>>79760256 It's 2006 Astro Boy all over again. The characterizations are going to be wrong (they were already being flanderized to hell by the first PS3 game) and the celebrities are most likely not going to fit the characters. Notice how all the designs have been softened, everyone has those fucking goofy wide-eyed colorful pupil expressions, and they gave Drax pupils, for fuck's sake. It's like they're taking little details that made things unique and saying, "no, can't have that, we gotta do this the big hollywood cg movie way because the lowest common denominator might not like it."
Like with Astro Boy, Nick Cage as Dr. Tenma? Fucking really? I'm probably going to see R&C anyway but it's going to be a disappointment to anyone who played the PS2 games.
>>79763764 The R&C movie actually looks like the games which is nice With the Sly movie they completely scrapped the games' amazing visual style for something totally shitty and generic, it will be guaranteed awful
Eh, I just want Rainmaker to crumble before they get the "sequel" to ReBoot out. Buy up the rights and whatever's laying around in any old computers/"the archives" and give it to the co-creators. Oh and a ink a deal with Netflix.
J&D had a really good universe, even going by the first game alone. It really felt like there was a huge world out there. From Misty Island, to the Snowy Mountains, to underwater Lost Precursor City...
The sequels mostly took place in and around Haven City, but they did manage to take the steampunk setting of the first one and mash it with a cyberpunk feel pretty well.
For example, in the original game Eco were just energy streams that came from inside the planet that could power windmills and give you temporary powers.
In the following games Eco is used for just about everything. We see a mine where they dig up Eco to power the city and its shields. Eco is also manufactured into ammunition for weapons, and Green Eco being the healing type is turned into medpacks.
And then there's the whole "Dark Warrior Program", and whatnot, but realistically any city-state like Haven City would be stupid not to try to create Eco-infused super soldiers. Not just to protect them from Metal Heads and the monsters that lurk outside the walls, but from other nations too (and The Lost Frontier, as mediocre as it was, did confirm other nations were performing similar experiments).
And that's really only a small part of the world building that they did with the franchise. Which that said, I still don't think it'd work as a movie as much as I may like to see one, and return to that universe. Ratchet & Clank has always been more suited for that, and has more mainstream appeal. But they've never captured my imagination in the same way Jak and Daxter did.
They're doing a good job at destroying Ratchet's character in it so far, moreso than Into The Nexus managed to. I always wanted a RC movie but dear god not where they make everything that was good about the game horrible.
Drek's in the background, you can see his eyes. He's the one voiced by Paul Giamatti now instead of Kevin Michael Richardson.
As for the story, it's basically a condensed version of the original PS2 trilogy. Or to be more apt, it's the first game with elements of the second and third included. Dr. Nefarious is going to appear in his organic form, likely leading to his robotization either halfway in or at the climax. And it seems Quark will probably have his redemption arc like in the third game without having his solo revenge scheme from the second.
>>79759478 Popular meme is that Sony's game consoles are movie machines. What makes this meme so persistent is that it comes from so many different angles
>PS3 had no games and was thought of as mainly a blu ray player during the beginning of its lifespan >many of the commercially successful exclusives on PS3 and PS4 are very "cinematic," featuring lengthy cutscenes and QTEs. This leads people to criticize them as "movie games" or "interactive movies" or even just movies >posters on neoGaf (forum full of Sony fanboys) will often criticize games for being to "video gamey"--which leads many to the conclusion that these people would rather interact with movies than play games >PS3 at one point came bundled with Talledegah Nights, leading many dank memesters to joke that the movie was its only worthwhile exclusive
>>79766581 One thing I liked about 3 is that it felt like you weren't alone in trying to save the galaxy. You had the Galactic president, the crew of that starship that's your base, the Q-Force and the Galactic Rangers all there too.
>>79767982 Strong franchaise usually means more popular among people. On top of that Jak kinda went silent after 3 so even though many want more from it the fact we even got like 2 games after that was a surprise.
>>79767988 As much as I love Kevin, is Drek really that good a villain? I enjoyed the original Ratchet, but I felt Dreak and the whole DESTROY PLANETS FOR PROFIT thing was kinda a dumb storyline. I could care less what they do with Drek, even getting a big fat liar to voice him.
>>79769875 Of course Drek's not a good villain. There's a reason why the only villain anyone cares about is Nefarious. Most of the villains in R&C are shit. But Kevin Michael Richardson is awesome and deserves as much as he can get. At the very least his voice is memorable.

Wrong. Going with 2D motion comic style designs is asking for an instant bomb. 2D anything will NOT sell. Get it through your worthless skull. /co/'s head is as hard as rock. No wonder you could never work in the entertainment media industry.
These movies have a job, to make money. Visually appealing designs to get mainstream audiences to buy up the merchandise are important. So yes, the wonky flash animated Sly Cooper comic style shit? That would turn off kiddies. You need to join the legion and not stand out because very few can carve out their own unique visual styles in animated media and succeed (Laika). The risk is much to great.
The thing that's weird though is Drake's Deception already was a finale more or less. Nate lost the Drake ring, more or less realized he was just killing people more so than finding bountiful treasure, and finally shacked up with Elena.
