BABY WHY DO YOU GOTTA DO THIS TO ME?
Stupid Gideon Emery and his sexy voice.
I was all like, “WHAT UP, BALTHIER.”
And then he shot me in the face.
(Having finished my first playthrough, I’m working on a post with my spoiler-tastic impressions. The short, spoiler-free version: it does a lot of things right, but the game ultimately doesn’t exceed the sum of its parts like Uncharted 2 did—in part because the writing just isn’t up to par. On the other hand, it’s far from the “fuck you” Jak 3 was, so I’m considering it a win for now.)
