    When High Moon redid the Transformersgame.com website and set it up for Fall of Cybertron I got excited about it and when to the site to check it out. Well much to disapointment Bumblebee's bio is on there and it says "...despite losing his voice to Megatron...". Damn that just ticks me off! Why you ask, because I HATE HATE HATE this whole "Bumblebee lost his voice thing". Yes I realize that both Prime and the Exsdus books have that in them and along with HM's Cybertron games form what Hasbro has dubbed the "aligned countinuity". First there is the fact that I hate Bumblebee not talking, but besides that a Hasbro executive has stated in the past that the aligned countinuity doesn't mean everything will be, in his words "matchey matchey".

    So I put up a poll do you wish that High Moon's video games WFC/FOC would have stayed out of the whole Bumblebee can't talk thing?

    I rather him be completely quiet kinda like a silent warrior than make annoying beeps and noises. The whole silent but deadly thing would workout so much better if they do it right.

    It was Hasbro's call, since in some backwards way the WFC games link up to Prime, and having BB mute supposedly makes him more kid friendly (at the same time, it makes him more of the silly character since he must be more exaggerated in some of his movements to make up for his lack of a voice).

    However, since the Aligned continuity starts at WfC and branches off into Prime and other series, there's no reason a future Aligned branch series can't have BB's voice fixed if Hasbro decides to drop it.

    Well if he's losing his voice, he would't say anything at all, he would pretty much be similar to Prime Soundwave. Silent and deadly.

    I really don't care if he talks or not.

    It does make sense in my opinon if the games are starting to be more connected to Prime this way.

    Doesn't matter to me. Voice = great. No voice, resulting in better facial/body language = great.

    What McFeely said. For all we know, Bumblebee is gonna be the same chatterbox he was in WFC, with the loss of his voice happening 15 minutes before the end credits roll. Just because it says he loses his voice, doesn't mean Bumblebee is gonna be mute for the entirety of the game.

    Yes. I like JYB and finally I admit the mute gimmick is getting very old. This is my favorite version of Bumblebee too. :(

    I assume nothing. It says right there on Bumblebee's character profile that he loses his voice to Megatron. And I don't like voiceless Bumblebee no matter when in the story he shows up. What I want is for High Moon to have never put the whole Bumblebee loses his voice thing into ANY present or future TF game. No what I want is for Bay to have never put voiceless Bumblebee into his damn movies then none of this would be talking this.

    And it most likely was Hasbro's call but I still don't like it. Read my OP about Hasbro's comment on the "matchy matchy" thing.

    Thanks for the comment and your opinion though, I really am curious to see how many people like/dislike/don't care about it.

    ^^ I'm okay with silent Bee. Seeing as he does't have a mouth guard like in TF: P it would be weird to see him make bleeping sounds with his normal mouth.

    High Moon Studios fired a good VA. So sad. I wish they could have fought for talking Bumblebee as passionately as they did for Space T-rex.
