Listen mode optional huraahh!

28 replies 527 views Edited May 17, 2013
Thank you naughty dog. Thank you! Listen mode can be toggled off on any difficulty. I'm happy. I would have been Ok with listen mode if it was there but now that I know I can turn it off for sure I am definitely interested to turn it off on my first play through. I'll probably use it on my second pay through

 "you have the choice of turning Violence (assuming that refers to blood), Lock-On Aiming, Listen Mode, Melee Prompts and Tag Popups on or off. Essentially, you can limit the occasional HUD elements to make your experience more visceral and organic and also add another degree of difficulty if wanted."

 


So, those of you with chronic OCD who can't help but press the R2 button, are you satsfied now? :smileywink:

 


Edit: My bad, you already know this if  you watch  one of the vids EDSTA posted, but if you're on a media blackout, then here's your confirmation

I am happy with it :smileyhappy:

 

I mean, I really start to hate all these through walls looking things, all my favorite games for ps3 has some kind of looking though walls...

 

Assassin's Creed had eagle vision, Tomb Raider had survival instinct, Uncharted has situational awareness, Batman Arkham has detective mode, inFamous has some kind of electric pulse thing that can sense stuff and so on...

 

And also upcoming games will have it, Watch Dogs for instance, although I like it in Watch Dogs that it isn't just a button press away, if you saw the gameplay demo about the CTos server hacking, he had to sneak through and destroy that server, you can hack into camera's and then see what the camera is seeing, then you can mark enemy's by hacking their mobile device and keep track of where his mobile is (and therefore knowing where it's owner is), so you won't see enemy's though walls you haven't seen and tagged yet, and you are vulnerable while doing it, I think that is great, and it is realistic, listen mode however, is not, situational awerenesss is not, and eagle vision is not...

We can turn violence off?

 

Instead of killing other people we can instead go on flower picking missions with the hunters and have Ellie teach us how to make flower necklaces and maybe build a camp fire and share tales of life as non violent post apocalytpic individuals.

 

But yes I'm happy that Listen mode had a toggle. Im hardcore like that.

What are Tag Popups, anybody know? Is it the little icon that appears on items you collect?

No. It shouldn't be in the game at all. This optional feature totally affects me personally and has ruined this game for me. 

 

ND has lost my respect as a developer. I'm cancelling my pre-oreder right now and boycotting the game because that matters for some reason.  


Joel: That's alright. I believe him.
