@ people complaining about not using "All systems nominal" Calm down. Its obviously deliberate as they are putting emphasis that its MechWarrior "Online" I'm just stoked that there is even going to be another MW title with all the lawsuits going on over who owns what.
Air drop mechs.... that reminds me of an episode from the show way back when. Oh well, let's hope this game has what it takes to give Mechwarrior justice!
mechwarrior is back. hate that its only online. can't u people think of a superb story to weave into this epic looking game?
@Gelugon_baat LOL someone who knows what smeg means :D I grew up watching Red Dwarf sorry. Now I understand what your getting at.Honestly if they can give the fun online experience i had in Mechwarrior 3, then im golden. Mechwarrior's online has always been competitive in nature.Teams going at it and destroying one another. Tactics were actually used funny enough. I was always happily able to be a support role. From the looks of it ill get what i want.Plus i like the way they are doing "clans". If this game hits the mark then ill get a hell of a lot of life out of it.And i must say, that doesn't happen with most games these days. Though in spirit of the old games, i hope we have missions and events along the game's timeline.A little co-op wouldn't hurt. And like in Mechwarrior:Legends(the Crysis mod) i would like to see other war machines playing good roles. Well only time will tell what else they decide to add.Im always scouring for new info.
@Gelugon_baat Well its also a matter of how many mech sims/mecha games i have played to date. Sadly no one seems to get it right. I mean armored core isn't bad but still lacks the luster it's first games have which honestly the series might as well ended at Last Raven. Then of course you have all the others. Im happy trying new games but they just don't measure up.Won't stop me from renting or purchasing new titles though.
@Gelugon_baat Not die hard, just nobody else has really gotten the genre down right in my opinion. So i kinda stick with who actually does it right. Same thoughts on monster hunter, as soon as someone does it better ill abandon Capcom for good. Asking you to read up is simply asking you to obtain the info to make a better assumption or have a better idea of what they are doing. However im quite confident. And even if it isn't exactly the same, its still better than what anyone else offers in the genre.
@Gelugon_baat I have owned nearly every Mechwarrior game in the franchise...and enjoyed MechAssualt. The difference in style is that one is a sim and the other is a arcade style. If you have been paying attention to the blogs or any of the info on the site, or any of the podcasts, you would know this is set as a sim like the mechwarrior games. Be as skeptical as you like.From what has been given as information so far, it will be much like the old games.Either way i will enjoy it as much as any other entry in the series (cept 4). Anyway you should go do some reading.Seems you need to read up.
It'll be good if they have lots of co-op missions. :) I hate MMOs that are solely focused on PvP, realm vs realm, whatever. It gets old fast. Kill, get killed, respawn, kill, get killed, repsawn... it never ends. At least with actual missions you get a story and the gameplay changes.
@Gelugon_baat And what the smeg is your point? Just remember mechwarrior has been around for a very long time.And this will play like the old mechwarrior.
Looks entirely too badass. I cannot wait for this game. Should have said nominal but they have time to fix that... still.. Mech Warrior... Cryengine 3... chills... I missed this franchise so much.
i've waited my whole damn life for a mechwarrior mmo. better not disapoint. looks like it wont. heat sink override!
I was getting all nostalgic while the check list voice was going until she said "all systems online" It's supposed to be all systems nominal! Bah. It may be because the game name but still.
After legal battles and endless delays, fans have been waiting for this one for 10 years. This could be a real upset in the PC gaming market. My anticipation knows no bounds.
This is where it all started....... http://mwomercs.com/forums/topic/13-dev-blog-0-reboot/ The credit for THIS game getting this far should go to Russ Bullock, Bryan Ekman and the other 63 at Piranha Games Inc. I am extremely excited that it will be using CryENGINE 3 and that it supports DX 11. I think they are going to do this one justice. Looking forward to the future Mechwarrior titles with Piranha Games Inc.
I'll take this metal riff over dub step any day. A Mechwarrior trailer done properly...minus the explosions of combat.
@majin-boo I hear ya, i got chills too when the computer read the status. Oh MechWarrior how i love you
Hmm... think Hawken will be better. BUT, as a BattleTech fan, I am still looking forward to this game.
