No wonder Uncharted 3 was so average: Nolan North had broken ribs during filming


Another 'Did You Know'

Did You Know Gaming has another video in store for us, and this time it deals with the Uncharted series. One of the most interesting bits is definitely the fact that Nolan North broke two of his ribs before the filming of the mocap action sequences in Uncharted 3, which would partially explain why the game felt off. That, and the guy who played "Cutter" in the game left to go film The Hobbit, which explains why he basically broke his leg in Drake's Deception and isn't seen again.

I also completely forgot that the first game was unveiled in 2006, and I still haven't bought into Drake's "everyman appeal," especially after seeing how many people at Naughty Dog tried to sell him as the ultimate everyman.

I love little factoid productions like this, and it would be awesome to see a fully fledged TV show from this crew.
