Wish this wasn't coming out right when the next semester starts but oh well. And so close to Yakuza Kiwami. What a great end to August.

August will be the best month of gaming this year so far (imo) It's packed with so many games that fit my preference.

Damn lots of salt around here.

Guys face it, there is a consensus around the web and GAF included that UC4 was the best game of 2016, we get it that you're still salty, but get over it ;)

Can't wait for TLL!

I've always wanted a Chloe game but never thought it would actually, really happen. Now here we are, my potential GOTY has gone gold. <3 Naughty Dog

TLOU is pretty good even though it has some of my dislikes it did it well still and has alot of gameplay more with good pacing than UC4 atleast which the series was once known for being a fun exciting Action Adventure game turned into a boring simulator

Atleast keep all those qualities to TLOU games exclusively don't put that shit in other games
I get it, although I really do like Uncharted 4, I completely agree with a lot of the pacing complaints and found the lack of combat encounters really disappointing, especially as when they do throw combat encounters at it was fantastic. But saying people are lying about liking it just means they won't take you serious.

Very very excited for this. First UC in HDR.
Uncharted 4 runs in HDR and it's glorious.

Unless you are saying it will be the first UC that you will play in HDR?

Either way you should go back and play UC4 in HDR.

I have my fingers and toes crossed for a Young Sully trilogy.

Game 1: His first serious foray into treasure hunting.
Game 2: Set some years later, at some point intersecting with the flashback in Uncharted 3.
Game 3: His first adventure with an adult Drake.

I never said people were lying just saying people are not being fully truthful because they don't want to speak any ill of their favourite company and that they can do no wrong and that their real opinion is.. just nvm thread got derailed enough already for my honest opinions and getting attacked just because im not a yes man..

3/4 of it is climbing, slow walking talking and cutscenes with bad pacing becoming boring and slow while 1/4 of it is actual gameplay just like UC4 i bet

I'll just watch it off Youtube this time not missing much this way
Yep ever since the excellent and fun UC2 i can replay over and over then it went downhill with UC4 being my least favourite so boring this isn't the fun Indiana jones like action adventure game previous Uncharted was trying to be a poor TLOU imitation which the Uncharted series is not known for i don't ever see myself replaying this except to look at pretty graphics
Maybe because i used to love the previous Uncharted/Naughty Dogs games but ND's newer 'games' becoming worse and more like interactive movies with hardly any decent gameplay and no more fun in their games
I honestly don't know why anybody would bother coming into a thread and keep posting about an expansion to a game they hated.

The excerpt has been edited to feature a photo of a cosplayer as a joke. The actual in-game painting is this:



...which, amusingly enough, was originally a cropped version of this piece of Black Flag concept art:

Ahhhhhhh yes. I remember that whole kerfuffle.

Uncharted 4 runs in HDR and it's glorious.

Unless you are saying it will be the first UC that you will play in HDR?

Either way you should go back and play UC4 in HDR.
Yeah, sorry, poorly worded. I picked up a C7 in June so my first UC in HDR.

And yes, I probably should go back and play UC again. My goty last year. And Horizon looks incredible, so i'd assume much the same for UC. I thought parts of UC4 looked breathtaking in SDR, so I can only imagine...

So you think people don't really like as much as they say they do? Or they need an intervention?

Now all hands on deck for TLOU2 :)

Thanks for reminding me to order this. I actually figured it was time to finally round out my PS4 library, so I went ahead and added around half a dozen other titles.

I probably said this when I talked a bout UC4 last year, but I'm really glad Nate is getting some time off (hopefully, he'll stay out of the treasure hunting game for good, this time). It should be interesting to see if and how some of the previously supporting cast will be set up to take over the lead.

The HDR implementation is not quite as great as Horizon, and it runs at a lower res (1440p) but it's still a hefty upgrade from the 1080p/SDR presentation (I'm assuming since it was in SDR, you also played on a 1080p TV).

So i can only come to this thread and only speak positively about the games?

I never said anything about being allowed, I just don't know why you would bother. Most people here would define this as shit-posting, which doesn't tend to go down well.

Yep, so we can say July/August is around the time when the bulk of the team switched to TLoU 2. And now they probably have a small team working on a new IP.

Since they announced that this was going standalone and getting expanded on, I've been more excited than I originally expected. I think generally, "side projects" get more freedom than a mainline title might if the right people are in the room, and this could end up getting the best of both worlds.

Halo ODST went through that, and they managed some of the best (and most interesting) storytelling of that whole series. That sort of potential built on the Uncharted 4 framework has my attention.

Your opinion is that people can't criticize Naughty Dog, which is untrue and a stupid thing to say. Let alone the fact that you haven't even played the game. Shit posting extraordinaire.

I said that because im certain it will be like UC4 and i said what parts would be similar and i don't like the way ND is going with their games that's it
How can you be certain when you haven't even played it? I wish I had this power. Different directors too. Again, shit post extraordinaire.

it's too bad this comes out in the same month as yakuza kiwami, i am more excited for the latter
You've got a week to play this before Yakuza. That's my plan at least.

You'll also get a free copy of Jak & Daxter if you pre-order.

You're speaking my language! That could be a fantastic trilogy. I'd be down for a young Sully doing his thing in the early 1970s.

"Victor Sullivan was born somewhere in 1951, however very little is known about his early life other than, as he stated in Uncharted 3, that he was raised by a lousy father and thus experienced a lousy childhood, and ,as a result, never developed a desire to raise any children of his own. As a young adult, Victor served in the United States Navy for several years, where he received combat-training as well as insightful knowledge regarding navigation of the ocean; however he was later dishonorably discharged for running several illegal scams."

this is GAF, if your opinion is different than the majority, they will turn against you, especially if that game was a Sony exclusive

sometimes when i post my opinion about a certain game, they call me a troll because my opinion is different than theirs, or they say my post is stupid or a joke

for the record, i agree 100% with you, ND should never have mixed TLOU and Uncharted series

Neither of us know the structure of Uncharted: TLL.

There's a difference between posting an opinion as an opinion and an opinion as a fact. You write in extremes, has anybody told you that?

I want to take a different approach than what I usually see how people respond to a post like this.

It's obvious this thread was going to attract people who are excited for this game to come out next month. You knowing that, So why shit post? Are you looking for attention? Are you looking for other posters to give you a online high five because they agree with you? Huh.

I came into this thread expecting hype and good feels but instead find that Gear shat up the place. Man... Of course you can say your opinions, but there's a difference between saying opinions and shitposting.

Are you aware of how stupid that sounds? It almost feels like it angers you that there's people who really enjoy ND games.

I love ND games, and I really enjoy the downtime their games offer, particularly because I also enjoy the banter a lot. I thought Uncharted 4 was amazing from top to bottom. They did went a bit overboard with the climbing, but I didn't mind at all. That doesn't make the game a walking/climbing simulator for me (or many) at all, or that I'm not being fully truthful (really?).

Also, ND games get lot of shit here, not only from those like you who are more concerned about the people who enjoy their games, but from those who simply don't agree with their design philosophy. In fact, ND games (particularly Uncharted) have a VERY vocal group of people here who dislike them for many reasonable and/or dumb reasons.

What Gear was doing wasn't criticizing it was shit posting.

Like Equal said, Gear posts as if what he says is true and everyone else is wrong.
