New Trailer (Red band)

#1 Edited by kellychun75 (5 posts) -

Sony debuted this new trailer and TV spot for The Last of Us during tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead on AMC. The video teases the story behind The Last of Us and shows new characters, new environments, and new, never before seen action sequences, but it's Amazon-exclusive. So if you want it, you must get it from Amazon. What do you guys think of this trailer, and some of the content being amazon exclusive?

I'm weirdly unexcited for this game and I cant quite put my finger on why. I guess I had my fill of the action from a Naughty Dog game and the adult dude/young girl dynamic from the Walking Dead and to a certain extent Bioshock Infinite?

goddamn i love that theme. really just brings you down.

i was never ever super pumped for this. i remember being excited at the reveal, but never excited like, i dunno, half-life 2 excited. but this seems like it could be a similar experience to Alan Wake for me. something i was never particularly pumped for, but eventually played through and was blown away.

Just got round to watching this after Ryan mentioned it on the bombcast. If they can maintain the level of tension and 'survival' gameplay that the various gameplay demos have shown this game could be quite special. I'm way into the southern twang Troy Baker's got going on here too after recently watching every episode of justified.

Wow, the gore in this game is pretty intense. Makes me think I'll be hesitant to be a violent bastard during the action sequences.

I'm still very excited for this. Its just that, Ima go ahead and surprise myself with how much I like the campaign. I'm a'hundred percent, going to buy this. I'm just looking forward to the multiplayer, more than I am the campaign.

@euandewar: After the reveal at last year's E3, I was quite certain that if The Last of Us wasn't one of my five favorite games all generation it'd be a personal disappointment. I continued to feel that way most of the year, up until they started showing what gameplay looked like with the creepers, and my interest has waned more and more since, really for no particular reason other than it reminded me of the ways both Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 took me on great, awe-inspiring rides up to the points where both bucked the rails and turned into two of the lamest games I've had the pleasure of completing this generation.

Seeing the infected reminds me of that a little too much for me to put all my faith in Naughty Dog right now. I fully expect 80% of The Last of Us to be stunning and unlike anything I've seen in a game before. But it's that 20% nagging at me from my subconscious that has me very unsure if a purchase of this game would be a smart idea, of if I should just wait for the inevitable PS+ subsidy.

Yes. Probably my last PS3 game.

Perhaps because it gives off a movie feel more than it does a game feel?

I understand that the trailers for most games these days look like movie trailers but this one across as closer to a movie trailer than most. At least to me. I'd like to see more gameplay than I've seen. All I really know is that it's a third person shooter where ammo is going to be short, which doesn't necessarily sell it to me.

Still, I'm quite hopeful for it. Maybe this will be Naughty Dog's return to the list of my favorite developers. I wasn't a big fan of Uncharted.

Wow, the gore in this game is pretty intense. Makes me think I'll be hesitant to be a violent bastard during the action sequences.

I also thought of this. Few games make blood and gore have any sort of meaningful impact, and this one really seems like it could, though chopping a dude's head off with a lazy stroke of a probably dull knife was a bit of a stretch.
