    Though U.S. gamers seem to still be able to access the online component of the new Twisted Metal (PS3) game, folks in Europe are currently unable to play online since the latest patch (1.05). The game's designer, David Jaffe, is aware of this issue and hopes to be able to shed more light on the problem sometime today.

    "I am hearing this and sorry about it," Jaffe said via his Twitter feed. "I will know what is up on Monday. No clue why SCEE territories are locked out :(.I'm sorry."

    Eurogamer reports that some folks aren't able to access the game's menu at all, leaving them unable to play any portions of the game.

    Sounds suspicious, perhaps someone was "twisted meddling" with the online service?

    I beat you to it, @[member='Gahars']!

    Anyway, this must be a cruel twist of fate for fans in Europe. It's a shame, too, because from what I've heard, the game is pretty metal.

    My rage has twisted higher than a death metal band's satanic-sounding songs.

    But in all seriousness, I'm in the US. I don't even really care, even if I did like Twisted Metal.

    At least the guy apologized. Poor guy, he probably went "WTF?!" when angry people started complaining to him about the online service. If I was in his shoes I'd feel frustrated as hell.
