Uncharted 2 comes out next week, and we spoke to the actress who plays Chloe Frazer

Actress Claudia Black has a loyal following from sci-fi hits like Farscape and Stargate: SG:1, as well as games such as God of War, Conan and Crysis. The Australian actress made her leap into the world of performance capture working with Sony and Naughty Dog on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. She took some time away from the set at Hollywood's House of Moves to talk about why Uncharted appeals to female gamers, and how video games have changed the landscape in Tinseltown.

What's it like playing Chloe Frazer in Uncharted 2?

She's a lot of fun to play. She's incredibly relaxed and irreverent. Chloe is Indiana Jones with nice hair. She's way hotter than I am. I love it, but I keep asking the boys to make my boobs big, because I figure if they're going to create me from scratch, apparently you can improve on perfection. Just kidding. They say that the more they see us on screen, the more the animators make the characters look like us and I keep telling them not to because I really love what they have done with my character. And Drake is so hot. It's such a shame that he doesn't really exist, because I think I've got a bit of a crush on him.

Another week at the top for Gold and Silver remakes.

October 30, 2009 - A flood of new releases last week didn't phase the Media Create top three in the least bit. For the week covering 10/19 to 10/25, Pokemon Heart Gold & Soul Silver, Wii Fit Plus, and Friend Collection continued their dominance, with Friend Collection inching closer to the 1.5 million mark.

New releases for the week included Rune Factory 3, Forza Motorsport 3, FIFA 10, and Dynasty Warriors 6 Special. While FIFA did place in the top 10, the real star of the Japanese soccer season will come in November with Winning eleven.

Here's the top full top ten, with life to date sales in parenthesis.

Sequel sells three times original in debut week.

October 23, 2009 - The big mover and shaker in the Japanese sales charts this week is a Western title. Uncharted 2 debuted for the Japanese PS3 last week. Backed by a full localization and a reasonably sized marketing campaign, the game managed to sell 54,000 units in its first week according to Media Create.

While 54,000 units may not seem like much for a game of Uncharted 2's caliber, it is more than three times the first week's sales of the original. In our tours of Tokyo, we saw sellouts in a number of locations, an observation that Media Create echoed in its analysis. Aside from Uncharted, the top ten chart was mostly older titles. Here's the full list covering October 12 through October 18.

Nintendo software tops the charts once again.

October 16, 2009 - Media Create's Japanese sales charts are starting to get predictable once again. The mix of Pokemon, Wii Something Something, and the occasional long legged original Nintendo creation have become a common pattern.

Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey debuted last week and grabbed third place. With 97,000 units sold, its first week total was far higher than January's Devil Survivor, which managed 55,000 units. Further more, Strange Journey sold 82.65% of stock, with some stores seeing sellouts. Perhaps we can expect it to return in next week's chart as well.

Aside from that, Wii Fit Plus and Pokemon continued to dominate at retail. Heart Gold and Soul Silver continues to sell out of stock. Wii Fit Plus continues to outpace its predecessor.

Accompanied on this quest by allies both old and new, Drake is forced to confront crises of loyalty and betrayal within an underworld of smugglers and thieves.
