I expect all the gaming journalists who pride themselves on being super woke allies will make a big deal about thihahaha
before the social justice fad dies off, i want there to be at least one game that's completely overhauled just for the middle-east

- female characters have to wear burkas/hijabs
- lgbt characters are either written out of the story or written to be straight or are eventually thrown off of a roof in the name of our lord and savior allah
- pork is removed from the game
- the ost is entirely remade without the use of any instruments
- the antagonist is re-written to be jewish
- there are no characters with non-cat pets; only evil characters can have non-cats as pets
- the protagonist must pray five times a day
- some sort of a mechanic based around suicide bombing is introduced
- etc.

it would be the best/worst thing i will have ever seen in my life

Where's that image of the sweating guy with two buttons? Because I feel they'll be torn between their Islamaboo wokeness and OH MY GOD QUEERS AND LESBIANS PRECIOUS BABIES UwU shit.

But this is kind of hilarious. Didn't Disney stop their stream because of the kiss too? Interesting. I think I've made up my mind about the game, though following all the idiotic pedestal pushing of game journalists about this game solely for the reasons of LESBIANS - fuck this game. I'm not buying it.

I honestly don't think the problem was with Ellie being a lesbian, just more because the recent Battlefield V kerfuffle has left people more aware and angry of this sort of pandering. It just came at a bad moment. People are also anxious to know what happened to Joel, which I suspect isn't around because of the ending to the last game and Ellie finds out.

Or that Joel was killed by the cult members and Ellie is out for revenge. Maybe she split with Joel over the last ending and is somehow responsible for getting him killed. Which spills into hatred and self loathing. She never got to apologize to him for the split, and he died before. So she kind of loses her mind with anger. Joel is presented as Ellie's delusion throughout the game and tries to act as her conscious.



I think a really interesting twist would be is that the party she's at is one of the cult members hoe-downs, as in she's infiltrating them to hollow them out from the inside. I sort of suspect this because the Asian says they have to go out on patrol in the morning. And Ellie's girlfriend in that trailer is part of the cult. Which is why she goes, 'I'm not afraid of you' *cut to Ellie fucking murdering everything* and then she goes, 'You should be.' Its mostly a stealth action game because Ellie has to kill anyone who finds out about her double cross, so you can run and hide, but you can't let anyone live.

An interesting decision would be choosing to murder your girlfriend who is a true believer, and might not have killed Joel, but killed other people. IE: Not a good person. However, I think a better story is that Ellie is acting like a honeypot ala spycraft to seduce a cult member to get information out of her. Ellie isn't in love with her at all, fucking hates her, and is just using her. You don't get a choice to 'save' her because Ellie is full of hate, even if you get to know her as a person. Because Ellie doesn't give a fuck.

However, I think that's too complex a story for this day and age and would upset too many people that Ellie isn't truly gay (she might be. Another twist would be that she isn't, her pure hate is just driving her to do things that are pretty terrible) or in love, nevermind the hundreds of spies who pretended to be gay or lesbian to get information out of people. Or pretended to be in love with them.

Fuck, I want to play that game now. I know the story isn't going to be anything like this and its just going to be a typical girlfriend gets killed and shit for exploiting emotion.
Damn, I would play the shit out of this game if the plot was "Ellie is a full blown sociopath and nobody, good or bad, is safe from her".
Unfortunately we live in current year and this is naughty dog, which means that kiss we see at the start is pretty much where the plot ends.

No can't have that, as soon as the E3 trailer revealed that Ellies main characteristic is kissing women, she's now a sacred cow, it's in California law. Although I know for sure I know the newest hot twitter quote will be "lesbians in refridgerators"

There is a chance, however minuscule it may be, that they're setting up a "bait and switch." Far Cry 5 did something similar; "ayy lmao you get to mow down trump supporters!... lol nevermind, jk it's not as black and white as that." While it wasn't extremly drastic, it was something.

For example, Naughty Dog might decide to write Ellie as a vicious psychopath who manipulates men and women alike for the sake of personal gain. I highly doubt TLoU 2 is going to do something like that, but it's a possibility... and by that I mean there's a .000000000000000001% chance of it happening.

...nonetheless, it's still a possibility. Either way, the progressive crowd will eventually find something else to complain about.

On the one hand, Naughty Dog's CEO managed to permanently convince me that this is some petty woke-marketing shit rather than the honest and uncoerced creative decision of a writer after his "I bravely defended my womyn employees from this evil neckbeard tendie eater playtester who tried to katana massacre us for including wammen in games" interview (which was iirc, amusingly punctuated a while later by accusations he ignored sexual harassment against his female employees), but on the other hand it means more quality animated lesbian porn so either way everyone wins
Do we really want to see anything porn related involving that Sarah Silverman-looking harpy, though? To me the most thrilling part of the whole trailer was whether she'll succeed in poking out her lover's eye with her schnoz.

I was considering playing The Last of Us recently in order to see what the hubbub was all about before the sequel hit; I had heard that the AI was shit and the gameplay was mediocre and yet everyone was on their hands and knees praising it.

Following E3, the SJW lighting artist telling gamers to "go fuck themselves", a lack of main dude and a focus on Captain Carpetmuncher whom I doubt I'll have any identification with, and I'm no longer sure I want to even start this ride.

Exploring the extent of human nature without bringing politics into it isn't exactl what vidya is known for.

They'll complain that Ellie did fuck a black, disabled transwoman. But you are right, no way they make her like that.

The last of us number 1 was a repetitive "game" with "puzzle elements" like having to carry the obvious ladder to the obvious place you need to climb, or placing the obvious plank of wood in the obvious place you need to cross.

The combat was crap. The gunplay was crap.

The storyline was better than most videogames, about 1/2 the quality of a direct to video zombie movie.

I heard about how great it was, and played through a fair amount because my wife wanted to see it. She got bored after a couple of sessions though, and we never played it again. I plan to never play the second one as well.

I agree the weird homophilia is getting annoying. People cheering when gay characters kiss... It's just as gross and weird when gay people do PDA as when straight people do it... except lesbians of course. But seriously... it's weird.

This game is confirmed to not be fun, straight from the horses mouth.

"We don't use the word 'fun'" says The Last of Us 2 director Neil Druckmann
The Last of Us 2 may be one of the most-anticipated games of 2018 / 2019 / who-knows-when (we still don't have a release window yet), but it surely won't be one of the most fun. That's not coming from me, by the way; that's the sentiment from creative director Neil Druckmann, who said in a recent interview with Buzzfeed that while developing the game, the team at Naughty Dog doesn't think in terms of fun.
"For us, with The Last of Us specifically (Uncharted is a little different in our creative approaches), we don’t use the word 'fun,'" Druckmann told Buzzfeed when asked if the team ever tries to make the combat less serious. "We say 'engaging,' and it might seem like a minor distinction, but it’s an important one for us."
