Well, at least you're getting stuff. Here we're still stuck with DOTM wave 2.

Ouch. My target was stuck with the last round of DOTM a month after Prime was released. But still, that seems small in comparison to your problem.

Oh yes, Fall of Cybertron will be definitely an orgasmic game this year. And the toys are neat too!

Coincidently, I just happen to be playing through War for Cybertron (girlfriend grabbed a cheap $10 copy for me), and while it's fun... Maybe I just rushed through it. But it doesn't come across as epic looking as the screenshots made it look. Don't get me wrong, it's cool, but.. Lacking in some way. The characters (well, Megatron and Soundwave in particular) come across very wooden.

Megatron: "DARK ENERGON will give me the ULTIMATE POWER"
Any Other Character: "This is a bad idea.."
Megatron: "I WILL NOT BE DENIED! Give it to me!!"
Other: "But sir.."
Megatron: "The ULTIMATE POWER to control Cybertron!!"
Other: "...."

Taking down Omega Supreme came across as not-quite-as-epic as it should have felt. I mean, I just offed this giant titan of an Autobot basically by myself, simple little Megatron, but.. It didn't feel that way. It was cool, yeah. But not epicly cool.

Granted, I have no G1 attachment, really, so maybe that's a factor. Maybe I just lack the nostalgia factor.

All that said, it is fun. Transformation and such is very fluid, weapons are cool (though a few have ridiculous bloom that makes them basically useless to try and aim), and being able to play as Megatron or Starscream or Skywarp, all very cool. And the Autobot campaign seems somewhat better so far. Optimus is a man of action by necessity and all that, which gives his character some depth. Interesting dialog on their side. Breaking out of Kaon prison is where I'm at. Dummy. Of course Prime isn't there. Ect.

All in all, fun, if seemingly short. Might replay some of the earlier levels, I kinda just sped through them.

Both War for Cybertron and Dark of the Moon are put out by High Moon Studios and are (generally) well regarded. Others? Hard to say.

Every other TF game is horrible, except for WFC and (I guess, don't have it) DOTM. (It is a reshell of WFC, after all.)

Also, is it me, or does FOC Shockwave's altmode look like his G1 blaster mode?

He looks like the Lunar Limo:

But they'll probably fanmode it to have a handle and resemble a gun.

This looks interesting, I'll give it a listen.

ANYWAY, did anyone got any roboty goodness lately? Did you see Botcon news? Is anyone pumped about all dem Fall of Cybertron figures?

I'm excited for the FOC figures, especially Jazz and Shockwave. I bought my copy of WFC at Best Buy, so I got Jazz as a multiplayer character, so it'll be fun to have the figure of him.

The one I'm waiting most is Ultra Magnus, I mean check the guy:

An Optimus repaint that does not suck and is not a lazy White Prime deco.

That looks amazing. I'm not real excited for FOC Prime, but FOC Magnus looks amazing.

This needs bump for more discussion.

Have an IDW Megatron, on me.

Also, finished Fall of Cybertron last night. Epic. Conclusion. Great game! Loved getting one last chance to play a bunch of characters and the 'choose your side' for the final battle. Felt right. Environments were more varied too, which was awesome. All around awesome game.

You know what? You're right. That's not cool. You know what is cool? A two-foot tall Metroplex.
