It’s that time again. Time for a couple of hundred people to become sad and dejected while one person starts shouting stiff from the rooftops. Yes, it’s time to announce another competition winner – this time for the Special Edition of Uncharted 4 that we’re giving away thanks to our friends at Ster-Kinekor Entertainment.

As a reminder, here’s what’s in the thing:

Uc4SE

  • UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End
  • Collectible Steelbook Case
  • 48-Page Hardcover Art Book by Dark Horse
  • Naughty Dog & Pirate Sigil Sticker Sheet
  • Uncharted Points: in-game currency to unlock various multiplayer content

And the lucky human being (I hope!) who’s won it is:

uncharted4winner

Hilton Russel! Congratulations Hilton – we’ll be in touch soon to organise delivery of your prize. If you’ll recall, we loved the hell out of the game.

“Most importantly,” we said in our review, “it adds closure. There’s no cheap set-up for a sneaky sequel, no cliffhanger ending. Just the door fittingly closing on a series of great – if unfortunate – adventures. While I wouldn’t go so far as to call Uncharted 4 the greatest game that’s ever been made, it is indeed a remarkable one, and undoubtedly the best the Uncharted series has to offer.”

    Nice one. I am LOVING the game, it has Assassins Creed, Tom Clancy Stealth, Black Flag underwater exploring, Tomb Raider platforming, Gears of War cover shooting, Last of Us story telling, Just Cause grappling, GTA driving, the best facial animations EVER, best mo-cap EVER, best explosions with shadows cast on them, BEST sounding explosions EVER, best set Pieces EVER and longer than 3.5 CODs.

    10/10

    After 35 years of gaming this takes the cherry on top.

          Somewhere between Tenor & Baritone, but with training can easily hit the Countertenor notes. I haven’t had classical training in a while though.

          It’s fun. I can see why people say it’s grindy, but it’s not that grindy. Just not instant gratification really. Nice short chunks of play too. Idk, we’ll see. Probs going to go Saryn as my first non-starter frame. Just need to finish Jupiter’s boss.

            That’s how it starts. 😉

            When I logged in on Sat morning I was just planning to set my extractors, do a quick mission, then head off. But then I got a 3 hour affinity booster as a login reward, so spent 3 hours levelling & formaing gear in my happy place, and a few minutes before that expired I found a rare crate that gave me a 30 min credit booster so went on to do credit runs. And by then it was nearly time to retrieve my extractors so I carried on until those were ready. 😀

            Well I have 29 Steam hours logged, but 14 of those were on Friday while updating from the launcher. It’s so dumb how Steam counts launcher time as game time. Anyway, 15 hours isn’t bad for a weekend. But yes, this is how it starts. And I have been looking for a fun time-sink. Soon I’ll be grinding stuff for that next Mastery level and trying to farm Primes.

            May 16, 2016 at 11:12

            Then it might be fixed. Over the years I have not really had a need for farming cells, but I do notice a distinct lack of drops these days.
