I normally don’t care about E3. Too often the only thing you really see are trailers with little to no game play, and when you do see game play, it is usually so over polished that the end product is almost unrecognizable. Remember a few years ago when Microsoft was “demonstrating” the XBoxOne’s graphics and we later found out that they were really running the soft wear on a super high end PC? well, that’s E3 in a nut shell. So, why am i talking about this?
Well, part of it is my overwhelming love for Naughty Dog and the “Uncharted” games (as i’ve said in the past, “Uncharted 2” and “The Last of Us” are both on my top ten games of all time list). But there are a couple of other reasons. For the most part, the whole “cinematic” trailer for the “Uncharted” series has felt like less of a lie than it does with other games, as these games are meant to be like big budget action movies. On top of that, “Uncharted 3” was something of a let down for me. i wouldn’t say it was bad, but it was a noticeable week link when compared to the other two games. Because of this, i was really interested in what Naught Dog was going to do for this game.
So what do we know? Well, Nation Drake has quit the thresher hunting life, something he probably should have done after pirates started shooting at him at the beginning of the first game, or when two consecutive treasures turned out to be cursed. Anyways, he has quit but something has pulled him back in, so he has gone back to get Sully’s help. Drake then heads into a jungle where people were caged and left to die, the skeleton at the end looking very pirate-like. I’m guessing that “pirates” are going to be a big thing in this game. Will we get to command a ship? Probably not, but it would be cool. And did any one else catch the fact that he was wearing Sir Francis Drake’s ring…on his finger…does this mean he and Elena have gotten married? If so, will that be a major souse of tension in the game? No body knows, that that’s what i’m thinking.
So what do you think? and ideas of hopes for this new game? leave a comment and let me know!
