Very cool Washington Post article on the game.
It might spoil a reveal about Rivet though.

Yeah; only negative comment I've seen is that they haven't done much to advance the series beyond graphically. Otherwise, everything I've seen has been fantastic.

Which, honestly, I'm cool with. I marathon'ed eight or nine Ratchet and Clank games a few summers back and never got sick of it.

It's a dumb one. That's never a complaint leveled against Mario games. If they're great and fun and look amazing, why not just enjoy them.

Yep. That's literally 99% of every franchise in existence.

And the one time they tried that with R&C, and made it kind of a tower defense game, it sucked.

Tied with Super Mario 3D World/Bowser's Fury and one point ahead of It Takes Two. Not a bad year so far!

Fine for me too since I didn't play the last game. They still gave it a great score (I think it was Kotaku).

You should. R&C (2016) is a fantastic, if too short, game. It's free with Playstation Plus.

Yeah, I know. My backlog is too damn big. As it is, I missed my goal of finishing Returnal before this launched.

You have admirable goals. I hope to finish Returnal before I die IRL, and honestly I don't like my chances.

I definitely need to check that out first. Will probably do that this summer then see if this drops in price later this year. This does look absolutely fantastic.

The new Ryno gun looks amazing. I bet you don't get it until the very end and after a LOT of grinding.

I wish this was out on the PS4 - I understand why it's not, but I'm still nowhere near being able to purchase a PS5.
Maybe by the time I get one, the game will be half-price.

Miles Morales just saw its first miniscule sale a couple of weeks ago (still active until tomorrow), a full 6+ months after its release.

That should give you an idea of when you might see the first R&C sale of any sort. This will undoubtedly be the biggest-selling exclusive game for the console until the next Horizon game.

I wish they took it one step further and pulled a Metal Gear...rather than spawning things from other Sony owned games, it should spawn things from games you own and have a save for.

Öalthough there have been other ways to take the sting out. Brandsmart had Demonís Souls for $50 and Miles Morales for $40 before Christmas. B&H had Demonís Souls for $50 before the holidays as well. Someone willing to settle for a used copy could get Miles Morales from GameFly for $23-$30 or Demonís Souls for $45 for the past few months. And then thereís stuff like Targetís B2G1F sales, although thatís a chunk of change to put down at once.

But yeah, Iíve been noticing the lack of widespread sales for Sonyís PS5 titles and have been wondering if this augurs badly for what we might have to look forward to.
