Yesterday’s article about The Witcher got some comments along the lines of “see, it’s fully possible to make a good TV show based on a video game.” This is incorrect. The Witcher actually comes from a series of novels, which both the Netflix series and the CD Projekt Red games are based on. If we’re talking game adaptions, The Witcher doesn’t technically count.
The Last of Us
The Last Of Us Part II is one of the most anticipated video games of 2020 (so we expect to be hearing about another delay any second now). But it’s been quite a long time since The Last Of Us Part I came out. Putting it into perspective, we were just hearing about the Playstation 4 at the time. Now we’re just hearing about the Playstation 5.
Thanks to the new trailer (and release date), The Last Of Us Part II is on everyone’s mind. Whether it was timed this way or not, it’s the perfect opportunity for Materia Collective to release a remix soundtrack album of the original’s music (originally created by Gustavo Santaolalla). The Last of Us Remixed contains covers composed by Taylor Ambrosio Wood, who’s created soundtracks for a few indie games.
At the PlayStation Experience today, Sony announced a sequel to the beloved game The Last Of Us. Titled simply The Last Of Us Part 2, the game will once again feature main characters Joel and Ellie. However, they will be older than they were in the first game.
The video games are made nowadays, it’s not surprising that so many of them are turned into major motion pictures. And while many don’t work, or make much money, there are a few surprises, as well as adaptations that hopefully will live up to the games they’re based off of. One such hopeful title was a movie for The Last of Us. Which has for years been lauded as a masterpiece in storytelling.
It had to happen (or did it)? Rick and Morty wound up in the apocalypse and have to fend for themselves, just like the protagonists of a really great PS3 video game. This is the latest cover of Oni Press’s Rick and Morty comic book. Note that they strike the same poses as Joel and Ellie do in the game, and it’s a nice touch that they’re surrounded by Meeseeks instead of zombies.
Last week the internet went into overload when a video from Naughty Dog seemed to accidentally reveal that the developer was working on The Last of Us 2, a sequel to their highly successful zombie apocalypse action-adventure game that has been available on the PlayStation 3 since 2013. Fans have been clamoring for a new title to carry on the story for some time now and with the seeming confirmation that there would be more games, they were rightfully excited.
Neil Druckmann, the writer behind The Last Of Us, has now released A Second Chance At Sarah, his first original graphic novel, through Dark Horse. If you liked The Last Of Us — and of course you did, everybody does — then you really owe it to yourself to seek out A Second Chance At Sarah, which is just as emotional, dramatic and (at times) humorous as the Naughty Dog game, and you won’t have to wait two or three years for development and debugging.
Good news for fans of The Last Of Us, which should be pretty much everyone who has ever owned a PlayStation 3 or 4; it looks like The Last Of Us 2 is happening!
If you’re a fan of The Last Of Us you will probably already know about One Night Live – a one-off, live script reading of some key scenes from the critically acclaimed The Last Of Us. Well, for anyone who wasn’t able to go to the show (which I’m sure is most of us), thePlayStation official YouTube channel has uploaded the show for anyone to watch.
Christophe Balestra, Co-President of Naughty Dog, posted an image today on Twitter of The Last of Us edition of the PS4 console. “How do you like my PS4?” was said by Balestra in his Twitter post. It is unknown whether or not The Last of Us PS4 is a single production, just a customized normal PS4, or if it will be produced for consumers. The console features a simple graphic with The Last of Us in large letters on the top of the PS4.
Speaking with Digital Spy, Naughty Dog‘s Community Strategist Arne Meyer has said there is “definitely” no more single player DLC for The Last Of Us. Naughty Dog‘s critically acclaimed third-person survival story won critics over when it was released last year, receiving not only Game of the Year awards, but also Game of the Generation awards.
