David Jaffe can be a bit of a joker at times, and while many are anxiously waiting to see what his new studio “the Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency” is working on, he decided to pull a fast one on the internet.
Quit messing with our heads and hearts, DJ!
That was hilarious, tho.
HOW WAS HILARIOUS WHEN IT WAS AGAINST ME!!!?!!!??!?!!!? ;p
David Jaffe and hilarious don't belong in the same sentence.
^ Neither do XBLSkull and unbiased.
I never take him serious in a good way, now I think he is doing a me GOW game. In the documentary of GOW franchise David jaffe and the director of GOW2 both said they had their own vision of how GOW3 plays and ends, so I would love for them to maybe do something around those ideas I know this will never happen but how about 2 mini GOW3 director editions one done by jaffe other done by the GOW2 director(he just came back to SSM and I should remember his name) Whatever jaffe is working on I am very interested, to me this is one guy who cares about fans enough and not just about money.
It would also be pretty cool if they got Jaffe to carry on w/ his original vision of changing mythologies while maybe letting Ready at Dawn or someone else at Santa Monica continue Kratos' story (if they have one to keep telling). I doubt Jaffe would ever revisit Kratos but I could see him sinking his teeth into a different God of War in a new mythology.
Outside of GOW, has he really done anything great? Not trying to knock him, most people don't make even one hit game but it's difficult to compare him to designers who have created several hit titles. There was talks that Corey is the one that really made the combat system what it was -- but he _seems_ to have a big ego so I am not sure how true that is. Stig did well on GOW 3, IMO the best in the series (or at least tied with GOW 2) but it seems his latest project didn't go so well since he left SSM. I am keeping my expectations low for Jaffe's next project. Plus I feel for all the artists who worked for his last company, only to see him shut it down and start up a new one. When you run a company you have to take some responsibility for the people who work for you but I don't know the details. I also don't feel he's as honest as everyone feels he is, to get to that position from a playtester, where he started, you'd have to do a lot of the right moves to get into the position where people will give you funding for a big game -- and it rarely means being completely honest. He also said artists who have worked on horrible projects don't have the right to complain which hit me personally. Anyone who has been mistreated, by their boss or by anyone else, has the right to complain afterwards.
@eezo It isn't a troll post if no one is being trolled. That already happened. This is just a description of it.
its better we left it to moderator to decide whether this submission should go through or not, ticket has been raised..
Looks like you're really going out of your way to hinder a perfectly valid post. There are a ton of parody posts on N4G, and this is actually more relevant than those, as it's actually about a developer doing something hilarious and fully related to games, which is news, and not something someone just made up for giggles.
That's Kojima level trolling. I'm impressed.
No it's not. It's lame. Kojima is always original. The Moby Dick studio and PT are unmatched.
There's a reason I refer to it as "Kojima Level trolling" nothing tops the King Troll.
Batzi Jaffe has been trolling us a lot longer than Kojima, Kojima broke through with mobs dick studio while jaffe has been a well known troll And I am a huge Kojima fanboy I haven't worked on a twisted metal game in forever and than walks on E3 stage with a ice cream truck
Nope. Kojima trolling is on another level. The guy led everyone to believe you play as Snake through all of Sons of Liberty until the game actually came out. If you chose "I liked Metal Gear Solid 2!" in Snake Eater, you were left to believe this game was ALSO Raiden-centric. P.T. turned out to be Silent Hills and the demo itself was a huge mind-warp. The "Metal Gear Collection 2014" turned out to be a clothing line. Jaffe gave it away too soon. Kojima will have you walk into his trolling, expectations on fire. Nah, man. Kojima is still on another level. Sakurai holds a better candle to Kojima level trolling than Jaffe.
Kojima trolling has sent men to insane wards.
This is not funny :p I really thought a new GoW game was incoming. Hope it still is.
It probably is, just not from him. Barlog (the guy behind 2) is probably working on it. @elazz They probably won't, maybe a little teaser, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. Barlog said they don't expect to have anything to show for awhile, not even by E3 2015.
Should have been more elaborate. I really hope they would officially announce and showcase the game during the PS Event
Ha. But seriously would love to see what after what happens after the credits.
Please, don't play with my emotions. Announce a God of War today, and I buy a PS4 tomorrow.
Maybe at Playstation Experience. They have a panel about it which seems kinda random with Ascension releasing a year and a half ago so really not much left to talk about. A man hopes it isn't because a Vita game is coming he wants Norse PS4 GoW goodness with a new protagonist being betrayed by Odin
My only problem with that is how similar it sounds in story to Kratos being betrayed by the Gods. Now that I think about it, it's probably not going to go Norse since Too Human has already made its place there, even if the game was pretty awful (in my opinion, at least). But I will say that Norse mythology is something I've been wanting to see from Jaffe for a long time now. If they make another God of War, I NEED it to not be about Kratos. His story is done and Ascension was largely unnecessary. I have 3 simple requests for a new God of War: A) New characters set in a new Mythology. Kratos was cool and all, but I'd rather they develop someone who isn't so predictable and angry all the time. If they came out with a character that contrasts Kratos' undying misery and pissed off antagonistic persona, I'd be more interested. B) Make a semi-spiritual successor that isn't titled God of War; rather than another story about the God of War in whatever mythology, I just feel like they could give it a less predictable direction that isn't about revenge, chaos, and oblivion. C) CHANGE THE COMBAT SYSTEM. I'm very much tired of the Blades of Chaos/Athena's Blades/ Blades of Exile. I'm talking a complete overhaul that isn't so repetitive and hopefully more technical. The combat system worked for the first two games but I got pretty sick of it at the beginning of 3. Chains of Olympus didn't help that at all.
Vita needs a game like GoW. PS4 is already selling like hotcakes.
Now that What I'm talking about.
Awww. I don't care what anyone says, I'd be down for a new GoW.
Ha ha , that was foul. Still one of the only few sony developers that's cool .
Hey, no trolling in an article about trolling.
Other than basically every other one.
Who is Kratos fighting now? The Norse Gods?
All the gods and their prophets.
That's been a man's dream for ages and no better place to reach that scale and badassery than PS4!
But when is GoW releasing?
omg omg omg *fangirl squeal*
If a new GOW were to happen, it may need a new universe and character, as well as setting, Egypt would be interesting, but I don't like the idea of surrendering Kratos for such a move.
I'll probably check out a new GOW game, but it would be my first. Could never get into the older GOW games, seemed a bit bleh. But with the new hardware I'd be curious what they could achieve. Nice trolling, though.
What a joker, my sides are splitting.
I dont find this a bit funny infact im pissed now
I want a God Of War game badly :(
Trolling is about all Jeffe has left and he will never make a better game than GoW.
whoa whoa whoa what about calling all cars and twisted metal on ps3 XD
2015 is packed so 2016 GOW 4???
We want that now....that would be awesome if it makes an appearance at Playstation event.
Unfortunately there are bigger trolls on N4G...
Clearly they have to release the God of War Remixed HD Collection with 1, 2, 3, and Ascension before God of War 4 can even be considered. Also... God of War 4... Dreaming big, 'ey next genners?
*Shakes fist...and crys* A current gen GOW will burn retinas.
Is this new studio belonging to Sony? Or is he independend? I man, if its not a sony first pparty studio then this guy would bring a new IP.
The studio is independent, but I imagine Jaffe and co. are closely affiliated with Sony for progress reports and such. They may even be publishing the game, we'll see next week.
Guess he had to remind everyone that he is in fact a huge douchebag, just when we were starting to forget about him too.
Oh Jaffe, y u do dis? Jaffe pls Man, I can't wait for a new GoW.
If there's third party exclusives like this being announced for PS4, it makes me wonder how many others may be coming from third parties.
So what mythology is gonna get destroyed, Roman?
They should do Hindu. Their gods looks fun to kill.
Wouldn't he be killing many iterations of the same god? That would be so funny. Kratos: "WTF how many times to I have to kill slightly different versions of the same god? When I was I'm Greece after killing Zeus I didn't have any more Zeuses to kill but here I'm killing the same god over and over again except with a different coat of paint"
They could crossover the gods to Roman and Kratos gets to fuck them up
Kojima be like: http://oi46.tinypic.com/21d...
A joke makes todays top news.....hilarious just about sums it up.
And I thought I was finally going to buy a PS4. I'll save my money until this game finally comes out then.
Kratos + PS4= Mind blown
