Naughty Dog fleshes out its main female characters in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Naughty Dog is pulling a mind trick on its fans with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Its heroes are two women who weren’t exactly on the side of good in the previous games in the series.

Nathan Drake hung up his grappling hook at the end of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as he finally retired from Sony’s award-winning Uncharted action-adventure series. But developer Naughty Dog isn’t done with the thievery of the Uncharted universe yet, and it is launching Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on PlayStation 4 on August 22.

The game stars Chloe Frazer, a treasure hunter who made her debut in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Nadine Ross, a mercenary who gave Drake a lot of grief in Uncharted 4. While they were sidekicks in the previous games, this title will flesh out the characters in a much bigger way. And so Uncharted, which was often accused of

Hands-on demo of ‘Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’ is both a return to …

The developers at Naughty Dog went into Uncharted: The Lost Legacy with every intention of making a simple add-on to last year’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. That didn’t happen.

What they delivered instead could only be the feat of the single most obsessive storytellers in all of big budget video games.

Rather than an add-on, the venerated studio accidentally made a whole other, 10-hour long standalone game. And if the 45 minute preview I played was any indication, it’s one that feels unlike any Uncharted title that came before it. 

“We tend to do that,” said director Kurt Margenau. “It’s just that Naughty Dog mentality. We want everything we do to be bigger and better than the last thing we did.” 

After seeing just how far that one-upmanship took them, I can understand why Margenau sounded

Jane Fryer: Diana’s ‘naughty’ parenting may be why Harry went off the rails

By Jane Fryer of the Daily Mail

For years, we’ve watched as Prince Harry has tried (and often failed) to square his royal duties and responsibilities with the seemingly relentless pursuit of fun and excitement.

It now seems that Diana might, inadvertently, be to blame.

“She was one of the naughtiest parents. She would come and watch us play football and, you know, smuggle sweets into our socks,” he says. “One of her mottos to me was: ‘You can be as naughty as you want – just don’t get caught!’.”

Which is all very well when applied to illicit sweets, practical jokes and secret incognito trips out of Kensington Palace for a burger or to the cinema.

But it works less well for a rudderless and reckless teenager for whom ‘naughtiness’ constitutes under-age drinking, cannabis

Speeder on Santa’s naughty list

Police say it beggars belief that a motorist was allegedly clocked at 175km/h in the Mid West yesterday.

Mid West Gascoyne District Superintendent Mike Bell took to Twitter to praise Cue police for responding to the incident.

“175KPH in a 110KPH zone – it just defies belief!” he tweeted.

“@Cue_Pol keeping this driver safe and any road user in their vicinity.”

The 51-year-old Newman driver and his two adult passengers were pulled over on Great Northern Highway, about 30 kilometres north of Cue, about 1.30pm.

Asked to give a reason for his speed, he allegedly told Cue police: “I’m sorry, I was talking.”

Police charged the man with reckless driving and issued him with a surrender notice to have the car impounded for

In Bowie Community Theatre’s latest offering, Nana’s Naughty Knickers, Sylvia Charles (Shelley Rochester) is a modern-day New York widow who has a pretty big secret. When her granddaughter Bridget (Olivia Knoche) arrives to spend the summer with her between semesters of law school, Sylvia is desperate to keep Bridget from learning the secret. Not gonna happen.

In the opening scene, Bridget arrives at Nana’s apartment with helpful – and clearly smitten – neighborhood cop Tom O’Grady (Randy Lindsay), who is valiantly struggling with a couple of large, heavy boxes. Bridget is appalled to learn that Officer O’Grady is on very friendly terms with Nana and is not at all sure she approves of the
