Only one of those shots is in-game and it doesn't look that great.

I really think people are hyping this game way too much, I very much doubt it will match the hype and it will probably leave everyone disappointed.

The games that will win the majority of GOTY awards are Bioshock Infinite, GTA V and maybe Watch Dogs (hopefully Tomb Raider too). I doubt TLoU will dominate this year against amazing competition, should win a lot of best PS3 GOTY awards unless Beyond Two Souls is amazing.

Hence one bubble

The atmosphere, the emotion, the gameplay mechanics, the graphics will all be top notch...Can you not gather that from the vids they've released? The only way your not going to like this game is if you dislike survival horror....Or your a Xbox/pc only gamer trying to downplay it.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   874d ago
I highly doubt your comment sir. Bioshock infinite is a great game. But you are already judging a game that hasn't come out yet. Weird because GTAV and watch dogs hasn't come out either and your already saying its GOTY. There's no reason to be butthurt because this game has the most hype in it.
SpecialK  +   874d ago
I know a few people who bought ps3's for this game. People who years back never would have thought of getting a ps3.

Its one of those few games that will warrant buying a ps3. Given the track record naughty dog set this gen with uncharted, another system selling franchise, this game should be brilliant.
FamilyGuy  +   873d ago
It looks like a freakin PS4 game, the lighting is just beyond this gen. I love how they MacGyver anything random into useful stuff. It's like synthesizing in jrpgs, I don't see how this game could possibly disappoint.
MaideninBlack  +   874d ago
The game is coming out next month. One would think that it should be finished by now.
Minato-Namikaze  +   874d ago
Yeah they have to start printing discs at some point, lol. Most games are "finished" 3 to 4 weeks before release.
cl1983  +   874d ago
By no means do I ever want dev to have the programming bug that bungie had in the 90s, but I'd still have to laugh if a finished game ever had that happen again with such a short time from gold to retail.

cl1983 - NBA Elite 11 went gold, only a few PS3 copies were made available to purchase on eBay after it got canceled lol. That game was completely broken after that viral video of the Jesus players in the demo.
JohnApocalypse  +   874d ago
Coming out in a month, sounds about right. I am worried about the multiplayer since they haven't shown it yet

I cant bring myself to worry about anything that has the name Naughty Dog on it.

Edit: Do i have disagree stalker? I've been getting 3 or 4 disagrees all day, lol.

The only way to avoid disagrees on N4G is to not post anything. Ever.

It's ridiculous.

The single player alone deserves a buy though...even if Multiplayer is mediocre.

Dlacy13g  +   874d ago
Given its May 15th I sure as h*ll hope they are either done with it or very close to being done with it. I mean it hits store shelves on 6/14 so I would think this is cutting it pretty close in terms of deadlines for production/packaging and shipping out the complete game in box.

Guaranteed buy
My most anticipated game for 2013
hmmm, you'd think they would've done some sort of beta for the multiplayer on a game like this by now, hope we get to see mp soon

this will be the BEST 50.00 ive ever spent. I got mine on a preorder deal on newegg for $49.99 no tax + free shipping

Naughty dog cant be touched. Absolute best devs ever and even without playing TLOU i already know its game of the century
Kal-El-001  +   873d ago
im waiting for it to drop to 30 bucks especially if its as linear as Uncharted. after UC 1 i didnt pay full price for UC 2&3 cuz they have no replay value the same shit happens every time. these linear 6 hour games are not worth 60 bucks
4lc4pon3  +   873d ago
I still love my entire uncharted series and tho yes it's linear I disagree about replay value. Well at least for myself. I've eat each game between 8-12 times. Can't wait for last of us

a developer finished a game before the release date?

most devs wait after the game's been released before finishing it (with patches), haha

icecoldfire  +   873d ago
If only i had a PS3 (sigh). You guys are lucky to have Naughty Dog supporting it all the way.
Kinger8938  +   873d ago
Some nob on this site pm'd me the story spoilers at random for no reason.. i didnt read it as i knew what it was straight away but my eyes saw enough :(

Ahh well its not going to stop me from buying and enjoying this game, its just soo sad what people do for that bit of 'power'they must then feel at the tip of there penis when they send spoilers out..

i will have forgotten by the time it comes out i hope :)

Shnooze  +   873d ago
I really don't get the hype for this game.

What's so great about it? This is a serious question, so the disagree-ers are probably going to have a hay-day with it.

Anywho, what's so great about this game? From what I've HEARD, and what I've pieced together, it just sounds like a run of the mill survival horror game.

At least have the courtesy to fill me in, as my circumstances to watch any videos on it are pretty dim.

Looking at your profile, I'm going to assume you're a single console owner. If that is indeed the case, then your question is very short-sighted. Naughty Dog doesn't make "run of the mill" games, and had you played any of them from this generation alone, you would understand that. Their combination of story telling, graphics and gameplay have been second to none this gen, so what you "heard" obviously wasn't correct.

Shnooze  +   872d ago
I don't even play console games, so I wanted to know what the game was like. If it's that big of a problem that I didn't hear anything convincingly good about it then please enlighten me.

If I'd have heard something good about it instead of being told to assume it's gonna be good then yeah I'd have gotten back into consoles just to play it.

Rubberlegs  +   873d ago
If you haven't played Uncharted or really any of NG past games then you most likely won't be to excited for this. I also wouldn't call this your run of the mill survival horror since we don't get to much those today which a lot seem to want and now were getting one. This is also something from new from them and their first time trying to make a survival horror style game.

dumb news that only fanboys would jizz over. I hope this is wrong and they finished the game 5 months ago and just been play testing if not, Oh-O!
