    Pretty good stuff going on there. Here is an early snippit and a few in article images from their site:

    I'm digging the picture of Ironhide with his own axe! :)

    Definitely some really interesting stuff in that article. Nice screenshots as well.

    However, there are a few things in there that I can't help but feel disappointed by. For example, clicking the thumbstick transforms? I dunno, it just sounds like that might be a little awkward.

    I would expect Ironhide to have a Hammer rather than an axe.

    Faster than me! Points of interest:

    -Homage to original opening of Transformers via BB and jets.
    -Jetfire and Screamer are BBF in science before this pops up.
    -Optimus becomes Optimus Prime....not sure if just a leader title or not.
    -Soundwave is a truck. No tapes.
    -Button Controlled Transformation.
    -Drop in drop out coop.
    -Optimus transforms to use a turret, then rips it off Halo 3 style
    -No cover system

    ^ That's actually a clever quote, and it actually makes a lot of sense. It wouldn't be that hard AT ALL to top past Transformers games, and this looks like it'll prbably get the job done.

    Ever played Star Wars Battlefront 2? To sprint you click the thumbstick, I assume here it's the thumbstick that controls forward/backward movement, so actually sounds pretty good. That way you never have to let up on the acceleration.

    My memory's a little fuzzy on BF2. It would work great if the transformation only required you to click it once, but I'm worried that you might have to click it and actually hold the thumbstick down, and not release it.

    But thinking about it more, it's actually a good idea. It'd free up more buttons on the controller.

    Based on the comments it sounds like we will get a flood of articles today about the game. The media embargo has been lifted today.

    I'm sure he's aware of that. He's referring to the screenshots at the bottom of the article.

    AHA! Frick I didn't see those. They do look pretty darn good. I think they may have added those images after I blitz read through the article.

    Sorry Shrooby!

    No they'renot not, there's a whole bunch of DS screenshots in the article.

    Unless you assumed that I'm dumb enough to believe that the obviously XBOX360 screesnshot with THIS ISNT FROM DS GAME text under it was a DS screenshot.

    p.s. that robot looks like shit, just a fat thing with guns and red lights, why would anyone be excited about that?

    Soundwave looks excellent in the screenshot there. It appears they refined him to be a bit less 'shardy' for the final design. I'm a bit surprised there's no cover system, have to see how that plays out.

    I assume it's one click, since they said it's "just a click of the thumbstick."

    It'll probably work out pretty well, then.
