Now, it's waaaaay to early for me to go getting my hopes up about this, but the very idea is enough to plant a seed of wishful thinking in the deep corners of my brain. After experience Batman: Arkham Asylum, it was made clear that franchises that deserve a good video game can get a good video game, if placed in the right hands.
Are these the right hands for a Transformers game? Time (and more trailers) will tell, but right off the bat I'm excited about the setting. No meddling emo humans to be found. Pure robot carnage. Bring it on.
