Aw, I just missed you guys. :( I wound up playing with some new guys though, so it helped heal my bruised ego from playing with the likes of Wolfy and Harry.

Some heart-breaking, gut-wrenching, nausea inducing, mind numbing, put my mouth to the curb-stomping news, too. Guess what days I'll be away from the PS3, my friends?... The 26th. Through. The 8th. I don't get how the scheduling could screw up my Uncharted time that bad. I'm still trying to work around this unfortunate turn of events, but the skies aren't looking too bright.

Now that's a thing of beauty. Kinda like Joss Whedon meets Uncharted. Just minus the actual Joss Whedon.


:lego_shock:

Hopefully they don't just kill one of 'em off like Whedon did Book, though. I think that might just be poor writing. Realistic? Yes, but we just didn't know enough as an audience to justify the waste of his interesting character.

But where Scorp says he likes these games to be upbeat adventure stories, and I agree to an extent, but truly, if they pull it off right, it could do the unthinkable: it could make this game even more great. I mean, I've been watching film noirs as soon as my eyes popped open. In one of my favorite movies since I was around 8, an undercover cops partner, and more importantly, his friend, gets killed in front of his eyes, and he can't say anything because he know it'll blow his cover, causing him to die and thus leaving these murderers out on the streets. My favorite TV show is called The Shield and - well, it's got an episode where I couldn't even hardly talk for days after I witnessed it, and that doesn't happen often, because you know, violent video games and all that. But when it does happen, and it happens naturally, it's poignant and memorable and it affects you. You can't just kill off characters because "Oh yeah, like lets make an art film, k?" but you can do it if it's... real, for lack of a better word. I stress that it has to be truly real, though. If they did kill Elena in Among Thieves I would have gone primordial and saddled up my pale horse to show Roland Emmerich what disaster-porn really is.

So here's hoping that if they do it, they do it damn well right, or else not bother.

EDIT: If anybody can name that film noir, I will sent beautiful angels to whisper sweet nothings into your ear.

Not really. But I will be impressed.

I've steeled myself for Sully dying, but I'd be willing to accept Chloe going out in style.

But I will sing the song that ends the world if they touch one hair on my Elena's head. They scared me enough when she ate that grenade in Uncharted 2.

'Cause it might be Elena? :P

You're evil. :mellow:

Personally, I hate it when people feel the need to murder awesome, beloved characters just because it'd be epic or dramatic or something. "Oh no, we haven't killed anyone important yet! The story hasn't actually been dramatic or great! SOMEONE MUST DIE." <_<

In all seriousness, though, Vorgy, you didn't watch the cutscenes to the Uncharted games on YouTube or some crap, did you? I mean, really. That's just criminal.

A thing of beauty? It's terrible! I've never liked the idea that killing beloved characters = great writing...

It seems painfully obvious that Sully will be the one to bite it in Uncharted 3, so I hope that ND will dash everyone's expectations by making that not happen. But what's the alternative? Kill Chloe or Elena? Jeez, any of those would be a downer. I like these games mostly upbeat adventure stories, thank you very much. <_<

EDIT: Yeah, I'm pretty much making Wolfy's post for her. :P

Well darn, man. :P You totally did.

They seem to do most everything in the Uncharted series to further explore Nate's character. They give him different characters to play off of, they make things happen to him/his friends that'll make him react in ways we haven't seen before... I guess it's only a matter of time before they kill one of his friends and show him dealing with that.

And Sully seems the most likely candidate. :/ I doubt they'd kill Elena because she's his primary love interest, and Chloe's death wouldn't strike him in that same way that the death of his sorta father-figure would. And we all know that the father figure almost always dies.

Here's hoping he doesn't, though.


At least I can rest easy knowing that if Nate is killed, then the Uncharted series is officially ended, so I doubt that'd ever happen. But if Nate is killed, then other people will be killed. Real people. Lots of them. In terrible ways. And the world will learn that werewolves are real.


EDIT: Oh hey, did you want to see a beautiful HD direct feed of the gameplay footage shown at E3?

I thought so. Well, here it is.

This is the gameplay from the Jimmy Fallon episode the demo was also shown on (after E3), though, I think. The player does different things than in the E3 gameplay demo. Just ever so slightly, like killing people in different ways.

Shut your mouth, Ocelot! If Chloe dies, I'll make sure Naughty Dog will never publish a game ever again.

Care to make that a duet? Those are my feelings exactly.

Seriously, if they even consider killing Elena Naughty Dog will find out just how Monstrous I can be...

Well, Evan Wells said on Twitter that the Uncharted 3 beta won't be posted tomorrow until the PSN store update is posted.

Meaning that, he says, it will probably be up around approximately 2 PM PDT (which is 5 PM EST, dammit -_- ). He also added, however, that Naughty Dog has no control over when it's posted. They said they wanted to get it up first thing in the morning in Pacific time, but it looks like that might not happen.

So anyway, yeah. Just a heads-up.
I thought it would be up early in the morning in PDT, like they had hoped. But apparently Sony isn't letting them do that. :(

EDIT: When asked the file size, he says it's "~1.7 GB."

So now I have to wait 'til 5 and still wait for it to download that huge file.

If you do not own or have not played Infamous or Littlebigplanet, there is no doubt in my mind that those are the two games you should pick. Especially with the fact that both of these games have sequels now, it might be worthwhile to catch up on the story of Infamous or see if you like LBG enough to buy the sequel. For the best value, the other options cannot beat these two.

Wolfy has made a checklist, guys. A checklist of things you are supposed to do in the beta in order to earn various goodies in the final game. And I will be checking them off along with her.

Forget going on a vacation for the summer; we're going to Uncharted territory. That's it! We'll have a Playstation vacation!

We'll have a Playstation vacation...
And our elation will grow.
With this new fixation,
We'll both risk starvation,
To play our Playstation more!
Playstation... vacation...

Oh geez... I can't go on. Joker probably won't even see this. :P

Ugh. You're lucky. I'm gonna be jealous. I don't even get to play until the fourth, maybe fifth, and I probably won't even get to play much. :( I don't know why my life had to get all busy exactly when beta starts. Hopefully I'll still be able to get those goodies. I'm hoping to, yet also dreading to read detailed descriptions of the awesomeness, people.

AW MAN, SORRY ABOUT THAT, FATE. :(


I AM OFFICIALLY GOING TO USE THIS TOPIC FOR A COUNTDOWN NOW. I DO NOT CARE HOW MANY TIMES I MIGHT DOUBLE-TRIPLE-QUADRUPLE POST.

8 HOURS LEFT AND COUNTING UNTIL "THE EARLIEST TIME IT WILL BE POSTED," ACCORDING TO ARNE.

WHILE WE'RE WAITING, WE CAN THROW A BEFORE-BETA PARTY:
