re: The Last of Us: Part II (PS4, 5/29/2020)

Reposting my comments from the PS4 thread, but i'm looking forward to this even though I'm one of the few who seemed to not think that much of the first game. One of the best stories i've played in a video game, but I thought the gameplay was such a slog to get through in the middle. Looks like it will be awhile though.

The first one was pretty much perfect and didn't need a sequel. But if they have a good story to tell then bring it on!

I'm preordering this. The first one was so good so I'm also afraid that they can messed up the sequel.

So Joel is pretty obviously dead (but in Ellie's head) and this is a revenge tail??

Loved the characters and story of The Last of Us (PS3) but won't be buying a PS4 just for one game. I'm a bit disappointed I won't see the end of this saga...

I'm surprised after a few years you don't see anything else you want to play on the PS4.

A sequel to one of the best story driven games ever made. Now my most anticipated game followed closely by the GoW reboot.

The God of War game isn't a reboot. It's another sequel.

They are calling it a soft reboot with the new game play. Hence why it's not called GoW 4. But yes, story wise it takes place after GoW 3.

I know I need to finish the first. Like other games I got going only to be sidetracked when something else came out. I have no idea where I am in the story since I've avoided all help and walkthrus.

Time to erase that save and start again, sir.

I bought a PS3 to play the original, and I'll likely use the sequel as an excuse to buy a PS4.

re: The Last of Us: Part II (PS4, 5/29/2020)

I ordered the Collector's Edition this afternoon for $135 with GCU. The backpack is probably worth the extra $60/$48 with GCU, but I don't need it. Also it wasn't available at Best Buy to order (either that or it sold out immediately)

re: The Last of Us: Part II (PS4, 5/29/2020)

I never finished the first one and have made up my mind I'm going to start over from scratch and play thru that instead of getting more games. I already cancelled Ghost Recon: Breakpoint...doesn't feel like Wildlands II but may pick up The Outer Worlds. Looks like TLofU-II will be worth the wait.....

It sold out pretty fast (everywhere actually). I put in orders for all three versions at BB with GCU I figured I'll decide on which one I want as it gets closer.

EDIT: I just noticed that my preorder prices are a little fucked up. My collector's edition price w/ GCU is $127.99 (not $135.99) and my Ellie Edition is $199.99 (not $183.99 like it should be). I'm wonding how to get that fixed...

I'm very surprised Sony is releasing this ~6months before the PS5 drops. I thought this would be a release day game to showcase the PS5 for sure.

Why use it as a launch title for PS5 when the PS4 has an install base of 100+ million systems? On top of that, PS5 is backwards compatible, so even if someone is jumping in at that time they could still play it.

The original game did the same thing. Came out in June on PS3 and then the PS4 released a few months later in November.

They still have quarterly financial goals to hit.

I'm cautiously optimistic here. I didn't care for TLOU but will give it another shot before this launches, maybe it'll click.

There's a new, free theme that's available in the PSN store.

I wound up ordering the special edition. I have no need for statues or backpacks.

Anyway, I'm glad these release dates are being announced. I can use of my GCU before it expires in December.
