Her soul still remains in this game because she, along with the other staff, helped to shape this series since the beginning.

Her work had to be scrapped for some reason, and in the end it worked. Besides, she still got paid for her work. I'm sure she understood the situation

i dont feel that she had a significant role on ND's games (yes i know her iMDb cv)...probably that she left wasnt only her decision after all

Goldby2999d ago

so does that mean we can give the credit for Tomb Raider to Naughty Dog too for their Crash Fomula as you put it....

Yes clearly UC1 was a success because of the Jungle temple environment, and UC2 to adding Snow. wheres the temples in Last of Us?

The story is what drew us all in, and the story is what kept us coming back for more. the environments were just eye candy. SWEET GLORIOUS EYE CANDY!

I really hope later, once we've all played it, she'll tell us the differences in the plot

Sam sounded like a full on evil villain in the reveal...that has to be a plot point.

"Some chains can never be broken. I lost 15 years, buried alive, erased. You left me, rotting in that hell hole and never looked back. But you can't out run the past and when catches up and all your lies collapse around you, I'll be there sifting through the wreckage...YOU OWE ME"

How bloody epic does that sound

jb2272998d ago

It does sound pretty epic but to be honest I think that Rafe will end up being some special, possibly moreso than Stashwick as Sam would've been.

To me Rafe's line in the trailer "You can turn around & leave now, or you can stay and die" (something to that effect anyway) gave me even more chills than Stashwick's Sam did with his line. I think this'll be a star making turn for Rafe's voice actor to be honest.

I would definitely love to hear what Amy planned to do with UC4 though for sure. Hell even better it'd be cool if Sony commissioned Visceral to make the next Uncharted somewhere down the line & let Amy helm it. I honestly think that Visceral's Dead Space was the only game that even came close to Uncharted last gen in terms of style & presentation, and I think an Uncharted game would be a challenge they may be uniquely suited for. They are one of the very few devs that could create another Uncharted & potentially do it justice for me.

Give me Straley and Druckmann. They make the best games on that team. I believe they did most of Uncharted 2, which was definitely better than Uncharted 3 which Hennig did most of the creative work for. They were busy creating Last of Us when they split the team up to work on Uncharted 3 development alongside Last of Us. Now, most recently their newest masterpiece Uncharted 4.

You gotta appreciate the talents of the industry
I don't know how she contributed
Whatever she did ..

Sweetbrandigirl2999d ago

She wishes there was something of hers still in there but Naughty Dog has said many times they scraped EVERYTHING she did when the dynamic duo took over. what she's expressing is pure Jealousy

NarooN2999d ago

You remind me of the insane TLoU fanboys who were shitting on her when it got revealed that she was leaving ND and essentially being replaced by the other two guys. It was interesting how suddenly she was demoted to being a "hack" and apparently everything she ever did was mediocre or trash. Gotta love the fanboys on this site.

kevinsheeks2998d ago

I remember lmao crazy isn't it

Sweetbrandigirl2998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

" She got replaced by the other two guys " Really ? Those other two guys are Bruce Stanley and Neil Druckman two of the best game deveopers in the business. She' quit because she was pissed when Naughty Dog told her the work she'd done on UCII wasn't up to par and wasn't meeting their expectations.

Ahmay2998d ago

uncharted 2 is my favorite of the 3 so far.... loved the whole marco polo thing..

NarooN2998d ago


You did nothing to help your case with that comment. Nice job being emblematic of the developer worship that is so ludicrous yet characteristic of these site communities. Also it's nice how you fabricated the reason she left whilst also pretending that she was the only one who was responsible for that game. Exactly the kind of comment I was referencing back in the aforementioned time of Bruce & Neil worship thanks to TLoU. Grow up.

Appropriate slip of the tongue from you there possibly ; 'scraped' as in took a sample to be used , rather than entirely scrapped.
