About the only real problem with the writing is that some of the settlements (mostly in the first area) are kind of under developed.
Offshoot topic: I played through Days Gone, almost 100% completion as far as achievements etc. and the writing was the weakest part of the game. I would have preferred having more total weapons on hand simultaneously also, but all games seem to have moved away from Halflife/Quake style dozens of weapons on your back at once, to console-ish 2-3 weapons at a time. Oh well. Mechanically though I thought the combat in Days Gone was pretty good. I thought that was a completely different studio and team than The Last of Us though? Where are you guys reading they are involved in some way... just in the PC port?
The Last of Us PC version is supposed to come out in March? I am planning on picking it up, finally. I do not have any modern consoles.

Wow, that game is that hot now? I didn't think it was that good when I tried one of its free weekends.

I sure hope this Apple stuff gets off their network eventually, because I really don't want to give them money.

The only “wtf this is hard” fight was malenia, who is optional. The others were pretty in line with past games.
Pretty fair assessment. I beat everything but Malenia, but that fight basically made me lose interest in playing further.
