After seeing some more footage from the game, I decided to preorder it. I need this.
Me being extremely tired did not stop me from playing a bit of Transformers. Initially not super exciting.
I finished chapters 1-4, mostly playing with Optimus and Sideswipe. Although the levels are bland and empty, the battles are fun Bayonetta-style challenges. There was a sidescrolling bridge sequence with Optimus shooting at stuff while driving which was more or less exactly the same as a game I made in COMAL 80 in the 80s. Weird.
completed the game on Warrior (2/3) difficulty (Story).
The game was getting a bit difficult, so I went back to the Ark and fed the lower-level weapons to the high-level weapons, and then the rest of the game was pretty easy. The final Megatron-Optimus fight in space was pretty rad, and the end credits were awesome in the way that the original promo paintings for the toys were. This was a good Transformers game.
