Ratchet & Clank games doubts!

14 Replies 686 Views Created 06-06-2012

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is just a spinoff, right? It's not an official sequel?

 

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault aka Ratchet & Clank: Q-Force was announced some days ago. So is this one another canon sequel to the normal games? I mean, a sequel to Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time?

Its just a spin-off 4 player coop game.

A Crack in Time was the last game as part of the 'Future' trilliogy series with featured Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty as well. So Q-Force will just be a new direction for the series but nothing has been confirmed as yet.

Hello!

 

Don't forget that A Crack In Time is the 7th Ratchet & Clank canon game. So we can't separate the PS2 ones form the PS3 games.

 

I hope Q-Force is the 8th game.

Does it really matter anyway as long as its a R&C game by Insomniac Games then surely that's all that counts?

Its like me worrying about Michael Bay making a Star Wars film. As long as its from LucasFilm then it will fit in the universe and be canon, same goes for R&C no?

Sorry but that makes no sense.

 

Of course it matters if it's a sequel or just a spin-off.

 

Are you saying it's not important to know if it's a game that follows the canon story? Of course it is.

Depends if you're buying the games just for the story, or buying the games to collect stuff, shoot stuff and explore. I'm personally of the latter camp.

No, it's because the others are spin-offs, obviously.

Here's an idea - bother with games that are fun, ignore ones that aren't.

Works well for me ;)

Here's another one: play the games that are relevant to a franchise and that are fun as well.

 

Now that's the perfect combo.

If that is the case then it shouldn't matter which games are canon, and which are not then?

How about this... All 4 One is the equivalent of a 'Karting' title, be it Jak, Mario, Crash... The rest to the best of my knowledge are 'canon'...

 

The PS3 story games all fit under the 'Future' series.. that includes Q4B, which although an overblown demo, it still follows the events of ToD...

 

The upcoming Q-Force I know very little of, but it'll either be a true 'third part of the trilogy' or a side game like All 4 One..  buy it if the gameplay interests you... I didn't with All 4 One because I don't do multiplayer..

Well, that's true.

 

I think the next game is gonna be anotehr sequel to the classic Ratchet & Clank games.

 

Generally spinoffs are just boring or unfunny games, so I generally don't bother with them.
