So how many of you are going to get Twisted Metal on launch day?

I just wanted to see what the general consensus is.

Opps I just realized B. and E. are the same. Fucking weekend.

Not me, but I was surprised to hear from the girl at the local GameStop that it was there second most preordered game there, behind XIII-2.

I'm definitely intrigued by it, but not enough to race out (ha, race (you know, because it's a vehicular game (don't tell me that it's not a racing focused game))) and buy it day one.

Nah...when it drops to like $20 then probably. I think they would have been better served just focusing on the MP and making it a downloadable game.

#6 Posted by NinjaTard (151 posts) -

I loved TM2 but didn't play Black and the stuff I've seen for this one makes me want to play it. I just don't think I can justify a $60 game in a month or two when I still haven't played Gears 3, Dark Souls, or Alice:Madness Returns (all of which I am dying to play) and I have unfinished Skyrim, Saints 3, and Back to the Future

That free TM: Black is a might fine incentive though.....I may get convinced once reviews and stuff pops up since I work next to the mall and two GameStops

I've had it pre-ordered for awhile. It's a day one buy for me.

Same here. Happy Bloody Valentines Sweettooth style

I was playing Twisted Metal online on my PS1, when the whole ethernet addon thingy fried on me. I loved it up to that point, but I was only like an hour in. Lacking proper nostalgia, it's not on my radar. If everybody is coming away from it being over the moon and recommending the multiplayer experience, I'm gonna grab a copy for sure.

When does it come out?

#10 Posted by iPliskin (117 posts) -

David Jaffe is a douchebag, i will never give money to that attention whore.

#11 Posted by RE_Player1 (7560 posts) -

@Seppli: Valentine's Day

@Marcsman: Cool. Where did you pre-order it? I ordered from EB Games/ Gamestop because when I got Uncharted 3 from them they gave me a $10 voucher off Twisted Metal.

#12 Posted by SMTDante89 (2579 posts) -

Yes, I finally had the chance to pre-order it today.

#13 Posted by MikkaQ (10288 posts) -

Well probably not me, I want to see how the game turns out, so I'll wait a little, not exactly a day-one thing for me. I need to have it proven to me that this kinda game can work anymore. Also would like to see an online community spring up around it. Then I'd really be sold.

#14 Posted by Demoskinos (14830 posts) -

I would love to get this but I'm already buying two large RPG's with Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning on top of that I don't have a job so... no money.

#15 Posted by DeShawn2ks (1055 posts) -

Still on the fence about it. I haven't played a Twisted Metal game in so damn long. Probably read a few reviews before I pick it up.

#16 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5425 posts) -

I'm thinking about canceling my order for Uncharted: Golden Abyss (and just renting it instead) and putting that money toward this. Uncharted isn't going to have a lot of replay value whereas this has multiplayer. We'll see!

#17 Posted by Vorbis (2750 posts) -

Loved the others and Jaffe is one of the most honest devs out there, it's a pretty big risk putting out a car combat game in a market flooded with FPS and 2D platformers, he deserves a success.

#18 Posted by Bucketdeth (8012 posts) -

I will be, haven't played a car combat style game in a long time and this one is looking good.

#19 Posted by pantzing_nome (583 posts) -

@CharlesAlanRatliff: Plus you get a free copy of Twisted Metal Black with the first run of Twisted Metal.

#20 Posted by Spoonman671 (4636 posts) -

Probably.

#21 Posted by ZenaxPure (2569 posts) -

I won't be, Twisted Metal isn't something I personally want to pay $60 for. Not that it's not worth that price, but for my taste it's just something I will get down the line for cheap.
 
I am kind of scared of it bombing (since there doesn't seem to be a ton of love on the net for it) especially since Jaffe is a cool guy, but hopefully it will do pretty well.

I forgot about that! I remember liking that game on the PS2.
#23 Posted by 49th (2757 posts) -

I have a gut feeling that it won't turn out very well, so I'll wait for reviews and hopefully be proven wrong.

#24 Edited by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

After L.A. Noire I am never buying a console game day 1 again. I buy PS3 games after a big price drop now.

#25 Posted by carnifexseverian (69 posts) -

Day one for me. Nostalgia has been very kind to me in the last year. Mortal Kombat and Rayman: Origins turned out to be some of my favorite games this gen, hopefully that trend will continue with Twisted Metal.

Despite the lack of any kind of attention from gaming sites and podcasts it's pre-order numbers are actually doing pretty damn well. It's at 130,000 pre-orders right now, 4 weeks from launch. That's more than Amular, SSX, and Soul Caliber V, all of which release sooner as well. I'm hoping this will be a sleeper hit and end up with a solid online community, that will be crucial.

#26 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7096 posts) -

I would love to but that all hinges on how quickly I can find a new job.

#27 Posted by Wicked_Wumpus (174 posts) -

I've got a pre-order for this game not just because I'm really excited for some awesome online car combat but because I don't want to hear Jaffe whining about how it didn't sell enough copies and there's no point in making games anymore. He put his blood, sweat, and tears into the game and I'm very excited to see the outcome of all that work.

#28 Posted by Yummylee (21642 posts) -

I'll get it eventually... but there's other games I'm currently saving up for that take priority. Mass Effect 3, Operation Raccoon City and Silent Hill: Downpour alone in March =X

#29 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

NewEgg had it on sale, so I pre-ordered through there. It was like 42 or 48 bucks. Seemed like a good deal, and I loved the TM franchise. Won't play it probably til that weekend. It's out on Valentine's Day...

Blasphemy!!!! How is he a douchebag and/or attention whore?

As for me I can't wait for this game and will totally be buying it on day one.

#31 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3052 posts) -

I'm not getting it.

#32 Posted by J0PALACE0K (75 posts) -

Yep, already pre-ordered!

Gonna have some serious playing to do: SSX, Twisted, Fifa Street as well as unfinished SR3 and Skyrim!

#33 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4915 posts) -

if the demo plays well, and if the game is as fun as i felt they where in the past. Then i will get it at launch.

#34 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

If I had a PS3 I'd probably get it. I never played much Twisted Metal in my day, but I saw the trailer and it's a lot more appealing with this gen's graphics than it was on the ugly ass PS1.

#35 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1639 posts) -

Got it pre-ordered.  Getting it Day one, 'cuz fuck it, my girlfriend can play Twisted Metal for Valentine's day.

#36 Posted by Centimani (550 posts) -

Absolutely will. I didn't give two shits before giving the demo a try, but now I've spent all my free time for four days just playing nuke. It's a kind of fun I haven't had in a long time.

#37 Posted by Gamer_152 (14078 posts) -

I'm interested but I've never been that hyped for the game. I'm still not sure if I'll buy it at all.

#38 Posted by Lazyaza (2183 posts) -

I've been waiting since TM black for a new one, so yes day 1 must buy.

This. The concept of car combat seems so dated to me.
#40 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

I'm not sure it'll be on launch day. I want to see how good the online is first.

#41 Edited by spartanlolz92 (511 posts) -
