    Anyone else pick this one up? I just got my copy about to get started. I am a total Naughty Dog fan boy so I am sure I will love it.

    Might give it a try. Wasn't familiar with it until you posted but I like the Uncharted series By Naughty Dog.

    The story is a lot different but the quality is there. Gameplay so far isnt quite as fun as Uncharted but I am still very early on in the game.

    Heard nothing but glowing reviews. I'll pick it up, eventually. It's on the list.

    I think all she said was she would normally be flattered but since another game is paying her to act its not so cool. Game looks good but I am Xbox only. Sadly.

    I don't know, man, sounds pretty snobby and stuck up, to me.

    Is this girl not allowed to act since she kind of looks like Ellen Page?

    I dont know. In my opinion Ashley Johnson looks like Laura Dern nothing like Ellen Page. All of them attractive for their respective ages. I don't think they need to mod the game or apologize though. It's not exactly her.

    Yeah, that's the thing, they actually look nothing alike. She does kind of look like her in the video game. But the non-digital Ashley Johnson couldn't look much more different.

    Why does it matter if the actresses look alike at all? The character in the game does very much look like Ellen Page. In fact while playing I even wondered if they got her for the character because of the way Naughty Dog usually does their motion capture stuff.

    I dont have a problem with what she said in her AMA. As an actress she is paid for her likeness. And according to the article the character looked even more like her early on but was changed over time. Probably so they wouldnt be sued for using someones likeness without paying them like what is happening with the EA lawsuit.

    Finished it a couple of nights ago. Really, really excellent game from beginning to end. Naughty Dog hit it out of the park yet again.

    I'm near the end right now. Speechless.... Phenomenal game in every facet. A must buy, guys. This is probably one of, if not THE best game I've ever played.
