I didn't like Uncharted 2, and here's why.
I have a PS3 and not many games for it. I heard Uncharted 2 had pretty good critical reception, so I figured "if a lot of other people like it, maybe I will like it too!". I ended up getting Uncharted 2, and I got really bored of it.
First off, I never really found the Indiana Jones movies that entertaining. I mean, the concept of them is pretty entertaining but I don't like the actual movies very much. This game is sort of like Indiana Jones. Well, it's also mixed with National Treasure (a movie I like), but doesn't have that same heart warming Nick Cage feel.
This game is said to be like Tomb Raider. I wouldn't necessarily know since I've never played a Tomb Raider for more than 10 minutes, but Nathan is far less attractive to me than Lara.
However, the hot girl of this game, Chloe Frazer, is super hot. I mean, damn. I don't think I've ever found a video game character more appealing. And that voice too. And that British accent. And that body. And that attitude. Mmm.
Anyways, after "playing with the sixaxis function", the gameplay comes in. It's a hide-behind-coverfire-throw-grenades-or-melee-them kind of game with "platforming". The reason platforming is in quotes is that it's not true platforming. True platforming needs timing, precision, caution, and fluidity. Uncharted 2 has choose-a-direction+jump and Drake does everything by himself. The only real challenge with the platforming is figuring out which crumbled rock you can and can't jump on, but if you spin the analog and mash jump, he'll find it for you.
After long platforming segments, you get to the combat. The combat is almost like WW1 trench warfare. You just sit there and wait and shoot millions of bad guys. There are just so many guys! It's not like the game even promotes stealthiness either.
So you do an hour of mind numbing combat and half an hour of fake platforming, and it repeats.
However, the graphics, voice acting, and presentation for this game are really great. It really does feel like a movie, and some of the gameplay parts are things you'd see in an intense action movie. I'm not saying this game was done poorly, just that I simply don't like it.

Second Ultra for each character finally confirmed!
A scan from the newest issue of Famitsu Magazine shows 2nd Ultra's, as well as some new costumes.
For a bigger image, click here:
Thanks go to El_Twelve over at the Shoryuken forums for a bit of a translation on some of these. As the rest of the scan gets translated I will update here. This is what we have so far:
Ryu's Ultra - Metsu Shoryuken - Basically describes it as a Shin Shoryuken with nastier looking effects.
Viper - Burning Dance - Activates in the air, kicks the opponent into the air and finishes with an electric cross chop.
Cammy - Cammy Quick Combination - It's a counter move, when opponent attacks, you'll counter with a submission hold combo (which probably involves Cammy rubbing her body all over her opponent...)
Fuerte - El Fuerte Ultra Spark - A close range grab, basically Propeller Tortilla the opponent into the air for a "finish hold" which could be any wrestling move. Can't make it out from the picture.
Something about rival characters appearing in arcade mode, even for new characters, and they'll all have cutscenes. Cody's rival is Guy.
New costumes for every character. Also says something about being "able to equip things as soon as you get it", but the scan is too blurry for me to make it out. Japanese being so contextual a language, I don't want to read too far into it.

The oft-delayed title gets a new target
Watch the "Farting Vigilante" trailer!
South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been delayed several times already and had recently been listed as TBA 2017. Well, now we have the announcement, the game will release on October 17, 2017 (we hope it's for real this time).
Some info on the characters and game mechanics to Konami's upcoming Third-Person Shooter.
Neverdead, a game where you play as a Demon Hunter who is seemingly immortal hasn't had much info in a while, till now. You play as the main Demon Hunter Byrce. A long with shooting from third-person, you can also use your limbs as weapons. Bryce can get blown to shit and stlll function in some ways but it is game over when all you have left is your head. Not sure how, but you can also use stuff in the enviroment as weapons, like pillars and walls. One fun-tool to being immortal is covering Bryce in flames as a physical attack and also shoots fire bullets. Now check out the main cast:
An immortal demon hunter who is employed by NADA, a group that covers up recent demon attacks that have afflicted the city. He spends his days killing off demons to collect beer money
An investigator with NADA. She overseas demon hunters, but does not appear to be too fond of being in charge of Bryce.
Like Bryce, demon hunter Alex has the Evil Eye, which is a sign of immortality. However, it is rumored that he is not fully immortal.
A charismatic idol who's half Indian and half American. She meets Bryce following a certain incident
Cool cast, the Half-Indian idol is a bit random. Alex is interesting, I wonder what the technichal difference is between him and Bryce. Hope some character videos show up soon. Does this seem like a fun game? Heres the 2010 video preview in-case you missed it.

Devs of SSFIV tell us what balance changes have occurred for Cammy, Fei Long, Sakura, Rose, Gen and Dan!
Hello everyone! This is Tsukamoto.
I got to go with producer Ono to an event in Hawaii! Sorry I got to kick back in a nice warm country. Even though the nice wide beach was right before me, with the pre-sale presentation overseas I didn't get to go... No, the most important thing is that everyone knows more about Super Street Fighter IV, so forget the beach, we gave it our all for SSFIV promos!
This week, together with the battle planner we'll be talking about the adjustments to Cammy, Fei Long, Sakura, Rose, Gen, and Dan!
Well then, first off tell us about the adjustments to Cammy.
A new video from NuaghtyDog shows off a new character, Katherine Marlowe. She's old as hell and it shows.
Even the bullshit is looking pretty sweet in the new Uncharted 3. What did you expect? But Uncharted 2 is my favorite game of ALL TIME on the PS3. So I'm super stoked for this new game. Stay focused on what was good in Uncharted 2 and please down reh-tard up the game and spend time on a mulitplayer on very few Jimmys care about.
Introducing Katherine Marlowe - UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception
Get your first look at Katherine Marlowe, the antagonist of UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception in the first ever presentation of a cutscene from Uncharted 3!
UNCOVER THE TRUTH
11 - 1 - 11
Developed by Naughty Dog, UNCHARTED 3 is the next game in the critically acclaimed UNCHARTED series, exclusively for the PS3 system.

It's here, another dose of Skyrim DLC for you Jimmys to get your hands on.
Centered around making you a domesticated hero of Skyrim, the Heartfire DLC adds the ability to purchase land, build a home, raise children, and other nonsense. You can even build gardens and fish while some lady takes care of it all as you go off killing dragons.
This doesn't seem like much fun to me considering how awesome Skyrim is. If you dig it though it's out now for $5.
Are you interested in this? If so tell us about it in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
