I feel like Naughty Dog has basically abandoned J&D.

It's almost like they don't want to actually close the book on the fans, but it seems sort of obvious they're not that interested anymore. They've never been the type of developer to go back like that either (i.e. Crash).

Sucks. That said, I'm so happy to be able to play the old games on the PS3 via the HD remake.

While I was hoping for some new PS4 game series, the new Ratchet trailer did make a good first impression.

I'm guessing this game is being made to give the PS3 Ratchet games a better send-off than Full Frontal Assault before they start PS4 Ratchet games. Let's face it, there's probably going to be some next-gen titles to promote the feature film in 2015.

FFA was OK, but it's A LOT better with other people.

Ratchet and Clank writer T.J. Fixman leaves Insomniac

(3 hours ago)
4

Pen-behind-the-lombax Todd 'T.J.' Fixman announced his departure from Insomniac Games yesterday, saying he wanted to focus on mediums other than gaming. In a blog post, long-serving Ratchet and Clank writer Fixman said his "relationship" with Insomniac will continue, at least because he'll still be working on the Ratchet and Clank movie due in 2015.

Fixman joined Insomniac in 2007, going on to become a senior writer at the studio and work on nine games including the Ratchet and Clank Future series, All 4 One, and Full Frontal Assault. Fixman said a surge in feature screenwriting opportunities over the last year had left his workload too great to keep his position at Insomniac, but added that the move is also about finding a new challenge.

"I can look at my time at Insomniac and feel like I've done what I set out to do there," said Fixman. "As for other mediums, I feel like I'm just getting started. I'm excited by movies and television. I want to get back into graphic novel writing. I want to develop different projects with new characters and stories and worlds I can explore. Right now I have the opportunity to try all of it, and when you're handed a gift like that, you have to grab onto it with both hands."

One of Fixman's last duties as an Insomniac employee was to write the script for new entry Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus, which rockets onto PS3 sometime this holiday.

Honestly, I'm hoping Insomniac breaks out of their comfort zone and does something new. The amount of talent at that studio is just being shackled right now by unaspiring games. Ratchet and Clank, in my opinion, needs to take a break. I love the franchise, don't get me wrong. However, that being said, I think it'd be in Insomniac's best interest to try something new.

I'm not really sure yet what to think of Sunset Overdrive since we haven't seen gameplay. What I have envisioned in my head looks awesome as hell and loads of potential. But we all know the case here...often times what fans envision is better than the retail product we're given.

I'd like to see Insomniac branch out and take a stab at a horror title or maybe even a racing game ala Diddy Kong racing/Modnation Racers etc. I think their pedigree of creating exotic weapons would work well in an over the top campy gun-blazing racer.

Just my two cents.

Moving away from Sony exclusivity should be a good thing for them in the long run. Resistance 3 is one of my favorite games of the generation but there's no denying it's been a rough 8 years for them. Nothing they make sells all that much.

Unfortunately that's not happening anytime soon. We are getting a new title this fall and with a movie out in 2015, Id bet money that a PS4/Vita tie in will be released by then. Sony really overexposed Ratchet this gen, releasing 6 games, including 2 PSP titles during this same period, for a total of 8 games from this IP in a span of 7 years.

Considering that Fuse on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sold for a combined total of 110,000, I would say leaving Sony was a bad move for Insomniac. Resistance 3 at least sold 1.33 million units and the proper Ratchet & Clank games (not those quick, over and done, short games that have been coming out) are rather good sellers of about 2 million.

If Sunset Overdrive ends up being a bust (and considering Microsoft's strong penchant for letting their non-Halo/Fable IPs to just die, I would say that's a strong possibility), I think Insomniac has no choice but to sell to Sony. A studio can't thrive independently with huge bombs like Fuse.

To me, Insomniac belongs at/with Sony. I sure hope their image hasn't been tarnished in a way that will hurt Into the Nexus. I hope it does well and I'm probably going to get it but it is coming out the same week as the PS4...
