First of all, Happy Halloween!  From Angry Birds costumes to Halloween apps for the whole family to enjoy, it definitely seems that 2011’s fright night has received a trendy tech makeover.

A couple of weeks ago I made mention of video games and their sequels, and how Batman: Arkham City was rumored to be a more than successful follow-up to Arkham Asylum.  Well now we have another, albeit a series’ third installment, in Drake’s Deception – the latest piece of the Uncharted Trilogy.

Set to release Tuesday, November 1st, Uncharted continues the chronicles of main character Nathan Drake as he searches for legendary lost city, the Iram of the Pillars.  Uncharted is developed by Naughty Dog Studios, and is played from the third-person perspective, which differs from the popular FPS Game Design.

Like other Uncharted games, Drake’s Deception is recognized for its story-telling, and the fact that the game was created like a Hollywood film, receiving praise for its motion capture and voice acting.  Blurring the line between game and reality, Uncharted contains “real physics and environment deformation” which are “key in creating a realistic playing experience,” according to Naughty Dog’s Community Strategist Arne Meyer

All in all, a blog post about Uncharted won’t do the game the justice it deserves.  It’s everything a video game should be in terms of its gameplay, but elevates the experience to a new level, allowing the user to participate in guiding the main character through a motion picture blockbuster – equipped with amazing landscapes, lifelike interactions and a full-blown cinematic soundtrack.  With the release of Uncharted, I wonder what Roger Ebert would now say about video games being considered art.
