I've been waiting for The Last of Us forever, it seems like. I'm really getting excited more and more with every month change that comes along. Not so very long now!
The TV spot on The Walking Dead last night was good. Hopefully we'll see more of that advertising!
Really, I can't say I'm "super stoked" about the game. Although I'd like to be, it's not every game that puts me into a position where I'm extremely floored to get it. In fact, there aren't too many games that actually do that sort of thing for me. I wouldn't say I'm jaded or anything, but I definitely don't let go of my inhibitions for every game that comes out.
I am definitely waiting in anticipation for The Last of Us. I am really into the Survival Action / Horror genre. This being said, I will most likely not run out and buy it on release date (When ever that ends up coming to pass).
I am an avid Dead Space (DS) fan, but I did not run out and get DS3. Actually still have not picked it up. I am finding with greater occurrence, my ability to hold out on games, wishing to avoid paying $60 for something I know I will be able to get for $30 and under if I only wait a few months.
As for online content games, while I am always tempted to run out for those, I am still weary of over paying for something. I got burned by the BF3 Premium Release on disc. After paying upwards of $100 for the Original and DLC, I am now willing to wait out any game. As well, with the approaching launch of the PS4, I am sure there will be a significant decline in pricing for PS3 games, a short time after initial releases.
So yes, I am stoked, but I will not be pre ordering or running out to be the first on my block to play it. Might even wait for a deal through PLUS.
I'm SUPER-MEGA-EXTEMELY-ULTIMATE-STOCKED about The Last of Us! I already have:
- The Post Pandemic Edition of The Last of Us (pre ordered paid in full)
- Had a custom made The Last of Us t-shirt made
- The Art of The Last of Us : Art book (pre ordered)
- The Limited Edition Stategy Guide (pre order paid in full)
- The Last of Us: American Dreams comics (issues 2-4 pre ordered)
...so far. ^_^
