It is a very intense moment/scene, at least it was for me. I felt like he was making the right decision to save her, but at the same time, the reprecussions of her living are hard to ignore.

Dropping into SST: I need to replay, but I'm about 95% sure there's an audio log you find in the hospital that says there were others before Ellie. Which I took as a way to let the player off the hook for doing what Joel did. If there were others, there still could be others out there. And Joel's actions didn't damn humanity.

But, after reading various threads, some folks didn't find that log, and basically say "welp! humanity is SCREWED NOW!!!!!!!" Which I don't agree with.


I will say that if there is a sequel (and signs are pointing that way), I hope it's set somewhere else entirely and doesn't reference any characters from the first game. Their story was excellent, but it reached a good ending, and I'd hate to have another game soil that memory.

Seems I recall, seeing reference to there being others in the movie, too. Oh, I had thought there was a sequel and it had already been announced, but I don't really keep up with console games.

My take was : he did it for the most part due to his daughter not having a chance to live her life. While Elie could never romantically love anyone (if I understand correctly it's transmittable via body fluids i.e. no kissing or sex) she would at least get to live her life. Secondly my take about the whole cure was, Joel was hoping there was a way to find the cure without killing her, i.e. another doctor more capable. I thought the sequel would be about the search for another doctor, in another part of the country...world.

I only killed the one directly in front of her, that I'm pretty sure (been awhile since I played) had a scalpel in his hand. Think there were two others who backed away and I left them.

It's an interesting article, but I didn't agree with his assessment, especially the end.

Same, I liked the article and even the offshoot link to 'The Last of Us: interview with Neil Druckmann and Ashley Johnson'. Figured he just got caught up in the moment of an intense game/scene.

First time I've done it, but as PC gamer figured we would never get to play it. So I watched the movie version. I've never even watched a Twitch stream of someone else playing a game before. This was edited together so well, (if you didn't know) you never really know it's a game being played. It was like watching an animated action movie.

Spoilerly question...

PC gamer, so haven't played 'The Last of Us. Don't you get a choice about killing the doctors (I thought you could just grab her and go)? The NPR writer/Astrophysics Professor/author seems to have gotten it wrong. I'm not disputing you have to kill the doctor attacking you, but you don't have to kill 'ALL' the doctors, correct?

Seems Adam Frank went on a killing spree and blamed it on 'Joel' becoming a monster due to the environmental factors of the story and society there in.

It's like giving the 'left behind' people money, they use it to promote psychopathic racial genocide 'in real life'.

Looks good, but surprised after all this time, there's still no character creation to make our own Rico, male or female.

Has it been confirmed Elder Scrolls Online developers gave up on the idea, of the console gamers being in the same world as the PC gamers? I'm just asking since, in the cities it already can be too laggy with too many players. Not to mention, too much constant server shifting (i.e. loading screens for no reasons).

Kind of looks like the love child of Rage & Fallout New Vegas.
Won't be hard for it to be better than Rage. I'm not seeing the FNV connection, unless you mean the faction associations. Still it seems more action than action RPG, at least atm.

...I just hate it when I see a game, Batman or that LotR game, or Assassin's Creed or whatever, where you are fighting a guy, surrounded by his buddies, and they just kinda stand there waiting for you to chain-execute the first guy.

The Driving looks cool, the melee combat looks.. ok, I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on this at least. Hopefully at some point you get to upgrade that deformed slave Max seems to have in the back of his car to at least get a shirt or some sun protection though.
Exactly my thoughts, I really hate beatum'ups with stand around group attacks, but the driving could be cool.

Fuck Adam Baldwin.

Why?

Most likely because he's pretty serious right wing, very anti gay, and big in the gamergate community.

First Ive heard of it. Still, doesnt that describe the character he played on Firefly, like, to perfection?
Not even close, you know Joss Whedon? He's someone who doesn't support that kind of behavior at all, which is why all his shows have strong female leads.
Man-babies grasp desperately at anything, no matter how silly, to discredit Joss Whedon

Bit of a twist /spoiler on the Terminator one, BTW. Didn't watch it until after I sent it in.

Ant Man looks awesome, way better than I would have guessed.

Lmao, don't watch the Terminator preview, it's the whole damn movie, except the last 5 minutes! Flush

A mere 80 GB download on my 7 mbps DSL line, that'll only take 25 hours of 100% bandwidth, to enable a weekend of free play. That's a peculiar value proposition.
After looking at it a bit more, I think it's basically 45 gig. Looks like the 80 gig was including the install files.

The client had gone down to $20 a few times and I imagine it will again before too long so you may want to hold off for now.
I was thinking about that, now I'm not so sure they will do it again for at least 2 years. No reason now, they were trying to get people in to sub them. I'm betting the best sale might be a Flash sale in summer or winter for 50% off.

I got this invitation too, but frak that time limitation. Doesn't ESO have free play with limitations too? If so, then I'd rather play that and take my time.
Nah, it's like Guild Wars 2, buy to play for free.

They could have a minor sale during the weekend, with this event. I doubt there will be any big sales till summer. The Steam version was different originally, since it didn't launch until about six months after release. I'm not really sure how the sales will work now, since no Steam game was involved in the Beta.

Be prepared, it's the 31 gig minimum install. On the Steam page it says 80 gig, iirc.

I will probably never play this, since it offers no neutral or good choice paths in the story. I do hope it's successful PC port sales, so rockstar will get off their dumbasses and port Red Dead Redemption.

No joke, careful with the Game Over link, at least I'm having issues. Until your sure, don't enable scripts it's got a pretty low rating with Web of Trust
