Recent news from Twitter and possible leaked photo reveal what Naughty Dog may have in store for us in the coming months for The Last Of Us 2.
Last of us 2 masterpiece?
Ramping up for sure. https://mobile.twitter.com/...
Lost legacy was epic & people thought ND couldn't make a UC game without Nate. TLOU2 will be awesome & because of TLL, I have no doubt that they will make it Great.
Naughty Dog sequels always dramatically improve over the original. Can't wait to see all the news for this title as more info gets released
Depends for me. Crash, I agree. Jak, I agree. Uncharted, mostly. I thought 2 was better than 1, 3 was worse than 2, and 4 is on par with 2 (So better than 3). For simplicity, [2=4] > 3 > 1. Any way you slice it, they were all great games. I think The Last of Us Part II has the potential to be as good as the original. It has to be the U2/4/The Last of Us team doing it though. With the new blood to maybe offer even more creative vision though, I think it has the potential to be their best game yet. I have faith in Naughty Dog. All things considered, my bare minimum expectation for The Last of Us Part II is "on par with the original".
Well said. The Last of Us Part 2 has a lot of hype, which I'm sure will rise even more when ND showcase the first gameplay reveal. I can't wait for that. I'm sure it'll be awesome, brutal, and intense. On the story front, I expect it to be on par with the original game. I remember Neil saying something along the lines of "Will Part 2 have moments that surpass the emotional/raw scene with Joel & Ellie at the cabin? I don't know. I know this game will have its own moments that I hope resonates with the player. In the end, ND knows our concerns and worries, for they have the same feelings. But they believe in continuing this story. I have faith in them. Also, I remember hearing either Josh, Neil or Bruce mention that the pressure they feel ( amongst themselves in the studio ) is way more nerve racking than what the public thinks. ND will give all they have do try & deliver a better game than the original. I have faith it'll be a wonderful gaming experience no matter if it's better or just a few steps behind the original game.
i'd say they are preparing for PSX now. it is mostly graphic and UI department they are searching for so i guess they wanna show tech improvements.
you do your best Naughty Dog I want Part 2 to be at least on bar or better than Part 1 and i know you will deliver.
Like Godfather Part 2. If the story is on the same level as the first, and they improve on some aspects this will no doubt be another GOTY.
Or maybe its already for their next game, because TLOU 2 should be already at full speed.
The Last of Us Part 2 running on all cylinders now that The Lost Legacy was released
Naughty Dog second game in each franchise is usually the best, going by the quality of the Original Last of Us and seeing how Crash or Uncharted evolve from OG to Sequel, I think shit will go down.
Topping TLOU is a big bill, even for ND.
But people attack FFVIIIR when SE does it
I'm guessing we won't see this until late 2018 early 2019.
I have no skills in programming or game design. But i really really like the last of us.Can you just hire me and let me sit there to watch you guys do your work?
Have you ever watched programmers work? It's very dull, go watch some paint drying instead if you want excitement. If it was exciting I'd charge people to watch me.
Watched paint dried for while, then i moved on to watching hair grow on some guy's head. But instead of growing it fell off his head. He no longer have hair. So now i want to watch a programmer program.
So maybe I should set up a twitch channel, then people can watch me staring at my screens, reading, occasionally typing, looking puzzled when stuff doesn't work, swearing when stuff really doesn't work, and when things are working sitting there with the VR headset on trying to find the next problem to fix.
Why would they be hiring though, wouldn't a game company as big as that have people for the job already?
People tend to leave studios regularly, so you need to hire people to fill the holes.
A good portion of game developers are contract employees who are let go when there is no project to work on, or when their services on a particular project are no longer required. Artists tend to be the most volatile position, because art tends to be one of those things you don't need a full development crew on until a lot of the pre-production is finalized, and near the end, you don't need as many people to optimize. The reason for this is that it's cheaper than keeping people on staff during times when they won't be doing much. This is nowhere near out of the ordinary. Job security is not all that great working in the industry unless you have a specialized skill which is hard to fill. Artists and general programmers tend to be more easily found, particularly for a studio as esteemed as ND.
Guess they are going full production into this now since they finished Uncharted Lost Legacy. Can't wait for this masterpiece. I predict we will see something at Playstation Experience in December and have a release date in 2019.
Full speed ahead! And may the force be with you Neil!
Like the first changed the way games brings emotions and a fantastic narrative ... this one I believe will take it to the next level. I can't wait to hear more about this titan of a game .
Yayy its about time development got shifted from 1st gear into overdrive... Cannot wait for this masterpieve... Naughty Dog, Gorilla Games, Polyphany, and Santa Monics Studios are firing on all cylinders atm. And games will be dropling like bombs BOOM
Can't wait for Crackdown 3. /s
I hope it has a decent MP
I am playing Uncharted: Lost Legacy at present and the game is excellent. If Naughty Dog can come up with such a game from what originally was supposed to be DLC from a small team but which then morphed into a standalone game, imagine what they can do with the entire studio and then some working on TLOU 2. I suspect it will be even better than the first one. Carry on, Naughty Dog!
Nice going to be another awesome exclusive. Love me some games games games.
The last of us is one of the best stories I have experienced and still my favorite Mp.
They are still hiring? This game is years away
I wonder if they're hired any of the losers from Bioware since the mass exodus? hahaha who am i kidding!
