He has some issues with how their making one of their games, and he has some ideas for how he can help them out.
At least he makes good games. If your going to be vocal and arrogant you need to be able to back it.
Jaffe owns. He probably wants to laugh about Fracture too. TGSI
Its like a child star still being famous at 40 years old. Its time to show people whats what imo.
He's yet to show what he's got without Sony cuddling him. Now he's on his own it's time to see if he's the real deal.
Just a few minutes ago an Epic writer makes a comment that he thinks the Lancer will be the new Lightsaber, which seems to me to be a positive aspiration and definitely a sign of respect to all affiliated with Star Wars but many sony loyalist bash his comments on that thread; some outright accuse Epic of being arrogant. Then Jaffe's basicly calling out another studio, telling them to call him for advice, and the first comment from sony fan is: "At least he makes good games"...blah, blah, blah... So let me understand sony loyalist rule # 238697: Once the sdf has determined they "make good games" with the ps logo it, THEN they are allowed to say whatever they like.= lmfao the hypocrisy of n4g is astounding. JOY
Have you ever, in your sad little existence, made a positive contribution to the community at N4G? Or is it your aspiration to see if you can use "Sony fanboys", "Sony loyalists", "SDF" etc. in every single one of your posts? I seriously have no idea how you legitimately moved up to six bubbles. *EDIT* Sorry to disappoint you, but I have no feelings about him one way or the other. In fact, I think he is a little arrogant at times. I see you avoided my question and the theme of your reply is pretty much the same as your usual verbal diarrhea. You should pay more attention.
you're a Jaffe loyalist, huh?...... oh well sorry to offend you I'm just speaking the truth, hey at least I didn't mention the bad, bad, 4 letter word that starts with an "S"....ooops, there goes my bubbles= JOY @ rhood022, noted he said "WAS" but I don't see how that changes the basic idea of what I alluded to in my first comments, which is that the majority of "sony loyalists"(my description of the extreme pro sony membership on n4g) seem to have very selective criteria for judging whether or not statements made by devs/writers/PR heads is acceptable or creditable....and its no coincidence that if it anything pro 360 is bashed while the same type or even more questionable statements are praised....so NO, I do not see the difference between the two scenarios, other than that I think if this had been CliffyB making such statements, the comment thread would sound much different...and YES it DOES make sense to me; only because I know exactly WHY. @RememberThe357, I did read the entire article before I commented, also I don't know where you're from but I do think its somewhat arrogant to first assume that an outside studio wants your advice/ideas, furthermore even if you did think you have some great ideas to share why not CALL THEM an make a offer man to man instead putting the "word out" in an unoffiliated source that "its even more arrogant to tell another source: "THEY SHOULD give us a call at Eat Sleep Play." if thats not thinkly a bit highly of yourself or at least assuming a bit much then I don't know what is.
@JOY If you don't understand the difference between the two scenarios, then I don't know what to say that would make sense to you. But a point of clarification. The Epic writer wasn't saying they were "aspiring" to be the new lightsaber, he said the Lancer WAS the new lightsaber. Meaning he believes that Gears has achieved the same iconic status what took Star Wars decades to achieve. Their goal, according to the article, is to continue to build that image over the next ten-years.
Dude you obviously didn't read that interview. All he said was that he wanted to make an Indiana Jones game. From the interview: "1UP: I was replaying God of War 1 last weekend, and one thing I had forgotten was how many Indiana Jones similarities there were. So I'm curious, how much of this was you wanting to make an Indiana Jones game -- but obviously in a different setting -- and how much of it was just you wanted to pull in a few inspirations here and there? "Coming off of God of War, and being able to sort of make my adventure game, which is what I always wanted to do, I always look back know and think, 'What are the things I [would have done differently]?'" DJ: Well, there was, and will always remain until I get to do it, a desire to work with Indiana Jones in the interactive medium. I would still to this day love to do that. But really, I can't express, to the point that it borders on the absurd and potentially disturbing, the importance of Indiana Jones -- and specifically Raiders of the Lost Ark -- to my sort of creative development. So certainly, those movies, and specifically Raiders, are really important to me. And I think there was certainly intentional homage paid -- we knew we were making our own game, our own character, our own setting -- but there was definitely a sort of tip of the hat to Indy and sort of that great movie that Raiders was, absolutely. 1UP: Do you think realistically you'll ever make an Indiana Jones game, or is that just kind of a dream? DJ: Well, I mean there's nothing planned right now. A lot of it has to do with, you know, what happens in the future. Do I think I will ever? I don't know. I have a great idea for how LucasArts could really take that property and do cool things with it, and if they're reading this, they should give us a call at Eat Sleep Play. We'd love to talk to them" http://www.1up.com/do/featu... Tell me where you see him "basicly calling out another studio, telling them to call him for advice". It's not there, so shut up. Your trying to make it sound like hes being arrogant and your doing a horrible job.
the hypocrisy is crazy on here.. besides gow, what has this guy really done lately? sonyfanboys like to swing on his sack, i bet u he makes a game multi or for the 360 then he is a piece of shiat.
his a good guy too i watch all his blogs on his website :)
I want him to call me and we can discuss providing me with some Kratos-y goodness.
I can't believe they released that POS movie
I still love the first 3... The fourth was too much like the Star Wars Prequels...
I still remember playing God of War the first time. Great experience.
That it was.
Makes me look at God of War differently.
would make me have to change my pants. :) i can wish
dude get a hair cut and you better not make gow3 crappy as prince of persia
whats next you gonna tell those punk kids to stay off your lawn. i thought he wasnt working on this one. :)
agree he do need a hair cut he look like one them hobbits from lord of the ring.
you do know that jaffe has nothing to do with god of war 3 right?
I was thinking the same thing. I know that he was asked for input, but I think that s as far is it went.
I don't care what anybody says, Jaffe is the man. He's one of the great game designers of our time.
please. And yes, I know there have been a lot since 2, but 989 killed 3 and 4, and Black, while the 3rd best, doesn't have the same feel 2 did. I think an actual Twisted Metal 3 for the PS3 would be the best thing to happen to the PS3.
Jaffe is the sh1t.He's down to earth and not up tight and doesn't care what people think of him.BUUUT he listens to rap and that's NOT cool.Lol.No offense rappers.
his idea: kratos with a whip and oddly enough that would be better than current indiana jones games
I dont get how he's the man ... Besides his "barking" he isnt backing up much lately so far ... Ok he did God of war ... great , awesome even , but thing is the following ones , even if copying the established formula (wich is basically anyway every 3d action game since devil may cry anyway) , didnt need his help , and didnt suffer from his absence . Meanwhile in the past i've been hearing for months about the marvel that was "Calling all cars" only to have everyone forget about it . And i've been hearing at least a year about some hypothetical twisted metal ps3 .. with nothing to show yet . I mean we dont usually accept that crap from itagaki , and he's got a bigger amount of popular games under his belt , so why now ? Let's cut the crap please , Lucas arts isnt in a good shape , but they got a far more respectable track record than jaffe and ... god of war and ...twisted metal . If anyone needs counseling , it might be him , and his coach would most likely tell him to stop blogging all day about everygames , and to worry more about his games than other people's business . PS : i still love GoW and twisted and got hopes for his future games , but sometimes he should just SFTU and it's one of those times .
i agree, this guy gets a lil more credit than he deserves by the kids online, they act like hes god or something in my opinion hes just a smug jerk off shmuck
Is Eat, Sleep, Play still under contract with Sony because it sounds like Jaffe is looking for a new sugar daddy?
They may have contracts with Sony on certain IPs but they're under no obligation to only develop for Sony's PS3. They can do multiplat games all day long. Let's not ride that non-sensical "Sony has first 'dibs'.." crap on this one too.
