The Last of Us

Recommended Posts

Not sure if there is a thread about this already (had a search, nothing came up).

 

Anyway, this will be out sometime in June and is seriously looking amazing. Not to mention sounding even better (apparently the sound in this game plays a massive part).

 

Yes yes, it's a zombie game. But from what I can gather, this isn't your typical run n gun shooter. Looks to be more towards exploring and rewards actually planning your attacks/movements. So instead of running into a room of infected guns blazing, it would pay to sneak around and pick them off etc. Some are saying it's similar to Uncharted style of play.

 

As a big The Walking Dead fan, it seems to be along those sort of lines.

 

Have a look for yourselves:

 

 

This clip is game play and takes a while to get going, but is worth the look.

 

 

And here is a preview from IGN:

It's been a long time in post-development (with the original trailer being released in 2011). I had forgotten about it, or thought it was released with little success.

 

It looks great, being a true survival game. It might be one of those games I buy on launch day if it lives up to the hype.

It just looks very in depth. I like having lots to explore :lol: Not to mention the amount of gore that seems to be in it as well :D

Yep I've been keeping an ear out for more news on this. That tv spot trailer was good. Definitely sounds better than I thought it was going to be when those first trailers were released.

I'm really looking forward to this. I remember when I put my pre-order on it they were saying Dec 2012 release so its been held up a fair bit but glad to have a release date on it now.

I only stumbled across it the other day, but as soon as I looked into it I was sold.

 

I think release is looking at around mid June.

I just can't wait to get my 'kid mode' on and go on an adventure haha I had to play Ocarina of Time again to get that feeling I had of exploring a game when I was young. Too much CoD and FIFA can be a very bad thing!

Looks amazeballs. And with the style of play that I'm expecting the game to have, you will actually be able to sit back for a moment at take all of the scenery in. Instead of games like BF3, where yes it is beautiful in parts, but due to the fast pace of the game you aren't really able to stop and admire.

Yeah it's at $66 now I think. That surely has to be one of the cheapest prices around? I know JB have it for $89.

 

Just a pain waiting for it to come from ozgameshop.

Video Ezy have it for the cheapest price but their shipping times are awful.

http://www.videoezy.com.au/games/last-of-us-the-playstation-3/dp/570987#bc=42e3 $51.16

I don't recommend them unless you aren't in a rush to get it.

For anyone that has a copy of the game already, there is a bug with the autosave feature. Naughty Dog are aware of it and will release a patch soon.

 

http://zoknowsgaming...s-autosave-bug/

 

edit - ok now it's fixed.

 

If you haven't seen it already, we have we've been investigating and have discovered where the issue was -- the cause was from our servers for The Last of Us, which were capturing player statistics.

 

We've made a change to the servers. Quit any game in progress out to the XMB and restart the game. Existing saves are fine.

 

Single-player and multiplayer are both okay to play (since some of you were playing offline).

Whats Ozgameshop's shipping time like? I understand they are a UK company. If its over a week might just grab this game from JB or Big W.

 

 

 

Edit: Nevermind, brother is going to pick it up from Big W after work tomorrow.
