Free for all: The Last of Us documentary now on YouTube

I felt bad about talking up Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us upon its free release in the US since many of you weren't able to access the documentary. Well, now you can! Naughty Dog and Area 5 have uploaded the movie in its entirety to YouTube. Again, you should watch it -- after you've beaten the game. Great insight into large-scale game development.

Chances of a Last of Us sequel: '50/50'

I love The Last of Us. I also don't think it needs a sequel. When asked about a sequel in a Reddit AUA, Last of Us Creative Director Neil Druckmann said "right now I'd say it's 50/50." I'm team 50. That is, the 50 that r...

The Last of Us making-of documentary free on Amazon
by Jordan Devore

Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us is a documentary produced by Area 5 and if you have cleared the game's story mode already, it's definitely one for the to-watch list. Better yet, it's actually free on Amazon in the US right now, either to rent or own.

According to Naughty Dog, Grounded will be up on the PlayStation YouTube channel "very soon" for everyone outside of the US in addition to possibly coming to more venues later on.

I watched about half of the movie last night and as ever, I was left baffled at the sheer time, energy, and devotion that goes into making these monstrous games. It's scary.

Naughty Dog considering new IP, The Last of Us sequel

Writers Guild of America gives award to The Last of Us

It's no secret that Naughty Dog's The Last of Us has taken home a lot of proverbial hardware this year. It can add one more trophy to the case, as Neil Druckmann, the game's writer, won the 2014 Writers Guild of America'...

Bloody Valentine: Last of Us DLC coming February 14 photo
Bloody Valentine: Last of Us DLC coming February 14
by Steven Hansen

You don't have plans on Valentine's Day, right? Are you feeling...left behind? Don't worry. It's just some corporate call to arms that guilts you into spending way too much money on seasonal garbage. Why go out to dinner in elbow-to-elbow crowds with 45-minute wait times when you could stay home and play videogames?

The Last of Us is getting prequel DLC, Left Behind, that focuses on Ellie and her friend Riley. It's going to be $15 and, according to Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann, it'll be out on February 14. Spend your Friday night indoors, why don't you.

Also, apparently you can buy an American flag hat for a dollar, presumably for use in the multiplayer. Ew.

As Dtoid's Game of the Year for 2013, The Last of Us is a title that hit all the right notes for players, and will likely go down as one of the most memorable games of the last generation. It was earnest, brutal, and uncompro...

New Uncharted announced for PlayStation 4
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Tonight during the PlayStation All Access launch event on Spike, developer Naughty Dog revealed that they're working on a new entry to the Uncharted franchise for the PlayStation 4.

No more details were given beyond that. The teaser trailer showed off a map, a voiceover of someone looking for revenge, and simply the name Uncharted. Is it a prequel? A sequel? A whole new storyline that has nothing to do with Nathan Drake?

Naughty Dog wouldn't say but they did tease that there are clues hidden in the trailer.
