    War for Cybertron was the best Transformers experience I've had in 15 years. They do the game so well, it's like a Transformers theme park ride in your home. And Peter Cullen is an institution in the series. Don't know why they moved away from Welker as Megatron (cost? not enough like Hugo Weaving?), but the voice acting in these games is top notch just like everything else. Can't wait.

    Ha. Just when you thought Mr North might be slowing down a bit. You cannot fault the dude's work ethic.
