Exhausted walking around PAX Prime. But so awesome to meet all you great Seattle fans and out of towners! You guys have been mad hype!
THE ZAIBATSU’s PAX PRIME SCHEDULE:
Hey all! If you are going to PAX Prime, or know someone who is, here is where the fuck we will be! Machinima’s booth #132 on the 4th floor, across from the “sure-to-be empty” Sega booth!
We will be there for a meet and greet from 11AM to 12PM on Friday, and 3PM - 4PM on Saturday and Sunday! We will also be walking/standing in line all over the convention too! Try to catch us all!
Thanks! I’ll try and eat ALL the ice creams!
You’re too good for him anyway! Glad we are able to help you through tough times regardless! ^__^
When it comes to situations like these, no one is really “right” or “wrong” you can’t say for sure when it comes down to it, I honestly feel Naughty Dog dropped the ball a bit in the story department when it comes to the ending of the last of us. Ellie was denied a say in her own fate, Joel took it upon himself to kill people that were actually trying to save the world (wrong or not, that was their intention) We were not shown how that scenario with Ellie and the fireflies played out. And I think it’s a little cheap, because it would have been an incredibly vital one.
Also, I find it VERY depressing to think there’s no hope left in the world, to just give up on it. Are there bad people in the world of the last of us? Yes. But does that mean all the good people should be condemned too? I find that harsh. Is the world actually dead? No food, no water? Life is tough, sure, but it’s not like Fist of the North Star or Mad Max where a natural resource is just gone. People can rebuild after tragedies, and saying it’s not worth doing so is very defeatist to me, and kinda sad.
I think the movie/book Children of Men does a far, FAR better way at taking a depressing global crisis and perfectly balancing both sides of “fuck the world it sucks and no, you can’t give up, there’s stuff worth fighting for”
I’m happy The Last of Us tried to do something different with it’s ending, I just think it was done a bit clumsily and didn’t really give us both sides of the story, or honestly favored one over the other a little bit. It’s an incredible game, don’t get me wrong, but yeah, the story is a little uneven for me.
