I’m incredibly excited for The Last Of Us. I love developer videos for games, because you don’t quite understand how much goes into a game until you see them. In this latest video, which you can check out past the break, the team goes in depth on extensive lighting, dead foliage, and much more. The Last Of Us comes out June 14th exclusively for the Playstation 3.
What’s better than a red band trailer? An extended red band trailer, obviously, duh. The Last Of Us is definitely looking like one of those rare games that gives non PS3 gamers a reason to buy one. In this trailer we get an awesome and gory look at what it takes to survive in the post apocalyptic world The Last Of Us will thrust us into. Check it out past the break, and don’t forget about the games release this June exclusively on the Playstation 3.
A lot of people don’t realize that Best Buy has a “Gamer’s Club“. It’s basically the answer to Game Stop’s Power Up Rewards program, only in my opinion Gamer’s Club is way better. Basically you pay $15.00 for a year subscription. The $15.00 pays for itself in no time flat, especially if you’re an avid gamer. If you head past the break I’ve included a list of everything you get with the subscription. But here’s the best part. For a bunch of upcoming games right now, if you pre-order and pick up the games within 7 days of their release, you get a 20 dollar Best Buy Reward Zone certificate. I myself just pre-ordered 4 games on the list, and so long as I get them within a week of their releases I’m making a total of $80.00 on the deal. Head past the break for the list of games, and more Gamer’s Club info.
Rumors have been making their way around the vast and knowledgeable Internet about a possibly delay for the highly anticipated post-apocalyptic survival game The Last of Us for over a week. Mercifully, Neil Druckmann, lead game designer at Naughty Dog took to the PlayStation Blog to offer some confirmation on the rumors. “As a team we pride ourselves on setting a very high quality bar for every aspect of our games — gameplay, story, art, design, technology and more,” Druckmann said. “We want to make sure The Last of Us raises that bar even further — or ourselves, and most importantly, our fans.” Now PlayStation 3 owners can look forward to kicking some fungal zombie ass on June 14th.
A couple days ago Resident Evil: Return to Raccoon City made its trailer debut, and while I’m obviously a huge fan of the series, it didn’t look terribly impressive. Now, a trailer for What Remains, another fan-made web series, has made its debut. Now this is more like it. The quality is certainly there, and they even (briefly) show one of the game’s creepy fungal zombies, so that only leaves the acting, which we don’t see much of. It’s being made by Manifest Film, and you can get your first look at it after the jump. Trust me, it’s worth checking out.
It’s about time we got a real good look at the enemies we would be facing in The Last Of Us. Not the humans, but the creatures. Nothing too out there but still freaky non the less. Head past the break for a whole bunch of screen shots showing off the enemies. The Last Of Us comes out May 7th exclusively on the Playstation 3.
Sony recently took to their official blog to unveil the two very special editions of Naughty Dog’s upcoming post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive The Last of Us, and after looking at them both I’m a little torn. Coming exclusively to North America are the $79.99 Survival Edition and a $149.99 Post-Pandemic Edition, which is targeted at the “true collector.” Full details after the break.
I’ve updated the original post with a bunch of new games as well as tweaked a few dates that have changed since last month and added which platform(s) each game will be available on. Enjoy!
It’s 2013! The busy holiday season may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean your social lives and bank accounts are in the clear. There’s still plenty of games to go around, including DmC later this month, and Dead Space 3, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and Crysis 3 (among others) that are waiting to jump into our open arms in February. I don’t even want to get into March… phew. Get your calendars ready and click that adorable little Read More link to check them out!
Friday night was a big night for gamers. Spike hosted its annual Video Game Awards show, and despite the awkward back-patting and hilariously awful pre-show, as a whole, the event was mildly entertaining. Most of this can be put on Samuel L. Jackson, who hosted the event for the fourth time in the event’s ten year run. Arguably the biggest reason gamers should be interested in the VGAs is the plethora of world premieres, and while this really wasn’t the best — that can be blamed on the fact that this console generation is ending soon, so there aren’t any new IPs to announced), there were still plenty of amazing games that were announced. So what were the best and worst surprises of this year’s VGAs? Find out after the break.
I’m honestly having trouble believing The Last of Us isn’t a next-gen title. It just looks so good. Along with a ton of other highly anticipated games, Uncharted developer Naughty Dog’s next project had a pretty incredible showing at the Spike VGAs last night. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s a post-apocalyptic tale of survival that stars Joel and not-Ellen Page, who run into fungus zombies and awful people as they make their way across the country. Have I mentioned it’s gorgeous? It is. Check out some brand new gameplay courtesy of the Spike VGAs, after the break.
Just a little taste into a trailer we have to wait until December 10th to see. The Last Of Us is coming out next year exclusively for the Playstation 3.
In conjunction with the upcoming videogame “The Last of Us”, Dark Horse Comics has teamed with Naughty Dog to bring a fou-issue miniseries titled “The Last of Us: American Dreams”. The series will be written by lead videogame writer Neil Druckmann, and Faith Erin Hicks. More below!
October 13, NEW YORK, NY—The most anticipated video game of 2013, The Last of Us, comes to print with a comic series and an art book from Dark Horse Comics and Naughty Dog!
The Last of Us: American Dreams will be a four-issue series by The Last of Us lead writer Neil Druckmann, with rising star Faith Erin Hicks (Zombies Calling, Friends with Boys, The Adventures of Superhero Girl) as cowriter and artist.
Ellie, the heroine of The Last of Us, has grown up in a postpandemic world, shuttled between military orphanages in one of the last remaining quarantine zones and resigned to the fact that when she’s old enough, she’ll be channeled into the army or left to fend for herself—until she meets an older girl determined to find a third way out. American Dreams explores Ellie’s backstory and her first steps on the road that led her to her companion Joel.
The first issue of The Last of Us: American Dreams will appear in the spring of 2013.
The Art of The Last of Us, a deluxe hardcover exploring the characters, the infected humans, and the intricately realized world of the game, will launch in conjunction with the release of the game.
Hopefully you already got to see the gameplay from E3 for The Last Of Us, because it’s awesome. Well if you missed it, or you just want a bigger taste, below you can watch the extended version of the gameplay. It will keep your heart racing the whole time while Elle and Joel get themselves repeatedly in and out of trouble. Brace yourself, the video is just under 16 minutes long. This is definitely up near the top of my most anticipated games list. 2013 on the Playstation 3.
We aren’t being battered down by The Last Of Us screenshots, and trailers and I’m completely fine with that. Too often we get waaayyy too much about a game it almost seems as if when it comes out we wont be able to be surprised at all. Well straight from Gamescom this year we have an all new trailer and some new screen shots from The Last Of Us, which will be exclusively hitting the Playstation 3 hopefully early next year. Head past the break for the goods.
If you don’t already know about this game then shame on you. For shame! The Last Of Us stars Ellie and Joel, 2 survivors of a plaque that has wiped out a majority of humanity. You fight to survive as you make your way across what’s left of the United States. The gameplay video you can see past the break is unreal. It’s so, smooth, so interactive, so detailed I could cry. This game goes straight to the top of my list. There are also some new screens past the break. The Last Of Us is a Playstation 3 exclusive from Naughty Dog, the developers of the Uncharted series.
A few days ago Adam gave you yet another awesome LOOK at some footage from The Last Of Us. Well if you head past the break you can check out a few new screenshots from the game as well. Naughty Dog is looking at a late 2012, early 2013 release for the game exclusively for the Playstation 3.
Uncharted developer Naughty Dog’s next game is The Last of Us, and it looks incredible. It follows Ellie and Joel, two survivors trying to make it across a post-apocalyptic wasteland that was the United States. Originally, it looked like an action horror game with its apocalyptic setting and Cordyceps zombies, but while those elements remain, they aren’t the focus. This new trailer, which you can watch after the jump, focuses on another horror that inhabits the world–humans.
Naughty Dog’s next game is the post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive The Last of Us. It follows Ellie and Joel, two people who are merely trying to survive in a world where humanity has been almost completely wiped out by a mutated form of the Cordyceps fungus. This fungus has adapted to infect humans, creating a freaky fungified creature that’s sort of like the mutant offspring of a mushroom and Left 4 Dead’s infected.
Developer Naughty Dog is adamant that this is not a horror game, but there’s no denying its strong horror influences, especially when it comes to these sexy fungus zombies. Head past the break for an uncomfortably close look at these things. READ MORE
Uncharted developer Naughty Dog’s next project is an exciting one. It promises an epic tale of survival in a world where humanity’s been decimated by a mutated form of the Cordyceps fungus. As if the Romero and rage zombies weren’t enough already, now we have mushroom zombies, and I despise mushrooms. They’re all slimy and they sit on your plate like they just know.
The PS3 exclusive survival adventure game The Last of Us still doesn’t have a solid release date other than its nebulous 2012/2013 window, but I’m totally willing to wait for Naughty Dog to work their magic on this one. Head past the break for a fresh batch of screenshots from the latest issue of Game Informer. READ MORE
First off, fuck you for calling your game The Last of Us. Do you have any idea how difficult that makes it for me to come up with awesome titles for these news blurbs, when I have to include that awkward name? While the game’s stunning trailer debut consisted entirely of in-game footage, it’s difficult trying to scour every pixel when everything is moving. The good thing about screenshots is they’re like me — unmoving and here for your viewing pleasure.
The Last of Us is being developed by Naughty Dog, the studio behind one of the most graphically amazing series of this generation. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this is a beautiful game. Head past the break for a few more screenshots of this intriguing PS3 exclusive! READ MORE
I’m still patiently waiting to see some gameplay from The Last Of Us. In the mean time, we can all enjoy so motion capture awesomeness, and then see the results past the break. You can also learn a bit about your main voice actors.
It’s no secret the world is ending this year. There are just too many ways for it all to come to a crashing halt, whether it’s by alien invasion, zombie infection, nuclear fallout, or any number of other possibilities — the point is, tell your loved ones how you feel because we’re all going to die. While I’m spreading some truth sauce on you, you should know there’s a pretty good chance a majority of us will die slowly and very painfully. You could be eaten alive by the hungry undead, die of radiation sickness, or you could find yourself in an alien’s sex dungeon where it probes you daily until it grows tired of you and blasts you with its Raygun.
Once January 2013 rolls around there probably won’t be many of us left. Our once glorious civilization, founded on the idea that you can call someone a douchenozzle and not get reprimanded because everything you say online is anonymous. However, there is still some hope. Sure, most of us will meet with gruesome deaths, but there are some here that will survive. How long you survive is entirely up to how intelligent, physically fit, and resourceful you are. If you’d like to increase your chances of making it in the inevitable apocalypse, here are ten games coming out this year that can help you out. READ MORE
