One thing I really loved was not that action itself, but how human the action and brutality was.

The best example is at the end, probably staged, but where that final enemy turns to look at you and yells, "Wait!" before you kill him.

I heard that you can actually not shoot, and just go separate ways.

Only reason they're not as popular was due to the PS3's smaller install base.

Still, with the next generation coming very soon, as interested as I am in The Last of Us, I wonder what their second team is doing for PS4 now that they're done with Uncharted 3.

They have a date now for the demo that comes with GoW

GameInformer

Quote
Those who buy God of War: Ascension next week will have access to a demo of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, but they'll have to wait until the demo goes live in late May.

A recent tweet from Naughty Dog made it sounds like the demo will be going wide, but that those who purchase God of War: Ascension will be able to access the demo early. How's that for cross promotion? You don't have to answer. We think it's pretty good.

Yeah, that makes me wish so much that I had a PS3. Damn Sony for making Naughty Dog publish only on their platform. I guess I'll just wait until the PS4 comes out and drives the PS3 prices down.

The gameplay is similar to Uncharted in viewpoint and controls, but instead of a lot of enemies coming at you in waves and firing guns like mad, it's a mix of sneaking and melee combat, with the small bouts of shooting with very limited ammo, and extreme deadliness.

Also there is a crafting system where you make various items to survive, like bandages to heal yourself and molotov cocktails.

Naughty Dog has completed development of its next game, The Last of Us.

Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra posted an image on Instagram showing as much earlier today.
Sony has confirmed The Last of Us release date of June 14 worldwide.


A playable The Last of Us demo included with God of War: Ascension will go live on May 31, ahead of The Last of Us release date of June 14.

Naughty Dog's community strategist, Arne Meyer, has previously said the campaign component of The Last of Us is around 12-16 hours in length.

Here's a bit of news, The Last of Us will be available on PSN download on release day. But that's not the interesting part.

You won't need to download the full game on PSN to start playing, you just download half, and the rest will stream in on to your hard drive using the Gaikai tech built into the game. Clearly they're trying to test the streaming tech before the PS4 comes out.

Only thing I don't like about the GT vid is that the girl sounds like she's in her 20's and clearly isn't.

Otherwise looks great. Visceral.

Is ammo an stuff as rare as it should be. I saw you only had 3 shells in the shotgun...but then I saw you basically had an armory in your backpack when you got to the work bench...

Also, in that one QTE when the guy grabbed you, it prompted you to hit square. Did square just break the hold or did it do everything. break the hold and then hit him with the board?

Niiice!

Yea, the language is certainly a little more 'salty' than I think some folks anticipated, but it is rated M.  The arsenal in the backpack thing doesn't help as much as you might think - without that one rare piece you can't make something good with it, and you can't upgrade stuff without the bench.  You can make basic stuff like nailbombs and medkits, but there is always a tradeoff.  It feels pretty balanced.

On the QTE, you hammer square till it breaks the hold then he 'reacts' in a contextual way.  If you are near something you might smash their face into it.  It works exactly like Uncharted in that way.

Eh, I can deal with that. The girl has been through a lot.

To get more than 1 weapon you have to craft a holster right? Also, the ammo for those other weapons should be pretty limited as well.

I really, really hope they fold a lot of stuff they have for Last of Us into Uncharted.

I also really like how the gore feels reasonably horrific, and is kind of just there and not glorified with geysers of blood and slow motion headshots.

Are there difficulty settings in the demo, what did you play at?

A very nice video with a great selection of character and combat moments.

  I *think* you can carry 1 rifle, 1 melee, 1 pistol, and 1 throwable.  To carry a second of those you have to craft a second holster.  1 melee can be a bat, a stick, a pipe, etc. and they are your best friend, as are the throwables.  The ammo is very limited and honestly it's not recommended a lot of the time as it attracts a LOT of attention.

Me too.  This game has come a long way from Uncharted.

  Agreed.  It's pretty horrible, but it's the new reality for the characters.  It makes sense in context and nobody feels great about it in the game. 

Quote

  Yea, three of them.  I always play stuff for review or preview at Normal or Medium as that's usually what's balanced for "everyone". 

I'm very much looking forward to this game.  Naughty Dog has a hit on their hands.

Launch on this one.   I'd stake my rep on it, even only spending 2 hours with it.  Naughty Dog has outdone themselves.   We've not seen multiplayer, but I don't even need that for this game.  The only thing that might sting is if they (uncharacteristically) made a very short game.

Would it be that uncharacteristic for the game to be short? I seem to recall Uncharted 3 being shorter than 10 or so hours long, right? And I don't recall Uncharted 2 wasn't much longer. I would consider both of them fairly short games.

According to the web, the average play time was around 11.5 hours for Uncharted 2. It went as low as 8.5 hours for people, probably rushing through, and as high as 13. That's pretty reasonable for a game of this quality and production value. I suspect you'll be doing more sneaking and scavenging in TLOU so this number could jump.

Yep- this.  The thing that I look at is the quality of those hours too.  I enjoyed every second of the Uncharted series.

Except for 3's horrible encounter design. Ugh. Thankfully, we know that designer wasn't working on TLOU because he was too busy messing up the encounters in Uncharted 3. slywink

Much like Uncharted, this is one of the games I'll break out to show the storytelling potential of games. I once brought Uncharted 2 out at a club game night back when most of them didn't have PS3s, and had almost the entire room enthralled as they watched someone play the intro segments to it.

I did some tradeins, and I'm getting this day one (Survior Edition or whatever) for about $25 in cash.  I'll probably play it for a few weeks and then sell it used for $40-50.  Unless it becomes 'rare as hell' in which case $$$. biggrin
