What’s Next? 12/8/2016

Now that I’m finally finished with Uncharted 2-4, it’s time to move on to other games in my backlog. I might not do reviews on all of them, simply because of the sheer volume of them all (Over 360 games on Steam and many more in GOG).

Well, I believe I’m going to be tackling what I have on the PS4 at the moment. Right now then, that’ll be Bloodborne, Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2. I had a few hours in Darksiders II on PS3, so it’ll probably be the next game that I’ll attempt to finish. It’s also a great game so there’s no point in putting it off for much longer.

I’ve organized my Steam library is a way that I’ll be able to tackle my backlog even further. Out of the over 360 games that I have, a few of them were bound to be crap so I placed those in their own category. The same was done for multiplayer focused games and then games that I really have no interest in playing at all.

Hopefully I can start tackling these games and bring this backlog into line.

Uncharted 3 Drake’s Deception Review

Uncharted_3-logo.pngLast night I got around to finishing up Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. In my review of Uncharted 2, I noted some of my qualms with the overall story of the game and I’m happy to say that Uncharted 3 delivers a much more cohesive and awe-inspiring story compared to the previous installment. Note that this will be my final Uncharted review, at least in the Nathan Drake tetralogy. Continue reading “Uncharted 3 Drake’s Deception Review”

Review: Uncharted 2: Electric Boogaloo

Review: Uncharted 2: Electric Boogaloo

Preface

            So after finishing up with Uncharted 4, and really loving it, I decided to go ahead and pick up the Nathan Drake Collection for PS4 as well. It includes Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. I played about an hour of Drake’s Fortune before deciding that the game hasn’t aged very well, therefore I won’t be doing a review of Drake’s Fortune until I decide that I want to finish it which could possibly be never.

Instead, I decided to go ahead and play Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. I ultimately did myself a disservice by not playing this game on the PS3 back in its heyday. The remaster on PS4 is very good, I must say that the graphical fidelity doesn’t hold up as much as it used to but I won’t be knocking it too much for that. The character models still look good and the environments look even better. Uncharted 2 was a technical achievement at the time of its release and it still holds up very well.

Behind the Times: Uncharted 3 and my thoughts so far.

I have an Uncharted 2 review that I’m going to try and proof read and edit before I post more crap like the Uncharted 4 review. No, I’m not going to play the first Uncharted game as it really hasn’t aged well.

As you’ll soon see in my Uncharted 2 review, I ultimately did myself a disservice by not completing any of the Uncharted games back in their heyday on the PS3. Now that I’m rectifying that, I’m finding them harder to play.

But whatever, I finished Uncharted 2 and now I’m on to Uncharted 3. I gotta say, I’m really enjoying Uncharted 3. It just seems to be a much more refined experience than Uncharted 2, the action isn’t always in your face and I like the more adventurous aspects of these games any way.

The new character introduced here Charlie Cutter is absolutely hilarious. I’m only 47% through the game right now so he’ll probably betray me or something and that’s why he isn’t in Uncharted 4.

Oh well, just want to get that Doughnut Drake speedrun out of the way eventually.

Screw all that other stuff, here’s an Uncharted 4 Review

uncharted_4_-_a_thiefs_endUncharted 4

I recently picked up a PS4 Slim during the Black Friday deals. Bundled with it was a copy of Uncharted 4. Now, I’m not usually one for these kinds of action-adventure type games but I was very surprised at this game.

Naughty Dog is a very popular studio that continues to push the boundaries of cinematic-type games. They’ve released the Uncharted series, The Last of Us and are currently working on The Last of Us 2 as well as a standalone, spin-off Uncharted game that focuses on other characters from the series.
