Weekly News Roundup: 12/12/2010
We were told this was pre
Generation 1, not pre movie run-off.
Despite not making any sense, Hasbro is saying that
Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers Prime
are in the same continuity. This also includes the Exodus novel
that I didn't know or care about. Unsurprisingly, many are pissed about this
decision because fans were lead to believe that War for Cybertron was a
Generation 1 game during its development. That, and Transformers Prime
is so vastly different with the only commonality being Dark Energon. There
better be some kind of history lesson in upcoming episodes in Prime to
explain all the changes or this is just going to get more convoluted than it
Forza 3 is getting a DeLorean in an upcoming DLC pack. Oh wait,
Turismo 5 already has a DeLorean without paying for extra DLC. Better luck
next time, Forza.
1/4 scale Classic Predator prototype is looking good. Plus it comes with
three heads, unlike the smaller figures. I think fans would more prefer
removable mask, but we'll take what we can get.

ten more characters waiting to be announced for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3.
Holy crap, that's a lot. Mike Haggar is one of them, though, right?
Apparently there were four achievements in Ghostbusters that
couldn't be unlocked.
A patch was finally made available one and a half years later, except that
two of those achievements still can't be unlocked. So will fans have to wait
another coupe years? Speaking of Ghostbusters,
the next game will be a top-down shooter. There won't be any voice work
from the original cast, but players will get to drive the Ecto-4. There's an
Ecto-4? The perspective switch worked awesomely for Lara Croft and the
Guardian of Light, so maybe this will be good, too.
Marvel Pinball will be out on Xbox Live on December 8th and on PSN on
