Another generation of video game consoles approaches, whether we’re ready for them or not. At E3 2019 Microsoft offered a peek at their next console, code named Project Scarlett, and revealed that it would arrive in time for the 2020 holiday season.
Of course Sony also has a new console on the way, and now they’ve confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will also be arriving in 2020. The announcement was made by Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan, and you can read what he had to say below.
Sony has made a massive announcement. We’ve expected some sort of video game streaming option to allow fans to play older games (instead of making their latest console, the PlayStation 4, backwards compatible) for some time now after the announcement that they had acquire streaming service Gaikai. Now the company has made things official, announcing PlayStation Now.
Details will surely be coming as time goes on, but for right now, here’s what we do know: they’re aiming very high. Basically, PS Now will offer gamers the ability to play previous generation PlayStation titles—PlayStation, PS2, and PS3—on not just their consoles, but on various platforms. In fact, you’ll eventually even have the option of using the service to play full PlayStation titles on non-Sony devices, such as your smartphone or tablet. Yikes.

In the mid ’90s, a little video game called Twisted Metal ruled the PlayStation gaming system. This game allowed you to be many different characters with many different types of ridiculous vehicles and weapons, and basically just unleash hell on each other in all-out vehicular battle. It’s basically one of the godfathers to what gamers do every single day in online multiplayer death matches, and that makes it special.
Over the years, more Twisted Metal titles were released on the PlayStation, PS2, and PSP systems but none have really stood out since 2001’s Twisted Metal: Black, leaving fans of the series really wanting something new and exciting.
Enter E3 2010 and the surprise arrival of Eat Sleep Play’s David Jaffe and Scott Campbell, as well as a certain terrifying ice cream truck.
Drive and shoot your way over to the other side to see what they’ve been working on for the brand new Twisted Metal!
I had always loved the Metal Gear series and I finally found Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater at a Gamecrazy nearby. Honestly this game was one of the most thrilling games I have ever played and I cherish this game for its greatness. The graphics were amazing, especially because this game was for PS2 so that made me happy from the start. The game play was quite good, but some things were a little aggravating, like how I would always have to check if the food I captured was good enough to eat or if it was going to poison me.
You go through the game as Jack, codenamed Snake, and after you get far enough in the game it isn’t just about saving the weapons expert and maker Sokolov. You are pretty much are guided through the game by Major Zero by Codec. Also if you need some help just press the select button and the Codec screen will show up. Then press down and you can contact Major Zero, Para-Medic, Signt, and The Boss. For those of you who don’t know who any of these characters are, you will learn about them in the game. I will tell who The Boss is though. The Boss is technically the greatest soldier in the world and taught everything she knew to Snake when he was just a young trainee. Then she disappeared for five years until this event happening in the game.
