Fuse debuts in the UK charts at number 37

Whilst many didn't expect it to set the charts alight, it can't be of any comfort to Insomniac Games to know that Fuse entered the UK videogame charts at number 37. Our own Jim Sterling said in his review the game was "lazy" and "victim of ...


'New stuff' coming to Fuse, but not DLC

Insomniac Games is working on more content for its recently released Fuse, but it won't just be downloadable content. According to studio head Ted Price, the team is already prototyping some substantial new stuff.  "For you, our fans ....

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...


New Fuse trailer shows that technology will kill us all

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...

Insomniac sets its sights on a May release for Fuse

Insomniac Games' cooperative shooter Fuse will be releasing on May 28 and May 31 in North America and Europe, respectively, the studio announced today. This comes after a delay earlier this year and something of a confused identity; you mig...

Meet the four heroes of Fuse

Fuse is the four-player cooperative third-person shooter from Insomniac Games and stars four distinct playable characters. And you can get to know each one through these four new trailers focusing on each star. You get to see some of their...


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...

Fuse gets delayed to Spring 2013

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...


This is what Insomniac's Fuse looks like in action

This past week we got to tell you all about Insomniac's Fuse, their new third-person co-op shooter. Originally called Overstrike, the new direction of the game is bringing a more serious tone while still keeping the over-the-top weapons. T...


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 ...
