Sunset Overdrive Once Had Less Jumping, More Shooting

Sunset Overdrive's New Expansion Is Short But Sweet

Sunset Overdrive, the silly new shooter from the creators of Ratchet & Clank, got its first story-based expansion today, The Mystery Of The Mooil Rig.

The Challenges Of Letting You Be A Fat Video Game Hero

Zany open-world action game Sunset Overdrive—as its creators told me during a recent San Francisco preview event—is all about letting players be whoever they want. I made a very nice bearded lady with tiny mouths for eyes. I noticed something, though: you can pick your body type, but you can't pick a heavy one. I was… » 9/22/14 7:47pm 9/22/14 7:47pm

Sunset Overdrive Looks Fantastic In Action

I rarely get all that hyped while reading game previews, but Phil Owen's recent preview of Insomniac's open-world Xbox One action game Sunset Overdrive was an exception. Now we can watch it in action, and it does indeed look like a hell of a lot of fun. » 5/08/14 2:30pm 5/08/14 2:30pm

Friends? An Outernaut Needs No Friends. Not Anymore.

Players expecting something more than standard Facebook fare from the developer of Ratchet & Clank's first foray into the social gaming world were somewhat disappointed by Outernauts' strong reliance on things like asking friends for help or waiting for energy to refill. Yesterday's major game update should make those… » 10/17/12 4:55pm 10/17/12 4:55pm
