Earlier this week the trailer for Naughty Dog’s long awaited game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was finally released.
As per, the award winning game developer did not disappoint with the trailer hitting all the right marks for fans. Except there was a slight problem with the trailer’s content, more specifically it turned out some of the footage used was from another game.
Accusations ran riot on social media until Naughty Dog themselves admitted that they had indeed used some artwork from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. The detail had been spotted by Ubisoft employee Azaïzia Aymar who took to social media and declared:
“I get the ‘thief’ title now!”
Ouch! Turns out it was all an innocent mistake and Naughty Dog apologised for the error by releasing the following statement:
“In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen. We want to sincerely apologise to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”
We doubt that this ‘mix-up’ will have any detrimental effect on the launch day sales of the game.
Well this looks like horseshit!

A 14 carot gold pile of horseshit. What’s not to like about this trailer for Naughty Dog’s horror survival game The Last Of Us which looks like a hybrid blend of I Am Legend and 28 Days Later?
The plot rattles around like so:
Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who’s braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
The reason we have high hopes for this game is that developers Naughty Dog are proven leaders in the industry what with their Uncharted, Crash Bandicoot and Jak franchises firmly under their belt. We’ve always maintained that the first company to develop an open world sand box style game, in the same vein as GTA, but with an apocalyptic theme will have a runaway success on their hands.
The Last Of Us will be available exclusively for the PS3 towards the end of 2012.
Indiana Jones on rails.
Lush graphics and exciting set pieces make up for a pretty poor combat mechanic, (don’t get us started on the shooting aspect of this game). Solid plot and voice characterisations make for a heavy weight title you’ll thoroughly enjoy, even if it is a bit on the short side. This must be the first game to feature a boat graveyard.
