The Last of Us Review

The Last of Us. Such a phenomenal game and one that has countless publications in love with it. Racking up quite a nice list of awards in the process on top of commercial success (TLoU has sold 3.7 million units in it's first three weeks). A brand new ip, that's also a console exclusive, in addition to releasing in the summer doldrums...and the week of E3. Yeah, I say there has been a volcanic explosion of hype surrounding this title.

Now an issue I've had with writing this review (aside from making time to actually write...) dwelt directly with how I wanted to present this game. Do I lead in with a build up of the title? Should I discuss the balls of Sony/Naughty Dog to put Uncharted on the back burner and focus on this brand new ip? What should I do? My conclusion? Just talk about the game.

Stay here for more updates about Oklahoma's first Lan Center.

A Legend To Never Be Forgotten - Ryan Davis

I didn't know him personally, but he has played a critical role in how I think the video game industry's journalism should be held. The standards this man brought to the table were unmatched.From what I've seen and heard from others, Ryan Davis always had a smile on his face and apparently no one could ever stay or even get mad at the guy.He's influenced so many bloggers and games journalists the world over. Never allowing corporate bs to run rampant. Always enjoying what he did. And it showed, the Giant Bombcast didn't become the most successful podcast because the people hated what they did.In several ways he is very much what I aspire to be. Someone who leaves behind a legacy that is without question. Something that people look at and say "it was great because he never gave up and had…
