David Jaffe has explained how he lied about the existence of a PS3 Twisted Metal game in order to preserve "an actual genuine E3 surprise".
Its called necessary evil. Just like bombing on civilian when the allied had to liberate europe since there was no way around it.
Yeah, and we don't do that anymore against terrorist. It's better they kill us, otherwise it is inhuman! The atrocity of an advanced society!
@IdleLeeSiuLung Lets see how you react when your family member looses live in collateral damage. Child, before you write/speak put your self in their shoe.
So to kill terrorists that killed civilians you kill civilians .... hmmmm and in return they will hate you more and therefore create more terrorists that are sworn to get back at you !!! awsome logic ... lets turn into a twisted metal game coz this is very twisted for my taste
My parents lived during the Vietnam war and they talked about how the communist oppressed the people (and they still do today) so I'm intimately familiar with this. My parents escaped Vietnam many moons ago. We almost always hold modern society to higher standards, but yet we never acknowledge that military personal is no different than civilians. A life lost is a life lost regardless of it being civilians or military personnel.... I would argue that if we stop them in their tracks and take no chances, the terrorist will stop using civilians as human meat shields and fewer civilians will die. When you go to war collateral damage is expected and when your enemy is using that against you, you have no option but defend yourself. Yet, when we do we get hanged out in public for it. @the matrix said: "Lets see how you react when your family member looses live in collateral damage. Child, before you write/speak put your self in their shoe." Well I did loose family members during the Vietnam war, I just didn't know them. In fact, I would argue stop putting yourself in others shoes and think logically. If you put yourself in others shoes you might get emotional and might choose options that aren't the best. After all, why won't anyone think of the children and ban video games!!! @zahdab No, I'm saying kill the terrorist accept that there will be collateral damage and fewer civilians will be killed. Don't target civilians!
what the hell is wrong with you two? this is nothing like a war or anything important. it is at best like a parent not telling their kid what they got them for chrimas. can we please just stay on the topic of the game.
At all those above trying to sound "Deep" Then maddhatter hits the nail on the head with a christmas present analogy
Twisted metal is gonna kick @$$
he is not going off-topic, hes talking about twisted metal. maybe your just crying inside that you cant play it OK
I have a PS3. Maybe you're just defending your alternate account. It must tear you up inside to know that there's nothing you can hold over my head. I have 31 PS3 games and 6 PSN games. And all you have is an N4G account and too much time on your hands.
And no console to play with. Just dreams of a ps3
can't wait for this game too bad xbots that did have a PS1/PS2 twisted metal game, PS3 version FTW.
all along was 'no comment'...he didn't have to lie. He is a media whore.
i guess that is why he lied to the media to keep his game from them? i'm sure he could of got more attention for revealing the game so your theory is a little a flawed.
He FORCED the media to ask questions they knew he couldn't answer. Who here was slightly surprised at twisted metal E3? I was and that's a good thing. Oh no a guy we don't know lied to us...
Saying "no comment" would derive in more of the same question and would imply that the game exist
He didn't have to lie to anyone. All he had to do was keep his fat mouth shut like he said he would for a few months. The dude is an attention whore. He'll do anything to get attention like he is doing right now. Apologizing to get attention. He didn't have to do interviews and appearances on shows or do his dumb blog. What he should be doing is working on the f-ing game. But he can't stop himself.
He would of been contractually obliged to not say anything, the old "does not comment on...." wouldnt of worked with Jaffe.
I really don't mind that he lied about the game not existing. The surprise at E3 totally justified it and the way we were surprised with it was awesome!
He still didn't manage to keep anything secret. Even Patcher ratted him out a few days prior to E3. I fully understand the angle that he was coming form and the impact he wanted to make. Personally I think it would have been more exciting if had said "Yeah TM is coming and come E3 your mind=blown, don't miss it." Something along those lines.
It's going to be epic. Because its twisted metal, man...twisted metal got me into gaming basically, its what gaming was and gaming should always be, about the game, not it's looks or newest "gimmick integration". twisted metal is one of those games you can't ever forget, it's one of those games you play with your buddies at night with a few cold ones and non stop laughs and thrills
He shouldn't feel bad at all sometimes you have to lie to keep a surprise. Honestly Twisted Metal and Portal 2 were the only thing that surprised me at E3 everything else the I already knew was going to be shown, so him lying made me very happy along with a lot of other gamers I'm sure.
I expected a new IP. :( Thanks for getting my hopes up scrub. Ha.
Oh I'd laugh so hard if someone was actually insulted that Jaffe lied about Twisted Metal on the PS3 to keep it secret. Still, would of been hilarious when the trailer was unveiled at E3, some die hard TW fan in a Sweet Tooth t-shirt stands up screaming "YOU LIED TO ME, JAFFE! YOU LIED TO ME!" and ran out the conference bawling his eyes out. But seriously, good on Jaffe, it was a nice and welcomed surprised at E3.
I would've loved for the actor as Sweet Tooth to go batshit and dismember the audience, how's that for promotion for the game huh? To have a real life Sweet Tooth, damn, that's hot shit. I mean yeah it's awful, but every single Twisted Metal fan, in the pit of their darkest souls, would find it bastard awesome to have a real life Sweet Tooth. BTW in case you were wondering, yes, I loved Toy Story 3.
What does it matter now? We were surprised, we all are glad you were making it after all, we understand you were misleading us for a reason. Just make it epic and all is forgiven.
Did he actually lie? Maybe he eventually did, but for a while there, every day in new N4G articles he was creatively dodging questions left and right. I may not remember correctly, but at one point in an interview a little while ago, I thought I read him saying that the game he was working on may be a car combat game, but "may or may not be" called "Twisted Metal". To me that was the giveaway, cause if it WASN'T Twisted Metal, they would only be sabotaging their own game by squandering the legacy of the franchise identity and of the classic characters; Sweet Tooth etc. Jaffe still did a good job overall though. Things remained uncertain all the way up until the moment of the E3 presentation. Not easy to do that nowadays, since it seems like more and more people are constantly leaking inside info. Maybe alot of those leaks are intentional, but still.
I'm glad it was a surprise. It was the only good thing out of E3 for the most part.
murder loves twisted metal me too it's awesome.
thats who you are you fucking shit!
