Mechwarrior 4 was a great game, not quite as great at mechwarrior 3 but still awesome.

I can get mechs anywhere, I want Cyberpunk goodness, and hacking, and jacking into the net (I hope that does not sound too bad) and elves, and orcs, and stimpacks, and cyberdecks. I want cybernetic implants. I want to bring the megacorps down.

I want my next-gen Shadowrun RPG!!!

Great game , even if very difficult. At least from what I remember. SNES version had a good story and solid gameplay mechanics. Heard the Genesis version was better but never played it.

Nice. I never did get a chance to play the expansions.

They are most likely doing this to generate interest prior to them releasing their newest version (if rumor is true). MekTek single handedly kept the community going when MS canceled support for it. Sucked, but at least MS allowed the MekTek community to use the game code and create new expansion/mods for Mechwarrior 4. If you get the chance make sure to download their community expansions...tons more mechs and weapons.

On a side note...is Tinker's supposed new version in anyway related to the previously mentioned Mod that was in the development which would run on the Crysis engine?

Not at all. The mod is totally seperate.
