Naughty Dog has released the extended E3 gameplay walkthrough from their upcoming PS4 action adventure title Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. “Our E3 press conference demo literally left Drake hanging and with good cause. We wanted to give attendees of E3 a treat and show them if Sully and Drake ever caught up to Nathan’s brother, Sam, in time. The reaction was pretty fantastic”, said Naughty Dog in a statement. “Now, for everyone not able to see it at the show, for those who missed our Twitch broadcast earlier today, or for those who just want to watch it again and again, here it is.” Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End takes place several years after his last adventure. Now retired fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, is forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. His greatest adventure will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will be careening into your living room in 2016. SOURCE

Videogame spin-off novels often get off to a running start, in that they leap from a springboard of low expectations; a depressingly large proportion of games writing struggles to deserve praise higher than ‘competent’. Having previously taken the bold decision to publish a Bioshock prequel novel, Titan Books have since put onto shelves The Fourth Labyrinth, the first official Uncharted novel.

All three Uncharted games have strong, well-defined characters; witty dialogue; breathtaking action set pieces; and, in short, some of the best writing in the industry. Though almost perfectly suited to a literary adaptation, the Uncharted series (excepting a few irritating loose ends in the third instalment) sets the writing bar surprisingly high.

So, there are a few people talking about this cosplayer who appeared at Comic Con 2012 and somehow he's done something to impress a lot of invidiuals, which either means he's one established cosplayer or he's an official "booth babe" for Naughty Dog. Anybody got the digs on him?

Guinness asked gamers to vote for the top 50 video game characters of all time, so if your favorite character is not represented in this list you probably should have voted harder. More than 13,000 gamers cast their vote at the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition website in order to create this list, and it ended up pretty much as one would have expected. Mario, Link, and Master Chief top the rankings, with very few surprises popping up in the remaining 47. I would not have expected Eddie Riggs from Brutal Legend to make the list, for instance, and Naruto doesn't seem like he should count.

Nintendo's penchant for creating memorable characters shines through, with 11 entries coming from the house that Mario built. Of course Luigi is not one of those 11. Everyone hates Luigi. Check out the full list below to see if your favorites made the cut.

1. Mario (Donkey Kong, Nintendo, 1981)
2. Link (The Legend of Zelda, Nintendo, 1986)
3. Master Chief (Halo: Combat Evolved, Microsoft, 2001)
4. Solid Snake (Metal Gear, Konami, 1987)
5. Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy VII, Square, 1997)
6. PAC-Man (PAC-Man, Namco, 1980)
7. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider, Eidos 1996)

Following the revelation of an extended trailer for the forthcoming Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception this weekend, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has published just a few new images representing the game. Alongside the original high-resolution depictions of our protagonist Nathan Drake in the desert, these new images offer hints as to what lies beyond in his latest adventure.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception sees Drake adventuring with his mentor this time around, in search of the fabled "Atlantis of the Sands." Developer Naughty Dog is promising “bigger set pieces and more explosive adventure”, and at this point we have little reason to doubt that they can deliver. Below follows the new images taken from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, officially released by SCEE today. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

Hot on the heels of the VGA trailer for ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’ comes a behind the scenes look at Naughty Dog knee deep in the game’s development.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has finally made its big debut and it’s looking to take as much of the spotlight away from some of 2011’s other big titles. While the trailer certainly did a great job of building hype, Naughty Dog thought they would let their fans take a look the behind the scenes and hear them talk about their hopes and fears when it came time to move past Among Thieves. Just released is a video that shows not only Naughty Dog’s studios but also features Nolan North in motion capture action.

In the video, members of the Naughty Dog development team talk about the praise that Uncharted 2 received and how grateful they are for the numerous Game of the Year nods they received. Uncharted 2 was certainly a fantastic game and deserved all of its accolades, but now that some time has passed it was time for the team to look towards the next entry in the series and where they wanted to take Nathan Drake.
