Last of Us 2 voice actor Laura Bailey shares death threats on Twitter

The voice of Abby from The Last of Us Part 2 is the target of online harassment. She took to Twitter in an attempt to stop this madness.

The Internet can be a dark and sinister place. Users are given anonymity on certain platforms, which can lead to some god awful behavior. This is the case in the current wave of hatred being spewed in the direction of voice actor Laura Bailey. Her role as Abby in The Last of Us Part 2 has drawn the ire of some of the worst people on the Internet, and they are taking it too far as only an unruly online mob can do. Laura shared some of the death threats she has been receiving online in a tweet earlier today. Check out the embed below.

No one should ever have to endure this level of hatred online or in person. It seems that most of the comments revolve around the character she played in The Last of Us Part 2. That’s right, a fictional character in a made up world. These people are willing to tell voice actor Laura Bailey that they will kill her.

Over a video game.

Our own Josh Hawkins reviewed the game and also sat down to talk about some of the big events in the game that have divided the community. Be sure to check out Josh’s feature The Last of Us didn’t need a sequel, but I’m glad we got one to read more on that topic.

The Last of Us Part 2 has been review bombed by a cohort of gamers who are very upset about something that happened in the game. This has likely been exacerbated by the game being leaked earlier this year. It is truly unfortunate that all of this is happening as Laura’s performance is truly a highlight in one of the finest games to be released this year. It would be nice if the Internet could stop being terrible for a minute. Wouldn’t it?

Onward Oculus Quest Multiplayer Livestream: Tactical VR FPS Action!

Avatar

Published

For today’s livestream we’re playing realistic military sim VR shooter, Onward on Oculus Quest! If you’re curious about how we livestream the way we do then look no further than this handy guide for general tips and this guide specific to our Oculus Quest setup.


Onward aims to be the ultimate VR FPS for those after an authentic-style military simulation. This is more like Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six than Call of Duty. Now that it’s been out for a full day we can verify the gameplay is just as fun as ever and we can’t wait to see how it evolves on Quest.

Our Onward on Oculus Quest VR livestream is planned to start at about 11:00 AM PT and will last for around an hour or two, give or take, depending partially on how well-behaved my small toddler child will be while left alone. We’ll be hitting just our YouTube and I’ll be streaming from my Oculus Quest, which will be using a Chromecast Ultra wireless cast signal, plugged into a Capture Card, to get the footage to my PC. I’ll do my best to keep up with chat by checking my phone when possible.

If you missed our launch day stream, you can catch that right here from yesterday.

You can watch the stream embedded via YouTube right here. Set a reminder if you’re reading this early!

You can see lots of our past archived streams over in our YouTube playlist or even all livestreams here on UploadVR and various other gameplay highlights. There’s lots of good stuff there so make sure and subscribe to us on YouTube to stay up-to-date on gameplay videos, video reviews, live talk shows, interviews, and more original content!

And please let us know which games or discussions you want us to livestream next! We have lots of VR games in the queue that we would love to show off more completely.

Polybius Dev’s Next Psychedelic VR Game Is Moose Life, Arrives In August

Avatar

Published

on

The developer of Polybius is bringing its latest VR game to Steam this August.

Llamasoft, a UK-based studio headed up by famed game designer Jeff Minter, is launching Moose Life on August 12th. A Steam page for the game is already up and running, which confirms the game will support Rift, Vive and Index. Check out some trippy gameplay Minter himself recorded earlier in the year.

If you know Llamasoft, then you’ll probably know what to expect from Moose Life. As with Polybius, Tempest 4000 and others before it, the game is a psychedelic ‘trance shooter’ in which players are subjected to a blaze of neon glory as they blow enemies into colorful neon particles. It’sd rooted in arcade origins with an emphasis on giving players a strong audio/visual sensation. Judging by that video, it’ll certainly achieve that goal.

As the name suggests, this time around you’ll be playing as a moose. At the very least, we couldn’t get you to name another VR game that casts you as a moose, right?

“Moose Life is the latest step on our journey into euphoric trance,” the developer notes on the Steam page. “Created in the style of an 80s arcade game, but in fully immersive 3D/VR. You’ll feel like you are inside the mind of Eugene Jarvis Himself.”

It’s reassuring to see the team still making VR titles. In 2018, Minter noted that its last VR game, the then-PS4/PSVR-exclusive Polybius hadn’t “made a penny”. The game later came to Steam, though it’s not clear if it found more success there.
