The Last of Us spoilercast

Ellie and Oli discuss the plot points in Naughty Dog's post-apocalyptic masterpiece.

You've had plenty of time to play through The Last of Us since its release last Friday, so it's time to get down into detail and discuss what we really thought of the more powerful moments in Joel and Ellie's adventure. Oli's already bought you his review, and he's joined by Ellie Gibson as they go through the story's twists and turns and deliver their thoughts on how effective Naughty Dog's been in delivering a more grounded, more human take on a world destroyed. Needless to say, there will be spoilers.

We're hoping to bring you more of these in the near future, with an Animal Crossing one lined up next (spoiler: Nook did it). There's a podcast link at the bottom of the page for you to listen to on the move, but if you're after words and pictures Ian Higton's lovingly put together a video as well.
