Hawken's Chris Lalli: "It's a great time to be a mech fan right now"

RA "Yesterday we saw the reveal of Day 1 Studios' return to the mech genre with Reign of Thunder, a free-to-play multiplayer shooter. For the past year, however, the world has been in awe over the brief gameplay bits we've seen of indie developer Adhesive Games' Hawken, another free-to-play mech-based multiplayer shooter, whose beta begins at the end of the year. Until yesterday, Adhesive and Hawken had little competition in their way--although currently MechWarrior Online is accepting registration--so I was interested in hearing what the studio felt about Day 1's announcement."

Best mech game ever is ZOE.

Uhm... no.

ZOE may star a machine that looks like a mech, but it's basically an action game.

Mech games are like simulators for vehicles that don't exist. They focus on vehicle maintenance and variety alongside the combat, with the player generally feeling more like a pilot in control of the machine, and not the machine itself (unlike ZOE).

I love ZOE, but I wouldn't call it a mech game.

Mechwarrior Online


Reign of Thunder

Looks like my Mech game time will be full very soon. I gotta play all 3 of these.

and these games very well may get me to give my PC a little tune up. I typically dont like to play on my PC as I work from here too, but I love the Battletech/Mechwarrior universe and games that have that vibe.

Just wish we still had Square Enix making a decent Front Mission game.
