When it was originally discovered that a card game based on the exploits of Nathan Drake was being made, I don’t think anyone jumped for joy or even really cared. Uncharted? Card… battling? The truth is that descriptors like “swash-buckling”, “handsome”, and “action-packed” are entirely antithetical to anyone’s sane perception of a card game.

That remains true today as Uncharted: Fight for Fortune fights for space on your PlayStation Vita. If you’ve played a lot of card games, Fight for Fortune might feel like an odd cross between Magic the Gathering and other resource-based card-fighters. While many of you might be tempted by Nathan Drake’s handsome, chiseled mug, I’m here to reveal that the Uncharted brand and card-battling are two great tastes that should never have been tasted together.

I wish I could come up with a better descriptive term than "smoother," but that seems to be the most accurate. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception looks incredible from a visual standpoint, as one might expect. But as many have noticed, there has been a technical alteration to the character design and presentation. For example, here's a picture courtesy of GamingBolt. It's Chloe as she looked in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and as she appeared in the E3 trailer for Uncharted 3. There's also a comparison shot of Elena and we've already seen plenty of Drake in past months. In our eyes, it seems plain: they've been "smoothed" over. The thing that's bugging me is this- I really can't decide if it's "better."

I mean, strictly from a technical standpoint, I think it's plain. They've taken another step by cutting back on that glossy, almost plastic-y sheen we've seen in the past. At the same time, it almost seems as if a touch of the rich color and definition from Uncharted 2 went away with that glossiness. It's certainly more realistic and more accomplished; I'm just not sure I like it more. Sorta torn right now. You also get slightly different facial animations with this sleeker style, and in this respect, I haven't seen enough to make any decisions one way or the other. I'm just wondering what the fans have to say about this.

A recent charity video shows the first sign of Drake’s love interest, Elena, since the end of ‘Uncharted 2.’ This might be a sign that we will see her return in ‘Uncharted 3.’

It’s been almost a month since any significant news has broken pertaining to the PS3 trilogy-closing adventure hit, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Despite having already seen some rather extensive footage of the game, there has been no sign of Elena, Nathan Drake’s love interest. It was only a matter of time until she appeared though, and thanks to a charity video for Japan, the first glance at what her character might look like in Uncharted 3 has hit the net.

Although the Uncharted 3 screenshots do not come from in-game footage, the models for Nathan and Sully are identical in the charity video to their models in the game. In other words, chances are very good Elena’s in-game model will match as well. This all depends on if Elena does actually appear in one of our most anticipated games of this year.

The image above is from Uncharted 3 and the one below is from Uncharted 2.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was recently teased, officially announced and demoed too! So a lot has happened last week, so we decided to stack up Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception against Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Uncharted 2 is undoubtedly one of the finest looking games this generation and it will be tough for Naughty Dog to beat that threshold. However, Drake’s Deception looks absolutely gorgeous.

We have compared the screens for Drake, Sully, Environments and some close up shots. Do check them out above.
Also let us know what do you think in the comments below. [SOURCE]
