God modding is the only way Nathan Drake can beat Altair

I don't care how much suave bravado and street smarts Nate possesses; there is no way he could ever hope to stand toe-to-toe with a freerunning Middle Eastern ninja. Note unless he bends the rules of reality to his favor lik...

Review: Uncharted: Fight for Fortune photo
Review: Uncharted: Fight for Fortune
by Chris Carter

I don't care if you're a professional tarot reader: no one could have predicted an Uncharted card game.

Out of all of the Sony franchises to choose from, I guess it saw fit to create a card game based around the idea of collecting treasure, and gunning down people in a head-to-head resource management style fashion. It could have ended terribly.

But you know what? As weird as it sounds on paper, it mostly works.

Uncharted 'fans' FUUUUURIOUS at card game spin-off

Uncharted: Fight for Fortune was only officially revealed this morning, but already the "fanbase" is up in arms and inconsolable at the idea that a spin-off game would dare to actually spin off from something. THE VERY IDEA! ...

Uncharted 3 is certainly a blast to play online, but there has always been that something missing. I am of course talking about having a pumpkin placed upon the head of Drake. Oh, the nights I have spent awake dream...

E3: PS All-Stars Battle Royale hands-on: Drake, Big Daddy photo
E3: PS All-Stars Battle Royale hands-on: Drake, Big Daddy
by Allistair Pinsof

With every new character unveil, I become more excited for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Now that the Internet has had a couple of weeks to fight over whether it's a soulless Super Smash Bros. clone (it isn't), Sony has made it easier to cheer for their whimsical four-player fighter with the addition of two new characters. Now the game has a character from what is arguably the PlayStation 3's flagship series and the first third-party character to be added to All-Stars' roster.

I didn't expect Big Daddy and Nathan Drake would fit well among the cast of mostly bright, cartoon-like characters, but I am wrong. So are you if you were thinking the same. They are easily my favorite characters in the game so far and they fit perfectly. Chibi Big Daddy for the win.
