How is this going free? It sounds like it was a major free patch for owners of the game but not intended to make the game free. Think this is an error?

That's DLC, not the game. This is the game:

Ellie confirmed as only playable character in TLOU II. Pretty much all I need to know at this point. I'm sure they have their (stupid) reasons but seeing Joel sidelined for Ellie just tells me that they're trying way too hard to be progressive and while that's fine, I would reject not being able to play as Joel since he's a far better developed character.

 

It's kinda like if they made an Uncharted game that didn't focus on Nat. . .oh wait. . .

Even though I understand that he'd be older now too, I still would prefer that he be the main character I liked him a lot.

Sad times. I was sitting in the living room with the family and saw that it was 11:59 here and just stood up and ran off without saying why lol. Managed to get one this time so I am pleased.

$2 Million dollars, Joel will be playable in TLOU 2 as..........dlc. No way he's relegated to only cutscenes for the sequel.

maybe play the game or wait for reviews before you decide the game sucks based on playing as a female character

True, but the reason why he’s a better developed character is because he had a entire game mostly focused on his story. So it makes perfect sense for the sequel to be Ellie’s Story.

Having a female protagonist is "trying way too hard to be progressive", got it.  :eyeroll:

 

I'm really looking forward to the game.

It's sad to see Sony is being a giant douchebag with Fortnite accounts - if you play FortNite on PS4, Sony takes your FortNite account hostage and it can't be used on any other console.  I love the PS4, but between this and preventing all cross-platform play, Sony is pissing me off.

Female AND (wholesomely) openly gay protagonist is a new one on me, so I see it as being very progressive which I don't mind. Not being able to play as Joel, I do. Without him, there is no Last of Us and simply putting him in the game as a minor character (as it has been hinted at) just doesn't interest me enough to play. I liked the dynamic he had in the first game and how well developed he was. Them throwing him away did the same for my interests.

I never said the game sucked because of Ellie or that I'd hate playing as her, I said I wasn't interested in playing because I'd want to play as Joel again.

Many of the BioWare games can have gay protagonists (depending on how you play).  In any case, Ellie being gay isn't new information, it was pretty apparent in the Left Behind DLC.  It's not as if they suddenly said, "Oh, let's make her gay!"

I like Ellie but am disappointed that Joel isn't playable.  I didn't mind the Uncharted spinoff at all.  But IMO both characters were major focal points of the original game and should continue to be in the sequel.  We'll have to see just how much he shows up in part two's storyline, I suppose.

Hmmm, Bioware games you have the choice to make Shepard gay but here it's just fact. Not having a choice of the orientation for the character you play is what I meant as being a new one for me. And it wasn't news to me: again, the only news here is that Joel will not be playable in the second game. I want to play Joel. Simple.

Right, and equally I HATED that Sully wasn't in Uncharted 2 because he and Nathan played off each other perfectly. It was a blow for my interest in that game; was so happy when he came back in 3. It happens with any medium where you enjoy it because the people are what make it special, fictional or not. When you remove a key ingredient in any recipe, it changes how it tastes.

 

Losing Joel as a main character just makes it bitter for me.

I kind of feel like you missed the point of The Last of Us if you refuse to play as Ellie in the sequel (or even the DLC). The first game you spend trying to protect Ellie and form this father-daughter bond with her. Why so much animosity towards her now? To me, it's like the Walking Dead games, where the first game you played as Lee and basically informed Clementine's survival technique, and then the second game you played as Clem applying that practical knowledge. It might be done for clearly narrative reasons.

I never liked Ellie's character in the first game, but it was understood she was a vehicle for the plot and strengthened character development for Joel. The 'Lone Wolf and Cub' vibe was perfect for the story since it pushed it forward and made you feel like a guardian, something most of us can relate to.

 

And Joel looked to be in his 50's by the time Ellie was a young adult, so I don't buy that he's this old man just waiting to die. Maybe if he was looking 70 or 80. . .

Joel is dead. How is this not apparent at this point? After that first teaser from PSX and the complete lack of mention of him since it's more likely than not he's dead. Odds are he'll be in the game, but only as a memory and in flashbacks.

 

That gameplay looked absolutely sick. I, for one, cannot wait for LoU2.
