Japan gets Uncharted 4: The Pirate King and the Last Treasure


Same game, different subtitle
Apr 30
// Steven Hansen
We're getting Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (delayed into 2016). Dark. Foreboding. Japan is getting Uncharted 4: The Pirate King and the Last Treasure, which sounds like it could be a Netflix-funded Goonies reboot. Or, you know, One Piece. Maybe Sony should go with Uncharted 4: The Hunger Games in the States?  Goes both ways, though. The States gets Angry Kirby. [via reddit]

Uncharted 4 trailer analysis: Hints at improvements over Uncharted 3

Dec 08 // Steven Hansen
[embed]284668:56563:0[/embed] Skip to about seven minutes into the above trailer to get past all the Uncharted set dressing.  Uncharted 3's biggest fault is that you can see its seams. You can tell that you're engaged in wave-based gunplay segments, or that you're in a stealth segment. The former took over too much of the game, turning it into a cover-based shooting gallery that doesn't encourage any of the movement and locomotion it obviously reserved for delineated platforming segments. Mowing down a lot of folks from up on high behind a wall is a lot less fun that running at them, hip firing, and finishing them off with a punch in the face. So the seven-minute mark here puts us in an "enemy" segment compared to the previous feeling of safety, but without immediately starting combat, and without sacrificing movement. Drake's still sneaking around, enemies abound. And getting a gun at eight minutes doesn't mean "hell fire time" until you're spotted. Then there's familiar gunplay, Naughty Dog showing off its Wet Drake water physics, and all that.  Hop to 10:30. Organic stealth. No cover, or UI element explaining. The enemy just doesn't see you in the brush. The same happens after the mud bath at 11:40. There is enough openness for you to naturally disappear as you watch enemies flit about in search of you. And then? 13:30? You can just leave without killing everyone. It's a far cry from the meat grinder that was Uncharted 3. It's open, with enemies all around so that you're always at risk (of being spotted while unnoticed, of being under fire while engaged), but they don't file in in waves by the dozen while you wait to clear them out. Advancing feels more like the goal than killing does, even if there is plenty of killing.  This is a manicured, directed piece of gameplay, but it's not heavily cut or edited and does imply that this style if play will be possible. It feels more natural than Uncharted 3, which was very obviously built around stitched together set pieces. This one could still be, too, of course. Still, if you dig Drake's handsome quipping and the pulp fiction adventuring, which I mostly do, this trailer hints at a much better time than I had with Uncharted 3.

These were the best trailers of E3 2014

Jun 16 // Brett Makedonski
[embed]276289:54359:0[/embed] Dead Island 2 has followed in its predecessor's footsteps with a highly memorable trailer, albeit with a severely different tone. Many would argue that the caliber of Dead Island's cinematic trailer outshone the actual game. Only time will tell what the legacy of this one is. [embed]276647:54463:0[/embed] Cuphead took a lot of people by surprise when its trailer was showed on Monday morning. "What the hell is this, and why do I want it now?," many probably correctly thought. It's gorgeous, it's wacky, and it doesn't look like else out there. It's Cuphead. [embed]276284:54356:0[/embed] Maybe the most intriguing of all E3 trailers was the one for From Software's Bloodborne. It's dark and creepy, and because it's From Software, we can expect it's good stuff. While a fine trailer in its own right, it didn't do anything to let us know how Bloodborne plays. Luckily, Dale was around to do that for us. [embed]276260:54338:0[/embed] If this trailer is any indication, Far Cry 4 will thrive partially because of a strong and insanely evil villain. That was part of the charm of Far Cry 3, and it wouldn't be particularly surprising if Ubisoft went that route again. However, it probably would be particularly enjoyable. This trailer showed Pagan Min doing what he does best, and it made for fine entertainment. [embed]276341:54380:0[/embed] Nintendo had a few interesting things to show at its E3 Digital Event. One of the definite standouts was Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which was inspired by levels from Super Mario 3D World. That's right, an entire game based on those intermission-style sections. No running, no jumping, just puzzle-solving and collectible-collecting. And it looks truly wonderful. [embed]276310:54368:0[/embed] Sony capped off its press conference with the reveal of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Its accompanying trailer did exactly what trailers are supposed to do -- get people excited for the game. One more adventure, you say? Sure, we'll happily go along with you, Drake. [embed]276220:54318:0[/embed] Lara Croft had a rough time in Tomb Raider. It's not surprising that she needs some psychiatric care to work through her trauma. Conveniently for us, that directly translates to getting a glimpse at our next experience with her in Rise of the Tomb Raider. [embed]276229:54296:0[/embed] What can you say about this trailer for Dead Rising 3's DLC? It was Capcom having fun with things, and that alone is worthy of a mention. Oh yeah, and apparently the DLC was pretty good, too. [embed]276207:54293:0[/embed] Sunset Overdrive made good use of its time in the limelight. Its trailer managed to act as an FAQ of sorts, show off some gameplay, and even make fun of conventional game mechanics. It's hard to imagine someone watching this and not thinking that all of that bouncing and sliding around looks really fun. [embed]276261:54343:0[/embed] Valiant Hearts kind of went the other way with its E3 trailer. Rather than get the crowd all excited, it brought the room down. Armed with a puppy and a voiceover, Valiant Hearts made sure everyone knows that this one's going to be a real tear-jerker. [embed]276297:54362:0[/embed] The world's a big place. The trailer for Hello Games' No Man's Sky makes sure to point that out. Starting in a dinosaur-laden swampland, it's not long before it jettisons off into space. It really drives home that No Man's Sky is a game of infinite exploration and endless possibilities. [embed]276462:54426:0[/embed] We said that these trailers are in no particular order, but that was a half lie. The truth is, we saved the best for last -- Metal Gear Solid V. Anything said here won't do it justice, so just watch it yourself.
