“The Last Of Us Remastered” announced for PS4…Great!

It’s official! The Last Of Us will be released in a “remastered” form for PS4!

That was good news, specially for PS4 owners who didn’t get the chance to play The Last Of Us on PS3. It’s also good news for those who played The Last Of Us on PS3 and want to live this amazing adventure one more time on a next-gen console. The Last Of Us was a beautiful unique game that deserves to be on next-gen. 

Although this is very good news, some people are upset and I can’t find a reasonable explanation for that. I read some comments and articles about this and some people think that releasing The Last Of Us for PS4 is “a waste of time and money”. They also think that “the game was already great on PS3”.

What? Can’t a game be released again on another console? I know that it already looked great on PS3 but it will definitely look greater on PS4, like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. If you enjoyed The Last Of Us on PS3, then why don’t you let other people enjoy it on PS4?

Anyway, releasing The Last Of Us (A.K.A. one of the greatest games ever!!) for PS4 is a huge step for Sony in this “next-gen battle”.

However, we still want a sequel. Come on, Naughty Dog! You created a great game and you’re still thinking whether you should make a sequel or not?! I’m very happy with this amazingly good news! But I will be even more happy when I hear that Naughty Dog is considering making a sequel.  

Anyway, we should thank Naughty Dog and Sony for this because most of us wanted to hear this months ago.

Thief could have been much better.

Thief (sometimes referred to as Thief 4), which is a reboot of the Thief series, came out this year in February. I learned that fans were disappointed. I didn’t play any of the first three Thief games but I did play the reboot (the fourth) and it could have been much better than this.

First of all, the first-person mode wasn’t comfortable. I’m controlling a thief, I need to see his body, specially with the shadows thing. Controlling Garrett while seeing his body would have made it easier and better.

Another thing is; the freerunning. In Assassin’s Creed, you can climb almost every structure, but in Thief, Garrett the professional thief can’t climb almost every structure! Though, I do admire the swoop ability.

One of the most annoying things was the lack of weapons. This Blackjack isn’t enough. What kind of thief who steals forks doesn’t have a dagger at least. I know that you can finish the game without killing any guard but sometimes the best way to reach some destination requires killing one guard who will detect you and engage in combat. At this point, this Blackjack isn’t useful at all.

The last thing (I can think of now) is Garrett’s terrible voice acting. It’s very flat and lame.

The game is fun with a lot of amazing abilities. The stealth is great. The Focus ability is very helpful. The environment is great. But there are some things that could have made Thief meet the fans’ expectations and even impress them.

If you have the game, don’t give up on it and take good care of it because…What’s yours is mine!
