Hello, hello I am Darkness and welcome to The Last of Us. it’s the remastered version it is on the PS4, and I’ve been looking forward to this for quite some time. I’ve had set back after set back I think I tried to pop it in on two separate occasions and only saw the very beginning and if it tells you anything can’t even remember the very beginning Uhm, it has been making me nervous getting to this game because I figured I would When I first picked it up I figured man I’m going to play it on my own and then not look like I’m an amateur when I end up doing it. And I quickly I’m glad I did a quick Google search of like looking for a walk through or something like that and pretty much the first thing I found was don’t read the walkthrough just play the game the story is strong so let’s give immediately made me go “Uh” in this feeling in my stomach of. The anticipation of *extreme stuttering* about this game and. I guess I’m nervous. Because I of how much it is amped up for me of a good story line. And I’m doing on normal because I got nothing to prove and yeah how long ago. that was last year so I tried to pop in last year and I didn’t get to it so. All right All right I think it opens up with a movie but I can’t remember. I got Kleenex on standby if need be I’m gonna try to be a man try to be a man. But. Real men cry so I don’t I’m not too. I am not too worried about it. I know the game is sad and depressing, so I guess maybe my mood lately with everything that’s happened. Is more suited for this game now than it was before. So, I can just. Say what the fire flies with okay there we go. Wow that’s pretty Is that Troy what’s his face to the voice because I love his voice. Know that feeling of carrying. When I carry my son upstairs when he’s falling asleep. He’s not that old but it’s a… it’s a weird feeling. Oh I’m playing! Look how pretty this game is. Look at that. Hey, I used to have stars on my ceiling too. Look at that. Congratulations. You’re not a fossil yet. Dear dad, let’s see… you’re never around, you hate the music I’m into, you practically despise the movies I like, and yet somehow you still manage to be the best dad every year How do you do that? Happy Birthday pops! Love, Sarah. Don’t try to tug at me yet. Give me a moment. Can try the phone again. It’s more than dead it’s got that annoying something’s wrong sound to it Can I see anything. Nope. Wow I can just wander around the house. Admittance spikes at area hospitals. Mysterious infection. Yeah that’s your clue right there. I mean-. She certainly walks a little faster. Whoa. Right she’s moving a little faster now. Uh but it’s so pretty. I wish things were gonna go so terribly wrong real quick here. Contractor, knows how to build things. Awh. She sounds scared. I don’t know but I like your southern accent more than I usually like southern accents. Whoa. Hey there. Is there anything else I can touch. I like touching things in games. And I- I- I like putting my hands on things and fondling things. Woah. Shit and fan are meeting. And this isn’t the main girl from the cover art and everything so I-. Going to be home late tonight go ahead and order food. See you in the morning, Dad But he already came home. She’s in the same t-shirt this is the same day Whoa wow I didn’t expect that. Why is the tire swing swinging? Where the dog go? Why are things things? I think they’re rednecks. Holy shit. No I’m not. Holy shit. It was their farm. Whoa. Oh we’re right next to the hospital that’s the wrong place to be Holy shit Holy shit. What the hell I thought that was a semi auto before. Oh shit. Holy shit. I tried. We’re not doing a good job of getting out so far. I’m sorry if the commentary isn’t that good. I’m kinda transfixed. Oh god. Oh guy. get off get off get off. I’m coming. We don’t have a choice *manly groaning* Whoa. How do I run faster? What Holy shit. Summer of when. Holy shit 20 years later. This story is complex Wow that is a battle hardened. Sound of that voice says. Doesn’t sound like this world get any easier over 20 years The last book my brother was reading. The last book my brother was reading was uhm Zombies a journal of blah blah blah the year of infection and I think is kind of cool now that I’m reading it that ah It kind of explains in a different light of it doesn’t last forever. Oh sound so real. So pretty. She was leaning up against that waiting on me instead of just standing around like normal NPCs that’s that is weird I am the definition of cool. Oh am I supposed to go first she didn’t she didn’t specify Yay. A quick turn. How do I do that health kit bind your wounds with the health kit using a healthcare takes time. Make sure you’re in a safe place. Equip the health kit with up then hold R2 to start binding. I can’t do the quick turn now. And he just goes back to normal Moving. The books all kind of fell and the bottle fell over. That’s kinda cool. That’s cool. Alright. Well this would be ah never mind Yeah go Let me compose myself real quick giving, once again be right back. I’ll be right back. Alright so. Whoa. I uh there we go. I had to take a break. The game got a bit real for me. And See I even my hair’s different. Because I went ahead and. Cut it back down. To make the. To make the Mohawk. Pop back out. I did in the game got me upset and. I had to step away for a few I’m sorry I’m- Now I have a flashlight There we go, that’s how to turn that on. Am I from Texas is that why she just called me that. Getting to it. Don’t quite know where you want me to boost you. Oh okay that’s how that works. Aim toward where I’ve already said before that every 30 minutes my my recording will start to desync voice but it just so happened that when I saw the 30 minute mark I just I needed to take a break. Alright wait a sec. I always get suspicious when it turns you one way and there’s a way to some how you can go another I always think there might be something. That’s how he punches. Okay. Well it’s pretty. It is that is pretty cool and it’s pretty. I think I’m probably glad that I’m playing this version instead of, it’s got to be around here, instead of the original. There it is. because it’s just so pretty. I don’t think I need the tutorial this game is uh giving me some baby steps here. They’ve been partners for a while this is not their first rodeo by far and this is definitely a world where there are safe zones. And I’m guessing. They were talking about people going out at night sneaking out sneaking off. Ooo. Firefly pendant. What is this about? Oh. Shoot. Right. My own watch is starting to itch my wrist. So I’m guessing whatever the it causes the infection is pretty well known look at the little detail here where it’s like it’s their room and it’s their hand prints. And I can say it’s detail or a part of me like or like the mark of like Hey we snuck away and we went somewhere. Alison blah blah blah. Bills in bed. Shoot first. Shut the fuck up asshole. The level of detail is pretty awesome. Burned the infection don’t shoot, don’t head south. Unless that’s just like all the hand prints of people like let us out which is not as cool. I feel like So they’re runners. Not necessarily gun runners but they’re runners. Spores! So this is a fungal infection Fungal infection that’s interesting. So eventually the spores just finish overtaking and they sprout and it started affecting other people. Is that what’s going on. I can’t see right. Why they blocking my view right I hate when they do that. Is this how it’s gonna be? Really game So this game is so the the fungal the infection is fungal. The spores being able pop up it would make sense why if it broke out in a major city that being able to transmit via air. Would be a very fast way to make sure that the populace was all contaminated Now the other thing that does it doesn’t make as much sense is a fact of you know if it is transmitted by air. There are ways to block things like that they’re wearing one of them gas- gas filtration. Mask that filter the air. But that’s not the only way. You would think. Oh shit. Wow it pauses on me. Hold R1 to focus Joel’s hearing. What is he Superman? Holy shit. Can I grab him? Strangle strangle. So the infected are literally living host to this this is not a normal zombie thing. They are they’re still living human beings are the bodies are at least living. To be To be a host to the to this fungal infection. What then drives them to want to eat? Let let me let me ask my side kick here what I should be doing. Hey, got any advice for me. How about other games like I just finished playing The Evil Within. How about a game where I get a bottle or something to throw, something like that for me or are they just. Are they doing their thing and I can just go by? All right they’re just doing their thing I can go by. My health is full well at least I’m doing that well. Anything else near. All right so apparently I can hear forever. I’m gonna keep crouching I know you’re running up into places and doing stuff but ah. You just let me take care of the thinking part like crouching. Right. Why did tell me to shake my. Oh is this a rechargeable flashlight. Press that to attack what. Why would I want to attack. Well if it’s just single ones I I don’t Well I don’t need a mask if it’s just them come on back down here and get my little health bar and shut up gotta get this. All right so Joel has been boxing lately. So he doesn’t have to worry about ammo. Anything over here. anything shiny anything that I can get. Anything at all. I’d hate to miss something simply because I was being lazy. because this game really does seem like a mix between exploration and story so. Note to brother. All right. Hey brother we were so close. I’m sitting outside the walls knowing I’ll never see the inside of the zone. While waiting for the smugglers show up, we heard a squad of soldiers approaching. In our panic we ducked into this building in hopes of hiding from them. None of us noticed the spores until it was too late. We’re all infected we have a few hours maybe a day at most. I hope the smuggler is still coming so at least I can pass this note to you. I should’ve listen to you and come to the zone with you when I had a chance. Now it’s too late. Take care, Mark. Oh. So there are people not let allowed in this zone so. What’s the what’s the criteria for being able to live on the inside and why is it so segregated in and out? Why are- why would you have patrols on the outside. Making sure people don’t get in. Like soldiers the This is so cool look how pretty this game is. Need me to boost you up or help? All right. Of course, I got to look down here. Things appear as a little circle so I don’t think I have to run as close as I was thinking I would. Why did it just give me a hint. I knew this one. I knew how to get up there. Alright. Alright gotta go get a plank. She’s into planking. Too bad we don’t have our digital cameras. Okay I’m just looking around guys by the way so. and the commentary is hard to say anything other than everything’s pretty and blah blah blah because I’m glad I have surround sound headphones except for right now when her voice just came from everywhere. Okay. That might have moved a little bit by magic. But. It’s just a got me off on just a sad note. that it’s hard for me to really think straight right now. I’m just kind of taking it in. Because with my brother passing it was and having to go through all of that and seeing him like that that was a. How do I get back up now okay yeah but give me a second lady I gotta get back up. Was watching him pass just not too long ago. It was hard to see the same emotions come from Joel that I just saw come from my mom over my brother. Literally my mom over my brother saying the exact same things. so this one’s gonna tug at my heart strings. Yeah you say that, but everything there’s foliage and there’s trash and stuff. It just looks so nice I like how they toggle crouching also because I feel like this is a game where I’m gonna have to sneak around. The first thing it tells me is that ammo is low. And making shots count, and then introduces me to a to the fact that I can actually beat the shit out of some of these guys. Going all fisticuffs. So. I I really do feel like. Like it’s actually giving me mechanics I’m gonna need to use and be a pain in the ass actually just hold something down to crouch so yes toggling. Toggling is the best. Also, I don’t know what ammo you’re talking about also there’s a boy right there. Also, here’s the ammo. Just kidding didn’t want to climb up on it. Man, that chair is a bright color fuchsia. Huh. Well that’s how they put it okay. Wow Uhm Uh Why? Wow who is Tess. And why isn’t Joel more well-known blah blah blah I feel like I feel like I need to explore every inch of this place because it all feels like is pertinent somehow. What is he even sharpening. I guess it’s a machete and a brick. It looks like he sharpening it with. Note. Drafting notice. Civilian service system the general of the Boston Quarantine Zone. To Fuck This!

Get the angle. Ohh Did I get him? Oh. Whoa. Tess, they’re still alive. Holy shit. Dude die. That does it. Gotcha. Alright. It’s three guys I’ll boost you. Getting used to this. The dialogue feels so natural too and that is a rare thing to find a game like this with the dialogue just feels like it’s happening. Between I mean… you know what I mean. Where dialogue just doesn’t seem natural in a lot of games it just feels very forced and scripted Ah shit. Okay So is she gonna do that? I’m going I’m trying to get to him He’s walking fast. I’ll just pretend I knocked him out. Whoa. Alright so she’s got that guy They’re just human beings. uhh That’s going to make me hurt inside. Okay so they weren’t gonna be that from that position.
