David Jaffe, the director of the original God of War, gives his thoughts on the inclusion of multiplayer in the upcoming Playstation 3 exclusive action-adventure title, God of War: Ascension.
I agree. If the SP is effected, then the uproar will be justified. Since it would look as if the MP took lead. However, no one has seen much of it, and to jump to conclusions that it will follow the lead of many other games, is wrong. Give it a chance, before you throw it out.
and SM said it time and time again that the SP is thier main foucs and the Mp is a bouns nothing more
Dead Space and Assassin's Creed are both examples of games where online was added, players got all up in a tizzy, and the end result didn't effect the single player campaign at all. GoW will succeed at doing the same. Santa Monica is not going to ruin one of Sony's biggest franchises with poor implementation.
People who jumped to conclusions saying that they should focus on SP instead of MP are foolish. They have no evidence that Santa Monica isn't focusing on the SP. GOW has more development time than yearly games. Maybe they're getting the MP announcements out of the way first to save the best for later (E3?), which is the story. Uncharted has done this as well, twice. Besides, the game director has said at least twice that they know the SP is their "bread and butter" and that the combat was being reworked. I agree with Jaffe about the studio deserving the bendfit of the doubt.
Ow, some hectic dyslexic writing there.
@pr0digyZA Sorry but are we all doing a english test GCSE maybe...? Leave it alone fedup some people pickin on others cos they miss spell or dont put in the ....,,,.'''' Leave him alone. By all means PM start on me love to hear from you.
Wow relax man I have dyslexia same as my father, its always cool to see others who have it as no one talks about it. Where did you see me pick on him.
I have dyslexia same as my father So why feel the need to say what you did doesnt make sense. if true you of many should understand anyways its cool obviously miss read you. im always relaxed unless someone wakes me up
David Jaffe speaks truth. Give the developers the benefit of the doubt instead of throwing a tantrum.
I agree with Jaffe. Especially when he talks about the team. This is not some start up, off shoot game development team. This is Sony Santa Monica, one of the most respected dev teams in the world. Not only are they made up of some of the most talented people, they actually make fun, beautiful and memorable games. People are so quick to judge, when they have no idea what they are judging.
I remember playing GOW3 Arena with friends saying how great it would be to play co-op hordes or something. Well, looks like we'll get to try that out soon enough and I think it'll be awesome. "bu-bu-but GOW is a SP game..." and it still will be, the inclusion on MP doesn't have to be a negative for SP. See uncharted 2, and how much bitching was done over them adding MP back then, a lot.
you have soooo many bubbles but you deserve one more +1
Ppl are idiots to even doubt Santa Monica if you think they are going tack on some bs mp your insane.
I think SSM still consults Jaffe from time to time and he knows more about the game than he lets on. To the doubters, have some faith in the devs, they have not let us(me) down yet.
After the mess of a game he made which was Twisted metal, he shouldn't even have the right to comment on it. Doesn't matter if he pro-found God of war, he's not helping building Ascensions and he didn't help build God of war 3. The fact he gives his thoughts about multiplayer is laughable considering how twisted metal online is. Sorry if this is a rant, but personally I'm getting tired of this man commenting on everything NAughty Dog or Santa monica does.
