187w ago - Naughty Dog is one of my favorite game making companies of all time. Creating great game series like Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter and Uncharted, it's hard to compare them with any other game company with games like that in their arsenal.
Now Uncharted: Drakes fortune, is considered by many to be one of the best games ever released for the PlayStation 3; Often getting reviews in the 9.0's or 90's. Not only was it one of my favorite games, but also a favorite of the majority of people who reviewed it.
Fast forward to 2009, and you will see that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves not only beat its predecessor it completely destroyed it in nearly every single way. Don't get me wrong I love Uncharted: Drakes Fortune as if it's my long lost brother, but Uncharted 2 is like a soul mate... Okay that's a little over the top but you catch my drift, I love Uncharted 2 much more then the first.
In Uncharted 2 you will be dragged into a compelling storyline that will grip you until the very end with loads of great content and gameplay as you search for the lost city of Shambhala and it's treasure the Cintamani stone. You start off as the main character Nathan Drake (who you may recognize from the last game) who has a gun shot wound and is sitting in a train seat passed out.
188w ago - SCEA Marketing Manager Asad Qizilbash has shared a video of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves latest PS3 TV commercial today on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: I'm hoping that most of you have already bought your copy of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves and have been burning the midnight oil playing it. We'd love to hear your thoughts on the game.
Today's post is pretty cool: the reviews and write-ups on the game have been outstanding, so to support the launch of UNCHARTED 2, we are airing another 15-second TV commercial to go with our existing one.
You guys are the first to see this new commercial. Hope you enjoy!
189w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a video today unveiling some of the prizes from the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves San Francisco Cinema Event.
To quote: Last night, four Uncharted 2: Among Thieves cinema events simultaneously took place across the country, one of them on our very own home turf of San Francisco. It was a night packed full of fun, surprises, special guests and crazy excitement.
For starters, fans (100 of you, to be exact!) and media were greeted by UNCHARTED 2 on the big screen upon entering San Francisco's Landmark theater. From there, a brand new section of the game's single-player campaign (in the snowy Himalayas) was shown and introduced by Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig, who then shocked the crowd by announcing that everyone would be going home with a copy of the game... eight days early!
Needless to say, the place erupted. Shortly after, we caught up with Amy about the whole experience.
From there, a multiplayer tournament kicked off on a never-been-played map, with a Fortune Hunter Edition up for grabs to the winner. Emotions ran high (take that, people trying to watch the French indie flick next door!) and we discovered that many of you have definitely been practicing...
190w ago - Today Sony's Senior Vice President of Marketing & PlayStation Network Peter Dille has unveiled the finalized advert set to air on TV to promote Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for PS3.
The video (available below) is part of their ongoing "It Only Does Everything" PlayStation 3 campaign, and to quote:
"I mentioned that Kevin Butler won't just be focusing on the PS3's hardware superiority but would also be rolling out software specific advertisements. We're excited to give you a sneak peak at the first of these spots, showcasing UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves.
In this next installment in our campaign, Kevin fields a "Dear PlayStation" question from a conflicted boyfriend facing the dilemma of telling his girlfriend that UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves is not actually a movie, but in fact, a game. We hope you enjoy what a lot of people here voted as one of their favorite spots in the campaign.
We're only just getting warmed up for the holiday and still have a bunch more spots to unveil."
