Not gonna lie: I’ve waited on UNCHARTED until I saw what Honest Trailers had to say about it. It’s not so much that I agree with their takes as it is that their takes are consistent, which lets me apply a correction factor when using them as a benchmark. And I regret to say that… yeah, I’m probably not watching UNCHARTED anyway.
I know y’all are just ripped up about that. Inside, I mean. Tremble for the Republic! Tremble for Humankind!
I dunno. At least Tom Holland is believable as somebody who can do jumpy-flippy stuff. The thing is, though: I’ve never seriously played UNCHARTED. I just can’t get into console games, and yes, it drives me nuts, too. So I dunno how badly I want to see this.
Nathan Fillion worked better for me for that character. On the other hand, I’m going to be an sykes about it, because that’s apparently happening elsewhere. And on the gripping hand: video game movies generally suck anyway. There’s no reason to assume that UNCHARTED is gonna buck that trend.
…I’m so proud. Now he gets to learn about such an integral part of the gaming experience; to wit, the way that you can’t find out what the schedule for new DLC is, whether they’re doing any to begin with, and how most companies manage to shrink their DLC schedules down to the bare minimum or beyond whenever your back is turned. And then there are the sites that lie about DLC! Just so that you’ll click. And almost start a story about new Spider-Man DLC, until you realize that it’s just a recycled story from last year.
Or so I imagine.
PS: I’m trying to make time to actually play the damn game, yes. And the Uncharted games, although those I might as well wrap up and give my kid them for his birthday. Lord knows he’s burned his way through Spider-Man.
Uncharted is the first in the new Arcane America series by Kevin J Anderson and Sarah Hoyt, and it has proven to be most diverting. As you might have guessed, it’s alternate history fantasy (magic returns in 1759 and promptly cuts off America from Europe), set in the early 1800s and telling of a somewhat different Lewis and Clark Expedition. I look forward to the upcoming books in the series, although I suspect that they’re going to be somewhat more violent than the inhabitants might suspect. Can’t say why without spoilers.
