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..

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 Confirms New Transformers, X-Men & Hero Titles Are On The Way Next Year

Transformers: War For Cybertron was a good game, but it lacked the polish to carry it through the year

We played it obsessively for about three weeks, but we haven't touched it since. Still, it feels like there's a great Transformers game dying to get out of Activision, so it's great to see them commit to another game in the franchise. As well as a new Transformers game, Activision's also revealed..

Depending on the retailer you ordered Transformers: War For Cybertron from, you got a bunch of different DLC codes

Soundwave, Jazz and Demolisher were all rewards for pre-ordering the game. Now they're fetching over $100 on eBay. Seriously. A listing ending on Monday scooped a whopping $105 for the Amazon bonus, Demolisher. Crazy. The other codes are netting between $20 and $50. What's hilarious is..

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..

Gah, I vouch never to use the term "PushSquarers" ever again. D'oh, already broken my vow haven't I? Oh well, whatever. There's a ton to make up for our dishonesty this week - E3 is out of the way and video games are releasing again. Lots of them, actually.

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..

Transformers: War For Cybertron Allows You To Play The Way You Want

Outside of the Modnation Racers, Split/Seconds and Red Dead Redemptions, there's one game lingering on the horizon that has us more excited than any other: Transformers: War For Cybertron

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..

Jazz, Demolishor & Shockwave All Join Transformers: War For Cybertron, Get Trailered

In this post we've included three teaser trailers for Jazz, Demolishor and Shockwave -- all of whom are "in" Transformers: War For Cybertron

.. As pre-order bonuses. That's right, if you buy the game from Best-Buy, Amazon or GameStop (US folks) you'll respectively be rewarded with Jazz, Demolishor or Shockwave. Naturally it's best to go the Shockwave route. Because Shockwave rules. Hopefully these..

Ironhide's Ready To Kick Hide In The Transformers: War For Cybertron

Hot-headed Ironhide's been announced as part of the cast for Activision's upcoming tradition Transformers title, Transformers: War For Cybertron

He'll be joined by Decepticon counter-part Skywarp, who had the ability to teleport in the original series. He'll have cloaking technology in the game, for the sake of balance we assume. Urgh. Everytime a character gets announced for this game we get all..

Long-time readers of the site will know we're overwhelmingly excited at the prospect of a good "traditional" Transformers game in Transformers: War For Cybertron

And thus with the announcement of representation from both the Aerialbots and Stunticons, our excitement goes up that little bit more. Both Air Raid and Breakdown will break away from their gestalt and join the battle for Cybertron..

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

Soundwave Superior... Constructicons Inferior!

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..

Transformers: War For Cybertron Is Heavy On Optimus Prime, Kinda Awesome

It's been a long time since that semi-decent Transformers game on the PS2

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:..

Transformers: War For Cybertron Barely Announced, Getting Preorder Bonuses

Y'know, we might be just having a blonde moment, but until we read about Transformers: War For Cybertron's preorder bonuses, we didn't even know the game had a multiplayer component

It must do though, because if you preorder the title from GameStop, you'll unlock Shockwave as a playable character in the multiplayer mode. Awesome. Does the game even have a release date?

Take that, Megan Fox and Shia whatsyername

You ruined Transformers. Now a generation of kids will think Transformers is all about personality-less lumps of CGI and gawky American humour. We're so glad the latest Transformers game, Transformers: War For Cybertron, actually looks like it could be good. Mainly because it's not tied into a bad film. But also because it looks awesome. And features Omega..
