Well, this for me was the big stand out of the EA conference. Sure, Battlefield 3 looks amazing, but I always prefer to see that at 1080p without it having to buffer every ten seconds. Instead, what caught my eye was Overstrike.
This seems to be a cross between The Incredibles, TimeSplitters, Tf2 and Borderlands-y four player co-op.
I like the trailer. The lead character’s reaction after seeing his shield in use for the first time (the ‘EUGH!’ response) made me laugh out loud. It has promise, but I’m holding my fanboy happiness until I see the actual game in action, instead of a trailer.
I’m not sure what to think of this. On the one hand it seems to have that same brand of Pixar style humor and animation that me and my 5 year old nephew love so much in Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time. OTOH, it’s about killing and stuff, and not a kid friendly game at all.
