The Last of Us Comic by Dark Horse

Dark Horse announced that they will be releasing the obligatory pre-release comic for the upcoming video game The Last of Us. Naughty Dog, who brought us the Uncharted series, is known for not only innovative gameplay but also captivating storytelling. The demo of the Last of Us that was shown at PAX this fall gave us a glimpse of what promises to be an expansive world in terms of scenery and characters. Even the NPCs clearly had motives aside from being violent obstacles. Dark Horse is the perfect publisher for the comic book team-up with Naughty Dog as they're the publisher known for stories. Their lineup is not the normal superhero fare, featuring the likes of Tom Morello's post-apocalyptic Orchid, the Mass Effect comics, and Umbrella Academy. There is no form to adhere to just a story to tell and a trained eye fro ensuring quality in the medium it's told in. I'm so excited for Ellie's back story and this new, influential character.

PAX 2012 | The Last of US Live Demo

Naughty Dog has set a high bar for themselves with the Uncharted series and if PAX Prime 2012 is any indication, that bar has been met with The Last of Us. I went into the demo with Kae from Fuck Yeah! The Last of Us (and Fuck Yeah! Uncharted) and our expectations were high. Before the demo even began Naughty Dog started off on the right foot. The inside of the viewing room looked like the long abandoned bathroom that Joel and Ellie make their way through in the demo. Read more

Bandits Will be Bandits | The Last of Us

Cowards! The lot of them. Bandits and Highway Men are constantly trying to play on the sympathies of  those of us who don’t lack morals. They did it in The Book of Eli and They’re doing it again in The Last of Us. Naughty Dog has been slow releasing information and videos about their upcoming post-apocalyptic video game. This time it’s a video! The cinematic trailer shows a scene from a day in the life... Read more

This week in the real world

First of all, sorry for being absent as of late. I just didn’t have anything to say and so I didn’t say anything.  But I have been busy. Not buying a house like Char or getting good grades like Ann. Mostly I’ve been playing video games and reading comic books and I got a new phone (almost immediately after, my work phone died). While its always important to plan for the worst the current situation... Read more

Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead Video Game!

Ohmigawd, Ohmigawd, Ohmigawd! I’ll try to breath, but, it’s finally happening. No, not the apocalypse. The Walking Dead video game. They said it would but after waiting so long (at least it felt like so long) I thought, maybe it was just an idea that wouldn’t really come to full fruition. Then, one day, I saw the AMC choose your own adventure motion comic game thing, Dead Reckoning, and thought that was the game. I mean,... Read more

Review: Bastion (XBLA)

“There’s like a kid who wakes up and everyone’s dead and the world is gone.” That was how my husband described Bastion to me. “Ew.” Was my response. “That sounds terrible and sad and not like a game at all.” “I guess I can see that. It is pretty sad… Meh, try it,” he said, handing me the controller. I settled in and tried it. Immediately I was sucked into the story of The Kid as narrated... Read more

Apocalyptic Video Game: ARMY OF DARKNESS DEFENSE (iOS)

Because I click almost every link I encounter1, I discovered the most amazingly fun (and free) game on my iPod via an advertisement! A semi-side-scrolling, pseudo beat-em-up, defense game called Army of Darkness Defense. … Why yes, the game is based on the famously camp B-movies staring Bruce Campbell. Army of Darkness Defense features characters from the Army of Darkness movie, such as Ash (including voice over quotes), Lord Arthur, and Duke Henry. You play as Ash (and... Read more
