ratchet & Clank franchises, which were among the PlayStation's finest offerings for gamers of all ages.

Not only is Sunset bright and exciting, it's actually a good game too.

Sunset Overdrive's pretty solid, but I think I'm over it photo
Sunset Overdrive's pretty solid, but I think I'm over it

Sunset Overdrive was one of the most exciting announcements to come out of E3 2013, and since then, I've had numerous people say it looks like a game made just for me.

For whatever reason, I didn't get a chance to check it out at E3 or PAX, and a couple weeks ago, I was giddy to finally sit down and check it out. I played through the first hour or so, and while it seems like a pretty solid game, I came away feeling totally uninterested.

Maybe it's a case of hype fatigue, or maybe I'm just too old for energy drinks and parkour. Maybe I just need something weirder to scratch that itch. Anyway, check out the video for my full thoughts.

Sunset Overdrive shows how live-action trailers should be done

Live-action trailers for videogames can be entirely hit or miss. It's to the point where I'm usually curious to check them out even if I have little if any interest in the source material. Will they be awesome, or a total tr...

Sunset Overdrive is getting two campaign add-ons

I'm not in the market for season passes, but I still like to look just to see what DLC is lined up. In the case of Sunset Overdrive, Insomniac plans to release two campaign add-ons with "new locations to explore, stories to e...

Alcohol-fueled benders are the quickest way to traverse Sunset Overdrive

Go, go, go. Always on the move. That's all that we've seen of Insomniac Games' Sunset Overdrive since its initial 2013 reveal. Seriously, think back. Do you remember seeing any footage of the game where the oddball protagonist isn't running, jumping, or grinding along?

Chances are you haven't, because the developers have built Sunset Overdrive around the notion of motion. Standing still will get you killed, and maybe more criminally, it's just so damn boring. If you're going to let the player build any character they want -- say a cross between an '80s punk rocker and a Cold War-era Russian trooper -- that high-octane approach needs to permeate every aspect of the game, and it begins with the concept of momentum.

Soda scientist shows off Sunset Overdrive mutants and robots

There was a surprising amount of brand new stuff out of gamescom (thanks, Sony!), but let's not forget Sunset Overdrive is coming out October 28. It's pretty fun, though I've only messed with the multiplayer.

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.

Sunset Overdrive's opening cinematic is a staunch reminder that energy drinks are bad

Hey local teens, think life is all about cool dance festivals and energy drinks? Wrong. It's not, and you better get on track or your existence will become one of two things. Best case scenario is you become The Original Par...

Sunset Overdrive's Chaos Squad looks like more fun than just a horde mode

I hadn't really paid a ton of attention to Sunset Overdrive's multiplayer component. I figured it was just another co-operative experience where you hole up and fight off some baddies with your buddies. Rah rah, we've been h...

Insomniac experiments with open development on Slow Down, Bull

Insomniac may have had some big publisher backing over the years, but it considers itself to be indie at its core. That's why for its next game, Insomniac's going to experiment with an open development process, much like othe...
