I really like that the Dinobots and the Insecticons will be accessible in multiplayer. Easy pick up for me! Did anyone else notice that in the pre-builds that Quake was a selectable character?!
In short, I'm excited for the game and I never want Sooomungry to ever touch the internet or a digital recording device ever again.

Still, the videos were something new. I'm happy to see the character customisation. Sure, the chest being the only thing that affects the vehicle mode is sort of limiting, the rest of the customisation looks good. I was particularly pleased to see the colour options seem to be at least a little bit more expansive for Decepticons this time around. It looked like there were options for a blue and red, or blue and yellow colourscheme there, in fact, one of the Scientists looked a lot like Dirge. That's a huge improvement over the generic greyish purple that every Con was stuck with in WFC.
It looks like you can only make one of each class at a time in this game though, which is a little less good. I liked having the option to be a healer Scientist, or a sniper Scientist in the last one, likewise you could quickly and easily take enemies off guard by playing as a Scout with one loadout for a few rounds, letting them see your abilities, then swapping to one with stealth and taking them by surprise. Oh well.
The levels appear to be much more expansive this time around. It's been too long since I played WFC though, my brain hasn't acclimated to the constant "we are losing A, we are capturing B" again yet, and that was quite irritating. Guess I'll have to log a few more hours to get back into it.

You don't have to watch his video though. I just went to the youtube page and clicked on his source links to watch the originals.
@sabrigami: Escalation is still still only using established characters, with preset abilities (abeit they're different from their SP abilities to work for Escalation better, with the new "classes" thing they're going for.)
I'm going to try and get another FoC update video up tomorrow based on all the new info. so much to catch youtube up on.

I'm sure we'd all echo your request for good head.
