Created by High Moon Studios and inspired by the legendary official Transformers story (property of Hasbro), the video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, developed by Activision Publishing, gives gamers the chance to experience the darkest final hours of the civil war pitting the Autobots against the Decepticons – a conflict that will end with the robots’ exodus from their dying planet. Players will face even greater challenges in an adventure that unfolds in a post-apocalyptic world rife with warfare. The game is rated T for teen by ESRB and is available for Xbox 360®, PlayStation® 3 and PC.

After a two-year break, French band Superbus, headed by Jennifer Ayache, is back with its fifth studio album, Sunset. Recorded in Paris and Los Angeles, this new album was produced by Billy Bush, sound engineer for the band Garbage. In addition to the eclectic erudite-rock nods Superbus has been offering us since its beginnings, fans will find grunge guitar, honky-tonk piano, 80s keyboards, six-chord surf guitar, Bangles-inspired harmonies, vintage vocoder and even an explosive solo by Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora. The result is a highly varied pop-rock-packed album with mature, modest, sensitive lyrics. Sunset is available from Polydor Records.
