Okay, it’s not really updated — it’s actually a whole new Transformers: War for Cybertron video where some talking head gives a few salient facts about the multiplayer modes (like the classes, and what they can do) and a lot of “rah-rah” shit about the game and engine and stuff. I just don’t know what to write about it since I already pointed out that War for Cybertron videos are better than masturbation only yesterday. Sure, I could mention that you finally get to see Omega Supreme in gameplay action, or that the dialogue in the middle of play sounds totally awesome, or that the seeker/jets class seems bewilderingly powerful compared to everybody else, but really, all you (and I) want to do is watch more game footage, so fuck it. It’s “updated.” Thanks to ScrappedAeon for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
