CLOSING TIME




Hey all- need a big break from blogging. Who knows- as always- I may come back to it but right now feels like a great time to stop.

To all of you regular readers who have gone with me on this journey over the years...we're just getting started! Soon our website for EAT SLEEP PLAY will be up and blazing and you'll be able to find me there on company blogs and the EAT SLEEP PLAY forums.

Until then- have a great start of the summer movie season and I'll chat with you all soon!


Much thanks and much gratitude for all your support over the years!

later ya'll!

David

Looks like the man wasn't so happy about those pictures leaking the existence of cars and humans...

Thanks for writing such a cool blog. Damn, there's been quite a few highly debated topics based on things that you have written here!

Will miss your video blogs, will we ever see them on ESP?

da criminal said...

Nah- had nothing to do with that post at all. Other than realizing that I just don't have the energy to deal with opening and closing and containing any more cans of worms :)

Love reading your posts man... we'll be here when you decide to come back to blogging but I'll be keeping my eye on Eat Sleep Play. Take it easy and enjoy the hiatus :)

Jeez Dave, do you really have to stop blogging for awhile? I love seeing what you're up to. Whether it be an interesting website, story, ride, or game, it's usually something that brings a smile to my face. Plus you've put me on to comics online and some pretty cool books and movies. I hope this isn't permanent. Heck, you could not talk about games and I'd still visit your blog. Good luck on your game. I hope you and Eat Sleep Play make an appearance at E3 during Sony's press conference.

God speed.

you know you do this all the time, right?

Hah. I dunno. This sounds a bit more...final than the typical: gonna take a two/three week hiatus, oh wait its been three days but I'm back!

Gonna miss the blog, Dave.

Glad it wasn't about those pictures, though I'm sure you'd have put up a hell of a video cursing about it if it had been.

Going to miss your video blogs. Can't think of any other developer who will take a call in the middle of recording to tell the person that they're interrupting and then leave it in when they put the video up.

Hope we'll see more of those on ESP, or maybe as Easter Eggs in an upcoming game?

hey david, so how long is a while? a week? a month? let me know, i want to have some idea when i should start coming back.

Stephen said...

Hope its not a permanent departure! I like many others have very much enjoyed reading your blog and the insight it's given into your life and opinions.

Best of luck David, looking forward to hearing about the new game

First time I've written a comment. Been following your blog for quite a while now. I guess all good things must come to an end... or at least have a prolonged interlude. Look forward to seeing your next title, it's a new Twisted Metal isn't it? /joke

Look forward to when this, or the Eat Sleep Play blog is up. Good luck with whatever you're workin on.

Nymo said...

Of all the game developers out there, I think you are the only one who have really took us along for the ride on game development.
I'll miss your posts and video blogs, gaming related or (namely) not.

You will still be tweeting on Twitter, right?

well, See ya soon, be it back on the blog, the PlayStation.Blog, the EAT SLEEP PLAY site, or elsewhere, and looking forward to the latest from EAT SLEEP PLAY! ;)
Thanks for keeping up a great blog...

lawl. Dude's being anal that he failed to stir up his fanbase's curiousity by flatout saying what hes working on.

Hey whats up Dave? never really posted here, but I watch your shit. cool thing I always liked is your point of view and blunt attitude. I don't think you should quit bloggin unless you are just bored sick of it because i think you give a lot of insight and honest (which is rare) opinions not only about the game industry but in entertainment in general. I know you are just BSing about the shit you love, but I think a lot of us like the same shit so it's refreshing to hear honest thoughts on everyday shit from someone who has actually done something in the industry. I know you get a lot of flack for speaking your mind, but those jerk-offs can cram it. Every time you've "freak-out" (as they've called it) you are actually really calm and have a decent reason behind the rant. Who cares if you swear and shit. Anyways, hope to buy more games from Eat, Sleep, Play and watch more vid blogs in the future. I think you are a little too outspoken to quit making those anyways... lol

Having to shut up just before E3?

Had any good meetings with Sony, or is it really way too early?

I wouldn't be surprised if your title was at E3... Not demoed, but CG trailered....

Originally I wrote a long gushy message, but I know your a busy man. Twisted Metal 1,2, Black & Head on are in my opinion the most entertaining games ever created, they truly stand the test of time. Every time a new TM comes out I get goose bumps... I stumbled upon your blog trying to figure out if there was ever going to be a new one released for PS3. Love your Blog, very sorry to see it come to an end. Look forward to ESP. Take care. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

Guess its closing time again :) Dammit! Enjoy the summer flicks.

Only been checking your blog for a few weeks,so it's a shame your stopping.
Good luck with game,and I have no doubt it will rock,and blag Sony to put those eat sleep stickers in the packaging.

KonKat said...

You should post here when you get your company site up.

gatormatt80 said...

Sucks you're leaving for awhile. I really enjoyed your insight on games and life in general. I could listen to you talk for days about nothing. Because you can make anything sound interesting. You are truly a good person. Good luck w/ everything!!

After the hiatus will you continue posting on blogger.com or will you spend more time at the Eat Sleep Play website once it's up? Anyways, good luck with the game and we'll see you soon.

Harry said...

Mr. Deja Vu said...

Wow..."Closing Time"...I've been visiting your blog since...I believe...6 months ago - and I have to say that it was pleasant reading your blog posts. Didn't miss a single one really. They were really fascinating. Wish you the best of luck on your project and I'm personally looking forward to it.

Rock out - Mr. Deja Vu

Adam said...

You'll be back, motherfucker. You'll be back.

Joel said...

Sad to see you taking a break, but I do understand how it goes.

Good luck with everything, and I'll keep an eye on your twitter to see when you start blogging or writing or talking to the public again.

hope it won't be too long. :p

It has been a blast reading your blog, and you've definitely encouraged me to think about some very interesting issues, and check out some cool tv shows and movies and games.

Keep it real, man.

Lucas Sparks said...

Jaffe! I have your blog on my RSS feed and it showed you posted a new video blog, but you quickly took it down. Lucky for you I didn't see it - what was it!?!

Anonymous said...

Dont leave! curse you gaming nerds and your photoshop abilties >:(

Harlequiine said...

Sad to see you stop blogging Jaffe, hope you're back soon mate, I'll definitely be on the ESP forums.

Looking foward to the announcement of the new game, take care of yourself.
