The innuendos made it so that both adults and kids could get different enjoyment from Ratchet & Clank.
Someone pointed out on another thread that if you swap the 'F' and the the 'P', you get Ratchet & Clank Ript Afart lol In any case, it looks incredible and I'll be grabbing it immediately upon release!
Insomniac originally wanted to name A Crack in Time, "Clock Blockers" but the name was rejected because it sounds to close to something else...lol
That would have been a good name.
A Quest for Booty was legendary lol
I'm sure some snowflakes or two would wage twitter wars if Insomniac came up with a nice name though.
I thought the idea was to sound like Ripped a Fart tbh. I just assumed like every other name it was something silly behind it too
Ratchet and Clank used to be so much edgier. The new games look and play great, but where did the whimsical Pixar tone come from? I get they needed to sell a movie but why did it stick lol
What do you mean why did it stick? Did you play any Ratchet game since the movie? I'm confused. I know damn well I didn't see a new one since. People just running with nothing. Like they're suppose to make a trailer of edgy jokes when even the old games didn't have that much edgy jokes even if you could call em edgy. They were just just jokes of the time really. Going commando, up your arsenal, a crack in Time, full frontal assault, rift apart. They're all names that literally sound like silly jokes when you think about it. The others are a bit of a stretch. But how about you wait until the game releases and see, then make that call. Things were fine until a crack in Time and none of the Ratchet games since were full blown new Ratchet games. Closest was a movie tie in that was literally suppose to be kiddy
Theres been two since the movie, the reboot tie in and this new one. It isnt just the jokes that were edgy. There were multiple rated T Ratchet games. Ratchet and Clank had more of a buddy cop dynamic where they brushed against each other with conflicted personalities. Now theyre just cutesy best friends without any friction or any dynamic at all. The music and aesthetics are also just less edgy. Just my personal opinion, but the older games had more character.
"Ripped Apart" sounds rather sexual to me.
I miss Ratchet & Clank's tongue in cheek everything. The writing just doesn't have the spunk it used to back in the PS2 days.
"It was mating season - how was I supposed to know it was your sister"??
The writing has gone backwards in terms of humour, and ive played every single one.
they are 2nd in this department, the 1 spot goes to the south park rpg's
A fracture but whole was legendary for sure
haha yeah, genius name. only they could release a game with a title like that.
People will find anything to moan about these days. The name is still clever but its not exactly important to the experience in any way.
"My daughter says you're good with your hands." "SIR I SWEAR I NEVER..."
As everyone else has pointed out. The name of the game is a play on the phrase, "Ripped a fart", rendering this whole article stupid and pointless
I miss gaming articles that weren't hack-written garbage.
Yea, the only one I’ve played was the PS4 Remake and there was nothing clever in the writing. If I’m being honest, the humor was like Nick Jr. level writing for me and had me rolling my eyes. I can’t speak for the other games if they had innuendo that made it more humorous for adults but I do miss the title naming. It’s like nobody can have any fun anymore.
