    So given my recent playthrough of TLOU2, I decided to take another shot at TLOU1 since it's been a few years since I last played it.

    So far, I've finished first 2 chapters and oh boy. This is a much better game than the sequel on so many levels. And yes, I know, the overall idea with the vaxx doesn't make much sense, but that doesn't matter. It's good enough of a plot device to keep things going. The characters and dialogues are much, much better. Seeing how Joel and Ellie first meet and start building their relationship is just as cool as it was back when I first played it. It just works™. The gameplay loop is pretty much the same, but tighter levels and much better pacing (and in some instances, sense of urgency) make it a joy to play. Interactions between Joel and Ellie, trying to figure out what's next for them and a general sense of adventure help a lot too. Moreover, what I didn't remember, is that the world outside QZ is basically uncharted grounds not just for Ellie but also for Joel. They both learn (including from each other) and cross boundaries they have not crossed before.

    The above stands in complete contrast to the sequel where I'm forced to go on a lame revenge quest, do things I never wanted to do. The story, locations and pacing are so bad it was a complete slog to play. To make things worse, I am then forced to play the roided woman and care about her and her friends after they've been made unredeemable in the first 30 minutes of the game. There's too much to cover it's such a shit show with so many nonsensical plot points. And then, at the very end, after the game FORCED me to do all kinds of fucked up shit that I never wanted to do but had no other choice, the game has the audacity to try and sell me some kind of moral lesson that violence is bad mkay? What the fuck? BTW, they even made Tommy unlikeable in the lesbian home scene. He shows up as a bitter and pathetic cripple who still seeks further revenge, when in the previous scene (before abby showed up at the cinema) he called it even with Abby, saying that it's time to go home.

    How can so many things go so wrong?

    Cuckmann found out that not everyone is enjoying his diarrhea and now he is trolling people on twitter, like an insecure little bitch.

    It's unbelievable but this trainwreck is still rolling.







    TLDR:

    Neil Cuckmann is so insecure that he wants to destroy Bruce Straley legacy. He must make Tlou more shitty than Tlou2 hence he will remake The Last of US with an emasculated Joel.

    Sony killed Days Gone 2 for some Uncharted game. Bend Studio asked to be taken off the project because nobody wants to work for a company with 70% turnover.

    Sony retardation just lost them this generation of consoles. The fuck happened with this company.

    The remake is brilliant. TLoU on PS5, TLoU2 remade on PS6 and so on. This'll be the longest running franchise with only two entries ever.

    Fucking abysmal strategy from Sony tbh, if MS nails a wider portfolio of smaller titles with greater variety & creativity, they could really gain some ground this generation. Sony's gains were enormous back in the PS1/2 days with its huge library and developers weren't afraid to take risks, it was a great time with mid-tier games actually existing, lol.

    As for this shitshow, Last of Us doesn't need a remake, but I'm sure they won't miss this important opportunity to inject some new "Ellie was a lesbian all along guys, see, see!" material into the main game, rather than just the dlc. What a joke, remaking a game that just got a remaster last gen. Ah well, the whole thing will implode in time.

    seems like it would be financially smarter to spread development cost over a couple dozen AA games and hope a few become a hit rather than lumping a massive budget on the next movie-game title

    Shame, Days Gone was a wholesome game, well, if you remove the parts of excessive murdering and zombies murdering people... and yeah well, the apocalypse in general of course.

    So, I hated TLOU1 gameplay and dropped it after 5 hours or so. Will I like TLOU2?

    I can completely understand Days Gone not getting a sequel due to production issues and reception. For years I saw it at trade shows and I was surprised it still hadn't come out, and when it finally did, people barely talked about it except how generic and souless it was. I can't understand them throwing more money at TLoU though.

    According to the co-director, it's because we're too cheap.

    Oh, there is a lot that I want to talk about with Neil but I'll save that for another day with a review I plan on making for NMA after I make my review for the Frontier. One of the things I will talk about is Neil's creepy hebephilia. It is quite clear to me, after seeing the DLC for the first TLoU that Neil is a hebephile. He has an unnatural attraction to young girls. Amy Henning was creeped out by Neil wanting to explore the sexuality of a 14 year old girl and her disagreement with Neil over this caused her to lose her job at Naughty Dog. Then there was of course him wanting to explore the transgenderism of another 12-14 year old girl. There is also of course his creepy attraction to Laura Bailey and how he insisted that he perform the motion capture sex scene with her and how he has TWICE made her voice his fetish waifus for him.

    It looks like Bruce Straley had enough with idiots trying to discredit him.

    People today were cancelled for much less, and this guy is still in his place? What kind of protection does he have? Let's look up a Wiki article:

    Yeah dude, the whole animal kingdom waits until their females reach a socially constructed age where it's fine to fuck them, as opposed to basing it on biological signs, because that's unnatural.

    There's a good number of game series where the sequel takes the criticism of the previous game seriously and produces a much better sequel. Its getting rarer due to devs/pubs with heads shoved really far up their ass and over investing in one product that results in single bad games sinking previously successful companies, but it has happened.
