Roughly 30 hours of gameplay. Be warned, the review has major spoilers for the first game if you haven't played or finished it yet and minor spoilers for the new one.

Wow, that's more than double the length of the first.

Yep. GTA V is #1 with 20 million sold, would have been higher if it wasn't a PS3/XB360 game a year prior.

#2 is Uncharted 4 with 16 million.

This seems ripe for a big number, especially now.

Gamespot has their Final Review Up...8 of 10...which didn't change from their earlier one with same score, same complaints (mostly about the gruesome violence and crafting) and once again though long and detail, not one word about audio and visual....Be Warned...this has a lot in it about the story and central characters. I read thru it and saw one glaring sentence I wish I had not....also all this time I thought the whole game was about Ellie...well.....https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/the.../1900-6417487/

I mean, your statement alone is an implied spoiler and the review you linked to clearly states "Spoilers"

How much hard-drive space does this thing take?

I truly canít remember the last time Amazon guaranteed release date delivery for a preorder, and it looks like thereíll be no exception for TLOU 2. Have a delivery date of next Tuesday.

Has anyone looked for/found a thorough yet brief synopsis for the first game? I need to refresh my memory about what happened in that one since I havenít thought about it since launch.

My Collector's Edition has shipped and will arrive tomorrow. Have cleared off space from my office shelf to add Ellie next to Aloy and Nathan Drake.

Decided to go Digital with this release and picked up the Pre-Order from the PSN store.

2.5 hours left to wait!

Good luck to those who got the game...I decided not to get it at this time...I started back on AC: Odyssey because I want to finish it before Ghost of Tsushima.....just not enough time for it and The Last of Us Pt2. Pretty sad to see though almost all the game sites are already out with every imaginable walk-thru and where's this & that guide....I avoided all with the Remastered and wouldn't touch a one with this one....hopefully still get it later on.

Played three hours. Pretty amazing so far. So many accessibility options for disabled.

Currently a few hours in.

I definitely missed this universe. Glad to be back.

I should have taken today off work. It being in the other room teasing me is even worse.

I'm in the same boat. So close, but yet so far...

My Amazon order came today after telling me it with be here Tuesday!! Maybe a couple of hours in and really enjoying it so far. So much to digest and already wondering were things might go with the new characters.

My CE delivery arrived while I am still at work. On my Ring app, I see the delivery guy accidentally drop the huge box and jump back suddenly, surprised at what he just did -
I hope it's okay. If not, I am certain I can show Best Buy exactly how it got damaged.

Here's an unboxing, finally. Looks to be a pretty spectacular CE.

I had a Tuesday date as well and tried to cancel today so I could buy digitally, but it was too late. They do claim itíll arrive tomorrow, which would be a lot better than Tuesday.

I don't think Gamespot likes this type of game...or just doesn't want to give TLoU a high score....they gave a 8 of 10 to the original one and The Remastered for PS4
What a weird misogynistic post. A videogame review is someone's personal opinion about the game so of course someone's personal feelings are going to be a part of it. I've read multiple major reviews complaining about the violence and saying they've doubled down on the "murder porn" aspect of the original. Not sure why you're singling out her review.

Because she gave an "8" to a game that almost every other reviewer gave a "10" to, even with the same misgivings?

Perfect ten scores are bullshit 99% of the time.

8 is still a fantastic score. It's whiny gamer Bros that seem to have a problem with it more than anything else. More reason to ignore them.
