It's on in about ten minutes. I don't really know what else to say but to mention that this is on as a reminder in case others don't know or forgot. I hope this isn't seen as spam.

Anyone else going to watch, and excited for the remastered tomorrow?

Not sure why this didn't hit the front page or on the forums. Four minutes.

Haven't you heard? Last of Us apparently isn't actually a good game because people only liked it when it came out and then turned sour on it later on. Just like with Bioshock Infinite. I really don't understand why.

What exactly is that stream?

As far as excitement goes not even a little bit because I am basically going to buy the game tomorrow and then I have to wait two weeks for my fucking PS4 to get back from the repair center.

@somedelicook: No, I didn't really hear that. I loved the game when I played it, and still do, so... Eh.

@ll_exile_ll: It's the cast talking about the game, and composer composing. That's about all I know.

You're just reading asshole comments. A lot of people still love it, but don't comment about it as much as they did because it's a year old. It's nothing like bioshock infinite which had instant backlash. It's more like MGS4 or GTA4. There are a lot of people who like those games but don't talk about them anymore because they aren't new. But the assholes who never liked it and are mad that so many people liked it love to spew their shit in the comment section of any place that concerns said thing they hated.

Geoff Keighley is the Ryan Seacrest of video games.

@aegon: Yeah. It's weird. They're just acting scenes out. They're doing an alright job too, but I am actually nervous they'll mess up. Anyways yeah, don't watch if you haven't played the game.

Have to hand it to Ashley Johnson, she's a natural at live acting. Hope to see her in more stuff cause she's really good.

This is really interesting, I wish I had a chance to see it in person. Hearing the lines from the game being delivered by the VA is pretty weird, they feel so baked together with their characters.

This is has the really awesome quality of being so sincere, that it's slightly cringe-worthy and incredible at the same time.

I'm really glad they're doing this.

Also, being an actor seems really hard right about now.

They... started singing. I thought it was an interesting idea when I stumbled across this thread a few minutes ago but... er... they started singing and that was a bit much for me.

This was weird. If it's over, I'm not sure what the point was. I like how sincere they all are, and that's great, but for this... Eh, I don't know. Weird. I would have much rather they just talk about the game.

It was kind of fun. More than anything, I'm really glad to play it again tomorrow. But I haven't dreaded doing anything in long while.

Christ this game is good.

Reaaaaaaalllly not a fan of cutting off streams so the people there can see something "really really cool"

I mean, why even say anything about it.

To troll the assholes in twitch chat? I really hope that's the reason.

I enjoyed it. Would have been nice to have the whole cast there so they could do all the scenes but I thought what they did worked well enough.

I thought it was neat. Troy Baker is dreamy.

Just to be clear, that was the only instance of singing. You might already be aware, but that segment was in reference to a joke they played on Troy during development. They released a video of it sometime in the last year if you missed it. The rest of the show, that I can tell, was just them acting out scenes from the game (without the singing).

That was just great. I really enjoyed seeing the actors behind the characters go on stage performing different iconic scenes throughout the game. Seeing those scenes again, but with the actual actors, really instilled an appreciation in me for their work.

For anyone wanting to know what the special surprise is, taken from GAF and all but confirmed by Keighley. Spoilers of course.

This takes place 4 years after the ending.

So the big surprise wasn't TLOU movie teaser, UC4 gameplay, or a freebie to take home. It was a deleted scene acted out. It was from AFTER the final scene in the game. In the scene, Ellie is in her room at Tommy's place, listening to her iPod/CD player etc. Joel enters the room and wants to talk to Ellie. He brings out a guitar and sings a song(Troy Baker played the guitar AND sang in the voice. Fucking amazing). Joel shares a joke that he tells Ester, a woman he's now dating from the camp, with Ellie. "What's the bad thing about eating a clock? It's time consuming." They laugh, Joel leaves the room, and Ellie strums a string. End scene, end journey...perhaps.

I didn't like Bioshock Infinite whilst I was playing it if that helps. This stream was nice. Everyone involved seems to be really proud of their involvement, and they should. They all did a great job.
