Mechwarrior was awesome back in the day, except for the arena one.

mechwarrior or....
mechassault? Which do you prefer?

I like the pick up and play simplicity of mechassault. Its still part of the mechwarrior universe and surprising MS never made a 360 version.

Come to think of it.......why has there not been a new crimson skies? That would be a great multiplayer game to have.

Crimson Skies was very good too, I'd like to see a new one.

Best series I have ever played. Will be on my buy list without a doubt!

Oh wow, I'd likely buy a flightstick, throttle, and pedals if the developers do Mechwarrior properly!

Its going multiplat. This series its doomed to be a console port
JonahFalcon  +   1373d ago
It's being lead developed on the PC. The reason there is a 360 version is that it's an easy DirectX port.

I was a fan of mech warrior back in the 486 days. Wish I can find a copy of the old game.
I just wonder how they're gonna reboot the series.

Hell Yes!

I loved the trailer that appeared a few years ago. I thought it had gone into limbo.

Ya, they got into huge trouble with that trailer because it depicted a WHM-6R Warhammer (the player's mech). The design concept was owned by the company who owns Robotech. Many years ago there was a lawsuit between the makers of Robotech and BattleTech over several design artworks that made their way into both RPG booklets. The makers of Robotech won the lawsuit and made it so several of BattleTech's IMHO best design likenesses were barred from being depicted in any further print or video game.

I was really amazed at watching the video depicting the Warhammer roll PADding, (breaking line of sight while it's PPC's recharged). I was like 'haha! I used to do that!' The Warhammer ran hot, and had weak leg armour. And you didn't want to run into an Atlas at 60 meters hahah.

It's been so long since the pilot teaser trailer, thank the heavens this didn't become vaporware.
