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…

Spinning bot kick: Street Fighter Transformers are a real, official thing, somehow

Sometimes, fictional worlds collide because a movie executive figures there's a ton of green to be made from a bunch of superheroes frowning at each other. Sometimes, they collide because a toy designer has a brilliantly stupid idea in the shower. Ladies and germs, I give you Street Fighter x Transformers, which stars, amongst others, Optimus Prime as Ryu, Megatron as M.Bison and Hot Rod…

A Very Important Guide On How To Recreate Optimus Prime In American Truck Simulator

It's been a week of unspeakable magnitude. Never mind the impending fall of society: the Peterbilt 389 has just been added to American Truck Simulator [official site]. The 389 is the updated model of the 379, a true legend of the road. I write that as though I know anything at all about trucks. I don't, apart this: Optimus Prime is a Peterbilt 379. Well,…

Rules Of Cybernature – Transformers: Devastation Trailer

While a lot of Alec's interest in Transformers: Devastation [official site] is down to it using ye olde Generation 1 robodesigns, mine is entirely founded upon it being a new third-person punch-o-beating game from the folks behind Bayonetta, Vanquish, The Wonderful 101, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Listing those names there, I realise that giant fighting robots transforming into cars and cassette players is actually…

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…

Back To Bay-Sick: Transformers – Rise Of The Dark Spark

No no no no no. No. In order to protect my sanity, I mostly ignore the existence of the current Transformers movie franchise but today, grave news demands that I devote an iota of my attention to Bay's bilge. The next Transformers game, Rise of the Dark Spark, will bring together the Cybertron universe and the preposterously dull and irritating bullshit of the live action films, including the upcoming…

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…

That’s Hot, Rod: Jagex’s Transformers MMO

I don't know a Rod, actually. But if I did, I would definitely be telling him that this news is hot. At least once a year since RPS has formed I've whined "whyyyyyyyyyyyy doesn't someone make a Transformers MMO?" Even the news that there was to be one purely for the Asian market didn't shut me up. I do whine a lot. However, hearing that…

No ‘Con: Transformers MMO Westward Bound

That'll be the initially Asia-only game being developed by Chinese outfit Netdragon. Toy-makers Hasbro (also responsible for brands such as GI Joe, My Little Pony and Nipple Torture Adventures In The 28th Century) revealed in their latest money hat conference that they'll be releasing the game in the US and Europe too. There remain no details, other than a tiny JPG that just might have…

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…

Transformers Transforming Into Not-Rubbish?

As Jim brain-farted last week, something has to follow/replace the current zombie trend, as its time basking in the golden light of zeitgeist can't last forever. Giant robots seem a pretty good bet: a nerd-loved science-fictional touchstone that's lately found traction amongst the streamiest of mainstream. That is, of course, due in large part to Michael Bay's Transformers movies. The problem is 1) those movies…
