    You made me click, so... what is this game about?

    Survive an apocalypse on Earth in The Last of Us, a PlayStation 3-exclusive title by Naughty Dog (Uncharted, Jak & Daxter...). Here, you will find abandoned cities reclaimed by nature. Here is a population decimated by a modern plague. Here, there are only survivors killing each other for food, weapons, or whatever they can get their hands on. Here, you find no hope. Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US.

    Sounds cool, when can I buy it?
    It's out worldwide 14th of June. If you bought God of War: Ascension a demo is available to you 2 weeks prior to launch.

    Anyone on the forum that I can play some multiplayer with?
    Yes, several. If you want to get on this list, let me know and I'll add you. Forum nickname on the left, and PSN ID on the right.

    I want to read more about the game, does it have an official website?
    Does it... does it have an official website? Dude, it's 2013. Everyone got an official website. Especially a multi-million dollar game like The Last of Us. Here you go: http://thelastofus.com.

    Any chance of a link to their Facebook and Twitter accounts?
    It's on the official page you just asked for, but I am a nice guy so I'll find them for you:

    Facebook
    Twitter

    Any screenshots available?
    Loads. Not sure how necessary they are after those videos above, but here you got five (5).

    The film could never quite do that passage justice.
    Skerret's posting is ok to trip balls to and read just to experience the ambience but don't expect any content.

    Film was not a failure though, they captured the visuals rather well.

  • Cant find a gameplay video of this (to be fair, I didnt search that hard) but if the graphics look as good as the cutscene I'll be impressed.

    They've only released 2 trailers, the announcement trailer and this one as far as I know, none of them shows any gameplay. As it's Naughty Dog, I think we can assume Uncharted 3 graphics, and then some.
  • the 'livestock' reference reminds me of a movie I saw, but can't quite place it. I feel silly.

    Which, until they show some thing more substantial, is where it falls down for me.

  • There's a new trailer for this, apparently.  Can't seem to find it though.

  • I usually hate pre-rendered videos but that one was decent.  Nice use of Hank Williams, although the 'iconic country artist sings apocalyptic song 'o doom, here come the zombies' thing has already been done on screen.  I guess that's the point, but still.

  • If the genders (or ages, I guess) were flipped, I'd probably be more up for this than I currently am which is not remotely.

    Dunno, I was looking for the new one and found that. I don't know what to make of it, the action seems scripted to me.
  • Looks lovely - apart from the yellow glowing ladders - but obviously the test will be when you're in control yourself. If those various attacks etc are all done with normal controls rather than QTE's then that'll be promising.

    I trust Naughty Dog to get it right, although the glowing shit seemed unnecessary - Uncharted managed environmental puzzles OK without any glowing shit.

    Yes. 

    Except for the last part of that sentence, because I'm still very keen to see how the game turns out. A lot of work has gone into it...

  • Not enough to get past fucking glowing shit apparently.
  • There's no other way to handle that problem though... 

    The best attempt I can recall was Manny's attentive head movement's in Grim Fandango, but that's a completely different type of game. I'd also bring up Ico, because that waif chick did a good job of leading you around with a rather subtle rendition of dainty insipidity (like, dayum' bitch, RUN!), but again, that game doesn't look quite as dynamic as this one.

    What would you replace that glowing crap with?
