Don’t forget about the “Deception” part
So Uncharted 3 is about a week away and the excitement is being built by the hour. Reviews of the game so far have been outstanding and almost confirms this years “Game of The Year” award is going to be one of the hardest ones to give out — ever. As it seems this will be one of the strongest fourth quarters in gaming, with Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3 and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim not even out yet.
But back to Uncharted 3 and it’s build up, we’ve seen trailers, giveaways, demonstrations, betas, more betas, events, commercials, codes, reveals, previews and even now reviews of the game (look it up in our search engine if you missed any). As we wind down to the games release though we might be missing one important thing.
“THE DECEPTION PART”. After all it is called Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception right? While getting caught up in all the beauty of the graphics, explosions, and set pieces we might have overlooked the little fact that Deception will play a role in this game. But the question is who will deceive? Will they go “captain obvious” and be the lead villain? Will it be one of Drake’s own entourage — Chloe, Elena, or Sully — oh no not Sully!!! — that would be tragic, although they did flirt with it a bit in the original Uncharted. Or will it be the great hero, Drake himself, would Naughty Dog allow their prized — famed character, the Darling of Sony’s franchise to be portrayed in such a light? Here’s one gamers might not be thinking about what if everybody deceives everybody? Picture the fun mess that would be…that might not be far fetched either because remember they’re hunting treasure and it’s nothing for people to get greedy and turn on each other. I don’t know how this will all play out but I tell you all this makes for great TV — or in this case GV, (hey I just made up a word GV– Gamervision) with plot twists and surprises that could potentially turn the gaming world upside down.
(Pictured — Sully, Drake’s longtime friend and mentor, Does this look like the face of a deceiver?)
So while all the hype is out there, here’s hoping sales match, (crossing my fingers) make sure we’re “getting the game” but not “forgetting the name” because after all DECEPTION is the “name of the game”. Who do you think will be the “deceiver”? CCU wants to hear from you.
