NerdBite: E3, the event that has also been dubbed as “Christmas For Gamers”, has finally arrived and we are, how should we put this… pumped!
-The Last of Us Part II -Spider Man -Detriot: Become Human -Sucker Punch's new game
Anything to do with LoU2 leaves me a happy man, and that's without the other potential titles as bonuses.
I'm excited to see ( in no particular order ) - Detroit: Become Human. - Spider-Man PS4. - Sucker Punch's new game. - Days Gone. - Dreams. - FF7 Remake. - God of War PS4. - The Last of Us Part 2. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. - Red Dead Redemption 2 ( in the form of a gameplay trailer at least. I hope for a few surprises as well =) Greatness Awaits!
Really doubt we see anything from The Last of Us 2 or FF VII. Dying to see Sucker Punch's game. Just hope it isn't a VR only game. Release dates for the rest and yeah, a few new game announcements including a couple of exclusives. Easy to please, aren't I? 😎
Lol. I'd be very disappointed to see Sucker Punch's new game to be a VR only game. Now you've somewhat dampened my excitement. Thanks a lot😞 Jk. Still excited.
LOL....don't listen to me, dude. I overthink this stuff!
Oh my God if it's a vr only game I'll be so pissed off lol
The Getaway 3
The number one thing I want is a western release announcement for Dragon Quest.
I know the chances are slim, but I hope to see Bloodborne 2 Horizon Zero Dawn 2 would also be amazing, but maybe next E3
Hopefully Sony won't insult us by showing YouTubers react to something that already released *cough* Bethesda *cough*
lol....did Bethesda do that?
Yep they showed a video of youtubers reacting to the elder scrolls online morrowind expansion trailer which released 5 days before their conference lol it was so stupid.
Shenmue 1/2 HD Timesplitters collection Tony Hawks collection the best of the best from 1-4
Spider-Man and God of War are going to be the 2 biggest blowouts. I'm excited to get release dates for GoW and Detroit, hopefully a beta rollout for Dreams, as well as seeing Sucker Punch's new IP in action, as well as the goodness from Japan devs. I'm not ready.
Has HBO's The Last of Us show changed fans' thoughts on Naughty Dog's sequel, The Last of Us Part II? Maybe.
"Has HBO's The Last of Us show changed fans' thoughts on Naughty Dog's sequel" Nope, my thoughts have always been the same. It was a masterpiece when it launched, and it has remained that way ever since. The only real flaw of this game, was the pacing. After hitting Abby's section, it kind of dragged a bit early on. I still maintain that this game was better than the first in just about every way other than pacing.
I disagree. Thought part 2's story was trash.
I didn't hate the story but I wasn't a fan of how it was told, the switch half way through from Ellie to Abby was a massive momentum killer for me. It's one of those games where it's great to reflect upon and think about the themes but in that moment it's almost like starting over again and that's just not satisfying.
Great fn game. Great story!
Agreed, one of the best games ever made
How many story beats per gameplay hour(s) does it take to have a well paced story? I hated it when I had to switch to Ellie in Part I, but then I started to like Ellie. The same thing happened to me when I had to switch from Ellie to Abby.
I also loved Part 2's story. Of course it was not popular with a whole lot of fans, but I enjoyed it as it shook up our expectations. Not many games look at the other side of a story in such a visceral way. The original game made every one fall in love with Joel and Ellie so it was easy to see why many hated the events in the sequel. But I thought it added more to the game world as it showed how 'The Last of Us' refers to more than our favorite dynamic duo.
LMAO WUT? The game tells the story better than the show imo
Yeah like the show literally rushes the entire first game in only 9 episodes…well actually 7 episodes as two of them are flashbacks. The fallback to this is that they changed so much to get to the end as quick as they can: Tess for example. She’s fantastic in the games but the show does her no justice at all. The change to her death is just plain awful, there’s no emotion to it, even Joel in the show literally just runs off but in the games he hesitates until she screams to him to go. Then you have the silly tendril kiss compared to her taking on a small group of FEDRA soldiers knowing she’s going to be shot down but she does it to take as many of them down to let Joel get away.
The show was alright. But the acting was terrible. The choice of actors were also terrible, as they don't really look close to their counter parts. Part 2 over stayed it welcome. With the big shock value and then following a group of teens seeking revenge for 25 hours, it got a tad boring towards the end. Ellie was a good character in part 1, but in part 2, she wasn't inspiring at all along with her group of friends. It was the game world for me that made part 2 good. But I was so disheartened that they took away one of the better characters early on into the game, this was one of the sole reasons I disliked part 2.
I thought the show was much worse than the first game, to the point where it made me think "how much of this story did Bruce Straley think of?" It must be the only explanation because whoever wrote TLOU 2 and the TV show (similar people, including Neil Druckmann) did not know how to properly build on/ adapt the premise of the first game. Either Neil Druckmann, be he a writer or a consultant on the scripts, did not understand the first game, or he totally opposed what made it biting and relevant on purpose.
