The Game Guy
“Sunset Overdrive,” the upcoming title from Insomniac Games, was one of the larger talking points of E3 2014. Nintendo had “Super Smash Bros,” Sony had “The Order: 1886” and Microsoft’s gem was “Sunset Overdrive.” Coming from a well known and respected development team, expectations are high for this open-world playground. While sliding, gliding and taking out mindless zombies looks like a blast, I worry that it will grow stale after a couple hours.
The year is 2027 in the fictional metropolis of Sunset City. The FizzCo Corporation is on the brink of unveiling a new energy drink called Overcharge Delirium XT. The powerful company has been able to skip the FDA approval process for the beverage thanks to its hefty bankroll.
