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

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...   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

Sunset Overdrive gets a permanent price drop, trades freaks for robots

There's a lot of activity in Sunset City despite the fact that the town is a shell of what it once was. Those over-caffeinated freaks flood the streets, and there's one guy bouncing about like he's the one with 15 too many Red Bulls in him...   read

Sunset Overdrive bounces to a filthy oil rig for first DLC

Sunset Overdrive shows how live-action trailers should be done

Live-action trailers for videogames can be entirely hit or miss. It's to the point where I'm usually curious to check them out even if I have little if any interest in the source material. Will they be awesome, or a total train wreck? Eith...   read

But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.   read
