Does ND actually reply or say anything on here. I know I don't always post stuff on here but I do read and look at a lot of post on here and I haven't seen a dev talk on here at all.
Hopefully I am wrong, but I don't think Naughty Dog even reads our thread.
Eric posted once. I think we'll see him here more post-launch.
I think Arne made a thread way back when the game was announced but he doesn't seem to give a rat's about this forum so it's not likely we'll ever see him again.
Replying or communicating to us in any way? No. Watching silently absorbing the people's word? Maybe. I really hope they do at least read them, they'd be foolish not to because a lot of good ideas pop up here and there. When the game is released and we find a certain mechanic sucks balls yet we mentioned it frequently in the forums, then we can assume they may have barely read this thing at all.
I still have respect for the guys at ND, it's minimal no thanks to the state of U3's MP but it's still there.
