While most of The Last of Us: Part II is being closely guarded behind an iron curtain of mystery, the game's writer revealed that she will appear in the game.
Man, the teases just keep coming. How do you prevent yourself from getting super over hyped about your most anticipated game? What should I play to pass the time? I've already played the first one about 10 times already. *sigh
Why are you getting downvotes? I’m beyond hyped too man.
Because he's getting hyped over the fact that the writer will appear in the game... I mean it's great but hardly anything worth getting hyped about.
SWITCH Archange is hyped about the game not the writer who is going to be in the game.. Read his comment again. and Yes i am hyped to for this game and cant wait to play this on my Pro and PS 5..
Is her acting ability up to par with the other actors? If she isn't then she shouldn't be in the game.
True, we will see. From what I heard, she was the writer of Westworld and I hear a good thing about it.
Writer of Westworld season 1, 2 or both? Because the writing took a pretty big downward spiral in season 2.
@Sono421 Well, Season 2 of Westworld is still solid. So yes, put the writer in the game can be cheesy/tacky, but we will see. Edit : Yes, I can see that. But she did other works like Banshee before Westworld really. Do I think Season 1 is better than Season 2 ? Yes, it better than Season 2, but her reputation speak itself and I do hope Season 3 will do better. Again, we will see how she do in The Last of Us Part 2.
It's "Solid" but no where near as good as the first, the writing went from god tier to.... "barely acceptable" you'd have to be deluded not to realize how much it took a turn for the worst. This is coming from someone who absolutely loves the show...
So you bringing up her history made me curious... and uh, I have literally no idea why you did that. Her history besides west world consists of chick flicks.... Heck, on her IMBD her two most known for things are Westworld and Last of us 2 which isn't even out yet, and on Westworld she worked with 3 other writers. Instead of convincing me how good of a writer she is, you've now strengthened my worries that TlouP2 will mainly be focused on her lesbian relationship.... thanks pal.
@Sono421 Look, I agree everything what you said. And i’m sorry. Look, whatever The Last of Us Part 2 going to be great game or big disappointing. We will see how it pans out. I understand your concern and I won’t argue with that, but i’m not the guy who judge on people way too quickly.
How does her writing ability have any correlation or indication of her acting ability?
@Sono421 She wrote 7 episodes in season 1 only.
Agreed, not to mention writers putting themselves in their work is just tacky/cheesy. We don't need this.
You condemning it already is tacky too. Maybe wait to see the results before you claim " we don't need this". I know it's a radical concept in this day and age.
I don't think anyone had a problem with Stan Lee.
-Forced message behind the scenes about Diversity by the Director. -Female lead that is a lesbian. -Writer is self-inserted into media. And thus the Vapid Trinity is complete.
Wow, you guys are damn insecure. Skip it then...
Lez be honest this will only make the game better. We can all feel much more virtuous every time we play the game.
Lmao so true, and @FunAndGun the only one seeming insecure is you dude, chill. I don't understand why people support forced identity politics? It doesn't add anything to games, so why support it?
Who says its forced politics?
I'm certainly worried he's going hit us over the head with his beliefs but he's created great game stories so far so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt with this. Lesbian lead isn't a problem. I do find self insertion a bit weird but meh, not the worst thing in the world.
Now that Straley isn't working with him I am a bit worried. Anyone that publicly supports Anita Sarkeesian and says that she is an inspiration will never have my trust. TLoU2 may end up being as good or better than the original but I am not as excited for it as I was when I finished the 1st one.
Anyone who thinks Anita Sarkeesian is an inspiration is either horribly misguided or someone you should be very wary of.
No one cares. Go make a blog about it, and you guys cry about it there. There are people that would rather talk about the game than try to start drama just because it's the only thing negative you can find. Sick of hearing about politics in games, and so called gamers always trying to start drama over dumb shit that doesn't matter.
The heavy handed idpol and proselytizing of faux liberal agenda via entertainment industry, and some of the most endeared franchises is lame to say the least. I miss Amy Hennig. It's obvious, clear, and ironic, that she was obviously ousted by the zio-leach.
Lol maybe you should wait for the game to come out. The first one was amazing.
Yup, I think i'm gonna skip this one.
This writer needs to make EXTRA sure their virtue signaling is properly credited. If they don’t put their face in the game, how are all the bigots going to know how much worse they are in contrast???
Ugly ill girls...
Loved the first game. This games story is driven by a political agenda rather than just being a good story. This one is an easy pass.
I wish they'd stop using that vile thumbnail.
Oh look they changed it. Nice.
Can I shoot the writer in the game?
Nope and you dont get to decide how she chooses to write her story. Just back up and look at what you are expressing.
I expressed nothing, nor did I comment on her writing abilities, I asked a simple question. My opinion on the writings or situations in the story are my opinions and mine alone and NO ONE can tell me I'm right or wrong with what I believe to be right or wrong rather it pleases or upsets them.
