    Sup Drift.

    Too bad you probably won't have any new melee animations for your swords.

    I'm fine with recycled assets (dat bructicus), but if the marketing team had to feature recycled assets in a trailer, to sell its' game, well, I wouldn't place much faith in that title.

    The lack of extensive coverage (uncut / unedited playthroughs) doesn't help matters at all.

    And I still don't understand the connection between Bayformers and Fall of Cybertron Transformers. Are they trying to say that the Fall of Cybertron guys are the same as the movies guys? Is this a Turtles Forever sort of dimensional crossover? Are these 2 unrelated stories thrown into one game? What the hell is going on?

    A very bad attempt to cross both universes akin to using an industrial sized lawnmower to pick out a delicate flower (supposedly this "Dark Spark" opened a portal to both, unrelated, dimensions. In other words, they magic-cheetoh'd it) :p 


    On a strictly, FoC related, note: BRUTICUS, BABY!!! :D

    From what I can tell.

    In terms of story;
    Mystical thing known as the 'Dark Spark' has disturbed the balance of reality making both the events of AOE and FOC happen at virtually the same time. Due to magical space mumbo-jumbo if the past version dies the future version is not affected.

    In terms of reasoning behind the game;
    Essentially the idea is combining both versions to make a profit - that's why their is a massive change of style. They wanted to pump out an AOE tie-in but they hadn't got time to work on both a tie-in and also on a FOC sequel - as such they combined them both.

    ^ Thanks for the screen shots.

    Trailer looks good. Not sure if the storyline really grabs my attention though ...

    Is it just me or is that a new animation for bruticus?

    Anyway even though the concept is ridiculous I still am super exited for this game!

    This looks like the laziest modern game of all time. Even Prime's stealth force mode is just a copy of his DOTM one, except reskinned with his new truck.

    Looks like it at least has some plot, though. And a nice score.

    EDIT: WAIT WHAT THE FUCK? That part about MEGATRON totally went over my head because it's so generic. Jesus, I wonder how the hell they're gonna justify Megatron's presence when he died in DOTM and probably isn't coming back in AOE (since this game takes place after AOE, apparently).

    Maybe now we'll see that ultimate bruticus/dinobot brawl, only with both sets of dinobots not only fighting bruticus, but each other as well.

    Hey, on the upside, maybe we'll actually get more than 5 minutes of Bruticus gameplay this time...

    wow...holy re-skin batman...will rent, but NOT a buy. I wonder if this will justify ANOTHER re-release of the combaticons? Plus seemed wrong having the smooth Bayformers with the blocky FOC designs...

    Looks like they took the leftover bits from WFC/FOC and slapped it in with this the Bay-game.

    Not even worth a $20 used copy!

    It says "Set before and during AoE" but honestly i doubt it, Just like DOTM game was like a Prequel, it was VERY loosely a prequel.

    In my mind i'm declaring this non cannon to either AoE or WFC/FOC universe, and it's simply a 'What if' game. Megatron on Cybertron activates the Dark spark in one universe and it opens a rift into the movieverse. thinking of it like that just reminds me of Shattered Glass with CJ being sent to another Universe.

    And cause of that...THIS LOOKS SO DAMN FUN! Ridiculous, but fun. Hopefully Multiplayer will be like FOC...Having Drifts chest on FOC Jazz's legs, with FOC Bumblebee's arms and Crosshairs's head would look so hilarious.

    Yep, it is a pity as I liked both Cybertron games. I know some of the Transformer movie games are ok, but looking at the movie robots in such low def* compared to the movies is jarring and irritating to me.

    * I know a degree of this is unavoidable.

    We need a team up of the FOC dinobots and the AoE Dinobots at first both Grimlocks fight over who is king, then Bruticus shows up, and they both team up to bring him down xD
