Lest we forget, the Ratchet and Clank series remains one of the most popular and critically acclaimed video game franchises of all time. The last iteration, Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction , was yet another fantastic effort by Insomniac, and we expect nothing less than excellence from the new installment, A Crack in Time .
You'll want to tune into the latest Full Moon Show podcast , which is both interesting and enlightening. Best of all, we get a fresh update on the team's progress, and as it turns out, A Crack in Time is closing in on the alpha stage of development and yes, it will be on display at E3 next week. The level they'll show off will be Krell Canyon, and apparently, internal play testing has already begun, so everything appears to be moving forward smoothly and quickly. As for other intriguing details, we urge you to listen to the entire podcast, but let's just say that this game will eclipse Tools of Destruction in terms of both size and diversity. Not surprisingly, the team is working on new gadgets for Ratchet to have at his disposal (they always do!), and the world ought to be bigger and more beautiful than ever before. It's yet another PlayStation 3 exclusive that is almost guaranteed to deliver the goods in spades, and if you've ever played an R&C adventure before, you're accustomed to wonderfully polished and endlessly entertaining quests. We can't wait to see that Krell Canyon level and as the year rolls onwards, we certainly expect more info and media to flow outwards from Insomniac.
They're one of our favorite developers, in truth. Honestly, if we only were able to play the R&C and Resistance franchises from here until the end of our days, it wouldn't be such a huge travesty.
