Legendary game director, David Jaffe, asks the press to be more professional.
Good stuff. As a journo myself, I must admit its tempting to take things out of context for a good story, but anyone worth thier wieght in this field wont deface or defame developers or publishers for hits, that's just wrong.
Exactly, your readers will remember that you fooled them once, and they won't fall for it again. In the process, you're just destroying the integrity of every article you will ever write. You know, the internet is written in INK. Cheers,
Yep and Hiphopgamer is a perfect example of that.
How about David Jaffe just stops talking. he never seems to have anything of importance to say anyways.
Yeah. He's clearly the only one (that you care to mention because you secretly love him). Did you know that Insomniac proved the death of exclusive games? Have you heard that the PS4 is being revealed early next year? Did you know that the iPad is a better gaming system than the PSP AND PSV? I learned all of those untrue things on this very website over the past few days. HipHipGamer didn't write any of those articles.
No but Hiphopgamer will argue to the death that his 480p EDTV displays HD. Or how about his latest about how sales are higher for Battlefield 3 vs MW3. Yes lets go by what HHG says cause he just knows what he knows.
Of course you can't forget that he stated the mods for skyrim "ARE" coming to consoles.
Lol Wenis that made my day.. Teh mans a legend man.. Let him speak.. Atleast I'll be playing his game, hopefully very soon :b
Yup and i'll admit sometimes it is tempting. But lets be real here. It's his twitter account, he can say anything he wants and because he says something that he doesn't have anything connected to (he doesn't state it) doesn't mean everyone should go out of their way and try to connect the dots. Stupid Journal List know they are doing it and they don't care. It's stupid seeing sites miss interpret tweets and quotes. It not only makes them look bad, but it causes developers to go out their way to clear things up.
The gaming industry is particularly bad for this.
ahhh legendary good time good times really its the only horrid game i keep to for my friends to play and live the same experience i did...and white snake just made it ridiculous
Ah, yes. Like the time someone claim how the 360 version of FFXIII will be better than the ps3 version.
from past-gen to current-gen, it would all make sense. But of course, in the real rational gamer world, that is just F'n ridiculous. All the Xbox 360 sycophants better hope, pray, and believe that Microsoft will come along with a more advanced media storage format for their next console. If you don't, then you might as well be confident in nothing else but the Sega Dreamcast!
His problem isn't truly with 'the press' (which implies journalistic training and standards) but with assmunch bloggers running their mouths off with no care for truth reality or standards....anything to get 'hits'.
The "press" has done this too..
Yes, those asshats who run thier own little blogs and do biased and opinionated reviews are usually the ones who take things out of context and try to make some cheap hits, but big press sites also do a lot of damage. Mainly becuase so many smaller independant blog journos take thier info from the larger sites.
Great this guy did the twisted metal game and all of a sudden he is legendary. Yes legendary of running his mouth. Focus on the F'ing game so that we if the game doesn't perform as expected we won't have to here all the excuses how you kept getting distracted outside of development. I am looking forward to playing Twisted Metal but please STFU.
Without Jaffe, there would be no Twisted Metal. Without Jaffe, there would be no God of War. I'd say that's pretty legendary.
He is a great developer, it's a fact, but he is also a big dickhead :) But generally speaking, crazy people are more creative :)
seeks it's hits, that's why I pay these trolls no attention.
WTF is this idiot going on about now, maybe if he would stfu the press wouldnt make sh%t up about the sh^t he's talking.
but jaffe asking people to be more professional? http://stupidevilbastard.co... jaffe needs to take his own advice. seriously though, with some of the dumbarse stuff he's come out with he's in a very poor position to talk.
Sorry but have to disagree. His professionalism is making games and he has a right to defend something he has spent years making and putting blood, sweat and tears into. Your rant on buying / selling used video games is pretty much the same rant we hear from hackers arguing about the removal of other os. we bought it so we can do what we like with it etc etc. By no way am I saying I approve or disapprove of the 2nd hand market, but I agree if I were a developer, I would want a cut from 2nd hand sales. I also agree that publishers will try figure out a way on how to cut into the 2nd hand market and so far the results have been: dlc, online passes and the new save game format crapcom have introduced. The job of a journalist is to write a story given the facts and use the facts to show an accurate representation of an event. Some however lie, manipulate, exagerate and make shit up. The better the journalist is at his game, the less shit he will have to make up to write a good piece. What this journalist did is not defend his work as jaffe was doing on ure twitter convo, he just plain old made a whole bunch of shit up just for hits. Its the equivilant of a crack whore selling herself for 2cents just so she can claim more clients then her competition.
maybe he should get off twitter then. Its that simple. Hes the one giving them material to bullshit.
I question how relevant this guy is any more. He seems to talk a lot of crap, but not really give anything in return. He's like the Peter Molyneux of PlayStation.
