  1. Holy fuck, this game is fucking hard! I am now playing it on easy but I've still died about 20 times on the village level where the tank is chasing you. I admit I was listening to a podcast at the same time so couldn't hear the sound properly, so couldn't always hear the direction shots were coming at me from, but still, it's fucking difficult, so much for easy mode! I think the guys at Naughty Dog need a fucking dictionary to look up what the word easy means. There is no way that having a tank constantly shooting you with a high-calibre machine gun and shells so that you can't remain behind any piece of cover for more than a few seconds, as well being surrounded 360 degrees by a ridiculous number of snipers and guys with rpgs on distant rooftops so that you are almost always being shot from behind whichever way you turn, as well as having numerous guys well hidden behind cover firing on you with machine guns, as well as having guys running up to you and meleeing you, can ever be described as easy. It's fun but only because the graphics are so good, if the graphics and production values weren't so amazingly good I'd have given up on this game a long time ago because I really don't like being surrounded by 50 snipers, 50 rpg guys and being shelled constantly by a fucking tank, and on top of that regularly being surprised by some guy running up and meleeing me or shotgunning me in the face. I don't really know what else they could do to have the intense combat experience they want. Maybe lose the tank, I think the combat was a lot of fun and nice and intense but also not too difficult before the tank came along. Having the tank just made it a bit too fucking difficult and frustrating because you can never stay behind cover when it is shelling you, even behind indestructible cover it damages you.

    Anyway good game but easy isn't easy at all. Or do other people not find it that hard? I admit I got past the tank more easily when I was playing on normal, maybe because I was paying more attention and wasn't listening to a podcast at the same time. But surely the whole point of easy is that you don't have to put the same amount of effort and concentration in? (I know there is a very easy mode but it turns on auto aim and I don't want to play with that as I'm trying to improve my aiming with a controller for when I play multiplayer).

    Did you not play Uncharted 1?

    I beat the game on hard, and sure the tank area is pretty hard, but once you learn where these guys show up from, just take them out quickly (especially the rpg guys) and keep moving. Keep moving up through the buildings because the tank scene is quite long. Don't try and stay behind cover if the tank is shooting the cover because it won't help. Only attack the tank, when you get an RPG (usually from killing the guys shooting at you with RPGs).

    I played Uncharted 1 a couple of time so I was used to Uncharted 2 combat, that is why I found hard pretty easy. The only hard time I had was on the last couple of levels because of crazy bullet spunges.

  2. what?


    This sucks! Oh well, I have enjoyed the forums and will continue to do so...

    What needs my Thumbs for it's honored bones

    The labor of an age in piled stones?

    Or that it's hallowed reliques should be hid

    Under a starry pointing pyramid?

    Dear son of Memory, great heir of Fame,

    What need'st thou such weak witness of thy name?

    Thou in our wonder and astonishment

    Hast built thy self a livelong monument.

    For whilst, to th' shame of slow-endeavoring art,

    Thy easy numbers flow, and that each heart

    Hath from the leaves of thy unvalued casts

    Those Wizardly lines with deep impression basked,

    Then thou, our fancy of itself bereaving,

    Dost make us marble with too much conceiving,

    And so sepulchred in such pomp dost lie

    That kings for such a tomb would wish to die.

    (With apologies to Milton, Shakespeare, and Space Asshole)

    I approve.

  3. Nah, that's almost required. Some of the weapons are rare enough that I sisn't get the trophy for them even after three playthroughs. Or it could just be that I'm a whore, too.

    I msged you last night to play some MP but you didn't reply.


  4. Interestingly though, despite all this variation and shit I still feel like I need to play it the same way I played the original: in short bursts. If I play more than like two or three chapters at a time I start to get a bit disinterested, whereas if I make a habit of putting it down and coming back later or another day I seem to just enjoy it a lot more.

    Yeah, good game.

    I'm totally opposite, I wanted to play more and more, I only stopped because I had to sleep and I had work the next morning, but if I didn't need to work I would have played the game in 1 run, until the boss battle which was annoying because it was different from what I've been doing this whole game.

    Definitely. I played a good deal over the weekend, and it's a blast.
    Yes, and YES!!

    Guys add my PSN (kosluftar), maybe I'll see you guys online.

  5. Beat the game a couple of days ago. I really loved it, I think it has the best pacing of any game that I have played. I enjoyed everything except for the last boss battle.

    Anyone else finished yet?

    We should set up Uncharted Thumbs multiplayer sessions.
