My advise to them, reboot the Kickstarter and start it again in September going into October (seems to be the time Kickstarters get the most money), drop all MP features and make them stretch goals, and give us a SP/Instant Skirmish base platform, make editor free to all, allow everyone to host their own servers, allow modding, and stop assuming everyone knows Heavy Gear's story and faction (or remembers that).

And lastly, ARENA combat is a big turn-off. If anything I want mech combat on map areas like in BF3 Armored Kill, just twice larger. ^^
But then how are they supposed to make tons of money after release by selling us F2P currency to buy new stuff for our Gears?

Amusingly I think the Heavy Gear franchise is one of the worst options for launching a free to play mech arena deathmatch game. People who enjoy Heavy Gear want a tactical campaign, not a bombastic arena. I could see people going in for a MechWarrior Solaris game, but Heavy Gear for me has always been as much about tactics as anything else.

But maybe the know this but they went F2P anyways because that will earn them more money and because it's much easier to make an arena game on a tiny budget than it is to make a huge single player campaign.

Yawn. Steam's taking baby steps onto Linux - in a decade I wonder if anyone's going to have to care about Windows at all when it comes to gaming.

I'm not donating because I don't like giving money to free to play games, generally, and I of course like everyone else would like a single player game much more, but I think you folks are being WAY too harsh on Stompy Bot. I think they probably want to make a single player game too, but that would cost too much and it wouldn't make enough money. This is why Mechwarrior 5 (remember that awesome trailer?) turned into Mechwarrior Online and this is probably why Hawken is a free to play mech deathmatch game rather than something with a single player component too.

So although I probably won't be pledging, it's not because I hate these idiots for not making what I want. I understand that it's tough to get enough money to make an expensive single player game these days - people only buy an SP game once (or they pirate it) and then you never get any more money, whereas with a free to play game you can release the beta before it's even done (hello MechWarrior Online) and start earning money right then and there. Much less risky.

I came here to get mad at everyone for yelling at a company that dared to do something other than just copy Call of Duty then I watched the trailer and... yeah it's ugly as hell. If you want to see minimalism done right in a competitive FPS, look at Warsow.

Oh come on, there's an easy way to figure this out. Just pretend to announce a new NOLF game and wait to see who sues you.

I've heard mixed things but I too am awaiting more opinions because this looks really neat. I love the graphics and the little bits of the world/story that I've seen so I hope the gameplay is enjoyable and not frustrating or broken.

edit: Verno beat me, nooo

True Sight: a building/wall/etc will block LOS. In most RTS games, units can see in a circle around them, even behind a building. In CoH 2 (and some other RTS games, like Men of War), if a unit is standing right next to another unit but there is a wall between them, they can't see each other.

ROF: yes, rate of fire. Verno probably meant high ROF.

APM: actions per minute, a measurement of how many commands you can issue to your units. High APM = you can micromanage your units really well, and in this case tell your mortar exactly where to shoot all the time manually so that you can lead targets and stuff.

vCOH: Vanilla CoH, aka CoH before the expansions ruined it.

This is why I read Blue's News! Games like this pop up all the time. This one looks pretty interesting - I hate spending money so I haven't bought into their crowdfunding preorder thing but I suspect my resolve is going to waver at some point.

This game owns. Everyone should buy it, or at least try it on sale. It's a very complicated game (much more complicated than Battlefield: IN SPACE! - BF games don't have much strategy other than "go around the side and capture the points behind the enemy") so if you find yourself getting confused, check out my comprehensive guide to help ease you in to the game.

Sega publishes the Total War games and they also published Universe at War, they are no stranger to RTS games.

This is going to be pretty awesome. Or I'm going to be pretty disappointed. The combination of the crazy art direction, bizarre story, and amazing punching action made Zeno Clash one of my favorite games and I hope the sequel is every bit as good/punchtastic.

Yeah Molyneux did a great job with Spore... probably because he didn't overpromise at all.

Because he didn't work on that game.

This game is free to play, right? So... hackers can just make a new account whenever they want... right?

This wouldn't be the Blue's News comment section if people didn't complain about literally everything.
