Uncharted. You know you want it!

Well, here's the box shot! It's awesome, right? Well the game is obviously going to be awesome! But of course there was never any doubt in that... I know you want it! Just the boxart shows that it's awesome! Well, the demo is going to be released on November 8! I'm rather excited to finally get to play. It's November 3 right now so we won't have to wait long to play. On a completely different note, you might notice the little reference to Jak and Daxter. "Ottsel" swimwear :lol: Also, The gameplay looks awesome and the graphics are starting to look better with every video!

So... I bet everyone who has a PS3 is getting this game. We'll know just how good it is when the demo is released. Hopefully Aaron Thomas won't do the review... No offence Aaron. Well, I can definitely tell that Naughty Dog is working their butt's off on this game :D I really hope that it lives up to the hype and doesn't turn out to be another Lair. Of course this is Naughty Dog we're talking about soooo... it's going to be awesome without a doubt! More to come...

Playing Tools of Destruction Pt. 2

So, I played and beat the game in about 2 - 3 days. (I would have finished faster if my brother hadn't been playing) Something that is really fun is getting new skins. I realized that the skins actually make the gameplay more fun somehow. One problem is that there's no first person mode in this game which, if you're like me is a problem. I'm totally obsessed with FPS and I was hoping that this game would have first person mode. For some reason I do seem to enjoy the over the shoulder view. Of course Insomniac had to go screw that up by making you move very slowly when in this particular view mode...

Challenge Mode: So now I'm in challenge mode... it's actually not a whole lot different... sure enemys are a little harder to kill like always but other than that it's almost the same as before. Although the *PREPARE FOR SPOILERS!* Trillium armor is really cool! It's not as awesome as Carbonox or anything, but it's pretty kneet. I don't know if Pixar film is the best way to describe the graphics since there are occasional frame rate and graphical issues. Nothing big of course, you should always know that Insomniac is great with visuals. (Not as good as Naughty Dog of course) Of course I expected more from challenge mode. Something that seems to be a kneet feature in challenge mode is the *PREPARE FOR MORE SPOILERS!* Ryno IV. Nothing special, it's got about 1900 power once it's upgraded to V5. But enough about that. Let's get to the Holo-Plans. The Holo-Plans are actually things you collect through the game in order to get the Ryno IV. The Ryno is a bit of a rip-off though because of it's lack of power. On a completely different note, the Dan skin is ugly as ever. (Actually it wasn't always ugly!) And it creeps me out when it talks because it doesn't move it's mouth! But the Rusty Pete skin is awesome! I want a Rusty Pete plushy :) Something thats impossible not to notice is the way Insomniac shows off their levels with grind rails and launch pads. This wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so distracting! Anyway, fighting Tachyon the second time through is really, really, really, REALLY annoying! Not even the Ryno is good against him! (Well it's pretty good...) Well, I beat him anyway and got the "Even Better The Second Time!" skill point... YAY! Well, thats all. I think Ratchet and Clank Future deserves (On a scale of 1 - 10) a 7. (More or less)

Playing Tools of Destruction...

So I got my hands on Ratchet and Clank Future a little while ago and I must say, it's visually stunning! But that doesn't make up for the levels that are so far from fun. Don't get me wrong it's a pretty fun game, but it seems like playing through Ratchet and Clank 1 again but with improved graphics.

First Time Through:So I'm finally playing the long awaited Tools of Destruction... well sadly it's not as good as I hoped. Metropolis isn't bad but it seems like the gameplay hasn't changed enough. I don't know why people say it's so awesome... it seems like people are just suck-up's to the franchise and don't want to admit that it's not as good as the others. So far the game is ok but the only level that blows my mind is Kerchu City, and in a stunning move of stupidity, it isn't as long as the other levels. The game isn't especially challenging and combat get's really repetetive. There are some cool extras and stuff... such as the Rusty Pete skin. Rusty Pete rocks! But without Rusty Pete and Kerchu City, this game wouldn't really be worth playing. Not for me anyway. Watching enemys dance is kinda fun. (For the firstfive minutes) And just incase the game isn't easy enough already, you can get golden devices to give your combat devices unlimited ammo. The game DOES seem to have a pretty good sense of humor however. Okay so I'm going into challenge mode. I'll update later 'cause I'm too lazy to finish right now.
