A new trailer for The Last of Us was revealed during Comic-Con on Friday, showing off a scene that introduces a new character, Bill.
This trailer shows just why Naughty Dog is at the top of the industry when it comes to storytelling. The interactions feel real and the dialogue is perfect. My anticipation for this title seems to continually go up after every trailer or bit of news. Check out the trailer below.
We know what the gamers like.
At least, we want to. With the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo just one week away, the anticipation has skyrocketed. In one week’s time, gamers around the world will be tuning in to get their first glimpses of the future of gaming in the upcoming years. The stages have already been set for the inevitable “Who will win E3?” debates and “This new technology will revolutionize gaming!” arguments.
I wish I had the inside scoop on what brand spanking new, as yet unannounced titles will be showcased at the “Big Three” panels this year, but sadly I’ve yet to so thoroughly infiltrate the industry’s mighty defenses. Perhaps next year, after I’ve finished my lessons with Snake. I have, however, compiled a list of the most likely games that will receive major attention this year.
And I’d like for you to vote on which one you most want to see!
We haven’t heard much about The Last of Us, that new post-apocalyptic joint from the people behind the Uncharted series, but today brings some new footage in the form of a trailer. I think what it does, beyond looking gosh darn interesting, is teach everyone who watches a very important lesson: You should be hesitant to trust people who are trying to convince you to pull-over. You should be especially hesitant in a world that’s falling to pieces and littered with people who’ve turned to crime and want to snatch your cookies, so to speak. Who knew?

In addition to the free DLC being released for Mass Effect 3 that day, PlayStation fans have another batch of new content coming their way for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception on April 10. Uncharted developer Naughty Dog announced that this new map pack will contain four new settings to add to the game’s multiplayer mode: Graveyard, Old Quarter, London Streets, and Oasis.

Little is known about Naughty Dog’s PS3-exclusive zombie-adventure game, The Last of Us. The announcement trailer showed the two protagonist, Joel and Ellie, scavenging through an old, dilapidated building in search of anything to help along their survival. And while the trailer – running on in-game assets and the engine – gave us a general idea of the environment, the characters, and the narrative, it delivered few specifics and wasn’t actually a cinematic set to be in the finished game (only for trailer purposes).
Well, Game Informer Magazine has posted three new in-game screens from their upcoming cover story of The Last of Us, set to grace the March issue. Below, you can find those screenshots, and just on the off chance you’ve never heard of The Last of Us, the announcement trailer, too.
The flood of HD collections, re-releases, and remakes continues, and Jak and Daxter are next in line.
A compilation of the first three installments in the PS2 series, the Jak and Daxter Collection is coming to the Playstation 3 in only a few weeks. Naughty Dog co-president Even Wells stopped by The Playstation Blog and announced the package will hit stores February 7th in North America and February 22nd in Europe. The bundle will cost $39.99 (NA) and €39.99 (EU).
The collection features 720p HD visuals and stereoscopic 3D functionality. And what would a Playstation HD collection be without trophies? Naughty Dog has added over 100+ trophies to collect across the three games included.
On January 17, Naughty Dog posted via their blog that their previously teased Flashback Map Pack #1 has been released and is available for $9.99 through the PlayStation Store. This map pack is available for free to players who purchased membership into the Fortune Hunters’ Club, which probably isn’t such a bad idea if you plan on purchasing most of the upcoming DLC. The club is available to players for $24.99 and includes all current and future DLC. But enough with all that. The map pack is highly nostalgic for players who romped about these maps in Uncharted 2, playing competitively or creating good memories with friends. I know I sure did and it was pretty awesome to go back and play on some of my favorite maps and seeing all the radical changes that Naughty Dog made. One of the most shocking maps to play on was the revamped Sanctuary map. Players can now see Aurora Borealis in the night sky and it certainly adds an eerie yet awe-inspiring atmosphere to the map.

After the surprise hit that was Drake’s Fortune, Naughty Dog no doubt rejoiced at their success but shortly after the celebrations ended it most likely became evident that gamers would expect to see much more of Nathan Drake and his misadventures. While the first title set a precedent, there were certainly areas in which the game could be improved and so Naughty Dog set out to “wow” their fans once again. The result of this endeavor was the 2009 sequel Among Thieves and despite the Uncharted series’ already existing momentum and acclaim at that time I don’t think anyone expected the experience which was delivered: one of near-perfection on almost every front.
Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series has swept the video game industry by storm in this current console generation. The first game of the series, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, was released soon after the PlayStation 3′s launch and was a major selling point for Sony’s new system. With Microsoft’s Xbox 360 having a year’s head start, Sony had their work cut out for them, and Drake’s Fortune helped ease the process. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which some may consider to be one of the best video game sequels of all time, was released in 2009 and it was met with huge commercial success. Naughty Dog was showered with awards left and right for Uncharted 2, to date receiving over 100 Game of the Year honors. This year’s threequel was no surprise when it was announced at the 2010 Spike VGAs. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception sold about as well as Among Thieves and it received many Game of the Year nominations, though very few wins. The formula seems to have hit a wall. Naughty Dog is going to need to change things up with Uncharted 4, and I’m here to share a few of my own opinions on what exactly those alterations could be.
