That "static" really is.. urgh..

Posted by JackSukeru

So this isn't based on the movies then? cause if it was then the transformers wouldn't look like cars yet.

Edited by Jayzilla

why is anyone excited for this? why are they releasing this? Also if it is prior to first contact wit Earth, why are they turning into vehicles from Earth? This falls short in all aspects.

While I still don't understand why making a game with 80's style characters is impossible, at least it's not using the shitty trash style of the movies, so it's already better by default.  The only issue is that pre-Earth Transformers has been done several times in other media, and it's all conflicting designs with no concrete evidence to what is considered canon.  So while it makes it easy to do whatever they want without fucking up the timeline, it will generate some nerd rage when it doesn't use the previous works, similar to how stupid Star Wars can get with its off-screen bullshit.
 
Maybe Activision can convince Takara to add the PS2 game as a bonus - maybe a pre-order incentive or something.  While the gameplay was shit, it at least was the last time the original G1 characters were used, and that made it bearable.
 
It's also been reported that there are already toys planned for the game, so it's going to be pushed heavily.

I'm excited just because they didn't go with the ridiculous Michael Bay designs.
 
And FYI, they aren't turning into vehicles from earth, they're just turning into vehicles. Seriously, have you seen Optimus's vehicle form on earth? If so, please tell me which car company it's from. Cause I don't believe it.

Good To See They Are Stepping Away From The Movies Plot Line But Not a Big Enough One.

The guys who made Darkwatch and The Bourne Conspiracy making a Transformers game that takes place on Cybertron? 
 
Color me interested...

Edited by Deusoma

Oh man.
Oh man.
Could it be? A Transformers game...
That's actually good?
 
It's too bad it doesn't use the designs from the movies, but I won't let that colour my view of it.

Let's hope they can somehow write a compelling Cybertron story and we're already beyond whatever it was the recent movies had on offer.
Posted by Paintedelta

ohhh looks kind of kool. I hope its an RTS like halo wars.

sure is MICHAEL BAY

I want this too be good. As a child of the 80's its been a long time coming to get a real TF game that actualy plays well. I dont have high hopes though.

Sweet! Cgi and fight scenes that i doubt have anything to do with actual gameplay! 
Mass effect 2=for squares 
buy this mofos

Is it just my shitty connection or was that a really awful trailer that kept skipping? As An Aussielander I think it is more shitty connection, But, from what I saw, looks epic.

No matter how much, I want to see this game be good....that's not very likely now is it. But hey, maybe it won't suck (that's going quite the stretch but you never know).

Edited by SimonM7

The notion of a good transformers game is far from alien. The Armada game for PS2 was actually quite sublime. Marred, granted, by being associated with one of the lamer iterations of Transformers, but a good game nonetheless.
 
I hate this trailer though. I hate it because it fundamentally takes the same "let's borrow a little from every generation and make our own videogame version of it that rocks" philosophy route that Arkham Asylum did, and by that association makes me... hopeful!! This is highly irresponsible on Acti's part, because I'm sure - and am sure they know - it won't be good.
 
But here I'm stuck, hoping. :(

How is it that Optimus Prime is the shape of a truck if this is before they make first contact on earth? He has never seen a truck. Dont take me wrong, I loved the Transformers when I was a kid but now, it seems this franchise needs a reboot. Hope the game is good.

Transformers for the PS2 is, and will always be, the best Transformers game.... ever.

Posted by Seedofpower

Hasbro?? The toy company? huh

Posted by Siris

so... driving, transforming, and weapons will be in the game. Apart from that this doesn't really get me excited to see a new transformers game after all the previous failures. I like that its separate from the movie franchise, like some pointed out. Also, the fact that they can transform into cars pre-Earth is cool if it works in the gameplay, because as we all know GAMES DON'T HAVE TO MAKE SENSE! As long as its fun, who cares.

Looks horrible.
Posted by BlazeHedgehog

That sure was a lot of gameplay footage.

Posted by CounterShock

Looks like it could be good I guess. The Revenge of the Fallen game was alright

Posted by Zereta

A game that is not tied to a movie... 
 
*Looks at Batman: Arkham Asylum* 
 
There may yet be hope...

Is that Omega Supreme at the back? 
 
 
Fuck it, I'm sold.

Posted by Lydian_Sel

Oh please tell me Judd Nelson will be doing voice work for this game!!!!!

Why do Transformers need to transform when on Cybertron?

Looks nice. Hopefully it goes some way to making up for those awful awful movies.  
 
Though i'm not so sure with the new look of the Bots.

Not a fan of the Atari game from a few years ago then? I enjoyed it anyway.

The Armada game? Nah, it played ok but it was based on armada and that was shit so I didnt get into it.

Well if it's not tied to a movie it's a step in the right direction.

Well if you want to get technical, Optimus Prime was originally a worker bot on Cybertron so his vehicle could still be a truck to haul things.

Is that big guy Omega Supreme?

Posted by Godlyawesomeguy

Do we really need another one?

I'm interested but I want to see Blurr in it.

ya and even if they still transform from some kind of craft to them selfs, they would not pick a weak "Human" truck/car over a space fighter or some sort of jet craft. heck even a hover truck/car would be better... facepalm lawl

High Moon did Darkwatch and Bourne Conspiracy, two pretty decent games so I've got high hopes for this. No pun intended. :)

I wonder who the big robot is...
