Some games stay with you even when you're not playing them. Sometimes, you get so deeply into a game that you need to bring it with you on the go. You need to keep up with everything that's going on, and even looking over stats or reading through the game's encyclopaedia makes that time spent sitting on the bus more bearable.

These long, dark years of waiting are finally over as the latest entry in the Twisted Metal series goes gold. The vehicle combat spectacular races into our hearts on February 14, and it's bringing a love letter from multiplayer shooter Starhawk along for the ride. Pretty sweet, right?

I finally got around to playing Starhawk's beta, and while I am terrible at the game I do enjoy it a lot. During the beta you play 8v8 matches of Capture the Flag on two different maps. Constructing different buildings allows access to everything from Starhawks (a transforming mech/fighter jet suit) to anti-air turrets that help you defend your base.

The private beta for Starhawk, the spiritual descendant of 2007's downloadable hit Warhawk will commence on Tuesday, says Sony Computer Entertainment America. The beta will be "slow-rolled," so those who don't get an invitation on day one, don't give up hope; one may be on the way soon.

Sony has posted a new video for Lightbox Interactive's upcoming Shooter/Builder/Flyer/Strategy hybrid Starhawk, which shows some serious building', shooting' action, as well as the excited reactions of a bunch of Comic Con attendees who got to play the game.
