News Comments > MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Delayed
1. Re: MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Delayed Jun 19, 2018, 11:00 Hump
 
I kind of expected this since they were a no-show at E3.

Also, I wonder if the delay is caused by MS okaying an Xboxone version....

10 years ago I would have been ecstatic over this game. Just now I didnt even bother viewing the entire video.

I used to love shooters. Now it seems thats all devs seem to be able to think up.

I used to love gaming.

He was a polarizing figure but he certainly contributed to gaming culture. He didnt deserve to go out this way.

I only care about two possible outcomes for this IP:

1.) a 2142 remake or sequel

2.) a remake of the original 1942 with the same level of modification that brought us "Desert Combat"

I loved the alpha demo and I'll absolutely be buying this. That other piece of shit pretender to the throne can go away. This feels like the real deal.

I tip my hat to these guys.

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.
