The Last of Us - Video Game and Comic Book Prequel Preview!

Just one more week until the June 14th release of The Last of Us, exclusively on PS3. Did I finally, recently buy a Playstation in anticipation of this game? You bet I did!

The Last of Us is a unique horror / action / adventure / survival game that has you trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world against desperate and dangerous humans that remain 20 years after a massive infection wiped out millions of people in a "zombie" type scenario.

Infected humans are dangerous, but the remaining humans are even more dangerous. Surviving on your own is one thing, but when you have a 13 year old girl in your care as cargo to be smuggled out of the city, things are even more difficult. 

I COULD tell ya all the details of the game, or you could just watch the video I made below for all the info, some preview footage, comic book stuff, and some of my favorite zombie games to date.

 

 

 

Man, I can't wait! I anticipate several long nights of eating pizza in the dark and getting sauce all over my controller in the near future.... but in the meantime, I have The Last of Us: American Dreams comic book to keep me at bay.

 

This 4 issue, comic book exclusive prequel to the new game by Naughty Dog, follows Ellie's life in the violent, post-pandemic world... which is the only world she's ever known.

A newcomer at a military boarding school, Ellie is reluctant to conform, which makes her some new enemies... and perhaps even a friend who will show her a glimpse of the world outside..

 

Its been a good book so far, with nice artwork. Fans of the game surely would like to add it to their collection.

UPDATE: Got my copy of The Last of Us and it's super fun time awesome! It's been a while since I played a game and have been "afraid" to explore certain nooks and crannies. Has that ever happened to you? Realize youre scared of being surprised and attacked only to realize its just a game!? Heh!

What do you think of The Last of Us? Did you run out and get it when it game out? Are you waiting to get it cheap and used? That's usually my thang. I want to hear from ya, leave a message.
