A Second, Very Brief Look at Insomniac's Next Big Game

Resistance and Ratchet & Clank developers Insomniac took to the spotlight at E3 2011 and revealed Overstrike. A game that we've basically not seen since.

Well, it's back, and with a new name, and once I stop thinking it sounds like the name of a racing game, I'm sure everything will be just fine.

This clip, apparently taken from one of the game's briefing sequences, is notable because I can't remember the last time a briefing sequence was worth showing off.

Ugh. Characters at the end look like they've taken a turn for the generic and "realistic". The vibe and aesthetic was my favorite part about the original reveal. Sure this is a tiny teaser, but the "serious" tone of this trailer + the next gen-ified characters at the end just killed my expectations. And for everyone else as a means of comparison, paused @ 0:43 and compare those faces to this image. Same characters, just worse looking.
