  1. For the past... wow, 11 years, people have been putting forward the name of wisecracking actor Nathan Fillion to be the motion picture face of the Uncharted series. Fillion, known for his roles as a freewheelin' space captain in Firefly and wealthy book author/crime solver in the long-running Castle series, frequently talked about wanting to take on the role, but did not land the part for the official film. Tom Holland is currently slated to play the role of Nathan Drake in the official upcoming film, which will serve as a prequel to the events of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. However, that doesn't mean that Fillion has completely given up hope of staring as Drake. Earlier this week, a 15-minute fan film appeared on YouTube. Directed by Alan Ungar, the short stars Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake and Stephen Lang as Drake's long-time friend Sully. Drake, suspected of stealing an artifact from a mysterious, wealthy businessman quips his way through an interrogation scene - something that's all part of the plan to recover a clue to something bigger than he or Sully could have ever imagined. The short definitely feels like only part of a larger project, though it's probably too much to hope that we'll ever see a feature-length film that elaborates on this particular plot. If anything, this feels like a proof of concept for Fillion as a potential action star. Take a look below: Look, all I can say is #MakeFillionNathan. View full article

  3. Bruce Straley announced his intention to leave Naughty Dog last night. Straley made a name for himself handling the art on the Sega Genesis game X-Men, and has had a somewhat legendary career ever since. He had a hand in the creation of Crystal Dynamic's Gex: Enter the Gecko, joined Naughty Dog to work on Crash Team Racing, moved onto the Jak & Daxter series, became the game director of Uncharted 2, and then was made the game director of what would eventually become The Last of Us. Most recently he won awards for his work on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. This is the guy that gave us "The Bruce" during E3 2012 when The Last of Us was announced. After 18 years, Bruce Straley departs from Naughty Dog to pursue interests outside of the game industry. "This has been the hardest decision of my career, Straley wrote in a blog post discussing his career move, "Naughty Dog is home. The Kennel is family. I’ve learned and grown so much from working with this incredible team. But after heading up three extremely demanding projects, and taking some extended time away from the office, I found my energy focusing in other directions, and I slowly realized this was the signal that it’s time to move on." Straley talked about his beginnings at Naughty Dog saying, "I was employee #15. From day one, I knew I was surrounded by some of the most talented, driven, and passionate people in the industry. They were pushing themselves to do things beyond what they even thought was possible, which in turn pushed me, and I loved it! I mean, it was also extremely intimidating, but the energy and determination to make something great, something we could all be proud of, was infectious. And that’s the way it still is to this day. [...] I can't wait to see what they create in the future." He ended his statement with a heartfelt expression of thankfulness for co-workers, friends, and fans: With the deepest gratitude — thank you to everyone I’ve gotten to work with over the years. I’ll miss you and your energy profoundly. Thanks to Andy and Jason for taking a chance on me and setting the bar. Thanks to Amy and Neil for being great creative partners. Thanks to Christophe for all the support and inspiration — I’ve learned so much from you. And an extra special thanks to Evan Wells. You were the first person I met who truly inspired me to believe in the power of gaming, and if not for you I may never have made it to Naughty Dog in the first place. My appreciation goes way beyond what words can say. And a sincere thanks to the fans. Knowing I was a part of creating something that touched or moved any of you made this whole thing worthwhile — and now I, too, get to anticipate the next Naughty Dog masterpiece! As I close this chapter with a heavy heart and an appreciation for everything Naughty Dog has done for me, I open the next with an excitement to continue the journey into the creative process. I don’t have anything to announce just yet, but I look forward to the discovery and to sharing it with you all soon. You can keep a lookout for any announcements on my Twitter: @bruce_straley Dog for life, Bruce Straley Naughty Dog is sure to feel this departure. Straley is a talented developer - here's hoping his next workplace can help him find happiness and a bit of rest after going through the crazy process of creating numerous AAA titles.

  5. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy kicked off Sony's E3 festivities with a new story trailer. Releasing August 22, the adventure stars series favorite Chloe Frazer and Uncharted 4's tough-as-nails mercenary boss Nadine Ross as they search for the legendary Tusk of Ganesh. Gameplay featured in the trailer is the standard action-packed fare we have come to expect from the Uncharted series, but what seems to set the game apart from its brethren is the tense relationship between the two treasure hunters. The two characters seem to have an unwilling but necessary partnership. Official copy for the game describes their adventuring as such: "along the way, they’ll learn to work together to unearth the mystery of the artifact, fight their way through fierce opposition, and prevent the region from falling into chaos." How do you feel about this expansion into the Uncharted universe? View full article

  7. Naughty Dog chose to reveal one of the cinematics from their upcoming unnumbered Uncharted game. The new adventure stars Chloe Frazer, professional adventurer, and her mercenary companion Nadine Ross as they unlock the mysteries surrounding the Tusk of Ganesh to keep it from falling into the hands of some bad, bad people. The new cinematic shows a bit of a quieter moment between the two leads as they uncover the secrets of an ancient medallion that could lead them in the right direction. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy releases for PlayStation 4 on August 22, 2017 and will retail for $39.99.

  9. We've covered a lot of games after fifty episodes of this podcast (and a number of fun honorable mentions and extra mini-sodes). Since we are hitting a podcasting milestone, we figured it would be a good opportunity to look back and re-evaluate some of the games we once praised and choose one to kick out of our arbitrary, growing video game canon. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the first of our deathmatch episodes! MUAHAHAHA! Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Donkey Kong Country 'High Tide' by FoxyPanda (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03327) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!

  11. Since Naughty Dog recently released the fourth Uncharted game, we took the opportunity to talk about the 2007 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. As the title that resurrected the third-person shooter for the modern age and proved to the world what the PlayStation 3 was capable of rendering on-screen, is Nathan Drake's initial adventure one of the best games period?

  13. Anyone in here going to pick up the Uncharted Collection when it launches on October 9th? What's your favorite game in the series and why is it not #2?
  14. A few weeks ago, the industry was flabbergasted when Amy Hennig, long-time creative director of the Uncharted series, unexpectedly left Naughty Dog. She has since been picked up by Visceral Games, the developer behind Dead Space and Lord of the Rings: The Third Age. It would appear that Amy Hennig was attracted to the idea of being the creative director of a new Star Wars game. For those that don't know, Visceral Games is owned by EA which has a contract with Disney to make games based on the Star Wars IP. The prospect of having creative control over a Star Wars property is certainly a mouth-watering prospect for any creative individual, especially a person of Hennig's creative caliber. Steve Papoutsis, the vice president and general manager at Visceral Games, expressed his excitement at what Hennig would be bringing to their Star Wars project: Over the last few weeks, Amy and I have spent a lot of time talking about what her first project would be. There are a lot of different directions we could have gone, but I could sense that what really excited her about this opportunity (because let’s face it, we weren’t the only ones knocking at her door) was Star Wars. Amy’s a huge fan. We happen to be making a Star Wars game. Just thinking about the possibilities made both of us even more excited about having her join the team. We're all pretty dang excited, too, Steve. As for what exactly that Star Wars game will focus on or be about, no one outside of Visceral knows. There has been some speculation that the remnants of Star Wars 1313 may have been picked up by EA following the closure of Lucas Arts. While there is no reason to believe those rumors, I can't help thinking how awesome playing a game that was described as "Uncharted + Star Wars" helmed by the actual creative director of Uncharted. This isn't likely, but a guy can dream, right? View full article
