Fortune Favors The Bold!
Fortune hunter Nathan Drake returns in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, a pulse- pounding third-person action-adventure/shooter created by award-winning developer Naughty Dog.
Down on his luck, Drake is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers he had sought to leave behind. When a mysterious artifact propels Drake on an expedition to find the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala, he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse against a fugitive war criminal whos after more than just the fabled riches of the lost city. Caught in a web of deception and plunged into an increasingly deadly pursuit that tests the limits of his endurance, Drake will be forced to risk everything but has his luck finally run out?

Finally! I just got this in an email from Sony. Tune in to the VGA's on December 14th on Spike at 9 p.m. EST for the exclusive first trailer!!!!
Here's the full webpage. There's a magazine with a 10-page story on it that I'm going to pick up. Check it!!

EDIT: Here's a game page/teaser on the PS website. http://www.us.playstation.com/ps3/games/un...amp;FTTR=U2_gdp

That's image 1. Go there and start cycling. I'm loving the change of scenery!!! Great fucking find.

Edit TO edit 3: Cycling through, I notice a brunette chick accompanying Drake in most of the shots.. No Elena in any. I bet he knocked her up on the boat-ride home and pushed her overboard.

I was watching a trailer for this game on The official Playstation youtube channel. This was in the "more info" section.

I hope they give us the sequal we are all expecting.

Awesome, loved the first game and this teaser trailer. Hope they keep it a single player game only, online will ruin it IMO.

See that is bullshit. If you don't like online modes then don't play them. Simple as that.

For real. Can you imagine the creative online modes they'd come up with? And more areas! I wouldn't mind online as long as they put as much effort into the campaign as they did in the first one.

Pretty much. The online shouldn't affect the SP at all in ANY way. I'm not expecting online modes but I would welcome them for sure.

If they tried to make Uncharted a shooter for online, that would suck terribly. Since it's a platforming game, they would have to utilize the platforming element. I guess a tomb raiding capture the flag would be pretty deace.

My fear was that they would just tack on the multiplayer aspect of the game, but if they do put as much effort into it as they would with the campaign (like you said) then It could be potentially fun.

If its tacked on and sucks don't play it. It still isn't going to affect the single player. Its not going to ruin anything.

Yeah, I guess that's what I'll do if the scenario plays out.

I wonder if Naughty Dog is gonna have a co-op campaign with the single player. That'd be pretty cool.
DiO
Only time will tell. I'm sure naughty dog will produce a quality game.

I hope its longer than the original...

Yeah, the game was on the shorter side but since the pacing was great I couldn't have seen the game be any longer without starting to drag.

Pretty much what I say. I thought it was a good-sized game.
bOnEs
i am sure the multiplayer IS a co-op campaign...

i just can't picture how they would pull off online deathmatch modes and such... if you remember, your perspective for shooting was quite strange... having the ability to shoot thru walls that would technically be in your way... but, if you could adjust the camera to look around the wall, drake could literally shoot right thru it... i could imagine the complaints from online deathmatch fanboys crying because they keep dying at the hands of some dude stuck in a wall laugh.gif...

unless naughty dog tweaks the shooting system a bit, which would be dumb because it works, i don't see how it's possible to have these modes... the shooting system is perfect the way it is... plus, drake's fortune never struck me as a muliplayer game... the only thing that made sense was co-op since drake had a sidekick thru probably half the game...

and i don't want naughty dog throwing in some damn mulitplayer modes just for the sake of appeasing the dumb masses (dumb asses) who think everything needs to be muliplayer these days... games like drake's fortune are meant to be single player platforms anyways... why does everything have to be multiplayer? and if so, just throw in a co-op mode and you'll still have a very successful game...
TheAnalogKid2112
Adam, you know that we were just suggesting/wondering about multiplayer right? They haven't confirmed or even mentioned it before. I definitely agree with you on the co-op part, even though it seems the game starts out with him alone. It would be sweet. Finally Elena would be USEFUL. biggrin.gif

Yes, I called you Adam. I don't like typing out the caps in your name.
bOnEs
how did you know mai name?!?!?!?!?!!?!? laugh.gif... kiddin...

yea i know, i just thought i'd point out why it wouldn't work IMO... but, co-op could definitely work... he might start alone in the video preview but, drake was treasure hunting with elana at the start of the previous game... i'd imagine he'd start the next game like that as well... plus, that video might be of a cutscene a couple hours into the game after most likely the pirates chasing drake sabotaged the train or something... or the scene of him wandering through the snow, that could be the opening sequence but, that doesn't necessarily mean that he's alone... who knows, elana might show up 2 minutes later in a helicopter to pick drake up...

plus, i've learned to never trust the game footage you see in previews... cut-off gloves anyone? biggrin.gif...

All true! It'd sure be nice. I highly predict the helicopter picking him up (probably cause of R2 laugh.gif ) but I guess we'll have to see.

I certainly don't think that. But I have to say again that naughty dog isn't going to be "throwing" anything in the game. Everything will be "well placed."

yea, i got faith in naughty dog too... they sure do know how to deliver entertaining products biggrin.gif...
