WOW sony i was not expecting this!

 

Basically from the trailer what i picked up is that

 

- The game looks amazing if its gameplay (as you expect from naughty dog)

- Everyone is infected like zombies but one of the zombie things looked like something different

- Set in a city which is deserted and everything is overgrown reminded me of I am Legend

- 2 Characters features one a young girl and one an older man

- Guns (pistol) & knife shown

I would love for the game to be a 2012 release :smileysad:

 

Ah well, at least I'll have Borderlands 2 to sustain me for a while!

 



I wouldn't hold your breath with Gearbox's usual fasion of delays :D

 

I see a lot of people said the same regarding Bioshock Infinite before that got delayed..

 

 

I bet there's more games to fall past Christmas yet :(


 

Very true! :smileylol:

 

My PS3 is crying out for some new games! :smileysurprised: As long as we get some nice demo's to try our hand at I'll be happy!

"The masked man turns out to be a new character named Bill. Bill knows Joel somehow and, as you can see in the cinematic, owes Joel a favor. What for? Well, we’re not talking about that yet but you’ll definitely be hearing more about Bill and what makes him tick in the months rolling up to launch. For starters, we also revealed that Bill is voiced by accomplished Hollywood actor, W. Earl Brown, who has appeared in numerous movies including There’s Something About Mary, Scream, Vanilla Sky, and the upcoming movie, The Lone Ranger. He also played Dan Dority in the acclaimed HBO series, Deadwood. There will be much more information to come." http://blog.eu.playstation.com/

The Last Of Us’ dynamic stealth & ‘live’ inventory management is risky say director

http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2012/07/19/the-last-of-us-dynamic-stealth-live-inventor...

 

I think this sounds great!

 

"The AI know about each other – they’re searching rooms and they split up but then they’re going to reform and one of them doesn’t show up, he’s going to start asking, ‘Where’d he go?’”

 

& also...

 

"“Our inventory system is living, meaning the game is still running,” he explains. “You’re not paused when you’re going into your inventory. So it’s just like you’ve pulled the backpack off of your back and you’re in there creating something live while the enemies are moving around the environment and coming to get you...."

That inventory idea sounds like the same thing in Resident Evil 5, i like 'live inventories' makes the game more tense

Im hoping it gets a 2012 release but if it takes abit longer than they had thought then im happy for it to be delayed, i dont want them to cut corners just to rush the game out, plus i have loads of games in my collection i havent played yet plus Assassin's Creed 3 so i wont be too bothered if it is delayed

Ellie’s Backstory To Be Revealed In The Last Of Us Prequel Comic

 

"What transpires, in a ruined world, that ends up pairing her off with Joel and leading to the events of the upcoming game?

 

The answers will be delivered in four-part comic series The Last of Us: American Dreams, IGN reports. The comic details Ellie's backstory, as a child raised in military orphanages in a quarantine zone."

 

"Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann explained that the comic is designed to appeal to any readers, not just those who have played the game. The story, and the characters in it, stand on their own. However, Druckmann elaborated, reading the comic will most assuredly add context for players who want more story. He also explained that writing the comic in-house, and keeping it in line with the canon and core story of The Last of Us through the game's development, allowed Naughty Dog to intertwine the two."

Asoon  as I heard they were doing a art book for last of us, I immediatly made the decision I was going to buy it when It becomes available for pre order. I'm a sucker for hardcover art books :D. The comic sounds good too, ill be getting that too whether its separately or if it comes with a collectors edition for the game

There is a lot more information for the Last of Us comic over at the PlayStation Blog. It looks fantastic, what do you all think to it?

 

http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2012/10/19/the-last-of-us-prequel-comes-to-comics-in-the-last-of-us-a...

 

 

The Last of Us: American Dreams is a four issue comic book series that peels back the layers on the early days of Ellie as it dives into her backstory. It will expose her personality and the motivations that drive her as it explores the first steps of the journey that leads to becoming the character we ultimately meet in the game. Naughty Dog Creative Director and Co-Writer on the series, Neil Druckmann, had this to say about the comic books:

 

“I wanted to see a story that can stand on its own, so if you’ve never played the game you’d still be able to read this comic and get an intriguing story with these characters but, at the same time, if you do read this comic book and you play the game, you should get greater depth, a greater understanding of these characters and the world and what’s going on with them.

 

“The other cool thing is that working on the comic book has helped me develop more of Ellie’s backstory. Because we haven’t finished the game yet, we’ve been able to weave some of those threads into the story of the game. So there are certain parts as you play the game, if you’ve read the comic book, you’ll understand what Ellie’s referring to, or have a deeper understanding of what made her make that decision.”

 

The series will be made by collaboration between Naughty Dog Creative Director Neil Druckmann, artist and writer Faith Erin Hicks, and colorist Christina Strain. Neil and Faith will be co-writers on the project and Faith will be doing the drawing while Christina handles the coloring duties. Faith recently posted up early concept art she did for Ellie:

Could be good... I really enjoyed the Uncharted 6 part series... even if I did have to import the Graphic Novel to get it...

 

I really like that sort of stuff that ties into games.... Heavy Rain, Alan Wake, Rage, Uncharted series... even the first Dead Space had good web material or print tie-ins...

The Last Of Us World Premiere Showing During VGAs

http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Last-Us-World-Premiere-Showing-During-VGAs-49204.html

 

"Other than a couple of videos and brief demo walkthroughs, little else has been revealed concerning the game following its official announcement. But, according to a statement made on Naughty Dog's Twitter, that's all about to change. To save you the click, the tweet reads: Check out the new GameInformer to meet a new character from #TheLastofUs. See the world premiere at VGAs on Dec. 7.

So, there you have it. You can read up on a brand new character in the upcoming issue of GameInformer and, come Dec. 7, it looks like something special is going to be announced during Spike TV's annual video game awards show. "

Looks great and in 2013-14 Sony might announce the new PlayStation home console, so ending this PS3 era this way will probably be cool with TLoU.
