Erm, R6: Vegas isn't remotely "normal" by R6 standards.

Eh, I defer back to Tom Clancy's transition to writing pulpy fiction. His last two Ryanverse novels were not "normal" by his previous standards either. And though I doubt he's really signing off on everything that has his name attached to it, nonetheless - it still has his name attached to it.

it died of Acute Consolidis just like the Rainbow 6 series.

No, that was a case of Microsoft wrecking the franchise after acquiring FASA. Besides, there hasn't been a decent Mech game on the PC in literally years.

Well it seems Chrome Hounds has replaced Mechwarrior sadly not on the PC.

As for R6 Vegas, I think it did a great job returning the series back to some sort of 'normal' after Lockdown.

My thoughts exactly! Good old Mechwarrior, it died of Acute Consolidis just like the Rainbow 6 series.

The title reminds me of Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries. That was a fun game...

Ok but so far there has been 3 or 4 RTS games ever on Consoles?

Command and Conquer
The Gamecube game Pikmin
Lord of the Rings 2

All of which got excellent ratings even for being on a console.

And if I remember reading previews/reviews of Mercs 1, it wasn't a RTS game, but a 3rd person action shooter, kinda like GTA meets Guerilla Warfare.

yawn. You may think that consoles are the future. fine, go for it, enjoy your analogue stick fun.
I'm just not in favour of shoddy ports. You fancy trying to play a PC-designed RTS that get a 10 minute port to the console?

Of course, wanting to play games on a platform that are primarily designed for that platform clearly makes me nostalgic.
Jesus...

I hope they allow for scripting etc. This could produce some fine mods.

to be honest, these days, when I see that a game has been targeted at consoles + PC, I just ignore it. Too many shoddy PC ports, with substandard graphics, appalling control schemes and sod-all modability means they just aren't worth my time. Increasingly I tend towards obscure, indie developed PC only games.

Yeah. And fuck those bastards that try to force MOVING PICTURES on us. Those sonsabitches will have us playing in 3D next.

Merc 1 was fun but it has some rough edges too. not sure how they are gonna port this game on so many different platforms without it looking/playing bad on some of them.

Of getting the first one for the PC as well?

BTW anyone else cringe when they see Playstation 2 and 3 described as a 'computer entertainment system'?
