Jaffe's New Game Is Looking a lot Less Twisted

PSLS writes:

David Jaffe's latest game has long been rumored to be a Twisted Metal game, ever since a PlayStation 3 ad featured an image of mushroom dust cloud in the shape of clown, leading many to believe it was a hint of a new Twisted Metal game for the PS3.

Now, after Jaffe's latest comments, it appears we may have been thrown a curveball and EatSleepPlay's next game will be a completely new IP.

As long as it captures the atmosphere of TM, I'll be happy.

It's looking to be pretty dark as it is, with the mushroom cloud making a clown face and all.

hmm i am not surprised...

Jamegohanssj52789d ago

This guy is badass, so I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

oh yeah, dragulaaaaa!!!!!!!!11111111one oneoneone

Also keep in mind that he say "storieS for our game", to me that sounds ala TM ....maybe hes just misleading us, doing it on purpose.

I'm actually very happy at this news. I'm from UK, so obviously I don't really like Twisted Metal lol, but I love GOW. So before whenever everyone's written a list stating "Jaffe Exclusive," I just passed over it thinking it's TM. So now I am actually more excited that this will be a game that would appeal to me.

AridSpider2789d ago

dammit PSLS which one is it? Or did you all just pull a HHG last week for hits ¬_¬

SuperStrokey11232789d ago

@ Aridspider

They report the news... they dont make it duder. They aren't kotaku after all.

Gaffyh: "I'm from UK, so obviously I don't really like Twisted Metal"
I don't get it, how your country can affect your appreciation of a game? (it's a real question, nothing ironic, sarcastic or rhetorical)

SOAD2789d ago

If this guy spent half as much time actually working on a game instead of blogging and vlogging on the internet, it would have been released already.

Twisted Metal is a good game for the 1990's era when people didn't really think of games as being mediums of storytelling. Twisted Metal doesn't belong in this era as a full-fledged game. A PSN title, for sure, but I'd rather Jaffe and his studio concentrate more on a story-driven game, not "Mortal Kombat with cars".

UnSelf2789d ago

lol that game'll be awesome. but maybe a fusion of GOW/UC/InFamous music'll be more appreciated

gaffyh2789d ago

@Sangria - Oh don't worry about it, just a little joke from Jaffe's recent poll. He basically had one of the options as "Twisted Metal, Screw that, we hate that sh*t over here in Europe!"

But yeah, I honestly don't like Twisted Metal, but I do understand that it has a big following in North America, which is why I am bound to get so many disagrees. :)

sikbeta2789d ago (Edited 2789d ago )


Pal, what he's saying is that TM is More Popular in America than in Europe, The PS Crew don't have the same taste for everything...

VARIETY > everything else


I believe in Jaffe, The Guy Knows Best...

"If this guy spent half as much time actually working on a game instead of blogging and vlogging on the internet, it would have been released already."

Right because hes the only person the the dev team. He posts on his blog like twice a week.

pain777pas2789d ago

New IPs are always welcome but, he should give us just a little hint at what the games about. I have a megaton funny feeling though.

FACTUAL evidence2789d ago

Well sorta both. I had EXTREMELY high hopes for TM after black. I wanted to see how TM would be like on the next gen systems. At the same time I'm sort of happy, you know, like Forrest Gump says, "life is like a box of chocolates, ya never know what ya gunna get", in my case, it can be a fresh new IP that can get a huge fanbase. Gotta be diverse, and trying something new for a change isn't bad sometimes.

Kleptic2789d ago

regardless...a TM from eat sleep play is pretty much wasn't that mushroom cloud thing that gave it was the hidden message in the PS2 port of Twisted Metal: Head On that confirmed 'Twisted Metal PS3' to be coming...

that doesn't mean that it will be Eat sleep plays second game though...meaning these rumors could be true...but a TM game coming from jaffe is more than just speculation from a clown shaped explosion...

Well toward the end he said "the storie(s) we have" and Twisted Metal obviously has a bunch of stories so we could still have a shot.

But if it isn't Twisted Metal then we pretty much just got a confirmation his new game will have more than one ending.

BlackTar1872789d ago

I will be extremly sad i loved TM except 3 and 4 i think they were made by 989 studios back then but yea Black still a game i can put in and relive all the stories every couple of years.

TM was just to bad ass and the sign in the HANDS ON TM they released with the sign that said TM coming soon or to ps3 or something would push me over the edge if its not TM.

Game On fellas

BTW murder thats aawesome pic for an avatar is that Neve Campbell if so your avatar makes her look alot hotter then i remember

djfullshred2789d ago

I am thinking some of the Twisted Metal hints have been bait to guage public interest before even deciding to commit to a project like that.

-MD-2789d ago

I hope not... there's been so much stuff that points to a TM game it would annoy me to no end if it wasn't his new game.

Beast_Master2789d ago

I just hope it gets shown by E3 and then Drops in Q4.

Ps3rd-Place2789d ago

the ps3 is too [email protected] for twisted metal
itll end up on the 360 soon enough

AshleyRiot2789d ago

Hold your breath til that happens please. You'd be doing mankind a favor.

Karooo2789d ago

ps3 has 21, microsoft has 3.

first party games never go to other consoles :)

shutupandplay2789d ago

I still really hope it`s twisted metal.
