For a shorter, equally brutal experience

Why I love The Last of Us multiplayer, in a nutshell


The intoxicating rush of everything hanging in the balance
Nov 26
 
We're outnumbered, down to our last pair of lives. The clock is ticking, it's as much of a threat to my team's survival as the four armed men bearing down on our position. I don't like our chances, not one bit, but moments like this, they're the reason I play the game.

Cordycep snap: Last of Us PS4 photo mode detailed


I like this trend
Jul 25
 
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.
