My Uncharted 4 Rope Kill Compilation

by Matthew Thompson

It was back during the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta that I first became interested in recording some of my gameplay footage and sharing it online. On one of the forums where I was discussing the game, everyone was posting cool gifs and clips of their best moments and I decided to join in on the fun. I had never really messed with the video recording feature on my PS4 before that, but soon enough I was recording matches and special sequences that would arise in Uncharted 4’s multiplayer modes Continue reading

Five Thoughts on Uncharted 4

by Matthew Thompson

This is the game I have been waiting this whole gen for and I’m happy to say Uncharted  4 has lived up to the hype for me, delivering one of my very favorite gaming experiences of all-time. I struggle to be able to put into words my feelings about the game, but I’m going to try to (in a likely very unsuccinct manner) over the course of at least a couple of posts. I hope to talk in more detail about my favorite moments from Nathan Drake’s final adventure sometime in the future, but this first post will focus on five major thoughts that I came away from Uncharted 4 with and I will do so in a spoiler-free fashion. Here it goes Continue reading

Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta Impressions: Part 2

by Matthew Thompson

Earlier this week, I posted Part 1 of my look at the Uncharted 4 beta with a focus on the core mechanics and loadout system. Today I am back to break down the maps and a slew of other things from my hands-on time with the competitive multiplayer. Here it goes Continue reading

Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta Impressions: Part 1

by Matthew Thompson

I had intended to do an in-depth write-up on the Uncharted 4 multiplayer beta back in December before I got caught up in working on my year-end lists. After having another go at the game during the recent stress test, I thought now was a good time to come back to this topic. So here it goes (I have also embedded some videos of me playing the beta in these posts, so feel free to check them out) Continue reading

Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Wishlist

by Matthew Thompson

The Uncharted 4 beta looms and I suspect (or at least hope!) the game’s multiplayer will be unveiled at the upcoming Paris Games Week. So it is about time I talk about what I want from the series’ next foray into multiplayer. Before I dive into this, I want to say I realize I probably won’t get what I want. In general, multiplayer gaming has gone in a direction that is diametrically opposed to my sensibilities. But hey it is my wishlist! And I will ask for what I want regardless of how unlikely getting those things might be. Here it goes Continue reading

The Games of E3 2015: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

by Matthew Thompson

(Throughout the next couple of weeks, I will be posting impressions and reactions to some of the games shown off at E3 based on info I’ve gleaned from watching demos and interviews online. Enjoy!)

At the end of 2014, we got our first substantial look at Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. It focused on the core moment-to-moment gameplay and looked superb. It showed us some new features, but more than anything it depicted a much more open combat scenario, overflowing with options and avenues for the player to take, which is exactly what I want from my enemy encounters. My big takeaway from the E3 demo is how a lot of what we saw in that initial showing will likely permeate most aspects of the game Continue reading

My E3 2015 Wishlist

by Matthew Thompson

2015 has been a lackluster year of gaming for me. But E3 is only a week away and with it comes the hopes and dreams of a better gaming tomorrow. And hopes and dreams will take center stage in my annual Pre-E3 post. Sure I’ve added some of my typically inaccurate predictions at the bottom, but they are a mere footnote to the main attraction that is my list of wishes for E3 2015. Without further ado, let’s dive in Continue reading

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Eyes-On Impressions

by Matthew Thompson

My most anticipated game is always the next Naughty Dog title. So for me this weekend’s PlayStation Experience was all about getting our first real look at Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. UC4 was the first game demoed during Sony’s opening keynote and it was a very impressive way to kick off the show Continue reading
