So, TLOU comes out on June 14th. What other something comes out on June 14th that I'm super excited for? Man of Steel. I want to go to the midnight showing of that, but I also want to go to the midnight launch of TLOU (if they have one...which I'm sure they will at Gamestop) as I preordered it and have never gotten a game at midnight to perform an all nighter with it on release date.
Also, the reason I like to go to midnight showings of movies is because (usually) the crowd is actually there to watch the movie and enjoy it. Although there might be distractions, for the most part, you can assume that people genuinely want to pay attention to the movie and aknowledge other people's interest in it. Therefore, you don't get as many disturbances. Plus, I like to bolster opening weekend/opening night box office totals. It's something I have always enjoyed contributing in.
However, with the type of game that this is, I really want to make TLOU my first all-nighter midnight release video game. I completed 50% of Uncharted 2 in one sitting, which took me roughly 4-5 hours. It was an AMAZING feeling, but I got that game months after it released and my playtime started around 4pm. It just didn't have that same feeling you get when you pull an all nighter for something (like movies or school work). With TLOU being a narrative driven story, it feels like the perfect opportunity to just plop down and enjoy the story as soon as possible. I can easily see the time going straight by with the story and I think it would be an awesome memory to play it ASAP on its release date midnight launch.
Anybody have any work-arounds they can think of??
Maybe if you can find a unpopulair store who sells games you might get to buy the last of us a day earlier and then you can go to man of steel midnight show.
However if you went to see Man of Steel the day after playing TLoU, you'll have had a taste of that delicious gameplay and will be itching to get back to playing it during your viewing of the movie.
