But surely the context suggested it was just around the corner what with the reviews posted an' all?

I had no idea. I figured it was coming out soon, but then you posted that and I was like, oh fuck. I mean, shit, I've been waiting for The Last Guardian for five fucking years (or more) :?

Just played the first three hours of The Last of Us. Just wow! The gameplay, the suspense, the terror, the atmosphere, the soundtrack, the best opening scene I've come across in a computer game in a while, the everything, just, wow!

If you have a PS3 you've no reason not to get it. If you don't have a PS3 - Beg, borrow or steal.

That was the best game I've played in some time. I don't think I ever played a game before which actually made me care about the characters in it. The scripting and acting were great. If I had emotions I may even of shed a tear once or twice.
Sad now that it's over. I guess I'll have to play again on hard.

:hehe:

Seriously, only 17 hrs of gameplay? Is there any exploration or side quests or anything? Any replay value?

I just got it today, by the way. Traded in my Ni No Kuni :( Release date it tomorrow, so I'll pick it up then. Game Stop is within walking distance of my apartment :smoke:

17 hours is plenty for a game of this type. As for replay value, it has an excellent multiplayer.


Here's the intro for anyone with no intention of buying it. Prolly the best intro on any game I've come across. Obviously don't watch if you are going to be buying it, it is better experienced through play than watched.

The revenues claimed by The Last of Us are actually very impressive in a wider context. We understand that the PlayStation title grossed more in its first two days than new box office hit Man of Steel.



Estimates from the movie trade press say that film made over £3m at the box office in the UK on Friday and Saturday. We're not allowed to share the numbers, but The Last of Us comfortably made more money over that same time period, although Man of Steel's audience was about three times bigger than the game's.

Deserved it IMO.
