Qore Episode 17 – Featuring Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, EyePet, Blur and Borderlands

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Sep 30, 2009 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

With the return of Ratchet & Clank later this month, the October episode of Qore features a loveable Lombax, a precious pet, reckless racing and wasteland wanderers.

Is Ratchet truly the last Lombax in this universe? Can he locate and rescue his buddy Clank? The storyline that began in 2007’s Tools of Destruction reaches an epic conclusion in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Veronica Belmont visits Insomniac Games to step into Ratchet’s shoes…err…actually, his gravity boots.

At this year’s E3, SCEA impressed the audience with a demonstration of the upcoming PS3 motion controller, but there is yet another innovation on the way: the EyePet! Audrey Cleo meets her new virtual pal and demonstrates how PS3 technology could change the way we interact with games in the future.

Bizarre Creations is returning to its roots to rev up the racing genre with imaginative power-ups, weapons, and a distinctive multiplayer component. We take BLUR for a test drive to see what sets it apart from the crowd.

What do you get when you blend the RPG and shooter genres, add intense co-op action and a groundbreaking content generation system, and coat it with a cell-shaded “concept art” style? You get Borderlands—the new title from Brothers in Arms developer Gearbox Software. Qore visits the Dallas, Texas studio to learn more about their unique creation.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 2003

To celebrate the release of Gran Turismo for the PSP, we’re offering all Qore subscribers and purchasers a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren ’03 in an exclusive red color to download and use with the game on any PSP system. We’ve also got an exclusive Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time PS3 theme and an exclusive UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves PS3 theme for download.

Look for Episode 17 tomorrow.

Are those themes going to be dynamic? I’m guessing no, since it wasn’t mention. Once you go dynamic, you can’t go back; so, I’m not interested in static themes anymore.

Nifty!

@ mywhitenoise

I’m renewing because in the past year, I’ve gotten more at least $25 worth of free games and add-ons as a Qore subscriber. It’s a good bargain, really.

@megs
all the free games theyve given were released months before they offered them for free. I dont have the patience for that (if its a game I really want).

Looks like this will be a good episode. Nice to see my subscription isn’t going to waste. I love that Borderlands in on this episode, it deserves the attention.

Looking forward to the new episode.

I take it both of the themes will be static, normal themes rather than dynamic?

@ 2 – mywhitenoise.

People buy this because it’s not that expensive per episode, you get free games, Betas and see all the upcoming games.

No one is forcing you to buy it, but many people appreciate Qore as I do.

@ 2
Because they want to. (I do too) :]

Well that’s lame….Im not getting GT for the psp. (useless free limited car for me) Why not give us $10 credit to use in HOME to buy a few things in the mall (or a free playstation1 game).
Two dynamic themes? I was hoping for a dynamic themes, but I doubt it.

@31 you get beta keys when drifter projects comes out. I’m looking forward DC Online when it ever comes out. I think 25 bucks best money I spent on it. Just for free beta keys if you get lucky.

I hope those two themes are dynamic, if not no thx. And hope this will be the last month we get static themes, Qore needs to start going with dynamic themes.

Why bother doing this? Qore isn’t on the PSP too is it? I don’t see why you would offer PSP content in Qore. This has to be the WORST downloadable I have ever seen in Qore as it’s useless to A LOT of people. This looks like it will be yet another terrible edition of Qore.

It would be cool if you could set the PS3 to automaticly download our Qore Episodes.

But needs to be a Option you can turn off too.. because theres thos people that wouldnt like that option.

+ plaztiksyke on September 30th, 2009 at 5:40 pm said:

yay, EyePet coverage!

Don’t know if I’ll resubscribe: I’ve never gotten any download codes for PS1 games via email, my support requests have gone without reply, and the free PSN games have been the same for months and months.

If they can correct the problems, and show some other value, I’ll re-sub. Maybe the EyePet coverage will be deep enough that it will get me interested again. The cursory Brutal Legend coverage from last episode, the only thing in the whole episode I was excited about, was extremely short and disappointing.

Now, a beta download for EyePet (that actually works) would totally change my mind :)

What ever happened to Dynamic themes?? We got a few at the beginning of their capability, but they are all 3 bucks and based on pretty boring games…We need more, especially free ones with QORE, that would be really nice =)
