Brad sat down with Naughty Dog’s John “Cowboy” Bellomy to talk Uncharted tech and how far this series as come since Drake’s Fortune. I’m about 1:15 in and so far it’s wonderful. I love hearing development stories and just how proud they are of what they’ve accomplished.
Much of the technical details flew over my head but I love the passion and reverence Cowboy shares for it. Moving from key set piece to key set piece and highlighting the challenges and solutions they came up with to tackle them. I loved hearing the proxy boat trick in Uncharted 3 for example.
After watching this video, I just want to go back and replay the Uncharted games. It’s easily become one of my favorite franchises ever.
Besides fawning over Uncharted, I’ve been chipping away at Odin Sphere. it doesn’t seem to ever want to end which is not a great thing.
