The Last of Us Part 2

Recommended Posts

Someone please tell me that the 'shake controller to make the torch work' thing has been dropped. I was playing the remaster last night and clocked myself  right in the balls when my torch cut out. Hurt like all hell...

 

Also, that type of controller usage is, and always, has been a bit shit. See also rotating the stick to simulate turning cogs/wheels/etc...

The setup options on start-up has a UK English variant for text language. That's impressive.

 

The degree of customisation is incredible, particularly for those with a disability. My daughter only has use of her left hand and just recently played through Uncharted 4 (I helped out with a few of the bigger gun fights). It was doable but required remapping buttons at the system level and then changing control schemes depending if she was driving or walking - so a bit of a pain to say the least. Delighted to see there's just a left hand only option in this - although I think there's too much violence for her taste.

Don't Amazon use their own logistics team? I've not had anything from Amazon arrive through Royal Mail for ages.

It had Royal Mail tracking.

It's still there. Maybe you can get rid of it in the options - there's a lot of accessibility/customisation.

Why? I have finished the game two times now so please free to elaborate in spoilers of course. I’m very interested into what other people think about the risks it takes.

 

Don;t want to get into spoilers so early. Too easy for someone to accidentally see them. Essentially I feel like that characters are completely different people to TLOU, and not in a logical way.

I shall just need to be more careful!

 

But, if it is removable then that would be great as it is such a stupid mechanism.

But that's just me. The aesthetics and controls are well impressive.

No spoilers but the name of that VHS porn tape had me lolling.

I feel it’s the exact opposite actually. It will be interesting when we make the spoiler thread.

The most interesting things to me about this game are the difficulty and accessibility options. It sounds like Naughty Dog really went the extra mile in making a game that anyone can play, no matter the circumstances, and that's something other devs should really be learning from.

I just started creating one, but then decided against it.  It's too easy to have the game ruined, and at this stage everything would need to be in spoiler tags anyway.

 

Happy for somebody else to do it, but I won't be reading just yet.  Just going to have to bite my lip about *REDACTED* and *REDACTED*.  And that's only the first few hours!

 

Fucking hell.  This is brutal.

I think the Royal Fail has let me down on this, kind of expected though i guess. Annoyingly my brother has his copy from Amazon - must keep out of his way..

Maybe it’s too early. I doubt many people will finish it in one day.

I should have just bought the bastard digitally. I will if it hadn’t arrived by this evening. I still have weird worries about downloading large files. How large is it?

This is my feeling (after 2 hours I played last night)

My Pro is being fantastically well behaved today.

 

No huge wind up of the fan at all. 

 

Still turned up the volume though. Can't stand "Pappy's Flatshare" or whatever "comedy" is emanating from the next room.

Same, my Pro is pretty quiet and am a couple of hours in.

3D audio on platinums confirmed @Harsin

 


Cheers.

 

Been playing it with them this morning using the Uncharted 4 profile, sounds real nice and really noticed it in a section where you have to find someone in an environment where you have to find someone when you can’t see much.

 

Bit mad they didn’t make a LoU2 profile, even if they just copy and pasted the Uncharted one with a new thumbnail and sent Eurogamer a press release. They're trying flog 3D audio as big USP of the PS5 and have a flagship game that uses it. It's perfect synergy to flog the game, the PS5 and Sony headsets.

 

But then common sense and Sony have an on/off relationship.

Yeah I used the uncharted 4  profile too . Not sure how much difference it makes with various profiles anyway . But the audio sounds great regardless. .annoying there isn’t a dedicated one though. .

#TheLastofUsPartII absolutely supports 3D audio with the platinum headset. Unfortunately we were not able to make a custom profile. That being said the uncharted 4 profile will serve you quite well.

Been waiting for delivery on this one for a while. Ordered it at the same time as GT Sport...

 

lou.gif.cea08eceee04afeabb83ea2a4ede3d50.gif

 

Order update:

 

I've just worked a 65 hour week including weekend work. Finally, today is a day off. And it's TLOU2 day, amazing.

 

I'm asleep. A knock at the door, delivery guy! I hear my girlfriend ask the guy to leave it outside the door. I jump up excited. I know what it is. 

 

I open the door. It's a hoover. For flat 404. I'm 401. Sigh. I do the good neighbourly thing and drop it off. 

 

3 hours pass. Amazon delivery guy is in my street woooo hoooo! Why is he taking over an hour? C'mon man.

 

Ok great here is the delivered notification. It's in the mailbox. Great.

 

I go down, no it's not. We are in 401. I can see a suspicious amazon shaped package 98% pushed through the slot in the mailbox for 801. I bet thats it. I try to pull it backwards a bit. Aaaaaand it drops in. Open the slot, shine my torch. Yep it's my package. Pop up to 801, yep, they are not in. 

 

TLDR: :hmm:
