Jaffe via the NeoGaf message boards on his latest title: This is probably the most fun I've had designing a game and I think it represents some of the best work we've [Eat Sleep Play] ever done. I think this will be the best Twisted Metal ever, better than Tm2.
If I came off as not excited it was because I was crazy hung over and tired during the presentation. I was up till 2am the night before in the hotel bar hanging with Sony marketing, the Eat Sleep Play team, and others. Also I was very upset because the demo had lots of tech glitches that may not have been evident in the video but for me they really pissed me off cause if we had had more time to rehearse the demo we could have worked around them...
...So yeah, no: I am crazy in love with this game and love that that video- glitchy as it was"
And there you have it, Jaffe defending his game at the wee hours of the morning.
