Thread: Uncharted (PS4)

  1. #1

    Default Uncharted (PS4)

    Just announced at the PS4 Launch Event with a teaser trailer, it was simply titled Uncharted at the end.

    Looks interesting for a teaser.

    Oh damn, they uploaded it quick. I guess Sony had it ready.

    Most people are saying this is a prequel starring Francis Drake... how in the hell? Listen to the guy talking, he doesn't talk like someone from that time period.

    Also bad, but expected, news. It's the same team that did Uncharted 3...

    Amy Hennig is still there though.

    I was probably one of few people who actually thought 3 was maybe even a bit better than 2. Yeah, sure, the plot for the most part didn't make much sense, and it did kinda feel like they started with the set pieces and sorta built everything around that. Though no one can deny that the set pieces were freaking awesome. The action and combat in general was improved, the puzzles were fun and for the most part very difficult, and the characters were all fun and enjoyable. Marlowe could have used a bit more screen time though, and Talbot a lot less.

    Anyway, when it comes to this game, it's definitely not a prequel. Well, not a prequel starring Francis Drake anyway. I think it's possible that the person speaking is some sort of old partner of Nate's, and he somehow took the fall and now he's back to take revenge. Something simple like that. And there's obviously going to be pirates involved.

    .....Hype deflated. I'll be sure to keep my anticipation to a minimum, after the massive disappointment that was Drake's Deception. Still, I'm a sucker for this series, so I'll probably at least rent at some point.

    Hopefully Amy Henning had time to think about what you she did or didn't do with Uncharted 3's plot.

    Amy Henning flat out confirmed in the very videos you could unlock in the game that they developed the set pieces first and then wrote a story around them, noting it probably wasn't the best idea but that they didn't think it was a bad one per say. If Uncharted 3 had a solid story it would have been just as good as its prequels. Everything else was there to make a great Uncharted game, the story was just a godawful mess. I am still stunned at the plot holes and smirk worthy scenerios just so they could do the play section they wanted.

    A perfect exmaple of this nonsense is the Talbot chase sequence. They wanted a chase sequence, they created the chase sequence, they just had no idea who to have you chase. At the end of the day they finally decided it'd be him so they have Talbot, who's surrounded by armed escorts, shit himself and take off through the city when Drake (who just woke up from being drugged) lunges at him. Ultimately ending with another character magically appearing at the "finish line" to knock Drake out and start the next section of the game.

    I thought Uncharted 3's quality was finally explained when Naughty Dog came out that they split the team in half, so only half of the usual suspects worked on Uncharted 3... but the Last of Us was amazing so that shoots that theory to hell. I guess it all comes down to the individual talents on both sides.

    The set pieces in UC3 were awe worthy and were a blast to play... but there was no substance holding them together. I really can't fathom how Amy wrote that. Maybe it really does come all down to Bruce and Neil's directing. They had nothing to do with Uncharted 3 as they split the team and worked on the Last of Us which was, surprise, really fricken good.

    So that explains the pointlessness behind Drake trying to save Sully from the pirates who players knew never had Sully to start with.

    Default Re: Uncharted (PS4)

    I, for one, thought U3 was also vastly inferior in terms of gameplay as well. Gunplay was less tight, AI was more confused, and those unending fistfights...

    As for the narrative, I posted this a while back as just a partial list of questions I had:

    -How did Talbot get shot and survive? Without damage? And why doesn't anyone care?
    -Why are there evil giant spiders in France and Syria?
    -What's actually in the brass bottle in the end? Is it actually supposed to be a Djinn?
    -Why is there a permanent sandstorm around Iram of the Pillars?
    -Why did the museum at the beginning store Drake's ring right next to the object the ring unlocks? Why didn't anyone else figure this out?
    -Why is the evil organization so intent on stealing something that causes people to hallucinate? Hasn't the story pretty effectively demonstrated that they've already got the whole hallucinogen thing figured out?
    -What's the point of the whole ship graveyard/cruise ship sequence? Why did the game make me leave Yemen only to return to Yemen to leave Yemen? Why does Drake ever believe the pirates have Sully? And why do they, Bugs Bunny style, make a fake Sully in one of the storage bays?
    -Where did Drake get the words he apparently decrypts when he first gets the astrolabe?
    -What was the point of the whole talisman that you spend the first half of the game assembling? It has a symbol on it, but how in the world does that tell Drake where he's supposedly going?
    -Why in the world does Elayna, one of the rare independently-minded characters in video games, go all weak in the knees when Drake basically tells her the marriage is back on? Has she had any reason to believe he's made a legitimate change?

    Yes, the villains entire motivation is bull. I hated that. You're led to believe they're after the brass jar because of the hallucinogenic drug stored within so that they can use it to further influence the world as the secret organization... but they already HAVE a potent hallucinogen that they used throughout the entire game and a lot of control in the underworkings of society.

    Well, Amy Hennig explained the first one with him having a bullet proof vest, and him just disappearing when he went into the alley in Syria was due to him having a zip hook or something like that. And the characters does act surprised that he survived, but they never really mention it. He's supposed to be an illusionist like character, but with tricks and gadgets instead.

    The other ones, yeah, blatant flaws. That doesn't stop the game from being a blast to play.

    Yay! Excellent storytelling there!

    Which adds another one, that moment with the tarot card where Chloe and Nate freak out for a second and...well...there's nothing else about it.

    Having recently played U3 again, I'm afraid I still have to disagree. It has so very few extended gameplay sequences that aren't interrupted by something wacky, and there are so many sequences that are just horrible to "walk" through in replays. I'd rather play any of the other Uncharteds again, including Golden Abyss.

    That said, still extremely excited for U4. It seems clear that Naughty Dog has seen past the initial wave of massively positive reviews of U3 to see the undercurrent of fan dissatisfaction, both in the narrative--which they've publicly mentioned having some problems--and in gameplay, with the U2 control-mode added in after the fact.

    I thought that U3 had by far the best villain. And the story of why Drake said that he was related to Francis Drake was nice...easily the 2nd best game to me.

    Uncharted 3 has so many missteps in, I honestly think it could warrant a Harry S. Plinkett length analysis/review...and yet tatermoog still managed to list off half a dozen other issues I'd never even considered before. For a while there, I thought Drake's Deception was well below Among Thieves, but superior to Drake's Fortune. I don't even know if I think that anymore, since I've beat the first two multiple times. Uncharted 3? Got it on release day, finished it, never touched it again. I think I'll replay it on hard (with my expectations next to zero), and sell it. I don't even care that it won't be worth much, since I doubt I'll have any use for it after that. And just for the record I NEVER sell games.

    Ah, yes. I remember watching them discussing this. Whoever they were talking to was acting all excited about it, like they were somehow under the impression that this was a *good* thing.

    Did the game ever outright confirm that the hallucinogen was even in the jar. I mean it becomes obvious once you remember what happened to Drake (again) and Nate's line to Sully after they both wind up in the water towards the end. Because all I remember after Nate and Sully sunk the jar was what was in it?

    Hope you mean Talbot and not Marlowe.

    I meant as a whole antagonist...but Talbot>Marlow. They were the only ones that messed with Drake psychologically.

    Another thing I hate about 3, but this is more my opinion than an actual error, is they threw Nate's ancestry out the window. In the earlier games he's the descendant of Francis Drake, walking in his ancestors footsteps. But in 3 it's revealed that nope, he was just a poor little orphan boy who started claiming he was Drake's descendant so that his life felt like it had worth. Which as an adult and still claiming that just adds a level of creep and nut to Nate which he didn't need, or should have.

    I consider it a big misstep.

    What about the logic behind the enemies? Some of them were just kinda.....ridiculous.


    Hey I know we are in a sinking ship/burning house but lets take priority in killing this guy instead of trying to not die ourselves! YAAAAAAAAAAY!

    It was just embarrassing.
    Oh hey, I do videos on figures and manga and stuff: https://www.youtube.com/thatmanhismerch
