Uncharted 2 On Xbox360 Would've Re-defined The Action Genre

Castlevania is set to debut this year and the game is looking incredible. Dave Cox is a great producer for Konami but it appears that there's a sign of doubt within the Lord Of Shadow release this year, not being able to fully compete with Uncharted 2's greatness may pose a threat to the expected success of Castlevania.

Will Castlevania get the franchise back up to speed or is the hype to much for Konami to handle?

This Vidicle Will Explain Many Things So Check It Out (PS3, Xbox 360)

Uncharted 2 already did redefine the action genre. Truly felt like a blockbuster movie experience for like 12 hours.
Misleading title like always, but actually a pretty good "vidicle".

"Uncharted 2 already did redefine the action genre"
really? explain us how

How many action games have you been playing that are nothing compared to what uncharted offer in the gameplay?

BLIND FIRE IS BLIND FIRE Key word BLIND in my opinion is just dumb to get help in blind fire. In real life blind fire is blind fire DAMMIT!


"Red Dead Redemption redefines the Open World (sandbox) genre"

Now you understand what is the meaning of redefines?

1.redefine - give a new or different definition to; "She redefined his duties"
define, delimit, delimitate, delineate, specify - determine the essential quality of
2.redefine - give a new or different definition of (a word)
define - give a definition for the meaning of a word; "Define `sadness'"

I do not particularly like HHG videos. I am an early eighty's rock kind of guy myself. I do however feel everyone bashes him quite a bit more then he deserves. If anyone actually watched the video instead of just seeing who posted it and commenting on the title, they would look like less of retards by those of us who did watch it.

I submit that most of you people have never even sat through more then 3 mins of a HHG video, and merely bash it because everyone else does.

This title should be enough to get people to stop approving HHG's stupid articles. Uncharted 2 barely has anything to do with the content.

as for the people saying there's a bias in the media with regards to reviews...i agree. but they aren't slanted in the direction everyone claims. here's the only HONEST review i've seen of Uncharted 2, and i've read and seen quite a few.

Silly gameAr  +   2004d ago
It's not really the fact that Dave Cox beleilves that Uncharted 2 and Castlevania have to compete against it's other, it's more about what he said about Uncharted not redefining the third person action genre because it is on a single console.

He uses Mario and Halo as examples of exclusives that have a huge fan base and did more for their genre even though those games were mostly exclusive to one console.

Pretty much he says that Dave Cox is trying to protect his investment by bringing the GOTY from last year to stir up controversy.
Nitrowolf2  +   2004d ago
then WTF start a article with a description making people thing that the 2 games are competing, really that where allot of hate is coming from, Titles and Descriptions they need to be worded allot better, because he really does make it seem like the 2 games are competing.

Why not have a description like idk talking about how Defining a genre doesn't need to be Multiplat with qoutes from David Cox, and such.

he never states 360,PC,handhelds or anything and yes i am aware of Castle status with the Platforms

I've noticed that HHG flip flops sides whenever a "blockbuster" game is about to be released (i.e. Splinter Cell: Conviction). Before this? God of War III - go look at all the pro PS3 shows he did followed by a brief encounter with FF13 and before that Uncharted 2.

I really do have to hand it to him though, the guy does what he loves to do, he's not afraid to show it. Though his content is sometimes redundant, and spoken in a grammar-less fashion, (speaking of grammar, i know) haha he does have the passion and commitment that a lot of people don't have.

For this, I respect him. I couldn't stand him when I first started coming to N4G and discovered him, but lately I've been "diggin' DEM vidicles"

Its just those article titles and where he gets them
This one is a bit lost, he said he got it from the dev and yet the dev states Multipl platforms rather then a specific platform, that is where HHG messed up on. Dev might have thought about 360, but he said it in a more profesional way (even though it is a dumb thing to say still) he said it without saying what else it needs to be on.
Dnied  +   2004d ago

And like I said he tends to be a bit biased towards the things he likes anyways (why not).. so the title thing is yeah, a bit aggressive towards 360 only

I think it's pretty awesome that he's doing it though, especially because a lot of the times when I see people that talk the way he does they're normally huge crackheads doing nothing for their own good.

Speaking in the April issue of PSM3, Cox said, "Visually Uncharted 2 is beautiful and it impresses me technically. But does Uncharted 2 redefine 3rd person action games? I don't think that it does."

While Cox enjoyed many aspects of the game, he felt that Uncharted 2's exclusivity to PlayStation means that it cannot be given such a big accolade, "Uncharted 2 is a great game and I enjoyed it immensely. The standouts are the story and the voice acting," he said.

"[But] Uncharted was a single format release. If any game is going to set a benchmark for a genre it would need to do so across multiple platforms."

if you toned down the graphics to an alan wake standard then it would work.but you droids accept graphics as a standard for how good a game is.

UC2 on xbox would sell 5 million easily in 6-12 months.likewise GOW3.but you guys would hate that too.because it would it expose you for the choosey bum fuks that the industry knows you are.thats why 3rd party devs dont develop soley for the ps3 would be suicide for the studio.

Maybe it's not such a great idea to judge completely by a title, then? Don't judge a book by it's cover, right? Fanboys routinely go into angry rages here when it's obvious they just saw a misleading title and emotionally reacted without investigating the source material. If HHG bothers you that much, why view it or even comment on it? A similar thing happened with the Ninja Theory thread when the guy who posted it used a misleading title that made it look like Tameem Antoniades was attacking the PS3 when in context it was clear he was talking about the tech of current HD consoles and only mentioned the PS3 because it was getting a 3D firmware update. It was immediately apparent who had ready the article and who just read a misleading title and rage replied.
Nitrowolf2  +   2004d ago
he should fix the desription before the video also he should have said that the title came from the dev not him becuase it didn't
AKS  +   2004d ago
He does at the very beginning of the video. Thus, it's amusingly obvious who has commented and haven't even watched the first few seconds of his video or learned about what points he was trying to make.
Aphe  +   2004d ago
Can anyone actually watch one of his videos without doing something else? I'm just curious because I keep trying to watch one of his 'vidicles' and watch it from start to finish and I end up opening another tab to look at something else or play Solitaire or whatever while he carries on in the background.

I have started many of his 'vidicles' and have yet to get to the end. I think he could make a decent show, but he doesn't really do any editing, it's just him giving his long (painfully long) opinion in 'vidicle' form for what seems like an eternity.

I'd prefer him to make his show text based, at least we could see how well his journalism would hold up then.
