Netflix announce Transformers: War for Cybertron trilogy

first_imgIf you’re a long-time Transformers fan you’ll instantly realise that although there’s another new visual style, the characters featured appear to be much more like the original Generation 1 and 2 characters from the 80s and 90s. The new trilogy also looks to have borrowed some ideas from the Michael Bay movies.Sadly we’re not getting the original voice talent such as Peter Cullen and Frank Welker as Optimus Prime and Megatron. Instead, the voice cast for the Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy includes:Jake Foushee (Optimus Prime)Jason Marnocha (Megatron)Linsay Rousseau (Elita-1)Joe Zieja (Bumblebee)Frank Todaro (Starscream)Rafael Goldstein (Ratchet)Keith Silverstein (Jetfire)Todd Haberkorn (Shockwave, Red Alert)Edward Bosco (Ultra Magnus, Soundwave)Bill Rogers (Wheeljack)Sophia Isabella (Arcee)Brook Chalmers (Impactor)Shawn Hawkins (Mirage)Kaiser Johnson (Ironhide)Miles Luna (Teletraan I, Cliffjumper)Mark Whitten (Sideswipe, Skywarp)EF Television will bring you more on the Transformers: War for Cybertron trilogy as it is announced. Credit: Netflix Credit: Netflix Credit: Netflix We’ve got some great news for Transformers fans as Netflix and Hasbro have partnered with Rooster Teeth for a new animated trilogy about the Autobot and Decepticon war. It will be called Transformers: War for Cybertron but is not expected to follow the same story as the video game of the same name.The first arc is called Siege which is coming this year and will feature six 22-minute episodes. It is expected to be followed shortly after by the second arc, Earthrise. The name of the third and final arc has yet to be announced.Watch the Transformers: War for Cybertron trilogy – Siege trailer below:Details are thin on the ground at the moment, but here’s the first official details from Netflix:It is the final hours of the devastating civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons. The war that has torn apart their home planet of Cybertron is at a tipping point. Two leaders, Optimus Prime and Megatron, both want to save their world and unify their people, but only on their own terms. In an attempt to end the conflict, Megatron is forced to consider using the Allspark, the source of all life and power on Cybertron, to “reformat” the Autobots, thus “unifying” Cybertron. Outnumbered, outgunned, and under SIEGE, the battle-weary Autobots orchestrate a desperate series of counterstrikes on a mission that, if everything somehow goes right, will end with an unthinkable choice: kill their planet in order to save it.View some Transformers: War for Cybertron images in our gallery: Credit: Netflix Credit: Netflixlast_img read more

(3) Ohio State @ (14) Oklahoma Preview Part 4: “Can Barrett Continue His Heisman Run?”

first_img Related TopicsJ.T. BarrettOhio State Buckeyes (3) Ohio State’s upcoming match against (14) Oklahoma has a long list of implications at stake.First and foremost are the playoff chances of both of these teams.If Ohio State wins, they are validated as a top three team and will have a relatively easy road ahead with the exceptions of Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Michigan. A Buckeye win over Oklahoma on the road would indicate that the team is ready for those challenges.If the Buckeyes fall to Oklahoma, the natural response of the college football world would be “If they have trouble with Oklahoma, how will they handle the elite teams, like Michigan?”On the flip side, an Oklahoma loss virtually ends their playoff hopes, whereas if the Sooners win, they become a legitimate contender in the playoff picture.If Oklahoma can get through this one with a 2-1 record, the general road ahead would mean the Sooners have to win out, but their playoff chances are alive if they run the table the rest of the way.This is about as big of a pendulum swing as one can find early in the college football season.Although this next example is further down the list of priorities, this game also has ramifications for the two starting quarterbacks, J.T. Barrett of Ohio State and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma.Barrett and Mayfield were both mentioned as potential Heisman candidates coming into 2016. Mayfield did not have a great game in the loss against (6) Houston in Week 1, but if he were to lead his team to the playoff, there’s a chance he’d be back in the conversation.Barrett, on the other hand, is firmly entrenched as a top candidate to win the award.He scored nine touchdowns in two games (six passing, three rushing). He’s the leader of a top three team that has a chance to run the table and reach the playoffs.If Barrett can add this victory to his resume, on the road, it only solidifies his spot in the Heisman race even further.He already has 498 passing yards in two games, and didn’t even need to play in the fourth quarter against Bowling Green.Barrett threw his first interception of the season on the opening drive against Bowling Green and has been nearly perfect ever since.Oklahoma’s secondary is as formidable as any the Buckeyes will face in 2016 and is led by two NFL Draft prospects, cornerback Jordan Thomas and  safety Ahmad Thomas.Safety Steven Parker is no slouch either, giving Oklahoma three returning starters in the secondary.Although the Sooners had trouble against Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. in Week 1 (most teams have the same problem), this will certainly be a few steps up for Ohio State compared to the first two cupcake opponents.Barrett has a deep arsenal of weapons to choose from in the receiver group.H-back Curtis Samuel has been deadly, with two receiving touchdowns and nearly 240 receiving yards on 14 catches.Dontre Wilson is another threat out of the backfield in the passing game and already has two receiving touchdowns.We still have yet to see Noah Brown make a big impact, but that seems to only be a matter of time.11 different Buckeyes have caught passes in only two games. Tight end Marcus Baugh is more than capable. K.J. Hill and Terry McLaurin have made big  plays already.There can’t be many teams that are harder to prepare for defensively than Ohio State.Much like our preview of Ohio State’s running back committee coming into this game, the Buckeyes have just about everything one could hope for as far all the elements and ingredients to a successful passing game.The offensive line is strong. The run game will open up the field for big passing plays.Oklahoma does not have an elite defense.Everything looks great on paper. Sure, Ohio State is “missing” weapons like Michael Thomas, Braxton Miller, and Jaylin Marshall, but that’s just a testament to how great the recruiting has been and how much talent is on this fresh crop.Look for Samuel, Wilson, and Brown to be some of the biggest impact players on Saturday night, but with this team, you never know who is going to step up and contribute.As with our breakdown of the running game against Oklahoma’s defense, this appears to be a heavy advantage of Ohio State coming into the game.If Barrett and his deep pool of receivers get the job done, the Buckeyes and Barrett will both be cemented as true contenders for the championship and Heisman trophy, respectively.Check back Saturday for part five of our preview series, when we give a general overview of the game, what to expect, key players to watch on both sides, and our prediction for the big game.

St. Vincent-St. Mary Rolls Past Central Catholic 72-48 in Division II Regional Final

first_img Related Topics CANTON, Ohio- For the second straight year, Saint Vincent-Saint Mary will be heading down to Columbus next weekend.Thanks to Jon Williams’ fifteen points and Buffalo-commit Jayvon Graves’ seventeen points, the Irish team claimed victory by defeating Central Catholic 72-48 in their Regional Final game in Canton, Ohio.After a slow start by both teams to begin with, things picked up just a little after the sides were tied at 10 in the first quarter. At halftime, the Irish led 19-16.To start the second half, Williams pushed the lead to double digits by hitting back to back threes. That opened the game up for the team, as they jumped out to a 15-3 run. From there, the Irish ran away.“I told my guys keep pushing.” Coach Dru Joyce said. “It was all about scoring the basket and that was the turning point there.”“We knew how this game was important for us.” Williams said. “This was the same school who beat me and my brother two years ago. I’ve talked about it in the locker room, so we made sure we came out here and play like we want it. We wanted to speed it up in the second half and that’s what we did because every possession counted for us.”Jon received a text yesterday from his brother Josh, who is currently playing for the University of Akron basketball team, that gave him motivation.“This is important”. Williams stated, referring to his brother’s text.Jayvon Graves was also a big part of the win, as he scored fifteen of his seventeen points in the fourth quarter. Graves also added eleven rebounds in the game.“We prepared well for this game.” Graves said. ” We knew Central was going to give it all but the second help helped us.” Mike Couteelast_img read more

Freeze surprises Finebaum, voices opinion on satellite camps

first_imgOXFORD — On Thursday, famed radio host Paul Finebaum got a call from a “Hugh from Oxford, MS.” Yes, it was that Hugh. But it took Finebaum a few moments to figure it out. “This sounds like a familiar voice if I’m listening closely,” Finebaum said after hearing the voice on the other end for a few seconds. “You’re too smart, Paul, this is coach Freeze,” said Freeze, who was calling from inside a bus on the 2015 Rebel Road Trip. “We’ve never had a call from a head football coach before,” Finebaum replied. From there, the two discussed a number of different Ole Miss-related topics – but spent the most time chatting about satellite camps. It’s been a hot topic lately, as some conferences – such as the Big Ten – allow schools to host and evaluate recruits away from their own campuses. For example, Michigan will hold camps in Alabama, Texas and Florida this summer. Southeastern Conference schools are not allowed to host such camps, and Freeze told Finebaum he believes that rule should be adopted nationwide. “I think we’re all in a unified front that we’re not in favor of them,” Freeze said. “I don’t think that’s something, a road we want to go down. We’ve done that for years here. It’s an area we have to talk about when we get to our spring meetings. We’d be in favor of keeping the SEC rule as the national rule, which is you keep your camps on your own campus.”last_img read more
