[E3-Sony] The Last of Us Part II – E3 2018 Gameplay Reveal

Can't believe they were so fucking shameless.
They win award for the most amount of scripts per second.

They already did that with TLOU1 famous demo but TLOU2 demo takes the cake. At least TLOU1 was believable. This one on other hand is straight up fantasy. Though i have no doubt many people will eat it up without questioning anything.

I mean you have to be fucking blind to not see scripting everywhere: perfect misses, enemy AI, last moment actions etc.

It still looked great and did a good job of showing that the game plays like Part 1.

- scripted
- no graphics improvement over UC4

and yet it will be overrated as fuck
Are you sure you guys aren't just hating on it because Ellie is a lesbian? ;)

I'll be honest, I didn't need that in a trailer. I mean most of my FemSheps are lesbian, so I am not going to sit here and criticize the love interest. I do criticize the mic drop of it. That is nothing but pandering push back. That isn't good story telling. That should have played out in cut scenes that I got to see unfold in game.

I have a feeling it's not scripted in the sense we're used to. It certainly didn't look like you had to go do the things she did in the trailer (hide under the car, go into the shop). It's just that certain mini scripts get triggered depending on the situation. In any case it looks more fun than TLoU's AI.

The game really looks like its taking all the feathers out of HZD's cap in a good way!

The scripted demo looked cool.
Likely it won't be as good in the real game. Some parts felt like tomb raider with the bow combat. Not sure what the draw is yet, probably being "cinematic". I'd rather have a grittier tomb raider tbh (which we'll get in Sept)

I can understand if people are upset because it basically tells us a major plot point that Ellie gets cured at some point. That's a pretty huge deal since the entire freaking plot of TLoU revolves around her being infected. So to just show her swapping spit is a bit dubious.

So unless it's a dream sequence, it's kind of a big deal to reveal something like that in a trailer. I'm still betting it's some sort of dream/daydream sequence though. Like she wants to have contact with individuals but can't

1 - Yes 100%
2 - Are you blind? This looks flipping amazing.
if you think the gameplay is not scripted then i feel sorry for you, go watch the first gameplay of TLOU 1 and tell me if it plays exactly like the full game

go play UC4 again and see if there is any big improvement in TLOU 2's graphics

Edit: if by "Yes 100%" you mean that you agree with my point then i'm sorry i misunderstood

graphics or not i’m here for that damn story! can’t wait for this game, this whole demo is totally scripted tho, I mean a lot of developers does that.
 
#23
Yep. That's Part 2. Although the starting scene felt kinda forced... I feel that is a statement from the dev team. That's fine, though. Game play looked just like the first and the graphical upgrade let's them set a better atmosphere than the first.

So, with that, I am in. Still, I am disappointed for the lack of Joel. I liked both Joel and Ellie the same. Damned good characters. I hope they don't water down his presence in this.

What makes you think TLOU 2 will look like that all the way?

We only see a tiny portion of the environment.
 
#25
I don't know. I mean it looked amazing IMO and I'll be blown away if the actual game plays like that but I have my doubts.

It looked like.... I don't know what to call it, Dynamic Scripted scenes. Like when she goes under the truck, she shoots the woman and then the guy pulls her out....the way they showed it seems to indicate you don't HAVE to go under the truck or that if you do the whole thing can play out in a different way depending on what you did before (who you killed and so on).
If it's really like that then I'll be extremely impressed

even if the day environment shows the true power of the graphics, look at the faces, it's not that much better than UC4's, it's like 5% improvement, now go watch UC3 and TLOU 1, there was 2 years gap between them and the graphics gap was HUGE
 
#27
i don't know why people keep defending their beloved exclusives, just tell the truth, it's not gonna make you less of a fan if that what you're afraid of

i'm a huge MGS fan and i loved P.T, but Death stranding trailer was trash and the game is probably a walking simulator

So you're telling me to compare an unfinished game to a finished one?

5%? Tales from your ass statement if I've ever heard one.


Game looks stunning.

I can't wait to play it. Have they mentioned a release window at all?
 
#31
It gets a big "meh" from me. I'll probably get it, play through it once, and be done with it like I was with TLoU 1. Don't get the big deal with this series.

The game is not even complete and you're already declaring it a walking simulator? You do know this is a Hideo Kojima game.
 
#33
Either the gameplay is extremely fake and pointless, or the game will be a nightmare to play since any button press could suddenly play out a random contextual sequence instead of doing what you want. Since the entire thing played like a rendered cutscene, I'd bet the former is true. They've lost me either way.
 
#35
so you're telling me the graphics will be improved ?? have you forgotten about UC4's first "In-game" trailer ? or UC4's first REAL gameplay trailer ?? did they improve it in the final game ??
Get some screenshots then we'll compare. Better yet let's wait for Digital Foundry analysis of the trailer.

The fact that you didnt 'need' that in the trailer made me 'need' it even more.

it's pointless to argue with you, i'm not gonna waste my time collecting screenshots for you even though you probably know what i'm saying is true but keep denying it

I sit somewhere around here.. I'll get it from Redbox, beat it in a few days, then move on. They're beautiful games but they just don't grab me.

I'm hoping Naughty Dog break away from UC and TLoU. Try something different..

You make a compelling case! I might have been triggered lol.

Ok ladies and gentlemen weve found the one man whos figured out what the hell death stranding is. You must be a genius. Problem is Hideo Kojima is just 'slightly' more of a genius than you in this world of video games so ill put my faith in him. Thank you come again.

It did, in the first game.

mod edit: Not everyone played the Left Behind DLC. User was just making the point that it was more important for the reveal to show this as a statement rather than let it be discovered organically.

Hey really fucking fantastic animation on that kiss scene, much better than any game I can remember right now. Kissing was always really off putting in games for how unnatural and Team America Sex Scene it looks.

Thank Christ for the ignore feature on here. Now my hype for game can continue without trolls.

Whenever this game comes out, I won't be able to control myself and I know it will consume me and I will love every ounce of it.
