Why do we bother putting out new games when there's so much life left in the old ones? Zandronum forum member mr fiat takes the classic Doom 2 multiplayer deathmatch and replaces the marines with cars, complete with dashboards. I want to play this right now.
One of the most villainous ways to raise the fear level in a game is to throw in a psycho clown. That clown is hides behind his stupid fake smile, searching for a way to earn your trust.
Let me put this delicately. I don't want to see a Twisted Metal movie. But I do want to see a Twisted Metal movie get made. I want to see what happens when the whole thing gets trashed in a review. If it's anything like what happened with the game's review this week, it'll be far more entertaining than whatever…
As I played through the first single-player mission of the new Twisted Metal I felt oddly disconnected from the previous games in the franchise.

Out in the middle of the desert, a remote-controlled M249 Squad Automatic Weapon will unload its magazine into Sweet Tooth's iconic ice cream truck from Twisted Metal, releasing on Tuesday for the PlayStation 3. The trigger will be thousands of spacebars from across the Internet, and the finger on one of them can be…
In a promotional video interview that went live on February 6th, David Jaffe included a statement that I and others found objectionable. So I objected. After the piece ran, Jaffe reached out to me through Twitter and we agreed to schedule a call. Yesterday evening, we spoke about the issue by phone for roughly half an…
