    The Last of Us Part 2

    Man that video was painful. Seems to have missed the point of what the game was trying to do, and when you play the game you notice that the stuff that was in the first game is in this game, but it's just that Ellie isn't the one doing it because Joel isn't there as a guide, she's what 19 or 20 in this, she's a kid, an angry confused kid. There's a level of unrelenting psychological horror that permeates through every encounter, every hand-scrawled note, every vista. There's sadness, a melancholy, that's hard to deal with and if people wanna get angry at a lack of new gadgets then maybe they are approaching the game from the wrong angle. The fact that that guy in the video said the story was the biggest let-down is such a telling thing that it's hard to put in to words just how sad I feel for him. The story is exactly what needed to happen after the events of the first game, they even cover how she feels about in this game and why she is letting revenge drive her. The fact that you glimpse into the lives of other people trapped in this nightmare world shows her growing up as a person, as opposed to the colourful "happiness" that was in the first game, she was with Joel, they had a purpose, there was something to look forward to at the end. Here, and now? It's just dark, what point is there to keep going unless you find something to keep going FOR? The gameplay is non-stop horror, and I don't mean jump-scares and monsters and buckets of blood, it's horror at a primal level, the screams of the "enemies" are death-rattles from our ancestors, it's horrifying killing people, the violence is disgusting, un-called for, over-the-top and every single moment is reminding you that you'd rather be anywhere else but here, but you ARE here and you have to keep going and for what, revenge? Why? At what cost? It's the worst game I've ever played and simultaneously the best, the humanity shines through everywhere and if the lack of a new crowbar or carrying a box to climb into a window ruins the experience then you need to look deeper because it's worth playing and will be talked about in a decade as a high-watermark for the medium. Naughty Dog could shut down tomorrow and they'd still be relevant for a long time to come. All the bullshit about trans people, big muscley girls, AGENDA and oh-god-muh-politics is transparent as fuck and I hope one day for the planet earth to be renamed Fashbash Centriumius Prime.

    >Also, sexually ambiguous characters in post-apocalyptic setting make very little sense awww diddums, did da widdle peepee or jayjay make it all uncomftabibble :((( > (or even Trans but I'm not sure if Abby is one, because how the fuck you do that? Who prescribes & produces the hormones?). tyst. "is one", disgusting.. don't ignore the fact that the WLF are still driving tons of vehicles around, where'd they get all the gas? refineries can't still be functioning? are they just .. scavenging and finding usable gasoline out in the world? hmmmm maybe they're doing that with medicine too, and animals, and all the other stuff that still exists. and EVEN IF the ENTIRE CAST of characters were trans, what difference would it EVEN MAKE for the story that is told? or is it, could it just possibly be, no surely not, there's no way at all that you are being a little bit disingenuous with your reasoning. >They should've reserved that for some other title where it makes sense setting-wise. Uncharted maybe? yeah for sure i totally agree, much better to wait with stuff until everyone is comfortable and accepting, like how now-a-days nobody is offended by the dirty gays. we, the straight, white, moral majority opened our hearts and our minds and decided that yes, we can tolerate them. not accept them or stop beating them up in the street, i mean that'd be crazy right, gotta keep those subhumans in their place or the world would go crazy. imagine if i had to look at a penis other than my own, i think i'd vomit. in fact i don't even wash my asshole because that would be gay, imagine, those slippery lathered fingers accidentally.. teasingly.. work their way into my boy-pussy, oh no, i can't quite.. seem to work them free no matter how much i struggle, the water is pouring over my head and still i struggle, it's hard to breathe, the air is so steamy and lithe, the waterfalling droplets of the showers caressing my glistening body as they pitter patter onto the tiles below, yet still.. i struggle. >Bring back Amy Hennig. yeah for sure, she was a great writer and the projects she worked on at ND were truly phenomenal, uncharted 2 is a masterpiece. druckmann wrote the first 'last of us'.

    Might start regretting not getting that RTX card after all... https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/cyberpunk-2077-ray-tracing-dlss-geforce-now-screenshots-trailer/?fbclid=IwAR1JEO2QFFeeEVm3cqAZXoWxOzRj2BszhitUzBkjZ-dwjZfv9kjNPaVgPX0 PS. I really hope they let us tone down that over the top chromatic aberration on PC graphical settings.

    I just uploaded version 2.0 of my first map de_tomb to the workshop. It's been exactly a month since the first version went up. I've completely revamped the map based on playtest feedback. I fixed how dark it was, the narrow paths, and added more routes around the map among other things. Steam page here. Imgur album here. Flythrough video here. Hope you like it!

    The Last of Us Part 2

    On a serious note, most people I respect do seem to have positive things to say about this game. It must be annoying to release a huge game and for the rubes to set its “reputation” before its even released, based mostly on leaks and/or politics, and then turn that itself into a meme. But I have a feeling the sales have been very good...

    I'm still wondering if they went full GTA open world with similar pedestrian rules / living city feel or the original vision of more hub based areas connected together. I hope the 2nd because honestly it makes for better gameplay.

    Nvidia Ampere and AMD RDNA2 seem to land just in time for this game. I'll be upgrading to the RTX era, especially if AMD brings some competition and keeps Nvidia's price hikes in check.

    [CS:GO Wingman] de_dozen

    After dealing with a stand-in brush "model", I've finally got my hands on a proper egg carton from: https://grabcad.com/library/simple-egg-carton-1 Unfortunately the author did a bit too good of a job on it, and Crowbar was not able to compile all of the geometry, so I had to decimate the hell out of it: It turned out a bit wonky after removing so many faces, but at least now I was able to get it compiled and in game. For my purposes I think it fits fine: (Sorry for the bad lighting, this was a fast compile) You can see the original brush model I was using toward the back. The initial version of de_dozen has been out for about a week now, but there's been a lot going on since then. Loads detail improvements, fixes, soundscape implementation, and more will be coming in the next update, which I plan on publishing the second week of July.

    Going to wait for those sweet black friday - cyber monday deals to upgrade my rig before playing the game. I can probably wait two weeks right? Maybe not :c

    What are you playing now?

    Nice, I love the first Uncharted man. I'm still working my way through Ori Will of the wisps. Tried GTAV on PC for a couple hours, still looks awesome but the shooting feels so outdated and unpolished, I doubt I have it in me to play it any longer. I also got the DLC they released for Prey (Mooncrash) and for Dishonored 2 (Death of the outsider), will get started on those soon.

    Something feels off about the shape and size of that bottom jaw. I feel like it would look better if it connected to the neck and if the neck was thicker, or if the jaw was just smaller.

    Okay, then I misinterpreted your first answer, apologies. I think just another Ellie and Joel adventure would been just that, fan service, boring and predictive, and very safe. But ND is trying to push the medium further that most other companies here and I think they deserve some kudos for that, even if they might have missed the mark. At least it wasn't some Game of Thrones ending where they just gave up in the writing room. What happens in the story is all the same to me in the end, it's the discussion around it online I have found interesting. In-game I've spent most of the time looking at the tech and all the cool details in the world lol

    Also, sexually ambiguous characters in post-apocalyptic setting make very little sense (or even Trans but I'm not sure if Abby is one, because how the fuck you do that? Who prescribes & produces the hormones?). They should've reserved that for some other title where it makes sense setting-wise. Uncharted maybe? Bring back Amy Hennig.
