This past Thursday I spent about 3 hours messing around with Steep—a game that I have no intention of finishing but just wanted to try out. In order to download Steep I needed to delete a few games off my PlayStation 4’s hard drive and as I was going through my library and picking old games to axe I came across Ratchet and Clank. For over a year now I’ve been meaning to play Ratchet and Clank one more time before deleting it and I’ve decided now is as good a time as any to finally get that done. Part of the reason that I’m replaying this game is because I suspect there’s going to be a bit of a shakeup of my personal Top 10 PS4/Xbox One Games when I revisit the list within the next few months. Ratchet and Clank currently is sitting pretty in the number two spot but with some strong competition coming certain games I’ve played over the preceding months I have a nagging suspicion that it will drop a few slots when I get around to updating the list. It’s been long enough since I last played Ratchet and Clank that I’m starting to forget the finer details of the game and replaying it now will help refresh my memory and thus allow me to make a fairer judgment on how well it has stood the test of time.
Next Thursday I’m planning on publishing some very brief impressions of Steep but after that it will likely be several weeks before another edition of Late to the Party rolls out. At the moment I’ve got a few ideas on what I’ll play after finishing Ratchet and Clank, among them being Transistor, LittleBigPlanet 3, and What Remains of Edith Finch.
