The Last of Us wraps ups the motion capture work for the game’s cinematics

The highly anticipated post-apocalyptic title, “The Last of Us,” is now one step closer to being finished as Neil Druckmann, Creative Director at Naughty Dog, tweeted today that they have wrapped after capturing the last of the game’s cinematics today. This is another milestone that the developers have behind them in order to complete one of next year’s most awaited games.

Coming from Naughty Dog, the developers of the “Uncharted” game franchise, “The Last of Us” places players inside a post-apocalyptic survival game that promises to feature action and deep characterization. The dramatic story told by the game focuses on a man and teenage girl as they try to survive inside a world destroyed by plague. The two can’t just stock up on supplies and wait out the end however, as they are put on a quest to travel across the remains of the former United States. (PS3, The Last Of Us)

I seriously cannot think of a single game that's made me more anxious to have a copy in my hands than The Last of Us.

Looking forward to the cutscenes, is that weird? Blame Uncharted :P

Edit: And Jak and Daxter. I miss Daxter. He should pop up in The Last of Us for old time's sake, just out of nowhere haha.

that would be cool, if they came across Daxter toys in a toy store or something like a poster.

UC3 gave us a sign of TLOU in the bar setting, we might find a link to J&D4 in TLOU. Especially since the team that made TLOU was suppose to make Jak4.
KangarooSam  +   1141d ago
Or if he just jumps the frack out and grabs the camera hahaha "I'm gonna Jak you up!"


(I think your idea's better)

Actually, I was thinking: since Ellie is carrying a bag, there could be a pin/button for you to collect 9like a sidequest) scattered all over the place. One pin/button could be Jak & Daxter related!

I'm also thinking some pins will have subtle skill effects!

for a second there i thought you were talking about MGS or Final Fantasy...i love cutscenes, but they aren't big deal in ND games especially with all the horrible acting "she moves her head and hands like crazy!"
the cutscenes in Jak 3 were better...all just my opinion btw

You've got to admire his conviction though.
He uses his one bubble for this in every article, at least he has passion, misplaced though it might be.
DigitalRaptor  +   1140d ago
Wow. j-blaze is really bitter about Naughty Dog's acclaim and successes today. It's a new record of delusion.

"Horrible acting"
"she moves her head and hands like crazy!"

So... serious, realistic expression equates to bad acting? Sure. Annie Wersching is a great actress and her method is not exclusive to this game. She played an incredible role in '24'. Every actor in this game has been cast because they are all great at what they do. You'll look for anything to troll this game, no matter how irrelevant.

I honestly can't wait to see you embarrass yourself even more as time goes on. Keep it coming.

Goddamn wapanese, when will you stop trolling ND?
ayabrea93  +   1140d ago
how come every time there's a last of us article you put the same message up? that's pretty sad lol
p.s the actings believable and oh my god head movement, how dare you bring body movement into acting lol

man looking at this game its hard to believe that naughtydog used to make crap games until they got to crash where it was all uphill from there.
Godchild1020  +   1141d ago
After reading your comment, I went to read up on Naughty Dog. While I don't know how their previous games were, they have made some great games on the PlayStation. And some of the studios, that came about that are second party, have come from the great members of Naughty Dog. High Impact Games & Ready at Dawn are made up of members of Naughty Dogs, Insomniac Games, along with others from Blizzard.

If you think about it, Naughty Dog could of had 3/4 teams, under their name. But they moved on to other things. It's nice to know, as a company they have helped so many in this industry.

Congratulations on finishing up the motion capture on 2013's game of the year, Naughty Dog.
KwietStorm  +   1141d ago
I am NOT looking forward to the next few months of hype. Same with GTA. I knew I should have bid on that hyperbolic time chamber.
rezzah  +   1141d ago
I always get through by not thinking about the games. Sometimes I completely forget until it shows up at my door or with the mail.

The higher your hope the harder the fall.
DarkBlood  +   1141d ago
LOL your going to spend a year in the time chamber only for it to be one day equavelint has passed outside of it? :P
Riderz1337  +   1141d ago
GIVE ME THIS GAME NOW! I hope you will be able to pre-order it on PSN so that I actually get the game the first day it comes out. I already have it pre-ordered but I always manage to get my pre-orders late and it's really annoying because it's hard to avoid spoilers on a game once it's been released.
Ilovetheps4  +   1141d ago
I'm not sure if they will have a digital release of the game. I personally think the game might be a little too large for a digital release, but you never know. I just want to know one thing. Where do you pre-order your games? I've never had issues with pre-ordering games so I'm just wondering which store you have issues with.
Riderz1337  +   1140d ago
I usually pre-order from Amazon. I think they always come late because the house I live in is a new area and the houses were very recently built (about a year ago). It's a brand new address so I guess that's why they get misplaced/come in late.
delboy  +   1141d ago
I just hope that TLoU is more game then Uncharted.
I mean more game and less quick time events.
Maybe this time ND will deliver more than (what they like to call) a whole new cinematic experience.

A game with to much scripted events like scripted jumping,enemy take downs,linear lelevel design with zero freedom to explore,and what not.
This isn't the way the games should be heading to and evolve in that direction.

Maybe I'm to old,and I don't see the graphics,because graphics it's all that's matters these days.
By today's standards a game with good graphics is automatically a good game.
Is this the future of gaming!?

its going to be the same idea, good gameplay but story and visuals first. Im ok with it, they do it well.
Alcohog  +   1140d ago
That's like saying a combat RTS game needs to evolve into a FPS. Linear adventures have their place just like every other genre.
delboy  +   1140d ago
I can agree with you.
But is it so wrong if we whish a little bit more?

This site is full of fan boys!
Every comment is misappropriated as a attack on sony, nintendo, ms ect.
No one reads with understanding,because it's easier to just hit disagree!
The lack of understanding makes me feel sad for you fan boys.
