Re: Uncharted 3 Winter Olympics 2013 - IT'S OUT!!!

Okay I couldn't delete my above post for some reason. or even add text to it....

 

So I'm going to be honest, some may not like it, actually most probably wont but it's not like I'm going to dance around any issues I saw here.

 

Editing:

 

All done relatively well, very solid effort, bit confused why the previous record holders were not acknowledged in some way though. Plunder event was done excellently.

 

New events:

 

Some worked really well, some actually didn't. but A+ for effort and I bet these events worked a million times before a lot better than that did. Can't really do much with something when it's being done for real. So it's hard to criticize for that.

 

Okay.. Now.. Take this as you will, it's actually meant constructively.

 

Commentary:

 

The intro sounded great, it was an intro to the event you don't expect much from this really just a little get to know the commentators style thing which was done perfectly.

 

Then the events started. If I was blind I'd be relying on the commentators to describe the action (Okay if I was blind I wouldn't be a gamer either most likely) but that isn't really the point.
 

The commentary did little to describe the action and spent more time discussing various topics such as triplewreck losing and other stuff that was completely irrelevant to the action on screen.

 

The best parts of the commentary were when nods were given to the in game action which was very infrequent and must have happened for a total of possibly one minute in a 20+ minute video.

 

I don't know if someone wrote a script, it didn't sound like it, it sounded like total rushed improvisation of some sort and totally did not work.

 

Apologies if it sounds really harsh or critical, I just couldn't stop thinking if they were commentating on an NFL game or something, if there was a touchdown, I'd probably never know as some other ulterior discussion was seemingly more important to the in game action which wasn't really being called.

 

Overall though apart from that and some minor issues, it was a good effort but could have been great with more time spent on commentary or maybe less of the fame on commentary and someone who can do it correctly.. Hell maybe they can do it correctly and they weren't given enough time... It just didn't sound right I'm afraid.

That's okay then, I don't really want to offend people. I just want to be honest with how I feel, I'm in the middle of a prototype gaming related show and I kinda would want people to tell me if something isn't right.

 

I appreaciate the effort that went into it though, it was just those highlighted parts that caused some issues, If I was to grade it I'd give it 82%

 

While I'd give the summer one 95%

 

Still. A great effort, it's still a pretty well executed bit of programming, just could be on the same level with a little bit of graphical and commentry changes Smiley Happy

 

and pfft at people ragging on my twitter. Smiley Tongue I know I need to be there more often so I'll get followers, I'm lazy though. Smiley Very Happy

Rushed video, cheesy voice acting, lame commentary, handpicked contestants on a payroll, etc.

 

Will that do for constructive criticism? Smiley Wink

At least they are not being paid by anyone, so we can cut them some slack.

Go back a few pages, you will see the message I left regarding the 'hand picked' bull.

 

Anyway, I'd like to add a bit to the commentary thing. I kind of agree with the critisism. I wasn't sure about the route they took with the commentary, it did feel like a conversation over skype. But it was funny for the most part, I just think it's a case of getting the balance between the comedy **bleep** chat and actual action commentary. But honestly well done to them! They did a good job of making me laugh. XP
