Site News Editor And Writer Wanted!

Transformers Video Games Logo

In order to try to improve the content on the site, we’re looking to recruit some volunteers to help with the content on the site! We want to bring in a few new people to help keep the site up-to-date and expand on the content featured here to help make this the best website out there for anyone who is in to Transformers video games. So what are we looking for? Basically, we need two types of people:

News Editor – someone who will be able to keep an eye on on what is happening in the world of Transformers gaming – from contemporary consoles, handhelds, online gaming, and future developments and source news, interviews, screenshots, videos and interviews for us. Ideally someone with good industry connections, good research skills or the will to develop them!

Reviewer(s) – people who are able to review Transformers games on any format, new or old to allow us to build up a comprehensive guide to every game ever released. We don’t need people to source screenshots as we can arrange these ourselves – just a passion for the games themselves. Just take a look at the reviews on the site to get a feel for what we are looking for.

This is a non-profit making site so we can’t pay you for your work. We are considering adding a small sales section to this site offering classic Transformers games for sale and we may – in time – be able to offer some of our reviewers and writers complimentary copies of current and retro games and we hope to be able to source review copies of forthcoming titles as well. You don’t need any formal qualifications – just a passion for gaming and the ability to write clear, entertaining and concise English.

If you are interested, send examples of your work to us at contact@transformersvideogames.co.uk

An Apology…

I’d just like to apologise to all of you who have been visiting the site lately. For the last few weeks things have been somewhat hectic with our Transformers convention, Auto Assembly and we have been running a few major promotions including a “Twelve Days Of Christmas” event which has seen us organising 12 major news announcements about the convention and releasing corresponding videos on our Youtube Channel. With several hours worth of videos being editing, and coping with an incredible influx of bookings, it’s taken up most of my spare time keeping up with this.

As such, I haven’t been able to update this site or post any news for the last couple of weeks. I’ve also had to cope with a system failure of my Playstation 3 and had to purchase a new machine so I haven’t been able to conduct the PS3 game reviews that I was hoping to have done for the site. I do have a lot of reviews in progress so these will be uploaded shortly, as will updated information for the guide as well as more photos. I’m also looking at bringing in some more writers / content editors to help keep the news more up-to-date when I am not able to do this myself.

Finally, I am hoping to get the shop online shortly where you’ll be able to buy a wide selection of Transformers games. I already have a wide range in stock and should have this expanded shortly in time for a proper launch.

Online Games Shop Coming Soon

Transformers Video Games Logo

Following our attendance at Auto Assembly Europe earlier this month, we are now in the final stages of getting our online shop ready to launch. You’ll be able to buy a range of classic Transformers games directly from the site dating right back to the first ever game on the Commodore 64 and Spectrum released in 1985 up to the most recent releases on the XBox 360 and Playstation 3. We’ll be offering trade-in deals and we’ll also be looking at buying your unwanted collections of Transformers games and as well as the more common titles, we’ll aim to bring you as many of the harder-to-find games as we can as well as the occasional toys, comics and other Transformers items.

While we can’t promise to offer you the best prices online for these games, we will aim to offer you exceptional service and expert knowledge from a team that knows these games inside out and from the only source online that specialises in Transformers games. If there are any games in particular that you are looking for or if you have a collection for sale on any format no matter how old, please get in touch with us as contact@transformersvideogames.co.uk

Transformers Video Games Attended Auto Assembly Europe

Auto Assembly Europe

Last weekend we made our first “official” appearance at an event when we attended Auto Assembly Europe in Uppsala, Sweden over the weekend of 12th – 13th November. We had a table at the convention and chatted to attendees all weekend while taking the opportunity to preview our forthcoming games shop that will be on the site shortly. On sale we had games ranging from the early titles on the Commodore 64, Spectrum and Famicom right up to PS3 and XBox 360 and some of the more unusual Japanese import games.

Transformers Timeline Developed For Fall Of Cybertron

Fall of Cybertron Game Informer Preview 72

Over the years, with all of the various Transformers comics, television shows, video games and toylines, we have been faced with countless variations on the history and chronology of Transformers with little consistency amongst all of the different continuities. Now, in an attempt to make sense of some of these and to establish some form of coherent storyline that brings all of their games together to make sense, Hasbro and High Moon Studios have worked closely to develop a Transformers Timeline.

Game Informer have the first details of this online as part of their ongoing coverage of Fall Of Cybertron and you can see the Timeline on their site here:- http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2011/10/26/the-transformers-timeline.aspx
