I know I am on hiatus...

...but I ran across this and HAD to share:




With the exception of the confederate flag (which makes me kind of ill), this is ALMOST enough to make me join the army...just so I could drive and ride in this thing! Amazing!!! Man, when I strike it rich, I'm so getting me a General Lee!!!...with an American Flag replacing the confederate flag, naturally :)

Ok, back to work- see you guys in a few weeks!

Actually, little known fact. It's very hard to find a Charger in that year, because they used so many of them up filming the Dukes Of Hazard.

What cracks me up is the comment that the confederate flag makes you ill. I have heard this several times over the years and I find it amusing. The confederate flag is apart of the US history and is a flag that doesn't represent slavery, but represents the difference of beliefs of one group versus another group internally. This is whole idea is what the US is based on since we didn't believe in what England wanted so we parted ways. Yes slavery is wrong, but the flag is much more then just slavery and the reason I laugh is that people feel they need to say your comments so they don't offend black people, but only dumb rednecks really tie slavery to the flag and thats a whole different story.

I grew up in the south. Trust me when I say, the flag down there for many people represents a desire for the old south to rise again, for things to go back to the way they used to be. And while to be sure, not EVERYTHING- not even CLOSE to everything- about the old south was bad, the reality is, the flag for many represents the past- a past that will forever be associated with slavery. So while I think that flag should be in a museum and in history books so we can all remember our history, the fact that it still flies today over government/tax funded buildings (not to mention on tax funded humvees like in this picture) is - in my mind- unacceptable.

Dave, I live in the south and now know what you are talking about. It just makes me sad how many stupid rednecks there are that take things and twist them into something that really makes people in the south look stupid. Then again not only the flag is something that is taken out of history to have the meaning changed and really hurt the original thought behind it, but that isn't just rednecks, thats just stupid people.

Asurastrike said...

The American flag is the only flag we should be flying. Period. I don't care what the confederate flag may mean to individuals, to the rest of the country it is the flag of the biggest traitors in American history, the Confederates. :)

Funny stuff. I was born, raised, and have lived me life in the south. People that fly the "stars and bars" claim that it doesn't represent slavery and they aren't racist for flying it. Yet in each and every case the person eventually reveals their racism through some ignorant and ridiculous observation, usually prefaced with some reference to how many black friends they have.

If it looks like crap, smells like crap, etc...

Hey Dave!

Just stopping by to say hi. I tried to catch up on as many posts as I could, but I just wanted to let you know that the Rocky vid made my day!

IV is my favorite because it's the only one my friend had and we watched it many times (as kids) because it gives you that rush to get you to the top of the mountain.

Anyways, I just wanted you to know that I believe in you guys, and that it shows how nice of a guy you are that after all these hits - you still feel the pressure.

Fight on my friend...Fight on.

Spencer Wasden

P.S. Thank for the Eckhart Tolle reference. It's been great!

Hey Dave, just wanted to say I'm a huge fan of yours. TM2 got me into gaming, and it's still one of my all time favorite games. I love the work you did on TM2, TM:B, and God Of War. Three amazing games. I haven't played the original TM that much, but I ordered it from Amazon the other day. It's a really good game as far as I remember.

I hope that TM for Playstation 3 absolutely rocks. I know that as long as you and the original team work on it, it'll be amazing. You guys were the reason I got a PS2. Now you'll probably be the reason I get a PS3.

As awesome as TM is, you're right, the franchise needs some changing. It'll always be fun the way it is, but with a few modifications TM for PS3 will be epic. Look, it's stupid to make a suggestion on your blog, but what the hell, the worst you can say is no. I'm not some guy asking for a job or anything, just a suggestion from a fan.

I think that we need some more levels in single player. More than 8. I'm talking 16 or something insane like that. At least 12. TM 2 and Black are so amazing, and you feel like you've been on a great journey as you progress (especially TM2), but I think we need some more
levels. I know it's tough coming up with levels, but you guys are so good at doing it. Also I think that picking levels should be eliminated. Why not just beat both of them (I.E. I don't think you should have to pick between Suburbs and Freeway. You should have to play them both.)? Obviously Online Play is key. I liked the 8 players stage on TMBO. Too bad the server is down there. Oh make sure you've got 4 players for Death Matches when it's not online (I'm sure that goes without saying.)!

This is something I've always wanted to see too. When there's a co-op tournament, I think at the end that the two friends who just won either have to fight each other to the death where only one can claim his prize, or both the characters can try and ask Calypso for their respective wishes. You can really pull some mad stories depending on the characters that teamed up together. Because every time my friends and I beat it, I wonder what would happen if Axel and Minion (TM2) won? What would they wish for? What would happen? Would they try to screw each other over? I know their goals would be the same, but having a partner might change their demeanors and what not. Plus you have endless stories that'll make replay value even bigger than it already is.

I just got Head On for PS2 and I think there's some potential with Sweet Tooth on foot. Definitely keep working on that part.

I don't know, that's just a few things I had in mind.

I thank you and Scott Campbell and the rest of your team for all the wonderful times you've given me and my friends playing your games. Keep it up, your games are hardcore, ballsy, gory and have amazing characters. Thank you so much!

And yet the irony in all of this is that the people calling southerners "rednecks" and "bigots" for waving the confederate flag are being bigots themselves are they not? I guess it's just okay because most southerners are white and male, right?

Regardless, I'm a southerner myself, and yes, grew up in the south with a southern family. The fact of the matter is, the south is one of the most patriotic parts of our country today, and flying the "rebel flag" is a display of little more than that: rebelliousness. Just like when AC/DC did it, just like when Lynyrd Skynyrd did it. Not everything has to be about racism and political correctness people, time to recognize that.

Hey dave, i check your blog once in a while just to see whats going on in your world, so i know youre a busy person. i wanted to know if you saw that commercial with Michael Bay for verizon? that commercial was pretty Awesome. bad boys 1 and 2 and transformers those were damn cool movies. and i cant wait for Iron Man, that looks incredible. But i think that one of the greatest movies of all time would be if a God of War movie was to be made, that would be an awesome movie that would go down in history man. I know you probably have thought about it but youre just pretty busy these days so you have to put it on hold for now. But im just saying i think if you saw a picture of me, you would agree that i look like Kratos and id play him so perfectly. I just want an audition for this part dude, i really think you wont be disappointed. I know you cant give out your email, so im thinking if i just post links to pics of me looking like Kratos over here.

David Mason said...

You realize that the north owned slaves as well, right?

Or that the "Confederate" flag displayed in your pic is actually a newer design that happened after the civil war? The original design, which DID stand for slavery, isn't displayed anywhere.

Makes both sides who argue it look a bit dumb once you realize it all. Further proving people get in a tissy over dumb shit.

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, Cochese. I'm sure your spoiled, conservative lily-white redneck ass will be missed,

You're going to stop buying sci-fi video games about mutants and psychopaths blowing each other up because the game designer is sickened by a racist symbol of the slave-owning south, then you my friend need to get out more. First, pull your head out of your ass and then slowly step out into the sunlight...

Fact: The North owned more slaves than the South.

Fact: The South had more free blacks than the North did at the time of the war.

Fact: The North attacked the South because of the rising economy in the South due to agriculture, while the North's industrial economy was failing. If the South had left the Union than the North would have been bancrupted.

Fact: Whites who believe the nonsense story that the North fought the South so that the mighty negro could be free are idiots.

Fact: Winners of wars write the history books, you're mainsteam history is wrong against the factial historic record of what happened during the War of Northern Aggression.

Fact: The South is occupied terroritory.

Fact: I'm not a redneck, I live in the North. I prefer truth to the negroid lie of the "Evil South" to further their own secret agendas.

Fact: When America has a black President it will follow the route of every other country ever led by blacks...it will go down the toilet. South Africa anyone?

Fact: Many "free" blacks fought to keep their way of life in the South because they knew what was really going on. Just check the records of the "Sons of Confederate Veterans" to verify that.

Fact: Blacks have a purpose and direction under white rule. Name one African country that isn't a cesspool?

No matter what you say the truth is the truth and facts are facts. Might want to read the "Bell Curve" as well since it was you "liberals" who asked for the test in the first place and the results proved the Conservatives right as always.

PS - If you're idea of a conservative is George Bush Jr. than you are an idiot.

Anonymous said...

You lost when you used the word "negroid". You lost the right to have a conversation with decent, educated people. Or people at all, for that matter, since racists such as yourself are less "people" and more "animal".

This is the blog of a video game designer, not a KKK message board. Take your hatred and racism to a website more fitting for scum-sucking pusbags such as yourself.

Anonymous said...

Negroid is a scientific term Mr. Educated. So is Mongoloid and Caucasoid. I'm sure you knew that though. Facts are still facts regardless of whether your little feelings were hurt.

Mr. Jaffe has the right to feel as he does, just as I have a right to respond to it how I see fit. It's called freedom, something no liberal seems to understand. A liberals idea of freedom is agreeing with them and that's it. Any other opinion is considered a sin in the Liberal Pantheon of all that is degenerate in society.

I won't be posting again on here because obviously no one here has an education above seventh grade.

And yes, I wouldn't buy a game again that I know "Jaffepants" is involved in if there's a chance that a single dime of mine would go to one of his liberal causes. I know that's a hard concept for any white-guilt laden mind to understand.

Have a nice life Commies.

read your history, the war was started as a industrial society vs an agricultural society. Slavery was added to draw in more of the western states that originally had no alliance to either side. Lincoln did it to get more troops beacause the north was losing. Times have changed, slavery was a way of life. my wife and I are white and she found out that two of her relatives were sold to a local family,a boy age 6 to be trained as a butler and a girl age 4 to be trained as a maid. get over it! it represents heritage, not hatred. people associate the flag to slavery because of it's use by the kkk, they need to get their own and let the stars and bars stand proud. ever been to Gettysburg, everyone should. why do black americans want to erase the war that won their freedom? That's like every American not celebrating 4th of july...and why do they have to be called black americans? I can see that for myself. I donot refer to myself as russian-american. I am an american, and their peple have been here longer than mine!!!anonymos because I haven't got a google account

Anonymous said...

Also, read the proclamation and you will see Lincoln only freed the slaves in the states that seceded from the USA. The northern slaves were not freed until later.

seems like a lot of hatred for a colored piece of cloth. I thought we were supposed to be a tolerant society, a society which is considerate of other people's beliefs and feelings. Dosen't sound like many of you are tolerant of any bodies rights. sounds like communism. "you will like what I like or you are dead." With the anniversary of gettysberg being july 1,2, and third, try to remember 51,000 americans died and another 24,000 were injured fighting for what they believed in. Fly the stars and stripes along side the stars and bars to honor those fallin brothers...
