    My god, what is going on over at Sony? Amy Hennig leaves Naughty Dog and now Jack leaves Sony? They are doing such a great job, why are all of these people leaving?

    Can you elaborate ? DE was conspiracy and Illumanati and transhumanism and black Shades and Coats.

    WD is hacking and conspiracy and browncoats.

    Because any game that deals with the uncontrolled use of technology with all its moral grey areas I start thinking Deus Ex before I start thinking Watch Dogs.

    Yeah, if there is one thing I have not thought about with Watch_Dogs, it is Deus Ex. When I think of Deus Ex, I think of Ghost in the Shell. When I think of Watch_Dogs, I think of Assassin's Creed in the real world.

    ...That just means that they were. When ever you have a company come out and make a statement like that it just means the opposite of what they're saying.

    Not when the entirety of the Internet has blamed them with no evidence for it. I'd release a statement saying they weren't if I were them.

    I can see, where you're coming from; on this whole situation Haloid1177. Maybe Naughty Dog was going to let her go after her part in Uncharted 4 was done and she just decided to leave earlier than expected. And maybe Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann unintentionally or intentionally behind closed doors said something that led to Amy Hennig leaving. Until more of what happened is disclosed the perception of what everyone believed happened is going to be truth for the time being.

    As far as I am concerned, all that matters is that she left. I don't care how or why she left, she is gone.

    @ Dr Kain and I think that that is the main issue here. But again she was the head writer for Uncharted 1 - 4 she wasn't the Director of any of the 4 titles in the series she was the writer. Writers tend to be let go for a multitude of reason Dr Kain either for fulfilling their contract violating their contract or simply because a studio doesn't need their services on any projects.

    Depends how much he's saving, if it takes him until December, he'll probably have 4 decent games to buy.

    there's probably 4 okay games, depending on what you're into.

    There's already quite a few games I'd play, I'm just waiting till their price reflects something I'd feel comfortable paying.


    I'm not surprised. It's had that crazy momentum, but lets see if they can maintain that. I feel bad for Wii U though.
