Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is coming out on PC after all, which means I now have free rein to get all over-excited about it – even if I am worried by all the grey corridors of its predecessor and the terrible choice of music in the below trailer. But, sound and pre-renderness aside, gosh! What a lot of fan service is in here. It’s got all my favourites – Shockwave, Bruticus, the Dinobots, Metroplex…. All that’s missing is my beloved psychopath Galvatron, my old, poorly-painted miniature model kit of which you can see above. Of course, they’ll need to kill off Megatron to get him in, but as technically FoC is a prequel to the familiar Transformers crashed-on-Earth-and-started-fighting-again tale I guess that can’t happen. Boo! They could go down the nu-comics route of making Galvy an entirely different character, but that’s just stupid. STUPID!
ANYWAY. Trailer! Exciting robots! Awful music! An Autobot the size of a city! Also on PC! Please have wide-open areas like this video suggests!
