E3 2010: Brutal-Looking New Twisted Metal for PS3 Real After All

E3 2010: Brutal-Looking New Twisted Metal for PS3 Real After All

image

David Jaffe was lying to us all: He is working on a new Twisted Metal for the PS3, and it was announced today at E3 2010.

When David Jaffe said he "wished" he was working on a new Twisted Metal, that was just clever trickery: He wished he was, and he actually was, too.

At the Sony E3 '10 press conference, Jaffe took the stage to introduce the new iteration of the PlayStation's "longest-running series," coming in 2011 and developed by members of the original Twisted Metal team.

It's got a ton of new stuff: Helicopters, faction vs. faction gameplay (evil clowns headed by Sweet Tooth, vs dolls headed by Dollface), and it just looks brutal. It's also playable at E3, so hopefully we'll get to see it hands-on when we visit the Sony booth.

Well played, Jaffe. Well played.

Can't wait to hear what Michael Pachter is going to say about this.

Why Pach already called him out on it on the bonus round at gametrailers

OH SWEET MOTHER OF GOD YES.

This is what I wanted to hear all E3.

Sly bastard! Still...

I cannot wait. I'm considering making a time machine to go the release date.

Dear Jaffe,
Oh you...

I think my heart skipped a beat...

Now Pach's got proof.

Dr. wonderful:

And my TV went out right as the Ice Cream truck rolled on stage.

:(

Pulled wool over everyones eyes! But great to see it is been made!!!

Watching it live that commercial was amazing, I think someone in the E3 audience took the words outta my mouth "No way...wtf! YES!"

Sneaky sneaky Sony... I had thoughts of buying the new Xbox but you know how to pull me back in.

Does anyone else miss when Twisted Metal was a fun, lighthearted parody of old grindhouse flicks and not a dark, gritty story about demons duking it out in cars?
Because ever since Twisted Metal Black they really lost the point.

Seriously.
Before Black, the characters were things like Space Cops, Leprechauns, Transvestites, and Garbage Men.

Edit: And a Pizza Guy. Can't forget the Pizza Guy.

I was never in it for the cheesy story. They can do whatever they want with that as long as the multiplayer is just as fun.

I wasn't in it for the story either.
I was in it for the awesome grindhouse fun, not the "epic struggle" between a psychopathic clown and a demonic doll.

Since when did Sweet Tooth contract Insane Clown Posse?

That doesn't exactly make sense. Are you saying you could feel the dark, gritty atmosphere in the gameplay of Twisted Metal Black?

Because I sure as hell couldn't while driving an ice cream truck that shoots balls of pink fire.

Very tempting to get a PS3 for this.

I do miss Twisted Metal.

I approve of this news and will celebrate it by jumping around the room for 14 seconds while yelling: "YES! YES! OH GOD YES!"

Final-damn-ly

When they drove the Icecream truck on the stage with a fatass playing as Sweet Tooth, it became an instant buy for me.

"It's good to be back."

yesssssssssssssssssssssssssss!
the best moment of e3 was that announcement and when they drove a truck on stage!
that full of win.

*cries*
wow... its great to see the game back in action... its great... really
i'll just sit over here... alone... not being able to play it...

ZOMG! *faints*

I'm so excited!! mUAHAHAHAHA, I can't wait to run over a motha f*cka!

Aw, the glory days. Back when TM was on the PS1, and I was playing as Axel in the second and fourth games. Really brings back memories. And now, we hear about a new one in the works, and I almost faint from happiness.

At the risk of sounding immature:

I just **** myself.

He didn't lie at least. Just chose his words carefully. I love such people!

I know this is going to sound like I'm part of the myspace crowd, but I'm hoping there will be some degree of customization allowed (possibly allowed to build your own car? That'd be fucking sweet).

Great, now I'm feeling nostalgic for the times when PSone games felt like pure goddamn magic.

Just read all the details on IGN and Gamespot, this game is going to be [email protected] RIDICULOUS

Screw this, I'm not mooching off my friend's PS3, I'll get my own for my house to raise some hell with my brothers and friends

God fucking damn.

These people really want me to buy a PS3 now. It's like they're doing personal marketing now.

So Im not the only one!
But...if this one actually is fun like 2 was....well...then I officially actually WANT a PS3.

God damn I need a PS3! The list of awesome games in the catalogue just keeps building...

Hopefully the Pal release won't experience ridiculously heavy censors like Black did.

I know the focus is on the car action, but stripping away the cutscenes removes the soul of the game.
