4 – Twisted Metal rises from the ashes
Nintendo’s not the only one bringing the retro goodness.
After denying any involvement in a new Twisted Metal for what felt like forever, David Jaffe rolled on stage in Sweet Tooth’s signature ice cream truck as the heads of everyone in the room were on the verge of exploding.
The gameplay demo on Sony’s stage looked to retain the balls-to-the-wall action and speed that made Twisted Metal 2 and Black so great to play, while still pushing the franchise forward. The new TM introduces helicopters in which two people can fly and shoot from, while featuring the ability to lift cars below and moving them around. Players could also share cars, allowing a passenger to shoot a gun at other combatants.
The game was obviously still early in development, but past success on the Twisted Metal games he’s worked on leaves everyone with little doubt that Jaffe will deliver yet again.
3 – Gran Turismo 5 is finally coming
FINALLY. The game has a release date, one that you can circle on your calendar. And it should be here before the next Forza. Or so they say.
I hate to be cynical, but we were given a holiday 2005 release date for GT4 at that year’s E3, and the game was pushed into February at the last minute. Not that I’m bitter. You know what? I’m just going to watch the damn impressive E3 trailer endlessly until the UPS guy rings my doorbell November 2nd.
