Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time is near alpha stage and the level, Krell Canyon, will be shown at E3 2009.
craving for this game like i'm craving Ben and Jerry's cookie Dough Ice cream.
Same here. All this info has come from the new(ish) Podcast they released a few days ago.
hearing that this game is gonna be bigger than the last one just makes me think of how much i'm gonna make sure all the weapons are upgraded to the max.
Return of MP, yes baby! And for gods sake don't forget trophies this time Insomniac ... -_-
Well, since Resistance 2 had trophies I wouldnt doubt that Future 2 would have trophies. Isnt trophies mandatory now anyways?
they had the first Trophies... ...skill points!
From the article: "Fans can also expect more variety" Oh no! But GameSpot criticized the last one for having too much variety! Now there'll be even MORE variety? Hah! GameSpot has changed their tune lately, though, as they've been very, very kind to PS3 games in the last year or so. They gave MGS4 game of the year last year, and they gave great scores to all the major exclusives like Resistance 2, Killzone 2, MLB 09 The Show, and InFamous. I bet that they don't throw a "too much variety" in the face of the new Ratchet game, even though it's going to have even more variety than the previous one. They'll give it a good score, I'm predicting it now (they probably should've given Tools of Destruction a better score, that was a ridiculously fun game, but I never played the PS2 Ratchet games so I can't compare it to the series' roots)
For some reason the person who disagreed with my post seems to struggle with more complicated tasks than clicking a mouse button. To lend charitable support to his/her limited abilities, I have posted the info below in the hope that one day, someone can help him/her to decipher it and lead this lost sheep in the right direction. All the best and good luck. http://www.insomniacgames.c... SEASON PREMIERE - Episode 37 - 5/21/09 - 0:59:33 - 40.9 MB The Full Moon show returns!

Bigger than ToD?! Several game modes?! o.0?! The return of MP?!!!!o.0!?!0.o?!?!! God I LOVE Sony's 1st/2nd party Devs.
I agree. I just hope the MP isn't shoehorned like many games lately. Bionic Commando, RE5 and Dark Sector are 3 that come to mind.... Super stoked for the game though. Insomniac have yet to disappoint me.
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time is best series in all time? I hope.
The podcast it back. Why was I not informed? I love the Full Moon show I didn't expect it until after E3. I will listen to it tomorrow while I am waiting for Kojima's counter hitting zero.
I can't FREAKING wait. Oh why doesn't anybody do platforming and third person shooting like Insomniac?
I prefer Ratchet to Resistance. You can see they are more at home with platforming than shooters. Resistance is great but they have way more experience with platformers. I am so excited.
don't know man. All i can say is i will be useing my student loan to pay for all these games lol. Damn i played the last R&C:TOD 5 times. And Quest for Booty 7 times can't wait for this game i love insomniac they know how to give fans what they want.
Yeah, you can really see Insomniac put their heart and soul in Ratchet. Resistance just feels like Insomniac want to grow up, but just have too much fun making Ratchet and it shows. Although I must say, the weapons and universe in Resistance are compelling but just don't seem to have the same amount of care and craft put into it, but the games are still great, but I will see Insomniac's best games as the Ratchets. For example; we should be tired of these games by now! and we're not! and that just proves how brilliant Insomniac are realising that fantastic cartoon'y sci-fi world they invest in Ratchet that nobody else can touch upon. Once Ratchet is over on PS3, if Insomniac moves on there's going to be a big void left.
If they finish Ratchet I am sure they will start into something else. They love working with Sony and I am sure Sony loves Insomniac.
I generally meant with the Ratchet franchise ending, not Insomniac moving on after PS3, I'm fairly sure they'll stick with Sony with PS4 or whatever. I think Sony'll probably buy them soon just like they did with ND, Insomniac would be another great addition to the PS3 tech team. Could they get away with another Ratchet trilogy? 'Ratchet and Clank Future Neo - Bomb Whole in Space'?
I will continue to play ratchet games for once insomniac continue to make it. I don't think they will buy them they are getting too big now. It is like people wanting Sony to buy Level 5. They own a stadium in Japan. If they can afford a stadium Sony would have to shell out tonnes of money.
I wish insomniac developed for all consoles. Not that I care i'll play it on PS3, but a lot of gamers are left out on how good their games have always been.
Now all i can think about is how the intro to this game is gonna be like are we gonna see a scene with clank first before we find out what Ratchet been up to. Or will it start with the new character from the trailer. OOO I CAN'T WAIT.
"Fans can also expect more variety in addition to several game modes" Ho no! Even more too much variety!! What will gamespot do? ;)
Once again, Insomniac and Naughty Dog will rule later this year, just like '07.
If they announce Heavenly Sword 2 at E3 it would make this year the most epic year for gaming.
I still have to play that, keep on hearing about it but never really thought of buying it.
You should get it is it £14.99 now on play.com
Insomniac and ND hardly ruled 07
On PS3 they certainly delivered the goods that year.
The best next gen platform game beside LBP, can't wait.
This is a day one purchase for me.
And people still wanna play it,you have a good series going. Ratchet and Clank ftw.
I'm a huge ratchet and clank fan. I absolutely loved ToD and cant wait to get my hands on ACIT.
Love the series! I hope they push the limits of the PS3.They look to advance the genre,not just ride on top of the wave,but go through the tube.Bring us more depth,style,open ended gameplay choices.Push the boundaries.... A new twist,a new gameplay mechanic,something that evolves platofrming/act/adv...This is the kind of dev house that can take a risk,go for something "more"... A sneak peak at that "rumored" RPG/ACT/platformer would be ideal too.... High up on my most wanted list without doubt.
I love this series and I think TOD had great graphics but I swear that if crack in time doesn't blow away TOD I'm going to be the first one in their saying "oOoOoOoOo Ratchet In clank 1.5!!!!!" Because their are a lot of sheep on this website, bahhhh bahhhh! Plus I love making people mad, haha, but deep down I just hope it looks even better :)
It will look better for sure. I think the picture above (as the whole trailer) is in-game.
I literally just beat Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Very enjoyable game right there if you haven't played it.
I never completed the first R&C: Future game. Problem was, I'd play alone but then friends would come over so we'd start a new game. Then other friends would come over and we'd start yet another new game. I've played the first 5 levels like 6 times. I never got around to finishing it. Since it doesn't have trophies, I won't be buying it again to play through. Call me lame, but trophies make games replayable.
Trophies do add replay value, but they're shallow compared to Tools of Destruction's weapons and uniform upgrades and unlockables that can actually be used in the game.
how about saving the lvls you beaten, =D its not like u have to start the first 5 lvls every time all over again. =D kinda strange explanation.
wow i forgot insomniac made ratchet.I'm sooo exited for this game. they truly are insomniac they pump out games as if they run a sweat shop. all AAA too, people always say naughty dog ftw, Sony Santa Monica ftw and GG ftw but we truly need to appreciate insomniac they choose to work on ps3:) so how about i just say ps3 ftw! since every studio that works exclusively for it own anything else.
Indeed this is great news. Can't wait!
first day for me
I have been a big fan of the series. I can't wait to put my hands on the new installment. I'm sure it's gonna rock!
this my 1st R&C game. I'm gonna DL the PSN game in the meantime though. Fun Fact- Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time was originally titled Ratchet & Clank: Clock Blockers but Insomniac had to change it at the request of SONY.
I love Ratchet & Clank and this was always going to be a day 1 purchase for me. Can't wait for it's release....so many amazing games coming this year.
after TOD and Quest fo BootaySweat, I'm just GOING to have to get this one.
wait for ths one!!!!i want a new one for the psp too!!
