Can’t wait for Last of Us 2 to fail. Get woke.

Whats "Woke" about this game? I've been avoiding all news about it so nothing is spoiled.

The plot involves some lgbt characters and some are killed off while others kill other non-lgbt characters. That's about as vague as I can make it without getting into spoiler territory. So of course you have people upset that a minority representation is being killed or is killing others (you finally feature us and its negative!!!) and you have other people upset that they are in the game at all (omg they shoehorned lgbt in get woke go broke etcetc!!!). Those are the usual refrains from reddit by the way, not my thoughts. As usual people bring their biases and silly nonsense into everything. People are also ignoring all of the context and exposition that happens in between the 3 minutes of leaked videos. Imagine seeing the end of RDR2 without all of the in between.

The plot is actually a pretty simple setup and nowhere near as controversial as others are making it. I'm not sure why people were expecting a happy ending but they aren't going to get one. It will still be a really cool game and an interesting story I bet, Naughty Dog are masters of their craft.

I recall from the original game that one of the characters has a lesbian moment. I remember at the time that I thought it was tastefully written and was presented in an appropriate emotional build up. If the sequel is simply a follow up from that then I dont care. I'll give it a shot.

Valve has supervisors now?

Interesting to see how this plays out. While it does sound like Valve was generous to this person, all it takes is one individual with an axe to grind to cause strife(I guess that statement can go either way). Then again there could just be a misunderstanding.

Wasn't expecting this. I didn't mind the older ones. My nephew played them on gamecube and they weren't too bad.
I thought krome went under like a lot of Aussie studios did a while back.

I just assumed dedicated servers would have been in from the get go, shame this isn't the case. I hope they listen to the fans.

Still, I love the look of this and I'm glad to read there's bots for offline play. I'll probably get this day one.

Wow one George Carlin reference causes an eruption.
Just for the record I like Anita and I agree with many of her points, but not all of them. What she says doesn't bother me, even the things I don't agree with. The thing is, all she's doing by complaining is appealing to men to do what she wants, which isn't very female empowering. If she wants real change then she should put her money where her mouth is and make a game herself, with an all female staff. Action speaks louder than words. I'd buy a copy.



Sorry, SS (really? You chose "SS" as your name?) but that's a bullshit response.
First, a person can criticize trends in an industry without needing to join that industry and try to improve it. "Oh, you didn't like the movie? Go make your own movie then." See how dumb that sounds?
Second, if the only people allowed to criticize an industry were those participating in it, said criticism would be extremely myopic and weak. In fact, you'd have almost no criticism at all.

SS is my initials, not some allusion to anything else, so I don't get what that has to do with the discussion.
You make a facile argument, taste in a movie is not the same as trying to make a cultural change in an industry, so yes I see how dumb your point sounds. Where did I write that she has to be in the industry to criticize it? Anybody can do that and I wouldn't stop her, but she obviously wants to change things which is a different kettle of fish. If you want to change things you need to take real action, not sit around and point the finger in the hopes that people will listen and do it for you. Her making a game is just one idea for an action,(you know, leading by example) where as making a video series telling people things they already know is pissing up a rope.

I'm sure you'll disagree with me and that's fine, but I don't understand why everyone is getting so heated over this. Its really not a big issue.
Here's something to put it into perspective http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZgYso0vxnQ

Presumably a multi-million dollar budget and they cant afford actors that can do a French accent.

I see this kind of comment a lot when it comes to games, but believe it or not, it's intentional. Ubisoft is a French company, and their biggest studio is in Montreal. Most of the developers are probably French speakers. It's not as if they are being lazy or ignorant or can't find people with French accents. They just don't want voice actors with thick accents. It can make people hard to understand, and in the worst cases, can be very grating to the ears to hear for hours on end.

This is why you'll see thicker accents trimmed back to be merely the flavor of an accent. Native French speakers usually have very thick accents when speaking English. It's not very pleasant to the ears.

For example, Edward Kenway was voiced by a genuine Welsh actor, but not one with a particularly thick Welsh accent.

Basically, no one wants to listen to more accented voices. They are fucking annoying. It's like talking to Samesh in Customer Care for the 20-40 hour length of a game.

Its a shame that its intentional, I can't say accents bother me. It sounds a little bit more authentic that's all.
I hate to be the guy that whines about "dumbing things down" for the audience, but I find this sort of thing annoying. Anyway its only a minor gripe, I'd still probably get it, I do like the setting over all.

If thieves were more reluctant to steal phones then nobody would need to replace them. Which means that would eat into the phone manufacturers profits, and I'm pretty sure they would much rather have a slice of that $2.5bn.
