Gaming In The Wild #11: The Last of Us, Neo Cab & Paper Mario

by John Rogers


With The Last of Us 2 and Paper Mario: Origami King about to drop, I decided to backtrack and play the last entry in each series for the first time.


With no spoilers beyond basic early-game plot points, I discuss my experience at the halfway point of The Last of Us, praising its world building, character development and notable cohesion.


Neo Cab is praised for its intimate and well-rendered nocturnal taxi driver story.


Paper Mario: Sticker Stars comes in for some critique for falling foul of basic point 'n' click tropes. Finally, I discuss the downside of Jedi: Fallen Order's Metroid-inspired level design.

The Last Of Us Remastered is available to play on PlayStation 4, and free for PSNow subscribers. The soundtrack by Gustavo Santaolalla is here


Neo Cab is currently on offer on Steam. Get the soundtrack at obfusc.bandcamp.com


Paper Mario: Origami King comes out on Nintendo Switch on July 17th.
