Looks like the Last of Us demo for people who pre-ordered (or maybe just bought, I dunno) is out, and there are a handful of people playing it on Twitch so far. Hopefully GB will do a QL of it, but in the meantime, if people want to check it out that didn't buy Ascension (like me), you can see who all is streaming it here. Seems to be a fairly un-spoilery part from what I've seen, but no promises.

I'm trying to avoid as much footage of the game as possible so that it is fresh to me when I actually play it. But to those who are going ahead and watching and/or playing the demo - does it actually look decent? Or is there some jank here and there?

They won't do a quick look of the demo because they're playing the full game right now.

@ollyoxenfree: It looks pretty damn good. I played it. Just the buildings off in the distance don't look great and when I curb stomped an infected's face, the face looked like it lost all texture. Asides from that, it looks really good.

I really want to see this, but am trying to stay away from as much as I can. Happy to hear it's great though.

I'm going through Naughty Dogs games to see how they changed over time, mostly with the Uncharted series, and I'm thinking this should be a great game. I don't see it being bad. Preordered it today, but avoiding most to all footage of it till I play it myself.

But just to clarify: You are pretty much beating the shit out of zombies and crazy rapists, right?

IIRC a QA some weeks ago mentioned that this demo is scripted with fixed encounters and happenings.

@ollyoxenfree: In the demo, just zombies. Although I can't say definitively whether or not they are zombie rapists. The demo is pretty short. I couldn't resist playing it and I don't regret doing so now that I have. And in case anybody's wondering, you don't need the God of War disc in the system to play it, which means you can borrow it, download the demo, and then give the disc back.

Does it spoil what an Ofus is? Cause I'd rather go into the game not knowing that.

@ollyoxenfree: The only enemies in the demo were the infected and they are HARD. Stealth was the only way to take them out because when they hear you, they chase you in packs and shooting is kind of tough when you have small amounts of ammo.The infected enemies with fungus on their face kill you instantly if they latch onto you. There's also apparently more human enemy encounters then infected. So you're beating the shit out of them, yes, but they kill you way more easily. That games intense man.

It looks like a more polished version of that I Am Alive game that came out a while back - this demo specifically felt very reminiscent of the QL that the duders did for that. Clamber through busted ass building, fight random wackos, etc.

The demo is available to anyone with a copy of GoW: A, so you can go rent it from Redbox like I did. I have to say that the demo was awesome. It my heart racing by the end of it. The only thing I would recommend is skipping the trailer that automatically plays at the end of the demo.

Good to hear a few positive comments about this! I've been very tempted to download the demo (especially since it was just about the only good thing related to God of War - Ascenion, which I wasted my money on...), but since I've kept myself somewhat spoiler-free since it's first revelation at E3, I'm going to keep it that way 'till next week's friday...can't wait!
