Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski has congratulated Naughty Dog on the reception of Uncharted 3, and Naughty Dog has commented about the reviews they have seen thus far.
Showing the love. ND congratulates Epic, Epic congratulates ND. Edit: What's with these random disagrees lol?
I love how both ND & Epic showed each other love in this era of fake internet console war. Two title on two systems can both be enjoyed by ALL. Absolutely love Gears 3..playing BF3 right now but best believe it's day one for Naughty D Evil
It's not just Naughty Dog and Epic. Most developers are like this...except Turn 10.
Hey, easy. Turn 10 actually kept their mouths shut this time. Mostly. I quite happy for Forza to have success as long as the devs learnt a little humility. I think they saw all the trash talk go them nothing last time.
Crytek are some critics too...remember all the smack they were talking, trying to hype Crysis 2?
Oh my god! An industry figure congratulating another industry figure!
Well, to be fair, It's not like you see this kind of thing everyday. And if nothing else, it'll remind the fanboy's that they are the only ones participating in their little "war".
IMO Uncharted series has been the most fun games I have played this gen. It is unfortunate that the first one did not get as much credit as it should. Its gr8 that a devoloper like epic gives credit to ND.... now they shoud just work together and maybe make the unreal engine work just as good as in the xbox. It's sad that the xbox fanboys failed to acknowledge how gr8 this series is because it is the only game that brings a nice balance of action, platforming, and cinematic feel in a whole game package.
"nice balance of action, platforming, and cinematic feel in a whole game package." thats how i feel about UC3...
The first one has an 87 MC average, what's wrong with that?
Didn't you get the memo? Anything below a 10 is a piece of shit comparible to ET and Superman 64.
@dinkeldinkse I know it's strange. I know you've seen the guys who trash games and call them mediocre when they score in high or mid 80's on Meta right? Something's really wrong with those guys hey? :/
Why would ND want to use Unreal Engine? Their own has better everything. Edit Sorry, unless you meant ND help Epic with PS3 to run UE, not Epic help ND with UE on PS3. I might have misunderstood you.
Rageanitus, Get real with the "xbox fanboys failed to acknowledge..." crap. Most xbox only owners I know don't even know what Uncharted is and don't care. Hell, most of my PS3 fans don't know what it is or they played it didn't like it. If you want people to "acknowledge" the game, tell your ps3 only brethren to actual buy some damn games instead of talking about them and posting lists. I'm doing my part, how about you? You should be worried about current ps3 owners who don't support the games worth a damn versus people who don't care about it. Uncharted is great but it most certainly isn't the only game with that is a "nice balance of action, platforming, and cinematic feel in a whole game package."
some one is cranky today
Mendicant, you have to ask yourself, why do these people not care about Uncharted? It's fabulously polished with charm and the ingredients of an incredible game - so therefore should have the mass appeal that propelled Crash Bandicoot and Spyro. I could say it's not as accessible, but that would be a lame excuse. Another theory would be lack of multiplayer, which again, is lame! I could say "not on Xbox", but you would call that lame. I don't get why so many games aren't more popular when they have everything it takes.
Wow,someone clearly woke up on the wrong side of bed today.
I love a good 8/10 game, Hitman Blood Money anyone? Edit: also Mendicant, I'm an xbox owner and I think Uncharted 2 is the best game this generation, we don't live under rocks man. although I agree that ps3 owners need to start buying their games, Resistance 3 was awsome.
It's not true that xbox fanboys fail to aknowledge this game series. If you go to most sites with reviews or preview videos of the uncharted games you will see that almost unaminously they are enjoyed and voted high by users. It's only a small handful who are the diehards that continue to troll. Even the pc boys, who are used to great graphics, give the games props. Uncharted series is prett much untrollable.
I can make one major flaw about the game but it is my opinion.... the shooting mechnics are not as solid as other shooters..... but hey its a platformer/shooter so that flaw is covered. Im glad the are putting alot of effort into the melee... something the first game lacked alot.
The shooting mechanics don't just become the way they are by accident.... Either way the term 'major flaw' is highly out of place here. I will re word your comment to what it should be.. "I don't like the shooting mechanics as they are not similar to other games I have played, But the platforming distracts me from my distaste so I don't mind. I'm glad they are putting a lot of effort into the melee, something I wish the first game had more of.." Fix'd
I love that word...untrollable...
so,,ND and epic gonna make sth together? maybe in my dream.
Awesome. 94 > 91.
C'mon now don't be like that. Regardless of the points scale, both these titles have reached universal acclaim amongst critics. As AAA quality titles, They should be commended together. NOT compared against each other.
"94>91" Which opens the doors for a sales comparison between the two games, which opens the doors for someone bringing up GT5 vs. Forza's sales, which opens the door for someone bringing up the meta scores for Gt5 and Forza.... God...sh*t never ends on this site...
Awesome trolling MJ
BUT!!! Uncharted 3 = Gears of war 3 Don't be a dumbass
cliffy b, you lack class like naughty dog, go keep complaining about review scores.
I hope some of that class rubs off on the ps3 only crowd.
Why don't you lead by example? Oh I'm sorry. You're to busy whinging about PS3 fanboys when you're no better then one.
@ Silly So true. Proof, Heavy Rain spoiler madness. That was hella petty, you couldn't even search the game up without it being spoiled (Still can't really). Fake question PMs, spoilers on non related gaming sites and forums (I got Heavy Rain spoiled for me while I was looking up highlights on ESPN.com and reading the comments lol), etc. Both PS3 and 360 fanboys suck to me.
Lol, you guys trolling each other and bashing the games like little children. Been enjoying the hell out of Gears 3 and got Uncharted 3 coming in the mail from Newegg day 1. Both will be mine muahahaha =D
I hear that man. These guys with 1 system act like they winning LOL. I'm playing Gears 3 now and will be enjoying U3 and Zelda Skyward Sword!! Like I always says, "Have fun fanboys, I know I will"
is that simoncelli in ur avatar?
I love Gears3...Love it.....and now I'm ready for UC3!!! Great job to both teams! :)
That's awesome to hear, I remember Amy Henning from ND congratulate Cliffy B on Gears 3's succsess. I love Gears of War 3, TDM and KOTH <3 And I can't wait for UC3, currently playing the subway beta.
Who is Cliffy B, a rapper?
Cliff Blezenski (sp.), lead designer and I think project manager at Epic Games, creator of Unreal Tournament, Gears of War, Shadowrun, among others.
"It's not just Naughty Dog and Epic. Most developers are like this...except Turn 10. " @Cyrax I never saw PD congratulating T10 on their success..I never saw DICE congratulating Treyarch or I.W on COD game success ..I never saw Valve congratulating any other game company... I can give you more names... .Epic nd ND appreciate each other's work but not every developer is like them... So stop posting BS....
That's true. Turn 10 actually acknowledged the enormous influence and the quality of GT, while Polyphony always diverted when asked about other games in the market. Perhaps it's part of the Japanese culture: DMC and Bayonetta developer for example (can't remember his name) claimed that he didn't play other H&S games if I recall correctly.
To add to your point, I can actually remember Shigeru Miyamoto blatantly stating that he had never even heard of Ratchet and Clank during the release of Super Mario Galaxy 1. At the time, I thought he was just being extremely disrespectful towards Insomniac, but when I come to think of it, he was probably just telling the truth.
Did you ever think that maybe some developers congratulate each other privately rather than publicly? They could be sending each other e-mails or congratulation cards for all we know.
And as a 360 only gamer I must also congratulate them on a great game, wish it was coming out for the 360. Tis the only series on the ps3 that I really covet.
I remember when Cliffy B was in map making competitions for the original Unreal Tournament. He has come an amazingly long way. He might be a bit of a dick but who isn't. Kudos to him.
