Many PS4 gamers went wild when they heard their Uncharted adventures would continue with Chloe and Nadine in The Lost Legacy last year. The initial disappointment of the DLC not following our beloved Drake was quickly followed by excitement at a fan favorite and rather badass character making a return. At the time we didn’t know why Chloe and Nadine were chosen, but thanks to PlayStation Blog’s Sid Shuman we do now. Mr. Shuman recently sat down with a few minds over at Naughty Dog and specifically with Creative Director, Shaun Escayg.

He revealed that Chloe was revisited because the team saw her as an interesting character with a darker moral compass compared to Drake. “They’re both treasure hunters. Drake has a bit of a hero complex, but Chloe looks out for number one, first and foremost.” Nadine makes an appearance because Chloe would need someone with military expertise to attain the Tusk (the treasure currently sought after). It just so happens that Nadine fits that role in particular because of her actions in Uncharted 4. She’s in need of work and desperate.

If you haven’t played the fourth Uncharted entry, skip to the next paragraph now! Nadine was the leader of an efficient mercenary group called Shoreline. They were hired by antagonist Rafe to help him find Libertalia. Long story short, Nadine was getting fed up with the defeats she was given (although not in combat that’s for sure) and was tired of wasting resources. She was going to take Shoreline and leave, but Rafe paid her group more money then she ever could. Of course, Nadine trapped Rafe into a 1 on 1 battle with Drake when she could and left.

Escayg also explained how these two opposites would attract and benefit from one another. “They’re opposites. Chloe is spontaneous and impulsive, where Nadine is by the book, structured,” Escayg explained. “That made for a good pairing.” Plus, their roles have been swapped as Chloe is running the show and Nadine is the hired gun instead of vice-versa.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is expected to drop later this year, but as to when is anyone’s guess. However, we have been informed the standalone expansion will be longer than Last of Us: Left Behind and shorter than Uncharted 4. Is anyone really that surprised by the latter though? Hit us up in the comments below on your thoughts about two badass female characters teaming up. Anything you’re looking forward to specifically? Let us know!

Feeling a bit buzzed The Last of Us Pedro Pascal from HBO wins SAG Award

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
