Any luck with the online?

#1 Posted by Demoskinos (15165 posts) -

I've tried over and over to get a game in online in the demo to no avail. "Matchmaking Error" over and over again. This occuring for everyone or what? I loved what I played of singleplayer but man... I REALLY wanna try the online to solidify my decision to buy Twisted Metal instead of Kingdoms of Amalur.

I downloaded it today and have had no problems although a lot of people have been having matchmaking errors. Also just solidfy your purchase, this game is insanely fun.

I was able to get online once and play 3 or 4 matches. I actually won the first online match i did as Meat Wagon. But since then I haven't been able to get back online. I think David Jaffe has tweeted about it, something to do with so many people playing it or something, more than likely.

I think you just answer your own question. They need to keep something to make you buy it. I had a hard time getting connected to online and then I quit out nd joined again and it worked. After playing a full day offline I was really thrown how the online version of the stage was populated with pedestrians and traffic. That was interesting. After two days of playing, the game went from me being wary of it to a must buy. Its just as hard as every other twisted meal, but it's still worth it to suffer through he learning curve.

@TechHits got into a game last night and no lag for me. There was an unfortunate number of people knowing fuck all how Nuke mode worked though.

@SmiteOfHand: I have since gotten into a few games, and man was it fun. I gotta say the many years I spend playing TM2 payed off.

I re-downloaded the demo and the matchmaking works a lot better now.

I had problems booting up the multiplayer at first, the second try I gave it relented and I got into a game in an instant. And it was fun. Twisted Metal is all I need for 2012.

Took me 30 minutes of pressing "join" and getting "matchmaking error" in return before I was able to get into a game...and I got owned. It was really fun, though. I'm just not sure if it's a full price purchase for me yet. I'll wait and see

Now that the full game's out, anyone else still getting matchmaking errors? I've been trying for the last half hour or so and can't get into a match.
