Leaving ND for 343
Great addiction to the Halo franchise. The textures in naughty dog games are second to none
Naughty Dog's biggest problem has always been keeping their talents from being head hunted after a blockbuster game.
@ lxeasy Nooooo...! how did y'all get him, We need him for Uncharted 5..... LMAO :) All jokes aside that is one talented dude, best of luck to him and congrats on grabbing a good one, he will indeed help 343 shine....
As one of the best development studios in the world today Naughty Dog has become the stepping stone for many of the industry's most talented developers who want to make a name for themselves. Do not mistake these news as a negative against ND rather a compliment.
As funny as this sounds... I always wondered what it would be like if an exclusive dev made a game for a different platform. This is not quite the same but taking his talent to another team and using different tools now to achieve the best he can on the hardware he is given sort of fits. When insomniac went and made SO, that game is fun as hell but obviously its success was marred by bad press of the console as a whole. That didnt stop them from making a really well crafted game for a platform holder that was different to what they were used to.
Didn't Bungle help ND with the UC2 MP? Seems like there's a connection between Nathan Drake and master chief LOL. Maybe Master Chief truly is Nathan Drake
Probably the best thing to put on your resume that you worked for Naughty Dog but many get burnt out there which is why some may leave. They work crazy hours.
Stepping stone!? Aside from money, go ND to 343I is a downgrade. Yeah, he probably will get more money and perhaps a better position but he will lose ND freedom to work on new projects and will become a "Halo slave". Freedom to work on new projects or become "Halo slave", your pick.
i hope to take Neil Druckman also ...ND doesnt need him
I hope Neil stays until retirement so he continues to annoy sexist, homophobic and socially self centred gamers.
@genuine user.....none of the above characterizations has even a tiny relation with me and i know you are nt referring to me ;)....though no matter your innuendos , i still dont like Druckman because he doesnt like games (if you ever understand what i mean ) edit i see you v edited you comment :) ;)
He's a great story teller though, as long as he makes great games i'm cool. He's definitely on a quest to show the gaming world that women are just as capable. As long as Ellie isn't wrestling and knocking out 240pound men I'm fine. New gameplay looked amazing, loved her dodges, I'm glad they kept it grounded.
You work for 343?
@Genuine-User Well said!
Nice! They really aren't messing around with this Halo. I have a feeling they're going to pull off something incredible like make an entire halo ring explorable... the ENTIRE RING WORLD!😳...🤔 INFINITE 😱
@IXeasy if i remember correctly it is because ND hand paint the textures on instead of overlaying them on an asset. that is one reason why their games take forever to release i could be wrong, but hopefully he brings that experience and practice with him
Now that Phil is VP, things are finally looking up to Xbox! Good Job Xbox Team!
Maybe they could learn and incorporate a thing or two
"Addiction" is never great, if he has an "addiction" he should get help right away.
Much needed addition, much needed!!!
MS needs all the help they can get!
MS or Xbox? Because trust me, MS doesn't need help from anyone. Have you seen their bottom line?
Now if they could only get 1 of Naughty Dogs story tellers to join 343 that might be something amazing. Story wise was the only real draw back of h5.
Nah. People don't want the next Halo be one big cutscene or a walking sim.
That's such an idiotic statement.
It doesn’t need to be like that. But it need to have good character development and good story. That was problem with Halo 5 Campaign. It was lack of story and lack of character development. So yes, Halo Infinite need to find a way to tell a good story and good character development just like Halo 1, 2 and 3. You hate a good story game, aren’t ya ? Do you care about good story and memorable character ? Or you just hate it ? God of War have been praised by critics and consumer for telling a great story, great character development and great gameplay. The thing is that people will remember a good story and good character for many years to come.
I don't see why not, you sure don't mind playing with scripted Labo 4K Krakens.
Stupid comment. Sorry but thats just ridiculous to liken the masterpieces of ND to mere cutscenes. Self-deception & Stupidity...
Oh look you don't know what your talking about.
you sure? The next halo was some environments and wild boars running. Its not even Halo 6 so idk about all that
Hahaha I've never heard anyone refer to ND games as walking sims. Thanks for that much needed laugh my friend. Now I'm gonna go back to playing the masterpiece that is The Last of Us on my Pro. On topic, congrats to both 343 and the texture artist. I'm sure his addition will help boost Halo Infinite to be the best game it can possibly be.
Lol good one deep throat
So, I guess you're not going to jump for joy about this like everyone else? Good old Deep-throat. Never change.
Yeah, they actually just need Halo to be good. Cause Halo 5 sucked.
"Nah. People don't want the next Halo be one big cutscene or a walking sim." This dude lmao! Must be very angry at Sony for Beating MS at every level.. God bless you Dude.. MS needs every help they can get Specially for these milking franchisee to save the Franchisee.. HALO sucks now and I hope it gets back to what it was before..
Wasnt the entire big fight in Halo 5 a big cutscene? They dont need help with that.
Have you ever played an Uncharted game? The storytelling is quite superb.
That is the most idiotic steament i have been reading the last days. But its D.T. One off the most buthurt xboxfanboys on this site
Lol just no, the story of Halo is majestic (excluding 5 of course)
Id replace majestic with garbage but thats my opinion and many others. The 343 industry games just cant be compared to the bungie 1s... storywise.
@paintedgamer Pressing buttons on interactive movies is what i call garbage but hey that's my opinion
It doesn’t need to. But it need a good story and a good character. Trust me, people will remember a good story for many years to come.
Of course idiots like you follow the herd and keep implying ND games are walking sims. Sorry, Naughty dog don’t make interactive movies like Quantum Break.
Halo 5 did need some work on the story, but Halo has always had a good story. That's why there are so many books; the lore and mythology are just that good.
@Sunny Yeah yeah cry some more kid
@angoiner You're the only one who's crying bro. It must REALLY upset you that Naughty Dog games are so much better than your precious Halo. Let me know when a Halo game receives anywhere near as many awards and 10/10's as The Last of Us.
Hahaha yes that story of Halo 5.. so majestic and memorable " Pressing buttons on interactive movies is what i call garbage but hey that's my opinion" Lmao o you're talking about Detroit? Funny, i havent played a new IP exclusive game on xbox one with a story that comes close to that of Detroit.
So you want Sony inside 343 lol
Ubisoft level downgrade... Lel, just kidding... All the best lad...
Even the artists ms is buying them.....
Most accomplished artists have worked at other companies, unsure how else you hire someone.
LOL wtf, are they supposed to breed artists from birth in cages?
Nooo, open the door to new ones.... But dont get me wrong that is gopd mpve on the side ofnthe artist... New experiences are the best for your grow.... To be honest i just wanted to make a little fun of ms.... That is all....
Sure! Isn't that essentially how Spartans are already made? /s
@dreue ND wasn't his first gig. So that means, using your logic, Naughty Dog bought Rgelio (as you so eloquently put it) from someone else.
Having Naughty Dog in your resume is indeed an instant hire.
Ok. Thats pretty cool for 343.
One man's treasure, is another man's....treasure. Great pick up for 343.
Excellent. The better place to be.
His comment legit made me spit out my coffee. Everybody knows that Naughty Dog is BY FAR the better studio. 343 must've offered him one hell of a paycheck.
@BiggerBoss 4 Disagrees to your comment, yet factually ND IS the better Studio.
Let's see what he can do with more powerful hardware.
@G3ng4r The original Socom's did not suck. One of the best shooters to play when console online was just becoming a thing. The later games started sucking until they shut down. Kind of like Halo. But instead of the devs shutting down, they WANTED to leave Microsoft. MS must have been hell to work for. LMAO. 343 industries is trying but can seem to replicate Bungie's success.
To be fair, not even bungie can replicate bungie's success.
if you wanna make mediocre shit nobody cares about sure. Cant wait to see Infinite be another shitty Halo game. 343 has no talent.
Oh dear. You upset? 😂
Halo 5 might not have been the best in the series but it's still better than any FPS Sony can come up with. Sony have nailed the third person stooooryyyyy games. Horses for courses and all that.
