But only because Arcee looks halfway decent in the screens for the game, coming to 3DS, DS and Wii this October. I know I gave you guys shit earlier, but you have found my weakness.

I'm in the middle of reading through IDW's excellent run of Transformers comic books, which might account for my soft spot for Arcee, there a tortured, conflicted robotic being that was a test subject in granting mechanical life gender.


In the Transformers Prime Hub cartoon she's a little tortured as well, having lost two partners (at least) in her Autobot career, which leads her to form a motherly, protective relationship with her teenage human sidekick, an entertaining dynamic that's only amplified when the teen's human mother shows up. Finally a parent that's curious about what the hell their child is doing traipsing about all day with the Autobots. No, Buster Witwicky doesn't count.

But yes, I will buy the 3DS version of Transformers Prime, developed by Now Production and published by Activision this fall. Arcee has earned you a sale.

Of course that means the game will be in the hands of one of the franchises harshest video game critics, but it's excellent, right? RIGHT?
