This is the forum to discuss all of those video games you love playing or that are coming out. From Transformers video games to Fighting games to Sports games ... whatever makes you a happy Seibertronian. Just keep it the topics and conversations game and console related.
The legendary Insecticons are now live for the TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON multiplayer community and we have a bunch of new screenshots for them:
Starting today, Fall of Cybertron players on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC can download the Massive Fury Pack, which includes the following multiplayer characters, which includes their full body + individual body parts for use in the multiplayer character creator. It also includes the following single-player campaign items: KICKBACK (Flying Insecticon) SHARPSHOT (Flying Insecticon) HARDSHELL (Beetle Tank Insecticon) G1 RETRO OPTIMUS PRIME AUTOBOT HOUND Single-Player campaign items: G2 BRUTICUS (character skin) G1 SHOCKWAVE BLAST CANNON (weapon) G1 MEGATRON PISTOL GUN (weapon)
Here is our DLC trailer with an in-game look at the characters in action, along with all the current DLC available:
Motto:"For I have dipped my hands in muddied waters, and, withdrawing them, find 'tis better to be a commander than a common man!"
Weapon: Dark Saber Sword
So we can get them all in one setting for 800 Microsoft points, right?
I went to download it this morning, I found you could only download the individual parts for the Insecticons at 80 Microsoft points each, plus Hound's parts and G2 Bruticus never even showed up on the download-selection screen. Pretty much ruined my morning; hoping HMS will make it up to me and have the full pack for download when I get on tonight.

i dont understand how they can justify selling each pack for $10 when each has a different amount of stuff in it. The previous packs had 4 characters where as this one has a bunch of stuff including the G1 preorder paack. Also think they'd be better off just selling each cahracter individually cause there are going to be people out that who arent going to get the cause they already have the pre-order G1 pack or they only want one character and arent going to pay $10 to get it. DLC is overrated & overpriced, very few companies know how to handle DLC these days.
For post 1.... G1 Prime is available to play in single player. I don't know why they don't mention it. I have the preorder pack, and I can confirm that.
Secondly, MegatronWolf, I think the fact that people already have the preorder stuff is why this pack is the same price as the dinobot pack. Think of it as getting the preorder stuff for free when you buy the pack of 4 MP characters. I imagine they didn't want to charge people for something they already have. Also, I'm not sure about PS3, but on Xbox you can buy all the characters seperately if you want. It's in the Character Creation, and in stead of charging Energon Chips, or whatever it is, you spend money on the parts you want. I bought the last pack as soon as it was up, so I'm not positive that it works that way on PS3.

They may be novices in online services but this quote from Nintendo President Satoru Iwata is very promising:
And one thing Nintendo has determined as a company policy, what we are not going to do is create a full game and then say, ‘let's hold this back for DLC.' That's not our plan. We're definitely not doing that. It's an extreme example, but I think there are examples of games where you get that initial purchase - the very core part of the game - and everything else around it is all DLC. However, if you do that I believe customers will have no motivation to go out and buy the retail package to begin with.
Day 1 DLC with FOC was a joke. There is no reason that should have been held back for DLC. At least I got it free when I downloaded the PS3 version from the store. I also hate when companies rerelease a game with Game of the Year editions that come with all the DLC in one package.
