Present aim: Win the event and have my want granted
Play it on: The PlayStation Plus Classics catalog
This previous week, Twisted Metallic and Twisted Metallic 2 got here to the PlayStation Plus Classics catalog. The timing is curiously handy, contemplating a Peacock TV collection primarily based on the long-dormant vehicular fight franchise is about to debut. I feel that collection appears to be like horrible and I’ve lower than little interest in watching it. Nonetheless, I additionally assume that Twisted Metallic 2 is likely one of the greatest video games of all time, so if company cross-promotional synergy is what it takes to as soon as once more have this explosive, gleefully chaotic sport be available to me on a console, effectively, I’ll take it.
It’s been effectively over 20 years since I actually performed the sport, so I’m wanting ahead to refamiliarizing myself with its memorable and diversified solid of drivers, its cacophonous soundscape, and its blistering motion. I’m additionally desperate to as soon as once more expertise the outrageous destruction you possibly can wreak on its levels. (I don’t bear in mind how to destroy the Eiffel Tower within the Paris stage, however I bear in mind that you may.) I’ll in all probability play by your complete factor with a number of totally different characters to see a number of endings play out. See, in these video games, the event is run by a mysterious determine named Calypso, who guarantees to grant the winner a single want. When he does so, nonetheless, there’s at all times one thing a little bit (you guessed it!) twisted about it, and it’s darkly humorous seeing how issues play out for every driver. I guess the writing for these endings is extra intelligent than something we’ll see within the Peacock collection.
Wait a second! What if I needed so arduous for Twisted Metallic 2 to come back again that Calypso granted my want however deemed that it may solely occur if we additionally obtained a horrible live-action collection? Oh god, no! What have I finished?!—Carolyn Petit
