The lights are on
While visiting High Moon Studios' offices in San Diego, we were introduced to cinematics director Dave Cravens. Even if we hadn't been introduced, we definitely would have noticed one particular office that was covered wall-to-wall with Transformers toys and memorabilia. Since he was a kid, Cravens has soaked up all the Transformers trivia and merchandise that he possibly can, and has an extensive knowledge base of the fiction to go along with it. Considering that we work in an office full of gaming nerds here at Game Informer, it should come as no surprise that a couple of our editors know a thing or two about the robots in disguise. We found it only appropriate to have ourselves a friendly face-off with the master of Transformers trivia.
You can check out the video below. Who do you think came out on top?
Email the author Dan Ryckert, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
I'd say Dave, but only because he didn't have the number advantage on his side.
@Andrew Reiner...lol..that's too funny. Autobots!! Transform!!
When grown men talk about toys and animated television programs clearly designed for children, nobody wins.
I remember punching that guy in the face in Perfect Dark...
Reiner, are you going to be in the new one?
Only one thing to say : Epic quiz! The video was fun to watch and the hilarity that it ensues was also fun.
Thanks for the vid!
Woah! is that an uncharted 2 fortune hunter edition behind Reiner? Jealousy ensues.
I just figured the answer to any Transformers question was "robots in disguise". Guess I was wrong.
this is great because only people who know about what they are creating should work on games like this . The bad thing is transformers was ruined by hollywood . why do they have to ruin things & then try to make them again . companies should get it right the first time . I'm glad this guy is working on the new game !
@Reiner: Good call
Hilarious video. Props to Reiner and Miller.
I still say Dave won.
Were trick questions agreed to be fair grounds prior to the face-off? If not then Dave might have an automatic DQ on his hands (that is disqualification, not Dairy Queen, although ice-cream sounds good right about now).
@Reiner, you might want to check on the validity of the trick question aproach.
Who won? No clue but I feel that I lost. If I wanted to watch people half-remember Transformers, I'd go hang out at Dragoncon.
Nice video! Very entertaining.
I stopped watching a while ago after it was GI's turn to answer. This video reminds me of when I was almost killed by a Transformers fanatic.
dave totally one this one!! reiner and miller looked up questions.
i would've beat them both cuz i knew all the answers :-D
Minor niggles on both sides. It's the Protectobots, not Protectocons. It's Rumble not Rubble.
