Hey everyone, LIFE here back from the dead! I know this review of The Last of Us is way late (see Kaushik’s review here), but I had to actually play through the game. Then I had to go back and play it through for the 100% completion on the hardest difficulty. So months after the game released here is my review for it.

Cover Picture

Starting off with the presentation of the game, developer Naughty Dog introduces you to an unbroken, uninfected world with Joel and his daughter Sarah. After 30 minutes of playing and watching scenes you are then brought to the cold, hard world of survival where the story starts to unfold. Joel is now accompanied by Ellie, an orphan (I won’t spoil anything, but you can probably guess what happened to Sarah). The dynamic between Joel and Ellie really drove the story, and I can honestly say they are some of the strongest leads in video games to date. Continue reading »

New York Comic Con 2012. Bright lights. Flashy cosplays. Awesome video games. What else can ya ask for?

Unfortunately, I was only able to attend Saturday, but I still was able to get a great experience. I have to say, the first thing I noticed was that unlike last year, the con seemed a bit more organized. Sure there was a lot of waiting to get inside, but it just seemed to flow better (which was a good thing, since Saturday’s are always the worst).

*WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD*

This past Sunday was the season finale of Game of Thrones. What did I think of it you ask? Well let me tell you. I am going to start out with the very end. Having read the first 3 books I was very pleased with what they have done so far. The ending of this season finale was quite well done and I loved the way they depicted the white walkers. The stone cold look and the chilling physical appearance left me wanting more from this episode, but sadly, I will have to wait. Continue reading »
