    -The vehicle mode ability recharges differently depending on the robot.

    This is from someone at the allspark who has the latest gameinformer issue.

    How is this bad news?

    It could be for balance issues. Or am I mis-understanding you?

    Yeah...I don't consider this bad, if true. I'm pretty sure the various characters had different starting (pre-upgrade) cool down times for their weapons in the ROTF game.

    Crud I mis read it. I thought it meant being in vehicle mode and turning back to a robot had a charge meter.

    The way they make such a big deal about how you can transform at any moment in the game seems to contradict this.

    I hope this isn't the case but even so it dosnt sound too bad.

    EDIT-Oh wait, I think I read it wrong.

    Err... It' not about transforming back and forth, but the ability of the Vehicle Mode (Like, for example, increase attack.)
    EDIT:

    -Ram is vehicle ability - burst of speed that inflicts heavy damage on opponents.

    See what I meant?

    After all, they intend us to Transform, not to stay in one mode.

    With all the time and energy they've spent telling us and boasting the ability to freely transform whenever, I'm pretty sure Nightmare is correct.

    In fact, I'm certain.

    I didn't get what Sideswipe was saying earlier and kind of embarrased myself....

    true, but an early previewer months ago noticed there is a meter in vehicle mode. maybe it has to do with how long you can have your wheels deployed and go in boost mode
