Day 1 Tease - New MechAssault?

The Day 1 Studios Website now sports a new trailer called "Storm Warning," teasing an upcoming project from Day 1 Studios. The clip shows a glimpse of a mech, and the accompanying text saying that in 2012 "Day 1 Studios Returns to its Roots," leading to rampant speculation that this may signal a return of the MechAssault franchise. There's no indication yet when we can expect more on this. Thanks Hump.

Bah, MechAssault was fun. As a cheap XBLA game (with limited-to-no single player)? I'd consider it. If they try to make a full release out of it, no. There's simply not enough to it to justify that purchase.

Do want a real mech game though.

Seriously why can't they make a Mechwarrior 4 type game for the consoles? Take Chrome Hounds and 1 part MechAssault and blammo, everyone is happy.

I had it, it was awesome. Unfortunately there will never be another Mech game like it on Consoles.

Um no, the beauty of Chrome Hounds was Building your own mechs and setting up your weapon loadouts and what buttons they were on, the also had very streamlined controls.

I would just like to acknowledge and support the contempt for the MechAssault franchise. That is all.

"Day 1 Studios, where returning to our roots means taking a shit on an already established IP and making all of it's fans hate us"

Fuck Mech Assault, and anything similar to it.

Real Mechwarrior games please.

What the fuck was that shit? What the fuck is with these mech devs not releasing real media of their games? In the words of Mr. Garrison they can just suck my balls.

They haven't even made an announcement yet. This is like complaining that an announcement of an upcoming trailer didn't include the trailer.

Um, bonehead...that was the announcement.

Eeek. I mean, okay, I'm definitely down for more giant robot games (especially anything Battletech-related), but MechAssault was definitely not the pinnacle of giant robot combat. More of a perversion.

An admittedly fun, amusing at times perversion that I played and got some kicks out of, but a perversion nonetheless. Unfortunately I guess this is the only thing that really sells big these days...

Which makes me extremely sad. I played Mech Assault for one evening and all it left was a disappointed feeling at the direction the franchise went. Homing PPCs. Ugh.
