Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark leaked: not a movie tie-in

The next big Transformers game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Nintendo 3DS (strangely), and Wii U has been leaked - it goes by the name of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and it's apparently not just a movie tie-in. While it is possible that this is a follow-up to the "War For Cybertron" follow-up game, rumor has it that this game will not be tied directly to the plot line for the upcoming Transformers film, Transformers: Age of Extinction.

UPDATE: Now made official! Have a peek at the trailer below!

Pharrell Williams interviews Spock

Pharrell Williams interviews Spock

As part of a creator series of interviews called "ARTST TLK", the multi-platform artist known as Pharrell Williams has brought aboard none other than Leonard Nimoy for a chat.

Star Wars VII actor auditions online and in-person internationally
