executioneer Jul 18th, 2009 11:03 PM

of course it'll probably be like 2010 by the time it actually comes out but STILL

Tadao Jul 18th, 2009 11:04 PM

WHAT? I loved Mechwarrior but it sucked when someone else bought the rights, who was it, Microsoft?

executioneer Jul 18th, 2009 11:37 PM

microsoft let the guy who founded FASA get the rights back!

I haven't played MW since I was about 12 years old, so this thread has inspired me to get Mech Commannder 2, Mech Warrior 3, and Mech Warrior 4 Mercenaries.

What's your thoughts on these games?

Fathom Zero Jul 19th, 2009 07:31 PM

I think 3 is completely free. The people who own the rights made it so in order to promote the new game.

executioneer Jul 19th, 2009 07:37 PM

i've never played the mech commander series, that's an RTS right :( s*ck at rtses. i like 3's control scheme / storyline / game mechanics a little better than 4's but they are both good in my eyes

Tadao Jul 19th, 2009 08:56 PM

I tried the Mech Commanders and yeah they are RTSes. I didn't like them too much but they got great reviews.

MattJack Jul 21st, 2009 05:34 PM

Mech Warrior 4 isn't fun at all cause I don't have a joystick :(

executioneer Jul 21st, 2009 07:47 PM

i played it just fine w/o one :/

Shyandquietguy Jul 21st, 2009 09:42 PM

Oh fuck yes. I absolutely was addicted to Mechwarrior 2. This and Diablo 3 are finally giving me a reason to bump my computer.

kahljorn Jul 24th, 2009 06:45 AM

MW2 Mercenaries was one of my favorite games :O

MrSmiley381 Jul 26th, 2009 10:36 AM

I just started playing Battletech, the original tabletop version of the Mechwarrior games, and then they announced a series reboot and that MW4 would be free.

I picked the best time to get back into this stuff.

LordSappington Jul 27th, 2009 05:57 PM

Man, I remember back in the days of Mechwarrior 2; my friend and I were always the Rifleman.
I cannot WAIT for this.

executioneer Oct 11th, 2011 01:09 PM

ok so it looked for a while like this was canned due to legal problems, but recently Piranha Games has been running a Twitter @InnerSphereNews and posting fragments of a teaser image that has the word "LAUNCH" in the lower portion of it, which makes me assume they'll be posting a release date for it soon :eek

Fathom Zero Oct 11th, 2011 04:14 PM

Yeah, there were screenshots and stuff that got splooged onto video game blogs last week.

executioneer Oct 11th, 2011 04:46 PM

ooh do you have any links i could peruse

10,000 Volt Ghost Oct 11th, 2011 05:40 PM

Is there a better term for a mechwarrior reboot? like reignition or a re turn on robo term?

Fathom Zero Oct 11th, 2011 05:49 PM

I take it back. It wasn't a screenshot - it was a trailer.

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011...ails-approach/

An old trailer, probably above.

See what I did there? Anyway, there are details, at any rate. So have fun with that while I get excited for Hawken.

executioneer Oct 11th, 2011 07:34 PM

yeah i think i linked that video in the fourth post in the thread :p

Fathom Zero Oct 12th, 2011 01:17 AM

Imma be honest - I've not thought of Mechwarrior in forever, which is apparently the more-than-two years since this thread.

I've gotten super excited for Hawken, which I know I'm gonna dig far more than Mechwarrior.


executioneer Oct 12th, 2011 01:35 AM

is hawken gonna have a single-player campaign

because being multiplayer only is kind of a major negative point for me

Fathom Zero Oct 12th, 2011 01:37 AM

That would be the sticking point. I'd assume it'd have a single player campaign in the same way that Unreal Tournament would. Bots. :\

At any rate, Hawken shouldn't cost sixty bucks when it comes out, either. I love me some indie games. YOU SHOULD GET BOTH AND PLAY HAWKEN ONLY WITH ME, WILLIE.

executioneer Oct 12th, 2011 01:40 AM

OKAY MAYBE

executioneer Oct 12th, 2011 01:53 AM

also: if hawken had individual limb dmg instead of just get hit until you explode it would also earn it some points

Fathom Zero Oct 12th, 2011 02:03 AM

I can't say that it does or doesn't, but I know it's got swappable parts, at least.

LordSappington Oct 13th, 2011 08:45 PM

I used to have some MechWarrior Mercenary game, and for some reason I figured that if I took a Mech, and gave it nothing but dozens of machine guns it would just run circles around enemies whittling them down. As it turned out, it just wasted a perfectly good mech.

executioneer Oct 13th, 2011 09:40 PM

that actually works pretty well in small, maneuverable mechs like the firefly, or at least if you've got enough ammo to power the super machine gun pile it does. group fire + sixteen machine guns is devastating at close range

executioneer Oct 20th, 2013 01:03 AM

are any of you n-word f-words playing this

yall wanna team up

executioneer Oct 20th, 2013 09:20 PM
