    Now that looks much better there. Though is it me or do they always seem to use a blur effect on outside scenes/shots?

    Cool, I'm interested to see what Soundwave's earth mode looks like.
    Game sounds worthy of a purchase, too.

    SUV, huh? Far cry from the car some of us expected. Sounds great overall. I look forward to it.

    Nice that they let Seth Buzzard demo it again. I mean Its a game that I'm going to play anyway because I'm a transformer fan and love collecting their chaotic games. But hearing feedback from another hardcore fan who is playing it, will help draw a decision on buying it the first day, or waiting until its on the clearance. Either way were playing this thing.

    Can we get Matt Tieger as a podcast guest again?

    Though It sounds like their dropping the three transformer commando missions from war for cybertron. For a more traditional preselected story driven character. Which is kind of what the 2007 movie game tried to do. Keep the narrative moving as you moved from blackout to skorponok. Or Optimus Prime one level and bumblebee the next. Perhaps their doing it so the engine does'nt have to keep track of so many shifting models and the result could be that graphical improvement Seth noticed

    I am curious if the most interesting dark of the moon voyager, Skyhammer. Is actually a movie game character. In a similar vein to breakaway.

    Its great that High Moon figured out a way to get their war for cybertron vehicle combat system to make sense in the movie verse. Thanks to stealth Force.

    Little disappointed that Soundwave isn't the SLS as speculated, but payable LASERBEAK and MIXMASTER? Boner through the ceiling. I've wanted to play as Mixmaster since the ROTF game.

    Methinks it might actually be an accurate indicator of what we can expect Soundwave's alt-mode to be in the actual movie. Soundwave, if I'm remembering correctly, was an SUV in Ehren Kruger's speculative treatment of Transformers 2. Now that he's actually writing DOTM, I think he might've carried that idea over (complete with the sonic laser, hopefully).

    For that matter, another idea that seems like it's being carried over from that treatment is the concept of a three-way war. Optimus vs. Megatron vs. another Decepticon Leader. The only difference being that instead of Starscream, we're given Shockwave.

    Hey, if it plays similarly to WfC then it's an auto-buy for me.

    I also like that little detail about removing the selectable characters in single player to keep the story focused. Interesting choice.

    I wonder if it might be like ROTF, where the first time through you only play as a certain charatcer, but once the campaign's complete you can choose from a predetermined lineup?

    Probably not, though, since they pointed out with Laserbeak there's some levels where you need to play as a certain charatcer.

    As long as it's fun.
