@OP, Tap decided not to post a couple months back due to all the trolls around here. Eugenides is busy IRL due to getting ready for college and Scoot, well he's MIA and I haven't seen him on PSN for a couple of days.
Naughty Dog brought all of them to their studio to finalize the testing on 1.13. This was done because they are three of the most opinionated (respectfully) forumers, and represent a good swath of the community.
Here's to hoping 1.13 is WORTH the wait FGS!
