The lights are on
Four new videos track each of the playable characters in Insomniac’s upcoming shooter, and between them, a clear vision of Fuse’s action emerges.
Electronic Arts and Insomniac are gearing up for the release of Fuse in the coming months. The PS3 and 360 shooter focuses strongly on cooperative play and crazy weapons – the latter of which has been a longtime strength within Insomniac’s games.
The following four trailers each focus on one of the four characters of Overstrike 9: Dalton, Izzy, Jacob, and Naya. The individual trailers each offer a glimpse of the character’s personality and the unique weapon that will set them apart.
Take a look at the videos, and let us know which character you think looks coolest in the comments section.

This looks generic as hell. The weapons aren't even that distinct. Izzy's gun is a rifle version of Resistance 3's cryogun, the mag shield is the same thing as the Ravager's mobile shield in Resistance 3, the singularity ability was an alternative fire for the electro-static gun, and the crossbow is essentially a sniper rifle combined with the detonator charges from Red Faction. There's nothing new here.
Dalton looks kinda like a reskinned Chris Redfield from RE6. Buff, BA, and mad.
This is definitely on my gaming radar, I hope it is as good as it looks.
Meh. I don't feel anything. I might just stick with Gears.
The best character has got to be Izzy. I'm a sucker for redheads and Ali Hillis so it's a sure thing that she's who I'll be playing as.
It's Borderlands without a sense of humor AND on top of that takes itself too seriously.
I think Naya seemed the coolest, then Jacob (love the crossbow), Dalton, and Izzy (her weapon underwhelmed me for some reason).
And again, it looked better when it was Overstrike...
This game is going to kick some A. I'm buying It. It looks like a mix of Uncharted and Lost Planet. I like.
Eh, Overstrike looked so much better.
