Sunset Overdrive and my anxiousness is killing me!

Written and Edited by Lynn Gerena ( Ashe Darkthorne )


Can I just say I am SOO looking forward to picking up Sunset Overdrive tomorrow morning.



sunset_overdrive-2527357The long await of Insomniac’s newest IP is just mere hours away. This is my punk rock ballad in video game form and I am eagerly awaiting to play this for the long haul.

I did get to play a small portion of this at the GameStop Expo in September and it just made me want more. The game just comes alive with color and humor and just overall fun. Something that certain recent releases have failed to keep.

Being sarcastic by nature I love the innuendos and the poking at huge corporations and current issues of the day.  I truly would have loved spending my time with just Sunset Overdrive but there was so much to see at the Expo that I didn’t want to handicap myself. Plus there were times Ed and myself were too busy trying to scarf up the sweet swag.

Back to the game. It has been receiving many positive reviews on “traditional” websites. I will definitely be posting some gameplay footage tomorrow as well as a quick review later in the week. Unfortunately since this is an Xbox One exclusives the Fanboys will and have been knocking both Microsoft and Insomniac for this.

People claim that both parties are “buying” review scores. I can promise you this from a first hand and non-partisan perspective. This game DESERVES it’s ratings. It is just that damn GOOD.

Well if you have not made the jump for the newer systems and you were contemplating an Xbox One anyway? I would definitely recommend that Sunset be your first purchase unless you go all out and find a Sunset Overdrive Bundle. You won’t regret it.
