Re: The Last of Us

is it worth having a holster for a 2nd pistol? surely withy ammo being limited in the game its pointless?

Re: The Last of Us

My PS3 is working again this morning.
I'd say it's worth using your resources for a second holster. I did it and as long as you have guns with two different types of ammo (I have the handgun and the revolver) he'll automatically switch to the gun in the second holster when the first one runs out of ammo.

I was wondering if that's what happens. I need to find another one of those work benches so I can make some upgrades.

Nearing end of game now and DAM


At this rate Last of Us could become my favourite Naughtydog game and one of my favourite games ever.

Re: The Last of Us

About how long would you say it is? I just recently got to Pittsburgh. I feel like there's no way I'm even close to the end.

You've still got a ways to go. I was already quite a ways past Pittsburg when I hit 56%. I played about 3 or 4 hours after that, but I didn't get a chance to see my percentage.
It shows you you're percentage when you select your save file.

Re: The Last of Us

I finished it late Saturday/ early Sunday. If you go to BONUSES on the pause menu and then STATISTICS, you'll see your total time played stat. My first playthrough was 19 hours. That was so much more than a game. Definitely more than a movie. It was an experience.

The sounds were superb. Things like the sounds of your footsteps when you run from a Clicker... The sound of a dog barking in the background.. The birds chirping... These things are so subtle, but it totally added to the immersion factor.

With the foreknowledge that Grand Theft Auto V will be out later this year, I'm going to stick my neck out and say that this will be 2013's Game if the Year.... Or at least a strong contender.

I'm about 9 hours into a new Game Plus mode. I can't get enough if this!!

Re: The Last of Us

I finished it this afternoon. That was a hell of an ending. Great in terms of character and story, but on moral grounds..... I honestly don't know what I would do in that situation.

Re: The Last of Us

I think I played too much the first day. I am not a gamer, by any means, so those 8 hours did me in. I'm playing in random 20-30 minute intervals now. Just fell down an elevator shaft. Things are dark and scary and monsters keep killing me.

Re: The Last of Us

Still plugging away. I just started "Spring" tonight. Powered through some infected monsters, and now I'm making my way through the hospital. This game really is incredible. I loved the giraffes in Salt Lake City. With humans mostly out of the way, the rest of the animal kingdom is taking back the world, and that's a really neat thing to see.

Anywho, I had to put the game down for the night, and I probably won't be able to play any more of it until Monday. I can tell I'm nearing the end, and it's really bumming me out. This game has been so fun. It's one of the only games I've ever played where I revel in the slow parts because I just enjoy walking around and taking in the scenery. The detail is incredible.

Re: The Last of Us

I started a Survivor play through and it is pretty bitchin'!

You get less supplies and your enemies seem to have eyes in the back of their heads. I managed to get as far as the College Campus, but I don't then k I can go any further. I have 2 shots in my Shorty, no health and in a room with 6 Clickers and a Bloater. I need to find more ammo somehow. I must be missing something. I missed about 5 shiv doors because I didn't have a frickin' shiv.

I'll probably start over.
