First Look At Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Nintendo 3DS Edition - Images & Information
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 05:30 AM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
Video Game News Website Silicone Era has published an article with in depth information about Transformers: Rise Of The Dark Spark Nintendo 3DS edition.

Developed by WayForward Technologies for the Nintendo 3DS, this version is a Strategy RPG unlike its Console counterpart which is a third person shooter. This game is highly reminiscence of Glu Mobile's turn based tactic game; Transformers G1: Awakening.

"The melee combat is a turn-based combat experience, where one of your units can go toe-to-toe with an opponent,” WayForward said to us. “There will be three rounds to do as much damage as possible before the round ends. If you’re successful and deplete your opponent’s health, they will be removed from the map."

Transformers G1: Awakening was the perfect Transformers game for mobile. After all these years, the game still has an excellent replay value. It's clear that WayForward Technologies took the right decision to follow Glu's footsteps.

Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark 3DS Version Details
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 05:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Siliconera has posted a preview article for the Wayforward developed Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark strategy RPG for the Nintendo 3DS. The game looks set to play out in a similar fashion to the Fire Emblem or Advance Wars series, with you able to move units on a 2D grid, while the skirmishes between units play out in 3D cutscenes.

What is revealed here are some of the mechanics that underpin the gameplay of the title. Each character will have seven different attacks of varying strength, each one needing an escalating number of points to use. A point is earned by a character each turn, with bonus points awarded for blocking enemy attacks. Part of the strategy sounds set to revolve around picking whether to employ low-level attacks to harass enemies, or to take a few rounds to stock some points to bring out a more powerful attack. Each character is also going to have a character-specific super move, which is activated by using a specific amount of Energon, which is limited for each mission, so you need to think carefully about which moves you use. One of the example super moves given is Optimus Prime's Vanguard ability, which makes enemies focus on Optimus to give other allies time to withdraw or regroup.

Tom Scioli and John Barber Transformers VS G.I. Joe #1 Creator Commentary
Posted by News Fetcher on June 08 '14 at 02:45 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Multiversity Comics have posted a detailed and in-depth creator commentary with John Barber and Tom Scioli about Transformers VS G.I. Joe issue #0, the Free Comic Book Day special edition. In this creator commentary we have a look at some of the initial process drawings which were created by Tom Scioli to help shape the style of the series. We're also told about a few of the creative process decisions on the series, such as having Cobra Commander gun down some greenshirt Joes to establish him as a thread, and the decision to have a talkative, handsome Snake Eyes rather than his traditional depiction - which of course we may be getting later on. There's also an interesting glimpse of the original idea which was to have Bumblebee be the only Transformer to turn up, and the wounds the various Joes took be the result of a misunderstanding.

It's an interesting insight into the creative process behind what is destined to be a divisive ongoing series - check it out for yourself for the full details.

Transformers: Legacy - A Celebration Of Transformers Package Art Book Delayed
Posted by News Fetcher on June 07 '14 at 10:30 PM
By SilverOptimus from TFW2005:
After several small delays, Transformers: Legacy - A Celebration Of Transformers Package Art Book release date has been pushed to next year.

Targeted initially to release mid this year to coincide with the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers Franchise, the book was to showcase the packaging art of the Transformers toys throughout the first 10 years.

Book Description:
Remember the thrill of tearing open a gift on Christmas morning, discovering a brand-new Transformer in a shiny new box? While the toys were amazing in their own right, what made the packages stand head-and-shoulders above the myriad competing action figures on shelves was the stunning box art. Transformers: Legacy collects hundreds of beautifully airbrushed paintings from the iconic first decade of The Transformers. Hasbro, Takara, and private collectors opened their archives, yielding an unparalled level of quality. Essays and interviews from the original illustrators give unprecedented insight into the process behind the art. This book is chock-full of extras, including never-before-seen artwork from toys that never were, original design sketches, catalog artwork, and more.

Authors:
Jim Sorenson
Bill Forster

Hardcover: 300 pages
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1613779437
ISBN-13: 978-1613779439

The book's new release date is January 13, 2015

Warbotron have announced they are making a third combiner team set, which will be an unofficial Computron. Their Computron is being made at an enormous, pseudo-masterpiece scale which stands twice the height of Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime fully combined. This announcement comes off the back of their other two announced combiner projects, a Bruticus and a Menasor, the former of which is still part way through being released and the latter of whom we've not seen a whole lot on. This will be the second unofficial Computron to be released in the coming months, with Maketoys also releasing their own take on the Autobot gestalt.

Transformers Human Alliance Arcade Game Arrives in the US

You might recall some news last year about the Transformers: Human Alliance Arcade game that Sega was developing - a lightgun game putting you in the metal boots of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Sideswipe as they blast their way through scores of Movie-verse Decepticons.

Well, it seems like it is now arriving at Dave & Busters Video Game Arcades in the US, as it is advertised on their website, and has been reported in one of the New York branches via this post over on Sega-16.

If you fancy checking out some Transformers arcade game action, why not see if your local Dave & Busters is also sporting the cabinet?
