Grounded: The Making of The Last Of Us

A few months before the launch of The Last Of Us, Naughty Dog announced that the game would be getting DLC, both single player and multiplayer. As the norm, a season pass was announced alongside for a mere $19.99. Included with the season pass was Day 1 DLC, which included-

Day 1 Bonuses

  • Increased Crafting Speed
  • Increased Healing Speed
  • 9mm Reload Speed Upgrade
  • Rifle Clip Capacity Upgrade
  • Grounded – exclusive 90min “Making of The Last of Us” documentary

That last item, the documentary, was something I totally spaced about by the time launch came around. I stumbled across a Twitter post mentioning the documentary, so I googled and was reminded that the film was included with my purchase. I logged onto PSN in hopes of finding it in my purchases, but to no avail. I searched all over, both the store and the internet, but could not find the documentary. Finally I asked the Podcast Beyond Facebook group and they came to my aid. I decided to take this opportunity and make a video showing you how to download the Grounded: Making of The Last Of Us documentary. Not only will this video help you, but it has helped me with video editing and becoming comfortable with my “radio” voice. One step closer to providing you with better content! Thank you for watching and enjoy!

The Last Of Us Review

“The problem with The Last Of Us is that not every single person currently living on Earth will play it.” – @MaverickTenSays

Can it be true?
Can it be true?

My friend Maverick makes a bold statement. Can a game truly be that good? Something everyone should play? In short, yes. The Last Of Us is a true experience. Not like watching a movie or reading a book. No. You are actively involved in this post-pandemic world Naughty Dog has fashioned from man’s fears. You will invest your time, energy, and emotion into the story and characters of The Last Of Us. You will feel loss and fear alongside grace and hope. The Last Of Us is a masterful production.

The Last of Us Demo Poll

Since the beginning of March, I have gone dark on news surrounding Naughty Dog’s latest game, The Last of Us. Now in just two days (May 31, 2013) The Last of Us demo unlocks itself in God of War: Ascension. I see the opportunity that I have here to be able to write up a preview of the demo and my thoughts of the game. The only issue is that playing the demo would break my “news blackout” on the game. So to solve this tiny problem, I decided to leave it up to you, my readers. Below is a poll asking wether or not I should play and preview the demo for The Last of Us. What do you want me to do? Play and preview? Or stay in the dark until June 18th? Let me know and vote!

What happens when you mix avocados, onions, tomatoes, limes, garlic cloves, and peppers? You get a delicious bowl of guacamole.
