Weekend Confirmed 171 - Xbox One, The Last of Us Spoiler-Cast

By Ozzie Mejia, Jun 28, 2013 11:00am PDT

With Jeff Cannata absent, host Garnett Lee is left to discuss the beginning of the summer doldrums. He welcomes in "Indie" Jeff Mattas and Nikole Zivalich to discuss any final Xbox One thoughts before shifting to Borderlands 2's Assault on Dragon's Keep DLC and discuss the pros and cons of the Season Pass model. Shacknews' Andrew Yoon joins the show for the latter half to help briefly discuss Company of Heroes 2, before ending the normal part of the show a little early with some Finishing Move. That paves the way for a special Spoiler-cast, as the final half-hour of the show is fully dedicated to discussing The Last of Us and its many twists and turns. If you haven't finished the game yet, bookmark it for the future. If you have, enjoy the discussion!

    you were saying that the game wants you to get pissed at joel when the only choice is to kill the surgeon in the hospital. or that he's JUST selfish.

    i completely disagree. i put myself in the game, as joel. so with everything i went through in the whole game and dealing with everyone, with Ellie by my side the whole way and the fact that i she saved my life,and us bonding like a father and daughter(at times) that was the only outcome for me. i would not let her die to (maybe) save the world. (* there was no way of actually knowing that a cure could be made, or it would actually work).

    and i also feel that the world was pretty much gone anyways. that the infected were not the most feared things in that world. for example, David, and also the military. there are more people like that everywhere. so i felt like this world was not really worth saving, but Ellie was. but with every pandemic or disaster in the world that the Earth would sort itself out. i felt that no matter what that was the way it shouldve went.

    • and with the difficulty situation. -you play normal for the story and hard for the challenge- someone i know said that, and i agree with him. i do not agree that normal ruins the game for someone, or takes away from the experience. i played TLOU on normal because i didnt want a major challenge as my first playthrough of the game, that would actually ruin the experience for me. next i'll be playing either on hard or survivor difficulty being that im now completely used to the game and knowing more about the game and they way it should be played(or best way to be played).
