I'm a little leery of Last of Us because, although it is a Naughty Dog game, it's yet another Zombie game. I never cared for the genre, now it's been beaten to death and it still keeps rising. Deserves a Dead Horse Award.
Rewatched the Nintendo press on. I was wrong it wasn't lackluster. It was corporate suicide. They were going after a market that no longer exists. They're thinking they can recapture the Wii magic, but they won't. Everyone who has a Wii for the sports games already has it for the games. And unlike us, are quite happy to stick with the aging hardware. And worse, if they do expand, they'll be looking to their smart phones, because that hardware has multiple functions, which is convenient. And that's what the casual market wants. Something light, easy and convenient.
Yet we KNOW that dedicated games are coming to it. Darksiders II, Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed 3, all games that we gamers are interested in. But there was no mentioned them. Even the 3DS got shafted in the presentation. Instead we got "Nintendoland".
Hell, at the end of the press con, all the journalists didn't believe it was over, they expected more (you could see it, none of them actually moved out of their seats), but nope that was it. In fact no one moved for more than ten seconds, but if you watch the EA, or Sony , or MS, or even the Ubisoft one, they were half way out when it was over, all hurrying to report what they saw. Not here.
That was... Incredible. I'm shocked I didn't see it, the first time! I guess it was because I didn't get much sleep the night before. I guess.
