    I cringed super hard at the E3 demo this year. Like, it was just bad. They relied entirely on shock factor for that, and still didn’t give us any sort of story beside the fact Ellie’s girlfriend is the type of person who likes to make a major scene with an overly drawn out kiss. That whole interactment just felt super predictable and cringey.

    Looked fine to me. Sure, it looked like more of the same, but I didn't see anything that looked like it was relying on shock value. Also, why do you need to know the story in advanced? Wouldn't you rather learn about the story when you play the game? It's Naughty Dog, they don't need to prove themselves at this point.

    So enemies will now cry out the names of their allies in horror if they watch you kill them, or emotionally react to found bodies.

    Same goes for the dogs, you kill a dog in front of its owner and they'll freeze in horror and disbelief, you kill the owner and the dog will nudge the body and whine not knowing what's wrong with it's owner.

    ND wants players to see the cost of vengeance that you inflict during the story and see how much is it worth.

    Even though I don’t plan on getting this game, I just can’t help but be impressed with its attention to detail.

    Makes me wish that every game could be like this.

    I just started a play through of the original (remastered version) for the first time since it originally came out for PS3. Still so good, and probably still the pinnacle of videogame storytelling.

    I'd love it if they finally introduced the mechanic where enemies can both run out of ammo and notice when you, the player, run out of ammo and charge at you that they scrapped in the first game.

    Hey, I know this thread is for the sequel, but does anyone know if a 9mm + shotgun only run of the original game is possible? IIRC, those are the only guns you obtain automatically through cutscenes and I like to do challenge runs, so I think a 9mm + shotgun only run would be interesting.

    I found that both of those weapons ran out of ammo if you went guns blazing. The 9mm had more ammo lying around, but the shotgun kind of ran dry in a couple of places in the middle.

    I’m sure it’s possible. There’s probably a pacifist run online that kills only when necessary.

    The Last of Us Part 2 New Screenshots Revealed - IGN

    Stinks that the game got delayed. These new screen shots look nice. One of them looks like it takes place during the first game. It looks like its the deleted ending where Joel teaches Ellie guitar. I bet it’s the opening to the game. I feel like the game will start with the teaching scene then maybe go into the first trailer scene.

    Not surprised given the current situation. I think it would be better if they saved it for a launch PS5 title.
