Uncharted 4: A Thief's End got delayed another month. It was announced today on the Playstation Blog and fans of the series everywhere are shedding tears because they'll have to wait one more month to see the end of their favorite swashbuckle-y video game protagonist.
Well, maybe not everyone is crying. Maybe it's just me. I have such a great appreciation for the series ever since the first one came out that I'm anxiously awaiting the final installment. And we can assume this is the last Nathan Drake adventure right? I can still remember taking a year off of school and hanging out with my dad (who was recently laid off) and playing every one of the games in the series back to back.
It was one of the few bonding experiences my dad and I had when I was till around the house constantly, bugging him to make coffee, so knowing that I have to wait one more month to try and rekindle that old experience is a bummer. But I'm glad to know Naughty Dog is taking the time they need in order to make sure that the product they release is top-notch.
Until then, we can watch the gameplay video released at last years E3 and get really, really excited for these action set-pieces. I know as soon as I finish writing this card, I'm going to e-mail my dad the video above and then call him to listen to his reaction while he watches all 15 minutes of it.
It's a strange thing, knowing that video games have been such an important force in my life. Like without them I don't know if my dad and I, or my brother and I, or any of my friends and I would have gotten along the way we do now. I'm truly indebted to Naughty Dog and the Uncharted series for bring me and my dad closer together. And I can't wait to try and experience the 4th installment with him when it comes out.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is slated to be in stores on April 26th, 2016
