The Last of Us Gameplay Demo - Jimmy Fallon Video Game Week

DualShock Nexus: The Last of Us was featured today on video game week. Many, including myself, anticipated the 17 minute extended private demo as the result of a misleading tweet by PlayStation. They tweeted about seeing a secret demo tonight on Jimmy Falling, but instead we got more of the same from Sony's press conference. In case you missed game week tonight and wanted to see the footage anyways, read on. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

I have to disagree with him in Taxi. It was ok, but the chemistry between him and Queen (Latifa)? just wasn't there.

Bringing down the house was much better.

But I like Jimmy, he just has a constant look on his face like he's up to something. "Very sneaky sir."
Peppino7  +   1337d ago
Still a great demo even though it was the same as E3. Best part was that jimmy didn't touch the controller and just made jokes.
Spydiggity  +   1337d ago
i don't see what's not to understand. he's not funny, he's a bumbling idiot, and he can't tell a joke without chuckling to himself (especially in his snl days)

He's just not funny. Two late night shows at 12:30, you can net your ass I'm watching GP and the Fergs.

You can tell they're are very secretive about this game. They showed nothing new what so ever. I bet New footage will be the one shown at gamescom and it will involve the creatures.

They've got 9 more months, they don't want to waste all the hype now. Gotta save it up for the three months leading up to release.
Flavor  +   1336d ago
I'm real sorry if this has been pointed out, but the sequences look exactly the same as the e3 demo, except for the ending... and he's supposed to be playing it live on the show? It's not scripted but it's pretty damn close, like endless QTE's where you have some level of input.
Ragnaarock  +   1336d ago
I think they just played it the same way as they did during te E3 to showcaase the things they have done. I'm pretty sure if you only have 6 revolver rounds you wont be shooting tem all willy nilly, but they did so showcase how the ai will react to the sound of an empty gun. They also wanted to showcase the item creation since you have to be able to do something when you have no ammo. This is why i wouldn't call it scripted or "endless qte events" especially since the people who have played the demo at E3 say that there are alot more possiblities in this one sequence then what is shown.

They should of play it a different way, its like they giving you the illusion that the game is controlling itself, but that dude is just doing the same thing he did with that E3 demo behind close doors.
duplissi  +   1337d ago
it wasnt entirely the same though.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   1337d ago
I didn't catch any difference at all... It looked exactly the same to me, in fact, I believe he was just pretending to play.

But no need to worry, ND guys already confirmed that this very part, as well as others, you can have different approaches, to the point you could skip this fight all together.

Now, my english isn't very good, but from what I understanded in that PS Blog/Pulse interview you can completelly skip many of those buildings if you don't want to explore/scavenge the area and just go to the next objective if it's somewhere else. So I don't think it will be that linear.

EDIT: I readed further down and apparently it's not the same video, someone pointed he still had a bullet before going out of ammo against that last guy in the hall. I'm watching the E3 presentation again and it's indeed not the same... My bad.

I thought he was pretending to play. I haven't compared videos but looks to be the same missed shots as the first demo. If it isn't scripted (which it isn't) fake playing would be the only way to control what was shown.

edit: Should have read your edit first before making a comment. They clear don't want to show anything else at the moment.

are they even actually playing? Looks exactly the same as e3. After seeing it again im starting to see how it all was put together even more, should be fun if not revolutionary.
I really like the animations, the more strategic gameplay and the lack of recharging health, and im going to get this game. but I have to point out to my followers the predictable ai.
NIRVANArazor  +   1337d ago
It is not the same gameplay.
sjaakiejj  +   1337d ago
Hold them side by side. It's the same gameplay.
DigitalRaptor  +   1337d ago
sjaakiejj... seriously... Read my comment below.

And then I suggest you watch them side by side, 'cause there are differences that prove it's not the exact same video. In fact, I'll copy one of my previous comments here so you can see the proof instead of you being lazy and jumping to conclusions:

"Watch the two videos side by side at the correct moments. The only reason it looks the same is because Bruce played the same scene in the same way. There are several instances that prove he's playing it and that it is different to the E3 playthrough.

Just compare it to this (E3 demo):

For example, at the start they don't sneak past the window on the left where there were some enemies in the E3 demo - they just walk past it and jump through the window straight ahead. Look at the ammo count at different moments, it's different to the E3 demo again."

So it plays out almost the same, because Bruce is playing it through the same way, not because it's a copy and paste job. Damn!

And just noticed your comment from before: "People already explained. It's the same footage as on E3 - they're not actually playing it. It's a recorded video."

You're deluded as f**k!

sjaakiejj  +   1337d ago
Fair enough. Doesn't really change anything though. If you play the videos side-by-side from the moment Joel jumps through the window, the gameplay is identical, with the single exception of having one bullet left at the end.

The reason everything else plays out the same way is because games are fundamentally deterministic. This means that if you were to play the game in the same way, everything will happen in the same way.

I'm not really convinced he's actually playing the game though, it's too identical to the E3 gameplay (as in per second accuracy, camera movements are the same, and they even kill everyone in the exact same way). It's probably a bot, which would account for the minor differences we saw.

Edit: And you just lost bubbles on that edit. Refrain from personal attacks, treat people with respect please.

_-EDMIX-_  +   1336d ago
@sjaakiejj've been proven wrong. And the whole thing about (fundamentally deterministic) or how (if you were to play the game in the same way, everything will happen in the same way)

um....well duh! Same can be said about many games. But what your not understanding is that still means its not scripted. If an AI is programmed to do this, it means that if you play that demo a dozen times THE SAME WAY, your going to get those same results a dozen times. does this mean its "scripted"? Nothing about what was shown for the AI was scripted other then placement (obviously...its a game) and what was done by the player, but even the people playing the demo clearly did things a little different in terms of order.

But they had to do things a certain way because...well their DEMOING A GAME! They need to show the AI and its reactions, thus they can't just go out swinging, or just not shoot or not take that guy hostage. Where not hear to just watch any game, where here to see what The Last Of Us is doing special compared to other games. Thus he must clearly run out of ammo to show the enemy's AI, he needs to take the guy hostage to show the complexity of the controls and its so damn funny cause NOTHING IN THIS GAME is something that has never been done before.

The Getaway and MGS3 did the hostage thing, MGS1 did the line of sight for AI's, and many games have done the whole "you've run out of ammo, now i'm mad"

Shit there are RPG's that make the bosses go into bizerk mode (if your a JRPG know what i mean) when you run out of MP.

I bet those are "scripted" too. LOL.
sjaakiejj  +   1336d ago

You're misunderstanding what I'm saying. I'm providing evidence as to why it _isn't_ scripted.
BlackPrince 42  +   1337d ago
It's probably very close because they've practiced this section enough to make events occur in a specific way for dramatic effect.

And further, it's possible that all of the AI is not in place in this build of the game. Since they're not finished yet it's not unreasonable to assume they'd leave some half-finished code out so everything would go well for presentation purposes.
DigitalRaptor  +   1337d ago
Exactly. I wish I had enough bubbles to reply to everyone who is saying it's exactly the same and/or he's pretending to play it.

That's just absolutely crazy. Bruce is clearly playing the game, like he did at E3. ND don't do fakery like that. Like you said BlackPrince, Bruce has most likely practiced the hell outta this playthrough to get it how he wants it for public demonstration purposes and since he works for ND day in/day out, he knows how the AI responds to the player's actions, if he's doing exactly the same things (moving to the same areas, with the same attacks and using the same weapons, the AI will act accordingly).

And like I've mentioned in another conversation. If you actually watch the E3 video and the Jimmy Fallon video side-by-side, there are subtle differences that prove it's him playing and that it's different.

I really hate having to clear things up for people who have just no common sense or cannot pay attention adequately. All the damn time. SMH!

kevnb  +   1337d ago
its not fake, its just the same sort of gameplay uncharted had with some core changes. Its more violent, health doesn't recharge, and every death seems to matter. I imagine the enemies must change up every now and then, especially when there is so much focus on kill animations.

It's coming guys, it's real, this game is coming this year, he's holding the cover.

Now, life makes sense.

And for those that say it was scripted, in the demo when Joel is going to shoot the guy he had no ammo, in this demo, he had 1 bullet left and the player shot it into the air.

Take that haters.

I think Naughty Dog made a big mistake by not doing something different.

It's obviously not the exact same footage, but that just makes it worse. They're kind of putting their foot in their mouth by saying, "No it's not scripted at all." And then having this footage be exactly the same at every part that matters.

Just seems like a stupid move that they didn't bother to do anything different. Now the people who think it's scripted won't ever shut up.

Edit: Also, since apparently no one noticed except one guy, the whole one extra bullet thing was some kind of glitch. He picked up the two extra bullets at the beginning, has 6 total. Fires one at the guy who saw him, 5. One after he makes it to the couch, 3. Two into the guy who tried to run across, 2. One after he takes that guy hostage, and the last bullet into that guys head. Thats where it glitches and he ends up with an extra magic bullet.

IHateYouFanboys  +   1337d ago
The gameplay was exactly the same as the e3 gameplay because it's the same pre-recorded gameplay video.

People on here don't seem to realize that very few, if any, of the on-stage demos at e3 are actually being played. They are essentially trailers, but made from someone playing the game. Think FRAPS.

This isn't anything against naught dog either, it's how every developer does it at e3. Why? So things go EXACTLY as planned in the footage that is shown. The last thing they want is for a bug to rear its ugly head - having an enemy wig out and face a wall while running into it continually isn't a good look. Having the game crash and have to reset isn't a good look. Having a person "play" it on stage is just for show. In views where you can see their hands, theyir inputs never match the on screen action.

It's been this way for years.

It isn't the same footage. I thought that and got the E3 footage up and it is different. They did the same route but no it was different.

But still i would of liked him to not run out of ammo and maybe we would of seen a different outcome. But hey the game is not out till next year.

But i worry when the game comes out and i complete it and try another path that if i make a mistake "Run out of ammo" that i get the same scene which has a knock on effect to future parts of the level that i have already done. :L

Either way i do have faith in Naughty Dog but i worry i know how the game will play out and not as i hope or Naughty have said.
srcBFMVBMTH  +   1337d ago
It's not the same, just similar. At E3 when he shot at the dude at the end of the hall, (before Ellie threw the brick) he had no bullets. Here he had an extra (It was a glitch that happened here but not at E3). Also, he backed up from the wall A LOT faster after he smashed the dudes face in the dresser. He also goes into cover a little differently. They're just playing through it similarly to show what the people that didn't watch E3 missed.

What did you guys expect, the full 17 minute demo?

You do realise this is a TV show and time is of the essence right?

Plus, we just had E3. If they were going to show another section, they would have done it there, not on Jimmy Fallon.

The purpose of this demonstration was to show it off for the first time to a mainstream, non gaming audience and get a bit more exposure.

Plus, Jimmys reactions are priceless. I love his enthusiasm.

Braid  +   1337d ago
Okay, I'll write this once and try to explain it as simple as possible. The reactions of the enemies in video games are triggered by your actions. All of the possible player actions are pre-defined by the programmers and each action trigger a different reaction when it happens in the game. It's like "If player takes route A, act B. If player takes route C, act D. If player takes route E, act F..." and it goes on like that. It's the same system in EVERY SINGLE GAME YOU PLAY. The machine never decides for itself, nor it becomes self aware and takes a different route than programmed. If you call this a scripted game, yes, TLOUS is scripted as well, so is every other game out there on the planet untill artificial intelligence is invented.

What you see here is the player taking the same route as the E3 demo, triggering the same reactions. In E3 demonstration player takes route A, triggering event B. In this gameplay, player takes route A again, and guess what happens? I think you get the drill.

Please stop calling this game scripted over and over and over and over again, we already know it is, because in reality, every game you play is designed using the same friggin way of programming.

Pretty sure they played a demo copy from E3, but then it doesn't really matter 'cause it's definitely a bloody-tastic game.
First impression is that NaughtyDog has again shown their reputation by building credible heroic characters and what is looking to be an epic story.

It's not a complete copy of the E3 demo, if you watch the E3 one then you'll notice that he runs out of ammo just before Ellie throws the brick, he doesn't in this one and he has to miss on purpose otherwise the man wouldn't of said "I know that sound, I got you now".
