Hey everybody! I’m sorry that I didn’t get this page in over the weekend – and frankly, I can’t think of a good excuse. So I’ll just avoid the “stone-throw” altogether and dive right in!
First up, I’m happy to share with you all that Naughty Dog has released a high-quality version of the demo showcased on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The demo doesn’t include any hand-to-hand combat, unfortunately, but it does show better gunplay. (All of the bullets made contact this time around.) As well due to the higher clarity, we can confirm that UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception brings back elements from the first game such as realistic motions of Nate panting, looking around, etc. I’m happy to see it making a return.
Not only has Sony made pre-orders available for UNCHARTED 3, but you can also opt in for e-mail updates via the official website and receive a voucher code for a free Drake’s Deception theme. In addition to these features the site features a behind the scenes video, screen-shots, the official trailer, and a really cool background.
Recently, Game Informer Magazine held an interview with co-president of Naughty Dog, Evan Wells, and creative director and writer Amy Hennig. They discussed everything from the story’s influence, to the possibility of PlayStation Move compatibility, to the UNCHARTED series coming to PSP2.
It is apparent that the press conference held on December 12th was UNCHARTED related; a press conference that beheld far more extended gameplay of the anticipated sequel, no less. Check out Naughty Dog’s official website for a list of impressions from almost all of the mainstream video game news websites. These impressions are very detailed, describing much more of the collapsing Chateau level than revealed to the public.
And finally, a fan of UNCHARTED who was at a specific screening of David O. Russell’s The Fighter caught up with the director, and explained to him the fan desire for Nathan Fillion to play our half tucked hero Nathan Drake in the UNCHARTED: Drake’s Fortune film. We contacted the man (Greg Blessing) who was explaining to Russell the fan casting-choice from his perspective. And if this weren’t enough, the outspoken game director David Jaffe (Creator and director of the Twisted Metal series, director of God of War) had some serious opinions about the situation via his Twitter. Good ol’ David standing up for gamers as always!
Well, that’s all, folks! I’m off to watch a movie or something! And remember; be safe over the next few days!! Happy Holidays to you all!
