For those of you who read my last post and were lucky enough to attend our Full Moon Festival this past Friday, I hope it's now safe to say that the Smurfs are no longer the only good thing to come out of October 23 milestones.
About 150 Ratchet & Clank and Insomniac fans joined us from as far away as Michigan (thanks Adam!), Texas (thanks Mitch!) and all over California - some waiting in line starting at 5am – to celebrate today's North American launch of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
Even Clank himself managed to make an appearance, albeit in the form of talented voice actor David Kaye (who also voices Nathan Hale in the Resistance games).
General Alister Azimuth, aka Joey D'Auria, paid a visit along with G4TV's very own Adam Sessler as part of a "making of A Crack in Time" panel moderated by yours truly. Insomniac founder and CEO Ted Price, gameplay lead Andrew Yount and lead designer Mike Ellis shared their production memories as part of the standing-room only discussion.

To quote: At PAX, we scored some time with James Stevenson, Community Manager at Insomniac Games who was kind enough to walk us through some brand new Axiom City gameplay in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.
Specifically, James gives us the lowdown on a heap of weapons – including the all-powerful (and deceivingly small) Rift Inducer – and what they can do.
