3w ago - Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson shared a new Fuse trailer confirming that the demo lights up PSN on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: We've been working on Fuse, our first new console game IP since Resistance: Fall of Man, for several years now. The wait is almost over - Fuse launches May 28th on PlayStation 3. For an early taste of Fuse, grab the demo - it launches on PSN next Tuesday.
The demo will allow you to experience lethal teamwork with up to three friends online (or 2-player split-screen). Overstrike 9 has tracked the stolen Fuse source to a remote Raven base in Pakistan's snowy Karakoram Mountains.
The team must stop rogue group Raven from carrying out its horrific plan to form a new world order. The section of the demo comes from around the halfway point of the game, so we've powered up the four characters a bit to give you a sample of all their capabilities (and you can level them up further!)
Now, some of you may be asking, what is this game? We'd like to say Fuse is what you'd get if you took the dry humor and lethal teamwork from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and combined it with the alien weaponry from District 9.
It's a uniquely Insomniac universe, one where villains occupy strongholds in exotic locations...
8w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with some answers to Fuse PlayStation 3 questions courtesy of Insomniac Games.
To quote: During a PAX East panel over the weekend, Insomniac Games announced a May 28th North American release date for its upcoming PS3 co-op shooter Fuse.
The game blends some familiar elements of Resistance 2's large-scale co-op mode with exotic weapons powered by an all-powerful alien substance dubbed, you guessed it, "Fuse."
Given the news, we reached out to Insomniac Games President Ted Price with a list of topics we plucked from a recent Twitter call for questions. Enjoy, and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.
PSB: Games this generation have take a longer time to develop, how long have you guys been working on the Fuse concept (via jaydawg6958)?
Ted Price, President, Insomniac Games: We started working on Fuse a few years ago. It's evolved significantly since then, as all of our games have. Thematically the best way to describe Fuse is to take the dry humor and teamwork of Mission: Impossible (the new films, not the old TV show) and combine it with the crazy weapons of District 9.
30w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared an interview with Ted Price today who officially introduced Insomniac's shape-shifting new shooter Fuse!
To quote: In terms of things that constitute A BIG DEAL, the arrival of a new Insomniac game is right up there.
The California-based studio boasts one of the sturdiest resumes in gaming, with past works including Spyro, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, and its latest effort - spectacular third-person shooter Fuse - looks every bit as distinctive.
The set-up is simple - you play as one member of a four-strong squad of special agents, each armed with a high-concept weapon powered by a mysterious alien substance called Fuse.
There's beefy Dalton who wields a weapon that allows him to generate a force field. Naya's assault rifle generates a mini-vortex which sucks in enemies. Izzy wields a shatter gun that freezes foes on the spot, allowing colleagues to step in and vaporize them. Finally, Jacob sports a crossbow that fires molten projectiles capable of turning the opposition into a pile of ash.
It might sound like a rather familiar set-up on paper, but in action it's an extraordinary sight to behold, with each outrageous weapon interacting with each other to create uniquely...
36w ago - Insomniac Games Creative Director Brian Allgeier has announced today that they are lighting the Fuse, a title that was formerly known as Overstrike.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone! After a long journey navigating the sometimes-challenging waters of new IP development, we're proud to reveal Fuse.
Fuse, formerly known as Overstrike, is a third person, four-player cooperative game that centers around a volatile energy source that has fallen into the wrong hands.
The substance, called Fuse, has been acquired by a terrorist organization known as Raven and Overstrike 9 has been hired to track down and stop it from setting off a deadly arms race.
You can play with up to three of your friends, and each member of Overstrike 9 has its own signature Fuse-powered weapon. Play as Dalton Brooks, an ex-mercenary who has a Mag-shield that acts as portable cover and unleashes a devastating blast that liquefies opponents.
Take on the role of Naya Deveraux, who can cloak to flank enemies and fire out mini-black holes that implode its victims. As Jacob Kimble, you can keep enemies at a distance with the Arc Shot and shoot out charged bolts that chain react and fry enemies.
Then there's Izzy Sinclair, who can either launch out med beacons to heal teammates...
105w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 hacker Robo Hobo has released a PS3 port of the FUSE Free Unix Sinclair Spectrum Emulator dubbed FUSE 184.108.40.206 PS3 Alpha 1 for both JailBreak and PS3 Custom Firmware users.
To quote: Here is a version for testing, I'm calling it 'Alpha 1'. There's a lot of features in the emulator, and I'm not all that familiar with the spectrum to even begin testing them all. If you find any issues, or have any ideas for improvement, please post them.
If you are using a USB keyboard post any info about non-working keys (likely on non-US keyboards) and I'll add them to the sdcell key map for future releases.
Please read the Readme.PS3 file in the zip for usage info and known issues.

This is a test release, not all features have been thoroughly tested. Please report any issues and feedback. Issues should NOT be reported to the FUSE project, this port is unofficial and the fuse team will not be able to provide support.
