Not trying to be a hater, but I'm not a fan of the Uncharted series.  I really like the idea of these games, but I find them too damn linear and frustrating.  Dying over and over again just because I'm not doing EXACTLY what the developer's want me to do is rather annoying, and really took me out of the experience over the course of the game.  I remember dying on the second wave of enemies on multiple spots just because I wasn't in the specific cover area required to avoid the onslaught.  The tank and train scenes in two nearly cost me a TV (so much rage) because I would try to move to a better vantage point to use a specific weapon and the game would just auto-kill me.  The game wanted me to stand still and use the weapon right there, and wouldn't allow me to play any other way.  Maybe I just suck at these games, but I really don't like dying over and over again on very linear paths.  I honestly found Uncharted 2 more difficult and frustrating than Demon's Souls....

Also, the final bosses in both games are some of the worst designed battles I've seen in this current generation of console games.  Seriously, we go from The End in MGS3 to this?!

And now (most likely) with 100% more multiplayer (that no one asked for)!

Yup, I was working with Dr. Ralf Gothe on the 12GeV upgrade for JLab.  My thesis was focused on the magnetic field shielding for the PMTs.

I was actually getting a Ph.D. in medium energy nuclear physics, but I fell in love with teaching while getting my MS.  Glad I made the change!

I've gone back and replayed God of War 3 to compare it to Lords of Shadow.  I agree that LoS has the better combat system overall.  Gabriel feels very responsive, and his attacks must be used against enemies in a certain way.  The only real complaint I have is that there is a lot of padding in LoS.  The game could have been trimmed here and there to make a much leaner experience.  I'm not going to complain about a product that's bursting with value, but LoS has you doing things just a bit too long, and you slog through too many packs of enemies on the way to your goal.  The game hits its stride in the castle area, but this is after a fairly forgettable opening segment.  LoS starts kinda bland, gets really great, and then sorta slides off again.  Definitely worth checking out if you like the action/adventure genre. 

Oh yeah, and that ending has me very curious....

I was hoping for three hour long podcasts every week, but the nature of RPGs (not to mention the drain on my own psyche) prevents such a thing from being realistic. 

You guys don't understand how happy I am that you all like the show.  It really means a lot to me.
