The lights are on
David Jaffe, Twisted Metal director and vocal developer personality, has uploaded a video to YouTube updating fans on the status of Twisted Metal Online.
There isn't much to report other than the fact that Jaffe is aware of the problems people are having with his game, and he is appreciative of the feedback, even if it is negative. He's working with Sony to come up with a solution.
The reason this is interesting, is because we rarely see developers creating such a personal relationship with their fans. Typically communication of this sort is done through press release e-mails, but Jaffe sits down on his computer, pauses to belch, and let's everyone know that he is getting on the phone with Sony soon.

i love this guy. i just wish he wasn't leaving twisted metal.
Shame Jaffe is leaving Twisted Metal behind, but hopefully he doesn't leave core gaming entirely since he is an amazing developer.
Really awesome he made a personal video about the game. Not enough developers show their face and make a personality for themselves.
hes a really cool guy. i wish i knew him in real life that would beso cool. to just make a personal video for fans' problems is just awesome. i dont have the game, but i might get it soon.
hes a really cool guy. i wish i knew him in real life that would be so cool. to just make a personal video for fans' problems is just awesome. but the problems sound really bad (i dont have the game right now) so I hope he gets it fixed. its cool how he actually cares about the players and not just money like activision.
This is how all companies should do
at least he seemed like he was being honest
its a great game loved every minute of it... until i tried to get online on got on to the pick game screen just fine but there were many problems of actually getting on a game (which took forever since it was like each game lost connection or had already started) or a "host" not starting a game. these were my only problems with the multiplayer i had.
