Naughty Dog comments on Ellie’s design and whether Ellen Page was a source of influence behind her look.
I hate when articles are written over a half a sentence blurb from a dev. “Ellie is a sum design of many different references.” This sentence didnt require an article
and to top that it was a community strategist from naughty dog that just replied to a comment on the blog.....
I came here thinking, "If this article was made based on the comment I read on the PSBlog by A GUY NOT PART OF ND, I'll lol" Lo and behold...
“Ellie is a sum design of many different references.” Ellen Page, Ellen Page, Ellen Page, Ellen Page, Ellen Page, Ellen Page, and Ellen Page.
you mean. Ellen Page in Hard Candy, Ellen Page in X-Men 3, Ellen Page in Juno, Ellen Page in Whip It, Ellen Page in inception, and Ellen Page in Super. right? ^_^
no money :(
Thanks for saving me time to not read it
Articles like this are why I always look at the comments on here first lol. I love you guys.
@crXss You know what? Why does everyone give a crap about Ellie looking like Elen Page? Seriously? I mean there are so many video game characters that look like celebrities or characters from movies. Here is some examples Big Boss(MGS)= Hugh Jackman http://www.videogamelookali... The new Max Payne= Jeff bridges http://www.videogamelookali... The Litch King(WOW)= The Witch King(LOTR) http://www.videogamelookali... Seriously... people need to calm down about this... I mean it does not matter what the character looks like, its how they act and make you feel. That's what defines a good character. Also, if you ask me if they did "copy" Elen Page, they did a really bloody good job of doing it because the character model looks amazing. Also, do you actually think Elen Page is the only person in the world who looks like that? There are so many other people whom share some likeness with her. http://t0.gstatic.com/image... http://t2.gstatic.com/image... http://t2.gstatic.com/image... http://t1.gstatic.com/image... (The last one made me lol) Trolls need to calm down, they only end up looking like fools cough *j-blaze* cough
Big boss/Snake are modelled after Kurt Russell in the escape from movis actually ;) Kojima even said it once, in fact MGS1 shares similar plot points too. Justin bieber one made me laugh as well, too bad N4G doesnt work on a top comment basis like youtube, this needs to be at the top to shut EVERYONE up :P
The examiner has made a career of writing 'articles' based on a single sentence, especially tweets. I don't know why they are even approved.
Even if ND actually used Ellen Page as the main source of inspiration, they just cannot say it until they have some official partnership. Otherwise, Ellen could very well ask to be paid just for that... It reminds me that stupid unknown rapper who wanted millions from Rockstar because he said they had based GTA San Andreas mais character on him...
lol i didn't know about that. who is that rapper?
If I remember it clearly, its that guy from Cypress Hill.
They Could secretly be planning a movie for "the last of us" with Ellen Page in mind. The plot used in a movie seems to be just as exciting.
Who...gives...a...$hit?.. like really..just let Naughty Dog do their thing... is it really that much of a problem for some of you?.. let magic happen mother flowers!
j-blaze Firstly, Ellen Page is known for her look as a troubled teen kind of role, not a super hot Angelina Jolie kinda hot. If you think about it, many girls have similar to the same features as Ellen Page. And she has that typical "girl next door" look to her. With that said, Ellie has some of those features, she doesnt look EXACTLY like her.
Who cares it's a video game character. Hope they dont pull a Dead Island and not use the characters from the trailer in the game.
So, are we just going to ignore the "Naughty Dog shocked the video game world when they unveiled a brand new title." Video game world shocked to discover video game developer is developing a new video game?
no, we're not ingoring it, we're wondering why you don't think it was a shock. it was the biggest shock in years. not only was we excited by the new title but when we dicovered it was from the best devs on the planet it went orgasmic... add to that the fact that no-one really expected ND to be able to have another game for a year or so and BAM!! best news since the release of the PS3 in my opinion if you have followed ND this gen you would understand. the best way i can describe it from a PS3 fans perspective is it's like half life 3 being suddenly revealed or metal gear solid 5.
Well,this article was a waste...
lol this article is stupid
anyone trying to say this isn't ellen page inspired is kidding themselves and are only trying to say otherwise to pointlessly defend naughty dog (because for some reason it looks like you guys are seeing it as an attack). It's obvious it's ellen page, she's very popular at the moment and the character doesn't look alike- she looks exactly alike and there's nothing wrong with that. God people gettin all defensive for no reason other than defendin the name of a developer they like even when it doesn't make sense. blaaaaaaaaaaaagh
Kay who cares if she looks like Ellen Page... Shes hot right ? ! ? good subject closed *
"when we designed zoe.... i mean Ellie..."
