There are a few movies that are firmly embedded in my childhood memories as iconic pieces of film history. Others might disagree but they are wrong. The Goonies is one such film that I would gladly watch again right now, and it seems that I am not the only one. At E3 I spoke to Brian Allgier from Insomniac about their soon to be released snack sized release of Ratchet and Clank: Quest for Booty. Past the break is the section of the interview that I am referring to, you can hear the whole thing in the fourth ButtonMasher podcast.
Any Big-Ass guns that we can look forward to seeing?
In this one we are actually focusing more on the wrench. The wrench upgrades, Ratchet has this cool power where the end of [the wrench] shots off and connects to things and he can control them from a distance. He can also use the wrench to pick up creatures like Helio Grubs. He also gets to solve Pirate Puzzles.
Are Pirates well known for their puzzle making abilities?
Have you ever seen Goonies?
Of course, so there’s that part where they need to play the right tune. Well we’ve got some of that stuff which is inspired by that movie. You’ll have to catch the little references in there.
