Couldn't find a copy anywhere this week.. finally decided to download off PSN. Only took about an hour and a half to download. Thought I'd have to leave it going all day.

Ready to start!!!

I get kicked from one game and I go from a completely healthy colony to all but 8 sick or hungry. Absolute ********.

Just beat it. What a fantastic game. As the father of two daughters, including one who is 12 that really tugged at the heartstrings. Didn't expect that ending.

Just got to Winter

Spoil:
Holy **** I thought Joel was dead for a couple minutes there. Still don't have confirmation he's alive but Ellie just said she needs antibiotics so I'm assuming he is, had to take a break there.

They did a great job keeping the fact that you eventually play as Ellie under wraps, I had no idea.

I can't believe how ballsy that ending was. I was sure at least one of them was going to die, and what they ended up doing was even more shocking than that. *******.

Favorite part had to be the winter section, playing as Ellie in the resort town. So intense. And to think you spend the previous chapter fighting alongside that David? creep. So good.

Almost 6 hours of play time and I just got to Fall. Are Fall/Winter/Spring as long/longer than Summer?

Summer felt like it took a long, long time. Not complaining at all, just excited this game is looking like it will crack 20 hours for me.

The other three are far shorter, but IMO, all better than Summer.

Only 2 hours played, damn this game is hard, how do you kill more than 1 infected when you get attacked by 3 or 4? I die alot.

Anyway, this is shaping up to be the best game I ever played, or close to it. Bioshock Infinite and the last two Uncharted games are the other 3.

These are the emotions I've been through with so little time played....

Basically it's impossible to take out multiple clickers without bombs or molotovs. Avoid them whenever possible.

Maxed out Shiv Master with full shivs. Just start chain killing all of them.

You learn pretty quickly which infected you can easily stealth kill and which you can't.

Either stealth around clickers or shiv them. Early in the game, without upgraded shivs, it is often better to avoid. However early in the game it is also easy to clear out a entire room of clickers with a well placed molotov. Remember that clickers come running towards the sound of a molotov breaking.

At the higher difficulties a brick/bottle to the face and a single smack with a melee weapon becomes your go to combo due to lack of ammo.

That was awesome!

How close to the end am I? I am hoping to finish the campaign tonight.

Spoil:
I'm running around in the white out with Ellie.


I know I am getting close. I need to finish it. It is too distracting to have it hanging over my head at work.

This game is even better than advertised. I haven't been this hooked on a game, haven't had this 'just one more section' feeling, in years, maybe even decades. It feels like the first time I played Ocarina of Time.

You're pretty close, I'd say 2 hours max depending on how long it takes you to get out of the ski resort, which can be pretty tricky. Enjoy it!

The main downer about finishing the game is I don't have anything to look forward to until Splinter Cell in August!

Didn't finish it last night as I had hoped. There was this hockey game on that was a little distracting.

I am so close. I am...


Spoil:
...in the Firefly's hospital. I just woke up after being knocked out, and am trying to get to Ellie. Frankly, I am a little disappointed with this section. The runnin and gunnin is my least favourite part of this game (the same way Uncharted's running and gunning bored me).

And did anybody else think "well ****ing duh!", when they told Joel they were about to slice up Ellie for medical research? I mean, WTF did Joel (and Ellie) think was going to happen?! She would just give a blood sample and that would be the end of it? I rolled my eyes hard when Joel got pissed about that...though I haven't finished, so I am hopeful it won't end on such a predictable note.

Literally every store that sells video games near me is still out of stock.
I just called 8 places this morning.

This is frustrating.
