From what I’ve read, Hawkguy uses a bow and arrow and may, but probably doesn’t, transform into a hawk.

Hey look, it's every video game protagonist from the early 2010s

I’m not a comics guy so I know this is blasphemous to a certain group of people, but seriously, in the big picture, who actually gives a shit about hawkeye?

I know a lot of people are having trouble separating this game from the movies and seeing the characters as the straight-to-video sequel versions of the famous actors, but I can get passed that. However, they aren’t doing themselves any favors by saying that they’ll continue keeping this game going with exciting Read more

Wooo, I rant about More than meets the eye/Lost Light whenever possible. It is the most underrated story about the aftermath of war that I’ve ever read, with insightful opinions offered on survivor’s guilt, post-traumatic stress disorder (Poor Ultra Magnus!), and the hope for redemption.  It’s alternatively hilarious Read more

I’ve been watching Chris McFeely’s series The Basics, which is about Transformers characters, lore, toylines, history, and concepts. I love it, and its been a great insight for someone who has been a more than casual fan of Transformers since G1 was on tv, but who hasnt been much into the later series and Read more
