Another series that they wanted to bring back. So many fans from a decade ago have been waiting to see it done. And now we can get our hands on it, is it any good?
The wait is over. Twisted Metal has returned after a decade. The game is exclusive to the PS3 and even comes with a code for Twisted Metal Black.
So after being super hyped I went out and picked it up. Get home put it in the system and I have a grin. Unfortunately it didn't last. When I went into story mode I couldn't pick a character. But you start as Sweet Tooth so that was okay.
His story was pretty interesting, twisted and dark. But it was pretty short. When I finished with him the game said 33%, shit. As you play your character is no longer tied to the car. You can put them in the different cars you have unlocked, pretty nice.
But then the newness starts to wear off and you realize you dropped $60 for a game with only 3 characters for the story. Sure you can put them in other cars, but half the fun of Twisted Metal was all the crazy stories and characters. You will can use Sweet Tooth, Mr. Grimm, and Dollface. If you play online you can also use Preacher's gang. But they are using an online pass so buying it used is a waste and getting it as a rental only gives you half a game. In the game you can switch out your vehicle to let it heal and take advantage of the stat change. Good idea there. And I do say vehicle because as you play through you will have cars, trucks, semis, a motorcycle, and eventually a tank.
Also new this time around are game modes. You have your classic deathmatch. But thin you add Electric Cage, kind of like a headquarters style play. You fight in a selected area that moves and you take damage for not being in it after your buffer runs out. There is also Juggernaut, you have a badass semi that spawns enemies. You destroy the semi then you kill off the cars that are left. This one is kind of fun. And you add Deathrace, exactly what it sounds like. You go from point A to point B. The fun comes in when you find there is no second place. You can kill of the other cars or just try to out run them, but you have to cross the line first or you explode. There is a challenge mode, nothing really special there. And online, but big surprise signing on is a nightmare.
So overall kind of disappointing, I guess they were counting on multiplayer keeping people happy. Maybe they can add something to it by DLC to redeem it but I doubt it.
So that brings me to my verdict, rent it. If there is a major price drop go for it, but until then a rent is enough time to play it and be done with it. Sadly the Twisted Metal Black voucher is the best thing about the game.

Adding some new faces helps but half the roster?
Just one of the new faces you'll be seeing this time around. Patroclus is the son of Sophitia. His sister Pyrrha will also be in the game. The roster will be 20 - 30 characters, plus there will be a create a charachter option of some sort.
I made mention of a lot of new faces before but here they have confirmed half of the roster will be new. How do the fans of the series feel about that? And with 10 - 15 returning characters who do you want to see? Any characters you hope are getting cut? Plus we have had some talk about bonus characters, who are you hoping for? I'll try the game no matter what because of the history I have with it, but I might not be pre-ordering this. There is still a ways to go before we see the real game and the version they let people play at E3 was barely built. And with all these new characters being brought in what can we expect? If you aren't a fan of the series what would it take for you to give the game a chance?

With the Elder Scrolls series we have come to expect a few things. Open worlds, kill-able NPCs and turning into a vampire and werewolf.
Now that is what I think of when I think about playing as a vampire. Forget the Twilight angle where you don't realy look different. In the other Elder Scrolls games a vampire looked like everyone else, but the npcs knew you were infected. The werewolf changed though. I guess we can thank the Underworld series for getting the hellish looking vampire put in.
But you can also join the Dawnguard if you want to hunt vampires down. So you can play it from the side you choose.
If you go vamp you can meet others like yourself and get into their stories. They mention a girl caught between her parents as they fight for power. Not exactly an original idea, but still sounds fun to me.
Transforming into the real vampire form will let you have some nasty melee along with special vampire skills. Like bringing a corpse back to life to help you. And with the wings you can take limited flight.
The expansion should be good for around 15 hours of extra play, but if you're like me you can go way beyond that just terrorizing the citizens.
It'll be on the 360 June 26th and PC and PS3 will have to wait an extra month.
And Game informer had a list of perks for the vampire:
- Power of the Grave: 50 bonus points to health, magicka, and stamina
- Vampire Grip: A Force Pull style ability that allows you to pull distant targets toward you and choke them
- Summon Gargoyle: Conjure up some help in battle with one of these menacing monsters
- Corpse Curse: Paralyze your foes with this magical blast
- Detect All Creatures: A vampire who wants to live long should stay aware of his surroundings
- Mist Form: Turn yourself into an invulnerable cloud of mist while regenerating your health, magicka, and stamina
- Supernatural Reflexes: A slow motion style ability that allows you to move quickly in for a kill while the enemies move sluggishly
- Blood Healing: Killing someone by biting them restores all of your health
- Unearthly Kill: Night powers and Blood Magic cost 33% less
- Poison Talons: Melee attacks deal 20 points of poison damage
- Night Cloak: A shroud of bats feed on enemies within melee range
