Slow Down, Bull is a strange one for Insomniac Games

When I think of Insomniac Games, a few titles come to mind: Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the (pre-Skylanders) Dragon, and Sunset Overdrive. The studio's new game, Slow Down, Bull, is not like those -- it's a smaller project for Steam inspired b...

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?" "Moo-oil," like a ...

So here's a cool thing: Microsoft and Insomniac are opening up Sunset Overdrive for Xbox Live Gold subscribers for 24 hours. The punk-rock shooter will be free to play -- the whole game, including co-op -- from 12:01am Eastern tomorrow to 1...

Review: Sunset Overdrive

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 k...

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,...

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 experience, and ...

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

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 th...

You can wear a kangaroo codpiece in Sunset Overdrive

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. Interestingly, these vanity items don't have stat bo...

Sunset Overdrive gets the Mondo poster treatment

Mondo has come out with some of the coolest movie posters in recent times. I've yet to get one, and not for lack of trying. Now, it seems videogames are on the table for the company -- I sense more pain from missed limited-edition prints in...

Our personal game of the show picks for E3 2014

You saw our E3 2014 Game of the Show. It was Metal Gear Solid V. Saved you a click.  Now, it's a good one. In fact, I wrote about why it was our Game of the Show in that very post you just didn't click. But E3 was full of games like I'...

I'm loving Sunset Overdrive's mutant killing arsenal

As much as I like Sunset Overdrive's mix of Jet Set and Ratchet and Clank, I'm less in love with the insufferable punk aesthetic its sleeveless jean jacket wearing lead puts forth. Just because you pin cloth to your jean jacket doesn't make...

Yep, Sunset Overdrive still looks some over the top fun

They gotcha, right? "Oh no, another cover-based shooter!" Nope, it's Sunset Overdrive which seems to be the antithesis of the dull drab shooters we're sadly used to. Presented by Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac games, Sunset Overdr...

Sunset Overdrive's getting crazy with eight-player co-op

Sunset Overdrive is one of the titles that Microsoft is depending on to bring an injection of charisma and zaniness to Xbox One later this year. Insomniac's colorful open-world shooter looks as if it hinges upon being able to provide ...

Internal game jam helped make Sunset Overdrive not boring

E3 is next week and we're finally going to get our hands all over Insomniac's Sunset Overdrive. The latest episode of the Sunset TV show focuses on the early stages of the game, detailing how an internal game jam helped give their new conc...

The rubber band trick in SW:BF2 reminds me of how my friend used to get many extra lives in Contra 3: at stage 3 miniboss w/ the searchlight, place both PCs at the screen edges, put something on the fire buttons, go watch a movie to pass
