    Well, if someone told you about The Last Jedi and how Luke essentially is not who he used to be and that he drank green milk he pumped out of an alien's nipple, in addition to all of the other fuckery going on with that film, would it make you want to watch it if you believed what that person told you?

    This reminds me, I still need to see The Last Jedi. And yes I would watch it. If I'm going to have an opinion on something, positive or negative, I need to experience it first hand. That goes for TLJ or the TLOU.

    R3make just cut too much for the sake of a shitty multiplayer game I can't imagine many are playing right now. R3make should have been a singleplayer-focused game with free updates (like, the Mercenaries gets added in later, because, given the game's development schedule, I wouldn't have been surprised if, had they remade the game and not cut out the "slower" parts and all of the things that make a Resident Evil game a Resident Evil game, that would have taken up all of the time to get it out the door in the timeframe that they did, even if I think they should have just made it a cross-generational release like a lot of PS3/PS4 or Xbox 360/XBOne games were at the launch of this generation). The fact that people think Mr. X is more of a threat than Nemesis (when I think they exaggerated the former as the only time you were fucked with him is if you were in a tight hallway which, given his loud footsteps, you have only yourself to blame if you get in that scenario) is hilarious given that I don't think many of them played the originals!

    OK, if you're saying this, then clearly, you haven't played the first game's expansion. Yeah, I know, I never did "play" the original, but I was one of those guys who, in 2014/2015, because he didn't have a job, watched the game's and its expansion's cutscenes, and honestly, if you're surprised by the characters being LGBTQIA+ at this point, the only thing I can say is that you should have been pissed off years ago.

    I survived the prequel trilogy. I think I'll be ok.

    I guess I shouldn't recommend The Danish Girl to you...

    so because you cant except people for who they are your going to miss a beautifully crafted game, bet your a horrible person in the real world if you cant play a game because of this, love how people go off on one saying how bad it is when they wont even play to find out for themselves. but they'll take time out of there pathetic life to criticise it. its like me saying how ugly you are without looking at you but hey if your right.....

    I have played the first game.But expansion? was there? I dont remember that being there...
    Anyway I have never seen LBTQ in a game. def not for main charachters in triple A game. It offends me. Because it goes against what a human is. It is a distortion of being human. And a poisonous belief that damages culture. This is the political agenda.

    Left Behind, Ellie kisses her female friend. This was six years ago.

    Sounds like you're just a homophobe if you think homoseuality is a distortion of humanity.. I really wonder how you cope in real life with LBGTQ people.

    I think it was called Left Behind or something like that. It was DLC for the PS3 version of the game, but included with the remaster on PS4. Ellie was lesbian with the girl in there.

    I accept that it is their view, of course. Im saying the charachter design/story and agenda is bad enough to make it so you don't buy it regardless of how good the game is. But I see it for what it is. You need to repel poison. And if it starts to infect my entertainment, ofc im not going to be happy about. Im sure the gameplay is good, but like I said you are setting a bad precedent if you just don't care. You are telling it's okay. To fk up our games with mind control bs. A philosophy that will poison the minds esp of younger people. It's a cult. And it is active in todays world so it is a bit different then lets say something that may have happend 50 years ago or something.
    Your mind is a safe haven, you might want to treat a little concern in what you absorb.

    I don't know why you all think boycotting this game was a good idea (because the boycott would've failed anyway).

    But let's say the boycott succeeded and the game doesn't hit sales expectations/is a failure. Who would've suffered more in the long term? The employees. Because it puts their jobs at risk & the higher ups will probably encourage crunching more than they already have to make up for the lost revenue.

    You think this will put a big dent in Naughty Dog & make them rethink what they're doing. But in reality, employees will either be laid off or treated even worse than they are already.

    It is always funny that people who claim or support to be for accepting and for equality are vicious to others with differing opinions about the movement.

    To be fair, some of the themes in TLOU2 are exaggerated to the point of being comical. A lot of the early gaffes revolve around Dina and just feel fake. I'm not going to post any spoilers, it's still a little early for that, but there are two scenes in Seattle that had me shake my head and think "Yes Neil Druckmann, we get it". I don't expect literary genius from a video game, but I also don't like it when the writing hammers a point as if the audience was stupid - it's a bad look.

    What employees? 70% of one of the departments working on the game had resigned by the time Druckmann was done, a lot of the original creators are not with the company anymore or have moved on to other projects.

    Edit: I tell a lie, this happened after Uncharted 4 crunch and immediately before The Last of Us 2 went into development "full steam", so to speak. With that said, the turnaround in the company is said to be around that mark - 70%.

    have you got a need to voice your opinion also, you could of stayed out of it aswel, just because you like the same sex doesn't mean your less of a human being, funny how people loved ellie but when they found out she swings both ways she's suddenly hated by millions...... its what is wrong with the world its full of hate and people who just cant accept the new norm

    I've yet to see a sensible and well articulated explanation anywhere on the internet on what is supposedly so bad about this game. Unless you have a problem with gay people or muscular women, having played 90% of the game (it just keeps going) I don't see what else could be objectionable.

    TLOU 2 is one of the most ambitious and impressive games I've ever played. Maybe the story didn't go quite the way I expected (even though I'm not quite sure what I expected) but the gameplay is extremely satisfying. The fights are so intense, especially against the human AI. The playfields you get to fight in are so well laid out - it reminds me of MGSV somewhat, with the many ways you're able to approach combat.

    As I said I haven't finished the game yet (I think I have 1-2 hours left) so I'm not quite sure what my final score would be but you're definitely doing yourself a disservice as a gamer if you don't at least give it a go (and the first one for that matter).

    I'll let you know if I agree when I get round to playing it :lol:

    Y'know what? When I finish I'll do a big thread detailing my thoughts on it. I like to think when I'm being serious, I offer some broadly decent analysis on games.

    I look forward to reading that. The game is a technical marvel and the gameplay is A-grade, even the story is alright for what it is, but it does have its... moments. :lol:
