Judging By The Cover: Judging Transformers: Devastation

That cover could do with a wee bit more in the way of smoke and laser blasts.

I'm not going to froth at the mouth here. That is Devestator. He's a Combiner. He's made up of 5 individual Transformers, each of which is a construction machine.
Get it? They look like they construct things, but they devastate instead.

So, am I the only one who thinks these should *ALL* end with that classic "mic dropping" sound effect?
All the zingers are SUPER strong and awesome! In my mind I just hear that sound of 'being served'.
Now that I think about it I even see Yahtzee looking absurdly cross, with his crossed hands making Westside symbols like he's on a really bad 90's rap albumcover. :O

Practice your french. I know just about enough french to order an ice cream, and I still felt faintly disgusted at whatever you were playing at in the titles.

Not disgusted enough to avoid that horrible adverb but there we are.

Yeah, why does the title look like it was done in Microsoft Office?

I was kind of hoping it'd be done in french and english all the way through.

Sometimes, I can't tell if Yahtzee really doesn't know anything about some of this pop culture stuff or if he's just really good at pretending.

Hey, at least the guys on the cover weren't reflecting some sort of fire like all of those modern war games.

Oh, as soon as he said the bit about Devastator, I thought "he's gonna boil so much fanboy piss!"

Are these individual construction machines all painted flourescent lime green and/or violet?

They are lime green.

It's a legit color for construction vehicles.

Ayup. Look up "Constructicons" in Google.

AH, my eyes! That shouldn't be a legit color for anything... except maybe techno raves.

That's the point.... they WANT you to see them...

...so when you run into them due to blindness, they can claim you were at fault

The audio for the title menu could've done with a wee bit more of "The Touch". Although I think I'd have suffered an 80's overload if they'd thought that far ahead. Or back.

I think I could live with being touched up by a Yahtzee video. I mean wait, what?

Hey, whatever floats your boat. Tell you what, I'll pop the vid right here and you can Touch yourself to your hearts content:

This hasn't gotten weird at all...

AAAAAAAAAAAH YEEEEEEAAAAAAHHH!

Such great music, it complements the robots perfectly...

Where was I the last four minutes...

That cover logo should have had way more cybernetic embellishment.

You know Yahtzee, there actually IS a transformer that turns into a combine, Thunderhoof from the current Robots in Disguise cartoon. Of course his robot mode doesn't have a cowboy hat, more like moose antlers made out of the thresher, but isn't it just hilarious when you say something sarcastically and it turns out to actually be like that?
