The deal with the Uncharted collection on PS4. Also, about Fallout 4...

First off, it drops October 9th.  Here, enjoy this terrible announcement trailer.

This package is launching in four months and they don't show a single screenshot or second of gameplay?  Highly suspicious.

It'll cost you, my American friend, sixty dollars to obtain.  It'll cost me seventy-five.

That's... that's not a spectacular price for a trilogy whose first and third entries languish in the shadow of Uncharted 2. We're told the collection will feature some nice bonuses like photo mode and new trophies from "the list of these improvements and additions based on countless forum posts, messages, Tweets, and even through personal conversations we’ve had with a number of you over the years," but promise actual specifics in "future updates.

Kayla and I re-watched True Lies the other day, and one of Charlton Heston's lines is playing over in my mind, at the moment.

And speaking of tempered hype, word around the 'net is people think Fallout 4 looks fugly, when it should look super-gorgeous.

And yeah, Bethesda's heroes still look plastic-y and lacking the... weight of any linear triple-A enterprise, but here's the thing.

It's Bethesda.  What the fuck were you expecting?  I'm expecting a follow-up to Fallout 3, which was never the best looking game at the ball to begin with, but it doesn't matter.  It's not Lana.  It's Pam, and if you'd honestly prefer to date Lana you are out of your mind.  It was - it is - spectacular.  A definitive experience, so let me throw that concept out there again, just for good measure.


The very idea of this should subject the entire gaming populous to huge nerd erections.  Like, spectacular, towering monuments of turgidity.

It's also going to be buggy as fuck.  What're you gonna' do about it? 

You're gonna' buy it like the rest of us, that's what. 


  1. And the mods, oh the mods, oh the mods mods MODS.

    The guy or gal that fixes the fugly will be carried out of the room on the pc master race's shoulders. Though there is no fixing the plasticyness. And I hope the facial animation is a step forward. Otherwise, as long as I can read the back of the abraxo boxes, I'm happy.

    And you know what? I think it's pretty.

  2. towering monuments of turgidity.
