Review: Knack

Every system launch needs a good platformer, right? Knack is a bit different from, say, Crash Bandicoot or Ratchet and Clank, but it does feel like it takes a bit from both games. Of course, that has a lot to do with the its creator, Mark C...

Pairing is caring: Knack co-op trailer teaches teamwork

Word on the streets is that Knack is deceptively hard. Everyone that gets their hands on it seems like they're dying way more than they expected. Maybe it's not kiddie's first game, after all. Luckily, you can summon a co-op partner t...

Mark Cerny answers your PS4 and Knack questions

PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny has all but surpassed painter Bob Ross as the person I'd most want to go on a cross-country road trip with. He could just talk for the duration and I'd be stuck in a relaxed state of mind, hanging on...

Knack is conceptually sound, but lacking in execution

"I'm a burning piece of wood. I'm going to punch a robot. He's going to hate that." Jonathan and Spencer played Knack at PAX Prime 2013 and, from the sound of it, this may not be quite the PlayStation 4 launch title some of us were hoping ...

There's something nice about PS4's Knack

Knack came out of nowhere. This PS4 title is quite a bit different from what you'd expect for a launch title from Sony, but this makes it a standout in the large pile of upcoming next-gen games. As it stands right now, there's nothing else ...
