A Message from President Qwark

Copernicus Qwark's Avatar Posted by Galactic President

Greetings Citizens!

As I sit here in my presidential compound, sipping a grubsnucker daiquiri and watching reruns of Unicop (now available for purchase on my holo-net site), I can’t help but reminisce about my rise to Galactic President of the Polaris Galaxy. Sure, some might say I was a bit callous in my ascension, but homicidal planet thieves aside, I think the whole thing went off without a hitch. The galaxy is safe, unemployment is at an all-time low, and my approval rating has never been… well, the galaxy is safe.

This era of awesomeness does come with some bad news, I’m afraid. It was brought to my attention that Insomniac Games decided to name my upcoming adventure Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. When my agent finally returned my call and informed me that I had once again been excluded from the title, I was enraged. Not for myself, mind you – after all, what am I if not humble? No, my fellow citizen, I was enraged for you. How many years have you waited with bated breath for Captain Qwark to get top billing? How many times have you thrown your arms into the sky and called out “When is it going to be Qwark’s time?!”

Enraged by this injustice, I took my plight directly to planet Earth. A hotshot Sony producer named Greg Phillips informed me (between sips of an energy drink I’m fairly certain would be classified as toxic in my galaxy) that he personally named the latest game after his favorite R&B group. Victory, it seemed, was beyond my vice-like grasp.

Desperate, I took my fight to Ted Price himself. The Earthians had clearly established this man as some kind of king, or shaman warrior. He shrewdly offered me a chance to change the title of the game – but only if I vanquished him in a cage match using crude weaponry carved from tools found in the Insomniac broom closet. After three rounds and a few surgical strikes using my broom sword, I vanquished my opponent. Pinned under the might of my biceps, Shaman Price agreed to let me change the name to a title befitting of a revered galactic champion like myself. So today, before all of you, I reveal the new name of our upcoming adventure:

Copernicus Qwark's Awesomely Epic 3D Adventure Through Time & Space for PS3

I think we can all agree this title truly encapsulates the spirit of all that is great about this wonderful franchise. It obviously had a strong impact on the Sony marketing team, as my phone hasn’t stopped ringing since I scrawled it on a cocktail napkin after three whole minutes of brainstorming. If I ever return one of those calls, I’ll be sure to wish Kevin Butler a hearty “You’re welcome.”

So enjoy Copernicus Qwark’s Awesomely Epic 3D Adventure through Time and Space. Revel in the splendor of a third D, courtesy of your favorite superhero. For this will be the crown jewel in my long and illustrious career. Finally, my friends, it’s Qwark’s time!

Sincerely,
Copernicus L. Qwark

About time Qwark gets what he deserves. Day after day, time after time I’ve been forced to lower my head in shame after seeing him not get the attention and recognition he ultimately deserves. It’s a disgrace to the entire universe, and I’m sure this is just the start of a new era in Qwark recognition.

JoKeR_CoLd96 said:

April 1st, 6:26 am

This is now my favorite PSB post here. Also keep up the art Qwark, I better see an art gallery somewhere in this game. :)

Honestly, I’m not that amused by this “April Fool’s.” In fact, I think that actually IS a better name than “All 4 One.” And while I think the solution is to come up with a better serious name, they SHOULD make a game for this character, release it as a $29.97 game, and ACTUALLY call it by that pretty little silly title right there. I could see it outselling All 4 One purely on the intentionally immature marketing.

But then again, I also think Kevin Butler deserves his own PS3 game. XD

Please oh please let this be an additional available cover!

FINALLY!
For the past years that i have been playing ratchet and clank games, i just have been saying to myself, ‘I wish there was a game solely based around Qwark’. This is exactly what i have been waiting for! All of the other Ratchet and Clank games are SOOO BORING! with Qwark, i am sure that the action will be ten trillion times better, and feature better character development, with a serious plot-line based around how bolts are destroying the economy, and the environment.

Thank you Insomniac, and most importantly, Captain Qwark!

palitococo said:

April 1st, 6:53 am

I just have one question. Its smell-o-vision what i imagine (smell effects)?, because if it is i need to purchase a gas mask for certain areas of the game. And only 3 1/2 players?

Xideo said:

April 1st, 6:59 am

Quark man, you don’t need those Ratchet and Clank losers stinking up your game! They had..like 6 or 7 while all you had was some minigames in Up Your Arsenal :(. Time to go solo bro and save the world and galaxy from galactic menace #456712!

I know this is an April Fools Day joke, but I would probably buy a game with Quark as the lead. Sounds like fun.

Finally! I’ve been really disappointed by the lack of support for the Crotchetizer peripheral. Glad to see you guys finally got your heads out of your… crotches?

ElektroDragon said:

FORMIK said:

Sindred said:

April 1st, 9:18 am

Ok so I know it’s a joke, but if this was the box art and name, I would display this in front of all of my games… like forever. Consider it.

TruEve said:
