Don't you guys get it? The DLC will be TLOU: The Musical ♫
Maddens Raiders  +   792d ago
That was truly epic. Thanks for the lulz.
Ezz2013  +   792d ago
The Les Misérables of Us XD
thorstein  +   792d ago
Seriously though. Can you imagine: The Last of Us Musical.

Green Day did something amazing with the their American Idiot Album turning it into a musical.

Why not this?

They were incredible BTW!!!

OMG Marlene and Joel are legend. Some of the most talented voice actors ever. Naughty Dog is legend.
Joe913  +   792d ago
Isn’t Troy Baker Joel who voices Marlene?
brodychet  +   792d ago
Troy baker is voiced by Nolan North who voices Marlene's Ellie. Drake. Bioshock. ??

ND is the best game developer on the face of planet earth today.
showtimefolks  +   791d ago

SeraphimBlade  +   792d ago
Wait, the outbreak starts today? Like, canonically?

... man, this is gonna be the worst birthday ever...
Crazay  +   792d ago
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, You now have the cordyceps and you're head will explode and you're going to die.
Ezz2013  +   792d ago
well, if that was my last day on earth i would love to meet that Breast in your avatar ...err...i mean that girl
SeraphimBlade  +   792d ago
Well, at least I can celebrate it with some FUNGUYS :D
itBourne  +   792d ago

iamnsuperman  +   792d ago
Damn. I weirdly would have liked to have that scene.

Glad they didnt go with the camp version..
iamnsuperman  +   792d ago
I didn't think it was "camp". It was actually quite powerful. Marlene signing, unexpectedly, was captivating and very powerful. It did tail of into ridiculousness with the bang bang bit. Musicals are not always "camp"

If you don't think that was camp I would question what it is you do actually find camp.... There was absolutely nothing 'Powerful' about that at all.

It was a pathetic, camp, hipster, alternative, scene. That didn't work on any level. It was just cringe-worthy & horrible & I wish they just would of kept it a secret instead of ruining the game with it.

"I wish they just would of kept it a secret instead of ruining the game with it."

how did seeing an alternate ending that didnt even make into the full retail game ruin the game for you? People just take things to the extreme for no reason at times.
dboyc310  +   792d ago
Exactly it's called having fun. It's good that it's not all just about work. They get to mess around and stuff. The whole crew were just laughing their butts out in the background. Would have done the same.
Neo-Axl  +   792d ago
Not very open minded are you, it was a funny blooper, nothing serious. Take the time to enjoy it for what it is.
GryestOfBluSkies  +   792d ago
that was amazing. i cant believe they all kept a straight face!
astar123456789  +   792d ago
just great!! I want the DLC now
AKS  +   792d ago
That was awesome.
Crazay  +   792d ago
I hated that video...seriously I absolutely hated it. Give me the GD DLC already and if you want to do a real alternate ending, I'll happily watch.

Thank god there's at least 1 man left among us!
noisemedia  +   792d ago
To be honest I wasnt into it either...the intro came up and I was like "oh cool, something different...alright!" and then?

Well, I dont know, it was kind of embarrassing.
brave27heart  +   792d ago
Seriously you "men" need to lighten up a bit. Its intense doing a powerful scene over and over, so having a bit of fun at the end is a great way to end the shoot.

Your partners must feel so lucky they have such fun loving happy people to share their lives with.
Tiqila  +   791d ago
this ending was a joke that simply not everyone (me included) likes. It was not funny at all, it was embarrassing and stupid and a total depreciation of the rest of this awesome game.

Sure if those actors had fun, good for them. If it was included as an alternate ending, why should I care? I dont, but I still find this ending a huge failure and there is nothing wrong with stating ones opinion as Crazay and 1nsomniac did.

Your partner surely must love your bitterness brave27heart. Keep on blaming people for having an opinion.. nice guy you are.
Kingdom Come  +   792d ago
This shows Troy's acting capabilities to great effect. His improvisation, his maintenance of a serious composure. Brilliant...
superbhoy  +   792d ago
I think he kind of expected something after neill d repeatedly told him to carry on no matter what
Eonjay  +   792d ago
OMG... That was legend.
Convas  +   792d ago
Pavarotti mode when he was shooting had me in stitches.

I would've been deceased if after the entire game, they threw this in at the end. Greatest ending ever.
Conzul  +   792d ago
They should have thrown it in during the credits like they did with his bit in Bioshock Infinite.
chobit_A5HL3Y  +   792d ago
would have been nice if they released some extra content for today :/ i'm still waiting for a co-op mode of some kind~
Douchebag696  +   792d ago
Grave  +   792d ago
So will they have another announcement tomorrow telling us that there will be an announcement next week. omgwtfbbq!
CrossingEden  +   792d ago
Lol, Troy Baker is an amazing actor. That was hilarious.
DeletedAcc  +   792d ago
made my day
matrixman92  +   792d ago
wtf...they clearly said the dlc would be announced today. This is getting almost as ridiculous as the Bioshock dlc announcement was
PFFT  +   792d ago
PSnation4  +   792d ago
gta V --> the last of us --> bioshock infinite
macethedon  +   792d ago
All 3 of them are completely different games.
NarooN  +   791d ago
What are you trying to get at here? Why is GTA V pointing at The Last of Us? Did TLoU steal his lunch money?
Hazmat13  +   792d ago
les misérables the video game!
spok22  +   792d ago
epic haha
solidjun5  +   792d ago
The DLC is a full fledge musical expansion with the cast of Cats.
I_AM_ CANADIAN_1989  +   792d ago
You do realize If they give an alternate ending they ruin the epic plot of the next game. So ask your spoiled ass this before you whine some more.... Do you want some dlc that lasts like 25 minutes or do you want a drama filled angry 15 year old Ellie finding out the truth all in a FULL GAME on the ps4?

Without spoilers I already have tons of plot ideas for a sequel, only can imagine what naughty dog has planned.

The easiest way to do another game in that universe is to use the time gap in the beginning of the game. They could fill in so much back.story to how all the characters met, betrayals, and how they got to where the game picks up after the intro.
megamanX2  +   792d ago
yawn.... another uncharted game.
Ravenor  +   791d ago
I can tell you've played The Last of Us.

I would like to see the reaction of joels brother camp and what happens there,and running errands for him and what not. Or maybe even adding a horde mode offline/online.
90Supra  +   792d ago
im glad they didn't go that route...haha
serratos27  +   792d ago
Sitting in class and I've had to stop from bursting out with laughter haha the improvision was great. TLoU Musical. Coming to theatres Summer 2014
WitWolfy  +   791d ago
I dont want there to be an alt ending! I'm scared it will ruin the awesome irony of the ending we already have.
Midgus  +   791d ago
such great improvisation, i adore this game, was kinda cool seeing that scene haha. i'm glad dlc details are slowly emerging now, it's been too long!
