Uncharted: Golden Abyss Preview

Jason goes hands-on with the first Uncharted title to launch on a portable platform.

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- game has a camera mode, looking at in-game environment in first person - semi augmented reality. Basically can look around in there by moving the system around.

- Nathan drake happened upon tiki-like statues - mayan origin

- You can rub the screen to take an impression of an object with charcoal. Demo had 4 things to sketch and arrange them together like puzzle pieces for a light exploration-based puzzle.

- lush jungle environment

- walk across rickety bridge, planks missing, one falls through, had to catch himself

- balance based stuff, when walking across a moss-covered log had to stay standing

- appears to be a full-fledged uncharted experience that will incorporate the various vita controls

That Dragon, Cancer Review

"That Dragon, Cancer," is a game about hope -- its presence, and its absence. While forged in the anticipation of triumph, the end result is a meditation on failure and loss that is pretty hard to take, and without a doubt breaks new ground for the interactive medium.

But while it takes on loss in a new way, it is also a commentary on games in general that is both surprising and profound. It is not without flaws, but the all-encompassing heart of it more than compensates for its failures.
