The Last Of Us DLC: A Reason to be Disappointed?

Sean Halliday of Pixel Gate writes:


After much discussion and speculation, the first piece of story-driven DLC for The Last of Us has been revealed–and people are a little disheartened.

The general vibe from the fan base is that the Ellie/Joel story arc originally ended in a more than satisfying manner, and thus revisiting either character would be a mistake. I personally agree with this notion as I feel that The Last of Us‘ universe had plenty more stories to tell outside of the game’s central pairing, which concluded satisfyingly'' (PS3, The Last Of Us)

It's more Ellie so I'm in no way disappointed. Just hearing her voice brought a smile to my face. She has easily become one of my favorite characters of all time. Can't wait.

I think Ellie is probably the character most people will instantly think of when anyone mentions The last of Us. I don't find DLC based on her a bad thing, nor do i see it as a great thing, more a safe bet if you get what i mean?

That's true. I would have died to see Ish story.

In my opinion, Joel is also a mesmerizing character. I love how badaIss he was when I was playing as him. However, I've found out that Ellie is one of the bravest characters in the world of video game dramas... I just can't forget her. :D

I listed the Ish story in my wish list of DLC for The Last of Us, think the link is in our submissions page of N4G ^^

True. Ellie is the reason why TLoU story worked so well and I still want TLoU2 with her as the main character.

I"m more worried about what the gameplay is going to be like. She won't be as capable as she was in the Winter chapter.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that we'll probably get to play as both Ellie and Riley. Riley, being older, is probably a lot more capable.

If she can't use guns, it's gonna be quite the disappointment for me.

I like the idea of exploring ellies back story.. See how she lost her innocence so to speak.. seems like an interesting side plot..

Gonna probably be difficult facing infected and probably clickers with just two little girls.

Hopefully they do Ish next.

I was hoping for the missing years in between the breakout and 20 some years later. Would have loved to see Joel scalping people for their clothes/food whilst disposing of them like it was nothing. That and the falling out with his brother and how he came to meet Ish.

So many stories to tell, so little time.

im disappointed that i cant play the last of us anyway coz of the cut scenes fucking up all the time, how can it take 5 minutes to load some of a cut scene.. does anyone know of a fix for this? it would be greatly appreciated.
