Last of Us looks absolutely amazing. Then again, if its a Zombie theme, I'm there...Also liked the look of Fortnite, graphics look a little TF2'ish. Methinks 2012 is going to be another good year for gaming.

granthinds1691d ago

I know! I'm so excited!!! Some awesome things going down...

iChii1690d ago

Ikr?! And theres still E3! Can't wait to see what they'll announce!

I hope to want The Last Guardian and a Dead Space 3 announcement(I can dream, right?) at E3.

So Naughty Dog comes out with The Last Of Us and Epic comes out with Fortnite. Cliffy B must be kicking himself! TLOU looks way better.

TheOtherTheoG1690d ago (Edited 1690d ago )

You act like Epic designed their $20 downloadable tower defense/survival game to compete with Naughty Dog's AAA blockbuster post-apocalyptic action adventure.

The idea is that the two don't need to compete, they are very different bar the recurring theme of zombies, and both in their own way look excellent. I sincerely doubt they were trying to compete with The Last of Us, it's like saying that Bastion was designed to compete with Skyrim.

HappyTrigger1690d ago (Edited 1690d ago )

I don't know why TheOtherTheoG got a disagree and why Stuart5756 has 21 agrees. These games were never meant to compete. They look NOTHING alike. Different style of art & gameplay from the looks of it.

I don't understand where this hype of The Last of Us is coming from. The trailer itself was pretty average other than the graphics. But it's Naughty Dog so I guess that's why (which is a good enough reason I guess since ND have earned their reputation).

Convas1690d ago

Stuart5756's agree to disagree ratio shows what's wrong with this site. This incessant need to compare things.

iChii1690d ago (Edited 1690d ago )

Why do you compare those two games as if they were on the same train? -.- Fortnite looks fun and funny (in a good way) while TLOU looks Survival/Horror/Emotional. Oh and are you forgetting Epic Games are the creators of GEARS OF WAR? Stfu troll.

Drake1171690d ago

TLOU looks amazing but i mean seriously they are completely different games/genres. The amount of agrees this guy got is pathetic lol.

Stuart57561690d ago

I'm simply saying TLOU looks better, they're both zombie games. I've just read an article that compares RDR Undead Nightmare & COD Zombie modes to the original Resi games! Theres nothing wrong with comparing zombie games with different art styles or platform, download only or disc release. Epic is a AAA dev and so are ND, what they announced at the Spike VGA's couldn't favour ND more. Fortnite looks like a game Rare would have made 10 years ago!

Kurt Russell1690d ago

Are comparing FMV's now? Neither displayed gameplay - neither looked similar... thicko's.

Wait a sec, The Last of Us doesn't look anything "yet" we just got a trailer, we've yet to see anything of how the game will play other than a strong hint of survival elements.

I know ND is a great dev and all, but lets wait and see what the game is and how it's played before we call it.

frostypants1690d ago (Edited 1690d ago )

The trailer looked amazing for a PS3-rendered scene, hence the excitement. Everyone thought Uncharted 2/3 and Heavy Rain were the furthest it could be taken.

I'll still give you an Agree though, because I do want to see the actual gameplay and have a better idea of what it will entail.

WobblyOnion1691d ago

I think the fact that platinum is working on MGS:Rising is the most exciting bit of news. :D

granthinds1691d ago

Ye, they're going to make some magic outta that thing.

gunnerforlife1690d ago (Edited 1690d ago )

Hope you guys are talking about the 360 version being Amazing...

sasmanator1691d ago

I cannot wait for The Last Of Us!!!! Anything naught Dog is just pure Awesome!! ....But that's just me.

WobblyOnion1691d ago

I have to say it - but I was a little disappointed with Uncharted 3; it was more of the same of the rather incredible Uncharted 2, and IMHO Naughty Dog failed to meet the bar they set.

I am keen on Last of Us for two reasons though; it's intriguing as ND's first M-rated title - and it means the next Uncharted can be "cooked" a little longer.

sasmanator1691d ago

I have yet to finish Uncharted 3. I'm dragging it out as long as i can. But from where i am, I absolutely loved it. But of course opinions will vary.

And Yes, The Last of Us does seem really really intriguing.
But I'm sure Uncharted 3 wasn't effected by The Last Of Us development since it's from a different team. Right?

Anyway. I have faith. :)

LolololRumz1690d ago

I have to agree somewhat that they didn't meet the bar they already set but saying that U3 was one of the best games I've played in a while.

MysticStrummer1690d ago

it was more of the same of the rather incredible Uncharted 2, and IMHO Naughty Dog failed to meet the bar they set.

You not only have an incredibly silly complaint there, but also contradict yourself in the same sentence. Bravo.

DonaldBeck1691d ago

the last of us was sweet looking, the vibe was good.

Edito1691d ago

I loved U3 they still playing it :-) and enjoying but damn Last Of Us is in another level way beyond, the theme, colors, atmosphere, characters set etc it's just awesome... can't wait...
