To what do I refer? The upcoming game Transformers: Devastation, which features several playable characters who all look like how you remember them if you were born before the year 1990, meaning no Bay-formers here. But what does the game itself look like? Are you one of those weirdos that likes to know what your buying when it comes to your gaming entertainment?
