This is starting to look like an interesting year for fans of mech games. Hawken and Mechwarrior Online are both taking a very different approach to the genre with their shift to an MMO format and, with the way MMOs have developed in recent years that could be a very good thing; given the team-based nature of mech games, it makes perfect sense. Armored Core V made a similar choice, but it’s one that I’m a much bigger fan of.
You begin as a new recruit to the City Police. You’re a talent that Father, the omnipresent Orwellian voice of the government, is interested in having around. There’s a resistance brewing and you’re able to strike it down fairly easily at first though it’s not long before you join the resistance yourself. Things become increasingly more nonsensical from there.
