Video Games - Twisted Metal - Meat Wagon


The Twisted Metal franchise is back (for those living under a rock). The lastest release is the first title in over 7 years. But I think it's well worth the wait. The game has a short but interesting story told through chapters. I have to say it's defiantly a treat for the adults (sorry kids it's a little rough). If you were a fan of series from back in the day then check this out. I think you'll find some interesting vehicles. I know I did. After playing for a while I found a few cars I liked. But one really stuck out. That was Meat Wagon. If you look at the photos above and below you can see why. Meat wagon has a resemblance to the Ghostbusters ECTO 1. That's because it's based off a 1959 Miller Meteor Cadillac ambulance. Sorry Meat Wagon's special ability is not a proton back. But a more morbid form of artillery. That being some poor guy with a bomb strapped down to a gurney. The gurney can be launched from the front or behind. The nearest target will receive the blast. The gurney used primary automatically homes in, but secondary the player can guide the gurney. Pretty neat stuff. According to Twisted Metal Wiki The original concept art for Meat Wagon was a very modern looking ambulance. Glad the team went with this direction. Makes for a great On Screen Car. A real conversation piece. Haven't played Twisted Metal for the PS3 yet? Then be sure to check it out on Amazon. This game make for a great game night. Especially the co-op and death-match modes. I know my friends and I did enjoy this one.

Dirt 3 - Gymkhana Gameplay


I'm sure you've spent hours hovering over the replay of Ken Block's Gymkhana videos. I know we have. If you're not familiar with rally/stunt car driver Ken Block, check out his video below. Just so much going on. The man is a drifting genius. Makes you wanta get right out there and fire up your Ford Fiesta and give it a go? Well that's about where the fantasy ends. Seriously, how many of us could soup up their ride with all the mods necessary and still drive it work everyday. But maybe there's an alternative way to experience Gymkhana. Enter the latest installment of the Dirt 3 off-road racing game. Dirt 3 offers a huge world of different off-road racing modes. But the one we're gonna look at today is the Gymkhana mode. The game offers an intense training program for you to learn the art of Gymkhana. You'll master the drifting skills necessary to do some of the tricks Ken does in real life. Then once you're ready. You'll move on to the Play Ground. On Play Ground, you're free to go wild. You can challenge your friends by setting the clock and see who can do the most moves in the time aloud. This open ended form of game play makes for some interesting gaming parties. Reminds me of sitting around with the guys goofing around on GTA (non-mission mode). This time with a little more purpose. Till next time. Keep your tires in check.
