Him Grimlock King of Best Playable Characters in Fall of Cybertron

The first footage of Grimlock from the Transformers: Fall for Cybertron is out, and it looks pretty great. He’s a pure melee character, he has a sword and shield, he can bite drones in half in his space T-Rex form (he can also bang a gong and get it on, I’m told). It sucks that his dinosaur form is tied to a rage meter, but I suppose if he could transform at will players would just be in dinosaur mode all the time, so I guess it makes sense. Oh well. If you stick through the end of the video, you’ll get to see another Dinobot make an appearance — and you can see the character art for all the Dinobots over at Seibertron. I don’t know if they’ll all be playable, but if I get to play as Grimlock with the other Dinobots rampaging around me, Fall of Cybertron may end up as game of the year by default.
