2022.01.29 10:14 MrGamePadMan Am I allowed to express my criticism of Part II on here? Genuine question.
I’m not just a “bigot hater.” I’m not a “disgruntled TLOU fan.” I’m not “someone that just doesn’t get it.”
I am a big fan of this IP. The first game speaks for itself. It’s own achievements in storytelling, characters, gameplay, pacing, etc. I don’t need to tell anyone who has played it, the reality of how that game made us fans of The Last of Us.
Believe it or not, even after the leaks and me not feeling great about what I decided to watch, I kept an open mind because that’s what type of consumer of gaming I am. I’m not a cynical fan of my hobby. I appreciate the craft of all the disciplines that go into making games, as I watch many behind the scenes docs within the gaming industry.
So, with that in mind, even with me not feeling optimistic of the sequel when I saw what was leaked, I still went ahead and had preordered a Collector’s Edition (200 dollars), because of the fanfare I had for the IP going into the sequel…right? And I played it. And I tried making sense of what Naughty Dog decided to portray and how my own judgement of it really fell in that observation…and no matter what I do to try and have “an open mind” about the events of Part II, my gut instinct always reverts to: this sequel just didn’t do the first game justice.
So, here’s my own criticism.
EVERY time I come across a cutscene, or gameplay of the first game…no matter what context, situation, etc…the first game just managed to make, me as the player, feel, even though this is a harsh world…there’s people, harsh in their own ways, hoping for “something to live for.” The way Gustavo scored every moment and section of Part I…MADE The Last of Us, “The Last of Us.”
What made the first game just work on a tone angle, is the melding of the beauty/hope moments in this harsh, dark world and the music accompanying that juxtaposition…it just was executed brilliantly. So, it finely balanced and played this see-saw of genuine light-hearted scenes and glimmers of hope and then, other times of cynical, jaded, dark realities…with the appropriate music. I can’t express enough how the original’s music played 80% of the investment one felt. Least for me.
Decisions of characters made sense. Believable. Nothing felt forced. Or shoe-horned in any way. Not once. The writing was natural and expertly executed snd performed.
There’s a reason this IP became the new standard, in which, all narrative-driven games would be held up to. Naughty Dog created lightning in a bottle.
So, here’s the sequel. To me, besides the first opening sequence with riding a horse played by Joel…Part II, never after that, captured any tone that the first game had in spades; albiet being those beautiful, hopeful moments. And I get it. Neil and company said, “this one’s about hate.” Sure, it is…but, if you just 90% make the game brood in a darker tone…there’s no healthy balance. No brilliance to shine in juxtapositioning. You just have a game that feels “forced” to be “dark” at the risk of fatigue. In this sense, the overall tone just felt entirely disjointed from the identity of what made Part I, “The Last of Us.”
Also, to me, Ellie’s character felt like a shell of her former writing. I knew it was Ellie. But—felt like the writing was safe and not dynamic really from her brilliant nuances the original portrayed her personality. Sure, she’s 19 in Part II and matured, but it’s like she came back from Vietnam and any enthusiastic traits she had before, was just completely non-existent. So, she was pretty one-dimensional in comparison, imo.
Also, all the side characters ended up being forgettable. Characters like Tess, Bill, Henry and Sam…all were characters that played a significant role in the make-up of the game as a whole. Owen? Jesse? Performed well enough but I just felt the execution left them, ultimately, forgettable.
And as far as the most controversial person, Abby…I just felt, for Naughty Dog to pick a person that, for “30 seconds” in the first game, we interact with, being the surgeon; her father…Abby’s whole story arc and agenda, from an origin standpoint, I just…wasn’t invested in? It inherently caused an issue as far as, “okay…who is this character and why should I care as much as they’re attempting, me the player, to care about?”
She felt…imo, shoe-horned. And for ALL possibilities to have Joel die…this plot was the best version that Neil and team could come up with? “We’ll do you right, the fans,” he said in an interview on stage. It just felt…lazy if one can argue of all the other possible, compelling situations that could have transpired.
These are just some of the things that did not resonate with me. I can respect people finding the sequel to be amazing and worthy…but, for me, the first game and Part II, feel like two very different games as far as cohesiveness is concerned. A missed opportunity, unfortunately for myself and a lot of others.
I just hope fans of the sequel can find the same respect for my take on this divisive game. It truly tarnished the legacy for me. And I just wish they had realized more…what made the first one work so brilliantly and applied those strengths in the sequel. I just feel they dropped the ball.
That being all said; I’m still looking forward to their next single-player game….

2022.01.29 10:14 Chrador A little font problem with my HUD
| Hey, I'm not exactly sure if this is the correct place to ask but I've recently installed this game again after a few months of break and since I don't like the original orange-colored HUD, I installed EDHM, along with the UI. Picked a decent Theme I liked and worked on it to customize, finally, I had some decent-looking HUD that pleased me but I had a problem, some texts are like this (check the picture) and I couldn't find the reasoning. Does anyone know why is this happening?|

2022.01.29 10:14 Chill_Dev is the "Salad Fingers - Beware the friendly stranger" song Copyrighted?
Hello, i was searching for this on the internet and found something that said that this song was created and posted on this subreddit (https://www.google.com/search?client=opera-gx&hs=zaW&sxsrf=APq-WBtRvxE1SjUhdt5zaVb-P8Q38_KNTA:1643461509372&q=is+salad+fingers+beware+the+friendly+stranger+"copyright"&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjI0N6bg9f1AhXFuKQKHQHUCcAQ5t4CegQIKhAB&biw=1495&bih=762&dpr=1.25) (third result on google, can provide picture if website/info can not be found).
So i was wondering if anyone on here, mods or otherwise, knows if it is possible for me to use this song in things like streams and or games, with credit given (though im not too sure who to give credit to in this situation). Although if this subreddit did not spawn this creepy music, if anyone would still happen to know of the copyright status, please let me know.
All help and answers are appreciated. Thank you :)

2022.01.29 10:14 OwlRepair Bästa stället att bo med familj?
Såklart väldigt individuellt men hade ändå varit kul att höra andras perspektiv och erfarenheter.
Jag funderar på att flytta inom några år och kan tänka mig: hus/radhus centralt (typ Örgryte), lite större hus längre utanför stan (Mölnlycke, Partille etc) eller mer lantligt med mer space (Lerum, Alingås, Halland)
Jag ser tex fördelar med att bo centralt som cykelavstånd till jobbet (i stan) och stort utbud av typ mat. Men det innebär ofta mindre tomt, kanske lite otryggare omgivningar (speciellt när barnen ska åka själva till träning osv).
Hur ska man kunna bestämma sig?

2022.01.29 10:14 Nodbot Sci-fi "death game" about sneaking in killer drone patrolled territory and scavenging treasure
I remember coming across this book on reddit but do not remember the name. It's a very pulpy thriller about a deserted city guarded by patrolling flying drones and people sneak their way in to run off with treasure in the city; kind of like what a 'stalker' does.
