If you want to hear more from David and Scott soon, you're in luck: they'll be speaking *today* at Comic-Con. They'll be revealing some of the characters of the new game, share early looks at the game's twisted end stories, and show concept art of ideas that never saw the light of day.
The "Twisted Metal Returns!" panel starts at 1PM this afternoon in Room 8. It should be awesome in person but, if you're not going to be able to make it to Comic-Con,...
