Transformers:Fall Of Cybertron Massive Fury Interview With David Cravens
AntDaGamer: So you guys have made tons of Transformers DLC. Out of the team, which one is the team’s favorite?
Dave Cravens: Tough call, that’s like asking a parent who their favorite kid is. But for us as a studio? I’d have to say the Dinobots have carried a special place in most people’s hearts. The good news is EVERYONE is super passionate about whatever their favorite Transformer is here.
AntDaGamer: Favorite Dinobot?
Dave Cravens: For our DLC pack, I’d have to say my favorite Dinobot is Slug. I like him because he’s smaller, and quicker than his brethren and still packs a punch. In REAL life I’d go with Snarl. As a kid, he was my first Dinobot I ever got as a toy.
AntDaGamer: Favorite Insecticon?
Dave Cravens: Hardshell. That guy is a bruiser in multiplayer. Real “fake” life? Sharpshot. He just looks cool to me.
Dave Cravens: You’ll find most of us online a good amount during the week. Once it came out, I was sure to play through the entire single player campaign right away because I wanted to experience it as a fan would. If I do say so myself, I think we as a studio ROCKED IT! You’ll see me online now and then causing trouble.
AntDaGamer: Ok Serious Questions…
Dave Cravens: What? WHY?…
AntDaGamer: Why where some of the characters original names changed in the game?
Dave Cravens: We don’t have any control over that, that’s a Hasbro decision, and I’m not always privy to what the reasons are.
AntDaGamer: How much can we expect out of Tranformers Post Launch DLC? What all is planned?
Dave Cravens: Unfortunately I can’t speak of the future. Always shifting the future is. Difficult to see. That, and I’m not allowed to talk about it.
AntDaGamer: Is there anything you guys wanted to do with the DLC that you couldn’t make happen?
Dave Cravens: As a developer, there are always things you want to do with your game that you don’t have time for. That goes for DLC too. That goes for anything. Its bittersweet to talk about it publically, because then fans would be all—“Oh scrap! That would’ve been awesome! Why DIDN’T you do that?” There are a thousand reasons NOT to do so many things, the least of which are never time and money. What I AM impressed with is how many things we DID accomplish in the DLC and the game as a whole! We as a studio are very proud of that, and firmly believe this will go down in history as the greatest Transformers game of all time.
Dave Cravens: You and that future again! Let’s live in the moment. Right NOW you have the greatest Transformers game of all time on the shelf of your favorite retailer just WAITING for you to buy it! I hate wasted potential, so help that brand new copy of our game live up to its potential! Play it hours on end, and bask in every minute of awesome enjoyment you can out of it! Seize the moment, EGM readers. Seize it today!
