PAUSE

hey- I've taken down tonite's post as I spoke with Heather very briefly and it turns out I may have missed the point of her rant. I will wait to get a little more info from her. As someone who has been burned by the net press in the past, I would not want to respond to something that was reported in a way that misses the point. Heather's one of the good ones - which I tried to make clear in my first post even tho I was going off- and she more than deserves the benefit of the doubt.


Will keep you posted....putting up some GDC pics tomorrow.

I never got to read it.

GoWII's amazing. Your(Chris Barlog's) team took GoWI & literally ripped apart it's core, discovered & retrieved an underworld of total badass gameplay unseen before & un-tapped a whole new realm of bad ass!! FTW!!!

If her rant was out of context then it's her responsibility to clarify her expression or point the moment she's saying it. To openly point out, in front of a panel of developers, that they're basically children, even calling them out individually on it, was way out of line, therefore the respect for her in this industry diminished.

Unless clarified, after the fact of getting verbally lashed at by not only the general gaming public but probably from her publisher whom she works for, who would want her around?

So yes clarity is in order. What was she thinking when she was ranting? And what was she trying to accomplish?

Gyshall said...

Your response was right on the money, Dave. Always love reading your blog.

I still have the post in Google reader so I can read it anytime I want :)

BBlader said...

Could somebody fill me in on this? I'm not quite sure what the hell just happened.

i agree with toybox 100 hundred percent. she must clarify b4 she goes on her rant. but i still believe the internet blew this out of proportion. but still to call power fantasy games adolescent games is insane. hell even flower is a power fantasy game ;-) every human being has the dream of flying/super strength/being super powered, soo obiviously thats what ppl are gunna buy. same with flower ppl bought it cause of the way u assume the power of the wind and the way it allows u to manipulate the grass/flowers. so idk what her idea of the PERFECT game is cause as long as we are humans and behave like we do and live in a society like we do, there will always be violence ;-) what does she want a bunch of sim games that neglect the fact that there is violence in the world. what is grown up? u know? srry bout ranting this just ticks me off. if u find out more from her plz let us know jaffe. peace fellas time to play Killzone2 :-D

Mr. Jaffe is there a email we can contact you at?

It's pretty simple, heather was simply saying as industry, if we keep congratulating ourselves for making "american pie" we won't get "the godfather" (talking strictly cinema here, not license exploitation). as consumers, you have a right to buy whatever you like, as a developer, you should understand you have the added responsibility of growing or advancing the medium as an art form. She shouldn't be ostracized for asking the industry to be bigger in it's vision. The fact that it came in the form of a rant, was because that the forum was designed to be that way.

Heather is playing the press and media to get attention with "shock and controversy" ... and like fools we are falling for it.

Why do people fall for this everytime?

Just ignore her and she will go away.

I would like to use this calm pause time to remind everyone of one of my all-time favourites made by D. Jaffe - Mickey Mania.

I nearly cried when i first saw it as a kid, and even today it looks absolutely wonderful.

Unbelievable ideas, perfect graphics and sound, wonderful level design.

Overall - a magical experience.

Thanx, David for giving us Mickey Mania - I'll never forget it :)

Joshua said...

Jaffe, your company's website seems like it's down right now.

Are you aware of this or is it working for everyone else?

Already posted above Grasshopper. Along with the Ars Technica link.

grasshopper said...

Ahh yeah...I swear I read all the posts above. Oh well, late to the party I guess. Amazing they post that crap as news without doing any checking in on it eh?

Hatchetforce said...

Yeah, that fake has been carried as real news all day long by quite a few sites. Well, fake unless Dave is doing something on the side as an April Fool's joke...
