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.

Looks awesome I can't wait to get more details!
Looks fun. Maybe it could replace Borderlands-- I've beaten that game with my friends far too many times...
This looks cool, but coop will have to be there for it to be a must-buy for me.
Now I'll have a chance to play one of Insomniac's games, I can't wait!!
awwww, i had hoped it was an exclusive.
Very excited for this game. The humor, characters, and setting seemed to fit really well together so I can't wait to see what Insomniac does with it.
Insomniac delivers classic games and it wouldn't surprise me if they do it again.
I was hoping to see something different from them, but they do a fine job of making weird weapons work so I can't say I'm actually disappointed.
Good trailer. Terminator meet the Incredibles!!
THis looks truly great. Really exciting.
It's new and from insomniac...it's gonna be a keeper that's for sure
That's Nolan.. right? I'm pretty sure that's him. That's gotta be. I mean... it is, right? Can somebody confirm!?
Anyway, great trailer. I can't wait for gameplay. Gotta love Insomniac.
Not sure why, but it kind of reminds me of Brink, except it should be a finished/polished game by the time it ships, unless somehow Bethesda gets a hold of it.
I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW.
YOU THINK THE CAPS LOCK MAY GIVE SOME INDICATION OF THE EXCITEMENT LEVEL BUT I ASSURE I AM BEYOND THAT.
everbody seem to be talking about thsi and ashame i didn't no what it was, but after wath the trailer it was really comical and awsome as well ;D i'll be looking out for this now ^_^
I'm hoping that this will have drop in drop out co-op, at least that is what it looks like, it looks pretty cool to me.
Insomniac never disapoints, so this should be amazing!
If it has co-op, I'll probably pick this one up.
