Aunoma (Zelda Director) bashing Naughty Dog?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Edited by drekula2 (1947 posts) -

In Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, at one point in a cave, a girl tells you "There's no honor among thieves".

Is this perhaps a swipe at Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2 game?

Aunoma is just jelly that he's never had a game that scored a 95 on Metacritic.

For shame Aunoma.

There's a sign in another Zelda that says "Press the A button to attack!" another clear jab at Naughty Dog and their reliance on quick time events. Good job Zelda!!!

Pretty sure it's a swipe at Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. Or any other game with that in the title. Or that uses that saying. Or any medium really.

Seriously TC, wtf...

so thats 2 sony games that he bashed.

years ago I read an interview where Miyamoto said that their developers don't play other games to keep their ideas fresh or something. lol

You don't have much exposure to pop culture, do you? That is an extremely common phrase describing the behaviour of thieves. It's been around for decades in film, television and literature.

@drekula2: So you made a whole thread just to make a sarcastic remark. Talk about narcissism.

They even say that in Uncharted......

You are aware that at the time most people, especially Nintendo fans despised the art-style of Wind Waker?

I was one of the people who supported the art style greatly. But was angry that the gameplay was left unchanged. I felt like Nintendo had gone into FPS territory.

I'm offended.

This is being too yolo with trolling.

Clearly you haven't found the other much less subtle sign that reads "Naughty Dog blows goats."

Um, no, it's the complete opposite. People ignored that it was the best Zelda ever created because "it looks kiddie".

Thanks for the spoiler, jerk.

I refuse to believe TC is this dumb.
I'll just assume this is a (horrible) troll thread.

Who wouldn't mock Naughty DoG... imo Uncharted is the worst of their franchises, they have done far better.

Nobody would of looked at the games twice if it wasn't pushing the PS3's graphics... gameplay wise nothing but corridor, bad/basic shooting mechanics... rince and repeat. like an inferior gears of war or tomb raider..

That is obviously a jab at PC gamers.

Exactly. Nobody cared about ND before UC2 and UC2 just happened to had great graphics for a PS3.

And not because it's dungeons are horribly designed or it's overworld is a pain to travel through.

Zelda insults Uncharted...there are three uncharted games; on the ps3...which means Half-lIfe 3 confirmed!! Amidoinitrite?
