LastofUS

When we play games we rarely put too much thought into the environment and non interactive parts of the environment but we surely notice when it’s not up to scratch. But have you ever thought how much effort is put into such things?

Well Naughty Dog has released a video showcasing some of the environments you are going to experience in The Last of Us along with some insight on how they are created and how much effort goes into putting that cupboard in the corner of the room that you hardly even notice.

The thing that really stuck with me after this video is firstly how amazingly talented these people are… and the lighting. Man that lighting is sexy.

The Last of Us is coming to PlayStation 3 around the 14th of June, E3 week…

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

    GOTY

    1= GTAV
    2= The Last of Us
    3= Bioshock 3
    4= Tomb Raider
    5= COD 21 :P

    Sorted now go buy your PS3s because Microsoft dont give a shit. DEAL WITH IT.

    • Deon Steyn

      ROFL apparently Adam Orth linked account disappeared and his twitter account is not public anymore. Clearly he couldn’t DEAL WITH IT anymore.

      • OVG

        I have a feeling that after this backlash Microsoft are hiring PR for a major backlash on their console reveal. They say no news is bad news? well this shit has cemented the negative snowball effect. Its all down hill from here the same way I spent all my PS3 saving on an xbox because of all the bullshit that was coming out of SONYs asshole back in 2006.

        Its failed already.

        • FoxOneZA

          Nothing stops Sony from going always-online later on in the next generation. They went on and removed copying videos to the hard drive, installing of Linux, and installation of games.

          Look at both sides of the fence I’d say.

          • Deon Steyn

            To be honest it was mostly to curb piracy that made them stop installing of Linux. I can’t understand the videos though

          • FoxOneZA

            The video thing could have been to curb piracy and increase Bloo Ray sales.

          • Anon

            I don’t get it, I still copy videos to my PS3? My series, movies and MP3s are all on my PS?

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Seriously, who used PSlinux? Only geosod and hackers. It was a cool idea from SONY to allow the masses some freedom with the console, but as always, give them a pinky and they take your arm, shit in your lunchbox, and kill your dog.

          • FoxOneZA

            The PC crowd handled always on pretty well ;)

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Say what now?

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            lol

          • FoxOneZA

            XD

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        He was DEALT with pretty quickly… lol!

        • Deon Steyn

          He’s a coward!

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Indeed!

          • Deon Steyn

            ROFL Classic!

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Instameme. Just add Orth

      • Rincethis: Spellalicious

        Haha, he’s a tosser, and a noob, and he should feel bad. Man, I was at level Asura Rage last week with that guy…

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      I’d like to deal with it…. :(

    • Deon Steyn

      I wonder if EA and MS knows about these websites and the fact that their consumers that they need to make money of watches all the shows and are informed and educated of all the bullshit being served up as the future of gaming and entertainment.

    • Skyblue

      Just a few points:

      GTA V – big fan of all things GTA but have always hated the console controls and they haven’t gotten any better over the last decade and now I have a decision to make, play it on a console or hope that that they do the delayed release thing for PC. Either way, GTA FTW!

      The Last of Us – we shall see

      Bioshock Infinite – enjoying it and all (still on 1st playthrough – PC), just feels a bit “samey” with crappier plasmids compared to Bioshock 1. Also the characters in Bio 1 were far more compelling and I preferred the darker tone of the 1st game. Alot of Bio 3 feels rehashed, imo.

      About time Irrational and Take 2 approached EA proper about getting that System Shock 2 license. EA desperately need some love from gamer’s and they don’t have a developer anywhere near the caliber of Irrational so that would be a step in the right direction. EA you hear? Give Irrational back their title and me no hate you no more!

      Tomb Raider – pleasantly surprised but still lacked that wow factor of exploring from the first 2 games in the series… I have been around a while.

      COD 21 – nice!

      I think Bioshock will prob edge out GTA V for game of the year.

    Was the game delayed? … hmm seem to be out of date with ma gaming news

  • Deon Steyn

    Awesome, by then I can trade Bioshock in for this, because I simply don’t care about season passes or DLC anymore. Mainly because:

    1.There are too many games I still need to play that I don’t get to.
    2.Season pass is R170
    3.I should get minimum R200 for it at BT games
    4.That’s saving R370 on Last of Us. Rinse and repeat until Saints Row 4 comes out etc.

    My body is ready. Thank you Naughty Gods and thank you Sony.

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Wonder what our CoDtroll thinks of this

    • OVG

      Not enough ammo lying about in post Apocalypto, counting ammo? DAFUQ?
      just pray and spray :p

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Kid’s probably in school or Gavin will unleash his trolling a little later. I’m convinced it’s Gav. Unless I see proof otherwise, I’m just going to assume that FoxhuntR is Mr Mannion having fun.

      • FoxOneZA

        There can only be ONE… Fox!!!!

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        I have my suspects. But I believe its either you, Rince, OVG or Gav as you believe. Unless you are deliberately trying to distract me from you.
        *keeps a watchful eye*

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Me? lol, I really wish I had thought about it, but sadly… I can’t take credit for FoxRuntR. I wasn’t online yesterday, internet was down at work, and I had spotty internet last night. Geoff should be able to vouch for me, because I’m usually on skype during the day.

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

            :P

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Your alibi seems too good to be true. We are on to you

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            LOL!! Guys, I’ve trolled LG in the past, but I think by now, it should be clear that my trolling is a lot more suave and distinctly banana-shaped.

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            But, last night when I read through the comments, I honestly thought, “Nah.. this is Erwin”,I also have my suspect list, with Gavin on top, then you (Erwinning), the brothers of Trolling (OVG and Rincethis) and even Llew.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            But seriously though, I wish I had thought of it first though… :/ but there’s also the chance that the kid is indeed genuine, just a young child, posting stuff, not really understanding what he’s doing wrong, and that’s actually kind of sad.

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Beyond sad

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            even more so that he thinks COD is awesome… now that’s tragic… :/

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Will never be me. My list is as follow:

            1. You
            2. Rince
            3. OVG
            4. LC (you never know)
            5. Anrey, although I’m sceptical of that one

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            The lady doth protest too much… ERWIN!! I’m on to you.

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            See? SEE? Posting lots and lots of pictawrs, absence yesterday, trolling upon trolling with multiple persona….ITS THE BANANAAAAA

          • Rincethis: Microsoft President

            How DARE you put me above OVG, I knows how to spella!

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            But your name says MS President. Are you sure you know how to spella?

            #FriendlyBanter

          • Rincethis: Spellalicious

            Betta?

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            What’s in Beta now?

          • Rincethis: Spellalicious

            Batta?

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Really? Me? Hahahaha. Thank you that you believe me capable of such things but alas. It is not I

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Ok let’s rethink this, who has the most to gain from this? I doubt it’s Geoff although you never know with that guy.

            Brenda? He’s currently entertaining strippers while wearing a batgirl outfit,

            Yolanda? I haven’t seen her troll at all (maybe… but I doubt it).

            Gavin… I’m leaning towards the boss, but on the other hand, I think his plea was genuine, and much like the rest of us, he wouldn’t want this community to turn toxic.

            That only leaves the usual bunch of commentators (i.e. the usual suspects). I’d wager a guess it’s one of the loudest voices on the “plea post” from Friday. (Banana Jim, Private EYE)

          • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

            That trolling by Foxhunt was way too low level by anybody’s standard

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Yeah, you’re right, which kind of makes me think that the other Fox is really a tween…

        • FoxOneZA

          The Troll’s work is done here. It’s got the tribe turning against one and another.

          • Admiral Chief Erwin

            Hmmm, could be you I think…..Fox and Fox………
            TAR AND FEATHERS!

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            Hehehe

          • FoxOneZA

            He’s in your braaaaaaiiiin!

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Divide and conquer… :/ #shakesfist

    • Rincethis: Microsoft President

      Hey, it wasn’t ME!

  • OVG

    Microsoft, do you know that your silence is going to kill your Brand. Hire some people who know how to market your product.

    SONY is going to own your ass this year. PS3 exclusives and positive PS4 news.

    P.S. (no pun intended) E3 will be to late to try and gain traction on the hype train, any fool can tell you that… or are you all shiting your pants about moving the console reveal back a year while you remove all the DRM insides? :p

    • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

      COD ghost will be revealed at the MS conference and as such people will lose their mind and support MS 100% …. I wonder what new games we will see at MS conference though. blue dragon 2!!??

    • Rincethis: Microsoft President

      As the President of Microsoft, I must argue with you. Don’t you know that your electricity also goes off, so, don’t buy a vacuum cleaner (not that you know how to use one), as it may not work, sometimes…

      • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

        You forgot to say “Deal with it”

        • Rincethis: Spellalicious

          DEAL WITH IT hehehehe

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    I feel like this, :-

    • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

      meh?

    • Deon Steyn

      Ag don’t be sad, I don’t get to play SimCity on my PS3 ;-)

    • Snormossel

      Dem feels…

  • Trevor Davies

    That is a good looking game

  • Skyblue

    Looks fantastic but I think Crysis 3 was spectacular and that’s not even up for a debate.

  • Tbone187

    Nice behinds the scenes look into the artistic process…I like…
