Itâ€™s been over a month since Iâ€™ve dipped my toes back into The Last Of Us Part 2. Exactly…I played it the first weekend it released and then left it alone for a whole month. I think a lot of that was anxiety to get back into that game and that world. Iâ€™m usually far more methodical in these kinds of games and for that first weekend I played it – thatâ€™s exactly what I was. It took me a full 3 days of playing to not even get near halfway into the game. And the thought of doing that again was apparently weighing down on me to the point where I just didnâ€™t want to do it.
So when I stepped back inside the game this past weekend, I went in and put it on the easiest setting I could with as much assistance as I could. Now the combatâ€™s a breeze and so is the stealth, but Iâ€™m also moving quicker (a bit) through the game and Iâ€™m fine with that. It isnâ€™t taking away anything from the story but it is helping the story move along quicker – which Iâ€™m fine with.
Iâ€™m much too far behind in this game to keep holding off playing it if I want to find out what others think of it. I have to avoid almost any and all conversations about it just in the event that something might get spoiled for me. Thereâ€™s another slice of anxiety there as well. So…onward we go to finally finishing up this game. My thoughts so far, as best I can relate to where I am without giving anything away are contained in this episode. Hopefully Iâ€™ll have even more to say and maybe even feel differently come next episode.
Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,532 days since the last Splinter Cell release.
