The Insomniacs are setting things to OVERDRIVE in this wicked sick live-action trailer for, you guessed it, Sunset Overdrive. Look, I would get descriptive and point out the little details, but I got a test to study for right now… so, just watch it, okay? You’ll like it. 

Say what? Sunset Overdrive has a live-action trailer that's a bit weird and NSFW!

That’s right folks, looks like Microsoft has been on a roll lately when it comes to adverting what seems to be their ammo for this holiday season. First we had the live-action trailer for Forza Horizon 2 and now there’s one for Sunset Overdrive. I’m not so sure what I watched but it was definitely, um…. unique. Check it out for yourself below.

Thoughts on Microsoft buying Mojang? Here are some of Jamin’s:

Episode 6: Desecrating America

In this, the sixth episode of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning, life-affirming Popular Topical Discussions podcast, Ben tells a harrowing tale of that one time he accidentally desecrated America in the days following 9/11.


Plus, we thoroughly discuss Final Fantasy 15, Silent Hill$, Hyrule Warriors, the new Super Smash Bros. games, Minecraft being purchased by Microsoft (basically, we talk way too much about video games), Legend of Korra season 4 and its impending premiere, the upcoming Star Wars trilogy, the Deadpool movie, and which butthole(s) we’d prefer to lick - Rob Liefeld’s or 85 Chris Claremonts’.


P.S. Thanks to special guests Zanna and Anthony for their invaluable contributions.

This is what Console exclusives are looking like for the next 4 months, I really have to congratulate Sony on being able to sell over 10 million PS4s with almost NOTHING to play on them in terms of exclusives.

Sure the PS4 has games, multiplatform games that can be bought on the PC, the Xbox One and even the previous generation. All the while launching with just TWO exclusives “Not Halo” and “Not Crash Bandicoot/Spyro”.

Meanwhile, the Wii U, which everyone has almost given up on is seeing a resurgence of amazing titles with a big exclusive every month until Christmas with Smash Bros looking to claim the top spot this holiday season.

Also, the Xbox One is slowly showing some promise, Sunset Overdrive will surely be a big title and Halo:TMCC will sell like crazy.

Yet, Sony, with its 10 Million plus units sold will be gracing us this holiday season with…..a racing game.
