Holy Bleep Man I Dont Think Ive
ever seen a game surrounded by so much controversy saddled with so many expectations and released into such a contentious environment depending on who you talk to the last of us. Part two is either a mature, thoughtful and bold artistic endeavor that expands the boundaries of video game storytelling or a self–indulgent and disrespectful vanity project that dishonors its predecessor and aggressively pushes social justice talking points at the expense of its plots and characters. The irony though is that both of those things are kind of true, which kind of makes a tough nut to crack as a reviewer. I mean mainstream video game journalists basically consider it the greatest game ever made, but their opinions are worth about as much as the geopolitical views of your average dumb as bleep Hollywood celebrity likewise to the people that have spent so. And effort bleep all over this game without even having the decency to play the bleep thing well.
I Have All The Way Through
from beginning to end Yeah. My liver is even more bleep than usual, but at least I’m in a position to offer what I hope is a fair balanced assessment of this game so grab your three wood let’s tee this one off and I’ll see you at the 19th hole gentlemen last of us two picks up several years after the events of the first game. Ellie is now a young woman living with Joel in the fortified town of Jackson, where life is generally good and the people are compassionate and prosperous. They even give out bigot sandwiches what you got there bigot sandwiches that is real that is a line which is in this game anyway. Ellie’s relationship with Joe is kind of.
Strained For Reasons That Are Gradually Revealed
through a series of flashbacks. Ellie’s also gay by the way just in case you missed the subtle hints. In the trailer, she’s about to start a relationship with a bisexual Jewish woman named Dina after Dina broke up with her previous boyfriend Jesse, who’s still friends with Ellie, but pretends to be jealous about the new relationship, but then later Dina discovers she’s pregnant by him and Ah bleep off game. I feel like i’m watching some cheap soap opera with all these contrived love triangles teen angst and boring interpersonal dramas. I don’t know any of these people and i certainly don’t care about their relationship.
The original game opened with the protagonist cradling his dead daughter in his arms, while civilization literally collapsed around him and what do we get now this she was probably just trying to make. You jealous I didn’t I would never oh bleep. This is awkward great work Neo anyway. Ellie’s sent out with Dina on a scouting mission to relieve Joel and his brother, who are overdue to return to base because you know a pair of hundred pound teenage girls are definitely the kind of people.
Youd Want To Send On A Dangerous
mission into hostile territory. Unfortunately, the weather turns bad and they’re forced to take shelter at an abandoned lookout post so naturally the thing to do is smoke some weed and bump uglies with Dina Ellie’s gay by the way remember when games actually took the time to build up relationships, letting you get to know a character and bond with them before romance developed, but Neil Druckmann was like Nah it’ll be fine just shove a gratuitous sex scene into the first hour of the game and wipe. out any tension or chemistry between the two characters. It’s at this point that we’re introduced to the other main character of the gameNK]. This is Abby, a theoretical woman and two-time Olympic powerlifting champion, but I’m gonna call her gigantor because I’m an immature bleep and it makes me laugh.
Gigantor Is On The Way To Jackson In
search of Joel, but her group have second thoughts when they see how heavily defended the place is rather than cut off the mission. She decides to push on alone with no backup and no plan for how to get in. Perhaps you’d have a better chance if you spent more time planning your strategy instead of scuffing down baby Ruths anyway. Things are looking bleak for Gigantor when she gets cornered by a group of infected, but then wouldn’t you know it Joel shows up with his brother. Brother Tommy and saves her wow Lucky she happened to run straight into the one man.
Shes Been Looking For All This Time, And
he just so happens to be isolated and vulnerable. What are the odds say. Then Gigantor shoots Joel in the leg and caves his bleep head in with a golf club with Ellie watching on in horror. Perhaps if you’d pulled your finger out of Dina and gotten your ass here a bit quicker. None of this would have even happened.
Ellies Gay By The Way And Thus
the hero of the first game. One of the most beloved video game protagonists of his generation dies a sad miserable pointless death lying bound and helpless on the floor in a pool of his own blood. Having done absolutely nothing of value. You know I’m trying to think of something I can compare this to Oh yeah. There we go you know it’s kind of interesting that the same people who vocally complain about the deaths of female characters being used to motivate the male protagonist all seem to clap like mindless seals when the genders get reversed.

I Guess Its Okay When It
happens to men, then gigantor knocks Ellie unconscious and leaves to make some more massive gains because you know that’s the thing to do when you’ve just brutally murdered the man she loves right in front of her eyes, and she’s literally screaming that she’s gonna hunt you down and kill you what do you think is going to happen After this your bleep bell end do you really want to spend the rest of your days looking over your shoulder waiting for that inevitable moment when Ellie finally comes back to take revenge. The entire plot of this game hinges on a character making a completely nonsensical decision. Ellie’s gay by the way anyway. The intro’s over and it’s time to get into the real meat of this story. Joel’s dead and Ellie’s out for revenge.
So She Travels Across The Country
with Dina to the headquarters of Gigantour’s Group for a bit of good old-fashioned payback. The game’s divided into two main campaigns. One follows Ellie as she kills her way through the members of Gigantor’s Group each one bringing her closer to her ultimate target. The other follows Gigantor herself, allowing you to see the same events from her perspective. A series of flashbacks for both women gradually shed light on key events that have shaped them into who they are.
Ultimately Both Storylines Collide In An
armed confrontation where several characters die and Gigantor leaves behind a badly wounded Alley. her not to come after her again Bleep Sake would you learn a lesson, but then she does come after her again and even goes so far as to rescue her from a prison camp. Just so she can beat the bleep out of her again, but just when she has gigantor at her mercy. She’s like Nah it’ll be fine what’s the bleep. This is the person who murdered Joe in cold blood right in front of you killed most of your friends and ruined your entire life.
Youve Traveled Halfway Across The Country Lost Everything
killed more people than you can count and all of it just to get to this point and now you’re gonna give up and let her walk away really bleep off game. So then Gigantor leaves and Ellie returns home to find Dina gone and she can’t even play the guitar anymore because. Giganter bit her fingers off for the massive protein hits, which is good news for me because I was getting pretty sick of all those guitar sessions anyway. She leaves the farm behind and heads off into the wilderness alone mutilated her friends dead her life destroyed and her future looking grim wow What’s an uplifting game anyway that’s the plot for last of us part two now it’s time to plunge deep inside it just like Owen with Gigantor and deliver my analysis now. Despite all the bad things, I’m about to say about this story.
There Are Actually A Lot Of Things.
This game does extremely well. I can’t believe I’m about to say this but last of us too is a brave ambitious piece of storytelling. Whatever my thoughts on Neil Drockman as a person one thing. I will give the man credit for is his willingness.
To Take Risks This Is A Story
that’s not afraid to tackle mature morally complex issues in a realistic and thought-provoking way. This isn’t a safe comfortable world where the hero defeats the villain and lives happily ever after because there are no heroes and villains in last of us too just people doing what they can to survive looking after those they care about and using that as justification to commit the most appalling acts on anyone who threatens them, whether you consider their actions right or wrong very much depends on your own perspective, and as the ending suggests, maybe, there are no happily ever afters. The world of last of us too is a hard brutal, unforgiving place where good people can be manipulated into doing bad things out of fear and anger where heroes don’t get the heroic deaths. They deserve where you can die in. instant simply because you walk through the wrong door and where innocence offers no protection from vengeance.
Its A World Where Peoples Choices Have
lasting implications that can come back to haunt them days months or even years later, where actions that initially seem clear-cut and obvious can turn out to be much more complex. When the truth is finally revealed. It’s also not afraid to show the very real impact of traumatic experiences on regular people like the scene where a bloodied and bruised Ellie returns from brutally torturing an enemy prisoner shaken and disturbed by what she’s been forced to do and you get to see both the physical and emotional toll her missions taken on her. It’s superbly acted and sensitively presented, and it reminds me that naughty dog are actually pretty good at stuff like this when they choose to be or the scene where a jaded and depressed Owen explains why he refused to kill an enemy soldier instead he turns to me and he’s old and tired he was just ready.
This Is A World Where People Are At
the end of their ropes strung out desperate exhausted by the constant demands of fighting and surviving losing sight of what they’re even fighting for these are all good thematic elements that make for an interesting and challenging narrative and like I say I think the game deserves respect for taking a harder path that being said. Elements of this story are also cheap, contrived and manipulative as bleep Joel’s death was obviously intended to be sudden and shocking, and while that’s definitely true it. also relies on some insane coincidences and really bad character choices like Gigantor, just so happening to stumble into the one man she’d been looking for who would have been impossible to get to otherwise or Joel’s inexplicable decision to let his guard down around a group of armed strangers just because they’re also fighting.
