    Gotta give 'em credit, they know how to make it sting.

    When I first stumbled across this pic on Facebook, I nearly spazzed out and couldn't wait to tell everyone he was back, then I read the tiny caption reminding us that he's still not in, they trolled me good. "Hey, Dinobots are here but you can't have that one!" Well not really, it read more like this:


    They are almost here, Dinobot Destructor Pack DLC available tomorrow!! Sorry, Sludge is not in this DLC but we are taking note of his surprisingly huge fan base.

    So what does this mean, they're taking our complaints into consideration? Possible Sludge followup DLC? His body was clearly ready to be plopped in the game, it could very well be coded and ready for action right now on that disc.

    Yeah, the picture is old for sure but it was just posted to their page. I'm betting it was pulled as an advert because Sludge was on it and they didn't want to mislead people.

    I think you're being overly sensitive. We probably aren't getting him. Shoot High Moon a polite email saying you wish he was playable and move on.

    Coming 11/11/12, the Sludge DlC Pack allows you to take on the role of a ferocious Brontosaurus robot for the small price of just 10$! Get yours today! order now, and we'll also throw in something else already present in the original game!

    Nah, any Sludge add-on would only be about $2 dollars, if they charge at all. IF they add it, they'd probably be thinking "What were we thinking?!" and patch it into the DLC for free.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I really don't even care that he's not in the DLC, if he comes back I'd be happy but I don't feel the need to complain. Just firing up the discussion-machine to talk about this pic and their comments about Sludge.

    I don't see why they can't throw Sludge into the mix, they have that model for him, so why not use it for more than the two clips they did?

    If they sold him as a standalone DLC, he'd probably be one dollar each part like the Havoc characters, totaling to five dollars (Havoc were six total each, including wheels which dinobots do not have). Seems like a good cash cow to make more money for less content.

    Do it High Moon, do it now.

    Wait, we forgot the whole deal with DLC and stuff...
    Chances of it happening went down probably 60% at least.

    Odds are his model is in-game and ready to use, I'm betting there's a high chance of seeing him now coupled with the disc-locked map pack. I hate to sound like a conspiracy guy but they could have withheld him on purpose.

    Anyhow, judging by his robot form there I'd wager he's a titan.

    The metaphorical wound is the game that is missing a character, the salt was the picture and caption teasing folks who lust for his dino-booty.

    It's not as obvious if you ask me, in the ending credits he's about the size of Slug and Snarl, like half the size of Grimlock.
