The lights are on
Ted Price, president and CEO of Insomniac Games, took the stage at EA’s press conference to show off Insomniacs new multiplatform title, Overstrike.
Overstrike is a zany new action shooter, which seems to be kind of a hybrid of the studios other works mixed with a bit of Dreamworks flair. Players take control of one of four agents belonging to an elite group called Overstrike Nine. Like most Insomniac titles, Overstrike will feature a mix of wild weapons, over the top action, and the art style was reminiscent of many recent GC films. We watch as the Overstrike Nine team used guns with shield attachments, invisibility cloaks, and electric crossbows. One weapon fired metallic looking goo that enveloped enemies and pinned them up against the walls.
Price didn’t confirm that the game would support co-op play, but given the four character nature of the team, four player co-op looks likely. EA will be publishing Overstrike on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Anything Insomniac touches is awesome! I look foreward to more news about this game.
I love new IP's ! This games looks like so much fun I want it.
"Kimbels a pacifist. Calm and cool; like a Buddhist monk." "AYEAHAWWWW!!!! *kick in the chest*" lmao i died when i saw that.
This is definitely the most exciting announcement of E3 so far. Fantastic trailer. I'm really looking forward to seeing gameplay.
Based on the pedigree, I'm definitely interested in this.
At long last, a new IP that really got my attention
They just confirmed co-op for this game. Yay!
the Goo gun reminded me of The Incredibles.
i LOVE the character design and the humour struck the right chords with me... i just hope we can choose the character to play in drop in games... and i want some damned good AI companions...
Just like everything else Insomniac has done, that trailer put a smile on my face. I think Insomniac would agree that I can't give a bigger compliment than that.
Really looking forward to this, although I certainly hope local co-op makes it in.
Look like Borderlands a bit, I doubt it will be as disappointing though; this is on my must have list for sure.
Best trailer all day, so far.
Meh. Need to know a LOT more and maybe play a demo before I'm really interested.
I. MUST. HAVE IT!!!
They said that it was a four player co-op game on the site with the trailer on it.
Intrigued, Looks Not To Bad.
when can i buy it ??????????????
Ack, I saw the very top of the image and thought this was about Mirror's Edge. >_>
Cool looking game, though.
