Best of luck with your focus groups, Mr. Jaffe. I just wanted to tell you I'm a huge huge fan of your work, and my dad is too. He got me Twisted Metal 2 when it came out and he got fanatical about that game. Prior to that he hadn't played a game since Pac Man, and TM2 had him up until 5 am some nights. He's pushing 60 now and still loves to play; in fact he bought a PS3 and the only game he has on it is Twisted Metal 2! We played a bit over the Christmas holiday and it brought us right back to when we first played. So if you are making a new Twisted Metal game, I really hope that you can recapture the things that made that game great. I know since it would be on PS3 that people are going to expect lots of bells and whistles and such, fancy graphics, yadda yadda... but I really hope it can also be something my old man can enjoy too. I know living up to the standard of that game will be really tough, but I'm praying that you can make something that just feels fun to play and isn't too overly complex or off-putting to crusty old people like my dad who don't want to learn a bunch of new shit. It will be incredibly tough, but I know that if any guy in the industry can pull it off it'd be you. Best of luck to you and your team.

Well Dave....I hope you survive your crackers. Enjoy those M&M's Scott :) Damn now I want a bag...
Good luck on day two.

KonKat said...

I have M&Ms too, they're the christmas kind... so they're red and green.... I feel like a winner.

Well good luck with your meeting with Sony, as well as the focus test.

..by the way, hi Scott! Nice hat.

Eddie said...

Oh HOLY FUCK! KEEBLER! You already ate that whole pack, didn't you? Well, I hope that particular pack isn't contaminated.

Assrash23 said...

GrYnder said...

Haha, good vlog post. Nice to see Scott there, even though he didn't have a whole lot to say :P

Made me laugh when you said he had nothing more to say, but then he shimmied over with his M&Ms and said "PRODUCT PLACEMENT."

You guys rock.

ryuk said...

hey, jaffe all i can say is i am so excited about whatever you are cookin up, but i do remember some hidden message in a PSP twisted metal game, that gamers decoded and it said "twisted metal is coming to PS3" do you care to comment on this please, tell me if i am misinformed

Sean said...

haha with the salmonella comment jaffe. lol.

and mr.Jaffe, good luck with Sony. and get approved for a fucking E3 showing. ooo Leipzig showing would be cool. yeah shit announce at E3 or Leipzig

Techworldwide said...

Either Twisted Metal or Another God of War Game for the PSP :) im just guessing for the second one but i hope its true, orr maybe its a new project game :)

Guy said...

Good luck for tomorow be great if you could tell us how it goes.

P.S. seems that kotaku did read your post the other day:
"Hopefully, we'll get to see what original God Of War producer David Jaffe saw. Then we can be all "Here is your God of War III preview" and "Here is your vindication, Jaffe" or something along those lines."
:P

grindhouse said...

David... are we at least close to you being able to tell us what game your working on?

-SCoLD- said...

Mr. Jaffe,

After I graduate in programming, I'm going to send you my resume and move to Salt Lake City. Hopefully I'll be able to make TMPS4 with you guys...

Good luck with the salmonella!

We're all crossing our toes for your big guy meeting tomorrow. Hopefully everything goes like it should and we will have the announcement in the next couple weeks. Maybe that's just wishful thinking though!

Ah, its good seeing that you guys are working together again. "The whole is
greater than the sum of the parts. Marcus' rational mind and Needles' fevered
insanity descend into a vortex of sinister chaos. The only possible outcome is
the total annihilation of anything that stands in their path."

yep definetly sounds like a dave jaffe and scott campbell pairing in the TM world

Goodluck!

Good luck on the green light meeting. Hopefully you can tell us about the game soon.

I was wondering if you can go into more detail about how the focus group/testing works? Like, do you just choose random people? College students? Different age groups? Just family and friends? Do they get paid to participate? Do they actually play the game or just get shown footage? What type of questions are asked? What kind of data is gathered? How does their information impact the development of the game? Etc. It would be awesome if you can give more information about focus groups, if you think it is effective, and how is it different than play testing and which is more effective.

And Obama is officially president! Woohoo!

Give Scott a thanks for the awesome TM:HOETE!

Really captured the feel you guys had on TM2, but seemed to lose in Black. Glad the PS2 port made it out.

Good luck on the green-light! Hurry up and get some viral teaser shit together if it's a go.
