Twisted Metal Golden, Valentine's Day Is Gonna Be Bloody

Okay, so we didn't get it last year. Good things come to those who wait.

One of our most anticipated games of 2012 is Twisted Metal, which is bound to generate plenty of excitement on Valentine's Day. And that's because, as simply announced at the Eat Sleep Play Twitter feed, the long-awaited entry has gone gold! Oh man, we can't wait.

Initially slated for an October 4 launch, David Jaffe and Co. needed more time to refine and polish; the boss man specifically said the game wasn't ready last fall. Now the lights are green across the board and it's time to hit the blood-spattered streets of TM once more! There is no Collector's Edition but remember, first-run copies of the game will include the PS2 classic, Twisted Metal: Black, at no extra charge. It's a damn good game even today.

And just because it was so freakin' cool, just to get you pumped up (if you need the extra boost), here's that E3 2010 announcement commercial:

Gah, I'm so pumped. I'll be up to my eyes in school work, but when I have time, I will be all over Twisted Metal! This is going to be pure multiplayer goodness with what I think is going to be one of the best shooters of this gen because it's so unique and so different from any other shooter on the market.

Twisted Metal Black Online was easily one of the best, most strategic, fast paced, intense and rewarding multiplayer components ever released.

I love being able to move around, to chase your opponent, to not die after a few hits. It's time for something away from the norm to innovate the online shooter. Jaffe and company are going to do it here! Say what you will about the story (for the most part looks silly and over the top which TM2 and TM1 were should be fun), but the gameplay is going to be first rate!

I cant wait to see the commercials for this game. Jaffe did a behind the scenes video on the blog that had him playing a homeless man and had a real sweet tooth in the desert.

OK, to be honest I was a little late to the Playstation party and didn't get one till late into the PS2 lifespan and because of this I never played any of these games though I remember friends having them. That being said, the more I see for this game the more interested I become. That commercial might have even sold me!

I can't wait... too bad all you get for pre-ordering is axle, too bad there is not a limited/collecters pack. can't complain at least the game will finally be released.

They should change that It only does everything catch phrase. It stopped being true when they removed backward compatibility :P

But im really looking forward to this. I tried playing some old twisted metal and Vigilante 8 again but it kinda sux now because of the dated engine. They didnt age well like some other games...
