    HD Classics: Ratchet and Clank

    i think it deserves its own thread.



    Classics HD: Ratchet and Clank Trilogy has been given a firm release date of May 16th. The game will have the first three Ratchet and Clank games released on one disc.

    The game will include new trophies, 3D support, 8 player multiplayer and run at 60 fps.

    not really needed for a thread, R&C is kinda of niche genre and most of us here probably played most of these on PS2. Great to see them remade though...

Nor can there be a greater proof of its decadence than the fact that the nearer people are to the Church, the head of their religion, the less religious are they.”

    I'm thrilled by this news, myself. Three superb games that are head and shoulders above the other platforming titles. Up Your Arsenal, in particular, is a spectacular game and for my money one of the finest titles in the last decade. The perfect mix of humor, action, and challenge.

    I'm chuffed with this personally, as I only ever played the 3rd game in the series. Ironically I've got all but the 3rd game on the PS3 =P

    It seems it's been that way forever.
    So if you don't eat pigs and we don't eat pigs,
    Why not not eat pigs together?

    Luckily, you are not missing a damn thing in the PS3's case.

    Is "All 4 One" not very good? I really enjoyed "A Crack In Time" so I'd have expected the most recent entry to be at least as good.

    Looks like I'll be buying this instead!

    I didn't like it at all. The game is designed to be played with friends. That's not such a bad thing, but the mechanics don't really work and the ally AI, if you decide to play by yourself, is remarkably stupid. They wouldn't have gotten away with half the crap the AI does ten years ago. The game is also pretty boring and has some other bugs not related to AI that can halt the game. A rushed, slipshod job overall.

    there is a demo of that on PSN if you really want to find out why it's the worse RAC of them all. buy the HD remakes. 1 and 2 will make you fall in love with the series all over again, whilst 3 will indicate when the series went in the wrong direction by focusing more on weapons...

    You didn't like Up Your Arsenal as much as the first two? Interesting opinion, though I can see your point with the weapons. It was more action-centric and less platform-centric than the first two, but the game design and the humor were so good I didn't much notice, to be honest.

    i suppose it's to do with why i play games. i have never liked any game that is centred on scoring the highest score, or games that ask you to survive against oncoming enemies... i play to explore; to escape into an imaginary world and feel like you are part of it. i love that feeling you get when you enter a new location and see the potential exploration before you. when guns are introduced that exploration and sense of finding a new world becomes secondary (for me at least)

    I wonder why they put it as a selling point that the game runs at 60fps. The game ran at 60fps on the PS2 right? That would be a bigger selling point if it was a game that previously ran at 30fps or lower running at 60fps.

    Anyways, this will definitely be a treat for anyone who hasn't been able to play R&C1-3. Trophy support will give an added incentive to explore and upgrade all of your arsenal.

    I think it's more just for confirmation since not all HD Collections have it at 60fps.
