Clank's Day at Insomniac
|9:00am||We arrived to work early in my vintage car. My smaller stature made it impossible for me to secure a license so I let Ratchet drive. He seems to enjoy it.|
|9:10am||At first I was afraid of Larry the Security Guard but he is a pleasant fellow once you get to know him.|
|9:15am||My olfactory sensors detected a strange smell in the elevator.|
|9:20am||Our front desk administrator, Demyrie, enjoys greeting the employees. Today, I received the latest information on Robot Harassment in the workplace.|
|10:00am||Angela has a great laugh. I love to regale her with my latest exploits. I try to leave out the parts that may be a bit off-color. Oh, and there is Phil. Hard worker, keeps to himself.|
|10:40am||Mr. Price found a multiplication error in my accounting report. This is the second one this year! Need to check my math circuits.|
|11:00am||No matter how many times I explain the effect of carcinogens on the human anatomy, Dan refuses to give up that filthy habit!|
|11:30am||The artists must be able to capture Ratchet's essence from every angle. This is his favorite part of the day, the big ham.|
|12noon||Lunchtime! We get free lunch every Friday. Today they were offering Grease pudding! Mmmmm my favorite...|
|12:30pm||Captain Qwark has got game. After splitting his spandex on this shot he also got a new suit.|
|1:00pm||I never use the facilities when Argus is in there.|
|1:30pm||Our testing department works tirelessly to find every bug in the game. I am unsure where they get their motivation.|
|2:00pm||Ratchet can sometimes be overzealous when letting off a little steam. That wall had it coming anyway.|
|3:00pm||The Mathematician is attempting to "multiply" himself again. I need to "subtract" this image from my memory banks.|
|3:45pm||Look, plumber's crack...Ho-ho-he-he... I slay me!|
|4:20pm||Walter cast a Magic Missile, but he was blocked by my 6th level wizard's shield spell. Step off Walter, step off!|
|6:00pm||Angela and Abe started their exercise program today. Abe says he gets his best ideas when running. Like that idea for a solar powered neck warmer.|
|9:00pm||Well that is it for today. The cleaning crew arrives to get our office ready for tomorrow. Good night.|
Sheep Blasters was a mini-game playable in which you pilot a small robot and must shoot "space sheep". You can unlock this by beating the game once or using the Dynamo on the pyramid on the table in Clank's apartment. The game was developed by Peter Hastings. 
Space-ish wars was a mini-game playable in which you pilot a "space sheep" and must shoot the opposing space sheep while you are both orbiting a sun. The game was developed by Peter Hastings. The mini-game is (due to it's similarity to it) likely a reference to Spacewar!, which is one of the first videogames ever created. 
Shows images of paintings drawn by Wes Louie with descriptions.
|1 (The Exterminator)||When I saw Dave Guertin's design for the Exterminator and Greg Baldwin's design for the Exterminator ship, I immediately envisioned this confrontation between Ratchet and the Exterminator. I wanted the colors of the scene to be almost like sunset, where two gunslingers do their thing and I wanted both to look really calm right before the battle on the docking platform. - Wes Louie|
|2 (Robot Chasing Ratchet)||When I saw this gigantic robot walking around one of the levels, I was just thinking how fun it would be to illustrate the giant robot and the rest of the enemies chasing Ratchet and everything blowing up all over the city. Chaos everywhere! - Wes Louie|
|3 (The Snowbeast)||This painting was going to be a lot more comedic, with Clank doing something in the snow when he saw the Snowbeast standing over Ratchet, ready to turn Clank into spare parts. But that detail would be way too subtle for the size of the painting and I just decided to leave it the way it is now....fight or flight, Clank! - Wes Louie|
|4 (On Ratchet's Trail)||This painting was done after 'The Exterminator' and I wanted to show the Exterminator's ship from a different angle, tracking Ratchet in space and moving in for the kill. - Wes Louie|
|5 (Megacorp Convoy)||I thought it would be interesting to see a convoy of Megacorp sentries protecting the mothership and to show scale between the mothership and a planet. - Wes Louie|
|6 (The Unkown)||More cool designs of the character and vehicle by our talented guys on the character team made me want to do another painting. Since this character is mysterious and you really don't know who or what it is until you've played the game for a while, I wanted to show the character in a solitary environment, walking towards its ship in a small docking bay. - Wes Louie|
Endorsement Deals shows different pictures of advertisements for what appears to be Megacorp-made products.
