Awwww yes . . . aggressive e-mails.  Quite possibly the most difficult thing for people to deal with during a trying time in your life because, as we all know . . .

YOU HAVE TO READ AN E-MAIL RIGHT WHEN YOU GET IT, and the worst part is YOU CAN'T DELETE THEM UNTIL YOU'VE READ THEM.

I can't tell you how many penis implant e-mails I've had to suffer through in the last year alone.   Embarrassed

I don't think we need to find out anything from Mort. Call, e-mail, snail mail, or text I still don't believe Mort would even do that.

And where the hell is this dude that started this post with his 4 post record over the course of 4 years? 1st off,
thanks for smacking the hornet nest again. It's given us something to talk about. And 2ndly, WTF you got to say for yourself since Jaffe backtracked and basicly,
kinda, sorta, maybe a little bit

fucking lied?

Ohhh......that's right! I guess I got to wait another year for you to answer!

Yeah, it's obvious the OP is not an actual TMA visitor in any capacity ("to the developers of this site" lol who says that).
You would think by what the OP said & by his poster name that he is a butthurt Twisted Metal fan looking to blame TMA for Jaffe not making another Twisted Metal. I do not think this is the actual case, that just sounds a little odd doesn't it? I think he is a butthurt Drawn to Death fan who thinks too highly of Jaffe and was trying to score points with him by disrespecting TMA. totally backfired though, the OP accidentally exposed Jaffe as (more of) a liar & gave this forum far more attention than the Drawn to Death forum.

There is, of course, a lot of crap that rises out of this thread. The most obvious is that Jaffe is willing to significantly exaggerate a story if it serves his purposes. In the original story, the caller is an aggressive douche who won't take no for an answer and insists on going on and on about how the unreleased Twisted Metal could be better (and since they can't have played the game, it makes them look like even more of a jerk).

In the new version, it's an unassuming e-mail.  An e-mail can be ignored, deleted, blocked . . . there's nothing overtly offensive about just receiving one, even if it has suggestions for the game, AND even if you receive it as a member of your family is dying. Nevertheless, in his new story he is still somehow offended by it.

It gets worse though when you really think about it.  I don't have Jaffe's e-mail.  Do you?  It's not something that can just be looked up, and I'm willing to bet it's not something that he will just give to you if you ask for it.  So IF it's true that there was an e-mail, then it's almost certainly true that Jaffe gave it to this person in order to give him feedback.

IF he gave it to him though, then why the hell would he be surprised and/or upset if he suddenly received an e-mail?  He ssure as hell shouldn't be unless they're calling him "bitch momma" in the e-mail.  He ought to be expecting an e-mail.

Based on these changes though, there's really no reason to even believe the new e-mail story.  It just doesn't add up, and since the story has already had a significant change all of the details are suspect.

I'm starting to wonder if what he really did was take all of the Twisted Metal fan correspondence over the years that he now finds annoying, and channeled it all into a daydream where we're one big bastard who calls him and annoys him as his dad was dying.  Seems plausible.

What's really frustrating is his perception of the fanbase.  I've seen for many franchises when fans get upset they say cruel things to the developers. They harass them. They make death threats.  We waited over ten whole years for a worthy sequel only to get a glitched out, buggy, and watered down piece of shit. We didn't trash him or his team though. We argued with each other, and then went back to our lives and playing the old games.

In return he ran our names through the mud, permanently wrote us off, and now makes up bullshit about us being abusive assholes when someone's Dad is dying.

Real classy.

Yeah, his timeline of events make no sense. Jaffe and Mort talked after TMX came out & in Jaffe's Twisted Metal contest in 2012 two of the three winners were TMA posters (myself & Kilrgrn). Jaffe even shared one of Mort's TMX youtube videos on Twitter... and that was like about 2 years after the game came out.

I agree with this. The TM community was a very passionate bunch, but I feel like we are all fairly down to earth people. Like I said, the most inappropriate thing to come out of this site was my childish comments about the music, and that was before TMPS3 even came out.

After a rocky release, we sort of had trust in these developers, and bickered among ourselves. When no fixes came of it, we sort moved on. So I'm not sure why we get such a bad wrap. We're the most patient group I've ever seen.
Maybe the other forums were a bit more harsh? I can't help but beat a dead horse. At least it's something to talk about. I also recommend the modding thread to lurkers reading this as well. TM2 is making some great progress in terms of modding after 21 years.

You guys are acting like fans of things can't be annoying cunts at inappropriate times. The guy was grieving, does it matter the medium the message was sent on? Clearly he was bothered by it otherwise he wouldn't have recalled the story on a random live stream. If he doesn't want to go back to the series that's his business, I'd be bored by it too.

1-Nobody is acting like that in this thread, what/who are you talking about? Fans of anything can be cunty, no shit, it's a universal truth, but professionals should be held accountable for their mistakes as well, so you're coming off as a Jaffe apologist...

2-Yes, facts matter actually. Ask most people if a phone call and an e-mail make a difference in an argument and most people would say an argumentative phone call is a far more stressful situation than receiving an argumentative e-mail. Also, evidence matters. there is no proof of his story... he can make up whatever shit he wants & assholes will believe it without proof, because he worked on Twisted Metal & God of War so he'd never lie  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

3- All due respect but him recalling a family tragedy from years ago on a livestream isn't healthy, he should be a big boy and not dwell on that & do positive things with his life instead of bitching about President Trump on Twitter all the time. Nobody at TMA minds that he is done with Twisted Metal. We're fine with that. It's the few ass-kissers he has on Twitter that bitch to him about making another Twisted Metal (because they don't know any better).

I did finally listen to the stream and he is oddly specific as well about the individual who supposedly contacted him.

I could understand why Mort would not be happy with this.

I went through a period where I was in fairly constant contact with Mort and I do not believe he would behave like this at all.

So since it appears Jaffe could not have been certain of who he was talking to (in an email we now understand) then I believe he should not have made the comments.

Hey, it's all good. At least we had another active topic on TMA. Oh the excitement. If only TMA had a necromancer, I miss the activity on this place.

Clearly not bored enough if you are posting on the series's fan forum blindly defending Jaffe who is making up shit for sympathy.

I'm not blindly defending anyone. I don't understand the negative reception for the guy. I'd argue there are people in this thread who are blindly defending the nameless staff member here. WHO CARES? Both instances are believable, and considering none of us know Jaffe on a personal level, maybe we should stop with the needless speculation.

And the context of what I said was if I were Jaffe I would be bored too..(I'm assuming you have a grade school education at least to understand that last bit.)

You completely ignored all of the evidence and defended a guy who was caught in a story that can't possibly be true.  The story can't even be close to true.

Then when this was pointed out you basically said, "Facts don't matter and/or alternative facts."

You shouldn't be insulting people about their education.  You're the one who needs to go back and read about logic and cause and effect.

You sure got me! SO MUCH EVIDENCE. A guy reflected on an event that happened to him five years ago on a random stream and didn't state the series of events to your liking..he's truly the worst person now. It's stuff like this that makes me loathe fan communities. Like this guy owes you something. You are so butt hurt this guy broke up with you and your video games you hang onto his every word. Move on.
