Zach Wood, Senior Producer of PlayStation’s Twisted Metal series, has revealed that Axel is now available to every player of the demolition derby-based game with today’s free patch.
The two-wheeled bringer of destruction was formerly a pre-order bonus back on Valentine’s Day. Now all fans can roll out a new approach to damage with Axel’s unique methods of attack. Guilty bystanders can be kept at a distance with his signature Crowd Control, or utilize his aptly named alternate special attack, War Wheel, on unsuspecting enemies.
Gameplay for not only the bi-treaded terrorizer, but other vehicles from the game, is available in the Twisted Metal University [...]
EA dominated the UK All Formats Chart this week with no less than four titles occupying the top five places. Their latest release – Fifa Street – currently resides at number one, having broken sales records for the franchise. Fifa Street’s new entry pushed former chart leaders Mass Effect 3 and SSX down to second and third spot respectively as EA’s other football title Fifa 12 held firm at number four.
Elsewhere, Twisted Metal entered at a disappointing twelfth (the delayed European release probably didn’t help) while Capcom’s Street Fighter x Tekken dropped outside of the top ten to land just above in eleventh. Interestingly, Rage was the [...]
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve posted a fresh episode of the @GspotPodcast, but @fanaticalg returns to host the show yet again. The 50 minute episode is choked full of condensed gaming and tech goodness, so we suggest you dilute it with the 3-4 minutes of bloopers at the end. By the way, if you’re wondering why our episodes jumped, you can catch up on the missing episode via our iTunes.Game News Assassin’s Creed 3 Ubisoft Contract Jeff Broadbent for the I Am Alive Soundtrack Tekken Makes 3D Debut with Tekken 3D Prime Edition Capcom Reveals 4 More Street Fighter X Tekken Characters As The Release Date Approaches Ghost Rider Co-Director to Adapt Twisted Metal [...]
Sony Pictures are reportedly negotiating a “7-figure deal” with Ghost Rider co-director Brian Taylor to write and direct a big screen adaptation of the Twisted Metal series. Taylor is no stranger to high-octane action having worked on both Crank movies, 2009’s Gamer and the recent adaptation of Jonah Hex. Marvel producers Avi and Ari Arad are also reported to be involved in the project. The pair are apparently working on an Uncharted movie too, so another Sony tie-in wouldn’t be all that surprising.
Fans of the series will probably hold some reservation over Taylor’s involvement- most of his movies have been distinctly average – but [...]
Is there such a thing as an overly creative mind? I don’t think so. During my Photoshop escapades this morning thoughts of the recently released game in the PlayStation franchise, Twisted Metal, and how it created so many great childhood memories could not escape my mind. Then I began to think of an iconic franchise on the other end of the spectrum, Gears of War, pure alien-killing awesomeness.
Thus, Twisted Gears of Metal was born! Imagine Sweet Tooth, a Gears soldier, taking on the Locust Horde in his ice cream truck. I can dig that! Coupling the longest-running PlayStation exclusives with one of the best-selling Xbox titles, however oxymoronic that may sound, could [...]

Christmas may have come and gone for another year, but it looks like Twisted Metal fans are still receiving some late gifts courtesy of series co-creator David Jaffe. As part of a selection of holiday messages on the Playstation Blog, Jaffe announced that “first printing” copies of Twisted Metal for the PS3 will contain a voucher code for the 2001 classic Twisted Metal: Black. While the download won’t be of the ‘HD remake’ variety, it’s still a thoughtful gesture that’s sure to please eagerly awaiting fans.
Twisted Metal is scheduled for release on February 14th, 2012.
In what should come as a bummer to fans of the series, it was announced on the PlayStation blog that the upcoming Twisted Metal reboot has been pushed back to early 2012.
Check out the awesome gameplay below, thanks to IGN. Twisted Metal will be available October 4th, 2011 exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
