Eat Sleep Play’s David Jaffe clarifies some of the Twisted Metal’s single player campaign details that were revealed at Comic-Con 2010.
Can't wait for this game, i have so many great memories attached to this series, *Played It with my Brother* all the time, Guess we're up for another round. =]
cant see em passing up on making some killer dlc for this if it sells half as well as i hope.
David Jaffe is the man!
Hell yeah. I wonder how much this game is going to improve from its first showing to when it finally releases.
Tell me if I got this right we get to play as only 3 characters but we can play in 16 different cars of other characters and each car will get their own story and ending and we get a different ending when playing in different difficulties, also we get different level when playing with different characters is not going to be death match all the time there will be challenges and different things and there will be more bosses than in any other TM game, did I get it right????
no u wont get a different ending based on what car you pick. as said there are 9 different endings based on playing either 3 characters at the 3 different difficulty levels. so for each character there is 3 different endings. but everything else u said is right
Only 3 stories, not every car has a different story but different ending with different difficulties.
preacher, sweet tooth, doll face, and grimm. I don't like the sound of this, Jaffe's just changing the game to much,its nothing like the rest of the series, I mean I was fine with the online (except the helicopter), as long as he kept the offline original, but then he had to change it to instead of 16 endings and stories he made 12. So I don't know if I even know if I want the new TM any more, for some reason I think the new TMs gonna be a fail because there changing it up to much so I doubt old TM fans (like me) are even gonna like!
let that guy try some new stuff and stfu.or if everyone acted like. u we would be using some old ass tech.
thanks for the clarification! with all the awesome thing that is coming from this game ( local coop, multiplayer splitscreen offline and online, story mode revamped) this game is going to be EPIC!
Only 3 characters???? That's freakin' dumb.
I kind of agree with you there. There are so many great characters in the TM universe, why focus on just 3. I guess (hope) Jaffe knows what he's doing though.
3 characters and only 16 cars? only 16? starting to wonder what kind of game this is turning out to be. Hopefully not a $60 one
The lack of characters is debatable, but what do you mean 'only' 16 cars? And $60 is standard price. Why would you expect anything different?
I'm starting to wonder why I can't see the future and why I'm the ONLY one who remembers the past. You remember all the articles about Jaffe being a liar... you know and having a go at him I don't remember hearing you play the full singleplayer, how is it? Oh wait that's right you didn't
At first I thought he said there are only three characters but they can drive all of the 16 cars and each have 9 endings based on the difficulty you pick, but now I'm thinking hes saying each car has a character with a ending, although Sweet Tooth, Mr.Grimm and Doll Face each have 3 endings based on the difficulty and can drive any of the sixteen cars.
You got it right the first time.
Hugely disappointed that poetry much all characters are GONE. Why in the hell would they think this is a good idea. I love the hell out of Twisted Metal, it's the reason I got a Playstation instead of Saturn, but this is crazy. Yea yea I know multiplayer is fun n all that, but the personalities and variety, as well as connection with the characters has always been a staple of the series too. I think this is just silly. And I'm really scared for the live action scenes.
Well it allows for better stories that are more focused and indepth.
i'm sure some people will try and make this into a bigger thing then it really is just remember that most games you play as one character with one ending. you get to play as 3 characters with their own stories and multiple endings with each character. so before you 360 fanboys come in here and make yourselves look stupid(too late for blaze) just know that this is more then halo 3 and gears 2 give you combined.
3? only three? what the hell man! thats one of the reasons i love twisted metal there were a variety of characters i loved choosing from axel,roadkill, preacher,dark tooth,minion,mr.grimm.sweet tooth,doll face,bloody mary, preacher, manslaughter,warhog,darkside, spectre,grasshopper,outlaw,cra z y 8,no face, all these characters you could choose from & see their twisted stories why were they like this? who were they before their lives were destroyed? the characters are important to the twisted metal franchise is seeing these cool whacky characters and the dark humor i mean i wanted to see axel in this game or minion even bloody mary (she's one of my favorites btw) now jaffe is just putting only 3 characters in the story campaign? in the wise words of kevin butler COME ON! it's cool you have live action cut-scenes but only three characters? i mean where in hell is roadkill? yellow jacket? bloody mary? i'am really dissapointed. edit: disagrees really? i love twisted metal no doubt about it but to only have three characters in the single player story? thats lame.
Apparently, we're making this bigger than it really is or we're 360 fanboys /:. I agree with you 100% though.
You people should look at yourselves in third person and realize how F'ing retarded most of you sound.
It still doesn't seem like there will be as much stories involved. It doesn't make since to be playing as sweet tooth but driving axel's car. The game mechanics were fine the way they were. I wish Jaffe would save all the new shit for the online portion and leave the single player the way it was.
I played TM back in the day and it was fun but I don't see how racing games (any racing game) is worth 60 bucks at this point. TM doesn't seem like a full budget title to me.....I'm sure not everything has been announced either
Don't you dare call Twisted Metal a racing game. If any game is worth $60 it's this one.
well it's in cars....I get that it's not solely a racing game but you get my point....I'm just not seeing the 60 dollar value here. I want to play it badly but I'll have to hope a friend gets it because I'm not paying 60 unless Jaffe announces something insane....and it is Jaffe so it's a possibility
Twisted Metal is in NO WAY a racing game. Where is the racing element? there is no start/finish line! Twisted Metal is a Vehicle COMBAT game. back on subject. Im not really feeling this new style of twisted metal. I know what Jaffe does will be very fun, but i still want all the characters i loved from previous Twisted Metals. The characters were definately one of the main appeals to me and im sure im not the only one. I hope Jaffe reads all of the disappointed opinions of the fans of the series and consider doing it differently.
Sweet Tooth, Minion and Darkside
Ok that may sound bad BUT keep in mind...this has ONLINE MULTIPLAYER....which from what ive seen. looks freakin amazing
Sweet tooth mr. grim doll face so if they are the only 3 story campaign characters each one haves 3 different endings for each difficulty thats stupid if so. Rather than choose from 16 or 9 different characters and each 9 characters have 3 different endings in each difficulty.
16 cars in the game and only 3 characters to chose from?? Why couldn't these guys put a character in each of those cars? This is ridiculous. Sacrificing single player for the multi-player. Ridiculous. I am a huge fan of TM. I've always like the diversity in the characters in the games and their stories. If they off different characters down the road via DLC, that will be BS. I don't know what Jaffe is up to but, for his sake, I hope it works out.
How long did it take you to play through Modern Warfare 2 campaign? how many characters did you played? 3 Focus characters is enough for storyline. Most ppl will blast through the storyline (and i am sure it will take you more than the 6 hour modern warfare single player), then you will jump online. think about it, it's the amount of quality time spent that matters not how many playable characters. If the game is shit, it doesn't matter if you get to play all of it, because it won't be fun.
If you were as much of a Twisted Metal fan as me you would understand. I wanted a Twisted Metal on ps3 so bad mainly to see how they do single player with the ps3 and I also wanted to see it have online multiplayer but only as an added bonus not the main course. Hopefully Jaffe is lying about only 3 playable characters like he lied about eat,sleep,play working on Twisted Metal.
you will come across many different characters. It is obvious for budget and time reason they cannot put in every single characters and make live action movies for all of them. I still think 3 well designed campaigns are better than 15 different storyline that makes u play the same levels again and again.
I usually just played through with a few different cars and watched the rest of the end movies on youtube or something and spent most of the time playing split screen deathmatch. yea those were some good times. I still want to see more story on darkside, hammerhead, roadkill, spectre, axel with the ps3 engine would be amazing. I'm actually getting less excited about this as more info is released. never the less this game will be amazing and will be a first day purchase for me.
Twisted metal never had stories. Just the ending cinematic when you win with that character. To me it seems like theres going to be a story mode that has a full story after every match for 3 characters. There will be twisted metal classic mode that will basically be the mode where you can play as any car and after beating every level they give you an ending for whatever character of the 16 players you won with. Theres is then tons of online mods like death match, coop, team deathmatch, etc. Im sorry but people this is way more then any other twisted metal game.
don't bother people just like to complain for the sake of it. this is the infamous sitituation all over again. people are acting like they care about something that they really don't care about simple because it is different. no matter what jaffe would of said they would find something to cry about that is what gamers do.
Gotdammit.. Not liking the sound of this:( Will wait though *fingers crossed*;)
Damnit only 3 characters, all i have to say is this game better have some Dlc with other characters. It might just be the nostalgia talking but i want more of a variety.
