The Last Of Us - Part 2

I’ve played through TLOU2 4 times now: A first playthrough focusing on the narrative A new game plus playthrough focusing on some achievements (getting all the upgrades for weapons etc) and collectibles A third playthrough of some epic moments and completing the collectibles with the use of a guide (some really were hard to find) A fourth playthrough on permadeath mode (per chapter, I don’t want to loose 30 hours of gameplay…) and have gotten killed by a fall, a dog and a stalker so far.

The Last Of Us

It’s been a little over five minutes since the credits of ‘The Last of Us Remastered’ rolled over my screen.
