Uncharted 3's 'historical inspiration' explained

Uncharted 3's 'historical inspiration' explained

In an ongoing video series on the PlayStation Blog, Naughty Dog has lifted the curtain on development of its recently released adventure Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.

The latest episode of the series focuses on how the developer utilizes "historical events as jumping off points" into Nathan Drake's escapades. What are the points featured in Naughty Dog's latest? "Sir Francis Drake’s circumnavigation of the globe" and "T.E. Lawrence’s research into the Crusades as a teenager." That Nathan sure knows how to party.

Uncharted 3 dev considering tweaking single player controls

For some, the changes made to the way you aim in Uncharted 3 make the game significantly less fun to play. Shacker Sinisterinfant commented that the new controls are "garbage," making it difficult to enjoy the game. Others, like SketchyFletchy, have had no problems and consider the complaints "entitled whining."

To explore the mixed reaction towards Uncharted 3's controls, developer Naughty Dog invited gamers to its heaadquarters to discuss the problem, and potentially work on a new solution.

Uncharted 3 dev defends changed controls

Uncharted 3 dev defends changed controls

Uncharted 3 released two days ago, and many fans are crying foul. In spite of critical acclaim, many dislike the changes made to the controls of the single player campaign. Complaints include increased input lag and a general lack of responsiveness--something that's not present in the multiplayer component, and in Uncharted 2.

"Look, the aiming in Uncharted 3 single player campaign is definitely broken; it’s not in our heads. It doesn’t work and it’s ruining the experience. I never had an issue in Uncharted 1 and 2. Almost all my kills in UC2 were headshots, now in UC3 it’s all air. I hate getting into a gun fight in this game, especially with the brain dead A.I," one commenter said.

Sony has promised a lot of DLC for Uncharted 3's multiplayer mode. In fact, the company is promising at least $45 worth of DLC (which can be procured at a discount via a Season Pass, of course). So what's the first expansion we can expect for the game? Skins, of course.

Uncharted 3 review

Uncharted 3 review

No other game has halted productivity at the office quite like Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Upon learning the game was idling on a debug PS3 in our demo room, a handful of employees jumped out of their seat to watch the game in action.

There's a reason for that. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception combines the best single-player campaign in the series, with refined competitive multiplayer, and a story-driven co-op mode that ties up some loose ends from the second game in the franchise. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is simply the best PS3-exclusive on the market and one of the finest adventure games ever made.

Uncharted 3 Facebook connectivity explained

Uncharted 3 Facebook connectivity explained

Naughty Dog experimented with Twitter for Uncharted 2, allowing gamers to share key stats automatically from the game to the social network. The company is experimenting with a new set of features for Uncharted 3, this time with Facebook.

If your PS3 is linked to Facebook, you'll be able to see when your Facebook friends log in for a multiplayer match. You'll also be able to share your cinema files directly on Facebook (and YouTube). However, the most interesting integration with Facebook comes through the game's treasure system.

Uncharted 3's launch trailer makes a big wave

To kick off its nationwide tour with AMC Theaters, Naughty Dog has released a brand new launch trailer for its upcoming Uncharted 3. Although the event focused largely on a competitive multiplayer tournament, attendees were just as excited to see new footage of the single player campaign.

While Uncharted 3's story is still a closely-guarded secret by Naughty Dog, the new trailer shows Drake on his quest to find the "Atlantis of the Sands," a journey that will have him and Sullivan go against "the occult treachery of a shadowy clandestine organization and its ruthless leader."

The hottest new trend in video games is DLC Season Passes. Rockstar started the trend with LA Noire, and Microsoft picked up the baton with Gears of War 3. Now, it's Sony's turn with Uncharted 3.

Naughty Dog said that there would be no single-player DLC for their latest adventure. However, that's not stopping them from planning at least seven (!) expansions for the multiplayer mode. If you want to get all of the add-ons, you can join the "Fortune Hunters Club" and score the DLC at a discount.

Uncharted 3 dev against single-player DLC, would rather make sequel

Uncharted 3 dev against single-player DLC, would rather make sequel

Like any blockbuster game, Uncharted 3 will inevitably get post-release downloadable content. Just don't expect any of it to extend the single player adventure. Why? "We'd rather build out another game than we would do episodic content," Naughty Dog's Justin Richmond said.

"We'd much rather be working on the next game, producing the game quickly and having people play another adventure."

Uncharted 3 multiplayer 'Buddy System' explained

Most of you probably remember the "Buddy System" as what your kindergarten teacher called it when she made you hold someone's hand on a field trip. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is borrowing the phrase for its multiplayer pairing system, which grants benefits like spawn locations and special medals. As the sandwich-powered multiplayer demo continues, Naughty Dog detailed how some of the Buddy features work.

Okay, you've seen Nathan Drake blow up a plane and crash land in a desert. So... what happens that? Apparently, things don't get much better for our hero. Sure, he's going to have to fight some well-armed henchmen. But the worst thing? He needs to get water.

Keep an eye out for some of Nathan's new moves in this Uncharted 3 gameplay clip, such as the enhanced melee combat, and aerial takedowns.
