Reminder: owners of God of War Ascension can play a bit of The Last of Us today.

After our last go at it, we boldly proclaimed that The Last of Us is still good. Naughty Dog's survival horror game has been long-awaited, and if you want a taste before its June 18 release, you best dust off your copy of God of War: Ascension. Today, owners of the disc will be able to access a special early demo.

To get the demo, you'll need to pop the Blu-ray into your PS3. Then, select "The Last of Us Early Access" on the main menu, and you'll be able to download the exclusive demo from the PlayStation Store.

According to the PlayStation.Blog, the demo features the "Outskirts" level, which has Joel, Ellie, and Tess making their way through the Infected. Remember: Runners and Clickers respond to sound, and the latter will kill you in one bite. You may want to read up how I approached this very demo. And don't forget to craft some shivs. They'll come in very handy.

      Was God of War Ascension any good?

        It wasn't anywhere near as good as the other God of War games. I got about 90% though it and then haven't decided to pick it up again because I just wasn't finding it anywhere near as interesting as the others.

      Played it. It was fantastic. Especially the last bit, it got crazy no matter how I tackled it. Still, it felt good to get busy and have some tactile, face to face melee encounters. Sweet.
