Everything You Can Do In The Last Of Us 2’s [SPOILER] Room
This room in The Last of Of Us: Part 2 includes several cool elements, such as a hidden reference to one of Naughty Dog’s original games.
[WARNING: Spoilers for early levels of The Last of Us Part 2 below.]
Players can spend countless hours exploring in The Last of Us: Part 2 , and one early game location is absolutely packed with tiny secrets. Despite not being open-world, the game has an expansive and free-roam feel thanks to the countless objects and locations players can discover and explore.
One of the coolest scenes from the beginning of the game happens when Dina and Ellie stumble upon a stoner’s paradise while on patrol. One of their friends was keeping a secret bunker room in which he was growing cannabis, clearly enough to fuel the entire village. But since the two girls appear surprised upon their discovery, it seems like this massive load of weed is the village’s best-kept secret.
There are a few key things to explore in The Last of Us 2’s weed room, and if players move through the scene too quickly, they’ll likely miss them. So, taking one’s time to properly search and explore is a must when stumbling upon the weed room in The Last of Us Part 2 for the first time.
The Last of Us 2’s Reference To Crash Bandicoot
Perhaps one of the coolest (and first) things Ellie can find in the room is a stack of old adult videotapes. She and Dina read the names of the two titles out together, which included “Dong of the Wolf” and “Smash Brandi’s Cootch.” The first title is a clear referenced to “Song of the Wolf,” a story about the struggle of Native Americans in the 1800’s. In a vulgar way the title is somewhat fitting, considering Ellie and Joel have been trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland for two decades.
The second video’s title is an even better reference. “Smash Brandi’s Cootch” is a play on the original Naughty Dog title Crash Bandicoot, a franchise that has been around since the ‘90s. This isn’t the first time Naughty Dog has put a reference to Crash Bandicoot in one of their newer titles. In Uncharted 4, for example, players get to play a mini version of the game when protagonist Nathan Drake is enjoying a bit of PlayStation at home in one of the opening scenes. It feels like a fitting nod that Naughty Dog would include this tiny Easter Egg so early on in The Last of Us 2’s story.
Where The Last of Us 2’s Gas Mask Bong Is
Another thing Ellie can pick up and observe in The Last of Us 2’s weed room is a gas mask bong. If players have her walk past the stack of videotapes, she’ll pick up a makeshift gas mask bong. The bong appears ironic, considering the villagers have to use gas masks all the time to keep from becoming infected from pores in the air. When Ellie looks closer, she realizes the bong is hand-made. “Oh god, he was so smart,” Dina says upon finding the bong, referring to their deceased friend.
Both Ellie and Dina agree they wish they’d been let on in the weed room’s secret location so they could have helped grow the stash and keep it alive. Despite there being countless weed plants around the room, they’re all dead and seemingly unusable. However, luck strikes when the girls find a mason jar packed with joints. The air-tight seal allowed the joints to stay fresh – well, smokable, at least – and Dina then breaks the jar on the floor so the two of them can light up. What proceeds from there happens to be one of the most touching moments of the game – and one in which the player realizes Ellie is officially all grown up.
The weed room is one of The Last of Us 2’s best early-game moments, and with several items and references to discover, it means players will want to take their time exploring it.This room in The Last of Of Us: Part 2 includes several cool elements, such as a hidden reference to one of Naughty Dog’s original games.
We did not say overnight and Bong Thom. Instead, we had the inestimable pleasure to eat and be entertained here. The food was unsurpassed during our several days in Siem Reap. The musical entertainment was a treat. Best of all, however, was the knowledge that our patronage would help its owner continue to provide free afternoon education for about 60 of the village’s children. In the corrupt country that is Cambodia, education is neither compulsory nor tax-funded. If families cannot afford to educate their children — and very many cannot — then the children receive no education. It is heartbreaking. It was our very great pleasure to have dined at Bong Thom, and an even greater pleasure to have made a contribution to the continuing education of this village’s children.

My wife and I are the big fans of foods and we have explored almost every restaurants town but The Bong Thom Home Stay foods are very delicous. Chai is the chef which is very creative and always combined the food between Cambodian traditional to modern decoration. Chai and his staff are very welcome and helpful, they would do anything to satisfies you while you are there for lunch or either staying at Bong Thom Home Stay. We have spent our week-end and we found this place is perfect for people who escape from the crowded cities. Relax and peaceful and you will receive many fresh air in the middle of remote area. the location is middle of the temple area and you are able to visit any temple during you are there at the Bong Thom Home Stay.

Situated 20min by car from Siem Reap you can find this incredible homestay where you can hide away from the cities madness and just chill out or explore the Angkor temples at your own pace. The homestay has several bedrooms wich offers basically all you may need to make your stay comfortable. 24hrs electricity is provided but no WiFi anyhow, if you stay in a place like this you really are not looking to be conected are you? Homestay also offers food (very nice, tasty & organic as they grow it onsite) and transportation to temples or city. As said previously . would stay here if you are looking for peace & quiet. 100% recomended Stayed August 2014, traveled with friendsWelcome to The Bong Thom Homestay, a unique community-based tourism site which captures the essence of village life in the heartland of Cambodia.
