David Jaffe addresses fan concerns over Twisted Metal PS3's exclusion of any of the series' familiar characters.
It's Twisted Metal, it can't be bad.
Not necessarily. Games can be good or bad. But David Jaffe is too good to mess this up.
The only real complaint I have about it is the T rating. Honestly, it's enough to put me off from buying it. I loved Twisted Metal Black for how mature it was and now they're aiming this one at kids? Sorry Jaffe, but you can go fuck yourself.
Which is why Black was the first and only TM ti get an M rating while the rest of the series was T. Good job.
Jaffe said that while Black was the best rated TM game in the series, the M rating made it the least sold out of the series as well...that was the main reason behind the T rating, they want as many players to be able to enjoy the game, especially online because he loves Team Play and strategy between gamers...and another thing is, if you saw the video at Comic Con, the live action pieces looked really dark, plus Sweet Tooth still looks menacing...i like the look of it, i cant wait for 2011
I agree with Ghost of Sparta about this games T rated goal. TM Black was the best Twisted Metal ever critically and in my opinion. It's been years since TM Black came out and those who grew up on TM...GREW UP! So you have to wonder who this game is being made for: fans or a new age of gamers? I'd rather have an M rated Twisted Metal than some bright colored T rated TM. I mean you take the highest critically acclaimed TM game and completely go in the opposite direction so the game can sell more copies? Blow to the fans. Or me at least. As Ghost said; Jaffe can go fuck himself....if this is even Jaffe's idea to make it Teen. Maybe it's sony's.
Twisted Metal 2 had T Rating and is the best Twisted Metal ever made...
Like Schmotz said, every entry in the series but Black was rated T. I think everyone who "grew up playing TM" was playing it years before Black came along. Everyone I know ranks TM2 as the best in the series.
As much as I played it, Twisted Metal III definitely was the worst of the series.
3 and 4 are hated so much, but I love them! and black, and head on, and hopefully this too!
LOl..You obviously never played Twisted Metal III Shubhankar. But Jaffe wasnt involved in it.
Many of them seem to really be "in tune" to their fans. Maybe it just seems that way, but it's something that seems noticeable.
You call making me wait almost a DECADE for another installment of metal mashing mayhem, being "in tune with their fans"?
But keep in mind, I said the DEVELOPERS Sony Employs seem to be "in tune"....not necessarily Sony themselves. For all intents and purposes, Sony is just the "pimp", in a manner of speaking. However, Sony's women are very hot and caring....so Sony really knows how to pick em. lol
lol.I'll give you that
so is this still like, a $59.99 title? The more this guy reveals information about this game the more it seems like this could and probably should be just a downloadable $39.99 game at most.
1. 3 stories with multiple ending for each one(more then every game except heavy rain this gen) 2. 2 to 4 player split screen on and offline 3. 16 player online with lots of game modes that is more then you get with most games but i guess when you don't know what you're talking about it is hard to miss.
yea u see that alot on here when it comes to ps3 games
get em boys
me thing people nag too much. He was so excited to talk about the game during his panel, I'm sure this game will be great.
Concerns? This game has Split-screen online. My concerns have been dealt with.
This whole communication with developers and fans are getting out of hand. Let the developers make their game. If anyone know what they are doing it's them and not necessarily the fan base. I'm sure fans got a bunch of bright and very good ideas but it's not your job in the end to implement those ideas and make the game. It's hard to be a fan and not express concerns and thoughts on upcoming titles, but in this particular scenario, it's Jaffe who's making the game. Do you really need to come with a bunch of concerns at all? Developers learn a lot more from their previous games rather than the people playing the games. If he says it's gonna be the best TM ever made I believe simply believe his word and stop "expressing to much concern". And for the haters, that's NOT being ignorant, it's having faith in the developers.
Everyone said they hated 4.. I liked it.. For the simple reason you could make your TM Car.. and go against the TM family of cars.. Im super surprised.. In the day of customizable games and levels and unlockables.. Also with Blu Rays memory capacity.. How TM or another car combat game hasnt came out with build your own car and create your own special.. For example.. You can have a lamborgini front end.. with a truck camper shell back end.. You pic color, wheels etc.. and each piece has a weight and armor point to it.. Then you can create your own special.. Ex. Projectile, blunt etc.. fire, ice or whatever.. Then you start the game and you start at level one.. and as you go through the game and online you get points to add your attributes.. armor speed special power.. and you go from there.. That would be the shet
I'm no expert on the TM series. I played TM2 and TMB and hated them both. I can't see this being the mega blockbuster you all are building it up to be. I remember the controls being very stiff and every vehicle controlling as if they were tanks. It's been years so I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure not only did the graphics suffer from lack of detail, the controls suffered too. You all are talking about story this and that but I never really got into the story. I don't think people played this for the story to be honest. And if you say you do you're lying. This game will probably tank, guys. Just being honest. Out of all the games Sony "could" have announced or "could" have tossed money at this one wasn't on my list of must haves. Eightdays The Getaway Legend Of Dragoon Tomba Jersey Devil Syphon Filter Medievil Are just some of the games I'd be more interested in seeing Sony toss money at or bring back. Not Twisted Metal.
twisted metal is gonna sell like hotcakes when it comes out..
Well, TM games were never about acurate vehicle physics. They were actually quite laughable in TMII/Black, but strangely I loved the controls. The simplistic graphics made making out the enemy from pretty backgrounds easier when your barrelling all over the place. Im curious why Sony didnt have a Twisted Metal game for the PS3 YEARS ago.
sorry but I have to disagree with you. The only game on your list that comes close would be the Legend of Dragoon. I still play TM Black a few hours a week and have been dying for a new TM to play which is why I disagreed with you.
It is not intended to be a mega blockbuster. It will be successful with it's fans for the smaller budget game that it is.
You PS3 fanboys worship Jaffe like he's some kind of god. Here's the irnony: you all praised God of War 3 eventough Jaffe had nothing to do with it. Yet you all talk bad about MGS: Rising because Kojima has nothing to do with it. Hypocrisy much? At skeptical troll: you're an idiot, re-read my post.
SONY fanboys didnt praise Jaffe for GOW3... trolls really like to pull sh1.t out of their asses.
Uhh... I'm pretty sure many praised GOW 3 because it was developed by SONY SANTA MONICA. You know... the same studio that developed ALL three games and the studio that ps3 fans are still praising? Hurr.
Actually, people didn't have much faith in Rising, because Kojima publicly distanced himself from the game, while Jaffe had nothing but good things to say about GOW3. Also, a precedent had already been set with GOW2, which was a great game. Having said that, the absence of Jaffe did have fans worried before the release of GOW2, so your imagined hypocrisy is just that: imagined. I am now hitting the disagree button, as you are both off topic and abusive. On topic: I think it's great that Jaffe constantly communicates with his fans. It's good to know a developer is listening.
I think the 3 main characters idea is LAME. Bring back person/car combos.
I was 100% happy with everything they were doing until they said there was only three story lines. Granted its one per difficulty per driver. I still liked the variation in the stories. I dont think its enough to put me off of buying it however. It still looks badass to play.
I thought it was four? Regardless, I'll reserve judgment until more is shown of the game. What I can say at this point is that I'm optimistic about the fact that Jaffe is taking a chance and mixing things up a bit. I'd rather he be inspired by new ideas, rather than running through the motions. I think he has that right and I trust that the game will turn out great.
I dont know. If the number of characters were sacrificed for a more varied campaign and an increase in the number of bosses, then you can count me on board. Of course, I would love to see some more TM characters, but since there is only 3 it seems like they are getting more detail....And I personally LOVE that characters can go on different cars...its super badass imo.
mainly stills with voiceovers, I wouldn't mind.
to everyone b!tching about the characters you do realise that this TM is almost no different from past TMs? in the past you had lots of cars to choose from but they only had 1 cutscene at the end so you couldn't be that attached to the characters. in this one you have 3 characters with 16 car choices so you can pick from multiple cars just like you did in the past only now the story has more depth. also to all the idiots complainning about the rating do some research every TM but one was rated T. the game is about cars geniuses so there won't be really any difference in the level of gore the only difference will be with swearing. people need to just stfu you cry about him not annoucing the game then do nothing but b!tch when he does. i feel bad for jaffe having such a bunch of ungreatful retards for fans. he is the man making classic franchises not you clowns so shut up and let him do what he does best.
Twisted metal 2 is a classic and was dark even with t rateing. You trolls need to stop trolling. WHen you ask people whats the best twisted metal they will all say twisted metal 2 because they all played its amazingness. It sold more as well.
Some pretty funny comments here. Infamous had a T rating Uncharted had a T rating Heck, LittleBigPlanet, had an "E" rating. Are you gonna skip these games because they aren't "Mature enough" for you?
Gumgum is 100% correct. Games that don't have a M rating doesn't mean they are bad by any means.
I don't know where people get this idea that just because a game has the rating M slapped on the box it's automatically mature. Sure it my have mature content like profanity, sex, extreme violence and the whole nine yards, but that doesn't always equal maturity. Anyone remember Conkers: Bad Fur Day? The game had some of the most crude and vulgar content in. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely a fun game, but I never considered anything about that game "mature". So yea, on topic, I have faith in this new TM. It looks promising and I've never played a game from Jaffe I've been disappointed in, including Calling All Cars.
"F*ck that guy for not making a mature game. You hear me? I want f*cking mature ratings, because I am mature!" LOL. j/k It is funny that people that complain about T ratings sound like they are not old enough to buy MA games.
I read the blog 3 days ago. This is one of sony's biggest franchises why would this be a psn game? How will this be aimed at kids this isn't TM small brawl but it's not black either. This game will be what jaffe had in mind with the first Twisted Metal but couldn't do with the ps1.
