There's just something about a summer blockbuster the gets the blood pumping and the brain craving more, even if it's just more crap. Well, if it's more Transformers: Age of Extinction crap you're looking for, Activision and Mobage have you covered.
When people ask me what Lightning Returns is like, I always respond that it's a lot like Final Fantasy X-2. A lot of people seem to take this as an insult to Lightning Returns. It's not.

Buggy penis physics: check out Eurogamer's story on Mount Your Friends, the competitive climbing game where your character's genitals spin like windmills. Apparently, this is a feature that was not actually originally intended. Thank god for bugs!
