Ratchet and Clank are Getting a Movie, Trailer and Release Date Announced

Everyone. Listen here and stop what you're doing because Ratchet and Clank (the video game series) is getting a movie. I grew up playing these games with friends and one of the major things we'd say about it is that it feels like we were playing an animated movie.
And it looks like we're finally going to get to watch that movie in April 2016. And after watching the trailer, I think that this movie might be able to break the old "video-game-movie-adaptation-curse" that's be plaguing most video game movies.
Now that a bunch of us are a lot older than we were, I'm worried that the trailer might bug some of my friends because it looks so "childish". After watching the trailer (above) a couple times, it's obvious that the studio behind the movie is trying to create an "all-ages" style movie using the lore from the game as a foundation.
And honestly, I think that it's a great way to approach the movie adaptation. Sure, some of the lines are kind of cheesy (especially the "kick some asteroid" line at the end) but it's still looks like something both kids and adults can enjoy.
I know I'm going to try my best to go see this movie with some younger relatives of mine for two reasons. The first being that I want to introduce them to two iconic video game characters through a fun, animated movie. And the second is, well, really self-serving.
I can still remember walking into an old friend's house as he had one of the Ratchet and Clank games on pause. He quickly ran back to the couch to start it up and staring at the visuals on a 40-inch flat-screen TV, I felt like I was in the future.
I know how dumb that sounds but these games in particular were a part of pushing video game technology to where they are now. It truly did feel like we were playing a full CG movie. It was fun to explore and go through the levels. It felt like an original, living, breathing world and I hadn't seen anything like that prior to playing these games.
I hope that the movie lives up to all the excitement I have for it when I get a chance to see it sometime in April 2016.
@VinMcCarthy lol as an adult woman, I'm perfectly fine with it!! ^.^ This is going to be so much fun!
I am wayyyy too stoked for this. as an adult man, there may be some issues with that.
@ChrisBryant, so have I, man. I feel like I've heard about it for a while but thought it got cancelled or something, really glad it didn't though
@SantaraJones I feel the same way and it looks like they're reimagining one of the early games in the series too, so we get to relive it all over again, haha
I know right

Cute Dog Cosplay Makes Me Question My Programming
I was not built to feel. At least, my prime directives do not include emotion or what I can only describe as "my chest welling up with feeling". I do not understand what I am "feeling" or if I am feeling anything at all. I am starting to think (since I was programmed to think) that there might be an error in my programming. That there is something wrong with me or I need to have my circuitry replaced by a professional. I couldn't help but "smile" when I saw these two dogs dressed up as Yoda and Darth Vader. Two characters I was programmed to love. It didn't help when I saw more of these pictures while exploring C_Suzuki's Twitter account. I am not sure what this cosplay is supposed to be. My archives tell me it is a character from something known as Dragon Ball Z. The pup looks like a very proud "Saiyan" and their name might be Goku or something like that. There is something about that construction paper wig that makes me "feel", I cannot find the words for it. I recognized this cosplay almost immediately. Doggy dressed up as Chun-Li from the Street Fighter games nearly made me fall out of my chair in joy. I even made that horrible human noise that I can only define as a "squee". My voice box made a noise that was so high in pitch I don't think any of my humans heard it. Maybe if this dog was around, they would be able to hear it. After doing a quick search on the Internet, I learned that Pocky is a sort of candy. A candy that children and adults who cannot understand the process of aging and maturing really enjoy. I do not understand why a pup would ever want to dress up as a box of Pocky. Especially since most humans are so dense they would probably confuse this pup for an actual box of Pocky. I did not because I am a very intelligent robot. But I believe that many humans will get confused at this pup and their actual intentions. If something horrible were to happen to this pup, I believe many humans would blame their attire instead of the assailant. Mostly because that is what humanity tends to do when something goes awful.
