    And that's another reason why Animated is such a good show.

    I also really like what the combination does for God Magnus and his growth as a character.

    He'll never be an "Ultra Magnus" to me, but honestly, that's kinda what makes him really cool.

    He's unique.

    Agreed 100 percent on God.

    I look at him the same way I do Delta and Minimus, sure they are Magnus’ but they aren’t “Ultra” Magnus to me.

    I kind of hope that the Energon Universe follows the trajectory of the Japanese G1 cartoons; so, like, I'd be more interested in seeing Deathsaurus than Jhiaxus as a "new era" villain, I guess.

    I get that they had to recolor that Ultra Prime image to fit Drag Strip being there, but why did they have to repaint Skydive, Fireflight, and Air Raid differently when they could have just colored Air Raid like Drag Strip lol

    Because for whatever reason, "Actual Optimus Maximus" uses the Battle Core deco.

    It's really stupid and they could have avoided that issue entirely if they just kept the usual colors.

    Legit had to slog through to finish it my first playthrough, and even when I go back to replay, I get about five-ish minutes in before I just get bored.

    I'm biased since I love the game, but I genuinely feel like this is a case where it's not the game's fault -nor is it yours.

    As far as I'm concerned (without making a giant wall of text that takes 10 minutes to read) it sets out to do exactly what it needs to do. I don't know if you've played MGSR, Bayo (I haven't yet myself), but those are the two closest games to it; maybe that kind of hack n slash isn't for you.

    I can't really get into MMO's, and I've tried. Not every game is going to appeal to you even if it's a property you might like. I quickly fell off the Earth Wars bandwagon after understanding exactly how deeply woven the microcharges where into it.

    I swear, I had an easier time actually getting figures of the characters I wanted in real life than I did in that game.

    My biggest failing is that without the map, it would actually be somewhat easy to get lost if you took an obscure enough side route since a lot of the environments end up looking rather same-y, particularly the early city segments -and the Proudstar portions admittedly get repetitive.

    While I understand that this is the unpopular opinions thread, do you actually have any plan of elaboration on that exclamation?

    Jealous of those who can feel anything positive toward the Bay films. I think many of the designs are clever and the movies have a ton of fantastic-looking toys attached to them, but I find the films so loathsome I don't want items that represent them in my collection.

    I wish something...better...would repurpose the aesthetic or designs.

    Devastation was a budget title from the get go. A side project for Platinum games while they struggled for funding.

    It had a good ground work and the boss fights were neat but it had it's limitations by nature that it was never meant to be this huge WFC game.

    The music slaps though, it's up there with the best in the franchise.

    I'm sorry you feel that way.

    I’m not the biggest fan but I will say it has two things going for it for me.

    The Music? Phenomenal.

    I did like how Prime showed remorse at Megs death in movie one.

    Adding one more.

    Armada Galvatron is okay, but the best color scheme for the mold is MegaZarak and I would go crazy if it was him as the surprise Cybertron leader.

    I've heard many say that they were "competent Michael Bay films, but not good Transformers films"

    The designs were horrible IMHO. For the most part, I thought the toys sucked. There are a handful I thought were pretty cool, but the majority were off putting. Also the films sort of coincided with the gutless Hollywood trend of the "combat shaky cam" A lot of times, you see the action, and it's hard to discern what is going on. This is why I love what Leitch and Stahalski did with the John Wick series. They both said it's all pointless if the audience can't actually process what is happening on screen.
