For those that attended PAX East 2017, you likely could not help but notice the large crowd testing Transformers: Forged to Fight, the new 3D-action fighter featuring our favorite robots in disguise. Keep reading to learn more about this new action brawler:


Game Informer recently announced its latest cover story which reveals TT Games’ new title, Lego Marvel Super Heroes. This came to a surprise for many gamers, since TT Games already developed two DC Universe Lego titles. As a Marvel fan myself, I was ecstatic to hear the news. I haven’t played a Lego game in years, so maybe this title would push me to play the other ones, like Lego The Lord of the Rings. As I began to think of all the games I’ve missed, I wondered what other franchises could be made into Lego games. I came up with some ideas (most ridiculous) that I believe would make perfect transitions into the Lego world. Check them out, and let us know what you would like to see Lego-fied.


My favorite games of 2012

2012 has been one hell of a year for gaming. With the beginning of a new generation of consoles just around the corner, game developers and publishers have been trying their absolute hardest to get as many triple-A titles out on store shelves as they can. In doing so, they’ve made the last year of the current generation of consoles unforgettable. We also saw the release of the PSVita and the Wii U, and the continuing rise of iOS and Android games. So, in honor of a fantastic year of gaming, I’ve decided to compile a list of my favorite titles of 2012.


With Assassin’s Creed 3 only weeks away, I’ve been pumping myself up by watching it’s amazing trailers and gameplay footage. This got me thinking: what other trailers have I been completely obsessed with? Turns out there are many, but here are my top 5 game trailers that I think brought the most hype to a game. Enjoy!


In 2010 High Moon Studios proved to the world that good Transformers games actually exist with their title Transformers: War for Cybertron. By delivering fantastic third-person action gameplay, stellar multiplayer, and the ability to transform at any time, War for Cybertron was what Transformers fans have always dreamed of. The game, however, was far from perfect. The environments looked exactly the same, the enemy AI wasn’t all that smart, and the narrative of the story left players wanting more.

Fall of Cybertron fixes all of this. High Moon Studios wasn’t satisfied with only pleasing Transformers fans; they wanted to please hardcore gamers everywhere. Fall of Cybertron brings drastic changes to every aspect of the game, making it more of a re-imagining of War for Cybertron, rather than a sequel.


I’ve really started to grow fond of More than Meets the Eye (MTMTE). When it first released I was much more in to its counterpart, Robots in Disguise (RiD). Lately, however, I feel as though MTMTE has been able to deliver a much stronger narrative with stories that I actually care about, as opposed to the constant and tedious power struggles that the characters in RiD face. After reading issue #9, I’m officially hooked. It’s not perfect, but the wonderful story telling mixed with the constant mysteries that are thrown at the reader are just too hard to resist.

The Transformers: More than Meets the Eye #9


For those of you who didn’t know (basically everyone in the world except for me) Monday marked the 28th anniversary of the first episode of the original G1 Transformers cartoon series. Naturally, I was thinking about the legacy the franchise as a whole has made for itself, and what lies ahead in the future. There was one idea in particular that I just couldn’t shake off, and I realized that this needed to happen: A Beast Wars video game.

Beast Wars was a spin-off of the G1 cartoon that lead to multiple series in both the U.S. and Japan. It took place in the same continuity as the 1980s series, but instead of robots transforming into vehicles, the show featured robots transforming into animals. It was a very strange concept, but it did extremely well for itself. This is the Transformers series that many people from my generation remember the most. I personally didn’t watch it much, but the toys that were based off of the show were amazing.

After seeing the success of both War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron (two highly praised Transformers video games), a Beast Wars video game would undoubtedly continue the trend of hardcore Transformers games…if it was done correctly. These are my ideas as to how this would be a success.


Transformers fans, your dream has finally come true: you can now play as the Dinobots on Fall of Cybertron multiplayer! Well, most of them, anyways. The Dinobot Destructor Pack which includes characters Slug, Grimlock, Snarl, and Swoop, allows player to customize their multiplayer characters using parts from the popular characters. While Sludge, the fifth member of the Dinobot team, is not included, High Moon Studios isĀ “taking note of his surprisingly huge fan base.”

This is the second multiplayer DLC that has been released for Fall of Cybertron this month. The first, called the Multiplayer Havoc Pack, included Wheeljack (my personal favorite), Ultra Magnus, Blastoff, Perceptor and Zeta Prime. A third DLC, Massive Fury Pack, has also been announced for September 25. This pack includes Autobots Hound, G1 Optimus Prime (which was originally a pre-order bonus from Gamestop), and Insecticons Kickback, Hardshell, and Sharpshot.

Here’s the trailer for all three DLC packs:
