Katherine Marlowe and "The Waste Land"

Today marks the first time I have written about modernist poetry for GodisaGeek, and I feel it's long overdue. Katherine "Scary Poppins" Marlowe is the subject of this week's Character Select because she really serves the narrative, if not necessarily the game.

I've played Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception through four times now. Four. Twice on "crushing" difficulty. The shooting stops being challenging after playing it that many times, so clearly I just do it for the story. In fact, this was probably the most difficult Character Select I've written, certainly the one I spent the most time on. I just wanted to do the story and the character justice, really, and I hope that came across. Thank you everyone at Naughty Dog for turning out something so wonderful, you've given me many happy hours.
