HD option should be up soon. It's now (finally) up in all of its glory!

Contains both gameplay from Ratchet as well as Clank, across a bunch of different levels/environments. Probably some of the first real gameplay direct feed gameplay footage we've seen.

And for those those of you who missed the new batch of screens that were released earlier today;






















Original raw file is now up for download here.

I'm not watching until it finishes processing the HD option. R&C needs to be seen in the best resolution possible... I am fully expecting it to blow my already high expectations away!

I liked the use of cover. There seem to be quite a bit of cover stumps placed around levels. Ratchet used one in a good way. The harder modes will be a great experience. I wonder if the platforming will ramp up for the hard modes. Like 2 lines of fire for those rotating platforms, and 4 patrolling spotlights for that gate thing.

I'm playing straight through on Hard right now, and it's sort of weird when I realize just how much traversal/platforming this game has. Definitely a higher mix.

How hard is Hard? The games have always been somewhat on the easy side of things, so is Hard mode really a true hard mode?

We're still tuning it. The idea being that Casual is easier than TOD, Normal is harder than TOD, and Hard is for true Ratchet fans.

Nope, both are 720p, 60fps.

That sounds good to me. I'll tackle the game on Hard right away for those sweet Trophies you guys have added. :D

That's nice to hear. Just wondering, can you change the difficulty up/down when you hit replay mode (ie beat the game)?

Oh snap, I spoke too soon. Look like the difficulty of those fire hazards were about to ramp up. And about those more flame streams, and spotlights I talked about earlier. I doubt that will happen (two eyes, one exhaust for the flame stream on the spinning disks), all would be needed is to make things move faster. For hard maybe things would just hit you harder or your health regen slower forgot how it's handled in QFB. Yea this game will be quite a challenge enough I think :D

Sounds good. Can you talk about which parameters are changed (reduced hit points for Ratchet, more hit points for enemies, more enemies etc)?

As an aside, I think its really helpful when developers explain difficulty modes in precise terms (as opposed to the usual "this mode is for X kind of player"). You rarely see it though.

Day one, looks beautiful, the bit in space where Ratchet lands on the that small planet made me think of Mario Galaxy, not that that's a bad thing though, I'm liking what looks like extra focus on plat forming.

I always enjoyed the sexual names they gave the other Ratchet titles. I miss those clever names now.

They actually used to be...the original PS@ Ratchets and the Jak games ran on the same engine (developed by Naughty Dog) hence the many references to the games in each others ips
