Playing some The Last of Us today. Survivor mode is tense. I'm not actually dying that much more than I did back in my first playthrough on Normal though. Practice is everything. It helps a lot that the checkpoints are so generous, and that allies give you health and ammo if you're low, and that the baddies have TERRIBLE eyesight. There were multiple parts I was scared of doing on Survivor where I only died once.

STOP GOING AFK BETWEEN ROUNDS, ARSEHOLES! Is that really asking too much? I understand not everyone is MLG, but I'm just asking for a little common courtesy. It's way uncool to fuck over your team because you got impatient and wanted to go make a sandwich or needed four pee breaks in fifteen minutes.

Finished playthrough 3, this time on Hard Plus mode. That Plus really makes a difference, I only died a third as often as usual. Got all the weapon/Joel upgrades. Although the crafting speed is the Joel upgrade I care the least about, I have to say it feels really cool to make stuff lightning quick. I might take on Survival, though I doubt I'll ever be ready for Grounded. Fewer checkpoints sounds scary.

Silent Gamer Can you change the difficulty mid-game?

Dr Eggnog Maybe. I'd put likelihood at above 50 percent. Haven't tried it.

Sandy Vich Grounded mode is just mean. Several sections practically require incredibly cheap exploits.

Well, 40 percent through playthrough 3 and now I'm sick of it. Still, in one week I played over 30 hours of the game and watched a full LP. It took over my life for a little bit. I'm moving it up to my 37th favorite game and giving it an 8.5. It's the most survival horror-y game I've played since Silent Hill Origins in 2007.

Three hours through a new game plus and I'm already halfway through the Bill section. Just blasting through. Once I got my fully upgraded hunting rifle there was no stopping me. Having the full health bar with med kits healing extra is a boost as well. And with triple use shivs I hardly have to be careful around clickers. And I'm skipping lots of scenes. Those three hours slid right on by. Game's still addictive. Might bump my score up to an 8.5. We'll see.

Finished my 2nd playthrough, on Hard this time. Died almost as many times as my first playthrough on Normal. The enemies themselves didn't seem that much harder, but there were way fewer supplies. Winter was a bit of a bitch, but mostly it wasn't that bad. Took a little longer because I explored more and did more stealth, over 50 choke outs. Might do a New Game Plus now and upgrade to full. I know where a couple more things are because of the Best Friends LP, and more about why you'd want to chuck a brick/bottle at someone's face (I've never done it on purpose).

The Hunting Rifle, El Diablo, and Flamethrower are all so good. I'm not sure what my favorite weapon is.

Husky Wing Pfft, I think I played most of the game with the pistol. Things like flamethrowers just weren't made for me, I got that deadly accuracy

Thirteen hours in and still in Fall. Am I actually taking LONGER to beat it the second time? I'm definitely finding more collectibles. I have almost as many collectibles as I got in my entire last playthrough and there's still Winter and Spring left. I kinda sped through some areas the first time because I wanted to have it beaten and because I generally had enough supplies. That's the main difference between Normal and Hard, Normal floods you with supplies.

There was a huge gap between when I started the game the first game and when I got deep into it, and they take so long to go from SUMMER to FALL that when they flashed FALL I kinda laughed cause I'd forgotten that was a thing.

I don't care about most of the Joel collectibles. Increased max health is okay, it would be better if health kits operated on a percentage of your health. Listen mode distance is the good one. Crafting and healing speed I could care less about. Weapon sway's not as important as in a laser sight game like RE4. I thought the defensive shiv thing on clickers would be great until I realized it doesn't kill them. Often I'd rather die than waste a shiv since the game is so generous with checkpoints. That's one reason why the game is so addictive. There's never that moment of "Oh, I have to do ALL this again." I played it for a bunch of hours both Tuesday and Thursday.

Silent Gamer Glad to see someone else who enjoys it for it's gameplay. I feel like too many people bashed the "game" itself while praising the world-building and characters.

Dr Eggnog Pffft world building. It's just zombies. That's the pleab reason to like it. Bringing survival horror into the 2010s is the cool reason to like The Last of Us.

I'm not sure if anyone's heard of this. Might be something of a hidden gem.

Bullshit aside, just beat it, and I really liked it, more than I was expecting. I just ranked it as my 51st favorite game and I wouldn't be shocked to see it go higher after a replay that'll go smoother since I won't do so much wandering around to figure out how to proceed.

Although there's cover shooting and stealth, it feels like a survival horror game at heart, more than Resident Evil 4 or some of the later Silent Hills. It's not just constant action, there's actually a lot of down time, which is refreshing, even if they go a touch overboard with long stretches of walking around. There's a nice variety of ways to take out or get past the enemies, and which types you're facing can change your strategy. I spent too much of the game looking around for my next objective, but the game nicely informs where to go next after a while, eliminating the need for walkthroughs. Even with that though, I was impressed with the amount of content. One doesn't expect a linear shooter which looks this good to take sixteen hours, which is how long it was for me, though I might not have minded if they'd shaved off a couple hours, it's a bit slow. And there are lots of hidden items rewarding exploration, some of which are helpful for improving yourself and your arsenal, which makes just looking around feel like progression. The game felt kind of easy on Normal mode, because though I died 60 times, checkpoints are very generous. I'm looking forward to playing on the higher difficulties.

The graphics are impressively realistic and full of detail. I have to stop and admire the work put in. Some areas are very large even if they don't have much in the way of items, just so that people wandering around won't find themselves unimpressed. I tend to prefer games that have their own art style and don't try to look like real life, but this one does it well.

The story isn't my style. Post apocalyptic, zombie-ish infection type stories are overpopulated right now. It works though because of the creative and twisted ending, the light banter throughout (it's surprising how toned down and humble this game can feel), and Ellie's swearing (kids in games don't swear much, do they?).

Score: 8.5 (Great!)

Dr Eggnog "It's not the same any once you know it." I've seen a few things that are like that for me. Bolt, Spirited Away, and Finding Nemo come to mind. But it's not something I can predict. There are some stories where I can get into the emotions of it a bunch of times. But like I said, I mainly liked the story in TLoU for the ending and the banter.

Dr Eggnog I wouldn't call The Last of Us an interactive story game because you don't make any story choices. Interactive story makes me think of visual novels like Hotel Dusk and 999, or choose your own adventure books.

Richard Pale Apparently the PS4 version's on sale now $10 in the US PS store (down from $20) but the UK Last of Us sale is only for DLC so it's £40 (more than twice what it is in the US even when it's not on sale) :/
