Uncharted 4 Co-Director Pays Homage to Quantum Break’s Sam Lake: “Big Inspiration”

Over the past few months we have seen some refreshing examples of mutual respect between the teams at Remedy Entertainment and Naughty Dog.

While everyone is fihgting over" 5reason why ROTTR is better" and "Black people and other races were not in ww1, so BF1 musty be steampunk", these guys are actually having fun and inspiring each other.

Abriael2586d ago

To be fair, that ROTTR video is rather disgusting clickbait tinly veiled as poor satire. So I'm not surprised that people are fighting over it.

Since when weren't black people in WWI? Hell, black slaves fought on the Confederate side of the US Civil War.

But yes: someone from ND is bailing out QD after they stepped in internet.

Gazondaily2585d ago

Wow...unbelievable. Apparently people in the industry can't give credit to one another...

Absolutely pathetic..

Godmars2902584d ago


Again, yes: When a dev attempts to compliment a considered industry rival, inadvertently bring to question the quality and effort of their own product, the internet is going to call them on it. Likewise when a seeming industry rival offers positive comment after someone else apparently trips ups, that's going to be called for what it is as well.

Wait, are people really arguing that black people weren't in WW1? You'd think they would just do a simple Google search if they were unsure, but to argue that WW1 was just white soldiers fighting, is just idiotic.

Good to see Druckmann and Sam Lake, still showing each other respect, both incredibly talented and have help make some of my favorite games.

lol just read your comment, but that's exactly what I said.

Silly gameAr2585d ago

What those people don't seem to understand is that black people and other races WERE in WW1. I guess they need to get out of their basement to figure that out, but a simple google search would have been have been more then ok.

I like it when devs praise each other. Successful games drive the industry forward and raise tje bar for other devs to top it. However...

I grew up in the days where Naughty Dog and Insomniac were friendly rivals. That was the golden era of gaming with the PS2. It's pretty disheartening to me that ND didn't even bat an eye on Ratchet and Clank, and neither Insomniac will do the same for U4

Sunny_D2586d ago

Perhaps the people who worked for both Naughty Dog and Insomniac are no longer there. The people working at these studios now are new people who never had history with each other?

Picnic2585d ago

Ratchet and Clank is just like a reskinned Sonic Adventure 2. Silly public may go nuts over R&C ; devs, not necessarily.

DigitalRaptor2585d ago

Except R&C is a marvellous game.

Uncharted 4 is a serious step above, as the greatest game so far this generation and one of the best of all time. I'm pretty sure there are lots of people at Insomniac enjoying the heck out of UC4, just like there are plenty of folks at Naughty Dog enjoying R&C now that they are down tools. They aren't obliged to give each other an official nod.

I could play both of this two games too because I own an Xbox and a PS4 but I only will play Quantum Break. Uncharted never was and IP for me, it just bores me.

game4funz2586d ago

Give it another shot maybe it will surprise you this time.

Obviously since it may not be for you don't buy it at full price.

Quantum break is one of the best stories told all gen. Maybe uncharted trumps it.

Night992586d ago (Edited 2586d ago )

game4funz yes I thought quite the same thing, maybe I will grab Uncharted 4 after a year for cheap when it is on sale. I don't really like the gameplay of the Uncharted IP but the graphics are really nice to look at.

shabz6662585d ago

qb was awesome. maybe try uc4 on discount or something. those uc games are worth experiencing.

jb2272585d ago

How would someone like Quantum Break, an Action based, narrative focused TPS with a mix of story, gun play, puzzles & platforming, but be bored by Uncharted, an action based, narrative focused TPS with a mix of story, gun play, puzzles & platforming?

To each their own but there's a lot of obvious overlap in the target audiences for these games, and if Uncharted is "boring" you, chances are you are going in w/ a lot of hang ups, which is no fault of the game itself. The absolute last word I & most others would use to describe Uncharted is "boring".
