David Jaffe & HipHopGamer Discuss God Of War, Multi-Platform Development, Gamestop and more. Eat Sleep Play Is Going To The Top
I Dare you guys to say hiphopgamer isnt credible now!!!! Hiphopgamershow and the bitbag for life!!! Big Tor i see ya we comin up!!!
http://criminalcrackdown.bl... In the comments of the motherf*** post (can't post the link because of N4G censor) HHG was basically begging for a interview, in the dudes comments section to boot... I respect Tor, hes a cool guy who keeps it real, I like HHG's new angle but not his flamebait tactics.
That's hot. Now thats what I call an interview - REAL STUFF FOR REAL GAMERS, not all this high end top gaming media bs.
Wait so George u believe other journalists do not ask repeatedly for interviews cause if so you couldn't be farthest from the truth.
I never said they didn't, but in the comments section of his blog post?
hey man anything you need to do you do it but love you pic G.
I think you mean "don't want to miss". Welcome to the english language.
That Jaffe has anything to do with Hiphopgamer.
HipHopGamer isn't credible. I'm about 47 minutes into the vid, good interview, but HHG's obnoxious attitude does get on my nerves ('THIS IS CRAZY MAN KEKEKEKE SO CRAZY RIGHT NAO'). Nothing against the guy personally, cause you can tell he does have a legit passion for gaming, which is great. However, he needs to clean house on his site if he plans on gaining any credibility as a journalistic source. Tards like MattG and Agent-X are the biggest perpetrators of idiocy over there, and a big part of the reason why they're so hated here.
I never even thought of a twisted metal where you get out of the car..That is something to think about how this could be possible and still have that core Twisted gameplay. I think you just would not want that option in Twisted metal though because if you get out of your car your body just can't mitigate the amount of damage say ...warthog is going to dish out. Then again axel was pretty wide open between those 2 big wheels. If anyone can make it work though I'm sure its Jaffe and Eat Sleep Play. Just keep it twisted huh.
How should he have asked for an interview? Show up at his house and knock on the door? Perhaps telepathy would have been the better route?
Jerry, they have something called e-mail now! Remember that time you emailed Fox your idea about a cartoon about nothing and then they made Family Guy?
People have to arrange interviews in private or they get ridiculed by a man who lives with his parents? I'm surprised you even know what e-mail is. You'da probably sent him a letter in a poisoned envelope.
Well for someone who runs around telling people how professional he is and how he is a journalist almost every hour yes he should be doing better then begging in the comments section of a guys blog. Wel oh yea,...I had sex with your wife!
seriously even if you dislike HHG, you have to give him credit for doing his thing. i mean for once, theres actually a face we can put into videogame journalists and puts himself and his cred on the line when he posts his shows every sunday. he likes what he likes and he says it like it is. no fanboy BS.
Blu-ray. It's obvious it does help the system from a game perspective, (Think of Mgs4 and Killzone 2) and besides that one of the main reasons i bought the ps3 was for the hi definition movies. Sure downloaded hd content is alright but it doesn't hold a candle to blu-rays sound and picture quality. i don't regret for a second that the ps3 cost me more becasue of the blu-ray it was well worth the price. Dvd-9 is last generation technology and as games get bigger It's going to suffer, i don't wan't the ps3 to be limited by it and blu-ray really shows off my hdtv and is second only to a movie theater.
To have more than 50 mins of interview with some 1 like David Jaffe is impressive i have 2 say.
To score an interview like this with God of War creator David Jaffe is pretty cool. I don't hate Hip Hop Gamer, I just hate when he thinks that it's okay for his writers to create BS stories like these... http://www.n4g.com/News-317... http://www.n4g.com/gaming/N... http://www.n4g.com/industry... N4G wasn't made for that. Why not stick to previews, reviews, etc? Nevertheless, good interview.
sure he gets famous game developers as guests, but that doesn't change the fact that all his shows are based on SPECULATION/RUMORS and NOT FACTS. THEREFOR, HE IS STILL NOT CREDIBLE. he is just full of shyt, aswell as his fanboy staff.
Hey Tor he didnt lie on the warzone when he said this was big. Good job HIPHOP!!!!
wtf are you talking about im talkin about hiphop's announcement on the warzone that today would be big for him a-hole.
Look. I understand that not everyone is a fan of the HipHopGamer, that not everyone likes his blend of videogame news, but then we live in free countries (probably) nobody is forcing us to watch his show. Sure you can be petty and criticise the man for not always using a spell checker but that is not seeing the big picture. For me, I've got to be honest, I love what he is doing. He has a genuine passion for videogames. He wears his heart on his sleeve. Every week he comes, he talks and he shares his opinions. You don't have to agree with everything he says, I often don't. But I have nothing for RESPECT for the HHG for breaking down barriers, coming out each week to talk to us about something we all love -games.
I couldn't agree more. You sound like someone from my country.
I agree, HHG definitely is a gamers gamer, however he is insanely stupid at times, and to a very high degree too. I don't mind someone who has a passion for gaming, somebody who loves every game who comes out and someone who plays games just because they are damn fun, but I don't appreciate when he comes out and says all the purely inflammatory stuff that he does post JUST FOR HITS, it is just wrong, too many times the stuff he writes and videos are purely for the sake of internet ratings, not to mention the insane amount of junk that is paraded as fact. I don't mind HHG giving his opinion on many things(Whether or not they are right or very wrong is besides the point), just that the news aimed purely to get the hits and start all these flame wars, it's just not on, we need more of this sort of stuff, interviews, ACTUAL FACTUAL news, that is what HHG can do well, that is what HHG could make a reputation on, there is no need for all the 'most hits' flamebait to be put up here 90% of the time.
I mean, I get your point. He's a video game lover, he does what he wants to show his love for video games. But, honestly, I don't care about his passion, I care about whether or not he A) is Entertaining B) brings me credible news C) provides constructive debates on games To all of those, I can say he doesn't bring what I'm looking for. So, great, he's got passion. Doesn't change how much I hate his site/show nor does it garner any respect from me for what he brings to the gaming community.
I couldn't care less about his passion. That was never up for debate. Dude is just annoying and unprofessional as hell. He embarrasses me. I can only imagine what goes through some of the people's heads when he is in their face, interviewing them.
I sure love your avatar!! Monkey Island is the best videogame franchise probably. As for hiphopgamer... I just can´t bare the picture in his homepage... He hanging out against that wall with his Bro´ attitude... is there a need for that pic?... why not something videogame related?... That alone keeps me out of the site... not to mention the unprofessional way he carries it along...
Bro' attitude? Are you serious?
yeah, he looks like a stereotype. Mind, I live outsiede the USA, that might help make it feel more obvious to me :P and anyway... I sure got it wrong with the "bro" thing... I was just trying to say he looks too much like a fake character.
not being american I am sure I missused the expression or used one left behind in the mid 80s... go figure :P
HHG - "Say, "It's Gangsta." Jaffe - "No" That^ was great. LOL! xD I wouldn't have said it ether. Not a fan of HHG's style(the hip hop side at least), but I like his shows. Keep it up HHG! Can't wait for that E3 coverage!
David Jaffe is the man! we need another Twisted Metal, Black was the sheet!
Well I'll be damned! HHG did a non-flamebait article! But still I'm not going to sit through this half-hour (or more?) interview. I know HHG is the gangstaest gangsta but he's too much gangsta for me. And damnit what the hell are those shoe ads?
HHG is the man now let the haters come here to give disagree's take away bubbles, report the articles and give the site hits like every sunday.
It's not like the Haters are out there getting us coverage of GDC and E3, or interviews with Sir. David for all of us to enjoy.
Now HHG just needs to fire those nonsense writers of him like MattG, Hydro and AgentX and he will be fine.
Send me one article that is completely awful that I wrote?
How about all.
Instead of saying all of them.
Now I don't really want to get into a fight here, but how about this one Matt? http://www.hiphopgamershow.... "Xbox360: The Power Is Now Proven" So the power of the 360 was proven from a PS3 demo of a game? The key is, WAIT until the actual game/demo comes out ON THE 360 to spout something like that. ;)
See I find it funny that people say HHG should get rid of me because of my nonsense. While the Final Fantasy article was his idea and he asked me to write it for him. So ccording to some of you guys I should get kicked off the site for articles he told me to do for him. Go figure... :-/
If you were a self-respecting journalist, you'd tell him to take articles like that and shove it. But you're not a self-respecting journalist, so you did it anyway.
from what i can tell all your submissions are fair. But you gotta admit that alot of what is written from HHGS is just flaimbait that is used to produce hits on the website
Yea dude, all your articles are terrible. Same with all the other flame bait, bad grammar, and blog material articles that get posted here.
But who wrote it Matt? Are you so incapable of free will you couldn't have said 'no'? And are they not still all your words(More or less)? I will pull up one more article/submission though: http://www.hiphopgamershow.... "Gran Turismo has some competition. It’s called Need for Speed: Shift" Now granted you might be talking more about GT5:P in the article, but you do mention GT5 and that NFS:S will "easily challenge Gran Turismo 5 as the most beautiful racing game when they both come out" Now once again, a matter of wait and see(I do realise you basically say this, still it isn't a preface to say that this is personal opinion and may not come true, it is more something right at the end to say that maybe everything I wrote won't happen), but if Killzone 2 is anything to go by, we know that PS3 exclusives certainly outweigh(Graphically at least) almost anything that multiplat games have to offer. I'm not saying that you and your posse should be gone(The other guy was :p), but just write stuff that isn't so unfounded, and don't give us stuff that is only for the hits/ratings. I will also just mention too, that many do see grammar issues to as poor articles, make sure that they are always checked out for proper grammar and punctuation, especially if your trying to be a legit news site, just makes the whole thing far more professional. PS: If you want to respond to me but have run out of bubbles, a PM is always welcome. :)
Thanks for the lesson on ethics. Where did you get your degree in journalism? Yeah I'm gonna tell the dude I work for to shove it :-/ Why not write it? It's games journalism, not f**king war journalisim. He had his opinion, but he wanted to use me as an outlet to share it. Some people have ideas but can't express it. I helped him express it Also if you really think about it, you know that the games will most likely look the same. The only major problem was the definitive title. If the title was, "Could Final Fantasy XIII prove the 360's power?" there would be no issue
I still stand behind that Need for Speed article. I saw screens on the game, looked at what the team worked on in the past, and the time they put into this game. I didn't bash Gt5 in the article, but rather praised the possibilities in Need for Speed. I thought this game would be good becuase it would allow 360 owners to play a high quality sim racer. I also liked the amount of detail they put into car damage, reflections, and the use of very good mirrors. If you read it you'll see that its more like a preview than a comparison. The game will be competition because the game looks great, is multi-plat, does some good things that GT5 doesnt do, and has the need for speed name. I think GT5 will be better, but I think NFS:S will also be a very good mainstream sim racer
Just finished my minor in Journalism. Granted, that's not a Bachelor's, but it's more than you have room to scoff at. And yes, you should have told the guy you work for to shove it if that's how he wants to run his publication. If you have any skills whatsoever, you can find another place to write, one that might actually do something for your career instead of putting the brakes on it. It doesn't matter if you're writing about war, politics, or video games. If you're pushing opinion, it's not journalism. Period. There's nothing wrong with putting your thoughts out there, but mislabeling it as journalism is dishonest and misleading. Take some pride in your work. And please, don't ignore the power of a title. An honest title would have told potential readers exactly what you were gonna talk about, but instead, you chose one that would simply ignite whatever fanboy rage is out there. It's lame and unprofessional.
I appreciate your answer and do agree with your thoughts, but you can basically see where the issues lie, can't you? It is more the instant thing that you will read, so many will browse an article rather than really read the whole thing. Also just some better wording at times can make a huge difference, not to mention stating at first that your views are only from some very early/early/mid development/late development/etc. screenshots(Which is not once mentioned), just some better wording and making sure you cover your ends can go a long way(For example, "From the early footage/screenshots that I have seen of this game, it looks like it could be a challenger to the behemoth that GT5 will no doubt be" ?). ;) Also just on your previous comment "The only major problem was the definitive title. If the title was, "Could Final Fantasy XIII prove the 360's power?" there would be no issue" This is basically the biggest issue and downfall of HHG, just thinking "Hmm, maybe this title could be wrong or could be seen as pure flamebait" could easily stop so many of the negatives propelled at the site, surely it would've only taken a few seconds to realise that a)The comment is 100% false and b)It will only attract the one type of reader, fanboys. Too many times HHG articles are coming out with titles that are aimed at the wrong audience(That being fanboys), not to mention aiming the titles at getting the most hits/ratings, now no doubt as one of the millions upon millions of sites out there you want hits/ratings, but do you want them at the expence of credibility? I hope yours and everyone at HHG's answer is no, otherwise your site is heading in the worst direction. PS: Once again, if you want to reply(Now that you have no more free bubbles left), I always have time to read and reply to a PM. :)
@MattG He wanted to use you to express it? That's your excuse? That is precisely why people who have no education in journalism are telling you that you are a sad "journalist." It only takes simple logic to tell you that you're a slave. You basically said that you will do whatever your boss tells you to do, regardless of how you feel about it. I don't want to hear anything about this is how the world works, or it happens in the industry all the time. You still look like a puppet, and your justification(s) only throw more dirt on your name.
[email protected] mentioning JetMoto! That game was ultra comedy. The physics were over the top hilarious, especially after a few shots of bourbon. Ah... HIGHschool.
Hell, the commercials for it were pretty funny too.
'to' not 'too' :/ I mean even if ppl like his articles, surely the guys approving should pick up on stuff like this?
This might be the one Jaffe interview I don't want to watch. Sorry HHG you still suck in my book.
You're biased no different than a fanboy.
its actually pretty good
I think you meant the parts where David is speaking are pretty good. Listening to David is pretty fun. He is entertining and informative. The rest is garbage though.
Seriously he has annoyed me the last few weeks and sometimes in this interview with "this is crazy right now" on replay. However the interview was pretty good. Give credit where its due.
... is this: if the majority of the content on your site is crap, good content will be stained similarly. I frankly don't care if this is the greatest interview ever conducted between a gamer and a developer, this site won't be getting my clicks until it cleans up its act. Sorry, HHG.
jaffe is the man...
Now, if you did stuff like this all the time I'd bookmark your site. Seriously if you stopped the over the top flamebait I'd actually like your site. Especially considering how much I love hip hop.
i agree actually. i'm still not a fan cus of all the rubbish, flamebait articles, bad grammer everywhere etc. but this interview was pretty good.
I do want to miss it. There is no point in watching this cause I already know ahead of time that it will suck like every blog post he makes. You retards can approve this garbage all you want but the site still won't get any hits. lol
wow the two biggest FONY fangirls
Good job HHG. Great show.
is definately on the rise hhg keep it man you are climbing so fast.peace
"say it's gangsta" "wait wait...you want me to say it's gangster??" "yeah but only say it's gangSTA" "hell no i'm not doin that and let me tell you why..you know those videos where they have game developers in bed with playboy models? like...don't f*ckin ask me to do that" LMAO, good interview...the only part that was confusing was when you were explaining why God of War 3 was great and you said it was because they can hold Kratos? Or you were talking about hit collsion? It was kinda confusing on that part but fun interview overall.
