The Uncharted 2 demo is up on PSN for download now.
Mind you, it's multi-player only.

Is anyone else enjoying the multi-player demo as much as I am? Although I really suck at it...practice makes perfect.

There's a nice series of spoiler-free videos over at the Game Informer site if you haven't already seen them.

The Making of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

And if I may be especially mysterious, I may just have something interesting to share, say, around 2200 PST. What could it possibly be? You'll have to stay tuned and find out!

Please don't hate me too much.

Just a few quick snaps before I call it a night.

I'm jealous also!
BTW, here is the guide for the game online. I am trying not to read it for fear of being spoiled.

Well, they gave us a copy of the full version at the event. Both of those copies in the last snap are currently in my possession; haven't played it yet, though. I still need to beat the first game.

With that said, I played in the tourney last night on an as of yet unreleased map
called "Sanctuary". My team was knocked out early, but my compadre ended up on the third-place team!

There was some time for free-play at the very end, and I played through a large chunk of the train level. And that, my friends, was absolutely stunning!

Amy Hennig was there (Naughty Dog's creative director!), and I got her autograph on my copy of Drake's Fortune.

You are so lucky!
Yes, you need to beat the first before the second. That's what I would do.

Here's a couple more...

...pieces of errata: 1.) The movie is still in early pre-production. Sam T. (one of the game's producers) is hoping to get down to brass tacks, and have some "really cool announcements" in the next couple of months. He doesn't know whether or not it's going to be an adaptation or an entirely new story, but Naughty Dog and SCEA will be in a joint-partnership with Columbia. Which I assume'll include casting and story veto. 2.) Amy Hennig didn't care for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull either; somebody really dropped the ball when it came to research.

Did they include Plunder in the multi-player beta? That's my absolute favourite of the multi-player scenarios! The voice work is phenomenal, and the overall audio is wa-ay above what you've heard in a game before. Hearing all the audio effects piped through the theatre speakers was awesome. If you get a chance, pick up a copy of the soundtrack! It's that good.

Yeah, it's in there. (That is the one where you have to find the treasure and take it back to your chest, right?) That's my favorite, also. I played it quite a few times in the last few days.

BTW, we should share PSN ID's so we can party up.

Yeah, that's the game mode! It'll probably end up being the only type of on-line skirmish I'll get involved in; death match has never been my thing, and consequently haven't played an on-line game since the original Diablo came out. If I sign up, I'll definitely let you know!

Two more cool things from Amy Hennig. The Tibetan language you'll hear out of Tenzin is actual Tibetan, and the closeup shots of Marco Polo's diary are written in acurate 13th Century Latin.

Here's a couple of more pictures from the tourney.

So, how is the single-player game? Have you beaten it yet?

Well, by now you're probably aware of just how awesome it is. After all, it didn't get fifteen perfect scores for no reason! And, no, I haven't beaten it yet. That's going to take some time!

Picking it up tomorrow after work.

Can't wait!!! My wife's going shopping with her sister all day Saturday, so you can damn well bet I'll be parked in front of the TV all day.

I won't be able to afford the game for awhile. All of that keeping up with it during these last few months was for naught!

Dude it's only sixty bucks! That's a week's worth of eating out; surely you can forgo Jack in the Box for a week, right? To think that I didn't sell my second copy on e-bay...

Do I dare suggest forgoing beer for a week? Well, you can always check this out to get you in the mood for Brutal Legend while you're waiting!

Marco Polo: From Venice to Xanadu is where Amy Hennig got most of her source material from for the backstory to "Among Thieves", so if you want to read up on it, give it a whirl. I've got it on the shelf, and the few pages that I've read so far are quite intriguing.

Sixty bucks can be a lot of money to someone. It used to be to me before I had a steady job, but now I can easily afford it.

Good news though, I picked up my pre-ordered special edition (it's not as cool as the Fortune Hunter edition, but still) yesterday and have just finished the first two chapters. Won't say what they are to prevent spoilers, but it's a lot of fun. Two gameplay elements spring to mind. The first being the much better stealthy play which just gives you a lot more options, and the second is that you probably won't spend much time on your own this time around, but will be accompanied by one of the other characters.

And I actually loved the heist. Very cool. Reminds me of Topkapi

Picking it up tonight.

Is it sad to be 28 years old and excited to play this game?

So no, not sad, it just means you have good taste in games
