    Nice!! Good job TFW.

    I really hope this becomes the definitive Transformers game. The look has certainly raised that possibility. Gameplay is always the challenge these days. Awesome graphics are pretty much the expectation.

    And fortunately, it looks like a focus on the story is going to be a priority.

    Not holding my breath, but definitely feeling excited for the possibilities here.

    Megatron is like a clash between Cybertron and Classic.

    Please, please, PLEASE let us finally be getting a good game for Transformers that balances story/character development with gameplay. I would love to feel immersed in a Transformers game.

    Nice! My excitement just leveled up!

    Sounds like it could quite possibly be a good game full of love for the source material.

    Wait, "last generation of non-movie products"? WTF does that mean? Until Transformers 3 or until forever?

    The part that has me the most excited is the mention of this possibly being a start to the "last generation for awhile." I'd love start and stick with an ongoing continuity instead of rebooting the franchise every 1-2 years like they have for pretty much this entire decade. I remember that Animated was originally supposed to be like that before it was cancelled. Hopefully, with Hasbro running their own station now, this game can serve as the opening to something that will last for a good long while.

    Also, that Megatron design is sex.

    Edit: actually, having reread that paragraph, I realize it might also be interpreted as "the last generation before we do nothing but whore out the movieverse for the next several years." That is a much less appealing option.

    I'm really digging the artwork for this game! I think the designs look awesome, especially Megs. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that this turns out to be as good of a game as Batman: Arkham Asylum is!

    :music 

    "On a cold winter morning in a time before the light
    In flames of death's eternal reign we ride towards the fight
    When the darkness has fallen down and the times are tough alright
    The sound of evil laughter falls around the world tonight

    Fighting hard fighting on for the steel through the wastelands evermore
    The scattered souls will feel the hell bodies wasted on the shores
    On the blackest plains in hell's domain we watch them as they go
    In fire and pain now once again we know

    So now we fly ever free, we're free before the thunderstorm
    On towards the wilderness our quest carries on
    Far beyond the sundown, far beyond the moonlight
    Deep inside our hearts and all our souls

    So far away we wait for the day
    For the light source so wasted and gone
    We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days
    Through the fire and the flames we carry on"


    YES.

    For the love of god don't screw this up guys. I have waited my whole life for a decent transformers game. There have been small momments like Zone of the Enders 2nd Runner with the Vic Viper and the old PSX game Future Cop LAPD with X1 Alpha. I will buy anything you put out if you make this game good. I play alot of multiplayer games like Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead 1/2 and if you can take the best parts of those games and make it with transformers you will have a mega-selling game on your hands. So many people have wanted this for so long. ROTF had a notable attempt with it's game release but it fell short in the long run. I have faith in you you guys. Please don't let me down!

    "For the non-movie products - toys, video games and otherwise - it looks like this could be the start of the latest, and possibly last, Generation. At least for a while, anyway."

    Out of everything in that interview, this caught me off guard. Does this mean that after the video game franchise, and after the movie franchise... Transformers may end? Or am I just misunderstanding this statement? I hope I am.

    This looks pretty promising; there's a lot of good potential with this series.

    Nononono...TF is too much of a cash cow to abandon it ;) 

    What they mean is that this could be the kick off for a new continuity and every subsequent series of Transformers is connected to this one continuity. No 'new universes', no re-imaginings, just that this is the start of a brand new universe and that it could be the last new one, but a very broad and fleshed out one.

    As a smaller comparison, think of how Beast Wars and Beast Machines connected with G1. Same universe (ish), different characters, settings, and ideas.

    Ah, I get it. So they're pretty much sticking to this continuity, the movie continuity, and possibly the new cartoon continuity (at least for a while, anyway), right? Interesting.
