Ratchet & Clank on PS4 is the series' fastest-seller

I've seen a lot of love for the new Ratchet & Clank game, but I couldn't tell if that was the social media echo-chamber effect or if there really were a bunch of people getting way into Insomniac's refresh of the PlayStation 2 original ...

Check out Flixist's review of Ratchet & Clank (movie)

Hello! Long time no see. How's kicks? I just reviewed the new Ratchet & Clank movie over at Destructoid's sister site Flixist and thought you fine folks might be interested in it given that it's a movie based on a video game, and t...

When you're just here so you don't get fined

Look, I think we've all been there. Everyone around you is just so god damn on and you're just there, going through the motions because you have to -- or you're not even going through the motions. You just show up. You're a warm body. Ever...

 
Ratchet & Clank review
I have no particular affinity towards the Ratchet & Clank series. I've played just about every mascot platformer under the sun, but I was always more of a Jak and Daxter man, among a litany of other classics. No...   read

Let the inimitable Captain Qwark intro the new-old Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank is back with a retelling of the original game. And it's coming out April 12, my birthday, or as some of you may affectionately know it: Dark Souls III day. The lovable Captain Qwark has the skinny as unreliable narrator...

Devs Play season two has over five hours of game makers chatting

Whether it's games, movies, books, whatever, I love listening to creators talk about their craft. It can be enthralling to hear how the creative process differs between not only mediums, but individuals. One video series I'm fond of is Devs...

Here's how Ratchet met Clank

There's a reason Clank has spent a decade being Ratchet's sidekick. He kind of owes him. Ratchet saved his little robot life, after all. At PlayStation Experience, Insomniac Games took the stage to show a cinematic from the upcoming title ...

Ratchet & Clank has some great aesthetics, channels its inner Star Fox

As a part of the on-going Paris Games festivities, Insomniac put out a nice little gameplay video for the upcoming Ratchet & Clank game. The tropical setting really pops on PS4, and everything generally looks great. Nothing too re...

The first full Ratchet and Clank trailer is not great

The first full trailer for the Ratchet and Clank movie has been released, and it's ridiculously generic. I get the "In a world..." joke, and I get the overwrought narrator, but this is the most kids movie-ass trailer I've seen in years. The...

 
Ratchet and Clank
As far as the action bits go, Clank generally takes the backseat while Ratchet is doing his thing. Sure, Clank facilitates some of it, but it's a tempered role. He's a sidekick who knows his job. That makes the relationship w...   read

PS4 could use more games like Ratchet & Clank

Ratchet & Clank movie coming next April, game delayed into 2016

Ratchet & Clank isn't a series you hear talked about that often. It's a shame, because the last major game in the franchise was actually pretty good. Thankfully, next year you'll be seeing plenty of the duo, in the form of both a featur...

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus came out today, btw
