I’ve been writing a lot recently about Twisted Metal and I’d thought I’d end my series of Twisted Metal themed posts with a game pitch for a new Twisted Metal. This will be a bit shorter than most as there’s not a lot that needs to be changed from previous iterations. However, I’m a big fan of the more traditional style of Twisted Metal, such as 2 and Head On, and I would like to see a new game in that style. So without further ado, here’s my idea for Twisted Metal: High Octane.
I watched Nintendo Direct yesterday, my first one in awhile. I like the Nintendo Direct format but I prefer the normal format as oppose to the more special ones they’ve been doing recently on Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros and such. Overall, I think the presentation was okay, with little to get me excited about but there are a couple of things I would like to talk about, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Splatoon.
Remember Twisted Metal? It was the premiere franchise in the vehicular combat genre. The exploits of Sweet Tooth and the other drivers at the behest of contest holder Calypso built an interesting lore as well as a fun game. And what a fun game it was! Blasting cars with missiles, jumping ramps, blowing up buildings, pushing cars off of skyscrapers! It’s was pure carnal entertainment and I love every entry in the series. There have been a total of eight games (and three ports) in the franchise and as a big fan of the series, I thought a list of the best games in the franchise would be in order. So jump in your car and hook up missile launchers to it because here are the 5ive Best Twisted Metal Games!
I’m a big fan of the Twisted Metal series and one of my favorite aspects was the backstory behind the competition. Specifically I loved Calypso, the holder of the competition and possessor of great power which allowed him to grant the victor of the Twisted Metal competition one wish, no matter how outlandish. A new Twisted Metal title was released a couple of years ago and I recently played it and wrote a review on it. However, after completing that review, there was a chunk of that review I removed because it discussed one issue I had with the game that contained spoilers. Also, it didn’t really affect the quality of the game other than me personally disliking a change in the lore as a Twisted Metal fan. Therefore, I would like to discuss it here briefly and get some feedback from fellow Twisted Metal fans and newbies alike. So here’s your warning right now: there will be SPOILERS on the story mode of Twisted Metal 2012 in this post!
