    PS3 and 360 versions just hit the torrent sites. I'll be buying the PC Version but I'll be giving the PS3 version a quick run while I wait.

    I can forgive them forgetting pitching down Franks Megatron voice (if they were aware of that at all), but not getting Arthur Burghardt to voice Devastator... laaaame!

    So, not a single person has seen or heard anything about the PS4 pre-order theme?

    It's not even something you get once the game comes out, you're supposed to get it the moment you pre-order. So that must mean that not a single person bothered to pre-order it from the PSN store, because beside the mention of a pre-order theme on the game's page on the PSN store...not a single other place on the internet has mentioned any knowledge of it existing.

    I guess I should just pre-order from Amazon then

    That Starscream though...Nails on a chalkboard. Megatron's voice is okay, but it ain't Transformers Prime. Game looks hard as hell, like Dark Souls mixed with MGR and Transformers.

    Well I caved. : P Level design isn't as good as I thought it'd be throughout the whole level, but it's interesting to know that the maps won't be a linear path from A to B, and instead is sort of a "city map" layout. Not neccessarily open world, but lets you take different routes to different areas, and completely retrace your steps for collectables. Pretty interesting.

    Also love how dense the boss lineup looks to be, with more than 7 bosses throughout the first level. Hope this means a lot more characters are getting in as bosses.

    Also, noticed while he was on the store that there were purchasable moves, as well. Dunno if they'll be good enough to keep the gameplay fresh yet, but nice to know that they're there all the same.

    Here's some slick 60 fps gameplay! Looks absolutely amazing

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJOJRq0o6pc

    Vid also shows off the "open world" nature of the level, as several routes he takes are completely different from the ones shown in the other video. Also, it seems the heavy weapons will impact the core combos by quite a bit; wonder how different other weapons are?

    Watching some more gameplay vids:
    -How can you not have Frank do Laserbeaks screeches and Ravages growls?!
    -Thundercracker sounds somewhat like Swindle. Doesn't even try to mimic John Stephenson's deep, tough voice.

    -Insecticons sure are quiet. Couldn't they have Michael Bell do the voice of Bombshell? After all, he's in the game voicing Sideswipe soooo...

    -Starscream VA just doesn't get Chris Latta's performance.

    -Motormasters has a voice that'd fit Thundercracker. (BTW, have some of the V.A's phoned in their lines?!)

    After watching some of the playthroughs on YouTube I just realised how nice it is to hear Dan Gilvezan as Bumblebee again, and his voice sounds pretty much the same as it did in G1.

    Grimlock doesn't seem to say much at all in the cutscenes though.

    Based on the ending cutscene, I think it's a safe assumption that the Combiner Wars series will be a sequel to Devastation.

    So Scott Whyte voices Starscream, Skywarp and Rumble.
    Jim Ward is Teletraan 1
    Christopher Swindle is Wheeljack, Frenzy
    Dave Boat is Devastator, Blitzwing
    Steve Blum is Bonecrusher, Defensor
    Liam O'Brien is Motormaster
    Darryl Kuryld is Shockwave
    Andrew Sogliuzza is Thundercracker, Scavenger
    Jamieson Price is Mixmaster, Hook, Superion
    James Arnold Taylor is Menasor

    Seems actors could get 3 roles maximum. LAME! Just what is up with that?! Frank could've done Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, Frenzy, Skywarp, Mixmaster, Kickback... but noooo... stupid 3 roles limit. Idiots.

    Maybe.

    It could also mean either DLC or a fully planned Sequel.

    Either way, I'm super excited for this game. Its unfortunate that they couldn't get Corey Burton for Shockwave, but overall, I love what I've seen.

    I knew it was Scott Whyte as Starscream.

    I am disappointed that Corey Burton didn't reprise Shockwave.

    wait Liam O'Brien is Motormaster. I thought it was Richard Epcar...it sounded more like him.

    The soundtrack, or what I've heard of it, sounds awesome.

    Seems heavily inspired by Vince DiCola's work on Angry Birds Transformers.

    Dude, spoilers. :[ You already posted that he was in the game, as well... why'd you have to do that?

    Also, over on neoGAF, the impressions seem to be pretty good. Apparently it's leagues ahead of Korra, and is pretty up there with the rest of Platinum's games. One of the more varied, yet streamlined games of them all, as well.

    Also, apparently there's the possibility for DLC outside of the preorder bonuses? Maybe some Decepticon campaigns will be added ala Metal Gear Rising's Sam and Bladewolf DLC releases?

    Argh, the next 10 days are going to be such a pain to get through...
