MechWarrior 4 at Midnight? (No) [Updated]

The front page of Mektek.net asks Are You Ready? and offers a countdown timer that looks like it will expire at Midnight EDT. They may just be baking a cake, or that may be when they are planning on making the promised free release of MechWarrior 4. We shall see. Thanks Hump. Update: The timer has been replaced by a blurb saying: "Coming very, very, very soon," but for Assault Tech 1: Battletech, "an independent, non commercial Activision's MechWarrior 2 series remake using a more advanced DirectX 7 graphics engine, BlitzBasic's Blitz3D."

well actually...I started playing NWN2 a year or so ago...gfx were great, game ran smooth but the the writing/ambience was so pathetically thin I installed BG2 and played straight through, which turned out to be my highlight of the year gaming wise for me.
Personally, I consider imagination to be my window to the world, and nothing interfaces with it better than good writing. Gfx/special fx/looks are great hooks sure, but they hardly nourish the soul and the very idea that they are the most immediate connection to the game, would consign everything to trash faster than a jive talking marketing team taking precedence over genuine wisdom/insight into the human condition.
Each to their own though
