The Last Of Us Remastered - Part 12

image: playstation.com
We're getting pretty close to the end here with The Last Of Us! At some point I may consider doing a New Game+ to grab some shots from sections I missed due to not thinking of doing this at the time (also, PS4 Trophies. Precious, precious Trophies that mean nothing at all!).

Of course, I am expecting my schedule for work any time soon, so who knows how many more posts I'll get done before it slows down.

Anywho, enjoy the next set.

A few days have past since the last post, meaning it is time for the obligatory update! Some freaky/disturbing stuff within.

The Last Of Us Remastered - Part 10

Been a while, time for more of The Last Of Us! I knew this was going to happen to moment I started playing Elder Scrolls Online.

I got nothing to preface this with, so here's the obligatory "hit the jump" sentence.

InFamous: Second Son - Part 2

image: playstation.com
Time for the second and final set of InFamous: Second Son pics.

But first, I must say that this year's E3 reveals were pretty stellar. Mass Effect: Andromeda and Gears 4 (and the previously gushed upon Fallout 4) are on the "to obsess over" list. Really liked the Star Wars: Battlefront footage, but it's out too soon after Fallout 4. Dark Souls 3 will be more delightful masochism and nerd rage. And DOOM looks like a great treat for old fans and those of us who played it later when it went up on Steam, and it's sure to stir up the moral panic-y types. I haven't watched it yet, but I am sure I will love the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided gameplay demo. Backwards compatibility for the Xbox One is great but all the people who traded their games in for the One are probably understandably annoyed.

On the flip side:

The Black Ops 3 demo used really, really, boring campaign footage, which is a shame because I think the Black Ops campaigns are the best of the franchise. I'm sure there will be more eventful parts, but that was way too underwhelming for a franchise known for being "like Michael Bay, but video games". And like Battlefront, it's too close to the release of Fallout 4.

I was also pretty disappointed that Sony didn't show off Salt And Sanctuary, the new game from Ska Studios, the creators of Dishwasher and Charlie Murder. I've been watching their dev streams on Twitch and the game is looking solid. They are also a two person husband-wife studio (with cats), and could have greatly benefited from the exposure.

And with that out of the way, hit the jump for more super powered fun times, in screenshot form!

The Last Of Us Remastered - Part 9 (story spoilers)

image: playstation.com
It's time for another round of The Last Of Us Remastered!

I recently started playing The Elder Scrolls Online, so you'll have to forgive me if I manage to forget to post an update. Last night around 3-ish I said, "I'll just finish this quest and go to bed" and it was 4:30 before I knew it. Yeah.

Anyway, hit that jump for some spoiler-ific shots. Maybe disturbing content for some.

InFamous: Second Son - Part 1

image: playstation.com
Taking a small break from The Last Of Us, I recently logged back into InFamous: Second Son to grab some shots in Photo Mode.

A brief plug before we get to that, though. The Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive is on sale this for Deals With Gold this week. If you have a Gold account, you can grab the standard or deluxe editions on the dashboard at a discount. If you have the game but no DLC, you can grab the Season Pass at a discount as well (Deluxe comes with the pass plus some extra guns and melee skins). It's one of the most fun games I've ever played, and I highly recommend it. Best of all, you can play three hours for free and keep your save progress (I think. That's usually how it works). All info is right here.

Now then:

Second Son is an open world game where Delsin Rowe, an Akomish Native American with the power to absorb the powers of other Conduits (who have the ability to manipulate materials such as smoke and neon) seeks to absorb the powers of Augustine, a Conduit who embeds concrete shards into the bodies of his tribe members, so he can heal them. Delsin travels to Seattle to do this, and Seattle is put in lockdown by Augustine's DUP forces (Department of Unified Protection), who are there to capture any runaway Conduits. Second Son features a Karma system, which goes towards Good or Evil depending on the player's choices in terms of play style and plot decisions.

All shots are taken post-game, and there are no real plot spoilers.

The Last Of Us Remastered - Part 8

image: playstation.com
It's been a few days, so here's another update.

Before that, though, I of course must voice my excitement for the announcement of Fallout 4:

Okay, that video is 10 hours long, don't watch the whole thing (unless you really want to). I absolutely love the Fallout series, and cannot wait to explore the wasteland again. I just hope it's a bit more stable than previous games, though it really isn't a Fallout game without game breaking bugs, is it?

Anyway, onto the next segment of The Last Of Us!

The Last Of Us Remastered - Part 7

image: playstation.com
Time for another helping of The Last Of Us Remastered. I have finished the story and have all the pics organized. I won't bombard you with all of them at once, of course. The next course will be to do the same with the Left Behind DLC.

I'll save my gushing over the game for the final post in this series. For now, hit the jump for the next set of shots.
