The Last of Us Provides Options to Turn off Listen Mode, Melee Prompts and Tag Popups

There were quite a few previews released for The Last of Us this week, most of which were full of positive feedback. However, a number of sources all expressed concern about the game, mostly on the side of the game’s stealth mechanics.

Good I'm glad to see this. Saw that Listen Mode and instantly didn't want that feature. Want the game to play exactly as we saw it in the first demo shown for the game.

Agreed/ It's an extra feature for casuals

Not sure why someone is disagreeing with you that you would prefer it with listening mode off. Maybe someone on here knows you better than you do.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1529d ago

Absolutely. Don't want anything hindering the immersion.

If there's a survivor mode im probably gonna have the lock-on aim on. dont want to accidently miss shooting a clicker in the head.

Ducky1529d ago

... but what if you want to purposely miss a clicker?
What will you do then elhebbo?

@ducky keep shootin' till hes dead i guess.

MidnytRain1529d ago

Wait, how do you "turn off" violence?

PRHB HYBRiiD1529d ago

Or no gore..maybe when u blow up somebody it just parts or blood flying around.

Omar911528d ago

you dont like subtitles to be on?

Tres211528d ago

dats the same thing i thought but im an anime watcher so i lik subtitles even in my

Would make it harder but also more real. I can't wait for the day we can minimize and eliminate HUD data. I think it feels more real without a cluttered screen. I think things like putting the health pack on Isaac's back ala Deadspace is a good example of better hud substitute.

I agree but that's not something that easily implemented in most games. The futuristic setting made it easy to just slap that info on his suit, but there are alternatives just need to be creative, for example stumbling and a blood trail as you lose health, hunching over ect. Metro last light hits the nail on the head w these kind of features.

I'm surprised people and the media were moaning about these things. Naughty Dog are top developers and it was obvious they would include options to turn these things off. Sometimes previews can be good but it does give the opportunity for some journalists to have a moan and a go at putting the game down before they receive the final code.

All previews have to be accessible to every level of gamer, that's how it works. Can you imagine putting the settings on hard for the previews, all the casual game reviewers would have a fit.

Well there goes on less thing people can complain about, its good to have options thats for sure.
