Thanks for posting, I wonder what does she wants to do next, if she decides to stay in game industry. I´ve read that she has been forced out, reminds me of her leaving Eidos...

This.

The chant from every LOK fan in existence.

and good riddance. I honestly think she was wasting her talent at Naughty Dog.

Amy Hennig and Rhianna Pratchett collaborating on LOK6 (hypothetically). What do you think?

Would retweet, but don't have an account.

Oh please no Rhianna Pratchett, she wrote poor stories for the new TR and Thief, don´t want her involved.

I would love it if she made a solo campaign for this game but just because its been made clear that that isn't what the Square Enix/Psyonics teams are interested in right now. Even if they were though, they would want to be the ones to make it since they have done so much already. Perhaps they might bring her in for a collaboration of sorts if they decide to make the campaign like they did for David with the classic skins.

Teen hero? lol xD But yes... I must say I wasn´t too impressed with the story of TR2013 either, it´s very cliché and predictable, though the game itself is well done.

I have heard from friends and reviews that the story in Thief doesn´t make too much sense, is this true?

I gave my thoughts on this here: http://mediablasphemy.com/2014/gaming/games-news/amy-hennig-leaves-naughty-dog/

I would really love Amy to return to Legacy of Kain, especially with the success of Uncharted behind her. I wonder if she's even thought about it?

Heh, well, a whole flood of people have been posting and tweeting to her asking her to do just that in the past few days, so I'm sure she's conscious that there's demand.

I can't say much about the story...although i can say i've read about 7 reviews, and what they all (usually) agreed on was that the game is enjoyable if you can overlook the story.
I was upset with this, but what really ruined if for me was their new envisioning of Garrett. He is so "Hip and Cool", god...
I feel like their target audience was teenage girls...

KEEP ON THE PRESSURE, PEOPLE :D

Good! I really hope she uses this as an opportunity. With her directing, LoK could come back in a big bad way :D

And I just saw on BBC news live four guys from Naughty Dog talking about a game I didnt catch the name and how they won six vidiogame baftas. The timeing seems to suck a bit.

As per Amy's Twitter, her talents will be ******* wasted on a Star Wars game for the foreseeable future.

Ugh...Star Wars, go away already.

How is getting yet another bad licensed game based on what has largely been reduced to a laughable franchise (if the prequels didn't do it, the numerous sad games did, especially that dancing one) good news?

Do you even know what you're saying?
They are a completely different company...It's the same as saying the new Star Wars movie is gonna suck, because the last one did (as example).

It is good news for the Star Wars game she is in, because we know what Amy is capable of...everything she touches turns into gold. Most notably LoK and Uncharted series.
