New RG Staff + Other Great News!

The Ratchet Galaxy English team is constantly growing! This week, we have two new members, yours truly, Melazzee and Tara Cross under the NEW status of RG Managers! This new status includes leading the entire English section of the site, managing and sorting through fanart/fiction, updating with news and stalking the forums for any nasties! But of course there's room for fun too! :P

a New Staff!

We have both prepared introductions to help everyone to get to know us, so here goes:

Tara Cross

"Hi everyone, my name's Tara Cross. I joined this community earlier on in the year and now I am a proud part of the Ratchet Galaxy staff team. I've been a fan of the Ratchet and Clank series since 2004, but only recently got more involved with the community and fandom, earlier in the year. I am also, an Animator and Artist, and dedicate most of my time to those two hobbies, and my part time job of course.

I am looking forward to working with the team over time, and don't be afraid to ask me anything :D I'm always here to help and answer!




"Hey'all, my name is Yasmin (Melazzee). I was shown this site by a friend a few months ago during an animation class (yup, I'm an animator and digital artist) and we'd sit and play Ratchet and Clank music full blast for the whole 2 hours of the lesson :P After a few weeks, I decided to sign up and join the community, and I can say, I've enjoyed being here so much! I'm so happy to be helping out with this site, and if you need any assistance with anything, don't be afraid to PM me (I don't bite XD)! :D

We will both be stalking the forums, so if you catch us, don't worry about stopping to have a chat!

Onto other news

DC comics and Insomniac Games have announced a Ratchet and Clank comic that will be released as a series of 6 in the US this September. Written by T.J Fixman, the official writer of the RaC games, it has been confirmed by Insomniac that this is a continuation of the series.

Taking place after the events in a Crack in Time, we see our heroes return to the Solana Galaxy for some rest, but as usual, they are called to duty. Entire planets have been disappearing from the solar system and at the beckon of Galactic President Quark, Ratchet and Clank are sent to investigate. The duo are put to the test as they encounter perhaps their most dangerous and capable enemy... a Markazian planet thief who goes by the name of Artemis Zogg!

Now I'm wondering; "How does one steal a planet?"
Unfortunately, this has only so far been announced a release date in the US so there is a possibility that non-US fans may have to import. But to see the beautiful "concept art style" of Ratchet and Clank put into comic form, this is a must-have for any die hard RaC fan!

It's worth it, right?

But wait... there's even more news?

There sure is!

I'm sure some of you may have heard the new game being released for Playstation Move called Heroes on the Move. This is the game that FINALLY brings together our heroes of the Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter and the Sly Cooper franchises together. Not much is know about the game yet, but from the looks of the trailer, it could involve lots of Smash'em-Up style fighting x)

Insomniac announces a multiplatform game

Hello there buddies!

After 16 years of good and honest services to Sony, Insomniac surprised everyone with the announce of a partnership with Electronic Arts! 16 years which had great games on the PlayStation consoles : Disruptor, Spyro, Ratchet & Clank and Resistance.

What are the terms of this partnership?

It's via Twitter that Insomniac announced this partnership with EA. It concerns a brand new license, which will be released both on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

The Ratchet and Resistance series are and will still be edited by Sony, and will stay the PlayStation 3 exclusives. In fact, the independent status of Insomniac can let them manage multiple projects with different editors, and they're not specifically attributed to a particular editor.

No worries then for the folks who bought a PlayStation 3 only to enjoy these series ; and good news for the happy possessors of the 360 who will enjoy the talent of our favorite studio!

Citation : Insomniac Games
Insomniac Games is excited to announce that we are working on a brand new franchise as well as a new universe that will be given to you in a near future, not only for the PlayStation 3 but also the Xbox 360. Our goal is always to deliver a unique experience and that's why we decided to work with a new publishing partner : EA Partners. We're very excited about the new game and the new relationship [...] But what about Sony? As an independent developer, we have choices : we can work with different publishers, different games. However, we want to reassure that everyone that are dedication to Ratchet & Clank, to Resistance and of course to Sony, remains as strong as ever. We will continue to work with Sony on games.

Look at Ted Price's video explanation, talking about what they're about to do with their new game... more or less :p)

The future of Insomniac Games

We certainly won't have any information about that game for a while. The agreement has just been signed, and no really concrete information of the game is releasable for the next few months. Insomniac seems though very happy to touch a much larger public by going to multiplatform!

For the next E3, we might expect the announce of a Resistance 3, the new license of the North Carolina studio, and eventually of a Ratchet & Clank.

What about the Full Moon Show?

As we announced in our previous news, the video episode of the Full Moon Show about I:5, aka Girl with a stick, has been released last Thursday! You'll see some gameplay sneak peeks, artworks, and all the things they did when they were preproducing the game :^^:
> See the Episode 49 of the Full Moon Show
As it turns out, this is actually a part of the full audio discussion about the game, and that will be released in the next episode, so stay tuned :)

The Full Moon Show is back !

Hello everyone :)

As you may already know, Insomniac Games proposes its own podcast, the Full Moon Show. After several months, we are glad to announce it is back on time, one month only before E3.
For this year's season, Insomniac will also offer us an insight of the employees' activities, outside of their work place. This, is Beyond the Game, a new video series that will be broadcasted along side to the Full Moon Show.

You can see the first (rather short) episode right here :^^:

As for the Full Moon Show itself, the first audio episode should be put online this week; probably Thursday, as it has always been the case the past years. The first episode of that new season will give us a lot of informations about Insomniac's cancelled project known as "Girl With a Stick".

Meanwhile, do not hesitate to tell us what you think about this new video series :ok:

What's new on RG ?

If you haven't already downloaded and installed it, you'll certainly need the ffdshow codec pack to play those videos (this pack also includes the DivX codec).

A new private messages service for the site !

Hello guys :)

We are pleased to announce a new private messaging service for Ratchet Galaxy. The main improvement : being able to create discussions which can welcome 2 to 5 members each. Here are some of its features :

> Instead of creating multiple private messages for one member in particular, for example, you are now able to create a discussion in which you will invite him/her. That means you can post as many messages in it as you want.
> The person who creates the discussion becomes its administrator, and is the only one who can invite other members. However, you cannot eject anyone.
> If the administrator leaves the discussion, the latter will still be active and the other participants can continue to talk.
> A discussion can never end unless each one of its participants quit. In this case, the discussion will be automatically deleted.
> As before, the messages whose lifespan is older than 2 months, are automatically deleted.
> The guest(s) of a discussion has/have access to all of the messages posted in it, even those posted before they integrated it.
> The "Archives" option let you read the messages you received on the older PM service, but this, during only one month, starting from today. If you have any important messages you wish to save, copy them on Wordpad, for instance. Beyond this period, the "Archives" option will disappear, to let the new service the whole way.
> The Javascript function of your web browser must be activated.

We hope you enjoy the new service :) We do think it is far more convenient than the older one, and will save some space on your PM board :^^:
As always, we want to know what you think and are waiting for your appreciations, whether positive or negative.

The team is growing !

> FinalFantasyFan joins the team as a moderator on the english version of the site.
> ratchetandyann joins the team as a fanfics validator on the french version of the site.

Please welcome both of them :)


> The R&C Future action figures are back with a new series. First picture !
> Insomniac Games is one of the first video games studios to use a new motion capture technology, said to be revolutionnary since it uses... bluetooth !
> The website Screwattack integrates the R.Y.N.O in its video series "The Armory", as one of the most powerful weapons in video games history.
> The Full Moon Show will be back soon ! If you have any questions about the "Girl with a Stick" project, make sure to ask them on the Insomniac forums, or on their twitter page.

Hey there dudes!

Today's news right below are quite nice. Enjoy :)

Ratchet and Qwark on stage!

A few weeks ago, an annual convention, wich consists in giving prices to the interactives works, a bit like the Video Game Oscars, took place : the 13th Annual Interactive Achievments Awards.
Unfortunately, no price was given to our furry and metallic companions, but Insomniac Games can still be proud, because R&CF : A Crack In Time was named in 4 categories : Best Animation, Best Graphics, Best Original Story and Best Adventure Game.
The Californian studio had also realised a short video with Ratchet and Qwark to begin this event... well, mostly Qwark :o))
Some of you might have already seen it, but it's still fun to see it several times :D

>> Ratchet and Qwark on stage for the 13th AIAA

A new recruit in the Team!

We have the pleasure to announce you that TriggerAzura is now a part of the English staff, which is still growing as we find motivated people.
We should have now 2 redactors and 2 moderators jobs left. We're trying to find those people as fast as possible and try to keep the English Version alive, even though the number visits is growing up!

Anyway, good luck to our new redactor, that we'll treat well! :diable:

The fan-made creations of the day
