Transformers: War for Cybertron

Transformers: War for Cybertron is a third-person shooter video game developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision.

The game takes place on the planet Cybertron, prior to the Transformers arrival on Earth. The Autobots and Decepticons are engaged in a civil war. The game can be played starting from either faction’s perspective, but begins chronologically with the Decepticon campaign. The game revolves around the use of a substance known as Dark Energon, which the Decepticon leader Megatron believes will allow him to return the planet to what he refers to as a golden age.

Constructicons

Devastator

The team’s combined form of Devastator is brutality in its purest form — his sole purpose is to destroy anything and everything that gets in his way. It is ironic that the suitably intelligent Constructicons should sacrifice their thinking ability in their combined form, but simple-mindedness is a common limitation of the assorted other first-generation combining Transformers, because Devastator’s thoughts and actions are limited to what his six components can agree upon at any given time. Consequently, Devastator seems like a being of instinct, lashing out at everything around him before contemplating the consequences, but he is also slow and lumbering and very easy to trip up.

Headmaster (Transformers)

Binary-bonding

When connected with each other, the human or Nebulan and the Transformer essentially share a single mind and can work together seamlessly, but when separated from each other, both retain their individual minds and bodies. This allows for greater cooperation, and with twice the experience, a better understanding of possible combat or other dangerous situations. The binary-bonding process does not damage the body of either party, and both parties are able to carry on with their normal lives, but it does generate a permanent, irreversible bond between their minds. However, the Headmaster component can find themselves with increased strength.

The process does have a few weaknesses. Some partnerships on both sides suffer from issues partners have with one another. For example, Vorath is a scientist while his Decepticon partner, Mindwipe is a believer in the supernatural, leading the two to bicker over conflicting ideologies. Also, headless Transformers can be stuck in vehicle mode when the Headmaster component is separated.

Transformers: The Headmasters

.

但是, 今次沒有”頭領戰士”.

頭領戰士是一隻小機械人加一輛交通工具:

小機械人會變成大機械人的頭部.

而該輛交通工具則會變成大機械人的身體.

.

.

那一輯卡通名叫 Transformers: The Headmasters.

港譯

langle langle 變形金剛

頭領戰士rangle rangle.

.

.

我猜想, 大陸可能會譯作

langle langle 變壓器

校長rangle rangle.

變形金剛

.

今早看langle langle變形金剛二rangle rangle.

估不到有這麼多的機械人.

電腦畫師們, 果然做足功課.

更估不到有這麼多款式的機械人.

牠們也是我年青時候, 變形金剛卡通的主要元素.

.

.

有合體機械人: 七隻”建造派”的機械人, 合體成”破壞者”.

有昆蟲機械人. 無數隻細昆蟲可以合體成一隻大昆蟲.

有女機械人.

有雙生兒機械人: 兩隻可以合體成一輛雪糕車.

有化身人類的機械人.

.

.

故事是類似卡通片的劇情, 沒有任何深度.

不過,  故事線順暢完整.

期待第三集. 不過, 要等到2012.

那時, 我已經是一個老人.

Three Laws of Robotics

.

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
