Review: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (Playstation 3) Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Genre(s): Action Adventure, Platform, Third Person Shooter Released: November 1, 2011 ESRB Rating: T – Teen Uncharted 3 was my most anticipated game of the year. It’s been a week since its release, and I have finished the single player campaign twice (Normal and Crushing), and I can safely say that it lived up to my anticipation and expectations. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves set the bar extremely high, and I believe Naughty Dog are right when they say the kind of jump between Uncharted to Uncharted 2 can only happen once a generation. Where Among Thieves vastly improved in every way over the first game, Drake’s Deception is only a minor step above the second in the … [Read more...]

Uncharted 3 Co-op Adventure Gameplay

The above video from GameTrailers shows off some gameplay footage of Uncharted 3's co-op adventure mode, and it looks fantastic. You'll probably recognize some Uncharted 2 characters in there (as well as one from the first game), and the different adventure maps (one of which is also from the first game). I've been playing Uncharted 3's competitive multiplayer all month long, Team Objective, but co-op is what I'm looking forward to the most (besides the single player, obviously). During the June/July beta, I played co-op (adventure and arena) almost exclusively all the way up to level 30 something. Once I beat the single player, my time spent with Uncharted 3 online will be 95% spent on co-op. If you're going to be playing co-op in Uncharted 3 next week, feel free to add me on PSN. … [Read more...]

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Launch Trailer

Epic trailer is seriously epic. The above launch trailer shows off why Uncharted 3 is my most anticipated game. Everything about it just screams awesome. As much as I've been enjoying the UC3 multiplayer subway promotion, it is the single player that makes Uncharted 3 so anticipated. The multiplayer is really just a bonus (and a great one at that) as far as I'm concerned. November 1st needs to hurry up and get here. Just a little over a week away now! … [Read more...]

Experience Full Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beginning October 1st, When You Buy A Subway Soda

If you're a PS3 owner, there's a little game coming out on November 1st that you may have heard of called Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Okay, it's not a little game and you've definitely heard of it; it is after all kind of a big deal and one of the most anticipated titles of the Holiday season. Well good news, beginning this Saturday, October 1st, you'll be able to experience the full Uncharted 3 multiplayer. Well competitive multiplayer anyway. All you need to do is visit your local Subway and purchase a 30oz drink; you don't even need to buy a sandwich (though it has its own rewards too). Yup, you can gain complete access to Uncharted 3's multiplayer for a month before release for the price of a large soda, while also getting a sweet collector's cup. Every cup is a guaranteed … [Read more...]

Uncharted 3 PS3 Bundle Coming Soon

If you don't have a Playstation 3, hold off another month before getting one. Sony today announced a killer new bundle. For $299 you get a 320GB PS3 Slim, the game Uncharted 3, 1 PS3 controller, and Playstation Plus for one month. When I got my PS3 back in 2009, it was also $299, but it was a 120GB model (there were no 320's at the time). Of course it came with two games (InFamous and Killzone 2). But we're talking a brand new 320GB PS3 and one of the most anticipated games of the year bundled for only $299. The bundle is releasing November 1st (same day as Uncharted 3), so go pre-order the PS3 320GB Uncharted 3 Bundle now. It's definitely a purchase you won't regret. … [Read more...]

First TV Commercial For Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

Tonight is the opening kickoff of the 2011 NFL season, and during tonight's game between New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers the first television commercial for Naughty Dog's next installment in the Uncharted franchise will air. That ad, which is made up entirely of in-game footage, is how you sell a game in 30 seconds. Fantastic TV spot. Uncharted 3 hits store shelves on November 1st, exclusively on Playstation 3. … [Read more...]

New Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Trailer

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta Impressions

Since the Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta is now open to everyone with a PSN account, and I've been playing it for over a week now, now is as good a time as any to post my Beta Impressions. I've hit level 28 or 29 at this point, and have really enjoyed my time with the beta. I prefer the co-op to the competitive, which is why I haven't played that much of the beta since Monday when they switched out Co-op Arena with Co-op Hunter. … [Read more...]

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition Revealed, Pre-Order Bonuses

The Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Collector's Edition has been revealed, and it's packing some goodies. The $99.99 collector's edition will include a functional traveling chest replica, which will house the rest of the contents. The Uncharted 3 game will come in a special steelbook game case. Other features of the collector's edition are a full size replica of Drake's belt-buckle and necklace (complete with Sir Francis Drake’s ring), and an exclusive statue of Nathan Drake from Sideshow Collectibles. That's a pretty nice collection of stuff, but probably not enough to make me shell out $100 on it. As for the pre-order bonuses, those have been revealed too and they're reasonable; no exclusive content, just early access to multiplayer boosters, medal kickbacks and weapon … [Read more...]

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Modes & Beta Details

Arne Meyer, community strategist at Naughty Dog, has posted a new blog on the Official Playstation Blog detailing the multiplayer modes featured in Uncharted 3 and dropping info concerning the beta. It's a pretty long post, so do click the link to get all (the 98% that I don't mention here) info. There will be a Free For All mode, and a new mode for Team Deathmatch that is Three Team Deathmatch that is simply 2v2v2. And all character skins will be customizable. All things co-op related will be covered at a future date, although Arne did say that co-op in Uncharted 3 has been vastly expanded on over the co-op in Uncharted 2. Now onto the important stuff... the beta! PSN Plus members, in addition to those who purchase "specially marked copies" of Infamous 2 will be granted early … [Read more...]
