Creator David Jaffe weighs in
Twisted Metal maker David Jaffe has weighed in on the state of the franchise, releasing a video as response to the “numerous” daily tweets he receives from fans asking about the future of the car combat series. In the ten minute clip, he makes clear that he doesn’t own the brand and so any decisions about its...
Responds to Drawn to Death comments
He’s certainly not for everyone, but our face lit up when David Jaffe took to the stage during Sony’s big PlayStation Experience keynote last week. Having covered several of the industry veteran’s titles over the years, we know that it’s always fun reporting on the God of War maker’s games. And with...
God of War maker returns
We knew that David Jaffe wouldn’t be able to stay away for long. The veteran PlayStation employee – who’s behind some of the platform holder’s biggest properties, including God of War and Twisted Metal – looks set to reveal his latest project at Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation Experience fan event. Of course, th
Claims latest project is being funded by pensioner who can cure werewolves
God of War creator David Jaffe has always worn the signs of a mad genius. After all, who could forget his customary curse-laden rants or that weird Twisted Metal trailer where he started shooting a machine gun at a replica of Sweet Tooth’s famous ice cream truck – in...
God of azure
Kratos’ trademark look may not have changed much over the years, but series creator David Jaffe has revealed that the fearsome antihero went through a big makeover shortly before the original God of War was revealed to the press. According to the outspoken developer, at one point the protagonist sported blue tribal tattoos – until...
Outspoken video game director – and God of War creator – David Jaffe has not been put off by the upcoming God of War: Ascension's emphasis on multiplayer. Speaking with IGN, the legendary developer said that he thinks the game looks “cool” and that it is likely to be another “impeccably executed Santa Monica game”. He continued:...
Chase to Vegas
It’s rare for those of us on the outside to get an inside peek into the game development process, but that’s what makes videos like this all the more fascinating. Twisted Metal co-director David Jaffe has uploaded a ten-minute “greenlight” video to his YouTube channel, which was originally produced to update Sony executives on...
Take a shot
Have you ever wanted to fire a real machine-gun? Well now’s your chance. In order to promote Eat Sleep Play’s upcoming car combat reboot, Twisted Metal, Sony’s pointed an M249-SAW at a real-life version of Sweet Tooth’s truck. All you’ve got to do fire it is visit ShootMyTruck.com and hit your space bar. Seriously. The...
Staying on the saddle
Eat Sleep Play managed to rock the video game industry this week by announcing its transition to smart-phone development and the departure of co-founder David Jaffe. With Twisted Metal still a week away from sprinting onto store shelves, Game Informer caught up with the God of War creator to get an update on the outspoken developer’s future plans: Scott [Campbell, Eat Sleep..
If you’re anything like us, then you’ll love the Twisted Metal demo that launched on the PlayStation Store this week. Eat Sleep Play’s series reboot is everything we’d hoped it would be and more, boasting a chaotic sense of style that’s grounded in some super deep mechanics. It’s a real throwback treat. But sadly for European fans like ourselves, it’s going to be a little..
The oldest franchise in PlayStation history is finally ready for its return on PS3, as developer Eat Slep Play has just announced that its upcoming Twisted Metal reboot has gone gold
For those not up-to-date with industry terminology, "gold" is the term attached to game code that is fully completed and ready for manufacturing. In short: the game's probably being printed onto blank Blu-ray..
David Jaffe's video blog is always a source of legitimate fun
Watching the God Of War creator devolve into a sub-human state as the release of Twisted Metal release nears has been a genuine source of pleasure for us. We don't mean that in a nasty way; moreover that we enjoy Jaffe's personality, and love the passion that he so clearly brings to everything he does. In a slightly reserved video blog..
Legendary PlayStation developer David Jaffe has indicated he'd prefer it if his upcoming Twisted Metal reboot didn't ship with an Online Pass code
The developer told Eurogamer: Id actually prefer [it if we didn't do an Online Pass], even though its probably good business. Only because we have such a mountain to climb in terms of gaining peoples good faith, especially in Europe, and really..
David Jaffe has broken his silence on the rumoured Sony mascot brawler said to be in development at SuperBot Entertainment
Leaks over the weekend revealed development snaps of the project, which featured two of David Jaffe's characters: Sweet Tooth and Kratos. Prompted on Twitter, Jaffe claimed that while he knew nothing about the project, he hoped that it was real. Four folks asking if I know..
Earlier in the week, Eurogamer scored Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception an 8/10
A great score no doubt, but somewhat out of line with the general consensus. While Uncharted 3 garnered 9's and 10's from most publications, Eurogamer's review generated a reasonable amount of vitriol mostly because it seemed to argue against what the franchise tries to achieve. Namely, put you in the seat of a..
Twisted Metal's no longer releasing in October
The game's due out in "early 2012" now. Part of the reason for the delay is because David Jaffe and his Eat Sleep Play team want to ensure Twisted Metal is the best game it possibly can be. The extra months are really needed for polish and we feel we need more than four to six weeks of polish and tuning," Jaffe wrote in a statement..
Eat Sleep Play's David Jaffe is one of the most honest figures in the gaming industry
It's hard not to be entranced by the developer's no-nonsense style of discussion. If you haven't had a chance to listen to chat on GiantBomb's E3 special podcast, you really should. He's a fascinating character. Having said that, we think Jaffe puts himself down a little too easily at times. It's worrying to us..
David Jaffe has said that he won't pander to European tastes in order to make the Twisted Metal franchise more popular in the region
As Brits, we're thinking "thank goodness for that". Twisted Metal is all about balls-to-the-wall mayhem with the deeper, technical layer hidden beneath all the carnage. We'd never want Jaffe to take that away. What were not going to do is go how do we..
Twisted Metal is coming back this year, and we can't wait
Sure we might be in the minority, but there really is nothing better than a slice of car combat for serious competitive multiplayer fun. We sound like a shill, but it's true. And it's been so long since a good developer has sat down and said, "Let's make a really good car combat game." Twisted Metal might be niche in this era, but..
We should have got a bunch more information about Eat Sleep Play's Twisted Metal reboot as part of GDC last week, but unfortunately the game was a complete no-show
In response to speculation surrounding the game's disappearance, David Jaffe has taken to his blog to explain that the showing was pulled in favour of a less-busy window. "We were...
David Jaffe squashes hopes for breakfast
Twisted Metal is on its way to PlayStation 3, but the game won't let you make use of your favourite motion controller, according to a Tweet from director David Jaffe. davidscottjaffe: @iawt No, no move support for TM. Doesn't seem like a great fit. The first footage of the game shows off a flaming-headed...
David Jaffe's confirmed (though we're not sure if we can trust that guy) that his newly announced Twisted Metal reboot will be getting a panel at ComicCon this year
So, if you want to know why Sweet Tooth's hair is on fire, you'll never get a better chance. He's also revealed that there's a possibility the game might be playable at PAX, but no word as to whether the game will appear at GamesCom..
Amazingly, we'd actually talked ourselves out of Twisted Metal on the PlayStation 3 being a thing
We knew Jaffe was working on something that involved car combat, but we'd given up on that project being Twisted Metal. We'd certainly given up on it making an appearance at this year's E3. But appear it did, in somewhat glorious fashion, and the PushSquare office was prone to the odd squeal of..
One of the best highlights of this year's E3 was unveiling of Twisted Metal -- a game that David Jaffe had somehow thrown us off the scent
We truly believed it wasn't coming. But then, right at the end of that E3 conference, Sweet Tooth. The game's looking just as chaotic as it should, which perhaps didn't translate quite as good as it should during Sony's press conference. Which is why, this E3..
During Sony's press conference last night, they revealed that David Jaffe and his team at Eat Sleep Play are indeed working on a new Twisted Metal game, with much of the original team still intact
With an on-stage Sweet Tooth, Jaffe and co demoed some of Twisted Metal's new 16-player multiplayer features. An exciting new addition to the franchise is the inclusion of helicopters, so you'll be..
Embedded above is a supposedly "leaked" list showing both Microsoft and Sony's E3 game line-up
Its true origin is unknown, though our source - TSA - state that it emerged somewhere "on Twitter". And it piqued David Jaffe's interest. The legendary Playstation developer, thought to be working on a PS3 reboot of the Twisted Metal franchise couldn't help but comment on the list's mention of..
We don't like developer diaries here at PushSquare
Honestly, they're usually really boring. But these Modnation Racers interviews with seasoned Playstation developers (check out the Insomniac one through here) have been nothing but refreshing. The editing is exciting, the subjects are passionate, and the videos are just about the right length. Plus, give kudos to whoever kept Jaffe down to two..
David Jaffe - legendary Playstation developer - has dropped some pretty big hints that his company's latest title (hotly tipped to be a Twisted Metal reboot) is on the cusp of an announcement

Is Twisted Metal coming? Is Twisted Metal coming
.. Of course it's coming. What better hint could you have than an awesome Sweet Tooth costume rocking its way as part of this week's US Playstation Home update. There's a bollock load of stuff in this week's update, including inFamous and Resistance stuff, a music themed personal space, and more. Hit...
Cross Twisted Metal off your list of potential Playstation 3 announcements tonight
Jaffe's updated his blog stating, We are working hard on our game and were looking forward to showing it to you today on GTTV oh wait thats not us." So it ain't Twisted Metal then. Latest rumour's hinting towards some kind of Killzone 3 announcement. Mental.
For those of you who have followed David Jaffe's recent interviews with Kotaku and 4Guys1Up, you'll know the God Of War creator is yet to play the final version of God Of War III yet
So it's pretty interesting to see him react to the latest footage uploaded by GameTrailers TV yesterday. Obviously, whilst still not being directly connected to the franchise, David Jaffe still has a strong connection..
At DICE's AIAS awards last night, acclaimed Playstation developer David Jaffe may well have caved to speculation that he's working on a Twisted Metal reboot
The outspoken God Of War creator received chants of "Twisted Metal" from the crowd at the AIAS, to which he responded, "Soon, b***h - eight or nine months!" That kind of timeframe would point to a release in..
In a recent personal blog-post, former God Of War director David Jaffe discussed his personal sense of gratification at Kratos receiving his own flavour of Slurpee in the build up to God Of War III
In one of Jaffe's renowned vlogs, the outspoken developer talked about his pride in the Kratos character, and how he hoped his latest project could reach a similar milestone, noting that such treatment..
In his latest video blog, Eat Sleep Play's David Jaffe talks about the multiplayer in his upcoming, yet to be announced Playstation 3 title
In the video, he describes his lack of interest in levelling and stats in multiplayer, and questions whether this "meta-game" (as he describes it) has become more important than the actual gameplay in...
Blah, blah, blah
To cut a long story short, we posted a story earlier this week about how David Jaffe had broken his long self-sanctioned silence in order to speak out against the ridiculous Australian ratings board. In that piece, we were keen to make note that it was good to see Jaffe back and to..
David Jaffe has been hard at work on his new Playstation 3 exclusive for a while now
After touting a few teasers, information has dried up a fair amount, namely because Jaffe is seriously busy with actually making the game. Thankfully, it seems like that game is around the corner. As part of a series of Tweets from the legendary God Of War/Twisted Metal man, Jaffe reflects that the best thing about..
After our speculation yesterday, David Jaffe has confirmed via his blog that his game will not be on the show-floor at next weeks E3
He does suggest the game will make an appearance next year, and may even be announced during the conference - but until then, the game remains clouded in secrecy. We're not sure if we can take another year without a Jaffe announcement. We hope this is a smoke-screen..
David Jaffe is 100% one of our favourite people within the games industry
We love his honesty and respect his opinion. He's just an all around cool guy who just so happens to make awesome games. Which is why our hype is literally through the roof for his next title - which we're going to go out there and just say it's Twisted Metal - and are literally chomping at the bit for more information..
David Jaffe is a legend in our opinion
