This was pretty damning

Anyway, more graphical sparkles for ND! Can't wait for their PS4 title.

343 has lost some big names in the last year+. Not a good sign for them.

 

Wonder if it has any connection to the Crash rumours.

They need to get rid of almost everyone who worked on Halo4. This is nothing but good news IMO.

So every developer has to say they enjoyed working with Windows 8 or else they fit into your categorisation? Its not like Windows 8 is universally praised and this opinion sticks out.

She probably did work on D3D for WinRT thus Windows 8 by extension.   You shouldn't read into it too much.  She's working on something else/new is all.

The visuals in Halo 4 were one of the only good things about that game. They had the perfect opportunity to do something interesting with that series, but they opted for the status quo.

Well, still never heard of her. Halo 4's graphics is extra-ordinary but that's because it is unlike any Halo before it. Small playable areas combined with somewhat linear gameplay - of course it had more horsepower for better IQ. I played couple of levels of Halo3 campaign last night, reminded me why I hate Halo4's campaign/MP.

If she is really good, then good news for ND team I guess.

Her Windows 8 remark is puzzling to me. What does it have to do with Halo/PS4!

More importantly than where she came from is where she went.

 

Naughty Dog are great developers and its good to see they are expanding.

Maybe it was in regards to Halo 5? (Microsoft Studios and 343)

- Original developers of Halo (Bungie) are now doing 'Destiny' which means next allotments of Halo wont be like Halo 1, 2 or 3.

Really? I think Halo 4's SP is the only redeeming quality it has, minus the lack of a plot. It has varied gameplay, gorgeous graphics and fun to play.

 

The MP was broken and is all but dead now, which by the community's opinion is the reason the game sucked. Even Halo 3 managed to overtake it with GwG promotion.

 

Maybe her Win8 comments are to do with X1's architecture change and working on Win8 kernel. I doubt she just added it in as a chance to say she doesn't like it. Must be involved in her workflow somehow.

She's worked on DirectX,  there are number of changes in Windows 8.1 around DX specifically, so I'm guessing that's where her comments come into play.  The comment as a whole is about working on new (PS4 graphics design) and not working on what she was before (Windows 8.x graphics/DX etc).   That's all there is to it.  You guys don't need to read into it or make it seem like more than it is.

 

As far as Halo 4, I enjoyed the SP, and I played MP a bit and didn't have a problem with it personally but I'm not a hardcore MP player in general.  I liked the idea of winning things in MP for streaks and then getting to pick a different weapon drop or shield boost or w/e.  I didn't care for loadouts, I always used my same setup over and over and never trying different ones.

Good for Naughty Dog, always expanding.

Not much else to read there. I wouldn't try to find more issues.

Look, don't get me wrong. I enjoyed playing Halo4's SP but it still lacks compared to others before it. I can still put in Halo1/2/3 heck even Reach and still remember levels and explore the levels. Halo 4 doesn't have that sense of exploration, sound design is poor, weapons sound weak. As I said, I played Halo 3's "Crow's Nest" last night. Even the explosions sound grand compared to Halo 4.

For Naughty Dog and PlayStation gamers. Maybe with her Windows 8 experience Naughty Dog will go PC if not multiplat console. They are the best in the business IMO.

That would be crazy. I'm sure people that don't own a ps4 would love to see Naughty Dog's talents spread to the pc and other console.

Still, I'm just glad they are around to set a high bar.

Sony own ND so unless they bought themselves out they aren't going MP.
