The sword fight is great conceptually and fits nicely to the pirate theme of the game. Execution wise it was frustrating. I am not a big fan of games introducing new game-play or combat mechanic at the very end of the game. Like melee encounters early in the game. It is really hit and miss. You think its a quick time event but it isn't. One reasons why it could be justified is that it creates tension for Nathan to use a weapon he has not used before. Maybe Nathan and Sam should had a mock sword duel when they were kids or after they arrived to the island as a tutorial.

I understand what you are saying but I was satisfied with the ending. To me it would not make sense for Uncharted as a series to end on down note. There was an expectation by the name the title that something drastic was going happen. Maybe playing the Last of Us had something to do with it. I kept waiting for Nathan or Sam to die when I did not messed up. Or was expecting Elena to get kidnap and put in a trap to mess with Nathan.

I think that the recurring theme of the Uncharted games is that it less about the destination and more about the journey. The treasure is used as a MacGuffin. The opportunity of exploring exotic lands and facing perilous situations. In Uncharted 4, Nathan realizes that his thieving ways was costing him his marriage and his brother. After going through Libertalia, New Devon and reaching Avery's ship. Nathan and Sam understood how greed consumed people and created so much destruction.

Happy ending are not always bad. The real world is hard enough to deal with as it is. Naughty Dog did an incredible job with Uncharted 4 and will wait and see what they do next. It was nice that Amy Hennig got a special recognition in the end credits. I kept thinking that Nathan Drake would bring back an artifact that caused the fungal pandemic leading to the events of The Last of Us.

I remember seeing an ad for RTX Red Rock inside the official U.S Playstation magazine. I just look at the main character and decided that I should never play that game.

Haven: Call of the King. Nothing says earlier 2000s edgy like red hair corn rows and a chin beard/soul patch.

Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance. Showing the thong straps above the pants is too much. It's apparent that all the female character designs in Deadly Alliance were made by a horny guy.

Chili and cheese are my go-to hot dog fixtures. I know it is more of a sausage but I like the bratwurst with sauerkraut when I go to Wurstfest in New Braunfels, Texas. I am enjoying the Chicago style dogs. Maybe one day I will get the real deal when I get to go to Illinois.

You and nobody else should have to put up with that kind of working environment. You have to do what is in your best interest. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Should it be forgiven for using Comic Sans? The cover art doesn't have the same impact as a terrible politician eating one.

Waffles all the way. To me, they are easier to make and clean up. Adding fruits or chocolate chips to the batter makes it taste better.

Oddly I played FE1 and FE2 before Resident Evil and really enjoyed the games. I was looking forward to Fear Effect Inferno after reading the preview from Game Informer back in 2003. It was a huge let down when Inferno got cancelled and no other publishers picked it up. Its great that Fear Effect will get a second chance.

I do appreciate a video game website talking about thing other than video games. I agree with Jeff. They shouldn't have to waste time talking about things they have no interest in or what is popular at the moment. That is a reason why ESPN sucks as an example. ESPN has to fill up air time with useless drivel to stay relevant.

I am here because there is nowhere for me to go and 1UP became extinct.

I have a feeling that is not going happen. Considering that late 90s and early 00s JRPG are huge time investments. Random encounter grinding to level up is not entertaining to watch. You are asking for too much. The staff has gotten annoyed when suggestions for an endurance run are brought up. I do like the idea of Dan having to play a flight simulator. The time has come for New Dan to try something new and possibly suffer for our enjoyment.
