The armada one was pretty good. Hopefully this will be the absolute best TF game ever. I have both movie games. They had good points, but overall the gameplay was terrible. It would be cool to have a squad of random factions, but we probably wont see it.
i think you mean, "Hopefully this will be the absolute best TF game yet.
" Personally, i hope they get even better than "War for Cybertron" looks like it's going to be. (Anybody remember a discussion about Transformers and holodecks?)
As for the random factions, that was one of my suggestions for ismellicecream in his What would you like to see in a TF videogame?
thread. Because that WOULD be cool.
i think i even read somewhere--yeah, in my DreamWave "More Than Meets The Eye" book--that even though the Micromasters were created by the Autobots and the Decepticons, most of them split into anarchic gangs. i never got hold of any of the "Micromasters" comics, but that tidbit from "MTMTE" leads me to believe the Micromasters could conceivably qualify as canonical "random factions". Armada/etc. Mini-Cons, too, come to think of it--i understand that not all of the Mini-Cons embraced either the Autobot or the Decepticon banner. Of course, playing a Micromaster or a Mini-Con in a game starring Bulk Guzzlers
might not be the kind of experience most TF gamers would want. But splinter factions? Oh, yeah.
Didn't DreamWave have the Autobots and Decepticons left on Cybertron split into a bunch more factions in "War Within"--the Predacons, the Ultracons, etc.?
...i think i'm drifting off of "War for Cybertron" and just rambling about potential TF games now. i also think i've done that before. Oh, well.
