64w 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...

74w ago - Today Senior Creative Director Dave Cravens at High Moon Studios has unveiled an exclusive new Metroplex PS3 trailer video for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron below.
To quote: Last time we were here, Tieg (a.k.a. Matt Tieger, Game Director) talked about the epic scale of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, embodied in our riveting story, variety of gameplay, monster bots, and the walking city known as Metroplex.
In this exclusive new trailer, you'll get to see Metroplex in action!
This is a treat for me personally, as I was a big Metroplex fan growing up. I recently visited my parents and even found my original Metroplex toy, which sadly looked like it had endured too many (mostly) imaginary battles, Minnesota winters and stress tests with fireworks.
Luckily, in Fall of Cybertron, the yellowing of aging plastic never comes into play. Instead, I get to control Metroplex through Optimus Prime, and make him do all the crazy stuff I used to imagine - like blowing away entire squadrons of Decepticons with an endless stream of rockets!
Toppling skyscrapers onto unsuspecting enemies (my sister's dolls)! Stomping on tanks and bad guys!
76w ago - Sega of America Community Manager Kellie Parker has officially announced today that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is coming to the PS3 and PS Vita platforms.
To quote: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is a thrilling new racing experience coming to PS3 and PS Vita, featuring Sonic the Hedgehog and a fantastic cast of SEGA All-Stars.
This iconic cast will be competing across land, air and water in vehicles that fully transform from cars, to planes to boats.
Following on from the huge success of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, the characters now have their own unique, transforming vehicles designed to take advantage of the varying terrain.
The lineup on the Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed grid sees SEGA favorites - including Sonic the Hedgehog, Dr. Eggman and AiAi - return to battle against newcomers, including Gilius Thunderhead of Golden Axe and Vyse of Skies of Arcadia.
Many attendees got to play the game for the first time at E3, and chose from one of three available levels: Dragon Canyon (based on Panzer Dragoon), Temple Trouble (based on Super Monkey Ball), and Adder's Lair (based on Golden Axe). In addition to this new track, we also announced that Joe Mushashi from Shinobi will be a playable character in the game.
78w ago - High Moon Studios Game Director Matt Tieger has posted up a new Transformers: Fall of Cybertron PS3 video today direct from E3 2012 below!
To quote: I'm excited to share our latest trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron with you, fresh from E3 2012. And I'm here to take your questions: Optimus Prime, Shockwave, Bruticus, Grimlock, and now Metroplex...we have a ton to talk about!
With War for Cybertron we had to work hard to prove that Transformers games could be good; with Fall of Cybertron we've set out to show how they can be great. Big words indeed. How we back that up is with the scale and variety of the game we've built in Fall of Cybertron. Transformers needs to have a wide variety of unique characters and a rich assortment of big environments to use their transforming gameplay.
We've assembled a big cast of playable characters, each one bringing very unique skills to the battle. Transforming, tight shooting controls, melee, flying, combining, stealth, grappling - we have all these gameplay elements and they all feel right for the Transformers....
