    I just saw a video about the character creation for the multiplayer mode and it's about 100 times better than War for Cybertron.

    With WfC all you could do was choose existing characters and recolor them which was fine I never imagined being able to do anything more than that. The only problem I had was that the color pallets were very limited and especially with the Decepticon pallet all the colors look the same. Being color blind sucks.

    Now with FoC it looks like they have a better color pallet and something I never thought they would do... you can actually swap out robot parts. The chassis actually determines what vehicle mode you go into but changing the arms and legs and stuff does seem to have some effect on that. Like they showed with Vortex it turns into a helicopter but the arms were swapped out so the place in vehicle mode where his arms would be looked different as well. I had this idea before but not like this mostly because I don't think any of the swapped out parts would actually function properly if you tried to do it with the toys. Still I'm very excited to customize my own robots. :) 

    Another thing I noticed that's different is before you could only get Optimus Prime as an Autobot but it looks like in Fall of Cybertron he's also available as a Decepticon. So nothing is limited to one faction or the other. This is also good because it means that people won't have to mod the game to get an Autobot chassis on the Decepticon faction which causes confusion in the game when it's still sporting red Autobot faction symbols. All of the characters have glowing lights matching their faction insignia. In Fall of Cybertron if you're playing as a Decepticon you have Decepticon purple glowing faction insignias so no one can mistake you for an Autobot.

    I'm really interested to see what people end up making in the game so if anyone has the demo version please post your creations, robot and vehicle mode, please.

    Not to be rude or anything but we already know all of this, all of this is also presented in the demo which has been available for weeks now.

    i liked WFC's color choices, where you could choose the two colors separately instead of what they have now

    But the ugly truth is.... your robot 's chest determines which vehicle it transforms to. And it seems only the Wheels can be customized in vehicle mode. Not even the wings from any other jets....

    I meant i am fine with this.. cuz' I can't imagine if the game engine can handle so much extra data transaction. I 'd prioritize a smooth lag free game play over anything else...

    False, the wings on jets do change depending on what you pick, and same with the cannons on the tanks. Those are the replacement section for where wheels are on the leader and scout(refuse to call them infiltrator and destroyer)

    Jetscream: Meta, all I ever wanted, was to make you LOL. You must see why I had to make a funny comment!

    Meta: You didn't make me LOL. You made me ROFL.
