Alright then. Which of you miscreants is playing the game already, when I have to wait until Friday for it to be released in the UK?

What do you think of it?

I posted this over at NintendoLife:

Got done with a 5-hour session of Sunset Overdrive and it's a blast so far. Still early in the game but already got some pretty sweet weapons and upgrades. Stringing combos together and then having your upgrades kick in is crazy. Takes some of my favorite games Ratchet & Clank (crazy weapons), inFamous, Jet Set Radio and Crackdown (somewhat similar art style/colorful atmosphere) and blends them nicely. Nothing original but it is the best Insomniac game I've played in a while now, Resistance 3 in 2011 being the last good one and 2009's R&C: A Crack in Time being the last truly great one. The story isn't too engaging, yet at least, but I do like the cast of characters and I enjoy the humor. Most important part though is it's just fun to play and the map is pretty big and from what I can tell it seems like there is a ton of collectibles and seems like there will be plenty of side missions/challenges to keep us busy. Should have some decent longevity.

Also, @SuperKMx, who's got the PureXbox review for this one? I think I saw on my friends list that @DRL was playing the game.

Yup, Dave's on the case.

Sounds good. Nice to see Microsoft secure an exclusive besides Halo or Forza.

We'll have a review up very soon! Had a little issue finding Chaos Squad sessions before and didn't want to publish the review without thoroughly testing all features.

That's why I use this website for my Xbox news. Thorough reviews and you guys actually interact with the community. Enjoyed reading the review, as always.

We're totally going to team up for Chaos Squad after you secure a nice arsenal of weapons.

Fired this game up for the first time in a while and saw MS sent me a code for new outfits. Anybody else get this and between this and the weapons pack is it maybe a sign the new story dlc is not too far off?

I believe you're right.

I gotta say this turning out to be a great game was the best surprise of 2014 for me.

Fuse was just so... not fun to play. At all. Really cool weapons but the whole game was just average at its best parts.
