As long as I get 50% commision then no problem.
I actually have a job lot of PC control pads to list on eBay and put on my Acegadgets website during my few hours of free time on Sunday. Might put a link on here. Which gives me an idea. How about a swap shop / items for sale thread?

I like the idea of swap shops but they seem to fall flat. Need to ebay some stuff of my own.

The Last of Us development series, episode 1: Hush

A few weeks ago we revealed the Infected and let select media get some hands-on time against these unpredictable, fungus-infested humans. The responses were tension-filled and fantastic. We’re excited to share more information with you about The Last of Us and the Infected.


Starting with this video we’re kicking off a series that will pull back the curtain on the design, the technology, and the ideas that shape The Last of Us. We want to give you a straightforward look at our development process and the work we do here at Naughty Dog.

We invited Area 5 to visit the studio and capture the development process. Along the way we’ll be unpacking the many different aspects of the game and its development with a documentarian’s approach.

This first video is just a taste of what’s coming up. Extended cuts of these videos will be available via the game disc. We’ll have more behind-the-scenes access and content as we march towards 14th June and the launch of The Last of Us.

The Last of Us development series episode 2: Wasteland Beautiful

In our first video in The Last of Us development series we took a look at the Infected. We explored their unpredictable nature, what the Cordyceps fungus has done to these humans, and how we as developers worked some plausible science about infection into the game.
Area 5 returned to the studio to discover how we created the game world. The second video in the series looks at what went into the concept and design of the world and its environments in The Last of Us. Check it out:


The key word for the development of every aspect in The Last of Us is contrast. There’s a counterpoint to nearly every detail in the game and we strive to show as much beauty as the ugly, brutal realities of the world allow. We think you’ll find our wasteland beautiful once you get into the game world in just a couple months.

Our next video in the series will explore the crafting and scavenging gameplay mechanics. An in-depth documentary on the game disc will contain an expanded look at all the content in these videos. The Last of Us will be available on PlayStation 3 from 14th June 2013.

The Last of Us development series ep. 3: ‘Death and Choices’

We took a look at the Infected in our first video in The Last of Us Development series. We then explored the game world and nature’s reclamation of civilisation as we know it in our second video, Wasteland Beautiful. Our third video, Death and Choices, investigates what it means to be a survivor in the world of The Last of Us and how Joel and Ellie cope with the harsh realities of post-pandemic society. Watch it now:​

Survival is moment to moment in the world of The Last of Us. There are stark consequences to every decision that’s made and if Joel and Ellie want to survive they’ll need to scavenge the environment for every possible advantage. Learning to craft more potent weapons from makeshift materials or take defensive precautions using found objects will be critical to their continued survival.

Up next, our penultimate video in the series will spotlight the combat mechanics and the intimate nature of conflict in The Last of Us. The in-depth documentary we have been creating grew so large that we are currently seeking a unique way to distribute it. We’ll have details about how you can get the feature-length documentary of the making of The Last of Us in the coming months. The Last of Us will be available 14th June 2013.

There are some awesome beards at Naughty Dog. Some really nice touches coming together in this title. Live crafting happens in quite a few other titles but I like the fact that they've thought about it and given you part of the screen so you can still see what's going on around you.

I've just watched a demo playthrough on Youtube. Is this game basically Uncharted 4 In a different wrapper? I think the SP Looks fantastic apart from the stupid shoulder swap shit.

No, definitely not Uncharted in a different wrapper. It's a survival game where resources are scarce and what you pick up can be crafted into different things, both offensive and defensive. All of which is done 'live' - no pausing to make things, it's all done in-game so pick a quiet corner to prepare your things or get attacked by baddies!
