Review: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (June 23, 2017)

Trailer of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. If you haven’t already, drop everything and play it today!

It took us a little under a month, but we finally found the time to finish the first of Uncharted’s quadrilogy entitled Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  Originally released in 2007, this remastered 2015 version for the PS4 was my initial foray into the world of Nathan Drake–an adventurer/treasure hunter in the mould of Allan Quartermain (Played by Richard Chamberlain | King Solomon’s Mines [1985]) and Indiana Jones yet has elements of Die Hard’s John McClane (Bruce Willis).

Unlike other action-adventure games that put a premium on “player lives”, Drake’s Fortune offers no such restriction and instead focuses on the journey of the our protagonist across 22 stages.  Gameplay is further enhanced with entertaining dialogue and a top notch musical score that plays out like a movie.

Game Day Haul: From Left to Right: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and Godzilla (2014).

Picked up three pre-owned games today–Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Godzilla [2014]–for a really good price.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (2015) | Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (2016)

I’ve been meaning to pick up Uncharted for awhile.  Well, in truth, ever since I saw this extended trailer in Data Blitz Greenbelt 1.

Here is that very same video.

Who then is Nathan Drake?

Is he part DieHard/Indiana Jones? Read more…

Superior (Issue #4 | Page #15) summary: “Chris, Simon Pooni’s best friend, is roughed up by Sharpie and his gang while attempting to take an ill-advised shortcut through “Sharpie’s neighborhood.”

As a way to join in on the collective efforts of the comic book community, I have donated this original inked Superior page (Issue #4 | Page #15) and left it with the kind people of Druid’s Keep/DK Collectibles, Inc. over at their Fort branch.

Art by Leinil Francis Yu and inked by Gerry Alanguilan, Superior (2010) holds the Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest comic ever produced as well as having the most number of creators working on a single comic.

Sir Gerry signed the piece at the Komikero Komiks Museum in San Pablo City on August 13, 2016, while Leinil added his signature during Free Comic Book Day 2017 at Filbar’s Megamall.

Review: 10th Christmas Toys & Collectibles Fair 2015 (December 13, 2015)

Clockwise: Comic haul’s include: Batman #508; Batman: Shadow of the Bat #29; Exiles 74 (New Universe World Tour); The Nam #3-#4, #6-#7, #9, & #12; The Mighty Thor #390; Spider-Man 2099 #25; Web of Spider-Man #40-#41, #43; The West Coast Avengers #3, #6, #11, #17, and #42; and Avengers West Coast #62 and #72. | Assorted Marvel Cards | Heroclix (Left to Right) Hydra Agent H, Hydra Annhil-Agent, and Beastboy (Dolphin). Not pictured are the Upper Deck Marvel Slingers Ant-Man and Giant-Man.

This year’s Christmas Toys & Collectibles Fair 2015 at the SM Megatrade Hall 2 ended up being a simple pick up run[i] unlike in year’s past.  The lines on the last day were sparse–the likely result of rolling in a little past 10 am–and I wasn’t complaining.  If you’ve had any experience in these types of events, you know the odds of being a sardine (you!) canned into a tin can are pretty high.

The Megatrade Hall eventually filled up, but by that time, I had made my rounds and was pretty much done.  Highlights included a used Batman: Arkham Origins PlayStation 3 Collector’s Edition Joker statue (2013), a MIB Troop Car from Hasbro’s Indiana Jones’ Raiders of the Lost Ark line (2008), AND a vintage The Real Ghostbusters Fire House Headquarters play set (1987)!

All very nice and overpriced.

I didn’t go home empty handed as I managed to pick up 4 West Coast Avengers comic books at P30 each, three Heroclix game pieces (e.g., Hydra Agent H, Hydra Annhil-Agent, and Beastboy [Dolphin]), several old Marvel Comics trading cards (e.g., Famous Battles: Evolutionary War, US Agent, Blood Ties: US Agent, and the Cosmic Cube schematics card from the Iron Man 2 trading card line.), and a couple of 2011 Upper Deck Marvel Slingers (e.g., Ant-Man & Giant-Man).
