Naughty Dog on The Last of Us: “We Pushed the PS3 to 110%,” Early Combat was More “Martial Artsy”

"I know I’ve mentioned before how busy Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley have been promoting The Last of Us (it paid off), but looking at the amount of interviews they’ve done over the past few months is still mind-boggling. Hopefully they get to rest up soon and start work on The Last of Us 2: Even Less of Us for PS4." - PSLS (PS3, The Last Of Us)

this is what...
i usually think of when i see/hear...110%

OT, the game will go down in history as one of the best made.

In other words... nothing anyone else will do will look better than TLOU, unless someone pushes the ps3 to 111+%. Well if TLOU holds the crown... no other game should feel bad because the game was perfect.

I would have preferred a better boss fight though. I love boss fights. Thats just my opinion.

The boss fight was fine. It was desperate, deadly, with a feeling of hopelessness throughout.

What on EARTH did you expect from The Last Of Us?
Dwalls1171  +   942d ago
Loved last of us but ummmm its greatness In its storytelling pacing, voice acting etc.... their is nothing in last of us that pushes the limits of the ps3 from a " Technical stand point"

So sry I have to respectfully dissagree with ND on this one...Games like GOW3 MGS4 seem like they pushed ps3 to the limit far more then Last of us...From a "Technical stand Point"

It looks like gta 5 pushed it even further !
j-blaze  +   942d ago
i believe Beyond 2 Souls is going to crush this game and NDs ego along with it
ND seriously need to stop giving us these fake numbers about how much percentage of ps3's mythical power their game used, they say that with every game they release, they're the only dev who always showoff and talk about how awesome they and their games are, they absolutely have no respect to the other devs

so according to you guys Justin Bieber is the best singer in the world

Uncharted: Drakes Fortune - 88

Uncharted 2 - 96

Uncharted 3 - 92

The Last of Us - 95

When you have scores like these, it's alright to be arrogant.
wanieldiik  +   942d ago
don't mind J-blaze. He's just butthurt that TloU, a game he's been trolling since it first was announced got universal acclaim from critcs and gamers and it also sells very well.
hollabox  +   942d ago
Beyond 2 Souls does look better from what I can tell in pictures and videos. But I doubt it will be as good as The Last of Us. Watching gameplay videos I wanted to fall asleep, and if its like Heavy Rain count me out. Didn't care for that game too much, traded it in after 2 weeks.

Now MGS 5, Watchdog, and GTA 5 might be the best looking games to come out on the consoles this generation if the all the screens shots and videos are real and not running on PCs. After watching the gameplay trailer on GTA 5 I'm shocked they can fit all that content on the Xbox360/PS3 memory foot print at ounce.
DigitalRaptor  +   942d ago
Yep, Beyond: Two Souls..

A game where everything is within an enclosed sandbox and gives you options to play within that sandbox so they can push graphical fidelity even further. Not saying that's a bad thing, and I'm massively anticipating Beyond, but at least use logic man. I can imagine your brain is:

And you're acting like David Cage doesn't have a huge ego of his own in regards to making games - you massive hypocrite.

It's almost like Naughty Dog can't be enthusiastic about their games without j-blaze jumping up their ass and taking it personally. LMAO! Naughty Dog don't need to be humble - they make excellent games, and even Kojima-san and others agree.

"they absolutely have no respect to the other devs"

Oh, Boo-frickin-Hoo. What you mean here is that fact that Naughty Dog gets praise for being amazing at their jobs makes you bitter and tearful. The fact that your favourite developers don't get the same level of recognition.

I think somewhere in the depths of j-blaze's imagination, superior Japanese developers everywhere get together and hate on Naughty Dog, and expose their sensitivities for them being so darn arrogant. Yeah, like I said, in his wildest dreams.

That's pretty much it.

"The Last of Us 2: Even Less of Us"

Haha! that caught me off guard.
ginsunuva  +   942d ago
It's "fewer," not less.
Neo-Axl  +   942d ago
Nope, it's "Less".
Conzul  +   941d ago

It's "Fewer". You can count people on your fingers, so he's right. The only way it would be "less" people is if there were a vat full of dissolved people in it and you could pour out "less" of it.
Neo-Axl  +   942d ago
Stealth disagrees, Butt hurt tidal wave in pursuit!
Mr-SellJack  +   942d ago

WalterWJR  +   942d ago
I thought uncharted 3 looked better but this is probably because TLOU has such a grim atmosphere.
HammadTheBeast  +   942d ago
I played Uncharted 3 after TLOU and I can safely say that the animations, quality, and graphics are much better. Both are great, but it shows that the studios really evolved.
WalterWJR  +   942d ago
I think I must have got a dodgey disc or something because I was not blown away with the ghaphics like I was with uncharted 2 and 3. This also could be because I have played a fair bit of PC in between.

Even so, it Was hands down the most fun game I have played this generation.

I'm with WalterWJR, the Last of Us looks great for the most part but its kinda inconsistent. Some levels especially the forest levels made my jaw drop. But levels in town during the day had allot of aliasing artifacts, low res textures, and a lack of anisotropic filtering made viewing objects from the side blurry. The non pre baked shadows looked blocky with cascading artifacts as well.

I actually think Uncharted 2 had the best graphics for me on the PS3. I had more jaw dropping moment in that game than any other console game. But it could be because we have gotten use to a certain visual standard making any improvements hard to notice unless its a big leap in visual fidelity.

PurpHerbison  +   942d ago
Well since pushing the PS3 to 100% was already used up enough I guess the only logical thing to say next would be 110%.
GoldPunch-TR  +   942d ago
Best game studio ever!
ape007  +   942d ago
with TLOU, the studio has cemented its name as one of the greatest studios in planet earth
nick309  +   942d ago
Joel and the guy from dragon age 2 looks the same:P i really like tlou & its mp mode
RGDubz  +   942d ago
Would have loved to have seen the early combat, sounds like it would have been better.
Williamson  +   942d ago
No game has given me the type of experience that the last of us has, the gameplay had me in some pretty tense moments. I fear going back to the basement of the hotel level.
Loki86  +   942d ago
Can't wait to play this on PS4 whenever Gaikai is up, don't feel like dropping the money on a PS3 with the new hardware this close to release.
GDDR6_2014  +   942d ago
Then GTA5 pushed ps3 to 120%
Conzul  +   941d ago
A multiplat? Doubt it.
worldwidegaming  +   942d ago
Love the PR. It was cooler to say 100%
115% must mean the ps3 was overclocked or something!

Gamer stupid, lets say 1000% next time hyuk hyuk!

The game was the best!
e-p-ayeaH  +   942d ago
Naughty Dog did a fine work in the system but it needs to keep aimming higher i want open world aventures from now on TLoU felt very limited in some parts i really like to explore at least they took a step in that direction with this game.

Naughty Dog on The Last of Us: “We Pushed the PS3 to 110%,
and still crysis 3 looks better... console btw.

windblowsagain  +   941d ago

Crysis3 does indeed look excellent on PC.

On PS3/360 it looks ok for a muddy game.

Shiny faces vs natural looking faces.
