This is not a moment you screw with, Activision. This is scripture. This is the ultimate chapter in the Book of Optimus. This is not — I cannot stress this enough — not an advertisement for GameStop exclusive preorder downloadable content.
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.
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.
What could be bigger than a new Transformers game featuring Grimlock, king of the Dinobots? How about five robots combining into one mechanical titan? According to GameStop, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron finally gives us combiners.
It's a good thing the Autobots, Decepticons, and the rest of their ilk are sentient robots. It would be an absolute nightmare to pilot them if they weren't.
