Fahey wasn't too fond of the remixed "The Touch" that played during the credits for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron last year, the credits only offered an excerpt. Today, Stan Bush released the entire thing. Does the additional context make it better?
The late 80s was the best time to be a toy-obsessed child. Back then toy companies weren't afraid to release a toy that looked like a gun, contained toxic paint or weighed more than the kids it was being marketed to. It was a time when Hasbro, a couple years after releasing a toy aircraft carrier that measured more…
It looked like any other boring old email. But, as noted by Reddit user Sarranoob, it was anything but. It was an email in disguise.
When I first discovered the titanic Autobot Metroplex would be making an appearance in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, I experienced a brief rush of excitement—maybe Hasbro would make a new proper Metroplex toy! They'd reused the name for a silly giant from the Transformers: Cybertron line, why not?
The recent introduction of the Dinobots to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron's multiplayer seems to have been a rousing success. Now comes the time of the Insecticons.
The single-player portion of the PC version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is pretty great, capturing all of the action and adventure of the console versions aptly. The online multiplayer, on the other hand, isn't so hot. High Moon and friends are working to make it better.
What's the most power combiner team in the Transformers universe? The fierce and relentless Predaking? The cool and calculating Computron? The eagle-elephant-lion Magnaboss? As far as Fall of Cybertron is concerned, it's Reviewertron, guardian of Metacritic.
When the end credits rolled for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron I was pretty sure High Moon Studios was actively engaging in fan trolling. Specifically fans of Stan Bush's Transformers the Movie anthem, "The Touch".
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron tells the story of the last days of a dying planet. It's the tale of two warring factions reaching out across the cosmos for the sake of survival. To fans of the franchise, this is a historical account of a fixed point in time, the outcome of which is predetermined.
The official launch trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron signals the end of the planet of the robots, at least for a few million years, depending on the continuity you follow.
Matt Tieger is the game director on the next Transformers game. That's probably a fun job, but let's not assume anything. How about you ask him yourself?
The Xbox 360 demo for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is now live in North America. The PlayStation 3 version drops tomorrow.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron's online multiplayer mode allows players to create their own bastardized versions of classic characters, from a guy that looks vaguely like Warpath to a puke green and brass Optimus Prime. Customization, Starscream? This is bad comedy.
In the latest Transformers video game, you'll get to control Autobots and Decepticons battling it out as their home planet dies all around them. The new multiplayer modes coming to Fall of Cybertron are pretty intense.
That's not to degrade the rest of the game, which is due out this fall. It looks just fine. It's just a testament to how glorious Metroplex is. I mean, transforming into a fighter jet or a truck is cool, I guess, but transforming into a city? That's how you get stuff done.
Transformers is not just about giant robots shooting other giant robots. It's about giant robots shooting other giant robots with character. During a presentation of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron last week, High Moon Studios showed me a fast-paced action game filled with rich characters that never came across as…
The music choice is...regrettable, but everything else in this trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is almost perfect.
Downloadable content. Everyone hates it—but everyone buys it. We haven't had a look in a long while at the extensions and pre-order bonuses designed to crowbar money from you or direct you to spend it at a retailer you wouldn't otherwise. Can you still respect yourself if you go along with it?
Earlier this year High Moon Studio's game director Matt Tieger told me his team couldn't handle making a PC version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, and PC gamers were a little upset. High Moon still can't handle creating a PC version, but High Moon Studios and developer Mercenary Games working together are getting…
How the mighty have fallen. Once the proud leader of the Autobots, an instantly-recognizable hero in either of his iconic forms, and now he's a mere preorder bonus. Not just that; he's a retailer exclusive preorder bonus. Now who will light our darkest hour?
