Is it time for a change?

Ratchet and Clank's most dangerous adventure.
'Ratchet and Clank', two absolute gems of the 'Playstation' generation have tackled countless foes. Toppled empires and traveled through space and time to reunite, as any true friends do. They, along with 'Jak and Daxter' have given me unforgettable hours of nonsense and fun. Have they ever hit a bum note with any of their titles, in my opinion, no, like wine they've not aged but matured even though their humour might not be called that. Their villains are unforgettable, their adventures outrageous and their weaponry.....sublime.
With Ratchet and Clank up first, Jak and Dax will follow.
Then today, 23rd of April the gaming society and the world at large were given something, something that has never really happened before. A game series that will transition into our cinema screens, but with one major difference. The entire cast from the game series is returning with the same creative team.

The lads....Ratchet didn't always pick the best allies....I mean c'mon Nefarious.
This is a game changer on so many levels, not just because a successful game to film transition could really pave the way for other game films, such as 'Mass Effect', 'Uncharted' and 'Assassins Creed'. With actors like James Arnold Taylor and Nolan North, the pedigree of V/O talent has never been higher and this will allow for a film/game experience that could change the landscape of the multi-media world forever. God speed 'Ratchet and Clank'. If you pull this off who knows where we could be headed next.
