There you go

Spoiler!

The trailers are made in a way to give you the impression you are going to play with Joel along with you, at least a portion of the game just like old times. But apart from flashbacks, they mostly do not meet in game.

- The first trailer where Joel walks into a house where Ellie has killed a lot of people and she is playing the guitar and she says "Im going to kill all of them". 

- There is another one where Ellie is talking to Joel and he says "there is a price to be paid". They swapped the models to give you the impression it happens in the present, with Joels by your side. In game, the model used is of Joel 5 years younger as of course, the scene happen in a flashback.

- The amazing scene in the trailers that everyone cheered, Joel reaches Ellie from behind (ops...) and says "think I would let you do it on your own?" to make you think Joel is coming along for the ride, in game is actually Jesse, nicknamed now as Asian Joel.

There are two more I cant remember right now. It was on purpose and I truly believe this is awful as people hold the first game deep in their hearts.

This is even more deceiving than Kojima on MGS2 and can't even be compared with FF7 which in my opinion wasnt deceiving, they just needed to include an Ep1 on the cover of the game. 

To be fair, we will know only in the future but I believe this game had a big story redesign not long ago, as the co-writer already stated she had a fight with Drunkmann for 6 months to swap the destiny of two characters.

You play with Joel on the start of the game already, didn`t see any promise of even playing with him, much less playing a significant portion of the game. In fact there was fan outrage until the previous year because Joel wasn`t being show at any moment when they presented TLOU2, including in the E3 were we had the outburst of the lesbian dance and several scenes of gameplay with Ellie.

Sure I would prefer to play as Joel than Ellie and don`t even mind if Dina didn`t exist, but that was never the way the game was portrayed to be.

Well if you think it's alright for marketing for games to advertise games this way then, good for you I think.

Nothing in the trailers are even close to false advertising. I guess you being pissed by the game since the spoilers is more a reason for you to not like the trailer than anything. Again almost all material involving TLOU2 didn`t have Joel. And would be very odd to see let`s say a class act against Sony because TLOU2 don`t let you play as Joel for majority of the game.

I'm so tired of hearing "Is that all of 'em?" "I think so." Otherwise, the game is excellent so far. I'm maybe 10 hours in.

I would say that is only to confirm to player that they can move on without missing things in the building.

They just need many more varied ways for the characters to say it.  Also, the music essentially tells us when the fights are over.  And, maybe it would be nice to not be told once in a while.

Certainly agree. Since resident evil (or even before) music change cue us for a change mainly start or end battle. But for ~you have picked all itens or collectibles cue is good.

And certainly it can be done so much better. Just said why they made it be said so many times.

Judging by the trailers, I was expecting to play with Ellie only or most of the time. I'd be surprised if I can play with Joel.

btw, my copy is coming tonight. :)



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?

Stop reading this part of the forum till you completed the game please.

I hope you will have a great time!



I thought this was spoiler free. Well count me out of the forum for any TLOU topics then. There is another thread for spoilers smh.



Jesus Fuck I can't even play this game. My PS4 Pro keeps fucking up. I don't know whether it's the game, or my system, but the amount of animation bugs in this game is ungodly. I've updated my system OS, replaced the disk with another copy, uninstalled, and reinstalled the whole game. Nothing fixes it. The only thing I have left to do is reformat my entire HDD, and then reinitialize the system. But I don't want to go through the hassle. Just let me play the fucking game!

So I'm just posting here to ask if anybody else is having these horrible animation glitches. My Pro is just 1.5 years old so it should be working fine.
