Sunset Overdrive’s new trailer brings the laughs

Sunset Overdrive forall Twist Of Fate Amp

Teddy bears being ripped open and stuffed with dynamite. When a trailer has something like that in its first few moments, then I know I’m watching something good. Sunset Overdrive already knows it’s a wildly unfamiliar and unique game, so why should it’s trailers be any different?

They shouldn’t be really, and thankfully they aren’t. Most of the time live-action trailers mash together some gameplay and bad CGI. But Sunset Overdrive isn’t “every other game”. Here you’ve got a director nearly blown to bits, sexy hamburgers and infected creatures signing NDA’s.Over the top, unexplainable ridiculous behaviour. The very essence of what Sunset Overdrive is.

If you’re still on the fence about Sunset Overdrive, particularly because of its style, then this isn’t really going to change your mind. Then again, it shouldn’t have to. Sunset Overdrive isn’t going to be a game for everyone, but I’m looking forward to its unique and insanely different gameplay more than anything else.

I just hope the thrill of grinding around and shooting stuff doesn’t get old a few hours in. Sunset Overdrive launches exclusively on Xbox One next month.

      So you’re still not going to get past lvl 45 on Diablo 3?

        I’m doing a tech experiment on it, I want to see how long it takes for it to commit suicide from realising its inferiority…

          lol @ #ObviousTrolling. So sad, and I would even boost you up the levels (or get someone in my clan to do it). I gained 36 levels and 38 paragon levels in about 3 hours of play last weekend.

            Yeah? Impressive. After BL2 I’m gonna hit a few “shorter” games, since I’m really falling behind on ye olde backlog

          We need to co-op that game! I’m a bit bored at playing it alone, maybe then I will finally finish it.

      I would like to see what happens when the Admiral Chief and Master Chief collide.

      Great trailers do not make great games though. That is why I like post game release reviews. πŸ™‚

    I still have fond memories of loading teddy-bears into the ‘homemade’ rocket launcher in Fallout.
