From CAG:

Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us is free on Amazon http://ow.ly/tIV8a

It's a long documentary, one and a half hour, but it's free, just in case I added to my queue, the rental will be available to me until March 19.

"Bought" the HD version too. Can't wait to watch this. Easily one of my favorite games from last gen.

I picked up the DLC yesterday and started playing it today. Maybe it just starts off slow but I'm not particularly impressed thus far. Though hopefully it'll pick up soon.
Spoiler:
I just got passed the part when Riley turns on the power to the mall.
I love the main game and was perfectly fine with its slow pace but for some reason the DLC feels very dull. But, I'm going to assume that I'm still early in it and that's why.

Did anyone find the hidden twitter accounts in the mall stores? It's incredible to think that Naughty Dog even thought of that.

No! Can you give us the details in spoilers, for the ones that have completed the game.

Spoiler:
Many of the stores in the mall have their Twitter handles on the walls of their spaces. If you goto those twitter feeds you can get each respective stores takes on the outbreak in real time compared to when the infection began. For example, things like: "we're shutting down as of 9/31. The infrastructure of the nation appears to be gone." And then there are no tweets after 9/31. It's little stuff but impressive that the Naughty Dog community managers pulled it off.

re: The Last of Us (PS3 and PS4)

hello, i'm new to ps3 and just purchased Last of us and i'm experiencing the autosave glitch. Has there been an official fix for this? i've done searches and of course since this game is old now all of the search results were old. And they only said to restart the game. I've done that and i've experienced it more then once. it glitched at the begining before the pick up truck crashed and now it's glitching when i'm riding the horse with Tommy. I've tried disabling the internet and still no go. There has to be something i'm missing since no one has complained about this glitch recently.

I am surprised you are still seeing it. Apparently it was never a problem with the game, it was the Naughty Dog servers. All indications were that they fixed it pretty quick.

If you are seeing it now, I am not sure what to tell you except to make sure all the patches have been downloaded. Maybe email Naughty Dog direct.

Have you downloaded the latest patch for it? It was one of the first things fixed on the game.

I'm glad the DLC definitely picks up afterwards.
Spoiler:
I like that there are finally simultaneous encounters between humans and infected.
The story isn't bad but I must say it's not as engaging as I would have hoped. It's a tad predictable
Spoiler:
and I don't mean Riley's fate
and mostly feels like marking time. I did however love
Spoiler:
Skeleseer, the "origin" of the joke book, the arcade game, and the super soaker "fight".
Those little moments make the DLC for me more than the actual story told.

I finally got around to finishing the DLC today. Although it started out real slow and remained predictable throughout, I felt it ended real strong. Basically, it turned out to be the best episode I've ever watched of The Walking Dead. Maybe they should get Neil Druckmann to write for that series.

On a side note, did one of the

I replayed the level and got it to work. Dunno what happened the first time.

Maybe I haven't played long enough (couple hours), but aside from a great opening sequence, I don't see what all the fuss is about. I find it rather tedious and repetitive.

There are some nice moments towards the end. But I sorta agree - although I'm not one who's engaged by story & characters in a videogame.

So we may see a sequel...or we may not. Thanks for the clarification ND!

But seriously: there will be a sequel.

Yeah, the gameplay is repetitive. If you don't like the theme: survivalist, apocalyptic, zombie, etc. you may even find the game boring. Oh and the AI is really bad too.

But the story and characters are one of the best ever in a videogame. This is one of my favorite games the past generation, because I really like the theme, and I was OK with the gameplay being that way.

its almost as if the bad guys had NO BRAINS at all!

seriously though, what difficulty did you play at? the harder the setting the "smarter" the enemies got. The harder settings kept the same number of bad guys, they increased their intelligence and gave fewer supplies.

I played in Normal.

My complain was more about Ellie, or any companion, being able to walk in front of any zombie without issue.
