Video: Twisted Metal: Umm... What?

Part action, part tacked-on story, and part (as a vast understatement) screaming, clawing-at-the-walls mescaline nightmare, the trailer for the latest Twisted Metal is very... odd. With dialogue that makes Postal seem like the most exquisite of poetry, and the addition of Transformers-like mechs, the game seems like the absolute and utter zenith of ridiculousness -- aggressive ridiculousness at that.

I'm not typically a fan of vehicle-based games, but I am a fervent proponent of explosions and missiles. Hence, I've always had a soft spot for Twisted Metal, which has the rather useless distinction of being one of the first games I played on the original Playstation. The latest in the series isn't exactly at the top of my "most anticipated games" list - given the almost novelty concept, I'm fairly surprised that the series has survived - but if nothing else, the game should be worth a rental.

In the meantime, Uncle Swede is off to check his pupils.

Not sure how I feel about the transforming aspect in this video, however, the Twisted Metal series has never failed to let me down and it's the only game on the PS3 that makes me regret selling my console.

I've been putting off buying a PlayStation 3 since its release, when I heard they were going to release a new Twisted Metal I thought to myself that this would be the game that would make me fork out to get one.

Did you play Twisted Metal Black Joseph? I am sure Sweet Tooth could transform in that.

Bring on November!

Love Twisted Metal!!!~!
The trailer ruined my excitement though. The whole morphing action joke just makes it less hardcore in my eyes :( Even Power Rangers had some more badass looking robots >_>

Me being a gigantic mecha fanboy (and Twisted Metal being one of the few vehicular games I enjoy), this actually looks really, really fun. I'm foked as stuck. Twisted Metal really needed a reboot of sorts, and while this does seem like a bit of a wild novelty, I think it can be executed well enough to make a solid comeback.
