The seafaring tales of Plymouth, south Devon are quite awesum. Here are two clips from Chapter 2 of Day's Devon
You are Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake and now a modern-day treasure hunter. A clue in the coffin of your ancestor leads you to a long-forgotten island. The search for treasure turns deadly, though, when you become stranded and hunted down by mercenaries. You are outnumbered and outgunned, and you must fight to survive as you discover the secrets hidden on the island. Travel through living jungles and 400 year-old ruins. Hone your skills as you experience fast-paced gunplay, using the environment for cover and shooting enemies off moving vehicles. Or use a variety of hand-to-hand fighting moves and keep your enemies off balance!

FIORDES CHILENOS MALVINAS
Antártida Fiordes Chilenos Malvinas
Ilhas Falklands (Malvinas)
Quem não pensou alguma vez: “Que bom seria estar aí, onde assoma o fim do mundo.” Viajar em um cruzeiro, fazer milhares de quilômetros e chegar até os lugares mais distantes e lindos do mundo, hoje está ao alcance de quem quiser. Na Argentina já começou a temporada de cruzeiros, a partir da qual, os turistas do mundo inteiro poderão conhecer todo o esplendor da Antártica, sua vida silvestre, suas cores, a magia de seus gelos eternos.
Antes de atracar na Península antártica, estes cruzeiros costumam percorrer ilhas, fiordes e canais que se encontram situados entre magníficas paisagens. Durante as travessias em navio, que duram entre uma e três semanas, os turistas aprendem, de naturalistas e cientistas, conhecimentos básicos sobre os lugares geográficos que percorrem, como também sobre a flora e a fauna do lugar. Os passageiros podem entrar em contato com a natureza do litoral quando descem dos navios e navegam em botes semi-rígidos. Uma experiência única e irrepetível, que a cada ano atrai mais turistas e que ficará gravada na memória de cada visitante.
A cidade argentina de Ushuaia costuma ser a porta de entrada para a Antártica. A partir desta cidade argentina, que é a mais austral do mundo, zarpam os cruzeiros que têm como destino o Cabo de Hornos, diferentes pontos da Península Antártica, as Ilhas Malvinas ou os fiordes chilenos. Outras saídas são feitas a partir da cidade chilena de Puerto Natales.
Os cruzeiros de expedição possuem cabines distribuídas em várias categorias, todas elas com camas baixas, janela panorâmica, banheiro privativo, aquecimento, armários e caixa-forte.
Uma travessia num quebra-gelos preparado para turistas pode incluir o seguinte percurso:
Depois de sair de Ushuaia, o navio cruza a Passagem Drake, chamado desta forma como homenagem ao famoso navegante inglês do século XVI Sir Francis Drake, e no qual é possível avistar vários tipos de pássaros, como o albatroz e o petrel. Depois de uma travessia de 1000 quilômetros, o navio chega às Ilhas Shetland do Sul. Ali os cientistas mostram aos passageiros diferentes aspectos da vida dos pingüins além de poder ver de perto os pingüins Antártico, Gentoo, Adélia, e Penacho Amarelo, bem como as focas de Weddell, as Caranguejeiras e os Elefantes Marinhos do Sul, que passam muito tempo descansando na praia.
Os passageiros saem do quebra-gelos e passeiam em botes semi-rígidos entre os icebergs, além de visitar as ilhas. Enquanto navegam pelo Estreito de Gerlache, podem admirar as baleias jubarte também conhecidas como baleias corcundas. Depois os turistas visitam algumas bases científicas da Antártica, como a Base Argentina Almirante Brown, que está localizada na Baía Paraíso, considerado um dos lugares mais maravilhosos da Península antártica.
A expedição continua pelo Canal Neumayer e mais ao sul o Canal Le Maire, mais conhecido como a esquina "Kodak da Antártica". Os canais estreitos estão situados entre altas montanhas e neles os turistas podem observar geleiras e icebergs flutuando. Finalmente, na volta, cruza-se de novo a Passagem De Drake para desembarcar em Ushuaia.
Considering this is the best game series I've ever played, and certainly the most cinematic, I decided to make them into movies. I decided that I would include every cinematic, and link them by the minimum gameplay needed to connect the cinematics without creating any plot holes. Obviously to do this I had to take out certain sections of gameplay, but doing so does not have any effect on story. As I was trying to make these as close to a real movie experience as I could, there were a few guidelines I decided to follow:
1. I would try to remove as many on screen references to this being a game as possible, such as chapter titles and button or new ammo prompts. Some of these would either be impossible or would too much negatively impact the quality of the film, such as the near constant ammo OSD, or the occasional "select" prompt for drake's journal during puzzles.
2. I would try to include as much of the puzzles, in game cinematics and cinematic gameplay elements as I could. Some areas still needed to be cut to keep the movie flowing properly or, in the case of Uncharted 2 and 3, to keep the run length shorter than it would have been otherwise.
3. I tried to keep as much in game dialogue as I could, as I believe those really help develop the characters. However, as I said, I also had to keep an eye on how much gameplay I was using to make sure it didn't make things too boring or make the movie too long.
In the end, my goal was to make a movie that would be watchable whether the viewer was a fan of Uncharted or not, and whether the viewer was a video game player or not. My initial reason was to find a way to show the story of these games to people in my family who don't play video games. I think I succeeded.
However, remember that these movies WERE created from video games that are much longer when played through, so they will be quite long to watch. Here are the run lengths for all three:
Uncharted 1: 113 minutes
Uncharted 2: 177 minutes
Uncharted 3: 195 minutes
Let me know what you think.

UNCHARTED: Drake's Fortune
A 400-year-old clue in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets Nathan Drake on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
The search turns deadly when Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island.
UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves
Down on his luck, Drake is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers he had sought to leave behind. When a mysterious artifact propels Drake on an expedition to find the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala, he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse against a fugitive war criminal who's after more than just the fabled riches of the lost city. Caught in a web of deception and plunged into an increasingly deadly pursuit that tests the limits of his endurance, Drake will be forced to risk everything -- but has his luck finally run out?

WATCH THE TEASER FOR THE SEQUEL: PROJECT ZOMBIE HERE IN HD.
The story of 5 teenagers and a bunch of zombies. A short horror/comedy shot on location at Sir Francis Drake High School, by members of the 2008 Communications Academy. The project was a groundbreaking hybrid of screen and stage and gore, mixing laughs and screams and a handful of zombies into the mix of your average day at high school.
Produced as a "high school thesis film," ZHS was written, directed, shot, and edited by the then 17 year-old Matt Firpo, now a third year student at NYU Film in New York City. He directs music videos, shorts, fashion films, and is developing a feature adaption of Zombie High School for the big screen. Stay tuned and thanks for watching!

LORE - Uncharted Lore in a Minute!
Sir Francis Drake, an English Vice Admiral and second-in-command of the English fleet, was the first Englishman to circumnavigate the Earth. Having conducted many campaigns against the Spanish, he finally suffered his most crushing defeat in Puerto Rico and retreated to Panama in 1596. There, he faked his death and had an empty coffin buried at sea, containing only his diary which held the coordinates of the fabled El Dorado. He then travelled to an uncharted island where the Spanish hid El Dorado, and there he learned of its terrible curse.
In his youth, Nathan Drake, a name he had given himself, was raised in the Saint Francis Boy's Home where he learned about the voyages of Francis Drake. This lead him to attend a Francis Drake exhibit which had his ring on display. Believing he was a descendant of Francis Drake, Nathan's intention was to 'reclaim' the ring for his family. However, Victor Sullivan, hired by Katherine Marlowe, leader to a secret Hermetic order, also intended to steal the ring. Marlowe ordered her men to kill Nathan, but Sullivan intervened and escaped with Nathan and the ring, which had the coordinates of Francis' coffin burial site inscribed upon it.
The two became partners, traveling the world in search of rare treasures while still seeking the coffin of Francis Drake. But when Nathan is double-crossed and left penniless after a heist, he can no longer afford to search for the coffin. Still, Nathan has a plan to recover the coffin by taking advantage of Elena Fisher, a journalist and host of the popular archaeology TV show, Uncharted. Willing to fund Nathan's expedition in return for a story and TV coverage, the three set out on an adventure to uncover the secret of El Dorado.
