Sony is buying Insomniac Games. You may know those motherfuckers as the developer behind Spider-Man and Ratchet & Clank. Two fantastic-ass franchises. What does this shit mean? Well, there’s very little to differentiate Sony and Microsoft these days, outside of their console-exclusives. And, with Sony dominating that avenue this generation, it seems like they ain’t fucking planning to quit dominating anytime soon.
As well, shout out to our own NeoSapian for first letting me know about this!
I don’t know if there are words to accurately capture how fucking stunning this trailer is for Insomniac’s Spider-Man game. Just. Goddamn.
Today, Insomniac Games has revealed their next game, Sony of the Deep. It’s a gorgeous, gorgeous 2D underwater adventure, from the looks of it. Can’t wait to see more of the game from the company, whose Ratchet & Clank series remains one of my all time favorites.
‘Cause why not? Everything else for PlayStation 4 has been delayed. Making this Fall and Autumn look…barren for the company whose grip on the console war is weakening.
Well, God be good! After Insomniac Games dropped that Fuze? Fuse? Fuzzy? with its mature multiplayer nonsense, I had feared the company and I had parted ways. Well, it looks like them fuckers have won me back. With an an accidental early reveal of a new Ratchet game.
Insomniac Games have been bringing the fire for ages. Or at least like, ten years? Or something? Anyways, as much as I loved the first Resistance, I was pretty fucking meh about the sequel. Today they released the official live-action trailer for Resistance 3, and all is easily forgotten. Shit has got a quality vibe, and Insomniac has even publicly acknowledged the complaints regarding the second iteration. This all gets me several shades of pumped.
Hit the jump for the official trailer.
I’m extremely fucking stoked for Vanquish. The shit is the first game from Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil, and executive producer of pretty much everything awesome and Capcom: Devil May Cry, Dino Crisis, Viewtiful Joe, and the SNES version of Aladdin. This is his first game for Platnium Games, the studio that brought us Bayonetta. If you were within the OL halls last spring, you’d know that I like Bayonetta. A smidge. And after finding out last week we’re getting the game this year!, the only thing that could make me more excited is praise from over gaming heroes of mine. Well, here we go!
Insomniac Games loves Vanquish, apparently, with one developer calling its “Gears of War on crack.” Three staffers named Platinum Games’ exciting cover-based shooter as they favorite E3 title, and considering how awesome it is, I can hardly blame them!
“It’s a brilliant technical showpiece from the creator of the original Resident Evil and the director of Resident Evil 4 — my favorite game of all time,” says community specialist Paul Featherstone. “It plays like Gears of War on crack and looks absolutely gorgeous.
“Platinum is knocking it out of the park after Bayonetta — hopefully we will see more frequent high-quality releases from them in the next few years.”
Hell to the yes. I want me some super-psycho, over-the-top, Gears of War on crack. Yes please.
