David Jaffe Initiates God of War III Hype, Curses

He might not be working on God of War III, but that won't stop David Jaffe from getting all frothy about it.

This is apropos of nothing, but I wish someone would commission Al Jaffee to draw Kratos.
No high-profile game designer has fully embraced this whole blogging thing with as deep a commitment as David Jaffe. Rather than just use it as a marketing platform (though he does that pretty cleverly as well,) Jaffe will just ramble on about the relative merits of the games he's playing, the music he's listening to, the movies he's looking forward to--you know whatevs--usually while employing the interpretive art of cursing with a teenaged zeal. Yesterday was no exception, though after sharing his thoughts on Metal Gear Solid 4 and Gears of War 2, and lamenting the organizational deficiencies of VGXPO, Jaffe casually mentioned that he stopped by Sony's Studio Santa Monica to see how God of War III was coming along. While he revealed no new details about the game itself, he did betray a certain dignified, restrained enthusiasm for what he saw. And I quote:
a- HOLY HOLY HOLY FUCKING HELL!!!!

b- I thought GEARS OF WARS 2 looked about as good as a next-gen game could look....and that game is currently- and will probably remain- my game of the year. And hell, I think I actually get to vote on that kind of stuff in some circles :) And unless I get blown away by POP or something else I missed, GEARS 2 is the SHIT....this year. Dudes and dudettes, fucking WAIT till you see the amazing graphics...just fucking wait.
Jaffe's perspective on the whole God of War franchise is indelibly colored by his involvement in its creation, and his all-enthusiasm/no-substance extolment is the dictionary definition of hype, but he'll have none of the fanboy finger-pointing/name-calling!
#1- I just said GEARS 2 is the BEST fucking playing and looking game of the year....better than any PS3 game. And there are some damn good PS3 games, I feel.

#2- FUCK YOU! I ain't no fan boy but this mother fucking game looks like nothing you've ever played...and you can hold me to that when this thing hits and when they start showing gameplay footage. It looks like a painting come to life- it's THAT good looking.
You'll get banned from the forums with language like that, Mister Jaffe! It's hard for me not to be a Doubting Thomas about this superlative-filled account of God of War III, though there's a guilelessness here that makes me think he's being completely sincere. Either way, I think you can safely translate Jaffe's statements to mean "God of War III seems to be coming along nicely."

I want to see.

Posted by OmegaPirate

Wow -thats pretty intense opinions from the man- hope hes right

Posted by Bass

interesting

Posted by RHCPfan24

Haha. Wow. 

Well, I am glad the GOD OF WAR creator loves Gears of War 2.  Shows the resonating power Xbox 360 has.  But David Jaffe seems like a very reasonable guy, so this is probably no surprise. 

As for God of War III, that should be good but obviously no one knows anything about it now.

I believe Jaffe when he says HOLY HOLY HOLY FUCKING HELL. Btw, Ryan what's with all the "big words" in the article? (man, i sound like a hick). I'm not complaining, it's just that i don't think i've seen this many in one of your articles before....you usually do have more than Jeff and Brad do though :P. I'm guessing you want to create an obvious contrast between yourself and Jaffe?

I agree

looks like a bad mouth 

Posted by jakob187

Well, given that GoW has failed to disappoint on console or handheld, I don't see why this game wouldn't end up being, as Jaffe might put it, in-fucking-credible!

Posted by TheGreatGuero

He's pretty nuts. I'm glad to see he's back on board with God of War III.

Posted by BiggerBomb

Why isn't he working on God of War III?

Edited by Death_Burnout

Ahhh good old Jaffe...dude knows how to say Fuck, and say it well. Dude knows how to hype up God Of War III too, im excited now.

Edited by artofwar420

He's working on other projects. He now has his own studio Eat Sleep Play (I think that's the name?) But I'm sure he is overseeing the GOW III.

Posted by AaronBelfast

Wise words from Jaffe!

Posted by VegaDemonLord

No matter how good it looks, it will still be very, very overrated. 

Posted by chililili

God of war set the bar for best looking games on the ps2, which was the weakest graphically system of last gen, this gen the ps3 is the strongest graphically so it makes sense that God of war III is the best looking game this generation, and god of war IV or whatever ends up being the only one surpassing God of War III.

Posted by LiquidPrince

Damn, now I'm excited.

Posted by PLWolf

Well, the previous ones were the best damn visuals created on the PS2. I'm expecting something similar with GoW3 and the PS3. So excited!!

OH THAT DAVID JAFFE!!

The 360 is stronger graphically where it's easier to code so you can get more out of the console and if you'd want to do so on the PS£ it would take an extra year that developers don't ahve and thts why we see bad ports to the PS3 all the time. Also the GPU inside the 360 is more powerful than whats in the PS3 and we're seeing things like better AA on the 360 because of this. The ram also the 360 has the advantage because the GPU can in theory have access to all 512mb ram and the OS uses less ram leaving more than just the 256mb ram that the PS3 GPU has access to and the OS uses up more ram too. The only advantage the PS3 has is disc space where theyc an fit uncompressed textures to the PS3. What I'm wondering is if now you can instlal games to your 360... will they uncompress to your harddrive to take away the PS3's edge.

Sony lied about the power of their console to developers again and they made just such a big mistake launching 1 year later with effectively less ram.

"HEY LOOK, GUYS. I CAN TYPE IN ALL CAPS AND WRITE CURSE WORDS. I'M SOOOO EDGY!"

David Jaffe is such a fucking tool.

Posted by BawlZINmotion

Considering the God of War series has always been a graphical watermark for whatever platform it releases on, I have no doubt the PS3 version could potentially be mindblowing.

You need to do more research on the Cell Processor and what is truly in the PS3 to understand it's power and capabilities.
What you just typed does nothing but scream Sony Hater.
Edited by dtran1212

i expect nothing short from  FUCKIN AMAZIN!!!! from this game

Posted by TheGTAvaccine

It's not surprising that it looks great. God of War 2 is easily the best looking PS2 game.

Posted by addictedtopinescent

YESSSSSSSSSSSS, CAN'T FUCKING WAIT.

Posted by John1912

Lol, maybe there will actually be another PS3 game for me to buy >.>  Either way, hope its better then the last one.  Didnt care for the boss fights, and it feels too much like a button masher.  If they changed that it could be pretty fucking epic.  This guy needs to shut his fucking mouth thou.  Nothing kills the impression of a game more then running your mouth.  Peter im looking at YOU!

Posted by Milkman

I have a hunch that this guy is excited about God of War III. But, hey, that's just me...

Posted by IncredibleBulk92

I wish I was as cool as David Jaffe so I could use the caps lock on my swear words.  I unsubscribed from his blog a long time ago, I find him insufferable.  God of War is pretty good tho to be fair

Posted by keyhunter

What the holy fucking hell does Gears of War have to do with God of War?

Posted by asian_pride

Hahaha thats Jaffe for ya.

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Like a painting come to life? Oh god, please tell me they aren't going to pull a PoP style v.v There is no need to change the style, just keep it! Plus all te fanboys will say that their just stealing from PoP. But I'm pretty psyched, does this mean we get to see something soon????? Yum, I hope so =)

Posted by ezdude

wow, I never thought somebody could so hyped from a game, he must have played it on a damned good projector, screen, tv, or something.

Posted by Bulldog19892

Wait, is he yelling about Gears of War or is supposed to be hyping God of War?

Posted by bulletclip6

david jaffe never let me down before. this game is destined to be great.

Posted by MagusMaleficus

Every time you use words like "apropos" in a news update on a website, your penis shrinks. Yep, totally true.

Posted by Brackynews

Fan boy + street creed + spin = $!^%&@ good marketing

@BiggerBomb: Jaffe no longer works for SCEA, he's just another developer for the Playstation platform.

Posted by Media_Master

That was exhausting...

Posted by TwoOneFive

boy am i glad to be a ps3 owner. 

Posted by PureRok

The guy sounds like an idiot.

Posted by bartholomew999

God of War 2 still stands up as a gorgeous title, 3 will likely be the shit as well.

Posted by Standing_Gopher

Jaffe is my hero.

Posted by TaintedSun

I like professionalism.

Posted by daniel_beck_90

the guy got some minor issue

Posted by ferrarimanf355

Even Michael Bay thinks that he blew up too many grills and pools...

Posted by AspiringAndy

What the hell happened to Jaffe.
I remember his blog was a bit more... sophisticated?
Sounds like a fanboy on Gamespot.
That's my opinion anyway.
