Well, maybe we'll get Insomniac back after all and they can clean up the Resistance franchise with a definitive ending. Negative vibes to follow, I'll hide them in case you're looking forward to Fuse and don't need guys like me to crap all over it;
1:30 into the video, a stealth character slices a guy's neck, there are three soldiers about six steps away, one of which was looking right at the killed soldier. No reaction, this scenario is fitting for the tone of this entire presentation; the game just seems like "another everyday third person shooter". Kill a guy and you get points! Kill a heavy and you can pick up the flamethrower he was just using on you! Such overused tropes that we've seen time and time again.
This video just didn't tell me that "you need to pay attention to this game." It was ten minutes of generic cover shooting sections where angry target practice dummies marched out of a building in waves. It's as if you've already played this game before, just with a different coat of paint. As an Insomniac faithful I'll still rent it and see if there's a story beat to follow, but if Insomniac has an ace in the hole with this one hopefully they show it sooner rather than later.

it looks better than I expected. I like how its a third person shooter. I always prefer 3rd to 1st person shooters any day
One of the reasons why I love StarHawk so much is this as well!
