''Uncharted 3 - Drake's Misfortune'' is a comedy series halfway between an [[TheAbridgedSeries Abridged Series]] and a GagDub. The series was created by Ian Burke and Conor Moloney near the end of 2011, who voice the two main characters. The main idea was to re-dub ''[[{{Uncharted}} Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception]]'' with satirical voice acting, but due to the [[SincerestFormOfFlattery extremely relaxed and usually ad-libbed creation process]] (which was modeled after the real voice acting in ''Uncharted 3''), this ideal is usually not followed to the letter. In short, anything and everything are fair game for humour. You can watch the theatrical trailer [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8HuHAzpaE0 here]], and all videos will be released on the ''[[http://www.youtube.com/user/DrakesMisfortune Drake's Misfortune]]'' youtube page.

The series is an AffectionateParody of the Uncharted series and gaming as a whole, but the humour commonly strays into other territories such as movie references and [[ClusterFBomb Cluster F Bombs]]. As the main cast are all Irish, this can stretch believability because usually [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent they don't even try to fake an accent]]. It gets worse when they actually do try. The voice acting usually keeps in character but explicit references are made very often, to the point where there is NoFourthWall.

The script contains a ridiculous amount of profanity, thanks to the voice actors' habit of swearing at least three times per sentence. Even though the content is usually SFW, the way it is delivered is very, very [[NotSafeForWork NSFW]].
----
!!This series provides examples of:
* TheAbridgedSeries: The raison d'etre of ''Misfortune''.
* AffectionateParody: You can tell that all the actors secretly love ''Uncharted 3''. Under all the profanity of course.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: None of the characters remain true to their original incarnations in the game. See AuthorAvatar below.
* ArtEvolution: After the first episode, the team acquired better mics, better editing equipment, became more organised and doubled the cast of voice actors. New episodes are still ridiculously late though.
* AuthorAvatar: The characters are very much based upon their voice actors, albeit with highly exaggerated personalities to suit the original character's persona. Make of that what you will.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Almost every second sentence, someone will drop character to wonder at the nature of the world they find themselves in. The rest of the cast will hurriedly shut them up.
* ClusterFBomb: '''All''' of the cast, although Nate and Sully take the cake.
* DeadpanSnarker: All of them. Nate is the worst offender here.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Ian has gone on record saying that 'the first episode is atrocious, please move on to the second'.
* EditingWorks: Par for the course for an [[TheAbridgedSeries Abridged Series]]. All the footage is captured in-game, before being edited together with the voice clips. None of the voice clips from the original game remain, and even the soundtrack doesn't always remain true to the original.
* GenreSavvy: Everyone's aware that they're in a game. [[BreakingTheFourthWall They do their best to hide it though]].
* LarynxDissonance: The entire first episode was done by Nate and Sully's voice actors alone. [[BlatantLies It's not noticeable at all]].
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Nate does this to a brute near the beginning, then immediately follows it with a WhyWontYouDie
* ScheduleSlip: Episodes tend to turn up extremely late, despite promises of a bi-weekly release date. The second episode was posted more than three months after the first.
* TalkingToHimself: Nate's voice actor is the same guy that has to edit the footage together. As such, some voice clips go missing so he has to improvise. Sometimes it's not noticeable, other times...well, the first episode.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Nate and Sully like to play this one straight and invert it completely on a regular basis.
* VocalEvolution: The standard of voice acting (while still silly) is noticeably higher in the second episode.
