Im looking for a good mech game. Something like Armored core, you know something with plenty of customization for weapons, armor and plenty of different parts to choose from. Are there any good mech games for PC that meet this description?

Im looking for the exact same Thing! I loved armored core but it doesnt seem they have anything on the Computers anymore :(

Mech Warrior?
#4 Posted by Orcishman05 (210 posts) -
mech warrior has hardly any customization. You get to choose different mechs, but thats almost it.

mechwarrior 2 mercenaries, choose mechs and the weapons that go on them. mechcommander 2 lets you do that too but no piloting, just commanding.

:question:

In Mech Warrior 4, you can customize exactly what weapons your 'mech is outfitted with, how much ammo projectile weapons have, what weapons are fired for each of the six firing keys, what type of and how much armor you put on each 'mech, how powerful its engine is, what special equipment to give it, how many heatsinks it has, and what its color scheme is (I think I got everything).

The only thing you can't really customize is the model itself, I.E., it doesn't change in appearance when you change its weapons and such. Other than that, I'm not really sure what you mean (besides, take into account the vast number of 'mechs MW4 has, and even moreso when you include its expansion, Mercenaries, and the lack of model customization hardly seems like an issue). Granted, I haven't played any other 'mech games, so I can't really compare, but I find it hard to believe anyone would think MW has "hardly any customization."

Heh, weird, I didn't know MW2 had an expansion called Mercenaries, also.

I don't know why a mech game hasn't come out recently. Almost considered picking up a PS to get armored core again.

[QUOTE="nutcrackr"]mechwarrior 2 mercenaries, choose mechs and the weapons that go on them.JP_Russell

Heh, weird, I didn't know MW2 had an expansion called Mercenaries, also.

Its a stand alone expansion. If I remember correctly, it covers the 4th Succession War, the arrival of the Clans right up to the defense of Luthien.

God I love MW games. Been playing them since MW2 Mercs and they are awesome. My suggestion would be MW4/MW4: Mercs. If you want something a little more "real", go with MW 3. MW 3 has more detailed designs and thr recoil of projectile weapons feels "real" (put an AC/20 on your mech's right arm, and when you fire it, the torsto will tilt a little bit to the right). Also, if you are hit several times with projectile weapons, the impact can knock your mech down.

Exteel is a "Armored Core" MMO, its already out, hasn't got a review yet from gamespot, but It's out there. Search it on gamespot though, look at some screens. This is probly the best mech game out there right now.

I watched Exteel on youtube, but the robots looked too childish and it didn't appeal to me at all.

Why do you make an account to bump a 3 year old thread?

I'm surprised no one mentioned Front Mission Evolved, especially since we are looking for Armored core type games.

#23 Posted by rum211 (25 posts) -
that looks waay cooler. nice
#24 Posted by Geektron3000 (25 posts) -
Yes, Front Mission: Evolved is a very good game in this respect. However the multi-player died quiet quickly and although you can customise in the single-player campaign once you complete it you retain all the best equipment when you re-do on the next difficulty up making it incredibly easy and boring when you defeat the biggest bosses without using you 'EDGE'

If you like Mek, you might also like Hawken, its not out yet, and might only be for console, but still worth looking into as it looks awsome!

MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries is free. Get get.
#27 Posted by Falconoffury (1717 posts) -

Any ideas as to why Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries is free, but not Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance?

#28 Posted by Swiftstrike5 (6950 posts) -

Lol, this is the third time this thread has risen from the grave. Feels like a time capsule, seeing my posts from 2007.

Maybe I'll see this one in 2015 =)

Please don't bump old threads, there is no need to bring up titanfall when there is already a thread on it.

Licensing issues, MekTek went for the better one and it is chock full of custom content.
