Not really surprised. Zombieland Saga was adopted by Tumblrites and came off pretty pozzed.

they tried to push one character being "trans", when it was more a loli trap that got mentioned once in the first season, that's about it. everyone else moved on after that episode.
didn't find anything about a TLOU2 reference and haven't watched season 2 yet, but since it's crunchyroll I expect it's them fucking with the translation again instead of mappa injecting pop culture references all of a sudden. especially given the questionable "source"...

That said, I remember reading a lot of Japanese didn't understand why Ellie didn't kill Abby and hated the game for it. The meme was it was dishonorable and pretty much a culture clash. So I'm certain this is just artists being out of touch faggots no matter where they are more than Japan liking the game.

shit writing, plain and simple. you'd expect for a sequel to the first game to not shit itself as hard as it did, but here we are...

It's ironic as hell because if you go back and read the 2012 Game Informer cover story on The Last Of Us they more or less flat out said it's meant to be a standalone game.

Now they're milking it for all it's worth!
It should have been standalone, but Druckmann/Sony just couldn't resist trying to extract even more money from the universe. And with TLOU2, they pretty much ruined it. Now it seems to have resulted in one of my favorite childhood developers permanently becoming a grimdark circlejerk studio. *sigh*

On another note, I wonder how much gore porn Drucky will force his slaves employees to watch in preparation for Part 3...

Traditionally in Japanese culture you were honorbound to avenge slights against your family members. Ellie failing to avenge Joel was received very poorly over there for that reason.

I do wonder if Drunkmann will double down on the shock value in TLOU3, i.e. killing JJ off in a very gruesome manner, i.e. slamming him into a tree until he dies, because Drunkmann found inspiration for killing people off from Pol Pot, out of all people.

If that were true then why the fuck did the Japanese demand Sephiroth to not be dead?

Do the fujoshits control that much power? Did they claim that they would die of hypothermia if they could not warm their hands upon his heaving pectorals?

Because sephiroth was a popular character? Simple as that. There is a huge difference between sephiroth cheating death and cloud deciding not to fight him because “cycle of vengeance” bullshit.

Besides, show like Naruto have told us vengeance is bad (only when it feels like it though), attitudes towards vengeance are not as simple as citing “tradition.”

Will also add that TLOU2 was disliked over here.

In all honesty it makes no sense for Ellie to leave Abby alive and its basically Druckman faggotry wanting his OC to live and be the protagonist in the next game. Nobody likes the Abby character or cares about it. The creature is disgusting and ugly.

The problem is Druckman is a soyboy faggot and a LOT of cultures avenge slights on their families very violently. As an I-talian, if that happened, Abby would be gutshot and her feminine penis and balls stuffed into a hole in her throat. The Eastern Europeans would be worse than the Italians. And the Mexicans would be just as bad too. Irish as well. They'd fucking tie her to a stake and wrap tires around her and light the troon up like a fucking Christmas tree.

By the by, there wouldn't be a cycle of vengeance, because once you kill all of that cunt's friends, there's no more cycle.

Druckman is Jewish and grew up in the West bank and saw the 'cycle of violence' there, so he's a massive cuck. Even the fucking Jews would get vengeance for fucking one of their own. Mossad did it all the time. Druckman is a soyboy fucking pussy. I was almost thinking he was a fucking anglo or a French faggot.

Also lol if they think they can market TLOU 3 without Ellie. But I bet they'd try to do that shit again where they market Ellie and you play as fucking Abby who is super duper awesome.

TLOU would have worked so much better as an anthology series rather than sequel bait. I think that's the only way to honestly salvage the series, abandon Abby, Ellie and Joel entirely because its impossible.

Well they say third times the charm, so maybe 3 will finally be The Last of Us.

the best way they couldve dealt with the fight at the end, other than maybe making it optional, is have the winner of the fight determine the ending of the game. basically this is round 2 and there will be no rematches. whoever loses loses. if ellie dies during the fight, abby wins and the pov switches to her side briefly. and if ellie wins, then the game's ending kinda follows the already existing ending. maybe have it vaguely imply ellie kills lev or not and as the audience, we wouldnt know, but other than that nothing much changes. it'd feel better as an ending for ellie at least.

and maybe for what'd happen if abby won the second fight, i guess have it go back to shortly after she killed joel and have her feel like it wasnt really worth it in the end. it'd mirror the ellie ending and be symbolic or some shit idfk im just making speculation here on how to improve the ending somewhat

The whole problem with TLOU was that it didn't have a whole lot of game to begin with.

Story problems are honestly secondary to the fact that it's barely qualifying as a game. And it's real easy to tell because almost nobody talks about the actual gameplay mechanics.

So basically how Infamous 2 decided to handle it? Or Infamous Second Son?

Elli was winning the fight until for literally no other reason than Abby was meant to live to be the star of TLOU3 she stops.

This is exactly what I was afraid of. At this point it's painfully obvious Naughty Dog is trying to turn The Last Of Us into a cash cow. With the announcement of a remake to a game that's less than 10 years old when the sequel wasn't even a year old at the time of the announcement and not bothering to focus on other franchises, they're giving it the same treatment Disney gave to Star Wars. Like Jesus, at least give it a break.
Druckmann has not yet realized that he can't turn Schindler's List into a franchise.

Remaking TLOU seems like an exercise in pointlessness. There's absolutely no reason to remake it. Remaking MGS V makes more sense and would probably make more money since that game is actually unfinished.

It's not old enough for a remake and the gameplay is fine as is. For a studio to retcon it's own game to justify its retarded sequel is just...wow. The epitome of spite. If they did that I think Neil Druckman gets the crown for worst major creative.

I have seen studios basically retcon or outright overwrite bad or panned sequels from an amazing original but I have NEVER seen the reverse.

It's the height of fucking hubris to think otherwise. That people just don't get YOUR vision so you have to go back and remake it. I have no doubt Druckman will do some half assed shit like including Abby coming in after Joel murders her dad and crying over his corpse so we give a shit about random NPC who was going to knowingly murder a child. The type of cheap emotional exploitation you find in shit movies.

He will not be able to help himself and he NEEDS to validate himself smugly like the hipster faggot he is.

Druckman is a shit writer and ND is just full of his sycophants. TLOU 2 is a garbage story that is retarded with a MtF tranny that only simps like.

People who love this game remind me of My Hero Academia Fans in that they live in this bubble and don't realize shit outside it exists. They only play this game and get ass mad when people are, rightfully, unimpressed.

There's a reason SP DLC gets canned. And it is not because the main game is popular.
At this point, the awards made him more arrogant. I remember his speech about sexy female characters not being role models, but i would like to see someone do the same to abby in the future on why she's not a good role model

Most sexy female characters are better than Abby by default because they are not remorseless vicious serial killers.

Thought I'd post this here because with the news that Sony is basically placing more importance on review scores than anything else, it's semi-pertinent.

This is the kind of nonsense that results in shit like like TLOU2 and the TLOU1 Remaster Remake. "Oh, the game doesn't play itself, doesn't have enough bareback sex scenes, and [insert absolutely insane diatribe about politics here], 0/10!" Whoever at Sony decided satisfying these cretins was to be priority #1 needs to be launched directly into the sun, fucking hell.

It takes smoothbrain level thinking to try and justify your design ethos by trying to chase the reviewer demographic. You know, the one that's already been bribed into giving good reviews and who doesn't really matter.
