Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009)

Among Geeks




There really isn't enough space to talk about Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2, the (spoiler alert) fantastic sequel to Nathan Drake's first adventures through the (spoiler alert/debatable conclusion) wendigo worlds. This game sees Naughty Dog and writer Amy Hennig at their utter strongest with plot and pacing good enough to keep even Will satisfied, right alongside so many millions of movie-style-game-hungry players that have played it since, so much so that you can now get your grubby hands on the PS4 remaster 3-pack - for all the peasants who weren't into these games back when they were cool on that weird 8-core PS3!

We talk a lot this week about plot and the femininity and feminism of both Chloe and Elena and we duke out who is the cooler of the two. There are no winners, as usual around these parts. We also discuss mysterious absences through the plot, iconic scenes, the train scene, Transformers spoilers, and, of course, everbody's favorite segment, Will's Gripes(tm).
