Basically, I’m fucking furious.
Yea, Naughty Dog is large studio, but Im pretty sure something like this was an honest mistake. So, rather than taking the mature approach of contacting Naughty Dog, the author decides to take to Tumblr and complain to the Internets first.

Why does the Kinect sensor need to always be on and watching me? Given that the Xbox announcement was only two weeks away from E3, naturally I assumed t
David Hayter (Original voice actor for Solid Snake):
“Great actor, good man. The game will probably still be excellent. Like New Coke!”
A lot of people are under the impression this is all an act, and Hayter’s voice may very well appear in the game. I really have my doubts, but Kojima has shown the lengths he’s willing to go to mess with gamers…so anything may happen.
