Chloe and Cutter would be my new dream team.

Making-of of U:Lost Legacy

Sam is Nate's brother. By making him the main playable character, it forces a certain proximity with old characters. They want to get as far as possible from Nathan to avoid messing around with his character more. "Why make him a guest in a future game if it's not to make him playable?!" basically.

Which is why Chloe was a perfect choice. She's as strong and polyvalent as Nate (which doesn't impact the gameplay) and while she has a history with Nate, she's not directly connected to him. She's a thief, she has her own business to handle.

As for Cassie, that could seem like an obvious choice but... I don't see it happening. The reason why Nate became involved in treasure hunting was partly due to the fact he was an orphan, so nobody to take care of him basically. He had a big amount of freedom to start adventuring and seek the treasure of Sir Francis Drake.

I don't see a girl beloved by her two parents turning into a mass-murderer treasure hunter with guns and grenades. Maybe a thirst for treasure hunting, but I really don't see her getting involved in things as big as Nate or Chloe. There is no reason (yet) for Elena and Nate to let her daughter go rogue with adventures and I don't think the players want another "survival story" where Cassie kills her first man and become "a tomb raider" (lol) to justify everything.
Cassie would be closer to a peaceful archeologist with a will of discovery (like pointed out in the epilogue) than a thief, unless things go bad in her family but then again it would force the devs to involve Nate again.

Which brings us back to Chloe being already "trained" and skilled with no attachment to the Drake family. Plus, Cutter has yet to reappear, just like Chase. I really believe Chloe is now the main protagonist. Why bother going through all the marketing and the construction of a stand-alone DLC just for her if it's not to use her character again?

Man the news that Bruce Straley is leaving NaughtyDog breaks my heart, it feels like an end to an era of greatness. I wonder how much this will affect the games to come in terms of gameplay because I remember he really emphasized making sure the games feeling that was developing on the screen was being connected to how it feels playing with a controller. *sad tear*

I don't even know how the hell i managed this!
The amount of times I just got lucky with a grenade.

Normally I'm not a fantastic player - so I'm super happy with this match. Not that I'll ever be able to do it again haha


This has been the only good match though. All others have sucked big time - like everyone dying 10 times or more.
Noobs are out in force today. I rarely see any top players (like you used to, at the top of the boards)

I am on a roll today.. maybe the opposing team was just bad lol
If I was VS more advanced players things might have been different.

Was anyone else disappointed that we didn't get to play as Nadine in TLL?

The brief split after the Sam revelation would've been a perfect time to switch the perspective and get some more time with Nadine.

Not really, didn't care much for Nadine. I'm glad we just played as Chloe the entire game

I've grown to like her. I liked her as a villian and thought she was kind of a ***** in L.L
She grew on me though.

Another kick ass match hehe

No.

I like Nadine a lot but I preferred Chloe being the clear lead character and playing everything from her viewpoint.

Just finished The Lost Legacy and... wow. It's by far my favorite Uncharted game. I loved everything about it - the storyline, the environments, the banter between Nadine and Chloe, the open world-ish vibe in the third chapter, the puzzles...

Before I played the game, I thought I'd miss Nathan and his goofiness. Turns out that I didn't. I love how they fleshed out Chloe, making her more vulnerable and sensitive while keeping her dry wit.

Continued playing UC3 on Crushing to get all Trophies, (Done UC1/2 even though UC2 still hasn't triggered the last trophy so I'm stuck >_>) and there's wayyyyy too much combat! Really shows after playing UC4/TLL which has much better pacing, and the combat is more fun with the stealth. I'm in Syria atm and it's just wave after wave!
