    Sorry Chris, but Jon’s right about Ratchet & Clank. The reboot is a good game (minus the strange story changes they made) but the big thing that did not work for me as well is that the reboot felt like 2 characters who already knew each other and had developed a rapport. The original trilogy built the relationship and developed the characters. The Ratchet & Clank you like from the reboot is who the characters were by the end of the first game.

    Also, since you mentioned it, what would be the limitations on “antagonistic pairs” in video games? I can think of several cases of characters working both with and against you as the player.

      birdy coming through clutch!

      But yeah, that’s the main thing. The reboot is missing the growth which I guess works for the point of the game (movie tie-in for kids) but still.

      When I was thinking of antagonistic on the show it was kind of like rivalries in a sense Shadow v Sonic, Knuckles v Sonic, or The Entire Internet after 2002 v Sonic really. What were you thinking?

      • birdy the critic

        What you’re describing sounds more like enemies than antagonists. I was thinking more couples that could maybe be seeking the same goal but working against each other at the same time or using each other to get what they want, like Sly and Neyla in the 2nd Sly Cooper game. There are other examples, but what you’re describing sounds more like classic pairs of rivals or maybe enemies (I know of Sonic and Knuckles but I have very little experience with the games).

        What do you think?

        • Jon Romo

          Good point! Yeah those are two different things, but there have been instances where Shadow/Sonic are on the same team (more in the comics); same for Sonic/Knuckles. That was an example that could be on either side of the conversation depending on the game instance.

          I think of it similar to Punisher and Daredevil. They play the line of antagonist allies and outright enemies depending on the arc.

          Those could be two different episodes on each of those definitions!

    My favorite recent duo has got to be Nate and Same Drake. Got to be the best executed “long lost brother” trope I have seen in a while.

      Oh definitely! I think if you go back and listen to our review, that relationship is my favorite aspect of the game especially considering I’m an older brother. It’s just that if I look at the serious as whole, I think Drake’s relationship with Elena is really what the series is about.

      After all he’s done, Drake’s greatest legacy and the continuation of his name lies with Elena. But I’m also just a lovey sap, so what do I know ha.
