As long as there are squishies on the battlefield, I'll probably go for it. Kesmai dangled that bait long enough that I have to admit it's one that totally hooks me.

The BT:3025 beta was how the game should be played. Stock mechs that force one to use skill first and foremost while capturing planets. I adored that game and it was one of the most heartbreaking moments I had in gaming when EA canceled it at the 11th hour.

Releasing in December??

they CANNOT be that dense. Its a niche title that will absolutely get buried during the holidays.

they must have a good reason but I can't think of a single one

to be honest, I thought the Unity demo looked fine. I'm more interested in capturing the feel of the original rather than see them spend too much time on graphics detail.

anyhoo, good to see them back on track.

What's wrong with Mechwarrior online?
That's a loaded question. I'll give you a quick synopsis of why people whine about MWO :
- They made promises they didn't keep like 3rd person viewing.
- There's no single player
- They made it F2P rather than $60 flat.
- I can't *own* a physical copy of the game.
- You have to grind out additional chassis rather than have all of them available when you start.
- Nitpicks about how weapons work and 'canon'.
- Nitpicks about everything else and 'canon'.
- And my absolute favorite : "I can't play the game the way I want to." IE, I suck and my favorite loadout is shit and I get steamrolled when I try to shoehorn it into a game. Like boating Small Lasers and charging across a wide open field screaming 'bushido!".

Basically old grognards (like me) are the biggest detriment to new Battletech games because they will piss and moan about EVERY goddamn thing.

In order of the above list:

1.) name me one game that didnt have its design doc changed for various reasons. Most reasons are pretty sound.
2.) Have you been living under a rock? Pirhana & S&T spent a quarter million making that cinematic to shop to publishers. They and fans loved it. unfortunately MS refused to allow a Playstation port (MS owns the IP). Everyone backed off. MWO was plan B.
3.) Right, so a niche IP that MIGHT sell 100k copies is a sound investment for a flat fee game? Go to business school bud.
4.) Its an online only game. A physical copy makes absolutely no sense.
5.)ie; the COD school of MP gaming. Like it or not, thats how the market is and its what people want. I dont like it either but given that or no game at all Ill take the game
6.) This has been a neverending debate since MW2. No one has ever agreed on it.
7.) Battletech fans are a pain in the fucking ass. (see 6)
9.) see 7

your last statement. *Bro hug*. Ive been in the effing "community" since MW2 too. In the end its still a lotta fun.

Im not really understanding how someone could compare the S&T demo trailer to what Pirhana has show recently. The S&T vid was essentially an opening cinematic style of work, the PR vids show off actual aspects of early alpha gameplay.

How about we just be happy that theres a company still willing to make a SP MW game at all.

Sad, but true. As soon as I saw the headline I knew his career and a good portion of his life is over. Whether he's guilty or innocent. Whether she lied or not. It doesn't matter. This will stick with him. He's done.

Yeah but didn't he have a lotta child porn on his PC?

I found Brink to actually be a pretty decent game. I didnt buy it at release because, frankly, no one was playing it.

Ill give it another go though. Free is.....well......free.

I think Valve's opinion on HL has been stated a few times, in as much if the technology allows them to bring about a new experience they would release the game. As I recall the "technology" in HL1 was access to environment audio (Creative Labs EAX, I believe it was?) and some video card features that didn't exist before, and HL2 was released on their new Source engine and include physics gameplay. HL3? Probably existed to a point with 3D - and was decided that wasn't the right path. I'm okay with an unfinished story, at this point it's been so long.

Agreed but it just sucks because THIS is the IP that made me a died-in-the-wool PC gamer. Thanks to Marc Laidlaw this IP had a story like none other. It was true new wave science fiction without cornball dialogue that slammed you over the head to get its point across.
