The friendship shared between a space rodent and a tiny robot has kept us enchanted with Insomniac Games' long-running Ratchet & Clank series since it debuted on PlayStation on November 4, 2002. In today's episode of Replay, we take a look at the series' inaugural release, but spend most of our time talking about the entire series, detailing our favorite entries, and giving advice as to what Ratchet & Clank game newcomers should make their first.

 Our second segment is usually dedicated to games of lesser quality or oddities you may not have heard of, but today we decided to look at another game that could be a frontrunner for a Replay episode of its own. From the intrigue Game Informer's Tim Turi shows in it, this title is an early candidate for our annual December 31 Super Replay.
