      Yup once the power came back on . It was just some cutscenes.
      Damn is there a trophy glitch I played on HARD and I dont think I got a single one other than for finishing the game.
      With the DLC I really hope they continue the segment from intro. Want the DLC to be the early days.

      Took me 15 hours and 44 minutes found 101 collectibles.

        Yeah it is a glitch, I beat the game first time on normal and never received the trophy for beating on easy too.
        Also regarding your twitter comment. Now you have beat the game, Survivor mode is unlocked and that also has New Game+. I'm currently halfway through my run of that. Oh and when I beat the game on Survivor the first time, it did then unlock the other trophies.

    I'm 63% complete. Currently at the Power Plant place. Really love this game. Like Brook said though it's probably not a game I would want to play more than once like I did with Uncharted but I am going to because I want them trophies. Plus I can't think of any other major game coming out now until GTA V drops soooooo I might as well beat it again.

    So first impressions then people?

    Honestly, I love it. I expected to and right now it hasn't disappointed.

    It probably has one of the best opening sections of a game I have played in a long time.

    I feel like Naughty Dog really nailed the survival aspects. I constantly feel at a disadvantage when going against the infected. So I have to find other ways and means to take them out or avoid them instead of going in Power Ranger style.

    The game looks gorgeous running on this outdated hardware. The attention to detail is astonishing. The world is immersive and the atmosphere is tense.

    I'm excited about where the story is leading amd I hope there are a few more surprises in store.

    On the flipside though, i basically get the feeling that The Last of Us is the videogame version of that movie The Road. Even though I thought that movie was good, I remember also feeling super depressed after watching it because it was so dark and bleak. I hope I don't get that feeling once I beat this game because It's been made for multiple playthroughs.

    We shall see. Overall though I'm hapoy with it and I think Naughty Dog have once again proved themselves as the best studio of this generation.

    Oh, not feeling the multiplayer.

      The game is fun and has its moments but I think these reviewers went overboard with the 10/10 shit. Graphics wise it looks good but I wouldn't say its anything near a leap over uncharted 3 or anything like that. Its still graphically in the realm of uncharted games. Shit... put in infamous 2 back in and look at that game. That game looks in the ream of this. Tomb Raider and bioshock infinite on my PC blew this shit out of the water by far in terms of graphics so they really should not be touting that graphical shit at all. I see pop in and also jaggies all day in this and the framerate is uneven with too much motion blur. Try swinging the camera around to see what im saying. So far the game is interesting but it has quite a few gameplay mechanic issues and ai bugs as well. So far its really good though but not sure its great per se.

      Also this shit is $45 bucks on newegg via ebay new right now.

        Yeah but dude, c'mon man, this is 7 year old hardware. You can't expect it to be running in 1080p and a constant 60fps. There are going to be issues just like any other console game.

        I think judging the graphics based on what you can get on PC is extremely unfair because you are comparing a game released this year and running on super old hardware to 2 other games released this year and running on the latest processors and graphics cards.

        Also, how can you even have a step up over Uncharted 3? That game was pushing the PS3 to the limits anyway but what I like about The Last of Us is that it's not all about spectacle and big set pieces. It's the subtle things that make it special.

        I think the game looks awesome. The character models, lighting, the animation of the infected. Makes it a more believable and immersive world. The graphics are dope for consoles so I think them praising the graphics is well and truly justified because you can't get this game on PC so there is no comparison to which is the superior version. Taking everything into consideration, this is as good as it gets on consoles really, and that is a major acheivement considering the outdated hardware.

        Don't get me wrong. It's not a perfect game. Load times are a nuisance for one thing but it's still head and shoulders above lots of games being released at the moment.

          My point is people shouldnt be touting about how good it looks as is if thats a major selling point. There has been quite a few games with the same visual fidelity even on consoles. Metal gear solid rising on consoles looks great and at 60fps and they werent going around touting that as a huge thing.

          Yes, Last of Us looks really good. To those playing games at a higher fidelity these games just dont have that wow. Sorry. Thats just the reality. Thats like saying the speed of that Honda is AMAZING and fast as hell to those who been in a Porsche. They need to stop with all this "it looks awesome" crap. Yes, it looks really good but people hype everything up way to much when a game is new. Compared to the games out there it looks really good but its not a technical achievement or setting any bars to be talking all that "OMFG THEM GRAPIX DAT ASS!" nonsense. There are ps3 games within the last few years that can compete on a graphical level by other studios like Max Payne 3, MGS4, Infamous 2 and God of War 3.

          There is nothing revolutionary about anything in the game lets keep it real. Its far from a perfect game but im having fun playing though it and thats mostly because of the story and setting.

      It's going to be interesting. On the one hand I'm like they have got to have a brand new Uncharted game. They need an Uncharted game for PS4 to be shown and everyone will go nuts.

      But then on the other hand I'm thinking, The Last of Us drops on friday. It's getting all these great reviews, do they really want to take away the interest and hype surrounding it by announcing something new?

      We'll see what happens.
