E3 2012: The Last Of Us Gameplay


Naughty Dog was on deck to demo The Last of Us, which feels like a grown-up version of Uncharted. Not that Uncharted isn’t grown up, but The Last of Us can be downright vicious. The realistic fight scene stretched over several rooms, starting with the main characters trying to stealth, but then being forced into battle.

[PS3 Review] Jak and Daxter HD Collection

Everyone hates HD collections until the one series they love comes along and then suddenly their attitude changes. For quite a while now, I have refrained from buying any HD collections because I viewed them as a cheap tactic to earn a few bucks. I passed on the God of War remakes, I didn’t even bat an eye at the Tomb Raider games, and in the end, even the Team ICO collection didn’t sway my stance. However, the Jak and Daxter HD collection is the series that finally won me over and made me rethink my views on the situation.

When I first started replaying the games, my biggest fear was that my nostalgic childhood bias had lead me astray, and I would realize the games really weren’t that good (or worse, were just plain horrible). Thankfully, I was completely and utterly wrong. The Jak and Daxter HD collection is what every HD collection and reboot so far should have been. It contains three fantastic games, a true HD upgrade, trophies, and a low price. The games have racing, platforming, shooting, exploring-something for everyone.

If you’ve never played the games before (and there is really no good reason to have EVER passed them up if you owned a PS2), now is your chance to jump on board and trek through the story. The Jak and Daxter series creates incredible worlds and fills them with lovable and quirky characters. They all have that unique and illusive quality to them that makes you remember the games years later.
