Grid 2 crosses the line as the third different UK no. 1 in three weeks.

Without friends, Fuse is nearly intolerable, hampered by i...

"Shit gets really weird" in Fuse. Not our words, but those of Overstrike 9's Dalton Brooks. Still, would be a great tagline for Fuse, or any game for that matter. Oh well, Insomniac's Fuse will have to make do without when it launches on May 28 for PS3 and Xbox 360. ...

And here we thought all the humor left Fuse with the name change. The last Fuse trailers were pretty dark, with the occasional one-liner balanced by one of the heroes setting fire to a car with a guy in it, but now EA and Insomniac offer two infographics densely packed with joke "information."
