  • Blog Post: Test Chamber — The Last of Us Remastered Edition

    Last year, Naughty Dog released The Last of Us, a post-apocalyptic survival game that didn't pull any punches. Not only was the game's crafting system and combat were highly engrossing, but it's story still resonates with players even a year later. Not surprisingly, this survival tale looks... More
  • Blog Post: Video Recap - Sony's 2014 Press Conference

    Last year's press conference from Sony was a blow-out , so the expectations were high for last night's show.

  • Blog Post: Looking Toward The Horizon

    For publishers and developers, it used to be so much simpler. You selected your target platforms, created the games, and released them to brick and mortar retail stores.

    We took a look at Naughty Dog's inaugural Jak & Daxter title a few years ago , and while logic would dictate we look at the sequel next, we decided to jump ahead to Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier – the sixth installment in this series' chronology. Most people, many Game Informer... More
  • Blog Post: Casting Call – The Last Of Us

    Last week, we reported on Screen Gems' upcoming adaptation of our 2013 Game of the Year, The Last of Us. We'll keep our fingers crossed and hope that it breaks out of the standard "video game movie" level of quality, but time will tell. In the meantime, here are our picks for the cast... More

    Today the news broke that Naughty Dog's acclaimed writer and creative director Amy Hennig has left the company .

  • Blog Post: Wish List – A New Jak And Daxter

    One of my favorite series from the PlayStation 2 era of consoles was Naughty Dog’s Jak and Daxter. The developer has no announced plans to create a new entry in the franchise, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share our hopes for a return to the open-world platformer. More Jumping The... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Younger Characters Are Making A Stronger Impact

    Adolescence is a time of conflicting emotions. One minute life is carefree, and then growing up rears its ugly head, dealing hard lessons. Young teenagers are just starting to realize who they are, and they're far off from figuring it out. Coming-of-age stories remain some of the most popular and... More
  • Blog Post: Contemplating The Ending Of The Last Of Us

    I suspect that Naughty Dog's The Last of Us is going to be many people's game of the year. It's certainly mine. It's an experience that has stayed with me long after I finished it. In the months that have passed since it released, I've continued to think about the game's ambivalent... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Important Female Characters Weren’t Marketed Well This Year

    Originally, I intended to write a feature on the defining female characters of 2013. Unfortunately, when I started compiling my list, I realized this wasn’t a great year for female characters. I could barely come up with five that I felt confident about, but two stood out the most: BioShock Infinite’s... More

    If you’ve finished up Naugthy Dog’s superb The Last of Us, and still hunger for more adventures set in that universe, check out the recent The Last of Us comic books, which are a surprisingly decent read. Dark Horse recently released a four issue miniseries based on Naughty Dog's The... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion – Ambiguous Endings Shouldn’t Be Feared

    Video game storytelling has grown tremendously. In less than 40 years, we've gone from two ping-pong paddles and a ball to full-blown narratives, multidimensional characters, and complex themes. I love watching people dissect modern games and come away with different interpretations, and that developers... More
  • Blog Post: From Elika To Ellie: Comparing Prince Of Persia And The Last Of Us

    I’ve made it clear that I am a big fan of the 2008 Prince of Persia . It’s a fantastically underrated game, so ahead of its time that I think some people maybe weren’t ready for it, or just didn’t get it. Or, they didn’t like it, which is fine, too. Naughty Dog’s recently... More
  • Blog Post: Why Naughty Dog Can't Make A Sequel To The Last Of Us

    I beat The Last of Us a couple weeks ago, but that adventure is still ringing through my head like a brass bell. The game easily sits on my list of the five greatest games from this generation, and yet, I don't think I want to see a sequel. (The following is spoiler free. But if you want The Last... More

  • Blog Post: Spoiled – The Last Of Us

    The Last of Us turned out to be one of this generation's finest video games. The intense gameplay couples with the grounded, believable characters to deliver an impacting post-apocalyptic adventure from beginning to end.

  • Blog Post: From Daxter To Delsin: The Work Of Infamous Second Son's Animation Director

    Every game is informed by those that have come before it. Animation director Billy Harper has some stellar titles on his resume, which inspired his current work on Infamous Second Son.

  • Blog Post: Places: Rub' al Khali Desert In Uncharted 3

    The empty footprints in the sand trailing after Nathan Drake are only the beginning, as he trudges away from the fallen plane he barely survived.
