The Logitech Harmony Home Hub Extender can control smart plugs like this one, so you can turn on/off the NES as well.

Something about essentially pulling the cord to turn off and on systems doesn't sit well with me.

Do you kill 500+ people primarily by shooting from a third person perspective in any Zelda game?

That's more people than my Nathan Drake killed in my 18 hour playthru of Uncharted 4.


I'm not really understanding what point you are trying to make here? Tomb Raider is almost twice as long?

At heart they're both third person shooters and the critics have always preferred Uncharted, even Uncharted 3 which was the weakest in the series IMO due to an overload of annoying enemies. Fixing that issue and incorporating some of the mechanics from TLOU (another TPS that's better than Tomb Raider) is what made Uncharted 4 such a fun game to play.


Might as well throw Zelda into the comparison then because Tomb Raider shares as many game structure mechanics with Zelda as it does with Uncharted.

Shipwreck's enthusiasm for his keyboard and tablet stand make me think he'd really enjoy a Surface.


I wouldn't not enjoy a Surface, but I'm pretty tied into Apple's ecosystem so that's where all my content is.

Claiming you need to get to the Jeep to start Uncharted 4 is bizarre, even by Shipwreck's standards. The Scotland levels that come before it are already full on Uncharted.
I killed over 500 people in my first playthru on Moderate so that's less than the first three games, but still involved plenty of stealth, melee and shooting. The combat is just as good as the combat in the new Tomb Raider games but the story and characters are much better, which is why the Uncharted games review better.


I think the combat in Tomb Raider is far superior to what is in Uncharted. The bow alone is far more satisfying than any weapon Uncharted offers. I don't like comparing these games though as they aren't that similar outside of basic concepts. Tomb Raider is an open world game with RPG elements that encourage exploration. Uncharted is a linear thrill-ride with excellent story, characters, and production.
