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...

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 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.
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...
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.
Microsoft's finally confirmed one of the worst-kept recent rumors in the videogame industry. Sunset Overdrive's getting a console bundle with that flashy white Xbox One.
The bundle is expected to release right alongside Sunse...
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.
For San Diego Comic-Con, Insomniac Games is talking up character customization in Sunset Overdrive and the clothing options range from "traditional" to "out there" -- way, way out there.
