‘Uncharted 4’ adds a survival mode with a few twists

Gears of War 4 won't have a monopoly on co-op survival modes this holiday, apparently. Naughty Dog is introducing an Uncharted 4: Survival mode that will arrive in mid-December. As with its Xbox rival, Uncharted will have you facing 50 waves of AI enemies as you build up defenses, rank up your character and coordinate with teammates. Don't call it an outright clone of Gears' Horde mode, however, as it periodically throws a monkey wrench into the works.

Some waves will have objectives you need to complete, such as collecting treasures or defeating specific enemies. Also, you'll occasionally run into modifiers that prevent you from relying on the same tactics every round. You may have to use only melee weapons, for example, or limit yourself to head shots. And while you will face the mercenaries that dominate the conventional story, Survival adds plenty of supernatural opponents.

This won't be a radical break from the Co-Op Arena mode you saw in the second and third Uncharted games, but it should inject new life into a title that's already on some critics' short lists. It might impact Sony's bottom line, too. If Uncharted 4 has an answer to one of GOW4's best-known modes, you might be tempted to pick up a PS4 Slim bundle when you were otherwise set on an Xbox One S.

YouTuber Casey Neistat says goodbye to vlogging

LOS ANGELES — Casey Neistat is officially over vlogging.

The YouTuber, who recently won a Streamy for best first-person show, said goodbye to his daily vlog on Saturday.

“It’s not clickbait. I really am ending the vlog,” he said in his farewell video (above), which has amassed more than 4.7 million views.

Why? The 35-year-old, who starred in his own HBO show before becoming a popular YouTube star, said he feels he's "gotten lazy on this platform."

Vlogging became too easy after he "found a rhythm." Since joining YouTube in 2010, Neistat has built a following of 5.8 million subscribers.

“When I think back to why I started this vlog, I spent so much of that time sitting here talking to you about this premise about this idea that I need to challenge myself creatively," he said. "That’d I’d gotten lazy on this platform and I haven’t been posting. And by issuing a mandate to post every single day I would challenge myself creatively in a way I have never done before. And that’s exactly what happened.” Read more...

‘Search Party’ premiere party celebrates comedy, mystery and beautifully executed dark humor

A few of the scenes in TBS’ new dark comedy, Search Party, are so awkwardly funny they’re cringe-worthy. Others touch upon more serious issues – the self-centered culture of Brooklyn’s millennial, hipster youth; the very real feeling of being a driftlessly ambivalent twenty-something; strained mother/daughter relationships. Throw in a dash of mystery and expertly executed comic relief, and it’s a winning combination.

The show’s back and forth storytelling — between serious tension and laugh-out-loud hilarity — proves an effective storytelling device.
