Last Post Of The Year + Nyquil Dreams + WIN AN EAT SLEEP PLAY JACKET!


Wow- that didn't take long. I guess I should have said the FUNNIEST overall cause there were some funny ones in there. But according to the rules- that I made up while tired and getting my first buzz of Nyquil- the FIRST 2 things to make me smile/laugh are the winners. So with that said, here they are:

Lateralus sent me this that both amused me and made me kind of sick to my stomach:

And then this little gem from Delriach! Fucking love this! Where did it come from? How did I miss this?!?!

So there you have it. The first ever winners of the official EAT SLEEP PLAY jacket!

If you two guys will shoot me your emails in this post, I will get your jackets mailed out around the 5th of January. They are both the same size I think and I don't recall what that size is. And as always, I am not responsible- nor is EAT SLEEP PLAY- for getting you the jacket at all, getting it to you by a certain time, making sure you don't do stupid shit with the jacket,etc...we WILL send it but just saying that once it hits the mail, we're off the hook :)

But when you get it, would love to get a pic of you wearing it for the blog :)

Happy New Year everyone. Be safe, have fun, and thanks so much for all the great support over the last year!


Check back once the ball drops Pacific Time to see who the 2 winners are :)

An excellent vertical slice demo of a indie game made by a small group of forward thinking developers. Definitely play with sound.

Hey David!

Seeing as you've been enjoying Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots so much. I thought you might get a laugh out of this. Its pretty old but still really funny. :)

@dave jaffe

So your into chick flick, rap and animals movies.Wow dude, that is the complete opposite of God of war.Lol.
How many of your blogs do you usually do on a weekly basis?Oh and when your making Twisted metal could you make it a little less arcady?It does have to be like gran turismo it seems way to arcady.You try to turn a little bit and you end up doing a 360.Thanks and it would be great if you could post a response.

may not make you smile, but it sure as hell will make you think.

take care David


MvmntInGrn said...

The ideas for the blog sound great. The fact you considered stopping/going on hiatus shows that maybe something wasn't going the right way. Glad to see you have thought it out and decided to change the style rather than stop blogging! Looking forward to whatever you end up posting.

As for funny material, I have included the pictures below and figured you would like them seeing as you were big into the election. Enjoy!






Note: None of the pictures are created by me, but they are funny. :)

I think the idea of adding some more technical background to the blog will be great, but really, don't stop criticizing things... it inspires your readers to not be passive about things.

The song is in Portuguese and basically it says "Beber, Cair, Levantar" or Drink, Fall, Get up.

Gazzo said...

I'd shoot ya some links, but after 76 people or whatever, there's noway you could've not smiled at any of 'em, heh.

However...i <3 u Jaffe.

Wait. What do you mean that didn't make you smile!?!!! :)

Regarding the actual video post, I say, as long as you don't stop being personal with people and don't stop blogging, I'm game. I really like the style of your blog because it's not so "professional." In fact, this is the only blog I really follow.

Gazzo said...

Oh, and thanks for a great year, your blog really lightened up my day on more than one occasion.

That cookie dough thing, although understandable, was ridiculous though. :)

See ya next year, Dave.

Crossopholis said...

Well, first off, as for changing your blog, I liked just hearing about what was going on in your life. I like knowing how a popular video game designer lives, and I don't come here to read about games (though I do also enjoy it when you post about them).

Also, it's your blog. Who's to say it's NOT your place to call out individual people on your own damn blog? You did it with politicians who screwed up, why would it be any different with anyone else if that's how you really feel?

Anyway, I know I'm not one of the first two, but:



Both should at least make you smile/say "wow, who would want to build that?" Happy new years.

Hey Jaffe,

I built a boat once, never stopped smiling since. I think you might like it.

I don't know if you've seen this before because it's pretty old, but it made me smile when I first saw it. Even if I don't win you should check this out because it's amusing.

My PSN name is KonfusedKat, maybe we could hang out on Home sometime.

Sadeq said...

Man, you keep kind of bashing CAC and, to me and my bro at least, it's one of the best PS3 games (including blu-ray games, not just PSN). That game made us jump and laugh for many long nights. But since you said there are things you would have done differently, so here's a question: if Sony came to you and said make CAC 2, what would you do to make a more successful (sales wise, at least) sequel?

Anonymous said...


The title says it all. Just watch first few seconds and it's enough. Even the most badass bastards smile at this! :) (though Kratos would surely tear him apart :(). Happy New Year folks!

Anonymous said...

hey dave..

fuck theres alot of comments, generall theres like 25 or so?

as much as i know you want to change how you come across, i dont think theres anything wrong with speaking your mind..as long as on a personal level the people your commenting against know its not a personal thing, cause im sure if they made those same comments towards you that it would be understood that its not personal....that said i hope you caught the recent post on kotaku where they did comment positively towards you and your personality...so i know its not just me that appreciates it

also because generally you share the opinions with a vast number of gamers...and if your voicing those opinions, and they are infact heard then i hope the people take it to heart...cause lets be honest that add was not as "today" as it could have been

also there was a post like a year ago on kotaku where the developers showed pics of their gaming areas and offices...it was awesome but you only had shown your office...if its something your comfertable in doing you should totally show us your gaming/tv area...i think it would be really nice (maybe its just me)

(im probably going to repost this on a later blog since its likely buried in 120+ youtube links lol)

anyways hope you and your family have a wicked awesome new years

DeathMammoth said...

SonyJunkie said...

God people are greedy. As soon as you give something away people swarm to it. I think you should speak your mind, that is a huge reason that I watch your vids and I just like how you are down to earth with everything.

Don't know your email but here is the vid that I think is cool. I really want a jacket. I want to wear it to school so bad.

That second one with Kojima came from a video Konami released on April Fools Day before MGS4 came out. It was about 10 minutes of the beginning of MGS4 but with the main character of Assassin's Creed as Snake. At the end of the video Kojima comes in and says that.

IMO Dave a focused blog is a good way to go. I like the sound of your goals. I know you don't have ill will or disrespect when you call people out on things but, it still can create issues none the less.

Hey man I just wanted to say how much recpect I have for you.It's awsome that your so high in the game industry and still so down to earth.I love the fact that u have your own blog and reach out to your fans like that.Love your games I was always a fan of twisted metal and I think god of war is the best story written for a game so far.My peronal favorite Kratos is unmatched by any game character.And even though I know most people on here are trying to get to talk to you and this is a ___________long shot.If you every were looking to chat or play a good game of motorstorm 2 or resistance 2 online hit me up that would be fucking awesome.My psn screen name is chad22hkd and if any one on here is looking for a challenge in motorstorm 2 look me up.I have gotten pretty good at that one.Well have a good one your fan chad
