Hey everyone ^_^ It's Snivystorm here!
Now I know, I know, it seems out of place for me to be doing this now when all the hype is on the new The Last of Us Part II which was revealed only days ago. Now don't get me wrong, I'm just as hyped as you guys for it (we get to play as Ellie *squeals with joy*). However, it's because of this new found focus on Ellie that I want to take a step back and re-evaluate the man who started it all. Joel.
This is the man who we effectively began our journey with, but just what sort of man was he? He did seemingly good things, saving Ellie's life, fulfilling Tess' wish and looked after his daughter. However, is there another side to this man and how does this shape our view of him being a 'hero'?.
I hope you enjo…

It's amazing how many questions Naughty Dog were able to raise with a single 4-minute video wasn't it? Especially as most of it was a music video! Anyway, I've been thinking (probably a bit too hard) about the The Last of Us Part II Reveal Trailer and I have a few thoughts that I'd like to share with you.
WARNING - This blog post will contain spoilers for The Last of Us, Left Behind and the reveal trailer for The Last of Us Part II
Not 'The Last of Us - American Daughter' or 'The Last of Us - Ellie's Vendetta' or anything like that. 'The Last of Us, Part II'. Neil is telling us that this is not a sequel, it is a direct continuation, time skip or no. We are following on from the end of the original game to follow Ellie and Joel's personal and joint j…

The Last of Us Part II was officially announced at Sony's annual PlayStation Experience event on December 3rd! Naughty Dog also announced a standalone addition to the Uncharted series titled Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
The Last of Us Part II was announced with a trailer, which reveals that the sequel will take place several years after the original. Ellie returns as the playable character, who is now 19-years-old, as she plays an acoustic guitar and sings in an abandoned house. Joel enters the room and appears to ask Ellie if she is ready to go through with what sounds like a plan. She replies "I'm gonna find and I'm gonna kill every last one of them."
Creative director Neil Druckmann released his statement on the sequel saying:
While the trailer…

Here's a brief look at most perks in The Last of Us Factions MP. I might've missed a few.
Tier D (The ? Perks)
These perks are only good in rare situations or with a bit of luck.
Pistol Auto-Zoom: This perk transforms any pistol (excluding the Shorty) into a COD zoomed sidearm. However, for most pistols, this will mess up its versatility factor since without skill with quickly firing, the pistol becomes extremely difficult to use at close range. Plus, it makes your FOV even worse than with normal aiming, making it easier to be shivved/snuck up on. This perk is one to avoid at all costs, unless players are doing challenges or something similar.
Fortitude: While this perk has a great use in Survivors and Supply Raid, it will not be as effective…Read more >
Do you guys think they will make a Last of Us 2? It was accidently announced in a podcast a while ago. Do you think they'll leave off right after the last scene with Joel & Ellie or after they have traveled far? I hope they don't have it so that Ellie is an adult and Joel dies; too many people are attached to Joel.Read more >
This blog will be about a possible The Last of Us prequel that might eventually be made,
what kind of prequel would you want It to be?, share ideas and discuss your thoughts on them with others on this blog! ^.^
I'll start with my prequel idea, It'll be about the early days of the outbreak on Joel or Tommy's story starting from shortly before the Prologue and ending roughly 4-6 weeks afterwords when the country has completely fallen apart from the infection. The action and chaos will be on a much greater scale then the 1st game's main storyline, comparable to The Last of Us Prologue chapter and the Uncharted games. It will also show us Joel's ex-wife and his other daughter and reveal their fates. Most of the game will show the world falling…

Is it just me or does Robert look like Bronn from Game of Thrones??Read more >
I don't think she does, but I seem to be in the minority.
We see her lose the blade when she battles David. After Joel finds her, we see them leave right away, without scavenging the place. Are we to assume they got outta there, found no one else in the area so then went back in? I just assumed they left and thus, bye bye switchblade. Maybe it's one of those "video game" things we just accept... like, how can she possibly have her backpack in the last scene too? Joel didn't carry it out, and I can't imagine he'd leave Ellie unconscious in the car to go back in there and look for it.
I could pay more attention next time I play the Spring season... but if I'm not lucky enough to get that glitch in the tunnel, I'm too busy getting my butt …Read more >

Simply put, hackers are a huge problem in video games. Now they are popping up in The Last of Us, so I came up with a good system to catch these unfair players, and ban them to put them in their place.
First off, you see a player do something that is off, i.e shoot through cover, infinite ammo, buffed health, etc.
Start by doing this, and this may take a while.
1. Test it. It could be a glitch, so host a Private Match with a few friends and try it out for yourself. If you can shoot through the cover as well, it's called an exploit. This is different from hacking because it is not player made. It forms from bugs in The Last of Us, and this is remedied by being updated. However, if you cannot do the same thing...it could be hacking. An example o…Read more >
Seriously, why is that even an option?? It's a mature game, so younger kids shouldn't be playing it anyway -- parental control not applicable. So who wants to turn it off? If you don't like gore, you don't like violent video games like this one... right? I would love to hear from someone who does turn it off, and why.Read more >
Okay, so my novelisation of The Last of Us has started to go up. You can get it via my Fanfiction.net homepage.
Be warned - I've got a wordy narrative style and like writing out action scenes in detail sometimes. So, it isn't exactly a casual read. There is also going to be a lot of my personal interpretation of the characters and their relationships but... well, that's what fan-fiction is all about, isn't it?

Right now, I'm in the process of writing a fan-fiction that is, basically, a novelization of the story portion of the game; I've never seen one done 'straight' (i.e. no self-inserts and the like). However, I have run up against a creative block and I'd be interested to have everyone's input.
Should I write it strictly to the story or should I do something that I've been thinking about for a while. Should I rewrite it with Tess not getting infected in the museum. I can see both options having both its positives and its negatives. I truly haven't decided what I want to do so please let me know what you think is best.
Thanks for your input! I'll let everyone know if/when I start publishing with another Blog post.Read more >
According to the voice actor Nolan North, best known for his involvement in Naughty Dog's Uncharted as the lead Nathan Drake and as David in The Last of Us, has reported that a sequel to The Last of Us is currently in the works.
When asked if he was working with Naughty Dog on any future projects at MetroCon 2015, he replied "For now, [Uncharted 4] is the last one. I know they're doing The Last of Us 2, but my character in The Last of Us kind of met an untimely demise."
Albeit this does not fully confirm that a sequel is in the works, Troy Baker, the voice of protagonist Joel in The Last of Us, has stated that he knows nothing about a sequel. Baker says "I don't know if we're going to do another one or not. If we do, I trust Neil [Druckmann] and Bru…Read more >

The Last of Us Grounded + Read all Before Attempting
Grounded is the hardest difficulty in this game it makes Survivor look like a piece of cake if you fallow these exploits you'll beat it without a problem if you want to get it the legit way, then go ahead this is for people who don't feel like having to conserve ammo.
1st thing you want to do is play the game on Easy and Easy +, the reason you wanna do this is because you have the option to use nothing but melee weapons the reason for this is that when Grounded comes, you can have all ammo and also all your Nail Bombs, Molotovs, Health Kits, and Smoke bombs lastly you'd have all your suplies.
2nd you can play any chapters you want in what order you want to but this order is what will be bes…Read more >
A feature I'd like in any future TLoU game is a sandbox on-line multi-player world. In this, you could find your own path and adventure. One aspect of this would be character creation. I suggest that this should be based around six distinct character classes around which you could form your character. These would have several basic skills and would reward developing and equipping the character in a certain way.
My suggested classes are:
- Sniper - Long-range fighter but generally weak or at least hesitant at hand-to-hand; also acts as a scout; Load-out is biased to long-range weapons like the Scoped Hunting Rifle with only light close-range weapons;
- Skirmisher - A bit like Joel (and my future Ellie); a jack-of-all-trades with fairly balanced ski…
For me, it was a tie between the entire hospital segment at the end or during the Suburb chapter when you see the armored car come around the corner. That was terrifying, I was not expecting that. Also, everything at winter was scary, especially playing as Ellie. I also found being alone with Sam in Ish's community in the sewers was terrifying, especially on HARD. What about you?Read more >
I really think that Armour is an equipment option that could realistically be included in both a single-player campaign and multiplayer game based in The Last of Us universe.
This would mostly be things you obtained from the black market in QZs or from trading posts and markets in secure settlements. For example:
- Slum-Flak - Basically two-layer canvas clothing stuffed with things like cork panels and multiple layers of rag in between the layers. This has the effect of reducing the damage you receive from body hits from weapons by about a quarter and melee hits by about a half until it degrades after about eight or so hits;
- Slum-Plate - Made up of bits of metal (like corrugated iron fencing), crudely shaped to fit around the body; it's heavy (and, …
Hey everyone, its come to my attention that a leak for a sequel to The Last of Us has surfaced. This comes from the LinkedIn page of Michael Knowland, a character artist who is serving as lead character artist on the upcoming PS4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief's End as well as... well what do we have here? It says on his LinkedIn page that he's also the lead character artist for The Last of Us 2, in which he is prototyping head sculpts. This confirmation is pretty solid since he is on the Uncharted team and keep in mind that many games have been leaked like this before, so this is a very strong indicator that The Last of Us 2 is on the way. Be excited.
Update: Knowland has removed the information from his LinkedIn page. He's probably…Read more >

I really hope this series has many more games and DLCs, it is by far the best game I have ever played, I have had so many OMG WTF momments while playing its unreal, unscripted things just happen that blow me away!
This one time a dude had me in an arm lock and another dude was punching my gut, I then hear Elly say ' HEY ASSHOLE ' and she threw a brick in the face of the guy punching me, then all of a sudden she jumped on the screen like a young white ninja and stabed the other guy in the back, he let me go from the arm lock and i punched him out, then pulled out my gun and shot the other guy in the face just as he recovered from the brick to the face....I then stood there in silence for a few seconds taking in what just happend, and Elly …

Okay, at the risk of making this too much about myself, after seeing Marek Okun's apparent teaser picture for the TLoU sequel, I've found myself how that scene could work out. It strikes me that the scene a good second teaser trailer for the second game, contrasting with the character establishment one in my previous blog post.

Just a little idea for a teaser trailer for the sequel idea I outlined in my previous Blog. I have presented it in script format for ease of reading.
EXT. OUTSKIRTS OF A RURAL TOWN
CAPTION: "New Ararat, Jackson County, Wyoming"
CAPTION: "April 12th, 2038"
The area is lightly wooded. In the foreground is a pine cabin. JOEL, noticeably older, is sitting on a bench on the patio, strumming his guitar. He's looking meditatively into the distance.
Two definitely-feminine legs drop into the frame. We follow the WOMAN as she stalks silently forwards. As she gets closer to JOEL, she pulls out a Butterfly Knife, which she near-silently opens. She's almost at JOEL and taking an overhead back-stab posture when...

Hello people, me and Jim Logan have been talking a lot and we decided to scrap the idea of the show, now that doesnt mean the show is not happening, Jim and I thought about Joel and Ellie and we decided to leave their story to Naughty Dog and Neil to figure out and finish. This means a few things for auditioners and such
A. Show is still happening in america, still being filmed and posted on youtube
B. All Ellie and Joel auditions have been deleted, they are useless because we are using different characters
C. You will not find out if you get the part for the main characters any time soon, Jim and I are still figuring out the deal with the main characters, the story and so forth.
D. We will give a character description when we are done making …

I've made a few large posts on the forum since joining this Wiki. I thought it might be a good idea to consolidate them on a single Blog so that people can see my theory about what is happening with Ellie and what we may see in a sequel game all in one place rather than scattered around a half-dozen posts.
It's an amazingly complex ending to analyse really, similar in many ways to the disagreements and philosophical quandries of the three options at the end of Mass Effect 3.
On the surface, Joel's actions are entirely selfish yet completely comprehensible. Ellie has become one of the few, if not the only, emotional anchors he has left in his life (his bridges with Tommy having been largely burned some time ago). He is something of a misanthr…

I, for one, love the last of us and believe it is a truly magnificent game. The storyline, drama and cutscenes are all so perfect. There is just one fatal flaw , its playstation only! The last of us is a beautiful piece of art and needs to reach its full potential by letting it get sold on the PC; be it Steam or just on a disk. It pains me to not be able to play it and im not the only one out there, hundreds of thousands of people agree. The game needs to be put onto the PC.Read more >
I been reading many blogs on the internet. That at (TLOU: Live Show) there was a secret ending. That picks up after the original ending of TLOU. But Naughty Dogs would not allow people to tape it so it could viewed online.
According to many websites. It is one where years later Joel moves on with his life. And Ellie has not gotten over the events of what happened at the end of the game. In the Live Show. At the end it shows Joel(Troy Baker) playing a guitar and singing to Ellie(Ashley Johnson) sitting in a chair.
Followed by Joel, telling Ellie that he is leaving to go get married. Of all the stupid things for a selective ending for only the people who attended this show. What the hell is Naughty Dogs thinking??! And further more what the h…Read more >
Hi! If you are reading this it means that A) I linked you to this or B) You are reading this because you may be a part of the show. I have some things I want to clarify with you. Just a little update on the show really
1. Who is currently working on the show? Me and Jim Logan (The User) are. we tend to talk about different things about the show, but it has been a while since we last talked. so when I refer to "we" I mean me and Jim Logan.
2. Will we be getting paid? No. There is a big possibility that we are not going to pay you, BUT we will pay for your Hotel room and food service (food service on the set)
3. When will we find out if we got the part or not? Around the time of Halloween (Friday, October 31) you will find out whether, you got …Read more >

I posted this on my website quite a long time ago and I though I'd share it with you guys. It's about a presentation I made about TLOU and its philosophy at my University. It's pretty insightful. I'd like to know what you think about the reactions.
Well, well, well. It's 26/11/2013 and I just came back home from the University. What better to do than study? I say write my feelings about the presentation I just gave on The Last of Us...and then study. So what is this about?
Once upon a time I showed to my professor of the 'Philosophy-Ethics' course, a short video I made from clips of The Last of Us (TLOU). I meant only to share the world of TLOU but then he said: "How about you make a video of the game and present it to the…Read more >
I have a new theory on why Joel lied to Ellie at the end. There are several scenes early on in the game. When Joel and Ellie begin traveling with each other alone. After Tess, had died.
To understand the logic of this possible theory you, have to look at the earlier scenes.
1. After the Capital Building scene when we find out that Tess, is infected and decides to "sacrifice herself" for Joel and Ellie in those last moment. We can tell that this does bother Joel a lot about her decision to do this.Even though he knew she, was going to die from the infection. After both Joel and Ellie enter the hallway beyond the double doors. This is the first time in Ellie's mind that she lost someone apart from Riley's death.
By the time they exit the su…

iI know people have made other blogs about this, I thought I'd make my own anyways.
With the announcement of Uncharted 4, my guess is that ND's next game will be The Last of Us 2. After reading a few arguments about a Last of Us sequel, I started thinking about what Naughty Dog could do for a sequel. The biggest question is who the protagonist(s) will be. Many people got very attatched to Joel and Ellie, so they want the duo to come back. Other people want to explore other people's stories, such as Ish. Which would be better for the series?
In my opinion, there should be a new protagonist(s), as Joel and Ellie's story has already been told, they had their character development, and they completed their journey. There are so many possibliliti…Read more >
I been thinking about the ambiguity angle of the game. If you, look at the beginning after Sarah's death when the credits roll. When we first see Joel, wake up in his bed. Where it says 20 YEARS LATER
This is our first piece of ambiguity. Since we don't know what happen to Joel, during those 20 years. Another piece of ambiguity can be seen in the Tess character, what we do know is she did smuggling jobs with Joel...and that they may have had a relationship in the past. Apart from that we as the game player found nothing that points to her past.
Another ambiguous section is when Joel and Ellie find Tommy, at the Dam. And we discover he is now married. This opens up Five question(s) besides Maria, being Tommy's wife...(1.)What is her past…Read more >
I been thinking about the interpretation behind the poster in the Toy store which reads : FAILURE IS SUCCESS IF WE LEARN FROM IT.
One can argue that this has a double meaning pertaining to both Joel and Ellie growing closer to each other through out the story.
In reference to what it means to Joel as a person. In the beginning when he was younger he lost his daughter Sarah during the outbreak. And could not save her.He spent the better part of 20 years emotionally shutdown from everyone around him.
Then comes along this 14 year old girl. Who is an orpahan and has trouble trusting people. She is brash,irrational,Stubborn,reckless and sometimes even tells jokes to break the ice. In the beginning we see how both of them do not like each other...…

A DISSENTING OPINION ON TLoU ENDING, in four acts by Aleksandar Kuktin
Three main points: (1) Joel didn't lie to Ellie, (2) the Fireflies' scientists were attempting to study the cordyceps with no direct intent to produce a vaccine (and may have well caused the outbrake in the first place) and (3) Joel chose the best from both worlds: he saved Ellie while NOT jeopardizing the possibility of finding a cure/vaccine (because he can always find another and more ethical medical team).
Also: In the epilogue, Ellie is coming to terms that Fireflies are no different than other people she met. Various additional nuances are explored in the text.
First, I'd like to begin by stating that what follows is a rehash of my beliefs and understand…

Naughty Dogs is teamig up with Hollywood for a Movie Adaptation of (The Last of Us) according to many websites on the internet. The word is that both Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley will write the script. And be heavily involved in the production. Some websites are reporting that (Sam Raimi) may want to direct it.
As a fan I have my reservation on how well such a Phenomemal game as (The Last of Us) can make the crossover into a successful film. Due to the fact that most games that has ever been made into a movie. Did not do well with the fans and at the box office. In the past many such crossover movies lacked the right feel of emotions of the character's in these kind of films.

Book 14 Singularity which is found in the truck. At the end of the game. On the way back to Tommy's settlement in Jackson City. My theory why it is Ellie that finds the last comic.
As we play her. This comic reflects how Ellie not only sees Joel in a different light. But how she sees the end of her Journey. And something being taken from her.
I will break the last comic down line by line. To explain the ending to the game. Lets remember this is just a theory. Since we all know the game ended in so much ambiguity.
Let also remember Ellie is still a kid. And a kids mind processes things differently than an adults as a way to cope with tramatic events. The comics served as a way for Ellie to see the world that Joel lives in everyday...and to re…Read more >
After playing both games TLOU:Left Behind and the TLOU again. I been thinking about the that recorder Ellie finds by the helicopter in TLOU: Left Behind. With the female soldier on it dictating her feelings. Of guilt for leaving her friend Ellis who was infected. The recorder mentions that the female soldier gets 10 miles out before turning back around and staying.
Then does this mean Ellie that after what transpired between her and Joel....that she leaves Joel. After attacking him and taking his backpack with Marlene's recorders in it?? And while on her way to where ever she decides to go to. She stops and listens to the two recorders with Marlene's voice on it...and reads her medical journal.
Then she realizes that (The Fireflies) wanted …Read more >
I been thinking about the game. And the Unversity Scene. When Joel falls off the horse and is near the brink of death. I am just speculating.
But what if this was Joel's chance to stop running from his past. And be reunited with Sarah in heaven. And when Ellie sews Joel up. Which saves his life.
It is Ellie who winds up robbing Joel of his chance. And after the Winter Scene is over. And they reach Utah with that (giraffe) scene. When Ellie hands Joel back the picture of Sarah.
He replies to Ellie "I guess you, can't escape your past.Thank You." . That "Thank You" is not one like " Thank You. I am greatful to be alive.". It is actually the Opposite in fact. His own body language says it all.

I been thinking about the two scenes in the game. The Ranch Scene and The scene where Joel falls off the horse. On the brink of death.At the University before the Winter Scene.
I am just speculating. But maybe in this was Joel's chance to stop running from his past. And be reunited with Sarah in heaven. And when Ellie sewed Joel up which saved his life.
One could say by doing this. Essentially she winds up robbing Joel of that chance. By the time we, reach the UTAH Scene with the (giraffes). And Ellie hands Joel back the picture.
He replies: " I guess you, can't escape your past. Thank You. " . The words behind his "Thank You" Its not more like the kind of " Thank You. I am greatful to be a live." It actaully is the opposite.
