Default The Official "Ratchet & Clank" general thread (spoilers)

Well, since this franchise doesn't have a general thread yet, I decided to make one. This will be where the all the games in the franchise, as well as upcoming games, comic book series, action figures, and more will be discussed. Also, some possible spoilers as well.

What does everyone think of the announced All 4 One game?

I'm really excited for All 4 One, I think it's going to be a blast. I wonder if it'll play like a normal Ratchet in single player though?

This is such a great franchise.

From what I've head, in single player, you'll have at least one AI partner with you, so gameplay changes only slightly.

Maybe we'll find out more at PAX.

I'm looking forward to it too, it's something I think alot of fans have thought about.

And I love the R&C franchise. I fell in love with Going Commando way back when and quickly started following the series

The first issue of the comic book is out, for those interested. I've loved it so far. It perfectly picks up two years after A Crack in Time, and it effectively pushes our heroes into a new adventure. The only minus that I've noticed to far is Adam Archer's art, as it look a little-off. I'll get used to it, though.

The only other nitpick is:

Nefarious being revealed to have survived the crash. It's not even the fact he's alive, but they used the stupid "he teleported" excuse! Kinda lazy writing.


So, anyone else gonna pick it up?

Wish this thread would get a lot more activity, this is shaping up to be maybe the best co-op on PS3 and the visuals are mind-blowing. I'm looking froward to it more than Resistance 3 for sure.

Same here. Where's the hype? I do like the fact that they're trying to bring in some of the crazier, naughtier humor back into the franchise.

Looks like Into the Nexus will be a traditional Ratchet game from the trailer, yay!

Quote:
The rumors are true: Insomniac Games is developing a new Ratchet & Clank game. It’s called Into the Nexus, and it will appear exclusively on PlayStation 3 later this fall.

I was lucky enough to get an extended look at the duo's return -- in pre-alpha form -- and was left quite impressed with what I saw. In short, Into the Nexus gets the series back to its roots, a so-called “traditional” Ratchet & Clank game the likes of which PlayStation gamers haven’t seen since 2009's A Crack In Time.

Check out our video preview below, and then keep on reading to learn more about what to expect when Into the Nexus launches later in 2013.

Into the Nexus begins with Ratchet and Clank transporting twin villains Vendra and Neftin Prog to a location known as the Vartax Detention Center. This voyage brings our favorite lombax-and-robot duo to haunted space, however, and while in the process of bringing his foes to lock-up, they escape Ratchet’s grasp. This leaves Ratchet and Clank alone and stranded in the scariest sector of space they’ve ever visited.

Long-time Insomniac employee and the visionary behind the Ratchet & Clank series, Brian Allgeier, noted that “the time was right to come back to the core series” with Into the Nexus after he'd spent time on Fuse. All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault were enjoyed by some and criticized by others, but it can’t be disputed that neither was a traditional, true-to-form Ratchet & Clank game. Allgeier said that doing a “family” and “competitive” game, respectively, allowed his team to finally “do something different,” but Into the Nexus finally allows them to go back in an old-school direction.
They're back!

They're back!

As such, Allgeier wanted to “make Ratchet feel like Ratchet again.” To accomplish this goal, he and his team made a prototype stage -- a “jungle gym,” as he described it -- to get Ratchet’s quintessential feel just right. They then segued what they learned (or re-learned) into their new project, which isn’t only designed to give longtime Ratchet fans what they crave, but to explore the “darkness of space.” While Into the Nexus is very humorous, as all Ratchet games are, Allgeier thought it would be “fun to take [the series] in a spookier direction” with its newest entry.

Following Vendra and Neftin Prog’s escape, Ratchet & Clank arrive at a planet called Yerek. Yerek is your typical Ratchet & Clank gas giant -- a temperate locale inhabited by bumbling, heavily-armed enemies -- and it’s here that I got my very first glimpse of Ratchet’s new, incredibly wacky arsenal. Sure, Ratchet has some of his typical weapons -- his sidearm called the Omniblaster and his signature melee weapon, for instance -- but there are a bunch of new tools at his disposal that are worth noting.

One such weapon is called the Nightmare Box, which is really more of a distraction than an actual weapon. When deployed, it scares enemies, forcing them to either flee or to attack the box, giving Ratchet an angle to strike his foes. Another weapon, the Repulsor, will leave bad guys suspended in midair when deployed, again giving Ratchet the time he needs to attack without being damaged by the opposition.

Into the Nexus also contains two types of grenades: the Vortex Grenade and the Fusion Grenade. The Vortex Grenade creates black holes that raise nearby foes into the air and force them to helplessly revolve around the black hole while Ratchet picks ‘em off from afar (it‘s also useful to coerce armored enemies from stationary, defensive positions like gun turrets). The Fusion Grenade is a little more straight-forward: it’s an arc-thrown explosive that does major area-of-effect damage.
Beware.

Beware.

The strangest -- and funniest -- weapon of them all, however, is the Winterizer. When Ratchet employs the aptly-named gun, all enemies it hits will turn into snowmen. Better yet, the weapon plays Jingle Bells while it’s working its magic. It’s an amazingly fitting, totally insane Ratchet weapon, and from the looks of it, it appears extremely useful during the heat (heh) of battle.

Ratchet also has a non-offensive device at his disposal, an extremely useful gadget called the Grav Tether. With it, Ratchet can attach portals strewn about the environment, creating beams that will transport him seamlessly from one portal to another. What’s cool about the Grav Tether is that the puzzles that demand its use become more complex as time goes on. It won’t be long before you’re connecting several portals together at once, all while under a strict time limit, in order to cross wide chasms and other dangerous obstacles.
Thugs-4-Less?!

Thugs-4-Less?!

Clank also has an all-new function in addition to some of his returning moves (such as giving Ratchet the ability to long jump, high jump, and glide). Into the Nexus revolves heavily around the idea of what are, in essence, alternate dimensions, and when Clank is deployed in one of these areas, he gets to go to work. Players will control him directly in puzzle-heavy 2D platforming sections somewhat reminiscent of the lesser-known downloadable game Pid. Successfully completing these areas -- called Netherverses -- open up new locations for he and Ratchet to explore.

Apart from a ton of new gadgets and weapons -- and some new tricks and skills -- a lot of familiar staples of the series have returned. The franchise’s famous Skill Points are back, of course, as are hidden Gold Bolts. Regular bolts that are collected can be spent as currency to acquire new goods, and every weapon can be upgraded through experience earned by using that weapon in battle. Familiar characters will also return, including Captain Qwark, Cronk, Zephyr, and Talwyn. Even the Thugs-4-Less mercenaries from Going Commando will be back. This game is, after all, an epilogue to the Future branch of the Ratchet & Clank franchise.
Ratchet's fancy new gadget.

Ratchet's fancy new gadget.

Oh, and as for the complete lack of innuendo in Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus’ name? One of Insomniac’s working titles for the game was Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nether Regions. But the developer eventually settled on Into the Nexus as its final title (it will be called just Ratchet & Clank: Nexus in Europe).

And as for a Vita iteration? It’s entirely possible, but it’s still up in the air. The Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault met a whole lot of trouble during development and came to the market much later than it was supposed to. As such, Insomniac is cautious this time around. “Everyone would love for it to come to Vita,” Insomniac’s James Stevenson told me, “but it has to be up to the series’ standards” before the company makes any definitive statement.

In the meantime, rest assured Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will be available for PlayStation 3 this fall both digitally and on disc -- and for $29.99 to boot.

Its a retail game which looks to be in the same vein as the other PS3 entries in the main series. Its being sold as an epilogue to the Future Saga so it shouldn't be seen as a small scale spinoff like A4O and FFA

Ratchet needed to return to its classic style. Its one of my favorite things about PlayStation.

They should release a Ratchet and Clank Future Collection which includes the previous 3 games plus this for $60

Can't believe I was ever looking forward to All 4 One. Maaaan.

Anyways, this does look good (I never learn). Though their last two outings have been misfires, I think Ratchet and Clank should be commended for the amount they've given to PS3 based on quantity alone.

That would be cool, I have A Crack in Time and Quest for Booty the digital version (the US didn't get a physical one ). But I would easily want the collection and give what I already have away. Trophy Support for Booty and Tools of Destruction would be great.

All 4 One wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I got Full Frontal Assault just for the free Deadlocked/Gladiator HD I only wish Jak got the same treatment from Naughty Dog.
