    You know will we get to be Megatron and kill Sentinel Prime?

    We kinda already knew that, Prowl. Environmental destruction, though, is a big plus.

    I'm not that big of a gamer, but THIS is the most beautiful game animation I have seen EVER!! IMHO!! The galley of still shots blew me away, there hasn't been anything so wonderful on Television, much less a video game! Also, love the character artwork as well..good job guys..can't wait for this one to be released..:thumb

    "Activision plans on releasing a significant amount of assets (rendered pictures) and press info on Wednesday. At this point, we were told that on-line multi-player aspects of the game are key and are recognized as important play elements."

    You know, looking at the Cybertron segemtn and the concept art section I realized that a fairly typical FPS-style game mechanic will actually be completely justified in tyhis game as it often is not in others.

    You all know the missions where you have to lower a bridge or raise a platform or whatever. Well, on a world full of Transformers, buildings and terrain features changing form should be an obvious outgrowth of that.

    So no wondering "Well, why the in the Pit isn't that landing bay up there already?", because it folds away when not being used, that's why.

    I guess the big difference here is War for Cybertron has more geeks in charge. Not just artist, but people in all parts of the games development, even Hasbro has backed their requests.

    Defeating Omega doesn’t mean killing him. The Decepticon campaign is the first act of the story. The Autobots story is the second act, so it’s possible they come to his rescue or he manages to fight of the Decepticons, creating a draw, which inadvertently could be what changed the tide of battle.

    The Podcast says it an origin story, so we’re sure to find out which, though if they follow the cartoon they keep bringing up in interviews, he’ll most likely be a worker on the docks of Cybertron, though the trailer shows him using a Transformrs Animated inspired axe, so who really knows?

    Indeed it was.

    We should all be reminded that this game is considered to be canon, and when you couple that with what was shown in cartoons, what all interviewees continue to refer to (not so much the comics), we should assume most of the story follows that storyline.

    The way I see it, G1 had three different storylines: File cards, cartoon and comic book; they had similarities, but differed greatly in some areas. Surely, the one form of Transformers known by most people is the cartoon, followed by file cards and then the comic book story. Since more people have/had easier access to the cartoon, it’s quite possibly for that reason, that chose to follow that continuity (I'm assuming)—for many involved, the cartoon is their memory of Transformers, listen to the interviews.

    I wouldn't mind a borrowing from cartoon, comic book or file cards even, as they all have their goods and bads, though a part of me wants them to follow the cartoon as closely as possible (as crappy as it was) because that IS what started it all, and what G1 ties continue to follow to this day.

    G1 Voice Actors? Check

    G1/War Within based designs? Check

    Badass looking robots? Check

    Meeting of Megatron and Starscream? Check

    Playing as either Autobots or Decepticons? Check

    BADASS GAME?!? This has to be a check

    Hasbro this is your future RIGHT here! Best thing to come out of Transformers in many years.
