News: Video Game Releases

This is where we put out some info about the games we think are going to be somewhere between decent and awesome that release today or later this week.  Typically we skip over the heavy hitters.  Sorry Call of Duty, but 8 million people usually already know about your release date.

Transformers Fall of Cybertron – 360/PC/PS3

Buy on Amazon

Developed by High Moon (Transformers War for Cybertron, Darkwatch) and published by Activision.  The original Transformers War for Cybertron was pretty awesome so hopefully this one will only get better.  Unfortunately they’ve removed the campaign co-op but they have at least kept the multiplayer.  If nothing else, the single player missions will play tighter since the developers only had to worry about one bot’s abilities.  If you’ve never played a High Moon Transformers and you’re a Transformer fan (read as G1, Beast Wars, G2, etc) then do yourself a favor and pick this up.

Mech History: Transformers War for Cybertron

Mechs, robots, AI’s the only difference.  They’re still giant awesome metal mechanical machinations.  Any who, ever wonder how much reference and design was taken from actual Transformers series and comics?  Good.  I can write good there because if you answered “no” then you’ve already closed out this article.  So here’s three bits of trivia.   Without further ado!

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. Then a beam lands between them with the location of the Mini-Cons on earth. And our story begins with these two factions racing to see who can reclaim the Mini-Cons first.
