I've heard a lot of great things about these comics and I might just pick this up at some point. Isn't it about Ellie before she met up with Joel?

I'm gonna grab it, too.

All that I needed to see was "Druckmann."

Didn't know that there was a comic series.
Might need to check it out. Have yet to play the game (first PS3 this Black Friday), but I can already tell the setting would interest me, so a series like this may just be right up my alley.

You will not be disappointed. Easily one of my top 10 games of all time and I'm an avid gamer. I think I've played through it a total of 9 times.

Don't expect your usual run of the mill pacing for a game. Approach it as you would a great movie and let the story take you through the experience. Check every nook and cranny for letters and conversation opportunities and examine every room carefully so that you get an idea of who lived there. When it all eventually kicks off, you'll be blown away.

Man, are you in for a treat. Im jealous that you are going to see it with virgin eyes, i wish i could forget it and play it again to be amazed a 2nd time.

It will definitely be a thing. Haven't had time to really play games these last couple of years. Getting the career going, I could never justify buying the system.
Plan on grabbing a large amount of the exclusives once I get it.

I envy you as well.

I would love to be able to un-experience the game and do it over again.

That prologue/intro is going kick your head in. It kicked mine in.

If you like that kind of setting and story, then you went be upset. I'm not the only one who's said it's one of the finest pieces of post apocalyptic and zombie(ish) narrative out there.

You should post back with your experience because we're all hyped for you.

No, american dreams is about how ellie gets bit, and how her friend Riley dies.

Ellie mentions this at the end of the game, but you get to see it comic book fashion.

Spoilers dude, some people haven't played it yet (see above) and have no idea about Ellie. Not biting your hand off, just saying.

I will try to follow up on this. It sounds very interesting.

Can't wait, must buy for me.

I haven't read the comics I bought, the whole run with multiple copies.

As long as it comes to the states, I won't have to import this.
