    "Abandoned cities reclaimed by nature. A population decimated by a modern plague. Survivors are killing each other for food, weapons; whatever they can get their hands on.

    Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US."


    I am hyped already, who doesnt like post apoc here ? And not only its post apoc but its ps3 only, i hope it turns out to be a very good game so that the non console codexers are immensely butthurt again ;)

    I'm a fag for all things post apocalyptical but this looks like yet another cinematic experience™, so...meh.

    Also, that dude looks totally hawkesome.

    I'm a console fag, a PS3 fag, a Naughty Dog (the devs) fag, an action adventure fag, so yep, this game is for me.

    Wtf ? Is that Drake with a beard ? They could at least try to make him look different. Kinda enjoyed the Uncharted games, but I think I'll pass on this one. Too many other stuff to buy.

    Judging from the trailer, it's going to be another zombie game. Could be good if they actually do implement some proper survival mechanisms, but I doubt it somehow. More likely, there's going to be a lot of melee combat to conserve ammo, and stuff like that. Could be good anyway, but could also be fucking awful.

    As an aside, if they're trying to mimic The Road, they may as well do it properly and go with an ecological catastrophe instead of zombies. Then they could just have enemies be roaming bands of sociopathic cannibals, which actually made sense in that setting. But I guess that would be too depressing for the console gamers - and you can't show off bloom if the Sun is barely visible behind clouds of dust, and everything is dying.

    Lovely, a new console game with engine rendered cutscene after engine rendered cutscene.

    Pretty much this. Expecting Uncharted: Zombie Edition.

    Why anyone still hasn't made a zombie/post-apoc game with proper survival mechanics is beyond me. STALKER probably comes closest, and that's kinda sad.

    Dermatologists and ethicists should look into the fact that good guys are disproportionally better looking than bad guys. Guy Pearce realised this fact during the filming of The Road and, refusing to play such a shallow character, gave himself bodgy teeth.

    again with the running zombies, and what is the explaination of the zombies this time?

    i would rather have seen a game where you scrounge for food/ammo and just avoid/engage other survivors, not mutated monsters/zombies/dongs

    The Zombie genre is still undeveloped. It's not peak yet. Stagnant at the moment because of the derpiness of writers and authors, but that's a different issue.

    The Zombie "genre" sells, it won't be going away for some time.

    I want vampires wars, you have to barricade in the daylight then hunt them at night... wait the other way around for humans. Maybe you can play both species.

    The zombie genre works because it neatly covers the explanation of why the player must kill vast legions of mindless foes that possess absolutely no self-preservation instincts, without any uncomfortable explanations of why all these people the player is killing are apparently functionally retarded and why nobody else in the universe, including the character himself, seems to care that he has killed hundreds of people.

    It doesn't really work well as a concept since vampires and humans exhibit a distinct predator/prey dynamic in which the vampires still lose if they wipe out all the humans.

    My age is only 99 years and I still was unable to view. The end of the cinematic shows an absolutely HUGE barren city street... that has been blocked off from the player by a wall of destroyed cars. FOR FUCKS SAKE! DEVELOPERS ARE STILL DOING THAT SHIT? WHY? This is not 1999! Don't block the player off behind invisible or tacky walls.

    I like the graphics. There's no way they're going to keep that quality up for the whole game though, which means that the rest of the game is going to be sewers/warehouses and abandoned factories.
