    That is awesome. I really love Jazz's transformation sound. For Grimlock's transformation, I wish they would've used the T-rex roar from Jurassic Park. I just think it would have sounded cooler that way. Optimus' transformation is cool too. I'm also really interested to see where the windstorm will take place because that is a really cool effect. It's nice to see how and where they get all the sounds for the game.

    That's pretty cool!
    Notice how all the HMS people say "transform" instead of "transformation"?

    Also, they say Grimlock is One of the bigger characters you get to play.
    Does that mean we'll get to play someone as big/bigger than him?

    I think you get to play as Bruticus and Metroplex.

    I never get tired of hearing foley artists talk about their craft. It's one of the most important, and often underappreciated, aspects of film/radio/games. Also, never really thought about the transformation sound being the energon in their bodies, but that makes a little sense...

    Jazz's sound is pretty damn sweet, and definitely fits. The windstorm sound they mentioned as taking place in the Rust Sea, also namedropping it when talking about using the dry ice to make the groaning/creaking metal sounds.

    Bruticus was already confirmed as playable, so... I think he's the bigger one.

    The sound designers' reaction to Peter Cullen's comments on the script is hilarious. "The script is changed!"

    Raise your hand if you did the g1 transformation sound when playing the second video. XD
    Thank you for the link! It was really fun to watch those. The transformation animations look great! Grimlock is pure bad-assery (is that a word? :p ).

    Agreed, I will never get bored of technical conversations about foley art. Some of those noises are great. Still not quite up there with when I first heard the soundboards for the 2007 movie, but close.

    I've not played a video game in about 10 years but I could happily listen to this stuff several times over on my walk to work.

    All those sounds work really well and giving them individual transformation sounds gives that much more depth and lets us know that Transformers are in the best of hands and that line Peter 'The Man' Cullen says... "Take that Decepticon punk!"... I sooo want that for my ring tone! :thumb

    Jazz's transformation sound is really tight! Fits him well! I would love to have his sound as a ringtone or something!

    I love the vids and how they get the different sounds and stuff, really neat! And the Rust Sea name drop...cool! These guys are really creative at coming up with the various sounds.

    I LOVE and have absolute respect for sound groups. And in this day and age where it's so much easier to go and get your own sounds and store them, mess with them however you want, it's great to know people are taking advantage and coming up with unique stuff instead of archived recordings we've heard before. And it's always fun to see how they get these great sounds.

    Man, I want in on that line of work...

    yeah, this is one of the better gameinformer features. grimlock's sound gives me shivers of excitement. they make it sound like the game is almost done. another 12 months feel so far away still.

    Very interesting, reminds me of a documentary I saw a while ago about the BBC radiophonic workshop.
