Royale with cheese
There’s an elephant in the room, and its name is Super Smash Bros. No matter how hard I try, I can’t talk about PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale without mentioning the fact that it’s a shameless knockoff of Nintendo’s beloved brawler. It’s so blatant, in fact, that I wouldn’t be surprised if there were high level design meetings where the team played Brawl together and had frank discussions about how much they could get away with stealing before the Big N’s lawyers came knocking down their door.

Though you may just be taking down those Halloween decorations, retailers are ensuring that you are more than ready to dive into the next holiday season. Quirky Christmas commercials have already started running, store interiors have transformed into winter wonderlands, and even those highly anticipated Black Friday deals have started to filter out. The most recent and, really, most impactful Black Friday ad on the gaming community leaked all over the web yesterday.

Naughty Dog's Justin Richmond looks back at Drake's Deception.



Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is a verified masterpiece. At Naughty Dog, Justin Richmond, the game's director, works with creative director Amy Hennig to focus on game design and actual game play for the Uncharted games. In this exclusive interview, Richmond takes a look back at Nathan Drake's latest adventure.

What were your goals heading into Uncharted 3?
We wanted to keep pushing the envelope in terms of storytelling and gameplay. We were intent on telling a more personal story about Drake, especially in regards to his past. We were trying to follow up the amazing success of Uncharted 2, and push the technological bar in terms of our graphics and set pieces to new levels. We also wanted to blow out our multiplayer presence, and do an even better job with our online offering.

So, recently we ran an article about id Software pontificating about the potential for RAGE and Doom 4 (which doesn’t exist yet, or so they want us to think..hmmm.) to take up one entire Blu-ray disk. (Roughly 50GB of data.) And we all stood there and said to ourselves, “Holy crap, that’s a lot of data..” Well, it is, let’s not miss the point here, however Naughty Dog then steps up to the plate at GamesCom this week and drops on the world that Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is currently OVER 50GB in production, but will in-fact be compressed down to fit on a single Blu-ray for release.

Arne Meyer, Naughty Dog community manager said this when discussing the details of the size of Uncharted 3, “I think it really helps. It’s not even about sales. It’s about what we can push on the platform and how far we can take it. I’m sure you’ll hear this from every other Sony developer but you know, I can’t tell you how much we’ve been able to optimize Cell and you know, the amount of content we can put on Blu-ray.” So, who knows, bigger may in fact be better, but only time will tell. Uncharted 2 was only roughly 25GB at launch, so Naughty Dog will be doubling the size for Uncharted 3, leaving Drake larger than life. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is still slated for a November release.

It's fair to say that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is an anticipated title - perhaps the most anticipated title upcoming on the PlayStation 3. It's a big responsibility developing a sequel to the magnum opus that was Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but the folks at Naughty Dog are pretty confident they have it in the bag. Co-Lead Game Designer Richard Lemarchand was able to talk to us at the SCEE booth at E3 about their latest project, and how both the single player and the multiplayer are evolving to keep players on their toes.

PALGN:Thanks once again for agreeing to let us interview you! I was hoping you could tell us a little bit about Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. We've actually just been having a bit of a go on the multiplayer, so could you perhaps tell us a bit about the new features you guys are bringing to that?
Lemarchand:
Thanks, it's really great to be talking to you this morning. We're really excited to be showing Uncharted 3 at E3 this year, we've waited a long time to unveil some of these features. And yeah, we're sitting right in front of our multiplayer here which we revealed a month or two ago, and which we're now showing a ton of new content for. We're really excited about the new multiplayer aspect of Uncharted 3.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be getting LAN support, due to the PlayStation Network snafu. Kotaku reports that it all stems from when the PSN went down, and Naughty Dog was left unable to test its 3-person co-op and 10-person multiplayer modes.

As a workaround, the developer built in LAN support and went about their testing. It's a happy ending that gets happier with the knowledge that Naughty Dog just opted to keep the LAN support in the game. If you'd like to get together with some friends and a few PS3s instead of fiddling around with chumps online, you can.

Who says the hackers never gave you anything? You can thank them, personally, when they show up at your house ready for some LAN action. Don't worry about giving directions, they know where you live. [SOURCE]
