On one hand I'm super jazzed for a new Mechwarrior game. On the other... I really wish they just redid the graphics engine for Mechwarrior2: Mercenaries. To me it was by far the best of the bunch. Full control over your mech company. Full control on what missions you took. Endless replayability with random missions, even once the 'real' campaign was done. No vindication story for some snot nosed noble who preferred slumming it up (are we playing a Hilton?). Just wicked awesome giant robot destruction.
