TWITTERING FOOL

For the next few weeks anyway- perhaps beyond- I'll be in Twitter mode only.

So busy with the game these days that I just don't have the energy/desire to do the blogging thing.

Our EAT SLEEP PLAY website should be up soon and I'll be doing blogging from there and I'll let you know when it hits.

But for now, I'll be tweeting several times/day (if not more)...it's the perfect way to communicate with folks who dig our work without taking away energy from the work itself!

Talk soon you guys/gals!

David

I f'ing hate Twitter.

KonKat said...

lol.. Good luck with your game.

F1REST0RM said...

Love your blogs, but don't want you to take away time away from the game, especially if you don't feel compelled to do so. Good luck Jaffe and can't wait to see it! (Next year's E3 can't come soon enough xP )

David, what is the best way to reach Sony if you want to send them a suggestion regarding the marketing on their PS3?

tobz1000 said...

Aww, I'll miss the blog... but I think the more pressing matter is finding out what you're working on/getting it in my hands. Probably a good decision to stick to Twitter for a while.

jleack said...

Alright man, I'll be on twitter too... let me add you really quick. My username is jleack on there.

I firmly believe that blogging is dead all thanks to Twitter. Lately, rather for a long while, I haven't been in the mood to read blogs that are too long. I simply get bored. Video blogs are different as it feels personal to the viewer. But whatever happens, Jaffe, I'll be there. I can't wait to hear what the new game is from you guys/gals at Eatsleepplay.

Obonicus said...

Think you can give us a heads-up of when we're going to find out what your new project is? This year?

Anonymous said...

Man, its pretty funny. I first started reading this blog because I thought it would be cool to view blogs from a high profile video game developer. That's now like the last reason why I come here - now its because you can write some damn good blogs that are not only interesting to read, but thought provoking as well. So I've gotta say, kind of bummed that the site won't be updated much anymore, but I understand your reason - good luck Jaffe, and I look forward to playing whatever you and the guys at Eat Sleep Play have hidden up your sleeve. By the way, be sure to make this one a mothafuckin masterpiece to stick it to those bitches at Gamespot who shat on Calling All Cars! lol Jaffe for the win!

Eesh. Take care of yourself. Good luck with the game I'm sure it will be as awesome as your previous games. So no worries here. :)

Zodiak said...

can't wait for the ESP forums, you already got a following here lol.

Cant wait for the new game Jaffe. Im a big fan of twisted metal. Just bought black again cause I sold it to game spot a while ago and regretted it.

Rami said...

Hey David. Have you gotten the chance to play the Uncharted 2 beta yet? I have an extra code in case you didn't.

Like they said on conan "FLUSH TWITTER DOWN THE SHITTER"

Anonymous said...

I second the shitter, I think twitter is a freaking conspiracy. I like coming to your site because you take the time communicate in a less than abbreviated means. Twitter while you can, but Im pretty sure we still wanna see you blogging and sticking cool clips on your site. Keep rocking in the free world.

da criminal said...

Anon- I have not given up blogging at all. Still love it. Just swamped with work. I'll be back! :)

A sentence is worth a hundred words amirite?

Im done with you Jaffe. No one is interested in your tweets. We want some vlogs. But ive waited too long now, I dont think Ill be coming back.

KonKat said...

@anon: That's your problem. If you can't respect the fact that he's busy making his game for his consumers, then I don't know what to say. Just leave. Unless you're joking, in which case; that was hilarious.

Anonymous said...

Busy with his game? What has he been doing these past years?

KonKat said...

Obviously he's been working on the game. I don't think he's had a big team, so he can't do what Activision does with Call of Duty series with pumping them out every year or 2. A lot of work goes into this shit, and when you don't have a lot of people it just takes longer (team Ico has been working 4 years on The Last Guardian). Also, what do you mean "all these years"? It's only been a little over 2 years since his last release, just be patient.

KonKat said...

Obviously you didn't say the words "all these years", but you made it sound like he's taking too long on this game. That's simply not true.

da criminal said...

If I may:

we put out Calling All Cars in 2007.
We put out Twisted Metal: HEAD ON Extended Edition last year. That game had 4 brand new levels and tuning that needed designing as well and tons of behind the scenes stuff. And yes, we are a small team.

And we've been working on our new PS3 game for about 15 months now, give or take.

Not to mention, we've had to staff up the company and the team has had to build tons of new tech. It ain't making eggs and toast...this shit takes time.

well said Jaffe, well said. Although, wouldn't it be grand if making a next gen title actually WAS as easy as making eggs & toast? Because if it were, you could take even MORE trips to Disney Land!!! YAY! Sorry, overtired and just being a little sarcastic lol - but seriously - make this one the king pin of all your previous work combined! Use the force and get this stuff together - we believe in the Jaff-meister (or if you prefer, Mickey Jaffe) all jokes aside, Im sure your next piece is gonna be phenomenally killer.

I thought TM Head On was made by another bunch of people.

Archminion said...

yeah,

Here's hoping you'll be able to announce the announcement date soon...

iddqd said...

I signed up for twitter when I read this because I enjoyed your blog so much (username: crashazard)...but I'm honestly not feeling that site very much. They must have hired a chimp to do their interface design. Haha.

Of course, it's completely understandable if you're busy and can't keep something "extra" up like a blog. It's for fun man, and the readers like it to be something you do for fun, not as a chore :P ...so no worries. If nothing else, I can tell you that the all of the work you have put into the site has been greatly appreciated by your readers. Thanks for your time and effort :)

Oh well...hope everything is going well for you and your projects!

Ok, I'm not feeling this twitter buisness, it was cool, but you make it hard to follow when half your tweets are responses to thing I can't get.

Archminion said...

twitter is shit.

I can understand that you're hard at work on the new game and that is fair enough though.
