You know they are really cheap these days, you could also get tons of used games for fair price. Most of the games on PS3 are really good,unique and polished(I'm talking about exclusives).
I don't know what you consider cheap, but $200 used and $300 new is not cheap for a console nearing the end of its lifespan.

Well I got a PS3+2 controllers+8 games for $259 lol. I consider that cheap. Just look around.

Sometimes I think they should completely give up on giving ratings to games. It just doesn't work with audience like this.

What's wrong with an 8?


Nothings technically wrong with an 8. But when you have Gamespot giving COD a higher rating than the last of us, it's pretty funny. The review itself was horrible, and the people that raged about it lol. It was a funny insight. I honestly see this game as a masterpiece, like most reviewers gave it.

I just realized The Last of Us is rated R18+ in Australia. Omg, if they had passed the bill just a year later, Australia wouldn't have gotten The Last of Us...

And I'm so happy I turned 18 last month TT^TT

hell i still play wizardry though devleoped by Japanese now its still very western in its roots

but in my eyes SMT IV is game of the year


1)Why do you even bother posting? No one gives a shit about your elitist Japanizdabest statements. I see you doing this in almost every thread, you must be really bored or something >_>

2) While it's sure to be good, most people on this site haven't played SMTIV yet since most people on this site don't live in Japan and/or understand Japanese.

3))Don't be a buzzkill, this game looks great and people are excited for it, including me. kthxbai.


1 Thats is your interpretation
2 it wil come out this year ib the US and its not 2 years old like other games that are like it that get parise from around her [ since most people here dod not bgoin with a True SMT game thay wont feel like me abount this]

3 Sorry but like most Us Made games of late its Brown and Gray it may look nice but still Brown and Gray

Just a warning but the games ending is spoiled on youtube so I would stay away from the comment section.

Looks like a good game, but I wanna see how it compares to Uncharted. What things are similar and what makes it different.

So, has anyone beaten the game yet? Opinions?

I haven't actually beaten the game myself, only about 1/4th done I estimate but I watched my younger brother play most of it and reach the end.

I was a bit disappointed in how it ended, I was expecting a darker ending...

I've played a couple hours of the game and I have to say it is very well done, but like with most console exclusives I find myself fumbling with shooter mechanics on a console controller. It pisses me off to see a game that is such a good candidate for a pc port be limited to the shit graphical capabilities and terrible controls(lack of mouse and keyboard support) of a console.

Felt the same way about Uncharted's controls, really drains my will to play the game when the difficulty of getting a head shot is equivalent to getting a hole in one on a par 5.

australia still would have got it, it just would have been rated MA like it should be.
they really abuse the R rating now for games that are nowhere near R rated

god of was ascension
metro last light
the last of us.

none of these should be anything above MA. theyre only R for the sake of using that rating

Excuse me for not liking games that favor style over substance, I miss when games used to be games, like Mario, Castlevania, and Mega Man, not interactive movies that hold your hand the whole way through under the pretense of having some kind of profound story to tell, that could not be anymore generic and uninteresting.

So substance = gameplay in your eyes. Now I understand why you still in love with Ninty rehashes.

Finished the game Sunday/Monday. The story's execution was flawless, and it's gameplay was great and easy to get into. I can't wait to find out what the DLC is.. I can't wait for the single player DLC, and there are rumors of another DLC being Co-op.

I wish I had more friends that have a PS3, so I could discuss it with them..

The entire ending can be summed up as


ND stated that dlc and possible future instalments will not have Joel and Ellie as characters
"as far as those characters we are done" they said and that this story is complete.
I already fell in love with those characters so I feel sad having to cope with someone else in the future but well - they didn't fail so far so I will keep my faith in them.

Also - it was like the best prologue/opening sequence in the history of fiction.

At the start you can go easy, normal or hard difficulties (survivor unlocks once you finish the game once).
It took 11h 32m to complete the game on normal although I was so sucked in by the story that I rushed it. If you explore it will easily take you much more.
I am playing on survivor now and it's totally a different thing - it will take me at least 20h I suppose especially since I intend to do way more exploration than last time.

The Last of Us is basically just a rehashing of Uncharted, it's the same engine, with virtually the same combat, they just made the controls awkward and frustrating.

Really? This is exactly why they feels entirely different from each other, because TLOU is rehash. Sorry you still not grew up from platformer pants.

They barely feel different, the combat feels exactly the same, only clunkier, they just took Uncharted and gave Resident Evil's camera.

While I do admit TLOU has some similarities to Uncharted it is mainly in the way plot is told, the enjoyment I had to characters (which is incredibly high as in both cases I love almost the entire cast) and the general feel of being a member of an epic adventure.
I never had any issues with combbat in TLOU (maybe only on survivor cause it's hard as hell but it's not a bad thing) even though I kinda suck in these kinds of games so I would say it even felt better than uncharted for me privately.

Good half of UC mechanic is stealth? Do you lack ammo in UC? Do you can craft and upgrade weapons in UC? Okay, I give you one real thing they share, fucking boost up, that's about it. I hope you have no problem with understanding differences in atmosphere, because it'll be just stupid. Besides, clunky controls =/= my skills sucks, so yeah.

Just one question, why do you slamming your opinion? I mean, you didn't like it, that's ok, but why do you feel the need to convince us in your rightness?

Addressing a few things

Uncharted and TLOU are similar in gunplay, and little else. Uncharted is blatantly an rompy action adventure game. TLOU is a mature and brutal survival horror game. The entire feel the combat is completely different. If you try to play TLOU like Uncharted, you will die and die a lot. The melee is onyl similar in some of the button inputs. The stealth is only similar in that you can take people out from behind. There are so many more layers to TLOU with so many more systems, it forces you to be strategic.

The time of the game seems to generally vary from 12-18 hours, for those curious. 14-16 hours seems the norm. I've seen some people claim up to 26 hours, though,

For the ending...


As for the gunplay feel itself, I read a really interesting take on it on a another board. This person, who apparently lived in another country, recounted a time where they themselves found themselves in a gunfight. They said that the sort of fumbling and not precise gunplay of TLOU was almost spot on to how it actually felt being in a real scenario of a gunfight of those sorts.

Woah, I'm slamming my opinion? You're the one who attacked me for not liking it by making a snarky comment. Also, yes Uncharted does have a lot of emphasis on stealth, and lack of ammo doesn't change the gameplay, it just means enemies have lower drop rates, and no you can't upgrade weapons in Uncharted, but that again doesn't affect the core gameplay, and I prefer games without upgrade systems because they add a layer of tedium to the games that really just exist to make it feel longer, atmopshere also doesn't affect gameplay, and no clunky controls = clunky controls, unlike Naughty Dog's other games like Crash and Jak and Daxter, The Last of Us requires very little actual skill.

Be that as it may games should not strive for that level of realism because it's not fun, it's tedious and frustrating.
