The Last of Us
I’m of the opinion that The Last of Us was such a perfect game -- such a perfect experience -- that it didn’t warrant a downloadable content episode. Where we had landed with Joel and Ellie at the end of the narrative felt open-ended and ambiguous, sure, but there was also a sense of finality; we’ve seen these two remarkable people to the end of our road with them. So when I heard that Naughty Dog was releasing a single-player, story-based DLC episode, I raised my eyebrow both skeptically and in confusion. Now, after having played through the handful of hours in The Last of Us: Left Behind, I can say that maybe I was wrong in fearing the worst.
It's no secret that The Last of Us is one of the greatest games of the last generation. But do you know about the work that went into crafting such a masterpiece?
We'll finally understand why Ellie carries a burden like survivor's guilt in The Last of Us downloadable content episode, Left Behind, which now has a launch trailer.
As the winners for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards were announced, we were glad to hear that the story of Joel and Ellie won gaming's big prize.
The Fireflies have come through with the announcement of The Last of Us' t-shirt design contest winners. You better break out the Cordyceps anti-fungal cream, because we also have a new content trailer for The Last of Us: Left Behind downloadable content to go with those beautiful, new shirts.
Naughty Dog's The Last of Us was one of the most memorable games of the past year, and we've all been waiting patiently for the single piece of story-based DLC to arrive. While the developer has been teasing and hyping up Left Behind for a month or so, Naughty Dog still hasn't mentioned when the content would arrived. Thankfully, someone at the Sony online store took all the guesswork out of the equation.
New footage from the upcoming narrative downloadable content for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us has arrived, and now we want to play our Best Game of 2013 all over again. Thanks.
Don't worry about watching the footage, as it takes place before The Last of Us proper, and doesn't spoil anything from the original game.
It was a tight race, but this year the fan's have chosen Naughty Dog as the Studio of the Year at Spike's and GameTrailers' VGX Awards.
