Insomniac games, the ones who are behind Ratchet and Clank, has teamed up with (get ready for this one) EA for a new first person shooter. Oh boy! Here’s the announcement trailer for Fuse, which before the EA takeover was supposed to be a sequel (or something) to Overstrike.
I guess I’m going to review this, since I haven’t done it in a while. But before I watched this video I saw a few comments in the YouTube comments section that show the true distaste for Electronic Arts, AKA the 2012 Golden Poo Award winners. I would like to start off with a few excerpts from the comments before playing this video. WARNING! These are YouTube comments. You know how they get, but I’ll censor the dirty parts.
“Another boring shooter which will go almost completely unnoticed. You had something interesting and eye catching with Overstrike and now… meh. Good luck trying to sell any copies.”
The above quote was one of the civil ones. But, now, POUNCE!
“nice f**king job EA. first you take our bioware, now you take our insomniac games. I hope you guys are happy.”
“f**k EA -.-“
Not only that, this trailer has 406 likes and 703 dislikes. So…Let’s see what the people are all bitching about. Show me that beautiful bean footage!
This looks…Mass Effect-y. That’s not a bad thing, though. This game looks…interesting. It’s a first person shooter, but it’s one of those rare games that looks generic from the beginning but, then, builds up to something cool. I’m not comparing this to Gears of War. Gears was one of those games that revolutionized FPS’s with the aliens and the guns and the chainsaw attachments, Fuse has the chance to do something cool here and, honestly, I like where this is going.
Even though most of these people dislike what they see because “EA is involved” needs to realize the company that EA has purchased and not worry about how bad the game is going to be because of that. Let’s face it, take EA out of the equation and what do you have? You have a pretty cool looking futuristic FPS on our hands. Oh, did I mention that Insomniac has never made a shitty game yet? Ratchet and Clank, Spyro and Resistance are all awesome franchises done by Insomniac games! They, unlike some gaming companies who will not be named *cough* Naughty Dog *cough*, haven’t failed.
Also, 1:07 is where I felt a little part of my brain explode. Mechs. Oh joy. Who doesn’t love mechs?
Anyways, this is the first trailer of the new game. It will be interesting to see the trailers to come. But, as of right now, it looks…good…not great.
What are your thoughts of Fuse? Would it be better with or without EA…AND WHY?! Leave it in the comments below.
