w00t!  just scored a copy!

bah!  the battery in my controller is dead.  looks like I'll have to wait.

mine died RIGHT before a boss fight once. I think I got lucky. How the bloody hell does this thing charge anyways? I don't know if I'm missing something but it wont charge after i put my ps3 into stand by. I had to hook up to my computer and charge a bit.

The PS3 has to be on to charge a controller. I ended up buying an 'external' charger, there are several to choose from. Or you can charge it on your computer.

wtf...is this 1990? that's the most asinine thing ever.

How is that any different from the 360 controller with the rechargeable battery pack? You either have to cable it up with that 'charge and play' kit and the console has to be on, or you get an external charger (which is what I ended up doing for my 360).

If you turn off the 360 while the play-n-charge cable is plugged in it still charges the battery.

Hmmm, ok, didn't see any mention of that when I checked the MS site before posting. However, just found this little blurb on Amazon for the kit:

"Recharge while you play Don't miss a thing! Recharge while you play or when your Xbox 360 is in standby mode."

So that's good to know. I was a little bummed when I found the USB ports weren't powered when the PS3 is in standby mode, but I could understand that and the external charger works just fine for me.

I seem to remember it coming with a USB cable... kind of short but technically you could use that to 'charge and play'.  icon_wink

I think it was Andrew that said that he was a little turned off by casting Nathan as a thief.  That's funny, I had the exact same reaction. I thought that Drake was a fortune hunter or a tomb raider, for sure, but I never got the impression in the first game that he was ever involved in crime. I think it would have been better if they had made him turn down the job on principle at first, and then had the potential historical find be so big, so important, that he was willing, just this one time, to cross the line.

It's pretty vital to story and Nate's character development IMO.


Well, I'll reserve my final judgement for after I finish the game, but unless this turns out to be a prequel (and I think Sully already made some comment that indicated it wasn't) I will still say that a robbery went against Nate's characterization in the first game.

FWIW, the strategy guide notes that it's been "a couple of years" between these two adventures.

He obviously had a past relationship with Flynn but this was the first time meeting Chloe.

Nope.  Watch the beginning cutscenes again- Chloe walks up, Drake recognizes her, is about to say her name but then Chloe introduces herself, basically telling Drake to play it like they are strangers so Nate plays along while he tries to figure out what's going on (that's what the second scene in Chapter 1, with Chloe and Nate in the bedroom makes clear). They have a past relationship (Drake walked out on her) but Flynn doesn't know about it.  Watch the body language and expressions in that first scene- phenomenal job by Naughty Dog in making play differently once you know the truth.  

Yeah, I was about to say this. It's pretty clear he has a history with Chloe.

Ah... that makes much more sense now that I go back and watch it again. I guess I was assuming more time had passed between those first two cut-scenes and the 'walked out' part was in-between there somehow. D'oh.

And yes, huge kudos to ND for the body language and facial expressions here, phenomenal work.  thumbsup

In the first game, yes, probably.  But I think his relationship with Chloe and Flynn predate the first game by a fair amount.  My sense of Nate is that he was already starting to climb his way back up to the straight and narrow by the time the first game started. But he has backslid by a fair amount when the second game starts so when Chloe and Flynn show up he seems to kind of latch on to try and regain some of his former "glory".  He is like Dennis Haysbert's character in Heat- trying to do the right thing but then Robert DeNiro and his old crew show up and ask him to take part in another job and he gives it all up. 

So at the beginning of the game he has basically reverted to his personality a bit before the beginning of Uncharted 1. 

He obviously had a past relationship with Flynn but this was the first time meeting Chloe. And you're right in that the first game was strictly Nate the Treasure Hunting guy, but it seems he had a somewhat shady past that we didn't really know about. When the job is first presented to him, Flynn mentions that the museum has been robbed before and 'only one person managed to make it out alive' and he was referring to Nate. Plus there's the comments about the alarms not being there the last time he was there.

He initially turned down the job when he thought it was just a simple robbery for some collector nut job, but once the treasure aspect came up with Marco Polo, he was all over it.

Hey gang I bought the special move called (I think) Electric Slide, where you press X while running (360 version) and it's supposed to perform a move.  When I move and press X it just does a guitar attack...am I missing something?

I think it is Power Slide and to run you have to press down on the left stick and then press X while running.

Ah, I wasn't pressing down on the stick, I'll give that a shot...thanks man!

To do the Electric Slide, it's Right, Down, Right, Left, Down, Left, Down+Melee, Up+Melee, Right, then Rotate the stick 1/4 to the left.

We got ours at Kohl's of all places, they had a sale and then sent out coupons and gave another discount for putting in on their card... I think all in all it was something like 60% off.  icon_smile

I ordered the Collector's Edition from Amazon when they were available.  At the time I selected two-day shipping, but now I'm considering upgrading it so I can get it on release day.

If I just modify the shipping option, it won't do anything bizarre like try to cancel and re-submit the order for an out-of-stock item, will it?

No, it really shouldn't. You'll edit the order and there will be a button to change the 'Shipping Speed'. If you're worried about it, you should be able to call customer service and have them do it for you, I would think.

Does this play in 1080p for anyone? The box lists supported resolutions like this: 480p.720p.1080i.1080p (no clue what the use of red signifies) but it will only play in 720p on both of my HDMI cabled PS3s.  icon_confused

Edited to add: Found some posts on the net saying that deselecting 720p as a supported resolution in the System menu would allow it to run in 1080p... and it does. I guess that's fine since I'll just be playing this but if I don't re-enable it then 720p games will play in 480p from what I understand. Does anyone know why it picks 720p when my system supports 1080p just fine and if there's any way to make this automagic so I don't have to (possibly) change my display settings every time between games? icon_cry

Is my explanation at the top of the page confusing to people?  Or are people just not reading the thread first?  Not trying to be snide, if my communication is bad, then I want to fix it.

No problem. I probably skimmed the top post when I first got confused, but to me it would help to emphasize the fact that your initial counts from the old system will only show in the first comment with a +1 on your actual profile - and that your counts will increment 'properly' going forward from +1 when people use the new feedback system.

Yes, a very thin layer is all you need, anything more is counter-productive. And you don't need to cover every square micro-inch, you basically need to cover the actual chip area where it sits inside the shell. Plenty of instructional pages out there for specific cores.

And don't use a blade unless you absolutely have to, use a swab or cotton ball with the highest percentage rubbing alcohol that you can find so you don't scratch it. Make sure you don't touch either side afterwards, a big old greasy fingerprint can cause issues as well.  icon_razz

Back to the beginning of the level with me, and minus all my souls.   

I retire for the night at this point, with a smile on my face that I made the right decision to buy this game.   smile

Just curious, TiLT, but what price is it going for via digital download over there? (and where is 'there' anyway?) The Collector's Edition is going to be a pretty consistent $60-$65 over here in retail locations, and download sites are also in line with that.  As for regional restrictions, my guess is there has to be some sort of financial reason behind it.  I know distributors like Stardock and Valve would be more than happy to sell more copies, so it's not a choice on their end.

Of note, I also found a preorder through Best Buy ($64.99 for PC):
Quote
"three pieces of exclusive in-game content, including the Lucky Stone, which adds +1 to all stats, the Lion's Paw, which adds to armor, dodge and evade, and the Edge, a dagger that adds a lot to damage, melee crit and attack."

This struck me as odd, as all the other CE's have the following:
Quote
"THREE PIECES OF EXCLUSIVE IN-GAME CONTENT:
Bergen's Honor: A massive helmet made out of dragonbone (+2 to armor, +25 physical resistance, +6 to attack)
Grimoire of the Frozen Wastes: A special book that adds +3 to all attributes when read
Final Reason: A magical staff of immense power (adds to damage, spell power, and fire damage)"
... plus a vendor-specific bonus item or two.  Best Buy's listing looks as if it's replacing the standard three that come with the normal CE.
That one gets a serious wtf from me.  I'll have to do a bit more digging and see what's up.

Myself, I'm a little torn - I haven't picked up Elemental yet, so I was planning on using my coupon on that. 

I just tried putting another item into my cart on Impulse (haven't pulled the trigger yet on my pre-order) and it applied the 20% off to that item too.
NICE!!!!  Hmm - and Impulse does get you the Warden's Keep DLC for free ... even more tempting!
This is exactly why I am so confused.  I'm trying to figure out where I can get the game pre-ordered, get some bonus items for the pre-order, and get the game on time.  I like getting the map and such, but my concern is preordering from EBWorld or Amazon will result in me getting the game some week or two after release?  Impulse sounds like a good possibility.

A week or two? What makes you think that? Both have been known to have 'release day' shipping for titles (not this one, it seems, but still) and even without it you'd have it a day or two later, not a week or two. Unless we're talking about something like GoGamer's "dirt cheap" shipping which can take... awhile.

A combat review from someone at NeoGaf. I'm hoping this game has an easy mode, because it sounds fairly hardcore. I'd love to play the game, but I'm past my Ninja Gaiden days when I had hours to spend learning combat idiosyncrasies and replaying levels:

From what I understand it has a super easy mode feature.  Like basically just pressing the WIN button repeatedly. 

Indeed, it does.

Silly question perhaps but I'm just starting off and in what I guess is "1-1" and found a better shield than the one I'm currently carrying. However, I can't for the life of me see a way to equip the damn thing. How in the heck do you do that?  icon_confused
   
Hit Start, then arrow over one icon to the one that looks like a chestpiece and crossed swords. Click X on that and you'll see your equipement slots. You will probably see the first shield already equipped in one of the "left hand" boxes (there are two boxes for left hand and two for right hand on the upper row (bottom row is for armor), so you can swap between equipment sets). Click on the previous shield and it will bring up the items that can replace it. When you get to the new shield, you will be able to tell to the right if it is an improvement (blue) or downgrade (red). You may see a downgrade on a better item, but that just means you need a few more stat points to be able to properly wield it.
     
Welcome to the madness! smile

Get used to going to that screen. You will need to strip your armor in some locations to increase your run speed then put it back on again

Really? OK, I'll keep that in mind. Stupidly, I was sitting on the 'stats' screen and trying to manage the equip there... never made it over to the proper screen. D'oh.  retard Funny, but shortly after that I was wondering (based on the quantity of bloodstains) how so many people could have died early on in the first level. Picked up some fire bombs, ran up more stairs, got jumped by two something-or-others and was dead before I knew it. Worked my way back to *my* bloodstain, got my souls back, took about three steps and died again.  Roll Eyes

Silly question perhaps but I'm just starting off and in what I guess is "1-1" and found a better shield than the one I'm currently carrying. However, I can't for the life of me see a way to equip the damn thing. How in the heck do you do that?  icon_confused

I had the same (as noted, very annoying) issue, but putting it into 'Compatability mode' for this site fixed it for me. It's the box up top at the end of the address bar with what looks like a 'broken' page / piece of paper.

I don't think I ever... hang on a sec... no, plays fine, even at full screen. Make sure it's clean and all that rot, perhaps try getting out of full screen mode or copying it down to your hard-drive and running it from there?

Or 'Dangerous Waters'. Heck, didn't the old Falcon 4 manual come in a three-ring binder?  icon_eek

So, here's the question.  If I bought a wireless router (which I'm assuming comes with a hardware firewall) and stuck with the firewall that comes with vista, is that enough protection?  (obviously I'll have a virus scanner installed).

I would certainly think so, but I'm hardly an expert on the subject. I'd wait for someone more smarter to weigh in, like that Atomic Fireball kid.  icon_wink
