Nathan Drake’s pain is real in Uncharted 3, it turns out: actor Nolan North had broken two ribs in a cycling accident, just a fortnight before motion-capturing took place.
I've been playing UC2 lately and I'm surprised Drake doesn't break ribs every chapter! The guy falls 30ft+ on his side like 100 times in the game!
It's his shoes. Yes, that's it. His shoes. They're made of antimatter.
That is definitely a interesting little tidbit. Just goes to show how dedicated he is to the part. I certainly can;t wait to get the game and I am also looking forward to the behind the scenes book he is putting together as well.
Haha your comment almost makes it sound like you thought he did it on purpose. edit: I should have mentioned that i knew what you actually meant to say. Sorry for making you waste a bubble explaining. I'll vote one up for you in return.
Nah just meaning he could have called in sick or something and they probably would have understood. But he goes in knowing it is physical work and grits through it.
...and yet he still did it? Kudos, some actors would of just given the job to another actor. Out of all the games Nolan North has provided his voice for, he seems to generally care about the Uncharted franchise.
Unfortunately, I know I won't be able to take any emotionally invigorating content in UC3 seriously, partly because I know that Nolan North also voiced the Adventure Core in Portal 2...

He voices the corrupted cores and the defective turret in Portal 2( http://www.nolannorthfan.co... ). I love his space core one the best - http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I have a pain too because i dont have this game :(
It is simply amazing how good this game looks... A vizio 3d tv is in my future!
i can't wait for this game. :D

Poor Nolan North, the guy is frickin awesome though
I salute your dedication!~
That's freakin awesome. Not only does he break his ribs a week and a half before going into a mocap session, but instead of taking time off to recover, he uses it to his advantage to make the part more authentic. This actor is amazing. Nolan North deserves all the praise he has ever gotten. Best Voice actor around.
A big applause to you sir Nolan North. You bet your ribs that I'm gonna buy Uncharted 3 on the day of it's release, and I'll break anybody's ribs if they dare to get in my way.
