It's the beginning of the end for Cybertron

Activision's released a super-stylish CG trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron, and it shows the robotic home-world on the brink.

Fact: the multiplayer in Transformers: War For Cybertron was amazing

In fact the whole package was pretty stellar, which lends hope to upcoming movie tie-in Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, which is in development at War For Cybertron studio High Moon.

High Moon's Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Game Looks Alright, But Those Bayformers Designs Are Awful

Y'know what, we kinda feel for High Moon Studios

A little bit. They are clearly a studio heavily passionate about the Transformers franchise and its lore. Their last game, Transformers: War For Cybertron, must have been a dream come true for everyone at the developer. A good Transformers game based on the characters and setting from the original anime series. But they've kinda fallen victim to..

High Moon Behind Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Movie Tie-In

As you might be aware, The Bayformers are back this year, promising more hap-hazard writing and slow-motion CGI

With them, come more mediocre video game tie-ins from Activision. Except there's a little ray of sunshine hidden in Transformers: Dark Of The Moon's press release — High Moon are handling the PlayStation 3 version of the game. You may remember High Moon from the surprisingly decent..

Transformers: War For Cybertron Gets The Sequel Treatment

There will be a new entry in the Transformers: War For Cybertron story-arc in 2012

The first War For Cybertron launched earlier this year and was well received due to its reverence for the original Transformers plot and characters. It was also pretty fun to play, but it did have some difficulty and technical issues. Nothing a sequel can't fix though. Transformers will get a movie tie-in before the..

Activision Talking To Hasbro About More Transformers Games

Transformers: War For Cybertron was a really good game

Really good. It proves there's a market for good quality Transformers content that isn't tied into dodgy live-action movies. That doesn't mean every game has to be a shooter however. Speaking at BotCon, High Moon Studio's Matt Tieger and Hasbro's Aaron Archer took part in a little Q&A session with fans. One of the questions asked pointed to..

Transformers: War For Cybertron GameStop Commercial Tugs On The Heartstrings

This Transformers: War For Cybertron commercial says a lot about the game

Firstly, Soundwave is actually a boom-box. Score one to developers High Moon. Secondly, Starscream is a whiny annoying idiot. Score two to developers High Moon. And finally - the ad features Stan Bush's "The Touch". Score three to developers High Moon. Everytime we hear that song we're transported to a dodgy VHS..

We know - recent Transformers games haven't had a great pedigree. But they were movie tie-ins and this one is not. The multiplayer is something that particularly has us excited. Check out the trailer above and..

Create Your Own Transformer Feature In Transformers: War For Cybertron Looks A Bit Disappointing

When we were younger, we dreamt of being a Transformer

We'd be a Ford Capri, with missile launchers coming out of our headlamps, and big Batman prongs on the top of our head. It's exciting, then, to hear that the upcoming Transformers game Transformers: War For Cybertron (which incidentally looks really good) includes a character creation mode. Sadly, it appears that Modnation Racers/LittleB

Bored of the Bayformers and Megan Fox pouting? Us too

We want a real Transformers experience, and thankfully Activision's latest title, War For Cybertron, looks set to capitalise on that. Aside from being a new Transformers game that actually might be good, the game's going to have three-player online co-0p, multiplayer, and epic God Of War-esque set-pieces. Obviously, playing as Transformers..

What with the recent Bayformers movies, we'd given up hope of a more traditional Transformers experience. Thank goodness for High Moon Studios, who appear to be keeping our dream alive with Transformers: War For Cybertron. The big shoot-out with Omega Supreme at the end looks really fantastic. <div style="width:..
