Details on the first DLC pack.
The price is set to be 400MS points or 5.00 on PSN, not but but what are they offering? Some new costumes (I know what a surprise), Shadow Mode will be there, Jill and Shuma are in (sorry if that was the only reason you picked up the S.E.).
If this will be how they roll out the DLC it should add value to getting it, but it feels like stuff that should have been in game. I know plenty of you have bought the costumes for SFIV but what happened to that stuff being unlockable in the game? Am I the only one who was proud of dumping in Hours just to be the only person you knew with Zack's Alien costume in DOA 3? I know that there is a group of people who want it all just handed to them, but that was part of the fun in beating the game. Who's getting the hook-up with pack 1? Thor, Captain America and Iron Man on the Marvel side, and Dante, Chris Redfield and Ryu on the Capcom side, not a ton, but hey they need the money right. But the Patriot skin for Iron Man, now they are mixing characters. Maybe we should expect an Iceman / Silver Surfer after all.
To say I have mixed feelings would be an understatement, but in this case I think Shadow Mode alone is worth the $5.00. We'll just have to wait for round 2 to see if they are going to milk it or really have something to add to the game.
Don't be a jimmy. You going to buy it, pissed, or really just don't care? Let's hear it.

Another game that will require a code...
It looks like if you buy a used copy you will have to drop another $10 to play online. I get that they want you to buy a new copy because they don't make anything off the used ones, but it still seems like a dick move. The list of games in this category will keep growing, and I'm sure companies like Gamestop will eventually balance it by fixing their own prices. What do you think? Are we getting screwed? Should we suck it up and pay the extra $? Do you only buy used? Or do you even play online? You know what to do, Don't be a Jimmy.

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.

Here the hackers go again
I try not to listen to roster leaks to often but after what happened with MVC3 I listening a little more.
http://shoryuken.com/content/rumor-full-mortal-kombat-9-roster-revealed-3855/ here's where I heard it.
They say the demo got hacked and they pulled the roster, might be believable. Ed Boon did say they had something special for the 360 users and I'm not seeing anything here. Maybe there are still some secrtets.
