I swear to you dear Readers! I was so done with video games so hard I sold my console and swore to never play video games ever again! I was done with The Last Of Us and considered it the peak of gaming along with Tomb Raider (2013)! I thought I had all I needed from games!
I was wrong!
E3 just happened as we all know and probably as we all know a few saliva-inducing trailers were dropped including the sequel to one of the best games ever made! Hands down the best trailer of E3 2018 and I will fight whoever thinks otherwise!
Yes, KOJIMA’s Death Stranding was awesome but we can all agree that we spent more time trying to figure out what the hell was going on than actually enjoying it so The Last Of Us Part II trailer takes the cake!
Everything was literally perfect about this trailer! The editing, the game play, the soundtrack, the quality…Oh God the quality!!!! Of course it had to be one of the very few that the Sony YouTube channel released in glorious 4K! And I ate it all up like it was Caramel and banana flavoured ice Cream in this hot damn weather!!!
You could clearly see all the emotions in Ellie’s face during the cut scene, hell, I think I saw her dimples wink at me! Her eyes, Jesus! I haven’t even played the game, nay, don’t even know the release date yet but I am declaring this the Best Game Ever (Bring it on Death Stranding!”
But let’s talk about the actual content – and by that I mean of course the RAINBOWS!!!! Finally, after being teased in the first game, then being half fed in the DLC, now we finally get to explore Ellie’s relationship, or the GAY side of it! It’s five years later so no experimental bullshit, and really, having just NTR’d her Pal’s girlfriend (or Ex since they are broken up) there is no turning back and I hope to the good God that their relationship is explored in the actual game! Like, you can’t just steal someone’s girl, well, no one’s girl but you just told him they would get back together and seem to support them then you go and…
Though to be fair this was all on Dina! That girl was not playing!!! She just straight up walked over to Ellie, took her glass and drank the rest of her drink, then proceeded to drag her onto the dance floor, guided Ellie’s hands onto her hips, seduced the heck out of her with the ‘do I smell tactic’ (It works!?!) then straight up kissed her not once, not twice, but three damn times for good measure!
There is no ‘mistakes’ about those kisses!
And speaking of the new Flame…Dina straight up made this trailer with her dialogue! It had double meanings both literally and figuratively! But which is which depends on the context! if we are talking about the dance floor then the literal meaning would be that Dina says the people around them are afraid of Ellie because she just won the girl (and probably many more if she wanted)!
And I am jumping ahead so let me take a step back and explain!
You see as they dance, Ellie notices that everyone was staring at them which she concluded that they were staring at Dina, since she had been putting on a show that even Ellie could not resist (Seriously, there were stars in her eyes as she watched Dina dance)! But Dina says to her that maybe they were watching her instead. She says that they might have been jealous!
Ellie can’t comprehend why they would be? She was just a girl (She knew they were talking about someone winning Dina for the night)! Dina answers that they should be afraid of Ellie! She then does the thing and Ellie does the thing and when the answer is green they kiss, twice, and as the camera spans over around them, we transition (masterfully and beautifully) into the figurative side where Ellie straight up murders some fools with arrows, machetes and guns!
Yes, she is not only figuratively to be feared but she is also to be literally feared and then after the murder spree showing how frikkin Alpha Ellie is, we transition right back onto the dance floor where they go in for that one final kiss and the emotions in Ellie’s eyes…
I am sorry but these are game graphics, right?!
Excuse me Naughty Dog Studios but I don’t care if the game is coming out in five years, just put up that pre-order option and you have my money right now!
