“The Last of Us” Looks Awesome

The PlayStation 3 exclusive title “The Last of Us” definitely has a lot of people talking. The survival horror/adventure game being developed by Naughty Dog, takes place in a post apocalyptic world where most of the population has been infected by some sort of virus that turns them into zombie like beings. Like most post-apocalyptic games and movies, the infected attack the uninfected.

Well the game was supposed to be shown at the last e3, and naughty Dog wants to take their time with this one since they felt rushed with U3. I say, let them take their time, so we can get an even more incredible experience. But seeing at e3 would be awesome. Very excited for this game.

If UC3 is ND being "rushed" then wow. Just WOW!!!

Sevir2459d ago

Every one of them except the first have had a 18 moth to 2 year cycle and they all turned out to be amazing so if they rushed UC3 and it endedup being as fantastic as it was then this game is gonna blow us away!

i know you didn't mean it
because uncharted 3 was "F" amazing
by far one of the very best of this generation along with batman AC and RDR/RDR:UN

ND Quality, never disappoints...

RedDead2459d ago (Edited 2459d ago )

UC3 disappointed some...why? ****ed if I know, UC3 was amazing.

Uncharted 2 was pretty hard to follow up on in terms of sheer badassness. They did a great job, but even for me, Uncharted 2 was still more memorable. They're both sick games though.

Pushagree2459d ago

Uncharted 3 brought up a lot of plot points that it did not answer in the end. Drake is apparently using an alias, but we dont know his real name. Elena and Drake were apparently engaged, but it was only hinted at. It was aslo suggested that sully was not as trustworthy as he seems, but again, that was dropped. Any of these could have added depth to the story and made it seems like an actual sequel instead of an upgrade, but ND could not make that sequel jump like they did from UC1-UC2.

Hope we see more of this at E3

MariaHelFutura2460d ago

You don't need to hope, you will.

TekoIie2460d ago

I'm expect a gameplay combination of Alan wake, uncharted and resident evil 5. Personally think that would make a good combination :)

MariaHelFutura2460d ago

I would think more like an semi-open world Uncharted/I am alive.

TekoIie2460d ago

Yeh but Alan wake is about survival, uncharted platforming and then resi 5s ammo and weapon searching. Personally think it would be a good combination as long as there's an emphasis on survival rather than shooting :)

A-Glorious-Dawn2460d ago

I doubt it will even be semi-open world.

They said before that it was less linear to uncharted, but that does not mean semi-open world, which would be like Dark Souls.

Not all games have to be like this though, and Linear games are great as long as they are done masterfully.

SeanScythe2459d ago

Wish it was more like Infamous/Batman:AC

DigitalRaptor2460d ago (Edited 2460d ago )

I don't think the game will be very comparable to any of those games. Alan Wake is about the psychological and dark environment scares and the cinematics. Uncharted is about over the top action blockbuster cinematic experience. Resident Evil 5 is about shooting zombies or "las plagas" for most of the game.

So for comparison, The Last of Us does factor in the psychological, but it's mainly about the survival and the grounded humanity aspect of the game and you're not gonna be running through a forest area with a gun for most of the game. It's also not going to be a light-hearted affair like with Uncharted. It will be bleak and very serious. And we already know that the "infected" are not going to be as prominent as the human enemies, so I can't see it being very Resident Evil 5 either.

I guess you could say TLOU implements some gameplay features present in some of those games, but it's meant to form its own identity, you know. Just like those other games have - I don't think there's any need for such comparison.

not the phrase I would use

Kyosuke_Sanada2460d ago

I'd rather awesome than "epic!"
