The Last of Us - The game carries an "infection" in itself that no one knows yet

The Last of Us is coming without a doubt one of the highlights this year, which of the award-winning Uncharted creators Naughty Dog.

Besides quite obvious things that are one presented with the game, Naughty Dog's creative director Neil Druckmann noticed now one thing that no one has been identified.

"Here is a great mystery about the game that no one knows is that there is more than one kind of infection."

Naughty Dog plays with it but not on another zombie-fungal mutation or other survivors, but focuses on the narrative of the story class at the center.

"If together gameplay, story and art work, you can affect the players in a way as to make it impossible for any other medium can be reached."

Personally, you can of this "first-class" work from 07 May convince when The Last of Us, published worldwide.

@ j-blaze

In several articles I've explained to you where you're wrong on that assumption (because that's what it is - an assumption. You're full of them and you have proven that you know barely anything about the game before you hate on it). I've even replied to your PMs and countered your points - if you can even call them points. How did you reply? This:

"you were right on most things you said, i didn't know what to say...but still ND's attitude is cheap and their games are overrated TLoU will be no different!"

It's not even your opinion of the game anymore. It's your overwhelming burning hatred for Naughty Dog and any project they are working on no matter how great. Your annoyance at the fact that people are excited by and hype up a ND game, supersedes your view of the quality of the game itself. So essentially, like with most people in supreme denial, you will hear what people say and understand that it's right (like you did in that PM), but you will ignore it on the grounds of your immature and baseless claims, and the fact that a company has had success with their games which are nothing short of great.

Your attitude is cheap more than anything. Sort it out.

Pintheshadows2158d ago

Honestly DigitalRaptor, I wouldn't waste your breath on J-blaze. I've been in your posistion before and you'd have more luck convincing a dog that it was in fact St Paul's Cathedral. And more fun as well.

@ j-blaze

Temporary2158d ago

insomnium22158d ago

Oh dear god DigitalRaptor just burned J-blaze. There is absolutely no way to save face after that.

Can't wait to play this game!

BlmThug2158d ago

I would have joined you in the sobbing had I not sold my 360 and purchased a PS3 :'D what games do you guys recommend? I've already bought a new copy of GT5 Academy Edition and I will definetly be buying GoW and Uncharted so no need to recommend those.

Walker2158d ago (Edited 2158d ago )

xbox cannot render this graphics, animations and specially AI:) .

Imalwaysright2158d ago (Edited 2158d ago )

@ BlmThug Demons Souls, MGS4, Heavy Rain, Infamous 1/2, Valkyrie Chronicles, LBP 2, Journey, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Killzone 2/3, Resistance Collection, Starwhawk and if you've never played them SoTC/Ico HD collection. There is an Uncharted boxset with all 3 games so if you're interested you may want to look it up.

Edit: Im from Europe so i dont really care but ive seen people saying that MLB the show is the best baseball game franchise.

An infection within an infection! Blow your horns, ladies and gentlemen, it's called INFEPTION.

More than one kind of infection? Is this a legitimate quote? If it is, then I'm very intrigued!

Riderz13372159d ago

You weren't intrigued about this game before?! What's wrong with you?

SilentNegotiator2158d ago (Edited 2158d ago )

I'm pretty sure he means intrigued by the fact, not the game itself.

Basic english skills, people. He didn't say anything about the game in general, just the idea of multiple infections. The IDEA was the subject of that comment.

SilentNegotiator2158d ago (Edited 2158d ago )

Riderz PM'd me and said he wasn't being literal, but was just being funny. I feel like a jerk for being so harsh on the comment now, but remember; sarcasm doesn't always read well!

ZoyosJD2159d ago

I think the quote is more metaphorical in its intended meaning.

Nonetheless a zombie rabbit would be AWESOME!!!

-Alpha2159d ago

The infection is Dark Eco. This is all a prequel to Jak and Daxter.


HammadTheBeast2158d ago

Another kind of infection could be jealousy

Ezz20132158d ago

don't worry it won't effect ps3 owners

Y_51502159d ago

There's a real life fungis called Cordyceps.
here is the video that the teaser for TLoU took a snippet out of it.

"There are literally thousands of different types of Cordyceps fungi and remarkably and each specialize on one species."

This fungus can cause the victim to have no control of it's body and mind. Even becoming cannibalistic.

So in The Last of Us, a new type of Cordyceps has formed and it targets humans and by the looks of it it spread quickly across the world! The true mystery is how did the new type of the fungus formed? I guess it was a lab accident because right now scientist are experimenting with it for medical reasons.


i think pretty much everyone knew that, this is saying there is a second infection that knowone knows about.

GribbleGrunger2159d ago

exactly. That's why I'm intrigued. I've been saying for a long time now that we don't know if it's only humans that get infected. What if there are other creatures that inhabit the world?

SolidStoner2159d ago

this game sounds better and better.. since I like fallout type games (deserted, wastelands, no one around, creepy sounds etc..), this games looks to me very fun to play! Cant wait to see full gameplay and reviews about it...

pandehz2159d ago (Edited 2159d ago )

I see its gonna come with a virus that can only be removed if you beat the game?
