More details on Vicarious Visions' Nintendo DS War for Cybertron
Posted by News Fetcher on February 27 '10 at 10:30 AM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
IGN has posted some further details on Vicarious Visions' handheld version of Transformers War for Cybertron, for Nintendo DS. As with the 2007 Movie and Revenge of the Fallen DS titles, the game is split between Autobot and Decepticon editions; what IGN has now confirmed though is that each version will have a total of 15 - yes, fifteen - playable characters. Many of the characters will be unlocked during play, either by finding secrets in stages or through multiplayer mode. The article also goes into detail with a bit more information on the player swapping system, covering some interesting puzzle solving mechanics such as using the right combination of characters. The example cited involves using Jetfire to fly to an otherwise inaccessible platform and then using Bumblebee to slide through a small gap to reach an otherwise inaccessible area.

By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Last night Michael Bay was a guest on Starz' "In the House", and true to form, he took a little time out to talk about his upcoming projects including Transformers 3. While Michael Bay was tight-lipped about specific plans, he revealed that yes, himself and Paramount are experimenting with 3-D for some Transformers scenes. Michael Bay wants to see how it will look for his footage with lots of particles coming out of the frame. And of course, he also teased on adding new characters and new story revelations, although he's not given anything away:

Kotaku Hands on Impressions of Transformers War for Cybertron
Posted by News Fetcher on February 26 '10 at 03:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Kotaku have also posted an article talking about the console version of Transformers War for Cybertron. The article sets an excellent tone for the mindset of the developers with the opening quote:

"The goal was not to make the best Transformers game ever. The goal was to make a great game that was a Transformers game."

The article goes on to talk about some of the cool touches in the game, such as a More than Meets the Eye homage involving Bumblebee on a highway being pursued by Decepticon jets and the origins of Jetfire and Starscream, but there is also a good portion of coverage on what you have all been waiting to hear about - the gameplay! Players can take control of one of three members of a squad of Transformers, with online friends able to drop in and out to control either of the other two. There are stat boosting abilities, such as Optimus Prime's "Call to Arms" warcry move boosting the attack power of nearby friendly units, and transforming provides a quick way to get around the battlefield. Players can also strafe while in vehicle mode, even when playing as a "car" based Transformer like Bumblebee. Unfortunately though there is no cover system.

Buyer Beware - Three More Generation 1 Knockoffs
Posted by News Fetcher on February 25 '10 at 04:00 PM
By Sol Fury from TFW2005:
Vintage collectors beware, as there are three more Generation 1 Transformers remakes about to hit the market. Generation 1 Sideswipe, Red Alert and Protectobots Combiner Defensor are the latest Generation 1 characters to receive the knock off treatment. Defensor is relatively easy to identify as a remake by his lack of factory applied stickers (though seeing them in package might prove tricky). Check out a feedback thread by TFW member MegaMoonMan on this set for more information. Likewise, Sideswipe and Red Alert also lack their factory applied stickers - Sideswipe lacks the black chevrons on the side of the car, while Red Alert lacks the "Fire Chief" decals on his doors. Fortunately, both of these details are clearly visible through the front window of the box.
