Re: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Tried to get a beta code with that link (thanks musick), but no such luck. If anybody has a spare, I'm officially begging!

I loved the first Uncharted, and I'm pretty sure I played through it four times (twice before trophies and twice after). As impressive as that game was, this one looks like it could be even better.

I just feel bad for anybody else putting a game out this fall, because this one could suck all the air out of the room. Every video I see is even more jaw dropping.

That video just sold me on a day 1 purchase -- which I rarely do. The visuals look fantastic and it looks like the targeting and taking out enemies was fixed from the first game.

Re: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

That was the same intro they showed at E3, which sold me on a day one purchase as well

Uncharted 2: Come Play with the Naughty Dogs!

Posted by Justin Richmond // Multiplayer Designer, Naughty Dog

The results are in from E3, and it seems Nathan Drake has already claimed his treasure; Uncharted 2: Among Thieves took home several “Best of E3″ awards, including nods from 1UP, G4, Platform Nation, Go! Gaming Giant, Game Focus, and GamePro. And if you’re a participant in the exclusive UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta, you’re already getting a taste of what is shaping up to be Naughty Dog’s most ambitious video game to date.

The Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta is about to enter its second week, and we’re already making some tweaks to improve your experience. We are preparing a patch for release in the next few days. Properly applying this patch requires some careful attention on your end: You must watch the screen closely while booting into the beta. As soon as you see the patch message come up in the XMB overlay, you should hit X to accept as quickly as possible.

If you miss the window your PS3 will reset but NOT patch. Simply launch the game and you can try again.

We’ll post a notice on the PlayStation.com UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Beta Forum letting you know when the patch goes live, and we’ll also Tweet it out as well on the PlayStation and Naughty Dog Twitter accounts.

Here’s what this beta patch will address:

General

•Grenade explosions now apply damage properly

Matchmaking

•Players should no longer get hung up in matchmaking for long periods of time

Bug Fixes

•Ranks should no longer reset randomly
•Quitting the game will no longer reset the PS3
•Player collision – players should no longer get hung up on each other when moving through the environment
•Player will now be killed if stuck in falling animation for too long
•In Plunder mode, treasures will no longer disappear during matches

Note: ALL RANKS WILL BE RESET WITH THE PATCH

We are also pleased to announce that we will hold four “Play with the Developer” events in the UNCHARTED 2 Multiplayer Beta over the next two weeks, starting today! During these time slots, a lot of us at Naughty Dog will be online playing the game with all of you! You can tell the Dogs apart from other players because they’ll be playing with different models – a pirate for the villains and Drake with a Naughty Dog t-shirt for the heroes.

The dates and times are below:

Tuesday, June 9 – 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Thursday, June 11 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Tuesday, June 16 – 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)
Thursday, June 18 – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM PT (What time is this in my time zone?)

Join us for some fun!

Re: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

I'm so glad this patch is coming soon. The PS3 reboot was getting old, and it sucks waiting like 10+ minutes for match. I might play a tonight but I'll wait until the patch comes out to play a lot. I'm not very good anyway lol

Re: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Apparently I just won an Uncharted 2 E3 Swag Bag from the Playstation Blog.

I have no idea what's in it, but I'm excited for the bag and especially the game.

It looks like it only one 1, Best in Show, or am I reading their awards page incorrectly.

Also, played the game this morning on line and had fun. Don't know if I had fun because of the MP aspect or because I was in a new Uncharted world, but I am definitely going to keep checking it out!

And musick, I'm glad you were able to set chess up.

edit: 2 awards. Best in Show and best PS3 game. Go get em everyone!

Let me hear from edstein first, see what he says. But you are next in line!

I played the co-op this morning (ps3 tethered to my phone!) and had fun ,except the people I was playing with were more interested in shooting each other than the bad guys, which sucked. But it seems that the online co-op mode progresses you through the story? Is that correct?

Re: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Link from above:

Today's question:

Which 1UP staff member hosted the 1UP @ E3 interview with Uncharted 2?

Please make sure to submit this person's first and last name in the "message" section while you send a private message to my 1UP profile.

If you write the answer in just the subject line, you will not get a code!

First 200 to submit the correct answer will receive a PM with the code.

Good Luck!


(PS I think the answer is Bruce Straley. But I'm not totally sure.)
