Another, perhaps more nuanced result of Druckmann's dramatic process, the enemies in The Last of Us are disconcertingly human. Eavesdrop on a trio of hunters before the start of a big fight and the overheard dialogue is steps above the typical guard patter.

The hunters converse, they chat; they talk about what they've had to endure to get this far. And once they're engaged, they call out to one another and work in a team. Ambush one, and he'll scream "he's in here", grab another as a human shield, and the rest will yell at you to drop him, with genuine panic creeping into their voices. The guys you kill in The Last of Us are groups of friends. As Druckmann points out, you're no better than they are:


^^ Pretty much like Batman Arkham City then.

Hardcore PC gamer here, but i'm going to pre-order this game for a day 1 pickup.. something i haven't done in a long time for my consoles. I'm so pumped up for this game, it looks amazing and words can't describe how excited i am to play this game.

I love anything Naughty Dog and their partners touch.

SW hyped H4 AAAE and it met the hype but cows on the other hand haven't had the ba.. guts to hype a PS3 exclusive AAAE since I dunno, UC3? :shock:

Will be too funny if cows hype this one AAE as well. :P

Hopefully the game is as good as they think

It matters - and its's great cows are hyping AAAE and hope it meets the hype and is a great game but if this game flops, cows may be saying to themselves, it truly is...

#66 Posted by coasterguy65 (6019 posts) -

There's is a lot of hype for this. What happens if it flops?

HalcyonScarlet

The Cows will just say no one hyped the game, like they do when other exclusives bomb. It's not going to happen though. More than likely Kevin V will review it, and we know he's not going to flop a PS3 exclusive.

#67 Posted by MBirdy88 (8329 posts) -
Play it once, maybe shed a tear, think "omg those graphics were awesome, shooting was ok" ... shelf it for life or trade it in. Story of this game, and most console gamers.

It matters to lems like yourself buddy, in the end what matters is the score wether the game is over or under hyped. i'll be seeing you in the battlefield when the review is out. and i'll be seeing you when Gears gets AA. Feels good not to limit myself to one consle like some people and just enjoy games and laugh at the fanboys. :cool:

That's a dumb thing to say, no game deserves to be over hyped. Overhyping something more often than not leads to disappointment in some areas.

Bisoshock Infinite thankfully isn't falling into this trap and will blow everyone away when it releases

#70 Posted by nervmeister (15270 posts) -
As sweet as this game looks, I still say it has a chance of falling just short of the AAAE hype. There could be one or two notable flaws that aren't obvious from the previews but may become issues once we're playing it. That and it's GS, dude: the site with reviewers who are legendary for nitpicking.

Don't be ignorant, ( opps, perhaps I'm too late :P ) it's SW and we play that game here, so when it comes to someone saying less than flattering things about your little piece of plastic, don't make it personal, and don't get your panties is such a knot.

that's true, but some people can't control themselves so games get overhyped and all, when i overhyped games and get disappointed because i expect so much i just leave the game and get back to it later, like UC3 for example. it was still a disappointment and rushed but i really liked it and enjoyed playing it. bioshock Infinite was disappointing people with its delays so they started to care less and pretty much expected it to be a disappointment when it releases, but the new trailers and news got me hyped so i'm back on the hype trains.

#74 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9052 posts) -

I don't know what to think of this game. Some things sound really awesome in it, but other things just remind me of the painful experience I had with Uncharted 2... My biggest worries stem from Greg Miller's description of his first gameplay hands on (riddled with cutscenes and QTEs) and Naughty Dog realeasing almost nothing but story cutscenes so far (in terms of footage). It scares me that that might be their focus again because that's what ruined Uncharted 2 for me.

Eh, wasting mah time with you mister clueless since unlike you I'm certain, I've owned and played just about every name brand gaming system that ever existed pus a PC gamer as well and if you knew so much about me and my posting, you'd know that I'd have them all this gen if I had more time for gaming.

So as it happens, got a 360 April 2006, a Wii some time later but since sold it, 360 served me well for just about all my gaming needs.

Anyway, carry on with your hostilities with someone else, I'm done with ya.

no need to explain yourself buddy, your anti sony and nintendo comments and threads are enough for me to see how blind you are.

360 did indded serve you well, it got you Halo/gears/forza every year. also don't take it seriously this happens everyday in SW, we are all friends here and i hold no grudge against you or anyone, relax.

Agreed, I'm also worried about how well the survival part of this game will pan out. I like the sound of the A.I. though, but it sounds ambitious could go wrong. I hope it doesn't.

At least Druckmann isn't being an arrogant, pretentious f*ck while talking about the story this time.

I doubt it'll make me cry, beause I'm going to go ahead and guess that Joel kicks the bucket, leaving Ellie alone at the end. I guess we'll see.

Sagem28

yep, they'll pull a Walking Dead in the end, for sure.

Or maybe a reverse Walking Dead [spoiler] Joel kills an infected Ellie. [/spoiler] now that would be heartbreaking.

It's an 8.5 MINIMUM. You forgot you're talking about a strong first party developer, Naughty Dog hasn't been known to exactly disappoint, and this is the A team, the one that designed Uncharted 2, not 3.

Are you actually taking this guy seriously? He's known for his furious hatred towards anything Playstation.

That's how all the Uncharted games are and this looks just like it. Just can't understand gamers who prefer presentation to actual core gameplay.
