Along with getting into Twisted Metal and car combat games the crew tackles a wide range of topics including a look at Shacknews's Game of Year winners, the different ways gamers see the balance in games between narrative and mechanics, more hands-on experiences with the Vita, and more. Buckle up; it's one helluva ride to the Finishing Moves.
