I’m a self-confessed Transformers fan. I’ve been a fan since 1984. I’m old. When Transformers Devastation was unveiled at E3, I very nearly wet my drawers. This ticks all my boxes, Transforming robots, 1980’s cartoon style graphics and Peter Cullen’s dulcet tones every time Optimus Prime speaks. They’ve even persuaded Frank Welker to return as Megatron.
There’s a Comic-con going on in San Diego and as the Transformers franchise has included a fair number of comic series, I was hoping that Transformer Devastation would get something special for it’s Comic-con debut, and Platinum Games and Activision haven’t disappointed.
I’ve had a full-on nerdgasm and spotted not only Optimus and his nemesis, Megatron, but Blitzwing, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Thundercracker and Kickback to name but a few.
I’m excited for this release as much as I am for Halo 5 and Guitar Hero Live, and it’s hopefully coming very soon. It looks great already.
