Power Button - Episode 67: Nate And Sully's Excellent Uncharted 3 Adventure
November 04, 2011
When Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan embark on a new adventure, you know that the Power Button team will be there. This week on the podcast, we dream equally about the new Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception for the Sony PlayStation 3 from developer Naughty Dog. We go easy on the spoilers as we discuss the game's opening scenes, control changes, vivid set pieces, intriguing story points, relative length, and so much more. All of that leads us into a conversation about the changing role of video game review scores and the continued Metacriticization of the industry in the wake of angry fans furious over scores of a "mere" 9.5/10 for Uncharted 3. It's 55 minutes of exploration in the burning sands, and by the end, we've saved video game reviews forever.
