After Androgyne’s game post, it kind of got me thinking about the games I’ve been playing this year. Although nowhere near as numerous as his, I think I’ll try listing them down with some thoughts as well (in no particular order).

I’ve had this guy sitting on my desk for a while now. Actually I got him out after the Swoop review because they are, well, body-buddies. However as I’ve spent some quality time with him, playing, fiddling, road trips etc. I’ve come to the conclusion that Cutthroat is more.
My link to Cutthroat is erm, not strong. As a kid, the Terrorcons were the closest I ever got to completing a gestalt team. Well, I had Blot and Rippersnapper, both of which I’ve always thought were awesome. At the time that the Power of the Primes line would include the Terrorcons, I was super happy! Also, I was extremely excited that they were still called the Terrorcons. I thought Hasbro would run away from that term after, well the way that the word terrorist and war on terror etc etc is used by the media… Especially considering how Rippersnappers actual function in G1 was a “Terrorist.” But that's for the eventual Rippersnapper review.
Enough about other stuff, let’s look at Cutthroat right NOW!
