Weekend Confirmed 123 - Outernauts, Ratchet and Clank, Dynamite Jack

By Jeff Mattas, Jul 27, 2012 11:00am PDT

While Garnett is away in Seattle on business, the two Jeffs (Cannata and Mattas) are joined by Insomniac's James Stevenson and Shacknews Daily contributor and video guru Ryan Calavano to talk about this week's gaming news, as well as some stuff they've been playing during the summer wait for mainstream releases. Insomniac's recently-launched Facebook game Outernauts gets some love, and the new Ratchet and Clank HD collection and upcoming downloadable installment, Full Frontal Assault get some hype. Mobile iOS goodness, including Dynamite Jack and Great Big War Game, get some of the spotlight as well, before the crew brings it home with another batch of Finishing Moves.

  • Is World of Wacraft really that innovative? Is Blizzard for that matter?

    Blizzard to me has always been the 3M of video games. All the pieces of what eventually made WoW existed in Everquest, DAoC, Anarchy and FFXI. Even those games are built on the bases of Lineage and Ultima Online. Blizzard came in and did what they always do, you give them a handful of game pieces & ideas and a preexisting setting(even Warcraft & Starcraft are almost blatant WH40K), and they will polish, polish, polish it down to a science operating on their crack formula and it overtakes everything else.

    Which I think is part of the reason whatever their next MMO is hasn't arrived because they personally created such a vacuum of new ideas in the space (barring a couple exceptions) that there is nothing interesting out there right now to pillage refine from. Or they are beta testing their future games with the expansions of their current game.
