in the gametrailers vid, the "Excuse me!" scene almost makes me forget that I've heard "What is it that makes a Transformers game, Transformers? Transforming, right? I know it sounds silly but..." about a thousand times now. :APPLAUSE:

Found the remix. It was hard to track it down until recently.

Okay... So why aren't all the Navi in the Grimlock footage telling Grimlock to listen and why didn't he kill them? :P

The posted Escalation gameplay appears to be a lower quality, cropped version of the one posted via GameInformer a couple days ago.

Tell that to Matt Tieger, who blatantly said in one of this year's E3 interviews that Fall of Cybertron tells the story that leads up to G1.

For all we know, WFC/FoC's continuity branches off into both an Aligned continuity and a new Primax continuity. But official sources don't seem to be decided about what's what right now.

In this video interview, the interviewer asks Tieger about that:

Greg Miller: "For you, I mean, when you guys are sitting down and coming up with the story and planning it, are you setting it in the cartoon universe, or it is your own universe but heavily influenced by--?"
Matt Tieger: *clears throat* "I think, wha-- The latter is accurate. We generally use the G1 cartoon as our primary touchstone, but we also look at comics-- Uh, some of the older comics I really enjoyed, particularly the UK comics, actually, were very very good."
Greg Miller: *Jokingly emulates a British Optimus Prime, then stops*
Matt Tieger: "Um, so we do look at tons and tons of source material, but, at the end of the day, we do kind of carve our own path."

So, he does recognize that it's not the same universe as the G1 cartoon, and in other interviews, he's talked about how the game is part of the greater current canon of the "bible" that Hasbro recently put together, which constitutes the Aligned Continuity. ;)

That doesn't contradict anything I said. But I'm sure he did tell them in one of those interviews that "it leads straight into G1".

Also, we still don't know if Aligned is meant to be one continuity, or many. Evidence isn't lining up to just one conclusion here. >:oP

Edit: In this interview, Matt clearly states that "it ends at the beginning of G1".

Matt Tieger wrote:It ends, kind of ... at the beginning of G1, in the sense that you are, eh the Autobots and Decepticons have been at war for a long time period. They don't even know where they're headed ultimately we know that they end up on earth.


He says kind of, just like all other Transformers stories kinda have the same premise.
But tell me this, if this is supposed to be G1, please tell me why Bumblebee can talk in all incarnations of G1, while this game tells the story of why he's mute in Transformers Prime?

For the same reason Lugnut is in a G1 continuity now. >:oP

Are you saying the Bay films are in Prime continuity because 'Bee is mute in them?

No, the statement is this:
The game shows us how Prime Bumblebee losses his ability to speak. Remember, War For Cybertron was set in the Prime/ Aligned continuity it's only logical that the sequel to it is also set in the Prime continuity.
We've been over this for the past two years, War for Cybertron is part of the Prime continuity not G1.
Arguing against that makes you on par with the kind of people who believe that Reptoids have been simultaneously guiding and working towards destroying our species for the past 10 thousand years or so. >:oP

A thirteen and a half minute video on Escalation and I still don't have an answer to the biggest question on my mind: will FoC Escalation give the player points for assists?

It's the single biggest, most retarded aspect of the co-op mode. All that talk of working together, of talking to each other, of spending points together, but you can't earn points together. I'm royally f**ked off with using a third of my ammunition taking on a Titan only to lose the kill to some asshole who's been hidden in a corner somewhere waiting for things to quieten down.

Again, we don't know if Aligned is even one continuity yet, or many.

I'm not saying WFC/FoC isn't in the aligned continuity family, I'm saying that the G1 continuity family might share WFC/FoC with Aligned. It's more than possible. Remember, stranger things HAVE happened in the Transformers franchise.

Dead Metal wrote:We've been over this for the past two years, War for Cybertron is part of the Prime continuity not G1.
We've been "over this" because both sides have evidence that WFC/FoC are in each respective continuity family. What you're trying to do is ignore contradicting evidence and claim that everything points to your conclusion.

I'm not necessarily on the "WFC=G1" side. I'm just trying to be reasonable here.

Yeah... no. :HEADHURTS:

I know that feel bro.

Still, I'm pretty good in Escalation (if I do say so myself, placed around 100 in the leaderboards so either nerd or fan or kinda good). But that isn't my biggest annoyance, that is reserved for the weapon stealers. If you don't have the best connection you have to press "use" after you bought the gun to pick it up. And there are trolls that steal the gun you bought. You just have to be alone at a shop to buy stuff, never let anyone close.

But even more annoying is those trolls that go outside of the map and continue to play so that the match doesn't end. Those kids that say they "know a way out of the map". Sure, everybody knows that by now, just don't do it play normal and show some skill :)

Anyway, Escalation is the only reason I still play the game almost ever since the launch. It's so great to play an iconic character with 3 others and just battle hordes of enemies. :CON: :BOT:
