Naughty Dog: Uncharted 3 to be realistic and not “over the top”

Gamingbolt: Gamingbolt’s Jim Girgenti was fortunate enough to get a chance to catch up with Team Uncharted over at VGA 2010 awards and indulged in a quick QnA session. (PS3, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception)

Except for the sand monsters/worms.... which will be EPIC.

I love the uncharted monsters.

I want a GIANT SCORPION in there!
but seriously, the desert setting will be really challenging and yet something unlike anything we have seen before if they can pull it off successfully. I am really excited about how the combat in the desert in going to be as there will be very little cover to have ( if they want it to be realistic), this game is going to surprise people and I want to be surprised for a change.

Love how Drake says 'Here we go'...

Reminded me of the 'oh crap...' from uncharted 2 where he was falling off the train lol

The desert may be a huge part of the game but I don't expect you to actually have massive shootouts in endless sand dunes.

You'll walk around for a bit before you find something a little more interesting gameplay wise.

At least I hope thats the case.

the best franchise this generation
mrv321  +   1692d ago
I expect

A city shoot out, namely London.
A Oasis section
A plane shootout as it begins to crash
I'd love a driving across desert scene as you shoot other bad guys.
A shoot out from an abandoned village
A shootout from inside the temple

Variety, while some say there might be too much in games I love it, beats muddy brown shooting Russian/Communists.

EDIT: I bet the 4 disagrees are from people who got scared in the sub level.

awesome, wish there was dust or some smoke coming up though, i think there should be, being that its like an old ruin, hope they add it later
WhittO  +   1691d ago
^^ ye I thought that, but guessing that will definitely be added.

These are some of the most realistic graphics that are not CGI I have ever seen!
mantisimo  +   1691d ago
1.13 a dog says theres a movie! and they look a little embarassed, not surprised DO NOT KILL DRAKE WITH A SH*T MOVIE PLEASE!

Totally stoked for Uncharted 3, nearly preordered today but don't preorder yet guys as you may miss out on gold weopons or something even better!
ExplosionSauce  +   1691d ago
Actually the graphics in that gif are unpolished.
During the same video you see the same scenes from the trailer, but also unpolished in comparison.

So I'm very sure there will be dust and whatnot in that later.

Call_me_Ishmael  +   1692d ago
i just dont understand whats over the top,its a video game
egidem  +   1692d ago
I think what they mean with "over the top" means they are not going to make huge ridiculous claims and then FAIL to deliver on all ground terms. For example, take a look at what happened to The Force Unleashed II...The trailers were mind blowing...and the game just failed to deliver...it was worse than the first one...that is "over the top". They are going to keep it "realistic", simple and neat, just like the previous ones.
Downtown boogey  +   1692d ago
Over the top mean exaggeration. Realistic means, well, matching proportions with reality. For example, Vanquish is over the top with Sam Gideon being über fast and strong while some of the enemies are huge, absorb ridiculous amounts of bullets and shoot all kinds of rockets laser wand whatnot.
UP  +   1692d ago
dont forget all the falcon punching and kicking he can do
RedDead  +   1692d ago
Nah, I think it means, ike jumping from truck to truck for ages, that was a bit unrealistic and over the top. But what the hell...that's why I like Uncharted.
writersblock  +   1692d ago
I disagree again, haha

I think the truck jumping was fine and realistic
I think they mean they wont go over the top like, drake having some sort of superpower or something.
Immortal321  +   1691d ago
to much gore, and chainsaws!
gamerzBEreal17  +   1691d ago
i think they meant not to many bullets to kill (as in uncharted2 online) and no bosses that cant die by bullets are nades only blue stuff that grown on trees :\
mike9077  +   1692d ago
I really did not think naughty dog was able going to be able to make a game look better than uncharted 2 cuz i remember them saying they used 100 percent of the ps3's power for u2. But by the looks of that trailer it seems they have outdone themselves once again cant wait for u3.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   1692d ago
they bever said 100% they said something between 80%. and if anyone can use the ps3s cpu to the max (and i might get burn T_T) itd be crytek
crazyclown  +   1692d ago
crytek LOL...keep dreaming bro and get some glasses
Tony-Red-Grave  +   1691d ago
(knew id get burned) well naughty dog is a 1st partty studio so its an obvious choice. but crytek comes off working in the more powerful platform and are pushing the ps3s cpu to its technical limit. (feel free to disagree) oh and its not a dream if its a fact.

also note i said technical not graphical (where GT5 was aiming for both and more or less succeeded) facts for fanoobs who can't properly give recognition where its due from a pc dev
acedoh  +   1691d ago
Tony you can give all the props you want to Crytek but a great developer is someone who can take a limited platform and make the best out of it. Naughty Dog continues to do amazing things and I still don't think they have reached the limit considering we are only entering the fifth year of the PS3. As long as there isn't a PS4 we will see first parts devs push further.
egidem  +   1692d ago
You know what?
These guys are really talented. If there is anyone who can really show off how what the PS3 can do, it's Naughty Dog....these guys know the PS3 inside and out.

I do like a "fantastique" touch in most games (you know, sci-fi, fantasy, horror...), I loved the Uncharted monsters for instance

But it's ok if they make it realistic in the way that, you know, you do not survive a nuclear blast hiding in a fridge...

That excerpt is from this interview, its right in the beginning. Hes asking if theyre going to go over the top with the cinematics because those parts were amazing to watch. And they said no keep it realistic http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Next year is going to be a killer, all these beautiful titles are coming out, I'm going to be so broke. Infamous 2 ($60), Gears of War 3 ($60), R3 ($60), U3 ($60), Deus Ex ($60), Mortal Kombat ($60), Cyrsis 2 ($60), Last Guardian ($60), Assassian's creed ($60), No More Heros for the Move ($40), Dead Space 2 ($60), Dust (XBLA, ($15) Rage($60), Witcher 2 ($50), Mass Effect 2 & 3 ($120), etc. If you're not dual console owner you should become one now. Hell if your got the money throw a decent PC rig in there, so you won't miss out on the Witcher 2 and Warhammer ($50).

Now if the new Zelda comes out next for the Wii, I can die a happy man. My back logged is getting ridiculous, but the gamer in me can't help it when it comes to good titles coming.
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1692d ago
Only possible in this console.
wissam  +   1692d ago
It only does uncharted 3
cody2oo  +   1692d ago
Considering how many titles coming out, that have already had games that got large recognition next year, is overkill, calm down sony! :D

LBP2, Killzone 3, Infamous 2, Motorstorm 3, Team ICO collection, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, The Last Guardian, SOCOM4, Yakuza 4, Agent, Twisted Metal, Versus XIII, Sorcery, White Knight Chronicles 2, R&C: All 4 One.
DigitalRaptor  +   1692d ago
This is all a part of the strategy.

Release a sh*tstorm of awesome high quality exclusives that the competition just can't compare to, and get as many people interested in these games as possible. And then at E3 2011... BOOM! Price drop to $199 - that's my prediction.

That will soar the PS3 above its competition.

Seriously, along with all the other great services that PS3 is bringing, every gamer out there should want a PS3 in 2011, and even stubborn 360 fanboys.

That's why I think PS3 will dominate the competition, even the 360 with Kinect. The PS3 is where it's at for games - I can't wait to see 360 loyalists get bitter, whilst I enjoy all these amazing, incredible, phenominal games. Call me a fanboy for saying this if you want, but really... it's kinda like karma really isn't it?

Uncharted 3 Is Not Going To Be The Best Game Ever, Thats A Opinion, If It Were True Then The Series Would Have Sold More
farrelljade  +   1692d ago
what you said makes absolutely no sense whatsoever!! what has uncharted 3 being the best game ever got to do with the SERIES selling more copies? the games not even out yet!!

DFresh  +   1692d ago
Uncharted series has sold 8 million to date.
5M = Uncharted 2 (Same numbers as Gears of War.)
3M = Uncharted 1 (During a time when the PS3 cost a lot before the $299 price point.)

8 millions copies said you're wrong.
PHOEBUS  +   1692d ago
I prefer Naughty Dog to actually go over the top. It would make the game less believable obviously, but that's not the point. I mean, the character portrayal is very realistic - why does the rest of the game have to be? But development still has a long way to go, so I'm hoping there will be events that are just batshit crazy

I wouldn't read too much into it. They said they want to "keep" it realistic. Meaning UC2 fits their definition of "realistic". But UC2 as we know had magic sap and crazy "impossible" moments and the usual impossible platforming (like hanging onto a frozen ledge with no gloves...)
Redempteur  +   1691d ago
"(like hanging onto a frozen ledge with no gloves...) "

that's impossible because you don't have the might and willpower of a hero !
Dark-Cloud  +   1691d ago
realistic or not , this game is amazing !!! one of the best games !! but i prefer both things , look at uncharted 1 and 2 , having realistic gameplay , voice acting , graphics but it's still have monesters and stuff like that ! :D .. you seee , both is better then one thing :P ..
nevin1  +   1691d ago
GOW 3 gave Uncharted 2 a run for its money in the graphics department(I never play through the uncharteds yet) so dont u think Santa Monica will just sit back and let Uncharted 3 out do them.

Again I only played the demos of the Uncharted games and GOW atleast on a artistic scale looks better. Tech wise i guess uncharted.

MGS4 was technical achievement for its time, but later PS3 exclusives have passed it which is kind of scary. So bottom line, look for the next MGS PS3 exclusive to be a big leap over MGS4 on a technical standpoint.
