Dan Johnson[edit]

Anyone know who Dan Johnson is? Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction says the game is dedicated to him at the end. There are a lot of matches on Wikipedia, but I don't think any our him.--Playstationdude 00:13, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Dan was an enviroment modeler (level modeler) at Insomniac. He had physical problems during his childhood and spent a year at some Shriner's Children's hospital. It was an interaction of prescription drugs that took his life. He was seemingly one of he coolest guys at IG.Srex at IGforums 16:49, 7 November 2007 (UTC)


Does anyone here think Spyro and Cynder might have a romance? --Gp75motorsports 21:15, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Actually, Spyro was handed over to Vivendi Universal after Spyro 3, meaning IG is developing them no more. The past games has been developed by different studios who did mostly everything wrong (especially in Enter the Dragonfly. I haven't tried the New Beginning series, but after checking them out, they seem rather dull. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Srex at IGforums (talkcontribs) 22:00, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

The romance was confirmed at the end of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon if i'm not mistaken. I had predicted something like it after seeing how Cynder cuddles up to Spyro at the ending scene of 'a new beginning' though. MIVP (I Can Help? ◕‿◕) - (Chocolate Cakes) 11:41, 16 May 2013 (UTC)


I think making this task force was a bad mistake. It doesn't seem to be doing any good for wikipedia and hasn't grown much.--Playstationdude 20:32, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

The Full Moon Show[edit]

I don't know if anyone has brought this up yet, but does the full moon show deserve it's own page, ther is definitely a lot of material available about which to write, I know i'm only a new member but please consider this. Sorry if this has been brought up already.--Seanor3 21:44, 12 December 2007

Sounds great as long if you have real references and all that other official junk.--Playstationdude (talk) 20:49, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

OK its more or less official the article is up to date and as official as posssible. I've also added an image to the page so it looks well. The article is here The Full Moon Show. Seanor3 (talk) 12:21, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Could someone help me to get some kind of assesment done on the full moon show article.Seanor3 (talk) 19:48, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Insomniac's Proprietary PS3 Engine[edit]

Possible research task. Somebody should mail Insomniac (or JStevenson in particular) asking if they have an internal name for their comprehensive PS3 engine technology. Putting "Proprietary Insomniac PS3 Engine" in the info boxes looks pretty clunky. It could even be a Full Moon Show question since the podcast is starting up again today. Evilkeen (talk) 14:54, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone think it deserves its own article, if it doesn't already have one.Seanor3 (talk) 16:38, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

There would have to be some good info and refs. I really don't here about it that often.--Playstationdude (talk) 19:48, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

You're definitely right, i've looked at some of the articles on better known game engines and there would need to be a lot of info covering every aspect of the engine as well as pros and cons, screenshots of the engine in use, as well as references (which I don't know how to do). I do think we should try it though. Seanor3 (talk) 17:44, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ratchet & Clank Wiki[edit]

Thought you might want to know about this. MrKIA11 (talk) 21:18, 23 August 2008 (UTC)


Insomniac games created Ratchet & clank, right. HIG(high impact games) has made 2 ratchet and clank games but ratchet & clank should then belong to insomniac games but hig are making games also. i know they are a break off of imsomniac so why are they allowed to make the games. please explain to me what this all means.


SaiyanEmperor2008 (talk) 14:42, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

High Impact Games probably gained permission to do it. I'll look into it. MIVP (I Can Help? ◕‿◕) - (Chocolate Cakes) 11:45, 16 May 2013 (UTC)


I have proposed that the PlayStation project be merged into the Video games project as a taskforce. Go to WT:WikiProject PlayStation to join the discussion. — Levi van Tine (tc) 09:24, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
