I Just Saw The Last of Us in Action, and It Looks Amazing - Kotaku

"Well, first, of all, beautiful. The post-apocalypse in Naughty Dog's game is a gorgeous wreck, a city drained of electricity and overgrown with foliage." (Naughty Dog, PS3, The Last Of Us)

And to think trolls used to be so smart and now they just babble what ever pops up in their heads.

Anyway back on topic. This is looking like it's going to be an interesting survival game and we haven't even gotten to the monsters yet.I want to see the difference between out witting the people and outwitting the monsters. It makes it even better that Ellie and Joel aren't trained fighters or anything. This will make it just as good as any Silent Hill or Resident Evil game . If they get the survival horror, fight for your life, desperation thing right, I am sold.

Im interested in if we can "explore" the city in this game. No one ussually wants to look at a train wreck, unless its a gorgeous train wreck like this lol :). Love the overgrown environment!

"She's impressed with his fighting prowess. He says it's because he's been on both sides of these kinds of survival ambushes".

BAM!!!! The game hasnt even been truly "shown" and we already have a potential backstory for a character!

They said the game will be a "wide-linear" its more open than Uncharted, but not to the extent of an open world game... the best example I could think of is Bioshock...

Hell The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite two games I am excited for, have some awesome similarities

1) The main character in both is voiced by Troy Baker
2) The main character is tasked of excorting a girl out of the main setting
3) They do not know each other, but soon form a bond throughout the game

I love that idea, and thats why these 2 are my most hyped for games of 2013... bioshock used to be for this year :(

But I guess, they get more time to create something incredible

If they buy a PS3 the people will get a chance to play their games.
asmith2306  +   1144d ago
Everyone does have a chance to play their games, it's called a PS3!
MrMister  +   1143d ago
Nope, ND believes in making real games, rather than apps (Microsoft) or gimmicky motion controls (Nintendo). Plus ND is loyal as hell. Where would they be today if Sony didn't believe in them and support them 100% during the last 14-15 years? So, Sony is the place to be. Without Sony right now, the game industry would quickly be heading down the tubes. Facebook games and I-pod games crap would over-saturate the market, and people would not need consoles since MS is more interested in social apps, and Nintendo is only interested in pleasing casuals and soccer moms with their lame controllers. Sony will be the ONLY safe haven for REAL game developers, and real hardcore gamer's. Fact (At least until Nintendo wakes up and makes a console that gamer's actually give a crap about).

Will there be monsters? R we even sure of that yet? Maybe i need to research it more.
fragnificent  +   1143d ago
I thought ND said, when it was first announced that it wasn't a survival Horror, more Survival adventure?,Just wondering. i cant remember lol
Titanz  +   1144d ago
That's great to hear
I can only imagine the type of experiences, future consoles will bring.

I cant wait to see what they saw hopefully it gets shown at E3.
BrutallyBlunt  +   1144d ago
There will be footage at E3 and i expect it to look amazing. I love games that can deliver great tension. The original Dead Space comes to mind. We need more games like this and less sequels.
inveni0  +   1144d ago
Less sequels? Without sequels, we would have no Uncharted 2 and 3, inFamous 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, Portal 2, etc, etc, etc.

I love new IPs, and that's why I like when they get sequels.
sikbeta  +   1143d ago
I want a Demo @ E3 ala U2 back in 09 totally blown away by the awesomeness of the game in a giant screen, can't get better than that

I expect the graphics to be great and all, but its the story that really has me interested and the focus on the characters. Its an area that lacks attention big time this generation.
When i think of my fave games, MGS3, Bioshock, Red Dead Redemption, games like these, they usually have really affecting characters and story.
I really think this game could be special.
Rynx  +   1144d ago
C'mon really? You're talking about Naughty Dog here.
OcelotRigz  +   1143d ago
What are you saying, like, "c'mon, of course its gonna be a great story and characters because its naughty dog" or "c'mon, the story is gonna be terrible, because its naughty dog"?

I assume its the first and i agree, the sound and look of the game would have me interested any day, but the fact that its Naughty Dog who's making it has me excited for this game. Really excited.
GamingPerson  +   1144d ago
I have to say.. The best thing I did besides buying a pc is buying a ps3 to go next to it.

If games look like this I can't wait for ND to play with 2 GB+ ram on ps4.

DarkSniper  +   1144d ago | Funny
Dark Sniper has been saying it all along, The Last of Us is gearing up to be the greatest PlayStation exclusive ever made. Dark Sniper will reserve further opinion once he plays the game, because there are several PlayStation®3 exclusives that has a debatable case in "The Best Ever".

Considering that Naughty Dog has made a slam dunk every time they release a game(Crash Bandicoot, Crash Team Racing, Jak and Daxter, Uncharted), it should come at no surprise to anyone how great The Last of Us is turning out. But yet it seems that they continually raise the bar by surpassing their own greatness each and every time.

The Cell Processor and the RSX has once again collaborated in perfect synchronization with each other to reassure to the world why PlayStation®3 is the most powerful system on the market. Ken Kutaragi's incredible foresight and commitment to the 10 year product lifecycle has truly shown the long term effects and how great father time has been to PlayStation®3.

The Last of Us has already garnered the most attention of all of the upcoming titles at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. Combine this with the (un)expected surprises that Sony has in store, and it's quite easy to understand why all eyes are on Sony this E3.

Naughty Dog has done it once again. They have given us a title(brand new IP Dark Sniper might add) that will go down the ranks of the greatest PlayStation exclusives ever made in it's 18 year history.

"It all looked lovely and managed to be gentle and brutal at the same time."

Love it.

Sorry Uncharted 3. You've been dethroned. Naughty Dog have done it again.

By the sounds of it, the survival element is going to be INSANE based on the "balance of power" system. Each enemy is genuinely fighting for their life rather than poking out for behind cover now and again and just shooting at you. That is one thing that would make it special. The tension in such terrible situations is another. The story, character development and feeling for the characters, another. The sparse and selective use of music and sounds. The graphics, well... we all know about that.

Well, I am jealous.

Joystiq mentioned about Joel only having four bullets as well and having rush and brutally beat a guy to death.

"This girl is calling the enemy "f*** face" and throwing a brick at him. Thanks, teenage girl!"

Nothing I haven't seen on the local council estates.

zeddy  +   1144d ago
i like it so far, it seems as thought the game might be a bit longer than an average uncharted game, probably about 15 hours.
DaReapa  +   1144d ago
"This is a third-person game, but not one that presents the characters as overpowering heroes. They're not expert fighters, nor even are they at Nathan Drake's level."

Wow. This game has just become that much more intriguing. Seems like they're adding a hint of a realism factor for challenge. Nniiice!
Nac  +   1144d ago
I'm looking forward to this, I really am. Probably my most anticipated experience to hit consoles for the next year and a half. Having said that I guess I am in the minoirty that prefers UC3 to UC2. I am curious to see how much of UC2 makes it in versus more UC3 esque elements. To be honest, I am excited about what both ND are doing(probably doing.)
Drainage  +   1144d ago
it looks amazing- So a linear 7 hour game....confirmed. thanks for the heads up. Bump this in 6 months
Tapioca Cold  +   1144d ago
Why is everyone fraking out over this. Talk about hype train. I didn't see any gameplay. Did you?
pwnmaster3000  +   1144d ago
Because everyone gets the right to be hyped. Its a new exclusive and nd never disappoint.
why you such a mood killer
MasterCornholio  +   1144d ago
Nope we all saw one thing.


They are this industry's best developers so it's normal that whenever footage gets shown from them an insane amount of hype builds up.

But anyways you should know by now that anything NaughtyDog makes is bloody good.

Jealous? Buy a PS3.

We haven't seen gameplay but several media sources have such as GameInformer, Kotaku, Destructoid and IGN and they were all hugely impressed.

And it's Naughty Dog game, so we know what to expect. Like was said above, people have the right to be hyped. The game's gonna be another amazing experience from Sony's top developer and with it being a new IP I don't see why you would want to discourage excitement.

I have said already and i'll say it again! It crazy to think in 2012 or any year (i'm guilty myself) why ppl still hollar "my console is the best" when u should have both. Halo 4 for xb360 is going to be SWEET and The Last Of Us for ps3 is gong to be EPIC. u are a FOOL to still hate on a console in 2012. u prefer different games(Killzone, uncharted, halo, gears, cod)? well that's cool! but to say the game wouldbe better on my system without FACTS is just plain DUMB! just get all 3 console and a PC and be a GAMER..... psn: cedaridge / xbl: cedar4Thunder

I'm curious. When Uncharted came along it definitely put Lara Croft Tomb Raider in her place. I wonder if this will do the same for the Resident Evil series/zombie genre as a whole.
jjb1981  +   1143d ago
I'm glad someone finally made a real survival game.
