The lights are on
In case you missed it, Insomniac streamed over half an hour of their upcoming four-player cooperative title Fuse last week. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Following the gameplay demonstration, the developers fielded a number of frequently asked questions on the official website.
For those that are feeling trepidatious about Fuse due to the change in name (it was originally announced as Overstrike) and apparent homogenization that the title has undergone, fear not. You'll have a chance to check out a demo closer to the May 28, 2013, release. For those that hate punching in 16- and 25-digit codes, you'll be happy to know that there is no online pass for the game. If you do love your strings of random characters though, you can pre-order for some DLC.
The FAQ goes on to discuss Fuse's sense of humor and the "LEAP" mechanic, which allows players to make use of the entire four-person team even when there are fewer humans in the game. The description of the system reminds me of Microsoft's Brute Force, which you may not remember because it wasn't quite the smash hit the publisher was hoping for.
Fuse arrives next month for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

That screenshot looks amazing. I'll try out the game!
I love all of Insomniac's games. I'm also one of the few who doesn't care about the change in name/art style this game has gone through.
I hope it's alright. It should be an adequate game, but I'm still skeptical about what to make of it.
Right now the only kind of news i want to hear from insomniac is regarding to the Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal Assault. Other than their stupid statement letting us know a day before of yet another delay, we have not heard anything from them again. When EA botched the promised Battlefield:1943 with the purchase of Battlefield 3 i believe it was, people were outraged, they complained, and then they were rewarded in a measly stupid way.
What Insomniac did is more along the lines of promising costumers that if they bought their newest game, they would begin development of a PS Vita version to be given out for free when it was finished. This is unacceptable because next month i believe, it will be half a year that we have been kept waiting. This is not Battlefield, Call of Duty, nor Bioshock type of game where you find multiple bugs and glitches that need to be fixed..... This is sheer irresponsibility on behalf of insomniac. This is a sad statement for me to make because growing up i fell in love and became a fan of the ratchet and clank games (with the exception of All for One which had none of the characteristics of the previous entries). I for one want answers soon, because at this rate, it would seem like they're starting to follow on EA's footsteps.
Definitley going to pick up the demo for this one, really on the fence about it.
