Spend 15 Minutes Inside the Desolate World of The Last of Us

TheLastOfUs

I just finished watching The Road last night for the first time, which is a beautifully bleak post-apocalyptic drama and one of the main theatrical influences behind the development of The Last of Us (alongside Children of Men, an even more amazing post-apocalyptic sci-fi flick), so I’m itching to play Naughty Dog’s latest cinematic marvel now more than ever. Too bad it ain’t coming our way until next year.

Naughty Dog has at least been kind enough to release the complete gameplay demo that was previously only shown behind closed doors to select media members at E3 before getting a public showing at PAX last weekend. 15 minutes of sneaking through decrepit buildings, brick-upside-the-head brutality, cat-and-mouse action sequences, and Uncharted style conveniently placed ladders will have to do for now.
