The opening cinematic for Sunset Overdrive underlines three life lessons:
- Always read the ingredients before consuming energy drinks
- When a haircut is asking for trouble, trouble will come answering
- Apocalyptic fires and high-speed trains are worth listening to.
As Ludwig put it in his preview, "Sunset Overdrive is a goofy explosion of vivid colors and anything-goes attitude, though it's not without shape. The outline resembles Jet Set Radio, with weapons on loan from Ratchet and Clank, and a dash of Fable's fuck-you to dying. We all know it's a video game, but listen - Sunset Overdrive is conspicuously a video game."
And it's conspicuously a video game headed to store shelves on October 28.
