By far the best part about Christmas (asides from the many Christmas puds, spuds and festive cheer) are the deals. This holiday has thrown up a good many of them including the (still ongoing) Ubisoft sale and the Harmonix Rock Band sale that we announced earlier. But apparently, with just over a week left until the festive season is done and dusted our capitalist overlords aren’t done yet. The latest bargain comes from UK retailer GAME who are offering a PS4 bundle including GTA V, The Last of Us: Remastered, Driveclub and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare all for just £350. Find out more after the break.
Picture the scene : a population infected by a plague, enraged mutants preying on the innocent and healthy, the last remaining survivors trying to do just that, survive. It sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard of before, right? Oh don’t give me that look, I know the premise of The Last Of Us sounds like a half-baked slice of oversaturated gaming pie but I’m willing to bet my life savings on it playing out like the exact opposite.
The Last Of Us (which is a PS3 exclusive) seems to be your atypical survival horror zombie slash ‘em up, you’re fighting the undead, you’re fighting rebels who are trying to jump you for a packet of rations and you’re fighting for your life, but what sets TLOU apart from the likes of the more arcadey Dead Rising and the eerie slasher-flick-esque Dead Space is that it’s developed by Naughty Dog. These guys aren’t just the Kings (and Queens) of quality video game development, they’re the whole entire monarchy.
