Now that most of the major game of the year awards have been handed out, it's a good time to post here about how much butt U2 has kicked. IGN,1UP,Eurogamer,Spike TV Awards ... the list goes on. Here's a list from wiki although it's far from comprehensive : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_awards_received_by_Uncharted_2:_Among_Thieves
Well deserved, and congrats to Naughty Dog, I played this game like it was a lifestyle choice, and I'm only taking a break from it now so that I can play some other games in my backlog. Despite all this, I still feel like U2 is like this little underdog of a game that really made it. The original was good, but no one expected a sequel of this magnitude, it's development team was much smaller than the huge crews behind something like a Halo 3 or Assassin's Creed 2, it's on a console that some felt was desperately lagging behind the other two, the game didn't have the marketing push that other heavies get...
So yeah, go Uncharted 2!
Another cool thing I just read today: http://www.joystiq.com/2010/01/21/new-uncharted-2-dlc-retail-twin-pack-for-japan/
. You can check out the pics of a few special skins like Killzone 2 characters, Infamous' Cole and Zeke, and Resistance characters! I am so into that and I'll be getting those as soon as they become available here.
