EDIT: Speaking of the trailer, have any of you guys watched it today?

Hmm, don't mind if I do.

There's a bit at 1:16 or so where Nate is sprinting through the narrow alleyways in that desert city that looks like a really chase sequence in the game, but it also reminds me of the leaked footage of Beyond Good & Evil 2:

Specifically the parts near the end where Jade is running up stairs and pushing off walls. I've always thought that footage looked absolutely amazing, like the BG&E that I love mixed with some Mirror's Edge brilliance, and now it gets to be in Uncharted too! Is it November yet?

Wish I could join you guys, but I'm smothered in work right now that needs doing.

Maybe if I claw my way to the surface, I'll try to unpack the PS3 and join.

Sorry for vanishing outta that game, guys, but my PS3 froze (again) and I think it needs a break. We were getting pretty stomped, too, so I figured I'd get while the going was good. :P

Speaking of which, was one of the guys in that last game a Naughty Dog employee? I'm pretty sure he was playing as Eddy or one of the pirates...

He was only a ND employee if he was one of Eddy's pirates with the Naughty Dog logo on his chest. One of Eddy's pirates ("Prakoso") and Eddy himself were both made available in DLC.

Also the Dogs always have red paws beside their names where people rank 60 and higher have their rank beside their name tags in-game.

...Dangit. Now I have to get the DLC so I can play as Eddy. Curse you, Naughty Dog! Stealing money from me! :P

Weird, I've never seen an Eddy online. You'd think because he's such a popular character I would have seen him around. :huh:

Ugh, sorry you guys. I played a game where I died thirteen times and had like 3 kills, and then played a game where I had to kill you, and then I had to leave. :mellow: Not a very successful evening with Uncharted, I must say. Oh well, it was still a good time.

Good games, guys. :D

Although, Hawk and Squirrel, you guys really tested Wolfy there. I mean, in any other game you might have been able to get away with stunts like that, but Uncharted? In an online match? While she was on a big killing streak? You're lucky you failed so miserably to TK her. Seriously... very, very lucky. :ph34r:

Good thing Grommy dragged her and Harry into some co-op games there at the end to help her simmer down...

Yeah, this pretty much sums things up. Don't have anything to add, really.

Too bad it totally didn't work, though. The co-op games, I mean. Our internet connection was being so screwy that every time we got going at all it'd kick us out. :(

We'll have to try co-op again, Grommy. I'm sorry about that. It's never happened before...

It was squirrel's idea. I blame his Britishness. :D

Anyone up for some Uncharted? I'm feeling quite bored right now and shooting things may get me in the script-writing mood again.

So sorry I had to bail on you guys! :( Really, really sorry about that...

Good games, though. Even if we did do pretty awful on the Sanctuary, it was still fun. :P If my headache hadn't been screwing up my mental facilities, I think I could've done a lot better. My head felt like it was going to split in half at any moment the whole time we were playing. :/

But yeah. Good games.

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

Why didn't they just title that article: "Sully's Going To Die" and stop being so coy?

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

I actually think that this is a good sign. Oh sure, I love Sully (and I agree that he seems the most likely to die), but character deaths have never annoyed me if they are done well. Now, if they aren't then the writers can burn in the fiery depths of my hatred, but with a proper send-off I will be more forgiving if it adds to the story. Besides, having a character die is often a sign that the series wants to move on with its narrative and try something new. I know that one of my favorite shows called Dexter was never the same after one such death and it brought new ideas into a series that was starting to get stagnant. I mean, does anyone here want to see the same plot and characters over and over while knowing that the characters are never in any real danger because the fans love them too much? It happens with comics.
