  1. Excellent stuff, quite an honour indeed. Looking forward to that next Star Wars project.

  2. Amy best pray that EA don’t alter her deal.

    What? It’s Star Wars and EA is often regarded as the gaming version of the Imperial Empire. Fine, i won’t make that joke again. Stupid TSAers and their silent judgements of judging.

    I will admit, when i read the title, i went “who?” but i don’t really pay attention to credits in games. Most, tend to be boring or the perfect time to put on a cuppa. But it is good to see someone getting recongised for their work. Now, if only David Hayter could get an award for his 2 decade tenture as Solid and Naked Snake from Konami?

    I do hope that the minoirty of grade A ***** won’t attack her or threaten to do really shitty things to her because she is a woman. That minority tends to attack any female developer or anyone involved with gaming. I hate that minority. And no, i am not Trump. I merely hate that ***** minority that puts all of us in a bad light.

  3. Well deserved, she’s had a long and distinguished career.

  4. Outstanding work and well deserved!

  5. Good for her. And good on the BAFTAs for acknowledging her incredible contribution to the industry and her many accomplishments over the years.
