Re: The Best PS3 Exclusive Games?

Oh and there was a 10 minute long sequence where I was just walking through the desert in slow motion that was extremely annoying.

Were most people disappointed and surprised at the lack of paranormal aspects in this game? I just find it so bizarre that to close out their trilogy they take away all the fantastical aspects and just leave dudes with guns.

I was mildly surprised but not disppointed. I believe the Vita game was similarly bereft. (And while it wasn't exactly widely publicized, I know that in the postmortem for the Vita game, the developers reported that Amy Hennig told them the supernatural elements weren't required to make an Uncharted game.)

I wasn't disappointed by the lack of paranormal stuff, but I was disappointed with the story overall. It felt like the beginning, middle, and end were all written by different people that never actually bothered to talk to one another. It felt like a rough draft.

The whole beginning of the game introduced the possibility that Sully wasn't all that he seemed. I thought we were going to get some stunning revelation about his character and the nature of he and Drake's relationship...but absolutely nothing ever came of it. Frustrating.

And yeah, that desert sequence is one of the most annoying things I've ever done in a video game.

After the awesomeness of the first two games, I found Uncharted 3 to be a major disappointment. It looked great, and the gameplay was fine, but the story just left so much to be desired.

Yeah, I agree with that. And I was also quite disappointed in the story overall. It`s maddening, as there was much potential and some great characters introduced, like Cutter. But a lot of story threads just disappeared. And honestly, I didn`t like the ending at all. I know many disliked the boss battle in Uncharted 2, but I felt it was involving, whereas here, it felt half-assed and underwhelming when all was said and done came down to a QTE. Don`t know about anyone else, but for me it felt anti-climactic.

That looks incredible. The facial animations look a lot more detailed. And that forest gave me chills.

Btw, it's been confirmed that that trailer we've seen is all rendered in-engine in real-time at 60fps. The devs say that starting with Uncharted 4, all of their cutscenes will be rendered in-engine rather than being pre-rendered CGI.

There's a 720p version of the trailer at the link. Make sure to watch it in full-screen. The detail is incredible.

I started Infamous 2 tonight. Already fun, and that was a crazy opening. Did they mention this "Beast" in the first game?

Re: The Best PS3 Exclusive Games?

They did indeed.

I thought Infamous 2 was okay in its own right, but I didn't really like it as a sequel to the first game. I loved Infamous so much when I first played, and I didn't like the direction they took the story in #2. It's still a fun game, but I prefer to think of it as its own thing.

Re: The Best PS3 Exclusive Games?

I'm most of the way through Infamous 2 and I'm enjoying it a lot. It's been awhile since I played the first one but I think I'm enjoying this one more. The movement seems to work a lot better and that's the most important thing to me in an open world game. I also love the ice jump power!
