    The big ones are Omega Supreme and Scorponok but i dont even think that is Scorponok its the only Decepticon to be big enough because its clearly not Devestator.

    Bumble Bee is in there too and Megatron and Optimus look pretty much like their old G1 forms!

    Dunno how this will be but it could be a good game, the movie games where awful!

    War for Cybertron.. is that a new line for Transformers?!?

    The characters are based on the Animated toys series. I wonder if my kids would like this game.. it looks pretty good.

    doesnt look like scorponok to me - dont forget that in the new movies, they made him 'small (scropion from the first movie)
    edit: according to the comments, its Trypticon and Omega Supreme


    To me, this looked like TA/supcom had buttsex with the cube thingo from the michael bay movies, and BAM. an RTS game.
    Edit: except comments say its a third person shooter? wtf?

    Tripticon. Though I haven't seen the video (at work) so I have no clue what we're talking about.

    I used to be addicted, knew far too many of them :) Though only the classic series.

    I was going to say its not scorponok, he's never been that big.

    Looks good to me, original stylee transformers on cybertron.


    The Cybertron times were much more fun then the earth stories, its basically a massive rebellion from what I remember, the autobots are regular folk and the Decepticons are the gov or the military right?

    Its been a while

    I am intrigued because it looks cool, but I dunno what type of game it will be. I am ok with a button masher, I like those style (DMC4 was AWESOME). RTS wouldn't be so bad either.

    And I have no idea who the big guys are... but they look epic.

    I remember trypticon being much bigger though. After all, he was his on city, battle station and in the video a Tyrannosaurus rex. :eek:

    It's not much but at least there is some insight to the game.

    I'm going to let other people play this first before I pick it up. Looks like fun but it's probably another crappy port with dated graphics and mediocre gameplay.

    I’m a huge Transformers nerd. I’ve collected the toys since the 80s. While I’ve eBayed a sizeable portion of my collection, I still have over 100 (of the more valuable ones) in their original boxes in storage lovingly bubble wrapped and maybe I will sell them later.

    Anyway, I have been waiting for this game for a while. I’m not familiar with the studio that developed the game but I’d still like to try it out. While I detest the multiplayer restrictions (class to vehicle), I would love even a decent/fun Transformers based PvP game. Not expecting much though.

    I always loved Jetfire. Looked like he was taken right off of Battletech. Plus, he was huge compared to most Autobots. You didn't see him much in the cartoons, but when you did he was kickin' ass.

    It's a shame kids of today get the bastardized plastic crap versions of the awesome METAL Transformers we used to play with.

    EDIT: This one, as there were other crappier versions.

    I just tried the demo on 360 and if you are into UT then you will like this. The only exception is that there is a RGP element to this game where you can "level up" on stuff. You have
    Sout: Dash, cloaking
    Scientist
    Leader
    Solider: Hover Whirlwind
    all with different weapons, abilities and upgrades. This is going to be fun and IMO a game with pre-ordering for.

    Hmmm looks like I might have to check this out, I'm a big transformers fan going way back! Any word on what type of DRM this will have?

    It's activision so more then likely it maybe typical DRM.

    Transformers - War For Cybertron

    I feel like a kid again. This games kicks ass! I like the idea of the Decepticon campaign starting at chapter I and the Autobot campaign starting at chapter VI. So you can play as the bad guys, then play straight through the good guy missions and its all one big story :)

    At the moment, Im taking Autobot heads off with the EMP Shotgun....Im Megatron obviously lol :rockout:
