The Last Of Us Gameplay Screens: We're All Tingly Inside
So far, we've only seen that incredible debut trailer and the only screenshots have been taken from that video.
But as a sneak peek of their upcoming issue, Game Informer has tossed up four in-game pics of Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us.
There are a few notes next to those screenshots; for instance, under the screenshot of a baddie snapping a plank over Joel's back, we learn that weapons will break after repeated use. It's also interesting to note that the backdrop is actually the city of Pittsburgh...well, a post-apocalyptic Pittsburgh, but still. Lastly, if anybody is worried about the Joel/Ellie tandem, Naughty Dog stressed that the game isn't "one long escort mission."
During a brief demo, Game Informer says Ellie was always able to keep up, and never got in the way. That's great news because babysitting sucks. Yeah, I said it. It sucks. However, done correctly, a partner mechanic can be great; I thought a perfect example of how a duo should work was found in Resident Evil 5. You can hate on that game all you want but Sheva was a fantastic partner. Never had to worry about her.
