Warpath: Jurassic Park is a fighting video game released on the PlayStation console in 1999. It is a spin-off of the films Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, in turn adapted from novels written by Michael Crichton, it was developed by Black Ops Entertainment and co-published by Electronic Arts and DreamWorks Interactive. Warpath is a fighting game; the player can choose a dinosaur to fight with against other dinosaurs. The player starts with eight dinosaurs, including T-Rex, Ankylosaurus and Styracosaurus. Six additional dinosaurs can be unlocked in Arcade mode; each dinosaur has its own array of fighting techniques and style. Various arenas based on scenes from the first two films are shown in the game, such as the T. rex enclosure from Jurassic Park and the S. S. Venture deck from The Lost World: Jurassic Park; some arenas feature destructible objects such as boxes, which will hurt the dinosaurs when they break them. Optionally, various edible creatures will scurry across the arena replenishing lost health when eaten or killed by one of the fighters.
The game features a variety of modes similar to other fighting games. The main mode is Arcade. In this mode the player must face each dinosaur in the game through 8 fights; this mode has a time round limit, though it can be changed in the options menu. Versus mode has the player going up against a second player; the players can choose the arena. If the second player chooses the same dinosaur the skin changes to an alternative. Practice mode allows the player to train against any dinosaur; the player can change the stance of the opponent to crouched or on ground. The opponent can attack, but the player cannot die as it is just a simulation. Survival mode has the player going up against an endless array of dinosaurs in the same manner as a survival mode. A small amount of health is rewarded to the player for each dinosaur defeated; the object of this mode is to defeat as many dinosaurs as possible until the player's health meter is depleted. Choice mode is the same Versus mode. In Team battle mode, the player selects a team of up to four dinosaurs and battles against an opposing team of dinosaurs until all dinosaurs on either team are eliminated.
Museum allows the player to read or hear information on each one. The player can view the dinosaur's family, time of existence, do other things like change its skin or hear pronunciation. Warpath was met with mixed reception upon release, as GameRankings gave it a score of 57.36%. The game was compared unfavorably to Primal Rage by GameSpot and IGN. AllGame praised the game's dinosaur animations, most of its interactive level designs for their resemblance to locations that were featured in the films, but criticized other levels for their "bland building textures and rushed backgrounds." AllGame found the gameplay to be "downright sluggish" and considered the music to be "too low and emotionless," and opined that cutscenes for each dinosaur "would've been a nice extra for the game's overall feel and replay value." GameSpot praised the dinosaurs, but criticized the levels for glitching: "Surfaces buckle and distortion abounds as the PlayStation struggles to keep all this geometry under control."Game Informer wrote, "Graphically, it's not a bad game.
The concept leaves much to be desired," noting that the gameplay "gets old rather when you realize that the AI of the game is about the size of a peanut, you can finish it with two moves." GamePro praised the graphics and sound, but criticized the game's "complex button patterns," writing, "By the time you master the combos, you'll be in the mood to play something else."IGN criticized the game's dinosaurs for their lack of size disparity: "The T-Rex is a dwarf, while raptors have become mega-raptors of the same size as the beast who bit regular raptors in half in the film." IGN criticized the game's AI, bad collision detection, noted that each dinosaur played to one another. However, IGN praised levels. Warpath: Jurassic Park at MobyGames

Transformers is a Japanese–American media franchise, produced by Japanese toy company Takara Tomy and American toy company Hasbro. A line of transforming mecha toys rebranded from Takara's Diaclone and Microman toylines, the franchise began in 1984 with the Transformers toy line, centers on factions of self-configuring modular extraterrestrial robotic lifeforms in an endless civil war for dominance or eventual peace. In its history, the Transformers robot superhero franchise has expanded to encompass comic books, video games and films; the term "Generation 1" covers both the animated television series The Transformers and the comic book series of the same name, which are further divided into Japanese and British spin-offs, respectively. Sequels followed, such as the Generation 2 comic book and Beast Wars TV series, which became its own mini-universe. Generation 1 characters underwent two reboots with Dreamwave in 2001 and IDW Publishing in 2005 as a remastered series, with a third starting in 2019.
There have been other incarnations of the story based on different toy lines during and after the 20th century. The first was the Robots in Disguise series, followed by three shows that constitute a single universe called the "Unicron Trilogy". A live-action film series started in 2007, again distinct from previous incarnations, while the Transformers: Animated series merged concepts from the G1 continuity, the 2007 live-action film and the "Unicron Trilogy". For most of the 2010s, in an attempt to mitigate the wave of reboots, the Aligned continuity was established. In 2018, Transformers: Cyberverse debuted, once again, distinct from the previous incarnations. Although a separate and competing franchise started in 1983, Tonka's Gobots became the intellectual property of Hasbro after their buyout of Tonka in 1991. Subsequently, the universe depicted in the animated series Challenge of the GoBots and follow-up film GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords was retroactively established as an alternate universe within the Transformers robot superhero franchise.
Generation One is a retroactive term for the Transformers characters that appeared between 1984 and 1993. The Transformers began with the 1980s Japanese toy lines Diaclone; the former utilized varying humanoid-type figures while the latter presented robots able to transform into everyday vehicles, electronic items or weapons. Hasbro, fresh from the success of the G. I. Joe: A Real American Hero toyline, which used the Microman technology to great success, bought the Diaclone toys, partnered with Takara. Jim Shooter and Dennis O'Neil were hired by Hasbro to create the backstory. Afterwards, Bob Budiansky created most of the Transformers characters, giving names and personalities to many unnamed Diaclone figures; the primary concept of Generation One is that the heroic Optimus Prime, the villainous Megatron, their finest soldiers crash land on pre-historic Earth in the Ark and the Nemesis before awakening in 1985, Cybertron hurtling through the Neutral zone as an effect of the war. The Marvel comic was part of the main Marvel Universe, with appearances from Spider-Man and Nick Fury, plus some cameos, as well as a visit to the Savage Land.
The Transformers TV series began around the same time. Produced by Sunbow Productions and Marvel Productions Hasbro Productions, from the start it contradicted Budiansky's backstories; the TV series shows the Autobots looking for new energy sources, crash landing as the Decepticons attack. Marvel interpreted the Autobots as destroying a rogue asteroid approaching Cybertron. Shockwave is loyal to Megatron in the TV series, keeping Cybertron in a stalemate during his absence, but in the comic book he attempts to take command of the Decepticons; the TV series would differ wildly from the origins Budiansky had created for the Dinobots, the Decepticon turned Autobot Jetfire, the Constructicons, Omega Supreme. The Marvel comic establishes early on that Prime wields the Creation Matrix, which gives life to machines. In the second season, the two-part episode The Key to Vector Sigma introduced the ancient Vector Sigma computer, which served the same original purpose as the Creation Matrix, its guardian Alpha Trion.
In 1986, the cartoon became the film The Transformers: The Movie, set in the year 2005. It introduced the Matrix as the "Autobot Matrix of Leadership", as a fatally wounded Prime gives it to Ultra Magnus. Unicron, a transformer who devours planets, fears its power and recreates a damaged Megatron as Galvatron, as well as Bombshell or Skywarp becoming Cyclonus, Thundercracker becoming Scourge and two other Insecticons becoming Scourge's huntsmen, the Sweeps. Rodimus Prime takes out the Matrix and destroys Unicron. In the United Kingdom, the weekly comic book interspliced original material to keep up with U. S. reprints, The Movie provided much new material. Writer Simon Furman proceeded to expand the continuity with movie spin-offs involving the time travelling Galvatron; the Movie featured guest voices from Leonard Nimoy as Galvatron, Scatman Crothers as Jazz, Casey Kasem as Cliffjumper, Orson Welles as Unicron and Eric Idle as the leader of the Junkions. The Transformers theme tune for the film was performed by Lion with "Weird Al" Yankovic adding a song to the soundtrack.
The third season followed up The Movie, with the revelation of the Quintessons having use

The Great Trail was a network of footpaths created by Algonquian and Iroquoian-speaking indigenous peoples prior to the arrival of European colonists in North America. It connected the areas of New England and eastern Canada, the mid-Atlantic regions to each other and to the Great Lakes region. Many major highways in the Northeastern United States were constructed to follow the routes established thousands of years ago by Native Americans moving along these trails. Although some sections of the trail have been called "warpaths", such as the so-called "Great Indian Warpath" through Chillicothe, the primary purposes for these roads was peaceful trade and gathering of natural resources along their routes; some sources describe the Great Trail as beginning at another. However, as there was a gradation between local trails used by few people and more major routes used by many, identifying a point at which the Great Trail begins or ends is an arbitrary matter; the Great Trail system connected with the Overland Trail, which led west, as well as other trails to other parts of the continent.
One part of the Great Trail system stretched from Passamaquoddy territory in northernmost New England through the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and down to the Shawmut Peninsula in Massachusetts. From there it connected to the region of the Wampanoag of Cape Cod, over to the territory of the Nipmuck and other tribes around Lake Chaubunagungamaug before connecting to areas of present-day Connecticut and points farther south. Another part of the Great Trail system in New England was followed by Massachusetts Route 2; the section now known as the Mohawk Trail leads from the Connecticut River valley through the Berkshires and Mohawk Trail State Forest into the area of present-day Albany, New York, the state capital. From here, the Great Trail system connected all parts of the territories where the Five Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy lived. In northern New Jersey, the portion of the Great Trail much-used by the Lenape included choice places to cross the Passaic River and to pass through the valleys among the Watchung Mountains, notably at Hobart Gap.
As the Dutch colonists advanced beyond the proximity of the Hudson River, the new settlers found these paths crucial to their movement. New Jersey Route 24 follows a branch of the trail in this area. A more southern part of the Great Trail system went from Delaware across Pennsylvania to Oldtown, to the Ohio River below present-day Pittsburgh, it crossed Columbiana County to Bolivar and Sandusky, continued west. The part of the Great Trail used by Colonial American troops during Pontiac's Rebellion has been improved as U. S. Route 23; as with the Native Americans' burning underbrush to clear land for cultivating crops and creating deer fields, the Great Trail shows that the indigenous inhabitants traveled on the land, altering it to serve their needs. These parts of North America were not an "untouched wilderness," as described by the early colonists. Ayres, The Great Trail of New England. Boston, MA: Meader Publishing Co
