The Last Of Us.

Post by Daedalus1942 on Sun Jun 10, 2012 11:45 am

So, I'm sure people here have seen the trailers and stuff from E3 about the journey of Joe and Ellie, but I can't help but think to myself as I watch the footage and read the dev comments, "one big escort mission".

The developers keep insisting there's going to be this really deep father/daughter sort of bond between the two characters, but the fact that you play as only Joe worries me.
Add to this the inclusion of the "infected" and it seems to me it's just one great big escort mission in yet ANOTHER zombie where you scrounge for weapons.

Any thoughts, fellow leprachauns?

I don't know, it looks like she's able to hold her own ground. She helps out in fights, and when you stealth she's quiet. She might not be that annoying.

Also, a solid relationship between characters can make an escort mission enjoyable. Ico was just one big escort mission, and it was terrific

It looks interesting. I was hoping it would be like The Road in a sense or Roadside picnic (my fave sci-fi book evah!).
My main complaint is the idea of the infected. I hope they're not the main enemies.
I was hoping to see the ugliness of human beings in really tough times portrayed, the horiffic acts they'll comit just to save their own skin.

The tv series Jericho portrayed that whole idea fantastically and it's a fantastic show.
Time will tell whether The Last Of Us will be the experience I'm hoping for or not.
I really hope ammo isn't plentiful even if you know where to look. I've always wanted to play a game where you truly feel like you're scrounging for survival in combat.

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series came close to this idea, but ultimately you wound up with enough ammo to start a small army.

You hear about this idea for a really full-on survival game all the time, but I think the issue with it is that it's just a lot more boring than it sounds

They tried it with Dead Rising with the 3, 5 and 7 day challenges, and to succeed you just sat in a saferoom for hours on end. That's all I can see as the logical outcome of a realistic zombie survival game: dicking around holed up somewhere.
You kind of need that multiplayer aspect like in Day Z where people are going to be dicking each other over all the time in very dynamic ways, breaking into your little safehouse to loot from you. It doesn't really work so well in a story-driven game like The Last of Us, which is why I think it's probably going to be very linear.

I'd like to see that too. They sort of had it in Fallout, but I just shot them then.

I'd like to see that better. They sort of had it in Fallout, but I just shot them then.
Have you seen the TV show Jericho? It's fantastic, all out nuclear war has only just occurred, humans are fighting for survival and literaly tearing each apart to ensure their own extended lifespan.
No zombies, no supernatural stuff, just good ole disgusting human nature, radiation poisoning and realistic scenarios.
It's very accurate imo, of what would happen in a crisis of that proportion.

I just hope they can pull off having Ellie around all the time. Companions in games are for the most part annoying and become dead weight. I had some flashbacks to Resident Evil 4 because of the whole dragging a kid along with you dynamic, but it looks like she may actually be useful. Hopefully she doesn't get in the way.

Looks great, but I don't even have a PS3 so whatever Razz

I just hope that Ellie runs and hides if she's low on health, or she's invincible. If she isn't, this will be one incredibly annoying game for sure.
