Seconded, although I will say while most commenters have added little, SarcasticJoe has been reasonable in his defense of the game. It’s possible to have an intelligent discussion about this, most people just aren’t willing to.
There’s no way you can read Vlambeer’s response and believe they thought the criticism was stupid or unreasonable.
I find it amazing the number of people who came here to write that people shouldn’t be offended, when the developers themselves explicitly said its a legitimate response.
Very excited. I’d been meaning to get to Last Light since it was a PS+ game, but I definitely think I’ll wait now.
Yeah, I don’t mean to imply that the game won’t be different because these two have left – if that was the case, there would be no point in having them around in the first place – but different doesn’t mean worse. I just don’t assume this means the game or studio are in any trouble.
I may be crazy, but I don’t think people who are forced out have another job lined up to announce at the same time.
“What do you call it when you have two occurances and a deadline?”
I mean, I love a good overreaction as much as anybody, but we’re talking about two people. It takes a hell of a lot more than two people to make an Uncharted game. It’s entirely possible that these departures, high profile though they may be, will have no discernable affect on the final product.
