Ratchet & Clank

Discuss anything related to the Ratchet & Clank universe!

Since that is a very broad topic, I figured the thread would function like this: One Symthician can at any time write a question, and the others quote that question when they reply. I'm new to Off-Topic; maybe you have an established method that works better. We'll see what it turns into.

Abbreviations

Whether you use these abbreviations is up to you, but I think everyone lazy should be allowed to.

RC1 - Ratchet and Clank, the original
GC /RC2 - Going Commando /Locked and Loaded
UYA /RC3 - Up Your Arsenal
DL - Deadlocked / Gladiator
ToD - Tools of Destruction
QfB - Quest for Booty
CiT - Crack in Time
FFA - Full Frontal Assault

The games not listed either have a too short name or are too obscure to get an abbreviation.


I'll start: What is the strongest memory you have from any game?
Mine is from when I was 10-11 playing RC1: the Blargian Snagglebeast on Umbris, Quark's HQ. I was genuinely terrified of it. So terrified that I would rather grind bolts for the RYNO on Eudora for what felt like half a year, than try to improve my fighting against it. When I finally could afford it, I decided I might stand a chance against the creature. Not knowing how extremely overkill the RYNO was, I had planned to save it for the last part of the battle. I got a pleasant surprise when I launched the first volley :D

Nope. Deleted so only mods can see the contents. It has some... interesting stuff there... *squints @Riesig <.< *

Ah Ratchet & Clank 2, one of the first games I ever played... So many good memories about that. All the fancy, different and interesting weapons, including the fact they just got better and different after playthroughs.

I'll start: What is the strongest memory you have from any game?

Uhh... Uuuuuuuh... Possibly the strongest is when we entered the museum easter egg in Ratchet & Clank 2. Dem time condition.

I am going to be cheap and ask: Which game is your favorite in R&C series and why?
My answer: While R&C2 was the one I played first, I think I liked R&C3 more because it was simply just a upgraded version (oh the games back in the days). DL comes close with its coop playing tho.

A Ratchet and Clank thread? Oh HELL yes! :D

My gosh, I have no idea where to begin. My fondest memory? Definitely replaying planet Eudora on Ratchet and Clank 1 over and over again. The soundtrack to that level was killer and it was just a fun to play in general. I would say that "Up Your Arsenal" was my favorite of the series though. I frickin' loved upgrading my weapons to their highest level, beating the game, upgrading them again in the Challenge Mode.

I was young when I first played Ratchet and Clank. I was probably like 11 or 12 and I didn't really know how to play the game. I would continuously play the same levels repeatedly wondering why I could never progress. There was the Trespasser gate on Eudora that I could never unlock, the alien queen on the Blarg Tactical station that I couldn't reach to get the Grind Boots because the enemies were too hard for me, and the Sand Shark challenge on Aridia that I never found (just to name a few of my shortcomings). I dd eventually do all those things though, it just took me two years of owning the game. :/
To Aim Assist or not to Aim Assist, that is the question.

Nope. Aim Assist or bust; here's why:

Which game is your favorite in R&C series and why?
I've played RC1-3, DL, ToD, CiT, Size Matters and Nexus, of which I have completed all but the last two. My favorite is Going Commando. AFAIK it has the highest amount of weapons with 24, including my beloved Meteor Gun, Megarocket Cannon, Visibomb and Tesla Claw; hoverbikes and space combat; wrench upgrades; an unexpected plot twist and hilarious lines from Mr Fizzwidget. And Angela Cross is hot :love: Up Your Arsenal takes a close second place with the improved upgrade system, the Galactic Rangers missions, the hovership and the cool boss fights.

I would continuously play the same levels repeatedly wondering why I could never progress.
Haha. That reminds me of the time I was screwing (pun unintended) around on Eudora, throwing my wrench at transports as they passed by. Suddenly,

*ding* You just earned a skill point!
"Yay, I'm so skilled! Let's keep doing this until I earn another one."

I gave up after 20 minutes :( The skill points were hidden in the Goodies section on the menu, which only first appears when you enter Challenge Mode.
