"Hey, Drake's new hand-to-hand-combat looks really upgradeSHUTUPJIMMYFALLON!"
"Jesus, the set-pieces and dramatic pacing look utterly stunning, and their integration with the in-game action bodes for a whole new level of the Naughty Dog magi...
SHUT YOUR DRIBBLING CAKE-HOLE NOW, JIMMY FALLON AND NEVER AGAIN PRETEND TO BE INTO GAMES WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN USE A CONTROLLER, LEST I BEAT THEE TO DEATH WITH THINE OWN SEVERED ARMS!"
That's what's going to go through your head as you watch this video of Uncharted 3 gameplay from last night's Late Night. Just warning you. Every silver lining has a cloud.
NO THAT IS NOT THE MAN'S CHATEAU!
Ahem, anyway, Uncharted 3 then. Looks mighty good . Assuming the automatic drivel-cannon is right when he says this is the start of the game "because Sully's with you" (*facepalm*), it looks like ND is going for another "Holy crap!" opening scene with this escape from a burning, steadily collapsing chateau (whoever's it is). It'll have to go a long way to beat the comic and dramatic pacing of Uncharted 2's opening train climb, but so far I'm not worried. The question regarding Uncharted 3 is not "Will it be amazing?", but "Will it be as big a jump from Uncharted 2 as Uncharted 2 was from Uncharted?" And when that's your only worry, you know you're in a good situation.
So what do you think? Drake's faster, longer combat combos got you excited about more fluid punch-ups? Looking forward to getting Sully and Drake together for what will hopefully be a much longer period than in Uncharted 2? Really really hate Jimmy Falolon? Let me know in the comments.
