Review: Fuse

Insomniac turned a lot of heads when it first revealed Overstrike -- a colorful, cartoony, over-the-top cooperative shooter that looked promisingly hilarious. Even more heads turned, but for entirely the wrong reasons, when Overstrike mutat...

Fuse demo is available now

Here's a trailer for a demo for...well, if you're at work or something. Otherwise, don't watch this trailer and get to downloading the demo for Fuse! The demo takes place midway through the game, giving you a chance to play as all four of ...

Fuse demo drops next week with split-screen support

The general vibe I'm getting about Fuse is that of disappointment. The cooperative shooter isn't what people want from Insomniac Games, and although I feel similarly, we should probably wait until we have first-hand experience with the...

A brand new trailer for Insomniac's latest, Fuse, gives us a better look at the upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 title. You've got technology gone wrong in a third-person co-op shooter, with characters with either super red hair or porkchops. Eve...

Fuse skips competitive multiplayer, opts for Echelon

Contrary to popular belief, competitive multiplayer is not required for every shooter that releases these days. Heck, it's not even required for every AAA game. We've seen multiplayer shoehorned into multiple high-profile games like BioShoc...

Electronic Arts held an earnings call earlier today and announced that Insomniac's Fuse has been delayed to Q1 of fiscal 2014. That gives us a release window of somewhere between the beginning of April and the end of June 2013 now. The four...

Insomniac shows off latest Fuse trailer and screenshots

I'm not really sure what to think about Fuse. I was all about the game once I heard that it was a third-person shooter coming from Insomniac. Then they decided the game needed a more serious tone, but they were also going to keep the ridic...

Preview: Hands-on with Fuse multiplayer mode Echelon

Thinking back to 2008's Gears of War 2, I remember what a revelation Horde mode was. In those days, my online multiplayer rotation consisted of Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3. And while I was never terrible, my just-above-average skill made me y...

Interview: Insomniac on how Overstrike became Fuse

The biggest question on my mind while playing Fuse was "why the change?" Overstrike had the potential to be something wacky, as a game that wouldn't take itself seriously. At least that's what I interpreted from the trailer. Fuse has a shot...

Preview: Your first look at Insomniac's Fuse

Some of you may remember Overstrike, a hyper-stylized shooter that made its debut at the Electronic Art's press conference during E3 2011. Since then, developer Insomniac Games went into total blackout on the title up until a few weeks ago ...

One minor issue that I have with Ultra Sun and Moon is that the Battle Tree doesnt lower your partys level to 50 until you hit the Super The result is that you have to grind through 20 stupidly easy battles before you get to the fun
