Delayed Fuse Trailer Shows New Look in Motion

Insomniac ran into a little trouble when releasing the first gameplay trailer for their game Fuse, citing “legal issues” as the problem. Now that it’s out there, though, the gaming public can finally see the new graphical style in motion, and sadly for Insomniac, the gameplay reveal and mature visuals have not silenced those displeased […]

Fuse Box Art Doesn’t Inspire Me to Want it More

I’ve been really trying to give Fuse the benefit of the doubt. I really have, I promise, but Insomiac has just been making it so easy for me to dislike every fiber of this game. Ever since the mixed reception of the graphical change from the game formerly known as Overstrike, Insomniac has been on […]

Insomniac Pulls the Fuse on Overstrike

A small teaser trailer released during E3 2011 for a game called Overstrike turned a lot of heads as one of the more pleasant surprises of the show. What’s this? A fun looking shooter that doesn’t succumb to the soul-sucking trends of gritty realism? Are these characters able to display emotions other than monotonous manliness? […]

The development campaign for Fuse, once known as Overstrike, from Insomniac Games has been a weird one for a lot of followers.

The game premiered at E3 a few years back as an over-the-top, charismatic action shooter. Then it was stripped of a good bit of its personality, given a completely new look and awarded a horrifically bland piece of boxart.

Collectively, the gaming writers at TechnoBuffalo marked this one down as an effort slashed back by marketing and focus groups. It certainly feels that way, doesn’t it?

The now seemingly generic shooter has just picked up a new trailer that humorously glosses over one of the main protagonist’s major rules. Dalton narrates his sticking points.

It’s a postive video, honestly. In light of all the bland changes this game has seen, the trailer actually gives a hint towards the possibility that Insomniac’s final product might have survived EA’s focus group work with a little bit of personality intact.

Let’s hope so.

Fuse is set to release for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March of 2013.
