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

i usually think of when i see/hear...110%

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

Peppino71780d ago (Edited 1780d ago )

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.

Conzul1779d ago

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?

Dwalls11711780d 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"

SheenuTheLegend1779d ago

Yo Yo Your thinking is so low low

ziggurcat1780d ago

i thought it would be more like this:

Derekvinyard131780d ago

It looks like gta 5 pushed it even further !

j-blaze1780d ago (Edited 1780d 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

@ below

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

HammadTheBeast1780d ago

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.

wanieldiik1780d 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.

hollabox1780d 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.

DigitalRaptor1780d ago (Edited 1780d 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.

Conzul1779d 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-Axl1780d ago

Stealth disagrees, Butt hurt tidal wave in pursuit!

WalterWJR1780d ago

I thought uncharted 3 looked better but this is probably because TLOU has such a grim atmosphere.

HammadTheBeast1780d 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.

WalterWJR1780d ago (Edited 1780d 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.

hollabox1780d ago (Edited 1780d ago )

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.

I wish Joel pulled Wing Chun on those clickers!!!!
