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: 'Til all are Generation One

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…

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…

War For Cybertron (Singleplayer) review

I've been waiting a while for this, despite myself. While the PC version of this self-evidently console-orientated third-person shooter doesn't seem to have been given all that many developer/publisher cuddles, it exists, and I'm glad. I'm also moving house, so this first chunk o'opinion concerns just the singleplayer. I'm aware the multiplayer's a major component of it, and I have played some of that, but…

Shockwaves: War For Cybertron PC UK Delay

EDIT - Oh look, it is available after all. I am, as you might imagine, a teensy-little bit annoyed. EDITEDIT - Activision have just confirmed availability to me. I was told the wrong thing earlier, basically. Sigh! I've spent some time this week trying to track down a PC version of the upcoming (if you're British) / now on sale (if you're American) Transformers: War…

War For Cybertron: Cheaty Demo Impressions

'Cheaty' because there isn't a PC demo as yet, so this is all based on the 360 version. I'm currently trying to get hold of PC review code for the new Transformers game, due for release this week, but Activision UK's continued refusal to acknowledge RPS means I'll probably have to buy a copy myself on release day, and thus can't waggle my finger of…

Gobbets! War For Cybertron Backstory

Hasbro's head of designing imaginary robots, Aaron Archer, looks incredibly tired in the below video. He shouldn't be. He has an awesome job. I want his job. Anyway, here he is talking about the storyline behind the upcoming hopefully not-shit Transformers game, War For Cybertron. I'm not expecting amazing things from WFC, but I am genuinely looking forward to it in a massively nerdy way.…

Deceptive Con: War For Cybertron Exclusives

See this axe? Yes, the imaginary one I'm holding, made from laserbeams and impossible fury. Well, I'm going to grind it. I quite like Transformers. Ergo, I am quite looking forward to Transformers: War For Cybertron. One of the Transformers I most quite like is Shockwave. Shockwave is a playable character in War For Cybertron - but only if the game is pre-ordered from Gamestop.…

Robots Undisguised: 80s War For Cybertron

I've already giggled about this on Twitter, but the urge to nerd-share remains strong. I remain somewhere between cautious optimism and Great Fear about upcoming Transformers-does-Bad-Company action thinger War For Cybetron, but the below fan video switched me over to a big huge Want on the spot. All the stern-voiced macho posturing is removed and replaced with pew-pews, synth piano and Looney Tunes voices from…

Go, Bots! War For Cybertron Explained

I've only had passing interest in the upcoming Transformers shooty-mcthumpy game War For Cybertron until now, but something about the previews that hit various sites earlier this week, and especially the below video - the first significant chunk of in-game footage to date - has awakened NERD-HUNGER in me. The environments look big and detailed, the robots are an excellent hybrid of 80s blocks'n'colours and…

War For Cybertron – First Footage

Well, it's supposed to be the first footage of Transformers: War For Cybertron, and I think there's some in-game snapshots in there, but this is one of those cases where it's hard to judge precisely where the FMV ends and the in-game stuff takes over. So that means it's looking pretty spectacular and, dare I say it, "cinematic"... Ooh, I had a little shudder there.…
