I don't need to see Optimus Prime or Megatron. They can save the large scale battles for future trailers. Hell, I don't even need color. Just give me Grimlock and I'm good.

All I really know about the next Transformers game from the developers of War for Cybertron is that combiners might make an appearance, the plot sounds eerily similar to the previous game, and it's got Grimlock. That last bit alone is enough for me to forgive the seemingly repeating plot and the fact that Cybertronian Grimlock is somehow a dinosaur. If it really bugged me that much I would have complained about Trypticon in the last one, but that prehistoric bird has flown.

So, anyone else sold already?
