I can't get enough of this game. The combat is fast and fun. The levels get huge and there's tons of nooks and crannies for the OCD explorer! 

Have you not finished Uncharted yet? What's going on?!

That's the insanity of it, I am playing DOOM instead?!!?  I can't stop!

This is a dark, dark day.

I think they put an extra dose of Nathan Fillion in the new model. They should just let him do a movie already. It would have to be an older Drake, but it would still be good.

And now that Castle is over, he's available again.

Unfortunately, I don't know if Hollywood sees him as a bankable star.



It's a video game movie, when do they ever worry about them being good or successful slywink

I finished the game up, just shy of 17 hours but only 52 treasures, and that was with scouring the areas pretty well. I doubt I will do a platinum try especially since there are those 70% accuracy and 6 hour speed run trophies.

As of right now cheats don't seem to impact trophies, so it's not as hard as it might seem. So you can turn on slow motion aiming, and infinite RPGs. The only thing I'm fairly certain you can't use is the autoaim stuff.

Interesting, although I guess I'm also not feeling the need to run through the game again right now. While with Uncharted 2 I immediately ran through the game again on hard and then crushing, this game felt more like an experience that was more than the sum of its parts where I don't feel the need to go back through so soon skipping all the cutscenes. In Uncharted 2 each encounter for the most part had a puzzle-like solution where you could stealth kill almost all of the enemies and the kill the last remaining one. U4 was a lot more open and allowed for a number of different routes to bypass all the soldiers, so it was rare that I thought to myself "I could have done that better."  Now by not mowing down guys I probably missed a lot of treasures, so there's the option of doing a "kill everything" run for that purpose. But I've got Doom now and it's super fun in a totally different way.

Overall I really liked the game a lot, and the encounters really brought those Uncharted 2 feelings back. You could see how The Last of Us influenced this game in the longer cutscenes and focus on the relationships. I think the game is going to get a lot of criticism for lack of action, and while I do think it could have used a few more free form stealth encounters, I don't see that as a big flaw. Not every game has to be the same, and they really nailed the interactive adventure movie feeling. The writing, story and performances were all excellent and I felt like I was experiencing something pretty special as far as what has been achieved through a video game.

I can't say enough for the chemistry between Emily Rose and Nolan North. They have been great in all of the games and all of their interactions were a joy to watch. Even little comments they make to each other when walking in the environment are sold perfectly.

I don't know exactly where this will end up on my list at the end of the year, but it is a really fine end to the Uncharted series and gives longtime fans a great sense of closure.

Spoiler for Hiden:
until Uncharted 5: Cassie's Big Adventure

If you are open to games that spend a bit more time on storytelling, I'd highly recommend it.

I'm happy with everything in the patch except the Incursion. That thing is terrible.

I haven't done it yet - what don't you like about it?

It's horde mode, imo, with nothing but gold enemies with a APC as the end boss.   Basically, Challenge level enemies..  It's definitely a gear gated

Gear gated with not fun tactics required to make it. You definitely can't do it without coordination, which makes PUGs difficult. But mostly its just not fun at all. Its one room, wave after wave of enemies, with nothing interesting happening.

After mission designs like the Lexington Event Center, Police Station, and Russian Consulate... this is a big let down.

I'm still playing the game a lot though.

Is that on hard or challenging difficulty?

Hard. I can't even begin to imagine it on Challenging. And this is with a 175 gear score, which while not great is well above the recommended minimum.

Well that's disappointing, the hard mode description says minimum 140 and doesn't even explicitly recommend a group.

Been playing it - it's fun but it feels a little...compact? It's gotten better as the game has progressed but it just feels a little more streamlined than I would like, and the story feels a bit rushed. It makes me want to go back and play those PS3 remasters, though.

Outstanding production values, and some great humor. I think it may feel slightly more compact because its based on the original game which was on hardware that couldn't support the large levels.

Yeah, I'll need to go back and play the older games to see if my opinion has been clouded by nostalgia. I've now been to some planets later in the game that definitely have more to do and are more open.

Popped in quickly this morning to see the changes. My initial gear score is 160 which is recommended (minimum 140) for hard mode incursion. Looks like they have set it up to be ok to solo on hard so that's cool. I didn't have the time to start it up so I'll have to check it out later.

Daily/Weeklies are pretty standard "kill x", "craft x" with the rewards varying among Phoenix Credits, Division Tech, DZ XP, etc.

Something that is different that what I originally read is the levels required to buy from DZ vendors. I went to the vendor at the very top of the map and the levels were still 30/50 instead of 20/40 like the patch notes had said. I don't know if a change was made at some point. This vendor was also only selling set piece items instead of gold stuff. I didn't check any of the other vendors, though.

Weapons from the Phoenix Credit vendor in the home base are much more expensive now, although the other stuff (armor/mods) seems to be the same price.

I also didn't get back in in time to upgrade all my materials, but that's actually not that bad because they have daily missions for upgrading materials.

the chests were all changed in recent patch.  The DZ 30 chests now have purples instead of blues and are worth it for crafting materials if nothing else.  The DZ Key chests have a chance for HE loot.

FWIW, the key chests don't require any rank, just a key.  DZ 50 is where the real rewards are though in the form of HE stuff and blueprints.  Wish you were with us Otter, we just hit 50.

I found 2 high end loot from key cheats since the patch

I knew you were a cheater...

I'm sure I've entered countless sweepstakes, lotteries and online contests in my life, but I can't recall winning anything bigger than a $2 scratch ticket. Well a few weeks ago I played 5 hours of Battlefield 4 on EVGA servers to enter one of their contests and won a top of the line i7 and a motherboard to go with it. It's no Powerball, but that approximately $600 worth of goods was a very nice surprise. Ever won anything good?

Outside of season pass I'm managing to not buy anything for a while. I think I'm good until April 12 with Ratchet & Clank (Dark Souls III probably for everyone else). I'm getting Witcher 3 knocked out and thinking maybe I can do Fallout 4 and that will clean up most of the big games from last year I abandoned partway through (besides Metal Gear). Will have to see how Quantum Break reviews.

So yeah, they really goofed with how fast you could get gear when the game launched. I'm not sure how they went through so many betas and didn't realize it. You can still run challenge mode over and over if you want, so if their intention was to slow down people until the first content drop they really haven't done so.  I really enjoy the combat in the game but I hope this doesn't just become another game to get tired of, like Destiny. Right now, with Dark Zone (which will probably become more and more dangerous over time) and 15 missions to replay it still at least feels fun (this is not me):

Look under the list of missions - there will be a tutorial mission you can highlight that will send you there but I think you can go in as soon as you find a door.

Found a really good pickup group this morning doing dailies. We did a couple of missions on challenging and a good dark zone run. It should be noted that they dropped a patch that greatly reduced the number of Phoenix credits that drop from bosses.
