Twisted Truth

For some reason, this is causing ripples in some media outlets.

Oh noes, a company kept a secret.
For those that don't know, Twisted Metal is a game where you get in a car and you blow the shit out of everyone else.  Nothing more, nothing less.  I think aside from a few PSP games, this series has been dead for the better part of a decade.  The last major release that came out was Twisted Metal Black, which released near the beginning of the PS2's life.  It was an ok game, it didn't really change what the game was.  It was just more pretty thanks to the PS2's hardware.

Now though, it seems people are still going apeshit at the thought of playing as Sweettooth again.  He's probably going to be an unlockable character again, and you'll probably have to do some asinine bullshit to unlock him again, and it will undoubtedly give you a trophy or 2 for doing so (its going to be a PS3 exclusive.  sorry everyone else).  Personally, I think the series has gone nowhere but downhill since the second game, but that could just be me getting tired of the same rehashed formula.

So, as to the lieing...  Big deal.  Let it go.  People like surprises.

When Nintendo demos a new Legend of Zelda game, and then no Zelda game is seen for 3 years, and when it is, its some Saturday morning cartoon shit, its not seen as a lie, but a surprise to games around the world?  Wrong, that's the lie that should be talked about.  But no, things like that are taken as standard now, so no one talks about them anymore.

Honestly, the news story here should be that they actually KEPT their secret.  That's pretty rare today.
