Druckmann saves 'special scene' for after The Last of Us One Night Live stream; internet rage ensues

GameZone: "So tonight, on the eve of The Last of Us: Remastered's release, Naughty Dog and Sony hosted a special show: The Last of Us One Night Live. It was basically a re-enactmenet of key scenes from the game featuring the voice actors who brought the characters to life, and directed by Neil Druckmann. It was pretty amazing to watch, even if you had to tune in online.
But you know what? The mood was spoiled when it was revealed that those in attendance of the event were treated to "something special" that those who had to watch from home wouldn't be allowed to see." (PS3, PS4, The Last Of Us, The Last Of Us Remastered)

Felt like such a F U to had a stream, why not keep it on to show us.

Its like when they pull this shit at comic con, showing trailers and clips yet not showing people who cant attend. Agents Age of Ultrons clip for example

Calm down people calm down. I'm pretty sure there's a good explanation.
Debaitable  +   564d ago
I'm assuming that with the recent talks he had at SDCC that this is an epilogue direction he had not settled with yet. If it was meant for everyone to see it would have been included with Remastered addition.

The talks I was mentioning which I read elsewhere is someone asked TLOU2 @ the Q&A. Druckmann passed the question to Sam Raimi who said if there ever was a sequel, he preferred Druckmann continue Ellie & Joel's story line.

I have yet to play the game so no spoilers!!!. I stopped playing once they announced the remaster.
Debaitable  +   564d ago
Well if you want to see those clips then attend Comic Con. Most people go out there way to make sure they attend an event that sells out quick so I don't see why they can't get something special.

Entitlements. Ha.
-Foxtrot  +   564d ago

Yeah because people who live half way round the world are going to be able to casually go to comic San Diego. That's excluding travel expensivea and all thay jazz

Entitlements? Wanting to see something open to the public when it was being recorded anyway.

Here we go, because it's NaughtyDog nothing is going to be said....but god forbid if it was anyone else, people woild be just as ticked of. Just because they are a good studio dosent mean they can do no wrong guys.

And what gives you the impression that everyone at Comic Con is locals only? You don't think people from your side of the world don't attend? Should the champion of a fighting tournament share his winnings because everyone tried their best?

Just because it's unfortunate for you not to go, people who are attending shouldn't suffer your same fate.

That's life, get over it.
itBourne  +   564d ago
I agree with both sides, for you attending, especially if you are dedicated enough to set it up and travel a long ways, then why not reward the fans. To the same extent, they were already streaming.. so why stop it, or why say anything about it.

I got a feeling it will be released at some point though, I doubt that is the only time it will ever be shown, willing to bet its been set up when and how to release it.
Deadpoolio  +   564d ago
Why exactly are there so many people that clearly need to Google the word teaser, well either that or learn to read/listen....There is a reason 99.9% of the things shown at Comic con are called teasers..They are meant to tease not show you anything more than a tease....
-Foxtrot  +   564d ago
Most of the stuff shown off at comic con were not small teasers, they were actual footage from the films or series.

Foxtrot, no offense but you are such a drama queen with your comments. I'm sure whatever it was will be be up for all to view eventually, regardless of what Druckmann asked.

@foxtrot, stop being so bloody dramatic. People who bothered to attend the show had something extra and that s only fair. That s all.
Naughty dog has better things to do than upsetting their fans.just be patient and I m sure it will come on YouTube pretty soon.
MeliMel  +   564d ago
Yes, I knew I wasnt the only one who felt like that about Foxy.

Just let it go.
HeavenlySnipes  +   564d ago
People that took the time to be there in person should be able to have a special experience

I don't mind it

Fox once again you've proven that you rarely think before opening your mouth. -_-

Eh, its a nice surprise for those who attended. Lucky them.

The description sounds great. My life aint going to change because I never got to see it..
Joe913  +   564d ago
I do not think the scene was a big deal if they would have teased TLOU 2 I would be pissed and I agree and was telling my brother yesterday that not releasing trailers is a bad thing it doesn't piss me off because they usually get leaked anyway but still I think comic con should take notes from video game industry because with E3 it seems like they have been trying to make the show better for the people at home they should do the same with comic con that way you take care of all your fans not just the ones that could come it would be cool if they start to do something like what Sony did with the movie theaters.

I was there last night and I can tell you it was amazing, but every single one of you would've said the same thing I said, "That was cool, but I would never want that to be the ending. It would've felt way too forced. Leaving an ambiguous ending is 100% the right decision."
explicitbaron  +   563d ago
Naughty Dog doesn't owe people anything. They chose to stream it, if you were not at the live event too bad. The stream was free.
MrSwankSinatra  +   564d ago
You see this is the type of crap i can't stand. This happened with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with comic-con behind closed doors gameplay, DOOM's demo at quakecon and now this. If fans can't see any of this then there is no point of announcing this crap. Keep it yourselves a F off.
Parapraxis  +   564d ago
Waaaah, cry me a river.
I think the FANS who actually attended these events are allowed to see some stuff others can't.
How about you F off.
MrSwankSinatra  +   564d ago
I guess people who don't attend or can't attend these events aren't fans then huh??? You're the last person who should be saying cry me a river when you're crying all over the comment section telling people to grow up over and over, hypocrisy at it's finest. Every single person can't just casually travel all the way to these event's because most people in the world have actual responsibilities. So do I really need some asshat rubbing like geoff keigley and/or bethesda officials rubbing crap like this in my face or anyone else's? No, we don't hence why I said keep it to yourself or F the hell off. It's pretty simple logic, they literally asked for the rage that has ensued.

I am a huge gaming fan, and a huge batman fan.

However I have this thing, it's called a life outside of gaming. In this life I have work, a house to pay for, I share this house with my wife and our 1 year old boy.

So jetting off to SDCC or any other CC/GC just to watch a teaser is not really on the cards not when you are a grown up and have a grown up life.

Yeah okay fine, they paid so they get to see things first, but why not release it to those fans who can't make it?

Or because I put my wife and child first I am not worthy of being called a fan?

@ Mr_Writer85 because they owe you nothing that's why Mr. GrownUpLife, I love The Last of Us and it's one of my favorite games but I am not upset that Neil did a special live action epilogue to the game that I may never get to see.

I am not owed this nor do I feel like I am entitled to it, also so what if you do have what you call a life. If you have a life than you should have been able to attend no problem but instead you use your family as an excuse to not have been able to go and do something unless you were just scraping by and it that was the case I wouldn't be upset about not seeing some teasers or some bonus thing game makers did. I'd be more concerned with other more important things.

In short just grow the hell up.

The extra scene sounds beautiful and I have no problem with allowing my imagination to fill in the gaps.

I don't know why I am getting disagrees, I just stated what he said. I literally wrote nothing about my own opinions on the matter
Soldierone  +   564d ago
I don't get it, I don't get the idea behind this new trend. What is the purpose of giving attendees something like that extra?

I'm sure they got shirts or something too, so lets make it worse and cut out the viewers even more. It makes no sense. Especially for events like SDCC where people WANT to go as is, but simply CANT. Tickets sell out within days! So lets hide everything. What?

The Doom thing really ticked me off, and Bethesda shoved their head even further up their arse by making up BS excuses for it.

I'm not 100 percent mad at just TLOU doing this, I just want this dumb trend to stop, and stop now!
matrixman92  +   564d ago
each person in attendance got a steelbook(originally germany exclusive) and a Gustavo CD
Soldierone  +   564d ago
See, and as a person there I would be thrilled to just get that. Why the hell do they need to provide "exclusive footage" to them too? It doesn't make sense to me at all.
Parapraxis  +   564d ago
" Why the hell do they need to provide "exclusive footage" to them too?"
Because they can.
Grow the hell up, the world doesn't revolve around you, or anybody for that matter.

People paid good money to attend, they can be given whatever the presenters want.

I don't bitch and moan about missing out on Q&A's put on after shows, or special events for attendees at other events. Or getting a slice of cake at a kids birthday party I wasn't invited to.
Grow UP!
Soldierone  +   564d ago
@ above and below, Okay, and that helps with lack of tickets to get there? I now need to attend every single event every single developer puts on just to see clips of games? Good luck getting you comic con tickets for next year, and have fun with those plane tickets to different regions.

"Grow the hell up" Seems to be the answer from people incapable of responding to anything logically lol So just say "grow up" then make a illogical comparison and pretend you are boss. :P

Funny you complain about this when Bethesda does it for Doom, you get support. You say the same thing in TLOU article, you get hate and "well they do what they want"...... lol Okay then, keep doing it then. See how many people still sit through hour long conferences just to get cut off.
crusf  +   564d ago
Simple you pay money and give up your freetime at home for well earned exclusive footage.

Grow the hell up, the world doesn't revolve around you, or anybody for that matter."

That COULD of been a fair point if not a few seconds later you had a complete Gavin with...

"People paid good money to attend, they can be given whatever the presenters want."

But it DOES revolve around those people?

But you said it doesn't revolve around us or anyone else?

But because they paid they get more.

Despite the world not revolving around them.

They still get more?

See how this becomes an endless cycle.

So they do something special JUST for the people that were there, and everyone cries about it? They did the One Night Live stream, that we didnt know was coming so its a nice surprise, but NOOOOO, thats not good enough is it?

God people are so whiny now. It wouldnt be something special just for them if they showed it to everyone would it?

Plus, I'm pretty sure youre going to see it sooner or later, its the information age, how can it stay secret? Hell, its probably on the PS4 disc.

These are the kind of people who think everyone should get a trophy on sports day.

but i hope he will release this soon, because, goddamn it, it's sound like awesome

Thats retarded... Its the same thing with trailers from Comic-con that gets pulled from the internet. I mean really? People already saw it! I dont see the point of not releasing it to the public. Its a hugeeeee F-U to fans who couldnt make the event. Same applies to this, im sure a lot of people wanted to see the scene, why piss them off...
Revengeance  +   564d ago
Wow I'm surprised a lot of people are upset over this. I get ya'll are upset and why but you have to look at it a different way. These people went out of their way to attend TLOU One Night Live even though they could've just as easily watched it at home like the rest of us. People come from different states and countries to attend conventions or tournaments like EVO for example. I think the people in attendance do deserve something a little special.
1nsomniac  +   564d ago
I don't get why it's an issue never mind a big deal. So there was something extra shown to the people who attended....

Wasn't this at least expected in some form or another???

This generally happens with any form of live show in existence - comedy show, live TV show, movie premiers. If you were upset by this I would typically assume you're a spoilt little brat of around 10 years old, but then again this industry has so many of them we should of maybe seen it coming after all!
