.... THAT is the first comment here?

I've been defending gamers too much. I quit.

Wenis4093d ago

In his defense, she did say it was 'physically draining'...

Hicken4093d ago

... ever seen the mocap session for Uncharted? Ever seen ANY video of a voice acting session? They don't just sit around fully relaxed and perform.

Moby-Royale4093d ago

Come on man......



Wenis4093d ago

..ever heard of a joke..

I think they need too tone down the moaning a bit its become a tennis match at this point. You dont see any other female lead moan as much as Lara.

Moby-Royale4093d ago (Edited 4093d ago )

*you don't see any other female lead*


It's not moaning, it's groaning. I think that it's just fine how it is. Only perverts(I am NOT referring to you) hear moans instead of groans.

If I were alone with no one to hear me I would be groaning way more than she is, presumably.

People(again in general) are just too focused on petty things* without actually taking the time to think any of it through.

Everybody is focused on the wrong things, is all I am saying.

Surely this is clear to you, but again I feel I must reiterate that this isn't directed towards you specifically.

I'm pretty sure if you turned up the volume whilst playing the game (or even watching the videos) people will be like: "WTF is going on in there?"

Uncharted’s Loss Is Tomb Raider's Gain

Given that Naughty Dog is giving up on one of its staple franchises, now is the best time for Tomb Raider games to capitalize on that.

It's not a loss to move on?

SullysCigar199d ago

This nonsense article also neatly sidesteps the fact that just because Naughty Dog are moving on from the franchise, that doesn't mean the franchise stops. ALL of the Uncharted games were amazing and the last one was a moving finale for Drake, but you can bet your bottom dollar the franchise will return after a well-earned hiatus with a BANG, even if it's handed to one of Sony's other studios to develop.

VenomUK199d ago

I love Uncharted (2 and 1 are my favourites). But there is such a thing as franchise fatigue especially with story or character driven games. So it makes sense to let a series rest, it’s good for the audience and it’s good for the developers who get to express their creativity on new projects. Like he⬆ said, it will return and if the gap is long enough that will be exciting for everyone.

Flawlessmic199d ago

Yea I don't see how naughty dog possibly giving us a new ip is a loss at all, it's exactly what I and most others want.

All the uncharted were awesome bit that series had its time now it's onto bigger and better things.

In 10 yrs time then sure I'd be up for another one but not now.

senorfartcushion198d ago

To some live service nonsense most likely.

I’ll be screencapping this reply for the time they do announce their new game.

It’ll be an open world Souls ripoff with microtransactions and events

Sony Bend did great work on Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Since it is unlikely we are getting a Days Gone 2 I would like Bend to continue the franchise (and finally port over Golden Abyss to any other platform then Vita 😞)

_SilverHawk_198d ago

It's silly to think that one of Playstations most successful franchise sony will stop making even after making a blockbuster film about it.

badz149198d ago


heck yeah! more of Eddie Raja please

fr0sty198d ago

Since when is not milking a franchise until it's diluted down to garbage like Call of Duty a bad thing? They have a golden franchise full of amazing games, no need to keep trying to squeeze more money out of it at expense of the quality of the game.

I agree. I’m actually glad that they’re not just making more Uncharted titles just to keep the franchise going. It ended. It was great. Let it rest.

isarai200d ago

"Loss"? "Giving up"? Bowing out after 6 extremely successful entries is not a loss, nor is it giving up. It's a well earned retirement. And honestly i dont have much hope in TR anymore, especially after being bought by Amazon.

jambola199d ago

Yeah, especially from a team like naughty dog who are well known to change it up from generation to generation

robtion198d ago

Naughty dog have amazing talent and I traditionally bought all of their games day 1. That is until TLOU2 (which I bought and enjoyed until 1/2 way through). Woke garbage.
