Forgive my geekiness

A little part of me is still a Transformers fan, having grown up with the Gen1 cartoon and still buying some of the comics once in a while (most recently, the two graphic novels "Hail Megatron").

That little part of me let out a big squee when it saw this trailer for an upcoming Transformers game:



Visible and recognised so far: Starscream, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Optimus Prime, Megatron, Soundwave, Trypticon and a bad@$$ looking Omega Supreme.
(possibly also an insecticon, maybe Cliffjumper...too hard to tell).

Silly fandoms.
If I can still like Transformers after more than 20 years (feeling very very old right now, ha ha), what am I going to be like with Avatar (Last Airbender, not Cameron's)?
*imagines self in retirement home, still doodling little Zhaos everywhere*

Just letting you guys know that the NoSelfControl club is now a group on DA. Anyone can join! We've also started a new contest for the relaunching of the club. To get all the details, see the journal here:

Huh. Looks interesting enough, but it looks like those designs are based more on the new Transformers Animated series more than anything else.

There seems to be some influence from it indeed.
At least Prime doesn't have a mouth- not a fan of Prime having lips of any sort, ha ha!

Le jeu a l'air tellement cool!! J'ai vraiment hate de voir les reviews et hands-on :D À défaut d'être vendue a Transformers, j'suis complètement vendue a n'importe quoi avec des robots qui se tappent dessus XD

...I have not heard of this game. It looks FANTASTIC. Wow...

I really wish they would do a semi relaunch of the g1 universe with a little comic universe thrown in for flavor. People have seen that a relaunch can be adult oriented and popular (look up GI Joe: Resolution). Even if it's just a "movie", give us something...that's not crappy cg like beastwars or the armada/energon series.

Haha, I just showed my age, didn't I? Can't help it. LOVE Transformers.

Looks way better than those new movies... I think the camera work is too shaky, like they are trying to hide something... but I might buy it if it "feels" like the old Transformers!

Those robots are pretty cool! They should make them into toys! I bet people would buy them!

Wow, violent.

Also, neat designs. Good designs wouldn't have saved the movies, and I know it's foolish to even think they might go with something that doesn't look retarded, but I sure wish they'd used these designs.

Also, the game will suck. It may look neat, but it'll probably play like a hunk of garbage. You know, as far as games go.

Woot! I've been a Transformers fan for years, even through its US and Japanese versions (seems to swap back and forth). I have to admit, my favorite of al the different series was Beast Wars, for the complexity of subplots. Silverbolt and Black Arachnea... Yes! Also Dinobot! And Dinobot/RatTrap interaction.That video game trailer looks suspiciously liek a cinematic trailer though...Hm...

Hades, I'm still a fan of Thundercats and The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers, too. "Hello, this is the Queen? Where is the pizza I ordered? The one with anchovies, and peanut butter?" *snicker* What's up, Doc?

Old fandoms never die. They just lurk in the corner, back arched, waiting to pounce in a ball of fluffy fut. Oh, wait, or is that the resident feline?

Wow...with that animation...I'd prefer a movie to a game! LOL 'cause the game animation is never as good as the cinematics.

Still...cool and awesome beyond words.

MAN, I sure hope the game's good as the trailer.
