Hello there vehicular combat fans in Gaint Bomb forums

About nearly a week ago, there was an article from Eurogamer mentioning about the next installment is in development, and no one in Giant Bomb is speculating about this so I want to see you guys share your thoughts.

A new Twisted Metal game is reportedly in the works • Eurogamer.net

To me, it's good to see more and more 1st party driving game IPs appear by next-gen's gaming industry.

I think there's definitely room for a game of the caliber of Twisted Metal 2 or Black, but it's a franchise with far more misses than hits. I hope developers take note of the misses, learn from them, and realize this doesn't need to reinvent the wheel. It doesn't need robots or kaiju or whatever dumb thing they think will help push copies. It just needs to be a good Twisted Metal, with fun car combat, fun cars, and fun endings. Please, for the love of God, don't stick in card systems or rogue-lite whateverisms or whatever the flavor of the day happens to be. Just let me shoot a man stuck between two big wheels while I'm racing around in my 57 Caddy-alike.

Wait.. they're making a Twisted Metal TV show? uhh okay.

I never knew Sony published Twisted Metal. Always thought it was a THQ joint or something. Must be pretty annoying for David Jaffe if this thing actually ends up doing well. Dude seems like a bit of an ass, but Twisted Metal was pretty much his baby.

I do wonder whether these games still have the pull that they had back in the day. Remember Destruction Allstars? Onrush? It just seems like the people at large are not really into these games that blend cars and combat. There's nothing wrong with being a niche product, but when you have to throw bots into the online matchmaking because there are not enough people playing the thing, that's going to be a problem. Eventhough Destruction AllStars launched with PS plus, people didn't stick with it at all.

Anyone played that 2012 Twisted Metal on ps3 btw? That too seemed to be met with a general shrug.

@onemanarmyy: Yeah I remembered Destruction AllStars and OnRush, they're both weird in terms of concept & gameplay so that's why most car lovers don't have an interest in both, as I know the majority of them would prefer Wreckfest and MotorStorm more.

In this case, Destruction Allstars requires players to chase for their car at the start of every match before using them to ram onto others to score, if they get destroyed, they must run on foot until they reach another car.

While OnRush is about dominating by performing reckless driving skills which include ramming onto others, running onto checkpoint gates and many other ways to score for their team.
