Videogame Review: Transformers (2004)

Time to Roll Out that PS2 and play us some Transformers. WARNING SPOILERS!!! Yes I will speak of things that if you have not played the game or watched the TV shows or also the movies.

You start out with a beautiful cutscene on Cybertron showing the epic battle between Autobots and Decepticon, Megatron vs. Prime.

This week we start a new once a month series where we focus on horror media. Later horror episode themes will be vampires, werewolves, and zombies but this week we just talk about horror in general.

We did wind up for talking a lot longer than we meant to so we split it into two 1.5 hour episodes for your listening ease. We’ll get the hang of keeping this thing under two hours somday! In part 1, we talk about movies. In part 2, we talk about printed media and videogames.
