OCT 2015: Uncharted Month (+Recap)


As you may or may not know, this year I have been trying to theme each month of videogame playing, so far covering series such as Zelda, 'Souls, Final Fantasy, Witcher, Metal Gear and now it's time for another new topic. Since most other new releases don't hit until the end of the month, October's highlight will mostly be spent playing through the Uncharted remasters on PS4, and so I've decided to make this month my 'Month of Uncharted'. As always this will mostly involve playthroughs and reviews of games within the series, but may also be supplemented with articles, opinion pieces, etc. I really enjoy writing about these themed months, and it helps to structure my videogame playing, often either allowing me to get through some of my backlog or to just play through the latest topical releases.

The main spectacle this month will be a thorough play through of the newly released Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, which is a boxed set of 1080p 60fps remasters of: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. I've actually played all of these games before on PS3 and *loved* them (for the longest time I considered Uncharted 2 to be one of the finest videogames of all time), so I'm very much looking forward to playing them all through again with a myriad of not-just-cosmetic improvements. As I write this I'm actually about 80% through the first game already, and already noticing the things that have been changed in order to bring these old games into more of a modern videogame context. I'm having a blast! I'll be pumping out reviews for each one of these games separately once I've completed them with my impressions about how much they improve upon the original.

Not part of the remastered collection on PS4, Uncharted: Golden Abyss is actually a PSVita game by a different developer than the other games in the series, and one that I've not played and at this point in time don't own either. My questions to you, the DToid community (and those people who have already played it) is: shall I buy this game and give it a go? is it a good game? worth playing alongside the main Naughty Dog entries? I have other videogames and DLC pre-ordered this month, such as the Witcher 3 expansion, and so I'm debating whether it's worth making the time to play this. If I get enough positive comments, then I will likely pick it up, it' currently sitting in my Amazon wishlist with my mouse cursor continually hovering over it.

Last month was my 'Month of Metal Gear' and I never published a recap, mainly because the blog editor went crazy on me as I tried to publish the Band of Bloggers article and my retrospective of Metal Gear solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Anyhoo, below are the links to all articles regarding my month writing about this fantastic videogame series, which basically took the form of a load of retrospectives and a review. To all my followers, thanks for reading my blog, and all people who have commented on my stuff, thankyou I really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to drop a message or two.

About n0signalone of us since 2:01 AM on 10.06.2014

Videogames have come a long way since the 8-bit and 16-bit days of old, and it is now one of the most interesting and constantly-evolving storytelling mediums. I started blogging about videogames a few years ago because I am very passionate about certain experiences I've had, which I don't think could have existed outside of our unique hobby, and I wanted to share this with other like-minded people on the internet.

I'm based in the UK and my favourite videogame of all time is probably still Shadow of the Colossus, but other more recent games such as the impeccable Dark Souls and Journey have given it a run for its money. My other interests, and things I have blogged extensively about, are board games and Japanese anime. I've got a degree in Media Communications and Film, and I'm currently a Teacher of ICT.

I post fairly regularly on my personal blog at https://n0timportant.blogspot.co.uk/, so please visit there for legacy videogame reviews and articles on anime, boardgames, etc.
