The Last of Us Part II – June 19, 2020

567 posts in this topic

nothing the alt left do is for anyones benefit but their own popularity contest. druckman talks about how he loves women, yet fails to mention how he TRAMPLED all over Amy Hennig to get his woke shit in there instead. you're all hypocrits, when a game is made it's down to the devs to decide what they want to do, but when a sequel is made they have a fucking obligation to not shit on the source material, an obligation to the people that PAID THEIR WAGES.

 

I hope this shit fails.

So you are just going to keep playing all of Dontnod games and still whine about the Alt Left boogie man

.

dontnod games aren't so woke as to consistantly push the same virtue signalled narrative down your necks. it's genuine diversity, not woke diversity. there is a difference, and i can appreciate a story about gay characters as much as the next guy. what I can't stand is the hypocrisy of the alt left, they don't care about anyone it's just a push for popularity nothing more, foot in the door gatekeep the industry, thats all. it's the agenda and the deceit i have a problem with and i've every right to be pissed about it. it's not enough to make a story about characters we know and love, they have to butcher the story to fit a identity politics driven narrative.

yeah it's cool, it's great i love it. i also like how Id gave EVERYONE a way to express themselves within their game. it brought people together. I don't see that happening with Tlou 2.

it used to be a game made for everyone

 

The first game was never made for "everyone", whether from an age and/or general demographic standpoint. Some developers have actually designed games that can appeal to as much people as possible (since "everyone" is legitimately impossible) intentionally and from the onset, but Naughty Dog isn't one of them when they made the first (and second) The Last of Us. Naughty Dog have made it clear and stated multiple times that they create the games they want to make (they're prideful on that and it's one of their motto), not what Sony Interactive Entertainment (except, allegedly, Uncharted 4 as according to Neil he was asked to make U4 while working on TLOUPII) or players want. The game has "diversity" with sexual orientation beyond the common one (heterosexual), which only ends up being one additional type (bisexual or gay), but it doesn't mean the game itself is made for everyone. It's just a game that more people can enjoy because it includes—not centers on—more than just one type of sexual orientation.

Look I'm not going to kick the dead horse that is The Last of Us Part 2 leaks like everyone else is. But I am not going to judge this game by this controversy, because like everyone and everything recently, Naughty Dogs and Sony are being gravely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. They delayed the game to make sure that it has the best chance of success and sells well by retail stores and distributors. Did it paid off? well no and probably should have focus more on digital distribution, but that doesn't matter now, now its just damage control. Me personality I have not seen any of the leaks as I don't want any spoilers, but I will still buy this game because I still support Naughty dogs all the game designers that have put so much effort in making the game, especially in these difficult time.. 

 

 

It is rather ironic thou that a Video Game about a deadly epidemic is being destroyed by a real deadly epidemic. I bet Resident Evil 3 RM and DOOM Eternal are glad they came out sooner.

Fun Fact "You people" can't make your own entertainment. 

 

Idk, seems to me like we're already doing so just fine, buddy. The irony here being that for years, whenever LGBT or feminist issues were brought up in terms of gaming, people would scream, "just make your own games, then!" And now we have. Now most games are "our games". And it doesn't feel that good, does it?

To be honest I just flat out gave up trying to argue with people over the internet. I can't have a conversation even if non of my opinions are shared by the other party but ever since I tried to talk to said peeps, this started to feel like an extremly rare condition. Continually so.

 

We as a species seem to be too dumb to connect without bashing our heads in.

 

Fixed it for you.

 

This is essentially why I left Facebook and Twitter. Reddit may be next on my chopping block.

 

This is what happens when society mostly communicates via social media. I barely talk to anybody in person, and I mean that literally. We hold each other to a like or dislike, we cling to our opinions as if they were sacred words uttered in the Bible at church.

 

Our generation never learned to communicate well outside of the internet. I have to wonder if all these accusations and mud flinging at Neil would still happen if social media wasn't as prevalent as it is today. The way he is handling people is a good example of what you should not do, yet the braindead masses continue to egg him on. Enough is enough.

 

In a way I respect Sean Murray for hiding himself away from the pitchfork mob on social media when his product (No Man's Sky) was greatly criticized because a lot of promised content was left out. Fast forward to now, the game has gone through substantial changes. I played a little bit of it myself and I will agree that it's a much better game than it was when it released in 2016. Yet people just couldn't let go and bitched at Sean until he was forced to stay out of Twitter for a while.

 

Developers have done much this past decade to have me lose a lot of respect for them. But I think much of blame should be thrown at the publishers. In the old days, developers not only developed video games, they were seen as leaders and people to help guide others (game testers, artists, etc) into making a project. Look at id Software. John Carmack and John Romero were essentially the creative geniuses and designers of that company. They made a game (DOOM) that revolutionized the gaming industry, from a couple of guys that were passionate about their work.

 

Nowadays stuff like Assassins Creed Valhalla is basically worked on by at least a couple thousand people. Designers and gaming developers have some say on the project, but they're no longer the heads of the projects. Publishers dictate a lot of what goes on behind the scenes. Budgets are exponentially larger and those are going to see another substantial increase once the PlayStation 5 rolls around. It's no longer about the passion or the creative direction. It's about milking an already successful formula to make money. That's all Ubisoft gives a shit about.

 

Should this crying and bitching affect The Last of Us Part II sales, then at least I can say people voted with their wallets.

 

It's a fucking video game, it was meant for entertainment. Yet people continue to shell money out for EA, Activision and Ubisoft without asking a single fucking question. Those same people turn right around and bitch straight at Neil Druckmann until he's crying in a little corner in a fetal position.

 

Sad, just fucking sad.

Leading up to launch, we’re releasing a brand new series of videos breaking down key aspects of the game. Each video will feature interviews with members of our team as we discuss the design, technology, and ideas that have shaped the development of our game over the last six years. 

 

We’re kicking things off by taking a closer look at the story in The Last of Us Part II, including some of the core themes we’re exploring, a glimpse into Ellie and Joel’s life in Jackson, and how we’re broadening the world and cast of characters. Don’t worry, we’re keeping all episodes spoiler-free and there will be so much more for you to dig into on June 19th! Check it out:

 

"From here on out, we’ll be releasing new videos every week for the next three weeks. Here’s what to expect and when":

"An inside the story video. This ought to be interesting and touch a bit on another layer of the story (the game might have), right?" No. The information shared here is much of the same of what's been said before. And again, this isn't an interesting story at all. For a game structured around the cycle of violence (as Neil has stated many times now), why couldn't Naughty Dog incorporate a karma or morality system, instead of making yet aaanother heavily scripted linear-character(not story)-driven game with the same singular layout that every player will experience. A cycle of violence story is at its full potential under a plot-driven story. The formulaic and safe design of their games has gotten stale. 😐

 

But still—can't wait! (Such a beautiful cover that emphasizes the exhilarating experience people will have with the game.)

Buy The Last of Us Part II PS4 - GameLoot

Memorable quotes from our beloved protagonist, during the excellent story of an assured masterpiece of a game and sequel:

"I'm gonna find, and i'm going to kill, every last one of them."
"You can't stop this."

"I have to finish it."

 

Commonly advertised quotes.

Did they really need to slap "The Last of Us Part II" on everything? I get the console itself, but the controller and external hard drive are pretty ugly-looking with that text. They would look way better without it. Also, it seems a bit weird to release a limited edition console this close to the end of the generation, but I've never been one to care for these themed consoles anyway.

Huh, now that Sony realized TLOU 2 won't be a hit as much as 1st game, they release that gorgeous looking console. Well, A for an effort.
I can understand those who want that game to be ruined, not everyone enjoys SJW propagandas. I am not saying, l hope it will be shit but if it turn out to be shit, l'll be happy. Keep your ideas to yourself. This is entertainment. I want to entertain myself while l am playing not to expose your pov on things.

Having a console skin simply does not have the same prestige anymore after that console skin for Fallout76, and the fact that they lazily printed the name of the game over everything, controller included, without any creativity really does not help either. Scratching a former main characters tattoo into it might look alright but its not really a great effort to stand out from normal consoles.

 

I am still conflicted whether I want the game to fail spectacularly or not. I don't doubt it will sell reasonably well even with all the bad publicity, theres enough sheep who avoid any of the spoilers and rely on blind trust, and even more casuals who do not care enough to look into it in any way and just buy it, so the damage will probably be more long term if the game sucks. Part of me that loved the first game even wants it to still be good, but the other part really wishes Naughty Dog to suffer a devastating blow to their reputation and finances after all the shit they have done recently. Never even mind bullshit propaganda, defiling of a great license, lazy writing or blatant disrespect to many fans, the whole censoring and striking youtube channels down is much more despicable, and what they did with the trailer after the leaks pretty much borders on false marketing.

Lmao you do you but don't call the rest of us who are avoiding spoilers sheep. Just cuz u don't want to take risks in your gaming doesn't automatically make the rest of us idiots. Its beyond trust here, I simply want to experience the game as intended by the devs and I don't mind spending the 60 to do so regardless if I like it or not.

You are a minority then. Most people do not buy games they know are risky, not full price at least, spending 60€ for a game you might really not like is wasted money for most people. These people buy the game because they expect it to be great, they base that on nothing but "the first game was great" and "its Naughty Dog", while ignoring that so many people really didn't like what they were seeing with the leaks. People can spend their money however they want, but they are sheep to me, and you are obviously someone who does not put any value on his money, which is ok as well, its just not my approach and I doubt too many people are into that.

I don't disagree with anything you are really saying other than if said person had such concerns, they should just wait for reviews from a multitude of sources on day 1. If the leaks are objectively bad like you and lots of others claim it to be then they can make their purchasing decisions after looking at reviews. I just don't trust any reviews other than myself at this point and I know my personal tastes quite well so I would prefer experiencing anything myself. In fact the times I have "wasted" money on games are all from believing reviews that called certain games excellent. Anyways my friend who got spoiled and is a huge tlou fan was extremely disappointed but is still going to be playing it regardless to see if the execution would change his mind.

I agree, they should wait for reviews, but they won't, they disregard all the people who were unhappy with the leaks and buy it day 1 anyway, possibly having a bad experience after paying full price, THEN they will start complaining, which is why I label them as sheep because they do not really think, they just do. Not trusting any review is fine, the number of credible sources for reviews is rather low nowadays, even less of them will share your tastes in games, I have bought a few games myself over the years because I trusted shill reviews, but I also bought games that had a questionable reputation and found out why.

I for one am more hyped for the reactions to the game than the game itself at this point, because it is either a monumental shitstorm or a very positive reaction if they managed to make it work somehow, there seems to be next to no chance for anything in between. The trench war among the games community is almost guaranteed because quite a few people already made up their mind about the game being great or shit, regardless of how the game will actually be after release, and regardless whether they even have seen any of the leaks or not.
