    not sure if GI readers saw this but on the 3rd pg. of the new nov. game informer, it says "A wealth of new characters join the robotic war, including the return of Grimlock and his MIGHTY DINOBOTS"

    I'd be cool with them just being in the game as long as Grimlock is playable.

    to be honest, while i posted this, i was reading the GI issue and it said that shockwave does in fact gather info from earth. so this could be a possible story behind the whole t-rex thing

    Re-read the article, along with the bonus online material. That -is- the explanation for the T-rex mode. Shockwave taps into long-lost Space Bridge tech, randomly warps off to Earth, studies the indigenous life, and decides to work on his captives to replicate those monstrosities as his own mind-controlled creations.

    just wish we can use that space bridge for a single mission on earth, like a final showdown between shockwave and grimlock

    Grimlock is playable. I don't know about the other Dinobots though.

    As long as they offer us Dinobots in DLC for multiplayer would be awesome.

    I hope we get to see more than just Grimlock, and we should considering that he and his team get captured and transformed by Shockwave. I would like them to be playable too, but High Moon Studios new take on game play may limit us to just one character per stage, though I'm hoping you still get to choose from a selection of characters to complete any given stage.

    Figured this would be a good place to drop this bit of speculation.

    So, we know that we're gonna be able to play as Grimlock once he's in the T-Rex from. My thought is, would we gonna see him (and the others) before they get the dino modes from Shockwave? And if so, would those forms be usable in multiplayer?

    I hope so. If this "Shadow" person others spoke of is a reputable source, there's supposed to be two other Dinobots. If High Moon Studios is following the cartoon/toy releases that would mean Slag and Sludge are next in line. However for class sake, Swoop might be a better choice.

    With how much love and devotion to the IP High Moon has demonstrated at every possible point, I HIGHLY doubt they would only know of Grimlock as "that one T-rex guy", nor that he would have a team.


    Extremely unlikely. This would mean making twice the number of models with full animation only to be used for a tiny fraction of the game. I believe each character has 3 models (robot, vehicle, and transformation). Best case, there are 3 Dinobots. That means there would be 9 extra characters they would have to make; which means 9 other characters they would have to cut due to time/budget.

    Now they could use characters made with the custom character parts but that would result in a fairly generic looking Dinobots crew, which is a bad way to go. "Do something right or don't do it at all", is a common way developers work.

    It all boils down to cost (time, money, manpower, etc) vs reward. And for something like this, High Moon most likely agrees, it would be rather cool. But not near enough to justify doing it. That's the way game developers work.

    multiplayer isn't a small fraction of the game, singleplayer is. (like usual)

    that's probably why you can't transform grimlock (in story mode) at will

    I really don't think that we will get to use the any of the Dinobots in verses multiplayer. From what I read in GI about Grimlock I don't see there being a Decpticon equivalent. Also in the GI article High Moon said that multiplayer would consist of 4 classes, that is the same number as last time leaving no room for a beast class.

    Well, Swoop was playable in the DS version, as well as Grimlock, so I doubt they would forget Swoop. At least in the DS version. (which is the only one I have:eek: )
