    I've been in a somewhat creative and fun mood lately.

    Something that I started to think about on my way to V for Vendetta is how my XBOX 360, Transformers, and XBOX Live could create one KICK ASS on-line multi-player game (mind you I want a mind-blowing single player game with a cosmic story to boot).

    Start thinking of the possibilities. Imagine, for example, using combiner teams. A leader could be chosen, who could then invite the other combiner team members into an on-line session.

    Now, the cool part. Imagine having "sub-channels" where each member could go into. Once all combiner members are physically close enough, you could then merge into your combined form. Once in there, you could only hear each other (still see the action on screen, of course).

    For all but Devastator, the leader would control the combined form. BUT, you would still have all the internal "chatter" as implied in the comics. The leader controls the other bots, so to speak, but everyone has their own ideas constantly being shouted out in the the leader's "head."

    Now, for Devastaor, all six team members would need to agree on a physical course of action before Devastator could move on-screen. No leader controlling anything as all six "minds" are trying to do what each person/bot thinks is right. Hmmmm .... I guess all six could just hit X button and let Devastator do his thing? :D 

    Just imagine all the possibilities with souped up AI, upgraded XBOX live chat, and the Transformers.

    Any other ideas? :thumb

    Unfortunatly it'll never happen. If ever they make a new TF game, it'll probably be based on whatever the current line. Just like they did the first game, though I must say I enjoyed it a lot.

    A MMORPG would be great none the less if it were made with dedication, but ultimatly I believe it would be too complex to do IMHO.

    Activision has the license now, and they've been fond of online lately. Team-based gameplay in either shooting or racing transformers would pretty sweet.

    I don't know about combiners. getting 2 people in a Warthog to work together in Halo 2 is hard enough.

    I did enjoy the Transformer game for the PS2, don't know if it was on any other system. However it really lacked alot of important elements that could have made it much better. A lack of multiple characters, there was only 3 to choose from, no unlockable skins (G1, Armada, RiD etc). Mission were very linear consisting of shooting mindless drones and collecting Minicons. The only time you fought real characters from the show was in Boss Battles. The final problem was how the transforming ability wasn't used to it's fullest potential. There was never a need to transform other than to move faster. If they had made imporant or based a mission on the need to transform, it could add alot to a great game. Hopefully they will use the model from the first game and build upon it to make a great movie based game. And we all know, gamers in general, that movies games aren't always that well done.
