What is there besides Twsited Metal?
01/30/15 at 06:34:16
 
It's been such a long time since I got to play any Twisted Metal and now i'm feeling the void. I could easily go back to TM PS3 but I absolutely played the heck out of it for a long time and i'm just left wanting more of the crazy action online and off and the story in a new chapter. If there is nothing new on a TM for the new gen systems than what else is there to fill the emptiness of the Car Combat genre? Can we have Vigilante 8 back? Rogue Trip ? Heck!! I'll even take a new Roadkill without hesitation. I know the genre is not the most profitable but with some effort they could make the best of it like having an advertising campaing or whatever political garbage term is there to let gamers know that your game exist. I just want to blow up cars with bat shit crazy fucking people behind the wheel.

:::::::::checks board:::::::: Ok. Awsome. This isn't TT Wall! It's Brawl! It's so yummy......

Basically, no.Good in theory but not for car combat anymore. Not unless a developer is going to reinvent the wheel really and make a current gen car combat game.

After what happened to TMPS3, I would be sure there wouldn't be to many of today's developers willing to embark on that road again. Or a current gen console for that matter. Nintendo sure as fuck ain't gonna do it, Sony has already been burned by it, and Microsoft can't get the rights to TM without MAYBE shelling out a shit ton of cash, and I highly doubt MS would pony that money up, or Sony letting their biggest competitor have their exclusive.

And that's where it's at really. Money. Would any car combat game make MONEY? Bottom line, profit margin, successful launch, money making game?

I personally don't see it, and I'm pretty sure there won't be a car combat game anytime in the near future.

I'm talking like 20 years from now.  Cheesy

Mad Max 2015 looks good. It's only single player but I'm still looking forward to it.

Are you only talking about vehicular combat with guns and missiles ? If not, you may have heard about Wreckfest and Carmageddon:Reincarnation. They're both very fun (especially Wreckfest IMHO), even though they're still Work In Progress.

I believe a vehicle combat game can profit if marketed and supported by its devs/publishers. I honestly believe Twisted Metal 2012 would have done much better on the sales charts had the server issues not plagued it during both the online demo and the launch. Even though I didn't encounter many errors during those days, many others did, and it was simply a terrible first impression by word of mouth. Sony stopped marketing it basically after it hit the shelves, and didn't give the game a chance. The game's issues at launch still brands the game as buggy to this day, even though the few persistent issues that still exist in current day are relatively minor. I really don't believe it's fair to say Sony gave Twisted Metal 2012 a fair chance to prosper, and although I get there were plenty of huge titles that were released within that time period, Sony burned themselves. For goodness sakes, there were vehicle models that had been developed for DLC which were fully polished, but apparently it would have took much effort to balance and release them.

I think I recognize you from the early days. TM PS3 is still quite active and there's a lot of us veterans that still play nearly on a daily basis, so don't feel shy to pop in again.

I found a game called Gas Guzzlers Extreme the other day, which looks like it has the combat of Twisted Metal and the racing/realistic car designs of Gran Turismo. It's about $20 on Steam.

A lot of times if I'm watching TM videos on YouTube, there'll be a recommended video for Gas Guzzlers Extreme claiming it to be "The New Twisted Metal" in the video title. That's just terribly misleading. Like almost every game in recent years that claims to be from the "vehicle combat" genre, it's a racer first and a vehicle combat game second. It'd be like calling Full Auto the new Twisted Metal. Those games can be fun, but there's a major difference between battle racers with deathmatch and objective modes tacked on, in comparison to games with mechanics and physics designed from the ground up for vehicle combat.

Seems to be based off of Quarantine slightly. Open world car combat, not sure how good it will be considering you fly.

I have some qualms with Mad Max but the open world and driving is looking tight


I wish the car combat wasn't based so much on ramming. I think that should be a last resort for realistic reasons. I don't care for the hand combat. I would've been happier with more ammo, knives, arrows, and weapons. There's also a bit sluggish feel from appearances. Still early to confirm all this for sure, but at the moment it's looking a bit meh.

Lately I like to play a lot of ARKHAM KNIGHT for the Batmobile/BatTank combat.

Car combat like Twisted Metal is rare. It trended during the PS1 days, and just a little with PS2 like that MOTOR MAYHEM game Adonael mentioned. Outside TM only Vigilante 8 really succeeded in making a fun car combat game series that had good gimmick and art direction. I also thought Singletrac's CRITICAL DEPTH game took the TM concept (and gameplay engine) into interesting territory with a submarine combat game.

Twisted Metal probably needs to be successful again in order for the genre to revive. Maybe.
