God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

November 6, 2008 -

David Jaffe, famed designer of the God of War series, is ecstatic over Barack Obama's victory in Tuesday's presidential election.

As GP sister-site GameCulture reports, Jaffe's morning-after blog is typically candid: 

...wow...

 

...bleeping thank you America!

 

Now let's just hope Obama can really do what he says and bring ALL OF US together...Democrats, Independents, AND Republicans!

 

What an amazing night!

 

Bleep, I'd hug Bill O'Reilly at this point!

"Now let's just hope Obama can really do what he says and bring ALL OF US together...Democrats, Independents, AND Republicans!"

 

Yes! And while he's at it he can convince Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to put aside their differences and make one console that'll play everyone's games!

 Like the WiiStation 360, that's not bound to happen any time soon, simply because the three factions in question are in direct competition with each other. The closest I've seen of this is Sony allowing Nintendo to put Solid Snake into Smash Bros Brawl, and that was more of a "hype MGS4" move than pure fanservice a la Sonic.

If that DOES happen, though, I'll be the first to sprout butt-wings and fly away to Mars.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

That had nothing to do with Sony so much as Konami allowing the use of their character.  Sony doesn't own the Metal Gear or Final Fantasy franchises as some people think they do for some reason.  Those companies put their games on the system they want, when they want.  That's why the 360 is getting Final Fantasy 13 and Konami has made comments that they are thinking of bringing Metal Gear Solid 4 to the 360.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

What's your source for them thiking about MGS4 for the 360. They've been preetty adamant about not porting it for a while now.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Oh. Crap, my bad.

But it did increase the MGS4 hype.

And I think Snake was the reason Nintendo added all that detail to the characters. I was a bit surprised to see the denim of Mario's overalls.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Also, don't forget that both of those franchises were on Nintendo before they were on PlayStation. And the Twin Snakes was on Gamecube. And FFXI is on PC and 360 as well.

I think Nintendo and Microsoft are the only companies that have their own in house development teams for games. I'm pretty sure Sony has only second and third party publishers.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Actually, of the three, Sony has the MOST first and second party studios.  All told, over 45 companies/internal teams working under the Sony umbrella.  This is better than the Nintendo 12 and Microsoft... hell, who haven't they closed down yet?

I really hope he didn't actually use bleep ...

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

I wonder what Jaffe is going to be saying whe he has to alter Kratos to make him more "suitable" for the timid masses.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

You won't be saying that once Obama does something stupid concering video games there.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Tell you the truth, I wouldn't have been any happier had McCain won. There was no one who spoke out for games. It's a catch-22. Right gets it wrong and left just doesn't get it. The hypocrisy of conservatism and the herecy of liberalism. Like I said months ago: either way, we're screwed.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Do you know why no one spoke out for games?  Because it was a total non-issue.  Nobody cares.  Or, more to the point, games are so very far down the list of worthy discussion points during this time of financial crisis that to devote any kind of time/money to its discussion would have been laughed off the airwaves.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Guilty until proven innocent, huh?

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Given the Dem's track records concering video games, yes.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

The republicans are just as bad with their goose stepping cult of family-values that they try to enforce on everyone and everything.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Yup, interesting that the party that toted "change" is the same one who tries to ban every form of free thought if they think people can't decide on their own how to handle it.

Don't forget the PMRC....

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

And Republicans hate anyone who isn't some denomination of Christ-believes, socialist, liberals, etc.

Both parties suck. The end. But FUCK I would gotten out of here of McCain won. If that happened. fuck America. I couldn't take the idiocy of electing another Bush, and don't give me no bullshit he isn't, he even said it himself, that he voted with Bush over 90%; that's TOO fucking close to Bush to be comfortable.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

If you look at the 10% he didn't agree with bush, it was over stupid stuff.  Only once or twice was something of any importance.  I was cool with McCain until he chose Palin as VP.  That was the boulder that broke the camel's back.  That lady how no right to be in politics at all.

Obama made a lot of promises, and it will be interesting to see how he does.  I didn't think any of the candidates were right for the job from the start.  We'll see though...

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

And thats a bunch of bull crap.  Honestly, now, I think about leaving the country now that Obama is elected, but unfortunly, I wouldn't have anywhere to go.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Liberals threaten to leave the country and move to Canada or Europe if a Republican is elected.  Where do Conservatives threaten to move?  It doesn't matter anyway, no one ever follows through.

Give the man some time.  Feel free to criticize him when he actually does something not related to the campaign and meaningful.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

My friend threatened not to return to America last election if Bush won, and he stuck to that promise. 

I'm guessing that since only 27% of all Americans even HAVE passports, the hillbilly Obama haters won't be going anywhere soon.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

"hillbilly Obama haters"

Little bit o' hate speech right there. Typical zero-sum Liberal ideology. Rather than address facts or even opinions, the way you make your side look better is to bad mouth, mock, and otherwise derogate that which opposes you. 

It's not Obama being President that bothers me so much as the behavior of those who would do anything, say anything, and compromise everything that even "That One" considers of value to get him there.

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Enough already. I'm just glad the fight is over. The time for who-shoulda-coulda-woulda-won is over. The fact is: Obama is now our new President. And if we don't accept his views, we at least have to accept that. All we can do now is give him our support, and write to him, rally, and let him know how we feel and what we want. The election's over, but WE STILL HAVE A VOICE! Let Obama hear it!

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

You know that we can travel to half the planet without ever showing a passport, right? 

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Yeah, you just prefer to show a gun...

Re: God of War Designer Jubilant Over Obama Win

Stop type-casting Americans. We don't need a passport, period. Nothing to do with our second amendment.

We don't need them. Gun or not. Europeans do. We don't.
