Damn: Twisted Metal delayed to early 2012 photo
Damn: Twisted Metal delayed to early 2012
by Dale North

David Jaffe says that they're going to miss the date of October 4, and that Twisted Metal has to be pushed back. They need time to polish the title, he says.

"Thing is, you gotta trust me when I tell you that – with this extra time for tuning and polish – the game is going to be so much better than it already is." 

From this fall to early next year is a long-ass delay for polish and tuning, wouldn't you say? Still, Jaffe puts it nicely so you can appreciate that he's doing it for you. I believe him.

"Most importantly, we plan on treating you – the kind folks who play our game (and pay our bills) – like the VIPs that you are," Jaffe wrote on the PS Blog. "You only deserve our best and we appreciate your understanding as we take a little more time to guarantee that our best is what we deliver."

Judging from the times I've played it this year game is already rockin', so I trust they are doing something really important with this extra time. If that 3 or more months is truly polish time, this is going to be the shiniest game ever made.

There is some good news, though: Twisted Metal will be playable at both PAX Prime and Gamescom 2011.They be showing off a brand new level called Thrills & Spills Amusement Park, and new mode Team Hunted will also be debuted. Bonus: there will also be some free Sweet Tooth masks given away.

Oh, you're not ready for Twisted Metal. You think you are, but you're not. You may think that you're prepared, being a fan of this PlayStation and PS2 predecessors, but you're not even close to being prepared. This game is insane. There's a million things happening at once, a million bullets flying your way, and million ways to die. It's pure chaos, but it works. It works beautifully. 

David Jaffe and his people at Eat Sleep Play have been crafting a game so wild that no existing genre type fits it. It's sure as hell not a racer -- you'd be blown up before you could make it through a single lap in this world. 'Shooter' gets closer, but that doesn't really give the game enough credit, as Twisted Metal feels deeper than the modern shooter.

Jaffe says it's something like a fighting game, and I think that's a good fit. It's a fighting game where you move really fast, and where the weapons are key. It's a game that embraces competition wholly. It's pure competitive chaos on a disc.

Jaffe loves PS3 exclusivity more than audience expansion

Twisted Metal won't be coming to the Xbox 360. Obviously not, since Sony owns the game's license. Still, even if creator David Jaffe could put it on the 360, he apparently would not. According to the developer, giving the PS3...

Eat Sleep Play's upcoming PlayStation 3 Twisted Metal title is sure to go down as one of the worst-kept secrets in gaming. Since the studio's formation back in 2007, rumors have swirled that the company was hard at work on a brand-new iteration of the series for the PS3.

Despite the persistent chatter, co-founder David Jaffe and company had denied its existence for years. The outspoken Jaffe took a clever approach, mastering the art of misdirection with public statements like, "I wish we were making Twisted Metal!" Turns out, they were.

At this year's E3, Sony closed its press conference with a dramatic Twisted Metal reveal, rolling an ice cream truck on to the stage, driven by a costumed Sweet Tooth character. We got a behind-closed-doors look at one of the game's new multiplayer game types, "Nuke," as well as handful of the game's new character vehicles. If you've been waiting for a game that lets you use a hospital patient strapped to a gurney as a weapon, keep reading.
