If any of you were wondering if Uncharted 3 would somehow fail to be as exciting as Uncharted 2, well, here’s four minutes of gameplay that should set your mind at ease. A few things: ? I really like Uncharted‘s fist-fighting mechanics. they might not be realistic, but they make me feel like I’m playing an Indiana Jones game. ? As always, Uncharted looks like it perfectly meshes gameplay with scripted events for maximum awesomeness. I can’t wait. ? If you are seated next to Nathan Drake on a plane, CHANGE SEATS.

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
