So Nolan North is in The Last of Us after all

I just want to say I’m having a heck of a time with The Last of Us so far, if you haven’t picked up or downloaded your copy yet do yourself a favor and do so ASAP. So yes, while the game is why I wrote this it’s not what I’m here to talk about.

A wee wee back when The Last of Us was just a ant and the first Spike VGA trailer (2011) was revealed; showing 'Us' the "man" behind the beautiful curtain -- which turned out to be Naughty Dog I developed some suspicion. (Nolan North, PS3, The Last Of Us)

Need to pick this game up asap,

I heard the ending that was leaked was fake can anyone confirm this??

@Lovable It's called bills man.I would love to have the game but necessities comes before entertainment.

describe the leaked ending.

Wouldn't be appropriate, seeing as it leaves you with some notion as to what to look forward to, which could taint your expectations on the journey overall. Anyways yeah I noticed Nolan's voice immediately, I knew he'd be in this game.

Saw him in the credits at the end, was really happy :o

Yeah, I had a major part of the story spoiled by some dope on IGN's Beyond! podcast. He didn't think he was spoiling anything, but when it came to an obvious part, I knew what the outcome would be. (It was only about 2/3rds of the way in.) I was pretty ticked that I didn't get to experience that with a raw brain.

You're a PS3 gamer and you haven't picked this bad boy yet? What the hell? You're giving yourself a diservice...

What did Rusty say? I'm curious.

as soon as you can Majin-vegeta go get it my vote for G.O.T.Y:)

Whatever leaked ending you heard will not ruin your experience. Trust me. This game is truly great. It's not all about the ending but rather everything all together. You'll get it when you play it. When your done with the game you'll also want to play it again because it's just that good. The multiplayer is also pretty fun. I just hope the dlc isn't just more maps but rather more modes such as one that includes the infected.

DUDE yes, the ending was leaked for me on on THIS SITE. The entire time playing I was worried I already knew, and it was wrong! Completely! No worries all around.

The last of us IS a necessity.
ginsunuva  +   845d ago
Yeah those "leaked" endings a month ago were so laughably fake. You even find out how fake they were within the first 2 hours of the game.

It's not an ending you can leak. Naughty Dog is genious! An un-leakable ending!

While the ending itself isn't that important, you can still ruin the entire game in a sentence or two. I'm glad that I stayed away from anything Last of Us related before I played it, it has a fantastic story.

I was surprised to see his name in the credits at the end.Just goes to show how talented he really is.

I had no idea it was him voicing the guy.Just a shame it was like, literally, the only character to not have any dialogue with Joel.

Troy and Nolan's in-game banter would of been something to behold lol.The stars of naughty Dog collide!

It's a testament to his voice acting really, David sounds nothing like Nathan Drake and I doubt anyone could have guessed it was Nolan if they were put on the spot about it.
die_fiend  +   845d ago
What David the crazy one who turned on Ellie?
TechnicianTed  +   845d ago
Yep, I bet you're surprised aye? :P
Eyeco  +   845d ago
His performance as that guy was incredible, he was a sympathetic villain.
r40k213  +   845d ago
I didn't feel a tiny bit of sympathy. David creeped me the hell out from the moment I met him. I must admit I had no idea Nolan North was voicing him, great job on his part. Great job on all the voice actor's parts actually.
ArchangelMike  +   845d ago
Yeah I was rreally surprised that Drake... I mean Nolan north was actually in TLoU.
stage88  +   845d ago
His part is absolutely fantastic. Never would have guessed its him.
plmkoh  +   845d ago
I had a slight suspicion David was Nolan, there were times during his lines his character voice would crack and reveal a slightly Drake voice.

I simply brushed it off, because I was under the impression Nolan wasn't in it.
PhantomTommy  +   845d ago
David was actually my favorite character in TLOU, Nolan North has a far wider range than people give him credit for.
Blacklash93  +   845d ago
No, everyone knows he voices everybody. Heck, you might be voiced by Nolan North right now and not even know it.
tarbis  +   845d ago
Daym, that would be an honor. I would happily be voiced by him in real life. XD
Can you imagine how awesome you would sound while approaching gurls?

lmboooooooooo @blacklash the joke was funny too.
ashade  +   845d ago
my mind official..... blow!!!
plaZeHD  +   845d ago
He was David? What? He didn't even sound a tiny bit like him. Mind = Blown.
monkey602  +   845d ago
This man is building one hell of a legacy
Chaos_Raiden  +   845d ago
This proves Nolan North is a versatile voice actor, like his role in this game and as Penguin in Batman: Arkham City.
SuperDopetastic  +   845d ago
am I the only one who gets the crap scared outta them while playing this...I'm in the sewers with the other guy and his brother. i see infected running across the screen into other rooms ahhh trippy...maybe i should play sober
Sigh  +   845d ago
Sometimes I can tell when Nolan North is in the game but in The Last of Us and in Arkham City, he played David and the Penguin brilliantly. Would have never knew if it wasn't for the credits.
