    She would turn Cate into another pathetic, "strong" feminist cardboard character. Please let the series RIP.

    None of Rhianna Pratchett's writing was any good while plenty of it was terrible, hopefully if NOLF actually comes up next on the list of shit that needs a cynical reboot they won't let her near it.

    I doubt anyone would fund this with games like Deus Ex: MD, Dishonored 2 and Prey underperforming, and all the focus being on online games right now. Also as the article says, the rights are all crazy. She could do a NOLF-a-like Kickstarter or something I guess.

    Please no, I can't suffer the "new" Lara croft. Better leaving Miss Archer to in the closet than this.

    Well winning a award for Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing is like winning a Gold Medal in the Special Olympics.

    Case in point, Bethesda also won an award for writing with Fallout 3. Probably the same thing, don't care enough to verify

    The Tomb Rider game she wrote was hilarious, all characters being awful cardboard characters and Lara stopped being a badass sexy woman to become a whinny brat with dad issues that somehow sees enlightenment after killing a certain number of faceless mooks. It was like watching Caleb from Blood writing love poems after discovering love because he killed alot of cultists. She wants the rights not because she cares about the character but because she wants to vandalize another female character.

    Terry Pratchett's daughter. Just be happy she isn't laying her hands on Discworld.

    I'm not sure that'll last, but I am happy about it. It's theoretically possible that she's not a shabby writer and her writing gets corrupted in the process of game development, especially since she writes for action games, but given Mirror's Edge being an absolute pile of shit story-wise and the new Lara Croft games I wouldn't really bet on it.

    The Operative: No One Lives Forever is the only good game that Monolith Productions ever made. So I'm okay with this.

    I really hope she sticks to this, but considering how her ego expands with everything she writes.

    She'll probably be calling her late father a shitlord in a couple of years.

    Well I dont think Square Enix was happy about those games performances, I would not say the problems are just the writing but the writing wasnt good either.

    And I am sick and tired of all female protagonists having father issues, hell even Samus got one in Another M ... I could say its hilarious seeing all these so called progressive writers just being unable to come up with anything but the root and motivation being simply "daddy". Hell look at what they did with Chloe in that (I hope) last Uncharted game were Chloe suddenly have daddy issues and Nadine had daddy issues in the previous ... I suppose we should be thankful he didnt ruined Elena character despite being a retreading as Drake got stuck with the suddenly brother issues because its 2015 and FAMILY ... God, I hate like its impossible to find characters that go beyond that as motivation.

    And if Lara Croft ended up having then despite originally she was just a orphan that survived the plane crash that killed her parents, Cate Archer would had then too despite the first game having Bruno apparent death as part of her motivation (not her sole motivation) so it would not exactly make much sense but hey, Lara Croft had little if any motivation about her family and we seen the shit that come with the new Lara.

    Well, the original character motivation of Lara Croft was that after surviving the plane crash in the Himalayas she could no longer stand the aristocratic life her parents had given her and was later disowned by them. It was only later in Legend it was shifted more towards mommy issues with the rebooted reboot becoming daddy issues.

    The original Lara is still the best. She was just ruthless and focused without the need to have an asthma attack every time she talks or crying about something trivial while somehow being a complete psychopath at the same time.

    I would love to finally have NOLF 1 and 2 on GOG, maybe even a remaster could be a good thing (like the ones made by Nightdive Studios), but a reboot made by the writer of Rise of the Tomb Raider... I'd rather the IP stay dead if that's the alternative.
    If she likes the female spy concept so much, she can propose her own new character, instead of relying (and probably ruining) Cate Archer.

    Nobody cares enough to figure out the rights, the money a GOG/Steam release would earn isn't worth the effort and expense. Given that, I think the chances of a remaster are pretty much nil. There's an easy to use repack out there though, that even mods in widescreen support IIRC.
