Wow! I see this as every bit as good as Tomb Raider.

Yeah, that looks great. Naughty Dog does amazingly good work.

Wait, Naughty Dog didn't make that last Tomb Raider game?

This is basically what that other The Walking Dead game should have been.

June 14th? Did this get pushed back again? Thought it was coming out in May can't wait to play this. I'm working on my huge backlog right now, but I will push everything else aside when this comes out.

I'm afraid to come into this thread because it keeps getting bumped back.

Yeah, back in February, it got pushed back to June. Only a month. Not really a big deal, IMHO.

... which is exactly why you have a huge backlog.

Eh I'm getting better about it. I haven't bought Tomb Raider or Bioshock Infinite yet because of my backlog. I'm playing Saints Row 2 right now

The number of times it's been pushed back concerns me more than waiting the extra month. I thought this bad boy was originally coming out last Sept, then Jan, then May ... and now June.

At least they can't say they were rushed!

They can since the delays are to add multiplayer.

Just kidding.

This poor game is not even fully playable yet, still needs a few more months of work...I'm guessing a "pushed until the fall" announcement is coming in a week or two.

I saw an interview with one of the developers and he explained they're blind.

Normally, a delay to fix things is never a problem in my book; I'd rather have a functioning game than one on time. In this case, however, I'd imagine there's immense pressure from SCEA to get this AAA PS3 title out before the PS4 launch window. You don't want a PS3 game stealing your thunder when you're trying to highlight the next generation's launch titles.

Especially when that AAA PS3 title cannot be played on their brand new console.

How do you know its not fully playable? That doesn't seem likely, unless you have a different definition for fully playable then I do.

He's a game tester or something like that.

New High Score? What does that mean? Did I break it?

I really disliked the shooter gameplay portions in Uncharted, unfortunately they all devolve into that as the games goes on (It was rough pushing through on 1 and 3, Uncharted 2 has such a fascinating world it was easily ignored.) so I really hope they touched that up a bit in this one. Naughty Dog makes high quality adventures, they just need to work on the action part a bit.

how did you get that pic of me?!?! Yeah, I've played it off and on over the past 5-6 months. Most recently two weeks ago and there are still giant sections of levels missing, no animations, missing cinematics etc. Just seems quite far from done already, but who knows, they rushed UC3 at the end and it was ok.

They had a fan art contest, and this was one of the winners from the Video section. I love how close to the real thing they got this:

Got to play this a week ago and it was actually pretty decent. Really slow start but got good towards the end. Took me just under 10 hours on Easy, which was a good length to me....maybe shave off an hour or two of the boring beginning for a nicer 8 hour campaign.

So they got that much accomplished in a month? Still my most anticipated game this summer. Hope it's great.
