Sunset Overdrive Launch Trailer Throws In The Ridiculous - But Will It Be Ridiculously Fun?

Sunset Overdrive Launch Trailer Throws In The Ridiculous - But Will It Be Ridiculously Fun?

Insomniac's Xbox One exclusive, Sunset Overdrive, releases October 28th, and it's got a kick ass launch trailer. This pretty much sums up what the game is about. Just blasting zombies and not taking itself too seriously. To put it simply... it's ridiculous. Unfortunately I won't have access to Sunset Overdrive, so I can't give you my impressions when it's out... but if there was any game out there that piqued my interest on the Xbox One, this would be it. Check out the trailer below...

Levelling Up In Life - I'm A Gamer Dad

Levelling Up In Life - I'm A Gamer Dad

I still remember the first time I booted up Dune 2 on my 486 DX2 . Oh the sound of sands sweeping across the planet, and the sweet voice of the narrator. Or the first time I heard the Achtung of a soldier in Wolfenstein 3D. That was back in 1992. Those memories are still vivid, and I remember wanting to study programming... because like everyone who played those early industry defining games, I wanted to make games. But I didn't... and I'm thankful for that.

Hatred Pulls No Punches - A Game About Mass Murdering Innocent Civilians

Hatred Pulls No Punches - A Game About Mass Murdering Innocent Civilians

So this little game is getting lots of buzz on the internet. Developed by a new team, Destructive Creations, Hatred is purely about murder... that's murdering everyone... anyone. For no apparent reason other than the deep-seated emotion of the antagonist. Hatred is an isometric shooter where you go by shooting everything at sight.. and use human shields against the police. It's the type of game that would be picked up by news outlets as glorifying violence... but I can't say until I've played it. Perhaps in the end... there's a twist... or maybe not. Hatred is due out for the PC in 2015.
