Hate the fact that it's coming out the same month as Halo 4. Now I won't be able to decide which I want first. :-(

Any word on PC availability? Will be a no-go if it isn't for me. I don't do consoles.

Yeah, I've heard of it. TFwiki mentions it on Optimus Prime's article.

I was just thinking how awesome it would be to play as a combiner. They've appeared in previous games but I don't think you've been able to play as one.

I was thinking about playing a giant Transformer when you controlled Metal Gear Rex in Metal Gear Solid 4.

yellow bot concept = dragstrip? :)

Very happy to see where this is going so far. I hope we hear that they've kept co-op and escalation, and at least all the mp game types. I loved them all, and am sad it can be hard to find games for anything but tdm and conquest anymore. Ahh, well, tat's what friends are for, right?! :D

Yea, it seems so. The sad part, is that even with all its lack of support for PC, WFC still kicked ass since people could make fps unlockers... On the 360, your just effed if the game is.

Cool, Bruticus (Maximus). One of Shockwave's great accomplishments. I wonder if Brawl and/or Onslaught will be a part of him.

They have the videos playing for design inspiration. The story itself may make some callbacks to G1, but so does every other non-G1 series. A few homages do not equate to a canon connection.

Besides, take note of this line from Hasbro:
Anything you know from past generations of the brand may or may not be factual in the new continuity.

I'm really curious about how you'll play as a combiner, and if they'll have them online as well.

I mean, will it take a full 5 members to combine, who does what? I know traditionally it's 5 members, the combaticons included. Though, maybe they'll "toy"(LOL!) around with things. What if it's only 3 people?
I guess it would be cool if it was like, in other games, a multi-manned vehicle with, different turrets, a driver or what have you. I'm excited, but I don't want to get my hopes up, for something that could really just end up looking cool, and offering not so much gameplay wise.

No. Activision fails at marketing.

Didn't say that it did. But there are definitely more than a few homages in WFC.

How is that? Marketing this early really doesn't cost them anything other than online costs. If anything, its good for them to market this early, since the movie just hit dvd and blu ray, and more people will remember Transformers now than in a year. I don't think many people are going to bother pre-ordering this early, but being before the christmas season, its a chance for high ROI sales.

It's senseless to try to gauge interest and seek payment in FoC this month, especially with additions to the Batman, Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, Gears of War, Halo, Saints Row, Skyrim, Lord of the Rings, and Mass Effect franchises that either have been released recently, or are going to be released in the near future. Regardless whether you have interest in these franchises, many gamers across the Earth are having a hit to the wallet from the amount of games being released in this year's Q4. I appreciate the game getting previewed and all, but asking for money to be put down now in this month? Just no.

While WoC's release date in the summer last year didn't exactly help it's sales, nor did the sheer lack of any advertising.. it's just moving to Q4 is a bit of a risk. There are more well established game franchises that always release in Q4, and.. I just don't see TF selling well. Of course one might ask, why does it matter if someone else buys it, aslong as you do? Less demand means less tech support. WoC was filled with garbage and glitches, and while I put weeks upon weeks into the game, I was blinded because I was TF fan. The normal gamer isn't going to take crap if Activision produces the same lack of care that WoC gave.

Your thinking about it from a negative pov. It doesn't HURT them at all. it could only help them. Theres no such thing as marketing too early when the end product has an already fairly defined release date. Earlier means more time spent spreading the news. There is really no downside other than overhead, and thats insignificant. Its not like the consumers are going to choose now, and then not be able to choose in five, eight, or twelve months from now. It just gives some who are more TF fans than... whatever, mass effect, assasins creed fans a chance to buy early, and then maybe save cash for the upcoming year that has an unknown income.

And btw, its NEVER senseless to gauge interest. Thats what marketing is all about, gauging, always, as much as possible.

Of course they do, because they @#$%@%@# the game studio and Hasbro with illegal downloads.
Why the hell do you think you didn't get the DLC?

Very excited about the combiner. Wouldn't it be great to play online with 5 people and every player controls a limb. Okay most combiners won't even walk straight. But if you work together you could act like one player. Yess!

Combaticons/Bruticus, sweet! :D It'd be nice to control him, but I doubt that will happen. Most likely it's just going to be a boss fight. But I hope I'm wrong (which I usually am, haha).

It seems they're making the customization better. Maybe even going that far that you could choose from different arms/legs/etc, and make a character look like you want? I would be happy if that's the case. :D
