I watched all the recent trailers after finishing the game, and they are definitely misleading. I do think the complainers have a valid point there. They do frame the product like it’s The Continuing Adventures of Joel and Ellie.

I didn’t watch them before playing the game, purely to avoid spoilers. Turns out they would’ve had the opposite effect, but I’m glad I did anyway.

Saying that...

Anyone else feel a bit misled by the marketing and previews for the game?

I remember certain previews saying certain things which are just flat out lies.

Looking back at some of the pre-release videos they’ve changed certain characters and models. Clearly to create more impact when you play the finished product but its also a bit misleading.

I think they had to be misleading to an extent, otherwise it would be

If the choice is between misleading or to pretty much spoil the major plot point around the story, I'm fine with them misleading. I realise some may not feel that way.

I didn't watch or read much, most if not all games go through changes, and there was a delay.

Could have been to avoid spoilers, or it just changed... I have seen "false advertising" which always makes me

enjoying game+, access to all the weapons at the start makes combat more fun, and keep finding lots of stuff I missed, wish the silenced smg had a single shot mode!

Still amazed by all the tiny details

Even with the lighter moments It does sometimes feel a bit too grim, "that" scene was still very difficult to watch for a second time......

turns out neil wanted to kill Elena off in Uncharted 2

https://www.reddit.com/r/uncharted/c...he_was_spared/

there is something wrong with him or he is 15 year old emo edgelord

Turns out Bruce took control and talked him out of it and also he was responsible for getting TLOU to be about Joel and Ellie not Marlene chasing them across the US.

If there is Uncharted 5 its going to be grim **** of a story with him still in charge

He can’t seem to win. One minute he’s an “SJW beta cuck”, and the next he’s a “woman-hating edgelord”. Killing characters off in stories isn’t necessarily psychotic or an attempt to pander to an ideology, it all depends on the context.

Neither Uncharted 4 or The Lost Legacy were particularly grim, so he certainly has more range to him than that.

I was going to wait and get this when it's cheaper but I couldn't resist. Hopefully it's as grim as a lot are saying.

who called him woman-hating edgelord?, if only a 1 or 2 random person did then its hardly a good argument here. He does not hate women at all, infact he seems a snivelling boot lick

If you read it, he thinks killing off characters is being edgy and keep doing is actually cheap story telling. His verison would of been awful for UC2 as Elena was important part of the game and made it really fun with her banter with Drake and Chloe

Also he didn't write Uncharted 4, he just re-wrote parts of Amy's Uncharted 4, he just added Rafe as the villain and added Nadine (who didn't have much character )

Very, but not without some lighter moments, also once finished it is worth reading some theories about the ending which might help with some of the grim stuff

Finished game+ and enjoyed the second run through finding a lot of stuff I missed, like the first it is something I'll keep going back to.

I was being a little tongue-in-cheek, but it’s kinda ironic that people whinge about him for making female characters front-and-centre of TLoU and then also moan when they they hear he “nearly” killed Elena off in Uncharted 2. It’s almost like Elena is an “acceptable” female character because she’s “the love interest”.

Maybe I’m reading into it too much, or maybe not enough. I dunno. I have issues around this game, but the constantly negative discourse is tiring (and the personal attacks and threats to the creative team are completely unacceptable). It’s just a video game at the end of the day.

My mistake. I thought he became the creative lead for the game once Hennig departed and basically threw her treatment out the window (she got no writing credit at all for Uncharted 4).

New Game+ done already? Wow. I doff my cap to you. Honestly can’t see myself going back to this for a long time (although I will eventually), it’s just a bit too hard going for me to jump back in so soon.

Honestly enjoyed it all again, having all the weapons & finishing the upgrades made combat more interesting, and explored more finding things I had missed. I did read some interesting ideas after finishing the game and it definitely made me look at some of the scenes differently.

Agree the the negativity is boring, I've managed to avoid most of that just seeing odd bits pop up in news, the threats are cowardly & pathetic but not a surprise sadly.
