These vampires aren’t sparkly. They don’t brood over their lost humanity or hope to find some soul to love them in their existence of eternal darkness. No, the vampires of Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain mostly just drain the life out of you and leave you a desiccated shell that will … Continue reading
On Thursday night at the Playstation Launch Event on Spike, Naughty Dog (also known as “the best bloody game developer on God’s green earth”… or at least they should be) revealed new single player downloadable content (DLC) for their recent opus The Last of Us. The Last of Us (which we will be putting up a review of as soon as possible) is a survival horror game set in an America 20 years after a fungal parasite infects humanity, causing the collapse of civilization as we know it. The new DLC, which is called The Last of Us: Left Behind, focuses on the game’s teenage female lead, Ellie, in a story that takes place before the main game. Though you play as Ellie throughout the DLC, she is joined by her best friend Riley, who was mentioned in the main game and is also featured in the comic book prequel to the series from Dark Horse, called The Last of Us: American Dreams. The official press release from Naughty Dog says:
“Ellie returns as new light is shed on her relationship with Riley, her best friend from the military boarding school they both grew up in. After inexplicably disappearing for weeks, Riley reemerges in Ellie’s life with a surprising revelation. The two sneak out of their school for the last time, leading to a series of events that will forever change both of their lives.
Naughty Dog continues to explore the themes of survival, loyalty, and love in their first ever single player DLC with The Last of Us: Left Behind.”
Left Behind will be available in early 2014 for $14.99, or as part of the season’s pass, which gives you all DLC for the game as it comes out, and can be purchased for $19.99 (which obviously feels like the better deal).

First things first: It should be called “I, Frankenstein’s Monster”. There, I got it out of my system. I really don’t know how I feel about this. On the one hand I do really like Aaron Eckhart and Bill Nighy. On the other hand, they appear to be trying to … Continue reading
