Transformers isn’t a new thing. They’d been around since the 1980s. They’d had games come out in Japan. They’d had games come out on computers in America. But somehow this is the first version of the franchise that got a console game over here. Why? This makes no sense?
Josh Garvey from the internet (ooooooh) comes by the show to take a look at Beast Wars Transmetals and to help catch me up on Transformers things since watching the cartoons is pretty much all I’ve ever done with them.
Learn such things as:
- The fluidity of time and how that really messes with the history books.
- The impossible nature of making new characters that won’t immediately remind people of other, already established characters.
- The way a toy franchise whose previous
commercial cartoon was based on making new characters, and thus new toys, adapts to a show with a very small number of characters.
- And so much more!
