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 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.

Andrew EisenYes, I'm such a big Nintendo dork that I read Nintendo's quarterly financial reports.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenCool tidbit - Mario Kart 8 sales account for more than half of total Wii U software sales for the last quarter even though it was only available for the last third.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am

ZippyDSMleeWouldn't they be able to afford and get done in a timely manner a general gba emluator for the 3DS? It seems to me if they want to make money off sales they need to do it.07/31/2014 - 7:25am
Sora-ChanAmbassador program, that's what I was looking for. Anyway the other games that have been made no longer exclusive to the early adopters got updates in their software. It'll only be a matter of time more than likely for the GBA to get the same treatment.07/31/2014 - 5:35am
Sora-ChanI might be naming it incorrectly when I say "founder" i mean the program for earlier adopters.07/31/2014 - 5:34am
Sora-Chanthe 3DS's GBA emulator was a rush job due to the founder program. No other GBA titles have been released on the 3DS yet. If/When they do get around to it, they'll more than likely update the emulation software.07/31/2014 - 5:32am
Zenemulator...it's not just a slap job that makes "some" work..they do it for each which is why they work so well. I would rather have the quality over just a slap job.07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
ZenMatthew there is a difference between "worked" and "accurate". You play the Nintendo VC titles they play as damn close to the original as possible. The PSP would just run them as best they could, issues and all. And Masked...EACH VC title has their own07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm
