This is the coolest fucking game ever, I've played it probably hundreds of times over and never get sick of it!

Uncharted 3 - I'm up to chapter 10, and so far it's a great technical showcase, but the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. The story is a great Indiana Jones-esque tale, as usual. Sully and the gang are all back, with a few new characters thrown in the mix. The environments are spectacular, and they really nail the look and feel of a great adventure story. The graphics overall have been tweaked and improved, right down to the fine detail on Sully's five o'clock shadow as well. It's a damn pretty game, no doubt about that.
Where I've always felt the Uncharted series has stumbled, is in the gameplay, and this is no different. The character animations are so finely tuned, that Drake can be a handful to control at times. Sometimes you just want to run forward, but Drake is too busy trying to get into his "touch wall" animation, that it can become a chore. Basically, Drake controls like a drunk at times. The gunplay is as flawed as it's always been. Some headshots don't register, some guys take ten bullets to put down, others take two. It's just not very refined. Melee combat has been improved, and has a Batman AA feel to it, but not as polished. It's fun to use, when your back is against the wall, but so far the only room where it seemed neccessary is the first scene of the game.
Platforming and exploring the areas haven't changed much, and I guess that's my problem with the franchise as a whole. It's the same game as it's always been, with a new coat of paint. Find an area, scale the wall into the area, shoot the bad guys, solve a puzzle and escape. It's fun and all, but this game has done nothing to shake my feelings that the Uncharted franchise is a tad overrated. Nathan Drake ain't got shit on Batman.
My daughter wanted to play some more Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster today. The thing is, is that she wanted to play and play and play. We ended up playing for just over 6 hours straight with nothing more then 3, 10 minute breaks. My entire body feels like a gelatinous mass. Kinect games arent over strenuous but hours upon hours of arm/leg/body motion really adds up. At least I knocked out all of the achievements except two.
