This looked better as overstrike I thought.

Now this is new.

Colour me the least interested colour.

Posted by Korolev

OH JESUS. What have they done to this?

Posted by justthekicker82

those weapons actually seem pretty interesting

Posted by evanbower

I want this game... but I really don't want a Wii U. So....

Posted by Lava

I'm excited for this game. Even if they have taken it in a more serious direction it still looks like it's gunna be kick ass.

Posted by gelatinabomination

This makes me really sad.

Posted by MasonL87

Looks neat, but I still hope we see some of Overstrike's humor shine through.

Edited by Abendlaender

I don't like the shift from a the cartoony and humorous Overstrike to the dark, gritty Fuse.

At least that is the feeling I got from watching this trailer...might be completely wrong but...I don't know, this just doesn't seem very interesting

It's like they saw the success of Borderlands art switch and went COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!

Posted by dekkadekkadekka

Yeah this game is entirely dead to me now.

Posted by RetroVirus

I did prefer the earlier artstyle.

Posted by Leosol

wow...looks like shit...good job ea

Posted by Luddite

It's possible this was purely trying to showcase gameplay, but the character of Overstrike was far more interesting to me.

Posted by QKT

well this looks terrible.

Generic Shooter 101

Posted by JetForceGemini

Should have called it Army of Four so they could tie it into EA's hit series.

Posted by adam1808

What happened to the insomniac charm of the first trailer? I'm going to watch some qwark moments to make myself feel better

Posted by OriginalYellow

This was a really really really exciting project when it was Overstrike...

"In addition to gritty-fying it, marketing recommends that we re-adjust certain visual parameters to capitalize on key demographics, and expand on possibly synergistic ventures with other EA Enterprises. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll put on my ray-bans, slick my hair back with a gallon of hair gel, making a sexist comment to your secretary while I saunter back to my luxury vehicle to do a line of coke! Also, if I don't like what I see the next time around, you programming geeks are so fired!"

And with that, Mr. Corporate takes his leave, satisfied at ruining yet another artistic vision. His eyes moisten, his lips tremble at the thought of all the money he could earn, all the map-packs he could release! Maybe, he thinks, he salivates, maybe this game will be the next call of duty! On the way out, he is sure to kick a poor orphan boy down the stairs, strategically placed there specifically so he could kick him down the stairs.

So this is what happened to the Co-Op in Resistance 2... Okay, Insomniac. You've piqued my interest.

This. So much this.

I was interested before, not so much now. The guns look wacky and fun but that art style is just boring. And kinda ugly.

Not going to lie, my interest in the game went the way of the earlier look.

Posted by RE_Player1

Man as someone looking forward to the style that initial reveal trailer gave us I can't help but be disappointed.

Posted by Xpgamer7

It seems like a neat mechanic but I loved the Overstrike trailer so much more. When I saw the EA logo I was a bit worried, now...

Edited by Gruff182

I thought you guys were being the typical negative gamer asshole types, but I just re-watched the old Overstrike trailer and Yeah... Its pretty sad that they made it more 'real'.

I'm happy for the extreme violence, but It'll be much better with extreme violence and the original artistic direction. TF2 is pretty good.

Posted by Maitimo

This is really depressing to watch, honestly. The initial trailer had far, far more going for it.

Personality successfully removed

Posted by LarryDavis

Uhhhhh. Well, it looks more interesting than Resistance. I guess.

Posted by UricTheOddball

Really sad to see the original look get removed for something that looks like a cross between Battlefield and CoD. May still end up being a great game, but my interest in it is pretty much gone.

Posted by MachoFantastico

So sad to see Insomniac Game doing this, what happened to the character? :(

Did you play Resistance 3?

As someone who had absolutely no interest in the first and didn't enjoy the second, 3 was an incredible game from start to (not quite) finish.

Seriously, that it probably one of the most interesting shooters in years.

Posted by chilipeppersman

@Morningstar: ya me too. what is this generic bs?

Posted by Orestes

Sooo.. they changed it from something colorful and fun-looking to generic looking shooter 2506? (well, aside from the wepons though)

Edited by Seppli

Who killed the colors? Upped the contrast? Who? Seriously. This has got to stop. Gritty isn't a trend anymore, it's a fucking decease.

Here's a challenge. Allow your developers to make a game that's both dark and brutal - while being flippin' colorful and humorous too!

Just look at Halo! It's all the things you want your games to be, and it's fucking colorfur, and has personality beyond teenage Angst. Gosh!

Posted by RE_Player1

@GetEveryone: I agree. I found Resistance 1 and 2 to be fun distractions but 3 was a fantastic game in all aspects.

Posted by GoodAssLettuce

What happened to Overstrike, that actually looked cool and original. This just looks like a generic 3rd person shooter even with the crazy ammo.

I hear the humor's still in. It's just gonna be darker humor than usual.
Posted by BLKZOMBIE

Meh...more third person shooting with more gimmick.

Posted by Sonny009

this game lack all the style and humor of the old trailer. its sad to see that overstrike has become this.... generic... slop. thank you EA.

Posted by GERALTITUDE

Ugh. Are you kidding me? That was a long, boring-ass minute thirty.

It feels to me like they pussed out of the old look based on some marketing statistics BS about how their first multi-platform game needs wide appeal or whatever.

Actually, yes, and I do agree. I had pretty much the same thing, I hardly played any of 1 or 2, but liked 3. But overall, that series is Capital-B Bleh. 3 brought a lot of R&C-type weapon wackiness to it. Oddly, that seems missing from Fuse.

Posted by revel

Insomniac. You listened to EA....?

Woops!

Posted by Shadowjester

I haven't seen a reaction like this since Cole was given some hair and a different voice for Infamous 2 :)

Also I am disappointed as well. I really like the humor that seemed to inundate the previous Overstrike trailer.

Man, I wish everyone wrote comments like you

This feels to me like they took the "Deadly Descents" juice out of SSX and instead of throwing the syringe away they just wiped it off with a tissue and force-injected Insomniac with it

WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO IMPRESS, EA? VIDEO GAMES ARE FOR NERDS NGAAAAAAA

Posted by connerthekewlkid

@Korolev: thanks EA

Posted by connerthekewlkid

@Sonny009: automatically blame EA even though insomniac said it was there personal choice? @game forum logic

Posted by kennybaese

So, everything I've read about the co-op mechanics and things in place in this game has me really kind of excited for it. I've always enjoyed playing co-operative shooters. That said, the loss of Overstrike's art style is kind of a bummer.
