Uncharted Finally Charted

Uncharted 4 has been given a huge amount of info in a PlayStation Blog post, with the big announcement being a March 18th release date, as many expected, placing it comfortably after Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Mirror's Edge: Catalyst. The long-awaited conclusion to the series will also have 5 different editions which, to paraphrase Chloe from Life is Strange, is hella annoying. There's a Special Edition, which contains a steel bookcase, art book, stickers and Naughty Dog Points (More on that later) , while the Libertalia Edition (Named after the colony in Madagascar, where Drake will explore in A Thief's End) will contain all that as well as a Nathan Drake figure, a load of multiplayer items and a theme. There's also two Digital Editions, but you get the idea.
Now what sucks about Uncharted 4 is the addition of Naughty Dog Points, which, as you can guess, is a bloody microtransactional currency. Now, I don't care whether it's "optional" or not (Looking at you, Metal Gear Solid V), microtransactions deserve NO PLACE in a full price AAA game. It doesn't matter whether it's in the multiplayer or single player, either way it ruins the game, makes it grindy and is no fun for anyone who doesn't (rightfully) want to fork up more money when they've already paid for the game.
Still, on the lighter side of things, Deadpool is getting re-released on November 20th for PS4 and Xbox One, so that's amazing. BUY IT
