And i'm sure it'll be gone within two minutes because of all the shenanigans. We're just gonna talk about hair for the next fifty minutes. Actually what we're talk about both hours and the for many aliens you mean ration griffin and that's my segue a click meet exactly. That's how we do it around these parts avenue. Of course we're all going to be playing a we're going to be talking about rationing clank. Which we've all played we all as far as i'm aware have rolled credits on it and we'll be diving into the game. Play the story The visuals the audio the accessibility. All of what. We've gotten to play of course while keeping spoiler free for the later bits of the game so you can all injury at don't want hear anything. Turn this off and listen after you've played but we hope you'll stick around and listen. I did of course to start off by mentioning. I reviewed rushing friday and you can check out my full review on idea in written form as well as video on there and youtube which was edited by mark medina. Who's right here with us. Go check out that video. It is a phenomenally edited edited video review marketed. An awesome job. So thank you for putting together but yeah definitely recommend you check that out but just to give a quick overview in case wondering i ended up giving it a nine. I really loved it. I've been a fan of russian clank since the original games. Play the original trilogy back on. Ps tune of kind of been with it. Since then i thought this one is probably the best playing of the whole franchise. I think it's one of the best playing sorta action platformer that played in some time. I think the the arsenal of weapons is a really really great. Load out for the series. There's definitely some of my favorites. That aren't there but there's a lot of like new favorites for me as well but i think the big things as aps five dedicated five exclusive. It is ridiculously pretty game. Like this is definitely the prettiest. Ps five game. Probably one of the prettiest games. I've ever played in general and the but it's backed by a pretty meaningful story. I think the game does a really great job of getting to some surprisingly emotional places. It's still really really funny. Like if you're someone who loves the humor ratchet and clank. I think it's still there. And i think it's still very funny. Approachable for all ages. Funny but i think the the story that they set up especially with ratchet and clank sort of throw line from from where this picks up after into the nexus. But even if you don't know about that. I think it's still introduces everything. Really well and the introduction of rivet and some other characters i think is just so all done i think jennifer hale as rivet is phenomenal. And i can't imagine this franchise without her like. I think it would be very strange to start adding too many names to these. Titles and calling it ratchet and clank in written three other people's names but like to me rivet as is as integral now to this franchise has ratchet and clank. And i hope she's around for some time because i really really enjoyed the character. Work there but Yeah that's sort of a brief ish. Ub check out my full review on jan. but i want to hear from all of you Especially because i wrote thousands of words about it so that people can read all that. I want to hear from all of you about sort of the game in general your brief thoughts and so before we get into specifics of things simonov. I'll start with you. What sort of your general thoughts on ripped apart. I would have given a three. Yeah no it's it's very
