Sony: Last of Us actually deserves its GOTY Edition

Just like every other game these days, The Last of Us is getting a Game of the Year edition. However, unlike some other games, Naughty Dog's latest probably deserves one, Sony argues. "With over 250 Game of the Year...

Naughty Dog has been working to address issues with long wait times in The Last of Us' multiplayer matchmaking and while progress has been made on that front, there's more left to do.

"Over the last two weeks, we've discovered that the most significant improvements may come from working with other teams at PlayStation to make updates to some of the existing matchmaking libraries," the studio wrote. As such, it's hard for the teams to nail down a time frame but we're likely looking at a matter of weeks, not months, until the necessary fixes are deployed.

With that mess still ongoing, Naughty Dog has decided that its next pair of maps for Factions will be released for free on PlayStation 3 and PS4. Not all bad news!

Free maps! And about those pesky matchmaking times… [Naughty Dog]

The Last of Us: Remastered shoots to the top of the UK sales charts

How to stop sucking at The Last of Us multiplayer photo
How to stop sucking at The Last of Us multiplayer
by Kyle MacGregor

Have you played The Last of Us yet? Maybe, maybe not. You probably should, though. It's really a lovely game. And it's now on PS4, which means there's an actual reason to use that thing as something other than a Netflix delivery service. 

Once you pop that disc in, the first thing you'll probably want to do is check out the campaign and those shiny new graphics. Maybe then you'll move on to the Left Behind prologue chapter. It's nice too. At some point, though, you'll definitely want to check out the title's best kept secret -- the multiplayer. Yes, the thing referenced in this article's headline. It's the wonderful caramel and nougat center to this delicious chocolate bar.

I almost made the mistake of assuming it was tack-on. I almost wish I did. The disc has scarcely left my PS3 over the last year because of it. I've spent a lot of time with the multiplayer. More than I'm proud of, really. And in that time I've noticed some things -- things that might help players suck less. And because I'm such a saint, I figured I'd share the fruits of my obsession with you, dear reader.

These things are the worst. Don't do these things.

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament.

Can you tell the difference between Last of Us PS3 and PS4?

I can't. Okay, okay, there's definitely some extra clarity in the brickwork and people look a bit more yellow than pink.

Cordycep snap: Last of Us PS4 photo mode detailed

I already wrote about how much I loved the idea behind inFamous: Second Son's photo mode and I'm glad to see the trend continuing, even if it's an obvious marketing thing. Taking cool pictures is fun. Plus, in that article I made a great Ansel Adams Family joke. This video explains how to go about snapping shots in The Last of Us' PS4 remaster.
