None shall stand – Transformers games removed from Steam as Hasbro/Activision deal expires

Oh, how it pains me to say this. If you felt you could have waited an eternity to get around to playing Fall of Cybertron, War For Cybertron or Devastation, that trypticon of broadly well-received, Activision-published Transformers third-person shooters, I've got bad news. Here's a hint: they've been removed from Steam, plus all other digital marketplaces - as have subsequent and worse sequels. This is…

Feature: 21 Of The Best 7/10 Games

In Celebration Of Perfectly Average Action Games

We don’t do scores on RPS, but sometimes we mourn for the inability to deploy a 7/10. The ur-score, the most double-edged of critical swords, the good but not great, the better than it deserves to be, the guilty pleasure, the bungled aspiration, the knows exactly what it is, the straight down the line. One score that can mean so much. There is one particular…

Have You Played… Transformers: Fall of Cybertron?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Most Transformers games are awful, which isn't enormously surprising given we're talking about annual shooty-bang ties-in for bottomlessly stupid movies based on a toyline from the 1980s. But said toyline did inspire some excellent comics - including the current More Than Meets The…

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark And My Certain Doom

Sometimes in this absurd job I catch myself in the mirror, notice what I'm doing and have to tell myself to stop. I did that around three hours into Rise of the Dark Spark. I've played a great many games that are a great deal worse than this mostly recycled new Transformers game from Activision, but the reason this one had me sneering at myself…

Transformers Universe Footage Rolls Out

Three or four years ago, I would have fallen to my knees and begged for a Transformers MMO. Today I would not, which is partly because I feel totally burned out on MMOs and partly because my knees increasingly make this unpleasant clicking noise if I bend them too abruptly. But you can be damned sure I'll at least have a big old fiddle with…

T-Rexellent: Fall Of Cybertron Excavates Dinobot DLC

Hmm, this looks like old news, since the DLC has been out for a bit, but since we are the PC's premier site for Transformers news, I feel duty-bound to post it: below is a trailer for Fall Of Cybertron's Dinobot DLC. As you might expect, it allows you to play the lizardly Transformers in multiplayer. It also contains retro Optimus Prime, insecticons (I think?…

Fall of Cybertron Multiplayer review

Last week I told you all about Transformers: Fall of Cybertron's barrage of fanservice that is its singleplayer mode, and now here are some thoughts on its team-based multiplayer. No posturing Megatron-Optimus stand-offs or piloting of walking cities here: multiplayer is a completely different game, as is so often the case for shooters. While the campaign involves running and blasting easily-dispatched drones as an improbably…

Transformers Fall of Cybertron review

Third-person shooter Transformers: Fall of Cybertron was released yesterday in North America, but due to a last-minute bait and switch is still a couple of days off in the UK. I've cannoned my way through the singleplayer campaign, which I can tell you about below. A multiplayer report will follow, by the way - at the moment, the staggered release date and attendant timezone issues…

Fall of Cybertron Tomorrow/War For Cybertron Today

I suspect Peter Cullen could tell me he'd just murdered my mother, eaten my cat in a sandwich and set fire to my feet and I'd feel impossibly comforted, just so long as he did it in his Optimus Prime voice. It's that and many more giant robot-based, entirely unbreakable associations with childhood joy and wonder which means I'm excited to a slightly alarming degree…

Prime Optimus – Fall of Cybertron PC Details

The eternal six-year-old in me is quite excited about Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, even though I am well aware I should have moved on to grown-up's things by now. Well, someone make me a videogame about a cheese and wine party or paying the electricity bill and I guess I'll play that too. First though, I wish to heed the call of the last of…

Fall Of Cybertron Trailer Reveals Metroplex, Dinobots

The latest trailer for Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron is the one most likely to set giddy hearts racing, for it shows both dinobots and the enormous Metroplex in action, fighting and punching. There's an inspirational voice-over from Optimus Prime, too, which is something everyone needs to listen to when they're eating their wheaty breakfast. No illusions about this game being a big dumb firework display,…

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Has A Robot Or Two

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…

Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Rolling On PC After All

So I haven't actually played Transformers: War For Cybertron, but Alec liked "the bit where the robot punched the other robot." If there is a more ringing endorsement - aside from, hypothetically, "it let me punch, kick, crush, blast, boil, mash, blend, throw the sun at, and gravely insult Shia Labeouf" - I've yet to hear it. For the longest time, however, its upcoming sequel…
