The task ahead of Naughty Dog was challenging indeed. Only after a few false starts were they able to hit the right notes in telling the present-day story of Ellie's frantic search for medical supplies to treat Joel, and the flashback story of Ellie's last hours with her best friend, Riley. In fleshing out Ellie's backstory, Naughty Dog illuminates her motivations and worldview. We come to understand the origins of Ellie's dogged devotion to the people who are close to her, and her drive to make it to the Fireflies so she can contribute to the production of a potential remedy for the brain infection that led to an apocalyptic pandemic.
Three weeks before Ellie meets Joel, Riley is the most important person in her life. Post a comment 24 interactions. She discovers a medical kit in a derelict military helicopter. Making her way back to Joel, Ellie is impeded by the Infected and members of a hostile human group.
She fights her way back to the unconscious Joel, treats his open wound, and takes him to find a hideout for the coming winter. She reveals that she has joined the Fireflies, a revolutionary militia group, and takes Ellie to explore an abandoned shopping mall.
Riley reveals that she has been assigned to a group of Fireflies in a different city, and broke the rules to see Ellie again. The girls argue, but Ellie eventually tells her that she supports her decision as it is something that Riley has wanted for a long time.
Before parting, Riley plugs Ellie's Walkman into the sound system and dances with her. Ellie tearfully begs Riley not to leave. Riley rips her dog tags off and Ellie kisses her. Drawn by the noise, the Infected pursue Ellie and Riley; they run, but are bitten.
They consider suicide, but choose to spend their final hours together. In addition, they found that some players were interested in the events that occurred between the Fall and Winter segments of the main game, in which Ellie cares for an injured Joel. This led to the team deciding to contrast these two events against each other, feeling it would help the story's pacing. Game director Bruce Straley said that the team felt the story justified the development of Left Behind.
Seemingly safe, she also tries to get inside until a wave of reinforcements interrupts her. In a last stand, Ellie kills the cannibals one by one, with some unwitting help from the Infected attracted by the sounds of the fight. Once finally safe Ellie gets back to Joel and treats his open wound.
Back in the past Ellie and Riley desperately attempt to escape from the Runners in the mall. But only until the creators decide to make your time in the game It's Valentine's Day. Shops are full of chocolate hearts, teddy bears, and flowers. Anyway, what plans do you have for tonight? Playing video games? Oh, no! Today is the time for a date! We live in a remastered world that surrounds us with revised versions of movies, new editions of well-known music CDs and games whose core versions have just been released a moment before.
Are we the Generation R? All logos and images are copyrighted by their respective owners. Game Guides. I've spent hours just trying to process everything I've played, coming to terms with its densely packed story, and discovering new avenues of appreciation for its craft.
What I'm trying to say is that The Last of Us Part 2 is exceptional, and quite possibly the best game I've played this generation. As a heads up, this review is completely spoiler free , so I won't be discussing any plot details outside of what Naughty Dog has already shown so far. If 's The Last of Us was a road trip turned twisted coming of age story, The Last of Us Part 2 is its revenge western companion piece.
Set five years after the events of her pan-American odyssey with Joel, an indescribably traumatic opening episode leaves Ellie hellbent on a crusade to hunt down those responsible for a seemingly unforgivable crime. This pursuit takes our teenage heroine away from the rural pastures of Jackson County and deep into the urban overgrowth of Seattle, a city that experienced a very different kind of societal breakdown to The Last of Us' Boston, and thus poses its own unique threats to Ellie's survival.
