    Never even heard of this guy until now, probably cuz I don't play Unreal Tournament or Gears of War.
    But the dude sent in a very bitter letter to Michael Bay over the changes.

    Bad language warning on that link, BTW. I'll post a sanitized version.

    So, you think there's going to be another epidemic of Beast Machines-era death threats? Cuz people like this might just be immature-enough to do it...

    I like to use dirty words and pornographic metaphors to drive my point home. I find it really motivates the listener to thoughtfully consider my opinions.

    Yeah I kind of tuned it out after a few paragraphs.As soonas I read remarks like "Raping my childhood in the ass" I kind of tune out.

    Cliffy B's a keyboard warrior PURE AND SIMPLE.Like he'd even use 50% of that language in person.Got to love people who have the biggest balls on earth when they're posting their opinions on the internet

    :eek: 

    Could he be anymore bitter?

    I've said on this board before that this movie's Beast Machines V2.0.We'll DEFINITELY be having another epidemic on our hands next year:redface2:

    I had a lot of respect for Cliff until just now. Seeing this kind of unoriginal shitty fanboy rant from one of the creators of Jazz Jackrabbit rapes my childhood. :redface2:

    I love Transformers and was " raised on the concept of Badass Transforming Robots" but I never thought of Optimus Prime as a father figure any more than any other cartoon hero I liked growing up.

    Do I just not belong here or what? Why do these people try to speak for everyone that likes Transformers? I dont get the chills, or nausea, or slit my wrists over everything about the (non-g1 based) movie. Actually, I think the changes are pretty cool. Maybe I 'm just new-school, or maybe these people are retarded.

    More and more I feel like I'm one of five people who are still optimistic about this movie :(

    I happen to know that Cliff is bluffing about his thoughts on post-diecast Transformers anyway. He has a few boxed imported Car Robots toys displayed on a shelf in his office.

    A million selling games designer who knows that his place isn't trying to be "cool" by sending Micheal Bay hate mail over the internet via my blog.

    It's one of those fandom cliches IMPO.I mean as cool as Prime is he HARDLY what in my mind makes a father figure.But you know fandoms they tend to over-exaggerate

    :lol 

    But I thought he dislike the post-BW crap.And wouldn't Car Robots classify as POST BW?

    That cements it,he's just a keyboard warrior jumping on the "Hate Bay" bandwagon.Like TT says,he's trying to look cool.

    But if given the chance if Bay was in his face his tone'd change

    Wow? I have never herd such obsene word's used for discrace! Boy he really doesnt appreciate the flame's......And yes sorry I havent been here long enough to realize that was posted before; And did I say how obsene. Anyway's he got the point done quite well before the porno shoot for pervert's.

    Man he is really pissed, but that kinda thing is expected when your dealing with something that practically run's in our vein's.

    On a serious note this kinda apply's not only to the Peterbilt but the lime green Ferrari. But I think we should all cool our cybertronian jet's until the movie fulls it's way through production, it could very well be OP alter egoe so ya never know. Haste make's waste! Remember it is only a month and a half in production. Give it some time.

    Even if you were to tone down his reaction ten times, its still a bad reaction. Most everything I read on this forum, on DM.net, talk to my friends or my family has this same bad reaction.

    Comments like "he's a what?", "why did they change that", "thats a stupid idea", etc. I had the same reaction myself when seeing that leaked Prime pic. Not cuz it was a long nosed truck, or that it was blue, but because of the flames.

    That is the best example of not respecting the source material. You didn't see X-Men make Cyclops go from a leader/do-gooder type to a rebel. The equivalent has been done to Optimus.

    If the Megatron/Optimus brothers rumor is true and if the flames on Prime are true, I know for sure that these people don't respect the source material.

    That conversation is already going on enough places on this board alone, and way more than enough on the Internet in general. Let's keep this one thread about Cliffy's rant, and not the thousands of other rants across the 'Net.

    I think this rant serves as an excellent example to compare against the "thousands of other rants" you speak of - and proves the point me and Shaun_C have made several times already in various threads.

    Do things about this movie deviate from what I remember Transformers being? Hell yes.

    Do things I've heard about this movie suggest that it might suck? Also hell yes.

    Am I claiming it has forcibly sodomized my proverbial childhood? Of course not.

    It's enough for me to say "I have a bad feeling about this movie," or "I don't like where this is going." But the world doesn't stop spinning, my toy collection does not cease growing, and my entertainment does not dry up and disappear. Nor does my anus start to feel any sharp pains.

    Expressing your joy/outrage in a rude or psychotic fashion doesn't work in the real world, why should it work on the Internet? This is a community, not a personal scratching post - and I hope the people that would behave similarly take a good hard look at the way this guy's diatribe has been treated by the forum, because it's a perfect example of irrational, rude, and offensive expression.
