That was actually a good read. UC3 does feel that cinematic that if you're a random person walking in on someone playing, you'd think that they (Jason and Helen) had a part in the game. Voice actors did a good job.

Edit: Lol @ the Metal Gear celebrity section part. Nice find.

"In fact, Metal Gear 2featured more unofficial cameo appearances than any other game I can think of. A quick scan of the image below reveals just how many there were – variously, we appear to have the legendary Richard Crenna (Colonel Trautman out of the Rambomovies), Chow Yun Fat, Dolph Lundgren, Tom Berenger, Danny De Vito, and Albert Einstein, of all people".

And here all this time I thought that really was Helen Mirren. I was all ready to disagree and everything. Turns out I was wrong.

Uncharted 3 is one of those few games that's as fun to watch as it is to play.

If they do the Uncharted film and get the voice actors to play their parts like most of us would want....I mean who wouldn't they are the characters afterall, then this is what they can do for star power and promotional reasons.

Roman, Navvaro, Eddie Raja, Lazarević, Harry Flynn, Marlowe, Charlie could all be played by big stars so Sony can promote the film with them but at the same time use the voice actors which would be a nice treat towards gamers.

Hell even Camera Man Jeff, Tenzin and Karl Schäfer could all be played by big stars as cameos.

If they do this then EVERYONE would it would be cheaper in the long run since I bet they wouldn't pay Nolan, Emily and Richard as much as they would do to a big star like Bradly Cooper.


I loved Marlowe as a villain, I can't believe they give her a crappy death though. I wanted her to get a way with her organization left in ruins...kind of like a "You havent seen the last of me" type of thing. Then she could pop up in Uncharted 6 (if it goes that far)

I've been thinking. With the film why do live action? Why not CGI like Tin Tin. The actors are used to the mocap and would get to play their roles. It would also allow ND to put ideas in that they didn't feel worked from a gameplay perspective.

Totaly can someone disagree with this.

It's the most logical thing to do if they want to use the voice actors since they moan on about not having "star power" with them. Get the villains played by big well known actors, problem solved.

Cutter is awesome. Glad they included new [vibrant] characters into the game!
