Nothing out of the ordinary so far. But in the weeks following the hum of discontent quickly developed into a booming voice of displeasure.
kind of a dumb piece because it hasent been to long,but i feel no ones gunna care
Actually I think it is late since I've already finished the campaign and I don't play the multiplayer that much.
So let me get this straight. It's OK to bear all the COD glitches for weeks and months before they patch it up but when a SONY related service is presented 22nd day of release, it's NOT. Yup, that's what I thought!
I haven't played Uncharted's multiplayer either. I have finished the campaign on crushing. So there isn't really a point for me to play it again, until I feel like it. Anyway, the aiming/shooting didn't bother me at all, so I don't care if it was too late. At least it will make most people happy. @zeeshan I haven't come across any CoD glitches yet (only just got it 2 days ago). But then again.. I've been busy with University and gym :P
@zeeshan Well obviously it's a fanboy conspiracy and everybody just hates Sony. /s I've only played like 20 minutes of MW3 at my friends house, but there was nothing wrong with MW3s controls. There is however, something wrong with Uncharted 3s controls. Controls/gunplay are really the biggest part of these two games, so you can't really compare the two situations as they are entirely different. If MW3 had major issues with the controls like Uncharted 3 did, people would complain about MW3 as well. This isn't about "glitches" or "bugs". This is about the controls. And don't say there isn't anything wrong with Uncharted 3s controls: they're worse and much less smooth/accurate than Uncharted 2's controls were. And I'm not a cod fanboy (in fact I hate cod), I'm just saying that what you are suggesting is ridiculous fanboy logic.
This article is definitely CVG worthy. How can it be to late for a patch? If it will quiet that loud minority that apparently can handle U3's aiming system, then they should be happy that ND's fixing it so they can actually handle the game.
i started crushing mode but the aiming is so broken and frustrating i didn't want to go through with that again. i don't understand why ND just doesn't override the U3 SP shooting with the patch but instead are making it an "option". it's like saying, here's how broken the game is and here's an option for you if you want it to play U3 fixed.
@vickers500 I think you missed the entire point .. Just another CVG article
ive yet to play the game.. so im happy that when i do i wont have this issue..
So just because you, the submitter, and quite possibly the writer of this article had finished the game and don't intend to play it again, after the patch was released only two weeks after the games release, you consider it as "late". Without taking into any sort of account that it had only been a two week process, and an issue that hasn't been "game-breaking" or severely deterring at all. And you think that gave you enough basis, to create some "too late" rant? how ridiculous and idiotic. If you don't intend to play the game again, then that's your personal problem.
Ofc they will send out articles like this. its only been little bit more than 1 week after their "I LOST MY FAITH ON SONY" article. and another flamebait article before that. They always post Sony flamebait articles. Its just hilarious though given how they troll Sony even though Sony is providing hardcores with best games.
@vickers500 Dude your full of it and so are you PS3 only owning haters. Finished Uncharted 3 day of release and there was nothing wrong with the controls...sounds like too many butt hurt 360 owners. Since MW3 is percieved as GOD on 360 oh dear lord no it doesn't have any issues and thus any who speak of them are fanboys of other titles...lol what a joke.
Oh boo hoo. I'm sick and tired of everyone on here who get incredibly insulted and defensive whenever something that isn't overwhelmingly pro-Sony is posted. You guys are a joke, I don't even know why I bother reading the comments, it's the same old butthurt fanboy crap every time.
It's not that complicated. Millions of people play Call of Duty online. How many are playing Uncharted 3 online enough to care?
Is there ever any kind of discernment? Seriously, if the game case for Uncharted 3 had been filled with live, angry bees instead of a game, would you have rated it, "The best life-threatening series of bee-stings I've ever experienced?" while ignoring the fact that it probably put you in the hospital? For God's sake people. If a game has flaws, own up to them. Everybody already knows that Uncharted is a good, solid series, but it's not the gold standard for everything in goddamn creation. The only way devs, hell, the only way anyone who writes, draws, composes, directs, and in various ways creates can get better at their craft is if people encourage improvement. So maybe every now and then, say to the devs, "Y'know... I guess I didn't actually like the swarm of bees as much as I thought I would. They were really cool and all, but I found aspects of their sting venom to be slightly underwhelming."
Way to imagine your own point, Saladfax. This "article" is about NaughtyDog fixing their game too late, which is a ridiculous claim to say the least. NaughtyDog has owned up to their "mistake" and are taking steps to rectify the problem. There are no bees involved. Your point about owning up has been addressed. Time to move on to the problem of CVG. They wrote yet another bullcrap piece singing their childish infatuation with hating Sony related products. The recently released games with problems may or may not be patched. However, CVG has yet to make an "article" claiming that those patches are too late. BF3, MW3, and Skyrim all need/ed patches. Not one of those games are going to have a patch within the first 20 (or so) days. The "article" is lame.
Not talking about Naughty Dog. I have nothing but the greatest respect that company and the quality of product they produce. They made a mistake and owned up to it; it's quite noble. I admit my point doesn't necessarily fit directly with this particular article, but it's valid nonetheless. You can't throw a stone in this community without hitting several individuals who think <insert game> is without question the greatest piece of media ever seen in creation. It's by far at its worst with the Uncharted series, where God forbid anyone point out some of the many valid criticisms for the series. Much more obvious is the varied commentary which says, "There was nothing wrong with Uncharted 3's controls," in spite of ND's admission and considerable evidence to the contrary, but whatever. You want a different argument, fine. The article brings up a perfectly valid point, assuming individuals have half a brain in their heads. Simply put, if a person wrestled with the trouble in controls, they probably didn't have the greatest of times during gameplay. A person broken out of immersion and consistently frustrated is very likely going to find other facets of the game to dislike. Plot points, repetition, disjointed segments, and so on. It's not unreasonable to assume that a person having a less-than stellar time playing a game might not want to go back to it, even if the original issue was fixed. At least not soon, especially considering the high number of other releases to play.
"Finished Uncharted 3 day of release and there was nothing wrong with the controls" Yes, there is. The controls are terrible compared to Uncharted 2, and that is proof enough that there is something wrong with them. Controls in a game should either improve or stay the same, but in Uncharted 3, they got worse. I've played an hour and a half of the game, and it was very interesting, but the sluggishness of the controls has forced me to wait for the patch. Uncharted 2s controls were absolutely perfect, but for some reason, they decided to mess with them and in turn, ended up making them worse. "@vickers500 I think you missed the entire point .. Just another CVG article" CVG being a terrible website wasn't his point. He was trying to say that a bunch of glitches were the same thing as a problem with controls, and that MW3 was getting a pass for it while Sony was getting slammed for it, except that the two issues are very different and are therefore not comparable. I will admit, that CVG is an absolutely terrible website, there's no question about that, but that's not what I'm trying to argue with. I'm trying to convince the guy I replied to that this has NOTHING to do with "CoD supporters vs Sony supporters" or CVG writing this article because they are fanboys.
@vickers500 No My comment to you was that you missed the entire point. Not that this is just another CVG article. I said this is just another CVG article meaning I wont dignify their known stupidity with an response ... Sorry shouldve made that clear :/ And you still missed his point. You went on about MW3 when he wasnt meaning ONLY MW3 ( way too soon to be a comparable situation because it just released)but games of that caliber "gets a pass".
I think it is...no plan on going through the campaing again but though it was off and sluggish it just needed time to get used to.
Better late than never
OK... im lost Skyrim has so many issues on ps3, that 6mb save file problem, texture drops, glitches etc. We have no idea if Bethesda is addressing the ps3 concerns, and a majority of us have this problem(I honestly can't play skyrim anymore because I have so many problems)... but that is ok.. But when some people complain about the aiming... saying that it is of.... and ND releases a patch 2 weeks after launch.... it is to late? STORY QUALITY: WTF? LIKE THIS WEBSITE: NO
Im just going to hit story quality wtf and like this website no on all cvg articles I see now on N4G ps3 related. I noticed for awhile now all CVG articles seem to be hate ps3 wtf articles and starting to loose patience with their quality of articles.
They're making such a big deal about this when Fallout 3 is still a broken mess on ps3 after all this time.
I care, for what its' worth :) The change in shooting mechanics is the first thing i noticed in UC 3. It's not "bad" per-se, just feels a little sluggish... and that twin reticule that some guns have with that little circle movinga round inside the big circle when Drake turns while aiming.. I'm not finished with UC3's campaign yet, but so far it's been just as awesome as I possible couldve expected. With this update to tweak the gunplay to feel more like UC2 I think this will be a near perfect title!
People that play games knew UC3 had many problems playing the game day 1. Yet, IGN & other sites overrated UC3 giving it perfect scores. Now, they see the problem most of us saw. Another reason I dont trust 98% of gaming "so called" journalists!
Fix an issue on a 2 month old game is "Too little, too late"?
Two months? The game only came out less than a month ago, start of November, making the article even more ridiculous.
Correction! Thanks Thom. Even more of a reason to serve the author a shit sandwich on whole wheat.
I'd rather they fix an issue instead of letting it go till the next game and claiming it is fixed ala GeoW trilogy.
Computerandvideogames hasn't been banned from N4G yet? Trying to think of the last "quality" article they posted. http://n4g.com/source/home/...
This article is just a troll article. Holy hell they act like what they think is what everyone else thinks!! They even say, "we just like most of you".... right there is enough to discredit the article. Their opinion /=/ gamer's opinions.
lol They are probably expecting COD aiming. Just aim anywhere and your opponent is dead. :) I don't have any complain with the aim. Just equip the right weapon with right attachment and the right boosters.
The aiming in multiplayer is good the aiming and controls in SP are where it felt sluggish. Don't see why they even bothered changing it if the ones in Uncharted 2 were smooth and precise. Try playing the games one after the other and you'll be suprise how off the shooting mechanics are in Drakes deception.
I played the whole trilogy in a single week. Didn't notice a single problem 'til someone mentioned it. And even then, I didn't care and just kept playing. Completely forgot about it until I heard it here again in a review the other day.
claiming that the aiming is the same in ALL 3 games makes you a liar !!!! Uncharted had its problem but uncharted 2 perfected it while making it smooth. Uncharted 3 threw everything it out and it looks like it started from scratch. Though its horrible like I said its just something to get used to...its not impossible
lol Calling me a liar? You can check my profile. I got the 100-headshots trophy about a third of a way through the game. My hit percentage was close to 50% before I started pissing it away with the PAK, I believe it is (the huge fucking turret). What makes you think I didn't? If you look up the recent trophies under my tag. You should see a bit from U1, U2, and U3 from a little over a week ago. U1 and U2 I completed on Hard, so you can look for that, and U3 normal (which is actually harder than either or). Maybe it is because of the controls. All I'm saying is I didn't notice, nor cared, and that's the truth. Calling me a liar won't change the past.
I never knew the aiming was off until I seen all the people crying about it.
It's never too late to patch issues. What a stupid article.
Wonder if they'll do the same when Bethesda doesn't end up patching their game in a week or so...
No because modders fix issues for bethesda
there are modders on console versions?
I'm not seeing the problem. All the complaints stemed from that one guys video. Great game plated it a week or so ago.
this article gave me cancer....
Your reply to CVG. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Late is better than nothing. If something needs fixing, then fix it.
Wayyyyy too late I'm afraid...the aiming seriously tainted the gameplay.The gunplay was beyond frustrating!
Beyond frustrating? You must really, umm, how to word this...have a below average capacity for simple R1 spam, shall we say. Trying to be gentle here, but the game is easy even on Crushing. Really, there's no excuse. I'm sorry but it's true. The enemies don't exactly move a lot. It's fish in a barrel.
I agree with the fact that anybody taking the aiming THAT seriously is a total tool, but what you say here is completely false, trouble_bubble. You can't just run-and-gun. Most levels will have you pinned down, forcing you to make use of cover. Don't get me wrong, you can play at a generally fast pace, but you can't run-and-gun. You'll get killed in seconds, especially later in the game. The AI has been improved, and they will now go out of their way to flank you (even when you're laying down suppressive fire) if aware of you're presence. You can't soak up as many bullets as you could in U2. It's definitely the hardest of the three. Generally, for most gamers, the rule of thumb is: start on Hard for U1 and U2, start on normal for U3.
Okay whoa whoa, I'm not dissing UC3 for one. Never said anything about run'n'gun. Maybe I worded it poorly, but my point is that enemies don't start doing Agent Smith moves like the last boss fight in Indigo Prophecy when you attack them. They big armor guys walk right at you. If peeps can't hit that then they suck at games period. If guys are in cover in front of you, they don't start popping out of air vents like Necromorphs behind you. I know the enemies flank you. They jump around the docks, follow you across platforms, flank you a lot and force you out of cover in the ghost town desert village, but never once did I die because I couldn't hit a guy because of my aiming. The 6 or so RPG snipers you fight during the night time castle rooftop escape in that one Syria level? I grabbed the sniper rifle and bang bang bang bang never had an issue lining up my shots. I think it even auto-aimed on them. The people complaining about the controls are making a lot out of nothing. This ain't a twitch shooter where you gotta spin the camera around at 100mph. It just ain't necessary.
I can understand it may being a hassle or what have you but it tainting the gameplay and being beyond frustrating shows all signs of you just sucking .. either that or you just exaggerating.
I didn't even know people had a problem with the aiming until that guy's video, I had no problem and played all the Uncharted games.
never too late, but i will say im holding off completing single player until the patch is here since i started on hard mode. hate dying because of the messed up aiming.
never had a prob but better late than never i guess
"the hum of discontent quickly developed into a booming voice of displeasure." Exaggerate much? BTW, I didnt have a single problem with aiming. Maybe too much CoD has ruined your skills. Its a little harder when the game doesnt autosnap for you just because you were talented enough to press zoom.
Stupid article. Responses saying "yes" are also stupid, as the game's not even been out a whole month. And I STILL have not had this problem.
I'm really starting to hate these dumb articles asking questions..
Isn't everything "To Little To late" when it comes to the PS3 in just about every PS3 article?
Yeah. Just do what I do Story quality: WTF Like this website: NO
with another flamebait article as usual. Nothing to see here folks. Arne of Naughty Dog got in touch with members of NeoGAF to ask them to come help tune the aiming because so many people were saying it was off. They went to ND's studio and sat with them to tune the game as they played it. This all happened within a matter of days after the game released. Don't give this site any hits with their stupidity.
How dumb. A slight problem with the aiming and its suddenly too little too late. What type of BS do people approve these days. I still don't see what the problem is. I am pointing my guns and the bad guys and they are going down. The only thing I have seen so far is that the A.I. seems to move a lot faster and taking cover and seem to avoid my gun shots a lot making it necessary to aim more carefully. I keep hearing 'Its so bad that I can't finish the game' and yet reviewers finished it and reviewed it with no mention of the shooting preventing them from finishing or playing the game. Sounds exactly like the people who claimed KZ2's controls were terrible and yet I finished the game without the controls slowing me down. People are always claiming this and that but its usually just exaggeration or the usual crappy gamer blaming the controls for his or her crappy skills
I might replay the campaign when the patch drops. It's one thing I felt about the game that was holding me back from having the most fun. The slider is an ingenious way to satisfy both parties.
There's shooting problems? that's new to me.
First of all I was able to platinum the game before the patch and despite the slight problems I had with aiming, I adjusted during 1 playthrough on normal and played through the game on crushing. So that tells me that the aiming wasn't as game breaking as some are making it seem like. Secondly, there are developers who take even longer or don't patch their games at all. There was a problem that wasn't even game breaking and ND fixed it within a couple of weeks. Can we stop nit picking this game to bits now and just enjoy it?
It is for me. Bought the game day 1, beat the campaign, than returned it for credit. It really is inexcusable for a game of this caliber to have broken gameplay. The #1 thing that should be looked at right before the game goes gold is the shooting mechanics. I can cut them slack on everything else, but NOT the shooting mechanics. Yes I was able to adjust and still beat the game and still enjoy the game, but the aiming was not a smooth experience throughout the whole game. When creating a shooting game, ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEIR IS NO LAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I get where you're coming from. All I'm saying is that this wasn't as game breaking as many people say it is. Game breaking is something that makes it impossible to play or complete a game. Since it was very possible to get platinum from this game even before the patch. And yes, I completely agree that they should've found and fixed this well before release. But shouldn't ND get at least a little bit of credit for coming up with a patch fairly soon? Because there are games out there that have actual game breaking glitches, and they don't have a patch coming and never will.
I'm pretty anal about the shooting mechanics in a shooting game. But yes, it wasn't game breaking as you say. I still enjoyed it. And yes, ND should get some credit for listening to its fans and fixing it pretty quickly. But I would of enjoyed the game much more if the shooting mechanics wasn't off. Oh well.
I have a hard time believing you ever touched this game. Your comment history states that you have no real love for the game, saying just enough about it to avoid being called a troll. You still seem to be under some impression that Uncharted is, first and foremost, a TPS. But that's false. The franchise is an action/adventure title that includes third person shooting. Very good third person shooting, I might add. That you supposedly bought the game, beat it in a week, and traded it in, says as much about your preconceptions of the title as your refusal to acknowledge anything the game did well. That goes hand-in-hand with your misunderstanding of what the game's aim is.
its not to late til I!!! say its to late.
