It’s been a while since we’ve talked about Ratchet & Clank, but we wanted to give you an early scoop on a couple of things happening with everyone’s favorite lombax and robot duo!
First off, we’re excited to announce Captain Qwark’s “My Blaster Runs Hot” Ratchet & Clank Future Weapon Design Contest Sponsored by Gadgetron, which will hence be referred to in this post as CQMBRHRCFWDCSG. We’ll post the full details of the CQMBRHRCFWDCSG next Friday at www.ratchetandclank.com, but in the meantime if you want to get a head start on CQMBRHRCFWDCSG, you should brainstorm ideas for a new Ratchet & Clank weapon. To enter, you’ll need to provide a description of the weapon, as well as an image (this can be anything… even a Captain Qwark-style crayon blueprint!). The prize is going to be pretty epic, and every Ratchet & Clank fan will have a chance to recognize the winner’s hard work.
And in honor of CQMBRHRCFWDCSG, we’re having a sale on Quest for Booty! You can download this pirate-themed fun-size adventure off the PlayStation Network at for low sale price of $9.99. If you haven’t had a chance to play Quest for Booty yet, this is your chance!
Some other super exciting Ratchet & Clank news, DC Direct has revealed the line of Ratchet & Clank figures that will be available this fall. Here’s a special sneak peek image of the in-progress figures, though these guys are still getting some additional love! They should be available this fall!
Also, one small request from us at Insomniac in the spirit of March Madness, head over to the Escapist and vote for us! While you’re there, make sure to vote for some of our other good friends, like Naughty Dog, Guerrilla, SCE Santa Monica, and Zipper!
We’ll be back next week with all of the details on CQMBRHRCFWDCSG (including the grand prize), and some even more exciting news. Bryan Intihar and I will be around today to answer questions in the comments!
