In between bouts of God of War III and Darksiders, the legend behind God of War and Twisted Metal is furiously penning story and script ideas for his latest gaming project. Despite the fact that David Jaffe has still yet to reveal what that game is doesn’t matter one bit — gamers still listen.
Whether he’s showing up on the ridiculous show The Tester or he’s just randomly leaving small notes on his blog, it seems that it’s worth taking notice of. His latest comment is as follows:
Great weekend ya’ll! I’m stuck inside tomorrow banging out some more stories/scripts for our game. But I don’t mind- game is going well and the stories are fun to write. Plus we are doing all the movie making with the talented video production/services group at Sony San Diego and from the early tests we’ve seen from them so far, the flics look pretty cool! I think we’re gonna end up with some neat-ass movies in this game! But hell, in between writing, I’ll spend a little time with War/Darksiders. Yes, I am STILL trying to finish it. I thought I was gonna do it last weekend but a little game called GOD OF WAR III hit my inbox and I played that all weekend (finished it too!…when is the last time I finished a game in 1-2 days?!? Probably it was ICO back in tha day!)…
You should take three things from this excerpt, the first being that David Jaffe realizes ICO is a badass game just like the rest of us. The second being that God of War III is obviously going to be worth every penny of that $60 you spend on it. And, finally, that his new game is going to be filled with “neat-ass” movie sequences that’ll probably have our jaws dropping.
