The Last Guardian Gameplay Finally Revealed...and It's a Shooter? - Satire

"For those who were so distraught at the lack of Last Guardian-ness at Sony’s E3 Press Conference, you are finally about to get some good news. After being announced in 2009, The Last Guardian has finally seen the light of day, and after meeting in a secret location, taking a blood oath, and selling my kidney, Sony allowed me to get the first peek at what Team Ico has been working on." | Explosion.com (PS3, PS4, The Last Guardian)

This looks fake, I'm sure we'll see a "TLG is not a shooter" article soon.
Besides, of all reputable websites, this guy gets a first look?
Nevermind,I just saw that this was entered as opinion piece instead of news, great clickbait though

'This looks fake'

RyuCloudStrife  +   121d ago
It's a funny piece but unfortunately the satire in the headline spoiled it for me.
Pro Racer  +   121d ago
So TLG has been turned into the the Adventures of Commander McKillan and his giant fire-breathing, laser-shooting, shark-finned wolf-mount...

Day 1 purchase for me!

I would take anything at this point, I hope they say something soon.

This is great news, I really wanted more bro shooters. However if it's from team ICO, it will likely only have 6 things to shoot in the entire game.

LMFAO, that was pretty funny, I might add.

Even Sony CEO himself weigh in on twitter to comment one the status of the last Guardian.

CEO Kaz Hirai ‏@KazHiraiCEO

"The Last Guardian has not been cancelled. You can’t cancel a game that never really existed"

Clearly the people missed the "/S" for Sarcasm. Hoping The Last Guardian will make an appearance at this year's TGS and is now officially on PS4.

mydyingparadiselost  +   121d ago
This is so dumb, if the Last Guardian is a shooter then the Wolf head laser shooting guardian should be held in your hands and NOT a mount you ride. This game might as well now be a mech shooter and will fail cause that's too anime to be popular....

I would suggest someone tell this person to stick to writing about facts.

As his made up joke stories are awful.

A waste of Internet.
punctualdork  +   121d ago
No one forced you to read it.
Dubaman  +   121d ago
Yeah, because we ALL know the quality of an article before actually reading it.

Mr_Writer85  +   121d ago
And yet had a not read it I would of not been able to make a fair judgement.

I read it, didn't like it so made my opinion heard.

Gotta love freedom of speech :)
KingMe42  +   121d ago
A few comments down you say you love freedom of speech. Yet on your fist comment you pretty much tell the guy to stop writing what he wants to write.

What do you think that makes you look like? Hint it starts similar to hippopotamus and ends similar to district.
Mr_Writer85  +   121d ago
No I actually said some one should suggest he sticks to writing news.

A suggestion can be ignored can it not? Show how would suggesting something effect his right to exercise his freedom of speech?

Please I'd love to know...

Whats the hype surrounding this game when it hasnt even had any gameplay shown & its been in development hell since forever
Taislin  +   121d ago
It´s from the creators of ICO, and Showdow of the Colossus, two of the finest PS2 games, and games in general, to be produced.
JetsFool3500  +   121d ago
Ok thanks I thought it was some random game everybody was hyping
Studio-YaMi  +   121d ago
It actually HAD some gameplay footage when it was announced for the PS3 couple years ago,youtube it.

Not to mention the fact that it's made by the guy who made ICO & SoTC(SoTC being one of the best games for the PS2) pretty much makes everyone hyped for the game.

Call of Guardians: Last Duty
NixonMonoxide  +   121d ago
Lol people are still waiting for the Last Guardian?
Almost as pathetic as those who waited, and kept supporting FF VersusXIII hype.

I hope this vaporware meets fanboys' expectations...if it ever materializes.

Gamersheep always fail to call out devs/publishers on Bullshit.

"Well it takezz sew looong, because itz genius!! It'll be a masterpiece when teh gaem comez! Yew'll see!"

I get what you are saying but I don't think this topic is serious enough to call people sheep.
NixonMonoxide  +   121d ago
My statement is not based on the humorous article. Are you kidding me? Gamersheep are definitely responsible for the hilarious state of the industry today. I'll call em out anytime.

Keep waiting on The Last Guardian. Just like Versus XIII...But no wait! It's now XV, so please wait another 5 years lol!

Incomplete games, hilariously paying for a demo from Konami. Hell they should have done that with the idiot masses, for MGS3's Virtuous Mission. Need I go further?

The only reason this Vaporware gets any news, is because Sheep keep supporting. It'll be hilarious if it shows at TGS. "coming soon".

Bend over & open wide. TLG will definitely be worth the wait, and vapor.

How was supporting versus pathetic if we knew the game was coming and it still is? As is it now FF15?
SoulSercher620  +   121d ago
"Gamersheep always fail to call out devs/publishers on Bullshit."

Lol and you have? Show me where you've called out devs and publishers. Because if you haven't wouldn't that make you a gamersheep too?

And no calling BS on here is NOT calling out devs/publishers.
NixonMonoxide  +   120d ago
Alas, the point floats over your head.
As a matter of fact, I don't run out & support BS like mindless drones similar to yourself. I'm no journalist, don't have a youtube following. However as a simple consumer, I always vote with my wallet, and opinion.

Haven't supported any DRM form. Don't buy paperweights till they actually have games on them. Didn't even purchase titles like Arkham City, till it was in the bargain bin. (LOL locked single player content) I don't jump on hype trains, & certainly don't support vaporware like you do.

It's alright to be upset by my comments. Keep waiting for devs/pubs to drip feed you with sweet nothings. Open wide too. More "DLC", fake "gameplay videos", and "next gen" promises to feed the hive mind.

Purchase ULTRA SF4 - copy/paste edition & an extra copy of MGS V - The opening section.

Both Capcom & Konami clearly need your money.
Bend over & smile.
Skankinruby  +   121d ago
While its aggravating to get toyed with on a game that's been testing people's patience its sure relieving to see someone else mock the absurdity of most shooters these days and how popular they are.

I'm optimistic so until they announce its cancellation and confirm it, I'll expect the worst and hope for the best, besides, i have a enough to hold me over, Rayman Legends (solid platformer) AC (freedom cry) Dead Nation, Resogun, Strider (next month) SS, WD, BF4 plus many more to come TLoU, Garden Warfare 😉, some gameplay or new footage from The Guardian will be icing on the cake but I'm sure people will have something negative to say then so it's cool, i have nothing against MS, I can't wait to hear more on the new Crackdown, that was my favorite series from last gen, not to mention, GoW but since Cliff left, nothing was the same like Drake's last album, with that being said Sony is where it all started for me, many of us, if not all of us with its first system. Nintendo too but that's another story for my son to tell lol...

*This article was (obviously) written in jest. The Last Guardian is never coming out, I’m sorry I broke your heart. In all sincerity, shooters are great, in fact a shooter was one of my favorite games last year. But if you can’t appreciate the ridiculousness of shooters and think I am a terrible person, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Read the article before raging.
