Has anyone played the demo?

As a person that in general doesn't enjoy music, I have to say. Holy crap on the stick does the title screen get me pumped.

Am I alone on this?

Edit: Someone posted it to youtube finally.

Agh I don't have the demo. Record it for me!

@SexyToad: Sure thing.

Edit: Youtube recording of it is up now, much better than my capture on Twitch, removing references to my twitch channel in the thread to avoid chances of someone misinterpreting it as advertising.

You're right. I'm also not one who's that much into music, but I could imagine myself remaining on that title screen just to listen to that.

Didn't spend long in the main menu, but all I heard was an Inception horn knockoff that every fucking title song has to have now-a-days.

Welp, that sounds generic as hell. 
 
Time for me to save this thread with the most hype title screen music in years.

Sounds alright! That inception horn is still pretty terrible though.

Wait, wh--BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM--did yo--BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM--I CAN'T HEA--BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM--ah, FUCK IT!

Was impressed/amused to not only find the Inception horn, but also Williams-esque heroic horns and ominous choral chants.

It's like it's desperately trying to sound like the Michael Giacchino score to Star Trek until the very last note.

@Vegetable_Side_Dish: I disagree with you feeling the Fall of Cybertron music is bad, but the Patapon 3 title screen was pretty excitement pumping.

Can someone post a youtube link of it on here? Would be nice to listen to it.

@Phatmac: I was hoping to find one, as the audio didn't capture great in my video from my Twitch account. I was unsuccessful.

Didn't bother to do my due dilligence and actually listen to the thing, but as long as it isn't...
... Stan Bush - The Touch...
...it's just not living up to the task.

btw. am I the only one who finds the circumstance of G1 Optimusbeing a GameStop preorder exclusive to be a sacrilege? Also - that so doesn't sound like Starscream, it hurts.

@Seppli: I am disappointed in the G1 Optimus being a Gamespot exclusive, since I plan on getting the steam version.

I'm also exceedingly saddened to find out they took out the Co-op campaign.

I imagine they will eventually release G1 Optimus to everyone after awhile. Didn't High Moon do that for the last Transformers game?

I see your Fall of Cybertron title music and raise you one Space Marine main theme:

I dig what they've got going on there, though. Not too shabby.

Is there a genre for this kind of music that evokes a feeling of triumph? Is it "epic"? Because I enjoy this title screen music as well and it's relatively similar:

Meh, didn't evoke much of a reaction from me. There is a shitload of better music out there, sorry to hear that you're missing out.

That was pretty good, glad to hear they're sinking some production value into this thing. The rhythmic section in the middle reminded me of this track from the movie around 1:00 - maybe I'm imagining things.

Removed references to my twitch channel. Someone finally has a better capture of it in Youtube. Embedded on opening post.

It's not bad but its somewhat generic bombast.

I rushed over to PSN to grab the demo after seeing this thread a week ago and was super disappointed. I assumed it was going to be another Stan Bush jam like the ending credits for WFC. Before anyone jumps down my throat that was indeed Stan Bush.

Man, I was hoping for a cool rendition of the classic Transformers theme song. But that title theme was pretty cool and intense as well.

Speaking of cool renditions of the classic Transformers theme song, the band MUTEMATH came up with one for the first Michael Bay Transformers film.

Was thinking the same thing. Which reminds me, I need to catch up on Transformers: Prime

That is actually really good, but for me Halo 2 still has the best menu music.
