Ratchet & Clank HD Collection Confirmed

The PS2 classics will make their debut in glorious HD later this year.

Insomniac Games has decided to just come on out and confirm what we pretty much already knew – that a Ratchet & Clank HD collection is on its way to the PlayStation 3. The announcement was made by Ted Price via the Official PlayStation Blog and kicks off the Ratchet & Clank 10th Anniversary Celebration.

The collection will contain Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up your Arsenal. The games are being remastered to a full 1080p by Idol Minds, developers of Pain and the upcoming Vita dungeon crawler Warrior’s Lair.

Additionally the collection will support 720p stereoscopic 3D, Platinum Trophies for each title in the collection, and the online multiplayer for Up Your Arsenal.

North American gamers will have to wait until this fall to pick this highly anticipated collection up, but European gamers will be able to start saving the galaxy all over again this spring. The delay between titles is reportedly a result of Insomniac having  “something very special planned for our North American fans to celebrate the 10th Anniversary.”

Any ideas what those plans could be? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!

Definitely excited to find out what that special suprise is. Also very excited for this in general, though I'm a bit upset that they didn't include Deadlocked, as that's still considered mainline. Oh well, it's not that great of a game anyway.

I'm excited about the game as I loved the originals on ps2, but I find it sad as America will get that special something and the rest of the world isn't intact I find it slightly racist where America gets almost all the good stuff for every game in this world

"Keep"ing the Identity of Dragon Age Intact

The Dragon Age series has something of an identity crisis, due in large part to its disjointed development history. Even though Dragon Age: Origins came out a couple of years after the first Mass Effect, it was actually announced way back in 2004 as a PC exclusive. The roots of Origins could be found in BioWare’s classic Baldur’s Gate series, and the design sensibilities of the game were far removed from the company’s more recent action/RPGs like Jade Empire and Mass Effect. Dragon Age 2 was clearly very influenced by the success of Mass Effect 2, and the input of now BioWare parent company EA was easy to see. While Dragon Age 2 alienated some fans of Origins it also created a new set of people invested in the world of Thedas. Now we have a third entry in the series that has the difficult task of keeping old players invested while trying once again to do a “soft reboot” of the franchise. How does BioWare hope to craft a new adventure but still make players feel like they made their mark on the world? Enter the Dragon Age Keep.
