Twisted Metal Gets "Tainted" Launch Trailer, Drops Online Co-Op

I know that many of you were preoccupied with your true love yesterday (the Mass Effect 3 demo), so you may have missed the return of the Twisted Metal franchise.  I was able to spurn Commander Shepard's advances long enough to get some quality time in with the car combat title.  After looking over the game's many multiplayer modes I realized I didn't have a clue as to how to set up an online co-op campaign match.  I knew the game supported online co-op, TM head honcho David Jaffe told me so (via Game Informer).  I sure as hell wasn't going to consult the manual, so I sought help from the almighty Google.

Two Sweet Twisted Metal Videos Showcasing Sweet Bot

In case you missed it, we got some hands-on time with the upcoming Twisted Metal reboot, nostalgically  titled Twisted Metal.  We were excited to see a vehicle transform into a walking death-bot.  We were doubly excited to hear that the game will have a cooperative campaign.  The following videos focus on the maniacal ice cream truck driver, Sweet Tooth.  Fans of the old games will be able to pick out the bizarrely distorted laugh that the character was known for.  You can also see some of the Capture the Leader and Boss elements mentioned in our preview.

E3 2011 - Twisted Metal Hands-On Preview

On the third day of E3, Nick and I had a joint appointment at the Sony booth/building.  He got some hands-on time with Resistance 3 and we both played a co-op round of Uncharted 3 (preview forthcoming).  But what really piqued my interest was the Twisted Metal re-boot.  The first Twisted Metal came out when I was in high school, and I was curious to see how the re-boot would handle the series.
