The Last of Us: Part II
« on: December 04, 2016, 06:16:26 AM »



Neil Druckmann confirmed via the panel that you'll be playing as Ellie in the sequel.

Trailer is actually a year and a half old so work on the game has been made since.

I loved TLOU, but I thought naughty dog said they were finished with Ellie and Joel's story.

I don't recall them saying this? I do know they said they're done with Nathan Drake.

Fair enough, going by their Panel, they were thinking for months on what the story could be about that would be a worthy successor to Part 1 and they apparently finally found a story that they hope will do the game justice.

Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker both speak like they love the characters though, with Troy saying it's the best ending to a game he's ever seen.

Spaz thought TLoU was awesome. A PS3 game with almost next-gen quality. I don't care much for Ellie. I tried to kill her regularly. I just want Zombie murder death kill with fungus!

Never finished the first despite getting it on PS3... didn't even open it before trading the PS3 games towards the PS4... and then I brought the remaster on PS4 and got about halfway through (or so I'm told by a mate that's obsessed with this game) and just kind of got frustrated with the mechanics of the game.. maybe I should go back and try again some day

I'm calling it now. Game of the year, whichever year it's released

What did you find frustrating about the mechanics?

Probably the best game I've ever played. Mostly for the emotional connection to the characters and the story telling.

More the controls felt clunky.. i think at the time I tried to play it I was bored with the genre and for all the hype about the story it just didn't catch on with me either and just left me feeling like I was playing a game for the sake of it.

It's still probably right up there on the top of my pile of shame, and aside from the fact that my best mate borrowed my copy about 6 months ago and hasn't returned it as he's played it through 3 times, I might've actually played it again haha

Same, they hit you right in the feels. I remember tearing up in the beginning
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
.. that was the first time a game made me feel emotional

I'd agree too... one of the best games for me.

Also one of the very few I was happy to play through multiple times (and get the platinum as a bonus)

Totally agree, and something I like about the later Naughty Dog stuff, they don't get tied up in their whizbang game engine and forget to tall a story.... Looking at you Ubi!!!
