completed Uncharted 3 by now, you may think you’ve had your fill of the dashing
adventurer, but that doesn’t mean Drake is taking a break. He’s already jumping
back into action in the PS Vita launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss. This
newest set of screens for the title shows Drake sniping away in the jungle, no
doubt to save an attractive woman. Take a look…
Sony has announced new DLC
gear for Uncharted 3's multiplayer mode, allowing players to confuse
the slower of their friends with Killzone-themed costumes and
accessories. The full-body Capture Trooper skin joins ISA and
Helghast headgear for custom characters, all of whom can look forward
to getting shot up in newly-revealed maps for the first of the game's
North is arguably the best-known actor in videogames, due in no small
part to his having starred in pretty much all of them. And while he's
relishing his role as the vocal and facial lead of the Assassin's
Creed franchise, North has a suggestion for Ubisoft: he wants to
start strapping ping-pong balls to his extremities in the name of
Assassin's Creed, and he wants other voice-actors to do the same...
Marvel vs Capcom 3 is out tomorrow (couldn’t you tell when you read our review?)
and while it’s just an update of a less-than-a-year-old game, how many games
will you play this fall that star a talking, mercenary raccoon? As part of one
last push from Capcom before the game is out, we have the fancy cinematic
launch trailer. While it might be lacking when it comes to character movement,
we really like the dramatic tableaus the many fighters take in the video.
In these days with massive launches seemingly every other day, it’s not too shocking to see millions of sales for the launches of major games. Battlefield 3 sold 5 million, Arkham City did 2 million in the first week and Gears of War 3 sold 3 million in the first week, all of which are impressive milestones, and last week’s biggest hit has done something quite notable as well. Today Sony revealed it moved 3.8 million copies worldwide of Nathan Drake’s most recent adventure, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception...
Naughty Dog has delivered the third and
final behind-the-scenes video for Uncharted 3, starring the studio's
cinematic lead Taylor Kurosaki, and voice actors Nolan North (Nathan
Drake) and Emily Rose (Elena Fisher). Assuming your brain still has
room for Uncharted 3 stimuli after a week of playing the actual
game, the video provides some historical context for Drake's
fictitious adventures as well as some insight as to where Naughty Dog
dug up its inspiration...
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is one of the most exciting prospects on PS
Vita. But why sideline its already ultra-accessible control system by
giving it a needless touch screen mode? According to Game Star
(after translation), the game will feature a 'tap to attack' mode.
Super Street Fighter IV 3DS features touch screen attack shortcuts on
the touchscreen which massively unbalance the online game, but on Vita? Utter madness!
During a recent hands-on with THQ’s upcoming UFC Undisputed
3, the developers talked a little bit about how the game’s menus have been
entirely redesigned. Instead of having the menu icons appear over generic
wallpapers, this iteration of the fighting franchise will pan over different
high-resolution pictures of fighters. While the game will, obviously, ship with
a number of different backgrounds, THQ says that it plans to offer additional
image packs after launch, which will be made available as downloadable content...
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is epic,
ergo listening to its soundtrack should - in theory - increase one's
real life epicness by roughly 300%. Maybe. To be honest, we're still
working out the nitty gritty science of it all, but for those who
wish to experiment for themselves, Sony has just released the entire
Uncharted 3 soundtrack on the PlayStation Store.
album is currently selling for $9.99, and is also available for
download on iTunes. It features the
original score for Naughty Dog's sequel created by Greg Edmonson, a
TV and film composer who won the award for Best
Original Music award from the Academy of Interactive Arts &
Sciences and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves...
Above: Don't watch past 10:00 unless you don't mind SPOILERS
Still not sure if you want to get
Uncharted 3, even after reading our 9/10 review?
Will watching the first 20 minutes of gameplay for the PS3-exclusive change
your mind? Then this video might help you out, but it comes with a heavy price,
namely spoiling all of the early game. And if you don’t want a major,
MAJOR SPOILER, stop watching around the 10 minute mark. You have been warned.
Anyway, here’s the video for
first two acts of undoubtedly today’s biggest release. Enjoy!
