See Uncharted 3 gameplay look amazing, see Jimmy Fallon look like a total arse

"Wow, that looks amaziSHUTUPJIMMYFALLON!"

"Hey, Drake's new hand-to-hand-combat looks really upgradeSHUTUPJIMMYFALLON!"

"Jesus, the set-pieces and dramatic pacing look utterly stunning, and their integration with the in-game action bodes for a whole new level of the Naughty Dog magi...


That's what's going to go through your head as you watch this video of Uncharted 3 gameplay from last night's Late Night. Just warning you. Every silver lining has a cloud.


Ahem, anyway, Uncharted 3 then. Looks mighty good . Assuming the automatic drivel-cannon is right when he says this is the start of the game "because Sully's with you" (*facepalm*), it looks like ND is going for another "Holy crap!" opening scene with this escape from a burning, steadily collapsing chateau (whoever's it is). It'll have to go a long way to beat the comic and dramatic pacing of Uncharted 2's opening train climb, but so far I'm not worried. The question regarding Uncharted 3 is not "Will it be amazing?", but "Will it be as big a jump from Uncharted 2 as Uncharted 2 was from Uncharted?" And when that's your only worry, you know you're in a good situation.

So what do you think? Drake's faster, longer combat combos got you excited about more fluid punch-ups? Looking forward to getting Sully and Drake together for what will hopefully be a much longer period than in Uncharted 2? Really really hate Jimmy Falolon? Let me know in the comments.

    Wow. I must be the only person in the world that likes Jimmy Fallon, lol. Then again, I don't just follow crowds. :)

    I personally don't like Fallon, but I respect the guy and give him credit for speaking to developers and premiering game demos while other hosts are kissing some plastic-enhanced starlet's ass and letting her blab on about her next upcoming shit project.
  • ChuckB - December 15, 2010 7:01 a.m.

    So much hate.
  • Fuzunga - December 15, 2010 3:11 a.m.

    You know what's funny? Nobody complains when any body else talks during a demo. He's the first person to play Uncharted 3 and he's doing it on a national TV show. He's probably a combination of nervous and excited. Seriously, you guy's aren't enraged when say a game journalist or developer chatters straight through a demo?

    God I hate arrogant elitist's.

    @BroGamer Uhm, no offense, but did you really just say that you "predict" that a game sequel will be better than the original? That's not a new theory, it's history.
  • BroGamer - December 15, 2010 12:19 a.m.

    I noticed something cool. Assasin's Creed wasn't that very good and neither was Uncharted, but when the sequels came around, AC2 was high in the reviews as well a U2:AT. So I predict that the game will be like that video just 10 times better and without Jimmy Fallon.

    Jimmy Falon is and idiot who pretends he plays videogames wen he clearly doesnt as he cant even aim which is the simplest thing EVER Overall jimmy falon is a retard
  • bitchassafriBLAMamericANTISTA - December 14, 2010 11:26 p.m.

    why are you hating on pretty much the only member of the media who likes video games? at least he isn't talking about how this game is statistically proven to make me violent and cause me to rape everything i see (fox news)
  • mrmorozov987 - December 14, 2010 10:53 p.m.

    Oh, and I love the part where Jimmy says, "It looks phenomenal!" And the developer just says, "I know." I love you, Naughty Dog.
  • mrmorozov987 - December 14, 2010 10:50 p.m.

    He sounds like one of the crappy Let's Play people on YouTube. Apparently, narrating what's on the screen for our apparently blind eyeballs counts as entertainment. Still, Uncharted 3 looks intensely awesome, but you'd think Fallon would be better after he supposedly played the game the previous night. You know, better, like knowing how to fire a gun.

    jimmy fallon may be kinda annoying but he tries and he is introducing more games to the mainstream so i gotta give him some props. I played hydrophobia next to the lead developer at pax and it was one of the highest stress situations in gaming for me so i know what its like.
  • NightCrawler_358 - December 14, 2010 10:01 p.m.

    I'm loving the new melee combos, even more epic! This looks great, and i'm, curious about how the man said Sully is Nate's mentor. Also, Jimmy is pretty dumb: I was playing 2 the other day... so how do you shoot? Anyways i have high expectations that I know Naughty Dog will live up to.
  • Wolverine08 - December 14, 2010 9:22 p.m.

    @Channel4 John Prescott is only more entertaining because he's an utterly useless MP. And BTW if they were to show a Big set piece it would probably be done nearer release date, not at this stage.
  • Manguy17 - December 14, 2010 8:37 p.m.

    "OH its R 1 to shoot?" great guy to let show off some of the first gameplay...
  • BodyDamage - December 14, 2010 8:29 p.m.

    i want falons face punched. uncharted 3....words fail.
  • CharlieFockstrot - December 14, 2010 8:05 p.m.

    Two dev's and a div
  • CharlieFockstrot - December 14, 2010 8:03 p.m.

    Double facepalm for 4 mins.
  • JohnnyMaverik - December 14, 2010 7:35 p.m.

    I'm not questioning Uncharted's quality, but "best videogame franchise ever"???? WTF!? He lost any gamer credit with that comment imo.
  • MajorPonch - December 14, 2010 7:03 p.m.

    I'll admit, Fallon annoyed me on a level I can't describe last night because he kept talking through what was the biggest thing I was looking forward to this week. That being said, I like him overall. What I don't get is that if he is a gamer, how couldn't he figure out the controls after saying he had been playing Uncharted 2 recently? Based off what I could hear, they haven't changed that dramatically. I don't know... The game looks absolutely fantastic, but I really wish I could have seen the developers play through the whole thing.
