I'm not getting it. They support MS now and are no longer Sony exclusive. Fuck this game! Seriously though, I'm not into this kiddy type of shit games anymore. Fuck Ratchet, Fuck Crash, Fuck Banjo, Fuck donkey Kong, Fuck Viva Pinata, Fuck little big planet, Fuck em all. The only cool animal game mascot created was Sonic. I will still buy Sonics. All the other animal mascots can die.

What's wrong with "kiddy" games? They are for everyone. And because there is no violence in the games, that makes it kiddy? great logic! I guess that makes FIFA, Mario and pinball "kiddy" too



Xbox One, PS4 and Switch (+ Many Retro Consoles)

I've never really supported Insomniac Games. Ratchet & Clank games were always skipable IMO. The new game will make for a great PS Plus freebie one day.

I don't see any problem with that. I know if my favorite studio stopped making my favorite franchise I'd be hesistant to buy their.

Do you see people buying Rare games these days? I mean are there any Rare fans that actually bought Kinect Sports because Rare made it?

Honestly, those people are childish and should be disregarded. I won't support Insomniac games that are bad. I will support Insomniac games that are good. That is all there is to it.


And is this game good or bad?

I wouldn't know. I haven't played the game myself or heard about what other players think. Since it is a mainline R&C game, I can be more at ease since they have yet to screw those up. If it was another co-op game, I would be worried.

I gave All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault a shot (both through PS+ because after reading reviews I was weary of buying them) and even though FFA is much better than A4O, they're both very inferior to Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time (and even Quest for Booty, however bite-sized, it's a marvelous experience). Taking into account that Fuse is also a letdown (never tried it and not feeling any need to), my expectations are low indeed.

Nevertheless, the trailer was wonderful and I felt that magic spark that could signal Into the Nexus to be as good as ToD and ACiT. Will keep a close eye on this one but will wait for reviews and/or a demo before buying.

LOL, comparing todays Rare with Retro working on a classical Nitnendo Franchise. Made my day.

Way too many R&C games released this gen and last gen. This should have at least been Vita exclusive (remember that handheld you released Sony) to justify it's existence. I thought we wouldn't get another R&C game until the movie releases in 2015. I'm so hyped for that movie!


I second this

I don´t get your point



If a game is worth the purchasing price, I buy it. Simple.

Insomniac was one of my favorite developers heading into the 7th gen, almost entirely on the back of the original Resistance FoM. As good as the R&C franchise is, I must admit that the only R&C game I've bought was the DD title Quest for Booty, which I enjoyed immensely as a shorter gaming experience.

And while Insomniac remained a game developing company to like just due to the way they ran their company and developed their games, the games themselves began to lose me with Resistance 2, which over-hyped and under-delivered. By that point, Naughty Dog had become my favorite PS3 developer.

After Resistance 3, that only left R&C as a franchise to follow, which was never the reason I started playing their games in the first place.

When they announced their exclusive deal with SCE was done, I didn't give it much thought; it was a business decision and their management and bean counters projected they could generate more revenue and sell more games by expanding their available audience. Why not?

Would I buy an XB1 to play an exclusive Insomniac title? Hell no. It would have to be a ridiculously incredible game for that to happen, and I'm not being unreasonable here by any sane measure.
