I'd guess with certainty its a 3rd person shooter/action game, what else do studios make these days? A cross between ratchet and resistance.

I seriously hope not. I actually made a sarcastic joke that it would a be a cover based third person shooter in the thread where Insomniac said they'd be announcing the game this week.

That's about the only way this game could have any less originality.

I love the looks of this game, definitely keeping an eye out for it.

third person action most likely. and it'll be solid.

Agree the name is stupid, but unless they REALLY mess it up this trailer alone sold me on the game. I really love the characters, this was short but gave a good taste of everyone.

Also f yes NOT deathly serious shooter, I like fps but hate most ones right now.

I was originally put off because it seemed a bit generic from the title and the genre of the game, but the trailer had a lot of the Insomniac charm that I know and love.

I love sarcasm! No, really.

I was getting a sort of Incredibles vibe off the trailer, looks great!

Yay, now Insomniac has three scifi shooter franchises! Four if you count Distruptor!

Cover-based would clash real bad with the action they were showing off.

If you overstrike do you miss the target or get a crit? I am confused.

I'm interested at least for now.

So please someone tell me why they didn't hire Bruce Campbell to voice the main dude?

That goop gun was straight out of The Incredibles.
Also the bit where she goes invisible and beats the shit out of them with their own guns. I recall that happening in that film.

I thought the trailer for this was really well done, and had some good humor in it, but as we all know, humor is a difficult thing to get right in a game.

there wasn't much on the trailer but it looks promising.

Doesn't look great. Early to say anything for sure though.

I like the look of it, to be honest while Ratchet games were periphery interesting they never grabbed me. I never aspired to play as a Lombax native to the planet Fastoon. If people at Insomniac Games asked me, "What could we do to entice you to play our games with crazy weapons?” I would have probably described making characters that are more human, but not as far as Resistance.

To be honest, I think even they know Resistance has not turned out the way it should have or as well as they hoped. Overstrike seems like a fresh new start, it works with the company’s ethos of game play better and is a better balance between Ratchet on the one side and Resistance on the other.
