Oh, and before anyone reminds me that the game takes place in Montana just understand that Rednecks don't only live in the South.

Hell, anyone that has even driven through Montana knows that.

I have but only Eastern Montana, native Montanans in the eastern portion don't have southern accents, its more of a west-coast accent when I was there. The most northern edges also differ a bit with Canadian accents mixed in.

Anyone who has played Far Cry before and expected any meaningful social commentary is a fool. FC4 has its moments (trying to pick from 2 extremes, each arguably worse than who you're replacing) but it never went beyond big, dumb stereotypes - and it was better for it. I don't mind social commentary in games, but Far Cry isn't the place for the nuance this would need.

Haha, pretty true. Every Far Cry game I have ever played is over the top crazy. From crazy over the top cults and gameplay to michael bay non-linear explosions.

I've never actually played any of them. I would love to see a Singleplayer WW2 game, any Nation - doesn't matter, with the realism of Red Orchestra/RS/etc. with a huge dynamic map like WW2 Online.

It is what it is I guess. I mean it looks pretty fun and the idea of it is cool, but it seems they need fix spawn camping and simply add stuff. This seems like a game I may try much later, perhaps a year, to see how it progressed, but by then I would hope there are still players.

I'll agree it was a bad move to try to get countries right on Russia's border into NATO on the one hand. Ukraine's imminent joining probably caused Russia to take Crimea before he would have to deal with the full weight of NATO.

On the other hand, the Russian government are thugs, killing and jailing journalists, oppo leaders, and anyone else that gets in their way.

About Crimea, worth a read: What America Should Know about “Annexed Crimea”: “We the People of Crimea…” - Historical Perspective on Crimea by Oriental Review - Arina Tsukanova

Perhaps there are Russian politik that are thugs - not our problem though, that's their own problem to figure out just like we have ours.

Sabboth, one possible problem, with what you are saying is how do you know with complete certainty. I somewhat agree with what some one like Simon is saying and I am not even a Trump supporter. Not all leftists like me agree with that Russia narrative assessment.

Also not caring that the U.S. has interfered in some fashion in other countries makes that seem like hypocrisy. Do as I say, not as I do. A definitive stance on election interference should be a two-way street.

If you want to pin something on Trump, then see his list of war crimes.

Emperor Orange, AKA Clueless Caesar, AKA Orange Caligula I wouldn't say is in panic mode. He's more of a fool than anything, he runs the Presidency like he does a business or a Reality Show.

Economic sanctions work or they wouldn't bother with them. What's going on with NK and Iran right now is a direct result of economic sanctions. In order to work however you need everyone on board. It's why it doesn't work with Cuba because the US is the only one who sanctions them.

Are you an ignoramus Cutter, a Neo-Conservative, or do you not know the history of U.S. inflicting economic terrorism on other nations? Did the sanctions 'work' on Iraq back in the day that starved and killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children? Define "working as intended" please. Your viewpoints are often so drastic it's hard to discern what comes out of your head - one minute you 'seem' like you are against Imperialism, the next you're all for it. North Korea and Iran have never invaded the United States and do not intend to, neither does Cuba.

Let's repeat: Sanctions don't work. They are counterproductive. They hurt unintended people. They are illegal unless imposed by all Security Council Members. What Trump and his Ilk are doing is Illegal.

Iran Sanctions Don’t Work — Counterproductive and Hurt Ordinary Iranians

I'm sure people will applaud an idiot like Trump if he illegally invades a country too, which is the kind of distraction someone like him needs. Enough is Enough. What the U.S. NeoCon Policy does against countries even like Cuba is the very definition of Isolationism.

MW5 Pitch video from Smith&Tinker.

For example, it's 2018 with VR headsets and we still can't have a MechWarrior game with 360 viewing in a NeuroHelmet and stuck looking out a single cockpit window. At least the previous games had rear and side cameras programmed in freakin' 1995.

This is my current major beef with MWO, why no VR?

As for the video, I remember that but it looks so clunky and non-fluid. The idea of big buildings to hide around is not exactly innovative as they have to have a way of piloting well and having a fluid movement system. Also, they need melee but it's very hard to put into a game like this.

I also laugh because in the year 3015 optics are worse than 2018.

I believe people found ways to use Oculus Rift with MWO, but there is no point to it in most Mechs like an Atlas with no side windows and there are no external cameras to look at. But yeah, a new MW game would seem like a prime candidate for full VR functionality and the fisheye view. Mobile Suit Gundam, the anime, has a similar concept where all the viewing windows are actually more like monitors that the pilot looks at.

BattleTech (the canon setting): "Most 'Mech cockpits are completely enclosed, with the pilot observing the outside world through through their viewscreens rather than vulnerable openings. Some 'Mechs though, particularly older models, do have viewports protected by transparent material to allow an unobstructed view, much like an aircraft's canopy." (so even though some Mechs have bubble canopies, the pilots still can utilize a neurohelmet which also can have viewscreens with a 360 degree compressed into a 160 degree fish eye like view)

The buildings thing you mentioned though, not sure that's 'innovation' as so much as atmosphere and scaling Mechs to those buildings that just seems to look more real in a City setting?

Ah it's sanction season again, economic terrorism by another name. And also, they don't work. What strange times we live in where "trolls" and "spies" are 'sanctioned.'

When I read "extensive modding" I was like Thinking2 and then realized being that this is PGI this could be a sign of "please fix our game for $60" which I am predicting is going to be the case - Early Access would be a best guess. There's no way this is ready for 2018.

Frankly this looks far less innovative than the MW5 concept from many years ago now. Nothing has really excited me at all from any of this 'Neu-MW5' - I don't know what it is, and its not just that PGI is making this, but it just looks to lack a lot from the more interesting games back in the day MW2, MW3, and MW4. Where is the radar if any? Why does the gameplay have to be so similar to MWO? Why is PGI obsessed with jumpjets that only go up and down like a pogostick instead of in all directions like in BattleTech? It looks so pedantic, bland, lacking in 'atmosphere', and over-simplified like they are afraid of taking risks. Are there cutscenes and voice-acting even? Here's the original MW5 Pitch video from Smith&Tinker.

For example, it's 2018 with VR headsets and we still can't have a MechWarrior game with 360 viewing in a NeuroHelmet and stuck looking out a single cockpit window. At least the previous games had rear and side cameras programmed in freakin' 1995.

I used to play tabletop Battletech back in the day. Can't wait for this.

It plays like tabletop, sort of, but a lot of the advanced rules are not in use. You can't go prone with a Mech, dump ammunition, grab objects, no rear mounted weapons, etc. Of course, that's not to say they won't add those things in the future or someone might mod it in, who knows. I requested if they could at least add dump ammunition, since Mechs that are ammo dependent are powder kegs once armor is gone. Overall I was satisfied with the simplified tabletop they had in Beta, even if advanced features/rules that I play with in MegaMek are not present or not yet present.

Perhaps you're speaking for your Mimi Rogers fetish lol. It's not a great movie by any stretch, but I watch it from time to time like I do the Fifth Element (although that's far better), plus it has Joey from Friends doing stuff in Spaaaace saying dumb things to Heather Graham's character and that awesome creature costume that Gary Oldman's character turns into. You know, mindless entertainment.

"Culture of violence" is trickle down my dear politicians. Dysfunction in society, dysfunction of government, in one of the more militaristic violent Empire's of Modern times on Earth might be a problem no? But that's too taboo man.

Games already have the ESRB, its the sellers job to check age and it is also the parent's responsibility.

Once upon I time I used to be more gung ho and pro on guns, not really so much anymore. My father is a hunter, but gun safety was drilled into me. There definitely needs to be something done with restrictions, better requirements would be good too (a requirement for gun safety/ownership courses for example shown on a license - don't have it, too bad better luck next time). Some states require registration with the police (which from what I read the U.K. does as a whole where you submit to them a reason for ownership, hunting, a shooting range club, collector, etc.).
