The Last Of Us

I've been pretty busy these last few weeks, while at the same time trying my best to take some time off.

Apparently, time off is a good thing. Time off is necessary. We released The Maleficent Seven at the start of the year, and we're gearing up to the release of Last Stand of Dead Men in EXACTLY one month's time. That's two books out in the same year, one written straight after the other, not to mention one or two other short stories for various things yet to be announced. So I've pretty much been working nonstop since November of 2012. Wow. When I say it like that, I suddenly start to feel very tired...

I'm still waiting to hear back from Harper Collins on things like the back cover reveal, and possibly putting up a sample chapter or two. I also need to pick a date for a VERY informal reader get-together in Dublin over the next few weeks. When I said I'd do this back in April I had no idea I'd be so busy, so hopefully I'll still be able to fit it in. Oh, and in a matter of days I'll be posting the tour schedule for LSODM, which will be kicking off at the Edinburgh Book Festival on August 25th- where copies of the new book WILL be on sale.

I normally HATE early releases, but seeing as how it's only a difference of four days PLUS the fact that the Edinburgh audience never reveal spoilers, I don't mind this at all.

Er... I think I've strayed from the point of this Blog entry... what was it again?

Yes! Time off! That's it!

So, I haven't ACTUALLY been able to take any time off, but then I've never been one for taking holidays. However, I have managed to watch a few movies in the evenings, and watch a few TV shows to relax, and to play a few video games. And THAT is the point of this Blog entry.

Over the past few months, I've played two very good games. Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider. I've talked about these games in an earlier post. Of the two, I preferred Tomb Raider. It just felt more visceral. The gameplay was excellent, the atmosphere was amazing, and the tension was nerve-shredding. But apart from all that, it was the character work that stood out. Tiny emotions flickering across Lara Croft's face, paired with such wonderful voice acting, meant that I really cared about her. I liked her, and I didn't want anything bad to happen to her. In contrast to the gritty, naturalistic world of Tomb Raider, Bioshock was hugely imaginative fun with great gameplay, stunning visuals, and a great supporting character. The best supporting character in video games, I reckoned.

And then came The Last Of Us.

The Last Of Us is survival horror. 20 years after the outbreak of a fungal virus that latches onto a person's mind and drives them insane, the world is in ruins. Survivors gather in quarantined cities. Life is miserable. Life is cheap. Death is quick, cruel, and common. But outside the walls of the cities, it's even worse. That's where the Infected roam.

(A fungal virus sounds pretty laughable, right? Type 'Cordyceps' in to any search engine. Read up on what it does to ants. Now imagine what it'd do to people.)

You control Joel, a man in his 50s who has to escort Ellie, a 14 year old girl, across America. They go from city to town to suburb to countryside to mountains, and not only do they have to avoid the Infected, they have to avoid most of the other survivors as well. Because these are NOT nice people.

This is a game that combines the best elements of both Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite. The world is grim and gritty but so, so beautiful. Lush greenery spills up from cracked cement. The sky is a million shades of orange at dusk. But the action is brutal. And the supporting character is astonishing.

Play this game for a few hours and you'll start to really care about Joel and Ellie. Play it for a few hours more and you'll find yourself terrified. You'll hear the clicking of the Infected around you as you crouch in the darkness, and you'll freeze in fear. Why? Because you want to keep Ellie safe. That's ALL you'll care about.

This is one of the best games I've ever played. Is it the most fun? No, that'd probably go to one of the Uncharted games, just for sheer entertainment. But this is definitely the scariest, the most tense, and the most involving. It sucks you in and it doesn't let you go. This is a masterpiece of gaming that will be used as a benchmark for all games that come after, and as a piece of storytelling it succeeds where so many other stories fail.

It's brilliant. If you're over 18, then ready yourself, and go play it.

Omg, one month to LSODM.
AHHHH!!!!
I notify my friends about the countdown everyday XD

Me and my friends did the 'pass out' challenge today, which is highly dangerous.
I found this out afterwards though.
I fainted and it was fun and then it kept not working and then I had a flashback and it was so scary that I stopped being dizzy and then yeah and then I forgot what happened, because I was going to tell my friends, but I forgot.
But it was so cool, even though it's dangerous and stuff.

I can't control my anger and I've been
About to explode far too many times
I've seen my dreams becoming more violent
Every time that I see you
No matter how you try to define it
I have been broken too many times
Too much emotion, too long confined has
Weakened the wall that protects you

Ease your mind
This moment will pass if you just . . .

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My dysfunction is one your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My destruction is on your mind
Before you find that you have
Tested my resolve one too many times

I am no stranger, you know that I've been
Pressed to the wall far too many times
Huard your behaviour or you will find my
Murderous nature surround you
Others have wandered over the line that
Awaken the monster too many times
Leave it unspoken and you will find an
End to the violence if you can

Ease your mind
This moment will pass if you just . . .

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My dysfunction is one your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My destruction is on your mind
Before you find that you have
Tested my resolve one too many times

Ease your mind
This moment will pass if you just . . .

Leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My dysfunction is one your mind
When you find that you're at odds with your desire
Just leave it alone
Leave it alone
Every time
My destruction is on your mind
Before you find that you have
Tested my resolve one too many times

((I'm leaving for a bit- bbl!))

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed
I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed

GOODBYE!

I wipe it off on a tile
The light is brighter this time
Everything is 3D blasphemy
My eyes are red and gold
The hair is satnding straight up
This is not the way I picture me
I can't control my shakes
How the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong
I have to laugh out loud
I wish I didn't like this
Is it a dream or a memory?

I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed
I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed

Get out of my head coz I don't need this
Why didn't I see this?
Well I'm a victim -
Manchurian candidate!
I have sinned by just
Making my mind up and taking a breath away

I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed
I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed

GOODBYE!

You haven't learnt a thing
I haven't changed a think
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free
You haven't learnt a thing
I haven't changed a thing
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free

I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed
I've felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed

AND I WAIT FOR YOU!

Back! :)

And I just found this interview with Matt and Justin from MCS which I've not read before, and this one question:
If you had to marry a male celebrity, who would it be and why?

Matt: Well, it would have to be someone who could, you know, sing me a nice love song... so with that in mind, some sort of crooner, let's go with Jeff Buckley. That man could sing. I'd need some songs in life.

And I'm just sat here, like, squeeing. x3

Bye Fabi! *hugs*

@Sapphire Lore: Welcome! :)
*offers a cookie*
It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance!
D'you mind if I/we call you Lore, or have you a preference? Just, there's another Saph around already. :)

@Adra: YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW ANYTHINGS :P
I know about 1D only what I hear from Mara and my Directioner friend/s.
I'm distant, but always happy to talk about pretty much anything (within fair reason. :P) :)

Yeah yeah, I know that it's 1D and those bands that Star adores, I'm just saying- no one really knows who Kerli is, or wants to talk Aerosmith or Led Zep. That's all.

Not that there is a lot to talk about anyways....

*RPs*

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

I know so much from Maraness. I know more about 1D than my friends who are into 1D. XD
(They aren't really that obsessed, thoughhhhhh)

Sorry...

#ChaseForBook9

@Adra: And who talks about anyone with anything? :P
You can randomly spam if you want whilst we're randomly spamming. No one knows who anyone is. :(

BUT ANYWAY. THE RANDOM SPAM WILL HOPEFULLY MOSTLY STOP.

*frowns at screen*

Btw, msd. I'm always msd at night, because the wifi could get switched off . . .

... I need to stop using Hannibal quotes to describe things. At some point, it's going to start getting creepy. :P

@Adra: Nobody knows the majority of what I listen to, either. But random spam goes on, and sometimes one thing can be related to another, and, IDK.
If there's anything you want to say, say it, I guess. :)

Even if it's just like "CAAAAAKKEEEEEE."

Because cake is nice. :3

Possibly msd.

Okay then.


I finished the video btw

I PREFER BUNS AND MUFFINS TO CAKE.

CAKE IS ALL AWKWARD TO HOLD.

Hi Death!

Sorry about the fact he lives over here. :(

*could quote numerous things to do with the fact she's sick, but doesn't, because it might encourage the sickness*

Okay, I think I'm back now...

Hey Fabi! :)

Taia DeMars, Inesculent Bean of Written Ramblings (and Dinosaur Enthusiast) said...

@Star: THAT DEPENDS ENTIRELY ON THE CAKE ITSELF.
But buns and muffins are nice, equally. :P

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

MY DAD MAKES THE BEST-TASTING CAKES IN THE UNIVERSE.

ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WILL DIE.

AND MY MUM ICES THE BEST.

MY PARENTS ARE THE BIRTHDAY CAKE OVERLORDS.

(Seriously. We've had fairies and hedgehogs and rockclimbing and all sorts.)

But I still prefer buns and muffins. :)

#ChaseForBookNine

Fabi~ said...

I'm just...

Worried, I guess. And wondering if I made the right decision or not.

It still feels like something's going to explode. Like it's not realt over. I mean... I don't know, and I'm sorry if that offends anyone, I just feel...tension of some sort whenever I come on here anymore.

Maybe it's just my imagination...?

I guess it'll take a while for the memories and that to die down . . . :/

Oh, the video ded from a month ago is up. Too lazy to get the link. :-P

Cool Mr Landy! Cool! It sounds good ... but I'm not over 18 so I can't play it :(

Taia DeMars, Inesculent Bean of Written Ramblings (and Dinosaur Enthusiast) said...

@Star: My dad makes no involvement, but my mother rules, to some extent, when it comes to cake.
We've had a toadstool-fairy-house, we've had pokémon, we've had spongebob and trains, we've had lightsabres and tigers and a circus and the best damn dalek you'd ever see made out of cake, icing, and bronze/gold dust. :3
Not that I'm disagreeing, but I think some of ours were pretty cool too. :P
And, hedgehogs and rockclimbing both sound awesome. :)

*high-fives for the arts of cakeness* :P

@Fabi: Awesome! :)
I've had potato-based chocolate cake before, but not made by a relative. ^^

@Star: *laughs* *hugs back* YAY! :P

The dalek was pretty awesome, though... Until it was accidentally decapitated by somebody's bag. :P

That said, the Pikachu wasn't much of an achievement. :P
It was a sort of squished sphere, with ears and a tail, basically. :P

Yeah, it was good. She lost the recipe, though, and now denies she ever made such a thing.

BUT IT WAS FOR MY BIRTHDAY

SO SHE FORGOT MY BIRTHDAY.

Or actually my unbirthday, I think it was. But we were celebrating my birthday, just really late. SO IT AMOUNTS TO THE SAME THING

It has been ages, indeed.

And hopefully I am one of those people who are able to go :)

But since I'll be at the Edinburgh Festival I don't suppose it matters too much if I can't.

Also I'll be getting LSODM four days early, and probably won't be online because I am terrible at resisting spoiler requests.
