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