Just copped it today! Could someone please give a brother some tips on how to get the F out of the capital building with Ellie? I was going towards the rear exit and now I'm cornered and keep getting shot.

 

Erm if memory serves:

 

You run upstairs. Follow the bannister round and exit through the doors (might be a hole?) - there's a dead firefly with a hunting rifle if that helps.  This then leads up to an encounter upstairs with several guards/rooms. Followed by an encounter downstairs with several guards/rooms.

 

After all that you run out onto the street to freedom.

Thanks Miaoww, I actually made it through that after I posted that last night.  I'm now in the hotel chapter in Pittsburgh, and it SUCKS.  When I was stuck on the Capital Building chapter, it was because I kept waiting too long to move up.  I finally went all the way to the door on the far left, kind of flanking the soldiers, and then when they walked forward, I ran out of the building.

 

Now, I'm stuck in the Hotel Chapter where Joel falls with the elevator.  The lack of light in the basement is disorienting, furthermore, I almost shat myself when I ran around the same 3 rooms several times over, only to finally run into several stalkers that I had no idea were there.  I also tried to crank the generator and was immediately met by a Bloater and I have no weapons outside of my guns, lol.  So, I'm probably going to be stuck on this level for awhile or need to restart from the last point.  I also have no idea where the security card is for the door in the basement... 

 

Hopefully, I'll figure it out.

You need molotovs for Bloaters. Otherwise they're basically invincible I've found.

I'm now at the Eastern Colorado U. chapter. Just dropped down into the bottom floor of the dorm (i think), there's like 4 clickers and one bloater. I've attempted it like 3 times so far... Took the clickers out with arrows, then went after the bloater with a flamethrower and gun, only for him to proceed to rip my head apart, lol. I'm taking a break to do Insanity and then probably gonna get back on and see what I can do.

I played it through on Hard.

 

Had enough Shivs to take out the Clickers then flamethrower'd the Bloater (two prolonged bursts seemed to do the trick).

 

The door at the end of the hall way is locked/jammed so sadly you can't sneak past everyone. =(

Sorry to offend anyone who thinks this game was awesome, but my sense of awe wore off after the first hour or two when I realized all I was doing was the same repetitive ish in a cyclical manner non-stop, just so I could get to another overly emphasized cinematic cutscene. 

 

On top of that, I got so tired of the anxiety of dropping down into a secluded location only to find 10 clickers and a bloater and have to fight my way out in order to get back out of it...  Man, the game was stressful and the action was so repetitive and limited in those situations that it only added to the anxiety - it wasn't fun.  I just got to where I wanted to beat each situation so I could see what was going to happen next.

 

***SPOILER ALERT BELOW***

After heavily playing it for the first two days, I finally got to St. Mary's Hospital to deliver Ellie, only to have the convo with Marlene and find out that Joel no longer wants to save the human race...  WHAT?!?!  ARE YOU fuging SERIOUS?!?!?  I just spent almost 18 hours fighting off droves of humans and zombie-like creatures in dark, dank, desolate places with little to no help from AI comrades to deliver the cure to the human race on the otherside of the f'ing country, and NOW...  NOW YOU DECIDE YOU DON'T WANT TO GO THROUGH WITH IT?!?!  WHAT A fuging WASTE!

 

Look, I don't care if he started to look at her as a daughter, if that was a real situation and you fought your way to that point of survival so that she could provide the cure to the human race, you ENSURE it happens.  When I found out that Joel wanted to get her back out of surgery, I almost lost my poo.  It was at that point that I knew I couldn't get that 18 hours of my life back that I just wasted for no reason at all.  Give me a REAL happy ending...  You know, like them figuring out a cure and humans returning to humanity and rebuilding their world...  Not Joel turning into a bitch so he could take Ellie back to a life in a walled up town in which they could be killed in their sleep on any given day by other humans or infected non-humans.  Yup, sounds like an awesome life.  Sacrifice returning back to a normal life and rebuilding humanity as it once was thanks to Ellie's cure so that you can keep her as an adopted daughter to satisfy your own selfish spur of the moment feelings?  What are you gonna do?  Watch TV together?  Go fishing together?  Take her to the movies?  Teach her how to finally fuging swim?  You fuging idiot.  None of it is possible in the state of the world as it was in the game.  Solid, solid decision.

 

What a fuging idiot.

 

I actually got murked two different times on the final chapter to go get her out of the OR, so after basically realizing that the developers/writers of this game just wasted 18 hours of my life, I decided I didn't want to go through another repetitive battle with fake first-person autonomy in order to get to the next scene showing me what gifted voice-actors and writers the developers had assembled...  I googled the walkthrough and watched what happened instead.

 

EVEN WORSE.

 

So, not only do you not give Ellie up to find the cure...  YOU KILL EVERY fuging PERSON WHO BELIEVES IN AND WANTS TO FIND A CURE - THE FIREFLIES AND THEIR DOCTORS/SURGEONS.

 

LOL, fuging GENIUS.  I even read where people said they tried to avoid killing the surgeon in the final chapter so that they could find the cure eventually...  One hilarious scenario I read had some guy throwing a brick at the surgeon and it bounced off of him like a wall, lol...  THE DEVELOPERS OF THE GAME INSIST YOU KILL THE ONE SURGEON YOU KNOW OF IN THE GAME THAT CAN SAVE THE WORLD, lol.

 

At this point, I couldn't believe it...  UN-fugINGBELIEVABLE.  WHAT A HORRIBLE GAME.

 

I decided I was going to see if multi-player was any better and would make a decision on it...  Well, I beat the final chapter in about 5 minutes and was still disgusted with it.  Tried supply raid on multi-player and found it to be extremely unsatisfying and unimpressive, much like the storyline and gameplay itself in the single player mode.

 

I have no idea how this poo got a 10/10 from critics.  Who is happy with that ending?  Who is happy with walking behind some idiot that's going to turn into a carnivorous mushroom later as they yap away about how life used to be so that you can press triangle to help open the door for them into the next cutscene?  The game is really an 18 hour long movie with the gameplay just being a gateway to the next riveting cinematic scene. 

 

Other than that, here is the game in a nutshell:

 

Going to find the Fireflies lab.  Found it.  Hey, schucks, no one is here, wonder where they all went?  Hey, WTF gaiz?!?!  We're now trapped inside of building with numerous enemies closing in, I guess we'll have to fight our way out.  We got out!  Let's go to the next deserted location and do the same thing!

 

Wash.  Rinse.  Repeat.

 

I sold it back to Best Buy yesterday and bought myself a new bluetooth with the difference, lol.

I watched a couple hours of a play through today.  This seems like a very solid game.  It looks like the gameplay was a little weak/repetitive but the story looks top notch.

Work finally is starting to slow down, so after owning the game for almost 2 weeks, I got to start playing last night. My god, it's glorious!  I honestly don't care if the whole thing plays exactly like the linearity of the first couple chapters, the plot, action, graphics and voice acting are just amazing. I wish more movies were this entertaining.

This game reminds me a lot of Alan Wake from a few years back, which I greatly enjoyed playing. Gameplay here is deeper, but the feel, visual style, and overall mechanics have a lot in common to me.

I've been listening to the soundtrack a lot at work recently. I love how guitar heavy it is, plays well straight through, helps to zone out in computer work.
