    I didn't want this. TLoU is a perfect standalone title but, fuck me, I'm in.
    Sums up my feelings exactly.

    Bring it on.

    Stand alone, yes, but clearly there is still a story to be told as both the main characters are alive at the end.
    As was planned until now, there wasn't. Just because they survived didn't automatically mean there was a story about further trauma that was worth telling. It was originally designed as a self-contained piece.

    I think the point is that it didn't need a sequel. As a stand alone title it was brilliant.

    They have decided to 'make some stuff up' like you say, and I'm psyched for it. But if they had left it as it was and released a new IP instead that would have been fine too (or probably better). Plus there is the risk that the follow up doesn't do the original justice. Although I'm sure that won't be the case here.

    Who cares what was originally designed?
    The World of TLOU exists, the characters still exists. Make some stuff up.
    Exactly there reason there are so many shitty sequels to so many things.

    The whole middle part of that trailer is really reinforcing the idea that Joel made the right decision by saying "Fuck the Human race" effectively. Can we play as the fungus please?

    No release yet, I would guess spring 2019.

    Last of Us 1 was June wasn't it?

    And yeah, it looked mint.

    No doubt high-pitched wails of "pandering!" and "omg politiks!" are emanating from basements the world over.

    The game looks superb - although part of me will miss the surly teenage Ellie.

    Looks really bloody good. Few games have captured that feeling of dread when a group are trying to find you like the first did. I wonder if any of that was
    due to the responsibility of looking after young Ellie?

    Whilst it looks beautiful and a really good continuation of that story, I hope they don't double down on the grim, dour, gory nature of it. Last of Us was at it's best during the downtime and the conversations between Joel and Ellie. Speaking of which, I hope he's still prominent in this.

    I still feel incredibly protective of Ellie, itís amazing the feelings the first game engendered in me.
    I do need to have a word with her about all the knifing though.

    I really hope the final game runs at that graphical fidelity and frame rate (maybe only on PS4 Pro?). I'll still get it regardless, the first one was amazing.

    I wonder if her immunity to the cordyceps is hereditary? If so, I can imagine the storyline touching upon the nature of her sexuality being an impediment to passing on those genes, and whether or not a person should ignore their sexuality in order to suit society.

    A genuinely interesting question. Too bad there's zero insightful debate to be had since it's an obvious trap set by EG's biased troll denizens.

    Wish it was brought up by someone who isn't a proven cupcake.

    Is it not a highly pertinent theme? The role of individual autonomy within a post-apocalyptic society. Ellie, as a woman immune to the fungus, is key to the future of the human race - yet, by being homosexual she is unable to produce offspring who would possibly share her immunity.

    It offers up interesting questions about the role of the self vs societal needs. Are we meant to respect her sexuality, her desire to live life on her own terms - perhaps at the detriment of the future of the human race?

    Her refusal to be subjugated by a society that, perhaps like the fungus, treats her body as little more than a host for replication's sake is perhaps a society not worth saving.

    Her body becomes the political, very much like in the first game.

    We're not going to feed you by taking you serious. You've lost the claim to intellectual sincerity, quite a few shitpost hur-dur statements ago.

    I'm more interested in the debate if we'd lose or gain more of a sense of our humanity and societal values if we take disingenuous cretins like you out of the gene pool. It's a far more immediate and urgent debate to the continuation and proper evolution of our species, to be had right now as you're sat giggling behind your keyboard, than at what point two normal, genuine individuals being happy together is a luxury in a futuristic, fictional dystopia.

    Too late, bub. I have already passed on my genes. Have you?
