FUSE, nee Overstrike, has been met with a fair bit of negative press since it changed from being a quirkly looking game into yet another bro-fisting cover shooter. Despite Insomniac “taking a page from Resistance” with the game, it’s been “little brother” focus groups and a general feeling of blandness that has had people talking.
Still, it could be great. Insomniac are undoubtably talented people and they’ve got plenty of experience in this area.
Regardless, the game has been delayed. It didn’t feature on EA’s Q1 line-up in last night’s conference call (EA’s games for the first three months are Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, Sim City, Army of Two and Tiger Woods) and was later confirmed to be aiming at Q1 financial year 2014, or somewhere between April and June this year.
Let’s hope the delays are for all the right reasons.
