Anything Drake can do Lara can do better!
When it was announced that Tomb Raider was getting the reboot treatment a few years ago, plenty of people – yours truly included – made it clear that Lara should pay close attention to that other tomb raiding franchise headlined by Nolan North – errr - Nathan Drake. The point is many people looked at Uncharted as Tomb Raider for the current generation. The guys at Crystal Dynamics had their work cut out for them if they didn’t want to be square in the middle of Naughty Dogs giant shadow.
PlayStation 3 owners can look forward to the comprehensive collection of Insomniac's mainline Resistance games, as well as a complete edition of Uncharted 3.
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and Resistance 3 were both released last holiday season to critical acclaim and positive reviews. If you happened to have missed them, Sony will be sweetening the deal if you're in the market for a purchase. An Amazon listing has revealed a collection of the three PS3 Resistance games, which comes alongside an official Sony announcement of a Game of the Year edition of Uncharted 3.
The new content comes on March 13.
Fortune Hunter's Club members get another pack of free DLC this week in the form of Shade Survival Mode. While previously announced, the exact release date was unknown. Though free for Fortune Hunter's Club members, the DLC will run everyone else $6.
Vita-specific controls in an Uncharted game are a bad idea.
Uncharted: Golden Abyss marks the first entry in the critically acclaimed series to have not been developed by Naughty Dog. But Sony's Bend Studio has done a fairly good job of carrying the torch to their new handheld system. The bigger problem with Golden Abyss is that it takes every available opportunity to shoehorn in Vita-specific controls, and more importantly, the tale that it tells fails to grab your attention until roughly halfway through.
Ahead of beginning work on the upcoming survival game, Naughty Dog strongly considered bringing back Jak & Daxter.
Naughty Dog, as we all now know, has recently divided its studio into two distinct teams, each working on their own individual titles. The split and subsequent augmentation was done to accommodate future growth for the Uncharted developer. The first game taken on by this new team is The Last of Us, which was officially unveiled at last year's VGAs. Ahead of making the decision to start work on this new title, Naughty Dog told Game Informer that they strongly considered bringing back the fan-favorite Jak & Daxter series.
