    Also, Metacritic seems to be down. Did R&C just break it?

    @Gibroon I struggle to imagine EG going above a Recommended at best. It's not the kind of game they seem to like to encourage these days.

    But my god I hope Insomniac haven't fucked this one up. Everything's a bit shit at the moment and I could do with this not sucking. All of the preview material I've seen has looked good, so fingers crossed.

    @Rogueywon

    Why would you think they would fuck it up, if anything they've definitely proved one of the best developers going right now. I don't think this is the Balan Wonderland dumpster fire you are looking for.

    What did the 60fps RT mode in Spiderman actually cut to get it running? Was it just a lower resolution?

    @JamboWayOh I don't seriously think they'll fuck it up. I'm just a bit downbeat at the moment. Insomniac are indeed very reliable.

    They decreased crowd density a bit and some other minor bits and bobs and I think it adjusts the resolution a bit on the fly. I'm playing through SM: Remastered at the moment and it feels like a perfect happy medium to me. The RT effects really kick everything up a notch though, especially at night.

    A reduction in detail such as draw distance, crowd density and a cut in the amount of things reflected I believe.

    Might just go full bells and whistles with this to be honest. The motion blur they use always make they're games feel smooth at 30fps anyway and the gameplay is fairly simplistic so 60fps probably won't make a ton of difference.

    Having played through R&C PS4 to platinum recently just before they dropped that patch, I think this is probably one of those that won't feel terrible at 30fps anyway. It's a very floaty game by default so it doesn't feel like it loses as much as others.

    Will that stop me impulsively flicking between all 3 modes on Friday though and spending the entire game with a heavy sense of FOMO? Will it buggery.

    I'll probably play through with RT60 but go back to fidelity mode occasionally just to see the extra shinies in certain areas.

    Performance RT works so impressively in Spiderman I think it will probably be my go-to in this tbh.

    will flick between standard 4k and perf mode without rt (i truly don't give a toss about ray tracing) probably settling on 4k mode as usual. i like all the pixels.

    I'll be sticking with the 60fps modes. The R&C games are third person shooters at heart and 30fps didn't feel great in the PS4 game.

    I found it really hard to tell the difference between fidelity and RT60. The resolution is noticeable when looking closely but not in motion. The lighting wasn't quite as dynamic as well.

    I think their in-house upscaling solution is one of the, if not the best, in the industry right now I think the game will look shit hot regardless of what profile you play it on.

    I can't imagine what Spiderman 2 is going to be like at the rate they are going.

    3:01:35 is a weird time for an embargo to be lifted.

    It's a marketing thing. If you convert that time to octal and map to ASCII, it says "HALF-LIFE 3 IS COMING"

    So what are we thinking lads and lassies? I reckon it will be high 80s on Metacritic, recommended on EG.

    @Daeltaja Sounds about right. Unless EG gives the review to Edwin, in which case it'll get a no-mark because Clank's voice sounds a bit colonialist.

    The PS3 games reviewed really, really well back in the day, though, so it's possible scores could be higher.

    I was a bit shocked the other day to find out that there have been 16 (I think) R&C games. I must have played ... 3 I guess? The very first two or so, and the remake on the PS4.

    (And Jak and Daxter was better, anyway. HA.)

    I would love if they re-introduced the mini moons in space part, can't remember which R&C it was but it was a lovely little touch.

    edit: Also loved the roller ball six-axis minigames for hacking doors.

    @Gibroon That was Crack in Time and yes - I'd like to see those back.
