    Naughty Dog Working on an Unannounced Title

    In an interview with Game Informer, Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells revealed that in addition to Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us Remastered, the studio is working on another unannounced title. When detailing the different undertakings Naughty Dog is tackling at the moment including Uncharted and The Last of Us he said, "We've got other projects in the works that are in the very early stages. We have at least four different pretty significant things going on right now." Later in the interview he described the unannounced game. "We definitely have another project on the scale of Uncharted in very early pre-production stages. We have the sizable team that it takes to get something like that off of the ground, but it's got a long runway in front of it. We have a lot of great ideas and some stuff that is already getting everybody jazzed and excited. So, it's a long way off before we can really start talking about it in detail." With Naughty Dog's track record, this is definitely something to get excited about even if it is a long way off. Could it be an Uncharted spin-off, The Last of Us 2, something completely original? Only time will tell. For now keep it locked on Game Podunk for all things Uncharted 4 and Naughty Dog. Source: Game Informer

    The Last of Us Confirmed to be Coming to PS4

    There have been rumors for some time now that The Last of Us would get a remastered treatment for a PS4 release, much like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition earlier this year, but until now it was just a lot of hearsay. However, SCE President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida has now confirmed the existence of the PS4 remastered version, which has recently started to be advertised on the PlayStation Store's web portal and is now appearing in retailer listings. According to Game Informer, retailer listings have mentioned the inclusion of the Abandoned Territories and Reclaimed Territories map packs as well as the Left Behind DLC. The game will be in 1080p, and according to Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann, they are targeting 60fps as far as visual fidelity goes. One more inclusion that has been detailed directly by Sony is a commentary over the cinematics by Druckmann, Troy Baker (the voice of Joel), and Ashley Johnson (the voice of Ellie). Also, pre-ordering the title will net you 100 supply points for multiplayer, two skins for Joel and Ellie, increased crafting and healing speed in single-player, increased reload speed in single-player for the 9mm, and increased clip capacity for the rifle. Pre-ordering digitally will get you a few different things, including the brawler survival skill, extra loadout points, the Jeep cap and surgical mask, which are all from the multiplayer mode. The Last of Us Remastered will be priced at $59.99 though no official release date has been detailed just yet. Are you excited for The Last of Us Remastered?

    The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC Review

    The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC (PS3) Developed by Naughty Dog Published by Sony Computer Entertainment Released February 14, 2014 Review Written March 8, 2014 Originally Posted on The Time Heist Blog WARNING: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FROM THE MAIN CAMPAIGN. ONLY READ IF YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN. Finally finding time to hit the keys again, here“s my review of The Last of Us DLC, Left Behind. As Naughty Dog“s first attempt at single player DLC following the positive reception of The Last of Us, this addition to the main story has some big shoes to fill. Not surprisingly, Left Behind does fill those shoes quite well in maintaining the story flow similar to the main game as well as bringing the emotional drama that many of us have come to savor from the Last of Us. Left Behind“s entire three hour campaign sets us in the role of Ellie. Taking place a few months before the main game“s story as well as during a prominent section of the main game, Left Behind uses a method of slow growing tension that constantly keeps the player on edge. Knowing that certain events are about to transpire left me anticipating their occurrence during my entire playthrough. This setup actually worked in way that helped create a greater immersive experience. Naughty Dog went about this by utilizing interjectory flashbacks and flash-forwards to allow the player to recover from intense encounters while also fearing what else is ahead while they work towards the next flash-forward. Simply put, playing as Ellie in Left Behind is as nerve racking as it was in main story. Naughty Dog says, “Happy Valentine“s Day!!!†A new character introduced during Left Behind“s flashbacks is Riley, a friend of Ellie. Riley is actually a very likeable character, almost complementary to Ellie“s personality in a multitude of ways. During these flashbacks, Riley helps build more character development for Ellie that many fans wanted during the main story, and reminding us that Ellie is still a young girl growing in disease-ridden world. Interestingly the flashbacks involve mostly a bunch of mini-games and several opportunities for dialogue. These mini-games are the reason I felt the flashbacks were a sort of emotional break when interspersed between the flash-forwards, but the flashbacks didn“t offer full emotional leisure as you still expected a certain event to occur every time you returned to the flashback. Speaking of the flash-forwards, this is where the meat of this DLC is at. Taking place immediately after Joel is impaled during the main story; these parts of Left Behind reveal the struggles Ellie had to go through to keep Joel barely hanging onto life. These segments were the most intense as Ellie would need to rely on stealth to survive against both infected and hunters. Battling against enemies while also being wary of a few jumpy moments, playing this portion was very satisfying as it helped divulge more of Ellie“s inner strength while presenting how she felt about her relationship with Joel. After seeing Ellie fight tooth and nail to keep Joel alive I began to feel more like Joel“s actions during the main story“s ending were within reason. Comparatively, if the roles were switched I would believe Ellie would have reacted in the same fashion; both needing to go off the deep end to maintain the last facet of survival. Aim for the bushes! In total Left Behind is a great addition to the Last of Us. Though there aren“t any big changes to the game“s mechanics, Naughty Dog did compose scenarios where the player could pit infected against hunters. These moments were always satisfying as I“d use them to take out the final survivors after initiating a battle amongst them via a bottle from the distance. In conclusion, the DLC is only three hours long at the cost of $15. This may seem like a bit of a stretch in terms of value, but as a fan of the game, Left Behind is a worthwhile addition. It“ll make you crave more of Last of Us“ universe while momentarily tiding you over until Naughty Dog“s next rendition. Go buy it and don“t get left behind… Review Written by Solid-Alchemist If you enjoyed this review and would like to check out some other opinion pieces, come on over to The Time Heist.

    The Last Of Us

    From the album: Kaptain's Gallery

  5. The Last of Us is very nearly upon us. We're just a few measly days away from fighting for every single bullet we can find, and I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl. I've been waiting for The Last of Us since the day they aired the original teaser trailer, and unlike games like The Last Guardian, which I've been waiting forever for, this one will actually be coming out very soon. But now that it has been practically confirmed for coming out as a Day 1 PSN download, I'm slightly frightened. Well, more like extremely frightened. Games are getting larger and larger, and judging from Naughty Dog's recent track record... The Last of Us will be no digital walk in the park. But their track record isn't the only thing I'm worried about. The Increasing Size of Uncharted Games The very first game in the series, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune has a whopping 17.5 gigabyte file size despite releasing just a few months after the launch of the Playstation 3. While that number was absolutely terrifying, it was bound to get worse. With the release of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves came an even larger file size. Clocking in at 21 gigabytes, it only barely gets beaten by my personal largest download of 22 gigabytes for the game Ni No Kuni. But as we all know, there is a third game in the Uncharted series. And this one blows pretty much every other game out of the water. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception comes out swinging with an absolutely impossible file size of 42.5 gigabytes. While that is an impressively large size for a game, it gets so much worse when you factor in the fact that you need twice the size of the game to be able to download and install it. Totally worth the twelve years it took to download Taking that into account, you need 85 gigabytes of your Playstation 3 hard drive open to be able to download Uncharted 3. The average PS3 owner likely has a hard drive between 120-160 gigabytes. A download of Uncharted 3 by itself takes up more than half of an average gamer's PS3. Even though this 80+ gigabyte size only counts during the download itself, you still have to have it open until you've installed the game. The problem is that the nightmare looming over the horizon with The Last Of Us could be even bigger than Uncharted 3. While it is hard to believe, the Bluray discs used in the Playstation 3 can hold around a maximum of 52 gigabytes. Uncharted 3 got dangerously close to that limit, and there is a small chance The Last Of Us could get even closer. While I doubt Naughty Dog would be crazy enough to fill a the disc to the brim with content, we could be looking at a download that requires over 100 gigabytes of free space! The Silver Lining And The Worrisome Report While a 100 gigabyte free space limit would be a nightmare for every Playstation owner that makes use of Sony's digital download service, it isn't all bad news and doomsday prophecies. This is because The Last Of Us has something none of the Uncharted games has - a day one release schedule. As far as I can remember, and going by the release dates of the digital versions of the Uncharted games, none of them were ever released as a digital title at the same time as the game's official release in stores. In fact, some of them didn't come to the Playstation store until years after the game's original release! Now, what does this tell us about Uncharted and The Last Of Us? While I can't be entirely sure, it would appear to show that the Uncharted games were never really intended to be downloaded online. They were just so big that it would turn potential buyers away. That is why they were put onto the store so long after release. Everyone that was planning on buying it already had bought it in stores. Anyone who bought it digitally was just icing on the cake. They called em' Gigabytes, Ellie. And there weren't never enough of em'. With The Last Of Us, however, they're going digital on day one. They expect people to be able to download it. In fact, they're probably counting on digital sales. This should hopefully mean that Naughty Dog has been successful at lowering the overall size of their highly anticipated game. But this could just be wishful thinking thanks to a terrifying little tidbit brought up in the post confirming The Last Of Us for getting a digital release. You can apparently play the game on your PS3 after only downloading half of it. Now I have no idea how this would work, and that part really doesn't matter. The fact that they're including it at all is what terrifies me so much. Why would it be necessary to allow people the ability to play the game while it is still downloading unless the download itself is going to be massive? It could just be a neat little gimmick thrown in to prepare us for what lies ahead for the Playstation 4's streaming service, but right now without a download size to look at, it has me shaking in my boots. How do you feel about all these games getting so much bigger than they were at the start of this generation? Does it even effect you at all? Why not sound off in the comments below? As always, thank you for reading.

    The Last of Us Gets Pushed Back to June 14th

    Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann has confirmed via the Playstation Blog today that the release of The Last of Us would be pushed back one month from its original launch to June 14th. Druckmann states that Naughty Dog came to realize just how massive the game was when it came down to the final phase of development and that the tough decision was made to delay it just a little bit longer to ensure that no corners would be cut and that every detail of the game was up to the developer's high standards. He also brings out that The Last of Us has the longest campaign that Naughty Dog has ever produced, and is easily the most ambitious of their games to date due to the fact that they had to create entirely new tech as well as a new universe, cast of characters, and brand new genre (he didn't quite expound on that last bit, so it remains a bit unclarified as to what he means by that). On the one hand, it's a little disappointing to see the long-awaited title delayed again, but then again, it's a short delay and I'm actually glad to see that they're not taking this lightly and that they have the support of Sony in giving them the extra development time to polish the game if they need it. Source: Playstation Blog Are you surprised that The Last of Us has been delayed again? Happy? Sad?
  7. Say it isn't so! The very recently announced Post Pandemic Edition for the hotly anticipated video game The Last Of Us has already been listed as out of stock on the Gamestop website. Considering the price its pretty surprising, isn't it? It might be hard to believe, but if you were to go to the Gamestop website right now in the hopes of preordering the game you would be met with a nice little grey "not available" button. Not all hope is lost yet though. There's always the chance it could go back into stock in the months leading up to the game's release, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that happening considering the similar Dead Or Alive 5 Gamestop Collector's Edition suffered the same preorder shortage as The Last of Us and never came back. If you want a chance at getting a copy of this seemingly rare collector's edition then there is only one option currently available to you, instore preordering. And even then that isn't a guarantee and those could be cut off at any time as well. If you're hoping to snag a copy then you might want to hurry up. You can view the out of stock Gamestop page below. The Last Of Us Post Pandemic Edition
  8. Looks like upcoming Naughty Dog game, The Last of Us, is not getting just one special edition, but two! Let's see what's included in these two different packages.

The Post-Pandemic Edition, which will retail for $160 and is GameStop-exclusive, comes with the following: Steelbook edition of the game 12" statue of Joel and Ellie Issue #1 of The Last of Us - American Dreams comic Sights & Sounds DLC Pack (game soundtrack, PS3 dynamic theme, PSN avatars: Winter Joel & Ellie) Survival DLC Pack (multiplayer bonuses: bonus XP, melee booster, in-game currency, customizable character items), bonus Joel and Ellie skins) Naughty Dog sticker sheet Get ready for The Last of Us when it comes out on May 7th!

    The Last of Us extended game play

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5E49FceDE7o I don't think this has been posted here yet. This is basically a longer version of the E3 game play. They show you some more character interaction and the combat sequence plays out a little differently this time. It looks pretty darn good.
  10. Do you live in Santa Monica, California, or are willing to drop everything you're doing and go to Santa Monica, California? If so then have I got the soul crushing offer of a lifetime for you! A recent posting on http://gamejobhunter.com from none other than Naughty Dog has revealed that the company is looking for people to test the highly anticipated Playstation exclusive, The Last Of Us. What does the "job of a lifetime" require exactly? Well, they aren't just letting anybody play the game early. Naughty Dog is looking for people with a very specific set of skills. You'll need the ability to... Find and report software issues Write issues into a database in a clear and concise manner Have strong writing and verbal communication skills Understand and execute detailed test plans with an eye for the smallest details Be a team player Play games for extended stretches of time without interruption Work overtime While that all sounds rather easy for the average gamer, the overtime is what will kill you. Game testing jobs are notorious for making people spend endless amounts of time in one area of the game doing the same thing over and over again. This can cause gamer fatigue and it'll end up making you hate your hobby. There's more things listed on the help wanted ad, but they aren't required to get the job. If you think you have what it takes, and you think risking your love of gaming is worth the chance of getting to play The Last Of Us months before anyone else then be my guest and follow the link below to Naughty Dog's help wanted ad. All of their contact information will be listed on the page. Good luck. EDIT: The job listing has been taken down, Naughty Dog has received more than enough applications for the job. Good luck to all of you who applied. http://www.gamejobhu...at-naughty-dog/
