So Activision is working on this game, in which the title artifact (described as the antithesis to the Matrix of Leadership) awakens and opens dimensional portals between the Cybertron of the Cybertron games (before the end of Fall) and the Earth of the Transformers movies (around or after 4).

In addition to the single-player, Escalation has been fleshed out (with additions such as offensive-defensive installations and boss encounters dubbed power foes) and linked with the campaign via a unified leveling system. Over 40 playable characters are confirmed for it as well.

Thoughts?
Long live Cinematech.

Sounds interesting. I've heard the other games in the series were pretty good, unlike most licensed games.

Lots of potential with this setting. It just doesn't have to be the movies and game timelines they connect, they could very well link the Generation 1 series, Beast Wars, and the others as well if the Dark Spark allows interdimensional travel...

EDIT: Wait, Beast Wars is actually a part of the G1 timeline, it's just in the distant future. I guess you could try for the Japanese versions or the Transformers Prime timeline, that could work.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.
Saw this in my Game Informer a few days ago. Very interesting indeed. I love seeing art designs clash, and having two Optimus Primes and two Megatrons fighting at the same time is just excellent. I wonder if, or how, the films will explain this crossover.

I've finished the 3DS version the week I got it and it's creating some serious Fridge Logic to me. What are the odds that they will make a sequel? We have the Dark Spark intact and it's heading for the G1 universe in the ending screen. There's also room for explaining the rest of the Transformers scattered throughout the universe as well. Just what happened in the void between Lockdown seizing the MacGuffin and the Autobots attacking his hideout? Just how did the Autobots knew about the Dark Spark and beat the Decpticons to it if Shockwave had an rather vague theory about it's location? And what happened to Starscream? Personally, I was expecting him to take the Dark Spark for himself and using it against everyone who doesn't side with him rather than disappearing from the story.

So just out of boredom and the fact that I own the 3DS version, I've created Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark and the character page. And they need some Wiki Magic considering how lukewarm the game turned out to be.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
