Bimbo a Bourdaeux

Twisted Metal is the prototypical vehicle combat video game that has its roots planted firmly in the post classical era of console gaming. The first one came out in '95, making it one of the newly born playstation's first games. The gameplay was exactly what was expected to be delivered on this new 32 bit generation; shit blowing up, fairly large 3d arenas, good sound quality, and multiplayer gameplay. But it delivered more than that, it had macabre, it had the personality of a shitty grindhouse horror film, but it was creepy and funny enough to keep one involved in the rather large and colorful cast of characters that the player would navigate through the destruction to reach their prize by winning the tournament (and it was necessary for there to be a tournament, fighting games don't make sense otherwise, how do you justify all of these crazy motherfuckers coming out of the woodwork to fight eachother in some kind of organized fashion?)

the live action cutscenes remind me of the intro to the original resident evil. (apparently this site makes video games into movies, more investigation needed.)

anyway, they're making a new one for ps3. my only problem with it is that the music sucks a big fat hard one, and that sweet tooth hasn't been converted completely into a juggalo.

vigilante 8 was probably my favorite twisted metal knock-off, it took a more 70's comical take on twisted metal's dark humor, it even had a character that was supposed to mimic Barry Gibb.
