Ratchet & Clank has been in a weird limbo for a few years now. A Crack in Time was intended to be the final chapter in the duo’s story but we kept on getting games. All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault were spin-off games, Into the Nexus was a shorter game that felt more like an epilogue than a full game and they have been in cameos and characters in several other games. To help promote the upcoming movie at the end of April, the original Ratchet & Clank has been remade and it is the team’s first game on the PlayStation 4. With a few changes to the game’s plot and structure, does Ratchet & Clank stand tall in this next generation of gaming?

Well this game took a long time to come overseas. News of this bizarre crossover began in 2010 when it was announced. It was finally released in Japan in 2012 and fans of both series bellowed to have it localized. In a common move by both companies, Capcom and Nintendo were initially hesitant for localization of the game due to the risk of low sales. Two years after its initial Japanese release and 5 months before the North American release, Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was finally localized. Fans overseas can finally enjoy the puzzle solving finger-pointing adventure.

Written by Twisted Ideas

The great yet overlooked Devil May Cry Reboot is having a second chances on the next-gen consoles. DmC Definitive Edition will come with all the DLC from the game plus several new modes and gameplay adjustments.

At the end of the trailer there was a brief announcement of Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition. Not much was shown other than the title but Vergil was the one to make the announcement.

It has been four years since the first game of the Castlevania Reboot was released. After a 3DS tie-in bridging the two games, we finally get answers to the first game’s final scenes.
