Casting begins for Uncharted 3 reality game show

Fancy yourself a man of a mystery, adventure, and daring-do? If you're 21 or over, a resident of the US, and legally allowed to operate a vehicle, you're halfway qualified to act out your Nathan Drake fantasies on Spike TV's new reality game show Uncharted 3: Race to the Ring.

Developed in part by Naughty Dog and Sony Computer Entertainment, the show is described in the casting call as “a blockbuster special that brings the game to life!” which is looking for “fans of adventure, video game enthusiasts, puzzle solvers and risk takers”.  Those who think they fit the profile, and can take a week off in October to travel to California, are invited to fill out the application and email it along with a video, pic, or paragraph explaining why they'd make an ideal Nathan Drake (or Natalie Drakette) to spikecasting@spike.com.

Little details are given as to what the show will include, or what exactly contestants are playing for, but if it's anything like Sony's other sponsored reality TV show, The Tester, expect a group of colorful twenty-somethings engaging in charmingly low-rent activities while smack talking the crap out of each other when no one is around. And yes, I genuinely enjoyed The Tester. Want to fight about it?!

    Sounds intresting. Oh and gr it's time to get some new reCAPTCHA the spam has returned.

    The guys explained on TDar that the spam is generally posted by foreign workers who are hired to come on sites like this and spam it up as much as possible. No reCAPTCHA in the world can stop a genuine human, and if you don't mind, the CAPTCHAs are a pain in the arse as is; there's really no need for requests to make them even more so.

    I dunno if this would be funny or bad. It's somewhat reassuring that Naughty Dog is involved in its making, but it still sounds a bit corny. :p

    If it did not have anything to do with the Uncharted series, I wouldn't even bother to watch it. Still curious as to what the events and prizes are.
