    Here's an interesting coincidence Ratchet and Clank the game often speculated as an influence for WildStar's art style has a new game coming to the franchise entitled "Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus".

    Now surely the devs at Insomniac Games know about WildStar the graphical comparison and that the game is set on a planet called Nexus maybe this is a subtle shout out of approval. :sneaky:

    Well, as I saw how WoW was referring to alot of people/games, I can see WS referring to Rachet and Clank by putting them somewhere in Nexus with a quest ;)

    Would be awesome to see :up:

    This can only confirm that Dr. Nefarious is related in all this.

    Not speculated, confirmed :p.

    Quite a few Carbine staff have confirmed that they took inspiration from the J+D, R+C universes. As a fan of both of those IP's, this is a good thing. :D

    Also, roll on a new 'proper' R+C game!!!

    Agreed that would be cool and could potentially attract a whole different audience to WildStar but, I wonder how much of a legal hassle it would be to make such a thing happen hmmm?

    The publisher for R&C is SCEA so probably not likely.

    Ahh.. didn't realize thanks for the confirmation. :up:

    I don't know much about that, but I don't see how they can have dubs on names.

    So why not put a Chua with a gun named ''Rachet'', and next to him a Mechari with the name ''Clank'' giving you a quest :D

    You still use the WS art ;)

    I'm with you, but I think it would definitely be a good idea to consult a lawyer about all this. :laugh:

    Wouldn't Ratchet be an Aurin...?

    Clank would have to be a tiny robot npc, mechari are too large.

    I believe parody is protected by law (at least here in 'murica)

    That's why using a chua and a Mechari would give you no trouble, since you just name 2 ''normal races'' of your game with a name that's being used in another game aswell.

    But some people will understand the similarity, although it's still safe to use, unless they screw up the text in the quest and mention something else in there.

    The name ''Ratchet'' even is in the dictionary
    same with ''Clank''

    So it's hard to be sued for using words in the dictionary with WS models :D

    I never got to play the Ratchet and Clank games :/

    Some stuff in this game reminds me of the game Metal Arms:A Glitch in the System (which I'm guessing was inspired by games like Ratchet & Clank)

    I have never played a ratchet and clank game, simply because I have never owned a console, though this looks great, hopefully i can emulate it.

    nah! m pretty sure ratchet is much closer to an Aurin... the ears, tail, background demographic, ans height all closely match a Lombax's

    You seriously have no idea what you're talking about, if you're comparing them to the Aurin.

    That's just the same color scheme, Chua not only have the same body type as ratchet but the same mannerisms and both come from a society of technology. And I'm sure Chua can have that color scheme too. Aurin are to humanoid for Lombax.
