Compilated on September 17, 2006 around 2:37am EST and 
finished on Spetember 19, 2006 around 2:28pm EST. Decided 
to do a non-fighting and classic gameof a series in particular 
within the PlayStation/Saturn/Nintendo 64 era so I decided 
to pay homage to Twisted Metal because that game rocked.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Contest History:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is Christmas Eve, 2005...and in a few moments the 
legendary TWISTED METAL competition will begin.

Deep within his stronghold far beneath the streets of 
Los Angeles, the contest's demented creator, a man 
who calls himself Calypso, watches and waits...

He is prepared to pay the winner ANY prize he or she 
requests. No matter how rare. No matter how costly.  
No matter the consequences.

A dozen competitors have been personally selected 
by Calypso to do combat in the tenth running of the 
TWISTED METAL competition. They come from 
every background...Assassins, Mercenaries, Vigilantes, 
Professional Drivers, Social Misfits and Joyriders...all 
are out for one thing tonight, the chance to battle for 
their ultimate dream.

Tonight, one dream will come true.

I am confused.  You are only asking for THIS?!?''

Calypso holds a crumpled up paper bag in his hands.

''I can offer you ANYTHING, Sweet Tooth!  Money, fame, 
even power...you dare INSULT ME!?!'' Calypso screams.

But your mind is made up. Ever since you escaped from the 
mental ward 5 years ago, you have been searching for this 
bag. Because, in your own twisted mind, this bag is much 
more than just a bag. Oh yes! It is...a friend! YES! The bag 
is CRAZY HAROLD THE WACKY LUNCH SACK!!! And
