    The prequel comics and the DOTM video game both tell the story that bridges the two movies storywise. But since they are two different stories most likely, which one can be taken as accurate to the continuity of the story?

    I know that this doesn't matter all that much but I'd like to believe the game is the right one but my guess is the comics.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the DOTM game takes place directly after Rising Storm, considering Shockwave and Mirage have been shown to be in their movie forms (which they got after RS), and Rising isn't a direct lead-in to the movie like Alliance was.

    But if they are separate, I'd go with whichever has the better and more fitting story. Rising was decent (better than Nefarious...), but I'll have to wait until the game comes out to make a decision.

    Give Barber another mini-series and he'll reconcile all the games together too. Hasbro's traditional stance is that EVERYTHING is canon anyway, just pull the multiverse excuse and you're good.

    It seems the game takes place after Rising Storm as Mirage has his own level with his movie body after his original body gone blown to pieces in the comics

    It's all canon. But I suppose whichever lines up better to the movies is more relevant. Until the movies contradict them, of course. In matters such as these the movies are king, even beating out the bios of the movie toys.

    The movies are canon, the comics and video games are not.

    the problem with the game being the sequel to rising storm is that Megatron is in his ROTF Body at the beginning of the game and he as his DOTM Body in Rising Storm
