Waaarghh!!!

That Jazz shot with the Ark on the background was awesome.
This game has some great atmosphere and I think it will appeal to a lot of gamers and transformers fans alike.
I met a few guys online playing WFC who bought the game because the trailer of FOC was looking so good :)
Transforming has always been a great gameplay element.
Also very happy that there's a FOC toyline, best TF design since... well I find it the best TF design to date, cool futuristic G1 inspired design ftw.

Looks great but why the "Bayformers" rip-off soundtrack??? These are video games... a new Vince DiCola score would go PERFECTLY. Why has no one thought of this? :BOOM:

I hope it did get moved up a week, that would be awesome! I'm not holding my breath until retail confirms it though. So glad they have host migration, it effn killed me whenever someone would bail on the game just because they got killed twice in a row.

I agree. Bayformers score should stay in the movies.

Maybe someone should do that so. Cinematic/anthem themes don't seem to blend well with this. :D

Surprised no one's mentioned this but, as G1-inspired the voices in these games have been, Metroplex sounds nothing like G1 Metroplex did. :P

And, it almost looked as though see the Ark get shot down and crash-land in some wasteland. I hope that wasn't the case and that it was just another ship edited in to make it "look" like the Ark crashed in this trailer.

It might just be for the trailer and not in the game itself.

His voice sounds epic, and not like he's a vocally and thought challenged Transformer like he, Trypticon, and the Gestalts all sounded like in the G1 cartoon.

I really like this sound much better. The scores from the various live action Transformers films were one of the best aspects of those movies. I have zero complaints about the scores and like seeing that music bring an epic feel here.

I just mean the sound of his voice, not how he spoke. Don't get me wrong, I really like this voice of his in this game. I'm just pointing out that it's one of the few non-G1-inspired voices of these two games.

Though, in G1, he wasn't "vocally and thought challenged", as you put it. He just had a very gruff-sounding voice. Almost like a much deeper-voiced Kup. ;)

FOC Metroplex's voice not being like G1 Metroplex's voice is cool to me, as it shows that these games don't need to mimic every last detail of G1 to be something cool. It's adds a bit of uniqueness to this Metroplex, making him stand out more on his own. :APPLAUSE:

from what the developers of this game intended and despite what hasbro says you cant deny the
that this is totally the same thing but more modern and bad ass than the original
and with a few tweaks to the story that make it more epic
this will be a great franchise

What do you mean by "original"? You do know that the G1 cartoon was not the first piece of Transformers fiction ever, right?

In fact, what are you trying to get at with this?

Any word if Mirage will be be making an appearance? It would be nice to see some character development around him...maybe give him the old "Boba Fett" treatment. (minus the lousy death)

Nope, no word. Not even known if he even exists in this continuity.

He's complimenting the game and what is being done in Fall of Cybertron.

I don't follow the Boba Fett reference.

Host migration, thank God! I really liked the multiplayer for WFC but getting dropped out of every second or third game sucked! Trailer looks great and sooner is better.

I think Mirage should be introduced as a more mysterious character. He does not get much face time yet he has a pretty loyal fan base, albeit underground. Maybe have him playing both sides. I vaguely remember them starting to go that direction in the comic series.

Excuse me? Who are you to speak like that? That was very rude of you as my post was but a simple question. Or is it now a crime to be puzzled?

Not entirely, since they way you worded it confused me:
from what the developers of this game intended and despite what hasbro says you cant deny the
that this is totally the same thing but more modern and bad ass than the original
and with a few tweaks to the story that make it more epic
this will be a great franchise
That sounded weird to me, since at first you're making it sound like you don't agree with something about the game ("...despite what Hasbro says..."), and then you say something that could be applied to several series ("...this is totally the same thing but more modern...than the original..."). It just feels oddly phrased.

What is it that Hasbro is saying that would make us deny the modern feel and coolness of the game? :???:

sorry, my first comment was for seibertron not you, it just seemed easier to comment on your post because his was on there never meant to make your head hurt, so again sorry
anyway i risk saying this because it could go into a battle of aligned continuity arguments but i was referring to that Hasbro wants the games to officially be apart of the aligned continuity that includes the new cartoon and books and the game developers intended it to look and feel like G1 and I am saying it does look and feel like G1 and that's what i will take it as and that's what makes the games awesome

To be honest, I don't think HMS should show off that gameinformer "reward" because a lot of people are showing it off. I watched the Assassins Creed commercial and had the gameinformer "reward" also.

Now I understand. That sounds pretty cool.
