        Sample quest:

        Help! I can't keep my house clean! All these scraps of metal is piling up and I can't spend every day cleaning. It's was bad enough when it was just dirt and sand, but these Decepticons sneak in at night and dump their trash all over my house. Bring me 12 Roomba brains so I can construct the ultimate vacuum cleaner.

      The art style is nice, but yeah... it's probably going to suck.

      This is exactly how Transformers SHOULD look, Michael Bay. What a beautiful thing to see two separate edges fit together flush, minus 10,000 tiny, blurred moving parts. We absolutely need a cinematic reboot of this franchise.

        Stop your whining. Just because all the Cybertronians look like aluminum cans caught in mid-shotgun blast doesn't mean it's not great artwork.

        Oh wait, that's exactly what it means. Hey, while you're rebooting, can we please get Frank Welker back on board? He's ripping it up as Megatron in Transformer's Prime.

        Agreed. I can't express enough my disappointment with the way the Transformers look in the movies. I don't know how many times I said "what the fuck am I looking at?"

      Wish I could get excited for this, but MMO + Transformers goes together about as well as Cheese Grater and Testicles does in my mind.

        Why single out Transformers? A true cynic, such as myself, would use this opportunity to bash all MMO's. Directing all your cynicism towards any one MMO specifically... seems a waste.

      I like the art style. The look of the 'robot' is decent, BUT facially, I think it looks more like a GoBot. :P
