    That's the only thing that would ever make me think about getting a PS3.

    I did enjoy the car derby series on PS back in the day...still can't be bothered with a PS3. Which is mildly odd as I adore my PS1 and PS2.

    Agreed. I played TM1 on the original PlayStation for dozens of hours as a kid.

    2.14.12 release date eh? I loved the Twisted Metal series on PS1. I really hate the pre-order crap of this generation. Just put the damn extras in the game.

    Twisted metal 1 & 2 were the shit. Loved those games.

    Sad thing about DLC garbage is that it is usually on the disc already and you have to pay for the unlock. It really is a load of horseshit and I refuse to preorder games just for the privilege of content that should be included in the first place.

    This is exactly what turns me off of most 'Big Splash' games. Dragon Age is a fine example. Not even an hour into the game, some NPC is raving about this big Frozen Castle with loads of goodies in it, ripe for the taking. Next screen of his speech is the Visa/Mastercard symbol, and for 4.99, I can go there.

    Power Off, return game, go fuck yourself.

    Anyone else going to pick up Twisted Metal either tonight or tomorrow?

    I hate that you have to pre-order to get Axel, but at least they're making him available free after 30 days and not charging for him.

    I'm still considering going and pre-ordering it last minute at Walmart.

    I'd be more interested in a reboot of Interstate 76.

    Rented it yesterday. It's fun, but kicking my ass. And I'm not sure of all the controls yet.

    Set the control type to "racing". It made the game so much easier for me.

    What is the difference? I don't have a manual, BTW. Just Redboxed the fucker.

    I've never even heard of that.

    EDIT: Okay, I'm in.

    Warning - it will continue kicking your ass even once you get accustomed to the controls. It is seriously unforgiving. I'm just up to Mr. Grimm's storyline, which is the second of three. The actual races they put into the game are fucking rough. As are the electric cage matches and bosses. The straight up grand melees are definitely fun and doable.

    Did I just have to watch an advertisement to watch an advertisement?

    Fuck the internet.

    The main difference is that L2 and R2 are brake and gas. R1 is the handbrake.

    By the way, I didn't read the manual either.

    Since I bought the game new and it came with a voucher for Twisted Metal Black I gave it a try. I suck even worse at it than I do this new one.

    I've been playing it since I got it Saturday. Haven't touched the story mode, right now I'm just content with the online multiplayer and challenge modes. Multiplayer is having some server issues, it takes a couple trys to get into a game.
    It's fantastic....15 cars of random makes flying around, missles and gunfire, buildings crumbling down and fleeing pedestrians scattering/getting run down. Also the level of shit talk from the guys with the mics and headsets. And the levels are unbelievable in size and scope of what you can destroy/plow your car through....high schools, movie theaters, mansions, swimming pools, the subway, a TV studio...it's just unreal how many things there are to explore and then try to blow up.
    So far this is my second fav of the series behind sentimental favorite TM2 from 1996. Mr Slam was my guy, Paris and NY Rooftops were my fav tracks. I still play that every once in awhile for a trip down memory lane of my college years.
