Ugh, away from my PS3 for the next few months and dying to play this. Now my internet is refusing to download anything at decent speeds... Guess I'll watch this tomorrow.

Loved UC2 multiplayer, specifically the coop/horde modes. Really hope they expand well on those here.

Can't wait for this game :)

I LOVE GIANT BAWMB!

I was hoping for a Ryan + Vinny repeat but this is good too i guess.

Haven't got to play this for a few days but man this sure is a beta. Makes my PS3 fans kick into the highest gear it sounds like. Scares me everytime so I have to turn it off after 1 or 2 games. Hopefully this is fixed by the next time I play if it hasn't been already. 
 
Edit- They kind of went into this beta cold even if Brad already got to Level 5. The video of the 2 doods from Naughty Dog explaining stuff is also on Giantbomb and its pretty informative, stuff about power plays, buddy system, etc. Also many a Brads were pulled in this. I didn't bother counting but Brad used his grenades less than 5 times probably if I were to guess. Grenades are pretty good in this like Uncharted 2 too with just aiming where you want to throw the grenade with iron sights and just pressing L2. Or it will even show the lob arc line thingy if you hold L2 down so still good.  
 
And I've used Spiders aka Creepy Crawler Kickback. They are pretty sweet. Really fast and any doods you're under pretty much die in a second.

"Dude-adds" - new word by Brad :D

Can't believe they jammed in more magical nonsense when it was by far the turd in the punchbowl of the first two games. BAH

Air Strip. I'm just gonna bail out of this. Haha, good Quick Look :)
 
And every Tom, Dick and Harry can get in since PS+ is free.

oh man i'm so pissed off...I bought infamous 2 used to save £3 on the new version and i even asked the guy if there were any codes i needed to be aware of and he said no... Now i'm not in the beta :(

I even felt bad because i was being a cheap fucker instea of paying the extra £3 and paying the devs for their hard work. Karma i guess :(

Good luck, have Batzman

I never got into Uncharted 2's multiplayer, but I think my multiplayer games for the year are gonna be this, (Because even in beta state it plays awesome.) and Battlefield (PC)

For those who want to know (and since @Brad didn't know) Power Plays happen when one team is winning by a lot. Marked man starts when winning by 6 and killing the marked man is worth 3 kills. The winning team gets double cash while the other team has the power play. I kind of hate them since it always ends my kill streak by giving an artificial advantage.

Posted by Miketorreza

Guess they haven't made the replay mode work with the spider killstreak yet... when batzman used it his view went black until he came out of it. Really like the new stuff they added to this game, though a lot of it seemed to fly over these guys heads.

One of the other power plays that isn't in the Quicklook is double damage for the losing team.

If you have playstation plus you can download this beta in the store.

"Magical nonsense" is part of the pulp adventures stories that inspired Uncharted. I take it you're not a fan of Doc Savage or hell Indiana Jones.
Posted by StoffInator

The beta is much better than I expected.

Edited by Einherjan

Yeah, this is pretty good, though I am pretty terrible at any run and gun multiplayer. I'll probably stick to single player when it comes out.

Oh, and I like the customization features.

Actually, that IS in the quicklook.

Everything about this reminds me of why I hate third person shooters.

This goes public for everyone tomorrow, anyone know what time? I want to play!

So they stream video and use your BW while sitting at that menu? great, a lot of people including myself have bandwidth caps, better be an option to turn this off or i won't even bother with the online.

Looks neat, but all the power-up and loot drop stuff seems like it could get annoying. Trying to flesh out multiplayer and make it more accessible and meaningful to lower skilled players is an admirable goal, but the competitive games I like, I like for the purity. Things in here have the potential to interfere with that.

Posted by Zero_

Haha Vinny... trading in a game before you bought it...

Posted by Slumberpunch

Looks fantastic. Can't wait to see some of the single-player campaign.

That one is in the quick look and is the worst one. Among my problems with it include the fact that it applies to melee making it 1 hit kills and the fact that it can happen twice in a round since they used it to replace the cursed power play that was removed.

After having 3 streaks ended in 1 game because of power play bull shit I have decided to stop playing the modes that include the power up stuff. There is Hardcore mode for the purists who want even playing fields.
Posted by Klei

Honestly, this doesn't seem very appealing to me. Just like UC2's MP mode, which wasn't all that fun for me. While I loved the SP gameplay, I didn't think it worked particularly well in MP. 
 
Just my opinion thought.
Posted by SHADOWINFINITE

The beta has been freaking awesome, I've enjoyed every aspect of the game

Posted by Slaker117

@mosespippy: Good to know. If I get into UC3 multiplayer, I will almost definitely spend the most time in there.

Edited by Anwar

Uncharted is not in any way on a line between reality and mysticism, it's just Indiana Jones on the ps3, in the present without a hat and whip.

What's up with Vinny and Brad being confused by little things, this isn't rocket science, also watching the video from Naughty Dog explaining a lot of stuff is not hard and with the craziness of not stopping the video and redoing it, what's cool about showing that the audio isn't working correctly?

Posted by DonutFever

Wow, way better than I thought.

Batzman is a camping bitch.

Looks kinda slow, huge maps for such low player numbers.

Surely the only thing that would have stopped anyone being able to get the Beta when it first started would have been if they bought their PS3 after the start of the PS3 outage.
Part of the Welcome Back package was that EVERYONE that was registered before the outage got a free month of PlayStation Plus membership, so just about everyone was eligible to download the Beta on day one. 
So I'm guessing you could have been playing it all this time!

Funny how Brad is acting like that plane level is something that hasn't been done before and is mindblowing. Unreal Tournament has a ton of maps like that.

UC3 looks awesome, makes me wanna get a PS3.

Posted by Curufinwe

Awesome Quick Look.  Brad and Vinny are a great team.

Posted by hakunin

@MoleyUK: Some countries don't get access to this even though they got PSN+ from the welcome back package. New Zealand and Germany for example.

Uncharted has multiplayer?

Just gonna take a stab here, but I'd take a guess that the video is all server side. Basically like an extension of the main menu. So more or less none of it runs off your bandwidth.
 
It's why it streams in instantly with no buffer for any of the vids, you aren't loading them. Just a guess.
Edited by Marz

@brad Powerplays are basically just powerups for the losing team to try to even out the score.
 
Marked Man is worth 2 points instead of the normal 1 point.
Double Damage is Double damage
Exposed basically reveals the arrow nametag of enemy players
 
Think there's another but i don't recall atm
