The Last Of Us

I've been pretty busy these last few weeks, while at the same time trying my best to take some time off.

Apparently, time off is a good thing. Time off is necessary. We released The Maleficent Seven at the start of the year, and we're gearing up to the release of Last Stand of Dead Men in EXACTLY one month's time. That's two books out in the same year, one written straight after the other, not to mention one or two other short stories for various things yet to be announced. So I've pretty much been working nonstop since November of 2012. Wow. When I say it like that, I suddenly start to feel very tired...

I'm still waiting to hear back from Harper Collins on things like the back cover reveal, and possibly putting up a sample chapter or two. I also need to pick a date for a VERY informal reader get-together in Dublin over the next few weeks. When I said I'd do this back in April I had no idea I'd be so busy, so hopefully I'll still be able to fit it in. Oh, and in a matter of days I'll be posting the tour schedule for LSODM, which will be kicking off at the Edinburgh Book Festival on August 25th- where copies of the new book WILL be on sale.

I normally HATE early releases, but seeing as how it's only a difference of four days PLUS the fact that the Edinburgh audience never reveal spoilers, I don't mind this at all.

Er... I think I've strayed from the point of this Blog entry... what was it again?

Yes! Time off! That's it!

So, I haven't ACTUALLY been able to take any time off, but then I've never been one for taking holidays. However, I have managed to watch a few movies in the evenings, and watch a few TV shows to relax, and to play a few video games. And THAT is the point of this Blog entry.

Over the past few months, I've played two very good games. Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider. I've talked about these games in an earlier post. Of the two, I preferred Tomb Raider. It just felt more visceral. The gameplay was excellent, the atmosphere was amazing, and the tension was nerve-shredding. But apart from all that, it was the character work that stood out. Tiny emotions flickering across Lara Croft's face, paired with such wonderful voice acting, meant that I really cared about her. I liked her, and I didn't want anything bad to happen to her. In contrast to the gritty, naturalistic world of Tomb Raider, Bioshock was hugely imaginative fun with great gameplay, stunning visuals, and a great supporting character. The best supporting character in video games, I reckoned.

And then came The Last Of Us.

The Last Of Us is survival horror. 20 years after the outbreak of a fungal virus that latches onto a person's mind and drives them insane, the world is in ruins. Survivors gather in quarantined cities. Life is miserable. Life is cheap. Death is quick, cruel, and common. But outside the walls of the cities, it's even worse. That's where the Infected roam.

(A fungal virus sounds pretty laughable, right? Type 'Cordyceps' in to any search engine. Read up on what it does to ants. Now imagine what it'd do to people.)

You control Joel, a man in his 50s who has to escort Ellie, a 14 year old girl, across America. They go from city to town to suburb to countryside to mountains, and not only do they have to avoid the Infected, they have to avoid most of the other survivors as well. Because these are NOT nice people.

This is a game that combines the best elements of both Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite. The world is grim and gritty but so, so beautiful. Lush greenery spills up from cracked cement. The sky is a million shades of orange at dusk. But the action is brutal. And the supporting character is astonishing.

Play this game for a few hours and you'll start to really care about Joel and Ellie. Play it for a few hours more and you'll find yourself terrified. You'll hear the clicking of the Infected around you as you crouch in the darkness, and you'll freeze in fear. Why? Because you want to keep Ellie safe. That's ALL you'll care about.

This is one of the best games I've ever played. Is it the most fun? No, that'd probably go to one of the Uncharted games, just for sheer entertainment. But this is definitely the scariest, the most tense, and the most involving. It sucks you in and it doesn't let you go. This is a masterpiece of gaming that will be used as a benchmark for all games that come after, and as a piece of storytelling it succeeds where so many other stories fail.

It's brilliant. If you're over 18, then ready yourself, and go play it.

HI ZAF! :)

I will be getting LSODM very very late.

I think my parents finally ordered TMS, though. Or, uh, the tooth fairy did. :-)

I dedicate this page to old blogger friends and new blogger hope-to-be-friends.

I also dedicate this page to Kallista for being the wonderful person she is, and for coming up with the dedication idea in the first place.

I also dedicate this page to Mr. Landy because he's always a good stock idea to fall back on, when you haven't many ideas.

And finally I dedicate this page to something random like passion fruits and the War of Austrian Succession.

Actually that's a terrible thing to dedicate to, but sometimes you make bad life choices.

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

@Octa: Awesome! I hope you get to attend, then! :)
Chances are, I'll be getting LSoDM late - I still haven't managed to get hold of Kingdom of the Wicked or TMS yet. :P


@Star: YAY! :)

@Adra: That's odd. (I think. I've never uploaded a video, so I wouldn't know) :/

I hope the three hours pass quickly for you. :)

Hi Duck!
*laughs* I've heard a lot about its goodness, too. :3

Will be distant, because picking out random phrases or half-sentences and then just following on from them in a freewriting-y kind of way, because I don't know what else to write. And my brain comes up with odd things when I do that. :P

I don't actually know that many people who play video games...
Huh.

And no, I don't, sorry.

#ChaseForBook9

Noelle said...

I DOOO

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

I don't, Octa!
But I have been meaning to!
And apparently there are books worth reading, there, too.

I need to catch up with everything I've been meaning to do. :P

Have you seen this video?

@ Taia

Yes, the book series is called A Song Of Fire and Ice and they are incredible books. But very long. There are 5 so far with two more planned.

The third book (second longest book in the series) is the same length as the ENTIRE Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Octa said...

@ Adra

Yes, yes I am.

Noelle said...

KILA!!


And good, Octa. It is kinda awesome

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

@Octa: Wow. I'd heard they're long, but wow. Epica. :)

@Adra: Now I'm curious about your YouTube channel... :P


#ChaseForBook9

Noelle said...

My you tube channel is so fucking epic.

*pauses*

.... Flupping

Taia, Raisin, A Good Bear (actually undead) :) said...

My first between-five-and-ten-minutes' freewriting went like this:

‘The most characteristic of all calls is a descending series of’ pineapples, (descending in size, of course), and it’s odd, because as [accidentally spelled with two ‘S’s :P ] the fruits grow bigger, their spikes seem to become smaller, or at least less sharp, so you could end up with a sort of huge fruit and spikes that aren’t really spikes at all, or a microscopic pineapple with spines that could cut through diamonds, or even determination.
But that makes me wonder – would oranges get rounder as their sizes decrease? Or as they increase? Because maybe the increase of size adds more imperfections, or maybe maturity takes them away. It’s hard to say which could be true, if either. Or both.
I think I’ll go with both, like lightbulbs and windows. They both bring light onto a room, but not necessarily in the same way. One creates it, while the other acts as a conduit of sorts for another source. Which isn’t really the same thing, but there you go.

:P

#ChaseForBook9

Octa said...

NO WHY WOULD YOU PUT THAT VIDEO ABOUT FRED AND GEORGE IN THERE?

Octa said...

Nope, nope nope.

Octa said...

Hey, I like your position on windows and lightbulbs.

Fabi -- The killer that sends heart emojis at everyone and hasn't actually killed anyone yet / fashion-conscious fire wraith said...

I have to go now, sorry.

Actually, I already left, but I'm back to leave again, but politely inform you of my impending absence.

And spoil the effect of that by telling you about it, too! XD

@Adra: What I /mean/ is I need to sort out my subscriptions, because the number's getting to high, and I like it to be relatively low, for the most part. So if I add you /now/, I may accidentally delete you again when I do that.
It's easier to wait. :P

Ho Death! Hi Saph! Hi Fabi! So, erm, what've I missed?

Death; Uh. You could say that. Alex is my best friend (annoying as he is)

Saph- the OpenID option.

Dean said...

Well, nothing much... If anyone asks, I'm not here. I'm supposed to be deleting my posts and disappearing and that's totally happening.

Hi Adra! *tacklehugs*

*was reading previous comments and is perfectly happy to discuss Zeppelin*

Sapphire Iota (S/ Cam) said...

Kes; Smart :) I'm probably not the best person to say what's been going on. I'm not on here half the time, and I'm currently preparing to kill/hug Alex (I haven't decided which yet)

Hello Death, Adra, Saph, Alex, Jubi, Kes.

Nice to meet you Alex.

Kes, there's been a lot of roleplaying. Not much else, I guess.
