I regret not playing this series sooner. I don't know what it was, whether I was just content with going with the Jak & Daxter games or budget constraints made it impossible to go with both, I dunno. But now a decade or so later I was able to procure the Ratchet & Clank Collection for PS3 as well as Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty and A Crack In Time. I think I found a new favorite game in this series, can't quite find the words to properly describe why I am so glad I finally played these games, the closest I can manage is "If DOOM was Disneyfied in the best way possible" and "Feeling strangely Nintendo as fuck but still its own unique thing." 
_____________________ 

RATCHET & CLANK
Well actually I didn't play this one, haven saw the playthrough done by Super Gaming Bros. I decided to skip it since those videos were still fresh in my mind and were pretty much why I finally went and got these games. I'm still on the fence on whether I need to go back and play it for myself but what I saw looked fun despite looking archaic compared to what came after...I'll just put it on my to do list for now....

GOING COMMANDO
Oh hi Tidus from FFX, fancy meeting you here. Yeah this is where James Arnold Taylor took over as Ratchet onwards and man is it a perfect fit. But yeah the game.....I instantly got annoyed by the help desk messages so I turned them off, so I pretty much missed the part where you could strafe and assumed that strafing was none existent. Whoops. But I have to imagine even if I knew I could strafe I doubt it would have made much difference, I can't tell if I was just that bad a player or if there was indeed moments of artificial difficulty but this game was not quite perfect, and oh sweet Primus the amount of bitch work I had to do in this blasted game to progress. The Clank segments had some superfluous features I'm glad were left out of the next game and those space ship segments were just painful. It was still a good game don't get me wrong but it was not quite perfect, it felt like they needed to give it a few more minutes to percolate to a perfect brew.

UP YOUR ARSENAL
This felt like what Going Commando was trying to be. I have to imagine that this was the game they wanted to make in the first place as it feels like the culmination of everything they've done in the two previous games. But that could just be me, also helps that the introduction of Dr. Nefarious was pretty everything I hoped for in a new villain. He just felt ripped straight from a Cartoon Network show one minute coming off as this complete looney mook who you can't help but pity at times but then the next he was the last person you wanted to fuck with, especially in that balls hard final boss where he had shadow clones, two nasty pistols and those pain in the ass shockwave grenades. And that's another thing, the difficult was rather annoying at times yet it didn't feel artificial in the slightest, like I actually felt like it was my own damn fault for getting fried. I am not technically allowed to call it the best of the PS2 games at this time do to circumstance, but I can definitely say it was better than the last one.
FAVORITE WEAPONS
:bulletblue:Plasma Whip
:bulletblue:Agents of Doom
:bulletblue:Annihilator 

TOOLS OF DESTRUCTION
I'm just gonna get my one main complaint out of the way, both Percival Tachyon and Romulus Slag were LAME. I'm talking Senator Armstrong from Revengeance lame, like they were trying to be as memorable and interesting as Nefarious was but failing miserably in their own ways. Worse was that the game couldn't decide which of the two was the main villain, half of the game was fighting Tachyon's army while the other half was dealing with pirates, even with Tachyon ending up as the final boss (which was a lame boss) it just rang hollow in the end. And besides that Talwyn was a pretty lame supporting character here, only giving a shit about Ratchet because he was a Lombrax and constantly giving him shit for not even knowing how to read the Lobrax language, just a next to useless douche overall. So yeah overall it was the story that was sour here, the actual game was pretty sweet otherwise with the only real low points being the lackluster Clank segments and the majority of the arsenal caring more about being "new and interesting" instead of being significantly useful. Although I found the whole Raritanium system a very neat feature as it made the results from upgrading feel more significant. It was a decent trek overall, just wish the story was better.
FAVORITE WEAPONS
:bulletblue:Predator Launcher
:bulletblue:Shock Ravager
:bulletblue:Negotiator

QUEST FOR BOOTY
What pisses me off about it is that this was a glorified DLC story pack they decided to sell as its own separate "game" despite being just an extra chapter to Tools of Destruction, meaning yet more of those pirates I was already sick of fighting meaning a short couple hour romp where Romulus Slag refuses to just go the fuck away despite wearing out his welcome. It tried to do some interesting things with the absence of Clank and the new Wrench Tether gimmick but overall it's a must skip, the actual low point of the series for me.

A CRACK IN TIME
My absolute favorite in the series, given the fact I just played it all the way through twice in a row, the game was damn near perfection. The story not only saw the return of Mother Fucking Nefarious but holy hell was Alister Azimuth just an awesome supporting character, bringing the series to a dark dramatic place in a way that felt natural and didn't hinder the tone of the franchise. I was missing the absence of the Raritanium system from the last game but between the introduction of the Constructo Weapons and finally, FINALLY setting gadgets to their own separate selecting system (not to mention having only three gadgets to worry about) the arsenal here was pure win. In fact this game pretty much did away with a lot of the more lackluster bits that plagued even Up Your Arsenal, for once the space ship segments weren't tact on afterthoughts as now it was a hub world system, on top of that it made the Clank segments interesting. Up Your Arsenal was excellent but this was the master stroke.

Welcome to my Carnival of Rust

I am your host, Ringmaster Terry "Tyrranux" Jones, a most disturbed individual when you scratch deep past the surface, on the outside though I'm just a run of the mill loser like everyone else. Here on Deviantart is where I have set up shop, my carnival of dead dreams and hopeful wishes gallore...

Go ahead, take a look around. We have all manner of attractions here. We got the ever popular three ring Tyrranux Universe circus, a collection of mutants and freaks giving you a crossover clusterfuck extraveganza that is not for the faint of heart, parental supervision is vastly required for this show. If you wish you can visit the museum where all of my written tombs come to life if you wish them to. We got several Transformers petting zoos and even a Mega Man themed fashion show featuring your favorite stars. There is also Kingdom Hearts gallore, so many other things and maybe a Little Pony or two just for the kids. There is nothing too childish, girly, dark, sinister or whatnot for my show, well maybe somethings I won't have in my show but overall I got a lot of stuff for a wide audience.

So come on into my big top, all are welcome and admission is free. Just be careful of the rust, it leaves such a nasty stain...

Have you ever heard of RPG Maker horror? If not, look up titles like Mad Father, Paranoiac, The Crooked Man, the Corpse Party series, Ib, The Witch's House, and the like.

Hi there. I have been looking at your comic and other things for quite a while now and I love your work. :D I know there is a deeper story to your works and know that you have written some stories for them, do you think you can point me in the right direction to start from the beginning?

Keep up the awesome work!

A deeper story for my crappy comics? I don't even think there's even a solid canon to begin with XD

But I do have a deeper narrative for the majority of my Pre-MLP works. It starts here - The Beast Chapter 1 and if you wish to keep going continues here - The Eater of God Chapter 1. You can start from the very beginning if you wish but because I keep the two halves separate for convenience of access you can skip right to the crossover chaos if you so wish.

I would also show you to my Kingdom Hearts fan fic but honestly I wouldn't let my worst enemy read that train wreck XD

Thank you very much, I can't wait to give them a read. :D And yes, I shall read them from the beginning, that is just the way that I am. And your crappy comics are awesome!!Headbang! 

You keep doing what you do and keep being awesome, my friend! And you could use that story as a weapon if you like. XD
Oh, before I forget, you have a tumblr too, does that follow your stories at the same time or is just for asking random things?

Well for starters I never read/watched any of those so no. And besides that I stopped tossing any characters I want willy nilly when I started writing this story, I already wrote one crappy Kingdom Hearts fan fic where I added hundreds of characters with no forethought or real purpose I am not writing another, so no I'm not making anymore "Tyrranux Universe Profiles" I don't even need. Hell more than half of the ones what I've already done have become cut content anyway.

And considering how many of my total viewer base is even reading this story at all I'm getting kind of tired of being asked to add more "TU Profiles" because reasons....I'm starting to wonder why I'm still even doing this for...
