123w ago - Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder David Jaffe has shared a release update today for Twisted Metal PS3 fans, as follows:
David Jaffe here with some good news and bad news on behalf of myself, my Eat Sleep Play partner and Twisted Metal co-director Scott Campbell, the entire Eat Sleep Play team, and Sony Santa Monica.
First the good news: Eat Sleep Play and Sony Santa Monica are cranking like mad to get a fantastic Twisted Metal build ready for both Gamescom and PAX Prime! For those not in the know:
Gamescom is August 17th-21st in Cologne, Germany and PAX Prime will take place here in America August 26th-28th in Seattle, Washington.
Both shows are open to the public but PAX - I believe- is already sold out. If you've got PAX Prime tickets, I can't wait to see you there! I hope you'll swing by the Twisted Metal booth and give our game a try!
At Gamescom and PAX we'll be showing off a brand new level called Thrills & Spills Amusement Park! It's one of our favorite all time Twisted Metal levels and it's filled with the over the top destruction, strategic level choices, and twisted humor that fans of the series have come to love and expect.
Players at both shows will also get hands on with TEAM HUNTED, a brand...
130w ago - Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder David Jaffe has posted up a new Twisted Metal Iron Maiden PS3 demo today and shared details on their Comic-Con 2011 plans.
To quote: I get into a little about the character stories as well as talk about gameplay balance and the pros and cons between the game's 15+ vehicles.
I also gab a bit about the reveal of Iron Maiden, the biggest and most complicated boss we've ever had in a Twisted Metal game!
E3 was a blast this year! It was really cool to connect with fans at the booth while they went tried out Twisted Metal's signature Nuke mode. It was also fun showing off our newest level: New York City during the holiday season.
The very first Twisted Metal game - released back in 1995! - takes place at Christmas time as well and I guess we wanted to pay a little homage. Also, I just love the idea of chaos and destruction centered around what is usually one of the happiest, warmest, most fun times of the year! Does that make me bad?!? So check out the video- hope you dig it!
And next up is Comic-Con in San Diego July 21-24 so hope to see ya'll there. Thank you again for the support, thanks so much for stopping by to play our game and say 'hey' at the show, and please stay tuned...
131w ago - Today Eat Sleep Play Co-Founder David Jaffe has posted up some E3 2011 videos of Iron Maiden and NYC Chaos in Twisted Metal on PS3.
To quote: Totally jazzed about the new gameplay we'll be showing at this week's E3!
We're giving the press their first ever detailed look at Iron Maiden, the biggest and most complicated boss we've ever had in a Twisted Metal game! She's from the game's campaign mode (single player and local/online co-op supported) and she's a total blast to battle!
We're also giving show goers some hands on with Twisted Metal's signature Nuke mode, our Twisted take on Capture The Flag. E3′s Nuke demo takes place in a brand new level: NEW YORK CITY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON! The level is classic Twisted Metal, allowing players to bring destruction and chaos to a relatable location!
This isn't a fight on a space station or in some foreign war. This is hell in your own backyard! Destroy skyscrapers! Bring down The Statue of Liberty, then play soccer with her head! Battle inside toy stores! Race under the streets of the city, fighting and chasing on underground subway tracks as you try to avoid being smashed by the deadly trains!
Plow into the history museum and smash giant dinosaur bones,...
134w ago - Today Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a video featuring hands-on with Twisted Metal PS3 Multiplayer and David Jaffe.
To quote: After Twisted Metal made its bombastic debut nearly a year ago at the E3 PlayStation press conference, developer Eat Sleep Play promptly descended into a self-imposed near-silence.
Now that Twisted Metal has finally emerged from its shadowy confines – headlights gleaming like accusing eyes, an angry puff of steam boiling from its cracked radiator grille – it's clear that David Jaffe, Scott Campbell and the boys have been busy. Really busy.
Even in its early pre-release state, the PS3 rebirth of PlayStation's longest-running series plays true to form – it's fast, ferocious, and fun. Underneath the glistening new HD graphics, blistering frame rate and overhauled combat system lies the vehicular equivalent of Mortal Kombat... that is, if Mortal Kombat included 16-player online battles waged with helicopters and nukes and psychotic clowns driving semi trucks and God knows what else.
Twisted Metal Creative Director David Jaffe is fond of comparing the game's combat feel to that of fighter jets. The comparison is apt...
