During the development of The Last of Us, Naughty Dog were relentless in cutting things that didn’t work or broke the reality of the game, which almost stretched to the infected as well.
Im glad they didnt, it really seems to add another dimension to the world.
Was just watching The Walking Dead on Netflix a few hours ago (it's a shame I didn't watch it before because it's really good!), and my mom freaked out the first time she saw how horrible and terrifying the zombies looked, but she stayed for the atmosphere and story. Once I get this game, I can't wait to play this game with my parents around so they can also be horrified by the Infected, but then stay for the atmosphere, setting, characters, and the story! On topic, since ND decided to keep the Infected in, I am interested in how they explain the importance and origin of them. The cordyceps documentary was fascinating, and I have no doubt ND will deliver on this!
Gaming with your mom, thats really cute :) Edit: The only "gaming" my missis does is play that damn CandyCrush, I game with my 5 year old daughter often, but im a cool Dad so im bound to
A lot of Moms are gamers these days. My wife is a gamer and she's always gaming with our son
Hey don't knock it till you tried it! ^^
Lol my mom enjoys watching me play Arkham City in the living room. She watches it as a movie.
Haha nah my mom's not a gamer. But she does like watching the games I play. When I was playing Uncharted 3, she loved the parts where Drake is in the cruise ship! She thought it looked like a movie. Then when I was playing Sleeping Dogs just 2 weeks ago (great game btw! I'm happy PS+ introduced me to this game), she was concerned at first because I just started beating people up for no reason (I told her the character I was playing as was Bruce Lee, so I could do anything). Then she just started watching for the gameplay, story, and the karaoke :) I love having my parents around when I watch videogames. It's a great way of bonding with my family, it makes my parents excited that games can look like movies nowadays, they love the types of games I play (no matter how gore-y) because of the great atmosphere and characters and story, and just generally are happy watching me play videogames.
The infected transmitted the virus from one derived from ants which causes them to eat their own as the virus takes over. I think they then commit suicide.
The infected don't appear often but when they do it's pretty scary. I got the game Friday (thanks to local stores :3) and I just got past that part in the subway from the demo they showed a while back. I kept restarting it cuz I wanted to get through undetected by the clickers lol
they are so great in making great games that exceed everything there was before
They really toned down the infected from original concept arts. Originally they had very grotesque monsters that were contorted much like Necromorphs from Dead Space, a good choice I reckon, it would have ruined seriousness of the game if they went with the concepts.
I wished they cut out the season pass perks, I purchased season pass for SP content but come on I want a challenge not increased health, reload etc, hope this option can be switched off.
Humans are the real threat!
In this they are lol. The soldiers kill you in a few shots....infected are easy to sneak past. But if a clicker spots you ur done lol
I love how tLoU really replicates human behaviour because if the world actually was hit by a scenario such as tLoU, humans would be the real threat. Humans would lie, steal, kill and many other things just to get ahead and I love tLoU for capturing that :D other games fail to do so and instead focus on the creatures as being the main bad guys
I can't really argue for or against it given that I gotta wait a week before I can play it. But given their track record I'd argue they made the right call.
I get the game today one word describe it : EPIC
Have fun! It's amazing. Got it friday
Thanks . . and thank you Naughty Dog
You lucky guy :'(
haha i love the last part of the article: "There’s an ironic little twist to this story. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Irrational’s art director Nate Wells left the development of BioShock Infinite because he could no longer deal with Ken Levine’s penchant for iteration and relentless scrapping. Where did Mr. Wells go to? Naughty Dog, where nothing is precious. Oh fate, thou art a cruel mistress."
Naughty Dog - Remastering one genre at a time
PS1 - Crash Bandicoot - Games of the Generation for me PS2 - Jak and Daxter - Amazing games PS3/Vita - Uncharted/tLoU - High chance of Games of the Generation, again We need more Naughty Dog's in the industry! People who put their heart and soul into what they do
Personally I like the idea of "Humans only". Would be great and have a feel like the Programme Revolution.
Glad they didn't. I've been craving a properly good survival horror game for a while now. Looks like this could be the one.
Hm part of me would of liked it to be just post disaster/end of the wolrd human almost like the show Revolution but i guess the infected keep you on the edge of your seat entering a dark building, room. Although i do wish for the next Uncharted they don't add any teleporting ghost rider dudes. The yeti and other things like that are cool but these crazy hard monster/mythological dudes are annoying. More of a National Treasure vibe would be cool.
