Being Nathan Drake

gareth886

7 years ago

I've been replaying Uncharted 2 again since the PSN has been down. The game is absolute gaming gold. Never, in recent years, has a game captured my imagination like Uncharted. It's not just the incredible gameplay, but also the chemistry between the characters. I can't think of any other game that even comes close to the chemistry between the characters in this game.

I cannot wait for the next instalment. As for the movie...I'd rather they didn't make it. The more I read about it, the more it sounds like an entirely different concept altogether.

Abe HD decision due in the summer

gareth886

7 years ago

Wish they would just hurry up and make a decision already. If they are taking this long just to decide on which one to remake, I hate to think how long it will actually take them to make the actual game.

I just want more Abe, old or new suits me fine.

Uncharted movie director: trust me

gareth886

7 years ago

I wasn't keen on this movie from the moment I heard I had Walhberg was lined up to star as Drake. He's a fairly bland actor and lacks the personality of Nathan Drake. Not that it matters anyway because it seems that the movie is going to be so far removed from the game that it doesn't really matter who plays the lead.

Surely nobody can argue with this. It truly is an outstanding game. Its been years since I've played a game that captured the sense of adventure that this game has.

UK charts: FIFA 10 beats Uncharted 2

gareth886

9 years ago

Uncharted was only on sale 1 day when these charts were compiled, compare that to Fifa being on sale for an entire week. I think we'll be seeing Uncharted on top of the all format charts next week. A hugely impressive number 2 position considering it was only on sale for 1 day.

Time is right to leave Lara, says Gard

gareth886

9 years ago

I find it sad that the man who created Lara Croft no longer has any say in what is done with the character. Tomb Raider was (and in many respects, still is) a great franchise, its just a shame that the developers keep moving it a step in the wrong direction with every new Tomb Raider game that they release.

Fans have been calling out for it to return to a more adventure focused series for years but the developers don't seem to be listening, in-fact they seem to be doing the exact opposite. They just keep adding more pointless combat, bigger guns and more vehicles.

Uncharted 2 voted best game of E3

Rightfully so. The game looks great. I'm glad a real game was voted best of show as opposed to the casual stuff that is becoming way too common in the industry today.

Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta

gareth886

I don't really care about the multiplayer, as long as the single player game is as great as the first. Can't wait to play the new installment. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune is still my favourite single player game of the current generation.

Good to see this doing well. It's great fun online. I haven't been playing anything else lately. I'm also a huge COD4 fan and have managed to adapt to this game nicely.

@DFawkes. The same thing about the figures can be said about any game, of just Killzone.

Tomb Raider: Underworld

@creepylizard

The review was well enough written, it just wasn't balanced enough. All her comments are probably valid but she didn't balance it out with the positives that would lead readers to believe that it justifys the score of 7 that she gave it.

I really don't get Ellie's review style at all. Two-thirds of the review reads like a 4/10 game then suddenly in the last paragraph she throws in a couple of lines about what she liked and gave it a 7.

I just don't get it. Her points seem valid enough but the review doesn't seem balanced enough to show why she thought it warrented a 7.

Tomb Raider Retrospective

gareth886

10 years ago

Its difficult to keep a game like this fresh throughout the years while trying to keep the winning formula the same. Tomb Raider, to me, was all about the sense of adventure, exploring and a little bit of action.

I am more than happy with the way the current series has panned out. The new series may suffer slightly in the reviews for being more of the same but I'm more than happy with the current formula. After all, it just wouldn't be Tomb Raider if they mixed things up a bit.

So...from my point of view anyway...I want more of the same and lots of the stuff that made Tomb Raider great in the first place.

PSP-3000 gets UK date, price

gareth886

10 years ago

I'm slightly confused. The PSP-3000 will be available on 17th October for 149.99 but we will also be able to buy a White version 2 days earlier for 199Euro. Am I correct? I assume that this White version won't be available in the UK, hence why a euro price has been quoted.

I have to agree with 5haun, although she is very attractive, she doesn't have the stunning looks of the previous model. She just looks like your typical fit bird out on the piss on a saturday night. I still definately would though!

The price point for this is disgusting. If people are buying this it only helps to fuel the rip off Britain culture. What I find even more enraging is the feeble attempt to justify the European price point.

Blu-ray will be history, says Microsoft

gareth886

10 years ago

Sounds like sour grapes if you ask me. I believe wide spread Digital distribution is quite a few years away. Broadband speeds have a lot of catching up to do before digital distribution will become mainstream. I live in the countryside and I'm lucky if I can get a download speed of 1meg. That speed doesn't look as if its changing anytime soon. I'd hate to think how long it would take me to download a full length HD movie.

@drumbaby
The PS3 hasn't needed regular patches. As far as I'm aware there has only been 1 outright "patch". The rest have been firmware updates that have added new features to the system. Just like the 360 has had firmware updates to add new features.

Makes total sense. The Wii is seeing like hot cakes. Why would you want to reduce the price. Non-issue really. I think the Wii is fairly priced too.
