David Jaffe has provided a few updates regarding the matchmaking errors that are appearing in the recently-released playable demo of Twisted Metal.
Added a few more updates from David Jaffe
i need to try this game. it looks wicked
To save people hits, here is Jaffe's quote "aware of the matchmaking issues some of ya'll are getting- just chatted with Sony: they are on it! Will keep u informed! It SOUNDS like for the MOMENT matchmaking errors are more DEATHMATCH centric. Not 100% sure but try NUKE while team looks into it. Let me know if you have an easier time getting into a NUKE game? Thanks for your patience- we're sorry about this ya'll! Still checking on the matchmaking errors folks- stay tuned :(. ALSO: AI in normal mode of final game is NOWHERE near as hard as in demo" I hate the examiner, just the overall layout of the site, and the fact all their articles are usually 3-4 sentences long of content people care about
Just keep spamming the join button. I got disconnected in-game twice, once when I was about to launch a missile.
Cant believe u are getting so many disagrees this game is pretty epic so far !
I didn't like it. It's just not my cup of tea I guess. I didn't like the other twisted metals either. Was hoping this would change my mind.
There's a demo out? Sweet, I'll check it out soon.
the gameplay is fast, smooth and intense = love
Any word on the EU demo? Can't be arsed to make an american account.
You'll get it today when the EU store updates.
I just got in for about 2 minutes before getting kicked out.. It's awesome.. But in the retail version, are there gonna be more game types other than Nuke and deathmatch?
DM, TDM, last man standing, team last man standing, hunted, team hunted, and nuke. maybe more, those are the ones I know of.
The graphics are poor, controls flat out suck and matchmaking doesn't work properly. This game looks and plays like a £10 downloadable game. No chance in hell i'll be putting £40 down on this on release. This is the worst PS3 exclusive i have played since Haze.
Nice try troll!! Go back to playing all those great 360 exclusives,oh wait there is none!!!!!!!! LMAO
hes just butt hurt! XD
Duh. You're a troll if you don't like a game.... But anyways, I disagree. Obviously the matchmaking isn't working, most don't the first day of a beta/demo. The graphics are not "poor" but there not great either. There good, but not poor. The controls I thought felt fine. The changing of the guns is a bit annoying, but driving with square and strafing with x feels real good, but the backing up and turbo is great. IMO
Poor was probably the wrong word. It's just when you look at games like Uncharted, Killzone & God of War 3, you kind of expect more from a PS3 Exclusive. I still can't get used to the controls even after an hour.*shrugs shoulders* Perhaps Twisted Metal isn't for me.
yeah if you think the 'demo' is comparable to a 10 pound game, imagine the final version :P gonna be so worth the full price
Well that is a rather harsh and quick assumption to make. Did you try other control schemes? Racing controls seem to work very well.Also it is a demo. Matchmaking will probably be fixed by the time to releases or probably even before that. All MP games have hiccups at launch. And I think you are over exaggerating. A downloadable game? Really? If you don't like TM that is fine but I think you are very quick to judge it based on a demo.
Lmao! I own all three consoles. PS3 is my preferred console. I'm not trolling. Just saying what i think. Why is it that if you say you don't like a PS3 exclusive, you're automatically a troll/ xbox fanboy! Grow the F up dude!
No, you clearly over reactivated. Poor graphics?? Seriously?? lol sorry every game can't look pretty but Twisted Metal beats the hell out of a lot of games graphical, considering the size and destruction going on during play and the game is smooth as butter too! You do know you can change the control layout right? And they already commented on the matchmaking problems, it's a demo, sorry it's not perfect! Granted you shouldn't have gotten xbox remarks...as you have Mario in your name meaning you would be closer to a Nintendo fanboy :p
Every time I read your posts, I read it in Peter Griffin's voice and, it makes me want to punch a dolphin.
WTF, when i was installing, it got stucked at 58%?
Happened to me to just chill it will go threw!
How long you waited? it was at 58% way too long so I turn the system off.
How much hard drive space you have? If you have less than that is the issue.
I knew it wasn't my connection. Just this matchmaking error is on both DM and Nuke. Love the training mode, mastering the hell out of the cool motorcycle with a chainsaw, and if you do a wheelie you can burn it, then throw it at anything lol!!! The challenge mode is hard as burning hell lol!!! but after about 10 tries I beat it with the police truck, couldn't do it with my motorcycle. Warning!!! playing challenge mode with the motorcycle is suicide!!!! you last a 1 minute no lie man!!! If you do watch for that tow truck, just drive fast and go up somewhere and try to find health. You will get murdered and yes they will remained you that you will die. The health pack givings you alot of energy too it can come in handy.
Indeed. I've only played challenge mode and it's h-a-r-d! Too hard for a demo imho as you barely get a chance to experiment with the different control schemes and vehicles before the AI completely mauls you, lol. Probably some of Mario's frustration, as the controls are actually very tight and responsive. It's just deep. LOTS of layers to learn far as buttons and pickups. Like Warhawk. Tutorial was really good. I'm glad Jaffe says the final AI on Normal will be easier. It really is a polished, smooth, mega destructible lil' demo. Graphics are good with the emphasis on frame rate and destructability. Overall I'm happy with the aesthetic. Won about 4 rounds of challenge mode killing all 6 vehicles, but the bike really is suicide, heh. Again, a bit risky using such hardcore AI for the SP side of the demo, haven't gone online yet so that's all I've played. Hope they patch it. I'll be playing it again. The auto lock/aim assist helps keep the pace up. Love drifting through houses, machine guns blazing.
yeah i like driving through that house then jump in the pool lol!!! other cars still shoot me lol but there is a health pack in the water.
i wanna play now lol
Then what are you waiting for download and play lol!!!! my gamertag is my name.
Downloaded it from the yank store haven't played it Online yet. But the single player but has been great.
Off topic: where did the frase yank come from? My englush friends call me that( jokingly) and i know its an insult torwards americans but it just seems weird for an insult. on topic:where the game is beutifull! It also plays pretty fast paced if it wasnt for the damn vita i would get day one:)
Add an Irish man in belfast Northern Ireland calling ya it aswell then (Jokingly off course) As far as the game goes though except for not getting online with it yet due to the issues the demo is having. (Im sure hat wil be ironed out soon) Its class i was planning this for day one either way.
omg didng noticed the demo.. i need to download it nooooowwwwwww. cya :p
to all people complaining about controls, there few different control schemes. I put racer and I needed like 5 minutes before getting everything, after that it felt natural and good.
This and starhawk! Awesome games! Day one!
Does this game support split screen? That's the deal breaker for me. It looks like a fun game for a group gathering.
Up to 4 player splitscreen. :D
Deff not worth $60, 25 used at the most. Graphics look like a 1st gen PS3 and the whole game just seems rushed, game play is repetative, the helis are cheap kill noob machines. GTA does vehicle warefare better.
@ artdafoo You said "Graphics look like. 1st gen ps3(game)" I would say the best 360 game! I love my 360, but 360 games aren't as good as this.
