Updates to Single Player
Now you can take a look at all of those precious cinematic moments all over again with the addition of a Movie cutscene from the Bonuses Menu.
Apparently a 'Motion Blur' effect for single player was missing. Well consider that fixed, although I myself had not noticed it's absence due to the fact that I absolutely did not expect it.
You now have the ability to change up your aim settings in Single Player through the 'Alternate Aim Settings' added to the Options menu which can be found under Camera options.

Updates to Multiplayer
 Now when you set all of your controls to 'Flip Mode' in multiplayer, they will not be changed back to the default mode.

Uncharted 3 DLC: Killzone 3 Skins and Map Pack Announced

Pure awesomeness has struck and the impact is unbelievable, well at least for me. Now all of us Uncharted 3 multiplayer fanatics have a load of more content packs coming our way with the release of a Killzone skin pack today, and a map pack in the hopefully not too distant future.

      The whole Killzone implementation into the Uncharted franchise is nothing new, Naughty Dog did it with Uncharted 2 and now are adding the feature to their new release. However something has changed with this release. Now you can choose which pieces of the Helghast armor you want to wear, rather than having to prance and snap necks in full on Helghast gear but the option is still available.



      In addition to the Killzone downloadable content, on Playstation's Blog Naughty Dog announced that the first wave of Uncharted 3 map packs was on its way. Expect to be seeing this content available in the not to distant future.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Review

Unfortunately I am yet to embark on the quest with fortune hunter Nathan Drake that launched the Uncharted franchise. From what I hear, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was miles away from it's predecessor. Being someone who played and loved the second installment to the series, I took upon myself the quest to get my hands on a copy of Uncharted 3 on it's release day. Now I come to you today and say,"I have done it, Oh yes I have done it!"

Uncharted 3: RPG Kickback

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception's online multiplayer is completely fun. With all of the awesome features and customization abilities available, this game is a blast. One of the features that makes the online portion of this game cool is the "Kickbacks", which in a way are much like the "Killstreaks" available in Call of Duty. The difference is in Uncharted you earn the strategic feature by collecting awards during matches.


One of the Kickbacks is called "RPG" and it pretty much says what it does. Once you have earned 10 medals in a game all you have to do is press the "Up" arrow and you will get to use an RPG. Use it wisely though, you only get one rocket.

Uncharted 3: Speedy G Kickback

One of the many multiplayer "Kickbacks" available in Uncharted 3 is the "Speedy G" Kickback. This Kickback allows the user, once they have earned enough medals in the match, to move noticeably faster than normal. This Kickback can be activated once the player has earned 7 medals during the match and will last for 20 seconds. Check out this awesome feature in action in the Youtube video by user 'bitsofbacon'.




Uncharted 3: Creepy Crawler Kickback

One of the awesome multiplayer "Kickbacks" in Uncharted 3 is called the "Creepy Crawler" and it allows you to transform into a swarm of spiders. Check it out in the video below.


     My first reaction to the spider related Kickback was something along the lines of, "How random!" I thought that the Creepy Crawler Kickback would have nothing to do with the game whatsoever, but believe me it does. Expect to see some "Creepy Crawlers" in Uncharted 3's story mode on numerous occasions.

     This Kickback can be purchased when a user gets around rank 50, give or take a few ranks, in Drake's Deception's multiplayer. Good luck and have some fun out their with all things Uncharted.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is Amazing

The developer at Naughty Dog sure know how to deliver a compelling story and have provided proof to back up my statement with the Uncharted series. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was the first release and kicked off the franchise with an awesome story. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves followed delivering an even better story, more attractive graphics, and the online multiplayer and cooperative features. Now the third installment is here and is purely amazing.
