Sunset Overdrive has a ricocheting record gun, TNT teddy bear

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.

Tuesday Newsday: Sunset Overdrive, Xbox One for $399, Pokémon, Snyder's Batman & H.R. Giger
by Max Scoville

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 somewhat reasonable $399, coming June 9th. Sunset Overdrive has been revealed properly, and hot snacks, it looks like a good time. Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire are getting the 3DS treatment, Never Alone looks really lovely, and a new Unreal Tournament could be quite a lot of fun, especially for free. Dying Light and the console version of Elder Scrolls Online are being delayed. We get our first look at Zak Snyder’s Batman and Batmobile, and H.R. Giger has gone to that great big derelict spacecraft in the sky.

Okay Sunset Overdrive, you have my attention

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...

Insomniac didn't play it safe with the Sunset Overdrive box art

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...

Sunset Overdrive gameplay video gives some context to the insanity

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...

Sunset Overdrive is more Jet Set Radio than I was expecting

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...

Call of Duty: Advanced Manfare, Halo with Boobs?, and a Lot of Beverages - Tuesday Newsday
by Bill Zoeker

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, so there has to be boobs in it, right? Sunset Overdrive launched a fake beverage campaign, while Mountain Dew decided to bottle Baja Blast for some reason. We've also had a lot of rumblings out of the world of the Oculus Rift, and seen a whole new side of Disney Infinity.

Insomniac celebrates 20 years with a jaunty tune

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.

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 photo
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.
