I do too, very excited for this.

Despite my love though, I hope Insomniac cooks up something new after this.

Unf I love Ratchet & Clank, I've been a fan since the very first one.

I need to make some GAF buddies between now and its release so I can have co-op fun, because nobody else I know likes R&C as much as I do. Sad face.

Still always hyped for new R&C.

Is this 30fps? Or did they renege on their '60fps isn't worth it' statements? Because this game looks like it has taken a decent jump in visual quality from previous titles.

Mr. Zurkon is coming to KILL you.

I hope he's in the game, but I kind of doubt it considering you already have 3 allies.

Just beautiful, can't wait. Need a good fun co-op game and this sounds perfect everytime.

Now if they could just go to a HD re-release of the PS2 games so I could play them again.

I'm tired of the oversaturation of multiplayer-centric titles this gen (particularly the retooling of existing franchises), but the art sure does look pretty.

It wasn't retooled for MP this gen, it had MP last gen.

Ratchet's a pretty freaking amazing looking game in motion.

I mean the locales are colorful and eye-catching, but what really impresses is all the things that happen at once without a hitch.

You get 20 robots dancing while tentacles are coming from the sky plucking them one by one, then you start firing 100 sawblades and your robot companion is throwing bombs, then you hoverglide to another big area and set up the mayhem all over again.

It's no Uncharted, but it'll dazzle.

That's my biggest worry. I like single player games. I don't give a rat's ass about multiplayer and I love the Ratchet games. Can you play this game alone as well?

I think the R&C games are the closest thing we will ever get to playing a Pixar quality game in terms of visuals.

Loving the art and the screens look very detailed. I think Insomniac's choice to go with 30fps was a correct one after all - ACiT struggled to maintain it anyway and this looks so much better, perhaps even in 720p native.

Ratchet games always look nice, even in the non-bullshotted state, but come on now.

By the way, love the artwork for this one. Still not sold on the concept, though.

Was 30fps when I played it last.

Great game.

The art direction is magnificent. Let's hope that the change to 30 fps allows the devs to bump it up to proper 720p.

If you're alone, you have an AI buddy with you. I'm kinda worried too, I'm not sure if much people will be playing it 6+ month after its release. I hope that it will be fun to play with random people too, I like the concept of complex coop games, but if you have to carefully plan and set up your play, it's pretty annoying. I want to play a game when I feel like playing, not when I have to because my friends are waiting for me.

I'm not too worried because R2's coop didn't have any of these problem for me, unless the team really sucked, it was pretty nice to play with random people.

Looks wonderful, but i'm very weary about the 4 player focus. Online communities are so unreliable and since i almost never pick up games day 1, i'd hate for the community to be dead before i finally play it.

While I think there is online play, it feels to me this game is more about playing with people on your couch. Moreover, online "communities" are tough when you need fifteen people, not three. ALSO, the other 3 people can be AI-controlled, so you'll be able to play it no matter what; you don't need to find others.

And this is why the Internet exist. I'll be up for some online co-op with you and anyone else once the game comes out. No real life friends necessary!

Game looks beautiful as expected.
