Don't Expect David Jaffe's Next Game Next Week

You'll have to wait till the next-next E3 for that one.

David Jaffe really wants you to know that he does not use words like "peeps" in his everyday speech. I can't say I blame him; I wouldn't want people thinking I talk that way, either.

He also wants you to know he will not be showing his new game--the one he's making with his newish company Eat Sleep Play--at E3 next week, per his latest video update below. I love that the first thing you see when you click through to a David Jaffe video update is a warning for explicit language. The man is nothing if not consistent.

  

Saw this one on 1UP. What do you all think Mr. Jaffe is up to?

I do not like David Jaffe. Watching him on Bonus round is horrible.

I can't wait for the release of this game, AAA title.

WOW!  I'll never understand the hatred for Jaffe.  Dood may be opinionated, but that doesn't make him a dick persay.  It just means he's willing to speak with no bullshit.

Without the knowledge that E3 is next week, that statement would be perfectly reasonable. With it, I'm hoping that his next game is God of War, Jr :P. Ecco did it, Street Fighter did it (sorta), so why not God of War?

Posted by Stephen_Von_Cloud

Too bad.  I really hope it's Twisted Metal and it's a great evolution of the series.

Posted by giyanks22

He's a little coo coo in the head...

Posted by Moridin

Can't knock a guy for having opinions and voicing them.

Posted by natetodamax

I love God Of War, but David Jaffe needs to lay off the cocaine so he doesn't act like he's high off his ass whenever he is interviewed or even talks

Posted by lemon360

david jaffe is awesome. i watch his blog and not everything he says is swears and he does have meaningful comments . . . sometimes

Posted by Delta_Ass

David Jaffe is an entertaining dude who likes to curse.

I approve.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

As usual, Jaffe cursing his head off and generally being an elitist dick. What a surprise.

Posted by EpicSteve

Well, it's obviously a larger project that Calling all Cars. I can pray that it's Twisted Metal...or a new IP. But, let's see some Sweettooth!

I could see people describing Jaffe as a lot of things, but elitist is not one of them.  How exactly is Jaffe "elitist"?

I am so tired of David Jaffe.

Posted by Wright

david jaffe has great vlogs.

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Twisted Metal AMIRITE?!

Posted by FrEeZe

Jaffe has been talking up his new game forever on his video blog, and now I have to wait another year just to find out what it is?!

Well at least he does give a bit of insight into gamedesign

Posted by Nick

David Jaffe is a super-douche.

Posted by Diamond

I would have loved to see a new Twisted Metal at E3 :(

Posted by GamerGeek360

How can you guys hate him? I think he's a great guy! He hates on all you douchebags on forums that talk shit about him all the time. To me he's just another game developer trying hard to not get shitted on by all the Nintendo and MS fanboys out there. Sure, I'll probably never play his new game because I don't own a PS3 but I still think it's cool he talks to the community and doesn't just ignore us completely.

Posted by LiquidPrince

Aw boo =(

Posted by Steve_C

I quite like Jaffe, though i've only actually seen him since being on the Bonus Round.
He can have different opinions, but he means what he says. It's awesome to see such honest, unfiltered passion.

Posted by End_Boss

I've never heard of this guy. Never seen any of his interviews, read any of his articles and I've never seen him hype a game. But I know he's good at what he does, if only because of the variance in replies to this thread. A few people seem to really like the guy, and more than a few people seem to hate him. Either way, it sparks conversation, and conversation makes buzz. You can see where I'm going with this.

@Stephen_Von_Cloud:
I agree, he's really just a rough around the edges personality, and I find his input really raw and true to himself, rather than trying to tone himself down for others.  He creates variety in every video he's in.

instead expect it next year with itagaki's next game

Edited by MrKlorox

Jaffe, Moleneux, Itagaki... I cannot stand any of them. They're all full of shit pricks.

It takes one to know... three.

Posted by mrhankey

I actually really enjoyed his rant about E3, i mean seriously....who wouldn't enjoy E3....i know i would love to go and hope to next year.

Posted by AK69

i can't believe how some of you idiots think jaffe is an asshole. jaffe has opinions. everyone does and he likes to voice them on his blog. He is actually a really good guy if you visit his blog often and read what he has to say. He really appreciates his fans and always answers to the comments that people make about his vids on his site.

Posted by Cube

The people who talk shit about Jaffe are fucking idiots. Go stick your empty heads in sand.

Posted by JackiJinx

Like every other developer prolonging his games release, he's playing WoW.

Edited by TwoOneFive

whatever it may be, expect it to be totally fucking awesome man, like jaffe himself would probably say. 



ps.


@arbitrarywater
your name is green, is that the only reason you hate against jaffe? what reason would you have to dislike the guy? he has only brought us awesome games his entire career!! what do people have against this guy!?
Posted by John1912

Oh the God of war guy, well he doesnt seem too bad.  i was thinking this was the guy who made that horrible tempest remake, then cried when ppl didnt like it or care about it. 

Posted by Cday

I really couldn't care less. Dude's full of himself.

Posted by NathHaw

I'm not normally a fan of Jaffe, but I like him in this vid...kinda.

Posted by bshirk
@MrKlorox:

I concur.
Posted by Death_Unicorn

Man, I am PUMPED about E3!!

Posted by Jayzilla

i like how you can't use the word "peeps" but things like "motherfucking cocksucker" are probably hourly vernacular for this man. i'm sorry, but when did video game makers start getting the rockstar treatment from fans? we are gamers. and we are all douche bags, and it would be wise for everyone to remember the old adage about pride coming before the fall.

Posted by Ossi

Wow so much Jaffe hate. He may come out and say things a bit wildly but his opinions and experiences are meaningful. He's just like anyone else in the industry and to me he's a guy that does not sugar coat crap. He goes, he sees, he speaks. That's how it should be.

And it's funny because some of it is crazy left field stuff.  I check out the guys blog every now and then so I'm very familiar with him.  People in this thread have used words like "elitist", "pride", "full of himself" and I just gotta scratch my head.  Fine if you think he's a loudmouth but those other ones just don't make sense.  How is he prideful or an elitist?  At least make sense if you're going to criticize someone.

David Jaffe needs to be on the Bombcast. Enough said.

Posted by theMcNasty

David Jaffe is a cool dude.

Edited by Linkyshinks

I love the Jaffe, his exuberance and lust for gaming is akin to mine. I would like to see more developers like him.


I agree with him also, this guy he talks about on Neo Gaf, sounds like a numb floppy prick, but then there are many pricks on Neo Gaf on the evidence of the Dyack-gate.


I do the same with "peeps", I type it but never speak it.

Posted by Lemmingzx

How can you not like David Jaffe :/

Posted by Undeadpool

Might be a douchebag, might be a dick, also behind God of War AND Twisted Metal...as far as I'm concerned...he can be a dickbag. Dickbag. Your new favorite adjective.

Edited by BR4DL3I9H

I have never been to E3, but i have to admit that i like the idea of E3 much better than the reality; let loose in a huge stadium like structure and allowed to play all the upcoming games before most of the world, versus standing in the same line for 6 hours to play 1 game. I think i will stick to being an armchair E3 viewer, thanks. Although, i would like to go to at least one game show exhibition before i die.

Posted by Otacon

It's got to be Twisted Metal. 

Posted by LeetBalla

His mouth is fountain that spews bullshit. I will never buy his games.

Edited by tekmojo

I'll never get a chance to goto an E3, kind of wish I still lived in Cali. Cool Vlog.
