I'd be happy if they just made the original Mechassault available for the 360, like they did with MA2. That would make me a happy gamer.

I'd take a 360 controller over m/kbd combo anytime, but that just my opinion. I converted from k/m after playing Doom on OXBOX. Tried to go back, but the PC controls feel too "spread eagle" after spending time on the controller. Have my skills dipped? No way. I think it all just comes down to personal preference. Anyone who wants to say that one is better than the other is nuts. It really just depends on the individual and how they like to play.

Can't wait! I loved the original XBX version.

MA may have benefited from a bit more "down time" in between the fighting...not that I didn't enjoy the frenetic fighting. MW always seemed limited by the mechs slow movements. I felt way more connected to the game in MA. Didn't care for MA2. I will definetly get MW 4 on the DL, and I cannot wait for the carnage. My guess for a release time frame is Xmas of '10. From the looks of things, they already have a good headstart. And the story line is already somewhat written. Some good voice actors and some CGI work, a year, maybe a year and five months. I wonder when they will start letting folks buy new games through DL on XBL. They sell full games already, but not the new ones. That would to a huge time chunk away from the release. But I actually would rather buy the box with all the trimmings...I have to sniff the manual...

As far as the new game being "like MA", I fully understand that the game will certainly resemble MW simulators more than it will MA, but one can hope. As for what the creators have already come out and said about what features the game will or will not have, remember this: They do not have a publisher yet and even Weisman said it himself so many things truly are still up in the air.

Well, I don't know. I trust Wikipedia more than I trust you. And by their account, it is VERY MUCH a part of the Mechwarrior universe. Or is this simply your OPINION. If that's the case, then that's your problem. More people agree that MechAssault was a great game and that it is definetly a GIANT portion of the series. As a matter of fact, there are a huge group of gamers whose only exposure to the series is Mechassault. So let go of it pal, you are WRONG. Long live Mechassault.

Well, they changed MW's core elements for MA and it sold like hotcakes. So....maybe they should.

I would rather this game be a MechAssault clone than stain the world of video games with another simulator that plays like garbage. Maybe if they combined the two games somehow.... If they release a MW game as a sim on the consoles, they will ruin the MechAssault legacy.

Yeah...if they make it too much like Mech 2, it's toast. They NEED to include a helping of MechAssault's action. Console player's have ALWAYS rejected the sim style play. Something in between the two may work.
