God of War's David Jaffe had dropped hints on his blog a long time ago about not wanting to make just epic titles, expressing also his desire to make more casual games. What he meant, nobody knew. Initially, he had a game titled HL in work for the PSP, but it got shelved for now. Jaffe expertly drops a few hints on the new casual title he's working on: "It's totally NOT a game like HL was going to be, or God of War for that matter. It has stuff in common with Twisted Metal, Bomberman, and...well, a few other things that I ain't gonna talk about yet!" So... it's like a destructive party game?
The game wasn't at TGS, but it's supposed to be floating around the "air waves" in the next couple of months. Let's piece this together. It's a smaller, casual title. It's like Bomberman and Twisted Metal meets "other things". It'll be floating around the "air waves" this holiday season. Jaffe is a Sony employee. The game runs in 1080i. Can you say: launch title for Sony's e-distribution? Let's hope so, since we've seen very little on the online experience from Sony.
