Tuffcub, Vaughn (of podcast “VAUGHN!” fame) and myself went to a The Last of Us event, this past week. It was tucked into this unused warehouse, filled with rows and rows of consoles loaded up with demos of the game, the same which Al played for his preview a little while back.
A lot of it was dressed up to look like it would fit in with the dystopian world of TLOU, with one room in particular doing a spectacularly good job of looking like it’s straight out of the game (well, maybe a PS4 sequel). So I thought I would share that room with you all.
Feel free to grab it full sized here, or just click on the photo itself. Just don’t zoom in too far, because there’s a teensy bit of blurring, I’m afraid.
After badgering people over the last few weeks, Ro6afc11 took pity on my trials and tribulations, and sent in his set up. He’s a lovely chap, that Rob is.
He also sent in a nice little description:
The main reason for not answering the call is that there really is not much to see. I know everyone says that but in my case it’s not far from the truth. I consider it to be an antithesis to the teenage boys bedroom type of setup.
In photo 1 you can see lots of white with a few black bits dotted here and there. The units are the finest Ikea Bjorn Borg (or something like that). The tall one on the left is half depth to allow for a door opening and is ideal for Blu Ray/DVD cases etc. PS Vita is always close to hand.
Photo 2 has the main workings. 37″ Panasonic Viera (Whoa oh oh oh!) TV. Only bought it as it was called Vieira (almost). Above that on the left is a Pioneer 5.1 HDMI tuner thingy and on the right the PS3, of course. My TSA F1 2012 Championship Driver’s Choice award takes pride of place along side the magic black box.
Behind the frosted glass below the TV is a Panasonic Freeview HD Recorder. Not had that too long but is getting well used now. The router also lives in there and there is plenty of draw space for my laptop and other junk.
The overall look is pretty clinical I guess but behind the doors is a serious dumping ground. Photo 3 is a small snippet of the games shelf and associated tech junk such as Move Controllers. Also houses headphones, batteries, leads etc.
I have no figurines, special editions or anything like that. Where would I put all that clutter! My only concession to Collectors Editions are the Killzone Steelbooks but everyone has them don’t they?
That concludes my burglar’s tour of where I do my gaming.
If you too feel sorry for me, you can sponsor me for just £2… no wait, that’s not it… If you want to rescue me from begging for more participants, please use the submission form below, get in touch with me on Twitter at @teflon, or just send me an email out of the blue to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It took me long enough, but I decided to pop back onto Uncharted: Golden Abyss and jump through the final few hurdles to get the platinum. So, I zipped through the final third of the campaign on Crushing, and then embarked on a mission to finish all of the specific weapon kill tallies and so on. Took me a little while longer than I would have liked, because some of the weapon’s kill counts had oddly reset themselves at some point.
Taylor Made has been much snappier than I was with Uncharted, by getting the Soul Sacrifice platinum in a record time. Ace-Michie thinks he’s been fastest with the as yet unclaimed DmC: Devil May Cry fastest, and germ1984 has nabbed the fastest for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14.
Bit of a mouthful, that last game, but not something Bambo_19 would struggle with, taking the Smart As fastest. BadBoyBoogie rounds out the torrent of speedy platinums with Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2!
Phew! Well, away from taking platinums, Bmg_123 finished Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, something which I’ve not seen myself yet able to do, as TheLoneSteven has completed his play time with Dragon’s Dogma. Parryman thoroughly enjoyed his 100% run on Thomas Was Alone.
Crazy_Del has managed something incredibly difficult in Payday: The Heist, completing all the heists on Overkill difficulty, alongside B_Cambo. Considering that there’s not a level which has higher than 50% completion rates beyond the first level on the normal “hard” difficulty level, this is impressive! It’s really is damned hard, as Mike, AG and I have quickly found!
Del also nabbed the Mercenaries 2: World in Flames platinum, even as he closes in on Payday’s, and speaking of B_Cambo, he has also rounded off his quad, with Hitman: Blood Money.
Finally, Motalla has been taunting us about a skateboarding secret meet. It has few rules:
- Do not talk about the secret meet.
- Do NOT talk about the secret meet!
- DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE SECRET THPS TSA MEETS ON THURSDAY EVENINGS!
So, if you can figure that one out…
We’re nearly done, but you can head over to page two for the full trophy leaderboards. To finish off this page, we have the usual submission form for photos and accomplishments. Don’t hold back!
