Well this looks like horseshit!
*takes of sarcastic dress, pulls on sincere dungarees*
A 14 carot gold pile of horseshit. What’s not to like about this trailer for Naughty Dog’s horror survival game The Last Of Us which looks like a hybrid blend of I Am Legend and 28 Days Later?
The plot rattles around like so:
Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who’s braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
The reason we have high hopes for this game is that developers Naughty Dog are proven leaders in the industry what with their Uncharted, Crash Bandicoot and Jak franchises firmly under their belt. We’ve always maintained that the first company to develop an open world sand box style game, in the same vein as GTA, but with an apocalyptic theme will have a runaway success on their hands.
The Last Of Us will be available exclusively for the PS3 towards the end of 2012.
