As long as you are truly satisfied with want you created and someone enjoys your game, F*&^% want any one think.

you are so insecure. hilarious.

Det. Conan said...

David,

A quick question relating to your profession.

Now when you design a game do you (as a game designer) intend to create a game as addicting as it can get?

you mentioned earlier that R&C got the "pull" factor more than Uncharted, where the game pulls you to play more and more (and can't get enough of it)..

Do you guys (game designers) always intend to make games where gamers sit there for hours and hours playing continuously (e.g. Oblivion, MGS, GOW)? or do you do it in such a way where the gamers stop say after a certain stage and commence the game the following day (to keep the taste of the game, its value and experience alive as much as possible)?

This doesn't have much to do with the video but I read your post on the PS Blog and I'm amazed at the price of the new Twisted Metal. I think I would have bet money that it would have been $30 bucks. After reading about all the stuff contained in there I can't believe Sony is letting it go that cheap. Can't wait for the live action movies, if they are anything like the other early live action cutscenes from the old PSone games they should be good for a laugh :)

Nikko said...

Please honor us with insight! I want to know your next ps3 game, give us a clue!!!

btw: one day i played TM:black till i puked.

Caleb said...

TM:Black was a good game...so EFF that guy...

A game is a game....it isn't reality...I play games to take me away from shitty reality and my shitty job shitty etc....

lightweaponx said...

Sometimes its good to just let loose on some people who deserve it. That guy probably really is a cocksucker too. Jaffman I love (most) of your games and I can't wait to pick up TM:HO:ETE!

Owen said...

Camo and assorted other ingrates can keep their Halo, and other crappy FPS games. Me, I'll stick with games like Twisted Metal that contain an actually interesting story, great level and character design, and lasting appeal. I doubt anyone plays the Halo 3 campaign several times over. I could barely even stand to play through it on co-op once.

Are you releasing more gameplay footage today? or mayb tuesday?

PM said...

pretty funny shit. im lovin these video blogs.

i cant believe that some dude said that TM should have been left at one game, TM2 and TM:Black were the best ones. A world without these 2 games is a world i dont not want to live in!!!!!!!

but in all seriousness, like everyone said, you cant expect everyone to like every game.

Anonymous said...

It was most likely a forum troll the only reason someone wouldnt like the game is if they A. never played it or B. only played tm3 or tm4

otherwise they wouldnt of bothered postn it

derrickgott007 said...

Ah man! It goes silent right when you start to rant..lol

These video blogs are pretty cool...Keep em up!

Rey said...

I well Enter Twisted Metal and Tie Mr. Camo to the front of my car. :)

Sadeq said...

nice video, had a good laugh, as alway

looking forward to TM & more to your PS3 title

ph said...

i am unbelievably excited for the new tm, with twisted metal being my favorite franchise aside from MAYBE God of war and final fantasy and i actually have 2 copies of this game reserved. one to keep wrapped forever and one to play the shit out of, however i have a question or two you might be sick of hearing. A) are you aware of how backwards compatible with the ps3 this game will be, and B) is there online play:? i have a 60 gig and the original head on had online so i'm not too worried, but reassurance is always nice. Thanks

NewYork214 said...

hahah that wasnt the funniest shit ever lol. fuck you mr.camo. that should be added into the game as a bonus feature lol.

Tapion440 said...

Ok, I just can't keep this to me anymore Jaffe, sorry, everyone needs to know...

Twisted Metal 5 is what he's working on...there, I said it...

Owen said...

I dont know how you would be a source on it, but it seemed kind of obvious, as he mocked MrCamo that they were making it just for him.

sin said...

I know what it is... it's... it's... Words and Arrows!

godofpeace said...

Next time a little bit closer to the whiteboard please :D

Mundinator said...

David...you gotta get this camera fixed. It cut out the audio right when the ranting was supposed to start.

Gratz on bringing the camera to a meeting. :) Fun idea for sure...

This post is sort of going off of your last 2 posts regarding the "internet effect" where people are very aggressive or negative. I think it all has to do with the anonymous nature of the internet. In real life, most people can't express everything they feel. They have a certain standard that they have to uphold.

The internet is an entirely different beast. I think a big part of it is that most people see the text and screenames as just that, text and screenames. There is this disconnect between the person behind the name and the name itself. With that, people do not feel as restricted as they do in their real life. That, I think, is the reason for the internet negativity and agression that is oh so common.

Oh, and the pricing for Twisted Metal is fucking fantastic Dave. Kudos to you guys and Sony for making this happen. As a Twisted Metal fan, that is an awesome deal. I hope the best for you guys and can't wait to try your first game.

rallyRays said...

David, you can't appeal to kidz these days, unless you make a FPS with a space marine shooting bipedal aliens.

kidz these days... they whine and complain about nothing new, then they go out and buy Halo 3?!?!

mundinator its probaly built in his laptop.which is why its not that great quality.

Thirst said...

I also do not "get" the Twisted Metal games, but I do love Mickey Mania, GoW and CaC so I find myself willing to forgive those misdemeanors of yours.

havard114 said...

That vid blog is classic stuff. Classic!

And I'll definitely be picking up the new TM:HO for the PS2. Looking forward to it. Keep up the great work on the blog, you give me some hope that maybe one day I'll have the same type job as you. =)

Shelema said...

I'm not a fan of driving games or the Twisted Metal series myself but I don't speak for all gamers. I personally would like to see you go back to more story driven games like God of War in the future, but if you're doing what makes you happy, more power to you. I'm sure it'll be a great game.

Zodiak said...

Dave, I can understand if he was talking about twisted 3 and 4 but never dare touch 1 and 2 of the series. I still have them and still play them once and a while.

but yeah, I hope it's another twisted game, but I doubt, I'm definitely leaning toward some new IP which involves underground street racing (as suggested by the Midnight Club 3 and Puzzle Quest purchase in a previous vblog).

(crazy thought) perhaps a crazy racing puzzle genre will emerge??? lol.

Joel said...

lol. im loving all the new videos.

man, to be a fly on the wall when you guys sit around that very table tossing out game ideas.

actually.. while im dreaming, i may as well go the whole 9 yards and plant my butt in one of those chairs. lol.

Kori said...

I bought a playstation 1 for Twisted Metal. I loved the playstation because of Twisted Metal 2.

I bought a PS2 specifically to play TM:B. I will buy the new TM on day one.

The day TM lands on the PS3 is the day I will buy a PS3. No other game has had the type of impact on my gaming quite like the TM series.

You sir, make excellent games. How in the hell could anyone not agree?

Rey said...

Hay Tapion440 there has to be a Twisted Metal 4 first


Twisted Metal
Twisted Metal 2
Twisted Metal Head on (3)
< i cant not wate to see what his one looks like>

Twisted Metal Black (1)

Skyview said...

I'm a Twisted Metal die hard fan, In anticipation for the next installment for a next-gen console.

hmmm here's a concept: I think the series should continue to focus on character stereotypes and design! 4 example:

- every character should have their own customized mines.
-Thumper should be drinking @ the wheel and toss flaming cocktails behind him.
-Crimson fury looked like he was in the mob so... bodies should pop out the trunk causing disruption to steering...

I could go on for days but like i said I'm a Die Hard. Wassup 2 all the TM fans out der!!!
