The Lombax is back with hover boots and more weapons to whet your appetite for destruction.
Oh wow! The only ratchet I have ever played and finished was the first. This has be excited: I'm really going to get hold of the first 2 titles on PS3 asap because this looks insanely fun. There is a second character fighting... maybe even co-op in this one!
If you look beyond the "cartoonish" art-style, there's some really impressive textures, effects, physics and depth to the game. And yeah, it looks like they might even have co-op with Ratchet's father (I suspect that's what he is). Very cool. Seems to be on the right path to doing what a sequel should do: improving on the formula of the game and adding a few new twists while not sacrificing the spirit of the series. Buying this for sure.
how bout multiplayer and coop
I think those are rumored to be true. I.G managed to get 60 MP and CO-OP in R2. I am pretty sure it would be a piece of cake for them in RC CIT.
remember this is a time travel game... could be Ratchet as an older man
the old lombax is neither OLD ratchet or ratchet's dad. If you guys saw the interview on spike yesterday, they clearly said it's neither, it's just another lombax in the universe. On topic, this game looks freaking awesome. I see they have upgraded the water physics in this game. If you look closely, when ratchet is in the water and he shoots that gun/animal he's holding, the ammo it's shooting actually creates ripples in the water. Hover boots FTW!!!
I've watched the interview on GameTrailers's show... They sad he's another survived Lombax beside Ratchet, & there will be also some time travel.
This looks sweet but I can't say I'm surprised. The R&C series has always delivered great action/platforming. Great humour coupled to great gameplay and scripting is just a winning combination. I loved The first R&C Future and I know I'll love this one too.
They deliver every year, whether it's Ratchet or Resistance. Looks great, can't wait for this fall for the next installment.
Do yourself a HUGE favor and go get Tools of Destruction. It is a great playthrough.
I REALLY hope there's 4 player splitscreen for this game. I remember playing Deadlocked and it was SO MUCH FUN! I prefer 4 player splitscreen over online multiplayer any day! But having both would just be plain awesome! ^_^
Wait... where's clank
i haven't been posting for a while but this game has brought me back. cool new weapons and a hover boots what else can you ask for? count me in.
Yeah. Game looks beautiful. It seems improved over ToD1 and Im saying a lot, considering how good ToD1 looks. That fishy weapon is teh awesome :D Last thing, gameplay looks more challenging than ToD1. Im really happy with that. Only worried about a thing: To much variety again? :D
co-op basically confirmed! old lombax dude looks pretty cool too.. the graphics are astounding, i can see improvements from TOD which was already very impressive now all i need is a Deadlocked-style multiplayer mode.. but i can do without it if there's co-op
How about, no? Why does this game or any other for that matter need a damn multiplayer mode?
"Why does this game or any other for that matter need a damn multiplayer mode?" Um... so people have something fun to do after they're finished with the story?
It has had it in the past, wouldn't hurt to have it again especially after what Insomniac with Resistance 1 & 2.
looks great i cant wait to see more footage at E3..i have a feeling we're gonna hear some awesome stuff for ACIT
graphics dated (ps2 graphics), gameplay of kids... nothingh new in crapstation3.
bless you... go to sleep now, i'll come up and tuck you in... ok, i'll leave the landing light on... shhhhh...
It's OK, I'd be a bitter, jealous fanboy too if all I had to play this year was Ninja Blade and Gay Tony.
...Exactly, now STFU!!!
Last I checked this isn't 2006 or 2007. Try and come up with something better than the crapstation3.
I think you're playing Banjo so much that now you're blind and see anything dated like that crappy Banjo game. LOL Trolls are returning! That means, the summer has started!
looks pretty cool
So now it works eh? Wait..nvm video is still broken for me. They brought back the arbiter! And the splicer so it seems? (multi blade gun)
Um, can anyone read here? A Crak <-- in time. Surely, whoever approved this must have picked that up? Anyway, looks like good old ratchet gameplay. My favourite! And with the rumour of added MP this could possibly be my favourite in the series, of course I still need to see more (and actually play it :p ) before judging it. Hopefully they'll confirm MP at E3 (if it hasn't been already.)
I really didn't notice that...and now I feel like a tard for not doing so. Guessing all the old favorites will be back? (with the new contest ones of course) Can't wait to fire the bouncer again. Best weapon ever created in the Ratchet and Clank games. Strongest too.
Jealousy is a bad disease bot... On Topic : Looks amazing, hopefully there will be a Co-op feature.
I was just about to mention that myself. I'm like what the heck is crak? The CRAK is a lie! How did this get past the anal people who approve the stories?
Oh yes 8)
those character models smoke effects and physics are INSANE. looks great, day 1 buy for me :D
Looks very good. Wanna see more though.
Insomniac have upgraded the effects in this game over 100%, just look at the fire effects and the walking animations on the beasts Ratchet is shooting is awesome. By the way if anyone says that the games missing all the polish, well thats because they haven't polished the game yet. This is an Alpha build of the game. The Polish comes at the end of development and when Insomniac are ready to release official screen shots of the game to the public thats when we all know the games been polished and its ready for the market
I don't know if it is just me but the first game looks kinda prettier than this one... Any thoughts?
the city environment was really nice looking, but the graphics seem to have been upgraded significantly in this one. But the shiny buildings in the first were perty :)
so it's hard to say it's worse. plus, this game will use the same engine as ToD (but improved, i'm sure). and, since QfB looked great, i have a hard time believing this game isn't going to look "pixar-like" spectacular. i know it's a first day purchase for me due to story and some of the reveals they have planned!!!!
can't wait! that reminded me of the first Crash in a way...sweet
I was impressed with the way the rockets exploded in mid-air and pieces rained down bouncing on the ground. That is very sweet.
I love ratchet games. So much fun. First one I ever played was tools of destruction. Loved it! went back and played some of the others.
This will be a day 1 purchase.
1st day purchase without a doubt'
They pull you into their World and you live/play in it and never want it to end!!! ;) (Well it's like that when i play R&C games) ;)
Sigh. I'll be broke before the end of the year. Sony have mercy.
u just jealous on PS3. Rachet is better than lame Bangi or Banjo. enjoy play with RROD BOX. LOL
I've never played a single ratchet game, but this makes me want to start. I've been meaning to get tools of destruction for a while.
cant wait to play it !!!!!! looks fun !!!!!
I love the cartoony style graphics of this game. It got me interested.
Looks really nice. I have to admit the PS3 has a great lineup of upcoming games.
Wow, that looks fantastic. One more great game to add to the PS3's amazing lineup.
I like the change in style this game seems to have gone through. It looks different than the last game. It looks beautiful. And of course we all know the gameplay is going to be top notch.
so far ACIT.. well the level we see on here look as impressive as QFBTY OR T.O.D DAY ONE BUY FOR ME. Im glad the buzz-blade gun and negotiator is in ACIT. dont like that hog-gun or whatever the heck it is?? looks weak need to fire over an over or either the guy was only showing how many guns there is. I personally would not be using the hog-gun feel like I would be calling HOGS. p.s. the older lombax looks to me as a time travel guide for ratchet. cant wait to see what the zony and dr.neferious has plan for ratchet
yeah looks kind of cell-shaded. But it isnt.
I like what I see, doesn't seem to be the graphical jump I expected though, can't wait for this.
Looking forward to seeing what crazy a$$ weapons Insomniac puts in this one. Was that a burping bullfrog?
pay close attention to the water in this game it's krazy how it moves Games look's really Good... and the effect's for Insomniac's Disney Pixar type look they are going for... because R & C:TOD look so good and know this will be even better... Keep up the Good work Insomniac... looking foward to R3 too Insomniac...
that Banjo Kazooie Game for 360 dosent even touch R & C Graphic's.. everybody that I know compare's R & C Graphic's to Disney Pixar style of the Art Direction they chose to go with... so why would you say something stupid like that.... Banjo's not even close to R & C Graphic's so before you even think to say something how bout think of that Banjo and Kazooie game on 360...and everybody in the world know's their Graphic's aint better than R & C so don't talk... Plus PS3 has the best animation's ever... they way the new Gadget act's is incredible animation...
I hate the graphics of the resistance engine... a lot of the textures with that engine are so bland and blurry, textures sucks with that engine.. I was disappointed with R&C:ToD only some levels were detailed but most of them had horrible textures all bland, bland, bland, bland.. same with Resistance2.. make a new engine cause that sh!t sucks!
