Among Thieves

Ok, yeah, Uncharted 2 looks beautiful

I’ve only checked in here four times in the past 2 months. It’s not because I haven’t been doing things – quite the contrary! I’ve just found little time or motivation to write about what’s going on.

Well, now comes the lightning round! There are a handful of subjects I want to touch upon but I hate making those boring bulleted list blogs. So, instead, I’ll be spreading out all of the (not interesting) tidbits out into a couple of posts.

Alright, enough disclaimer text. This first quick check in is to briefly sum up the latest video game I played. Wow, I seriously have gone through something like 6 games this year, already. Bah, this 30-year old cares not for your judgements – I spend my time in the manner I wish! Uncharted 2 is – surprise – the sequel to Uncharted, a PS3 exclusive game I played back in December. Both games revolve around a character named Drake who, much like Indiana Jones, seems to find both lost treasure and danger at every turn in his life. I found the first game a little unbalanced (shooting was monotonous, game went for too long, and the twist in the story was just too far-fetched) but Uncharted 2 really corrected all of these mistakes. It’s a beautiful (best-looking PS3 game I’ve played thus far), fast-paced, taut, playable action movie. The voice acting is great, the length is manageable, and the development team really did a great job at not relying too much on any one gameplay mechanic. In fact, the only real gripe I have is that someone barely escapes falling down a large cliff about every hour in the game – so much so that it becomes comical rather than thrilling.
