The Last of Us - New Naughty Dog Game (PS3)

Quote:

Abandoned cities reclaimed by nature. A population decimated by a modern plague. Survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on.

Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US.

Media Player



Naughty Dog does zombie survival.

This looks very promising, hopefully they stress the survival part and its just not a zombie meat grinder ,though I trust naughty dog one of the best studios in the business.

are those graphics the same as what the game will be? I'm not really up with how graphics engines work. but fuck that looks cool. and as OP chippie mentioned, would be great to see it based more on survival than just busting zombie heads all game. not that there is anything wrong with that though.

Looks good, any word on the gameplay? I'm kind of imagining Uncharted type stuff.

you know what would make this game one of the best ever? (assuming it's already going to be awesome since ND are making it)

no zombies, ghosts or any kind of undead really, no over the top mutants. Just normal worldly kind of stuff. I'm actually sick to death of all that crap being in every fucking game & would LOVE if someone made something closer to normal.

shit like you go poking your nose in a dark crumbling building, and instead of a zombie jumping out at you HOLY FUCK IT'S A HUNGRY JAGUAR TEARING MY FACE OFF!!!

^ I read of game spots on Jimmy Fallon semi-regularly.

Ten points for scripted demos. Pretty sure that is exactly the the same playout as E3.

They showed the exact same scenario but played out differently to press backstage at E3.

I got a PS3 for their main series so far, Uncharted.
Then you should also get Heavy Rain.

Seriously, it's worth getting a PS3 just for those 4 games alone, let alone the new ones.

RDR, GT5 and others are just the cherries on top.
Oh and you can get one right now for like $220 from Kmart, cheap as chips!

Uncharted 2 and 3 set a very high bar for Indiana jones style action.

Very much worth it. The 3d in #3 is tops too.

I don't know how they fucked up Uncharted 3 so bad and made it a bad third person shooter with poor shooting mechanics. The enemies spawning behind you is bad design too.

not to mention the story was pretty weaksauce. The game was made to try and capitalise on the success of the previous two, not because they had more significant story to tell.

^^^ yep and yep! however, uncharted 3 shows off some pretty amazing real time physics and the new 3D thing, so not all is lost.

this probably isn't new for this game or anything, but I like how at 1:30 when he blasts the dude, his face is all bloodied from the precursing scuffle.

also, where the hell are all the zombies? this is looking more like I am alive than resident evil. maybe that's the point. maybe there are no zombies.

dear god that looks beautiful.

I'd be happy if none of it was playable, and I just had to sit back and watch the whole thing.

Quote:

I’ve finally played a chapter from Naughty Dog‘s eagerly awaited post-pandemic survival tale, and the first thing I want to say is this: The Last of Us is not a shooter. Well, not exactly.
Though Joel packs a pistol, you’ll count yourself lucky to be holding more than 10 bullets at any one time. Most times you’ll want to avoid fights by sneaking and hiding. In other, more desperate times you’ll pull the trigger with a feeling of great reluctance — all the while praying that you don’t miss.
The ultra-tight ammo supply imbues the game with a primal, high-stakes tension that brings uncertainty to every decision you make. One thing’s for sure: this is one mess you won’t be able to shoot your way out of.
As I guided Joel’s group around the dilapidated fringes of post-pandemic Boston, I saw constant reminders of Naughty Dog‘s legendary attention to detail. Step under a trickle of water and Joel will raise his hand to keep his head dry; knock an enemy near a wall and Joel will pin him there to deliver a staggering punch.
The environments also bristle with detail. Peer through a derelict car’s filthy window and you’ll see an interior modelled down to the steering wheel and gearshift knob. Shine a flashlight in a dark room and you’ll project your companions’ shadows softly and realistically against the wall and floor. Peek around a corner and you might spy a mouldering poster for “Fever Dream,” one of several fictional movie references dotted throughout the world.

With Tess and Ellie in tow, I quietly entered a sagging skyscraper, my exploration accompanied by the ominous groans of tortured steel and a series of unsettling chirps. That’s when I spotted my first Clicker, a late-stage infected human with obscene fungal growths sprouting from its eye sockets.
The Clicker is one of the deadliest enemies you’ll face, but it’s functionally blind, relying on a form of echolocation to navigate and hunt its prey. I hurled a glass bottle to distract the monster, then quietly guided Ellie and Tess further into the building, scooping up ammo and supplies along the way.
You’ll quickly learn that crafting is a necessity, not an optional sidequest. As you collect spare parts in order to craft gear and weapons, you’ll face tough choices on where to allocate scarce resources. Use a rag now to make a much-needed medkit, or save it for a molotov cocktail – just in case?
You can also combine blades and bindings with improvised weapons (pipes, two-by-fours) to craft a powerful anti-crowd weapon. Or you can opt to make a short-range shiv that can instantly and silently dispatch one enemy.
Whichever you choose, the game’s crafting interface provides a wealth of information in a lightweight and accessible UI. Despite the range of options I was able to find and craft anything I needed quickly and efficiently.

Based on the chapter I played, Naughty Dog doesn’t seem to be leaning on jump scares, fake-outs, or cheap tricks to gin up fear. Instead, The Last of Us develops a deeper, more oppressive dread by surrounding you with palpable decay and loneliness, turning off the lights and bombarding you with amygdalae-melting audio effects.
Creeping through the filth-streaked corridors scrounging for scissors and tape didn’t make me feel like an all-powerful supersoldier, only a desperate survivor fighting to draw another breath. That bleakness permeates and propels the gameplay – no matter how bad it gets, you’re always worried that it’s about to get much, much worse.
Visually, the game is a knockout. The intensely detailed interior nooks and crannies contrast vividly with the massive scale of the outdoor scenes, such as the vine-choked skyscrapers of an abandoned Boston. The control scheme felt natural and intuitive, and Ellie and Tess felt less like advanced NPCs with great AI and more like companions on a dark, desolate journey.
