While most of The Last of Us: Part II is being closely guarded behind an iron curtain of mystery a new tease came by way of Animator Jonathan Cooper.
Can't wait for this game!
Me too. I hope I live long enough to play this/finish it, & hear feedback from other gamers as well, to see how the experience was for them.
Better get into a plastic bubble.
Watch the achievement be "Most realistic lesbian kiss ever in a videogame" lol but seriously Neil Druckmann loves to praise Anita Sarkeesian, but it would be so hilarious if she attacked this game for "appealing to the male fantasy" with the lesbian kiss, I would actually love it, that would be true poetic justice.
It's going to set several new standards, especially in terms of animation and characters. It's basically going to be CGI quality with those realtime cutscenes lol.
I am ashamed to say I only finished tLoU just last week for the first time, it was the remaster. I bought it in 2015 but just never got around to finishing it. Phenomenal game, the storytelling and gameplay is just unbelievable, I can see why it got GotY over Gta V, a game that has sold over 100 Million copies. Part 2 is honestly giving me Game of the Generation vibes, which I know is very early of me to say but seeing the gameplay videos of it 😓
Ugh, no teases my anticipation cant take it
This is clearly gonna be a technical achievement.
Yes, most definitely. Just reading what he posted makes me anxious, but oh so excited to see what’s been achieved.
I'm curious to what got him excited! Really looking forward to this game.
Can't even imagine seeing as how they're already head and shoulders above anyone that isn't R* when it comes to animation. I always knew they had some very clever tech/programing/rigging going on but after seeing their tech conferences about everything they put into U4 the past few years i'm convinced they got the best in the business for their animation team
Yeah, them folks at Naughty Dog don’t play around when it comes to animation. I do believe they have the best in the business for their animation team as well. Game after game they just raise the bar for animations across the board. Love their passion.
Guy is really big on accurate physics, especially pertaining to kinetics, which is the movement of an object, but often refers to that in relation to the human body and it's interaction with other things. Guy is also really into the dynamics of cut scenes. So, maybe something along those lines. Potentially, playable cut scenes, which would play into the cinematic foundations that ND has nowadays....although, TLOU wasn't really driven by set pieces like Uncharted. However, this sounds more like a singular process thing. Since I know no journalist will do it, maybe I'll pour through his website or youtube posts to see if he ever mentions anything. :)
I wish he gave a bit more detail. He did say @gameplayAnim, so I'm thinking it's something interactive and simulation oriented ? I think that's more likely because canned scenes are not as impressive.
fck the achievement. Give me a release date!
Sometime in the future...good enough for ya?
This really needs to come out this year. I don't think I could wait until next year
Damn it just give us a release date the anticipation is killing me
As always Sony Playstation and their talented game studios pushing the boundaries of what a video game can be, yes I'm saying this because of one sole tweet and is ok cause they have earn the trust of every gamer and they always deliver on its promise!, sadly I can't say the same of other gaming console companys and that's because mostly because of their arrogance!! Sorry if someones get offended by my last sentence I'm not intending that, I'm just want that someday every console maker do the right thing, but if somebody doesn't tell what's the reality of things that in the end will never happen.
He's not saying it's something they'd like to do either. He's saying it's something they got working, although he was referencing someone else who did it in the game, so it's not like he's just making an empty promise. He said in a later tweet, he'd follow up and say what he was so excited about when they showed it publicly, or released the game, so at least we'll see what got this guy so excited, because if someone of his caliber is excited, then you know it has to be something new and innovative.
Sony, please stop making good games. I hate having something to look forward to in this painful existence.
This hype will deliver.
This will be game of the generation mark my words. Even looking at TLOU1 its excells anything on any other platform including PC. top tier developers will always win out with gamers over GPU manufacturers. a ps4 costs around £229 with a game theres never been a better time to jump in
"Even looking at TLOU1 its excells anything on any other platform including PC LMAO what. No. Atleast choose Uncharted 4 and you'd be right in some aspects.
If the E3 2018 trailer is anything to go by that isn't really surprising.
This game is going to be 2019 GOTY. Mark my words.
Not really a hard call. It's like saying mark my words the next Zelda will recieve 9s and 10s lol.
I'd like some super realistic eyeballs that actually emote and have nuance, that would be crazy. And weighty, grounded footsteps would be nice
Hopefully random fall and knockback physics that look realistic, but can have almost unlimited different animations.
This is the fist time that I ask for no teases, previews or the disclosure of further gameplay. I want this thing to impact my senses like the first game. I'm dead sure that such developer is more than capable to pull a perfect run. I expect no less because we will have much more than we could ever expect.
The technical aspects are indeed something ND should be proud of but the emotional attachment I felt for Joel and Elle in the first game was something I'd never experienced in a video game before...or since when I think about it!
I rather play resident evil 2 instead.
Something to do with motion matching perhaps? The game look like it may have just that seeing like how everything looks like one continous motion capture rather than bits of animations stitched together. Its just insanely natural and seamless looking.
