Despite the rumours of the past few decades
1994's Vortex might not have been a smash-hit, but it was arguably one of the most technically impressive uses of Argonaut's Super FX chip - the hardware which made games like Star Fox and Stunt Race FX possible. Featuring a transforming craft known as the Battle Morphing System which could shift between...
Transform and squid out!
Nintendo's regions have had their ups and downs with Splatfest themes, with some being much better than others. Nintendo of America has a doozy on the way, though, tying in with Hasbro for a Transformers event. The 24-hour face-off in North America will be Autobots vs Decepticons, with each player receiving a cool t-shirt...
Feeling the G-Force
Back when arcades really mattered, Sega was one of the industry's big hitters. The company not only produced amazing titles like Golden Axe and Alien Storm, but also ran a pretty amazing line in dedicated coin-op cabinets. Titles like After Burner, Space Harrier, Out Run and Thunderblade were all housed in massive, hulking units...
Till all are one
Chari-Sou DX3: Time Rider - the latest entry in the series known as Bike Rider here in the West - is getting Transformers crossover content in its native Japan. The update will be available as DLC for 200 Yen, and will unlock various Transformers-related features in the popular 3DS eShop title. You'll be able to play as...
A decent game in disguise
After reviewing the absolutely horrid Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark on Wii U, it would be hard to get our hopes up for the 3DS iteration if it weren't for the name on the back of the box. Unlike every other version of the game, Rise of the Dark Spark on 3DS was produced by the handheld experts at WayForward...
Less than meets the eye
Whether it's Batman, Gears of War or Zelda, it's always a gamble when a beloved series leaves the developer that created it in favour of a new one. In many of these cases it's because the publisher wants to churn out annual or semi-annual instalments in a profitable franchise, and one studio is not enough to carry this...
Could be the closest we get to a Western release of Super Robot Wars
New details on Activision's latest Transformers title, Rise of the Dark Spark, have emerged in the most recent issue of Game Informer, including the first basic information on WayForward's 3DS version of the game. WayForward is best known among Nintendo fans for its Shantae and...
With instructions to build your own!
New York Lego builder Baron von Brunk has already built a giant, working NES controller and a series of Nintendo console transformers like the N64 and the original Game Boy, which is currently a Lego CUUSOO submission. Now von Brunk assaults us with VANTAGE, a transfo
The trailer will rip out your optics
Last week we revealed that Activision was preparing a new game in its Transformers series, and that said game would be coming to both the Wii U and 3DS consoles. More details have now emerged, including information on which companies are handling development. According to Game Informer, Texus-based Edge of...
You can win if you dare?
While it's always worth taking listings on Amazon with a pinch of salt, when one comes out of the blue — and appears on multiple platforms to boot — there's probably an element of truth in there. Listings have appeared on the popular online retailer for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, the next instalment in the...
The worlds of Transformers and video gaming collide
Like any successful toy line, Transformers has seen its fair share of video game adaptations — earliest of which can be traced all the way back to the Famicom, the Japanese version of the NES. However, this latest Transformers gaming crossover has "weird" written all over it. Manufactured by...
Just in time for Christmas
While it's easy to get excited about the new games coming to the Wii U and 3DS, it's worth remembering that there are an awful lot of Wii and DS consoles out in the wild, and plenty of people still rely on these superseded formats for their interactive entertainment — hence Activision's recent announcement of...
