It is just a matter of time until Drake comes out of his pension

I've been playing my Vita a lot more recently. The re-igniting of my love came from a recent breakthrough of Resident Evil 3that was encouraged by my discussion of the Resident Evil 2 remake. Sony's small portable device is so & # 39; s an easy way to play classics, my God, it is unfortunate that it is being phased out and that PSVita PSN will one day be dead.

In the meantime I (literally) went through that jewel of a user interface and found an old flawed favorite: Uncharted: fight for Fortune. It is time to bring it back.

When Sony originally announced that they had previously released a card game Uncharted 4there was hell to pay. Because for one reason or another, even though a series is hugely successful and there are clearly complete follow-up steps in the works, we can not possibly give spin-offs a chance. It's a weird horde mentality that I just do not get, and here's a crazy concept … what if those suckers are good and the IP will be funded for many years?

Fight for fortune was just too damn early. This was 2012, in advancehob craze at a time when there was not a lot of crossover between tabletop players and regular old uncharted fans. Developers SIE Bend Studio and One Loop Games did not have the benefit of what developers of digital maps (DCG) now know: that means you need a lot of panache to stand out.

I had my problems with Fight for fortune seven years ago, but I still felt compelled to pass the entire campaign (this is the key: many DCGs do not even have one yet) and a few more (a 7.5 at Destructoid: that good!). It is also not afraid to get weird, like when it throws you in the pit against Sully's parrot filling Jose and gigantic bullet holes his avatar with gunshots when you attack him. Fight for fortune ended with one Uncharted 3 expansion, but can be easily recorded Thief & # 39; s End and Lost Legacy with a snazzier, more exciting restored version 2.0. What is known as the "Realm reborn treatment "is becoming increasingly popular, even when it comes to card games.

What is the best thing about Fight for fortune? The model with fixed content: you know exactly what you get. Instead of gambling on random card packages (which work in moderation, but not something that I enjoy everywhere), you pick up a complete card game with all contents intact. It is a model used by Fantasy Flight Games with their "LCG" game (living card game) and I think it's great to see that it is being distributed as much as possible in this age of dollar sign hunting.

I know it's a pipe dream, but Sony can also reboot the card game shtick with a "Sony All-Stars" concept, with PaRappa packs, and so on. Sony and something "All-Stars" related? That is not just a pipe-bus, the theme of No Chance in Hell & # 39; Vince McMahon played magically in my office when I wrote this.

But it is a thought.
