    when they are on the ark in the first mission ratchet mentions bumblebee still cannot speak. They set it up to they could explain what happened when they went "6 days before launch"
    and this game is said to take place right after WFC. So, what happened to bee's voice?

    Probably couldn't get the same guy to do the voice so the simple thing to do is make him mute.

    Exodus is in no way a part of WFC's story. The All-Spark is not a part of it story.

    this. Even though this is set to be in the exodus continuity, it could be interpreted to be set in any of the WFC/FOC, Exodus/Exiles or even prime continuities

    Remember when Bumblebee had that charismatic young voice of a naive yet daring scout? It was a likeable persona any audience could relate to yet Hasbro has gone out of its way to completely ruin it with this whole mute BS. Hopefully Hot Rod will reprise that role in their next installment if their is one but for now I'm not jumping ship with the direction they're taking Bumblebee in

    I think it is likely to have been requested by Hasbro. Seems like something they'd wanna do to sell more Prime/movie Bees.

    Hasbro didn't write the story and Matt has. Even pretty clear about who wrote the story and what kind of story they're trying to tell.

    Hasbro part in these games has been approving this or that. They signed off on everything HMS wanted to do. Only the Dinobots took some finessing.

    It's very likely they told Matt to keep him mute. That's Bumblebee's thing right now. Personally, I find it really annoying.

    I think Tyger Pax and the loss of Bumblebee's voice would make for a nice bit of story mode DLC. A quick little chapter, similar in length to the opening level of the game. Arm some defense cannons while fighting back a Decepticon attack, Megatron comes storming in and rips out Bumblebee's voice box, then finish it off as, say, Ultra Magnus comes in to Bee's rescue.

    I like how it happens off screen, and I like how other stuff happens off screen too. It makes you feel like stuff is going on while you're not there, like there is an actual war going on.

    HMS should seriously consider story related (supplementary chapters) DLC. I'm not interested in $10 skin packs, but story DLC? I'll be all over that! That's my sort of DLC!

    Story DLC I'd like to see:

    Elita-1 and her crew going up against female Decepticons two or three chapter arc would be nice:drool: 

    Ultra Magnus, Hound, Springer would be a nice too. As HMS isn't adhering too closely to the cartoons/comics, why not introduce Cyclonus, Scourge and the sweeps now?

    A Tyger Pax mission could be great. Why not introduce other G1 characters here too who haven't yet appeared in the series like Prowl, Mirage, Sunstreaker or even Brawn?

    Lastly, I would like to see HMS add some Japanese Transformers characters to these games, especially the Decepticon commanders, as the Decepticons are pretty much Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave. We need more prominent characters.

    Hasbroton ripped his vocal cords out across the multiverse. Half the bee's haven't the foggiest what happened.

    IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. EVER. Or at least not for FoC. It's not that I don't want it to happen (although I'd rather see them going against Shockwave, like in G1), but it just won't.
    That would be pretty cool.
    Heck yeah!
    I also think this would be cool.

    Although, the only one that has even a decent chance of happening is the Tyger Pax one.

    It's even more likely they did. Seriously, a mute Bee in 3 separate continuities? If it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it's probably a duck.
