Re: Are you still discovering new things?

Jul 17, 2013

The first thing I discovered that struck me the most was the attention to detail when it comes to lighting and shadows. This was on the rooftop with Joel and Tess where their characters cast their shadows on a building across the street. The shadows were like at least a good 100-foot distance from my perspective. I spent a good 10 minutes walking around, aiming with the pistol to see if my shadow is doing the same.

You can do "Joel + Ellie's cover cuddle" animation with Bill as well.

Yeah I can confirm that. If you start a new game (not NG+, will stay if NG+) it will disappear however until you complete it again.



thanks! That's kind of cool Smiley Happy. I wonder if they intend to put a meaning behind it, or just an easter egg




Yeah, I got it too after playing survivor (didn't notice it the first time). I took it as Joel and Ellie finally putting down their weapons and living a normal life. Plus they got electricity and there's kids and 40 families so it's all cool.

If you look in Sarah's room in the prologue, she actually has the picture Tommy tries to give to Joel hung up on the wall by her night stand. it's of Sarah and Joel at a soccer competition. I thought it was really neat.

Perhaps Naughty Dog will offer dlc Frank skin at some point? ;-)

In Sarah's room in the prologue, there's a book on her desk by the computer that's titled "Mathematics Help Guide". I guess she wasn't that good at math lol. She's also kinda messy, judging from the clothes on her floor, she knows how to play the guitar like her dad, and soccer wasn't just a hobby, but something she really loved. There's also another book on her desk that says "Speed Reading Techniques", so I guess she wants to be able to skim? Also, there's a stuffed giraffe next to her dresser and in front of her door, possible vague foreshadow? Oh, and she had a skateboard.Cat Very Happy

 

Edit: There's a portrait of a snowy landscape with a deer in Joel's room. Another vague foreshadow? Also, something that I noticed about the pictures in the house is that there's no pictures of Sarah and her mom, or just her mom. They're all either her with Joel, Tommy, or her friends. No mommy.

 

Edit (again): When you go into the alley as Joel and Tommy pushes the runner from you and shoots him in the head, it's the same exact execution animation that you can perform in the MP. When he executes the runner, you even hear him shout "he's dead" except its not in Tommy's voice. Rather, it sounds like a voice in the MP. Possible bug? Still awesome to see though.

I discovered many more contextual attacks in my 2nd, 3rd and 4th playthrough.

Hey, this may come a little off-topic but can someone tell me if I have to unlock all the shiv doors in a single playthough or can if I can just do it by chapter select, please?

Where did Ellie got her switchblade? She got it in Davids place, right? 

 

NVM I remember she stabbed a soldier in chap 3 with it.

I noticed the switchblade by the window as soon as I finished my first playthrough.

It was an awesome symbol for completing the story.

 

I then later realized that the window in the main menu looks like the same window in the TLoU 2011 announcement trailer, they showed at the VGAs.
