Commenting on the 40-odd seconds of God of War III shown during last night's VGAs, series creator David Jaffe says that it looked good, but not as impressive as the game does in its most current form. You may recall that Jaffe had heaped some extremely high praise on the game's visuals after he rec...

Some of you were underwhelmed by God of War III's VGA debut ... including franchise creator David Jaffe. The outspoken developer did a little rant on his blog, indicating a small amount of disappointment in the presentation. "The footage aired on Spike looked meh. It was dark and grainy and I was ...

Even though David Jaffe snuck off to create his own game development studio he's still regarded as Kratos' daddy, so it's no surprise that he's been given a sneak peak at the next chapter of the God of War series. It's also no surprise that he took the opportunity to post about it on his blog in or...

"I ain't no fan boy but this mother f***ing game looks like nothing you've ever played...and you can hold me to that when this thing hits and when they start showing gameplay footage." Well, it probably looks a little bit like God of War II, since we imagine it still features the antics of world's...

Remember David Jaffe? Y'know, that guy that made Twisted Metal and God of War? He made his own studio after the tiring effort put into the PS2 God of War games. Since then, we've seen small hints at his next game (which is supposedly a new Twisted Metal for PS3). According to a recent post made on ...

Having recently confirmed his involvement with God of War's assuredly violent journey to the big (albeit considerably less interactive) screen, film director Brett Ratner is all set to combine his particular track record with the games-to-movie stigma and create the internet's greatest bitchfest. ...

The issue of putting game designers' names on boxes is one that we've been exploring since we read this dazzling piece way back in 2005. But David Jaffe, playing off of a recent MTV post, is in a unique position to comment, as one of the few designers who have somehow been able to set themselves a...

If you're not making sense of the mess that's leaked out of Jaffe's little red pen, don't worry, you're not alone. There's a reason why most developers choose to keep the uglier side of game design in house. But then, David Jaffe isn't most developers. If we squint hard enough, we can just barely s...

There's a fine line between madness and genius. For better or for worse, we can't tell which side of that line God of War creator David Jaffe is on. He's updated his personal blog with what he says is a look into his next game ... "sort of." These are doodles for level design that haven't been sen...

For those of you listening in on this virtual cheek pinch, we're talking about Jaffe's latest blog ...

It wasn't the smartest move of Fischer's career, and it attracted considerable bile ...

Oh, sorry. Did we interrupt you from playing Metal Gear Solid 4? Enough about that! Let's talk about something random and fun (and gloat about our amazingly awesome photoshop skills). David Jaffe updated his blog recently and spoke out about some of his greatest franchises and titles that simply did...

Get this: David Jaffe, misunderstood genius/opinionated loudmouth (delete as you see fit) and creator of God of War would love to oversee a Mario project. Of course, because this is David Jaffe we're talking about here, Mario had better prepare for a makeover, should the call ever come in ...

David Jaffe was supposed to speak at Game Developer's Conference with a session called "From Grunt, to God, to Startup." But, many feared that the man responsible for the Twisted Metal and God of War would be a no-show after a statement on his personal blog (see above). In his stead is Paul Steed...
