Twisted Metal

Sony Finally Reveals PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale

At long last Sony has unveiled their long rumored fighting game which was said to heavily borrow elements from Nintendo’s Smash Bros. series.  Like any announcement there was a lot of pre-announcement hype for this mystery project but in a rare occasion that hardly occurs in the video game industry anymore I don’t think anyone could’ve expected what the ultimate result would be – both in a good and bad way.

Twisted Metal Is Finally Going The Movie Route

Right now a great many of you may be busy cozying up to your loved one to celebrate Valentine’s Day or you’re alone and far busy destroying anything that moves through the vehicular mayhem that’s offered in Twisted Metal. Today PS3 gamers saw the latest entry in the long running Twisted Metal series arrive and so far the reaction has been good, despite the somewhat glum news that developer Eat Sleep Play and series creator David Jaffe would be stepping away from the franchise for a while.  

Eat Sleep Play (Twisted Metal) Shifts Development Focus and David Jaffe Departs Company [Updated]

Next week could prove to be a bittersweet occasion for PlayStation gamers as it could be the final time we receive a Twisted Metal game from David Jaffe.  The latest iteration of Twisted Metal may not have hit retail yet, hence it hasn’t gone on to become a hit or failure, but developer Eat Sleep Play has reportedly let several employees go and studio co-founder David Jaffe has left the company.  In the realm of unexpected news I think this Eat Sleep Play development ranks up next to Team Bondi closing in the “How the hell is this happening?” department.

Latest Twisted Metal Trailer Is Both Grim and Exciting

It may still have been disappointing for PS3 gamers that Twisted Metal missed its original October release date, but at least we know that David Jaffe and the team at Eat Sleep Play are putting their all into the project.  So far I’ve been impressed with the new Twisted Metal, which despite not reinventing the series drastically still manages to give gamers and TM fans what they want: fast vehicular based action.

These days it’s almost common for the video game industry to go the film industry route and reboot or relaunch existing franchises that really don’t need a comeback since they’re already so damn good.  At times hearing that a game is making a much awaited return after staying dormant for five years can lead jaded gamers being happy for once but on the other hand it can also lead to DmC type situations – pure resentment to the max.

The PlayStation Goodness Will Be Plentiful At The San Diego Comic Con

Back in the day the San Diego Comic Con used to be an event that primarily focused on comic books with the occasional appearance by a high-profile movie, which in some cases was based on a comic book. But these days the San Diego Comic Con has grown to become a huge pop culture/geek heaven mega-event that includes panels for a ton of TV shows, genre films and of course video games.

The Roads Are Once Again Dangerous In This New Twisted Metal Trailer

To many hardcore PlayStation gamers the Twisted Metal franchise holds a special place in the hearts of gamers.  Back in the day of the PS1, the Twisted Metal franchise was the first major game that allowed gamers to hop behind the wheel of a vehicle and let gamers go completely mad as they blew up other cars, some of which included an ice cream truck and a man trapped between two massive wheels.

A glimpse at the live-action cutscenes of Twisted Metal

The San Diego Comic Con didn’t just feature a wealth of new movie info for projects like Thor but there was some video game goodness as well.  Aside from the megaton announcement that was Street Fighter X Tekken, SDCC 2010 also had some info on this little project called Twisted Metal.

Video Games' Best Kept Secret

With the Recent events at E3 and all of the juicy love that came with it, we we're given a first look (a day after the photos leaked) of the new Xbox 360 design. Now although this is not much of a shocker, because the PS3 did a re-design and they must follow suit, it was still an awesome reveal.
