Jak and Ratchet

I have all but given up on Jak II. I actually took it down to Gamestop to consider selling it along with some other games I have finished or haven’t played in forever and they would only give me something like $3 for it, so, I just kept it, I may pick it up again, but… It just saddens me that Jak and Daxter was such a spot on, perfect game and Jak II is so completely different. They had the perfect formula and just weren’t happy. It is odd to me that it gets such great reviews and I just disagree. Maybe if I get further into the game it will be better? Not sure.

So, I popped in Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando, which I picked up a couple of weeks ago… not realizing it was the second game in the series. I played it for about an hour or two and just loved it. It is a true platformer like Jak and Daxter was, unlike Jak II. After I realized it was the second game in the series I went down to Gamestop and got the first Ratchet and Clank for $10.

While I was there I traded in my PS2 for a used slim PS2. Wow, the new design is just stunningly small. I knew they were smaller but slim doesn’t even describe it. Trading in a few games and the old PS2 I got the slim one and Ratchet and Clank for no money (and a small credit), which was kind of cool.

So, I am now playing the first Ratchet and Clank and loving it. I hope R&C don’t wig out on me and go GTA in the 3rd or 4th game (4th game due out in a couple months, I think). Don’t get me wrong, GTA is a fun game, but, they should let GTA be GTA.

Oh, and I saw The Skeleton Key last night. I really enjoyed it. It’s a voodoo/mystery/suspense thing. Not gory, kinda creepy, worth seeing if your into that kind of thing. Next movie is probably Dark Water.

Until next time…
