Here's Stan Bush Rebooting His Iconic Transformers Anthem, 'The Touch'

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? » 12/15/13 1:00pm 12/15/13 1:00pm

The Largest Transformer Ever Made, Until Metroplex Ruins Everthing

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… » 5/16/13 9:00pm 5/16/13 9:00pm

Two Foot Tall Metroplex Makes My Transformers Dreams Come True This…

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? » 2/09/13 10:30pm 2/09/13 10:30pm

Seven Game Critics Combine to Form a Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

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. » 8/22/12 12:00pm 8/22/12 12:00pm

Arise, Hideous Prime, and Light Our Darkest Multiplayer Hour

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. » 7/25/12 8:30am 7/25/12 8:30am

Metroplex is Still the Best Thing About the New Transformers Game

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. » 7/05/12 12:30am 7/05/12 12:30am

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Breathes New Life Into Classic…

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… » 6/14/12 3:30pm 6/14/12 3:30pm

The Week in Evil DLC

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.

There's a PC Version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron After All

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… » 6/01/12 4:00pm 6/01/12 4:00pm
