Apatosaurus.

"Brontosaurus" never existed. Its discoverer thought apatosaurus and brontosaurus were separate species, but it turned out that the bronto was a sub-species of apatosaurus.

It's bizarre people still say "brontosaurus", when it was renamed way back in something like 1903.

In defense of HMS, I felt it was justified. There are five Dinobots, but four classes. Grimlock, Swoop, and Slag/Slug are more iconic, leaving them with a choice; Snarl or Sludge. Since Snarl better fits the Destroyer class, Sludge was dropped from the multiplayer chassis list.

cant they make more than one dinobot in the same class?
they have several autobots or decepticons in the same class
just saying

I've been treated by Bioware so nicely that it feels so weird to be buying MP DLC. Won't bite on any of this until they release new MP maps or smth.

Same here, except replace "Bioware" with "Bethesda".

The amount of free content Skyrim's had after release is just staggering (Space Core, mounted combat, hi-rez textures, new killcams), not to mention paid content like Dawnguard, to the point where paying $10 for content that's already on the disc (and therefore I've already paid for) just feels like highway robbery... which I guess it kinda sorta is.

Where are the Dinobots??

In the customisation menu there are the four dino's, locked, I'm prompted to the playstation store, and told that this item is not currently available?

I had no problem last night downloading the Dinobots DLC on the PS3. Try going through the store via the dashboard. Maybe there's something wonky with the connection between the game linking with the store.

If you're talking Xbox, mine downloaded code-free instantaneously this morning.


I think he means that what he downloaded only unlocked the content that already existed on the game disc. My download was only about 144KB or something really small like that. It was basically just downloading a verification to the game to unlock the DLC. The reason that this is infuriating is that we already bought the game disc and it's contents. HMS and Activision already included this DLC on the disc that we paid for, but you're only allowed to access it by paying more. That's like buying a car and not being able to go in reverse until you pay a little extra. The reverse mechanics are in the car already. Don't put it on the disc and people wouldn't have such a problem with it.

I've noticed that more and more this content is pushed out to all games via updates. That way you can see other people using the new skins, etc even if you do not own it. Then, if you buy the code, it is unlocked for you as well.

I think that is what happened here - I know my game has been 'updated' at least once. And a I read an article somewhere about them finishing some stuff up after going gold (including Dinobots I believe).

I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Best I can see is reduced prices, like they did the Halo 3 DLCs.

On-disc dlc? Tut, tut Activision. Of course they won't have to worry about the backlash Capcom have been getting recently because they know we'll just assume the position and take it.

I don't know why but I thought the Dinobot Destructor pack came with a special Dinobot Escalation level. Feels like they've missed a trick there. It could've come with a trophy/achievement, not for completeing the fifteenth wave but for having to restart a single wave. They could've called it "Leading this menagerie will be difficult..."

It should be. I understand the individual developers and companies need to make the extra cash, but as a gamer who plays alot - the DLC for games, and the amount out there is astounding - especially if you need that DLC to play with others who have it. The concept of free multiplayer DLC.. I view it as beneficial because 3-4 months down the road, a person would probably be more willing to pay for the regular game, and get straight into the multiplayer without worrying about not having anyone to play with because he's just got the bare bones game.

But this is Activision, lol, yeah right.

Yeah, thinking about it... if we buy the game AND the three DLC packs. We've ALMOST doubled the price we paid for the game, just to get some extra skins that should have come with the game.

At $10, I feel MUCH better buying add ons with some escalation map, subplot, animation, story included WITH the characters.

$5=skins
$10=map & skins

YES! This. I'll be hella disappointed if we don't get a full set of five dinobots and three insecticons. Maybe they'll pull a page from FansProject's book and give us some Deluxe Insecticon recolors.

Sad to say, but the prototype 3rd party vehicle mold retools (shown at TFCon) of the insects in Cybertron mode look much better than the fuzzy, pointy version of Kickback we have coming from Hasbro. I like to envision the pre-earth mode of bots more like that, with turrets and tank treads and drillers and armor... more like War Within Grimlock.

I wish we could see a whole line of meched-out heavy armor missile battery gerwalk looking tank tread sportingTransformers... each of the main characters pushed that direction. Sad to say we'll probably have to look to the games and/or 3rd party for anything like that.

Agreed. I've already stopped buying the Transformer toys due to the ridiculous prices. I won't hesitate to stop buying game DLC if they keep upping the price vs what it's worth. The third installment will probably be $15 for a 4/5 character pack. No thanks.
