WORD OF THE DAY! 2/4/14!

clank [clangk]
1. A sharp, hard, nonresonant sound, usually produced by striking together two pieces of metal.
2. To make such a sound, move with such sounds, or cause such a sound.

EX. Clanking into a theater near you are The Ratchet and Clank & Sly Cooper CG-animated films, in 2015 and 2016 respectively, and I gotta wonder...why?

Sure, the franchises are successful and have fan bases, but are they truly big enough to carry a full-length feature film? Do they have the cross-audience appeal to bring in new fans with a film or will the humor, stretched too thin, fall flat across a 90+ min. run time? The history of video game films spell disaster for these two films, but maybe the fact that they're being CG-animated spells a certain level of investment that these film's fore-bearers lacked.

At the least, the internet will have something to whinge about and Deviantart will have plenty of fodder for Rule 34 art.

Clank, clank.

P.S. Still better than the concept art below.

P.P.S. Hoenn confirmed.
