95w ago - Producer Chad Cox has made available a Weapons Training video today for Twisted Metal on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Starting today, we're introducing a video series we call "Twisted Metal University." The goal: Get you up to speed in time for Twisted Metal's February 14th release. That's less than a week away, so we'll have to move fast!
In today's chaotic episode, you'll be (re)introduced you to some of Twisted Metal's fiendish firepower, starting with the EMP Blast, Absorption Shield, Mines, and more. This video also gives you a primer on choosing the right sidearm, whether it's the flesh-shredding shotgun, the devastating magnum revolver, the heat-seeking Swarmer rocket launcher, or the all-powerful Mega Gun.
With a little luck, and a lot of pluck, you'll catapult yourself to the top of the multiplayer leaderboards this February 14th.
Check back soon to learn more killer tricks and tactics for this long-awaited revival.
104w ago - Today Sony Community Manager Phil Wang has revealed the Infantry Weapons available in DUST 514 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: The handheld weapons are a key part of any MMOFPS and DUST 514 is no exception. There were a few things that were very important to us.
Firstly, we wanted to avoid the feeling of "Vietnam in space" that you sometimes see in sci-fi games. The goal was to create weapons that had recognizable roles but used more advanced technologies than the equivalent weapons of today.
The power of these guns would tear apart a modern day battlefield. In DUST 514 the only way your mercenary can survive the power of these weapons is due to the advanced shielding and armor of the dropsuits they wear. Without them, simply firing these weapons would severely injure or even kill you!
Secondly, it was important to us that the weapons felt like a natural part of the EVE universe. In the same way that the ships in EVE have distinct racial designs and specialties, the weapons of DUST 514 had to encapsulate the values and technology of the race that created them.

You may even get to operate heavy-duty industrial saws - perfect for disposing masses of zombies with (personal safety measure - keep your distance from the cutting end while operating heavy industrial equipment).
