Well, this is interesting.
We asked our readers if they were excited about the impending launch of Twisted Metal ; last week's poll let participants rate their excitement level on a scale of 1 to 5. The odd part is that almost exactly the same number of gamers voted for the highest and lowest anticipation levels.
This means the community is split right down the middle, so we're not about to attempt a result interpretation. On the positive side, this means a great many are pumped for the return of an iconic franchise; on the other hand, just as many really don't care in the slightest. In the past, we've often worried about the relevance of the name "Twisted Metal" in a very different industry that features more casual gamers than ever before; younger, less ardent gamers who may have never heard of the name.
Remember, David Jaffe said the game needed to sell at least a million copies just to break even, so here's hoping… Anyway, this week, we focus on the biggest release of 2011 thus far- Final Fantasy XIII-2 . Currently, based on 15 reviews at Metacritic, it's hovering around 80 or 81; did you expect higher or lower? Or was that about what you expected?
