In episode 11 of "Backwards Compatible," Lou and I dive into the chaotic world of "Twisted Metal 2," originally released on October 31, 1996. Kicking off the episode, we share our excitement about the latest trailers for the upcoming Power Rangers beat 'em up game and the new "Gears of War" prequel, setting the stage for our discussion on high-energy gaming.

As we shift gears to "Twisted Metal 2," we explore the game's memorable cast of characters and its creatively destructive environments, which have helped it stand as a definitive title in vehicular combat gaming. Lou, a longtime fan of the series, offers his pro-tips on how to master the game, from choosing the right vehicle to exploiting level-specific tactics. We also discuss modern games that capture a similar thrill to "Twisted Metal 2," in our "Scratch the Itch" segment, for those looking to recreate the mayhem in today’s gaming landscape. As is tradition, we wrap up the episode with a nod to the pop culture highlights from March 1994, providing a backdrop to the era when vehicular combat games were beginning to rev their engines in the gaming world. Join us for a high-octane trip down memory lane with one of the most explosively entertaining games of the '90s.
