Bloggers Wanted: Just For Kicks

There are so many aspects of a story that tend to get overlooked, but one of the hugest is the trusty sidekick. These characters are mostly subjected to simply being the butt of a joke or only exist to service the narrative, but they help i...

Here are six games to play with the tiny humans in your life

I'm creeping into my late twenties, which means a lot of the people in my social circles are getting married and deciding to have children. Instead of buying sarcastic t-shirts about how I am very much not about that life right now, while s...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

It's mostly Ratchet and very little Clank at Tokyo Game Show

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 work. From the t...

PS4 could use more games like Ratchet & Clank

The best and worst games of the week

The Playstation 4 dominated this weeks review schedule and rightfully so. Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Resogun, and Contrast dominated our postings -- and as of last night my Facebook wall (please turn off your notifications friends) -- bu...

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

As a fan of the Ratchet & Clank series, I have to admit a little bit of shame in having forgotten that Into the Nexus was almost here until Chris' review published yesterday. In the midst of all the hubbub around the coming P...

Review: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

For whatever reason, the Ratchet & Clank series never really grabbed me during the PlayStation 2 era. Maybe I was spending too much time playing Jak and Daxter (or perhaps I was adverse to games with ampersands in their titles...
