April is a great month for gamers with at least one major release from each First Party publisher. Xbox fans will be happy to know that Quantum Break will finally release, PlayStation fans will be nostalgic with the remastered Ratchet & Clank whilst Nintendo fans will be happy that they have a reason to turn on their Wii U with Star Fox Zero. Read about what the team is most looking forward to below.
Ratchet and Clank – Join me as I travel back 14 years and introduce you to an 11 year old Jake who oozed cool with that one billabong shirt he’d always wear alongside the silver necklace that left green stains around his neck. Apart from this cool factor, this Jake is worth talking about because he was excited for one particular game, Ratchet & Clank. I may have changed a bit over the last 14 years (thank goodness!), but my excitement for Ratchet & Clank has not.
The remake has me so keen to not only take control of everyone’s favourite Lombax and tin-can side kick, but also to see how they have reimagined this franchise for next-gen. From what I’ve seen from the trailers, the entertaining storyline (with a different take) is still there with the classic humour that had many a gamer chuckling in the original and the gameplay looks not only beautiful, but also comfortably familiar with enough new, shiny things too! The fact that shortly after this game’s release, the Ratchet & Clank movie is also hitting fans right in the face is just another reason to high five your younger self and try harder to convince your parents you have actually grown up.
