Review: Edge of Nowhere

For $40, you can experience around three hours of a white guy with a gun battling aliens that can infect humans in Insomniac Games' VR debut, and no, it isn't Resistance, but obviously that isn't a stretch for the developer. That means you'...   read

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 ...   read

Review: Ratchet & Clank

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. Not to mention th...   read

Hands-on with Insomniac's crack at metroidvania, Song of the Deep

If you're going to make a metroidvania, getting your acronym (SotD) as close to the gold standard (SotN) is a good a start as any, I suppose. Song of the Deep is the surprise, GameStop-published (the store and Game Informer magazine owner, ...   read

Is there space for Ratchet & Clank?

Sometimes websites make you click to the next "page" when reading a long article, or embed things in galleries instead of vertically down a page. This is either anachronistic print hold over or shrewd pageview maximization, but it is alw...   read

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 ...   read

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...   read

Slow Down, Bull is a strange one for Insomniac Games

When I think of Insomniac Games, a few titles come to mind: Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the (pre-Skylanders) Dragon, and Sunset Overdrive. The studio's new game, Slow Down, Bull, is not like those -- it's a smaller project for Steam inspired b...   read
