Naughty Dog have revealed details for the title update that is to release today for their acclaimed game, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
woot can now use Hero Skins on arena :D only good thing this update has :P imo anyway
Yeah...that's cool...but I am really liking the implementation of a new spawn system. Tired of having people spawn right behind me (especially when I am on a good run). So frustrating. Love this game though.
I've wanted to use skins in the coop for a while now... much welcome inclusion.
cant wait for the new dlc maps and seige mode. seen the footage of it on gametrailers, looks hell-a-fun... yes i said it, hell-a-fun.
just updated mine.
Great. Skins can now be used......woop
Agreed it will be awesome!
Updating a masterpiece? Naughty Dog is really Naughty Gods.
Multiplayer is far from a masterpiece. They screwed the community by screwing with the base damage of players. Now it's COD-friendly and nobody climbs crap. They need to give us back the old health instead of favoring these cry baby COD players that whine about not getting easy kills. Naughty Dog is great at Single Player, but they are out of their expertise with MP fixes and listening to the community. They should have just made it a playlist, it's such a simple fix. Good to see new spawn system though. I didn't really notice spawn issues but more experienced players apparently did.
Alpha, 1.04 was months ago. Quit your crying. ND has updated THEIR game with features that THEY deem fit. When YOU make a game, I am sure YOU can have whatever kind of bullet sponge crap you like. Multiplayer is still fun. I would say after tomorrows DLC with 3 new maps and a new game mode the Multiplayer mode is better than ever. You guys crying daily about changes made to a game must be new to multiplayer games. Counter Strike has changed soooo much over the years, WoW has changed constantly... Diablo 2 is forever changing with a new recent patch to mix it up some more. That is how devs keep the people playing, by changing things and keeping it fresh. The most popular MP games ever are so different from the day it released... Its normal. What I don't find normal is people obsessing over it all over the internet. 60k people a day disagree with you.
As amazing as the single player is, Naughty Dog really need to get the multiplayer reeled in.... it actually started off really good and each progressive patch has made it worse. They started with a great multiplayer and now it's just a decent multiplayer, they should really reset a lot of it back to default.
Alpha-Male22...agreed, I gave up on this game after the health update. I loved this game but then they made it "more accessible", which translated means we made it easier for people that suck. It's nice that they are still supporting this game but I just couldn't play it anymore after they changed the core mechanics. Pennywise...it was 1.05, and there is a difference between updating a game and changing how it plays.
I have to agree with Alpha. 1.05 ruined my favorite online game. Now it's a campfest where people are afraid to traverse the level. The game was practically perfect, all they had to do was increase the grenade toss time... but they casualized it to death. Very sad.
So just because more time has passed it invalidates my argument? Quit crying about the Holocaust, it happened years ago. Does that seem logical? "That is how devs keep the people playing, by changing things and keeping it fresh." Really? They change the ENTIRE core gameplay mechanic thereby changing how the game is played? Sorry, but it's one thing to change the gameplay and another to address issues. By your logic they can make the game One hit kills and it will be okay for you just because: a) enough time will eventually pass b) Games are always changed to keep things fresh c) It's not my game and I should make a game if I want a proper game done Bravo, nice arguments Pennywise. The new damage system brought forth many changes and completely changed the core play, and even made guns unbalanced. More people camp. Nobody traverses the gameplay or uses platforming elements because it's too easy to die. It's COD friendly. You don't have to defend it JUST because It's Uncharted 2. Seems like your more upset I'm criticizing "a masterpiece" than you are of actually coming to terms with what they did. Sorry, but having a game play one way and then screwing the fans by appealing to a more casual crowd is nonsense. They should have stuck to their formula. How would you like it if Guerilla Games made Killzone twitchy? Well, by your logic above, it's not your game so I guess you can't complain about it. It's silly for you to think their decision was fine considering they could have easily added a Crushing playlist for anybody wanting an easier killing experience as opposed to changing the whole formula. Anyways, I'm going to hop on UC2 to play later today: Time Reaper and BeaArthur, hit me up if interested. I feel like Plundering.
What irks me more is, they HAD a hardcore mode as an option during their testing... why not just give it back? I really miss the classic UC2. I feel like currently, I have nothing to play online except casual shooters. That annoys the hell out of me, as UC2 was my go to game for something different and fun.
The Time Reaper...well said I feel the same way. I don't even think they needed to adjust the grenades. It was just about perfect and for some reason Naughty Dog thought it needed to change. Shame. You are also right about the casual shooters. Every shooter is similar and U2 was different and that is part of what made it special.
I stopped playing after they changed the health too. It really didn't make sense for them to do that when they could have just made it a different mode.
Wait a second, you guys are making Uc2 out to be like it was a hardcore shooter or something. It was always one of the most accessible mp available and never was a hardcore game. You want a less casual shooter play Mag or wait for socom 4. I am sure enough people complained about the game for them to change it and not everyone can be happy with it. It's life so let's stop complaining and just live with it. If it's that bad to you then there are plenty of other games to play. Personally I haven't played the mp since I bought Mag but this weekend I will get back into it for a while.
Alpha, I can't even read your response. I stopped when you compared the Holocaust to MP game updates... Some people need to relax... especially long winded people. NYC hit me up when you get the DLC, we will play some siege.
I have to disagree, I like the update for health. I started playing again online after this update. Before it, your character was a bullet sponge. And the first guy to get the M4 was getting a huge advantage. While I agree that it's maybe a little bit too easy to kill someone now (especially when playing plunder), if you give me a choice, I would choose the new health bar.
All i wanted was was the grenades to be less noob friendly. ONLY thing I ever disliked about UC online was the grenade drop just before death, and it hasn't changed :( otherwise perfect, they could have left it all but that.
Good, hide behind ignorance when you can't make a response. It's saddening that you shut out my comment under the excuse that you don't like to read long comments. Narrow-minded reasoning at its best. I didn't compare the holocaust to gaming, I compared it to your ridiculous comment that it was okay just because time had passed. But since you are too childish to read the post you couldn't see that. I have no problem with the game, it's you that is getting upset over me criticizing it. Guess you'd rather have me sit here telling you how much of a masterpiece it is. They should have made it a playlist, it was the best approach, case closed.
No seriously, how can you compare game updates to the Holocaust? Did you even read that after you typed it? You talk about "making a good argument," so where is yours?
Have we learned nothing from Resistance 2? Never listen to the community.
But then if they don't listen then people will be angry and say the dev don't listen. I don't fault ND at all. They were only listening to what the community wanted. I fault people like Alpha that complain after while not making their voice heard on the fourms in the first place. If more people made know that they don't like the new health bar then perhaps ND wouldn't have changed it.
Where's my argument? Did you read the rest of what I wrote? Please tell me what was so wrong about my comment. I was comparing it to what Pennywise said, who stealthily dodged my points by crying about the Holocaust analogy. The keyword is ANALOGY meaning I used Penny's excuse to illustrate what was wrong with what he said. Pennywise ran away and blamed the Holocaust reference. He doesn't like hearing something bad said about his precious UC2 and would rather make excuses for ND. @crmb Actually, many people WERE against the lowered health. The community stopped complaining and other issues were brought up yet ND went back to it and decided to change the WHOLE game. They could have easily added a playlist for lowered health since the community had voiced their opinion on both sides. How'd you like it if Hardcore mode was the only mode in CoD? Or if Killzone 2 had twitch movement? So don't blame me for it :/
As I said before Alpha - SIXTY THOUSAND PEOPLE A DAY disagree with you. I don't care what you criticize... Just make it a valid argument besides: "wah, wah, wah, I am not a bullet sponge, wah, wah, wah, You changed what I am used to... this is comparable to the holocaust." Alpha, I don't know who is giving you bubbles(I have a good idea)... but shame on them. @Jack below: There are a lot of people who don't like the update. ND has already said they won't change it back but balance it a bit more. But you know, this happens all the time. A dev makes changes and the very vocal few on the internet think they are a majority. As you stated: 10:1 - Which is laughable. If it was anywhere close to 10:1, don't you think ND would fix it? They should of gave a choice, but that would of split the community.
ppl have bought the game and have little choice, fact is the community in a majority hate what the multiplayer has become at least in a 10-1 ratio, not giving ppl an option for an old playlist f**king SUCKS! no 2 ways about it, i wont buy anything till its fixed.
If the kid doesn't realize how offensive it is to compare the murder of 6 million people to a video game update, it is useless to even acknowledge him. He loves to babble and if you don't address every single opinion he has laid forth, he just calls you names
Not sure it was the COD community, I hate COD and whilst I loved the U2 MP pre-patch it did take a fair stack of bullets to take someone down, I think it's a good thing, it still has a thriving community - that speaks volumes
True it took more bullets but they weren't necessarily going for realism. I would be fine with the new health system if it had been the same since the beta but changing it months after the games release is just wrong. Everyone who picked it up at it's release was use to how it played and now it's totally different. You say it took "a fair stack of bullets", I say it took skill.
It took a fair stack of skill... which is something most people are lacking today and can't be bothered to spend the time to earn.
the game used to be amazing solid mix up of stealth kills, pulldowns, melee, and regular kills now its 90% ak spray its sh*te. its become heavily pikey as mastiff would say :)
first attempt at mp is legendary,...my fave mp ever and ive played em all.
The update is great! The patch that eliminated rolling shotguns and 2 to the head 3 to the chest is perfect. If i had it my way it would be 1 shot to the head. Why do you people think it was better to be able to survive half a clip with the ak-47 and roll toward your enemy with a shotgun for a easy kill? Nobody respected machine guns or pistols. With the new health everybody respects the gunplay. Im losing respect for those who believed it was better before.
Because now its a campfest. Before shotgunners could be dealt with easily. Now everyone hides like a little b1tch. I loved pistols. A few shots to the dome and they were done.
I had a break following ylod and came back and now really enjoy the mp much more. Before the health patch my golden ak-47 was useless which was disappointing as it was a great pre-order bonus while others just went for the M4 and Fal. Now it is actually possible to get kills with the ak-47 Some people who play mp think they are gods gift to shooters and if they get killed they whinge like babies that a noooooooooooob got them. These folks are my favourite kills...lol
Thank you for reminding me why I should get back into this game with that uneducated comment. A few shots to the dome? Wish I could take a few shots to the dome...
Videogame =/= real life.
well I think the update is fine, but what I mostly would like is a multiplayer map with the tree at the end of the game in it, so you could use the sap as a weapon agains your online counterparts, push more weapons
Glitches are fixed, YAY! :)
its great they fixed the glitches and cheaters cant cheat now but its been far too long of a time and i just didnt seem the point of playing people who are killing me over and over and throught the cover of being hidden in walls!! who wants to play a game where its almost impossible to kill the opposition whilst their cheating... and these people are not even being punished and are still allowed to continue ranking up!! which i find is NOT ACCEPTABLE !! uncharted has major faults but its rarely with the gameplay and manly with its structure and managment.. what about the issues with the $40,000 fine for DC or generally leaving a game!!! 2 leaves within the hour and you get fine $40,000 its should be 3-4 dc/exits within the hour or better yet NOT AT ALL!! NAUGHTY DOG ARE PUNISHING PEOPLE WHO ARE LEAVING I GET THAT BUT THEIR NOT PUNISHING PEOPLE WHO CHEAT??? ALSO what about the 'down the irons' perk being improved what about grenade issues what the sniper issue(when the bullet has no effect what so ever) what about the melee lag issue and why the hell is their only two maps instead of four with the aprils DLC (and yes i understand that it may have been rumour - BUT DAMN IT!! i WANT MY JUNGLE MAP!!! JEBUS!!!) http://www.playstationunive... http://uk.gamespot.com/page... http://moviestinger.com/new...
they are patching to prevent people cheating from doing so ...if they were taxing cheaters it would leave complains like no tomorrow
@ REDEMPTEUR... "they are patching to prevent people cheating from doing so ...if they were taxing cheaters it would leave complains like no tomorrow" what complaining because they were taxed for cheatin? epic fail dude! as for the DLC thing.. yh i thought there was gona be 4 maps as well and would have av loved a jungle map... WHERES THE BORNEO MAP FOR MP?!!
you see that is fail ..but it happenned before on other games " i lost money but i wasn't cheating at all " " i log on , and i lost all my money ..for no reason " can i already picture these kind of complain everyday on ND foroms . probably why they didn't touch the money system of uncharted 2 online
That was so annoying, losing money because your PS3 froze. A real crapper when your on lvl. 11 and you lose three levels!
Remove the ridiculous money cap!
@ drtanuyn i was totally going to write what you said but you beat me to it!! Redempteur got PWND!! LMAO!!
I'm glad they're fixing the spawns. So dam tired of killing a guy and then have him spawn right behind me than kills me back...
How large is this update? Hopefully not hundreds of MB like they sometimes are. I guess I'll see later.
Sought of agree with both of you. But thing is (someone mentioned this) uc2 wasn't really a core shooter to begin with. And the argument that it's too easy to kill now, It always was easy mate! It's not science. Most fights end up close quarter to which one drops grenade while shooting. BLAM! (grenade sound) *humps body* Or Drops grenade but opponet runs away while shooting back. BLAM! *Humps Body* Long shot kills are possible (more so if your camping... or you a camper alpha? hm...? jk lol) But thanks to all the cover a savvy player can get away and get closer. Game was never core. If they change it to one hit kill? well then RESISTANCE 1!! Haha! Good times those games were. But then again campers can get annoying. Again agree with both you.
God i hated every time i tired to look for a good dm and tdm on rfom 1, i see page after page of 1 hit kill maps, where everybody and there dog uses either the bullseye or the m5 carbine and then infinite ammo noob tuber maps. Every once in a great while someone would use something other than carbine or the bullseye, ah resistance 1 were target bomber actually took some skill and shotguns were useful in comp mp, rfom 2 comp mp blah. @16 It's one of 3 things lag, their cheating/glitching, or your not aiming good enough.
There is more. I have lately problems with hitpoints, i shoot a whole M4 magazine empty and yet the person live and hit me with two shots from a pistol and i'm dead. Also, when i shoot with the Hammer, often get the person still live. Weapons hitpoints has definitely a issue.
Why do you guys hate the Cap for quitting? It's only reasonable for letting your team down...If you have to leave you shouldn't have played and thats it.
Heroes Skins in coop! Nice! Maybe is time for getting that heroes skin dlc! =]
Sorry for the double posting, but this pistol thing is indeed anoying! Hope they will fix this soon. Bring more balance to the waepons. But for now I'm quite happy already with the spawn and coop skins. Yeah, I'm this easy!
here comes alpha-male trolling uncharted 2 again what a hater anyway great update ND
you people complaining about the game being too noobish since the update are hilarious. Either you guys used to be really good and suck now since the update, or you always sucked. I'm actually glad they reduced the life bar. Makes it easier to kill people. Drop one,then on to the next one with the quickness. If you are gettin owned quicker than you used to(since you've always sucked) then I don't know what to tell you. As for me,i'm droppin these fools left and right. If you gettin fired on, find some cover dumba**! It's not hard. personally, I just recently picked U2 back up. Haven't played since COD came out. Installed the past updates, hopped online, saw some menu changes, started a standard deathmatch, and do you know what changed for me? I GOT BETTER! I was blastin people everywhere. My game got much faster and more fluid. Sure I read about the changes that were made cuz I stay up on n4g, just don't comment often. But after I realized how quick I put down someone wit a AK, I was like 'oh it's a wrap now, it's f'n over'. so for all you people complaining about the changes(remember, the ones who suck now, but really have always sucked), pull your damn skirts up, adapt to the changes, and shut the f**k up!
I like how you claim people who prefered the game before the update "suck," then go on to state that it is indeed easier to kill people. That feels hilariously contradictive. Indeed. Who needs skill when kills are so easy? Because dammit, everyone deserves a chance to win despite their crappy skill level now in this new noob age of casual friendly games! If I wanted to play a game where people camp in a corner all day, I'd play MW2. UC2 was different, people moved about the map, used traversal... now? Nope.
sooooo.... you're telling me that the majority of U2 players that played regularly before the updates, are now somehow overwhelmed and frustrated with all the 'noobs', because it's easier for them to rack up kills than it was for the regulars? sounds like they are looking for an excuse. If my a** was constantly getting handed to me, i'd look for an excuse too, especially if noobs were the doing it. i'm not all for emptying damn near an entire clip from an AK to drop somebody. it seems like now, it takes a reasonable amount of shots. and please forgive me if i don't believe that you have to have skill to put down someone before the updates, especially with the ak. All you really had to do was get your shots off first, aim for the head, and be the first to reload in a standoff and you were good. any regular u2 player could do that. NOW, since you know your health has been reduced, your skill has to come through. you're on your toes. your awareness must increase. your reaction time has to be spot on. and if some 'noobs' are camping, a simpe grenade will draw them out. easy pickins.
Your only fallback argument seems to be personal attacks about a person whom you know nothing about. Classic case of having a weak argument when you result to personal attacks. You can have your preference, but grow up. What I'm saying is, the game dynamic pre-update was great. You'd see people using cover, climbing, moving about the level, using the different weapons, using melee, and generally being active, especially in objective based games. Now, you see that far, far less because stepping out from cover means you're going to get picked off from some guy camping that you didn't notice off screen. It's boring and it was done to appease the people who DO suck, those who whined that they can't get a kill because they can't aim and screw up when they DO get the drop on someone. I'm saying the game was great pre-update, now it's shallow, slow, and boring. We had an option, OPTION for extreme health before. But now they just ruined the damn game.
ok, I kinda see the point you are trying to make. Maybe everyone has a different experience with the game now, especially now that you mentioned the objective based modes. Like I said, I usually only play deathmatch. From MY experience, the game got faster and I got better. Everyone has their likes and and dislikes. I like it more, you like it less. It's just hard to understand someone like me would adapt to the changes, and end up liking it more, when others would not. I guess I just love that game too much to find any fault worth complaining about to the point where I don't wanna play it ever again.
Fair enough dude. I just wish we had the options of the regular and hardcore health modes like we originally did. Then it really would be perfect.
