Left Behind Review– Welcome Home
By Max Roberts
Editors Note: Due to the nature of the DLC and where it fits into the entire story, spoilers for The Last Of Us appear in this review. Please, if you wish to go into the main campaign spoilers free, do not read this review or play the DLC until completion of the story. Enjoy.
Developer Naughty Dog is often praised for creating top notch games that are unmatched in quality, experience, and fun. Rightly so too. They, truly, have not made a bad game.
I want to praise Naughty Dog for something else in this review. That something is pure, sacred, and innocent. “The Kennel” crafts beautiful, rich, powerful and meaningful relationships. One relationship in particular is the beating heart of The Last Of Us’ DLC, Left Behind.
Here are the official rules for the Giveaway!
Throughout the Live Stream I will ask trivia questions about The Last Of Us! The first person to answer by tweeting @GoLeftGaming will win the prize. The first question will be for the third place prize and so on. The trivia may be about any part of The Last Of Us!! From the game itself to the development process! So brush up on your Naughty Dog knowledge! As a refresher, here are the 3 prizes-
Prize 1) The entire American Dreams prequel comic series (4 issues in total, digitally)
Prize 2) The Left Behind DLC
and the grand prize-
Prize 3) The Last Of Us season pass (which includes Left Behind, all the multiplayer DLC, and the documentary) AND the American Dreams prequel comic series
How the questions will be asked-
As I mentioned before, the questions will be trivia based on The Last Of Us and Left Behind. The trivia will be hard!!! All the answers are widely and freely available though. I will ask the questions on the Live Stream with a heads up and mention what prize is associated with that question. I will also Tweet out the question! You may either tweet @GoLeftGaming or reply to the tweet with your answer!
Rules for contestants- Only one answer per person per question! You must have The Last Of Us to win the DLC. One prize per person. How I will verify this- you must add me on PSN (mudkip143) and I will check your trophy list to see if you have completed the game. Thanks in advance for tuning in and GOOD LUCK!
Notice anything different about the Go Left Gaming home page? No. Here, I’ll point it out for you.
There is a new page for you to visit!! The “Vlog” page!
The Vlog page is very simple. It has just one video embedded into its page-y goodness. That video is a playlist for every single episode of Go Left Gaming’s weekly Thursday vlog! From that video playlist, you can even visit Go Left Gaming’s YouTube channel and subscribe to see new vlogs every Thursday! Vlog 012: Next-Gen Multiplayer was just posted! Check it out and any other vlogs you may have missed. And always remember to…Go Left!
Welcome! Wow, this is the first post of 2014. I’m sorry if this seems a little late, but I have such exciting news! Go Left Gaming has been pushing the multimedia aspect of journalism on its YouTube and Twitch channels. Content includes weekly vlogs, live streams, and walk through videos. It’s super exciting to be creating the content and learning about this aspect of the industry. As a part of this multimedia push, Go Left Gaming is hosting a live stream of The Last Of Us‘ DLC, Left Behind and the factions multiplayer mode!
The stream will be held on March 4, 2014 at 6:00 PM EST! That is when I will start the Left Behind DLC from start to finish with all the collectibles and conversations. This will be a ton of fun. A little bit before and for quite some time after the DLC, I will play The Last Of Us online multiplayer.
Also, as a part of the stream, to share my love of The Last Of Us and it’s brand new DLC there will be a giveaway! A total of three prizes will be given away! There are-
1) The entire American Dreams prequel comic series (4 issues in total)
2) The Left Behind DLC
and the grand prize-
3) The Last Of Us season pass (which includes Left Behind, all the multiplayer DLC, and the documentary) AND the American Dreams prequel comic series
How the winners will be decided and the details of the contest will be set in concrete at a later time, but those are the prizes!
You can RSVP for the event on our Facebook page or just click here! Hope to see you on March 4, 2014 at 6:00 PM EST on Go Left Gaming’s Twitch channel for Left Behind!
