Sony Fanboys Won't Support Insomniac Anymore?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony Fanboys Won't Support Insomniac Anymore?

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!

Hmm never played a game from them or at least I dont think I did - played a R & C game but I dont think they made the PSP one....or did they? o.O

Anyways...time to get into R & C.... a bit behind with the times....I blame my nintendo fanboyism for that ;p.

This game is also on PS3, thus one less PS4 title to brag about.



wat?

This logic is broken. The game was never something to brag about on the PS4, since it was never announced for the PS4. How does a console lose a game that it never had? The amount of PS4 games to brag about is not affected by this.

If anything, this may be good for the PS4 since it shows that Insomniac are still making Playstation exclusives.

When it was teased, some thought it would be for PS4. Fan logic can be broken, you know this. Im sure it would be nice if it was on PS4 so its yet another game to add to lists.

You said the PS4 lost a title to brag about. You must be implying that people were using this game to brag about the PS4.

But that's wrong because: "thinking the game might be on the PS4" =/= "bragging about the game being on the PS4"

-

As for the "Im sure it would be nice if it was on PS4", that's just shameless backtracking and you now it. I'm sure it would be nice for Playstation Legion (as you say) if GTA V was a PS3 exclusive. But just because it's not exclusive, that doesn't mean the Ps3 lost a title for the wishlist. You cannot lose something you don't have.

You are wrong (again).

I'm impressed that, bar two replies in this thread, everyone's being pretty sensible about this. (edit: three replies, Sales2099 showed up)

The majority of people who would actually go out and buy these Ratchet & Clank games were never upset about Sunset Overdrive (although admittedly, I'd like to play the game but I'm not dropping £429 to get access to it).

The issue was the increasingly erratic and unfocused Insomniac we'd seen since 2009.

It was never a case of "hmpf, I'm never buying an Insomniac title again" but more "I won't buy anymore Insomniac titles if they're going to be up to the standard of All 4 One or Fuse".

Obviously, there's still time for this title to fall into that pit too. But they're saying all the right things. This is the Ratchet game I've been wanting for 4 years. Characters returning. Storylines being revisited. Traditional gameplay.

And I think anyone who was a true fan of the series would recognise the potential here and wouldn't 'leave' Insomniac. Like I've said in another thread, I could never truly give up on them because they're still the developer who have provided my favourite gaming experiences time and time again.

I think that most feelings hurt over Sunset Overdrive are because while the game looks like it could be a ton of fun, it's an exclusive... but Insomniac fanboys are probably fanboys for R&C (mostly...), and would love to see more R&C. Thus, we have a problem of, do I need multiple consoles in order to play all of their games? That upsets me a bit, because I don't have the money to spend on two consoles, but I do want to play all of their games. It just felt like a slap in the face to do that. I don't believe that the cloud is necessary any more than any other argument we've ever heard about how X exclusive is only possible on Y console. However, I'm sure they probably got a pretty good deal from MS to do it... Still frustrating.

But yes, their recent titles have been disappointing. They aren't even terrible games. Just okay ones. They had a lot of potential to be great, and really failed to execute.

And I can't help but get excited for ItN. ACiT is still one of my all time favourite games. Plus, Talwyn returning? Voiced by Tara Strong? Yes please! That was the one area I was let down by ACiT. Talwyn, along with Cronk and Zephyr, were pretty much just dropped completely.

If you're talking about Ratchet and Clank Size Matters, then no they didn't develop that one. It was developed by High Impact Games.

It's actually a VERY good Ratchet and Clank game for the PSP.

I am disappointed with insomniac not because of them making M$ exclusives but because they have become a pretty crappy developer over the years.

Resistance? meh
Ratchet games? Meh. I do however like a Crack in Time. One of the best games this gen. Deserves more sales. This new ratchet looks to be like that so i am going to purchase it. Lets see how goo they really are

Resistance: Fall of Man: 4.16M. I enjoyed this game at the time
Resistance 2. 2.37M. Was really hyped. Played the game couldn't finish it
Resistance 3. 1.31M. Tried the demo, thought it was decent. Didnt purchase encase it was like no2

R3 is really nothing like 2. They almost changed the whole game. It's more like Half-Life 2 than Resistance 2 and it's really good.

OT: I will buy it if the game is good. I do not give two shits about Insomniac "betraying" Sony or whatever. What I do care about, though, is that their games have been crappy for quite some time now but since this is a traditional R&C game I am sure it will be good.

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'm not really here!

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi
