Save your money

Play your backlog

Buy it for (hopefully) considerably cheaper in a couple of months

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Have a hard time paying full price for a game no matter how much I want it because I know it'll be $20 in six months.

6 months? For a Naughty Dog game? You're looking at probably about a year, maybe longer if they don't release a GOTY edition.

Nothing wrong with waiting though - especially if you have a back log.

Get yourself a turtle beach (or similar) headphone that plugs in through the optical out. I have the turtle beach X11 and while it's more meant for xbox and PC still works great with the PS3.

And I can play my games full volume without waking up the wife and baby...actually my wife complains that the clacking of the thumbsticks and buttons are too loud but you win some and lose some lol

I'm not really the console gamer of the house. This is my 2nd purchase, the other being Red Dead Redemption. The optical out already goes to a sub/speaker unit anyways. Just seems kind of shortsighted to not include an ultra cheap 3.5 jack.

My local GameStop is incompetent. On a release day of a game that is anticipated to be game of the year, they have one person working. Probably won't be able to play this game till tomorrow night.

AI was very wonky in one specific part. Felt like they couldn't see me at all. But ever since that one part it's been pretty good again.

Drove half hour with a friend to pick it up at midnight release. They told me I hadnt pre-ordered it, yet I show them the email on my phone saying I did. I had to argue 15 mins until the manager came over and said just sell it to me. I figured an email from gamestop saying I preordered would of been enough.

Played it for about three hours before I left for work, definitely am not feeling the hype.

About 2 and a half hours in and loving it. This game kicks ass. The opening scene is deadly.

Hrm. Well the cinematics are top notch and the story has been decent so far. Gameplay is okay, the AI is just a bit off to me. (Just trying to leave the Capital building)

I can agree with that.

Its Uncharted, with zombie type things and a shoddy crafting system.

Story/Atmosphere/Graphics are great tho.

I've never been a big fan of the gameplay Naughty Dog does it always feels very janky to me. I do agree that the atmopshere/music/tones are great the story is very meh so far.

Story definitely more interesting than Uncharted 1.

If it's anything like Uncharted, it'll go on sale fast. Singleplayer (action) games often do.

On sale, maybe. But not to $19.99, maybe $39.99. Uncharted 3 was about 1 week away from a year of release before it dropped to $19.99. And that's only because they released the GOTY edition.

Uncharted 2 and 3 had huge multiplayer fanbases too. I'm not sure if The Last of Us will, but it's got the option there.

I wish this game was about 2508258029452390 hours longer.

I'm about 50% done the story and having an amazing time.

This game ****ing rules.

Ellie, Joel, Tess, Sarah ... I love you all!

PS. Got some awesome Naughty Dog stickers inside the game.. Need to figure out where to put them! Probably one on my beer fridge and then I don't know about the other.
