This week we’re doing the Uncharted 3 spoilercast! Though we do start with a bit of news for those who want to hear that, as well as the secret word, seeing as we didn’t want to keep anyone who hasn’t played/beaten Uncharted 3 from getting points.
Listen to FooBear, Tosh, and I talk about our favorite moments of Uncharted 3 as well as our thoughts on how the series has evolved over time.
For those of you who don’t want to have anything spoiled, but still want points, stop listening at the 11:10 time stamp, OR ELSE! You’ve been warned! And for those of you who want to comment on the podcast please be sure to put a “SPOILER” break in your post if you’re commenting on your favorite moments in the game, as not to ruin it for everyone else :).

Here’s a list of some things (or everything) we discussed:
There has been an ongoing discussion on many forum sites like this one at Neogaf about the wonky controls, dead zones etc of Uncharted 3’s single player game. Right now on Youtube you can find several videos comparing Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3.
Essentially the complaint is that there are increased dead zones that disallow you to smoothly transition your aiming on diagonal planes and that there is increased lag as well. These claims are valid and many videos have proved just this.
Naughty Dog at first defended against the claims saying that some tweaks were implemented and that it wasn’t a glitch until they were convinced by passionate gamers to take another look.
In a classy move to fix this debacle, Naughty Dog invited some NeoGaf members to their studio to run some tests on the game. The gamers that attended said that Naughty Dog was very open and concerned about this problem and were dead set on correcting it.
The end result is we will now be receiving a patch that will correct this problem as well as some other tweaks like motion blur issues currently found in the single player campaign.
Without a doubt, Naughty Dog is one of the most respected developers out there and deserve nothing short of praise.
Exciting new talent, Kirk Spencer has been commissioned by Sony Computer Entertainment to remix the soundtrack for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – one of the most hotly anticipated titles of 2011 – exclusively on PlayStation(R)3. The tracks have been made available to fans to listen and download from Kirk Spencer’s SoundCloud page.
Speaking of the project Kirk said:
“Uncharted 3 looks like one of the best action games I’ve seen in a while. It’s a game that I would take a day off just to complete. To be asked to work with the music from it is such a great feeling because I’ve grown up playing PlayStation Games.”
“I wanted to make the tracks follow the action packed theme of the game and be quite cinematic. It was hard at first because I wouldn’t usually be thinking too much about visuals but as soon as I saw the trailer I knew what direction I was going to take. I’ve given them my twist which is quite electronic and hopefully people will like what I’ve done with them.”

It all started about a year and a half ago when Naughty Dog and Sony started promoting Uncharted 3. The company gave away promotional items through conventions and expo’s such as PAX EAST, E3, San Diego Comic-Con, PAX PRIME, and until recently New York Comic-Con. Now these promotional items were T-shirts and Voucher codes. Each voucher code had a description describing each as “Mystery Weapon” or “Character Torso”. Early on I long contemplated what these PSN redeem codes would be however now that the game is officially released, the mystery is revealed.
