Hey guys and gals!

Yall may know me as SirCrush, former #2 on the covetted ::aww:: leaderboards. These days...I still go by SirCrush. BUT! I have been working with my buddy Carl (who you may remember as co-founder of the original 7D$ from pre-PS3 games) on a website that reports gaming news with a focus on "Under the radar" games and gaming.

Currently we are still doing mainstream work as we build our connections in the industry (possible E3 2013 badge may be coming my way!) but eventually, we are going to be covering all sorts of titles beyond the mainstream whether they be Indie or just smaller budget games across all platforms. Our staff is small as of now but that's the goal. Anyways, enough of this jargon...

We plan to do a feature article on the Twisted Metal PS3 community and how it is thriving despite the game's lack of general support from its developers and publisher. Twistedclans will, of course be a main focus in the article and I am still debating whether or not to include TMA. I may do a short spiel on them since they did help build the first TM community and definitely inspired this one.

Along with this feature, we thought it'd be a good idea to have 1 or 2 members of the community on to discuss it on a podcast. We'll talk about pretty much anything TM related for a good 30minutes or more. We prefer someone with insider knowledge of THIS site, an admin or something, so we can discuss its evolution and inception on-air. I'd also like to touch on the clan system and other things and having a guest or two to help with those discussions would be great.

We are a small, upstart site. This may or may not get a ton of exposure. It's something unique so it may well draw alot of attention. We'll see.

Visit us at http://www.therealgamers.net and sign up if you wish.,.Sorry, shameless plug lol But whether or not you sign up or ever visit the site again, we'd like some people on the podcast. Times and dates will be discussed sometime next week or sooner...the goal is Next Friday, May 10th but that isn't set in stone as we are still working on getting our podcast functional.

Thanks for keeping this community alive, yall...I know I am not the most active member of it but I used to be arguably THE most active member of this community. It's good to see it's not dying.

Also - Watch for me in your lobbies. I play a few games of TM per day still and I can hold my own pretty well, though I do get my ass kicked against some of yall pros lol

QuoteSo you stopped playing tm awhile ago, rarely rarely ever show up here and months later come here to plug your website?
There was a plug for the site in my OP but the idea is to plug twisted clans THROUGH our site ::uhm::

And I stopped FOCUSING on TM awhile ago, yes, but I still play it. Daily now, maybe once every couple weeks before that. Should I include "cliquey" in the article? I keed I keed!

Hmm...I sense discord. Fair enough. I thought this was a good idea but perhaps I was wrong? I don't want to rock the boat here so this idea can easily be scrapped if there is a general sense of not wanting to take part or that this is not something this community wants. I assumed it was a great thing but I hadn't given thought to the idea it might not be.

Would anyone be willing to elaborate on the "not interested" comments? This is a discussion forum and negative as well as positive reactions are welcome.

No one is saying its not a good idea, some people don't want to be on a podcast. Ask the right people and I'm sure they'll love to do it. If your podcast is somewhat popular I'm sure it should be great for the TM community.:

QuoteNot interested.
That's surprising, this seems right up your ally...

As far as negativity goes......the one thing Ive noticed about tm players is that there seems to be a high amount of emotions involved when it comes to something they like. There also seems to be an easily tapped into amount of anger when it comes to conversations involving tm or play styles.
The term rage quitter wasn't invented here but it could very well die here considering how much rage is actually involved in all of us.....
As far as podcasts go, I would but I have a tendency to get flustered easily or embarrassed when it comes to me talking to more than 2 or three people at a time. Take this horrible habit and amplify it with me believing there may be quite a few people listening and I would easily say something stupid or worse, freeze up.
If you need something written, Im your girl. Need someone to talk? You will probably only get silence.
If it came down to you actually doing it though and no one else wanted to then I would step up and do my best for the community.

I am sensing ALOT of resistance to this idea. My apologies for trying to plug my site but the idea was to give twistedclans the attention it deserves. Being involved in this community for SO LONG I am genuinely surprised I am viewed as a full outsider. I don't come here much and have moved on to other games so I suppose it is a fair assessment when i think about it. I'm just kinda bummed.

Kitten said it...lots of emotions when it comes to this game. I've got some too and I am sorry to see such resistance. Perhaps if I was a random person, that negativity from some wouldn't exist. Makes me feel like it's ME that is/was a problem

Well, anyhow, I think we're gonna scrap the podcast idea but I'll still be writing a piece about this place. It'll be all positive, no worries. My personal feelings toward this "thread" and its responses will stay on the sideline. The podcast is NOT popular, it's actually brand new and we're hoping to grow both the site and the show over time.

Parting words: I fully intended to be a small part of this community again after a several months hiatus but I am finding it quite difficult to find the willingness to join a community that really IS this cliquey. I'll play TM from time to time...planned to do it daily...but I decided to start playing again BECAUSE of the community so I'm not sure the motivation is there at this point. A couple bad experiences since I posted this thing have really left a sour taste in my mouth. Thankfully I've had a couple good PMs so I am not completely turned off. Not that anyone gives a fuck how I feel.

There's not even that much negativity, its just that those who are negative are being more vocal. I'm sure a majority think its a great idea. It sucks that your not doing it anymore.

Fuck too xD

Quote@Crush,
I just don't want to be on a podcast.

I have no opinion on your objective. I merely wish not to be nominated for it.

There are roughly another 1000+ options that play Twisted Metal at the moment to ask this of. I'd just like to take my name off of the nomination list.

Other people may feel the same way; which isn't wrong of them.
ooyy

Looks like Jobjob will be on our shoddy podcast on FRIDAY May 24th. We don't carry a livestream so you'll have to look it up or, come to think of it, I'll post the link in this thread once I've edited and posted it.

It's gonna be in interview format and sometime either that day or the day before, I'll have my tc.tk piece up with my take on the community and how it keeps on ticking and is a big part of why TM's popularity, although not a screaming giant like CoD games, hasn't seen a decrease in average player count for 6 months running.

Also, that day, Jeph is making his podcasting debut and our show's format is changing a bit, namely I'm gonna be more prepared to host the show and have a few more talking points. "Winging it" hasn't worked out too well thus far so I'm gonna add a LITTLE bit of structure but hopefully with the new dynamics, we'll have an entertaining show for you and do this community some justice.

Again, apologies to those of you who misunderstand this idea. We have some plans for a Jaffe interview at some point too where we'll ask his input on tc.tk and Twisted Metal in general. Yes, in order to make the site itself viable there IS a certain amount of promotion that goes into it. TRG is not unique in this approach, it's just how website building is done. I like to think we're the real deal, though we're still learning as we go and working our way towards prominence. Twisted Metal is literally the PERFECT type of game to supplement what we're doing...gaming news by REAL gamers, not just mainstream robots.

I hope you guys tune in since we're SUPER excited about this and I promise I'll try to make my article and the podcast worth checking out to more than just this community but to the gaming world at large.

PS - Jobjob yeah we're changing the podcast to Fridays instead of Thursdays due to everyone's availability. I'll PSN you right now in case you miss this post lol
