I know a great drinking game
Put on a Transformers movie. Take number 4 for maximum effect.
…a human’s orange face hurts your eyes.
…explosions means fireworks everywhere.
…lethal wounds are healed by car polish.
…an attempt is made at emotional engagement/humorous shenanigans/dramatic oneliners.
…you wonder whatever happened to Marky Mark.
…Optimus ‘freedom is the right of every sentient being‘ Prime tries to kill everything on sight.
This is also most likely what transpired when Activision decided they could make the critically acclaimed War for/Fall of Cybertron games tie in with the movie. Rise of the Dark Spark only just about destroyed High Moon Studios‘ carefully built franchise.
But there is hope.
PlatinumGames created the delightful nostalgia-fest Transformers: Devastation.
They’re also kicking ass with IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Crafting something beautiful from IDW’s Transformers is only a step away. And why stop at games…
