Uncharted 3: Is Elena Now Married To Drake? Picture Evidence

We don’t have much details on Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception storyline, but it appears that Drake and Elena have gotten married after the events of Uncharted 2: Drake’s deception.

Spoiler Elert:

At the end of Uncharted 2, Elena almost died but was rushed back to the little village she’d resided in when Drake left after Chloe, and there she was revived. Chloe and Drake then had a short conversation which ended in Chloe telling him to go after the one he loves….Elena. Dirty ole Sully then made his move on Chloe. So the two kissed at the end, concreting what was once just feelings – they became lovers!

But here’s the evidence. In the image immediately below, you’ll see Elena wearing a wedding band on her left married finger. Who else could she be married to? And I’m sure Naughty Dog didn’t put something so telling in there for show.

Insomniac Boss: “Resistance 3 Will Be The Best Game We’ve Ever Done”

We've been receiving a lot of details from Insomniac Games upcoming PS3 exclusive, Resistance 3. From details that informs us of Hale's death, to the return of the popular weapons wheel from Resistance: Fall of Man.

Many fans complained about the second installment, but Ted Price, Insomniac Games boss, told the latest issue of EGM magazine, (via gamesthirst)that Resistance 3 will be the best game they've ever done.

“Resistance 3 is a three-year project and it’s already benefiting from that enormously,” Price said when asked by EGM magazine if they were taking more time with the third installment of the popular franchise.

“We took all those lessons and criticism from Resistance 2 to heart, and applied them to Resistance 3 and I think it will be the best game we’ve ever done.”

The game comes out next year exclusively for the PS3.

“We Made Most Of Our Mistakes On Heavenly Sword,” Says Ninja Theory

Ninja Theory must be excited about the prospects of their new game. Enslaved: Odyssey To The West hits the U.S. tomorrow and Europe on the 8th of this month, and I can’t begin to imagine how twisted they must feel: Excited and Nervous.

Those mixed emotions are not a result of the lack of development skills, however, because according to studio boss Tameem Antoniades, they’ve been battle scarred and “hardened”. According to him, they “made most of the mistakes [they] had to make during Heavenly Sword”.

Of the almost 3 million people who bought Killzone 2, how many would you’ve guessed completed the single player campaign? If you said half, you’re still wrong.

Resistance 3 Will Live Up To Expectations Set For It Says Insomniac

While Resistance 3 was announced, many gamers are still somewhat perturbed with the second installment. To them, Insomniac Games failed the franchise by steering away too far from what made the first title a masterpiece in its time.

Ninja Theory Boss Doesn’t Want To Insult Naughty Dog — Good Move

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was released in October of last year. Since then, the game has become a standard developers strive to attain when making their games. It’s quintessentially the best action-adventure title ever forged, and one that’s highly praised within and without the gaming industry.

Thirsty Conversations: Sunday Edition

Wow, can you believe 2009 is already going the way of the dinosaur? I can't believe it either, but whether we choose to remain in denial, the year's almost out with only four more days till 2010 comes rushing.

Here's a good question: How was your year? Was it the best, ok, or the worst you've ever experienced? Look at it this way, millions have died in 2009 alone; yet we're alive and well and have a chance to face another day, week, month, and year, be grateful.

Word of Wisdom

Never expect everything in life to go smooth, you must make room for setbacks, delays, disappointments and other negatives which tends to tag along. In essence, carry more than enough oil for your lamp so that when the aforementioned happens, you'll have more than enough to keep your path lit.

And always remember God is just a prayer away.

I'm off to Church, and I'm not taking no for an answer; please come with me.

Games Thirst Review: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360)

Publisher: Activision
Developer: Infinity Ward
Player(s): Offline 1-4/Co-op 1-2, Online 2-18/Co-op 1-2
Genre: First-Person Shooter
Release Date: (NA) November 10, 2009
Platform(s): Xbox 360 (also on PS3, PC)
Rated: Mature

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was one of most successful and highly praised FPS games of all time, so how exactly do you top something like that when the bar has been raised so high?

What Infinity Ward managed to do with Modern Warfare 2 is create a game that manages to immerse you in a way that Call of Duty 4 couldn't do as well. Unlike in other war games where the battle takes place in foreign countries, Russia brings the fight to American soil making you feel like there is far more at risk then before.

The story takes place 5 years after the conclusion to Call of Duty 4. Ultranationalists have managed to seize complete control of Russia despite our heroes' attempts to stop this in the previous game, with Imran Zakhaev now being declared a hero and martyr.

Meanwhile, one of Imran's former lieutenants named Vladimir Makarov starts committing numerous acts of terrorism against Europe and due to events that happen during the game, America is blamed for one of the largest terrorist attacks which results in Russia invading the states and sparking a large-scale war.

The story to Modern Warfare 2 is very engaging and far more intense and dramatic then the first game and while MW2's campaign doesn't last very long, the amount of jaw-dropping moments Infinity Ward managed to cram into that amount of time is amazing.

That is my only complaint about this entire game is the fact that it's story mode is way too short which you think would have been fixed considering that was one of the biggest complaints that Call of Duty 4 received.

Thankfully there is plenty to make up for it. The newest edition to the game is a mode called "Spec-Ops" which are various missions you can do either solo, split-screen or online. There missions vary quite a bit but most of them are taken directly from the game's campaign and some of them are even from Call of Duty 4.

Now let's face facts, most people went out and bought this game because of the multiplayer. Call of Duty 4 has some of the best multiplayer you could find on any console so did Infinity Ward actually manage to improve on that? Yes they did. A large amount of weapons, customizable and unlockable callsigns and emblems, larger maps and a ton more killstreak rewards including a freaking tactical nuke if you can manage to get a 25 kill streak going.

I knew when I got this game that I would be pleased because Infinity Ward hardly fails to do that so when the game managed to blow me away, I wasn't surprised. It took everything about the first Modern Warfare and made it better with new modes, better graphics, an even more in-depth multiplayer system and a far more epic story.

Keep in mind however that the story doesn't last as long as I would have liked. Playing non-stop I managed to wrap up the entire campaign in around 10 hours, which isn't really all that bad for a game as linear as this.

- Intense and epic campaign
- Incredibly in-depth and improved multiplayer
- Fantastic musical score
- Spec Ops co-op mode is addicting
- Graphics are great looking

- Campaign is once again too short

GamesThirst GoTY: Out of 4346 Votes, 3031 Voted Uncharted 2 Game Of The Year

While many websites had a full roster of games on their GoTY list, Games Thirst decided that since we're about to abandon the blogspot and go to our new URL that we would not have a full roster of titles on ours, but instead pit two of 2009's biggest titles head-to-head and let our readership choose. And chose they did.

The polls were open for two months, and over the course of that time 4346 voted; an astounding number that a lot of established websites haven't attain, and a great achievement for our humble blog. But what's even greater is the sheer amount of people who voted to give Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Game of The Year over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Here's the breakdown:

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves: 3031 Votes or 69 percent.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: 705 votes or 16 percent.

Who cares? I'm buying both anyway: 610 votes or 14 percent.


Overwhelmingly, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves defeated its competition to win Games Thirst Game of The Year Honor! A well deserved win for Naughty Dog's stellar effort. We're not the only ones who've crowned the game with said honor, many more gaming sites, the VGAs and other gaming award events have done the same. Our hope is that Naughty Dog builds on the success of the game and bring us even better ones in the future. So we here at Games Thirst solute you! Uncharted 3 anybody?

Important: We're Preparing to move to our new home, go here for more information.
