Uncharted 3 - Naughty Dog "already know what they want to do"

SystemLink: "If it passed you by, Uncharted 3 was basically announced in January. Nolan North is definitely back as Nathan Drake, and Naughty Dog boasts that the game will be graphically superior to Uncharted 2." (Dev, Industry, Naughty Dog, PS3)

I think they will be using MLAA this time.

I just replayed the first level of uncharted 2 again and I dont know how I stopped playing that game.

-More co-op
-More Sully

Since UC was dubbed "DUDE RAIDER" I had my hopes up for it actually
being a slight rip off of tombraider... exploring & puzzles.. But its just not that type of game. The puzzles could be more difficult though.. or require some searching. But yeah, it would be a different game.

Can someone just make a normal tomb raider?

blahblah  +   1835d ago
anything but boss battles. and less killing more exploring if possible.

while killing doesn't bother me so much, boss battles and their randomness pissed me off. uc1 and the enemy waves were much better and required you giving your best. uc2 boss battles were requiring 99% of luck and 1% of non sense (I almost felt like fighting final boss in R&C:ToD without groovytron). if they really do boss battles again, then best thing ND can do is explore how well DS implemented them, not one death was random
-Alpha  +   1835d ago

IMO the boss battles in UC2 were a letdown and weren't as creative. A lot of it was blindfiring and running in circles except for the chopper battle.

I'd like to see better boss battles. As for puzzles, number47 made a good point on that it's not Tomb Raider.

IMO the puzzles were way too easy and some of it was just filler. But if you make them TOO hard it breaks away from the experience. I think puzzles should require some more thinking but they shouldn't be frustratingly impossible that it breaks away from the action for too long.

Regardless, UC3 is going to be fantastic. I hope to see ND do Jak 4 sometime before the PS3 cycle ends, I adored these guys since Jak 2/Spyro.

I bet if they even wanted to create a piece of crap and tried so hard to make it the worst game they have ever made, it would STILL win GOTY.

Yea, it was also called best game of this generation, one of the best games ever, and is the most awarded game of all time... but I guess you forgot about that right? LMAO.
ExplosionSauce  +   1835d ago
@ number47
Regardless of what Uncharted was dubbed by the fanboys, it is almost nothing like Tomb Raider.

I mean, he hunts for treasure. But here are other games that have much more in common with each other than UC with TR. I mean, go to a store and look at all the games that share not just gameplay, but themes in common.

Just look at the gameplay itself. I love the TR series, but the TR games I grew up playing were a lot more puzzle based, getting through traps and fighting off wild animals.
Uncharted is a lot more combat based, with mercenaries and whatnot. It's hard to explain, but when you play one game and then play the other, there isn't much alike.
morganfell  +   1835d ago
When we met with Amy Hennig at GDC and discussed the design of Uncharted 1 and 2, one of the points she brought up in a very subtle manner is that the Uncharted titles are adventure games. They aren't shooters, they are adventure games with shooting. They aren't puzzle games, they are adventure games with puzzle elements.

The games have to be made for the majority. The game has to move at a certain pace and rhythm. We discussed the puzzles and the gist was that if the puzzles were to be too complex then it drags down the natural ebb and flow of the game. Her vocal regret was two places in Uncharted 2 where the difficulty spiked - yes, one of the spots that she didn't like in it's published form was the fight with Drazen.

On a personal note I think they know what they are doing. More GOTY awards than any title in history is a strong indicator they are on the right track. I don't really care to have them monkey around too much with an already proven formula. The last thing I want to hear myself say is, "Crap, why couldn't they just let well enough alone."

Why wouldn't they know what they want to do?
Its been almost 12 months and they are not amateurs they have the perfect formula they just need to carry on using it now.

They made Uncharted 2 in just 23-24 months.

I would be shocked if they actually hadn't decided on an idea yet and hadn't started making the next game.
TheLastGuardian  +   1835d ago
Obviously Uncharted 3 will come eventually. I highly doubt Naughty Dog is going to stop at 2 with the sucess that the first 2 games had. I'd love to play many more adventures starring Nathan Drake and so do millions of other fans.

I hope they do implement a "sandbox" approach this time around. Like Tomb Raider, you can can choose a number of ways to finish the level (I.E. multiple routes to gain item parts to proceed). Swimming levels, vertical levels and much more.

Wow, wake up maybe? Super Mario is the best platformer around, Ratchet and Clank doesn't have a chance. And Killzone isn't even good, 6/10 at it's height. I'll give him Uncharted 2 because that's one of the best adventure games ever. MGS3 is way better than MGS4.
WLPowell  +   1834d ago
@ Roozium
you're right MGS3 is better than MGS4, and MGS3 was made on what system?

And when Mario introduced shooting (Sunshine) it was weaksauce compared to R&C:UYA. Mario is good at just doing mario, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

I large plains stampede/vechicle chase, which you have to escape in cargo plane, in front a giant gorge.

I hope drake does some serious spelunking, with some cool slide areas.

I love this series, and I honestly believe is single handedly defines this Gen.

Oh, and a group of treasure theif type bosses, with their own skills to battle Drake.

I was about to say the same thing as far as the MP goes. More damage, less damage, it doesn't matter, just don't change it.
mastiffchild  +   1835d ago
To this day the worst thing about U2 MP is the numnber of times a game just ends because of host connections dropping out. If ever a game needed dedicateds on PSN it was U2 but I guess they didn't KNOW how successful the multi would be? Certainly, I'd rather they left creaky P23P behind this time out. Warhawk and R2 benefit SO much from having proper dedicateds that it makes tons of sense to me for U3 to have them-even Gears3 is looking like having them so come on ND/Sony make it so! Also, getting punished for "leaving" a game where it's not anything to do with you as it just effed up always felt a bit tight. Rarely happens on even other P2P games, mind, so maybe they just ended up choosing the wrong host for some reason?

Do agree, though, don't change a MP basics when everyone's used to them(see also KZ2 controls)-I enjoyed the final boss fight in U2 though but I suppose something grander for a finale would be amazing.

I'd like them to have a Nose flavour to the treasure hunting this time around. Maybe searching for some ancient Viking artifact of amazing power with scenes set in Fjords, low land deciduous and highland Pine forests and so on. Norse mythology and religion allows for some amazing tales in and of itself and is ripe for manipulation at the hands of Amy H! Even the Gods(Thor, Loki-a god of mischief FFS!-, Hera and Odin are all quite complex in the way their stories have been recorded and handed down already)have a lot of character to draw on and mixed with bits of Viking lore that could take Drake from Scandinavia through the Hebrides wind swept splendour and on to the US via Greenland and a stop off in volcanic Iceland and there's a plethora of varied and exciting set ups for Drake action!

I'd loved to see Drake racing his nemesis(with added Sully natch)tracing the footsteps of Viking settlers and raiders while uncovering some secrets of how they managed it all so long ago. Obviously there's a lot of other stuff and other histories and myths to raid but I think the Viking route would be cool as all hell if done well-and when it's been tried before it's just got a bit daft(TR I'm looking at you!). whatever happens, though, I'm already pretty sure it'll be a quality and inventive outing from ND and Nate.

Though I respected the original and hated the sequels, the National Treasure movies are a perfect source structure for Uncharted 3.

Taking Drake's exploration to dense urban areas could be phenomenal. I could imagine a great stage that takes place in the streets of Philadelphia with traffic, shoot outs, chases, etc.

It seems like the first two games avoided the U.S. intentionally. They should craft a story that features the U.S. in a way that hasn't been done yet.

Though, Resistance 3 may run that idea through the ringer...Viva la Playstation!!!

Graphically I just want to see a higher polygon count in the character models.

Gameplay-wise, it would be cool if they went further with the "grab-n-throw" move in multiplayer (when you pull people off the ledge). For example, maybe the ability to CATCH your teammates as they are falling...or help throw them to a ledge that would otherwise be unreachable...stuff like that.

Story-wise I hope they once again base their story on actual cultures and mythology as they did in Uncharted 2.

I dunno ... I just know that ND will deliver ... GO Naughty Dog !!!
DigitalAnalog  +   1835d ago
"they did say uncharted 2 used close to 100 percent of ps3 power"
That is incorrect. Naughty Dog stated that they've utilized 100% of SPU's, meaning they're always constantly running without being idle. It's like saying the 4WD is running in all 4 wheels at the same time instead of the "rear 2".

Engine refinements on the other hand is a totally different story. Most likely 60% - 70% of the PS3's power. Added to that MLAA, adjusting for power inflation could also mean a 10 - 20% boost in extra performance.
