JC Barnett is the nom de plume of a video games developer working and living in Japan. Here he discusses episodic content, and what Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty has gotten right:
"I've dipped my toe in the episodic gaming world once or twice. The results were usually pleasant enough, if never overwhelming. The Sam & Max series, for example, were mostly fun but as games paled in comparison to the original and the art re-use was always a little too obvious. American McGee too is currently toying around with the concept with his Grimm series and Telltale are further building on the idea with Strongbad's Cool Game for Attractive People. It's all go, apparently. However, I was most pleasantly surprised by Insomniac's Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, released this week over the Playstation Network."
