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.

  • So skirting the fodder I've got another little irk to speak ill of...
    The new CoD maps dropped for "Elite" subscribers, all well and good, we knew this was happening. Being sucked in by it all I went to sign up, having seen the US$49.95/yr charge in all the screenshots and media. I booted up CoD, jumped into "Elite" went to purchase and.... that'll be $66.95 thank you very much.

    So it would seem the Aussie's are screwed once again... anyone that cares can jump over and see the current exchange rate has the AUD worth *more* than the USD! I'd be fine if it was say AUD$5 more but $20 is just ridiculous. Get your heads out of your butts and stop using Australia to fatten your profit margins.
