Review: The Last of Us Remastered

tlou-remastered

The Last of Us Remastered (PS4) Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment America Genre(s): Survival, Third Person Shooter Released: July 29, 2014 ESRB Rating: M – Mature The Last of Us was an undeniable hit when it landed a year ago on PS3, both with PS3 owners and critics. The game received perfect scores galore (including from me) and over 200 Game of the Year awards (again, including mine). For me, it was one of the swan songs for the PS3. It was no surprise then earlier this year when The Last of Us Remastered was announced for PS4. After all, the system has been selling very well, and a lot of PS4 owners never owned a PS3. With the updated and more powerful hardware, a remastered or definitive version of 2013's Game of the Year just made a lot of sense. The … [Read more...]

Grounded Bundle DLC Will Make The Last of Us A Whole Lot Harder

The Last of Us

The Last of Us is an amazing game that won my Game of the Year award for 2013 along countless other sites. I beat it several times (including Survival and Survival+) en-route to 100% finishing the single player. I also got 100% on the much shorter Left Behind DLC story. Many found The Last of Us to be a challenge on normal. Hard lived up to its name. Survival mode though took away any sort of possible advantage or hand holding (Listen Mode) by making already scarce supplies even more scarce. Now the final DLC for the game is almost here, and while it's primarily geared towards the awesome multiplayer, it does contain a new difficulty mode for the single player campaign. It's called Grounded Mode, and this is how Naughty Dog describes it: Grounded Mode will be the hardest challenge you’ll … [Read more...]

When midnight rolls around, Left Behind will be available on the PlayStation Store to download and play.

The DLC is free if you bought the $20 season pass, other wise Left Behind will be available for $14.99. Below is the official launch trailer for the game. Do note that The Last of Us saw a patch today that you'll need to download before you can play Left Behind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5jt7Twyhxc Smith's Sentiment: I incorrectly posted on Tuesday that Left Behind would be available when … [Read more...]

Naughty Dog Announces Uncharted for PS4

During tonight's live PS4 All Access event, Naughty Dog announced Uncharted for the PS4 in the form of a teaser trailer. Check it out above. There was no number attached, nor a subtitle. At this point, it still isn't known if its a Nathan Drake adventure or if the series is going in a new direction similar to Second Son. Nevertheless, it's Naughty Dog and it's Uncharted, and that's all I need to know. What do you think of the teaser? … [Read more...]

The Last of Us Patch 1.03 Available Now, Brings Fixes and A New Multiplayer Mode

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Cv_ThIkXdw I started back playing The Last of Us today and mopped up the remaining single player trophies that I needed (basically the collections). I then hopped onto multiplayer for a minute and saw something called "Interrogation" underneath the the Supply Raid and Survivors game modes. Not knowing what it was, I visited the Naughty Dog website where low and behold they dropped a new patch today (which I did have to download when starting the game up but had no idea what it contained). Turns out, patch 1.03 went live today and includes a number of gameplay fixes and a brand new multiplayer mode as shown in the video above. I haven't had a chance to check the mode out yet (I'll blog impressions about the new mode in a future post), but it does look … [Read more...]

Review: The Last of Us

The Last of Us

The Last of Us (PlayStation 3) Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Genre(s): Action-Adventure, Survival Horror Released: June 14, 2013 Price: $59.99 ESRB Rating: M – Mature I’ve gone back and forth trying to decide how I wanted to handle this review. The Last of Us released this past Friday, and of course, it was a hugely anticipated PS3 exclusive. Reviews from the larger Metacritic outlets went up weeks ago, and so by now people who may have been on the fence before will have seen dozens and dozens of all positive reviews and have likely purchased the game. So with that said, I’m going to do something different with this review; I’m going to talk spoilers. Don’t run off yet if you haven’t finished the game though. First, I’m going to do a quick non-spoiler … [Read more...]

The Last of Us Digital Pre-order & Season Pass Available Now on PSN

Naughty Dog's latest sure be awesome game doesn't release until June 14th, but you can now pre-order a digital copy of the game through the PlayStation store. Unlike other PS3 games to be offered digitally on the store though, The Last of Us will be available to download at midnight on June 14th. Even better, it's using a special downloader that will allow you to start playing the game once the download reaches the half way point. Yes, Sony really can't wait for you to start playing the game on the 14th so they've sprinkled in some of that PS4 magic into the game downloaded. Also available now on the PS Store is the season pass for the game, which costs $19.99 and features three pieces of DLC content and some day one bonuses (which I don't know why you would want to use … [Read more...]

New “The Last of Us” Gameplay Video Is Incredible

Oh my! Check out this new gameplay footage from Naughty Dog's upcoming title "The Last of Us" that is looking like it's going to be another instant classic for the talented Sony studio. Naughty Dog has never disappointed, ever. This game looks absolutely amazing and I can't wait to devote many hours to it and getting the Platinum for it. We don't have to wait much longer for it, we're only a month away at this point, but I seriously wish I had this game right now and was playing it instead of writing this post. The Last of Us releases on June 14th exclusively on PlayStation 3. Pre-order the game now from Amazon and get the Sights and Sound Pack plus a $10 A/V credit. … [Read more...]

Heads Up: Massive Spoilers for ‘The Last of Us’ Leaked

If you're a PlayStation gamer, you're probably like me and are super excited for Naughty Dog's upcoming new IP "The Last of Us." The highly anticipated PS3 exclusive from the studio that brought us the three amazing Uncharted games hits stores on June 14th, but thanks to someone digging through files on the God of War: Ascension disc, massive spoilers for the campaign of The Last of Us have leaked online... including how the game ends and the fates of characters throughout. We of course will not be posting the spoilers here, out of respect for Naughty Dog but more so because I don't want to see the spoilers myself, so consider this a warning when reading anything about The Last of Us over the next month and a half. I'd stay from anything TLOU related on message boards (except ours) and … [Read more...]
