We Can Be All Poetic And Just Lose Our Minds Together
So The last of US: Remastered is out. Just in case you couldn't tell by the fact that the Last of Us is being hosted 3 times tonight at various times. Obviously this is interesting because I think it's the first time in the handful of years I've been assisting with the Playstation Friday Night Fights that one game has been hosted more so much. I think it's pretty kick ass because I love it and want to see more people playing it. It's still going to be a bit before I can jump on the Playstation 4 Bandwagon but it's still awesome.
My only problem with The Last of Us, and really this is an issue with Druckmann, but according to some Neogaf users and attendees of the recent One Night Live staged reading of the story, apparently there's a "alternate" ending that takes place about 4 years after the story ends involving our heroes from the story. On its face, not a big deal, whatever, unreleased story content happens all the time. But as I understand it they played it after the show and beforehand announced it would never be released anywhere and they requested that attendees not record it. Want to know what I have to say about that?
Fuck you Druckmann. Fuck you for releasing a brilliant story, teasing that there's more to the story and releasing it to at most a few hundred people. Fuck you and fuck whatever inspired you to do that. It costs you literally nothing to release that and just feels shitty. I know you'll never see this but what the hell would make you think this is a thing worth doing?
Druckmann later tried to clarify saying that it was just for that evening, that it wasn't meant to be part of the game, and gave us some further details, but still, what's the purpose of adding something like that if you didn't think it was worth adding such that you would later go online to say "wait, wait, it's not that big of a deal guys?"
Sometimes I hate the creatives behind games today. /rant
Now go play some Last of Us, it's fucking brilliant.
Welcome to the Playstation side of Friday Night Fights! Every Friday, members of the community get together online to play games and all you need to join is a user account. Down below, you'll find a list of games that we'll play tonight along with the times they'll start, the people that you should hit up for invites, and any other information that you may need.
If you want to play, leave a comment with the games from the schedule you want to play and your PSN name. You should also send a PSN friend request to the host and mention your username here in the message so they know you're one of the cool people and not just some random friend request.
If your favorite game isn't on the schedule, host it yourself! You just need to give us the game, start time, and your PSN name so people know what, when and who. It's also wise to list DLC requirements, game or server names, and anything else people might need to join just so you don't need to message it to everyone individually. Last minute additions in the comments here are fine, but games can also be added earlier in the week by visiting the forums and finding the thread with the coming Friday's date. Adding a game there ensures it's on the blog from the moment it goes up.
All times Eastern.

Host = European. Also, expect a real goddamn mic, bad english and probably some goofy noob mistakes by me, and you'll have fun. I plan to host at least for four hours, hopefully more.
