Finally hitting the backlog and currently playing Uncharted collection. Hard not to think as you play, just how many people Nathan Drake has killed in all his adventures.


I always think, how does he jump from those heights and grab a ledge without his arms ripping off?

I Was always disappointed in the flashback sequences for Uncharted 3 that there was no flashback to Nathan Drake killing someone for the first time. He does it so often that I was hoping there would be a scene where he horribly murders someone merely for cutting him in front of a line for a bathroom as a horrified (or impressed?) Sully looks on. Then again Uncharted 3 was a total disappointment compared to the first two.

It gave me a better straight forward storyline as opposed to giving me forgettable villains that keep eluding to something that never gets a pay off in the end. Plus shooting didn't feel as sluggish and there weren't just three puzzles in the entire game.

 

That and it's easy to forgive it for being the first game in the series, while 3 reaches no where near the heights of the second game and gave no memorable characters for me. Also to this day I don't know who the Fuck that bald guy was in the beginning of the game or what he added to the story being he's there then never spoken of again.

I like that when you get somewhere there's always always always bad guys already there.  It's like shit, these guys are really good at finding these treasure spots, if it wasn't for Drake's rage to kill everyone they'd probably become some pretty accomplished treasure hunters.

The videos are nice man but I hope you don't mind a little bit of constructive criticism. The "huh" every couple of seconds makes it really hard to watch. Practice not saying huh and taking a pause instead. I do a lot of public speaking for a living.

I'm still early in the game but it hasn't blown me away or anything. Kinda dull so far, hope it picks up.

Has it gotten any better?  Just reserved a copy at Redbox with a free rental code.  Disappointed there is no co-op.

Nah, Drake became callous after years of playing only Doom and the original Mortal Kombat. After that his soul turned murderous. 

 

That's also why he sucks at playing Crash Bandicoot.

I thought I was dumb when they did it in tomb Raider, like she kills for the 1st time then the rest of the day she kills 700 more people, and even when she mows down like 6 people in a second then she doesn't pause to c sides her actions but she immediately moves on and looks for ammo or whatever.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

Yeah after that first kill in the Tomb Raider reboot (which really seemed to upset her) she just seemed to get her bearings, shrug it off, and proceed on a murderous rampage without even flinching. By the sequel she didn't seem to have any issue sticking a bow into someone's skull. No issue whatsoever.
I enjoy hoarding acorns, running up trees, and playing in traffic.

Now I wish we got a flashback of a young Nathan uppercutting a man 30 feet into the air and landing on subway tracks before getting run over. Followed by Nathan Drake happily putting on a pair of sunglasses in celebration.

I Enjoyed it because it gave it some weight to her actions and in all honesty, it's a video game. I Don't need her going "Jesus Christ! Did I shoot an arrow through that guy's skull and light that guy on fire?!? Holy ass crackers!" It's video game logic and pacing, it's same reason a girl who is skin and bones is incredibly proficient enough to master and carry a dozen weapons with little sleep and medical attention. Meaning it has to move forward and in the end I can accept the developers saying "you've killed the Fuck out of that guy and we know you're scared...moving on." Plus the combat was fantastic.

 

I Think it could've done better in Uncharted 3 if there was a flashback of Sully tying some guy up with a cigar in his mouth and telling Nathan "first thing about treasure hunting kid. You have to kill a ridiculous amount of face less goons!" Hands Nathan a butter knife and tells him to go to town. We cut out from the flashback and zoom out on Nathan's face where we see how dead eyed he is from murdering so many from now until the third game.

Maybe it's because I've only played the first Uncharted so far, but is there something unique about Drake where he should be criticized about killing so many bad guys when pretty much all game heroes are in the same boat? How many faceless goons have the contra guys shot up throughout their series? Or random guards that have been run through by Ezio, Connor, Edward and so forth in AC?  Heck, how many defenseless goombas has Mario stomped to death?

I think the tomb raider discussion is more about how she seems so distraught for killing a deer to survive and how quickly the game turns into a shoot them up. Good ole Drake or the Contra guys never have an emotional dilemma like that to work through as part of the story.

Tastes like chicken.

I Think because Nathan Drake actually shows signs of humanity and emotion compared to other video game characters. Meaning he can be funny and charming while getting seriously injured after a physical altercation (before miraculously healing immediately once a gun fight breaks out, but we'll ignore that for now). So it seems all the more out of character or odd that he can so numbly kill people while sometimes cracking jokes. It's hard to compare any of those other characters to Nathan Drake because all their professions are based on legit murdering hordes of people. Nathan Drake is a treasure hunter, but dear God his kill rate is easily in the triple digits.

Bard's Tale is out on PS4 and Vita now for $9.99. The Vita page lists the combined size of both versions, which would imply that it's cross-buy title. However, neither of the pages nor any website with info about the game mentions that it has cross-buy. If someone buys it today, can you say if it does come with both versions or not?

Purchased it off the vita page yesterday and both it and the PS4 version were added to my download list.

 

Does it have the original trilogy included like some other versions do?

Doesn't look like it unless it unlocks after beating the game or something. It probably makes more sense for them to include it as a pack-in with Bard's Tale IV when it is released.

No.  It can be any weekend of the month EXCEPT in November and December.   November is firmly locked to Thanksgiving Day and December is typically Christmas Eve, though last year it was the day before Christmas Eve.   Also in February it tends to hit on the weekend closest to Valentines Day.   Beyond that, anything can happen.  Also flash sales typically don't start until later in the day unlike regular weekly sales.  So it may be another two hours before we know anything.  While August Flash Sales typically hit on the 3rd Friday, this year has been all over the place and there's no guarantee it'll be today.
