The Last of Us Part 2

Recommended Posts

Naughty Dog are better than playing to the torture porn crowd. They already proved in the first game that they could do challenging and hard-hitting without resorting to gratuitous for the sake of it. Hoping that misjudged trailer they released early on bears little resemblance to the final product.

By contrast, I say bring that shit on. I want hard-hitting, challenging content from this franchise.

 

Challenging, yes, but tiresomely gratuitous violence in a misguided attempt to suggest maturity, no.

I have to agree with this although tales about Ellie being on revenge mode doesn't give me much hope. I really hoped there wouldn't be a sequel with the same characters or any continuation with the story, as everything was perfect and complete first time around.

There is no evidence to suggest that would be the case based upon the previous game and Naughty Dog’s form. But sporadic bursts of intense violence and unpleasant, graphic combat?

 

Gimme.

I hope so. I thought the initial trailer, with the arm breaking and the hammers, not to mention the hammy dialogue, was eye-rollingly generic. The throat slitting in the second trailer wasn't as bad, but it still felt a bit unecessary and there for shock value more than anything else.

 

As @Majora says, hopefully the devs will get it right and this will be as good as the first game.

Special Edition for me.

 

Will match my God of War & Days Gone ones and looks to be similar to the Ellie edition on PS3.

Trailer looks fine but very familiar. I was as gutted as anyone when I reached the end of the first game, but I’m still not convinced it needed a sequel. Really hope I’m proven wrong, of course.

Thinking about it, are we due to see the PS5 next year? Because if that's the case I might be able to channel my inner resistance and hold fire on buying another PS4 until that happens...

It's a ruse. Joel catches up with her on an early mission, Joel fucks up, Joel dies. Cue revenge arc. Naughty Dog are above fridging a love interest. Right? :unsure:

Looks startlingly pretty, but Druckman proudly saying it’s their longest game is a big red flag to me not a positive. Bleak, melancholic misery can outstay its welcome. The first one was too long, as has been every other ND game. IMHO of course.
