I want to meet the person who felt the best thing to pair with Twisted Metal and Sweet Tooth the Clown was a bouquet of roses, and I'd also like to meet the people in the corporate meeting who all agreed with him, and then I want a recording of the phone call between GameStop and 1-800-flowers in which this was discussed.

Played the demo a decent amount tonight and WOW! I disagree with the "same old thing" comment. The strategy involved in the gameplay now really takes it to another level from when I was playing it on split screen all night looooong ago.

Nuke mode is incredibly deep. Twisted Metal meets Battlefield. Different classes of cars with multiple offensive and defensive options, an amazing amount of teamwork involved, etc. If you think this is your grandfathers battlefield, you ain't played NUKE!

I also think the demo was amazing. But I also think burnout paradise was boring compared to the older splitscreen ones.

I think i am going to tweet this link to Jaffe and count the # of expletives he has to say about it.


I have to say, from what I know of Jaffe, and from the simple fact this game has been slated for a Valentine's Day release for months, I'll bet he has no issue with it whatsoever. In fact, he probably appreciates that their promo is in the sick, "Twisted" spirit of it all. He probably feels it really 'drives' home the dichotomy. No doubt some people will be a wreck on the 14th...okay, I'm done.

Full disclosure: A few years ago, I got called out by Jaffe for my Kotaku comment (and username) about Brett Ratner potentially directing a "God of War" movie. Jaffe's not the Patron Saint of Righteous Gamers, believe it or not. He's got a 'righteous rant' streak, to be sure, but he's got an even thicker sadistic one.

Female gamestop employees and gamer's mothers are going to get lots of cheap flowers.

sidenote: i agree that jaffe would prob think it's a funny idea, though i'd suggest something more tangible than basically a coupon i'm sure you can already find online with about 20 seconds of googling. how about a gun that shoots rose missles?

After playing the demo, I regret not jumping on the Newegg deal, hopefully they do it once more.

So not only will I be able to get Twisted Metal on Valentine's Day but I can save $10 and buy myself flowers too.

So it looks like the thought is "Pick up your 2/14 release, get your girl flowers, she will forgive you for buying a new game."

Big Problem, other than it wouldn't work: The game comes out ON VALENTINE'S DAY, meaning you'd never be able to redeem it in time to order flowers for 2/14 delivery. In fact, if you order online, the code is emailed to you AFTER VALENTINE'S DAY.

Also, there are online codes that are almost just as good.

Ah, well, perhaps I am just getting old. I am glad you enjoyed the game. And I hope you like the flowers that come with it, too.*

As for Burnout Paradise, I was using it as an example of something that offers more satisfying car destruction.

Gee, I sure hope not...Does anyone else think this is a really lame preorder bonus? As a female GameStop employee who doesn't even really like flowers, I think they could have done better...it's funny, but not actually useful.

Video Gamers don't have girlfriends, what is GameStop thinking?


you mean gamers that shop at GS don't have gfs.

i think they're just trying to branch out and also give incentive for soccor moms and dads to get something back when buying games at MSRP. BB has a deal with DWS shoe...cause you know when you buy a tv, dvd, and dj hero you want to grab a pair of loafers and still earn points. perhaps they should have a deal w/cinnabun.

This is a great marketing idea. Hey gamers, you know that girlfriend you don't have? Why not buy her flowers? No? Give them to your Mom then, she's downstairs upstairs making you a sandwich and she deserves to be treated nicely for putting up with you for 30 years.


Fix'd that for you.

If we're going to stereotype, let's do it right!

I'm married and considered it since I wanted TM anyway. Then I saw retailmenot had better deals for online flowers. Online flowers are almost $20 to deliver. LAME

I know this preorder bonus is kind of lame and all, but I preordered Twisted Metal at GameStop today when I was picking up Kingdoms of Amalur and they printed the promo code for the 1-800-FLOWERS $10 of $39.99 from 1800FLOWERS.com, so it is in fact useable before you get the game. In case anyone is interested the code is: PLAYSTATION
